    I'm not sure...I personally use 9.96 alpha 17 so it isn't an issue to me.
    If that really bothers you, you may copy that down on a piece of paper and type it by yourself I guess.

    Edit: Or download the latest version of RNG Reporter ;)

    Really? That shouldn't have anything to do with the Reporter version. Are you sure you're selecting the Seed (Hex) box first?

    Ive pasted it into 'Seed(hex)' but not all of the digits of the seed has pasted. Is it supossed to do this or should i type the full seed manually?

    sry wrong function solved part of the problem

    Ok i set the stuff i wanted (nature, e.t.c) and a result came up. Since I selected gen 5 PIDRNG is the 'frame' column for the IVRNG or PIDRNG?

    Also how do i find the initial PIDRNG?

    And finally, under chatot pitch it says ' Mid(44)', does this mean that i use chatot 44times?

    are you doing this in the main page? if you're then you're doing it wrong. Just paste the seed and select the type of RNging you're doing, don't fill up stuff such as nature, ivs, encounter slot, etc. don't. The frame column is the PId. Click on "calculate initial PID"

    no, that just means how strong the chatter will sound in that frame. to calculate how many frames you need to advance use this formula [target frame]-[initial frame]-[the number of advancements that occur while you walk]

    I read Kaphotics saying somewhere that never advance the RNG by walking because there are step counters that advance the RNG.

    I experienced this when trying to get a Shiny Kyurem, a dustcloud was appearing and I blamed it for throwing out my calculations, after several tries I decided to check which frame I was hitting by capturing the Pokemon without advancing the PIDRNG with Chatot, used that number as my shifted starting frame, I substracted that ssf from my target frame to determine the amount of advances I had to do after I was in front of Kyurem.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. If you're walking in an area that has wild Pokemon, but you're not actually in the patch of grass / water, then the PID frame advances about every 20 steps. So, 6 advances came from the 128 steps and 1 from walking into the grass patch (walking in an area with wild Pokemon is not always 2, sometimes it's 1, I even heard it advances by 3 sometimes). I don't think the shaking patch had anything to do with it. But, those 7 advancements shouldn't be a problem unless you passed up your target frame :)

    Ok. I pressed the calculate intial PIDRNG button and the 'starting frame' value changed to 38 .

    Using the formula, do i do 110 (number in the nearby shiny column in the 5 gen time finder)-38

    or is there another step?

    Yes, that's right. That's how many PID frame advancements you need to do (unless there are NPCs; then you need to find your shifted starting frame).

    Edit: Click generate so you can see all of your PID frames.

    Yes ;-;

    I did everything correctly. I verified my seed (using Chatot), I advanced to the correct frame (also using Chatot), I walked and walked and WALKED and nothing generated. Absolutely nothing. No items, no pokemon. And I don't know why. Maybe it skipped me. Maybe the game hates me. Maybe the world was like "Hey, lets ruin Katherine's day because she SUX".

    PIDRNGing a shiny (capture)

    After a long time I finally hit the seed and PID frame twice (wellspring cave), I checked with the seed and the nature and iv's corresponded however it was not shiny -_-

    When generating the seed in the time finder, I ticked nearby. Shiny frames however I did not fill in the trainer and SID because I did not have a shiny pokemon to calculate the SID. Could this be the problem?

    That is most definitely the problem. You NEED YOUR TID and SID. There is no way around it.

    I don't know how much you use PPRNG these days, but there's a guide for Hidden Hollow generation abuse in the second post of the PPRNG thread.

    If you ever lose Pikatimer again, it's on the first page of the Most Generations RNG Help thread, you have to scroll down a bit. Here's the link (Idk if it works but it should).

    ares9090, do you mean the PIDRNG advancements Princess of Johto mentioned as well?

    Princess of Johto: Is that so? Did not know/see that before. O.o Seems I'll have to take that into account for future walk-arounds for advancing both frames.

    It's always worked fine for me; only thing I can think of is that you ended up on the wrong frame somehow. Did you try again?
    You absolutely need to enter your ID/SID to get any kind of shiny - by not filling those in, it searched for shinies as if they were both 0. Note that catching a shiny Pokémon will not help you in Gen 5, but you can use either an AR code or Pokécheck to find it, or if you can't do either of those things you can trade one of your Pokémon to someone who can.
