    There are seven WNPCs in Nacrene City, none of them battleable.

    So this means a 7 frame offset right? Or are the advancements varied?

    No the frame advances every time they move and even then you cannot tell by how much. There one one NPC who moved the frame by two every time he turns. There was one NPC who moved the frame by 4 every time he turns. In combination, we have no idea what the offset will be, especially because you don't have all of them on screen..

    You probably set the method to PIDRNG in Time Finder. Doing so doesn't search for IVs, you'll have to set the method to IVs (standard seed).

    Additionally, it changes each time you save.

    Not quite, I searched for a seed with desirable IVs in the Time Finder and the PIDRNG in the main window. I thought that was the way I'm supposed to do it, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm still wondering what I'm supposed to do with the results from the Adjacent Seed tool, that is +-2. I'm guessing that this means that my actual seconds is 2, not 1 like I thought it was. Is there a way to refine the offset etc without having to re-callibrate all over again?

    Forget the Adjacent Seed tool, you only need it for the previous generations.

    How to handle the actual seconds: As said, you just have to remember the difference between the actual seconds and the second you have pressed - don't worry, it is constant, so you only need to do it once. The best way to get a consistent result is to use an external timer like EonTimer, or any timer that displays milliseconds.
    Perform a calibration, take any second you want like 30. Try to hit it, then let the RNG Reporter search for the seed you have actually hit, take a look at the actual second. Tell us when you have it done.

    Let me just say after about 5 different seeds and well over 100 attempts... Do not go for a shiny Uxie : / Each time you hit the seed the people move so fast that you can never tell what your actual starting frame is...

    I tried a method where I would always assume the starting frame is moved by say 5 (since that's the result I once got)... Hoping that it would repeart and therefor work...

    But it seems in the few seconds between you closing the meny and talking to uxie they advance them again... In conclusion, go for non shiny

    that's definitely not true, because many people have done it, on retail carts.

    This is true, but honestly, why would anyone want to get Uxie shiny? I mean Jesus, it was yellow enough as a normal pokemon.

    I've downloaded the EonTimer v1.6 and now I'm wondering what I'm supposed to put in the Calibration box? At the moment it just says -95.

    Also do I have to do a search in the RNG reporter DS Parameters first and then open the EonTimer and do another search or is it the other way around?

    I think that the initial frame in PIDRNG is not accurate, so it's not 47 for sure, for example, my initial frame when i try PIDRNG is actually 62, it's 15 frames more, because it shows me 47, but it's 62. You should check that! Sorry if i'm not clear

    I can't send my results to time finder. There's no button. Eh...

    Can I have some help?

    There is a "Send results to profile" button or something like that where the button should be.

    What's the correct settings for the EonTimer when using black? Like what am I supposed to put in boxes under the actions, application, timer tabs etc... Can anyone point me to a guide specifically for gen 5? Also I'm still not sure how I'm supposed to use it to find my parameters.

    Don't touch anything but the "Target Second" panel and the C-Gear box.

    Uncheck the C-Gear bock and insert your target seconds.
    Try to hit your target time with the aid of the EonTimer.
    Calibrate the Pokemon in order to get the actual seconds; as said, you only need to do it once.
    From that point, remember the difference.

    Tell us when you have done that part.

    Edit: We have tried to sum things up in three pictures
    5th Gen Calibration My EonTimer Timing (DS Lite); 5th Gen Calibration; 5th Gen Setting EonTimer

    We should do a picture series eventually, when we have time.

    Any tips for RNGing a shiny Kyurem in BW2? I've been trying for a while but the Chatot pitches are never right :(

    edit: I've successfully RNG'd shiny Heatran, Latios, 3 Musketdeers in this game already but Kyurem seems to be very difficult.

    Remember the Chatot pitches don't start at the starting frame (something in the cave moves the PID frame). You probably know how to deal with it, because you have already caught the three ponies and Latios. So keep trying!

    You first create a profile and then use that profile in the time finder

    For wondercard seeds, how do you find the initial frame? the guide is little to vague on this point for me to understand.

    Paste the seed's name (that String sequence) in the panel of the main window that says "Seed (Hex)".

    For BW, press "Calculate Initial PIDRNG Frame".
    For BW2, check "Black White 2?" and "Memory Link" when you have performed an Unova Link already, then press "Calculate Initial PIDRNG Frame".

    Version: RNG Reporter 9.96.5 BETA w/ EonTimer v1.6
    Capture: Virizion. 31/31/31/31/31/30. Hasty. Not Shiny. White 2. English. DSi.
    Seed: C5B6C6B0F43826E8.
    Frame: 100.
    Keypress: Left
    Date/Time: 12/10/12 @ 05:47:31.
    MAC: CC-9E-00-79-32-6A.
    VCount: AC
    GxStat: 6
    VFrame: 8
    Timer0 Min: 166C
    Timer0 Max: 1673

    5th Generation Time Finder
    Method: IVs (Standard Seed)
    Encounter Type: Stationary Pokemon
    Encounter Slot: Any
    (see above for nature and IVs)

    RNG Reporter 9.96.5 BETA Window

    Method: Gen 5 PIDRNG
    Encounter Type: Stationary Pokemon

    For some reason the time finder window and the main window have different results for frame 100. Time finder states it should be Hasty, main window states Timid. I increased the frame from a start of around 49-50 to frame 99 via Chatot sounds. These matched the predicted chatters. I encountered Virizion for frame 100. Caught him, and the nature was Adamant and the IV's were off (only 31 being Health).

    I've done RNG manipulation of White without much problem. For some reason I cannot get White 2 to work. I have not done anything with memory link, the memory link is not selected.

    Just to ensure my method is correct... I first calibrated my DSi to find my timer0 settings. I have two ranges--one at VCount AD and one at VCount AC. I find I get AC about 2/3 of the time so I selected this with a timer0 range of 166C to 1673 (I get between these most often).

    Once I saved the profile for my game, I clicked "Time Finder" > "5th Generation Time Finder" and entered desired IVs and Nature. I set Method as "IVs (Standard Seed)", Encounter Type as "Stationary Pokemon" and Encounter Slot as "Any." There were approximately 14 results with these settings. I selected a seed at target frame 100 to ensure I hit my seed (by listening to Chatot pitches). After 5-7 tries, I finally hit the correct timer0 and seed. I advanced to the target frame of 100; and had the results I mentioned above.

    Am I just missing something?

    Set the encounter type on the main window to Stationary as well.
