This is literally the first time I play a Pokemon game for shiny hunting, I've never done it before. So I figured I'd get out of my comfort zone. This is probably gonna be my last one too. xD
DryIce53 17 May 2023 05:29
why soo serious...also put in red pokemon yellow in red saying: aye serious? (anyways i gonna fish later and good work who push our limits)
ManyHours 1 Jun 2023 22:49
When is the Subset of this subset for all the Shiny Pokemon available with the fossil conversion glitch?
Maximdraco 2 Jun 2023 16:26
I'm tempted, but not for now
CGreenComplete 7 Jun 2023 06:48
Just to confirm, a icon or message should appear on screen when fishing for pokemon that appears when you are battling it. Does it pop up above the encounter number on the bottom right of the screen?
Maximdraco 7 Jun 2023 22:09
Depending on the emulator the icon can appear in different places, but the default location is down right, the icon will appear once the battle start and if the pokemon have shiny DVs
CGreenComplete 12 Jul 2023 14:55
I know I have mentioned it before but I do think this set should be updated to add all the gen1 games. It would add an additional 16 pokemon to be huntable without doing the fossil glitch. The new pokemon would be

Clefairy - Game Corner - Red / Blue
Nidorina - Game Corner - Red / Blue
Nidorino - Game Corner - Red / Blue
Clefable - Game Corner - JP Blue
Nidoran♀ - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Lickitung - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Jynx - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Farfetch'd - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Tangela - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Machoke - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Seel - In-Game Trade - Red / Blue
Nidoran♂ - In-Game Trade - JP Red / Green
Kangaskhan - In-Game Trade - JP Blue
Tauros - In-Game Trade - JP Blue
Haunter - In-Game Trade - JP Blue
Graveler - In-Game Trade - JP Blue

I hope it gets considered
Maximdraco 12 Jul 2023 17:38
I don't think there is anything stoping me from creating separated shiny subsets for all of those games
Maximdraco 12 Jul 2023 17:40
That would be better if we had all four games as 1 entry, and I don't think yellow should be mixed with them, unlike Red/Blue, J Blue and J Green
CGreenComplete 12 Jul 2023 20:06
Do you mean make another set for all 4 games (Red Blue, Jp Blue and JP Green?) One set for each of these 4. I'm just thinking about that Dragonair achievement 4 times...
Maximdraco 12 Jul 2023 20:47
That's the fun part >:)
CGreenComplete 13 Jul 2023 13:07
Oof. This is going to be rough, good job I enjoy the grind
Slackot 8 Aug 2023 18:10
I don't think the redundancy of the same process in 4 "different" games is worth it. Add the 16 unique mons on a separate subset, if you'd like, but I don't think making hunters hunt for the same mons is a good idea.
Maximdraco 8 Aug 2023 21:37
I haven't thought-out seriously about making more of this for Gen1, for a side I could make a entire subset for each one, but I could also make one for all of them
ChickenxChaser 31 Jan 2024 22:15
Just trying to confirm that a minimum of two playthroughs are needed to master this because of both Omanyte and Kabuto correct? I'm unaware of any way to get both fossils in 1 playthrough in Yellow Version.
Maximdraco 1 Feb 2024 02:14
I think there is a glitch that let you get both, I think is the same glitch to get Mew from a fossil, maybe there is another one, but there is also no problem in not doing all in a single run
ChickenxChaser 1 Feb 2024 03:07
Ah okay great thanks Maximdraco! That will save me some time :)
hylia7 19 Feb 2024 21:52
Is it forbidden to use multiple instances of the emulator?
Maximdraco 20 Feb 2024 00:26
That is allowed
hylia7 20 Feb 2024 00:48
Thanks!
