Shiny Charm and Masuda Method

This is the part of breeding with egg moves that I don't like. Have to find a pokemon that knows the move you want then make sure it's in the same egg group. With my luck it never is lol so when it's not and it's the only one you have then you have to find a poke that can know it and is in the same egg group then level it up. I'm going from level 1 to 49 right now :( on level 34. Takes forever without the audino ladies in the battle chateau
Lucky Egg + level 100 lead pokemon + exp. share. one run-through of the E4 usually gets my whole team 30+
 
Updates!
Total eggs to date: 300
Total shiny: 1

What I've hatched: 200 aron, 25 vulpix, 25 poliwag, 25 corphish, 25 marill. All were bred with an English parent of the same species and a japanese ditto. The lone shiny was a vulpix.
Add 125 eevee and 75 swirlix with none shiny to that, and my grand total is now:

500 hatched
1 shiny

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

500 hatched
1 shiny
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.

I will use Kalos parents ONLY (pentagon). I usually hatch my eggs in random order, so I will state the box they are from but not the exact egg number. I will update shinies as they hatch here, and then enter my results in the doc once each batch is completed.

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
