I've never tried but I don't think so. You are welcomed to try though.

i think (research this, it might apply to 2nd gen games) there is a 1 in 60 chance of the egg being a shiny. If its true make some babies!!!!

Well it might improve the odds to get a shiny but I'm not really sure I never had a shiny ditto.

If you find out can you share it with us please?

I it doubles the the chances. I've also heard if you breed two shinys, you only have 1/6 chances of getting a shiny baby

normally the chances of a pokemon being bred shiny is 1 in 8192 but when you breed a shiny pokemon the chances are 1 in 4096 so its still not a high chance hope this helps

I found a shiny ditto, seriously, in leaf green, it's blue in colour. I found it inside the cerulean cave. I am now trying to breed it with magmar.

Heee, I found one in the mansion :D Like two minutes ago. I was trying to make sure it was actually a random event, super happy that it was.

No, Breeding a shiny ditto with a non-shiny pokemon gives the same chances (1/8192) as finding a shiny in the wild. This was different in g/s/c as when breeding with a shiny ditto then, would yield a chance of (1/64) of being a shiny.

NO, you can not breed a shiny ditto with a non-shiny Pokemon to increase your chances of hatching a shiny. This was only true in the G/S/C versions of the game, and has changed since then. Now, you still have the same chances, 1/8192, of finding a shiny in the wild, as you do hatching one from an egg.
