a few quick questions regarding shiny chaining

#1Neo Link1987Posted 12/22/2013 5:18:32 PM
So long as I don't leave the grass and I continue to encounter the same pokemon, the chain is continuing right? Now, once I hit 40 chain, do I just start spamming the pokeradar and hope for shiny grass to show up because I managed to reach a 40 chain but couldn't find shiny grass, so I continued to encounter grass patches until my chain broke. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, once you hit 40 stop going into non-shiny patches and wait for the shine.

FALSE! A shiny patch won't automatically show up :( you need to keep going with the chain until you find a shiny poke, OR a shiny patch, you can have chains of 70 and not find one < happened to me :(

Don't listen to this guy unless you want to get a chain of 70 and not find a shiny like he did. Just get your chain to 40, then keep resetting the radar until you get the shiny patch.

I know that 40 was the cap, I just wasn't sure if I had to continue encountering or just keep using the radar. I'm not gonna keep counting after 40, that's just pointless. Thanks for the help though
