Exploit lets you easily duplicate Shinys right now


More shinies for your team.

When a new Pokemon game comes out, it doesn’t take long for early gamers to begin their hunt for the Shiny. Fans even discovered an exploit for Crimson and Crimson, with which you can catch Shinys as often as you want. But you better be quick.

Save in the right place

This is how it’s done: In order to use the exploit explained by YouTuber Austin John Plays, you must first go near a location that you can enter without a loading screen, such as the town of Bolardin. Then it gets a bit more difficult, as you now have to find a nearby Shiny Pokemon that you can then use the hint to catch again and again.

If you’ve spotted a Shiny, all you have to do is catch it as normal. Once you’ve done that, run to the nearby location and save your game when you see the location name. Then quit the game and restart it. If you now return to where you grabbed the Shiny, it should be there again and you can grab it again.

It looks like you can currently repeat this procedure as often as you want and fill your entire team with Shinys. Either way, it’s important that you don’t save in the desert, but enter the location and save your game there. After restarting, the game appears to launch the same Pokemon into your world again.

The reason this cheat works is probably because the game only loads new wild Pokemon when you leave a location with a loading screen. But since you save here beforehand, the game will always remember the Shiny, even if you’ve already caught it.
