I am too lazy to keep on trying to shiny hunt. I have tried mainly all the methods and all of them take patience and I don't have any. Right now I don't care what type or what pokemon I just want a shiny pokemon I'm even fine with magikarp for pete-sake. I have been trying the consecutive fishing and have been getting decent chains but then i got distracted and reeled in to slow I almost threw my ds at the wall when I was at a chain of 49. I'm very short tempered. Anyway, the whole point of this post was just to ask people if I should keep on trying and what method is better to use. (I'm also posting this to make friends :'( ) So I hope you guys respond and most likely put me down. jk. okay baiiiiiiii :3. (My friend code is 0817-4180-2046. *^*)
Consecutive Fishing is the best way to go. I usually go to a quiet place and use headphones so I don't get distracted. To cheer you up let me tell you the story of my shiny alomomola. So I was working on my pokedex, and I needed to catch both alomomola and lanturn. I went to Shalour city and pulled out the super rod.
1st Hook: Alomomola. Since I needed it in my pokedex, I caught it.
2nd Hook: Shiny Alomomola. A chain of 2! Anyway, just keep trying that consecutive fishing!
I decided to start my Y badge quest. I have about 500 soft resets on the starters so far. Hope I'll get lucky soon!
Congratulations on everyone who recently got a shiny, and good luck to those hunting!
