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!

You're both wrong. It increases your chances of finding a Shiny by exactly...





A LOT.






Okay, maybe that "exactly" didn't make that much sense. I should've put some stupid number up there... But I HATE math.

Yes that is what you have to do.

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.

Awesome. Thanks for the great tips. I will PM you if I am still a bit confused. Until now I was clueless when it came to finding shinies.

After you use the Pokéradar once and KO or capture the Pokémon you find, the Pokéradar automatically activates again, and you can find another Pokémon. If it's of the same species and you KO or capture it again, the Pokéradar wil activate again. You can keep this up for as long as the same species of Pokémon continues to appear, and stringing them together this way is called "chaining." Pokétch app. #20 keeps track of how long your longest chains are and what Pokémon you chained each time.

Well this guide was very helpful (even if I didn't see a shiny yet).

But the most upsetting part is that the only shink I have seen in my diamond game was a wooper. but I was in the marsh safari-zone-like-place And it fled. I cried. It was PINK!!

How do you get your chain so high? D:
I have to start resetting at 25 just so my chain doesn't break like it always does. >.>
