Masuda Method doesn't work well since it takes soooo long to hatch eggs. Can anyone help me?

I guess you could visit Friend Safaris in Pokemon X/Y while the friend whose Safari you visit is connected to the Internet.
The [Friend Safari][1] seems to me to be your best option.

>Pokémon encountered in the Friend Safari have a **1/512** chance of being Shiny, or eight times more likely than normal; this chance is unaffected by the Shiny Charm.


However, this rate is equal to the Masuda Method:
>Also from empirical evidence, the probability of hatching a Shiny Pokémon through the Masuda method while using a Shiny Charm is 1/512 as well.

[Source][2]


Thus, if you don't have access to the Friend Safari, my suggestion for you is to keep trying. However, **if you do not have the Shiny Charm, the Friend Safari is your best bet.**

NOTE: I don't think you can get Ralts in the Friend Safari, though, so this may not be all that useful after all.. >.>

There is no way other than what I listed above, other than the Masuda Method or DexNav Chaining
