    Just for all you doubters, I made a video showing that the trick works. Good luck pointing out any flaws in the video (as far as I know, none) :P
    Click here to see it
    By the way, I already have an identical Wurmple, so I turned it off without saving. Sorry to disappoint you :P

    EDIT: seeker85, yes, you need your SID. This can be used to find the exact amount of time you need to wait for a shiny.
    Shiny Dialga: The egg's PID (and therefore shinyness) is actually generated when the egg is created, not when you talk to the man. Therefore, you'll need to somehow make the egg be created at the exact time you need (not an easy task). Even then, eggs appear to use a different method to generate their PIDs; I don't think this has been cracked yet.

    Do you think that the PRNG will work with Eggs, too? Such as, taking an Egg from the man at the precise time you should? Since everything in the Egg is predetermined, shouldn't this work?

    Pretty cool, but I find that it sort of is like the Shiny code for GSSP, because with the glitch, you always get the same nature same IV's shiny Pokémon, and with the GSSP code, it's always the same Nature and IV's.

    It's also the same as the shiny glitch Shiny Charizard Master got after unsucessfully cloning his shiny Gyarados, wich dissapeared.

    Even if you don't know your shiny numbers, the shinies would still have the same natures.
    The shinies are generated for random frames, depending on your ID and Secret ID.

    Anyways, I got the trick to work while fishing aswell:

    Magikarp 2x, Wailmer 2x, Carvanha

    Plus a lot of new random shinies, too much to list =p
    Apparently my signature's picture was too big after not hearing anything about it for nearly 2 years! : D
    Will be updated at some point.

    Lol, I can't get that trick to work. And believe me, I've been trying.

    But that's not important, because... after 5113 encounters a shiny Tangela appeared today in Fire Red. ^-^

    A shiny green Tangela

    My battle with it

    It's Quirky natured, and has decent IV's I guess:
    HP: 16 - 19
    Att: 13 - 17
    Def: 16 - 19
    SpA: 23 - 27
    SpD: 25 - 29
    Speed: 3 - 7

    Now I have to decide what to hunt next in Fire Red.


    EDIT: Apparently I has luck today. A shiny Whismur just appeared in Ruby 2. Finally after over a year of hunting in various games, and 17,892 encounters. n_n

    Shiny Whismur appeared too!

    Wowwwwww

    Honestly, this trick is kind of cool...but the coolness is being offset by the abuse it's seen so far. I think I'd only use this to get a select few shinies that I like.

    I haven't hunted in a while, I've had a lot of school work...but I will pick up my hunting during the weekend. The school basketball season is over for me now, so I have a lot more time for leisure activities.

    Shiny Latios appeared after several months of SRing ^_^. After literally jumping up and down, and running around shouting yes, I calmed down and prepared to battle it.

    The battle was hard, 2 Pokemon in my team that had a weakness to Psychic-type attacks, Ludicolo's attacks weren't effective(I didn't want to use Ice Beam, as I may have fainted it), and the rest of my team weren't high enough in level.

    I ended up throwing a Master Ball at it, as I was down to Salsa(my Ludicolo), and Latios had 4 Dragon Dances up, so it would have killed him.

    Still no luck with Rayquaza, but I have been reading on the broken RNG code thing. Very interesting. I just haven't caught a shiny so I can't find out its Shiny PID and I don't know how to find our my ID or SID (No ARG or GS).

    Took 6,000 SRs, came 10 minutes after the next little beastie showed up.



    Only about 100 SRs into my Treecko hunt, this thing came. But, I was still kinda happy, encountering my second GBA Shiny, although this one was not captured either, although my first one (Numel) could have been. Too bad I hadn't known what shinies were back then. Anyways, today was a great day for hunting shinies.

    The ID is on your trainer card :P
    If you have D/P and Wi-fi, you can migrate a Pokémon from Emerald, and trade it to someone who can check its SID. You'd have to do that through PMs, though...

    Anyway, on-topic, I caught a shiny Ditto using the trick. It's fun watching it transform into shiny versions of the opponent :P

    I'm still soft resetting for a shiny Zapdos on both FR and LG. It feels likes it's been forever.

    My Ruby and Sapphire games are now effectively useless. There aren't any shiny Pokemon I want to go for on either game that I can't get more easily or through breeding in D/P.

    Jessara: If you did not use a cheat go get your Secret ID, you can use orchic's IVs to find its PID, which you can then find your Secret ID from.

    Vlieg: What do you mean by perfect? Like Hasty nature? 31s in what?

    I got Torchic with my shiny frame I heard of friends succeses with it but didn't think I could do it myself as hunting for shinies has failed for me in the last year or more but I got it Haven't gotten anymore since though, I can't work out the Sweet Scent time for my shiny frame, minusing 5.27 seems to be wrong

    Last night, I was trying to catch mewtwo on my firered version. It was eating my team alive. On the first soft reset, I faced mewtwo again and I noticed that it's tail was green and sparkles appeared. At first I was like huh??? Until I realized that It was a shiny. I was so happy, I instantly went for my masterball(which I was planning to save for a suicune. And now I'm happily bragging to everyone about my very first shiny pokemon.
