    Yeah, running is fine. Take it from someone who's encountered 4 shinies already by this method. Although encountering a shiny then killing it/capturing it seems to reset the chain though (from experience..)

    Does anyone know how many variations of grass shaking there are? I never used the poke radar in previous games. The highest I ever got in a chain was 5. -_-

    And u don't need to get a chain of 40 do u? Is it possible to find a shiny pokemon with the radar before a chain of 40?

    What's the easiest places to chain both with fishing and radar for 6th gen pokemon I use to be good with chaining on d/p/pt but can't get the hang of it!! With fishing all I have to do is fish right I can run??

    Guys, is it confirmed that there can be only one shiny path in every chain or hast anyone seen more than one, so far?

    Frost cave. There's a river right besides the bridge which has a huge % at getting Poliwhirls.

    I've heard a few guys saying that it can happen, but the chances are very dim.

    So this means, it is impossible to fill whole boxes with shinies after getting a chain of 40 Pokémon as it was possible in d/p/p? If so, then there's not really a point to try and get usable shinies, am I getting this right?

    Not necessarily. The higher your chain, the better the IVs. You can expect any shiny caught at a chain of 40+ to have at least 1 and maybe 2 or 3 perfect IVs. Bring a Synchronizer and you should be able to catch a useable shiny every now and then. Ofcourse, Synch could fail and the perfect IVs could be in the wrong stats, but it should still be easier than in D/P/Pt where getting 1 perfect IV required some luck.

    Another question: At what fishing chain should I stop and reset? I'm now in the 90s again...

    First, check the Serebii explanation. Here's reall what you need to know: The more you fish pokemon whilst staying in one place and without breaking your fishing combo, known as a "chain", the higher the chances of getting a shiny. We don't know the numbers yet but people have been getting shinies out of this method

    Thanks a lot, that's finally a helpful answer and it kind of motivates me to keep on going after catching two useless ones. Thanks again ~

    In my experience I got all my shinies in low chains (5,6,8). My best chain is 95 and I had plenty of 50+ chains with no luck. A proportional increase of chances doesn't sound right to me. My idea was that after the first 2-3 pokčmon, the game decides if the chain is "lucky" or not and you should expect it within 20 pokčmon. However, some people claim to have caught many shinies at 20+. We just need a bigger pool of statistics to understand this, but definitely there are many weird things happening.

    I have a few questions:
    Which route is the best route for chaining?
    Is it true that higher chains mean higher IVs?

    Apparently, at 40+, IVs tend to be maxed on something

    Do you need to do 40chains to be eligble for a shiny?

    It can be below, or above 40. Heck, if you're lucky, it'll be on your first try (or you might get your chain broken by a shiny of another pokemon ;p)

    No, they could appear as low as a chain of 1, the odds increase as you're chaining up. At 40, the odds are at it's max so you want to stop chaining and reset for a shiny patch.

    Do not give up, I was starting to feel a bit skeptical, and then I reeled a shiny Clauncher in at a chain of 121. So just keep going and so long as it doesn't break, you should find something.

    So I just tried, too, to get more than one shiny patch in one chain.

    After reaching a chain of 40, I needed to reset about 30 times in order to get my first shiny patch. Since the chance of getting one is 1/200, I went on and resettet 400 times. I got no second shiny patch. Of course, even with 400 tries that's no guarantee that it's impossible, because 1/200 isn't that great a chance, but it seems quite hard to get a second one. Maybe the game does even reset the chance of getting a shiny after the first one.

    Considering this, it definitely does make more sense to build up chains of 40 Pokémon again and again instead of trying to get more than one shiny patch within one chain.

    It works with any rod as long as you follow the basic rules.

    I have heard a couple people saying they got 2 shinies from one chain, but at least one person said they got their chain up to 76 when they got their other shiny. I am wondering if the second shiny was actually on a second chain.

    I have heard many more reports of people trying to chain a second shiny with failure than with success. I got mine quickly after a chain of 40, then reset 165+ more times and never got another shiny patch.

    Furthermore, given that we know fishing chains break after capturing a pokemon, perhaps the pokeradar also resets after capturing a pokemon, or getting a shiny patch.
