How is TSV calculated in Gen 4?

Recommended Posts

Lately, I've been shiny hunting distortion world Giratina in Pokémon Platinum, but it's been taking forever. Now I'm wondering if it can even shine for me, so I started looking into TSV for Gen 4 but can only find stuff for Gen 6 and 7. So how is TSV calculated in Gen 4? Because what I've found is TID xor SID = TSV, but when I put my IDs in it gives me 0.

I'm about 90% positive platinum giritina is shiny locked.

Shiny locks weren't introduced until Gen 5 with Victini, Reshiram and Zekrom being shiny locked

Oh yeah, :P

My bad.

You can always use rng reporter. It's available the site's downloads section.

If you choose to use it; you want method 1

Llooks good. Now you can either enter spread in pkhex/pokegen, or rng for it

So RNGReporter is saying that Shiny Giratina is possible with my IDs?

Any Pokemon with any PID can be shiny given the correct TID/SID combination.

 

The only exception I know of is magearna. But that is because there is no shimy sprite programed into the ROM
