Right now, I'm trying to get a shiny Torchic. Aren't there easier ways?

it is legit though :\

I suppose "hax" makes it sound a little too much like using a cheating device, when what I really meant was just that's it digging through game code and exploiting it for gain

You can't "legitimately" RNG for a shiny starter. Abusing the RNG for a shiny requires you to know your secret ID, which usually requires some extra hardware. For a starter, it absolutely requires the extra hardware.

well, you would just breed it later. He didn;t require the starter was shiny, just wanted a shiny torchic

Is this a new development? The PID generation for Emerald is a little funky, and last time I was doing this it wasn't well understood. At the time, breeding for shinies was not possible.
