>game locks fun side-content behind pure RNG

why the FUCK is this alloud?

Never once managed to get this island to spawn, and Ruby was my most played Pokemon game by an astoundingly wide margin.
Just fuck my shit up.

>1/10923 chance of appearing even if you have a full Pokemon party.
JUST RNG MY SHIT UP
>>
Ive gotten to that island every single play-through. i had no idea it was hard (rng) to do.
>>
>>33279741
there's nothing on it but some kelpsy berries and wynaut.
Stop cryin
>>
>>33279741
So you would hopefully cry about it one day?
>>
>>33279742
Same but for me it was Sapphire.
But honestly, besides the berry there was nothing that interesting on the island.
>>
>>33279741
>Alloud
>>
Gen III in general has so much shit that was either event-only, Japan-only or flat out never got released.
It's such a cocktease region.
>>
>>33279741
To give the game a sense of mystery. Any maybe to make kids question reality when no one else has seen the thing.
>>
>Need to learn Braille to get legendaries

Gen 3 was a strange gen
>>
>>33279751
fun though
>>
>>33279751
That was pretty cool though and it had a codec in the manual.
The thing with having a Wailord in your first party spot and a Relicanth in the last to open the regi caves still sounds like some stupid playground rumor though.
>>
>>33279741
I miss old Pokemon, and I don't even hate the new designs like everyone else, I like them. It's everything else that ruined it for me, it's just not the same anymore.
>>
>the only way to get Jirachi for the longest time

>>33279741
At least that game had fun side content.

as far as game lore/canon goes, why specifically wailord and relicanth? what the hell's so special about them?
>>
>tfw you'll never capture Mew under the bus

>>33279741
>tfw I got it once in 2005

It's not really worth it
>>
I just realized that Mirage Island wasn't in ORAS.

Jesus, that is another thing they did not include.
>>
>>33279757
Wailord is the biggest Pokemon up until Gen 3 IIRC and Relicanth is a fossil Pokemon so supposedly he has some mystical powers or some shit.
>>
>>33279757
I'm guessing Relicanth because it's a living fossil and probably was around when the regis still roamed the region.
No idea why Wailord though.
>>
>>33279760
It's a good thing though, they know people got pissed about it and it wasn't even worth to find it anyway.
>>
Why did Gen III have all this lore feeling? I remember there's a cave in Hoenn up from your home town and to the east that didn't really serve a purpose, but as a kid I always wondered what it was about. I don't remember the name of it unfortunately, but anyone know what I'm talking about?
>>
>>33279755
In the US.
If you had a pal system you had to buy Pokemon Channel and play through it completely to get Jirachi.
Which was actually much more fun than it had any rights to be.
>>
>>33279762
>>33279761
is there a reason why the regis were banished to their caves?
>>
>>33279757
Gen 3 really loved water. Like it's not even a meme, it's fucking everywhere.

Dive was still the coolest shit
>>
>>33279755
>>33279765
Or you can use GameShark.
>>
>>33279760
But it is. Multiple islands in fact. Its just they have a higher chance to spawn and you can only access them by soaring with Latios/Latias.
>>
>>33279749

never really played the game but fascinating system in it like transfering over pokemon through multiple games

how does that all work, is there a good youtube vid explaining how all pokemons work and link together or how event data is handled?
>>
>>33279764
In emerald? It let's you get normally unattainable pokemon via Nintendo events.
>>
>>33279765
only if you live in europe or australia

i bought pokemon channel solely for jirachi and as an american i was disappointed that i couldnt get it
>>
>>33279764
there aren't any caves in route 101
>>
>>33279764
https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Altering_Cave
>>
>>33279767
No shit, the Hoenn region is based off of Kyushu, which is basically an island in Japan.
>>
>>33279768
Faggot
>>
>>33279764
If you mean the one that's right next to the river, that actually had a function in Japan.
If you connected your cart with a Nintendo device at an event you could unlock special Pokemon that would appear in that cave.
>>
>>33279742
I accidently came across it while surfing and had no idea it was actually some island that rarely appears.

>Every day, two randomized bytes are generated by the game. If these bytes match the last two bytes of the personality value of any Pokémon in the player's party, Mirage Island will appear for that day as long as the matching Pokemon remains in the party. The bytes are generated once any button is pressed on the start menu and will last until the start menu is accessed again past 00:00 (midnight) of the next day. Even though play time has nothing to do with the real-time clock, a game that has reached the maximum time of play (999 hours and 59 minutes) will not generate Mirage Island numbers anymore—instead, the Mirage Island number will always be zero. Likewise, if a game is started while the internal battery is dead, the Mirage Island Bytes will be set to 0. However, if the game's real-time clock is not functioning (the internal battery has died) at any point before time of play reaches 999 hours 59 minutes, then the Mirage Island number will permanently stay at what value it was before.
come on that's just mean, I'm not sure if it's more mean or less mean if the stuff found there is shit, I didn't play past RBYG so I wouldn't really know
>>
>>33279767
Still makes no sense that you had to use a Pokemon to dive which then allowed you to breathe underwater for whatever reason.
Gen V had a realistic, although super annoying dive mechanic.
>>
>>33279741
I love gen3, it had as much bullshit that was either true or false as gen 1

>okay to catch the regis you need to in a cave and read some stuff with Relicanth as your first o Wailord as your last pokemon, UNLESS it's the third version, which is reversed. Afterwards caves all around the world will open
>for rock you spin around the walls of the cave and use rock smash
>for steel you have to go to the middle of the cave and use fly

>THERE is a mystery island, you just have to talk to the old man and he will let you go in it.

>you can take the rocket in mossdeep and go to space to catch deoxys

So much bullshit. ORAS gets even better with some of them.
>having to rename your regice to catch regigigas
>>
>>33279776
Nah, fuck these stupid things that require you to do something else to unlock Pokemon, all content should be unlockable in game, I used GameShark to get Deoxys aswell.

>>
>>33279766
The braille in the Sealed Chamber mentions a Pokemon, and how "We sealed it away. We feared it.", or something like that. The context seemed singular though, so it's possibly talking about Regigigas. The trio is the key to reviving Regigigas, so that could have been why they sealed them away.

Relicanth has a map to the sealed chamber on its side. Seriously, look at it.
Wailord's just Wailord though.

If Pokemon ever gets fusions I really hope you'll be able to fuse all the regis with Regigigas to get a giant mecha that doesn't have a super shit ability.

>>33279788
Looking up rewards for collectables is the one thing I'll allow myself. I'm not trying to spend hours scouring for anything if all you're gonna give me is some shit ass potions.

Oh shit yeah, somebody once showed me that and that fucking blew my mind as a kid.
Gen III really had the best lore.
>>
>>33279794
You were limited to only dive in very specific parts and it was either bound to steps or a timer until it forced you to go to the surface again.
It didn't exactly help that one of the biggest dungeons to explore in the entire region was underwater.
>>
>>33279757
The animals Relicanth and Wailord are based off of are kind of evolutionary inverses of each other. Coelacanths were famously thought represent the link between aquatic life and the first terrestrial lifeforms. Whales, on the other hand, are the reverse-- terrestrial life returning to aquatic life. But what the hell that has to do with the Regis, who knows?
>>
>>33279801
The regis' represent elements, like most legendaries do in Ruby.

Was anyone else really annoyed at how they made May so flat in the remake? She used to be a ten year old with C cups.

How does a Pearl evolve into a fish? Even by Pokemon evolution standards it's weird.

>>
>>33279809
The public's mindset has changed due to being so used to instant gratification
Anything that takes time is seen as an inconvenience. Create an unlockable character and it's seen as artificial difficulty that content is arbitrarily locked away when the user already paid for the game.

>>1 (Dead)
N-no
>>
>>33279757
The ruins were created and guarded by the people of the sea, so it makes sense that they would ask for water pokémon.
Wailord is the biggest, and relicanth is the oldest, so both of them could be worshipped as important water pokémon.
>>
>>33279812
The mindset exists becuase of DLC and microtransactions. A lot of gamers are used to being able to pay away any progress wall they hit.
>>
>>33279764
And what about all these bits of unfinished lore in the sevii islands?
I really enjoyed exploring them, it was so eerie...

Yeah its always been cool imo to drag your favorite guys with you. Diamond and pearl gen had a cool system where you transferred pokemon from the gba game slottes into the bottom of the ds into an area where you had to go and catch them

Sevii Islands were so weird. they got more cryptic and abstract as you went along to the point where the final island was just this tiny triangle with Deoxys you could only access through events.

I hated how impossible the Battle Tower in Ruby and Sapphire was, though. It's littlay impossible to beat 100 in a row. I used both of those legendary birds and the quadrupedal metal thing. Still couldn't do it.

>>33279821
Legendaries aren't necessarily good. Though yeah, getting long winstreaks can be pretty hard. Sometimes you just get screwed over by bad luck with nothing you can do, and if you're trying to get 100 wins in a row that's a lot of chances to be screwed.
>>
>>33279826
Going after Febass was insane because it feels like you encounter him a million times before you actually want to catch him, then suddenly he's impossible to find.

You instead have Mirage areas you can access by riding Latias/Latios and find more from fulfilling certain criteria.

They might actually be telling the truth. I've gotten Pokérus by the second Gym (or Gym-like thing in the case of Alola) in every save file since my first Emerald save file (and in Emerald I always have it by the time I reached Rustboro, by the way).

I've never seen the island either in at least 12,000 hours spent playing Emerald after nearly 2000 in Ruby and Sapphire, but considering my experience, and taking into account Pokérus is about twice as rare at 1 in ~21,845 it wouldn't surprise me if they were the me counterpart for the island.

>tfw you checked every day for over a year and never saw it.

If you use the SpotPass feature any Passerby people on PSS that got the island will automatically send it to you. That's one of the reasons that PSS is loved.

Plot twist: It spawns and there's nothing on it.

>Whenever "Mirage Island Bytes" are generated, they will not change within the time they are valid, and the player is able to freely move Pokémon from the boxes to the party or vice-versa until a Pokémon that has a matching personality value to the "Mirage Island Bytes" is found and the Mirage Island appears.

You can just keep swapping your party out to heavily increase that probability. If you have 60 Pokemon in your boxes, the probability is 1/1000.

that event was accessible without the item, I remember doing it with the MICHINA Arceus back in 2010

>>33281650
Yeah, all event Arceus had the flag to activate it. The first American Arceus distribution even had promo pamplets specifically talking about this event and exactly how you activated it.
>>
>>33279786
Nigga I've seen three shinies, had Pokerus maybe ten times, and STILL have never seen Mirage Island in my original Emerald.
>>
>>33279829
It's possible to get Arceus by tweaking in Diamond/Pearl.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrhHXG3cuAw
You can also get a Hall of Origin Arceus through this method to trigger the event, but the steps to do so are different and I don't have a link to it.

And don't forget that it was also supposed to hold a Casteliacone or a Nevermelt Ice.

>>33279757
I figured it was to make sure you had things in your party that could learn the prerequisite hm/tms to get there/in.

I assume relicanth can learn dig.

Heaven help you if you used the tm then lost the move because the only other source of dig is getting a trapinch to lvl40.
>>
>>33282229
Apparently if you level the Hall of Origin ones up to level 100 they do. I haven't tried it yet though.
>>
>>33279743
Wow, I never realised it was that rare, I got it once. They should have made it that if the clock died, the island would appear after you beat the elite four.
>>
>>33279781
Best part was they made the Mossdeep space center one true in ORAS

That's like if FRLG actually had a mew under the truck if you used strength on it.

THEN LET THEM DO MONHUN STYLE FREE DLC RELEASES. It keeps people interested in your game for longer when they have new content to explore. Definitely more so than handout mystery gifts.

I mean, we got kyurem.

Same concept really. Though they could go card game route by having it take up multiple party slots. About the only idea they haven't copied from the card game now. Break evolution is another I guess, but I have a feeling that might be what synchro is.

It's interesting probably due to the concept of it existing yet not being able to access it, but once you get there it's fairly disappointing. All you do is get the berry and leave. The Wynaut doesn't even say captured on Mirage Island, it's location is whatever water route it is on.
>>

Kids aren't retarded. Looking up a braille chart, knowing you can check that dude for a mystery island once a day, and finding feebas aren't that difficult. Especially not if you have huge amounts of free time, and a bunch of kids communicating and saying what works and what doesn't.

Iirc, no Aurora Ticket was distributed for Emerald, and the rom was programmed before Emerald came out anyway.

Of course, those discs are common and the iso has been online forever

>Volcanion has someone in XY who tells you more about it
>Magearna can be obtained through a QR Code from the Hau'oli Mall in SM

What about Jirachi? It unlocks a Pokéwalker course I guess, but has a Jirachi ever had any in-game effect in the actual games or a guaranteed appearance through Japanese means (ie. not the US Colosseum bonus disc or PAL Channel bonus disc)?
>>
>>33279741
So that ORAS could fix it with a much better system.

Unless you just want to transfer over a single team or something, it's way more tedious than it is cool.

>>33279791
Jirachi was just a preorder bonus for Colosseum.
>>
>>33282852
In Alpha Sapphire there is a photo in Aqua Base showing a time Archie and Shelly met it as children. There's also an implication after shit goes screwy with Kyogre that somehow Archie's desire to "bring things back to the beginning" are so he can meet "that Pokemon" again. That's the best you'll get.
>>
>>33282926
I always found it odd they only connected Team Aqua with Jirachi in AS, but not with Team Magma in OR. I'm sure there's a lore reason, but I couldn't figure out any connection significance.
>>
>>33282808
Why not just replace the battery?
>>
>>33282987
Because I was a young'un and didn't know that was possible.
>>
>>33282803
The Aura Mew cart is owned by a private collector who doesn't want to devalue his own item, so we're probably not going to get it unless it changes hands again.
>>
>>33282960
It might be an Adventures reference. He became Guile Hideout in the Emerald part and went out looking for a Jirachi for some reason, I forget what it was and I'm too lazy to look it up.
>>
>>33279818
Shinies are cool, completely optional and solely aesthetic.
>>
>>33283095
He went looking for Jirachi to complete his plan of flooding the world, which was previously ruined. He wished for a water monster in the image of Kyogre. He also wanted to find Manaphy, though the reason for that was never explained.
>>
>>3328323
Probably because Manaphy under Gen IV/V Drizzle is fucking insane.

Of course. He came on sometimes, though rarely.

Ditto.
>>
>>33279842
I think that says "du", they need a certain character beforehand to make "d" into "4", and then another to make "u" into "U".
Different converters gave me different results but this one seems correct to me since another one had the character that makes it stop reading as numbers, but neither "u" or the capital character can be read as a number as far as I know.
I spent half an hour learning basic braille so I might as well put it to some use
>>
>>33281510
so, if I start today to check the island bytes 10 times daily with 60 different pokemon, that raises the odds to 3 years just to get a wynaut & a liechi berry, horray!

If you replace the battery, the battery clock resets and it takes a few years for it to catch up with the save file clock, if you plant any berries they won't grow up after a few years, unless you replace the battery and start a new game with a new clock.
>>
>>33282335
I did on almost every playthrough.

>>33284814
If you check the TV in RSE, from time to time it will broadcast the arrival of the Berry Master in Lilycove, who blends some of the highest ranking pokeblocks possible. He's only around for two days though, so you really have to prepare for him.
