Good luck with the shiny breeding! Btw, get the Shiny Charm, it will increase the chance of shinies. Only problem is that you need to complete the National Pokedex (that's having every pokemon except for event legendaries).
Let's say, you a 6IVs male Eevee and a 6IVs female Eevee
Male Eevee Female Eevee
HP - 31 IVs HP - 31 IVs
Attack - 31 IVs Attack - 31 IVs
Defense - 31 IVs Defense - 31 IVs
Special Attack - 31 IVs Special Attack - 31 IVs
Special Defense - 31 IVs Special Defense - 31 IVs
Speed - 31 IVs Speed - 31 IVs
What Destiny Knot does is, it will pick 5 random stats from both the male Eevee and the female Eevee and the baby will have those IVs:
HP - 31 IVs - from the father
Attack - 12 IVs - from neither parents
Defense - 31 IVs - from the mother
Special Attack - 31 IVs - from the mother
Special Defense - 31 IVs - from the father
Speed - 31 IVs - from the father
It was a lot of information to take in, sorry xD Pokemon is rather complex for a game that it's targeted at a younger audience. I'm gonna start breeding for a Jolteon tomorrow, will warn you if i get some extra Eevees.
The parents don't have to be shiny to breed for shinies, just a regular one with a regular foreign and it will have an higher chance to breed a shiny pokemon. Just have one hold the Everstone to pass the nature and the other holding Destiny Knot and you can breed for a perfect shiny. I don't suggest this though, it takes a long time.
