I have a question. You know how you said the RNG in Emerald is broken, depending on the play time? Well, I was wondering if it's worth soft resetting at the beginning of the game for a shiny Mudkip. I decided to try soft resetting for the first time, and I got about 71 SRs before your post (granted, 71 isn't much at all). I'm not sure if I should keep going if I'm going to get the same sets of non-shiny Mudkips, bahaha.
