Everyone on a legit retail cart will hit 2 timer0s, some people hit both about half and half (maybe one just a little more than the other) but most people hit one more than the other. Nobody can only hit one and nobody can hit more than two (but in BW2, you will have more than 2 timer0s).
Intriguing. Thank you for letting me know all of that. I just hit Timid again, so I'm INCREDIBLY pleased. I don't mind trying over and over to hit the IV delay, as long as my Timid is consistent I am pleased as punch. I want to thank you for asking me to try again and be sure to follow your guide more closely - I found several errors in my method that way.
Timer0s control literally everything, right? They're the things that make everyone's seeds start at a different point on the RNG? Does that mean BW2 will be harder to RNG in every way?
