I recently got the Shiny Charm in my X Version, and I'm thinking about chaining (Both Consecutive Fishing, and PokeRadar). I'm just curious: Are the odds increased due to the Shiny Charm, or are they the same odds?

Example: Would I still have to do a chain of 40 using the PokeRadar in order to get the highest odds (1 in 200)?


Have a valid link as a source.

We don't know this.
Still can't hurt to ask, right?
Right. Then it will get 40 upvotes and a bunch of half-assed answers.

The odds are definitely increased because the shiny charm boosts the chance of finding a shiny and chaining boosts a chance of finding a shiny too, so you will get a HUGE (not that huge) of a chance of finding a shiny.
Hope this helps!
