Durant - #632 (Quirky) : 31 / 13 - 15 / 30 - 31 / 30 - 31 / 30 - 31 / 31
Now I can get that Frillish I've been looking for.
Thank you for all your help, son. PPRNG's working pretty darn well. You can have this Durant if you want it.
I find your use of 'son' in your posts... interesting. Regardless, I'm glad it finally worked out. I'm good for Durants, but thanks for the offer.

As others have mentioned (thanks others!), your process was incorrect. The date and time should be the date and time you started the game from the DS menu for the current session. And turning on the C-Gear completely reseeds the IV RNG, defeating the whole purpose, so never turn it on.

I appreciate suggestions that will make the program easier to use. In the case of ESVs, your situation is why I added the ESV column to the seed searcher, but at the moment you can't filter results on it, obviously. The one problem I'm working on related to this is the fact that the ESV will change depending on what kind of encounter you will have (grass vs. shaking grass vs. water, for example). I'll see what I can come up with after I finish ID/SID abuse.
Just to add, it won't actually take any less time to do the search even if I do add filtering on ESVs. The search first finds a seed with matching IVs, then looks to see if there's a shiny frame within the specified range (default being 1000 PID frames). As of now, you can click on the column header to at least sort on ESVs as a kind of poor man's ESV filter (note that it doesn't resort as new results are added, so you'd need to resort it again periodically).
