You can't RNG eggs in BW2 either, from what I understand.

So me using a copy of Black 2 to do whatever isn't going to help much?

Because from what I tried, everything went through fine and dandy but no results came up.

Oh and btw I'm on a mac so that's another thing. does ppppppppprng or whatever work just like the other one?

You can still do capture RNG on B2W2 but not breeding. PPRNG from what I heard is a lot simpler to use than RNG reporter. I don't actually know since I don't have a Mac but that's what I heard... from Mac. Heh!

Well damn there goes that grovyle

But my question…why isn't my pprng returning any values? I don't think that's supposed to happen lol

And just to make sure, the IV "range" is the possible IVs, or what?

I use PPRNG and trust me, it's fierce and much better than RNG Reporter. I thought I wasn't gonna like it, but I was wrong.

What do you mean IV range? Perhaps you could screenshot and point out what you're talking about. Do you mean that thing that's automatically at 8? If that's what you're talking about, just leave it at 8 and don't pay attention to it. lol

    Definitely true. PPRNG is a superior program and much more intuitive. It just plain runs better as well.. and with the seed cache, finding BW1 egg seeds is so much faster.

    The default "0-31" things on the bottom. I'll provide a screenshot when I have a chance.

      31 is the highest IV while 0 is the lowest. Select what you want. Top is minimum, bottom is max.

      Yes, but whenever I set them, the result is either more than a thousand or none at all.

      You're getting no results when you search for a flawless? Hm. Considering it's wild encounters, I'm sure it's a bit more difficult to find what you're looking for as flawless. I haven't RNG'd BW2 yet and definitely haven't RNG'd a wild encounter with PPRNG since I've had it, but I can tell you that it is more difficult to find a seed for a wild encounter than it would take for an egg.

      Maybe change the IV range? What exactly are you trying to RNG anyway? If it's something like Petilil, or anything else that's a special sweeper, try searching "special flawless" and that should get you some results.

      1000 results is pretty good though idk why you say that like it's a bad thing! :P

      Oh maybe I should clarify. The parameters setting.

      I'm stuck on the very first section.

      Lol

      Oh! See that helps a lot haha. I thought you were searching for seeds already.

      I myself haven't done parameters on PPRNG yet, so I can't really help much. It's been a long time since I've done them as well. Okay, now that I know it's parameters though, I know what you're talking about with IV range. When you catch that random wild Pokemon, you have to use an IV calculator to figure up its IVs and that's what goes in the IV range thing.

      Say I caught a Boldore and used the IV calculator and it came up 1-5 IVs in HP, 24-30 for attack, etc, you put in that range in that IV range area. So I'd put 1 as min and 5 as max in the HP slot, and so on and so forth. That make sense? I have PPRNG open so I can look at it and help more if need be. :)

      Oh okay so I was doing it right.

      But then I clicked "search" and it completed the search, and it either ends up blank or it gives me an error that says "thin down the IVs you dummy", which is honestly the only two results I can get from it.

      If it ends up with no result, I'd just try again. What calculator are you using?

      I'm using the serebii.net one. It should be reliable enough, right?

      Well, personally I use Metalkid's IV calculator. You might try using it. I've found it very accurate.

      I've heard it is, but back when I got my parameters, I used the calculator that RNG Reporter had. Does PPRNG not offer one?

      I'd use MetalKids IV Calculator like Omicron sugested. The Serebii one is terribly inaccurate.

        Definitely a great IV calculator right there.

        Okay, so everything is in order now.

          For B2W2, you need to do at least ten calibrations due to the multiple timer0s. You then input that information in your configuration.

            Hopefully I'm asking in the right place. I just did my parameters and RNG reporter under my profile it says my timer0 min is C7E and my max timer0 is C7E, is there something to be concerned about, or does it just mean I won't get timer0 trolled? I'm using a DS lite and a retail copy of White, if it matters. I had repel on when I did my parameters but I did do Sweet Scent in the last room of Victory Road immediatly after loading the game.

            No, that's normal. Did you do the parameters thing a couple of times? What you wanna do is do the parameters and see which timer0 pops up most frequently. The most frequent one is the one you're gonna want to try hitting once you start to RNG.

              Don't worry, you won't be trolled too much by t0 in White. Possible t0s you'll be getting is C7E + or - 1 (C7D or C7F, but I haven't seen C7D pop-up yet). Just stick to the t0 that you've been getting most of the time.

                Thanks Griffin and Musica, after doing what you guys said I found out it was C7E-C7F, and about 70% of the time I got C7E thanks.
