    How is the honey tree abuse done? Do you have to slather the honey, wait 12 hours, then hit your seed? Or do you have to hit your seed first before you slather the honey?

    Quick question : calling Elm doesn't advance the "frame" for getting a shiny egg right? (like the frame in this case is supposed to be the amount of eggs you need to take/reject) So I can check my seed with Elm calls without risking skipping my frame?

    nope Elm calls do not advance the IRNG, so you can use them to check your seed without having to worry about skipping over your desired frame.

    Okay, then should I got with Elm calls over roamers? Since I heard they tend to make your frame or whatever go wrong... I just wanna learn to get this right with the least amount of luck involved >.<

    ok I hit my delay for a wild Slugma to catch. My reset time was at 5:00 in the morning, one of my target slots says he appears on slot 1 but only in the daytime. Could I just leave my DS till it turns to day ingame and continue my frame advancements accordingly?

    Also, I am a little confused on my frame advances. I am in the grass on my bike and did the Elm calls, when do I stop to get to my target frame? I have a sweet scenter and syncher, etc. My target frame is 991 in this case.

    EDIT: does the actual frame play a part in this or is it for only gift pokemon?

    I am 14 frames form my target: 2832. I am outside Lugia's cave. When I enter I have to turn 3 times and I don't know if that will advance my frame. Should I advance my frame untill 2832 and enter and catch Lugia or do something else?

    Edit: Btw what ball should I catch Lugia in? It's not shiny.

    There are no wild pokes inside Lugias cave, therefore turning should not cause any advancements.

    All right thanks. It took a while to get to this frame and I wanted to make sure I didn't have to do it over again.

    Going through the cave entrance might cause an advancement. I hope you tested once before doing your actual RNG. It didn't for me, but there are reports that it caused advancements for some players.

    Oh. I didn't know that. I guess I'll find out. I have the same iv spread close to the one I am doing. Only 2 frames away. Hopefully, if it does advance the frame it will advance by 2.

    EDIT: It adavnced my frame by 3!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

    Aw! Well, when you try again, go in and out of the cave as a test to see how much it advances. Do this when you still have plenty of frames left for keeping track of where you are.

    Okay. I think I'll test another day( it's getting late) and maybe find a spread with a lower frame.

    You should do a test on a wrong delay and see what frame you get when you do no phone calls or radio advancements. Use seed finder to see what frame you got. Then use what you learned to do the actual rng.

    Honey Tree abuse is like Legendary abuse. The pokes dont change once your tree starts shaking. :)

    Yeah. Whatever you do dont get lazy as the pokemons leave the honey tree after awhile. I lost a Heracross because I decided to do it the day afterward and I saved to water the berries. >.<

    I've a problem with Oh-ho (HG) starting frame: it's 3 or 4, it's inaccurate, why?

    I've got only 2 roamers: Raikou and Entei ..

    Is there away for veryfying that you have hit the right seed+frame when you are breeding for ivs. It takes ages to hatch the egg and check the ivs.

    Ok I'm close to hitting my frame of 991 for my pokemon in the grass, do I Sweet Scent when I hit 989 since it's 2 frames before my target? This is on SoulSilver.
