Citrus_Chao, you mentioned that you had over 70 emblems in your post. Exactly how many do you have? Because, when I was going through my second file I noticed that I only had one of the sets at the beginning, and I did not get the second one until much later. Unfortunately, I did not write down when I first started seeing eggs from the second set, so I don’t have an exact number of emblems to tell you to look for. So, for right now just try to get 100 emblems, and see if that’s enough. Hopefully, they’ll start appearing then, because you shouldn’t be missing two sets.

Also, to Mel Mel: Are you talking about copying a file to another memory card or to another file slot on the same memory card? Because, you can copy a file to another memory card as long as there isn’t another file with the same number on it. For instance, if the file I’m copying says it’s file one and the other memory card already has a file one then it won’t work. But, if the other memory card doesn’t have a file or the file is any number but one then it’ll work just fine. Unfortunately, you can’t copy files to the same memory card in different file slots, or I wouldn’t have had to get all 180 emblems all over again.

^I have a "corrupted" memory card, so I formatted it, got one emblem, saved it, and copied my 175 emblem file from a newer memory card to the "corrupted but formatted" one. The catch is, it showed a creepy half-scratched out picture for the save file, so when I went back to the Wii menu, went back to Gamecube memory, I had to format it again. >:/

BTW, I love your siggy! I'm trying to get a two-tone chaos chao of every color. Then two-tone regular (Not shiny) chaos chao. But looking at your siggy, I have a really great idea… Thanks!

I have 75 Emblems on my second Memory Card, and 73 on my third Memory Card. So they won't appear until I get more Emblems? Huh, weird.

To Link The Hedgehog: I have an orange MadCatz 1,019 block memory card, and a few months ago it corrupted. It was having similar problems, and I couldn’t get it to work at all, so I had to go buy a new one. So, I highly doubt you’re going to get it to work no matter how many times you format it.

Thank you for the compliment on my signature ( The sprites took a little while to make, but I’m quite happy with how they came out. ), and you’re welcome for whatever kind of idea I may have given you. ( I’m slightly curious as to what it is though. )

And, to Citrus_Chao: I think it’s a problem with the emblems, but if you manage to get all 180 and still can’t find another set then definitely let me know. And, even if you do find them before then, I would love to know how many it took to find them exactly, since that would be helpful information to know.

I sure hope it doesn't take me all 180 Emblems, but I guess that would be a little odd if it did. My first Card has about 100 Emblems, but I think I can get the second set before that. I'll work on it. :wink:

^I had 2 memory cards to begin with, an orange madcatz 16x and a black madcatz 16x, but when the black one corrupted, I bought a NEW black madcatz memory card. Then as soon as I was done copying my memory from the orange one, the orange one corrupted. I still have the old black card, and the new black card, but I'm careful with what I do so it doesn't need formatting. ».»

I've heard from a few different sources that the 1,019 block ( or 16x ) MadCatz memory cards are more susceptible to corrupting than most other memory cards. Which is why I bought a Nintendo one when I went to go buy a new memory card. I still have a blue 1,019 block MadCatz memory card that has been working for awhile, but the orange one I had for almost as long as I've had my Gamecube. I honestly think that the reason it may have corrupted was from me erasing a large file ( 45 blocks ) on the Wii and not the Gamecube.

Does anyone happen to know how many Emblems you need to have both Egg sets?

EDIT: Or is a different amount needed for each file?

To Link The Hedgehog: You could also try looking into other game stores such as GameCrazy or GameCity, since I’m sure that you won’t be able to find anything GameCube related at a normal retail store.

To Citrus_Chao: I really wish I could remember. I do think it took more than 100 to find the second set, but I’m not sure as to how much exactly was needed. And, there very well may be different percentages on different files as to how likely it is to find a certain color with enough emblems.

Well, I guess I'll just keep working on it. I'll tell you when I get the set.

So let me make sure I'm understanding.
On my file, I've got 110 emblems, about. I can't seem to find a Sky Blue egg. I would need to start another file on a different memory card, correct?

Oh, I've got another question.
Does the items cost the same/ have the same emblem requirements in SADX?

^ I believe they cost the same, but I think the emblems needed is different since SADX has less emblems.

For what reason would I not be able to find a shiny purple egg in my file? I have regular purple as well as both versions of yellow and pink. I have 168 emblems which I thought was enough to unlock every egg color.

Should definitely be able to get it. I have no idea why you would not.

Worst case scenario, breed a non-shiny purple with a shiny monotone.

I finally found one after what must have been close to 10 in-game hours of leaving my game on and checking the market every 15 minutes. I've been doing it in my spare time for the past 3 days. Did this just turn out to be the worst luck ever?

I was hoping to use purebred shinies for a later breeding project. Bred shinies were just gonna be my last resort if these eggs didn't show up.
