I rather liked Wulava’s OP so I’ll C+P it for simplicity.
- You don't need to go for the square four spaces from you (or leastways the one furthest away).
- Edges may be safer, but that could use more testing, some people say they are, some not.
- Slightly moving spaces will break your chain, so avoid those.
This all falls under the caveat that the staff doesn’t want shiny discussion in this thread since it’s easier to keep it to one single thread. There’s a thread for that over here in General Pokemon Discussion.
So please keep discussion to the mechanics please. And encounters of pokemon you find via PokeRadar, of course. Thanks!
