Random luck is great but earning your first shiny is a feeling like non-other. With more deterministic methods than ever, Trainers are getting into the hunt. We\u2019re teaching you how to Shiny Hunt using the Pok\u00e9 Radar in Pok\u00e9mon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Before you start, you\u2019ll need to become the champion, obtain Pok\u00e9 Radar, and get the Chain App from your first visit to Ramanas Park. Screenshot by Gamepur Select the Pok\u00e9mon you\u2019d like to hunt and check your Pok\u00e9dex to see where it spawns. This only works for Pok\u00e9mon that spawn in grass patches. Prepare your team with a Pok\u00e9mon that knows False Swipe to make sure Pok\u00e9mon never faint from your attacks. Plan for the weather, self-damaging moves, or anything that the wild Pok\u00e9mon can do to ruin your hunt. Turn off auto-save as it will ruin this method. Things that break your chain: Wild Pok\u00e9mon encountersLeaving a RouteTrainer battlesGetting on your bikeEncountering a different Pok\u00e9monEntering the Grand Underground When the Pok\u00e9 Radar starts, four patches of grass will shimmy and shake. Find the patch that is farthest from you; look for four squares away. Step into the patch and catch the Pok\u00e9mon. You have an 83% chance to continue your chain when entering a grass patch, four spaces away, and knocking the Pok\u00e9mon out. You have a 93% chance to continue your chain if you catch it. Repeat Balls will be your best friend here but throw a Quick Ball on the first turn no matter what you\u2019re catching. If your chain breaks, turn off the game and turn it back on. This will make none of the Pok\u00e9 Balls you\u2019ve used go to waste and save you money. Sleep is the best status condition to inflict, as it makes catching easier. Paralysis is a close second, but default to sleep when you can. See Black Friday Gaming Deals on Amazon Super Repels, which prevents wild Pok\u00e9mon encounters, is the best option because Max Repels only provides 50 more steps for an extra 200 Pok\u00e9 Dollars. When you reach a chain of 40 or more, your shiny odds become 1 in 99. If you don\u2019t like a patch of grass at any point in your hunt, run 50 steps, without entering a patch, to recharge the Pok\u00e9 Radar and use it again. The Counter App can help you keep track. This patch reset method is all you need to do once you hit your 40 chains. If you see a patch of grass that is shaking wildly, ignore it, that\u2019s a patch that has a high chance for Pok\u00e9mon with Hidden Abilities. Reset grass patches until you find a shaking patch of grass that sparkles and catch your shiny.
