  1. To me, wild in caves use the straight method 1 (RS) while rock smashing (even safari zone) and fishing use method H-2 with the synch doing its job (Emerald).

    I have never seen predominately Method 2/4 on a retail cart on a GBA with normal gameplay. If you are specifically RNGing using various techniques then that is different.

    I am talking about a normal gameplay I did on console over a decade ago. The predominant method is method 2, just like on emulator.


    When are methods H-1, 2 and H4 used? I only tested RSE and this is what I know, I am unsure about FRLG:

    Method 1: Legends and wilds (sweet scent and walking, no idea about rock smash and fishing)

    Method H1: Never? Maybe having a synch lead will trigger it?

    Method 2: Is this a thing? Maybe only walking?

    Method H2: Sweet scent, fishing, rock smash. No synch required.

    Method 3/H3: Not even reported on the rng reporter, is this a legend?

    Method 4: Legends (rare), wilds (walking at least)

    Method H4: Maybe having a synch lead will trigger it? After abusing the sav to shiny a method 4 spread, I can't seem being able to shiny that spread as method h4 even with a shynch.

    It is well known that emulators (box included) cause method 4 because of the timings.

    There's no difference between console and retail in this case either.

    Method 1 for grass encounters on a retail cart on a GBA should still be the most common.

    So far I have all the boxes full of wild pokemon in my emerald cartridge played on console, and only 2 wild pokemon are method 1 (shiny spheal and a skitty), all the others are method 2 and like 10 of them are method 4.

    This seems to be a result comparable to the vba v24 that I used to rng as emulator, since I only rng and don't randomly capture, so the fact I haven't found any method 1 isn't far from the console reality, as the method 2 and 4 encounters seem to be comparable to console ones.

    Also background music influenced pokemon box kyogre/groudon rngs, because I always had the same result without a background music triggering the dialogue with the legend, while I had different results with the background music because, even using the same states, triggering the dialogue at a different frame but still starting the fight at the same seed to rng the same spread, caused to or not to trigger the method 4. Also, only with the background music, some spreads are sometimes entirely skipped and the difference where you must trigger the encounter varied randomly a lot. Like, sometimes, a singular frame advance made multiple seed advancements.

    This way, with the background music, you don't have to manually refresh the screen with the pokedex to make it possible to change the method.

    You're getting method 2 and 4 because you're on a emulator.



    No, I always get method 2 and 4 on retail too as well as method 1 (method 1 is rare on console tho).

    I have never seen method 4 from Pokemon box. Do you have self obtained box pokemon this way?

    Edit: I was thinking about bonus eggs.

    Sure, regis and rayquaza will almost always method 4 when you're playing from box. I've done all the legends method 4 , although I did it on emulator after seeing it working on retail.

    You don't *need* a box link as method 4 can be random from retail, but the box link will most likely make it happen.

  6. Hi there.

    I know that generally wild pokemon are generated by method 2 but method 4 can actually happen, especially with pokemon box.

    But I've just dumped my old sav of pokemon emerald and the only shiny I caught over 10 years ago has a PID and IVs that match the method 1, which is ever confirmed by the Pkhex. No such spread exists for method h1 without a synchronizer, just a plain method 1.

    But I've never seen any method 1 pokemon when doing rng abuse on the emulator, it just randomly switched to method 4 occasionally.

    So, how is the method 1 engaged for wild pokemon?

    Regarding deliveryman for wonder cards: Isn't that the same as official cards? He only disappears if you delete the card?

    Seems so. Only the eon ticket seems an exception as it isn't visible as a wonder card.

    Eon ticket -> Doesn't need the wondercard edited to be distributed, as the official one also is already distributable -> Postman disappears

    Wondercards -> Needs the edited wondercard to be distributed -> Postman stays there forever on both the distributable and distributed

  8. Hey, this worked, thanks! The BIOS file wasn't even needed. It was extremely fast at first try. :)

    Hopefully this version will also work on dolphin's box connection, as with others the pokemon box screens doesn't show the nintendo logo and doesn't do anything after the  gba bios animation


    However, are we sure the old sea map wondercard is legit? The missing item sprite makes me wonder about it...

    Use the Inject WC3 button in the main window. The official event distributor only injects official unedited wondercards and those are not shareable.

    Oh, I thought it was the opposite. Especially considering the eon ticket worked trasferred via the "official event distributor", and that the directly injected wondercard doesn't have the sprite and has the "bugged" postman.

    When I inject the shareable wc I get the send option.

    I don't know what to say, I tried injecting multiple times already using the button "official event distributor" on the main page of the tool and then opening the file in the second window and selecting the old sea map.

  11. Just now, BlackShark said:

    I don't think that wondercard is even redistributable. There should be a forth option I think, because よみこむ = Read.


    There are 2 separate files, one for the wc inject directly in the event collection, and one that is in the shareable wondercards folder which is made to be distributed.

    I obviously used the shareable wondercard using the shareable inject option, maybe it has been done badly and never tested?

  12. Yes, I can trade with this setup.

    I also mixed the records corectly.

    To distribute events, I know you must have wireless conneciton instead of cable one. I did this, and in fact doing this the mistery event option disappears from the menu, which means it's correctly set up, as this would not happen with cable connection.

    I tried to swap the host and second player with no result.

    Aside from the mistery gift tool not injecting correctly the distribution-enabled wondercard, I have no idea what else it could be.

  13. Hi there. With the mistery gift tool I injected a distribution wondercard of an old sea map on a junk completed save file, I tried to distribute it on my legit sav but, altough the devices connect correctly (it is noticeable because the mistery event option disappears on both games altough it's unlocked), but I can't successfully send it over.

    Also, on the injected file, the postman never disappears, I am unsure if it's normal.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    WIndows 7 and i believe am I, is there a specific way to update it? I had to redownload it would that not be the most recent one?

    This is the latest release. It happened for me on windows 10 the same issue with other programs and also booting or install again didn't work, I """solved""" this by clicking the program and wait 20 minutes, since that time the program started correctly without any delay, what it does cause it is a mistery. So, just wait after clicking at it for the first time, then it will work as expected.

  15. You just need homebrew, not the CFW. You can use the version you want and you don't need to update, because if you want to access the online you just need to use the app "ctrhttp" that's included in the starter kit. The VII generation saves are more easy to backup than the VI (Well, ORAS require particular things to do only if you are on 11.1+).

    For Sun and Moon (whatever version of 3ds you own) you just need to put in your 3ds folder the program called JKSM. With that you can extract, modify the sav with Pkhex on PC and then restore it again with JKSM.

    As usual,

    Pkhex doesn't automatically have the wonder card data, hence it shows that.

    Yeah I thought that but it has beed the first released event and that has been contributed, so it looked sospicious for me.
