Everything looks fine, just add more keypresses, it'll be easier to find anything you could also extend your Nearby Shiny Frame to 500. It will take longer for Reporter to work but nuch higher change to find the desired Pokemon. I have to warn you that it's possible that you'll have to search multiple years.

Now I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I changed the keypresses to none, one, two and three, I changed the shiny advances to 500 and I selected every month in the year and I'm still not finding anything. :/

OK, NOW I see your mistake!

Gift pokemon can't be synchronized, so you have to pick a certain nature and uncheck synch box. I assumed you're trying to catch the 'mon and didn't look at encounter type, my bad.

If you don't get your results in the first year of searching, search more years. it took me approximately 30 years of searching before I found a very specific desired seed.

Good luck!

ps. as twilightblade said, if you need instant help, visit the chatroom

Ah! That makes more sense, thank you. Does it matter how far in advance or in the past I search the years? Because as of right now I'm searching the year 2020 haha.

you can search (depending on your DS) from 2000 to 2050 or 2099. Just find a seed the year doesn't matter

One last question, I obtained two Chatot and am using them to advance the frame, but I don't seem to be getting it right. In RNG Reporter it says my Frame is 1 and my Shiny Frame is 484. So the number of advancements I would need to do is 483 correct? I tried both 484 and 483 and neither of the times were successful.

Not quite. The Frame 1 is referring to the IVs. You will have to do way less than 483 chatters.

Your PID (shiny) Frame will be somewhere between 38 and 60. If there are wandering trainers on the route, even if off screen, the PID will advance randomly.

You need to first use the program's Calculate Initial PID button to get this 38-60 number. In one example, my starting frame was given as 43.

Then, you need to figure out the shifted frame (this pid frame may have been shifted because of wandering trainers). Just do some test runs (ie don't do hundreds of chatters each time). Just do a run where you do 0 chatters immediately, and on the next run do 1 chatter, maybe a 2 chatter run, etc, and find the pattern of natures on the generated table. Assuming you hit your seed, you'll find the pattern and determine the shifted starting frame.

What Pokemon are you abusing? Gifts still? I'm rusty, but I hope this helps.

Quote:
General Summary of Information
— Initial Frame for PID
— The PID, or Personality Value, is responsible for a Pokémon's nature, ability, shiny color, and so on. Click for more details.
This will vary between 38 to 60 from seed to seed. Always use RNG Reporter to calculate the Initial PID Frame for you.

Has anyone tried finding their parameters for BW2? I've bought the game yesterday, and I tried finding mine in my XL only to find out RNG Reporter doesn't support the DSi yet. I tried with my Lite, but no luck. I had one seed when I expanded the range of my timer0 to 10FF. I got a timer0 of 10F3 and all other parameters were the same.

I figured out what I was doing wrong, I was doing it completely wrong actually, but now it's easier for me to figure it out and I understand what you mean by the initial frame now. I'm trying to RNG a Keldeo, the event, so it'd be a Gift Pokemon in the Pokecenter. The frames shouldn't advance randomly because I'm doing it in the Victory Road Pokecenter and none of the npcs in there are wandering so the frame should only change due to the Chatots. I'll try it again sometime later today, but I see where I went wrong. Thank you all for your help, I'll update later with my progress and hopefully success.

EDIT: Here's my RNG Reporter, as you can see the Pokemon I want is on frame 98, the Timid Shiny. My starting frame is 45.

1. Keldeo is NOT a gift. It's a wondercard.
2. Keldeo cannot be shiny.
3. Use this for Wondercards

So, after trying to figure out all this RNG stuff I finally figured it out, (and I guess it would've helped if I fully read the guide, but I didn't :3).

Anyways, here's my first successful RNG:


(yes, he's shiny o.o)
Nature: Jolly

I'm not 100% on the IVs, but if I got the timing and everything right then they should be 31 / 31 / 31 / 28 / 31 / 31

Serebii IV calc tels me that they are at least:
30 / 30 / 31 / 28 / 30 / 30

I'm pretty proud of this, getting a nearly, if not flawless Pokemon for my first successful RNG. Thank you so much you guys for helping!

Serebii's calculator is iffy sometimes. Save your game, pull up Metalkid's calculator, plug in as much information as you can, then level it with rare candies. If you can put in its stats each time it levels, Metalkid can narrow down the IVs and give you something (usually) more accurate than Serebii. Do NOT save, unless you wanted to level him and don't care about the candy.

Hey guys, nice to meet y'all! I'd like to start by saying that in the first 2 minutes of stumbling upon this site, I instantly fell in love and will now prefer this site over Smogon. This community seems much more... mature and friendly.

Now that that's outta the way, I am in need of some help.

I've got a hold of a retail cart of Black2, and I'm using a DSLite. I've had the HARDEST time trying to calibrate for RNGing, because I didn't want to venture too far into the game without abusing my TiD/SiD FIRST.

So, I've found my parameters, and it seems like I have a Timer0 of 1103 as my most common. Yeah, it fluctuates a bit. I've been trying to RNG myself a certain PID frame for easy flawless shiny spreads, but so far I haven't had any luck.

Either I hit the wrong Timer0, or I can't find ANY Timer0 that I hit to compare my results with.

How... exactly am I supposed to be doing this anyway? I've been using this guide *smogon [dot] com/forums/group.php?do=discuss&gmid=109518* so far.

I'm back, at long last :D Pokemon white 2 awoke me from my slumber, I finally got the game two days ago. It's going to take a while to beat the game and then relearn RNG'ing all over again though.. >__<

This is what I've done on White 2 so far.


Minccino ♂ | Level 22
Skill Link | 31 31 31 2 31 31
Hidden Grotto


Reshiram | Level 70
Turbo Blaze | 31 15 31 31 31 31
Dragonspiral Tower

I only RNG'd this Reshiram because I needed to get it out of the way to get Kyurem so I figured why not. :P

Hello everybody! I hope you can help me.

I learned about RNG recently, so far I've only used it to hatch a Modest Eevee (I didn't even RNG'd its IVs ), which means I don't have much idea of this way of playing games.

I just wanted to know if there's any way to RNG the items my Zigzagoon with Pickup will get. I want tons of rare candies so I can level up my shiny chained Pokés, calculate its IVs, and know my SID using the Chain to SID function on RNG Reporter.

If there's any way to do it, can you tell me, please? Thanks!

There aren't any methods to rng Pickup.

But you can learn regular RNG and then open a trade thread here with Rare Candies as your currency

Good luck with future abuses!

For pokemon black/white, you can RNG both eggs and wild pokemons and the second post from TwilightBlade on this thread demonstrates how to do it for you. For Black2/White2, the concept is the same but you cannot RNG eggs.

timer0s are different and there are 8-16 timer0s per second not up to 3 like in BW. It's just a bit harder. If it's going to be your first RNG, I highly recommend
to start with BW, because it's much easier

Don't scare other users, Mac. They prolly have a DS Lite which is the best for RNG. The newer DS, the more problematic RNG is.
