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

    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
