has anyone tried with the old rod? or everyone using good and super?

old rods work, but why would you want a shiny luvdisc


magikarp

everyone has a shiny gyara, so that's even worse haha


Not really. Shiny Magikarp is technically much more rare than Shiny Gyarados. Plus, it's a golden fish. Instant bragging rights.

Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before, but does catching a shiny reset the chain? I just found a shiny Almomola but I'm not sure at what chain. I'm curious to go find out since Im sure I broke my record of 56, but if catching the shiny keeps the chain going still, I'm hoping this will give me even more chances. I'll try to get a vid of this uploaded for proof. And thanks to tc for mentioning this method.


Unsure, but I'm 79 chains after my Shiny Shellder and I'm getting nothing.

Protip: To speed up this process a bit, I would recommend unregistering everything except your rod of choice. This also prevents possible mistakes of pressing the D-pad before Y, causing you to move, and thus breaking your chain.

slightly off topic, but I find it weird that after over 200 fish, I have yet to see a barboach, and I've only seen one gorebyss (it was actually the pokemon that started my chain, though, none inbetween)

just how rare are these two?

edit: huntail, not barboach

Good luck
