    Well, technically, it advances once every 128 steps, but the step counter for the current 128 steps gets carried over with your save. So I'd strongly suggest that, when searching for a seed, you assume that you'll be advancing the IV frame that way at least once, and try to walk exactly 128 (or 256 if you need to) steps.

    So just to clarify, I walk to said cave and it took me 50 steps to get there and save. So when I set the date and get back into the game the counter for the 128 steps will start from 50 and not back from 0? Do we know when the counter is reset, or where it's at at any given time? Since I'll be walking MOST DEFINITELY would it just be a better idea to stick with advancing the PIDRNG this way or should I bring Chatot just in case? Although I don't see how that would work since as soon as you walk into the phenomenon you initiate the battle. Wow this seems a lot harder than I thought it would be.

    I should've known better than to post so close to the bottom with a question that I think very few will be able to answer.

    Yes, it is the exact same. I just RNG'd my ID about twenty minutes ago using the same exact process as I did in BW. You need to account for the additional Timer0 values, though.

    No. You're not counting where it was before you took those 50 steps.

    The only "reset" or way to know where it is (on a retail cart, anyway) is when the advancement happens and it starts counting another 128, which of course you can't reasonably find short of testing every step until you find the IV frame advanced. That's why we tell people to walk exactly 128 steps: it's the only way to know for sure how many times you've advanced the IV frame short of getting into your battle.

    ...Actually, that's why you should normally stick to IV frames of 1: because advancing the IV frame just isn't worth it when there's stuff like this to deal with, especially when you have the PIDRNG to advance, too, and you can get the same results without it.

    Bring a Chatot and treat the steps like a bunch of moving NPCs: make the same number of turns & steps, go for your target, find your Shifted Starting Frame, and adjust with Chatot.

    @Mo96, if you kill Thundurus, you can make it respawn by defeating the Elite 4 & Champion again.

    How many different Timer0 values is it typical for a specific cart to hit on each of the different models of DS?

    Mold Breaker is Ability 1.

    The Pokedex-IV checker option in Reporter showcases A0 and A1 for each Pokemon, so use that as a reference.

    Is it possible to RNG a flawless ditto in Giant chasm ( Plains)? You can not use sweet scent there and I do not really know any other way of RNGing wild pokemon :(
    The encouter slots are 3 and 6 for a ditto in B1, right?

    Right click -> Run as admin is about all I can think of.

    If that doesn't work, install it somewhere else. Like in your My Documents folder, or on the desktop.

    I always get a lvl 53 metang or a lvl 52 piloswine instead of the ditto to I am trying to RNG. I checked 3 and 6 only for the encounter slots and am pretty sure I am hitting my target time since I am using Eontimer. Would appreciate any help/.

    You're probably not advancing the PID, which controls the encounter slots. Paste the seed in the main page, calculate your initial PID frame, look for a frame that has the encounter slots for ditto, advance discordantly.

    If I want to RNG a shiny pokemon do I use the time finder or the main page to find a seed?
    Another question. On the time finder it says nearby shiny and frame. Are they not the same thing?
    Another question. What is the fastest way to hit a shiny seed of frame 8000?

    Time Finder. You can't even use the main page to find a seed in the first place.

    Click the Nearby Shiny box in Time Finder and it'll ask you how far you want to advance for it. No, they're not the same as IV frames, as you've already been told.

    ...By not being insane/idiotic enough to use a seed with a frame that ridiculously high.

    Is there a list of the routes and their respective WNPCs in BW2? I wanted to know to RNG Terrakion, Virizion, Azelf, Cresselia and Uxie.

    Out of those five, Uxie and Terrakion have WNPCs (Seven and one, respectively).

    Is there anyone that can help me acquire my SID. It seems that my ISP is blocking access to Pokecheck and I do not have AR.

    I can help in about an hour or two. Catch something from your game that you don't mind parting with and PM/VM me.

    Edit: Done

    ID/SID abuse is pretty much the same as it is in White, so you probably just missed your timer0. You'll have to try a few times to find the starting frame of your seed, and it'll probably take you multiple tries after that to re-hit the seed and advance properly.

    How can I check the legitimacy of a Pokemon? Another question.
    Is cloning an illicit way of getting multiple copies of a pokemon and will it affect the game/console in any way?
    Thanks in advance.
