The Masuda Method is a popular method of shiny hunting in the Pokemon community. It was developed by Junichi Masuda to encourage trading with players around the world. The shiny hunting method was, therefore, named after him by the community.
The most common instance of Masuda Method (often abbreviated to MM Breeding) is a foreign Ditto being put in the daycare, breeding with whatever other Pokemon the player has (often) caught themselves. Breeding a Pokemon from another country like Germany, China, or Japan, with another Pokemon not from that country will boost the odds of finding a shiny Pokemon.
"I've been shiny hunting like crazy this past weekend. I Masuda Method bred for a shiny Bulbasaur and got it within the first 30 eggs!"
