So, I'm at the Desert Resort Entrance, my starting frame is 50 and my Shiny PID is 418. So I did 368 Chatters, but ended up on frame 422. So I tried again and did 4 Chatters less, but still got 422. What am I missing here? >__<

I'm leaning towards NPCs, but I'm not 100% sure.

is there a sand storm there?.oh and thats a lot of advances so you may have miscounted your chatots
 
There are two types of frames. The IV frame and the PID frame.
Usually the IV frame is set to the minimum, so you don't really need to worry about that.
The PID frame is advanced, as you stated, by listening to Chatot. Your frame will never be 8. There is a minimum that the game sets it to. It's like 30 something to 50 ish.

As for determining how many frames the NPCs advance, you just don't the Chatot calls, see what frame you hit. Subtract the frame you hit from the Initial frame. Then take that number, subtract it from total number of Chatot calls needed. That number will be how many times you listen to Chatot.
Hmm I still don't get it. How can I know which frame I hit? Do I need to hatch it first and check its Iv or something else?

first of all as said above,
there are 2 types of frames for a single seed
IV frame-determines ivs
and the pid frame-determines nature ,shinyness and ability
when rnging an egg.your starting iv frame is 8.
and your starting pid frame is between 40-60ish
npcs only advance pid frame.so your ivs are safe
in the main rng reporter window
chose breeding (BW)
and if your pokemon is holding everstone ,choose which nature is the holder
enter your seed into the seed (hex) box
then click calculate initial pidrng frame
then you'll get a value of 40-60 in the starting frame box.
hit generate
say you got 47 for your starting frame.,that means if there are no npcs you will get the nature ,ability corresponding to frame number 47.
but since there are npc ,that frame will shift up by about 2-7ish frames.
so what you need to do is find that shifted starting frame.
hit the seed and mash X when the season screen displays to get to the menu ,then quit and mash A as fast as you can to get your egg.now hatch it and match the nature gender and ability you got with the frames of the results you generated(for example if my initial frame is 47 ,ill match them 47 upwards).then if you get a match say frame 49,then deduct that from your target frame(say 57).and thats the number of advances you should do by chatots(57-49=8 chatot flips).then rehit your seed ,do the advances and get the egg


to verify whether you hit your seed.after getting the egg go to a place where you can catch a high level pokemon like victory road or something(your choice)then catch a pokemon with sweet scent,check its ivs and match them with the IV frames of your seed,
in the range of 14-25ish

When I click "calculate initial pidrng frame" I get nothing or do I need to click Generate to get something

Paste the seed after selecting your method, then calculate the initial PIDRNG frame. Once the starting frame has appeared on the left, click Generate below that.
 
I'm using PPRNG to rng my Victini wondercard, and I get the right IVS, and I do the same Chatot advancements, but the nature is always different. I'm doing this in the Elite Four Pokémon center. I'm using a DS Lite, and Black. My seed is AC9C3A4F9E4867CC

I tried several different seeds to no avail. I'm trying to get an Adamant nature. I would really appreciate any help.
