Darkdragon, I'll try to help a bit if I can, you did allow me to see the new spore videos after all :P

First, buy a lot of super repels, I would say, maybe 995, 999 just to be safe.. (ok thats too extreme, just, get a lot of them.) Because if you DO get to 40, it can sometimes still take a long time refreshing the radar to get a shiny (watch your step.), It is possible, to get more than one shiny in a chain. Most I've got is 3, but I tried for a fourth just.. because... Until it got annoying boring.

You're doing the pattern right, dunno why you can't get past 14.. I tend to be able to get to 40 now a lot more.. Hmm.. I would say, try bigger grass patch yet? Or I might say, Determination is key, don't give up, it only takes time.. Sometimes a LOT*.  Yeah, they can appear early in the chain.. VERY early.

Don't forget, if you DO get the chain to 40, you CAN get

Psyduck family, Poliwag family, and Wooper family can have damp, get one of them if you plan on catching an exploder, but don't have enough master balls to waste.

False swipe is the best move for catching.. Anything.. Except ghosts and super-hard pokémon like steel and rock, but still a lot safer than getting a critical hit and wasting a shiny (I hope this never happens to anyone, ever.)
~~~ Use Serebii.net and maybe you can find something you can get that can use both False Swipe and Odor Sleuth/Foresight :o ~~~

I got my Gastrodon before I knew the 40-chain secrets and the distance to walk secrets, but the shiny tile appeared at a chain of 3 gastrodons, I was only trying to level up. Oh, and when I was hunting for my ponyta for.. days, it happened at 33 of the chain, yeah, I'm real lucky with the number 3.... weird.

My shiny progress:  ;D
Pokéradar rocks, Got myself 3 Shiny Shinx (siblings get the spares as gifts.), 2 Shiny Electrike (spare to trade with a sibling, whoever gets a spare shiny first.), 1 Shiny Buneary (proud of this one, it appeared on like, 10-11 of the chain 8)),
* and FINALLY got that Murkrow. It took well over (atleast) 120 Super Repels. and like 2 or 3 hours! It just would not appear after I got the chain to 40! ARGH!..!!..!!!!1!!!1!1Eleven!!11!!!!! :P  Named it "Cello".. yeah.


Oh, and several "LOL"s dotted here and there, would look too sloppy if I put 'em up there.

There isn't any easy way to get shiny water Fish pokémon right? (So far I've got one shiny fish, my Sharpedo.)

Never give up, never surrender! oh.. 4:22 AM here.. Sorry for making so many words in one white-grey-ish box. Hope something was useful or inspiring or what-bloody-ever.

hehe, thanks a lot. I was doing everything right, just unlucky... then yesterday a Shiny Male Floatzel appeared on a chain of 22, I caught it with a Luxury ball and then on the 23rd chain another one showed up (this time a female) and I caught it with a heal ball, it was fun, I got a couple of Shiny Floatzels xD

Right after that I took my raichu and went to hunt for Shiny Shinx cause I love the color and got one on a chain of 2!

That was about it, after 4 days I finally got 3 shinies in one day xD

Pfft, I had a shiny Roserade ages ago.

Of course, it's one of my only two shinies, both of which popped up randomly since I'm so bad at chaining.
Not a winner anymore.

Finally picked this up ready to build a team. Milotic and Heracross from R/S, but I'm going old skool with Charizard, Gengar and Umbreon, the final slot is undecided but I might just go with Lanturn as I already have 2 at Lv 100.

Is it just me or did anyone else not know you can clean the gym badges?

Yeah, if you tap them with the stylus you can clean them and make them shine xD

Each one plays a note so you can make music out of it. Clean a badge maybe half way for a flat note and in between. A waste of time really.

I cleaned them all up to 4 sparkling stars in 5 minutes (they were all dark gray or whatever).

Ugh, I got up to 27 in a chain, whichwas 10 more than my previous record, then lost it. It's incredibly irritating.

What exactly does a shiney sparkle look like with the pokeradar? And what happens if you use the pokeradar in long grass?
No way dude, you're trolling me.

You can't use in long grass, and shiny patch is yellow sparkles/stars.

I know this isn't family friendly and is disgusting, but....

I just breed my female Gloom, then looked at it's face afterwards and laughed. Go look at the Gloom sprite, seriously. Besides the obvious, the faintly disgusted face is a giveaway.
