Author Topic: TeamPA's explanation of Shiny Pokemon...
 Givera Farting Nudist Member # 234 Member Rated: posted 06-22-2000 02:33 PM                    This is all in my own wordingThere are four Genes for a pokemon (A B C D) and they're stored in two bytes as AB CDNow the way the game tests if it's shiny or not is (You'll have to know the bit level command AND):If (AB and 20) = 0 Then Not ShinyIf (AB and 0F) <> 0A Then Not ShinyIf (CD and F0) <> A0 Then Not ShinyIf (CD and 0F) <> 0A Then Not Shiny((<> means "not-equal"))If a pokemon can pass all of those test (I.E. none of them give the result "Not Shiny") then he/she is shiny...This means the pokemon's genes need to be: xA AA where x is any 4 bit number who'se binary expression is xx1x where THOSE x's can be either 0 or 1 (They don't necessarily all have to be the same)I know this has been brought up before but I just thought I'd share TeamPA's information on the subject...-Givera------------------"Yea..." -Heero Yuy[This message has been edited by Givera (edited 06-22-2000).] From: Plano, Tx | Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged

I thought I'd just bring TeamPA's analysis of the situation into the open...What I find odd though is they could simplify those commands from 4 into 2...Oh well... what can we expect from the people who invented Pikachu??-Givera------------------"Yea..." -Heero Yuy From: Plano, Tx | Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged

On average yes...A shiny's Defense, Speed, and Special (Attack and Defense) genes are A or 10 - The maximum is 15 so it's pretty high up there but not the best...A side effect though is there HP will either be 8 or 0... meaning they either have medium HP or HORRIBLE HP...Their Attack can be any value though... (Red Gyarados's will be 14 though making his HP always be 0)-Givera------------------"Yea..." -Heero Yuy From: Plano, Tx | Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged
 The Great Dreamer Farting Nudist Member # 117 Member Rated: posted 06-24-2000 07:47 PM                     When does this calculate? When encountering a pokémon or breeding it? I mean, can you get shiny versions of pokémon by breeding? Like breeding shiny pokémon with other shinys to get the moves? Or are shiny pokémon exclusive to that specie and cannot be bread? I'm just afraid certain pokémon will loose their value in the battlefield because the moves that make that pokémon something useful (like parasects)...Sorry for the Barrage of questions but I know little about breeding.------------------"The Great Dreamer Has Written..."-Luis The Bard, The Great Dreamer- From: Las Vegas were everyone uses Mimic & Metronome! | Registered: Mar 2000  |  IP: Logged
 Givera Farting Nudist Member # 234 Member Rated: posted 06-24-2000 08:30 PM                    When does this calculate?Whenever it needs to - If you change a pokemon's genes with Gameshark it will also (Under most cases) change if it's shiny or not...(I.E. - If you have a shiny pokemon and then change his genes via Game Shark the next time you see him he might not be shiny - Shininess isn't stored anywhere it's just calculated every time it needs to know if a Pokemon is Shiny)When encountering a pokémon or breeding it? I mean, can you get shiny versions of pokémon by breeding?You can get Shiny pokemon through breeding and through catching as far as I know...Like breeding shiny pokémon with other shinys to get the moves?Genes are (For the most part) random... very little of their genes are determined by the parents...Or are shiny pokémon exclusive to that specie and cannot be bread?Shiny pokemon are just like any other pokemon of the same type except they have a specific range of genes... (A Red (Shiny) Gyarados will breed and act just like a regular Gyarados would)I'm just afraid certain pokémon will loose their value in the battlefield because the moves that make that pokémon something useful (like parasects)...?? Shininess does nothing but give you a clue as to what the enemies genes are...(A shiny pokemon is just as vulnerable to attacks as a regular one and no more powerful in battle)-Givera------------------"Yea..." -Heero Yuy[This message has been edited by Givera (edited 06-24-2000).] From: Plano, Tx | Registered: Apr 2000  |  IP: Logged
