i figured it out and my tidsid cant, but if someone still wants to answer go ahead
im gonna reset pokemon diamond until i get a combo that works
get a cute charm Pokemon, encounter several million wild Pokemon, and check whether more than 1/8192 of them are shiny
I think questions on the unanswered list are unresolved regardless of how old they are, so these comments should not be hidden just for necroposting.

When Cute Charm works in those games, it does so by setting the top three bytes of the four-byte PID to all 0s. This results in an ESV that can never be higher than 31, so if your TSV is higher than 0031, you'll never get a match with any of those manipulated PIDs. 4109 is right out.

So if I can score an ESV lower than 0031, will the cute charm glitch work?
