Hey can I ask you something? Does Dolphin in debug mode run much slower than when it's in normal mode? It does for me. The save states are compatible between each of them thankfully so I can get around the speed problem for the most part. Thanks.
Hey would transferring an XD emulator save to a GC memory card require an AR to defeat the save protection? I know there are applications that can transfer saves but those require a 3rd party memory card. I think there's another app that can use a 3rd party memory card as an AR or something... idk. It's an old app but I haven't had the chance to try it.
I think the only way to prove it for now is to note down the hex for the PID and IVs of a shadow pokemon, faint it, and encounter it a second time. If the IVs and PID are kept that would be all the proof we need as we already know the ability is generated again.
I've always leaned towards being generated separately. There are skipped RNG calls in the GBa games but Bond has theorized that they happen because the GBA is too slow for dividing stuff. I have a hard time believing that a RNG call is skipped for no reason.
