Re: Poké Radar Shiny Pokémon Hunting. The GOOD way. AKA my way.
If not for damn Starly I would have gotten a pretty decent chain here. It is incorrect to say only bidoof appears (going back to original top few posts of this thread). Also, with the odds the way they are for seeing shinies without attempting this, I still found and caught a shiny zubat on my diamond in the first tunnel you enter in the game. Wow for luck, right? That was when I was only passing through and battling the trainers. Golbat keeps trying to evolve (damn you nintendo) but will not I know until I get the other pokedex.
Also encountered a shiny another time on my friend's platinum but the safari balls have always been weak when it comes to catching anything, except maybe eggsecute or tauros since r/b/y.
