    I found an error in the encounter table. in castelia city (location 1, in the table) it says that jigglypuff appears at level 15 and 16 with encounter slots 2 and 6 respectively, but it's wrong. it should be pidove, not jigglypuff.

    If you aren't getting the right IVs, that means you're missing your standard seed. So, you're either missing your timer0, your target time/date, or your keypresses. I would guess that you're missing your timer0 because in BW2 timer0 is always the main problem... but also make sure that you're entering the game one second before your target time.

    If timer0 is the problem, just keep trying to hit your seed and you should eventually hit your target timer0. If you keep getting the same IV spread that isn't your target, find out which timer0 you're hitting using the adjacent seed tool, and use that timer0 in the time finder to find a new seed.

    Wanting to re-touch on my post and add a visual aid. Specifically this is the error message that i get when I try and close out of the RNG Profiles window:

    http://i395.photobucket.com/albums/pp39/Neji021/RNGBS.png

    Because of that I'm not able to find my seed or anything. The weird part though is that 2 days ago it seemed to work fine, but as of yesterday I started having this message pop up and hinder me

    Check your parameters.

    Your Timer0 is waaaaaaaaaaaay off the range for White 2 Parameters. You are probably using White 1. See figure below and recheck.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, you have a Timer0 of C91, which is, again, out the range for White 2 Timer0 range of 10E0-1130. To add to what PoJ has said, even if you get the right nature, ability, gender, or even shiny-ness, as long as you do not get the correct IV's, you probably have missed your seed. Other factors why you do not get the IV's correctly is the IV frame, which will never advance unless you walk 128 steps with x number of pokemon in your party. x is equal to the number of IV frame advancements made when you walk 128 steps.



    tl;dr

    Your Timer0 = C91
    W2 Timer0 range = 10E0-1130

    Wait, so you can actually rng fill all the hollows and then carefully select what appears in what?

    Yes, you can do that. But you don't fill them and then choose what appears separately, you do them at the same time.

    As a follow-up to my own question, Lati@s is considered a Stationary Pokemon, near as I can tell anyway.

    Explanation (open)

    Seed 5593448499CA4CC4
    ID 12752
    SID 7748
    Stationary Pokemon, PID Frame 222 will result in Shiny.
    Wild Pokemon, PID Frame 220 will result in Shiny.

    Going off of Chatot pitches, I stopped at frame 222, and got a shiny. If I stopped at PID frame 220, I might have gotten lucky via PID advancement by an NPC, but stopping at frame 222 I eliminate random advancement.

    Just wondering, when going for Lati@s, how does the step you take to get it to battle you affect the frames?

    Yes, as long as you do them in the proper order.
    It doesn't, unless the NPCs move during that time.

    Isn't there a chance of a PID advancement when stepping, even when not on grass?

    not in this particular case. The only PID advancements are from the Youngster in the Doubles Grass.

    Hi,I'm currently struck in BW2 rng method. I will list down what did i do and hope anyone can help me identify the steps i've done wrong maybe.
    Right now i'm now wanted to do wild pokemon rng.

    For calibration
    1. I brought along a sweet scenter (Foongus)
    2. I found a spot in victory road with no npc and items lying around. Save the game there.
    3. I restart my DSlite and set to 10/12/2012 05:30:25 and restart my ds
    4. I press A when the second reach 25 sec and let it load (without pressing anything) till the game freak screen up
    5. Once the screen is up, i press A all the way till the game load my saved game.
    6. I sweet scent immediately and catch a pokemon
    7. Copy down the nature, habits, stats and calculate the iv

    I Repeated step 3-7 for around 20 times to confirm the results -> Here lies one problem, different pokemon i encounter give me different iv values but the same pokemon give me same iv (E.g. 10XPiloswine i encounter all have naughty nature, hp 111, atk 78 and 12X Delibird have rash nature, hp 106, atk 57for example)

    Qn 1: Is the calibration on the right track?
    Qn 2: For BW2 after press A at the right second i notice that after the game freak logo appear the time taken to press A also affect the pokemon that you will encounter. E.g. When you see Zekrom shadow count 1 sec then enter game you will encounter delibird if 2 second count you will encounter piloswine. I'm getting so confuse, is it i have to wait for all the animation load finish instead of only stopping at game freak screen?

    For actual RNG
    1. I just take this 3 result and generate a list of seeder and tried them all
    2. For example: i gotten Frame 1 01/13/2012 05:30:19 i enter the game at 01/13/2012 05:30:18 <------ is this correct?
    3. I sweet scent and caught a pokemon but that pokemon doesnt match the iv stat i wanted to generate.

    Sorry for the trouble and thanks in advance if anyone could solved this problem i'm facing =)

    The Gift Eevee in Castelia City can never be female. If the PIDRNG lands on a frame that generates a female Eevee, it will skip to the next frame.

    @kandayuu, Timer0 is probably fluctuating a lot. It's a known problem in BW2, and something you need to be aware of. Also which DS are you using, a DS Lite, DSi, or 3DS?

    No, you just have to try more. Figure out which Timer0 value is most common, and use that one.

    Breeding in BW2 is impossible though, for unrelated reasons (there's a bug in the game's breeding code).

    Can the gift Eevee still be shiny? And the gift turtle/archeopteryx too?
    And are there NPCs that make getting a shiny really difficult in any of these buildings?

    All three can be shiny, and there aren't any WNPCs in the Museum at least (BW2 only, in BW there are).

    Is there any guides for BW2 calibration? I cannot seem to RNG at all in Black 2.

    Ok, so I'm trying to RNG the Azelf on Route 23 and I'm a little bit confused as to what RNGReporter is telling me that I had hit. I know its a stationary pokemon and that there are NPCs (which usually advances the PIDRNG frame by 4 for me if I have to use Chatot [which i did]). Here's my parameters for the search:

    http://i.imgur.com/eGFHx.png
    http://i.imgur.com/MyqWY.png

    I ended up getting a non-shiny terrible Azelf instead, so I plugged in my time into the Adjacent Seed Tool to compare results. The problem is, it says I hit frame 3 of a nearby Timer0, when I advanced the PIDRNG frame 67 times with Chatot alone. Here's my find:

    http://i.imgur.com/3TfDv.png

    Any idea what that means?
