    Tase, I'm still not sure what your problem is, but your idea on the Poketch isn't right. I too pass through them slowly (accuracy>speed), and I got it to work.

    Guess I'll go to Best Buy and get a cam to document the process... obviously I'm doing something wrong, but no one knows what it is. :\

    BTW, this might have been asked earlier, I found my own SID with AR.

    In party = Sweet Scenter, Flame Body poke, 2 parents

    - Turn on the game with AR active.
    - "A" through the title screens
    - Hit "continue" and note the time in the Platinum Seed Finder (in this case 2009 / 4 / 11 / 16 / 43)
    - Use my Sweet Scenter (4 pokes in my party)
    - Catch the poke (now 5 in my party)
    - Use IV Check code to check IVs
    - Enter them into Seed Finder (Calm 11/31/6/11/18/28)
    - Select initial seed with delay ~600 (=622)
    - Drop down menu > Plat Egg ID (Normal because my parents are Lorelei's Kingdra and Cosmic Jeff's Bagon)
    - ID = 37167; SID = 46187 according to the SID AR code.
    - select Shiny only
    - Generate
    - Select first spread (209 Happiness taps, 8 Coin flips)
    - Scroll from App 5 to the Happiness checker app
    - Tap Happiness app 209 times, making sure I only count when they bounce. I usually do this in 25-tap increments, taking a brief pause between groups to maintain concentration. Tap the Coin Flip 8 times
    - Go to the day-care (I use the Route south of solaceon so I just have to ride my bike there)
    - place Lorelei's Kingdra and Jeff's Bagon in the Day-care; exit day-care
    - Approach day-care man, who is already facing toward the road with an egg because I have Fast Breed Code on
    - take egg, hatch.
    - egg =/= shiny. :\

    Ooooh. I didn't see that in the step by step but obviously I'll take your word for it. XD

    I'll try it again.

    I know this is going to be a really dumb question but, what time does everyone have according to the time.nist.gov clock? I have 6:27 pm.

    are you sure that URL's right >_> Doesn't work for me
    Smogon says it was 5:27 GMT-5 when you posted that, so I assume you're right

    When you hit "Find" a list of seeds will come up, each delay for a seed is in the far right column (under the "delay" column)

    he mis-spoke, you need 5 in your party. it sounds like you have 4?

    one flame body, two parents, and one sweet scent equals four pokemon right?

    add one more, then you'll be at 5, which gives you six when you sweet scent and catch a random pokemon.

    other than that your steps seem fine.

    granted i only did this once, that seems to be the thing you're messing up to me. i had IV check, fast hatch and instant egg on when i successfully attempted it the other day.

    also a side note, my SID is only 4 characters long, is that weird?

    it might take you a while, but just to make sure you can do it, you may want to just keep trying until you get a very low number of taps/flips so you can be 100% certain that you've gotten that down right and see how it goes.

    why do you need your SID
    do you have to do anything in your game regarding the delay?
    Im trying to get this, I already have an HP electric parent but it says not to give it an Everstone

    you need your SID so the applete can find you shiny spreads. and the nature of your spread is decided earlier.

    I have a question. I just got a 32 tap Adamant spread on my Diamond, and I was wondering if I changed my DS time to be exactly the same as I had in order to get that spread, would I get the same one?

    Yes, but you have to be perfect with the timing. (Milliseconds)

    It's not to the minute (like what you put in to the RNG Reporter)?

    If so, that sucks. :(

    Ok, so I got two really awesome spreads. Both are less than 10 taps.

    The only catch is that it says "do not switch to the happiness application at all". I'm playing Diamond, and I'm at the one before it, so should I just skip it really quickly? Does it just mean that I shouldn't touch it at all and proceed directly to the coin flip app?

    No, just switch the other way.
