    I don't know much

    but I do know the game generates "rng seeds" every time you start up the game

    you want to hit a shiny seed in order to get a shiny egg

    but since it's random, it could be in 500 eggs or on the next one

    the RNG can also be abused in emerald and gen IV because of the way the seeds work (it's always zero in emerald, and it's based on time, date, and the number of frames before you enter the game world) and the way the RNG advances (consistently every frame in emerald; triggered by certain events, many of which can be triggered by the player, in gen IV)

    people will hate you for doing it, and it never worked any better for me in Gen IV than plain old soft-resetting because i couldn't get my times consistent to within a few-millisecond range, but the option is there and there is (i think) an entire subforum dedicated to the subject on smogon if you're interested (if not there are definitely a handful of threads)

    however, i have no idea whether or not they've yet cracked or even scratched the surface of the gen V RNG

    Jasmine is so happy in that picture.

    Also I always found it odd that Jasmine would be the first Steel gym leader, because she's all unassuming and you figure it'll be a grass gym or something then BAM FUCKING STEELIX ALL UP INS.

    On another note, I have to breed/train a Ferrothorn and Lucario and then my gym will be ready.

    anybody got any tips on breeding shinies? Should I not turn the game off? Should I get like a hundred eggs and then hatch them all? Is there a chance the track could bend?

    You have an international pokemon, ditto being easiest obviously, right? Because that makes it like 4 times easier

    Well here's what I did for the shiny roggenrola. Got a litwick with flame body to halve hatching time and made him the only pokemon in my party. Gave the pokemon to the day care lady, and then just rode back and forth on the bike, collecting the eggs from the old man when he calls you. Doing this should keep you supplied with enough eggs to always have a full party. As soon as one hatches, deposit it in the pc and talk to the day care man to check if he has an egg (if a pokemon is holding an egg and your party is full he won't call you over).

    Rinse, repeat.

    I personally turned my game off and saved multiple times. Got my shiny after about 20 boxes or so.

    That is indeed the case. You could have one of mine. Especially if you have the equivalent vulture-thing.

    So I didn't know that not only do you have to beat the game and watch the credits, the game forces you to save before you can check Reshiram's nature? Did I damage my save data when I shut it off in shock, when the message "don't turn off, game is saving," popped up?

    so is anyone actually interested in that mystery dungeon livestream let's play thing i mentioned earlier?

    i've been figuring out how to go about recording gameplay without melting my laptop and making awful choppy videos and record ventrilo conversations and things, and i think i could make it work (once i stop being sick and my voice comes back) if people are willing to participate

    but, like i said before, it's perfectly possible that this will turn out to be a terrible idea, i won't pretend otherwise
