Okay I'm starting, but I can't tell the difference between the grasses. They seem to all shake the same to me.


This has been my problem ever since I got this thing. I don't know how people can distinguish different types of "shaking".

I'm trying to chain haunter, but there are only two routes where it lives in grass, and the latter route doesnt have large enough grass patches to chain with.

So im on Route 14. and i have yet to run into Haunter when using a Pokeradar. All i get is goomys and skorupis.

Its totally fine, sir. I seem to do quite well for a stretch and then at the end of the sentence I say the wrong cranberry.

I think there's three types of grasses.

- Grasses that barely shake (these give you the "There don't seem to be any Pokemon here" message, breaking your chain instantly).
- Grasses that shake normally
- Grasses that shake extremely violently and are also louder than the other two grasses.

My best bet is to try to start a chain on the third type of grass. It's easy to see and, at least to me, I can tell the difference between those patches and the normal patches.

Okay I kept doing it into the most violent shaker until i found a haunter! Killed it, they shook again. If its not more than 4 steps away and not on the edge, i carefully recharge my radar and redo it.

So far so good, on a chain of about 7.
