    Wherever you want me, baby.
    So yeah, title says it all. Can anyone give me some encouragement? Soft resetting is a bitch. I'm looking for any starter, shiny, really. I know it's still early game, but I'm at around 100SRs right now and even though I shouldn't be surprised, still no shiny. But I'm usually super lucky. I know that doesn't really factor into anything. I know I could get it on my 101st try, or my 5,393rd try.


    So yeah! Any motivation to keep me going would be great! Or just a discussion on shiny soft resetting would be great for motivation.

    Thank you:)

    OH. MY. GOD. I spat out my beer. It's going along with his voice! Ahhh!! I love it!


    -And I did on my Nidoking that I brought over from Gen 1, after trying for hours to get the "shiny-pokemon-from-gen-1" glitch working. I had to throw the poke away because it just didn't... feel worth it? If that makes sense? I didn't have any attachment to it. It felt fake.


    ... but mah shiny TOTO won't! B)

    Even though I haven't shiny hunted in HGSS before, I give you good luck as a somewhat shiny hunter myself. Just persevere!

    Thank you so much! I've been shiny hunting so much in Sun and Moon (and even caught a shiny Drampa - hardest thing to get, I swear.). I'm so stoked for the shinies to appear!

    Goodluck with your shiny hunt!~

    The first shiny I found unintentionally was a random encounter in Plat in Eterna Forest, it was a shiny cascoon :)

    If you keep going you'll get it eventually. That's all I've got.

    Thanks dude! I really appreciate it! And I'm sure it was a while ago, but congrats on finding that random shiny! :) I found a random Makuhita in ORAS, and then I found a shiny Absol and a shiny something else randomly in SUMO. Can't remember that second shiny though. But thank you!
    4 days... damn. Haha! Glad you don't regret it! See, that's the feeling you get sexy@BORTZ ;) Whereas when you cheat, it's like, "Meh. I know it's fake... it doesn't feel special..."

    Thanks man! And hey, your avatar makes me uncomfortable! I love it!

    I have never gotten a legit shiny ;o;

    Mostly because I suck at hunting. You should listen to this while you wait:

    All but one of my shinys were completely random. in oras, I did horde encounters for 2 hours for a shiny spinda. ended up with like 3000 spinda encounters total.

    Thanks so much guys!

    Another question. If I double-up and start SRing on an emulator, on the PC, and I use save states, would it work too? Or does the shiny value revolve around each "reboot", if that makes sense? Like, I don't want to use save states, only to find that I'm running into the "exact versions" of the same starters each time lol

    So far with save states, I keep choosing Chikarita, but I see NO differences. He's always:

    Brave
    HP: 20
    Att: 11
    Def: 12
    Sp Att: 13
    Speed: 9

    With the ability, Overgrow.

    So am I right in thinking that save states are keeping the values the same? Meaning the values reset upon actual reboot?

    Don't use savestates. I think shiny starters are decided on the file select or on soft reset.

    iirc, shiny seed is based on statup time. savestates keep that old time.
