How do I use this tool?

Simply choose the Pokémon you are shiny hunting and the level it gets obtained at and the tool will display a table of possible stats it could have as a shiny. If your Pokémon's summary screen matches any of the displayed stats, click the X button above that spread in the table. A new selection of stat spreads will appear along with what level your Pokémon needs to be next. Level your Pokémon to the specified level with Rare Candies (not battling, that will give you stat experience and ruin the math!) and check for a match. Keep doing this until the word SHINY appears in the bottom right of the tool, in which case the tool is sure your Pokémon is shiny if it has the displayed stats! Sometimes the tool can tell your Pokémon is shiny immediately from the level you obtained it at, in which case no leveling is needed and the "needed level" number will not change. You can press the BACK button at any time to go back to the beginning at your Pokémon's default level.

The option to display a list of ACE (Arbitrary Code Execution) instructions for the Fossil Conversion Glitch will appear below the tool after you select a Pokémon. The instructions will automatically have values specific to your Pokémon of choice plugged in, making them easier to follow and execute. Since the instructions are long, you can hide them again with the click of a button.

All of the glitch Johto Pokémon have their stats from Red/Blue listed even though some of them are different in Yellow. These Pokémon are much harder to obtain in Yellow, and the Fossil Conversion instructions on this page are for Red/Blue only, so this isn't super relevant here. Yellow compatibility may come at a later date for those crazy enough to figure out how to obtain and shiny hunt those within Yellow.

Glossary of terms and values:

Want to use this tool in stream/recording layouts?

You are always free to use this tool in your shiny hunting stream/recording layouts! It would be cool for Classic Pokémon Guide to be credited somewhere on the stream or video if possible, but definitely not necessary. Please do as you see fit. Thank you for the interest! I'm only including this section because I had been asked about this a couple times. It's very flattering.

Found a bug in the tool?

This shiny hunting tool was bug tested to the best of my ability, but I still may have missed something obscure. If you find a bug, please report it here so I can take a look at it. Thank you!
