I did 16 journal flips so I can't do the find seed from stats. What can I do to know what frame I started on? I need to know what adjustments to make.
The NPC doesn't affect the coin flips; the coin flip results are related to the IRNG. If you don't get the right IVs on Entei, then perform the 10 flips like you normally would and look for your results in the list of adjacent seeds. Once you know what seed you hit, check Entei's IVs, and use them to find your frame.
Also, you should still be able to find your seed by catching a Pokémon and inputting its stats/IVs regardless of the 16 Journal flips.
