Psychic Safari (Abra/Espurr/Duosion)
I'm kind of surprised they added these false patches to the pokeradar. Its not like it was exactly easy to get chains of 30-40 before, I know I would try and hardly ever get past 25. Not to mention the fact there are hardly any patches of grass where its square and perfect for pokeradaring except in the safari, and then they don't even let you use pokeradar. But at the same time I guess I don't mind shiny pokemon being hard to get, that's the way it should be.
On a different note, I'm not sure if hordes actually do increase shiny chances or its just the fact that there are 5 pokemon in them but I already got a shiny wingull and shiny foongus from them and I've never had what I would say good luck with shinies. It seems from what everyone's been saying that maybe shiny chances are increased in hordes, its hard to say for sure. I also got pokerus which I've never gotten before so I'm a little shocked at my luck if the odds haven't changed.

So my Shiny Super Size Pumpkaboo finally hatched, I love it so much
Decided to check out Friend Safari straight after, and around 6 battles in I found a Shiny Poliwhirl. Politoed is one of my favourite pokemon, so getting a shiny one is just amazing. 2 shinies in under an hour, after playing the game for around 100 hours and not finding one.
Do hoard-only Pokemon show up on the radar? Has anyone done this?
"Hopeless, not heartless."
It's really lame that you can't use the Pokeradar in flower patches, as that effectively excludes dozens of Pokemon from being able to chained.
Just as I was about to give up on trying to get shiny Fraxure I finally got one So happy

The only reason I can think of is that you were maybe on your skates, even if you just forgot you were? That's the only time I've had a problem with it, besides not actually being in the flowers or grass.
Caught my first shiny yesterday Shiny mega garchomp looks badass
Encountered a Shiny Onix, looking for a female Mawile in Glittering Cave... Eh. It's cool, certainly, but I also caught a shiny Steelix in Platinum a year or two back (also female, also crappy nature, also crappy IVs and also crappy ability) so I'm not terribly amused. >_>
"After defeating the Elite Four, you can receive the PokeRadar from one of the scientists in his lab. Once you have it, each day the scientist will give you a specific target to encounter using it. If you return having encountered them, he will give you an item such as an Ultra Ball."

Is it just me or does it seem like most people encounter Shinys in the Friend Safari? There's a guy on Youtube who has found like 14 shinys in the Friend Safari in 3 days.
So has anyone had the music change for them when using the pokeradar? I know it changes when you're on a chain but sometimes the tempo will kick up and it will switch to a whole other sort of urgent sounding music. Anyone figured out what that means?
