    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.

    i did calibration 2 times,using the same time and got C7F twice should i do it more like about 10 times or so,also when you do a key press combo do you hold down that key untill you see the nintendo logo and then let go right.

    Yeah. Really you can hold it as long as you want. Fiddle around with it.

    Also, it can't hurt to do calibration like 2 or 3 more times, but it sounds like you've got some freak (possibly user based) error.

    Actually, my frame is higher than 3. (It's 9) I've been advancing the frame by walking 6 steps in tall grass. Does that do something weird?

    You need to walk 256 steps with 3 Pokémon in your party or 128 with 6 Pokémon in your party.

    How do you know it's always 6 steps? Unless you happen to always be ambushed by a wild pokemon at 6 steps, in which case, wow.

    Besides, walking in grass doesn't advance the IVRNG. However, I'll bet there's an NPC advancing the IVRNG. This is why you find a quiet zone and use a sweet scenter. Follow the instructions please.

    I thought that when you're in tall grass it advances the frame by one...

    EDIT: I'm not in an area where there's moving NPCs. (Or at least there are no moving NPCs I see...)

    That's for the PIDRNG frame. 128 steps with X Pokémon in your party advances the IVRNG frame by X.

    If I am not getting the IVs I want (they're supposed to be on Frame 1) for Standard Abuse, how can I rectify the problem? Like, I'm supposed to have a 31/31/31/x/31/31 on Frame 1, April 24 at 00:33:55 and holding Y. However, whenever I try the spread I never get the IVs I want. Any ideas?

    If you hit the same date\time\timer0 on a DSi over and over, you still will get the same seed, but the problem is nobody can predict seeds on a DSi. Not even the Japanese have figured this out.

    Try redoing your parameter search with the IVs you keep getting instead, it'll give you an idea of what's happening. Just remember to select Y in the Held Button combo box.

    I've tried doing this, and putting the seeds I can get from button combinations to see if there are any good spreads. There are a lot, but nearly all of them are on high frames and are not worth it. You can probably use it for breeding if you want though.

    Timer0 is being an asshole.
    I know it's not an important question, but does anyone know
    a) why we can't predict it 100% (I get either C7B or C7C)
    b) what the math-problem behind that is? Is the value Timer0 assumes
    dependant on your seed and not vice-versa? I'm comfused as to why we
    can find all other parameters precisely, but not this one.

    Quick question dudes, is the Zorua in Castelia City considered a "Gift Pokemon (Not Mystery Gift)" or would it be considered stationary?

    This is a hardware parameter, not a software one. It has nothing to do with what seed you hit. We can't predict it 100% because it's based on performance variables.

    The default range should eventually find something for you as long as you're using a DS lite/brick and a retail cart.

    When RNGing with a Standard abuse do we have to input the ID and SID? And if we do how can I find that?

    Shininess is based on those numbers. You wont get correct PID prediction either, but since you're not looking for shiny, it doesn't matter.

    Err, so I have to RNG for it treating the "Trainer warped to Entralink" part as if I were about to activate my C-Gear on a usual RNG, and then, if I want frame 30, to advance my frame to 9 by the forest already, and then talking to Torchic? Is that so?

    The default range isn't picking anything up for me either but I've just started using a rom for the purpose of cloning.

    Does this mean I need to start using my cart again or is there an adjustment I need to make when configuring for a rom?

    I assume you mean a flash cart? If that's the case, then the values vary a lot from cart to cart. The timer0 also varies a ton on most flash carts.

    I'm getting wacky results when I'm re-calibrating

    1st Test:
    Actual Seconds: 1
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 6
    Timer 0: C7F

    2nd Test:
    Actual Seconds: 6
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 6
    Timer 0: C7F

    3rd Test:
    Actual Seconds: 16
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 6
    Timer 0: C7E

    4th Test:
    Actual Seconds: 16
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 6
    Timer 0: C7F

    5th Test:
    Actual Seconds: 31
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 6
    Timer 0: C7E

    Should I use any of these?
