    Just a note on chain fishing that I feel I should share... I've heard from a few sources that catching the pokemon will break your chain, but just recently I was catching Luvdiscs for heart scales and by the tenth one I happened accross a shiny. Between several catches I also checked the menus and moved items, so I'm pretty sure that none of that affects the chain either.

    I didn't know it was 50 steps to reset the radar, I just assumed it had to be 100. That will save me some repels! Pokéradar doesn't agree with me yet but chain fishing does so that's entertaining me for now.

    With regards to the patches of grass that appear when using the radar, I was under the impression they had to be of the same kind of shake as the initial one from what it says on the page on Serebii. I didn't realise each patch was different and that "violent shaking"was always better, that will help a lot.

    Edit:
    I was trying to get to grips with the Pokéradar last night before I went to bed. Usually it's not a good idea for me to do anything when I'm tired but I got the best chain so far, 7! Not quite sure when I'll hit the magic 40 but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually.

    It's funny...I decide to chain just to make leftovers farming with Pickup more interesting. On the 3rd chain, the upbeat music plays and a shiny patch appears....allowing me to score a Shiny Pancham.

    No luck on gaining any extra leftovers though, lol

    I've been as unlucky chain fishing for shinies as I have using the radar or breeding via the Masuda method. Some people seem to constantly run into shinies, but I'm not one of those people. I have the shiny charm, but so far it hasn't done a lick of good.

    FINALLY! After weeks of weeks of chaining I finally got my first chained shiny at chain of 17! W/ highest chain at 36 & 37 for Scatterbug respectively, obviously I dont think I'll ever get to 40 even I think I always do it right.

    Anyways, I didnt get shiny Scatterbug I always wanted (which is good since I finally got shiny Vivillon my Jungle pattern thru Safari, and the shiny form is MEH).
    I got a Shiny blue Flabebe instead, and was quite lucky since I wasnt really serious when I chained it w/ a rather small area & I often risked taking the edged patches and so on...
    But to my surprise, the ting-a-ling shiny patch suddenly popped up, and I quite liked it since its more noticeable this time...

    Tried and failed miserably at chaining Furfrou. I try to do everything correctly, but the highest chain I've gotten so far this gen is 11. I think that the flower patches are a nice aesthetic in this game, but I can't tell the difference in shaking in flowers to save my life. I wasn't incredible at chaining in gen IV, but I was at least halfway decent!

    Guess I have to stick to fishing and breeding for my shines for now.

    Quick n00b question here...you can chain fish with the Old Rod, right? I've chained waaaay more than 40 Magikarp now and still haven't gotten a shiny. I just did it in the same spot with goldeen and corphish with the Good Rod. I just need a little moral support here!

    Also I just read about having to fish in a corner. My first four fishing chains ended in shiny's and were just on the edge of the pond on route 3. Is there any truth to this corner thing or is it just like holding down and B to turn a pokeball into masterball??

    Kinda iffy on chaining though chain fishing...since apparently the value of fish shinies has decreased by a whole lot.

    You can chain fish with any rod and fishing in a spot surrounded by things gives you more chance to get a bite, but it's not necessary.

    It took me 92 Magikarp to get a shiny yesterday. Took around 60 for my Luvdisc this morning as well.

    Yeah, I finally got it at a chain of 119, thanks! All the rest of mine have been under 40, got a luvdisc at 34 today.

    Aaaaand I had to come back to edit this since I just got a Relicanth on a chain of FOUR. Just four. Yay for me!

    Well, I suddenly become the expert of chaining w/ Pokeradar now.

    Its NOT an easy process if you read my previous posts. And dont dare to say chained shinies in Gen 6 are worthless, I don't read many ppl succesful in chaining w/ pokeradar. Especially you can get only 1 shiny from 40 chain now. So yeah, they're precious...


        Spoiler:- Pictures of all my chained shinies:


    All there except shiny Plusle (I traded it). And easy chain w/ Static ability pokemon.
    Its the only shiny that appeared when the upbeat music played. The rest, except the blue Flabebe are gotten after 40 miserable chain.
    I broke 40 chain of Swirlix and Fletchling one time.

    Trying to catch a Shiny Gyarados but I keep breaking the chains.

    Well, might as well join the discussion. Alright, so I never chained in DP, but I thought I'd give it a shot since I got my first three shinies in Gen 4 & 5 (a Flaffy, Watchog, and... Patrat. Go figure, right?). Now, I will argue that the distance the grass is from the trainer doesn't matter. I've done a chain of 12 (my biggest chain, BTW) and gone to the square directly next to me multiple times in this chain (Caterpie - BTW). I've been learning as I go, but I agree with a lot of the comments (NOT SPAM!) - there are more than two types of shaking grass, and it definitely pays to have the music turned up (this is from personal experience). I should say, however... that I have gotten no shinies from chaining yet (cue sad music).

    But I've been trying for a shiny Smeargle on Route 7 lately and I have a question - does the flowers' color matter? I think it does and I've been keeping to one color just to be safe, but I'm curious. Also, not gotten the strange souvenir yet but... it is odd that its an item that can be equipped rather than a key item... isn't it? I think it should be looked into. Anyways, I also thank the many posters on here for the tips I've received by reading and hope someone can give me an answer on the Route 7 thing.

    Oh, one last thing - I can't chain fish. Seriously, I tried for a half-hour and never got more than 2. Is there a trick to it? Should I have a Cradily (ability: suction cups) in the lead of my party? Are there other tricks to chain fishing? Is there any way to chain for a shiny member of the Honedge family? Any help I could receive would be appreciated. Thanks!

    My first chain fishing fiasco took me 249 catches to get a Poliwhirl. I have caught others with less than twenty. I've only accomplished one Poke Radar shiny, Skiddo.

    kingmn2 - The only advice I would give on chain fishing is to try and fish in a corner of the water, such as directly next to a waterfall. I have had chains break for no reason when I don't use a corner, but I've only broke chains by my own error when fishing into a corner.

    Suction Cups lead would really help. And like what Audiomeleska said, go fish in a corner. Or in an area surrounded by rocks.


    And unfortunately there's no way to chain Honedge. Your only way to get a shiny one is via RE or MM.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.

    Yes it does.

    If the Pokémon is in the lead spot, chance of encountering a Steel-type wild Pokémon increases to 150%.

    Thanks for all the advice! Still no shinies yet, but I've gotten better (Max radar chain: 20). Gonna try some fishing later.
