    Catching a shiny breaks the chain. Catching any other pokemon that you caught does not break the chain

    What about catching the pokemon? Does your chain break after that?

    In my party I have a Gallade that knows Hypnosis, False Swipe, Dream Eater and Mean Look btw X3

    I've been trying to chain Evee, but had no luck thanks to the Trophy Garden and its trickiness.

    That sound complicated, but the shiny looks worth it. Thanks!

    Once you hit 22 your odds of finding a shiny double from the normal 1in 8192. They slowly climb until the mid 30's then the odds increase greatly. When a chain reaching 40 the odds of finding a shiny are twice that of a chain of 39.

    You know the one time I succesfully chained a shiny I only raised the chain to 24 . . . but I guess I was only really going for 1 shiny.

    Why have you posted that in every single blog article you can find?

    Peter Piper picked a pear of pickles eating his curds and ways. Along came Sally, who picked up sea shells, but didn't know what to do with them. Do you know what to do with them?

    I like these blogs. I wanna try chaining again, but I've only ever been able to chain one pokemon successfully.

    Ooo! Epic! I was just thinking about going back into chaining ( I've never actually tried it) and then I find this!

    Its' great that you are blogging about chaining pokemon again. I might revisit Platinum for this one. Little shiny aron are so cute. I hate evolving them into Aggron. I like to keep
    them as shiny pets

    Just wanted to add a little something here:

    I've successfully chained snovers in Route 216 on Diamond - the grass patch near the rest-house (I'm pretty sure that's where delibirds swarm too)

    The snover in that area are not at as high levels as the ones you're talking about, Dennis - they don't have wood hammer at that point hehe - and I even managed to catch some of mine in Dive Balls (get those from the Newspaper guy in Solaceon).

    My strategy, I believe, was to change the DS to it's brightest setting, and change the DS clock to a time in the afternoon, for better visibility.

    The area is a little misty, and for me it was easier to recognize the regular-shaking grass than the bright-shaking grass; but the 'shiny patch' was very distinctive. I am certain that if you are chaining in that area on D/P at least, you will recognize the patch when you see it.

    However... I *still* can't successfully chain in either sandstorm or rainy conditions - the former I've tried but the latter I haven't yet.

    ~Tani, who is still trying to get the national dex in Plat so she can try Plat chaining for herself~

    I really have to commend your knack for hunting shinies. Makes me jealous.
