Pokemon Shiny Hunting In The Video Games

I tend to RNG manip in gen 3 (including the GameCube games). It just feels satisfying to hit those perfect frames than soft resetting. But I am currently soft resetting for a shiny Ho oh in Gold which I’m thinking is going to be way over odds. I wish there was a way to manip it but oh well.

Manip is very cool to see! Definitely a skill feat. Doing it in Colo is super cool.

The Colo and XD ones are definitely cool. Super satisfying too. Maybe once I actually get around to completing a shiny living dex in that gen, I’ll move to gen 4 and manip there.

Giratina has been found! Didn’t keep track of encounters but it was probably around 3000-4000.

I use an app counter. How long did it take? Congrats btw!

I hunted quite a few in sv.
In previous generations I find it to be far too tedious but it’s been really fun seeing them in the overworld, though the picnic mechanic is quite sluggish.

I hope going forward it can remain accessible, and though I understand some longer term hunters are not too pleased with how quick it can be.
