    This is weird...

    I'm going for a HP Ice spread (non-c-gear) on one of the roamers, but for some reason come up with a different spread that isn't listed in the main screen every time. I would have thought it was because I was advancing the frame 8 times oppose to 4, but that's not it. I also tried -2 seconds from target time and yet none match.

    Yes, I have encounter type on roamers and generated seeds under roamers.

    Are you doing the Key Press combos correctly?

    Yes. (B in this case) It probably has something to do with the roamers because I have no problems hitting wild/stationary Pokemon seeds. This is ridiculous. I tried without advancing the frame and get some other result that doesn't show up.

    EDIT: JRT: There's an option for that but I heard it's still being figured out.

    I think I heard someone say they were able to RNG standard seeds on their DSi. I'd like to know if anyone can verify that for me. Before anyone asks, I'm asking because I'm a lot more comfortable abusing on my DSi. It's actually a lot easier for me.

    Is it possible to find the parameters of the DSi?

    Are you pressing A on the DS menu one second before your target second? Because the game takes one second to get seeded so you have to start one second before.

    Also, are you holding B until you see the shooting stars?

    Yes and no. Btw you don't need to hold B that long. (I just hold it till "Pokemon company" disappears) I tested it out before with some random Pokemon and got the desired IVs.

    Really? Well, if that's true, then I have no idea what's wrong. But I would try holding it until the stars just in case.

    If I want to catch a flawless, shiny pokemon I have to advance to the target IV Frame and then try to advance the PID frame that contains what I want without passing my target IV frame? Also without knowing what PID frame I start/am at?

    If so, this sounds pretty impossible to accomplish without an Emulator.

    Ok, is something screwed up with the link given at the front page for the new rng reporter? In the vid it clearly shows him using the english drop down option, yet all mine show are fucking japanese ones?

    the japanese ones will work for the C-Link abuse... I was using it and I was able to hit the seed anyways.

    I meant to do some finishing touches on the real, final version and the guides tonight, but a family situation came up. Now I'm exhausted, so I'll finish it up tomorrow. In the meantime, you can screw around with the April Fools' version: http://eggmove.com/RNGReporter/RNGReporter941.zip

    It's real and has (most of) the features that will be in the final release, including non-Japanese standard seeds (formerly known as non C-Gear). Just remember it only works if your computer's date is set to April 1st, and that DSi searches still don't work.

    Also C-Gear seeds now have their initial frame listed as frame 1 by default, so you don't have to include the first two skipped frames in your math.

    There's bound to be an irony somewhere that one would have to mess with a computer's date/time as well as the DS's date/time to RNG for non c-gear abuse XD

    Eh I'll pass, I'll just wait till later today? I guess.

    bearsfan092, your Video made it sound like you can not use
    a stationary Legendary Pokémon for finding your DS parameters
    and that you have to use a Sweet Scent'ed Pokémon for that.

    I'm currently using Kyurem to find my DS parameters, since his IV's
    are really easy to narrow down. Can I do that as well, or will I have
    to use a Sweet Scent'd Pokémon? Are they generated diffently?

    When I was helping someone find their parameters, we used Terrakion as a stationary Pokemon. The parameter finder never found any results, so we switched to Sweet Scent, which worked. However, that was a single case, and it might end up working (user error happens a lot in RNG abuse). Give it a shot.

    Sweet scented Pokemon are also more universal since not everyone still has legends left on their game.

    Yeah, you can use a Legendary to find your parameters. I've used Cobalion.

    Well obviously you didn't hit your seed or you didn't hit your frame. Remember the Timer0 value can change a little bit, which is why I recommend doing the parameter process several times to see what's your most common value.

    The great thing about Standard abuse is that if something does go wrong, it's as simple as reloading your DS and hitting down to the second. No big deal.

    Um, I have a question. I've been trying to get a HP Electric Vanillite. I followed all the directions in this guide. -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M26PvryQIA&feature=feedf

    But it seems that I can't get a match to any of the IVs when I turn on the C Gear and catch the Pokemon. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    A common mistake that people seem to be making is that because I set my DS clock 2 minutes before my target, others assume that they should too (why is beyond me). You only set the DS clock before your target only as far as EonTimer/ZomgTimer tells you. If that's not the problem, there's some sort of user error going on. Make sure you're sweet scenting in an NPC free zone.
