          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.

                      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 *

                                Field of RNG: (Capture, Breeding, Wonder Card, RNG ID/SID, Entralink, Roamers): I'd like to try all of it, working my way up from the basics (I've RNG'd before but I never got that good, and it was a while ago), however starters are also a big priority of mine.

                                  I still want to apply even though I have been in the TC chatroom most of my times being here. Im currently trying to RNG solo but I would love to start fresh

                                  *Preferred Game: Gen V (Pokémon Black 2) Currently Played on the DS Lite cuz its easier apparently.
                                  Field of RNG: Currently doing it as I speak. Im going for a shiny pidove in virbank complex. I still want to learn every aspect of RNG to master it. Hope my tutor wont mind my 1000 questions.

                                  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.
