Pokémon Box Ruby and Sapphire Wrong (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Wrong (open) Wrong (close) Pokémon Box Ruby and Sapphire doesn't use the same seeding function as the R/S carts when playing your GBA save on the GC/Wii. Likely being seeded by the GC. How unfortunate. Edit: Doesn't appear to be a 16bit seed either... huh. Turns out that due to primarily not getting Method 1 spreads I was getting the wrong results. Box seeds the same way as normal, using the GBA RTC. However with alternate spreads, like Method 4 this opens up other possibilities. Edit: Only some mons seem to be generated by Method 4 always... the rest are normal. Regirock seems to be Method 4, while starters are Method 1. One would have to test which ones always seem to be one method or the other. Edit 2: For live battery carts even when they're disconnected the R/S Box game seems to keep tracks of it, even across SRing. Meaning that the seeding is exactly the same as your GBA cart.
