Thanks to Kaphotics, OmegaDonut and others who have done great research into WISHMKR jirachi. We are ready for the moment of truth. I have a SAVE file which I have constructed in such a brilliant way that it will generate a shiny jirachi when one is received.
I urge EVERYONE to try this and get back to me on whether they got one. I don't have a link cable so I cannot test this
The seeds should be:
Shiny - 353D
NonShiny - 353E
I would also like to thank loadingNOW for his research into the GBA games.
The earliest I have access to my Bonus Disc and my Sapphire cart is Saturday, but I'm sure someone else will be able to test it before then.
I have a spare Sapphire cart right now and the bonus disc in hand. Can I get some step by step instructions?
Use the xboo cable or whatever you do to put one of the save files on your cartridge.
Then receive the Jirachi as you normally would.
Then rip the sav back out and post it here, so we can see the result!
My Gamecube, Link Cable, GBAs, retail GBA carts, and Bonus Disc are in another country.
I can try in July.
I'm going to be out until the afternoon, so I'll try it out once I get home.
Would Rudolph's GBA Backup tool work?
Got SHINY save written to my cartridge. I'll try before work to find my GBA,link cable and bonus disc. I'll reply back later.
the shiny save worked. The Jirachi was shiny. Uploading in a second.
Do the non-shiny now.
Yup Non-shiny was nonshiny. There's both.
This would work for Ageto? I have the bonus disc just not a GameCube memory card with a beat save on it. Honestly I have no clue where my memory cards are.
Ageto uses a different method of generation, so the IVPID correlation would be different.
Yea, I thought about that after I posted. Sorry had a brain fart =\
aw, beaten me to it...
oh well, and now we wait for the news?
EDIT: Yep! It's shiny alright. I noticed something though. If I move or anything like that, it changes the kind of Jirachi I get. Does this mean that the production of the Jirachi is pre-determined to where you have saved/ pre-determined actions?
Yep, it worked just fine! ^_^ Bashful and whatnot. Is this the only one possible, or is there a method to generate the other eight?
Pre-existing Jirachis... Are they to be scrapped even if they fit the legal criteria, or is it possible someone received one? And are Ageto's status up in the air (both Celebi and Colosseum Pikachu) or is it guaranteed they are unable to be shiny?
It appears there is no restriction on the seeds possible, as it is some sort of checksum.
Resaving the game changes the checksum as the variables it checksums are changed.
Colo pokes, we're pretty sure aren't able to be shiny. However, I might be able to test it with OmegaDonut to see if this same checksum determines what you get from the Japanese disc as well, and then we might actually crack its method.
