    So after getting to 40 and failing with Pancham last night, I returned to route 5 to try again.

    Tonight's target was Skiddo. on my first attempt, I got up to 40, but I stupidly ran one square too far and accidentally stepped into a decoy patch.

    I tried again and got a chain of Skiddo to 40 again. This time, I finally succeeded and walked away with a shiny Skiddo! The game didn't make it easy, though. It took a pretty long time for the shiny patch to appear. Also, I swear the game was trying hard to troll me. There were numerous times where decoy patches appeared directly behind/next to my character. I had to stay on my toes the entire time.

    I'm still kind of bummed that I hit the sweet spot 3 times and only got one shiny from it. Especially given the stupid ways the other two broke. I'm very happy, though. Very tired, but happy.
    A few things about myself:

    Stepping out of the grass doesn't break the chain.

    Anyone knows a good spot for chaining in the early forest? The camera angle is killing me...

    Kind of off-topic but do Zigzagoons hold itens? I've stolen from several of them with Compound Eyes and nothing...

    I'll try this later. I had no luck in D/P but I hope it's better this time.

    Is 40 the max you can chain up to before it fails?

    YES! Just chained a shiny Seaking. Downside is it's a female, so it's more of a Seaqueen, but I couldn't be happier. Made so many rookie mistakes of pulling the rod in too early cause I got spooked.

    This marks my first shiny in Gen VI, my first chained shiny ever and the third shiny I've caught myself

    EDIT: Does finding/catching a shiny break a chain fishing streak?

    Just caught myself a shiny Dragalge, over the moon.

    Question though... I know pokeradar chaining gets a pokemon higher IVs, but does chain fishing do the same?

    No, that's the number people choose to stop chaining and start reseting, when the probability of shinies gets maxed up.

    Default Extreme Pokeradar Testing!!

    I started to chain Inkay with the goal to obtain two shinies during the same chain and catch every pokemon after the chain #40 to make a table of improving IVs during a chain.

    - I managed to catch my first Shiny Inkay during chain #40, by resetting the pokeradar a few times.

    - I decided to continue my chain without resetting anymore because my chaining experience in past chains proved me that no more shinies are there in 40-chain. In some way, I predicted that the radar count was set to 0 for shinies, despite the count for wild pokemon is still 40.

    - Then I catch every Inkay between chain #40 and chain #80, to test their IVs later. My prediction is that in chain #80, any caught pokemon has 4 max IVs.

    - Catching pokemon is easier if the chain is very high, the pokeball is thrown very fast.

    - And then I tried for a second shiny at chain #81 and SHINY PATCH appeared AGAIN!! My chaining testing proves that it's posible to catch 2 shinies in the "same chain", but you need to continue with the current chain until it reaches 80/81.

    I have the feeling my second Shiny Inkay is far better than the first one. I'll check all Inkays I caught between 40-82 later. I'm currently deciding if I should continue my chain until it reaches #120. By the way, I'll upload videos as evidence.

    13mjvr- Thanks so much for the great info. I certainly appreciate people investigating the Pokeradar. If you read a few pages back, you'll find someone has already conducted your tests. In order to get a second shiny patch, you have to faint/capture another 40 Pokemon, and the perfect IVs cap out at a chain of 60 with 3 perfect IVs.

    Now if we can figure out the music...

    Not sure on this. Generally speaking, my first Shiny (in this case Gyarados) had a max Speed IV but everything else was really weak (like single digits). That was after 25 chains. Compare that to my Shiny Gyarados obtained after 80+ chains which had no max IVs BUT all of the IVs were equally *very* high (in the high 20s each). This has been rather consistent. I also find that my early shiny pokemon are easier to catch than those obtained later. Coincidence? Maybe.

    - 1 maxed IV is added every 20 encounters, with a max of 3 maxed IV's

    - You might be on spot then with the shiny rate resetting after encountering one, that would explain how some people still got a shiny patch only a few minutes after their first one, but a lot people not getting more.

    -Pokéballs being thrown fast has nothing to do with chaining, it's a mechanic called critical catch

    So I finally used my Master ball, and I used on a a Shiny Abra! It was during chaining and I knew that it would have teleport. I cannot wait to trade evolve it into Alakazam and Mega evolve it.

    So after this experience, I was wondering, what happens if the wild pokemon teleports out of battle? Will the chain break if that happens as if the user ran away?

    Having 8 or 9 pokemon in one route will inevitably lower their appearance rates. Maybe we're almost always dealing with 10%~20% appearance chains, thus the lower success.

    Found a shiny Bergmite in Friend Safari, it didn't take long :3 I'm guessing using Friend Safari for pokemon that only appear in caves and can't be chained is a good method... I wonder if every pokemon is available in Friend Safari...

    Don't know if someone have tested this, but if Vivillon or its pre-evolutions are catchable in Friend Safari, which form of Vivillon are you going to get?

    Successfully chained for a shiny Bunnelby. Bunnelby was a very low priority, but I figured it would be good practice. It went to 40 and after a few dozen resets, I got the shiny patch. Its shiny form doesn't look that bad at all.

    So I considered myself an expert at chaining in 4th gen and had it perfected. This gen... it's even easier guys. The mechanics have changed but it takes less time if you follow the rules of chaining this generation. I was actually able to teach myself how to chain, it's trial and error.

    Start the chain then follow some simple rules. The main rule is of course to go into patches that have a violent shake. Avoid the slower shaking patches. I counted three variations of patches. The slowest ones are simple to see and avoid. The troublesome ones are the ones that shake somewhat quickly but not 'violently' so to speak. If you can differentiate those patches then you will succeed eventually.

    The next rule of mine is to never enter a patch that is directly next to your character. These have broke my chains whether violently shaking or not. The edges seem to be fine to me this generation also and it is certainly not necessary to go to a patch that is 4 patches away. Just avoid the ones directly next to your character and the streak should keep going. Trust your gut and if you do not like the patches you have seen, be sure to reset. I just caught a shiny pink Ducklett which looks so great I might not even evolve it.

    I haven't read the full thread guys so sorry if I'm just repeating tips but hopefully I can help someone.


    EDIT: Just to add my experience - I have found that after catching one shiny pokemon, that I can not find another shiny pokemon in that same chain. I am beginning to feel that it is impossible to catch more than one shiny pokemon in one chain (Can we confirm this yet or has somebody caught more than one in a single chain?). I would recommend that after catching a shiny that you end the chain. Maybe fly to the nearest town and go back to a route for another chain etc. Hope this helps.

    Exactly the same thing happened to me! I was trying for a shiny Litleo, and started the Poke Radar. The very first patch I walked into (just an ordinary, shaking patch) was a shiny Diggersby, of all things. The music was the normal Poke Radar music (not the upbeat, "OH MY GOD SOMETHING EXCITING IS HAPPENING BUT NO-ONE KNOWS WHAT IT IS YET" music).


    I can also verify that it is *definitely* possible to get two shinies in the same chain, but it seems indeed that the odds will reset once you've found each shiny. I managed to get a shiny Litleo today at a chain of 40. I then kept going, getting all the way up to 83, before encountering a second shiny Litleo. The first shiny at 40 had two perfect IVs, and the second had three perfect IVs.

    I definitely recommend persisting with the Radar, to those who are having difficulty with it. I had absolutely appalling luck with it the first few times I used it, but eventually I got the hang of it. I personally only ever enter grassy patches if they are both violently shaking and four tiles away (and not on a corner or edge) in order to maximise my chances of continuing the chain.

    Got up to chain 40, catched a shiny Yayakoma, continued the chain, went up to chain 70 (rather easily), upbeat music played, decided reseting in order to see if shiny patch appeared, shiny patch appeared.

    The only chaining I can do really in VI is fish chaining,
    I haven't been lucky with actually using Pokeradar.
    I've tried using Gen IV's swarm because... you know swarms are more common and thus the perfect targets for chaining, no such luck here.
    With the decoy patches, it's annoying, not as annoying as the fact in Gen IV you had a way to count your chain onscreen and in VI you have to memorize the times you've encountered a Pokemon.
    Otherwise, fish chaining is the easiest, doesn't have a lot of targets... but... it's interesting.
