Black 2 RNG Question

#1LegendofLink17Posted 12/27/2013 7:55:39 PM
Hello all, I posted this on the Black 2 board but it's pretty dead over there these days, so maybe I can find some help here.

Anyways, it's my first time trying to RNG something and I'll admit I've gained respect for those who are patient enough to do it well. I'm trying to get a flawless ditto and here's where I stand:

I've already found all of the parameters and I believe them to be correct as I checked it multiple times. So in the time finder, I have set the year to 2013 and all months, and since I believe that I understand how frame advancing works, I set the min at 1 and max at 100. The Method is set to "IVs (Standard Seed)" and Encounter Type to "Wild Pokemon." Using the Black 2 encounter table, I saw that Ditto is either Encounter slot 3 or 6, so after entering those and all 31s for the IVs, I generated the seeds.

The first time I tried doing a seed that needed to have an encounter at frame 3. After advancing the frame two times and encountering a wild pokemon, it was a flawless piloswine (I caught it and checked the IVs). So i tried several more times and captured this same Piloswine about every other time. Then I tried a seed that needed to have the frame advanced 25 times, and I caught a flawless Solrock several times.

So my question is, is the pokemon that is encountered completely random or do I need to take different steps to ensure a Ditto? Thanks in advance

Waste of time. Just use pokegen and you will end up with the same product at the end.

Correct me if im wrong but i believe encounter slots are determined by pidrng, not MT.

I haven't tried RNG yet but it seems people get their dittos on hidden grottos. They RNG to make sure a Ditto shows up and RNG again for a stationary Ditto to ensure 6IVs.
