So recently I set my sights on getting a shiny team and I looked up the best ways for it in current gen. I am familar with methusda (or however you spell it) method and already have a japanese ditto for it however I read about DexNav Chaining and I was wondering if anyone knew which way was POSSIBLY faster. I know it's really all up to random chance but I couldn't find any odds for it.

DexNav chaining is faster than the Masuda method.

*Masuda method + Shiny Charm: 0.1% chance of hatching a shiny (less than 1%; imagine how much lower it is without the shiny charm...).
*DexNav chaining + Shiny Charm: 2.9% chance, assuming a max chain of 40 (with a max chain of 40, it's normally a 0.9% chance without the shiny charm).

Plus, you have a better chance of getting lucky encountering a shiny in the wild than with breeding. I encountered both a shiny Wingull and a shiny Lotad in less than an hour while I shiny hunted about two weeks ago (this was without the shiny charm, btw). So yeah, less time consuming this way.

Good luck with your quest for a shiny team!

Ive heard that dexnav chaining is kinda like how the friend safari had an increased chance. I believe its a set rate, it doesnt increase yhe longer the chain gets. I have a shiny charm, and my dexnav chain reached 400 at one point and still no shiny. i mustve had bad luck, regardless of who is correct.

Last I checked, the chance isn't set, it increases like the poke radar did.
And using DexNav I found a shiny Eevee, Snorunt, and Gible!
