    Hi,

    i'm interested into shinys in Emerald, from what I've heard, shiny pokemon im emerald work different because of battery. Every 2,5-3 minutes I'm getting a shiny frame and if i hit it, i'm going to get shiny, right?

    So my question is, right now I'm in front of Beldums pokeball. Will softresetting work to get shiny even if I dont know where is my shiny frame? Also does SR work with other pokemons like Groundon, Mew, Rayquaza...?

    Soft resetting won't do the job in Emerald, the only thing that works is running away from battles (which obviously doesn't work with Beldum)

    Also, I heard about RNG abuse and I do not mind to use it, Its kinda coplicated, and i'm not willing to waste so many time on that method.

    It's not the same feeling with using cheats...

    Well the RNG mechanic in Emerald is broken. Your initial seed will therefore always be 0x0000. That means that if you're soft resetting you'll always encounter the same Pokemon when you trigger the encounter at the same time. You will meet a number of different "versions" of Beldum by SRing but you'd still have to be incredibly lucky to get a shiny with this method since you'll always trigger the encounter after a certain number of seconds after loading the save file and most likely, you won't have any shiny frames during these seconds.

    Exactly. And you need to make sure that the battery of these games is still working (or the RTC function is turned on in an emulator)
