Poke Radar sucks!!!

#1jEr3mYPosted 11/11/2013 6:41:39 AM
Why do I suck at using it.... I seriously cannot get a chain of more than 2-3....

Any tips on actually getting this thing to work???

They patches DON'T shake differently.. they're all the same!!!

That's your problem.

There are 3 types of patches:

The type that hardly shakes that has no pokemon.
The type that shakes a little bit that has a certain number of species.
The type that shakes a lot that has a different species from the former.

The pokéradar doesn't suck, you suck at using it.

I use this a good reference for using the Radar. Hasn't netted me any shinies yet [mostly because I've been busy trying to hatch for one I can't get in grass], but it has helped me improve my chains.

ITP: not being able to pass a chain of 3 = automatically unlucky

I'm sorry, but if you really can't get passed a chain that is as little as 3, then it's obviously your fault, not the radar's.

pretty sure you're wrong. when you start chaining you have to pay attention to the shake of the grass before you run into a pokemon. If it's the pokemon you are looking for, remember the shake and look for that shake in the future. So let's say you're hunting for Farfetch'd. The first patch of grass you run into is the slow crappy shake, but it's a Farfetch'd. Now you need to look for the slow crappy shaking grass to continue the chain, not the vigorously shaking grass.
