    Is one parent holding an Everstone? The frames don't match up properly if not.

    Alternately, it's possible that NPCs are causing you to hit the wrong frame.

    Lapras is holding an Everstone like it should be, however in checking my held items I noticed that my Turtwig is holding a power item.

    I am guessing that is my issue as it probably interferes with the passing of IV's properly.

    That would be the problem, Power Items mess up inheritance.

    Indeed. Took the item off and hit the seed and frame the very next try and hit the spread I was trying for.

    Thank you very much for mentioning items. I honestly had no clue and never would have thought about it until you mentioned checking the everstone.

    In Black 1/2 and White 1/2, if you start a new game on a cartridge where you know the RNG Parameters for the previous game, are the RNG Parameters still in effect (Timer0, etc.)?

    Yes, the parameters remain the same for a given DS / cartridge combination when restarting the game.

    I am trying to rng a wild ditto. I have found the seed and found the initial PIDRNG frame to raise it to a frame that has encounter slot 6. Where ditto is located I cannot use sweet scent so does walking raise the PIDRNG? And am I doing things correctly?

    5th Generation RNG Reporter Wonder Card

    I was wondering if anyone else can help me with my issues as mentioned:

    Part One
    Part Two
    Part Three

    Also, to update, I now have the Keldeo Wonder Card, but I have attempted to obtain the actual Pokemon until I get this resolved.

    I do not know the answer to that... I am trying to figure this all out. The guides all appear to be overwhelming and none are written out down-to-earth. So, I am all for using whatever methods work. So long as there is an easy to approach set of instructions.

    That was the method used in the videos that you sent me.

    walking does advances the PID, but it is unreliable...your best bet would be to

    You can get rid of the fog to be able to Sweet Scent. Save inside the Giant Chasm, change the month to a different season, load the game, battle something. After the battle, the fog will be gone, so you can save again and then RNG it like any other wild encounter. Note that this works for all forms of weather, so you could use it to get rid of the sandstorm in the desert for instance.
    That's odd, it should be more up to date than that. This guide I've heard is easy to understand, though it's written rather than a video. If that doesn't work for you, I'm not sure what else is good, but maybe someone else has other ideas.

    Does anyone have a link to the latest RNG Reporter that's compatible with XP?

    Additionally, is there a guide on how to RNG Dream Radar Pokémon?

    This post explains how Dream Radar RNG works specifically in PPRNG, but the principals are universal. You can assume that RNG Reporter will be similar.

    So far I've extended the parameters, option set on DS/lite (because acekard runs on DS mode), and putting the exact IVs. I'm still not getting any results. Should I be also extending the ranges of the other stuff such as VFrame, etc? (Any specific ranges at least?)
    EDIT: Never mind, it's also Vcount.

    What is the point of filling up all 20 Hidden Grotto locations before attempting to RNG any of them? Slashmolder doesn't mention it in his guide, but I saw it in RainThunder's guide on RNG Forums.

    For that matter, which is the best guide to follow? Have the alpha updates to RNG Reporter since these 2 guides were written changed anything or added anything new for Hidden Grotto abuse?

    Thanks for that. It appear exceptionally easy, as does BW2 calibration. Now I just need the latest RNG Reporter to work for XP or a new computer, but that's out of my hands unfortunately.

    I'm really not sure if this fits into this thread, I apologize in advance if it doesn't.
    As I learned about the PID, there are many properties that belong to the PID. Ability, Gender, shininess (in combination with ID+SID), nature etc.
    I already bred a nice bunch of Pokés, not really caring about their PIDs. Today I noticed that if I breed a Poké that has been affected by everstone, the PID always stays the same (at given seed), even if I change the everstone nature.
    So my question: Does this mean that the PID does no longer contain the nature? Or is this only the case for breeding, meaning that wild etc. Pokés still show their nature in the PID?

    In 5th gen the PID doesn't determine the nature. Presumably this is to make MM + Everstone more efficient.

    If there are any open grottos before your target one, it complicates the RNG process. Having them all full means 1) you don't have to worry about what the order is and 2) you can RNG any grotto on a whim without having to go around and manually check all the others every time. The way Slashmolder's guide explains it allows you to RNG without having them all full, but also requires more prep work, especially if you're doing one of the higher-numbered ones.

    By "prep work," do you just mean examining all the Hidden Grotto locations before your target one?

    Does this mean that you suggest following RainThunder's guide?

    Prep work is basically checking each grotto to see which ones are occupied. But that can change every 256 steps unless you take 255 steps, stop, save, SR, then keep going.

    Where might I find a guide to RNG abuse in Black and White 2? Will it work with a 3DS?
