    Default I want a shiny charmander for my fire red.

    I want a shiny for my fire red so i can get a black charizard.

    I know its very very very rare, but if i start a new game on firered whats the best stratagy for getting it?

    Should i pick charmander and if its not shiny start a new game and keep doing that or is there a better way?

    I know I could bread to get one but im going to start again some time, is it even possible to get a shiny charmander from oak?

    Yes you can get a shiny Charmander from Oak but you need to soft reset for it once youve seen it in battle.

    The only other option for getting one without using a cheat cartridge is to mass breed for one (made easier in Emerald).

    Yes you can get 1 from oak but your gonna have to keep soft resetting until he gives you a shiny charmander which could take forever.

    and how do you reset?

    if i were to start a new game, and save before getting charmander could i just pick it then reset it again and again or would i have to start a new game?

    My friend had found a shiny charmander and his mom asked him to take out the garbage and when he came back he found his little brother playing the game as a squirtle. He was maaaaad!

    Press A, B, Start and Select to soft reset. But before you do, save.

    All you have to do is save infront of the Pokeballs, then sort reset once you get a non-shiny Charmander. It's very easy, actually. The hard part is waiting to get the shiny...

    If youve spent a lot of time and effort catching all those pokemon then breed, but it might be just a little easier soft resetting so you dont have to keep walking round waiting for eggs to hatch.
