I saw a friend of mine has a pokedex full of shinies. My question is how do you get it like that? Cheating?
To be able to see shiny pokemon in the Gen 5 pokedex, you have to have seen them in the wild or if you have obtained them.
if he had the entire pokedex this way, he cheated.
I'm not exactly sure, but most likely hacks using an ActionReplay.
