You've got column seconds in IV Gen Pandora's Box, don't you? XD

And my answer to the topic -
I never plan my abuses unless they are for my new team or a BP/CP for someone. I also get inspired by Smogon or my friends' Polish anylises and I RNG 'mon when I feel like RNGing, never in a rush, because it destroys the fun of RNGing. It's never in my schedule, I just get the spark to do it and I do it

International Puppy Day... This exists? xD Anyway, I did the chellenge I thought what better to catch as a pet than a Lillipup :3 I think my reasons are obvious haha. It's shiny with 31/31/31/x/31/31, I think x was around the 15 mark :3 Bad ability though D:
it's not international it's either British or American Day. Mac was sleepy when posting this XD
And Lillipup has both of his abilities valueable. Intimidate is fantastic in doubles while Sand Rush is awesome in low tier sand teams.

Hey Mac, I finally figured out how to RNG for non-shiny egg pokemon...lol.

Well, remember how I said I inputed a random PID and SID? Somehow, the 5 numbers I chose for both IDs matched a real working PID and SID spread. So my random IDs made the pokemon still come out shiny. I only saw one thread on gamefaqs that recommended randomizing IDs would allow for non-shiny flawless breeding, but the guy couldn't confirm that it worked...so I wrote it off when it didn't work for me.

Well, I tried it again, this time with a different set of randomized PID and SIDs, and it obviously worked. I think the odds of me randomizing a set of IDs that actually matched for shiny spreads must be insane.

Wow, that's crazy. Glad to hear that you figured it out though! Which version of RNG reporter do you use, anyway?

9.92 is the latest version I can get running on my macbook. Just grabbed my non-shiny flawless Charmander. I might be up all night doing this. :D

Oh, right, I forgot that you're a Mac user. I hope to do the challenge soon, but been a bit busy this weekend. :3 I also need to figure out what the heck I'm going to do for it xD

And by the way, did I ever tell you that I love Charmander? Congrats

Well...well...well...there's a lot of RNG abuses going around, right? Well, I present my RNG abuse for the current challenge...


No.393 Piplup, Lv.1 (UT), Naive nature, Torrent ability.
OT Jason, ID No. 56796.
Moves: Pound / Surf / Cut / Waterfall
IVs: Unknown
EVs: None

Just like the Zubat, it's only shiny. The IVs are bad. I'd like to go to RNG abusing IVs, but it's really hard. The delays are really hard.

I chose Piplup because penguins may be a pet...it's pretty cute, like some pets (if you'd say Piplup is a penguin) and owning a Pokemon is also a bit similar to having a pet. The whole reasoning thing is pretty hard. I actually did Piplup because I just felt like I'd like to do so.

I did the challenge, but it took such a long time! The NPCs kept trolling me :( I kept hitting one frame off, which was Maractus. Now I hate Maractus.




Dwebble
Sturdy|lvl. 20|Jolly
31|31|31|21|31|31
Sand-Attack|Faint Attack|Smack Down|Rock Polish

I imagine dwebble being a great pet, it's like a little hermit crab you'd keep in a terrarium. It's pretty small so it's easy to keep around, and it's just so very cute!

EDIT:

Decided to abuse this seed a bit more as the frame next to the one above is a shiny sandile, so here he is!



Sandile
Moxie|lvl. 19|Jolly
31|31|31|21|31|31
Torment|Sand Tomb|Assurance|Mud-Slap

Both nice RNGs and good pet choices I like seeing some unique entries. For the challenge, I chose something that most of you probably wouldn't even thought of. I wanted a Pokemon that is cute, but also useful as a pet. So I went with...


Chinchou ♂ Lv. 40
OT: Luna | ID: 4440
Nature: Calm
Ability: Volt Absorb
IVs: 31, 5, 31, 31, 31, 31 Dark 68
EVs: Untrained
Moves: BubbleBeam, Heal Bell, Discharge, Ice Beam
Non-Redis

Chinchou! It's cute and who wouldn't want one swimming around in a giant tank in your house? You could go surfing on it too, but try not to get shocked I don't know, I just think it'd be a cool pet :B

The latest Reporter is 9.95 -- you can get the link from the Trade Corner Chat... or I could just paste it here.

And for your abuse... just think about anything really.

omg ihu vaporeon. :( I love sheep and I would totally want one as a pet! Can I have yours? I'll find something else though. :3 I did RNG a few things this weekend! Nothing worth trading though, as they were personal things. Shiny Torchic for my sister, to show her the awesomeness that is RNGing. And a shiny Larvitar for my HG file, cause I couldn't think of a good 6th Pokemon. I did get my Modest Hydro Pump Bagon though! :) 270 taps BUT I GOT IT SO IDC. :D

edit: Here is my fuzzy aminal. <3


Rush / Eevee lv. 1 (m)
Adamant | Run Away
Ganon | 11057
IVs unknown
[ Helping Hand, Wish, Toxic, Protect ]
-meant to be Flareon or Leafeon-

Who wouldn't want a fuzzy Eevee for a pet?! Look at it! :3

Do you plan your RNG abuses? Do you have a list or something or are they rather spontaneous? Feel free to discuss as long as you like.
I kinda do but I kinda don't. ;D I have made lists of Pokemon I'd like or need to breed but can't get myself in the mood unless I am suddenly inspired. Dive balls are usually involved, ekeke. :3~


I wasn't gonna bother doing challenges this week, but my obvious and dear choice for a pet: hedgehog. They're so adorable and curl up into a ball and rolling around at the speed of sound and see what i just did there and d'awww. ^__^

Time for the new challenge! :3

Long-forgotten type Challenge!
There was a placeholder for Bird type in games of Gen I and II, but the idea was dropped. Go get a Bird Pokemon!

Just hatched! Took allllllll freaking day, and I actually got it when just doing it for the hell of it, not thinking I'd actually hatch it lol. I was about to give up and just go with the frame after this one, because I kept hitting that one instead, and the only difference between them was that one was shiny and the other wasn't. Oh and first RNG'd egg in Black yay. Are the IVs okay? :( At least for a first try?


Verona / Swablu (f) lv. 1
Modest | Natural Cure
Cedric | 26099

-hatched in dreamyard-


Anyway, I chose Swablu because it's (well more of Altaria tbh) the Challenge forum mascot lol. Reason being is because on day in the CI&D I said something about how I was the Altaria and all the regulars were my fluffy little Swablus. But this is more like Swablorange. I should have named her that but oh well. I'm glad I finally got her though! She's fluffy.

Archen
lvl:25
Hasty Nature
i forgot the iv's thoguh i think it's good
from the Nacrene Museum



------------------------


and yes, it might not be flying bot still a bird

Proud to present my first Breeding RNG

Pip
Lv: 1
Calm Nature
31/31/30/31/31/31
it only knows pound though.Lol


I used my Japanese Prinplup for it.

It Took Me three tries today to hatch it right, i hatch two shinies but not Calm nature like i wanted, they're gentle. Funny thing when you use international breeding is that, there is like 5 consecutive shiny frames together, easy to hatch shiny, though you can't use an everstone.

Well, after picking up tips from this thread, TB's guide and general fiddling around and practice, I've done these RNGs so far:

Since I haven't been doing it long, I'm quite pleased. :D

Wow you're doing a lot better than me Horizon. ;o; I do have some stationary legendaries in my English White I can RNG later though, so that's good. And I still have those Regis in Platinum but UGH I don't feel like learning about delay todayyyyy and I said I would. :( I also have another breeding project in mind, but idk if I wanna do it in gen IV or V because gen IV has all the moves like jagger that I want, but gen V I can work on IVs so idk what to do lol. :( :( :(

Also after what Loucas said, I'm totes using international parents more often lol. I tend to do that only if I don't have another Pokemon to use, so I use my Jap Ditto (or English cause I do have a lot of Jap Pokes already).
