Hey Matt, what's going on? I see that you're busy with B/W more than ever now that you can get ready for VGCs of next year. And I thought you were going to sit this one out, XD? J/k
BTW, I'm finally almost done with KANTO!! In about 2 weeks time I'll be able to move on to Johto and the rest of the regions. I should fly by Johto being half the mons are evos/pre-evo of Kanto. And the others should be able to follow up from then.
I'm predicting that I'll be ready to breed for B/W mons about spring or in the halfway point of 2011(I know, such a long time, XD), but at least I have like the other 493 ready to go, XD.
for 5th Gen? Oh, it's coming. We just don't understand it all yet. For example, OD changed the MAC address of his Desume program (emulator) to match my DS's MAC address and it STILL didn't give us the same seeds. So there's something else going on that we just don't understand yet.
Hey matt, I will get that SurfChu soon. Its just that I was impatient and screwed up twice, XD. Although I have useful spitbacks, XD. I took risks on !! patches since I received one once from that patch, and I ended up getting FlailChus instead.
I just finished the rest of my experiment, and I'm afraid it is out of my hands or that I was extremely unlucky, XD. I ended up with the same Volbeat each time I hit the same seed. So there definitely is something in the PID to determine their gender, but some funky formula/equation is in it somewhere that determines this. I hope someone can get to it, XD.
Haha, I can only do so much myself, XD. So I'm going to grind through a few shiny RNG eggs and see if my prediction is correct. If I do manage to get both genders with the same seed, then the PID has nothing to do with determining gender for Nidos Volbeat/Illumise and its all based upon randomness. However, if I get nothing but the same Volbeat/Illumisse with my same shiny spread, then I would have to pass my experiment onto someone else who knows various programs and formulas to figure it out, XD.
I hope omega donut or someone similar can figure it out after all of you finish cracking the 5th gen RNG.
