Hey all,

I'm going to buy Pokemon Pearl and soft reset for the legends. Will somebody be able to help me? I've never Soft reseted for Legendary pokemon before. If you're willing to help, please drop me a vistor message. There is Regigigas still left to be caught on my Diamond but I'm having trouble with it, the Iv's are always the same aswell as the Nature. Is there something that I'm doing wrong?

That's odd... It's just something wrong then, because it shouldn't be like that.

Shiny Eeeeeveeee

If you're wondering what I've been doing all this time, please check out http://osu.ppy.sh/, but please don't let it eat all of your time, like it did me!

Now, I'm in for the long task of reading up on all of the posts I've missed. =.=;

Good luck to all, and it's great to see an Origin Giratina enter our hordes.
I'm glad to see you've finally decided to pop in. All those pages? Yeah. Good luck. There's no telling what you'll find.

I've heard about that game. I haven't tried it though.

Well shucks lol thanks I'm glad it's really helping.

How long does it take to get to 40? Depends on how careful you are, how patient you are, and how lucky you are. As with Pikachu I got to 40 in around 25,000 steps (I'm not gonna attempt to pin the exact steps down right now..), but some others have taken 60,000 steps. If you're chaining a rarer Pokemon I'd suggest being much more careful in what grasses you decide to go to.


Uh.... that is all. I feel like crap.

Congratulations and good luck everyone, and welcome back MM.

Well DDD, I am currently making my way through Platinum, so I can start SRing for a shiny Darkrai. I need to beat the League first, get the National Dex and release Cresselia.

Thank you all for the congrats guys, I'm totally happy with this shiny Giratina *hugs* I'm SRing for shiny Regigigas in Pearl as well, nothing yet though. I am also working on my third gen shiny targets, Latios mainly. I need Latios to complete the shiny Lati Twins, then I'll move on towards Regirock and finishing that shiny trio.

Congrats to new shinies everyone. Nice to see you again MM ^-^.

I've been resetting for Registeel for a little over a week on Emerald, so I'm getting bored. I've switched to Regice hoping that it might shine today.

Sometimes it can be very weird. I can't explain it. It's happened to me and a lot of other people who have chained for quite some time.

It happened to me twice on the same day on the "same" chain. It was with Krabby. I chained and should've had 40 but I looked at the PokeRadar app and it said I only had 31 or so, but I knew otherwise. So I chained til I thought I had 40 again, and checked the app again... It said I had 2. The music never faded and I never found anything but Krabby. Extremely weird.

I've tried chaining Smeargle before. On my first try I breezed to 39. By far the quickest I have ever chained a Pokemon before. But then the chain broke.
I've never been able to get back to a 40 chain with Smeargle. It's hard to chain. It just depends on how lucky you are.

I can't really decipher what happened to you without further details, except for the fact of what happened to me before with Krabby. Some things just can't be explained.

But another thing to look at is how sometimes chains break after you enter shiny grass. I suspect it's possible that the same kind of thing happened here. It just depends on how much grass is around you because that's another factor in getting the Radar to re-activate which is another reason why we do not enter grass patches at the edge.

If you notice in my video the first "perfect" grass I enter. After I exit that battle, only a single grass patch shakes. It could've been more, or it could've been none at all, breaking the chain.
I've also had only a single grass patch activate right in the middle of the field.


It all just boils down to luck. And in your case, unfortunately you were unlucky. But keep trying.

Congrats Storm!
But why would you go after 2 Dialga and 3 Giratina (Although Platinum & Origin Form Shinies are worth it)

Going after Regice a lot and will be doing the all day dual hunt on Sunday probably, and an all nighter the night BEFORE X-Mas Eve, and a late nighter on X-Mas Eve

EDIT: And a 2 shiny Charmanders? WTF?!
lol
And how did you get a shiny Latias?

Congrats again on Giratina S_D! Oh and Mateus on Uxie too! Welcome back MM as well. Hope you post more often :) Nothing new to report here. Snorlax refuses to shine still. I gotta remember to SR for Rotom tonight too.

Oh and to get Lati@s shiny you need the eon ticket to SR on southern island. That's how I got the pair, and pretty much anyone else with them shiny too.

Good luck everyone on their hunts!

And how did you get a shiny Latias?
I like to get shinies, and I like both Giratina and Dialga shiny forms enough to get more than one shiny. I wanted to get another shiny Charmander, because my first shiny one will stay a Charmander and I wanted a shiny Charizard.

I got shiny Latias by the Eon ticket and an E-Reader, from a friend on another forum(who doesn't play Pokemon anymore), so its thanks to him that I can SR for a legit shiny Latias/Latios.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well I managed to beat the Pokemon League yesterday night. Instead of SRing for shiny Darkrai right away, I decided to chain for a few targets. I'm working on a Swinub chain right now, my highest chain was 39 before it broke to a patch that was supposed to be "perfect". My chain is now around 18 or so, not used to chaining that much anymore, haven't done it in months, lol.

Congrats to new shinies everyone ^-^.

Gonna do some crazy soft resetting this weekend, with constant dual SRing, an all dayer on Sunday, and maybe another one over my break, and then an all nighter with either single or dual SRing maybe once or twice.

Bad news, guys.

The guys disassembling the program have verified that it's 100% impossible to soft reset for any of the Mystery Gift Pokémon (ie. you get them from the green man directly) as shinies. The games are rigged to never give out shinies from there, unless they're predetermined to be shiny, like the WCS Milotic. This means:
  • The only legitimate ways to own a shiny Darkrai or Shaymin are through either the Japanese Elite Four Glitch or through Platinum, where Oak's Letter and the Member Pass are being given out over wi-fi.
  • Most 4th-gen events, including Gamestp Deoxys, stuff from PBR, Festa, may not be shiny.

SRing a shiny Manaphy is possible, but is somewhat complicated. They also tried (and did so very aggressively) to prevent Manaphy from being shiny. Like the others, a shiny PV is thrown out if calculated, meaning it cannot be shiny under normal circumstances. However, if you trade it to another game, the set of PVs which yield shinies, as we know, changes, so the egg's PV might now yield a shiny. They tried to shut down this trick, as well, but they messed up. They tried to replace your shiny Manaphy with a new, non-shiny one right as it hatched, but they messed up and checked the OT of the Egg rather than the ID of the trainer who hatched it, so we can, indeed, get shiny Manaphy. Putting it all together, here's how it has to work:
  1. Take the Manaphy egg from the green man.
  2. Have a new, restartable D/P game handy.
  3. Trade the egg to this game. Save the game right away.
  4. Prehatch the egg, ensuring you don't save during the process. (Saving will waste precious steps, and you'll need all the steps you can get if you want to be able to perform lots of SRs.)
  5. If the Manaphy is not shiny, SR your game and trade the egg back to the first game. (IMPORTANT! Manaphy will NOT appear as shiny on the egg hatch animation. You must check its stats screen afterward.)
  6. Delete the savefile on your second game, begin a new adventure, and repeat the process as soon as possible.
  7. Warning: The use of external devices to discover the hidden ID of your new savefiles (and speed up the process, avoiding the lengthy hatching process), or to fix them to make sure the egg is a shiny will constitute cheating, and will exempt your Manaphy from qualifying as legitimate. Roll of the dice--remember that.

So now, onto my Eevee. I only caught one of them. My chain was at 11 when the shiny patch appeared. The chain broke at 22 on an ideal arrangement. I am most definitely evolving him to Espeon. I might go back for an Umbreon later.

Now then, I have two boxes of Chikoritas to ID and release. I'm sure I have a new female Incredibreeder amongst the last few. Remembering that I release all but the best few Chikos on the fly, each one corresponds to about 20 bred, so this is closer to 40 boxes worth in that regard.

When is the earliest you can trade the manaphy egg to the newer file. Like after the first Gym? Before?

Sandgem Town, I believe. Once you've caught your second Pokémon. You may want to catch two spare Pokémon so you can trade in both the egg and a Flame Bodyer.

If you have a third D/P game and are willing to play through Ranger five times, you can speed up this process by producing five Manaphy eggs. I believe it's necessary to do a factory reset on both Ranger and the D/P game receiving the Egg in order to make another one.

Hey all,

Well, I'm going to go Soft reset for a good IV'd/Shiny Raquaza in Emerald. Afterwards, I'm going to go hunt for some shinies.

Good luck to everyone with Soft Reseting/ Shiny hunting.

It all just boils down to luck. And in your case, unfortunately you were unlucky. But keep trying.
so, there's nothing we could do about that, there is?
as I understood we just need to hope the chain doen't break after those "perfect fields"...
I thought I was doing something wrong cause it happened like 3 times...
anyway I think I'm getting pretty good on this... but I think I'm having some trouble in identifying the shiny patch... as DDD said it usualy comes after 15 chains... I did a 25 chain on smeargle and didn't got a shiny one... I think my chain isn't long enought yet...
btw, good luck everyone on the hunts :D

Hey, MM, so when we trade the egg over, and then walk out of the Union Club, do we save right then?

And then do we go, hatch it, and then check it?
And if it's not shiny, go back, and trade it over?
Then delete the profile, and trade it back again?

Double Post: Oh, and there are 2 other LEGIT Shiny Mystery Gifts. ALAMOS (ONLY ALAMOS) Darkrai and Eigikan (Unsure about the upcoming event, as it is not known yet) Shaymin.

And if it's not shiny, soft reset, go back, and trade [the egg] back [out]?
Then delete the profile, and trade it back again?
This is the correct process. Corrections/clarifications in bold.

I'll look into this, but I don't believe they can be shiny either. I have the wondercard dumps, so I'll see if there are any "special" values in there which might change this.

I believe it's time for a progress rundown, now that I'm back. Not much has changed since before, however.

Sapphire: Still SRing Kyogre. 914 resets. Kinda on the backburner.
Ruby: Not needed for anything, really, so it's on loan to my 6-year-old nephew.
Fire Red: Mainly used for breeding stuff for Pal Park, but I would hunt Qwilfish if I were to hunt on it.
Leaf Green: Playing through the game to harvest Catdogs and starters. On my final play, I will SR Bulbasaur or Charmander. (I want shiny Charmander more, but I'm kind of in the process of collecting shiny Grass starters, so maybe Bulbasaur. Might just breed him. Who needs egg moves more?)
Emerald: Hatching endless Chikoritas. My current count is in the neighbourhood of 3000 eggs. I have two boxes I need to sort through and release before resuming the hatching.
Diamond: SRing Turtwig. Current (approximate) count is 256. I am counting 22HP females, each with odds 1 in 128. This is my priority hunt, since it blocks my hunting for shiny Dialga.
Pearl: Various (secret) Pokéradar targets and Rotom. Might eventually reset for Giratina or a runner. Runners are the hardest SRs ever, so they'll probably just sit there.

He doesn't. He calls them legit because they pass legal.exe's checks, which is known to not test for everything. It also doesn't tell you what it verified as. Suppose you start a new game and pick the name, ALAMOS. You hack your IDs to be the same as the event. Then, you teleport to Darkrai's island and SR. You get your shiny, then you hack it to be in the Cherish Ball and give it the correct Trainer Memo and ribbon. Hack detectors don't look at these kinds of things; they expect the user to check them himself. The hack detector will see this and think, "Oh, SR poke here. Pass." and return a pass, even though it's for the wrong reason.

Working on Turtwig and mapping songs in osu! GL to all for stuff.
