    Hold on hold on. You're not doing everything correctly.

    C/p the seed into the main window of RNG reporter and change the drop down to "Breeding (BW), click generate.

    Start at frame 40 and look for wherever Rash is. That's your initial frame. Now get some chatots, make a custom chatter then post back for the rest of the instructions.

    I'm trying to get the gift. Ok so basically with shinies I find my seed, get to that frame and then advance the PIDRNG. Do I have to do anything with the full seed on the main RNG page?

    Is the poster above correct with having the max frame to search at 200?

    Also how do O get the right nature? Is it set for the frame that'll be shiny? Which means I have to find a shiny frame with the right nature. Correct?
    I really appriciate all the help guys!

    Did you take note of the characteristics to determine what your PID is? And you already said it yourself, if there's mild rain it's somewhere in that 1500 range area.

    Can you please post a SS of your main window for RNG, seed and frames included? To advance the frame you'll need a pair of chatots or to save. Saving increases the frame by +1.

    Also, is Bold with overcoat on frame 42?

    I would like to ask, first time when you did no chatters (because you didn't had a Chatot), and now you didn't chatter but got a Bold? (Btw, wasn't bold the one you wanted?)

    I just want to thank everyone for their help. Because of all of you, I was able to breed flawless shiny female/male Ralts, a flawless shiny female Gothia, and a flawless shiny female Cottonee. Now its time to breed for a flawless shiny male Axew. Thank you all again for the help.

    Starting frame is 550-750 with no weather before the roamer arrives. With rain before the roamer arrives it's between 1500-1900. Snow is somewhere in between the two. Don't do it in rain. That's going to be very difficult on a DS. :/
    You need nature and characteristic to do PID%6. You could look for the nature sequence alone but the characteristics gives you more confidence that you've found the right starting frame.

    I'm not going to read this whole convo but it seems like you're trying to RNG an egg. There's no trial and error in it. You open the menu, exit the menu, grab egg and hatch it. Look for a match near your Calculated initial PID frame. The matching frame is your actual starting frame. Redo it and view Chatot's summary 'til you get to the PID frame you want. It's a 2 step process. First to find your actual initial frame then to aim for your target. Also stop resaving. Resaving changes the positions of the NPCs which changes your actual initial frame.

    Oh my, I managed to get a 31/31/31/31/31/31 Jolly Zekrom on my 3rd attempt of RNGing in 5th gen, including the calibration attempt (yay for 3rd and 4th gen RNGing experience). Thanks bearsfan092 for the videos explaining the process, ToastPlusOne for EonTimer and Mingot and Omegadonut for RNG reporter.

    ^You always have to walk the steps to advance the IV. Chatots are used to change everything else.

    Yeah I saw that after I posted so I took it out before someone noticed. Guess I was too slow.

    Is it possible to use C-Gear abuse for a shiny egg? I prefer it over the standard method because I'm used to it.

    I don't think c-gear method can get shinies, but standard method is very easy to understand and execute.

    No shinies with C-Gear abuse.

    I see... well time to learn something new.

    Edit: Whoops, I need to learn to read. I can't use standard method.

    Is there a way to make a very, very broad search timewise for a seed in 5th Gen? Right now I'm looking for a shiny Stationary with HP Fire, which is relatively rare; is there any way to search whole decades at a time?

    EDIT: I see. Thanks anyway.

    No because that would fry the living hell out of your computer.

    when going for a shiny egg, do i spam x the minute the season appears or do i wait until after it fades to spam x? and if an npc moves at any time, am i fucked?

    No, you have to account for moving NPCs by doing it twice. You first get your egg and see what PID frame you landed on. This tells you how much the NPCs moved you [usually lands you on 50~55]. Then you reset and do it again, but you to the appropriate # of chatters.

    And I usually start spamming X when I finish the c-gear options. Pressing X won't change anything, and it's better to spam it earlier than later. You'll get a more consistent rhythm and you most likely won't be off due to forgetting to press X.

    Finally reached my goal guys! Thanks so much! 31/31/31/19/31/0 Brave Golett with Iron Fist! And one more question. Is there anyway to use C-Gear rnging for breeding?

    I'm trying to catch a shiny Rufflet.
    Full seed is: 15D05F2B0436C14F
    IV frame 6 PID frame 196.
    ID 58371 SID 20686
    I'm at the Village Bridge to catch it since that's the only place with an Encounter Slot 4 Rufflet.
    I manage to get the correct IVs (31/31/31/21/31/31) each time but I believe something is wrong with my PID advancing. I keep getting a level 48 Docile Rufflet with the characteristic of "Somewhat vain." and ability 0. I believe my problem is the NPCs in that area. Is there any way to control them better? I believe I'm hitting a PID frame of 302 with my advances and all the NPC movement but I could be wrong. I'll be trying 106 less PID advances this next time.
