I haven't been having trouble chaining up high numbers, I have 45 Natus chained right now, and I'm looking for a shiny patch... the only problem I'm having is that every time I reset the radar, if I do suspect a shiny patch it always appears right behind my character... I can't tell if it's shiny or just rustling a lot... only thing I hate about this game is that you can't see behind your character....

Any other complaints?

they dare put trapinch/vibrava in route 228 (or whatever) where there's a sandstorm >_< lol
it's hard enough to find those in there, let alone chain a lot of them

I should've just gone to the patches behind my character that I suspected to have been Shiny... I bet it's all because I had a Modest Synchronizer...

one shiny that i really want is a beldum, today i have them swarming.. "excellent" one mite say, "get out there do your thing and chain up and get that shiny". Problem its swarming on route 228 which makes chaining next to impossible with that stupid sandstorm.

Well, back to your question...You'll know that Natu's shiny if the patch sparkles a light blue, and never go behind you while chaining, the radar only effects the screen that you can see when you use it, so if you go back you could break your chain.

actually it works on every patch so sometimes the tile right behind the player rustles too
you just have to experience the different amounts of rustling/shining behind you and you'll get it eventually

If a Pokemon comes out of no where, and you didn't use the poke-radar, try using Super Repels / Max Repels and put a high leveled Pokemon in front, namely one that's a higher level than the Pokemon you're chaining. Of course, I'm not an expert at chaining. Barely tried. Also the chances of finding a shiny patch whether or not you chained a lot, ( I believe) is still low. If you believe you see a shiny patch at places that you can't see because your character is blocking the view. It's best that you stay away from it, so you don't break your chain.

>_< I am doing everything I did when I found my 2 shiny Doduos... But all of a sudden I was chaining Oddish, got up to 40, was reseting my radar, I went down 6 steps and still had it, then I went down 6 steps again and the system freaks out and I lose my chain... GOD I really am starting to hate chaining, that's 2 shinies I've lost out of that I could've gotten...

Oh and I don't know what's up with the shiny Patches, I've never seen a blue gleaming patch other than in videos, I've seen a few different ones, like ones that have a small star floating around on them, or ones that have a what I can only describe as a white covering it all the way with stars dancing on top of it... To be honest I've only seen the shiny patch 4 times and it's never what I see on the other peoples videos.

I've been chaining for 3 days now and still no shiny >.>

Whats the average number of chains ppl usually do before a shiny appears? And yeah not being able to see whether the grass patch right behind you is shining can be very frustrating.

most people say 40 is a good number to stop on, highest chains I've ever gotten were 45 and out of those was Doduo and I caught 2 shinies in that chain. I was lucky in two aspects, 2 shinies, and they're both good natures.

I think the game somehow knows when you have a synchronizer you wanna use to increase the chance of a good natured shiny because I have a quite Gardevoir I was gonna send out when I get to the shiny patch... but whatever it didn't work out like that because I somehow walked out of range when it was in range the first time...

GAH!... I'm going to kill someone... I was chaining Elecktrikes and I got up to 48 and I think some patches came up shiny but they're always right behind my character T0T... I was reseting for almost an hour... I WANT MY HOUR BACK... that's 3 shiny's I have probably missed out on because you can't see behind your character...

At least you can chain. The longest I've managed to chain was...three Bibarel, and then a Staravia came by and screwed that over.

yeah, but that's 3 chains that should've produced a Shiny, which they probably did but didn't thanks to me not being able to tell "is that a shiny patch? but why would it appear behind my character?" T0T Oddish, Natu, and Electrike... I'm going to try one more time, if I suspect a shiny patch, I'm going for it!

I'd have to say I'm pretty good at chaining, not to brag I have 84 snubulls in a row (2 shinies), 71 bronzors (1 shiny), 66 corsolas (those are my top three followed by 52(plusle(1)), 52(voltorb(1)), 51(minun(1)), 2(shinx(1)))

I've only gotten 2 shiny Doduos between numbers 40-45 when my chain ended, 3 shiny patches came up but it was impossible to get to the one shiny patch since that pokemart dude is standing there. What a place for one to appear no?

One of my friends keeps getting shinies after only 20 chains. I don't know how, maybe he's just really lucky. He got like 5 shinies in 5 days, and one was a beldum.

Well I'm not really one to talk I can never get more than 11 lol.
