Does synchronize not work for event Pokemon that are given to you in the mart?

Seems like it doesn't.

Yes it does. It worked when I got my Shaymin.

Hm, took me twenty resets to get a Timid Arceus with a Timid Synchronizer.

Yes it works. I've done it on multiple event pokes. You guys just have bad luck. The only poke I've had trouble getting the synch to work is with Cresselia for some reason.

No, you got lucky. It doesn't work.

For all intents and purposes, Mystery Gift Pokemon are essentially generated via method 1, and Synchronize doesn't affect method 1. Cresselia is also a method 1 Pokemon, which is why it didn't "work" for her.

It can't be because the PID is generated by Method 1, unless the mechanics changed between D/P and Platinum. Everything in D/P used Method 1, and Synchronize doesn't work on Mystery Gift Pokemon in D/P.

this. its not that bad though. its not like you have to catch it. i SR'd for both of my arceus (one timid, one adamant) in a relatively short amount of time

Uh, that link says all pokemon, event or wild, in gen 4 are generated by method 1. If that was the reason it didn't work then it wouldn't work on wild pokemon.

Pokemon given to you can't be synchronized. If there is no battle, there is no synchronization.
