    I think his friend has a cheating device and he said that he hates them.. because they ruin your game, and he is has alot of ev trained pokemon etc. and wouldn't want to lose all of them to a cheating device

    Anyway, the shinies that he caught me are gone now, because of something dodgy so that is that.. so lets just get over it

    it wouldn't surprise me if my cousins games are broken to be honest, he never took care of them when he was younger, he used to drop them, sit on them, step on them, i used to find them lying on the floor with the labels all scratched

    Like any family member i am defending my cousin because i know he wouldn't cheat, and im sure everyone else would do the same thing if they knew their cousin was innocent.. so please don't accuse him of cheating

    im going to make a new shiny banner today
    i should also evolve half of my shinies too.. instead of having 2 shiny zigzagoons, i should get a linoone

    hopefully someone will catch a shiny today
    good luck everyone

    Exactly! Now you've got it!

    Sort of. FR/LG also use the game on time, but they also seed the RNG with some various values from your game--possibly total gameplay time, number of steps taken, or something like this. If you just stay put and SR on FR/LG, you'll get the same problem, but you can "shuffle" the population you're drawing from by walking around a bit and re-saving your game every 20 or so resets.

    Thanks for the info, and best of luck with Kyogre.
    Thanks, and good luck with the Tropius and the EV shinies!

    There's no such thing as a "virus" in these sorts of games. (Well actually, some guy discovered an arbitrary code exploit in RS's saves, and used it to launch Pong, but that's unrelated.) You're more likely looking at either a broken game or he's using a cheat device behind your back.

    I've been hunting for shiny Tangela in my FireRed.

    no he does not own cheating devices either.. so that had nothing to do with it..
    One of those shinies was an Arceus. So I'd love to know how he managed to get that without owning an AR, seeing as, you know, it's impossible to get an Arceus without an AR.

    They distributed Arceus in Australia in July 2007
    it was the pokemon connection tour
    my cousin went to that event, thats where he said he got the items to get arceus, and many other event pokemon
    he stumbled upon it when he went to the dentist with his friends
    so thats why i believe my Arceus isn't hacked..

    i think all my cousins games are broken, they are scratched and beaten up to the maximum, i think that might explain some weird glitch/ virus in the game or something, but i know for a fact my cousin does not own a cheating device

    im up to 2483 SR's for Rayquaza, so hopefully it will shine.. today maybe?

    No, No they didn't.

    Arceus hasn't been released anywhere in the world yet, at all.

    There is only one way you can get arceus at the moment, and thats by using an action replay to hack the event item needed, so your cousin is lying, no two ways about it i'm afraid.

    he does not have a cheating device!!
    why do people keep saying that he lies to my face!
    i don't think you can buy cheating devices in Australia..
    if you can i don't know where

    oh and to people who have been to events, how exactly do they actually give the pokemon out?

    up to 2595 SR's for Rayquaza

    Maybe because you're saying that he got a legit arceus from an event that happened in austrailia, when there hasn't been an event for arceus anywhere in the world yet, not even in japan.

    Hell nintendo hasn't even officially released arceus yet, the only reason we know of it is from someone hacking into the coding and finding it.

    No-one is trying to slight you or anything like that, but you're insisting that a shiny pokemon you have is legit when there is no way at all it can be legit right now.

    And btw, you can buy action replay devices pretty much from any games shop, i have one from a while ago (don't work anymore though)

    And lately, for any D/P events they've been downloading the pokemon straight to your game via wondercard.

    the original argument wasnt even about an arceus
    i don't even mention the arceus anymore, because people always have something to say about it..

    it wasnt one of the 12 shinies that my cousin found in one week

    this whole thing is annoying me now, because people are accusing my cousin of being some game hacker, when he isn't

    my cousin said that there was some computer thing that you put in what pokemon and items you wanted thats how he got them, and you traded pokemon that you didn't want in return for event pokemon with event items

    i have decided to put my torchic and abra hunts on hold for now to focus on Rayquaza
    2600 resets.. but i guess some people have done double that and no shiny yet.. so
    good luck everyone..

    Lol, what? Arceus hasn't even been officially released in Japan yet (unless I missed something), so no way in hell did they distribute it in a 2007 Australian event. We're not even supposed to know that it exists yet.

    well.. pretty much everyone knows, so..

    i did not mention this 12 shinies thing months ago to start an argument

    why don't we just move on from this considering an arceus is not a 3rd gen pokemon!

    and no my cousin is not lieing so im not going to accept something that is not true! why doesn't everyone stop accusing him and discuss things other than cheating devices


    I will SR more for Rayquaza a bit later, but right now, why doesn't everyone just forget about the arceus thing, ok?
    and the 12 shinies thing because thats really old, and they are all gone, so i don't see why it matters

    @Ceecee-typhlosion, i agree with you we don't need this sort of argument going on in this thread.

    However that being said, the easiest way to stop these from starting is for you to stop mentioning your cousins shinies(legit or not) it just needs to stop, because not everyone is going to believe you, and thats something you have to deal with.

    That way these types of arguments won't keep popping up, and in turn i'd suggest everyone else stop talking about her cousins shinies, and talk about your own, or other members shinies, not people who are not members, that way there will not be mini flames being shot at each other calling peoples relatives hackers & cheats.

    Guys, don't start off-topic arguements here. Take it to PM. And to all the other people, please don't minimod either. PM a moderator of this section if it's getting out of control.

    Also, don't keep updating on your SR status every hundred times or something. This thread isn't really meant to be a postcount++ thread, so don't update unless there's been a significant amount of time since your last SR-count (like a week or so), you're choosing a new target, or you actually got a shiny. If this keeps up I'm going to have to start handing out infractions and maybe remake this thread with stricter rules (which I might do anyway).

    this is me on sppf most of the time. so don't send me small questions. send them to kreis :)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Hey all, congrats to new shinies.

    Not much from my end, SRing for shiny Charmander, Regirock, and Kabuto in my games. I'm also breeding for my secret shiny target as well. I've hatched 25 or so more eggs since my last post, its not a priority hunt currently.

    Going to EV train a few of my shinies today as well, probably my Treecko or Regice/Groudon. Will post some news if I get a new shiny, see ya in a week or so.

    You know what? I am gonna remake this. 1076 pages of (mainly) spammy posts is enough.

    EDIT: Andddd I made it 1077, lol. New thread: http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=346177
