Make sure your PokeRadar is fully charged (You have taken the necessary number of steps). Next, stand in a patch of grass (the larger, the better). Next, use your PokeRadar. Most of the time some grass should start moving. Go to that patch of grass and you'll go into battle. Sometimes no grass will shake. If this happens, take the necessary number of steps to recharge your PokeRadar and try again.

Hope this helps!

Well first of all it does have to be charged. I believe you have to take 50 steps to charge it. Next go to a patch of grass/flowers. Make sure you have your Roller Skates off! If you have them on, you can't use the Poke Radar (to take of your Roller Skates use the D-pad over the joystick/circle-pad). Also, if you use the joystick/circle-pad your chain breaks. Your chain also breaks if you don't encounter the same Pokemon over and over again, and your chain sometimes randomly breaks. Hope you get a shiny Pokemon!
