SRing for a shiny is trying your chance in that 1/8192 shiny encounter rate to hit that lucky 1. It might take a few minutes to even months, from 5 SRs to thousands. My friend got his on his 70+ try. You have to have iron patience if you wish to use this method without cheating. I have tried SRing for a shiny starter once before but I have yet to get my shiny Totodile. It really saps ones' patience, but f you really want it, persevere! If you fail, try and try again. Never Give Up! (Y)

Yes, all shiny's have a 1/8192 chance. Whether it be Eevee from Bill, Suicune, Ho-Oh, Snorlax, Lugia, Articuno, etc. It takes patience and lot's of it, getting a shiny is luck and nothing but luck. As I said, there's no easy way to get a shiny just a lot of patience and frustration. That's why I don't do it.

Have you tried RNGing? It'll help you out with timing and whatnot to get your shiny. I personally have never tried it but others have and it seems to work.

Here is a link to the thread on this site

Here's an RNG guide, however it's for generation V. But if you're gonna RNG at all, I highly recommend gen V over III. Gen III is the hardest to RNG in, plus you're clearly using FRLG to SR for that Snorlax, and RNG isn't possible in FRLG from what I understand. But yeah, if you choose to pursue RNGing, please use the thread I linked you to if you have questions about it. You'd get much better help asking there than in here again.

Also going to merge this with the Q&A thread.

Just a quick googling led me to these results from smogon. As far as I can tell, only certain pokemon can be RNGed and luckily, snorlax is one of them. Gotta say though, use with caution cause you will probably get VERY annoyed trying it (if you're anything like me lol). Just try to read up on it before you try anything.

actually unless they are locked like Reshiram and Zekrom, all Pokemon can be RNG'd. While you cannot RNG for shiny factor, you can still RNG Reshiram and Zekrom for certain natures and IVs.

You can RNG any Pokémon. Snorlax is one of the few that are stationary encounters.

Hey there everyone, I'm here with some quick questions regarding the Great Debate: What Game Do I Choose? (Because I know you've never answered that question before.) Anyway, I've played everything up to B&W, omitting Sinnoh because it was released at a time in which I couldn't afford any new games (or systems, for that matter). I played the heck out of my GBA games and more recently played through SoulSilver and Black, and now I'm looking to buy a new game. But I'm torn between buying Black 2, which I've been told is even better than its predecessor, or buying a copy of LeafGreen on eBay, for playthrough purposes (I've got FireRed, but I've gotten way, WAY too attatched to my Charizard, haha).

So what should I do ... buy LeafGreen off of eBay? Or get myself a shiny new copy of Black 2 and join the party?

Buy Black 2! As much as I loved Gen III, I didn't really like FR/LG. Black 2 is amazing. I've maxed out the clock on mine, so that must say something.

I'd recommend buying Black 2. Leaf Green is almost a copy of Fire Red but with other pokemons only I think. Black 2 is a better choice IMO.

I'm going to agree with the two above me and recommend you get Black 2 as well.

It has loads of features, many Pokemon you can catch (including a few Legendaries) and given you have Black, you can use the Memory Link feature by linking up Black 2 with your original Black, and it will trigger cutscenes and features in Black 2 that otherwise can't be seen without it, along with unlocking all of N's Pokemon for you to catch. It also has Move Tutors, which teach various handy moves to your Pokemon.

I've played the game myself and it's my favorite so far so you know it's a great game.

No there isn't. Or I don't know if a new emulator has been created in the last few days. VBA is the best emulator IMO. Any problems with it?

No just a humble question. Just like in the supermarket, I like to shop around for the best product.

Hello all.

I've recently purchased a 3DS and will be attending a business trip with considerable downtime.

I'd like to try a Pokemon game, but have never played one before.

I picked up a used copy of Pokemon pearl and played maybe 2-3 hours of it and seem to be enjoying it.

What would be a good newer game to try? I'm considering purchasing either Black or White version 2. I don't want to be limited to older game mechanics which is why I'd like to play a newer game.

What would be a good initial entry to Pokemon for someone that has NO prior knowledge of the game, any of the Pokemon, etc.

Thanks!

-Travis

Try Black or White. Then you play Black 2 / White 2 afterwards. The game is more modern, has better 3D graphics, cool new Pokemon, etc.

Feel free to contact me if you need any help!

Tbh, any game is great to start with. But if you do want a more modern one I agree with the above poster, black/white then to black2/white2 as b2/w2 is more of a sequel. But I highly recommend the pokemon series and I'm happy you are interested in it!

Since you bought a Nintendo 3DS, your possibilities are (almost) endless. You can play games anywhere from Pokemon FireRed to Pokemon White 2.

In fact, the new sequel to the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, PMD: Gates of Infinity, would be great for you to get more of an idea of how Pokemon works, all while enjoying great 3D graphics.

If you are fairly nostalgic, the Generation III games: FireRed, LeafGreen, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are playable via the Dual Slot.

If you have a very significant amount of time, I would recommend purchasing a Generation III game to complement your Pearl, as well as Black 2 or White 2.

Then again, any Pokemon game is amazing.

There's no GBA slot on the 3DS unfortunately, so his gaming choices are only going to be gen IV and V, and VI in October of course.

Anyway, like it's been said, starting with Black and White and moving to Black 2 or White 2 would be good, though I know a lot of people that didn't enjoy BW as much as BW2 after its release. If you're not one to care about the plot of a game, then I think you'd be fine skipping to Black/White 2, but if you do care about plot continuity, play BW first then BW2.

Also, if ever you decide to return to Sinnoh, the region in Pearl, after you play gen V games...I recommend picking up Platinum. Diamond and Pearl run horrendously slow and are vastly inferior to Platinum in the eyes of most Pokemon fans.

What are the games that come out with the old B&W Game Boys?

And are there any B&W Game Boy emulators out there, I want to play some.

BW and GameBoy games are not compatible. Game Boy Advance games are somewhat compatible with BW and BW2 though, as you can transfer Pokemon from GBA games to 4th Gen games and then onward to 5th gen. BW is not available for playing on a GB emulator. There may be a hack of it, however I wouldn't know. If you want to find one, you should look through ROM Hacking. But I don't think there's one out.

You can find GameBoy and DS emulators though to play their respective games. Just Google them.

edit: I might have misunderstood. If you meant black and white GameBoys, you'll have to Google an emulator. I know I've seen people using them, though I'm not sure of the name. Usually people would type that out instead of saying BW especially when there are games with that acronym, so just keep that in mind for next time so people can know what you're talking about lol. I'm still not totally sure what you're asking to tell you the truth. :x

That'd be Red, Green (in Japan), Blue, and Yellow. If you count the Gameboy Color, you also have Gold, Silver, and Crystal.

I know we can't share ROMs and what not, but I can list emulators here right? The two better ones would be Visual Boy Advance and No$GBA.
