Do you dig Pokemon video games but get stumped on how to catch some really rare Pokemon like Mew, Deoxys or others? Well, that's what Cheat Street is for! Right now, Kidzworld member Alex12boy about Shiny Pokemon in the Pokemon Emerald video game so here's the 411 on them and how to catch 'em!

Dear Gary,

My friend is a good trainer and he has nine Shiny Pokemon and is starting to get annoying. Could you please tell me how to get one easily in Pokemon Emerald?

Catching Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Emerald

Just so you know, a Shiny Pokemon is just like any other Pokemon. The difference is that a Shiny Pokemon is a different color and sparkles at the start of combat. The problem with catching Shiny Pokemon is that there's no trick to it, they just show up randomly. Each time you battle a wild Pokemon, there's a 1-in-8,192 chance that it will be a Shiny Pokemon. So, if you want to catch one, battle lots of wild Pokemon and keep your fingers crossed!

Catching Rare Pokemon

This is for everybody who's trying to catch these super-rare Pokemon!
  • Deoxys
  • Mew
  • Celebi
  • Ho-oh
  • Lugia
  • To catch these Pokemon, you need a special item that you can only get from a Nintendo special event, or with a Gameshark or Action Replay. So, to all the peeps who requests like this, "How do we get the Old Sea Chart in Pokemon Emerald without a cheat device like Gameshark or Action Replay and without a Nintendo event? Help." - You can't.

    It's kinda like getting to the moon without a spaceship, you just can't do it. Don't give up though! Comic-Con 2005 gave you a chance to get Ho-oh or Lugia and the Pokemon Rocks America 2005 tour is starting soon and will be visiting a bunch of cities to give Pokemon Trainers a chance to get these special Pokemon. We'll have more info on it next week in Game News!
