Well, I'm not sure of what you're asking...I'll just go through the 3 ways of increasing Shiny Pokemon chance:

  • Masuda Method: This method involves breed two Pokémon created in games of different countries. Instead of the standard 1/8192 in the games, it turns into 1/1639 (Generation IV) or 1/1366 (Generation V) probability of being Shiny upon hatching the egg produced.
  • PokeRadar: After chaining, meeting same Pokemon repeatedly using the PokeRadar, you have an improved chance of encountering a Pokemon using this formula:
    , where n is the chain number, up to 40.
  • The Shiny Charm: The chance of meeting Shiny Pokémon in the wild is changed to 1/2730. The chance of an egg producing a Shiny Pokémon via the Masuda method is changed to 1/1024.

where do you get the poke radar in pokemon black?
Nowhere. The PokeRadar was only in Generation IV games.

Do you mean Masuda method? If so, that can only be performed by breeding.

Also, using Masuda method still doesn't guarantee a Shiny Pokemon hatching from the Egg. The chance is still a low 1/1366, so you'll still have to be patient.
