      Yes, you can. indistinguishable from this autistic frick's set up even. For some reason the shiny Pokémon autists care about "legit" shinies though, so they record themselves catching each one. Even then, you can just use Action Replay or other cheating tools to modify shiny drop rates so you can still fool these autists.

      For a sample of shiny autism, consider the following video:

        There's no achievement in shiny hunting, it's just a matter of time. Winning a Pokemon tournament would be an achievement since that actually takes skill.

          How is it an achievement? You are just pulling a slot machine.

          If we're being honest, hacking it is a more of an achievement than rolling the dice until you win. The former takes skill and knowledge, the latter takes stupidity

          How is it an achievement? You are just pulling a slot machine.

          It falls into typical RPG grind autism where your willingness to do something absolutely tedious for 50 hours is viewed as an accomplishment. Other people wouldn't do that, but you would, so that makes you better than them. The actual shiny is inconsequential; of course nobody would care that much about a different color palette, and it's why they video tape themselves: to verify the autism.

    What are some very autistic shinies that’d warrant such a setup? Colosseum bonus disc shiny Jirachi comes to mind but what are some others?

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Not that long ago I watched a video about a guy who caught every single Shadow Pokemon as shinies in Colosseum, according to him the process was way more complicated than in mainline games because shiny Pokemon won't be shown as shiny for the player because the game also takes into consideration the opponents' Trainer ID, so he had to run like half a dozen programs and do really weird stuff like watching how many times his Espeon blinks in order to confirm he was in the right seed and that the Pokemon he was snatching would turn shiny once he captured it.

      Some demon designs are still sprite swaps so there'd need to be some more designs first. SMT doesn't focus as hard on the collection aspect either so it's something that'd probably appeal to less of the playerbase than with Pokémon.

        While we enjoy playing a variety of video games and find fulfillness in truly curating the medium to our tastes, some people's brain chemistry is probably wired in such a way that they find genuine enjoyment in repeated tasks. I do agree with you though, it seems really stupid from an outside perspective when you could be playing (or even creating) so much more shit.

      That's where it falls apart for me. I'm an autistic perfectionist and ain't wasting time to get a functionally worse dragon. RNG manip is where it's at. If anyone is autistic enough to spend hours shiny hunting Gen 3-5 then they're autistic enough to learn RNG manip. It's more worthwhile, skill based, and educational. I caught my perfect shiny Latios in Black 2 on my DS lite no hacks when I was in highschool without some hundred hour slog. Although I'm brokenhearted nowadays and tend to just force the PRNG seed in emulator.

    I don't shiny hunt but at the same time, I understand people wanting a legit shiny and not just hacking one. The appeal isn't JUST the color, it's also the rarity itself; if you just hack it, it loses the appeal of rarity. It's like owning rare cards in a card game instead of just printing proxies. Personally, I'm just happy with the shinies I encounter just by playing through the games over the year, each one is memorable to me as I remember where I caught it and what I was doing in the game. And while I can't prove to other people that they're legit, that's fine, because I personally know that they are.

            Nah motherfricker, Gachagays are the lowest form of life on this planet
            Imagine being enslaved to flashy anime titty JPEGs
            Playing every day to get muh timed rewards and muh bonus points
            If you're not paying with money, you're paying with your time
            Any free to play game with these mechanics can go straight to the trash along with the people who tolerate that shit

    I was blessed to come across 3 shinies in my lifetime: one a Bidoof (Platinum), one a Golbat (SS), and one a Klink (White). I remember asking /vp/ when I was younger if I should catch the Bidoof, because I didn't know shit about shinies.

    What else are they going to do with their lives?
    Get a career?
    Meet a woman?
    Hang out with their friends?
    Do sports?

    No!
    All of that is impossible for these people, they're mentally and physically weak, alienated, shunned and not sexual beings who should reproduce.
    It's much better for them to waste away like the genetic garbage they are.

    If they lived in another era, they would've been fed to the wolves or enslaved and worked to death, they're worthless and their lives empty and meaningless.
    They're NOT human.

      brace yourself but the OP's pic has a wife and three kids, these types are outliners for sure, but when they do get the dream of a family, house and good job they usually get worse with their habits not better at them.

      pallette swaps.
      I think in Gen2 they were determined by IVs so technically a shiny usually did have good IVs.

    Yeah, I did the whole shiny hunting autism thing in SV for a bit, got bored of making sandwiches then autistically spawning in and despawning outbreaks for hours.

      The whole point of activities like shiny hunting is that the kind of people that enjoy them will never have "all the shinies they want." There's like a thousand pokemon at this point and every new generation just adds more to their backlog

    I think finding shinies by accident makes them more special imo. Playing through Diamond and finding a gold Shinx and then later a Buizel was pretty cool. I could hunt these things like these autists do but I like the surprise better.

    Speedrunning would be a good contender but at least the result of a speedrun is cool
    The result of shiny hunting is a pokemon who is likely uglier than the original

      the guy who's setup OP posted streams when he does hunts, so more or less he is entertaining people. you do it alone without an audience its pretty much for your own benefit which can get old fast

      Yes. I had a near-death experience a few years ago and one of my last thoughts was wishing I had obtained a perfect Final Fantasy XII save file that would include perfect HP/MP, 99 of every farmable item (includin Zodiac Spears and Danjuro), and all the missable items like Jaya Stick, Small Package, 99 Slime Oil, Pinewood/Sandalwood Chops, etc. I also regretted not being able to play every JRPG ever made since I love them so much, as well as not getting Scarab Lord and mount in WoW, or the Rivendare Charger in Stratholme, or the Time-lost Proto Drake mount. Realizing I would never play JRPGs or World of Warcraft again made me very sad.

      I never understood why they get mad at that shit, is it just them admitting they like the bragging rights and those things take that away? Like I enjoy hunts and shit in games and don't like taking that feeling of getting it "naturally" but half my friends used AR or PC modding and I never gave a shit, why is it so hard for everyone to just do what they like in single player games?

    I thought about shiny hunting for a ribbon master but decided my time would be better spent doing actual gameplay getting the ribbons and just genned it instead. The battle frontier is actually pretty fun when you can skip the initial entry grind. I even encountered a shiny in the frontier itself, which I didn't know was even possible.

    any sort of low rng hunting is a sign of autism or depression

    that shit was meant to be in rpg's for replays to occasionally spice things up, not for you to spend 50 hours grinding for
