Hello ^_^!

Have you been experimenting with the Pokeradar and would like to share something? Or maybe you have a theory about the pokeradar raising shiny chances. Either way, this is the thread for you!

To start off, here's a theory I made on pokeradar raising shiny chances:

I think I may have a theory that seems pretty believable.

Okay here goes:

Many of you probably know this, but for those who don't, here it is:

Shinies are RANDOM. They're rareness is 1/8192 or 0.00012207%.

Also, when a battle starts, the game picks a number. If that is a "shiny number", the pokemon is shiny. BUT, the game does not have 1 shiny number and 8191 other numbers, but EIGHT shiny numbers and 65528 other numbers. But as 8 evenly divides into 65536, we just say 1/8192.

Here is where my theory comes in:

For every ONE Pokemon you have in your chain, there is one more "Shiny Number"

EXAMPLE: You have one pokemon in a chain. So the rarity of a shiny is now 9/65536 or 1/7281.77777 or 0.00013732%, a.k.a. slightly better.

Most people say 40 is a good place to stop, let's calculate the chances of a shiny appearing with this theory.

8 + 40 = 48 (Pretty easy :p)

65536 (divided by) 48 = 1365.33333

RARITY:

1/1365.33333 or 0.00073242

And that's my theory :)

NOTE: All calculations were done with my trusty Calulator App on my very useful Poketch. You should try it!
