when using the radar patches I believe that the PokeRadar exclusive pokemon are easier to chain then anything else you will find using the radar patches...

i think this is because they're easier to see than the regular patches. they stand out more, imo.

Probably but I actually heard that the radar patches were harder in general to chain for some reason & after chaining {tauros} , I'm a believer...
Though yeah, those radar patches are actually hard not to see, just that you get less time to put it into memory before it stops...

Chaning is better for me. I highly suggest to people frustrated, dont run while resetting the radar unless you are completely sure where all the patches are. Dont go into a patch you arent sure of. Its also not always at 40 when you find a shinies. Ive had shinies at 6, 14, and 25 on the chain. oh and save immediately after you catch each shiny. Also although it is said that swarms are easy, they arent really. Ive had better luck with PokeRadar exclusives, and other normal pokes on the route.

this (though the 6, 14, and 25 are just luck on your part; you have to get to 40 to increase your odds to 1/200)


I get lucky quite alot the. This has happend quite a few times

I'd have to go with a smart answer
It depends on the species
some species like beldum take ages to hatch, but also appear in swarms (That can be increased with Magnet pull), In that case its easier, however if you want egg moves you gotta breed.

For me the most successful way to get shinies is to chain, which is why I'm upset it doesn't exist in HGSS

I`ll just go with the random encounter method
Though I wanted to try that masuda method for a while now and its summer
My classes don't start till June 28th so I guessed Why not try it... I'm on the 501st + egg and still no luck [Scyther]

The highest chain I ever got was at 38 with bidoof out of boredom.
