Ditto box is if you're using a Ditto, Everstone is obviously if you're using an Everstone, and international is for international parents. Leave the Volbeat/Nidoran box alone unless you're breeding one of those.

Hey guys, if I'm breeding eggs, but my parents are different species do I need to click any box?
There's ditto, international, and Nidoran/Volbeat boxes (WTF IS THAT!?).

If, say, I'm breeding a skitty and a wailord from the same game, do I need to click any boxes?
You click on ditto if one of the parents is well, ditto.
You click on international if the parents are from different languages
You click on Nidoran/Volbeat if you're breeding a nidoran or volbeat


Given your information the only thing you could click is international, again; only if they're from different languages

Oh, well I will be using Nidoran eventually so I'll click that. Out of curiosity, why are those different from the rest?
Just click on it when you're actually RNGing it, not now. I believe that's because they're male/female only species that can breed their counterparts, and when you're RNGing you want to know if the offspring will be female or male

the reason they're different is because they (Nidoran-F/Illumise) can have either their own eggs OR Nidoran-M/Volbeat.
 
Is there any way to check adjacent seeds from the Pokemon I hatched rather than having to catch another one to do so?
And can somebody explain Chatot pitches to me? Not quite understanding how you know when you're on your frame...

I'm having some trouble actually, can somebody briefly explain the fastest way to adjust for frame advancement based off CPU movement during breeding?
 
So I have taken like 4 months off of Pokemon and RNGing so I am pretty ignorant as to anything new besides 9.96 being released. So I am currently trying to get my parameters and I am in the room of Victory Road were you battle your rival. I have a Foongus with me to Sweet Scent and I am doing this as I would BW1, but I can't get one timer0 constantly. Is there something I maybe missing or is this a known problem? Sorry if this has been answered before.
 
BW2 has variable Timer0s, up to a dozen of 'em. Try to find your most common one.

Anybody, please help me out with adjusting my chatot viewings based off NPC movement for breeding, pwetty pweeeese! I have no idea how to determine whether I'm going over my target frame and by how much.
 
Target Frame - Initial Frame = Chatot Flips.
First, try to hit your seed without Chatot Flippings. Determine which frame you land on immediately after starting the game and talking to your stationary pokemon. If using sweet scent, do it as well.
e.g., My target frame is 50, RNG Reporter says my Initial Frame is 40. I should be doing 10 Chatot flips. After hitting my seed, I found out that my PID Frame is in 43. Hence, I will subtract 43 from 50 and will arrive at 7 Chatot flips instead.

Now, my question...

Is there any way to hit a consistent timer0 and not just relying on luck? (DSi user here, DSLite is dead =/)

Not really, although after calibrating you should discover that there are two or three timer0s that you hit more than the others, so timer0 shouldn't be too much of a problem (definitely more than it was last gen, but oh well).

What is talking to your stationary Pokemon?

Do what using sweet scent? I enter my game in the grass by the daycare, sweet scent as fast as possible and catch a poke. Then what?

The thing I don't understand is HOW to check my PID frame, please elaborate!
 
I just bought Black 2 and I decided to RNG for a TID/SID. From reading earlier post it looks like my calibration from Black 1 wont be the same in Black 2. How far in the game do I have to get before I can reliably find my games settings so I can RNG my TID/SID?
 
I'm trying to RNG a perfect Terrakion in White 2 but when I try to calibrate my timer0 values are all over the place and I can never manage to get the Terrakion I want. Is there something in particular I'm getting wrong?
 
ok im having some issue trying to RNG my genesect wondercard.

I have calibtrated and found my range of timer0's and selected a seed that falls in there, got my chatot set up and ready to go.

so im resetting on the right time (using eon timer to manage the extra 8 second delay for my console) and then listen to chatot 16 times (to advance to frame 66 from 48 that rng reporter is giving me.) but the stats Im getting are no where in the adjacent seed tool.

any ideas what i might be doing wrong?

You at least have to beat the first GYM and receive the C-Gear.


I'm not sure if TID/SID manipulation in B/W2 is the same as B/W1.
 
So I got an egg that isn't what I was RNGing for. How do I use the hatched Pokemon's characteristics to determine the frame advancement that occurred?

ID/SID abuse is the same as BW1.

Right-click>Display Parents in Search...

Then you can use the characteristic, nature, etc. to narrow down what frame you hit and how far off you were (or if you missed the seed).
 
FINALLY got my flawless Genesect. Kiddu, it turns out that the Frame reported in Time Finder is correct and the one in RNGReporter is 2 off. Either way, my only advice to anyone trying to RNG in BW2 is to make sure your Timer0 is calibrated to when you hit it exactly on the second. Otherwise, I've found results ranging from 10F2 - 10F7 appearing nearly 1/4 second before AND after the second marker.

I know I was doing a Wondercard RNG and not breeding, but this might still be helpful. Every time I got the wrong Genesect, I used the Pokedex-IV checker to find its general IV range and used the Adjacent Seed Tool to find all the possible Timer0 Frames for my IV spread. It also displays the starting PIDRNG frame for each of those Timer0s so all you do is just add on the number of advancements to the PIDRNG that you did and compare.
 
to narrow down what frame you hit
THIS is the part I don't know how to do. Somebody please explain how to do this.

I'm aware of the adjacent seed tool, but it tells me to go catch a pokemon and then shows them on frames 14-20... which I don't see how that helps me at all except to confirm the seed.

this is hard, my rng stops working as I begin. should I download it again?
Are you using Windows XP? If so, the latest version isn't compatible with it (an XP-compatible version will be released once all the basic features are done).

If that's not the problem: what precisely do you mean by "stops working"? If there's an error message or some other possibly helpful information, can you post it? Your problem is too vague to say what the cause is right now.

Don't use the adjacent seed tool. Paste the seed into the main window (make sure the method is set to BW (breeding) or BW (breeding, international) as appropriate) and generate the frames for it. Display parents as I explained previously. Then just look at the information for each frame and see if one of them matches the results you got.

Oh, alright, thanks.
 
Going for Genesect wondercard now. I assume it's not GLAN? Also, does it matter if I change "never shiny" to "may be shiny"? Why is this an option?

I can't find my parameters in the calibration process.

I'm following the steps in this video because I've read that the calibration process is the same in BW2.

I set my DS clock to the exact time of my parameter finder window, and set the target seconds on eontimer, then I start my game and sweet scent in victory road, then I catch a Pokemon and write the IV's, but everytime I search for results, I get none.

I'm using a DS lite.

This is a screenshot of my parameter finder window.


Is there something I'm doing wrong?
