Yes. If you "don't even get a nibble", it breaks the chain. The best way to (almost) guarantee a bite every time is to use a Pokémon with Suction Cups or Sticky Hold first in your party and find a fishing spot that is pretty secluded, like a dead end of a water route or besides rocks/beach/land. You can run away from the fished Pokémon and continue fishing until you find a shiny.

EDIT: Finally got that damn shiny Goldeen (was hoping for Corphish though haha), after an hour of fishing and a chain of... I don't even know.
Why fish in a dead end?

No luck on scent hordes yet, encounter and stealth o-powers don't seem to have much if any bonus effect so far though the o-powers will probably needed to be tested alot more.

Tried the fishing technique for the first time last night.

Route 16:
1st chain- 34 and nothing
2nd chain- 22 and shiny Poliwhirl at 20

If you're looking for a shiny, get out there and fish! I was a Pokeradar master in DPPt, but it's gotten harder this generation. Fishing has to be the easiest method.

Ugh, my frustration just keeps growing -_- Still no shinies for me, chaining has had no results and MMing isn't turning anything up yet either *sigh* I think shinies hate me... I shall still continue! I am so determined this time around to find my first shiny.

I'm not sure, but everybody who has mentioned the method has put that as a requirement.

I have not had any success yet, but I do know that I did manage to get a bite every time in the place I chose (along with a Suction Cups ability Lileep).

Got myself a shiny pawniard in friend safari last night.... I've been adding people like crazy so i wasn't even looking for shniies just seeing what pokes were in which safari and it popped up. Had my aegislash on me with false swipe and took about 2 premier balls and got him. This now marks my second shiny with the first being charmander through MM method. I want to try the fishing chain today need to look up more info on it though!

Does pokeradar work in friend safari?

When you're fish chaining, does it have to be the same Pokémon over and over?

Wondering if fish chaining works if staying still while surfing? Been doing that to see if any success but may just be unlucky.

Okay, thank you. I thought they had to be the same Pokémon. I was trying for a shiny Clawitzer and got really annoyed that my clawitzer streak was ruined by a Relicanth.

Yeah you shouldn't move otherwise it just gets harder.
Thanks, I wasn't moving around, just sitting on Lapras, been doing this for ages, hoping a shiny pops up soon as my reaction time fishing is struggling :p think I have 40+ chain so far.

Would a fainted suction cup/cute charm(to get female hidden ability pokemon easier) stack with a synchro pokemon? Would be better if you were RE'ing braixen trying to make sure it was female and modest or with keeping a high fishing chain and affect the nature

Also got my first shiny patch last night on a skiddo, within the first 5 chains, my highest chains were around 25, but eeeeevery time I got a high chain on pancham a doduo broke it

This fishing method definitely looks promising. While I only did one chain yesterday (broke after 98 throws), I'm certain I'll get my second XY shiny this way. Malamar really helped until I decided to go for the Good Rod instead since I couldn't run away from those Qwilfish.

Yeah, it works when surfing. That's how I got the four shinies I have. Just now trying to fish while standing on land, and having the worst luck ever. I must have a chain of hundreds already (haven't counted), and not a single shiny yet. I might have actually accidentally broken the chain though, but still. Gotta keep trying!

Edit: And just as I said that, shiny Poliwag appeared. Phew!
