5th Gen PRNG Help / Info - Latest: RNG Reporter 9.96.5, PPRNG 1.15.0

So I've been trying to learn the RNG system, and I've successfully caught a perfect Terrakion and Ditto, but I've been trying to move to breeding, and I'm a little confused. I've read many guides and watched the bearsfan videos, but maybe someone can answer some specific questions for me (sorry if I'm just dense):

1) All I'm trying to do is get perfect IV spreads on hatched mons (well, I guess I need the correct nature and maybe an egg move or two, but I don't care at all about shinies). Do I need to pay attention to the PIDRNG stuff at all, or can I just use the regular methods I used to obtain Terrakion and Ditto, along with an Everstone for passing nature? All the guides to breeding seem concerned with both shininess AND perfection, so I'm a little confused as to which parts I need to pay attention to.

2) Are the "frames" that came up when I RNGed for Terrakion or Ditto different than the PIDRNG frames that you advance with Chatot's chatter? This is the impression I got from a couple guides, but again, I am a little confused.

And again, I apologize if these are dumb questions; I just ran into this stuff a few days ago and it's been rather difficult to process the huge bulk of information out there.

You have to worry about the PIDRNG if you are going after a specific nature, ability, and gender. It increments differently than the IVRNG. However the process is essentially the same as going after a perfect shiny.

Basically (and forgive any sloppy terminology):
IVRNG = determined by what time you start the game and what button combinations you use, derived from your starting seed. Determines IV spread. Increments by step movements mainly.

PIDRNG = determined by your initial seed (which also determines IVRNG). Dentermines ability, nature, gender, and shininess. Increments by just about everything, including NPC movement, Chatot Chatter, your character's movements.

Once you know your IVRNG, you can determine your PIDRNG as well as your starting PIDRNG frame (the main window in RNGReporter lets you determine the starting PIDRNG frame).



Chatot's Chatter is a reliable way to increment the PIDRNG (it increments the PIDRNG by one frame every time you listen to Chatter). But, keep in mind when breeding that there are wandering NPCs on Route 3 that will make things more difficult than capturing a wild Pokemon (they increment the PIDRNG almost randomly, but if you're quick/lucky you can get your egg with as few as 0-2 random PIDRNG advances).
 
hey guys can you tell me which file on the sd card should i copy to my computer and replace again when rnging dream radar, please.... thank you...

ps. can we expect a rng reporter that support us dream radar rng this week

You need to copy the top-level folder that is present on the card (on a Japanese 3DS, it is named 'Nintendo 3DS'), because the individual filenames are not readable.

This will copy all downloaded games, however, so it's best to work from a separate SD card when doing Dream Radar RNG so that you don't overwrite the data for your other downloaded games with older versions, etc.
 
I know it's too soon for anyone to have calculated the RNG process for Pokemon Dream Radar, but I have an idea. After you do the actual transfer, couldn't you start the game, and therefore the do the RNG abuse, on a DS, DS Lite, or DSi? Just a thought.

The frames you advance to breed are indeed the PIDRNG frames, but they determine the hatched Pokemon's stats, nature, Abillity, everything. Also, you can't use the same method at all. You have to go to the Egg section of the Time Finder. As for shininess vs. perfection, it's really all the same process; shiny frames are just way more rare. You will have hatch the pokemon, then see if its IVs are consistent with what is in RNG Reporter (use the guy in Gear Station to tell you which, if any, IVs are perfect; 2 of them will be inherited from one or both parents). If you hit the wrong frame (you probably will), you will have to hit the seed again, but decrease the number of advances you do based on the frame you actually hit. I hope this clears things up.

PPRNG has been updated to version 1.14.0, including initial support for the English language versions of Black 2 and White 2 on DS and DS Lites.

Please see the first post of the PPRNG thread for details, a download link, and links to tutorials on the new Black 2 / White 2 features.
 
If I want to breed an egg for someone else to hatch on their game, and have it hatch a shiny Pokemon, can I just use their ID/SID combination in RNGreporter's time finder or do I have to input their DS parameters as well?

Since you're doing the heavy lifting (i.e. breeding it in your cart, and thus using your parameters), all you need is their TID/SID combo.
 
Be aware that you cannot use international parents if you intend to trade the egg to hatch on another game file - MM takes YOUR TID/SID into account when rerolling the PID.
 
So I finally got around to getting Keldeo, and I'm trying to get a good one through rng.
I can hit my seed most of the time (I know this from sweet scent encounters), but I'm having trouble with the whole frame thing. I also don't really understand how Timer0 works. It changes between C7F and C80 with no keypresses. I figured it would be a fixed value since it's in the ds parameters, but nope.

To hit frame 63 on the seed, I'm doing this:
Target - Initial - Starting + 1
= 63 - 1 - 8 + 1 = 55

- Withdraw 5 pokes (+35)
- Deposit 1 to have 5 in party (I'm under the impression frame only increases when WITHDRAWING pokemon)
- 4*128 steps (+20 = 55)

I figured this was correct for IVRNG, but I haven't yet received Keldeo with the IVs I want. Am I doing this correctly and just messing up hitting the seed or am I doing something wrong?

As for PIDRNG, would any of the above stuff affect it? I figured running around the pokecenter with no NPCs walking around would be alright, as I'm under the impression that your frame only increases when walking/turning in an area with wild pokemon (ie NOT a Pokecenter). I used my Chatots to increase frame, but I honestly have no idea how close I am to getting the Poke I want.

Any help would be great, or confirmation that I'm doing it correctly and just not hitting my seed.

Wondercards frames work using the PIDRNG, not the IVRNG.
 
We basically have to brute force it so it's just waiting on number crunching. For the Japanese games it took a week or two. Hopefully it'll be faster this time now that we know more.
Once DSi/3DS seeds are figured out, will there be a new version of RNG Reporter (likely an alpha) released shortly that includes support for them? Also, what about the ability to find DS parameters via the Unova Link like in PPRNG?
 
RNG in Black2 and White 2 (English games)

Hi everyone... I'm somewhat new to RNG, since I first learned it in Pokemon Black... Then the gen4 games...

As for my question, is RNG of eggs possible in the English games? I know that a bug was present in the Japanese black2/white2 that replaced the seed with the one generated when creating your character... Is this still present in the game? (prays not)
