>The data shows that chain length DOES NOT matter -- it's a misnomer to call this "chaining" at all. >The data shows that search level DOES NOT matter, either. >The only thing that matters is using DexNav search in the first place, because it increases your shiny chance in general (the same way the Friend Safari does in XY).
>>24592506 Last I heard, a shiny is typically found at around 60-80 chains and breaking the chain makes it take forever, probably fairly close to the base rate. So I would guess Shiny Charm stacks, it has a Friend-Safari shiny rate AND Chaining raises it further.
Chaining does not matter. The odds of finding a shiny remain constant. The only benefit to chaining is that it makes finding and encountering the same Pokemon easier. I still chain sometimes even though it doesn't raise shiny odds just so I don't have to keep trying the search function over and over again.
>>24592334 I'm pretty sure chaining increases the chance of high potential i was chaining Eevees, and i could have a bunch of three or two star eevees in a row, but if the chain was broken, the next few would all be zero
Dexnav does have some level of skill and patience, but chain fishing is broken as fuck. It needs to get nerfed in gen 7. Considering they brought Pokeradar back from gen 4, and Dexnav is similar to Pokeradar, I'm sure they'll have something like it in the future. Good for shiny hunting, good for ev training, just overall a good feature.
>>24593148 Desxnav is patience and is so easy. All you need to do is battle again and again. With Pokeradar its harder, you have to REALLY chain choosing the correct grass. It is much more satisfactory. Dexnav is the best tool to train EV's and eggmoves, but sucks as shiny hunt tool.
>>24592248 like said before in the thread, DEXNAV gives an overall increased chance to find a shiny, the search level and chain doesn't matter.
as for what the actual percentage chance is, I've seen different things. Most are saying that DEXNAV chances are the same as the Friend Safari at 1/512, and the shiny charm cannot increase the chance so it's fixed at that.
