Hello there people!

First off, I'd like to address the fact that some people do not agree with this method of heightening chances to catch Shiny Legendaries so, to them, I understand your aversion to helping with this and I totally respect that. To each their own and more power to you. As for the the people who don't mind or find it an acceptable method of catching Pokemon, I am appealing to you for help and would like to thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

As it stands I have a naturally caught shiney Vileplume which I caught as an Oddish from my Emerald version and have already maxed out stat-reducing berries to ascertain it's initial stat values as well as gone as far as to obtain my "Secret ID" as well. However, I am guilty of using the RNG-report program to help me convert the values into the time when the proper frames should occur to bear a shiny Pokemon. In this case, Method 1 since I'm dealing with Rayquaza. My problem is that I am not sure how to interpret when to start my stop-watch so that I will be able initiate contact with Rayquaza at the right time to get him shiny.

This is my first attempt at using the Random Number Genertation method to heighten my chances of catching a shiny Pokemon so I am also unsure if I even got my Secret ID right. So, if there are any fellow RNG-ers out there who have successfully used this method in Pokemon Emerald to catch any shiny Legendary Pokemon (Method 1) out there, please help me learn how to do this right. Rayquaza is the only Pokemon I want to get as a shiny as it is my favorite Pokemon. If you can help me get an awesome nature to go along with it I would be extremely grateful but all I really care about is getting it as a shiny without having to use Action Replay or any external program which directly effects the code of the game to force a result. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

P.S.: If you'd rather respond to me outside this forum for the purpose of anonymity my MSN Messenger/Hotmail e-mail address is: [email protected] Thank you again!
