Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

How do I find out my Secret ID in Pokemon Black 2?

0 votes

And what is it used for?

Some people have told me I need a shiny or something to work it out - but I don't have one :/
Is there any other way to work it out?

Thanks :)

I suppose I'll just have to try and catch as shiny then xD

Usually, this number cannot be viewed; however, certain cheating devices can be used to view it, and there are also calculators to determine it. It also comes into play along with the normal ID number and the personality value in determining if a Pokémon is Shiny. -Bulbapedia

So yes, you kind of do need a Shiny Pokemon. But as they said, it's supposed to be a secret.
