Yes, Renegade Platinum made the change to allow all special encounters (like legendaries) to spawn as shiny, so you can get a shiny version of any Pokemon.

Here's a more detailed explanation:

 

You need a specific type of rom- there are two versions of Platinum, and this one requires Revision 1, or else the first rival battle will crash.

You can identify a Revision 1 rom if it's marked Rev 1, or if the number at the start of the file name is either 4997 or 4998. If the number is 3541, the rom is the wrong version.

Once you're sure you have the right version, make a backup of the rom file, just in case. You can copy+paste it into the same folder, which will just save a duplicate of the file. Rename it to mark it as the backup if you like.

 

Extract AlteredPlatinum-b151.xdelta from the download, and DeltaPatcherLite.exe as well, into a folder with the rom. I recommend using 7-Zip for this; this is a free program you can download which will open .zip files. Link: https://www.7-zip.org/ (For most modern computers running Windows, you'll want the "64-bit x64" version.)

Run DeltaPatcherLite.exe.

Click the yellow folder icon next to the "Original file:" box, navigate to where your rom is, and double-click it.

Then click the folder icon for the "XDelta patch:" box, and find AlteredPlatinum-b151.xdelta, double-click that.

 

Once you've done this, click "Apply Patch", and wait for a window to pop up saying "Patch successfully applied!".

That means the rom file you selected has been patched, and it's now a copy of Altered Platinum! You should probably rename the file to something like "Pokemon Altered Platinum" at this point.

Then you just have to open the file in your emulator of choice, and play! Personally, I use DeSmuME.

The Deep Rock Galactic reference in the Solaceon Ruins made my day haha. Great Hack by the way it's really rejuvenated Gen 4 for me after playing the pretty disappointing remakes.

Glad you're enjoying it! Sinnohan Sandslash is actually sort of based on a Glyphid Slasher.

Rock and Stone, miner!

I don't mean to complain or be rude, but I hunted for a shiny Krabby and when it appeared it was green/yellow, just like in the original games not in the colour you recoulered it for this hack. Is this a accidental mistake or a glitch? Still, I'm not too bothered by it, thought it was a bit weird.

I went into the game files and discovered that a few shinies had not been changed. I'm not sure why, but it should be fixed now.

How do you evolve budew and Roselia been trying to figure out for days can’t find it anywhere 

Budew evolves if it levels up knowing Detect, and Roselia evolves if it levels up knowing Aura Sphere. It's right there in SinnohanForms.txt, in the documentation that comes with the hack...

Released b1.5.3, which simply fixes Electivire's second ability not being Iron Fist as intended, and fixes the version shown in the pause menu not being updated, which I forgot to change in the last version.

Might as well be clearer about the changes.

My tyrogue won’t evolve to hitmomchan even after levering it up with life orb. Any idea on how I can evolve it?

That's very odd. I tested this out myself on the latest version of the hack and evolved it successfully without issue.
Check the options menu. What version are you playing on?

what Eevee evolution is strongest, offensive-based wise? i normally go with Flareon when i play Renegade Platinum, but with this...i'm just not sure. i like how Espeon gets Magic Guard. but idk which one to pick between physical-offensive or special-offensive. Help?

That's kind of a difficult question to answer.

Among the Eeveelutions, I'd say Flareon, Jolteon, Espeon, Leafeon and Glaceon are the offensively-focused ones, but exactly which one is 'strongest' is going to be hard to determine, because they're all supposed to be about as good as each other.

Which one you should choose, I would say, depends on what else you want to use on your team. Eevee is a useful 'wildcard' mon, because if you can pick five other Pokemon to use on your team and you're not sure what goes in the last slot, chances are there's an Eeveelution that will fit.

I will note that Leafeon and Glaceon have been significantly altered. Leafeon is supposed to be able to work as a nice revenge killer, hence its access to Extreme Speed and Sucker Punch. Natural Cure also helps it survive for longer when switched out, which gels nicely with revenge killing, and especially U-turn.

Glaceon is now much faster as well, and with its stats it could work sort of like an Ice-type Gardevoir, using Calm Mind to set up and sweep, or Nasty Plot for pure offense.

Espeon also gets Gem Flash, which is extremely strong with Technician since it's basically a Rock-type version of Charge Beam.
