For example, in my Sapphire, I was looking for a shiny Lunatone and I found a shiny Zubat instead
. If I had been in my Pearl, I could have used the Pokéradar to eliminate my chances of finding a Zubat and concentrate solely on Lunatones. However, even if I had a 100-Lunatone chain, the odds of finding a shiny one as the 101st would still be the same.
What are you talking about, when you chain, the chances of finding a shiny increases by just a little bit. and its 1/8125 chance of finding a shiny gets lowered ervery time you catch or defeat a pokemon. and let me ask you one thing, why would they make shiny patches if the encounter of finding a shiny pokemon stays the same? If your going to be on this site, get some freakin' common sense!
