    Also, the 3DS clock doesn't have a second hand, so you'll have to keep track of the seconds through external means like a stopwatch. Otherwise, it's pretty much the same.

    Ok, I hit a dead end. I'm trying to RNG a shiny rotom through breeding.

    My results are:
    http://puu.sh/EBa0
    http://puu.sh/EBaA

    I'm using a flawed rotom and a flawless ditto, no items. Chattering once after loading the game (and bringing up the menu immediately) has given me several times a relaxed rotom (frame 56 imo), so chattering 28 times should give me the desired pokemon. However, I've been receiving a bashful one (possibly frame 72), the next bashful nature is at frame 112.

    I am currently trying to find out the results from chattering 39 times, but what am I doing wrong?

    Most likely you're hitting the wrong Timer0. It happens to everyone, there's nothing you can do but try again and make sure to be consistent with your button presses (i.e. press A at the same time during the second every time).

    Yes, and you also need a way to keep track of seconds since there's no second reading on the 3DS.

    Success!

    Thanks for the help, I'm using an old DS lite and the L/R buttons dont always work, I guess they were being recorded as pressed.

    Want to switch games (from White to Black)

    How do I save my old game's information when I RNG the other game on the DS without having to go through the calibration process again for the old game?

    I just write them down on a piece of paper .-. But if you're not like me, then you can use Reporter 9.96 which includes a profile manager :)

    Im currently trying to breed a flawless IV Deino. I don't have my SID yet so I only care about IVs. Its parents are a Ditto with 31/x/31/31/31/31 Ivs, and a Japanese Modest male Deino with an Everstone and x/x/31/x/x/31 Ivs. I tried 4 different times but none of them worked. I tried clicking the International/Everstone/Ditto buttons in different combinations but didn't see difference between the IVs. This is my first time doing eggs, Im not sure if the Min/Max Vframe and VCount are supposed to be the same or not. I saved in front of the old guy, started the game a second before the time, only pressed A, didn't turn the C gear on, and I talked to him right when the menu came up.

    All of the frames you saw require some sort of PIDRNG advancement. Get a Chatot (or optimally two) in your party and use them to advance from your starting frame to your actual PID frame. NPCs do mess with the PIDRNG so you will have to probably try a few times to figure out how many chatters you actually have to listen to.

    This guide seems to be pretty popular. And as that guide says, DSi/3DS RNG is almost exactly the same as doing it on a DS Lite, so don't worry about that.

    DSi/3DS abuse is pretty much the same as DS abuse, but have key differences.

    There's Bearsfan's video guide. Link here

    There's alsooo ProjectTitan313's guide, which looks good for beginners. Link here

    I wrote an RNG abuse guide that seems to be pretty effective in teaching beginners. Link here

    Hope any of these guides help.

    Just a quick question, can't seem to find an answer.
    Is RNGing for shinies possible yet in B/W2? Not sure if they use the exact same method for PIDs as B/W. If so, I suppose everything else would work the same?

    Thanks in advance~

    To the end user RNG abuse is the same except there are more Timer0s to worry about.

    Hi trying to find ds parameters on gamecart for black 2 via my dslite
    so far in game only beat first gym but was able to infa-red trade to black 1 gamecart
    i traded six pokes over but struggling to find ds parameters for any of them
    I'm using rng reporter 9.96 alpha 12
    I think I've just realised that soft setted rather that a hard set. but I have noticed two new? Boxes to tick one is just search min/max gstat and one box says soft set. So when finding my ds parameters should I hard set at start of new minute and do I need to tick those new boxes? Thanks in advance

    I'm trying to RNG for Thundurus in White, but I'm stuck on RNGing the Nature. Nearly every time it comes up Bold. I know I'm starting around 740 if I just walk out and spam A, but Timid is supposed to be 28 jumps away. But instead, it nearly always comes up Bold.

    Version: White
    Timer0: C7F
    Seed: C7ED5B5502AFBA76
    Date: 10/5/12

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I can't seem to get it to not come up Bold. Does anyone have and advice, because the nature just won't seem to change (unless I miss the Timer0 but that can't be helped)

    are you advancing the PID frames? You need to do that or you'll always get the same nature. The easiest way to do so is by hearing the recorded chatter from a chatot's summary, however, as you already saved inside the house, and if you can't do this; saving also advances the PID frame by one.

    Timid is supposed to be 28 jumps away (gotta edit my previous post because I already knew that), but every time I advance 28 times with my Chatot, I get Bold. With no advancement, I get Serious.

    have you tried doing one more chatot every time you tried? That's how I got about getting mine, if you're not going for a shiny one you'll get it in no time.

    Are you dead certain you are starting at 740? PID%6'd it and all?

    The only Serious -Alert to Sounds combination that comes up [in the 550-750 range talked about on the onsite guide] on RNG Reporter 9.95 is at 740.

    Okay, answer these questions please:

    Are you RNGing in Summer? (If yes, your range kan be under the 550 mark as well, I'm speaking from my own experience)

    What is your seed?

    I'll PID%6 from 400-1000 for you, just to be safe, 9.95 is bugged so I'll do it the old fashioned way.

    Timer0: C7F
    Seed: C7ED5B5502AFBA76
    Date: 10/5/12 (So yeah, Summer)

    It's bugged? That might explain why it's all bonkers...

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say you're at frame 457. The reason why I think this is that I pulled your seed through Researcher, and this is what came out:

    423: Serious + Alert to Sounds (seems extremely low.)
    457: Serious + Alert to Sounds
    516: Serious + Likes to Thrash About (RNG Reporter says Alert to Sounds)

    Which kind of sucks for you, because the first Timid frame is on 531..
