    I thought that +6 was part of the "+7" in "Initial+Advanced+7".

    Because my first attempt and thought process was:

    42 (Starting Frame of Seed / Initial) + 2 (Saves / Advanced) + 7 (6 from Champion + 1) = 51 (Shiny PID frame)

    So are you saying it's "Initial + 6 + Other Advances + 7"? Or that I'm supposed to be looking for a Shiny PID Frame on Frame 7?

    Just to make sure, while attempting to catch a shiny timid Litwick...

    Encounter type has to be "Wild Pokemon".

    And since starting PID frame is 48 and I'm aiming for 811, I walk 128 steps to get a PID of 304, turn 253 times for a PID of 810, then go to Chatot's summary for +1 PID, making a total of 811.

    Is this right so far?

    You're better off getting another chatot and just going back and forth between them. Walking/turning to get the PID isn't entirely predictable at the moment.

    I have a research document here, that I've been looking into the advancement. This is pretty much all we've got at this point.

    Oh, ok. Guess I gotta be a bit more patient with my future RNG'ing, then.

    What is the lowest possible PID frame to hit while RNGing a Roamer. Im finding spreads that are between 450-600 that Id like to hit.

    I have read the best place to RNG it is by starting in the house and not out in the rain right in front of the encounter spot. I know that starting in the house and RNGing it from there will result in 600-750 roughly for the PID frame- is there a way I could lower that and still hit my shiny frame?

    I aplogize if this sounds ridiculous but Im just trying to understand the process for the roamer.


    Also, I have heard that snow and regular rain can stack with roamer rain?

    I want to breed a Magnemite from Ditto + Magnemite. Ditto will be holding the Everstone. (Breeding will be done in my White Version.)

    I was going to input the two parents' IVs under the "5th Gen Shiny Egg finder" tab, until I realized a technical problem. Which one is the mother / father, considering they're both genderless and Everstone no longer has to be held by a female. O_o?

    In all instances where Ditto is breeding it is the Female unless its being bred with a Male.

    you better familiarize yourself with the PID%6 method and must have tons of patience.

    Thanks, I have skimmed over PID%6 but I still dont understand it all that much. I did notice that there is a way to set up reporter to do it for you?

    If you don't mind me asking... what happens when Ditto is paired w/ a male? (since it seems confusing that with Ditto + male, Ditto is the father and the male is the mother... if I understood you correctly)?

    I think he mistyped. It is the male when paired with a female.

    Ditto is the opposite of the other in any normal scenario. I'm not sure of your magnemite case, but I would have no reason to doubt nodice's answer.

    I meant that if the Pokemon is genderless or a male, Ditto is the mother. However if the Pokemon is female, then Ditto is the father.

    Sorry I mixed up my response before!

    "Nidoran or (Illumise/Volbeat) species is not determined by Gender Ratios when breeding.
    It is listed in the breeding outputs for both breeding methods."

    Does this mean I can get a Nidoran M (if my seed yields one) with the DW ability if I only have a female dream world Nidoran F?

    I have been trying to find a seed for a Korean breed I'm attempting at doing, but it seems as if the egg finder is broken, or I am a complete idiot and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    I am using an emulator, so keep that in mind.

    So I'm looking for a spread that is 31/HP_E/30/31/31/31.
    My parents have that spread, I've setup everything the way it's supposed to. My DS parameters are correct. When I try to abuse for the seed using the time that RNG reporter gives to me. I do everything correct but I haven't been able to hit any of the listed seeds. Yes I know there is another timer0, but that's not the problem in this case.
    I look at the seed I'm hitting it seems to be consistent, changes every now and then. So I know it's not my timer0, as just to see if I was doing things correctly. I went to parameter search, as I knew my parameters already I set them to what they would normally be.
    I set the date to what I was abusing for, same with the keypresses. Along with the first IV frame on the seed I kept getting. It says I hit the correct time, and the correct keypress combo yet I didn't ever hit the seed that RNG reporter's shiny egg tab said I should get.

    Is there any way to fix this? As I remember using this feature just a short while ago and not having any problems.

    I have been able to hit Wild Pokemon seeds almost first try, every time.

    zf: duh

    wz: you can check what seeds you are hitting on an emu. also, try parameter finding by using your target seed, it could be that the Shiny Egg output of seeds is wrong.

    still not yet implemented:

    I have been checking with the RAM Watch. I've been abusing on it for a little while now. I've done wild abuse, Cave Spot abuse, and 1 breed before. All on my Korean.

    It seems as if everything but the Shiny Egg Output works fine with the Korean versions. I guess I'll just have to wait until OD releases the version that fixes it.

    Thanks Kaphotics!

    This roamer rng is rather very annoying lol. Ive found out what natures i hit after 0 5 and 10 chatters but yet i just cant seem to find a pattern. I dont want to give up cos ive spent loads of time on this already but i just really dont know what to do :( lol

    I've been RNGing shiny 5th gen eggs easily for a while now, But I just got a new computer and downloaded rng reporter(same version I had been using) and I keep getting 0 results. All I have done since downloading RNG reporter is open up the time finder and type in my parameters in the 5th gen parameters setup tab, and them do many 5th gen shiny egg searches. It is entirely possible I'm just being stupid and missed something but I have and am still searching for theses obvious mistakes.

    It sounds like you may have forgotten your SID. If the SID is listed as 0 it will return 0 results and it isn't required when you set up your parameters.

    Nope, I've triple checked my SID.

    Only other thing I can think of then is keypresses. If you have those turned off that could be it. Sorry, can't think of anything else.

    I've never used keypresses before and its always worked. I tried searching for my past RNG seeds and any natures and it still hasnt worked.
