    I'm using a DS Phat with FlashMe v8a, which I believe is based on the official v3. It turns green when I use the Pictochat method, at any rate. I fluctuate between C7F and C80 whether or not I have a button held.

    I also have a v5 DS Lite that I haven't done any calibrating on, but it seems you've got plenty of data points there, anyway.

    Again. What do you mean he could walk the steps before entering Victory Road? Aren't there wandering NPCs outside?

    In the main form right click on a generated PIDRNG frame. Choose calculate Encounter Slots. It will tell you all the encounter slots in a popup and give you a link to a table for all the encounter slots. Find what type of encounter it is and look at the number for the slot. Then look at the table where you are trying to encounter the pokemon and see what pokemon appears on that slot.

    I tried another Seed under the "Find ID Seeds." This time I went with:

    Seed:196D84AEBB80B085
    Date: 5-14-2011 00:33:38
    Frame: 46
    TID: 24638
    SID: 02278
    Button: None

    Ended up getting a Trainer ID of 18911. I put that in the TID box and a seed did come up with a Frame of 43. So I figured, it must be 46-43 = 3 No's to Juniper. Tried that and I did not get the Trainer ID 24638. I'm not really sure what else to do here. A little help would be great (although I know you guys have been fantastic already).

    Anybody? I am drowning here. I'm sure I have misunderstood one of the steps. Probably #5 in Bond's tutorial.

    Will RNG Reporter ever have the search functionality to search across multiple months? It gets pretty annoying to not get any seeds in a month (considering how long a search can take) and have to start it all over again with a new month.

    On the main window of RNG Reporter go to Method 5 PIDRNG. Enter your full seed and ID/SID. Check off the shiny only box and make the encounter type Wild Pokemon. This should bring up all the shiny frames within that seed. Right click on the frame you're aiming for, and press Calculate Encounter Slot. Next to Sweet Scent (Grass/Cave), it will have a number from 0-11. You match that number with the encounter slot table which is on the bottom of that page. You just click on the version you have, then look for the area you're doing this at. The first pokemon is 0, the second is 1, etc.

    To do Shiny Abuse, do I need my SID? Is there any legal way to find my SID?

    In addition, I've been breeding flawless eggs -- or at least trying. I need to set the IV frames to 8/8 min/max, correct? Also, I've been picking up the egg from the daycare man and got the same IVs twice. To be expected, correct? But this can be altered by Saving? I saved once and picked up the egg again. Same IVs, different Nature. If I save enough, will the IVs change (the inheritance, that is)?

    Yes, to shiny abuse, you need your SID.

    To find it is 2 ways: AR or Pokesav. Pokesav will require a Flashcart and ROM. However, there are so many English ROM's and no Pokesav for Gen 5...so you may have to find somebody w/an AR?

    So I can't do it legitimately either way? That's a bummer.

    If you started the game on a DS or DS Lite, and you know the rough time at which you started it, you can use your DS parameters to find a matching starting seed (and thus deduce your SID). If you started it on a DSi or 3DS, you'll have to wait until their seeding values are found.

    The Trainer Card has the hour and minute, correct? Could I guess my way with altering the seconds till I hit something?

    Gen V Pokesav exists. A quick Google search will find it.

    I think the trainer card only has the date. PPRNG (the Mac program) has a function specifically for this; if it's not in RNG Reporter, I could find it for you if you give me the date, rough time, and DS parameters.

    Ok...that is different.
    But good luck trying to find a workable ROM.

    Now then...how exactly do you know (or kind of) know when the timer hits zero and it is ok to start the game and turn on the C-gear? Are you looking at the 1st number? Or all the numbers together?

    Ok I found a problem with breeding.

    I MIGHT be not hitting my seed but Im pretty sure this is not the case.

    Whenever I try advancing the PID frame by saving I get the wrong spread...

    any ideas on how to fix this?

    Been looking at the first page of this thread. Is it possible to RNG abuse for a shiny wild pokemon using the C-Gear method? If not then is it possible to RNG abuse using non C-Gear without using an AR for MTIVRNG?

    It's actually quite simple to do regular seed abuse not for shinies. I myself haven't figured out how to correctly do shiny abuse for normal seeds so I can't help you there.

    Is there an easier way to find shiny egg PIDs than checking each individual seed in breeding (BW)? The nearest shiny frames in the time finder don't seem to have any correlation with the breeding frames.

    I had the same problem yesterday. Try putting that new TID you got from saying 3 No's into the TID box and see what frame you get. If I'm not wrong, you're probably hitting frame 47 after 3 No's so try 2 No's instead.
