That high? Guess I've been pretty lucky. I've caught a shiny numel, pelipper, and a swablu(modest personality) in the past few days. I've been ev training my pokemon in same areas. I've been wanting a shiny absol but I haven't been lucky on that one yet. :(

You should know that starters and legendaries have a far higher chance of being shiney. I believe it's around 1 in 356.

In RuSa its random. Therefore no formula has been calculated thus far.

For starters legnedarys, according to my latest sorces its 1/256. But yours may be more accurate.

the reason why shiny is easier to get for those legendaries/starters it's because the fact that it's harder to get a female AND a good personality makes up for all the decrease in difficulty for shiny...

He went to some other country and he saw a '100% English' version on it a while ago and he bought it. I remember him talking about it in the FRLG forums.

I tried Kyogre 1000 times and no shiny

I'm pretty sure in rusa it's random so you could take hours and never get a shiny legendary.

It has to be based on some sort of chance. Like if you wanted to catch a Surskit (without the TV outbreak event), it would be extremely rare to run into one and you would need to know the chances of finding one.

On average, to get a shiny of a "once only" Pokemon such as starters, Kyogre/Groudon or Metagross, it takes 83 hours of non stop trying on average. So perhaps that's a better way to look at it compare to percentages. ^_^;

As far as I've figured out from hacking around in the SRAM/RAM....for a Pokemon to be shiny in R/S/LG/FR, the game draws 2 random numbers (words [or 1 dword...not sure], each can be 0 to 65,535 err...the low byte of the first word is used for the gender I think) and then if the first word equals your secret Trainer ID and the second word equals your Trainer ID then, the Pokemon is shiny. So if I'm right...the chances of a shiny Pokemon are 1 in 4,294,967,296 O.O and a player that catches for example, a shiny male Rattata, can never catch a shiny female Rattata. Unless there's something I didn't figure out >.< that kind of number seems a little too large though...

Anyone out there know more about the byte structure of a Pokemon, I know most the stuff related (like changing the gene, effort points, contest stats,experience,item held,markings, Pokemon ID, Pokemon Name etc...), but currently there's a few words in it that I don't quite know the most about (like the gender part and it's relation to shiny Pokemon and changing the grouping of the encrypted dwords)? Any info is greatly appreciated ^-^

The rareness of a shiny is really low ( you'd have to be lucky) but getting a female starter is hard too so if u get one of them then you should be proud in my opinion.

Simon

Can we just all agree that getting shinys are hard and getting shiny starters are even harder?...etc?

Gardy

I suppose I mean the chances of a starter seems just like the encountar of one so I guess I agree with you. ^_^

I tried Kyogre 1000 times and no shiny
The chance is 1 out of 1,000,000.

Note: if you keep restarting your game the chances are re rolled (restarting not saving and trning of GBA)

Note: Its just like rolling a dice you can keep rolling it but never land on a six,

no, you guys are all wrong..stop guessing.
i really forgot, but i tried atleast.
65** somewhere around that. its the number in your game, when two numbers match you get a shiny.

Jirachi3

it happens when your secret ID and the pokemon's secret ID match.

Gardy
June 4th, 2004, 02:13 PM
Wow u people r genius (compliment) I never thought it waz that way! So it is sorta like the highest id is 99999 (maybe to many #) so the chance is 1 outa 9999? *confused*

That sounds about right as supposed to what Jirachi3 said

Gardy

Wow I guess people r born lucky $ (I feel smart for once) J/k but then again I heard 2 #'s r drawn or something lik that and if the pokemon's matches your number u drew then it's shiny. But which one is correct???
