That strategy never seemed to work for me. I'd always try it and everytime I checked, they'd be the next route over. So I'd go to the next route and it'd be on the next route and I swear it would be like that. I got em all eventually though
Reminds me when I FINALLY caught Latios or Latias (I don't remember which) in Sapphire, the same day or next day my nephew played my game, and saved over my file. And-- I think that's why I have a bad stigma with Gen 3, and that was the last time I've ever played Sapphire.
My Sapphire broke. No idea how, but that socket dealy on the inside of it fell out so i could never play it again. Dont think i ever caught a Latias or Latios, but i did catch Latias in my Heartgold version(which is a much harder hunt than any of the dogs ever were).
Latias flies around Kanto in HG, and Latios in SS. They are sooooo much harder to find compared to the dogs and that pixie alf thing/Cresselia ever was. There was an event item for getting the other one, but i never got any key event items.
You also have to beat Red before they spawn. And when you beat Red you can choose a starter pokemon from g1 and g3.
