Hey! i reeeaally want a shiny starter ,
I have a DSTWO wich has a SAVE SLOT option
and to have the shiny starter people has to save before chosing the starter and keep resetting until it goes shiny....

The question is can i use a save slot instead of keep soft resetting? because it takes less time , otherwise i will go nuts :hateit:

Thanks !!!! :yay:

just use pokesav or pokegen to edit your save file.
seriously?, i always have used pokesav...but i want to feel some legality :D

the odds of getting shiny is like winning the lottery, its faster just hacking. i think pokegen makes it legit. i could be wrong tho.
If you hacked it, you didn't do it legit. There's no question.
This guy feels like getting a legit shiny, so just answer his question.

You can, the question is when the stats are decided (so you want to try to save a bit before that).

Use a save slot before you decide, and do that a few times and see if the stats of the pokemon change. If none of them change at all after a few tries, then that means you saved after the stats were chosen, and you'll have to save and try from earlier.

This article is geatred towards TASing, but since you're using save states to try for luck manipulation it should apply.

Soft-resetting until you get it doesn't sound seem so "legit" as you really want it to be. Of course it's way more legit than using hacks or pokesav.
If you really really want to get a shiny starter in the most legit-est way possible without resorting to hacks or soft-setting, is to simply trade someone that have some spare shiny starters.

Technically, SR-ing for a shiny is like picking out a specific ball out of 8192 balls in a box. There is still luck and (lots of patience and effort) involved..... unlike PokeSav/PokeGen/whatever-hacking-tool-people-use-now as you have pointed out since that is totally effortless and requires no luck or skill or whatever at all.
