Can someone please tell me the difference between common gba event unrestricted and restricted? im trying to make a anni celebi and wishmaker jirachi. according to projectpokemon, they should be restricted. But i keep getting unrestricted. so i was wondering does it matter if they are unrestricted and why are they that way?! thanks!
The restriction on the common gba event algorithm actually pertains directly to the number of people who participated in that particular event. Since most events had 1000 people or less in attendance, then the PIDs can be restricted to a subset of only 1000. Some events, such as GCAE had many thousands, and the same with JAA.
It seems that at other events, the PIDs were not incremented or restricted to a specific subset, therefore there is no restriction placed on them.
And all of this information is based on sample data, and information gathered from people who understand how the distribution machines worked during the GBA era.
