If you were to breed a shiny ditto with a non-shiny Pokemon, would your chances rise of the Pokemon being shiny with ditto being shiny when doing the masuda method? Or would it still be the same?
Ditto Shiny Japanese
Other Pokemon non-shiny other language
So basically if one is shiny, would your chances be higher of the bred Pokemon being shiny or would it be the same

All about your questions is here:

No, Pokemon being a shiny does not influence chances of it's offspring being a shiny in any way.

Nope. The chances would stay the same.

No. When I say experience, I mean having read it from articles over time. So I just have that knowledge from things I have read in the past.

Unfortunately the parents' shiny status don't affect the offspring D:
However, a good way to increase the chances of the offspring being shiny is by possessing the Shiny Charm (Gen V only).

Of course, even with the Shiny Charm it's still a 1 in 1024 chance the offspring would be shiny. But it is eight times more likely than otherwise.

Hope I helped. :)
