    No.

    (Well, theoretically there is a possibility, but the chances are so small that it doesn't matter.)

    But there are plenty of different seeds that will give the same nature / IV / shininess / ESV / whatever results.

    Thanks, it was just my OCD kicking-in...

    Another question...

    I have gotten the ID/SID combo I wanted and I chose frame 62 to be the shiny frame as shown below.

    [​IMG]


    However, when I put these ID/SID combo on RNG Reporter's main window, I get frame 59 as the shiny frame.

    Is this a bug? Please help.

    The shiny frame will change depending on which Encounter Type you put in the main window. It's always kinda close by. You gotta abuse specifically for which Encounter Type you want to be shiny.

    When are the Latis twin IV's set? when you first meet them or when you engage in battle?

    If I want to RNG them, should I save at the entrance of the Dreamyard or one step before Latias engages in battle?

    Everything should be determined when you interact with them before the battle. So save one step before the battle.

    Where is the best place to find your parameters for BW2? Like in BW1 we had that part of victory road, but the cave has changed. Is there a place with no NPCs, or at least doesn't have WNPCs?

    NPCs are irrelevant for parameters - Victory Road was only a good choice because it had high-level Pokémon and was easily accessible. Anywhere with high-level Pokémon works fine, and if you can use Pokécheck or some other means of getting exact IVs, you can do it anywhere at all.

    Another (hopefully quick) question, because I'm a hopeless newbie to this - when we're using sweet scent to find a wild pokemon to determine and enter its IVs, is the time that we're supposed to record the time that the button was pressed to activate sweet scent, or the time when the actual encounter started?

    I guess you're right because now that I think about it the WNPCs advance the PIDRNG frame which wouldn't affect the IVs

    Ah... thanks for mentioning this. I just checked mine and the same thing happened. I had picked frame 115, and when I plug in the TID and SID it gives me 112 as the shiny frame, which is not synchronization. If you'll notice both of ours are off by exactly 3! I have no idea what that means though.

    Neither, it's the time you pressed A to load the game from the main DS menu.
    Perhaps you selected the wrong encounter type?

    I generated everything set as "wild pokemon" as it's what the guide i was following told me to do. When i change it to "stationary pokemon" it changes to frame 114. Still not the frame I selected, however it at least is synchronizable.

    As almost any wild pokemon can be bred, I think I'm OK with that. I'd have to do it in B&W 1, but that's an easier game to RNG manipulate, so I'd probably end up doing that any how.

    It really doesn't make much of a difference, you can get anything shiny without RNGing your ID/SID in BW2 anyway (there aren't even roamers to worry about).

    i'm not sure if this should go her eor in the simple question thread, but

    can anyone explain the whole breeding thing to me in bw2? i mean i know you can't do it, but i've scoured the internet and i can't find an actual explanation as to why, and now i'm overly curious

    i know it's because of the new egg mechanics but is it a glitch or a mechanic change or what?

    Which Pokemon Centers have no wanderers in BW2? Is it just the E4 or are there others?

    It's a glitch, basically the RNG seeds normally but they accidentally made it get overwritten by another seed from when you first created your save file. You can find some of the technical details in the research thread.
    It's been a while since I've done a BW2 Wonder Card, but IIRC Nimbasa is safe, and I think the E4 actually isn't.

    Theres like a million NPC's close to the daycare now so your frame will go all over the place, also the first egg you receive when you start up your game is always the same for some reason, maybe its a glitch or maybe they did it on purpose as a way to combat RNG'ers.

    I recently downloaded PPRNG on my new computer and tried to use it to RNG my Genesect on Black 2, but it didn't work. I found my parameters via the Unova Link method (timer0 was 1103-1106), and found a good spread, did the steps to advance the frame, but didn't get it right any of the times I tried. Am I doing something wrong? Or did I not find all of my timer0s?

    PPRNG issue.

    I'm using PPRNG 1.14.2 and having Dream Radar issues.

    Version: Black 2 (English)
    Memory Link used
    DS Type: DS Lite
    MAC: 00-21-47-30-76-A6
    Most reliable Timer0: 1105
    VCount: 82
    VFrame: 6

    RNGing a Sigilyph. I put in Type: Non-legendary, Gender female, Ratio 1/2 female. Slot 1. Timid nature, Hex flawless. I get:

    Date: 2012/10/08
    Time: 00:52:14
    Timer0: 1105
    Buttons: Dn-Rt + B-L
    Frame: 27
    Characteristic: Mischevious
    Seed: 5D6510F46B093AED
    PID: F65B7A04

    Problem: I hit my target date and time, and run my Unova Key link by the Adjacents searcher and I am getting totally different things. I don't mean off by 6 frames or anything, I mean there are no adjacents no matter how I adjust the settings, and the Parameter Searcher says that my results are for totally different Timer0/VCount/VFrame combinations.

    Potential issues:
    *I did not input a Trainer ID or Secret ID into the program at all. I figured those were just for shinies and I don't care about that. Is it important for Dream Radar?
    *Noticing something weird... In the Dream Radar Seed Inspector, version is blank. When I open the drop-down, there is no option for English Black 2, and a blank space is selected. If I attempt to change it, the blank space disappears and I become unable to pick a proper version unless I pick the configuration again.

    Anyway, yeah... I am hitting the inputs right (Down-Right on the D-pad, B, and the L bumper all during the white-out load screen) and am confident in my timing, but it's not matching up.

    Thanks!

    how exactly did you advance the frame? Wondercards are determined by the PIDRNG. Additionally, it's very possible you were just T0 trolled.

    When using RNG 9.96, i do not see an option for BW2. Im trying to RNG a Heatran. Do i just chose Gen 5 IV's (standard seed) for the method?
