Who else wants the [Shiny] Radar back?

#1All-icePosted 8/13/2013 9:13:00 AM
Back in Diamond and Pearl the Poke Radar was introduced and made Shinies so much easier to obtain. I don't know why Game Freak took it away :(

I had over 6 boxes of Shinies, but if I took the duplicates away, I think I'd still have 4 boxes.

Anyone else miss the Poke Radar?

Does anyone know why it was taken away?

Did anyone else have success with it like me?

Also what was you highest chain?

Mine was 183 on a Skurkit(I think I spelled that wrong)

that's silly everyone knows that your chance maxes at ~40 chain, after that you should never go into the grass unless it's shining

I know, but the patch I started out was always perfectly 4 away, so I just kept going into them.

I ended up with like 12 Shiny Skurkits

Something about this logic seems... lacking. If you're at a chain of 40 it's the same as a chain of 2417, but if you fail to enter, doesn't it reset to normal (i.e. Chain of 0.)

Yeah, I'm a crossplayer. Deal with it.

you just keep walking around until you can use the radar again, does not reset the chain

To be more Specific, every 50 steps the Poke Radar is reusable

Still working on the regional dex in Platinum.
I don't need anything from Gen 3 or SoulSilver for that, do I?

You haven't gotten the Poke Radar yet?

If I remember correctly, after you beat the Elite the Professor calls you over to his lab and gives you it.

would be odd if you needed.. it's the regional dex after all... still, in DP seeing feebas was a pain

(it's gen 3 but is available in the mist covered underground lake, and 1 rebattleable trainer outside the 8th gym town has 1)

but I don't have plat, so ...
