Is it possible to hatch Shiny Manaphy from an egg recieved from a Pokemon Ranger game? I hear some where:
"It is possible to hatch a shiny Manaphy, but only under certain circumstances. Once you recieve the Manaphy egg from Pokemon Ranger, you can trade it to a different Pokemon game, and then the chances of it hatching shiny increase."
Is this true?
Yes. "Gamefreak fails".
Yeah... the Shiny/PID check wasn't performed in this event from Pokemon Ranger.
Something's not called a miracle because it doesn't happen. It's called a miracle because once in a while, it does happen.
Yes, Manaphy Egg is treated as a Method 1 Pokemon. If you RNG the shiny PID for Game B in Game A, and then you traded it to game B, it will hatch shiny (the animation will still be normal, however, but the result will still be shiny.)
IIRC they might be hatched shiny if they were traded to other trainer (not the original trainer who received it from Ranger).. Unfortunately i kinda forgot where i read bout that before ..
Huh.. Ok i wonder how can i missed the 2nd part of the 1st post, must be too tired i guess .. Either way, i'm sorry, my bad..
So, can you RNG Abuse the Manaphy egg on the game that originally recieved the Manaphy egg?
You can abuse the RNG, but it will NEVER hatch shiny within the same game it was received in, because the check when it hatches will change the PID to one that results in a nonshiny Manaphy. Then you would have wasted all that time and effort. You HAVE to trade the egg to get a shiny, but you can abuse the RNG in the game you got it in to provide a PID that will result in a shiny in the game you are trading to.
You can also,
RNG it on your own game (with a shiny spread), trade it to someone, doesn't matter who. Trade it back to your game. And then you can get it shiny too.
If you make it shiny for yourself, and trade it when it hatches the Anti-Shiny code still activates since it checks the information of the person who received the egg and not the one who hatches it.
So it must be shiny for the other person, also with this there's 1 chance to do it legitimately since once you trade the egg the game is saved and you can't get another one right away.
