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 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.
Pokemon Fire Red: Shiny Pokemon Encounter Gameshark Code Cheat
Use the code below and enter it in your emulator, and this cheat is referred to as Action Replay codes.
In most cases, you can leave the cheat type settings “Auto detect” in your emulator
Shiny Cheat for Pokemon FireRed
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 tried this on another version.
See the cheat in action; I created a video for Fire Red Shiny Pokemon Cheat video here.
How do you make your party pokemon shiny? ( a pokemon that you are using) or make a marking pokemon code (where you mark your pokemon on bills pc)
im trying to get the same answer
How do you make your pokemon that us on your party shiny??
I think that’s possible, you can combine a wild pokemon modifier with shiny cheat but to me, that’s a too risky move.
I put the second cheat and it worked, but it always comes with the same nature (Hardy) what should I do?

whats the shiny cheat for the John GBAC emulator

Is there a shiny cheat for japanese region
Hi,I have a doubt I use pokèmon fire red v1.0 modded ROM which is called Pokèmon mega evolution v-2 I tried resetting it several times but it never changed the gender and the nature it is always female and always has lonly nature.please help Quickly
Works but I’m also using a rom hack called Moemon MegaFireRed. Turns on and off, I’m using Action Replay v3 as the type and Pizza Boy emulator
pls make a code for the version 1.1 version, if not is it possible to trade between the the two versions?
I doubt that’s possible Nick, sorry.
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.
my pokemon turned into nidorino
a question mark appears. that is all that happens.help.
It doesn’t work don’t recommend it…if I put the code it says This code is invalid! And it’s not great…
If it says invalid, it means there’s a problem with the entered code. Be sure to remove empty spaces before or after each codes. Empty spaces can cause invalid error. Also, try to switch to another cheat type. Hope this helps.
Does it work on starters?
You mean the shiny cheat? Yes it works on starters.
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
For some reason, even though I’m using the V1.0 ROM for Fire red, USA version, it still makes the wild shinnies female with a serious nature. I’ve looked literally everywhere on how to fix it, any suggestions?
Thanks for coming here Anthony, yes you have the right rom version. Unfortunately, that’s the major problem when activating the shiny cheat and as of yet, there’s no accurate fix. Sorry.
Hey its a bit late but Shiny’s WILL obey you after the second badge. I also had this issue and after the first badge it still wont obey. Im now 2 badges in and i can use them. Its probally because the game thinks its a trade pokemon after you catch it.
Whoa! I didn’t know that BROALD, thanks for this information.
-Anyone can confirm this information correct?
The codes get in the game but
doesnt make wild pokemon shiny
If you can’t make it to work, most likely you have V1.1 FireRed rom version.
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.
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.… Read more »
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.
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… Read more »
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
im having the same sorta thing but all my pokemon are docile nature and male ????
Restart your game while leaving the cheat enabled and this will reset the nature and most probably the gender.
Do you have a code for 1.1?
Sorry mate but cheats works best only for V1.0 rom versions.
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.
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.
I’m not quite sure about your findings since I haven’t tried it before but that’s interesting to know, hope anyone can confirm this.
Does this work for starter pokemon?
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?
Hey there Ben, you need to have a FireRed V1.0 to make it work.
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.
is there any new code for shiny females. The current two only give me shiny males, even with the all female code. ????????????
Hi RubesCubes, I tried to find a code for that as well but no luck so far. Also, I found out that the shiny cheat gives different results depending on FireRed rom version you have. Ex, Firered squirrels version gives shiny male but the firered independent version gives shiny female.
This is actually false. I have encountered female Clefairy with the second code activated.
So still not sure why certain Pokemon are only male.
This shiny cheat gives you only female shiny Pokemon.
Yeah except I have the FIre Red Squirrels version which is supposed to give only shiny males.
. I also tried the codes with the Fire Red Independent version 1 yesterday and neither worked even when applying different previously used master codes. ????????
I also have a shiny Raichu by the way. I can send you a screenshot if you want. ????????
Feel free to submit a screenshot.
This is with the squirrels version.
Wow! You mean you can encounter both female and male gender shiny Pokemon using the shiny cheat code listed above?
***Shiny Female Raichu
I used this shiny cheat in a FireRed rom hack and it only gives me shiny female Pokémon
Actually it depends on your rom version, some version gives shiny female while some shiny male. Unfortunately there’s nothing you can do with it.
Do you have or are you working on codes for v1.1?
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
How do I enter the code into my gba/sp gameshark? I always try but I fail
Does this work on OpenEmu?
I’m not very sure because OpenEmu is unreliable when it comes to cheating but give it a try.
Neither code works on my emulator
What’s your emulator? Also, be sure to use a FireRed V1.0 rom, I believe this reddit post can help you https://www.reddit.com/r/GBA4iOS/comments/850fcd/cheat_codes_wont_work/
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
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?
I don’t have a code for that, I’ll let you know when I find one.
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.
both codes didnt work any solutions
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.
Do i have to type in all of those lines pr just one line of numbers?
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.
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!
Is there a all female code? cause all of mine are males especially Espeon 🙁 ,,,,,,,
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).
Worked for me : ), but when I catch shiny Pokemon and don’t nickname them, the name it gets looks funny..
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.
So all the shinys i find are male even the ones who are mostly female in other words i cant find shiny female
You need a mastercode
what do we name it as
Didnt work all of them i used my boy
It’s the version of your ROM that’s why the cheat didn’t work.
What version must i have?
You can use the Squirrels version, you can get it at Emuparadise
It’s not on empuradice anymore. Is there any other versions that work?
LoveRoms is an alternative to emuparadise, however, some reported that their Pokemon GBA ROMs do not work for cheats.
I’m using gba4ios and it didn’t work
Try using another version of FireRed rom.
Neither one of these work so I don’t understand how people are saying they worked. I’ve tired both of them, nothing.
It really work, however, you need a US version FireRed ROM and recommended GBA emulator to make it work. Care to share your GBA emulator and ROM you are using? I’m more glad to help.
It is a US version, Pokemon Fire Red Version (U) (V1.1) I’m also using my boy and continuously tried these two cheats. Nothing.
Man, that version of FireRed won’t work. Download and use FireRed (U) Squirrels version instead.
How do i download it on my boy??
Worked but it had a scrambled name
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?
Actually its not an issue with the rom. He/She forgot to turn off the code during the encounter
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?
That’s a known bug of this cheat and there’s nothing we can do with it unless you use the appropriate ROM version for this cheat.
Turn The Cheat Codes Off Before You Catch The Pokemon, That Should Solve It.
Thanks for the tips Steven, that is surely useful.
It’s not working I tried both
Mate, please try to use our recommended ROM. Is your FireRed rom a US version? You should have to make these cheat works.
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…
Some cheats might work ROM hacks but not all are supported. Also, try to activate at least 2 cheats to avoid problems.
I tried it on the John GBA Lite-GBA emulator app, but it didn’t work ;-;
Try using MyBoy Android app.
Working fine on my copy of john GBA lite. Use squriles rom
I’m using John GBA lite and it works just fine, I’m also using a Romhack version of it, so maybe you used the wrong version of the game?
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.
