I’m trying to hatch a shiny fennekin with the Masuda method by breeding a German fennekin with an English ditto. Constantly hatching eggs with no success. Am I doing anything wrong?
I am Octavius, weapon collector, poll lover, and overall professional squidbagger.

Nope, nothing wrong. You're using the best method for hatching by having a foreign Pokemon. Unfortunately you've just got to be persistent, could take a while. Using the Hatching O-Power speeds things up a bit, and having the Oval Stone. I know some people try saving before getting the eggs, getting as many as they can carry, hatching, then if there's no shiny soft resetting. Again, just may take time. Hope you get lucky soon!

Having a pokemon with Flame Body or Magma Armor ability also halves the hatching time. It stacks with the hatching O-Power.

Also more time consuming, but if you complete the Pokedex you'll also get a Shiny Charm which helps the odds of getting a shiny. Sounds like a giant task but the GTS is an important asset.

Breeding a shiny is a game of pure luck, even with all the help mentioned. Good luck!

I forgot about those! Good catch.

@ThinkInk How is your pokedex coming along? I can breed anything for you to help you fill it to get that shiny charm. :)

Oops, meant Oval Charm. :P
