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

    Is it possible to rng via flashcart on white 1?

    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?

    More details, such as the seed your using, parameters, step by step, etc.

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

    I actually changed the pokemon I'm trying for but I'm still having the same results. Does this help?

    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).

    ummm does the gen 5 tid/sid rng abuse work for shinies? i managed to hit my seed and advanced the frame the required amount, i did hit the frame i got the tid that i was supposed to get after doing so but the pokemon wasn't shiny while it said the starter was true.

    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?

    Are you aiming for a particular IV spread? If so then the reason you are getting different IVs is because you are not hitting your desired seed/timer0

    Well, you're probably not hitting your timer0, which would explain why the natures and IVs are different. There's also the chance there're wandering NPCs in the pokemon center you are; they can also be affecting the process.

    It's weird because in calibrating for my parameters, I've hit my Timer0 7/10 times (1104). And now in the actual RNG I am always hitting different seeds/Timer0.
    I'm in Castelia's Pokemon Center. I am using DS Lite. I guess I just have to try again and again

    EDIT:
    Ok now, I am starting to see light. I got a pair of IV spread/nature from Genesect which means I've hit my calibrated Timer0 twice in a row just now.
    I also found out that my starting frame should be 44, which RNG Reporter miscalculated to be 46. I guess I'm done experimenting. Now onto the real RNG.

    EDIT2:
    Finally. I got my Genesect. Hasty 31/31/31/30/30/31
    On to my 5th badge! Yay! :D
    Thanks BTW, Cereza and RedSpyda xD
