    Exactly, you stop on the frame before your target, hence if you stop on frame 9 if your target is 10. Hence the egg IVs are generated on the NEXT frame. If he called 9 times, he's not on frame 9, he's on frame 10. In which it is too late to stop one frame before his target. Just think about it.

    There is a NPC at the bottom. Whenever he moves the frame advances. This is why you have to quickly collect the egg.

    Its not hard to get the egg before the NPC advanced the frame, so unless you're very slow I doubt this is your problem. Check to make sure that your pokemon's IVs are the ones on frame 11 of your seed. Make sure you stop on FRAME 9, don't call more than 8 times. Even better don't track the number of times you called, track the frame you're on each time.

    So your saying he needs to call 8 times? << That is wrong.Calling 9 times would bring you to frame 10. Picking up the egg doesnt advance the frame so that means its still on frame 10. I dont see where you get 11.

    No it is not. You start on frame 1. You call 8 times. 1 + 8 = 9 ... you agree that you stop one frame before your target right? So obviously you stop on 9.

    Zack, the number of times you call is not equal to the frame you are on. He said he called 9 times, so he can't be on frame 9.

    @ Sam, type in your seed in the RNG reporter and clikc generate with the Method being Egg IVs in HGSS. You can see your target on frame 10. Next time you hit your seed, follow the responses. Can you give me the seed?

    Samster, I think this will help you. Your frame is 10. Let's say the frames and Elm calls are like this:
    5 E
    6 P
    7 E
    8 K
    9 K
    10 P
    11 P

    When you're calling, only call up to the second K. For this example, the last calls you would make would be E P E K K, then you would immediately talk to the daycare man, who will have the frame 10 spread.

    I don't have to worry about this if I saved in front of Kyogre right? Since I'm still able to call Elm and I can still use the radio.

    You're right, sorry I just had a lapse. I was thinking the response was given on the new frame but it's not. And this was a better explanation...

    Just put your seed into the Seed (Hex) box, go to Breeding (HGSS), and click Generate. Then you can just follow the frames and match them up with the Elm calls.

    Not really because you don't know what nature that spread comes with, and it's more than likely one you won't want. There's a couple of links on the first page that have some good spreads that you can use.

    EDIT: Nevermind, the spreads you can use can be found in the first post at the very bottom of the How to Capture Perfect Pokemon guide. You can also use Wichu's PokeRNG too.

    So not even if I were to use a synchronizer as well?

    I can't open the spreadsheets with all the seeds in it, so yeah.

    Oh, okay. You can copy the seed, paste it in RNG Reporter, and check the nature I guess. It would be easier to just search for your own though.
