# How do you get a Shiny Rayquaza?

#### How do you get a Shiny Rayquaza?

How do you get a shiny rayquaza without using an action replay, gameshark, or trading?

Comment:(Jul 25 2009) Thanks to anyone who answers.

Comment:(Jul 25 2009) Can you get a Shiny Kyogre the same way?

Its really hard to catch a shiny one legit.Save in front of the Rayquaza and battle the Rayquaza,if it's not shiny,turn your game off then turn it back on and battle it again.This will take a long time since there's like a 7% of wild shiny encounter.It works so don't give up when you think it's hopeless.Maybe around 500 hundred tries or so?Who knows,you just need luck.Hoped I helped.

CAN I HAVE YOUR SHINY RAYQUAZA?

its way less then 7% chance to find a shiny pokemon its less then 1% so it can take over 1000 tries some times

The chance of any particular pokemon encounter being shiny is 1 in 8,192. Even if you've reset and battled Rayquaza 8,191 times before, the chance that the next time will be shiny is still 1 in 8,192.

Actually that is not true. it is a probability and probability alone. And as the quote goes, Chance has no memory. That probability is simply what it is: a probability.

That's something commonly known as the Gambler's Fallacy. The chance of failing 8193 times in a row might be low, but if you HAVE already failed 8192 times, there is still a 1/8192 chance of a shiny. If you flip a coin ten times and get 9 heads, you still have a 1/2 chance of heads because you have already flipped 9.

Well, purely mathematically speaking, there's around a 19.5% chance that you still haven't found a Shiny Rayquaza after 8192 tries. It's simply doing the reverse of the chance to find one )not finding one, thus around 0.9998) and elevate it's power to the number of times you repeat the test. After 10 000 tries there still is around a 13.5% chance that you haven't found it yet

The reason why it is given a probability is because it will even out to that amount eventually. So even though you aren't guaranteed a shiny after 8193 tries, you will most likely get one soon. I'm a statistics major. Just giving my input.

The person who answered first made me excited to catch a shiny rayquaza but now the others ruined it!!Thanks alot>:(!! I'm still going to try to atempt to catch a shiny rayquaza!!one day I will show all of you that it's going to happen to me!!ONE DAY!!!!!!!

Sometimes it comes faster than you think because in my other game I found a shiny before I even got a badge.=P I wasn't even looking! so it might take less than 500 tries for rayquaza.^u^'

The first time I saw Raquaza I caught a shiny

The first answer is right like me I caught a shiny raquaza

Started over about 2000 times and finally ....... Didnt get him

Put it this way, It took me weeks of soft resets to get my shiny ho-oh, it took take so long. So be prepared to be patient.
