    What was it?

    Did you search only on IV Frame 1 in Time Finder?

    When you searched in Time Finder, did you use IVs (standard seed) or PIDRNG? If you chose the latter, that only allows you to RNG the PID. If you want both, you need to search IVs and check the nearby shiny box.

    How hard is it to rng the Cresselia on Marvelous Bridge? Are there any Wnpcs?

    Nope, you should be able to get it first try (first time you hit your T0, anyway).

    I'm currently trying to go for a perfect IVs shiny Joltik in Chargestone Cave in White, and I've tried a few times and it is shiny, but it doesn't have the IVs I want. What could I be doing wrong?

    I'm guessing you're using an IV frame other than one?

    You set method to PIDRNG. That's why you won't get your desired IVs. Search with Standard Seed method.

    But doesn't that not decide everything else? How do I search for both?

    That IS how you find both. Standard Seed method searches both for IVs desired and nature/gender/shiny/etc.

    Searching for standard seed just gives me no results for any good spreads. Wait thats a problem with my parameters or something right?

    that's because shiny seeds with flawless IVs everywhere are not as common; increase the number of keep presses and keep looking on different dates. You can also increase the number of advancements.

    The staff in Kyurem's room advances the PIDRNG, but there shouldn't be anything advancing the PIDRNG in the Regi's room.

    when RNGing eggs, is the starting frame always 8 or do u need to calc the starting frame as with the PIDRNG button?

    If I RNG my ID/SID with wild pokémon as the encounter type, would the seed and frame generated work for starters and stationaries?

    To clarify on that last part, you should only be increasing the Shiny advancements over on the right of Time Finder (where the check box is for finding a nearby shiny--it only shows up when that box is checked). Unless you want to be flailing around all day getting nothing and pestering us with needless questions, you need to keep the Min/Max IV frame to 1.

    No. The IV frame starts at 8, but Reporter handles that for you so you don't need to worry about it. The PID frame starts on ~40-60 just like with any other RNG.
    Potentially, but most likely with a different nature. Really, there's basically no point in RNGing your ID/SID for a particular spread anyway, you should be able to find any shiny spread within a couple of years at worst (except for starters, because at that point in the game you have no way to calculate a non-RNG'd SID).

    I am having problems RNGing Genesect in my Black 2.
    For experimental reasons, my starting frame is equal to my target frame, so I get Genesect immediately after starting the game. But I am always getting different IV spreads and nature from Genesect. I am supposed to get the same IV spread and nature, right? What causes these problems?
