I think this is a great idea by the way guys :D

-Ok so as an update, I've read through a few guides and watched a couple tutorials on YouTube, but still haven't been successful. I've been attempting to RNG in SoulSilver using the Smogon guide for Gen IV, but am stuck at the whole hitting seed/frame advancement. I understand concepts, but I know I'm doing something completely stupid because this last time I tried, I ended up needing to advance 841 frames. I knew something was wrong, but I attempted it anyway and after finally hitting my seed I lost count at 4xx. If anyone could lend a hand, it would be extremely appreciated, thanks.

From the trade room chat I was advised to come here. I was thinking of watching videos to learn the Art of RNG but I feel asking from professionals would be a good step to take. My times of availability are very good so hopefully ill be chosen soon to be a mentee.

Username: Swift
Availability: ANY DAY, ANYTIME until school begins on 8/19 (For Fridays: anytime after 9:10)
Timezone: UTC-06:00 Central Time (US & Canada)
Preferred Game: Gen V (Pokémon Black 2) Played on the 3DS XL
Field of RNG: Never done it, but I have patience to learn the ropes. I would honestly like to start from where the mentor would feel would be the first thing to try out on doing RNG

P.S. - Black 2 Status: Beaten the game. I'm currently going Pokédex hunting, filling up my Pokédex as much as possible before I begin any sort of EV/IV training

UPDATE: I ordered a DS Lite which should arrive on Wednesday/Thursday to make it easier for whomever my mentor is, cuz I've been hearing that trying to RNG on a 3DS will be much harder than standard DS/DSis. Also RNG breeding was out of the question for 3DSs which is an extreme bummer

From the trade room chat I was advised to come here. I was thinking of watching videos to learn the Art of RNG but I feel asking from professionals would be a good step to take. My times of availability are very good so hopefully ill be chosen soon to be a mentee.

So here's my update. Anything changed is marked with an *

P.S. - Black 2 Status: Beaten the game. Caught them all! Now that that is fone I would really love to learn again how RNG works. the more im exposed to it, the more I will know it.

EXTREME REQUEST: Can my mentor be ok with screen sharing Skype calls? I would feel that 1 on 1 tutoring like that would really help out. If not, its ok.
