    Trying for a shiny Wynaut from Lavaridge Town's old lady, using RNG Reporter and EonTimer. The more times I try, the weirder the resulting frames I hit, nowhere near my target.

    Anyone immersed in Method 1 RNG-abuse care to help?

      I've been successful in Method 2H a few times now (but I'm no expert); it's kind of the same procedure right?

      What game are you doing this on?

        Emerald.

        H-2 is mainly used for wild encounters; I've successfully used it too. 1 is for gift/received Pokemon, like the Wynaut egg, fossils, and the [email protected]

          I've only looked at it a little bit but I already got all the stationary/gift Pokémon in RSE so I never tried myself. Have you been successful with Method 1 before?

            No, this is actually my first attempt at utilizing it.

              Are you sure you're following the procedure correctly (starting EonTimer when you reset; pressing A at the right moment)? The first times it's obviously gonna be hard to hit the right target but how far are you from your target frame usually?

                This is my equipment's set-up:

                Spoiler:


                The more times I try, the more "off" my hit frame tends to be. The last time I tried, I got a gentle nature and gender that didn't match the only other gentle spread in the 1-second margin of error.

                  Oh god, your target is very late. Don't you have an earlier shiny frame (before 10,000)? Like this it's gonna take ages for you to hit your target.

                    Not an ideal shiny frame, no. This one's just a half-hour late; I've RNG'd for later, successfully.
