Yes that is what you have to do.

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.
A chain of 40 gives you a better chance for a shiny if you know how to do it. If you don't then don't bother.
