How to Go Shiny Hunting Using Chaining & Grand Underground in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl

If you are on a conquest for shinies in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you might be well aware that they are various methods to do so. Here, we will talk only about the Chaining and Grand Underground method.

For the chaining method, you need to first complete the Pokedex and defeat the Elite Four. This will give you access to the Poke Radar, which is quite a handy device. It allows you to detect Pokemon in the wild easily. This can be very crucial for chaining, which requires you to catch multiple Pokemon of the same species. You just turn on your repel, and start looking for a Pokemon of the same species using the Poke Radar. Make a 40 long chain, and your odds improve to an impressive 1/99.

The second method is by heading to the Grand Underground. Each area in Grand Underground has its spawns decided when you enter it, so you can re-enter as many times to try for a shiny. However, there is an even better way. You will see a counter on the top left when you enter the Grand Underground.

Now, you need to find Diglett to Dugtrio, and interacting with them will get you 1 or 3 points for the counter. Collect up to 40, and your chances of getting a Shiny will massively improve.
