I asked on the wifi forums, and a guy from germany was like "hay, I have one, I RNG'd it myself", and like I said, I actually like RNG dittos, because it makes breeding 10x easier. I'm sure if you asked in "Simple Requests", someone would offer.
True that. Also I hate how they say it's valid because "it takes a lot of effort". Bitch, please, manual breeding takes multiple times that effort... I don't know, I'd feel dirty if I used RNG'd pokes..
Exactly. RNG might not be "hacking" in the sense that you're altering the code by hand, but you're still manipulating and abusing the games programing. I get that to be competative, ie on a simulator, each Pokemon should be as "standardized" as possible, but if you actually use a DS, if you want to play the game, play by the game's rules, and the game says RANDOM number generator. The ditto way helps, but even with it, it's still obnoxious to get 3-perfects, "decent" and "above average" babies are still born.
Yeah, what's the point in cheating to get "perfect" pokemon? I mean yeah, it is quite tedious to breed for 3 perfect stats and a specific nature, let alone more stats. But the game is about making good strategies, not having all 31 stat pokemon. It's really supid.. I mean, bar speed and HP (only in case of substitute pokemon), a couple more or less points in a stat won't really change a thing.. Oh and having the ditto isn't bad at all. You know, sometimes the game's a bitch and it just won't pass the IVs you want, so having more perfect stats on both parents helps raise the odds that you'll get a few of them... I've filled like 2 boxes of scraggies and I'm still not done with this (though I'm close xD). And I hate it when people argue that RNG is legal "because you're using the game's generator and pokechecks recognise it as legit". It's still cheating because you're using an external input to manipulate any result at will...
Bummer about not having harvest tropius, but I wanted to comment on your quote; I really enjoy it because I'm the same way. I despise RNG, at most I'll trade for someone's RNG'd poke for breeding (I do have a stock all-31 ditto because it makes life easier). But mad props, I see too many people running around with "perfect" pokemon
