    But as frustrating as it is to fish in the games that can Synchronize things, this may be the way to go.

    You can also do this is R/S/E, in Sootopolis City. Prferably Emerald since Synchronization works there. Magikarps are on the surface area. Just SURF around a while, or use Sweet Scent.

    I may try this in my 2nd Emerald.... hmmm......

    Thanks for giving me the idea dude!

    Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down..


    I just realized I can do this on my new GBA SP.

    Epic. :D
    Or preferably NOT in Emerald, seeing as how Emerald is a horrible game to go shiny hunting on...

    Furthermore, it's actually faster to FISH for Magikarp on FR/LG. So you're wasting your time if you're soft resetting for it.

    If you REALLY want a shiny Magikarp that badly, though, and you don't want to fish for it on FR/LG (seeing as how that's the fastest method) or you simply don't have FR/LG, you're better off breeding. At least that way it can have good IVs or a good nature.

    Just my two cents.
