A Shiny Rayquaza also has red and yellow markings, but it's black instead of green. In "Pokemon Platinum," the only way you can get a Shiny Rayquaza is by using Action Replay.

Use the supplied USB to MINI USB lead to connect the cartridge with the software.

    Place "Pokemon Platinum" into the "Pass Through" port of the Action Replay cartridge. Switch your Nintendo DS on. Wait for Action Replay to recognise "Pokemon Platinum." Choose the "Code Select" button.
