Pokemon Fire Red Shiny Pokemon Cheat with Gameshark Code


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

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.

If the cheat codes above don’t work on your ROM, you can give this alternative cheat code a try

The code above fully works for Fire Red US v1.0 ROM; I haven’t tested this on NonUS Fire Red ROM. Feel free to comment if you have tested this on another version.

See the cheat in action; I created a video for Fire Red Shiny Pokemon Cheat video here.


  1. At first it worked as I used it to get a shiny Gible then I disabled it and then later on I enabled it to get a shiny ralts it didn’t work I tried erasing the other codes and re-coding it again but I still didn’t work.

  2. The shiny code kinda works but everytime i catch a pokemon it’s always a female and it’s nature the same. I also reset the game so it’s nature or gender changes but nope dosen’t work and went reaches level 10 it disobeys me.It’s is it because i’m using the squrriel ver, the Ver(USA) R1.0 i play used the code but all the pokemon are males and the nature smae

  3. Please erase this comment and consider this one alone.
    when I didn’t see the first comment appear I assumed it didn’t go through but saw that it did when I submitted this second one.

  4. I’ve just started the ROM Pokemon Stigma which is platformed on Fire Red and have tried both codes offered here to get a shiny starter.

    – The first one works but gives me a shiny Nidorino rather than the Gible I chose which doesn’t make sense even considering that under my circumstances it’s standing in for another Pokemon. It’s profile lists it as #039 but #39 is Jigglypuff.

    – The second does give me a shiny Gible but:
    1. It’s exclusively female and bashful nature. I reset the game at least 5 times and this didn’t change. That’s not normal.
    2. It also gave my rival a shiny starter (Magby).
    3. The shiny Gible doesn’t have the correct sprite. It appears to be an inverted colored normal sprite while Nidorino and Magby both have their correct shiny sprites.
    I’m not sure if the code caused this or not but it’s not right.

    • Hi there Anne, since you are playing a rom hack, most likely there are irregularities since most of these rom hacks are not complete unless you have the original FireRed game.

  5. hi I used your code and my game is now messed up…the shiny cheat works but it doesn’t want to turn the hell off now even when disabled cheats is on and I remove them and when I have them unclick and when I have zero cheats in my list..no cheats are even on my cheat list yet every pokemon I encounter I get shinies even during battles and the worst part is when a catch them I can’t give them moves or look at them thur summary..otherwise I get the pink screen of death and my game freezes and crash not only that but this glitch effected all my save states and will not turn off. It’s very annoying and when I try to use a shiny pokemon for battle it freezes or says my pokemon has no moves and uses struggle the entire time. How do I fix this shiny pokemon glitch/bug.

  6. The first code worked just fine for me. The only two exceptions are:
    1. ALL the shiny’s are the same nature
    2. ALL disobey after lvl 10
    My question is, has anyone had this issue and will the alt code do the same?
    I am using Fire Red V1.0

  7. It always amazes me how people don’t do their research before wanting to hack a game. I feel sorry for you having to repeat yourself telling everyone to use the 1.0 version. I almost feel your regret of creating this awesome website. Thanks for everything. It’s made my game great.

    • Thank you for dropping here Finny. Honestly, sometimes I get tired answering these the same questions. But just to help these guys, I answer them anyway and provide additional information hopefully to give them a direct answer to their problem. Yup, it’s hard sometimes but I’m trying to make Pokemoncoders as useful as possible. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I really appreciate it.

  8. Well I’ve found out that the shiny cheats work on fire red v1. So happens that I’ve also tried to start a new game after I see all male shinies. To my surprise, the gender of shinies depends on your gender as a trainer. Before I use a male trainer. After I restart a new game I use a female trainer. Then there it goes, all female shinies.

  9. So my ROM version is Pokemon Fire red (U) v1. 1 and I used the codes, I didn’t get a shiny new two as I expected, but I did surprisingly get a bad egg. Is that normal?

      • IK you need the v1. 0 to make it work but I was just wondering if the bad egg thing was normal? I don’t expect a reply so don’t waste your time the reply above would imply that it is normal, thanks for being chill! I’ll make sure I download proper Roms next time to use your cheats. 🙂

        • Bad eggs are not that harmful to your game but it is annoying, you can’t delete nor get rid of it. In most cases, bad eggs are results of cheating and will appear when a cheat is not compatible with the rom version. To answer your question, no it’s not normal, but you can still play and enjoy your game even you have it.

  10. How do I enter the code into my gameshark? I always end up with too many 0s in the code or too many 0s at the end of the code I’m actually playing on a gba sp

  11. It made all pokemon I caught ” traded ” so it was very difficult to okay the game as they kept going to sleep. And then it just erased the save file at random quite a few times. The cheat works… But just be careful to catch what you want to be shiny

  12. The code works, but all Pokémon encountered using this cheat are Sassy Nature. Is there a possible way to make the Natures of Shiny Pokémon random?

    • In the 3rd gen games all shiny encounters will be the same nature per run through. If you want to encounter a shiny with a different nature you have to start a new game.

    • Use the correct FireRed version which is the V1.0 or the Squirrels version. Also, use My Boy for Android as this emulator fully supports GameShark cheat codes.

    • If you have the free version of My Boy, you just have to copy the codes and remove the lines to make the cheats single line. It’ll work the same as with the premium My Boy doing that.

  13. I also noticed all the shiny Pokémon caught with the second cheat (idk about the first cheat it didn’t work on my game) they are always Quirky nature. I was hoping to find a Lonely nature shiny Charmander but I think it might be a bug.

    Otherwise thanks for the cheat code!

    • Sorry but there’s no code for female as for now. Depending on rom version, some say only shiny female Pokemon appears and some only shiny male appears. Strange but there’s nothing we can do for this (Hopefully there’s a way).

    • Amazing, yeah you might need to change the nickname of your shiny Pokemon. Tips: Check your bag or pc for any bad egg, if you found one don’t save the game.

  14. Neither one of these work so I don’t understand how people are saying they worked. I’ve tired both of them, nothing.

    • Sorrt to hear that but that’s a known downsides of this cheat. Seems like your ROM version isn’t compatible with the cheat code. Where did you get that ROM?

  15. Uh I have a problem: The secondary backup code worked, but the name was all scrambled up. Like Arjhg and the A had a ~ over it. Help?

    • Mate, please try to use our recommended ROM. Is your FireRed rom a US version? You should have to make these cheat works.

  16. I tried it with a fanmade game made with the same mechanics as FR…but it froze as soon as I encountered a wild Pokemon…

  17. I’m on a Mac running macOS Sierra and using OpenEmu, I enter :



    39584B19 D80CC66A+CE71B3D3 1F6A85FB+198DF179 5413C867+73ECB8A0 BDD8B251+D5AFFB37 6855972C+73ECB8A0 BDD8B251

    but have no luck

    • Man, try another emulator, OpenEmu is not stable recently for Pokemon cheats. Download Bluestacks and install My Boy app to play any GBA games.
