yay awesome I understand all of that!! Everything makes more sense when you explain it.
Yeah I'd like to stick to being lazy, but at the same time I have patience when it comes to some things (like IV breeding... I don't know how I got the nearly flawless things that I managed to get with IV breeding through generations after starting out with a terrible parent at the very beginning... but somehow I did, after lots and lots of patience. There's always just one IV stat that makes the hatchling not worth trading though... O_o)
I recommend using an Everstone but not using Power Items and believe me, even without power items, getting a flawless baby through RNGing can be done pretty fast.
The Min and Max that were different for other people depens on how much they're willing to walk when it comes to wild RNGing. We're lazy people though, we'll stick to frame 1 for wild and frame 8 for eggs. (I have had no need yet to walk)
About Step 4. The IV RNG frame is advanced by 8 when you receive an egg. So this is the reason why you need to put it at 8. So basically it's like the starter frame (1) for wild capture RNGing.
Timer0 can always **** everything up when it comes to RNGing. The problem with breeding is is that it's actually harder to find out wether you hit your seed or not since you also have inheritance. This can be checked easier when using the PID frame but I haven't taught you that yet.
No they don't cause a frame to shift however Power Items will change inheritance and mess up with RNG Reporter's ability to predict so I don't recommend using them. The Everstone shifts the order of PIDs and changes the synch PIDs to the everstone nature.
oh oh oh also!! Does using an Everstone or Power Items cause a frame to shift? I read something that mentioned something like this the other day when I tried to research RNG breeding. I forget where I read it ^_^""
I'm curious about this step:
Step 4: Set Min and Max frame both to "8".
What does min/max frame actually do, and how does setting it to 8 help? How do you know to set it to 8 for breeding? I was lurking around on #smogonwifi and they were talking about which min/max frames they use, and it seemed to be a little different for everyone?

I do plan on offering everything that I breed/catch myself as UT and EV trained (eventually, after I get around to EV training it..). For things that can only be taught new moves while un-evolved I'll also offer those EV trained yet unevolved, like my Cottonee. :)
All of the dreamworld Dratini that I'll rng breed will know Extremespeed as an eggmove on the UT versions.
Actually, I have pretty decent parents to start with for Dreamworld Dratini! Maybe I should practice learning IV RNG breeding using those. There are a few different sets that would be cool to have in our shop, like a bulky one with Roost/Dragon Tail/Thunder Wave/Substitute... or the sort that are made to abuse Hurricane/Thunder in the rain. :3
edit: fyi, I have a flawless male Dragonite and a near flawless female (3 IV points from flawless). Good to start from? :D
Hmm.... okay I'll try my best ^_^ Might have to IV breed to get good IVs unless I can figure out how to rng Capture for IVs on a Gen IV game.. since a lot of the DW pokes that I have can't be caught in B/W. I'll figure something out.
meh... I got as many scenes as I was able in for the combined avi for the work in progress meeting tomorrow... not too many because most of the stuff I've worked on since my computer became messed up and until they got me a new one yesterday is in bits and pieces... not something I feel comfortable showing to get some feedback. O_o''' I'm slowly filling in the gaps to catch back up to my frame mileage.
I really want to figure out how to RNG breed. There are a bunch of DW 'mon that would be nice to have in our shop, which I have DW females for. Plus since I have access to a good deal of egg moves... rng breeding would be a good thing to be able to do, in order to contribute my own nicely IV'd stuff to our shop that might make it interesting and unique (for offering things that are less common to see). :3
D'oh that sucks about Stealth Rock + dreamworld.. I can try to find a female dw Cradily if you still want one? I don't currently have that one yet but I may have a connection in Bulbagarden who does. :)
