    The main window, where the PID frames are: Right-click and output the results to text. We might want to take a look at them.

    Oh, and there are randonly moving NPCs in the area. In order to stop them, make them engage you in battle and move away from their location. Works only once, and only until you leave the map.

    I have a question about RNGing Hidden Grotto Pokemon. Is there an easy way to count the 256 steps? Or do people just use max repel and count out 56?

    Max repel is 250 steps, plus six extra. Alternately, you can go from one side to the other, and that's 8 steps, so doing that 32 times will give you 256 steps.

    Thank you for the response!

    Other quick questions: I found this post http://www.smogon.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3411155&postcount=4 on BW2 calibration.
    a) Is the arrows thing only available on the Mac-only program PPRNG? I don't see it on RNG Reporter.
    b) What do the directions correspond to? That little box that resembles a clock that comes up at the end of the text when the game is loading?

    Can we get any kind of idea on a way to use the PPRNG calibration method on windows? :\ or if this feature can be added to RNG Reporter?

    1. PPRNG exclusive at the moment.
    2. Directions are used to confirm you hit your seed. This is how you find parameters easily and how you RNG Dream Radar mons.

    Wait patiently please. Slashmolder, IIRC, is the only one doing the active programming of RNG Reporter.

    Hey everyone! I have a problem with timer0 on B2, 3DS, last RNG reporter. I only have 2: 1683 and 167C. I hit more the second one but the problem is that when i try to search for a pokemon with the time finder, it won't throw any results. I think it's not working, can anybody help me? I'm trying to get a flawless Virizion. Thanks

    You can use keypresses and/or look on different months/years!

    Um... I was thinking that i should use Eontimer, i heard that it helps you find your timer0. Is there any guide for BW2 on 3DS that explaiins how to find my parameters? Or maybe an Eontimer guide?

    You just set EonTimer to the number of seconds you want to hit, 30 is the easiest in my opinion. so if you want to hit the seed at 4:20:30 you'd set your clock to 4:20 on your DS, hit start on eon timer and set on the DS at the same time, or set it 1 minute before and hit eon timer when the minute changes, i do the first method and i hit every time...
    eontimer beeps 6 times, you need to start your game on the 6th beep, hope i could help

    So I think I found a good seed to use for Cobalion, on black. I've never been able to RNG anything befor so this time I'll opt for a non-shiny Cobalion because it'll be easier and also because it looks better in aqua blue compared to dark blue...

    The seed I found is Frame 190 and the starting frame is on 50.

    I'm a bit confused about the whole chatot thing. I know I have to listen to there cries but how do I determine how many cries I have to listen to? Can someone help me out?

    Copy the seed to main page of the reporter.
    Select the type of rng you'll do.
    Specify if you're using a syncronizer or any other specific lead.
    Click calculate initial pid frame.
    Target frame - initial pid frame = advacements needed

    Make sure you have a recorded chatter.

    So for me it'll be Target frame (190) -starting frame (50) =40 chatots.

    Is that right?

    Also since it's on frame 1 I don't have to walk 128 steps right?

    So now that i think i found my timer0, 'cos i'm using the one that i hit more, I'm trying to RNG a Virizion, just it's IVs. How do i have to advance the frame? It's on frame 8 and i know the initial is 1, so do i have to walk a determined number of steps with X pokemon in my team or am i able to use chatot here? Sorry if don't explain myself well, hope you can help me!

    If you want to advance the IVRNG frame by X, then walk 128 steps with X pokemon. Use custom chatot pitches to advance the PIDRNG frame.

    Ok, so chatot only works for PIDRNG. Such bad luck, i have to advance 7 frames to get to frame 8. I guess i'll have to walk 896 steps with only 1 pokemon in my team :S. Thanks for the info!

    Keep in mind that walking also advances the PID frame occasionally, even if you're not in an area with wild Pokémon. Stick to IV frame 1, it'll make your life a lot easier. If you can't find anything, add keypresses if you haven't already or search more months/years.

    It's really easy to do both. Just try it out in an area without WNPCs first, so you can get the hang of it.

    Im trying to find a wondercard seed in White 2 using the time finder on the RNG reporter.

    But before I can do that, it asks me for some in-game info (trainer name, id, sid) the problem is that the english version for white 2 is not an option. is the japanese version the same thing?
