Hello all!

I have been working on chaining shinies since last night and I've gotten a chain of 30 on a murkrow. Im so excited that I'm getting so close! I am out of school for the next two weeks and I would like to know if anyone wants me to chain them certain shinies in particular. In return I am looking for shiny legendaries/legendaries,event pokemon, japanese ditto (for starters) shiny butterfree (because I don't have fire red at the moment) and any shiny 5th gen pokemon. I have BW as well as DPtHGSS. Also I have ruby, sapphire, emerald, leaf green (and I have fire red but my brother took it to Missouri with him so I won't have access to it for another two weeks) so you can have any chained pokemon that I can get access to through GBA insertion.

I only believe in respectable pokemon playing. Therefore, all pokemon I trade to you are legit, so I expect the same in return. Please no hacked pokemon, thank you!

You may post here or PM me for a faster reply. My diamond FC (which I will be using to chain my shinies) is 3095 3869 2816 and my name is Paige ;D

yeah I don't really care, you can do whatever you like with it, I have never used it on this game, I imported it from emerald, then never used it lol. :D Oh and can you catch the abra in either a regular pokeball, premier ball, or a masterball? I can provide the masterball if necessary.

I've been looking for a chainer for a while now! If you think you could get one, I'd love a shiny Poochyena or Aron. I even have a Japanese ditto I can give you in return. Oh- I'd like to nickname the whichever pokemon you're able to obtain also, if that's alright.

Out of curiousity, how do you breed pokemon to make them shiny?

@Beanzy100000

I can transfer a shiny eevee to my black when I chain it on diamond. Also, when you breed a pokemon, the egg has a 1 in 8191 odds of being a shiny. Also, just like battles, it ALWAYS has the odds of 1:8191. Doesn't mean after 8191 eggs you're going to get a shiny. The odds are always 1:8191. However, if you breed a pokemon from, say America, with a foreign pokemon of the same breeding group it cuts it down to about 1:2048. Which is a heck of a lot higher than 1:8191. Which is why japanese dittos are so important and you see a lot of requests for them (or at least I have) because they can breed with anything excluding legendaries. Hope this helped:)

@Larq

I can get you a shiny aron :D I don't chain all day everyday though and I'm doing people who asked first, first. So it might take awhile! However, my first shiny took me around an hour so it shouldn't be TOO long ;D

Also, Larq,

you can nickname it! Just let me know what you wanna nickname it and I will.

So shinies dont breed to make shinies?

No the chances would be exactly the same.

:D You're awesome! Thank you so, so much.
And congrats on getting your first shiny via chaining! I tried doing it so many times, and always ended up messing it up. It takes a lot of patience to do that.

I only wish it was that simple. The only way to increase your chances of hating a shiny Pokemon in an egg is the 'Matsuda Method', where you use a Japanese Ditto.

urgh... it just gets harder and harder.

@Beanzy100000

Chaining is where you use the pokeradar (DPt) to chain pokemon and have a higher chance of getting shinies. It is very complicated and took me awhile to understand :P You can find a lot of information on it including how-to tutorials by using serebii, bulbapedia, smogon, youtube (for how-to videos. There are a lot), wiki.answers, ehow, and a lot of other sites. Just search "How to Chain for Shinies" on google. It will come up with videos and websites. Ignore if they say "How to chain for Shinies on Platinum/Diamond/Pearl" because they are all the same method. If you have any further questions regarding shiny pokemon feel free to PM me about it:)

chaining is easy, the fact people want IVs with shinies now kinda made chaining pointless

Just because there is less demand for it does not mean it is pointless. Not everyone is interested in only Pokémon with good IVs.


@DemureGirl: That being said, I'd love it if you could chain me a shiny Ditto. I could RNG breed a Shiny Caterpie for you in return. I've never had the patience for chaining :P.

If you can RNG for SHinies why dont you RNG for IVs?
