    Well, title says all. What is the lowest chain you've had while encountering a shiny Pokemon using the Pokeradar?

    Me personally, I had an encounter with a Shiny Staravia in the Trophy Garden during a chain of only 9.

    I'm not sure if a 0 chain (no Pokemon) is possible. I assume it is, but it'd be the same chance of finding a random shiny in the wild.
  2. 1 ^_^ it was a shiny bidoof >.> i immediately killed it

    Umm, I should clarify this maybe: this is what number on your chain you had when you got a shiny, and what was the lowest number on your chain you had when you encountered a shiny using the Pokeradar at any given time.
    Also, this only applies to D/P/P.

    I got my first shiny Snorunt on a chain of just 2. I think i read somewhere that you cannot get a shiny on chain 0 by pokeradar. However if you do then it is by the normal 1/8192 chance and not the pokeradar. It said there was something in the pokeradar programming that makes it so chain 0 cannot get a shiny patch so the lowest from the pokeradar is chain 1. I hope i made sense with trying to explain this...

    Yeah, that makes sense. I didn't know if that was possible or not though.

    I've chained many times, so I've encountered a shiny from non-sparkled patch to higher numbers.

    It took me encountering over 10 Starly to find a shiny one

    I tried a chain of Pokemon Platinum and Pearl 3 years back and my chain was around 10.

    In Black, I tried doing it to Audino 40 times, and no shiny.

    I think it was 5 or 6. But I was just looking for a Tyrogue on Route 208 when I saw the sparkly grass and I encountered the wild Shiny Meditite. It was well worth it though.

    Found a shiny Machop on the 13th chain on Pearl. I was EV training a Rhyperior in Atk and found it.

    I got a machop at 1 after two weeks of no luck. It was refreshing.

    I haven't done a ton of chaining, but I found a shiny Roselia once at number 4, in the trophy garden. Other then that I've not found any shinies while chaining.

    How did you chain Audino?

    By the way, I have never enountered a shiny by chaining. My highest chain is... 32? I think?
