I tried chaining for a roselia a few days ago so I could evolve it and have a set of budew, roselia, and roserade, but to no avail. :/

I've been chaining off and on for the past several months and have caught 19 separate shinies (and about 18 extras), most in one chain was four surskit. Right now, I'm going after eevees and hoping I'll have the luck and patience to get eight.

Also the last shiny I got was a ralts when I wasn't really looking for shinies in particular. I was going after synchronizers and had just started a chain, I was on the second link, all four patches were normal glittery patches and stopped shaking at the same time, I chose the one furthest away, shiny male ralts. Yeah I was pretty surprised. He's calm, so he's gonna be a gardevoir.

I owe pretty much all my shinies to the Pokeradar. My shiny Roserade is my alltime favorite. Buneary, Ralts, and Shinx are also some of the ones I got recently.

To chain for shines with the Radar, you'd need Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, yeah. You can catch shinies in any game, but chaining in a Sinnoh game can make it much easier.

You can get Shinies by usual wild encounters at HG and SS. It's only that this chaining method can be done in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, since Poke Radar exists in those games and not anywhere else.

EDIT: ninja'd XD

Just making sure, you ALWAYS reset the radar if there are two patches touching? What if they're in a diagnol?

Edit: Got a Ponyta chain up to 40 and already got 5 shinies. Though only one girl...

I was trying to chain Dunsparce, when I walked into a normal shaking patch and a shiny Bibarel popped up! Yeah, Bibarel, meh...but still, chance find!

Dunsparce are swarming again today, going to try again. I got Pidgey up to 40 three times a few days ago, and I broke them all. ¬_¬
