    Virbank Complex (exterior). Though, they're like levels 10-12 :/

    If you choose to wait a little bit, you can do it in Castelia's Park, which are levels 15-18.

    Virbank Complex would probably be easiest if you trade over a ton of Rare Candies and a Sweet Scent Pokemon.

    I can't seem to hit the right seed for Reshiram. I was able to RNG Genesect, but following the settings in Titan's RNG Guide isn't working at all. I might take a step back, and redo all my calibrations. Or am I missing some sort of change?

    The seed period? Or just the spread you're after?

    If you're verifying by Chatot pitch neither Dragonspiral Tower (both B/W1 and 2) nor N's Castle (B/W1) has random PIDRNG advancements.

    I can't seem to hit the right spread in BW2. Have any of the settings changed, or should I keep following the guide and blame it on timer0 trolls?

    I had no problems doing so in BW.

    Is there a way to know what your PID frame is? I'm trying to catch a timid Borutorso(thunder genie), and do synchronizers work in this game for roamers?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Probably just Timer0. There are absolutely no RNG advancements in the area.
    Sync doesn't work on roamers. You would first have to hit the correct IVs, then you check PID via characteristic/nature.

    OK, Zekrom/Reshiram are shiny-locked, but can Kyurem in BW2 be shiny? Or did GameFreak shiny-lock Kyurem as well.

    I'm actually attempting to catch a shiny Kyurem to find out, I'll follow up with what I find out (if it hasn't been found out already).

    Kyurem can be shiny in all games (and, if you're curious, Kyurem-B/W retains the shininess).

    Is it just me, or for BW2 is the initial PIDRNG frame not matching what RNGReporter says it should be? I've gotten some extremely oddball results. Crazy things like the actual PIDRNG frame hit being +30 to +100 from what RNGReporter says it should be, without NPC interference even.

    Ahaha, no worries! Yea, when I used the transfer, the animation showed Landorus first, then the two Shuckles and the items. I can most certainly confirm that legendaries take priority for slot 1 and presumably so on and so forth.

    I think I've been having these issues too.

    Hey so I was having a problem in version 9.6.1 that I hoped would be fixed in 9.6.2, but it was not. After checking the development notes I found that the bug is known, the discrepancy between the main page and time finder frames for Wondercard. However it appears you do not know the cause and I think I have found it out. I edited my profile and unclicked the memory link checkbox and the discrepancy went away, the two frames matched. It appears the main page is not correctly taking memory link into account even in the black and white 2 button is checked. Hope this helps.

    I didn't have memory link checked and I still had the 2 frame difference so I don't think that's it.

    On another note, how much do the NPC's advance the PID frame when going for a shiny starter in BW2? Do I just need to do it trail-by-error and hope I save the right number?

    I give up RNGing a shiny Kyurem in White 2, I just can't get a consistent nature even when I can hit the same IV seed repeatedly. There must be some underlying cause.

    For example, seed 7E4BB60BF1219538. IVs are confirmed the same
    PID no advance = naughty nature (RNG reporter says it should be Docile)
    1 advance = Docile (+1 above Naughty, no problem)
    repeat, 1 advance = Impish (+2 above the previous test)

    To confirm though, you were able to get it shiny even if you were having trouble getting the natures?

    I can't confirm. Though if you really want a shiny Kyurem, it's easy enough to get one in BW1.

    at what point are kyurem-b's iv's set? is it when you engage in battle just after it has fused, when you cannot use pokeballs? or in a later battle (i presume you actually get a chance to capture it further on).

    The later battle, where you get the chance to capture him normally. When you capture him, he's just regular Kyurem at that point.

    I seem to be having some difficulty with RNGing on my White. This is not the first time I have RNG'd eggs, but it is the first time I'm trying to RNG a shiny egg with someone else's TID/SID combination.

    I seem to be having PID issues. Because my friend who is using the most recent of RNG reporter and getting the same results, I'm going to include all my calibrations in order to hopefully figure out what is wrong.

    Game: English White 1
    Version: 9.96 Alpha #16 (XP user) // 9.96.2 (a Friend's)
    Ds Model: DS Lite
    Mac Address: 1656CE9D5C
    VCount: 60
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 8
    Timer0: C7F / C80 (C7F is the far more common one, and the one used in the search)
    TID/SID: 03829 / 36751
    Friend's TID/SID: 47918 / 00036

    Seed: 04303E4E64211099
    Target Frame: 69

    Time Finder Screenshot
    Main RNG Reporter Window Screenshot
    Result of Frame 69

    Parents: Father & "Mother". Mother held the everstone.


    I am quite baffled at how this came to be about. I did my normal method of obtaining the eggs to get a SSF(chatter twice, then see where I end up). I had the characteristics/gender/ability/general IVs for two frames in this list, and adjusted my chatter count accordingly so I can hit it.(Had to 14 chatot flips, nothing too bad.) I didn't upload those fails to Pokecheck as I never had an issue where I'd hit the exact IV frame and got a different PID.

    Then, I hatch her. While I can't speak for her shininess as I was making sure I hit the right seed before I sent her off(probably wouldn't be), she certainly had the wrong PID and wrong gender. Her characteristic is also wrong. Only thing spot on were the IVs. I checked my adjacent seeds, and couldn't find anything like her.

    Is there something I'm doing seriously wrong to get that result? My friend who taught me how to RNG used the latest version and had the same hits as I did in that version. Also, I guess I'm forced to pick a new seed and pray for the best that I don't get PID trolled again?

    It's accurate. The problem is some places, such as the starting town, have a ton of NPCs advancing the PIDRNG very rapidly.

    Yep that's exactly it. I'm adding a memory link check box for the next version. I've been meaning to do that since alphas long ago but never gotten around to it.

    International breeding doesn't work based off the hatcher's TID it's based off your TID. Get parents from the same game and do normal breeding.

    That's the thing, I was getting somewhat random PIDRNG advances in an area (Kyurem's cave) that has no NPCs.
