To my knowledge, datamining has proven that Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza/Deoxys are shiny locked while everything else is not (I mean, why would these 4 not be shiny locked given previous trends). I don't have a direct source of this unfortunately but this would be the safest assumption regardless.
Where did you hear of this with the datamining? I havent been able to find such a thing.
Apparently one of the people who datamined said something about it, but I can't find anything that outright proves it to be the case. Everything points to them being shiny locked though.
So it is the former because it's not an in-game battle pick (which, you would think a legit one would have been posted by now)!
It could be legit, but I'm hesitant to buy it. Pretty much every SR'ed mirage pokemon has been found so far, and has battle pics or something. Yet, not a single battle pic for Kyogre or Groudon, nothing at all on Rayquaza, and only one potential pic on Deoxys.
Pokebeach posted a story about them last December, but I think players first discovered them even earlier by finding their names as trade options on the GTS.Was it not possible to datamine certain things for X and Y? Besides Diancie, have the other two event Pokemon Hoopa and Volcanion been released? Were they not common knowledge until recently?
Wondering if anyone else is having a problem with Uxie and Mespirit appearing. I caught Azelf using the method described in Serebii's game guide, went back 12 hours later with the same method, nothing. Tried putting Azelf in party, nothing. Nameless Cave still appears, but no Uxie or Mespirit. That was 4 days ago now, been checking back often at all hours with various very happy pokemon in my party, cave appears, no dice. Read around on other places around the web and it seems like its not just me, just wondering if anyone else is having an issue?
I don't think we should be assuming shiny lock just yet. There are a few factors to consider. First, that the cover legends have really long cutscenes before the battles, and unless they're saved for post-E4, there's no shiny charm to boost the odds. Second, it's entirely possible that mirage spot legends have higher shininess odds. And even if they don't, they seem much more efficient to SR.
Granted, the Latis have been found shiny, but isn't the fact that they're available odd? After all, they're found in cutscenes.
Call it blind optimism, but I wanna stay hopeful until we get confirmation either way. I also don't think running away will work in this case, so when I get to Groudon, I may just SR it. Will let you guys now if I have any luck.
Ok, so I was at a mirage spot and Virizion was there. I was trying to get a good nature, so I kept turning the game off after catching it without saving and then turning it back on. It dawned on me that it was night and I should get Dusk Balls, so I did that and went back. But this time, it was Cobalion who appeared. So does the legendary change every 12 hours even without catching or beating one? Or did I lose my chance to get Virizion?
I'm new to this site, so sorry if this is the wrong place to put it, but I'm having trouble catching Regigas. I have all 3 Regis in my party, A nicknamed Regice holding a CasteliaCone, but he won't show up. Help please.
