I may try a few times, but if I don't then I don't. However, I'd like my starter to be a female so I can reproduce it. ^_^

I'll try once. If it's not Shiny, meh, I'll keep playing.
I wonder though, what will a legit Shiny starter be worth online?

ROFL I can't be bothered to wait like 2 weeks just to get a shiny starter i'd rather play not wait!

Oh, believe me - it'll take more than two weeks. Try two months, and you'll probably still never see one.

If I'm ever bored out of my mind, I might wh0re my Starter out to Ditto and just hatch a bunch of Eggs, trying for a Shiny that way. But I'd be way to anxious to start the game to waste time on a Shiny from the get go.

It doesn't matter if you get a shiny or not. At all. Besides, the shiny might have WORSE stats than the non-shiny one you had before. And that would be sad. VERY sad.

yea that would be a shame to think about it i like the orginal color better lol

I won't I'm just going to play the game if I happen to get a shiny starter yeppe to meh but if not oh well.

I will just start the game if I dont get it the first time then o well. I doubt a shiney anything is worth much online, Action Replay DS.

I'll try once, but what is the point. It just changes it's color, and half of the shiny pokemon look ugly anyway.

Ridley
04-05-2007, 07:52 PM
I'm only gonna restart for nature. If I don't have a shiny by the time I have an Adamant Turtwig, I'm not trying any more after that.

Caecity
04-05-2007, 07:53 PM
Yesh half of them do....well many!

I won't try for a shiny starter. I tried for a shiny Mudkip once and after a week it didn't work so I was like "**** this!" and settled for a female. That is what I will do, because I'm not sure you can find wild Ditto in Sinnoh.

Yea you can look on Serebii..pokédex.

SinnoBoy1
04-05-2007, 08:04 PM
I'm pretty sure there will be a Ditto in Diamond and Pearl, because if they didn't, it would comprimize the whole art of breeding. For instance, you can't get two Empoleons to make a baby Piplup. And there are some Pokemon that normally, you would only find one in the whole game.(unless you have both versions) So in that case Ditto has to be in those games.

There is a Ditto in the wild..route 218..that's what Serebii said.

Ditto wasn't in RS. I don't know about Emerald. I did find out that it will be available in DP using Pokeradar.

Yggdrasill
04-05-2007, 08:07 PM
I'm not going to try getting a shiny starter, on my first playthrough of the game I want to enjoy it and not spend hours trying to get a shiny starter Pokemon.

Ditto was in Emerald, in Desert Underpass, a new area that wasn't in Ruby and Sapphire.

Yea who wants to spend hours playinng for a shiny pokémon when you can be having fun battling 'n' stuff.

That sounds like a fun area.(Ridley)

Caecity

Yeh, it is cool a easy way to hatch eggs too!
Edit SOrry that was off topic now back ON topic shiny starter wow neat...xDD

MagmarMan
04-05-2007, 08:24 PM
Probably not. If it is I'll keep it.

Saremu
04-05-2007, 08:28 PM
Yeah I'd keep it, but I wouldn't train it with the rest of my pokemon. I'd get to the end of the game and then EV train the crap out of it, or not train it and trade it so someone who will.

Ridley
04-05-2007, 08:56 PM
That sounds like a fun area.(Ridley)
Not really. You just get tormented by Dittos and Whismurs. The only good thing in there is, at the end of it, you get the second fossil that you didn't get. :]

My cousin has, it took him about 5134 times because every one out 8000 something you'll be likely to find one. It was a shiny charmander and he soon gaved it to me and now i have a shiny charizard. =P

One time.. when I had Fire red, (I lost it) I was in the safari zone, and....... I was mental because....... I saw a shiny chansey (first time I even seen an " incolor" chansey) thought it was normal colored and easy to find and........me through rock like caveman..sorry but I did....:confused:

Exactly. You think after waiting 2+ years, I'm gonna restart my game about 5,000 times to try getting a shiny starter? No way!

Though I will restart it enough to get a good-natured starter. :wink:

04-06-2007, 01:00 AM

Because release dates are a part of promotion and the whole politics of media.

Without them, we'd have nothing to anticipate, because it would be in our hands the moment it's completed.

Plus, I could use the extra couple weeks to prepare... :cool:

A shiny starter? No. Unless I get it the first time. I would want a shiny something else better. Which I will find and probadly capture. (unless its a runner....)

I mean a legit one. Glitched Pokemon have blue Pokeball icons next to them, so people will know they're fake. Plus, people can look at the Originally Caught memo to see if it was caught in the right place. I can bet that a lot of people wont want to risk infecting their game with fake glitched Pokemon.

A shiny starter? No. Unless I get it the first time. I would want a shiny something else better. Which I will find and probadly capture. (unless its a runner....)

That's why I plan to have a Mean-Look Baton Passer who can switch in my False Swiping Scizor. I always like to have a good catcher group.

lmao I really want a Shiny Pikachu , But I want it to know Volt Tackle
So Catch Like 50 Female Pika , Hopefully one has Light Orb
The breed with a male and viola
A Pika with Volt tackle
Chances are slim that it will be shiny

Very slim.. I either want a shiny Chasney or maybe a Bidoof err who knows. and it would be a pichu.

i wouldn't really care if my starter was shiny or not, playing the game is more important than just sitting there like a zombie repeating the same process over and over until u get a shiny...besides i can use my shiny ditto from emerald to transform into a shiny version of my pokemon during a double battle, (:susp: even though it's shiny just during the battle :tongue:).

It would take forever to get that shiny starter. I'll just play the game, and it I come across a shiny in the wild, I'll catch it. This is mainly because I got fed up with looking for a shiny and never finding it.

Lol, you shoulda made it remain a Magikarp. Red Gyarados is nothing new to GSC players XD

It's all luck I reckon. For this kind of things, you can't "try" to get. The chances of a shiny is one in 8192... as long as you play enough, you'll get one.
