PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

You see, I wanted to try to get a Shiny Mareep through using the Poke Radar within Valley Windworks, and I was curious... Would the ability Static boost the odds for Mareep while using the Poke Radar, or does the ability only affect normal wild encounters?

I'm asking specifically for Pearl, if I need to address so.

It probably would but I don't have evidence
It'd make sense if it would work, but I haven't found anything that specifies that Static works with the Poke Radar.
The PokeRadar is one of the most under researched features in Pokemon, especially prior to BDSP
https://www.smogon.com/ingame/guides/chaining says that static and magnet pull make some Pokemon easier to chain, although it doesn't explicitly say that those abilities still work after the chain already started.
