    Right so basically I need to hatch eggs until I get an adamant scyther, then level it up enough to get a clear iv spread and also mark down all the ev's too so it is accurate and then breed it with ditto with an everstone.
    I don't think im cut out for all this, it seems it can be quite time consuming. I just really want pokemon as flawless as possible ready for vgc 13"

    It is much easier to just download the parent Pokemon from Pokecheck. As long as it passes the legitimacy test on the site, then you shouldn't have any qualms with using them.

    Why do you need to level up the pokemon? Can't you just use the iv checker guy in gear station?

    The IV Checker in the Gear Station doesn't give you exact IVs, he just gives you an idea of how good the IVs are.

    Subway IV judge + Mistralton Pokémon Centre Hidden Power guy + Pokémon characteristic = least amount of level-ups needed for exact IVs.

    if they have IVs of 31, he tells you they have flawless IVs.

    probably RC up to level 30.
    take note of level 25,26,27,28,29, to 30's stats and listing them in IV Calculator assuming the above quoted post is done. im not sure if you can do it in the lower levels, i've tried something lower but i got some ranges. But starting at level 25 to level 30, gives fewer problems.

    What do button presses do? I know it changes the timer0 but how does it affect everything else?

    Like TheAgonist said, they have no effect on your Timer0. What they actually do is change the seed that is generated, giving you a lot more possibilities for every second.

    Ok now something is wrong, I did the exact same steps as when I hatched my eevee to hatch a flawless gible but I keep missing the mark...

    Edit: I realised I forgot to give the everstone to the gible... Heh heh...

    Hidden Hollow Pokemon can't be shiny. So no, Imposter Ditto isn't legal shiny.

    I'm having an interesting thing happening in White right now. I am attempting to catch a Skill Link Shellder for the Subway, and it's not going too well.

    I found a seed (under fishing) that was 31/31/31/30/31/31. I then used the PIDRNG and found a Adamant Ability 1 Shellder on frame 96. Starting frame was 39. My SSF is usually +/-3 for whatever reason, so I booted it up and did 60 Chatots. I found a Skill Link Shellder all right, but it was female and Calm instead of male and Adamant. I searched the entire PIDRNG, there isn't a female calm slot 1 ability 1 within 200 frames. Normally I'd pass it off as a timer 0, but the IVs ARE the correct frame. Does anyone have any idea what I've done wrong? I tried again and got the same female shellder.

    Reshiram/Zekrom, all Pokémon from Hidden Hollows and Entralink, and most (all so far) Wonder Cards. I think that's it, someone feel free to correct me if I missed anything.

    How Hard is it to get a flawless ditto? I've searched for seeds all the way up till 2032 and still haven't found any.

    Flawless non-shiny? Shouldn't be that hard. Add keypresses if you haven't and you should be frequently seeing multiple seeds in a single year, unless you're still using alpha 12 which had issues with fast seed searching.

    Which one is generally considered easier? RNGing DW pokémon in the Entralink or Hidden Hollow pokémon.
