So I'm having some trouble RNGing for wondercard IVs. I have found my seed/spread, frame, and time I need to hit. I have hit the delay and time multiple times but I don't get the right IVs. Then I realize I must not be hitting the correct frame. So I checked that, and at first (with no wondering pokemon) I found the frame was 89 (I am going for 88 so I do 43 journal flips then let the NPC move). In theory, I should have hit a frame of 88, but I did not (I am also in a Pokemart with only 1 NPC). So I thought maybe I should release one of my wonderers to make the job easier (since even frames are easier to hit with one wanderer). I boot up my game and hit my delay/time, then flip my journal 43 times, and I still hit a frame of 89.
Case A-Total RNG advances = Target frame (88) - # of wandering poke (0) - 1 - NPC advancement (1) = 86/2 = 43 journal flips
Case B-Total RNG advances = Target frame (88) - # of wandering poke (1) - 1 = 86/2 = 43 journal flips
This is a PBR Wondercard for Electivire, in case anyone was wondering (not sure it makes a difference). I haven't let the NPCs move in Case B, I don't know what I'm doing wrong?
