I will conclude that its the same as DPPt when it comes to advancing through steps/turns in wild pkmn inhabited areas (with the exception of left turns in the b1 area of burnt tower until further investigation). However, my offset of 252 for Raikou earlier isnt explained. 128 steps would be 128 frames according to this info. But the amount of turns was not even close to half of 128 (128 x 2 is 256 anyways so forget about it even if it was half). It is possible for turn counting error, but forget counting, its obvious that if you run from the bottom then turn and go to the top (in b1 of burnt tower approximately 40 steps) and repeat until 100 and do the rest at the little space next to the stair towards the dogs, theres no way you cudve even turned 40 times, which is less than half. So how is offset nearly double? (256-5+251) More research needed
Also, I was wondering if I am allowed to post my experiences here. Thanks
I didn't see this when it got posted, so I'm going to reply now.
When I was doing my dogs, I was going for a frame of 41 I believe, or 46. Either way, I had to, in the end to 39 steps/turns, which makes no sense. So there is something weird happening there with advancements I believe.
Was bored so I did some latias test. All with 2 runners (Raikou and Entei)
1 - Frame 11
2 - Frame 11
3 - Frame 10
