NOTICE to all that are new to the forums!

This thread is NOT for asking about avatars, sigs, Trainer Cards, or how to make friends! Please go to the Newbie section for that:

http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=8

That is all.

This thread is for discussing shiny Pokemon in R/S/E: Any questions you have about them that aren’t answered in the FAQ, plus what shinies you own or want to own.

I’m going to let you all continue to discuss shiny Pokemon you’re trying to get, but please, for the love of God don’t spam. Unfortunately, if I see too many more spam posts of this nature:

“Hatched 5 Charmander Eggs, no shiny yet.”

“10 more Eggs, still waiting for my shiny Charmander.”

etc etc, I will have to change the rules to discussion on shiny Pokemon owned ONLY. Please be considerate of my sanity. :) Updates every day of how many times you’ve soft-reset or how many Eggs you’ve hatched just isn’t fun for me. One post per shiny wanted per person, please.

Don’t post about all the shinies you’ve gotten through cheating. No one cares.

And without further ado:

SHINY POKEMON FAQ

The main site’s SHINY PAGE (http://www.serebii.net/games/shiny.shtml)

1. Q: Shiny Pokemon? What are those?
A: Shiny Pokemon first appeared in the Gold and Silver games for the Gameboy Color. Basically, they are alternately colored Pokemon (for example, shiny Charizard is black instead of orange).

2. Q: Wow! Are shiny Pokemon more powerful?
A: Unfortunately, no. The ONLY difference between shinies and regular Pokemon is the color. They’re pretty much just for bragging rights.

3: Q: How can I find a shiny Pokemon?
A: Every Pokemon that you see in the wild, hatch from an Egg, get from an event (such as your starter, Beldum, etc) has the same chance of being shiny: 1/8,192. These are pretty high odds, so you need to be very lucky to come across one. There’s no place that they’re more common, and no surefire way to find one. You just need luck.

4: Q: But I’ve seen over 10,000 Pokemon in my game and haven’t found a shiny yet! That can’t be right!
A: 1/8,192 is a probability. That doesn’t mean that after 8,192 Pokemon, you will automatically find a shiny.
A good example of this is when you roll dice. You have a 1/6 chance of getting any particular number when you roll, such as the number 2. That doesn’t mean that you will roll a 2 in six rolls, or that your second roll will be a 2, etc.
The same goes for shiny Pokemon. You may find a shiny on your first try, or within a hundred tries, or maybe not until 10,000 tries.
To delve in a bit deeper, picture that whenever you encounter a Pokemon, a random number between 1 and 8,192 is generated. Let’s say that the number 500 is the “shiny number.” If 500 happens to be the random number that’s generated, the Pokemon will be shiny. If the number is anything else, it will be a normal Pokemon. Nice odds, aren’t they?

5: Q: If I breed a shiny Pokemon, will the baby from the Egg be shiny as well?
A: Unlike in G/S/C, where you had a higher chance of hatching shiny offspring when the parents were shiny, this is NOT true for any of the 3rd generation games. Every Pokemon has the same odds of being shiny, no matter what.

6: Q: What is this “soft resetting” thing I’ve been hearing about?
A: Soft resetting is when you press Start + Select + A + B to reset your gameboy (just like turning the system off and on). It’s helpful when trying to find a shiny of a Pokemon you can save in front of, such as your starter at the beginning, legendaries like the Regis and Rayquaza, etc. Save, soft-reset, see if the Pokemon is shiny, if not turn off your game and try again. Just like finding any shiny, this depends completely on luck, but if you’re patient you should eventually get your shiny. Keep in mind that this could take hours or days with luck, and months and months without.

7: Q: What does a shiny _____ look like?
A: The Pokedex on the main site shows sprites of every Pokemon:

http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/

Just look up the one you want.

8: Q: How do I know if I have a shiny Pokemon?
A: Besides the change in color, a shiny Pokemon will sparkle when it comes into battle. There are also a couple changes on its summary page, which you can see on the main site’s shiny page (link above).

9. Q: When will I know if I’ve gotten a shiny starter?
A: When you’re choosing your starter, the game will show you a picture of each Pokemon. This picture will NOT show you whether that Pokemon is shiny or not. You will have to choose it and check its summary, or use it in battle, to find out if it’s shiny or not.

10. Q: Can I save before hatching my Egg, and reset until I have a shiny?
A: No. Unfortunately, everything about the Egg is set when you receive it, so you'll end up with the same Pokemon every time if you use this method. You can, however, save before you take the Egg from the Daycare man, hatch it, and reset until you have a shiny.

11. Q: If my shiny Pokemon evolves, will it stay shiny?
A: Yes. Shininess isn't something that changes.

12. Q: Do shiny Ditto transform into shiny versions of the opponent's Pokemon?
A: Yes.

If any more questions are asked multiple times, I’ll add them to the FAQ.

I have read many threads asking about shiny shadow pokemon and so I decided to give coronis my idea via PM, he said I could post the thread and he would sticky it.... I Don't have much information at the moment but I have PMed people who have snagged shinies Questions and I will update with their answers if the deside to answer....

this information was collected from loads of posters in the shiny snag threads and members who have snagged shinies:


General
Shiny Pokemon, just like in the Gameboy games are very rare and some are even pretty, the chances to find one is 1 in 8192, that dosent mean after 8191 battles the next pokemon will be shiny, because every battle has a 1 in 8192 chance of being a shiny pokemon.
Your shinies may look pretty in the GBA games but when you put them onto colosseum or XD they will look different:

shiny Pokemon that are completely different colours then the 'normal' ones are noticable, like Dragonite is dark green instead of yellow, very noticable! Unlike Smeargle, who looks like the normal smeargle should look in the GBA games




Identifying a Shadow shiny
Firstly when they are sent out two orange orbs will fly around them, not stars, as a shadow the shiny may be visable when you place it into the PC
The pokemon may a different colour, my flygon was manky yellow instead of green and green instead of blue, not a pretty sight.



Shadow Lugia
The Shadow Lugia, very cool in colour but loads of people have been wondering what will it look like if it is shiny. Well I have come up with the conclusion that the Shadow Lugia will look normal in appearance until it is purified, then you will see the differenct in colour


Smeargle
Smeargle is one of the biggest problems for shinies in colosseum and XD.
In colosseum no matter what the smeargle with have a red tail, like the shiny form in the Game boy advance games, this is due to the fact that colosseum uses the same 'models' that the stadium games use. Smeargle has a green tail in colosseum and XD, if it is shiny it is a dark manky green tail

Unconfirmed information
this is for Information I have discovered but Do not know if it is true
the orbs on shiny shadows only appear the first time you send them out

Latest Update:
Picture of Shiny Smeargle (http://*******.com/view/?pic=dpjvr5)
credit to ******* for hosting and credit to my friend for letting me take a picture of his Smeargle



FAQ:

Q: are shadow pokemon available in XD?
A: if not then why make this thread?

Special thanks:
ssw for the information about the PC
my freind for letting me use his smeargle as a 'model'
Coronis for allowing me to post this thread and for stickying it
My mum for buying the camera which I used
Me for being so helpful

My dream is to have a shiny Sneasel, but that's predictable. I had over 1,000 Sneasel eggs on Pokemon Box and after hatching them all none were shiny. However I doubt i'll ever get one as I cannot release a Sneasel. Even the Modest and Quiet natured ones. So yes, i'll always have over 1,000 Sneasels on Pokemon Box.

Don't look at me like that.

All I have from the 3rd generation is a shiny Zigzagoon. I might try for a shiny Banette.

Good luck Parukia in your hatching spree!

~Shining-Metagross~
2nd August 2006, 8:38 PM
Here we go again. =P

I have:
-Shiny Metagross(Emerald, 5 Restarts)
-Shiny Magnetric(Ruby, about 4-5 Hours in)
-Shiny Peliper(Got from Trade)
-Shiny Tangela(Got from Trade)

I am Soft Restarting for:
-Shiny Mudkip (Sapphire)
-Shiny Dratini/Abra (Fr(Buy 3 Dratini and 2 abra from Game Corner))
-Shiny Mewtwo(Leaf Green)
-Shiny Latias(Emerald, Eon Ticket)

Hatching for:
-Shiny Beldum(My friend is bugging me for one)

I'm not playing the games as much, so I do about 5-10 restarts for each game each time. It worked for my Shiny Metagross, so I am trying it for the others.

When you first use your started pokemon against the Ziggy in Emerald, if your starter is shiny, it'll come out shiny right, or do you have to check on it's status? Cause I have SRed about 200 today and yesterday and still no Torchic

So why were the old threads deleted?

In Em, I'll be hatching for a shiny Treecko and SRing for a shinY Ray and Beldum after I beat the E4. Those aren't my only targets on Em, just the one I'm determined to get. On Ruby, I'm SRing for Latios(having no Eon Ticket sucks, especially when I used to have one :() and in FR, I'm going to SR for Moltres and Mewtwo after I beat the E4... but I'll be SRing for a secret pokemon really soon ;)

It's values are set when you watch the television broadcast abou them, after you beat the E4. I've tested it, and I've confirmed it to be true. The first time I saw Latios, I caught it, and it was Sassy, then I soft reset(I had saved right before I watched the TV), and the second time I caught it, Latios was Rash. No worries for me, except for the monumental amount of time it takes just to do one soft reset.

Hey Chorusco. R u hatching for a shiny bagon? Good luck to yas anyways. Bagon looks sweet as a shiny form. Once into a Salamence though, it will look even sweeter!

Right now I'm hatching/Sring/encountering the shinies that I am looking for. I think I have around 40 shinies. Right now I am looking for a shiny Charmander, Abra, and Yanma. I may start to look for a Bulbasaur.
I plan to evolve my charmander into a charmeleon when I get it.
My Abra into a Alakazam.
And the rest I will keep the same.
I have been searching for a while and I am starting to get bored.

why is shiney charmander so hard......2 boxes full already.... so i decided to take a break and soft reset for mewtwo...I SHALL PREVAIL!!!!! one day....

I got sick and tired of trying to hatch a shiny Charmander. It's takes way too long to hatch and I just decided to trade over most of my Pokemon (after over 160 hrs of play on FR) to Sapphire and start over to get a shiny Charmander. Two days and no such luck.

My recommendation: Trade over and restart your game for a shiny starter, if you can. Otherwise, have patience and good luck. :)

My Shinies: Nidoking, Flygon, Porygon, Alakazam
Seeking: Charmander for Charizard, any shiny that looks better than the default.

why is shiney charmander so hard......2 boxes full already.... so i decided to take a break and soft reset for mewtwo...I SHALL PREVAIL!!!!! one day....

I got sick and tired of trying to hatch a shiny Charmander. It's takes way too long to hatch and I just decided to trade over most of my Pokemon (after over 160 hrs of play on FR) to Sapphire and start over to get a shiny Charmander. Two days and no such luck.

My recommendation: Trade over and restart your game for a shiny starter, if you can. Otherwise, have patience and good luck. :)

My Shinies: Nidoking, Flygon, Porygon, Alakazam
Seeking: Charmander for Charizard, any shiny that looks better than the default.

You know... the shiny I want, that I have NEVER seen anyone ask for, is Houndoom. The problem is how to get one. The ONLY reliable way I can think of to get a shiny Houndour is to hatch for one - since the only place they appear in the wild is a rare occurence in the Emerald Safari extension. :(

Go Houndooooooooom! ;229;

I never looked at my pokemon's natures,ev's and iv's. So I decided to do it, my first pokemon was gonna be Starmie, and the third egg i hatched was a shiney.:D
But the nature is adamant, so can't use it:(

Dragonking
5th August 2006, 6:13 AM
What masterball trick? I know of the trick in colosseum, unless he means cloning.

kirby I say your best bet is to just travel in the grass in the wild. If your lucky one will show. SRing and Hatching are for specific pokemon and seem to take longer for me.

amulekbird
5th August 2006, 3:43 PM
OK, for all of you wondering what is the fastest way to catch a pokemon, here's the long and short of it.

First, decide whether you just want ANY shiny or whether you want a SPECIFIC shiny.

Now, for those in the "I want any shiny" category, there is no faster way to get your own shiny than simply wandering in the wild...pick a grassy spot, a cave, water, fishing, whatever. My advice is not to look. EV train a lot of pokemon, level them up to lv 100 out in the wild, whatever to keep your mind off of your shiny hunt. You'll get one eventually. That's how I got both of mine.

For those in the "I want THAT pokemon!!" group, your choices are:

1. Hunt in the wild (only good for pokemon that have a high chance of being seen in the wild, i.e. zubat, oddish, etc.). If you want to know the chance of a poke being found in any specific area, check out the maps on Psypokes. If the chance is less than 10%, you're probably better off with the other alternatives. Another advantage of this method is that you will probably get other shinies as well as you hunt for yours.

2. Soft Reset for it. This is only for pokemon that you can save in front of. NEVER SOFT RESET WHILE BREEDING! That's a total waste of time. If you don't know how to Soft Reset, just hit Start+Select+A+B (all at the same time). Soft reseting will reset all the DVs of the pokemon you saved in front of giving you a chance to get a shiny one.

3. Breed for it. This is BY FAR the slowest way to get a shiny. Just because some people have hatched a shiny after "20 eggs" doesn't mean you will. I've hatched well over 3000 eggs hunting for a shiny Ralts (since last Septembe). No shiny yet. However, if you're going to breed for a shiny, do it a favor and REALLY breed for it. Pick a great moveset for it, breed for great IVs, do all you can to make your effort worth it.

4. Now, if it doesn't matter that the pokemon is YOURS, the fastest way to get a shiny is to trade someone who has one...with cloning, it shouldn't be hard to convince them to give you one. I'm not going mention the fastest way because it is not allowed and doesn't feed your "shiny hunger" at all.

Encyclopedia
6th August 2006, 2:17 AM
Ok, this is sort of on topic, sort of not. I noticed a lot of people hate cheating devices here. Now here's my thing about cheating to get shinies and cheating in general.

1) If you use a GS or AR to get a shiny in Pokemon, fine, just don't brag about it. Any moron with thirty extra bucks can do the exact same thing.
2) I used my GBC Gameshark on Silver only AFTER I beat the game and had most of the Pokemon in the regions.
3) For anybody on Xbox Live or other online communities, don't cheat against other people. That's just wrong.
----
Also, I'm SRing for a shiny MALE Charmander. Just regarding this "race to the shiny charmander," I just don't like the orange of the female sign is just too loud for me with a shiny. I don't care about anything else, but for shinies, I want to concentrate on the shininess. If anyone understood that, thanks, if not, it was poorly explained by me.
----
I know I'm not a moderator, but kirby and anyone else out there, don't spam and say
Just finished a good long hour of shiny hunting. That's just BS. Don't waste people's time who are trying to find out something about shinies. Save it for when you've actually caught one or if you're responding to someone.

It's ok. :D

I think you're better off searching for Roselia unless there's a Surskit outbreak, or if i'm mistaken... Or perhaps you can breed.

I caught my first shiny yesterday! It was a level 38 male Golbat with a sassy nature on Emerald. I was training my Walrein for the Elite Four when I found him and caught him with a Master Ball. After 2 years of playing Pokemon I bumped into him just after entering the dark part of Victory Road.

Also, still no luck with my shiny Mudkip..

Resetting For Ho-oh on emerald. You would think I would have gotten it after a year of SRing. Not so much luck on Emerald I guess. History I got Shiny Natu at 20 hours and nothing for the next 430 recorded hours not included SRing hours.

i got a question

do you guyz think that i should just hjatch magikarp eggs instead of goin around fishing for it

is hatching a shiny easier or is finding one easier

Gon Freecss
6th August 2006, 9:21 PM
I think finding it would be a bit easier because hatching takes a couple minutes to get the steps for the eggs even if its magikarp steps.

I agree with you about the star part but can you get a normal light blue Gligar.

Didn't you say in an earlier post that they WERE cheated? Like the eevee and such were caught at levels 2 and 3 and in strange routes... If that's the case I'm curious as to why you're keeping them.

Congrats on the shiny Torchic you caught earlier btw

But I still don't get why you keep them if they are cheated, from Emerald or Leaf Green or any game for that matter. Just curious :)

No luck on shiny Staryu yet, I really should have a shiny Starmie since it IS my username lol.

Nice one! So now its a Hitmonchan as I can see in ur sig. Looks very cool! You must be pretty lucky in shiny hunting cos you've got (or did have) quite a few shiny pokemon. Gratz anyways!

I am still looking for any shinies and still havent seen any yet. Reckon this game file is unlucky...

Demonic: wow. I really cant believe that darn shiny treecko STILL hasnt come out yet! Your game must hate you or something? How many resets u reckon u've done approximately now?
