Watching this late at night, sir?

Certain Emerald IDs may be (a tiny tiny bit) luckier at producing shinies, but it hasn't been researched. :0

My Emerald's ID number: 37074.
However, I've found a shiny with 50344 on my brother's Emerald (sold now <_<)

Here are some of SPPf's shiny hunter Emerald IDs:
31632 shinycollector7
33384 Heliotrope
34382 ChaosAngel
34625 Heliotrope
39916 Storm Dragoon
48827 Dragonking

Most appear to have 3, but whatever. I wanted to mind boggle your brain. Or tease you.

Oh, it's pure luck for the other games. There is no horrible RNG like in Emerald.

FR/LG seed (or gather new numbers to determine the personality value, which includes the shiny number, to create a pokemon) based on number of steps taken, game time, etc. As for R/S, I can't remember, but it's the same idea.

    So what if I left the game on for 300 hours, and kept running around?
    :d
    Oh, and yes I was.
    How did you know?
    xD
    And wouldn't R/S be the same as FR/LG?

    It's kinda pointless to do that. Just make a new file. You'd want your shiny number easy to access, and button mashing is easy to replicate.

    Say, if you found a shiny at 300 hours, would you like to wait 300 hours again for a chance of finding another shiny? What if you're .01 seconds late? Guess what, you'd have to reset and do it again. You're totally asking to waste away your life or your batteries.

    I'm a stalker; of course I would know.

    R/S and FR/LG are probably the same, yeah. I remember what the latter does; I just can't remember the former, and I'd rather not misinform you, so meh.

      But if I stay at the same amount of steps and such, and kept SRing, would there still be a chance of finding a shiny?

        Okay here is my question. I know that some Pokemon evolve when traded. I know that they'll evolve when traded to another 3dr gen GBA game. So I was wondering will they evolve if they're traded to Collesseum or XD?

        I know that question seemed kind of piontless, but I just wanted to make sure.

                  I believe it is rayquaza.

                  Try shedinja with false swipe and protect. Protect when rayquaza uses fly, and false swipe the rest of the time.

                  That wasn't my idea, by the way.

                    Actually, I suggest a high level Smeargle with Spore, Substitute, and False Swipe. I like Spore because it is 100% accurate. Use Spore, put up a Sub to protect Smeargle from any attack, and then Swipe until target Pokemon is either barely in the Red or close to it. Then throw Great Balls until you catch it. For stationary Legendaries, always save before you encounter them. That way, if it takes too long to catch (or the nature or IVs aren't good enough) just reset and try again.

                    i got really lucky catching it. What I did was freeze it. Then hurl a few Ultra Balls and it should be caught. If you cant freeze, sleep it. Avoid paralysis. That is really annoying, believe me.

                      Freezing is the most difficult status to induce. There is no move that has greater than a 10% chance at doing so.

                          Well, if you pick Mudkip as your starter, that would be your first water type. You next water types are Lotad on Route 102 and Wingull on Route 103. In addition, if you pick up the Old Rod in Dewford, you have access to Magikarp. The Good Rod is on Route 118 and the Super Rod is on Mossdeep Island. You can then find Carvanha, Wailmer, Corphish, Goldeen, etc.

                          That's all of the water pokemon I can think of (besides the obvious critters you can find in the sea once you get Surf). In other words, there are not too many early water types.

                              There is no Pokemon ability that allows you to find the Pokemon quicker.

                              Surskit if a rare Pokemon to find, just like Seedot in Emerald. Just be patient and you would eventually find it.

                              Abilities like Illuminate increases the encounter rate, but it doesn't increase a certain Pokemon's appearance. Unless its related to the Magnet Pull -> Steel Pokemon.

                                  It would probably help more if you explained what kind of mono challenge you were doing. You start out asking about Water-types and now it is Bug-type? Fill me in and I can help you more.

                                      You didn't. I was too dumb, lazy, or both to see that the Water question was an entirely different person. My apologies.

                                      As for your team, I would go with Ninjask over either Masquerain or Beautifly. It has the highest Atk in Ruby (unless you can trade in a Scyther) of all Bug/Flying-types, allowing it to utilize two physical STAB moves, not to mention its incredible speed and Baton Pass ability.

                                      What other Pokemon will you be using?
