Getting the Pokéradar
Using the Pokéradar
How to access
You can access your Pokéradar by hovering over the Home tab, located at the top of every page, provided you have bought it previously at the Item Shop.
How it works
Multiple forms are affected by this. For example, if you are hunting Shellos (West) and you hatch a Shellos (East), it will count as a different Pokémon and the chain will reset.
Differences between Normal and Premium Users
The Pokéradar presents some differences depending on if you are a normal or premium user.
- The battery is quite unstable for this radar; the Pokéradar will run out of charge once you hatch a Shiny or if the chain is reset, and you will need to purchase new batteries with 50,000 Pokédollars , 50 nuggets or 50 electric gems if you wish to use it again. The chain will reset to 0 once a shiny is hatched.
- The battery has unlimited power, which means that the chain will not reset when a Shiny hatches and the battery does not have to be recharged.
The shiny chance is calculated using the following formula:
((14747 - 40 * E) / (2621440 * (41 - E))) * 2.5 * P * C
E = Number of eggs you've hatched so far, caps at 40.
P = 2 for premium members, 1 for regular members.
C = 1.1 if you own the Shiny Charm, 1 otherwise.
The maximum shiny chance is reached after hatching 40 eggs consecutively of the same species.
|Membership||Max. Shiny Chance||with Shiny Charm|
You can still hatch a Shiny without using a Pokéradar, but you will need a lot of luck because the chance is very low; however, this chance is slightly increased if you are a Premium member.
The Pokéradar doesn't guarantee that you will hatch a Shiny, although, you probably have a lot of bad luck if you don't hatch a Shiny after a long chain.
Changing Pokéradar Color
You can change the color of your Pokéradar when you click on the artwork. You have the choice between red, blue, purple, and green.
