Hey guys I want to try chain fishing, but there is a possibility of "Nothing is biting" and reeling in the Fishing Rod too slow, (missed opportunity of a maybe-shiny encounter) so does these things break your chain or.. doesn't these things have any effect on your chain at all? And what does chain fishing mean, do you have to encounter as many Pokemon as possible without "reeling in your Rod too slow"?

Does anyone know? I would like to know Thanks!

I've found 2 shinies this week, one in the wild and one after I chain fish. I was not trying to chain fish though, I was looking for a Starmie and in my second reel in I got a shiny Quiwlfish.

Throw your rod out in the water somewhere. DON'T MOVE A SINGLE INCH. Moving even if it's one step will break the chain. Not getting a bite will break your chain. Reeling to slow/to early will also break your chain. Get a Pokémon with Suction Cups ability (Inkay for example) and put him on front of your party; it's almost impossible not to get a bite that way.

I never chained, I like getting the challenge to find them in the wild. So, much more fun!

I haven't found a single shiny Pokemon in the game yet in 13 hours of game play. No, I don't think finding a shiny is particularly easy. Some people just get lucky is all.

I usually encounter ONE shiny in each game after about 200-600 hours.

This time it only took 80 hours.

If I encounter one shiny every 100 hours, I would still call that "Rare".

Hi guys, I thought by myself, hm okay challenge accepted. I started chain fishing this morning, in about 30 mins (after like 17 chains or so) I got a shiny Horsea (female). Now after, to be exact, 35 chains I've got myself a shiny Horsea again (male) :D I was really happy this does work.

@Decimosoma, yes thanks for your tips It is true though many people have tried.
Since my game crashed last week because of the save glitch in Lumiose T_T I will try the Friend Safari one too when I beat the Elite Four (again).

So... back to chain myself a Clauncher then. Everyone else, happy hunting!

I ran into a horde of Wingulls the other day and one of them were shiny (the one shiny was on the sides) I couldn't tell which one, by looking at the bar or the choice which one is shiny, so I accidently knocked out the shiny one. This is the only shiny I ran into so far and Im not planning to use any methods to find one

@Tatsujin Well that is really bad I can explain though if you like;

When ecountering a horde battle, the first pokemon (1 of 5) is on the very most left.
So in the battle screen this is the pokemon on the bottom left. The second Pokemon is on the top left, third Pokemon is right in the middle, the fourth Pokemon is on the top right and the fifth Pokemon is on the bottom right of your battle screen (I tried to explain it as how it would look like in your battle screen where you can select run etc. but you have to choose an attack to see the spots in your battle screen though)

So if for example the shiny Wingull you encountered was on the fifth spot when encountering a horde battle (first one of the right since all those Pokemon are lined-up in a row when encountering a horde battle), then that Wingull would be on the bottom-right spot in your battle screen. I hope I did make this something more clear to you but you could practise in horde battles to find out yourself
