Okay, last night I was retrying to radar-chain Sneasel because I've spent a whole 4 days without getting a single shiny of that devious weasel. It's always the Snovers and Gravelers breaking my chain.

After a few failures last night because of Snovers, I retried about the seventh time and the chain peaked at 7. On the 8th re-scan after a few radar resets, There wasn't any sparkly grass yet so I walked to the grass farthest to me - It's a little around the edge of the grass area - since Smogon stated that the farthest grass to you is the one that has the highest chance of continuing the chain. The grass I walked to was not sparkling. The encounter showed up....

And it was a Shiny Sneasel. Is this guy full-odds or is he boosted by Radar-chains?

Hard to say. You did have a chain which boosts odds, but at the same time you also didn’t have a forced shiny patch. It’s really hard to say… congrats though!
forgot to say it. congrats!
Thanks, both of you! (filler)
Congrats! Kuroyupii For The Shiny Sneasel.

It is always possible for non-flashing patches to contain a Shiny Pokémon as well due to the normal, completely random chance of a Pokémon being Shiny.

so the the shiny sneasel that you get is a full odds shiny, as the source say

here is the Source

i believe that is full odds, but i still cannot get what it means. but i believe it is full odds:)
yay now i understand what its mean! (90%)
It means that the Pokemon in the shaking patch of grass was not made shiny by the PokeRadar, it was a completely random event.
@GmaxWaluigi thanks for making it clear! now i could edit it:D
Thanks!  You really did help

Heh, I guess I'm one lucky hunter
and im not a lucky hunter, thats why im a nuzlocker rather than shiny hunter. and again, congrats on the shiny!
