    If entering in normal values for calibrated delay and seconds aren't working for you, then you have to find what your calibrated delay and seconds are. Delays are normally even only or odd only depending on the cartridge.

    Though it's for DPPt, calibration should be done the same way: http://www.smogon.com/ingame/rng/dpp_rng_part2 Read up on it ^^

    Well ID/SID combo works with certain spreads only, ie a certain ID/SID combo could product flawless for HP ELectric 70 Timid/Modest. There's no universal ID/SID combo that would give you flawless everything I'm afraid, :P

    I see. Well I am curious.

    I notice a lot of people on the 'Discuss my Pokemon' thread usually has a lot of Pokemon with 30 all the way(except with one being low for obvious reasons). And then they are shiny as well.

    I don't want a whole shiny team, though I like to get a few for keeps and what not.

    I am just interested in getting a Shiny Ralts with 31 all the way except Sp Atk. And stuff like that.

    I started a new game on my platinum cartridge. I just got up to the point where Cynthia asks if I'm ready or not to go into the distortion world. I told her no. Can I save here and still be able to RNG for Giratina, Palkia, Dialga, & the tri legends? I just want to go ahead and calibrate my game for this cartridge since I haven't done so up until this point.

    I was calibrating my Pokemon Platinum and here's what I got.

    Seconds: 6 Delay: 614
    Seconds: 6 Delay: 600
    Seconds: 8 Delay: 600
    Seconds: 6 Delay: 604
    Seconds: 7 Delay: 602

    Can I determine my average delay/seconds from this or should I do it a few more times? (I was mashing A the whole time, btw.)

    Edit: How am I supposed to calibrate HGSS? There are no Wild Pokemon over Level 50 there.

    yeah the IVs/nature for Giratina/Palkia/Dialga and the pixies aren't decided until you interact with them, so sure you can leave and go calibrate you can even knock out Giratina in Distortion World and it will reappear at Turnback cave.

    Oh wow that's awesome! Is it easier to do it in turnback cave?

    I've seen quite a few people do it in distortion world...maybe for Location purposes. What's your opinion?

    if you have a high frame then go for distortion world due to the 11 frame advancement every time the distortion world map loads. If you want to RNG it at your leisure then do it at Turnback Cave.

    Alright sounds good. I haven't checked the output I get from my ID/SID yet but once I do I can decided whether to do it in Distortion World or in turnback cave.

    Thanks a lot :)

    Just so I can save a whole lot of interwebz searching, can someone point me to the page that teaches how to abuse for your ID / Secret ID in emerald by starting a new game? I want to be able to roll around in the tall grass and find shiny pokemon straight after a soft reset like I saw on one youtube video.

    It isn't possible to ID/SID abuse in Emerald. You just have to get a list of PIDs you want shiny, and SR until you get a combination that makes one of those PIDs shiny.

    wouldn't that take as forever as it would to find a shiny normally? except you'd have unlimited shinies after you got it.

    Well it took me 3 days of SRing to get a combination that would make my Mew/Deoxys's spread shiny. And I was trying to make any one of 33 PIDs shiny, just happened that I got that one

    I've never actually RNG'd emerald before so how long does it take to get in game and start running around? what approximate frame would that be? and if I wanted one of those frame between the time I can start running and a second or two after that to be shiny, how would I check my ID/secret ID after each soft reset new game? What I don't understand is how you were able to check after a new game whether that spread would produce a shiny before you tried again? see i don't need them to get a certain spread, i want to see if i can get shiny pokemon sometimes right after a reset. If there is no way to abuse for a ID / secret ID combo, then how were you able to know what that combo was quickly before you tried again?

    The process is not fast. Your ID/SID is generated around where you enter your character's name. I had to start a new game, use RSEdecode to find my ID/SID, use another program to check it against all the PIDs I wanted, and then it told me if it would make on shiny. Nothing happened for 3 days until I finally got it. And I don't know how to do what you are asking, sorry :( its a bit confusing

    176, 562, 488. Which is one of the lowest frames for a flawless spread. The modest flawless spread for example, is on frame 2 billion +
