    So to RNG the Shiny Gyarados in HG/SS you have to use the same method as you would use to RNG a shiny in D/P/Pt? Which part of the D/P/Pt guide does that fall under, Part 4?

    I'm confused as to where to start with this Gyarados. Is the first step to calibrate and find my SID?

    Just posted this in the SQSA but I think it's better suited to go here:

    Does anyone know which floor of Whirl Islands is "Unknown Floor A"?

    I want to RNG abuse Horsea there but Idk which floor that is :S The encounter slot table lists it as Unknown Floor A, so I'm confuses .-.

    If I'm abusing latias, do I RNG it before Steven tells me about it or any time later?

    You have to save at the Pokémon Fanclub, right before you get out. You have to do the advancements and delay checking at this point. Make sure you do a test run first.

    Thanks! So if I want to RNG it, I would do what you said, then am I free to do other things in the game before I capture it? And the OP says it starts on frame 11 or something, so would I not be able to rng it if my shiny frame is frame 4?

    When still in your PokéGear, switch to the Radio. Then, go from center to Pokémon Talk and back. First post says you'll adcance 14-18 frames, but that's not true. When switching to Pokémon Talk and back to the center, you'll advance 13-14 frames.

    5000/14= 357 times from Center to Pokémon Talk.


    Yes. You can save if you'd like, but that's the point it's released. And I don't think you can reach frame 4 for Latias, since you have to check your delay as well.

    11, but have you released it yet?

    If you did some calcs, you would've seen 5000 isn't divisible by 14 either. It's 357,1428571.. etc, so 357, just to be sure you're not over that frame yet.

    So, at the time Lati@s is released, its IVs and shininess is already determined?

    Yes sir.

    Well you do have to check which frame you got after 357 times Radio, you could be between 4641 and 4998

    Save in front of the exit, hit you delay but don't do any advancements yet. Starting frame 11 is an average, it just depends on you fast you can bring your Pokégear up. Just do a test run first. :)

    Lol. In that case, since I just released it, I need to turn it off. That means re-abusing suicune for me :( Since I didn't save after I caught it...

    Yeah that's not a problem, just check whice frame you're on after you done the delay check, and then go out and capture it to see how many frame your game advanced. Then turn it off, and try again. This time you will do the advancements. :)

    Glad I can help dude, just post here if it's not working for some reason.

    Well you can knock it out and abuse it at the E4, which could give you the opportunity to reach frame 4, but you'll have to do a test run for that too, not sure. OR you can use a re-battle code, or just capture Suicune again. I see you've done a lot more abuses lately, so abusing a new Suicune wouldn't be much of a problem for you. I guess it'll take 5 to 10 min. :)

    Eh, I already caught him again just now xD
    But would you recommend still killing off Latias? And its IVs can indeed get regenerated after I do that? Lol I'm sorry you're kind of getting swamped by all these questions at once...

    No problem ^^

    Lol. Well, when you kill it, it'll re-appear once you've beaten the Champion. So you have to save in front of Lance, but you'll have to check your delay with Entei and Raikou, because you cannot make any calls at the E4.

    And don't worry dude, I'm here to help. :)


    Nope, you could be between 0 and 3 higher, so that wouldn't kill you.
