Hello, I'm new to RNG-ing and wanted to hopefully find the answers to a few questions about setting up parameters! I read through the original post and the BW2-related posts and had a few things I was unsure of, but apologies if they're rather obvious answers that I missed. Since my version of White 2 is brand new and I haven't played through any of it yet, is it possible to use the IV-method with your starter pokemon to determine parameters? Or do you have to use sweet scent with a wild pokemon? Since I don't have a Mac to use the Unova-link method, I was planning on using the IV-method in conjunction with Pokecheck to come up with results. I'm guessing it'll probably be a bit more difficult since I'm trying to get the parameters at the start of the game, but since I want to ID/SID abuse for a shiny starter my choices are kind of limited. Anyway, thanks in advance for any help!
