  1. Please let me know when you find a method; I've been looking for one for ages as well. Shiny flawless Method 1 encounters *are* technically possible in Emerald. Trainer IDs and Secret IDs can be manipulated exactly the same way as encounter IV/PIDs can, and just as easily. Yes, you do have to be willing to leave your game on for weeks on end and time the encounter down to 1/60 second, but it is completely possible. Just very improbable.
  2. So it's pretty much confirmed that there can be a legit AuroraTicket on a US Emerald, and by extension, a shiny Deoxys with perfect IVs (Emerald RNG manipulation) from origin location "Hoenn" knowing Gen III exclusive moves. Yay!:biggrin: About the Wonder Card: I'm very surprised that a French WC distribution system designed to distribute to French FR/LG could also distribute to US Emerald before French Emerald was released. However, I do know that the deliveryman color mistake is true, as well as the double exclamation points.
  3. All my Master Balls have been used on shinies, which would comprise a grand total of...one. Having to chuck 99999 other Poke Balls at a roaming legendary is nothing compared to the potential pain of losing a shiny because it might teleport, or explode, etc. The only exception is on Greevil's Shadow Lugia in , but ONLY because it is impossible to encounter a shiny in that game.
  4. Really? If it's true, that's very interesting. Could someone else also test transferring the Eon Ticket from an English R/S to a French (or other non-English European language) Emerald? If it works, then that gives credibility to a French AuroraTicket distribution machine being able to send it to an English Emerald game. (Note: All English Gen III games are 100% identical, regardless of whether it was sold in the US, UK, Australia, etc.)
  5. Oh, I wasn't aware that Gen III games could only hold one WC at a time. This makes it significantly likely that the entire "sending cartridges to Nintendo of Europe" event is just an unfortunately false rumor that spread so much that almost everyone believed it to be true. There's still one bit of hope though: I definitely know that Emerald was released in the UK in the middle of the AuroraTicket distribution for FR/LG. While it's quite unlikely, could a UK Emerald receive the AuroraTicket from a machine designed to distribute it to FR/LG? Probably not. Also something to think about: The AuroraTicket doesn't seem to have been released for Japanese Emeralds either. This makes any instance of Birth Island on any Emerald cart illegal.
  6. I'm almost positive that there was some event (might have been only in the UK) that allowed players of any Gen III game to send their game to Nintendo and receive all the tickets (minus the Old Sea Map) on their game. This includes the Eon Ticket on R/S and E, the MysticTicket on FR/LG/E, and the AuroraTicket on FR/LG and E. This has been backed up by several searches through old forum archives, as well as Serebii.
  7. There's the answer I needed. In theory, someone could have sent a US Emerald to a friend in the UK, who would then send it to Nintendo of Europe to get the AuroraTicket, who would then send it back to the friend in the UK, who would then send it back to the person in the US. It would cost a lot of money and would almost certainly not be worth it, but it makes an English-language origin Birth Island Deoxys with location "Hoenn" (in Gen IV and V games) legal. Now that this has been resolved, here's two more related questions: - Could the same have been done by sending a US Emerald to Japan to receive the Old Sea Map, or is there a language lock? - I know that Nintendo of Europe would also put the Eon Ticket on Emerald, which is the only way to get an Eon Ticket on an English Emerald without mixing records with R/S. Did they also put the Old Sea Map on? (ridiculously unlikely but you never know)
  8. I've been trying to get a definite answer to this for years, and I've never gotten one. Was it ever possible to get a legit AuroraTicket on a US copy of Pokemon Emerald? I definitely know the following is true: - The AuroraTicket was distributed at Pokemon Rocks America 2004 for FR/LG, before Emerald was released. The MysticTicket was not distributed at this event. - The MysticTicket was distributed at PRA 2005 for FR/LG/E. I have never gotten a definite answer as to whether or not the AuroraTicket was distributed as well. A lot of sources I have looked at, including old forum archives discussing the event, have conflicting info. I need answers on the following: - I know that European copies of Emerald could receive the AuroraTicket during a particular time period by sending their cartridge to Nintendo. Was this ever done in the US? - Would it have been possible to send a US cartridge to Nintendo of Europe during this time period, and have them put the ticket there, or would there have been region locking issues, etc.? - Was the AuroraTicket ever distributed at PRA 2005, or at other events in the US after Emerald was released? I would appreciate any solid proof, such as pictures, video, etc. of whether or not an US Emerald AuroraTicket is legit or not.
  9. Oh, my bad, I was only looking at the English Gen V events. It looks like the only Gen V events that can either be shiny or not shiny are Japanese so far.

    PKM Conversion

    What save editor can create 3rd gen PKMs? I've never heard of one (then again my knowledge of 3rd gen hacking is very minimal).
  11. Which ones? The Event database doesn't appear to distinguish this.
  12. I'm fully aware that Mystery Gifts in Gen IV cannot be shiny unless they are programmed to be always shiny. Is this still true in Gen V? I've checked a number of sources and gotten some conflicting info, so I'd just like to get this clarified.
  13. Thanks! I see that the old PokeGen only supports creating pkm files, not actually editing save files. That's OK for my purposes.
  14. I know there was a link to something involving Gen III support (besides PokeGen) somewhere on this forum, but I searched for it (several times, both through the forum search and Google) and can't find it at all. Maybe the post/link was removed? It would help if I could remember what it was called...I think I last saw it like 5 years ago. (Funny how there's editing support for every generation except III. I and II have such simple data structures that Gameshark codes can do just about anything with no bad repercussions if you know what you're doing.)
