This is How JIGGLYPUFF Can Make Shinies COMMON In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl

This is How JIGGLYPUFF Can Make Shinies COMMON In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl
the generation 4

Pokemon

games

diamond

pearl

platinum HeartGold and SoulSilver have lots and I mean a lots of glitches you can ride your bike enter a void and catch mythical

Pokemon

you can beat the whole game with only two out of eight gym badges but

this

glitch that turns

Jigglypuff

into a shiny hunting monster

this

is on a whole different level I'm Mike polka tips Mike and today I'll be showing you the weird

Jigglypuff

glitch that

make

s

shinies

easy to find in the generation for

Pokemon

games to fully understand how

this

works in generation four first we're gonna have to take a quick look at the first generation three

Pokemon

games Ruby and Sapphire these games introduced a game mechanic called abilities which gave each and every

Pokemon

a special effect one of these abilities is called cute charm if a

Pokemon

with

this

ability was hit by a move that

make

s contact like tackle if you're pokémon and the

Pokemon

that attacked you have different genders there's a 30% chance that the attacking

Pokemon

can fall in love with you and become infatuated falling in love and battle is nice and all but overall the ability was kind of underwhelming so from

Pokemon

emerald onward they gave it an additional effect in addition to what I mentioned previously it now has an ability outside of battle if you have a

pokemon

with cute charm in your first party slots there will be a 66.7% chance that any wild

Pokemon

you encounter will have the opposite gender of your

Pokemon

...
this is how jigglypuff can make shinies common in pokemon diamond and pearl
with cute charm so for example if you have a male

Jigglypuff

in front of your party with the ability Q charm if you run into the grass and encounter a

Pokemon

that can have a gender it'll now have a 66.7% chance of being female because of

this

new secondary effect

this

make

s the ability cute charm pretty useful if you're looking for a

Pokemon

with a specific gender now back to generation 4 cute charm still has that special ability however the weight forces

Pokemon

to appear is slightly different in these games when you encounter a wild

pokemon

and the ability cute charm activates forcing it to be a specific gender it does that by modifying the wild

pokemon

s data call the personality value now the personality value is data the game uses behind the scenes to determine a lot of information about a

pokemon

such as its gender its ability and even its shininess normally when you encounter a wild

pokemon

the game generates one out of millions of different possible personality values and then assigns it to that

Pokemon

however when the ability cute charm activates for a wild

Pokemon

instead of generating millions of possible personality values it only generates 25 different personality values and then gives the wild

Pokemon

one of those what

make

s

this

really interesting is not only does it reduce the amount from millions to only 25 but these 25 personality values are the same every single time which

make

s them not so random anymore the reason there's only 25 different...
this is how jigglypuff can make shinies common in pokemon diamond and pearl
possible personality values is because there's one different one for each nature for example a value of zero would always give the hardy nature a value of one would always give it the lonely nature and two would give it the brave nature since the game gives these same exact personality values every single time we use Q charm it actually becomes pretty easy to exploit

this

and use it to find easy

shinies

but before I tell you why there's one more thing I need to explain like I mentioned before the personality value of a

pokemon

helps determine if it's shiny or not but there are also two more things that the game uses to determine if a wild

pokemon

will be shiny these are your trainer ID which you could easily see on your trainer card and another hidden ID called the secret ID which you normally can't see in game without cheating your trainer ID and secret ID give you one final hidden stats called a

Pokemon

shiny value so let's say for example your trainer ID was zero and your secret ID was also zero conveniently that would also give you the secret

Pokemon

shiny value of zero now at

this

point that means all you need to do is run into a wild

pokemon

that has the

Pokemon

shiny value of zero and boom you'll have a guaranteed shiny so how do all of these things come together and give you shiny

pokemon

well when cute charm activates it always gives wild

Pokemon

one out of twenty five different potential personality values if you know your trainer ID and...
this is how jigglypuff can make shinies common in pokemon diamond and pearl
secret ID by using a website like smug on you can figure out exactly which personality values will give you a shiny

pokemon

therefore by figuring out

this

information you can abuse

this

cute charm ability to give you insane odds of finding wild shiny

pokemon

this

is what is called the cute charm glitch and can be done with any

pokemon

that has the ability cute charm I like to use

Jigglypuff

because well it's

Jigglypuff

and you could catch

Jigglypuff

in all five generation four games now

this

glitch is crazy in the best-case scenario you'll have a twenty one point three four percent chance of finding shiny

pokemon

every time you step into grass obviously

this

will only work on wild pokémon that have genders and won't work on eggs you hatch and most legendary

Pokemon

except Heatran unfortunately unlike most glitches I cover on

this

channel not everyone can do

this

glitch because you need to have a very specific trainer ID and secret ID to get the right shiny value for

this

glitch to work so there are three ways to get

this

glitch to happen number one you could just be extremely lucky and have a game that works right away there is a small chance when you start the game that you'll have an ID that works with

this

however it's very unlikely even if you are lucky enough to have a same file that works right away you'll need to do a lot of testing to

make

sure there are lots of different personality values that we for male and female

Pokemon

so you'll...
need to test both option number two is making the game give you the right ID by using RNG manipulation by spending some time learning how to do

this

and using some tools on your computer you can get an ID that works properly without hacking your game at all RNG manipulation sounds complicated but if you take a few hours to learn it it can be very simple and if you're interested in learning how to do it I'll link a guide in the description and last but not least by far the easiest way to get

this

glitch to work is simply by hacking your game and changing your ID for example if you made both your trainer ID and secret ID into five zeros if you use a male

Pokemon

as your cute charmer you'll have a 21% chance of finding shiny

pokemon

every time again

this

is by far the easiest way but you are hacking the game to get it to happen again if you want to do the cute charm glitch without hacking check the description and I'll have a guide on how to do it there as well as IDs that you could use and if you're gonna be bad and use hacks to do it just set your trainer ID and secret ID to all zeros and use a male cute charm

Pokemon

and you'll be running into

shinies

in no time so now that you have a good understanding of what the cute charm glitch is and how it works I think it's time to show you how crazy

this

glitch is alive so I'm playing

pokemon

heartgold version right now and my

Jigglypuff

is all set up my trainer ID is all set up so we're gonna run...
into a few

Pokemon

and see how long it takes us to get a shiny now right now we're playing with about a 21% chance of encountering a shiny which is much much higher than the games base rates that one out of 8,000 is 92 chance we should definitely be running into some

shinies

pretty quickly right now and the crazy thing about

this

is there's only two other times in

Pokemon

games where you could actually get a better SHINee rates and there we go there's our first SHINee right there that greenish golden ish monix and also I know of that some of you are about to get triggered right now because I'm going to run away from

this

thing I know I just committed a sin and ran away from a shiny

pokemon

well trust me when you're playing with the cute charm glitch these things are like candy there's another one and

this

one actually looks kind of like candy that's funny the green and the pink golbat right here but like I'm saying when you're playing around with the cute charm glitch these things are extremely easy to find so if you run away from them it's no big deal you'll have another one maybe two minutes later alright encounter again and there we go there's another shiny onyx over here now

this

is actually a pretty good run I'm getting very lucky right now usually takes a little bit longer to find more

shinies

I feel like we found more shiny

pokemon

than regular

pokemon

at

this

point but usually you have about a one in five chance of...
encountering a shiny they just know I'm recording a video right now so they're giving me these crazy good shiny odds but yeah you could see doing

this

to your game can

make

it a lot of fun just imagine playing through a whole game like

this

with these increased shiny odds or just being able to catch all these shiny

pokemon

for your own personal collection and another cool thing about

this

look at that shiny donphan right there beautiful little elephant thing but anyway another very cool thing about

this

whole cute charm glitch is that all of these

pokemon

that you find that are shiny can be transferred up to the newest games with no problem because you're not using any hacks or anything to

make

these

pokemon

appear

this

is all just a glitch within the game so if you do

this

and you want to transfer your

Pokemon

up to the latest and greatest

Pokemon

games you can with absolutely no problem at all and with that my friends you now have a pretty good understanding of one of the weirdest but best glitches in all of

Pokemon

the cute charm glitch if you enjoyed watching
