Congratulations to everyone on their new and wonderful shiny pokemon!
I have put my MM hunt for Snivy on pause and restarted my HG game so I can get a shiny johto starter. Hopefully I will get one under 5000 SRs. I was just wondering, will it work if I save in front of the machine where you get the pokemon or is it pre-determined whether you'll get a shiny or not when you enter the lab?
Best of luck to everyone on their hunts! ^_^
