I really wanted a Shiny Absol for my HeartGold playthrough and I'm not sure if I have the patience to hunt it full-odds. I have some questions regarding the Cute Charm Exploit:

What are SID and TID?

How do I operate this exploit? Is it simply by having a Cute Charm
lead?

How do I find out my SID and TID?

Do I need to crap up the RNG?

Is it complicated?

That last question is a big yes
1. Your trainer ID is the number on your trainer card. Secret ID is the same thing except you can’t see it

2. Yes and no. You need to have the right TID and SID to get it to work. Once you have that, you just need cute charm

3. TID is on your card. You can find out your SID by seed generators online or via hacking software. There’s multiple numbers it could be depending on the seed (which is near impossible to know)

4. Yes

5. Very. Took me a few months to get it working.
Why don't you answer with that?
I could but I’m a firm believer in answering with proper sources and I’m too lazy to properly cite my facts
how do you get that seed?
near impossible to know which you have unless you rng manipulated for it

I'll go over the questions one by one.

What are SID and TID?

SID is Secret ID. TID is Trainer ID. Both are unique identifications for you in a Pokemon video game.
