Trying to catch Shiny Entei

Not open for further replies.

Hey there guys,
I'm playing through pokemon crystal and attempting to catch Shiny Entei. I've been at it for three or so months and still no luck. I'm using an emulator to play on my computer (VBA). Of course I've been soft resetting after each encounter. My question is could I use the save state feature by saving before the encounter and keep loading it if it isn't a Shiny. I've caught normal Entei a few times and noticed that each one had different HP ranging from 146-150 and I'm thinking that this could relate to each new encounter having different DV's. Can someone tell me if it is possible to Shiny hunt using the save and load state on the emulator?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
