    Gah, chaining sucks in this game compared to Gen 4! I've chained lots of shinies successfully in my Platinum, but using the exact same method I used in that the highest I've been able to get is 16 in Y so far. Most of my chains are breaking around 5! It seems like the old chaining technique isn't effective to me. Also annoying you can't see how high your chain is.

    Today on the way through Victory Road I ran into a shiny female Noibat. I captured it and named it Desdemona; here's hoping it blossoms into a nice looking shiny Noivern once I finish EV training it.

    The last shiny I ran into (without use of the PokeRadar) was a shiny Geodude in Heartgold, right after I received my starter and before I had any pokeballs. It was horrible.

    I usually run into at least one wild shiny per playthrough of a Pokemon game, and right now I'm 50+ hours into Y and still nothing. If the odds are so much better, all of a sudden I guess I lost all my luck.

    So does the Masuda Method work if I have a Foreign Pokemon (Jap Trevenant) with an English ditto?

    Yeah, it is annoying that you can't see how high your chain is now. They could have made some sort of utility for it. It does make sense for the old method not to work, seeing as they would change the mechanics around a bit with the re-release of the item. Eventually we'll get a better understanding of them and hopefully there aren't too many random variables involved so an effective chaining method can be discovered.

    You can apparently "chain" for shiny Pokemon by fishing now, as well.

    A fisherman states that you'll be more likely to find rare Pokemon if you fish up Pokemon consecutively, and some reports on other forums are pointing to this meaning that the shiny rate increases.

    All this takes is finding a good fishing spot (The more blocked tiles around the spot, the better) and having a Pokemon with Suction Cups to boost the rate of getting bites.

    Yess, finally found my first shiny in the new games! I wanted to test out encountering shinies in Friend Safari, as so many people seemed to find one there, and randomly chose a friend's safari and began just decisively doing random encounters on the Pokémon there. The type of the safari was Fairy and after a couple of hours just going through wild Pokémon, I'm guessing something like 300 RE's (I was determined to find a shiny there!!), I stumbled across a shiny Spritzee and caught it. I'm beginning to like this shiny hunting stuff, and I've never done it before!

    So I want to try for a shiny Litleo. A friend gave me an American Litleo (I'm from the UK.) and I want to breed it with my boring-old English Ditto. (My Japanese one is on White. -.-) I don't know if they have to be from areas with different languages for the Masuda Method to work. Can anyone give me a hand here? I've only ever bred my Pokémon with the Japanese Ditto before.

    Hey people, we should really try to discover the mechanics of the new pokeradar, because I keep breaking my chains around 20 or so.

    Got to 20 so far with Zoroark, Ditto, and Eevee. It seems that the +4 spaces rule does not apply, at least not always, as far as you enter the same type of grass you entered the first time, it keeps going on... until I get to 20 or so and it breaks

    Any idea?

    Yeah I gave up trying to use the pokeradar for chains. I don't have the patience for this, rather use my time special training. Also 70 hours in and no shinys still. Such bad luck. My only shiny I ever found in the wild in Black/White 2 was a Swadloon, and that was around 170 hours, so I better beat that.

    Why can't I use the Pokeradar at all? It just says about the voice echoing ****.

    Also, (For the 4th time) where can I check how many RE's I have done?

    Remember to use it inside patches of grass / flowers. And you can't use it while wearing rollerskates

    It has to be another language so American litleo/ English Litleo wont work as they have the same language. The easiest way to do it is to put up your litleo for another litleo on the GTS and when you get it back check to see if it has another language next to its name (there is a little grey box on the data screen saying JPN (japan) SPA (Spanish) etc)

    Keep doing that til you get another language one. Or just put your ditto up for another ditto till you get another language one.

    So far i think the easiest way for a shinie is either Hording, Friend safari RE, Masuda.

    I combine methods and masuda by grabbing 5 eggs and then go hording/RE in FS

    Oh and to get an asian ditto is easy, put one up and comment on it with: Assian pref.

    I did that and got my JPN one within 5 seconds. I use the comment for every GTS trade i put up
