Doing fine with a false swipe Aegislash and Venusaur to spore them...
...I now realize that I was really lucky to catch that shiny Lugia when he only had 4 PPs left
And I also realize that my luck got away; almost 7300 resets on Mesprit and it's still not shiny. but I went too far to stop now...

EDIT: Also the lowest PP count is not Palkia's but Lugia/Ho-Oh's.

It didn't took long (1 evening and 1 morning at most, + the Shiny Charm), got her on December 29th 2014.
Yeah, kinda breaks my no shiny hunting rule but Cresselia is the exception because Crescent Isle is a pain to get as Mirage Spot of the day.

Hey I can do this too!
Proof that I got Lugia, it took me less than 100 resets so yeah.
(Yeah I know its name is unoriginal and that it holds a Potion for reasons I myself don't know.)


And I totally forgot to tell you I finally managed to get Mesprit after 7, 773 SR's.
(Actually not giving a fuck about it being NU and still using it in strat matches.)


Now I moved up on Giratina, currently around 1500 SR's with no results. Then I'll take a revenge over Kyurem who died on B2... Speaking of Giratina, anyone has a nickname to suggest? Because I'm really out of ideas...
And by the way, I don't have the shiny charm, doing it with the 1/4096 ratio.

Hey would you please shut up?
I am the guy who tried getting a shiny with DexNav Chaining... I had like 5 chains, each at least with 300 encounters, one had even 600 encounters. Still no luck. I don't even want to start with SR.

And I consider shinies caught using the chain fishing trick worthless. It is way too easy.
Well, DexNav chaining isn't any better, but at least you need to show more endurance.

Dexnav hunting is relatively easy in fact, it's not as painful as the Pokeradar.
Anyways, if you keep your determination, there's no chance you can't find your shiny, just keep goin'!

You should have a look at the GTS, since HA Serperior was released yesterday in Japan there's bound to be countless Contrary Snivy now.

Amazing. Every Serperior will now spam Leaf Storm (Wait, that's the point of having a DW Serperior.)
Anyways, I'd be glad to use it myself as a bulky sweeper.

Good thing I have a talonflame.

I got a contrary serperior, thinking of slapping the thing a choice scarf and spam leaf storm

I wouldn't do that if I was you grid, that's just asking for :
_Mega Charizard X / Mega Altaria / Dragonite to come in and setup Dragon Dance in your face
_Heatran to come in and straight up wall you, proceeds to 2HKO with Lava Plume
_(Mega) Scizor to come in and setup Swords Dance for free
_Ferrothorn to come in and make your added speed backfire on you with Gyro Ball, setup hazards, or paralyze you
_pretty much anything with a resistance to Grass and at least decent Sp. Def. to come in and setup

Plus Serperior already has a nice 113 Speed that let him outspeed the crowded 100-110 speed bracket.

I would rather make a set like this:
Serperior @ Life Orb
Ability : Contrary
Nature : Timid (+Spe, -Att)
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 6 SpD
Moves:
_Leaf Storm
_Dragon Pulse
_Knock Off / Substitute / Giga Drain
_Giga Drain / HP Fire / HP Ground / Leech Seed

Leaf Storm is self-explanatory, best move by far.

Dragon Pulse gives more than needed coverage.

Knock Off, even though it doesn't net the Sp.Att. boost, isn't there for damage but for utility value, it cripples incoming Scarvers and Eviolite Chansey (+6 Leaf Storm does 91.1% min to non-Eviolite Chansey).

Substitute pairs well with Giga Drain and Leech Seed, protects you from status.

Giga Drain has incredible synergy with Life Orb, since it's easy to get +4 with Leaf Storm, your opponent will be hard pressed to get rid of Serperior, especially if behind a Sub and constantly keeps healing himself.

HP Fire toasts Scizor and Ferrothorn, deals heavy damage to Skarmory, Magnezone, (Mega) Metagross and pretty much any Steel not named Heatran.

HP Ground if you really hate Heatran ruining your fun, has good synergy with Dragon Pulse, 2nd best hidden power overall for Serperior.

Leech Seed fucks up Chansey and Blissey really badly, synergize well with Substitute.

Alright I'm gonna be fast, I clonned most of my Shinies (Except Mesprit)
The first person to send me his/her 3DS FC will be granted one of those, just specify:
-Lugia, Sylveon, Sharpedo, or Celebi (Celebi isn't shiny btw.)

I prefer to specify again those Pokemons were clonned, however, they are still legit.
(This giveway is exclusive to that board )
Consider me as a cool guy, that's not everyday you'll get free shinies, even cloned ones

Aww too bad. I wanted a pentagon shiny mesprit :<
Its my fave of the three. The others, I already have them shiny.

I was joking, you know

I wont use a contrary serperior ever for the foreseeable future.
And I knew that life orb set, so I would probably had used that.

And lol, just faced my first contrary serperior. Good thing I paralyzed it, as a +2 leaf storm did quite a bit to my specially defensive Jirachi.

Also I really never come today against Zard X and Heatran.

Well, DexNav chaining isn't any better, but at least you need to show more endurance.


I was browsing through the internet and it seems that DexNav chaining doesn't gradually increase the shiny chance until it hits 1 in 200 like the Pokéradar, instead it seems that as soon as you begin a DexNav chain, the shiny chance is speculated to be a flat out 1 in 512 (like the Friend Safari in XY) and doesn't increase any further.

This would explain why I only got 1 shiny with the DexNav (despite the Shiny Charm), a shiny Skitty at a chain of 10.

So yeah chain length only matters if you want to increase your chance at finding a usable shiny.

Apparently, the odds of finding a shiny creature using DexNav is the same than in chain fishing, this one is said to be like 1/300 on the internet. Tough, 1/512 chance isn't to put away.
