    I'm sure this is obvious, but trainer battles will break a chain... >_> had about a 10 chain of lairon until a trainer saw me

    Tried to re-use the pokeradar to see if it was my imagination, and checked the chaining tutorial to see what I did wrong. Can't seem to figure it out.
    I know that in the past games the chains would sometimes randomly break for no reason, if that's the case in this generation then I guess it was just bad luck. Keep trying though, I used Pokeradar alot in D/P/P.

    Just a quick question how much information is actually out on this for this generation? I know that around 40 was the max last time but did they change this at all or is it pretty much the same.

    Tipping hasn't been proven to boost shinies and I doubt it's real.

    I doubt that it's real too, I tip all the time and I have yet to see my first shiny yet and from the sounds of it I'm not the only one.

    Congrats to those who have found shinies. I, myself, have yet to encounter or hatch a shiny Pokemon in XY. I'm currently using Masuda Method trying to hatch for a shiny Hawlucha. Currently, I'm at about 350 hatched eggs.

    I haven't tried using the Poke Radar yet, but I'll be sure to try that. I'll also have you know that I have been tipping a bunch of people, so I can't confirm that it increases odds nor is it likely to do so. More likely purely coincidental.

    I never tip cuz I'm greedy and I'm glad I was before I heard this silly rumor.

    I feel your pain. I'm only at about 50ish for Masuda Methoding a Gastly. And that really sucks because statistically with 350 tries there's only about a 17% chance you shouldn't have a shiny.

    After you beat the game talk to one of the professors in Sycamore's lab. He's in front of a machine. From there you just need to use it in the grass and it's fairly easy to pick up what to do.

    You get the radar from the scientist at the bank of computers on the 2nd floor of the pokemon lab after you complete the game. Been trying to chain a shiny Swirlix all afternoon and I've had about 3 chains break over 20 and one on about 26. Kind of annoying.

    I'm going for a "just choose the furthest matching patch" rule and it seems to be working really well. Except when it breaks because I decided to wing it and go to the closest matching patch.

    People have been saying it's not furthest patch but noisiest, most active patch.

    That's why I said matching patch, I'm always going for the ones that shake the most.

    As far as I know it's still 40. Have tested it and twice now 40 has been the magic number still Obviously there is still the chance that it randomly appears before then, for example I had a shiny patch appear at 8 the other day but I got so surprised I lost track of where it was.

    Glad the PokeRadar is back this Gen, I tried using it in Platinum but I could never get to 40...

    Maybe this Gen will be my lucky one and allow me to catch a shiny that isn't set to be one...

    Can you post some pics? You're the first person I've seen who's caught multiple shinies in one chain (6th Gen, so far). Not doubting you, just curious to see if my speculation was wrong (see other post)

    Caught a shiny Bunnelby (it looks like an albino rabbit it's so cute!) on my 2nd pokemon of the chain.
    Not sure what the max/minimum for a shiny to appear is then.
    Now i've got two 6th gen shinies, one in the friend safari (Dedenne) and now this!

    There's no minimum because you can have shinies appear in any random regular battle.

    You're most likely right, I was just referring to the pokeradar as they seemed to usually show up at higher number chains.

    Well yeah. That's because they're more likely to show up at higher number chains. No minimum though.
