5th Gen PRNG Help / Info - Latest: RNG Reporter 9.96.5, PPRNG 1.15.0

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?

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.

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.
 
when RNGing eggs, is the starting frame always 8 or do u need to calc the starting frame as with the PIDRNG button?
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.
If I RNG my ID/SID with wild pokémon as the encounter type, would the seed and frame generated work for starters and stationaries?
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.
 
What was it?



Did you search only on IV Frame 1 in Time Finder?
yea i did search on iv frame 1

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.
i used PIDRNG stationary no encounter slots shiny only and 31 at every stat except for attack...
ok thanks i ll try this today
 
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
