Hi, I'm an RNG newbie, and this is my question: 4th Gen Diamond. RNG fossil pokemon is Method 1 right? Also, I want to get a shiny Cranidos with decent IVs. My seed is 7A050A41, frame 176, 2612 delay, confirmed thru coin flips. I have 2 Chatots with custom Chatter. I saved in front of the scientist in Oreburgh Mining Museum. Now, I got confused in the guide especially in Step 4: Frame Advancement. I did advancement using the Chatots, switched summaries until 175, and got Cranidos, but I always did not get the Nature, IV, and shininess. What am I doing wrong? Please enlighten me, thanks. EDIT: I got the IVs that I needed using steps+journal flips (via searching here in this thread) but it is not a shiny. I will keep it though. Why is it not shiny? I ticked the shiny tab with my ID and SID but did not show up. Thanks.
