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

Thanks. So now that I'm calibrated, I'm trying to do TID/SID abuse. I found a seed, generated a TID/SID combination, and now I'm trying to find my initial frame. Every time I do it, though, no valid initial frame pops up in Pandora's Box.

Is that because I haven't hit my most probable timer0 value yet, or am I doing something wrong?
New page.
 
so there's no way to rng a shiny starter without having got the parameters before you restart
Start a new game and calibrate. Then delete your file and start over for the shiny starter.

If I perform a system update on my 3DS XL (currently running version 4.1.0-8U), is there any chance that my B2/W2 parameters for that system will change?
I guess it's possible but I've never seen it so I doubt it will.

Finding the initial frame isn't really unnecessary because RNG Reporter's calculations of initial frames are 100% accurate. Just find a seed and start trying to hit it. When you miss it means you're on the wrong timer0 or counted incorrectly for advances.
 
Hello, I am a first time poster although I've been using Smogon for years now. I started RNGing on B2 yesterday and already have a flawless/shiny Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, Azelf, and Mesprit. The Cobalion was the trickiest one so far, the WNPC advanced the frame by 9. Is that normal? My main question is to those that have successfully RNG'd Uxie, how many frames did the WNPCs advance?
 
The Zorua given to you by one of the Sages would be considered stationary or gift?

Also is it able to be shiny, and I'm assuming the Scraggy running in circles will be a pain in my side when doing the PIDRNG frame advances?

NPC advancements are different for every person, because it depends on their position when you last saved and also what seed you're using. When I did Uxie they advanced around 20 frames IIRC, but you'll have to figure out the exact number for your own setup.

N's Zorua? It's always 30/30/30/30/30/30 Hasty, and the ID/SID/PID are also static so it can't be shiny either.

However, anything that a NPC gives you that can be RNG'd would be a gift, it's only a stationary if you battle it.

Um not sure it's the one given to you by one of the seven sages in Driftveil City, it might be N's Zorua. I might have missed that detail since I tend to button mash A while talking with NPC's lol story line is never relevant to me. But if that IS N's Zorua, that sucks.

Good to know on the whole gift/stationary distinguishing factor.

Voodoo already covered the Zorua part, bu for future reference, anything that moves in a set pattern doesn't advance the PIDRNG. Generally it's a good idea to check out where you're RNGing to see if there is anyone that moves in an unpredictable pattern, and if so, then they'll advance the PIDRNG.

Ah! I was under the impression that anything that moved advanced it. So anything like trainers that move in a set pattern like the ones that walk up and down and turn won't advance it. Good to know. Thanks for that.
 
While Starly's evolutions have a DW ability, Starly itself actually doesn't. You will never be able to RNG breed for a DW Starly. You will have to RNG a Staravia in Entralink.

That isn't entirely true. While Starly does not have a DW Ability, if you hit the right frame when you get the egg (and fulfilled all necessary requirements to breed a DW ability onto it), it will evolve into a Staravia with the ability Reckless.

Indeed - note the (DW) after the ability. It may not have a different ability, but the flag is still set for when it evolves.
 
Can I accurately get my parameters by IVs in B2/W2 if I have no save file, I start a new game, then check a Pokémon's stats/IVs without ever saving and restarting (assuming I inputted the right date/time at which I loaded the game from the 3DS XL's menu), or do I need to have a preexisting save file for it to work correctly? I want to RNG my ID/SID but don't want to lose my Genesect WonderCard by creating and deleting a save file.
 
I have White2, doing stationary abuse for Reshiram, using synchronizer, getting the correct IVs but not correct nature, I am doing frame advancements also- with the Chatot, can the seed be glitched? And the nature I am getting is nowhere on the RNG reporter PIDRNG list lol.

Have you considered starting a save, getting your parameters off it, RNGing the Genesect on that save, then temporarily trading Genesect to another game (yours or a friend's) while you delete the save and RNG your IDs?

I know that would be a relatively easy solution, but I'd rather not do that because I am not sure how I want to RNG the Genesect yet, and I also like to collect/save the actual WonderCards (until I run out of space).

Can I do what I am planning on doing, or do I need a pre-existing save file in order to accurately get my parameters via IVs?

May you give us the seed you have hit, the nature you are looking for and the nature you have got? That probably would make the toubleshooting a bit easier.

The only thing I can think of is the starting frame being wrong is that the starting frame was shifted. It usually should not happen unless there are random moving NPCs in this area (there aren't any). Then again, the nature at hand should be in the list when you generate it. Unless you somehow got trolled by the Timer0, which can cause you hitting another seed, but in that case the IVs would change. Are you sure that you hit the correct seed and that the IVs are always the same?

It's not that you need a pre-existing save, but that I don't know if you'd be able to get to the point where you could get a Pokemon to check without advancing the IV frame, which'd ruin the attempt.

I don't think you can.


There is one way I can think of that'd solve your problem, but it's a bit...sketchy. And would require an outside purchase.
 
Not-so-clever question but I'm being a little lost right now. Started recently RNGing on B2 to get my timer0. At first, I would mostly get 1106s, a little more 1103s and rarely 1104. After that, 1103s appeared more commonly and the last three tries were 1104/1105. Is there something I can do?

On a side note, my VCount is 82, Gxstat and VFrame is 6.

In your RNGReporter/PPRNG profile, you can specify a range of timer0's. For example, you could set the min timer0 = 1103 and max timer0 = 1106. Then just note the timer0 you get when you search for the seed in Seed Searcher or TimeFinder.

Once you get that timer0, that's the one you want to hit. There really is no way to tell which one you'll hit. Persistence and consistency (in terms of when you press and release your buttons) is the only way in BW2.
