    So there is a feature somewhere for 5th gen egg inheritance?

    DANG!! I got it to work without my date being set to April 1st because of my security blocking that pop-up. But, I cannot generate any spreads...... :(

    Do you HAVE to use the KeyPress Combo you used when finding the Parameters to find the IVs?

    thanks for the tip ^.^

    and...that doesn't make breeding seem any less annoying... but I suppose it would just need some calibrating, just do it over and over again until you know the average amount of frames the NPCs advance when you did it as quickly as possible.

    though this may be difficult since the PID frame you start on is kinda random...

    ...Eh? You're not supposed to use a keypress when finding your parameters.

    But no, once you have your parameters you're open to use any combo.

    Can anyone find my DS Parameters for me? I need to download the .Net 4.0 framework thing in order for RNG Reporter to search, apparently, and since the computer with RNG Reporter installed doesn't have internet, I can't get the framework.

    I'm trying to calibrate with:
    An original DS
    English White version
    No key presses
    IVs: 18/21/25/22/23/21
    MAC Address: 00 09 BF C8 46 56
    4/1/11 14:19:25-30 seconds (I guess?)

    Thanks.

    Just wow.... alright then that means I can RNG this piece of shit roamer. Also, when finding parameters, I put none. So I guess I'm good. Thanks. c:

    you press the button the spread tell you to press, not what you used during the calibration

    How does one abuse their ID/SID this generation? Is it essentially the same as standard seeds, or is there a specific point that the ID/SID is generated?

    Is there a way of accurately predicting the nature/ability/gender spread?

    I've been searching for ages for a perfect Rufflet and although I get the right IVs, I can't get the right nature. I'm up to advancing the frame by 21 by saving and it's becoming a pain in the ass. If I could find the exact nature I'm looking for on a chart and just advance to it once instead of guess-and-check, I'd be willing to save 100 times if I had to.

    I've got my seed for my IV spread and have put it in the RNG Reporter but can't ever find the combination of natures I've run across. I've been using a Synchronizer and put that in, but I've never quite gotten it. Any idea?

    Bearsfan's video explains how to predict your nature. It's not perfect, however, and wandering NPCs in your "zone" will throw it off.

    Personally I dont use a sync, i never had success with it as it always screws up my IVs. When i dont use a sync i get my desired ivs 80% of the times and I just use the saving to get to my nature. However i do have trouble finding the natures on the method 5 theoretical nature list. I went through 2000 frames without finding my combination of natures. About where do the nature show up on? In bearsfan's video it was about 300, is that where around most should be or they can be anywhere? Since I cant find it that easily I just wing it by saving a different amount of times each time so I can see what natures I can get. This way I get the Ivs I want but nature is kinda up to chance.

    Sorry if these types of questions aren't allowed on this thread, but I heard that the RNG Reporter chizu (?) was developing for Macs is gonna be available this weekend. I checked the first page of this thread but found none. Is it already out, and if so, can someone direct me to a link? Thanks in advance. :)

    >=
    <=
    !=
    E
    O

    Yeah, I saw that (and fortunately, Victory Road doesn't seem to have wandering NPCs).

    Oh well, I'm getting a Chatot soon so frame advancement should be loads easier.

    Is RNGing a standing legendary (Terrakion) the same as RNGing a wild encounter (except talk to it instead of Sweet Scenting)?

    And as for eggs: How do you ensure a pokemon has 5 31's (not atk) AND the right nature AND an egg move? Will it just take a million tries?

    when using time finder, trying to find a perfect shiny egg seed, I tried checking the shiny only box and setting the max shiny frame to 1000, but when I copied the seed of one of the results to a method 5 natures search and a breeding (BW) search, I found no shinies in that range. Do these features work yet, or are they just forthcoming? I tried full seed and shortened seed.

    alright thanks and 1 more question. im attempting a capture C-Gear RNG but theres one small problem: the spread i want i on frame 4 and im wondering if i can use my syncer and still do it or if i have to use a sweet scenter to do it.

    Yes, you can have the syncer as your lead Pokemon and sweet scent with another Pokemon.

    The question I have is there a quicker way to advance your pid frame other than by saving/sweet scenting? I want to catch a shiny wild Pokemon but all my pid shiny frames for the corresponding standard seed are in the 1000 range.

    See the link in my signature. Hopefully someone will put a link to it from the first post when that gets updated with tutorials and other info.

    Yes.

    Get a Chatot (better yet, get 2) and record a cry for it. Everytime you view it on the status screen it advances the PIDRNG. Sweet scenting doesn't advance the frame.

    Have two Chatots side by side in your party. Record something with chatter. It will use the same for both so you only need to do it once.

    Everytime you go to Chatot's summary it will sound your recording and advance the PID RNG by one. Now you can just press up and down cycling between them both making sure to listen to the custom cry each time and rack up a huge number rather quickly.

    I used this method to get a PID frame of 1484 last night and it only took about 15 minutes

    So using Chatter with Chatot gives a reliable way to advance the PID now? Does this mean that we now have a reliable way to advance the frames for breeding IVs/Nature/Ability?
