Men you're standard is so high. It's IV only miss 3 from max (at lv50 it's only miss 1 point of sp.def). If me i consider it's a perfect shiny alreadyI bred myself a shiny Steelix (hatched from the very first egg!!) during the early days of XY, but after that I haven't been intentionally breeding for shinies. A couple of days ago I was breeding for a Dratini for my Battle Maison rain team, but since I have Shiny Charm and was using a foreign parent, I was effectively also MMing at the same time. After two or three batches I hatched an accidental shiny before even getting a pentaperfect Dratini. It had an IV spread of 31/31/31/31/28/31 and hidden ability so I decided to use it.

May i ask, why you chose Brave nature? Which moveset you going to use on it?I started Masuda breeding for a Shinx the other night and it just hatched now. 331st egg.
Shinx - #403 (Brave)
Att: 18 - 20
Not happy with that Attack IV though so I'm going to keep going. Pledging another 669 eggs to bring it up to a cool 1k.
...aaaand the second one just arrived. 1357th egg.
Shinx - #403 (Brave)
SpD: 22 - 23
...male Luxray looks so much better. Guess I'm going one more time. At least I'll have shiny versions of each stage.
Why don't use a physical def set with Bold nature -252hp/252def/4sp.def. With move like Thunderwave - Volt Switch - Snarl - Rest. With its ability Intimidate it can really hard to break you know.I love how Luxray looks, but...it's not a very good Pokemon. I doubt I'll be using it competitively, so I chose Brave just for flavour really; I think it's fitting.
Yeah, I know it's contradictory, but I just want a male Brave one that isn't missing its Attack IV. I don't mind getting multiples for this because I love the Luxray line so it'll be nice to have all three as shiny, especially since when I transfer to future games the shiny form will log in my Pokedex again.Why don't use a physical def set with Bold nature -252hp/252def/4sp.def.

And if you just breed it for the sake of ...breeding it, why going through trouble getting another one? You never used it to battle right so why bother its IV too low?
I think you should give addtion info about how total eggs you hatch, how many shinies you got so the researcher here can properly add your data. (you can used the template i post right before you)Update
Opened 240 excess leftover eggs cause i needed to organize my boxes and hatch all the eggs.
Result : 2 shinies (best result ever)
bold anticipation eevee 93th egg
