So Ive recently stumbled upon Soft Resetting and the whole Shiny Mudkips topic. And I went head first into this thinking it would be easy... ;~;

506540864068 SR's later... here I am.

So I just wanted to get your guy's five cents on how to do this properly or anything you might know about it. What I do know is that you start a new save and get to the part of the story where the Birch is being attacked by a Zigzagoon. Save in front of the bag and continuely SR until you opne the bag and choose a starter, then battling and seeing if its a shiny.

What I dont know or would like to ask you guys is...

Whats this buisness with the number "3" in the Pokemon ID?
Can you tell if its shiny by looking at the sprite or do you have to go into battle?
Average amount of resets before starting a new save?
Doe timing matter?

And by the way, I am using a EMERALD game, and as far as I'm aware, nothing is wrong with it.

Thanks before hand for any advice. :D
Is it spelled shiney?... ;~;
