1/8192? Sounds like you're letting the game play you. Poorly at that, since at best you can get 1/1024.

For me, I have 1/1 odds on unaltered game/save/hardware.


You know what he means, just because you RNG does not negate the rareness if the game is played as intended.

Why is everyone on these boards always a smartass?


To bad that its not "played as intended" rng affects rarity due to trading thus making rarity insanely useless. Which means it in fact does negate rareness even if a poke was found randomly it is always going to be inferior interms of metaphorical worth.

And yet, they are still rarer than the regular poke. Hence they have rarity, even if diminished by RNG or hacking.

Is it a problem when useless mons are actually useless? Not really. Hint: The vast majority of shiny mons are useless.

Shinji X Asuka is the most sacred pairing in all of anime. That is an unnegotiable fact.

It's natural for people to cherish things that are rare. It happens in real life all the time, we assign a lot larger value to things because of their scarcity even if what it is shouldn't be worth so much. For example take an unopened Pokemon red or blue version, it's value is in the hundreds of dollars even though all you are getting is a cardboard box with a game of antiquated technology in it. But because it is so rare it has a much greater value than what it otherwise would be worth.


Like the perfect man/woman.

Shiny mons are nice for knowing that I RNG'd the mon correctly.... that's about it. Saves a hell of a lot of time capturing if I know that I didn't hit my spread right away.
