    I recently bought the Action Replay PowerSaves with the Power Tag and I've been using it with the new Zelda game on my Nintendo Switch. Datel's newest update for it included a Random Serial Number under Cheat's which allows you to randomize the bin serial number so you don't have to keep changing the date to use the same Amiibo. Well when I put SSB Link onto my Power Tag and I scan it first thing I get Epona and then when I use the serial randomize cheat and I scan it again I still get Epona. So does anyone know if there is a work around this? Was trying to scan to get the Twilight armor. I know that the problem is when I use the serial number randomize cheat it just resets the amiibo and keeps giving me Epona since she is set to be given to you the first time you scan the SSB Link amiibo. So if anyone knows of a work around that would be really helpful. Thanks.

    Go to the Gerudo desert to scan the amiibo. Horses can't travel in the desert so Epona is skipped in favor of the chests. Confirmed and have done this myself.

    Alternatively you could just accept Epona, board her then start scanning again.

    No, this does not work as it will still give you Epona even if you have one boarded. Otherwise this topic would not exist.

    Isn't Epona once per save unless you abandon her or she dies though?

    Are you boarding her or is it spawning multiple Eponas?

    I spawned 10 Epona's in a row and boarded 4 of them. Have not tried SSB Link since

    No, you can have as many Epona as you want. It's designed to have a high chance of giving you Epona the first time you scan the amiibo. Unfortunately if you have more than one SSB Link amiibo (or you randomize the serial like OP is doing) you get Epona on the first scan for each unique amiibo serial, which prevents you from chain-scanning the amiibo to try and get the other rewards.

    Great Plateau is another place that'll allow you to spawn normal chests.
