Ok.....I'm at lake of rage trying to get that gyrados but when I battle him, It's a normal one not a red one!!!!!! WTH? Will someone explain if I should reset it or get that one as a "nintendo's games are not perfect" symbol. Heres my chart:

Huh... that's really weird.:goofy: I guess it's just a little glitch but you should still catch it. Wouldn't it be funny if you still got the red scale:eek: :eek: . How else would you get experience share???

It could be that you randomly encountered another Gyrados right before you talked to the red one :rolleyes:.... other then that it would just be a glitch and just reset unless you saved already.

Ya i agree you probably ran into a regular garados right before the red one...though highley un-likely. If thats not true your games probably glitchin....I think...:confused:

P.S. I caught it.

Well the red Gyrados always says "gayooho" when you click on him.

Pity...Did you get the Red Scale?i caught ANOTHER red gyrados, and it also had the Red Scale!I took the second Red Scale to Mr. Pokemon,and he said"I'm out of Exp Shares,come back tomorrow for a new one."WTH!Anyway, i came back the next day,and he said"Here's a new Exp Share,but I've got enough red scales,I don't need any more now."This happened in my Silver version,where i think the odds of wild shines are 1 in 2000.

The problem is definatly not encountering another wild gyrados.
I've encountered wild gyrados in the lake before getting the red gyrados. The problem might be shiny related, kinda like legendary shinies. Maybe that one red gyrados was a "shiny" one and that made it unshiny. Anyways that sucks for you because now u cant get shiny gyrados.:sad:

I know exactly what happened! It was a shiny but if it wasn't a shiny it would've been shiny, so it reversed it and made it regular Gyrados. But still, that's weird!:confused:

Wow, I'm surprised at the amt. of ppl who still play RBY and GSC. Anyway, there's no point in restarting. The fact that it's shiny has no signifigance or value, since it's always shiny.

But since shinies in G/S/C have higher Special stats, the red Gyarados would've been a better catch.

It's still not worth it. Going through at least 4 badges only to restart is a completely foolish idea.

Actually, shinies have lower IVs than most regular pokemon

Of course people still play The old games. It's the only way I can use Celebi and Mew. Because I don't have a GBA Gameshark

You ppl are confusing me with all the "if it wasn't shiny it would be shiny" explainations. :crackup: And WifiFX,you still haven't answered my question,DID YOU GET THE RED SCALE!!!

maybe it was a shiny garaydos but then since its supposed to be shiny it made it unshiney.

It must be another error in the game then if the Gyarados WifiFX talked to was the one that is the topic of this thread. The Deter Values (DVs are the cause for shiny Pokemon in GSC) of this Red Gyarados will always be the same so it is impossible for it to be normal coloured or 'unshiny' by chance. In theory, there should be a 0% chance of this happening so if / when it does it is an error in the game.

Wow that's freaky. I don't think it can never be not shiny so that's probably a glitch. Oh well. Not like the Red Gya was anything special, since everyone got it.
