About This File

This gift was programmed in the game to be shiny locked. However, due to a programming oversight,
it is possible to receive the Partner Cap Pikachu as shiny (standard odds),
if your Trainer Shiny Value (TSV) is not 1009. This is the only Pikachu Cap Variant that can be received shiny.
(Note: Still available shiny, up to update Version 1.2)

How the game mechanic worked, was that the game would generate a PID that is not shiny compared to your TID/SID.
After that generation, the game will proceed to overwrite the Pikachu's TID/SID with Ash's.
Hence, there is a chance that the PID generated for the Pikachu will be shiny against TID/SID of Ash, as the game doesn't check for that.

This was discovered by @wwwwwwzx when reviewing the game's code, who then went ahead to test and prove it with RNG.
A few other users also corroborated the data with their own findings.

The data below refers to the file itself, not the encounter as a whole.

But whats the point of having this shiny if it doesn't change at all? lol

Also is it able to be tradeable online if it's legit now?

It's an impossible creature that was available due to a glitch, and now determined to be able to be obtained legitimately. That's good enough for me.

(even if Color isnt different, it certainly sparkles!)

To my understanding, it might not even be blocked to begin with.

I guess I should start soft resetting for one, in case they ever patch this bug.

that is a great plan!

I think there was a glitch with my summary program. I believe the file has it (my in-game copy certainly has it)

Also, wishing ribbon, not souvenir ribbon

i got this way back in novenber already. how can you find it 4 months later?

 

It would be nice if you could clarify what you are saying.

You happened to get a shiny one by chance? You knew the shiny lock wasn't implemented properly?

Please elaborate.

No no, it is not that I didn't understand you, if was more of a "need more details to work with here" type of situation.

If you got a shiny in an hour, you were very lucky. (cause it's standard odds)

In any case, when we previously viewed the game data, it was understood that this event was shiny locked.
However, it was recently found out that the implementation of the shiny lock was faulty.

Plus, before this, I don't think we got any reports about anyone receiving a shiny one.

yeah I can understand that. to be fair, I would have difficulties believing it, since we know it is locked.

Only other way for this kind of things, is to discover how it works or what glitched up. (much like the Crabrawler issue presently, for example)

What date's PKHeX you using? (latest version is 18 Jan)

Amazing find for sure, i guess i'll go SR for one later and wait patiently to see if GF tries to correct the mistake since i do doubt they'll leave it how it is, their intention was probably to shiny lock it solely because it is Ash's pikachu which isn't even shiny in the anime... but then again it's the exact same sprite and wearing a hat like the real pikachu does so who knows.
