    I was chaining for a Roselia, and after reaching 9 a shiny patch appeared. I went there and a shiny Pikachu appeared! I nicknamed it Orange. I think I will keep it for HeartGold!

    I just caught two shiny Eevees in one chain. It took about three hours. XDD

    Dark Nido, I would recommend looking at some tutorials on YouTube, that helped me a lot.

    I've had THE worst chaining day today... I was chaining Scyther, the shiny that I have been trying to obtain for months with no success, and the shiny patch came up after hours of chaining, but... when I was heading to the shiny patch, my finger slipped, and I accidentally walked into the patch next to it, and the chain broke to a stupid Kadabra... ~Hits head on desk~ I have been trying to get a shiny Scyther for three months now, making that my longest shiny hunt to date, using two methods on two games, and I'm still having no luck in the least. Oh shiny Scyther, will you EVER be mine?

    Got my first 40+ chain last night, of Cubone! =D
    Was really to practice chaining, I feel a lot more confident now!
    Hunted 3 shinies out of it, then just got too bored. Marowak isn't a good fighter anyways.

    If anyones after a shiny cubon message me :P

    first, i wanna thx to the guys who wrote those guides, really helpfull.
    then: i did, i just caught 2 shiny Flaaffy!
    I chained untill 40, then kept on resetting, and guess what: 4 max repels later: the first shiny. Another 26 max repels later: the second shiny.
    Then i terrible screwed up by stepping on the patch directly above me, without noticing it shook...
    The first time in the 3-hour during chain i accidentally stepped on the patch directly above, and ofcourse an Electabuzz was waiting for me... that's murphy for ya...
    but hey, my first shiny in platinum, together with the 2 shiny bibarell and 3 shiny buizel i caught in pearl, i'm starting to get the hang of chaining...

    The other day I got my first siny of Platinum! I was chaining Doduo all day and eventually, with only about 40 repels left, Doduo finally shone for me. I've wanted one for ages.

    Why, just why did it take me so long to find this thread? :|

    I tried chaining Scyther, Rhyhorn, Pachirisu and Eevee, but all my chains broke around 37 for no reason at all. You have no idea how much I hate Meditite and Kricketune.

    I managed to get a Shiny Psyduck though. I wasted around 60 Max Repels after getting the chain to 40, and I had only 90 left, too. I would get some more Psyduck, but my DS is getting old and tends to freeze for no reason at all. It gave up a few minutes after the first Psyduck, so yeah... Luckily, I saved after the first one, but its nature still fails. Oh well. >_<

    Soo.. I got my first Platinum Shiny, yay.

    I need to think of what to chain next. Maybe Sneasel or Gligar but I'm not sure. :/

    Caught a Shiny Beldum after a chain of 40. Yeah, the sandstorm made it tough, but I got it. Good thing my Adamant Synchronizer worked! Trying to chain Machop now.

    The chain won't break due to you hatching an egg, and on a side note it's been ages since I've even chained anything, not since smogon figured out how to RNG abuse pokemon but, I've decided to pick it back up again and was wondering what to chain in my platinum? I've chained a lot of pokemon in diamond so I probably won't rechain the ones I've already done, well maybe ones that I like their shiny sprites, suggestions?

    question: if you use Synchronize to attract a certain nature shiny during a chain, dus the Synchronize pok&#233;mon have to be your first pok&#233;mon in the party, or does it just have to be present in your party?

    You need to have the Pokemon with synchronize at the top of your party.

    Chaining for krabby today! And I successfully chained doduo and pichu this week (got 2 on each...I'm so impatient! I probably could've gotten more...). I'm excited 'cause this is the first time krabby has even been my swarm in platinum! I have been meaning to try chaining again in diamond/pearl but it's so much harder there...

    Eh, I don't know. I've caught more shinies in Pearl than I have in Platinum. Although that could be attributed to the fact that I've had Pearl longer lol. Anywho, my most recent chain was another Floatzel chain. I chained Floatzel once before and got a shiny one with a Lonely nature, which is halfway-decent to use competitively. I caught another shiny Floatzel on this chain, this time Adamant, although with a terrible attack IV. Oh well, I guess I can't complain :-D

    Wow, I don't know what clicked, but something clicked. I finally got around to chaining in my platinum, and in my first three days, I got three shiny phanpys in a chain of 47, a shiny mareep on a chain of 13, and a shiny starly on a chain of three. This over doubles my current collection! I'm taking a break at the moment, but I'll be chaining again!

    I decided to chain Smeargle today and after resetting the Pokeradar for lots of times and using many Max Repels, I finally caught my first Pokeradar shiny with a Luxury Ball at chain #43 or #44. =D
    It has an Adamant nature eventhough I used a Jolly Synchronizer. I wanted to continue the chain a Budew broke it when I moved one step without using a Max Repel.

    Hahaha that happend to me.. I was chaining for an adamant Starly then I forgot where the patch was and I ran too far so the chain broke. I make a lot of careless mistakes while doing this.

    Now, some good news. I found a red Gyarados .
