    I've yet to try Chain Fishing/Poke Radar chaining as I'm currently preoccupied with breeding up my team, but with my luck with random shinies, I think I'll have some pretty good luck with chaining

    Thanks so much Vasden2!

    Some exciting information I came accross last night for chaining using the pokeradar.

    Apologies if this has been discussed already.

    Apparently as you chain, the music of the pokeradar can change at times to an upbeat tone. When this upbeat tone plays you have a higher likelihood of encountering a shiny. When the upbeat music plays, keep resetting your radar until a shiny patch appears, If the music ends and is replaced by the usual pokeradar music your opportunity is over, and you should resume chaining normally. The upbeat music phenomenon is very easy to encounter, I got it three times in one hour. I usually chain while listening to music, podcasts etc, so this music cue thang totally went over my head until I read an article on it. I havent caught a shiny this way yet, but I only found out about it last night. If anyone is chaining right now, pump up your volume and see if you get lucky

    Ps: Finally after 591 eggs I hatched a shiny scyther using Masuda method , looked so similar to normal scyther that I initially dismissed it when it hatched Thank god I double checked it!

    Nice! I've found that if you fish in a cornered off area you don't need suction cups at all. Meaning you can synchronize to your hearts content Unfortunately you can't use both suction cups and synchronize this gen... :/

    Yeah...i tried this shortly after the post, my synch worked and my chain was working very well so i thought it was working like a charm...unfortunately right after that it took 3 casts to get anything to bite, so iknew it was not to be.

    Quick Update - 2nd shiny Poliwag had the correct nature AND ability and I finally have a very close proximity to Precious back!! I don't think it has any 31's but the EV guy said it was excellent stats, and finished up the ev training late last night.

    Cannot be more thrilled!!

    Next will either be a breeding project to rebuild a Skarmory just like Soaron was, or another fishing chain for a Gyarados...not sure which.

    So Caden's first Kalos Shiny came tonight, Shiny Teddiursa, which my last shiny was Teddiursa, both from Shadow's Safari.

    So um, Toys4Life, your son has a very generous safari zone haha.

    Kay so, I've tried the masuda method three times now, very lucky the first time with a shiny after 50 eggs, second time was hard graft with a shiny after 591, but this time, I may have to admit defeat, after a week, and 960 eggs, I still dont have a shiny vulpix. It really is a pain after spending so much effort and time to throw in the towel, but if I have to see another vulpix hatch from an egg I may just break Any words of wisdom or advice for somone on the verge of quitting?

    Don't ask me I usually give up after 100. On a positive note I finally got my yellow Barboach last night. Add that to a shiny Carvanha, Corphish, Goldeen, Luvdisc & couple Red Lobsters over the past two weeks. The Claunchers are the only ones I synched, but I did get lucky with a Jolly Carvanha. Still looking for that deep blue Horsea. I'm not that good at fishing, but I'm determined. Sooner or later I'm bound to catch one just by luck.
