Naw I got it taken care of. I don't think it is currently possible to get a good Rapidash though... any shadow pokemon generated after two or more non-shadow pokemon are pretty much impossible at this time. Hopefully that changes in the future.
I did the second way. I dumped my memory card file to use on the emu, did my stuff, extracted the save, deleted the save on the memory card and imported it. As far as I know there is no way for Dolphin and VBA to connect.
Ok I'm at a bit of a dilemma; I just accidentally killed a salamence that outsped vappy. That means that it has at least a 26 IV in speed and a + spe nature (26/27 iv ties with vappy) The problem is, it did 59 damage to my 361 hp / 131 def vappy as well, which, if smogon's damage calculator is correct, means a 24+ atk IV and a neutral nature. What I'm wondering is if I should try to get it in one go and recatch it, or save and bother with it later. I know it's also either naive or jolly and not hasty due to how much lick from ursauring did to it. (it did slightly more than it did to a 18/19 hp iv / 30-31 def iv salamence that I caught earlier)
so the question is.... what should I do? we're looking (if everything I've theory'd is correct) at something like a 22+ / 24+ / 22+ / ? / ? / 26+ naive/jolly salamence :/
