The lack of this feature is killing me:
"Repel's effect wore off! Use another?"

This was one of the best things to happen to Pokemon. I hope it'll be in X / Y.
I hate everything.

HG came out first.

It can't be that much of a deal breaker.

I don't use repels. I want my shiny Pokemon.

Edit: I know OP isn't implying that HG didn't come out first. I was just saying.

I honestly feel like repels take away from the game. As frustrating as it is to be swarmed by Zubat, or Woobat now, it's what I've come to expect. And I still hold to the silly dream of finding a legit shiny.
"Whoa! Heads up, detecting high levels of space chickens."
"No! Space chickens are a surgeon's worst nightmare."

I use repels only in dppt... And I use them for shiny hunting. But that's only in dppt. hgss doesn't need them. Neither do 5th gen games.

Trust me, encountering something EVERY 5 STEPS is annoying, at least when you're trying to get somewhere. And I know BW2 came out later, I'm just implying I really like that little feature, considering HG also seems to have slower menu navigation.

I don't know how to RNG hunt in gen 4. Or chain hunt, whatever it is.

If I had more patience to go back and read up on chaining, maybe.

In SoulSilver and White 2, throughout the story, I never used any Repels.
However, whenever I'm trying to get somewhere, I constantly use them. Sure, I kinda like shinies, but what are the chances that a shiny will be worth anything?
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Chaining. It's the easiest legit way to get shinies, with max odds being roughly 1/205 chance. It does take a lot of patience though and is incredibly irritating to break a high chain, but if you want a specific shiny and it appears in the grass areas of dppt, it's the way to go. RNG is cheap. A program tells you when to encounter a pokemon to get what you're looking for. I see it as a means of cheating since an outside device is used to aid in finding what you want. Hence why I stick to chaining.

Ain't nobody got time for that cheat device.

I'll try chaining.
