    I don't think it matters, the chances are the same as long as at least one is from another region.

    Add 125 eevee and 75 swirlix with none shiny to that, and my grand total is now:

    500 hatched
    1 shiny

    Another
    Another really good method is to have 2 Lucky Eggs on pokemon you want to level, put them in spots 2 and 3 respectively, go to Cafe Le Wow, Put a good lvl 100 sweeper up front with amulet coin, activate EXP lvl 3, go into a rotation battle. You easily go into the 40's or 50's and with amulet coin and the balm mushroom rewards you get your money back

    Ok, I started hatching Goomy Eggs. Ended up with a present! Modest Gooey 5IV (missing Special Attack AGAIN! GOD DAMN IT!) Goomy. The best part? 150 eggs AGAIN! Ever since I gave up on Charmander, I've been on a GREAT roll!

    Eggs: 3150
    Shinies: 5

    I hatched 50 more eevee eggs, and got a shiny! So that makes my total:
    550 hatched
    2 shiny

    This eevee was the last shiny that I really wanted and I probably won't purposely try to hatch another shiny, so I won't keep track of eggs any more. I had pretty good luck with my shiny quest. I'm happy.
    But wow, it's a female modest eevee, has its hidden ability, and Iv's appear to be 31/?/31/27/31/31 That is incredibly lucky! What should I evolve it into? I'm leaning towards espeon so I can name it Palutena. 'Cause espeon is green, like her hair. :) Decided on espeon.

    Ok, so at 600 eggs, no shiny.
    Decided to switch it up, I'm now using an English Fennekin and an Italian Ditto.

    I know it doesn't help my chances but I guess foreign Dittos are just a wives tale for luck >.>

    Hey there guys I just got my Shiny charm last night and I was wondering I'm gonna pledge 300 eggs but I'm gonna do things a little differntly I won't hatch my eggs I'm just gonna keep them in my boxes then use Mas Dumper to check which ones if any have a ESV that matches my TSV, since those would count as being shiny, plus I can just upload my progress with the spreadsheet that it spits out
