Out of battle, it makes Wild Pokémon less-likely to appear. .Reusable.  They last as long as you're in the general area you used it if (if you used it on Route 115, and then moved one tile over to Route 114, the effect would disappear).

This doesn't give any indication how much the Flute reduces wild encounters by.
K.... I'll fix this.
Ugh checked everywhere... Cant find it.
The black flute will cut the encounter rate in half.

Can you perhaps take a sceenshot?
Honestly, I don't know how...
If it's iOS, just press the lock button and the home button at the same time to take a screenshot. Then upload it to your computer and share it on imgur or another image sharing service.
But is that reliable?
It's an App for an iPhone, should be pretty reliable tbh :S

It decreases the encounter rate by 50%.


Halves the wild Pokémon encounter rate.

When used in the field, halves the rate of encounters with all wild Pokemon.


Used outside of battle : Decreases the wild Pokémon encounter rate by 50%.
