Been searching the net forever for answers, have a general idea. I have been trading over on reddit r/pokemontrades, have seen several shiny birth island deoxys I know they were obtained on emulators. Just curious if anyone has tried or knows how abouts to.. go about this process. Have an r4 chip on the way in the mail. Guess my problem isn't so much getting the deoxys but getting it to a game cartridge. I am aware I could just download one I know what I want isn't considered legit, but regardless I would like it to be unique, my OT, non masterballed etc. Etc. Hope someone knows what I'm talking about, would appreciate any help/info.
I understand you don't consider the downloading part "Legit",
But are you able to "Legitly" get to Birth Island, and Soft Reset until Deoxys is encountered shiny?
My point is, you might have to resort to something "less legit", but at least you know you caught it yourself.
Note: GBA games can't be played on R4
Important Questions for the Tutorial
1. Do you have a DS that supports GBA games? (DS phat, DS lite etc.)
2. Do you have a retail FRLG/Emerald GBA cart?
3. Do you have a retail Gen IV cart?
3. Do you have an Action Replay for GBA?
If "Yes" to all:
If "No" to any of the above in the questions:
Hope I've given you some ideas
Thank you very much for the input, will definentlh try this out.
Reason I'm using an emulator is cause I don't have an AR for gba and there 60+$ on ebay so trying for a cheaper option ha.
Edit: actually how would I go about getting the sav to my retail kart; guess that is my only question on your info, if you can elaborate, I'd appreciate it.

If you want any of these mons without the Classic "clone" Ribbon, just download the pkm file and use PokeGTS
There are alternative ways to backup a GBA retail cart save file. GameShark v1/2 & ARv3 can do this. There's also a cable you could make which is an mbv cable, but you'd have to have older operating system running for it to work.
In addition to what everyone said, and based on what I think you have:
1. Gen III to Gen IV. Pal park on latest desmume
2. Use your R4 to transfer you emulator sav to a retail Gen 4 cart
(R4i dongle (cartridge save reader for pc), Or ds save manager, Which also allows gba backup and restore (ds homebrew) Or savsender and savreceiever (ds homebrew), search them all up)
3. retail Gen IV poketransfer to Gen V on your R4 (That's if your R4 can run Gen V; clones usually need a special Wood firmware )
Alternatively, at step 2, use pokegen, extract deoxys from your emulator save, upload into pokecheck then queue for Gen V GTS download
