Does that have the same effect?
    I don't think that there's any way to stop it. You don't need to get the same pokémon to continue the fishing streak though.

    Has anyone figured out what that weird PokeRadar music means?

    I've got into chaining just a little while ago, trying for Skiddo because I really want a a male shiny Gogoat. I was resetting my radar and running around and then boom, Moltres appeared - at first I was like "wut", but after a second I nearly shouted out a very nasty word, haha. Thanks god it didn't break the chain. I wonder how roamers work in this gen, I can't recall them just suddenly appearing without the player changing their location...

    Still chaining, I am only at 17, but that's good for my skills anyway as I am not really good with XY PokeRadar. I hope I can get to 40.

    EDIT: Touched circle pad at 19. Seriously gamefreak, why did you do this?

    I literally read that seconds before I read your post. I wish I had have known that earlier.

    Second Pokeradar testing:

    Chaining Pancham in the best flower area of the Game. Managed to achieve chain #40 quickly by following my safe patterns, and taking into account the adittional decoy patch.

    Shiny Patcham appeared by making 26 resets. Caught it and started to reset again for another shiny.... However, I used 120 max repels and couldnt find another shiny patch.

    The question is: Has another chainer been able to get a second shiny patch after catching the first shiny? This information is crucial for chaining.

    I assumed that catching another shiny during the same chain is not allowed in normal conditions, so I started to test other possibilities in my Pancham chain... Because come on... The great part of Pokeradar Chaining is that you can catch an entire box of shinies. So, I continued with my chain up to 50 until the weird music appeared. I wanted to test if the switch of music is a sign that a new shiny "has arrived" to the grass. Unfortunately, I was almost out of Max Repels and I couldnt make any conclusion. Maybe you can test it in your future chains.

    Sorry if this is counted as spam.

    This is ridiculous. I'm chain fishing and I pressed A as soon as the !! came up but it said I reeled it in too slow. I know I didn't and that my game just has it out for me. At one point I flinched, then pressed A and still managed to reel it in. Anyway, I was curious as to what that chain was so I went to the fisherman dude who tells you about it. I know this chain was the one he was talking about cause my last one was 20-something.

    94. I had a chain of 94 and I still didn't find a freaking shiny. Why does everything hate me?! But in seriousness, please tell me someone else has had the same problem with reeling in that I had.

    Virtually everyone has found that a second shiny patch cannot be found after the first until another 40 pokemon are added to the chain. I've gone through hundreds of max repels trying to get another shiny patch to no avail. Now I just leave after I catch my shiny.

    I was checking my chained Shinies and all of them have amazing stats, at least two max IVs. I also checked some abras I chained and caught before for synchronize and I found they have better stats if they were caught higher on the chain.

    So that's what I'm thinking now: they created a clause of only 1 caught shiny per chain. But they added new features for chaining allowing you to get better wild pokemons as high as you achieve the chain. So that way, you won't need lots of shinies to search one with good genes. In fact, it's posible that you could get a better shiny in a chain of 50, than in a 40-chain. That's probably why the Game allows you to see more shiny patches if you didn't catch the previous shiny.

    I'm going to chain again in a good spot and catch pokemons of +50 chains to see if their IV values are improved further.

    Quick question guys for those of you who have found a shiny in Friend Safari. Do you faint the pokemon or run when looking for shinnies?

    Okay was doing this earlier, started with Relicanth, then it turned into a Dragalge. I had a few Dragalges, then the chain broke after like 4 and went back to a Relicanth again. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    -I have Inkay in front of party, it's fainted though, but it should still work
    -I'm standing in the same place on the water
    -I'm running from the battles
    -After I run, I press Y, then the left button to go to the super rod
    -Immediately press A, haven't gotten a too fast, slow, or etc message yet

    Why is the chain breaking/pokemon changing?

    Yes it is. But even if it wasn't doesn't that only effect the rod and how you get a bite everytime, not what kind of Pokemon you catch?

    To my knowledge, but correct me if im wrong, this is how it works

    Pokemon first in your party needs ability suction cups. Helps if you make it hold the smoke ball item so you dont have to faint it. It will help it run from the pokemon you encounter. As for the pokemon you encounter, it wont be the same one all the time. Your chain does not break if you encounter a different one in the next bite. just keep fishing with out a miss and eventually you will encounter a shiny. From what ive read, some people just restart the chain if its going to high.

    In the Friend Safari, I ran every time. My shiny Audino from there may have just been dumb luck. I was actually Compound Eyes and Frisking Chansey's (for lucky eggs) ... and running if I didn't find what I was looking for. After about an hour (give or take) the Shiny Audino appeared. Like I said, coulda just been dumb luck. If not, well, running seemed to work?

    ------------------------------

    I wanted to make a short post about my fishing results. I chained 168 before I ran out of gas this time. Here's my results ... each digit representing a bite and each (*) digit representing a shiny. For the record, I ran from every battle and never moved from my spot, saved or changed screens.

    1234567890

    1234567890
    12345678

    I seem to be getting my shiny hits fairly early ... usually within the first 20 to 30 bites. After that, it seemingly takes FOREVER for the next shiny to surface. Occasionally I've gotten 3 shiny pokes within a 120 chain period. Usually it goes like that posted above though. Not sure if this helps anyone. Just wanted to add my results to the record.

    Has anyone tried chaining in patches other than the louder rustling ones? There might be some differences.

    Also, I'm not really convinced we can't catch more than one shiny per chain. I mean, chaining isn't easier than it was in Gen4 and catching shinies by consecutive fishing doesn't end its chain. It's easy to think only one shiny pokemon can be caught per chain but, sometimes, shinies just take hours to appear. Add that to people getting tired and guessing it's impossible and as the word gets passed around, people start trying less and less.

    It would be a really dick move since we now can chain while fishing (rather easily) and start completing a shiny dex.

    The PokeRadar is driving me mental. My highest chain was high 30s before I stepped in a wrong patch. Usually I only get 10-15 before I make an error.
    Chain fishing is fine but theres only so many shiny remoraids and poliwhirls one person needs. I've found most times I get a shiny in under 50 casts so it is definitely easier.

    I was just wondering why I got "Not even a nibble" even though I have a Suction Cups Octillery at the front. I'm not really complaining as I already caught a Shiny Magikarp from that chain, but I was trying to go for a higher number.

    I'm feel frustrated when trying to do Pokeradar chaining. I come so far then I mess up in some point.
    (Accidently pressed Roller Skates, accidently stepping out of the grass areas, wrong pokemon appearing, and no pokemon appearing at all.)

    Suction cups only ups the chance of finding them, it's not fail safe, as it's not guaranteed it'll bite.
