    After many hours of pain and suffering, I finally caught my shiny Adamant Zangoose (as well as a Modest and Quirky one). Last night, on my third attempted chain, I made it to 40. As opposed to previous chains, the first shiny showed up after 3 repels. I kept going (finding the Quirky one almost instantly) and 10 repels later, the chain ended on the Adamant one (fortunately it was Adamant). It's got a pretty good spread of IVs so this guy is a keeper. First chain that I've done where I've gotten more than 1 shiny in one go. *raises fists in victory*

    Now I'm moving on to Electrike (Modest, preferably). It's finally his time for a swarm and I need to take advantage of it. For a swarm+Static, this guy has been causing me problems. Highest chain so far is 27. The patch it ended on was the safest patch I could've picked, but I guess the odds were still against me. Hopefully I'll get him by the end of the day. I need to knock out some stuff before I go back to chaining, though....

    Other shinies that I'll go after? I'm patient with waiting for swarms/Trophy-Garden so my list present in those will wait till they happen. But after I finish with Electrike, I'm probably going to go after Duskull, Torkoal (this will be painful...), and Pikachu for my friends. Other than that closest to the top of stuff for myself are Absol and Chingling (so that I can have both him and Chimeco). I plan to try to get all possible shinies eventually so I'm open to suggestions.

    Honestly I've gotten over 50 Shiny Pokemon chaining and all of them took at least over 30 minutes. I must congratulate you on that..

    Where did the other 500 come from? >.>

    Kecleon and hoothoot are current targets, though i have a lot of work to do and probably cant chain much.

    "I've gotten over 50 Shiny Pokemon chaining"
    I've chained probably 490 Pokemon and after doing the math, Encountered 70. These were throughout the whole game Generation (just to be clear) I,II,III and IV. Encountered 70 through these and chained 490 in gen IV..yeah chaining has been my life on this. I have like 37 shiny Shinx

    Got 5 shiny Electrike in about 20 repels. After an hour of continuous searching, I accidentally stepped in a bad patch. So I've got 3 modest ones, however, they've all got the lightningrod ability. But I'll just live with it till the next swarm.

    Anyways, I won't have time to chain for the next few days, but when I start back up, I'ma try to get both Volbeat and Illumise just for the sake of having a shiny set.

    Similarly, chaining is pretty much all I've done in Gen IV. =) I think i have 30-ish skitties from when i began chaining, though pretty quickly I started restricting the number i reset for so my PC didnt get full. I generally reset for the number needed for the evo chain, and maybe one more. Though I dont turn down shiny patches that appear when Im chaining up after resetting.

    lol, and I who thought it was pretty neat having 5 shinies :P

    I haven't chained anything in 9 days. I've been busy gathering bp in battle arena. But my next shiny hunt will be beldum. I am going to get an adamant gardevoir with synchronise. Then I will start to hunt for adamant beldum. Later I will ev-train it for defense and attack.

    Just making sure that you know about magnet pull right? Good luck getting the right natured one - when I chained it I just got enough shinies for the evolutions and got outta there!

    I was trying to chain Eevee in Diamond, and I got about 9 or 10 when I had to re-apply max repels. So I did. But the chain broke as I was walking. Or, at least, the number of eevees I had going on the poketch app disappeared.

    Why is this?

Test this out if you dont get it - reset, note the patches that shook, and see how the chain breaks as you walk away.

    Yup I know about magnet pull. I guess I will empty my team, taking with me only 2 pokemon: one with synchronise and adamant nature, and one with magnet pull. Then I'll switch to the one with synchronise as soon as I see a shiny patch.

    No, where is that to be found?


    btw I'm searching for a beldum swarm right now, but so far dawn's sister has only been bragging about delibirds and doduos over and over again.
    EDIT: YAY!! There's a beldum swarm! Finally!
    That means I'm off to get a pokemon with magnet pull and an adamant pokemon with synchronise

    In order to get a Beldum swarm, you must first talk to Dawn's sister in Sandgem town. She tells you when there is one (a trick to get the swarm is to keep switching the Nintendo DS time in order for days to go by on the game)

    The area where the Beldum swarm is is kinda tough due to the Sandstorm so having a Nintendo DS lite will be good. Turn the light onto the highest so when the patch of grass shines,you will notice it.

    Lastly,pay close attention as the shiny Beldum can come up at anytime..Good luck
    This is it but its not much help now since i'm sure you know pretty much all this.

    Hello, I am kind of new to chaining Pokemon trying to find a shiny and have been wondering what are the most important things to remember when chaining? I don't really feel like I am that good at it but I just really want to do good so I can find a shiny because I have never actually found a wild shiny Pokemon on Pearl. My 3 longest chains are all 12, and when ever I get up to 12 my chain always breaks, I don't know what I am doing wrong.

    Star, it really just takes alot of practice. Have you read the guides in the first post of the thread? Those are really helpful.

    Anyways, when I find that I can't get chains going, I simply reset the radar until a patch 4 squares away shows up. You don't want to take any chances. It might also depend on what you're trying to chain as well.

    It took me about a week to finally get it down so don't feel bad about it. Just work on memorizing the patterns and whatnot and you'll get it eventually. =/

    I've read all the guides on the first post, they did help. My record used to be a chain of 6, but now 6 and 7 are my average, with 12 as my record.
    I'm just going to keep practicing and read through the guides again, but while I'm actually chaining, so I can hopefuly memorize some of it.

    I hate the PokeRadar, some people are good at it and have large collections but I just, can't. It's whatever though, I'm cool with the original way.

    Wow, maybe you could train 2 of them so you could have a shiny of each of its evolutions.
