That collection at the end of the video…
The creator of that impressive shiny Pokemon automator, dekuNukem, writes in to say that the machine has been improved since we last covered it. Here’s a look at the new, final version.
The amount of human input needed has been further reduced, resulting in a system that can catch shiny Pokemon in various states (while walking, surfing, fishing, or in a horde encounter) and continue after nabbing the coveted creature. What’s more, the breeding process — including depositing hatched eggs into the PC — has been automated. My goodness!
“It might look like a lot of work for a kid’s game, but to me it was more of a great exercise of microcontroller-related topics, I had fun making it, and learned a lot, so it’s far from a waste of time at least to me,” says dekuNukem. “I have made the program open-source so those who has what it takes can build one themselves, and I will not sell it.” It’s Pokemon. We understand.
