@helix and empty: yu kidding? I didn't even have internet access. there's no way any hacks were oon my system. also, this was years ago: I don't even have that DS anymore, after it fell out of the roofrack along with all my games, and my first shiny; a golbat that I found in the cave of origin. the only reason I got OR is because it came with my replacement DS. but I distinctly remember it happening; I looked at a root fossil, decided i did not want, then chose... another root fossil.
