Pokemon Fire Red Shiny Cheat with Gameshark Code

It’s not easy to find shiny Pokemon in Fire Red, also in almost all versions of Pokemon, but with the help of cheats, you can encounter or catch shiny Pokemon.

Cheating in a game is meant just for extra fun, so enjoy it and have fun cheating Fire Red. You can then turn the cheat off if you want.

This Fire Red Shiny Pokemon Cheat code will turn all wild Pokemon into shiny. You can freely catch your desired shiny Pokemon as you want, but just a friendly warning; Don’t activate too many cheats at once, or your game may crash.

Bugs and Fixes

Gender and Nature Problem

The shiny cheat is a buggy cheat, and when using it, you will notice that the Pokemon has only one gender and, at the same time, the same nature. To fix this, you need to restart your game.

Update: We’ve made progress on the Pokemon gender and nature issue, using the new cheat code you can now assign a gender and nature of your Pokemon. See this guide here.

Glitchy Pokemon Name

Having a weird Pokemon name to a captured Pokemon is another common bug for the shiny cheat.

The fix for this problem is a lot easier, disable the cheat before catching the Pokemon or another method would be, giving a nickname to your Pokemon but leave it empty.

The mentioned code is fully functional for the Fire Red US v1.0 ROM. I haven’t had the chance to test it on a non-US Fire Red ROM yet. If you have tried it on a different version, please feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Yes it doesn’t work on Spanish, I just switched to Us Tom and it works, make a video or add something in this web because its so unfortunately for Spanish members as me, thanks for the codes, grate Web

    • Hello Kenneth, thank you for joining us. We primarily use English here as it is widely accessible, but we also welcome and appreciate it if someone shares cheats for the Spanish version.

  2. I keep having the same nature, and gender. I’ve restarted the emulator and the game itself many times, and it keeps being female serious pokemon. Fix?

    • Hey Piplupboi, I’m afraid you can’t change the essence of a shiny Pokemon. Although some players have suggested that rebooting the emulator several times could potentially do the trick, the success rate of this method might differ depending on the GBA emulator you’re using.

    • Unfortunately, when a shiny cheat is used, nature cannot be changed. Currently, there is no solution available for this issue.

  3. How can I change versions if I’m on ArkOS using a powkiddy? If I can’t change versions, is there any other shiny codes that aren’t for 1.0?

  4. The code for me doesn’t work. I’m using a gba emulator on my phone and I downloaded the game from vems romms. But no matter what code I use to help me get shiny starters or wild shiny Pokemon, it just doesn’t work.

  5. Hey, im using visual boy advance and i tried both of the codes but none of them worked. I clicked cheats, cheat list, gameshark, then added the name and the code then ran into bushes to find shinys but it didnt work. help?

    • After enabling the cheat, walk over to the grasses, and there you’ll encounter the shiny Pokemon. If it doesn’t work, perhaps you have the v1.1 FireRed rom version. Cheats work best only for V1.0. Hope this helps.

  6. It works, but the larger code only gives us Nature jolly, and the smaller code only gives Nature adamant, we need one for us to give a modest and a shy then it’s perfect lol

    • Hi Marcus, natures are generated randomly, try restarting your emulator, apply the cheat and see the next nature it generates. Let me know if it works for you.

    • I was not able to fix this issue by just restarting the emulator, but I was able to successfully generate a new nature by starting an entirely new game, and using the smaller of the two codes. If you use an emulator with a speed up function, it shouldn’t take too long to find a desirable nature, but you’ll be locked into that same nature for the duration of that game, and obviously lose any progress you’ve already made.

      • Hi there Catbarfsoup, thanks for coming here and sharing your experience with us. Yes, the restarting trick doesn’t work all of the time and that’s the big downside when using this cheat.

    • Just remove the cheat after capturing because if it doesn’t give this bug, like, you capture the pokémon later when you name it, remove the cheat and put his name.
      If the name is still buggy remove the cheat and go to the guy who changes the name of your pokémon in ruby/sapphire and emerald he is there in mauville
      In fire red and maybe leaf green it is in Lavender town in one of the houses.

  7. Bro first cheat works but not kind of i want i choose my starter and it’s shiny but the name is so strange just random name pops up on my starter please can it be fixed?

  8. [Tested]
    using with MyBoy, here ya go. Has name glitch but does not effect game play.
    Works great with mball in the shop for 0 and candy in the pc. I never use all 3 but have used 2 more than once. No master code needed for myboy

  9. nothing I try works at all. I’ve tried copy paste all codes.
    I’ve tried activating then restarting
    none of the codes
    even infinite candy doesn’t work

    • Using cheats is often very tricky, you need the right rom version and emulator to make them work. In your case, perhaps you have the v1.1 rom version. Find v1.0 or the squirrels version FireRed rom, these are the version that works with cheats.
