Yes, religiously. I make a nice chain, and then head into a patch I think shook just like the rest, and it turns out to be a Bidoof or a Roselia, which I have been having the most problems with. I know it takes patience and time, but it still doesn't stop me from getting a little peeved at those poke's, lol. Are you good at chaining? How long did it take you to get your first shiny? Just guesstimating, lol.
