I’ve been shiny hunting wooper Masuda Method in my shiny only SS run. However, the wooper is using is hacked international, meaning I caught it and just… hacked the nationality. I don’t think it’s working as it should. So basically, I’m looking for a replacement Pokémon.

Now, I have other Pokémon I could use, but I’m really worried about egg laying speed. As I’m not hatching the eggs, I’m mainly focused on how many they can lay. What would be the fasted Pokémon for my wooper to breed with?

I think egg laying is boosted if the parents are the same species or different OTs, so you should maximize the egg laying speed as long as you stack both of those things.

The highest possible egg laying chance is 70% every 256 steps. This is achieved by breeding 2 Pokemon with the same species (2 Woopers in this case) and different OTs.

The highest possible egg laying chance is 88% if you also consider Oval Charm.
The question asked about SS, where oval charms don't exist.

This is true. For what you should breed Wooper with, I assuredly say Ditto. Egg production speed is the fastest with a Ditto and, like sumwun said, if they have different OT's, then the egg hatching will be even faster.

Source: experience, I actually tested egg laying speeds with Ditto and a normal parent a couple years ago in Ultra Moon. The example I used then was a Tepig.

They will not be different by very much. Anyway, this answer doesn't matter anymore, OP has already selected a BA
To make it even worse for y’all I just remembered I have a Japanese copy of Diamond. Buggers keep fleeing on me though.
The chance that Ditto and Tepig lay an egg on your first try AND your 2 Tepigs do not lay an egg on your first try is 10% (if they have same OT and no oval charm), so your test result could have easily been a coincidence.
I had oval charm when I was testing.
Then I think there was an 8% chance to get your result by pure coincidence.
