Pokémon HGSS Action Replay Shiny Cheat

Shiny Cheat

EDIT: Before you ask me to help because this doesn't work or whatever problem you're having, please don't. I do not have access to an Action Replay anymore, I simply cannot help you beyond what I provide here. I find that usually when someone has a problem with this, it's because they missed a tiny little mistake they made when putting it in. I know it's a pain, but if you just can't seem to get this to work, go through every little bit of it and make sure it's exactly as I have written. If you've triple-checked (and not just skimmed!) and it still doesn't work, I'm sorry, I have nothing more to offer. I've done my best. I had hoped to keep my post as close to how it was originally, with just a little note added saying I couldn't help anymore, but I guess a bunch of people just happened to overlook it, so I finally went through my post and took out anything saying I would help them at all if this didn't work. I left the poll alone, however, since changing it would reset the whole thing. This does not mean you should ask me for help (obviously, that's the whole point of this edit). I'm sorry, I really am, but I can't do any more than what I've written here anymore.

Okay, I've seen a lot of people asking about the Action Replay shiny cheat for Heart Gold and Soul Silver, saying that nothing they've tried works. A friend of mine had an Action Replay, and they couldn't get anything to work either. They let me try, and I got it to work on my first try. I figured I might as well share what I did. Now, this may look familiar to some of you, but I promise I tried it and it does work. (Note that I'm using the US version.)

Okay, now like most Action Replay cheats, I pressed L+R to activate it after I loaded the game. What I did that some people probably didn't, however, was go into the trainer card and press R+A. I remembered doing that for Pearl, so I figured, why not? I went into the nearest grass, and the first pokémon I found was a wonderful shiny Gloom. I handed it off to my friend, and it's still working just fine. (By the way, in Pearl you used to have to go into the trainer card and press L+A to deactivate it, if you don't want to just turn the code off normally. I figure it probably works here too, but I haven't tried it.)

Oh, and if it doesn't work, first make sure this is the only code you're using and see if that helps.

I hope this helps all of you frustrated shiny-seekers!

How many codes do you have going at once?


Guy 6 years ago

Is it supposed to work on legendaries? Because I did everything this says but rayquaza is still green.

I never tried it on legendaries, but since it's supposed to work on wild pokémon, my guess would be no.


Lal 6 years ago

I'd like to note that there is no line of code for it to be "activated" so i do not believe you need to press "L+R" or anything.

Are you absolutely sure everything was entered exactly as I put it, and you don't have a bunch of other codes active?


Turtleman56 6 years ago

Worse doughnut 6 years ago

it worked perfectly on my game plus i had 2 other cheats on, "100% catch rate" and "walk everywhere", thanx man all the other ones i tried failed. u rock

Worse doughnut, I'm glad to hear it. Now, as for those asking for help, I did say that I would not be able to. You see, I no longer have access to an Action Replay, and have no other means of providing aid. I wasn't very familiar with this sort of thing in the first place, I was just called upon by a friend who had an Action Replay and this same problem. I'm very sorry, I really would love to help, but I simply cannot.

Gahh the people that cant get it to work are either using Desmume like me and ive been searching EVRYWHERE for a code like this :\ too bad i remember seeing this on a japanese post and worse it still wont even let me enter the damn trainer card thing please help v_v

Waning Light 6 years ago Author

People still ask for my help? Yeesh... I actually never heard of DeSmuME until just a couple minutes ago when I read your comment and looked it up. Obviously I'm not familiar enough with it to know what particular problem (and therefore solution) you're having.


ryanw2ooo 6 years ago

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I Caught My Rayquaza Shiny. :)

person 5 years ago

This is soooo awesome!!! I put it in and it did freeze up when I ran into a pokémon. I checked the code again like you said and I put a E where I was supposed to put an F. Once that was fixed I tried again and it works perfect even with the 100% catch rate. Thanks so much!!!!


renji 5 years ago

Austin 5 years ago

Hey, my game is not freezing, but they don't show up shiny

Waning Light 5 years ago Author

Frankly, renji, I don't need to do anything, least of all fix your problem. Normally I would anyway, but as I have already stated... I. DO. NOT. HAVE. ACCESS. TO. ACTION. REPLAY. ANYMORE. I didn't lie, I really did personally get it to work perfectly. Obviously others were able to use it as well. However, for future reference, I'd like to point out that if you want help from someone, it's probably not a good idea to start yelling at them and talking to them like they're an idiot. Just a thought.


BriiEE 5 years ago

Heey just a question, i brought an action replay BUTT!!! it only comes up with pokémon cheats, (which i cant use cause i hav an R4 wich doesn't take those cheats) so how did you wright in manually the code for the shinny pokémon??

Hamji 3 years ago

Hey, do you know how to turn this off? I wanted only one shiny, but now that i have it, i cant turn it off..... :(


Waning Light 3 years ago

Is L+A not working? It's been a long time since I had an action replay, but I think at the very least going into the trainer card and pressing L+A with the code active should turn it off.


cool dude 2 years ago

ok dude i tried your code but no matter what my 3ds keeps freezing it is the only code on but when i get in the grass it just freezes
