Help finding my SID!

#1TaruKevinPosted 6/4/2012 1:11:46 PM
I'm trying to find my SID number w/o the use of AR. I have tried 2 different methods (luckily I have a legit shiny), but both produced varying and seemingly incorrect results.

I have tried to use pokčcheck to find it, but my pokčmon keep getting sent through the GTS w/o getting the error code.

What else can I do to find it?

If I trade a randomly caught pokčmon to somebody, would they be able to check for me with AR?

Thanks for the help/advice!

First, it is no longer possible to find your SID by using a shiny, finding its PID, xoring it with your ID, etc. IVs and PIDs no longer have any relation in gen 5.

Second, make sure you've got the DNS set correctly when using Pokecheck. It's at the top of the page in the red box.

You can have someone else check for you, but it's really easier to use Pokecheck if possible.

Ah, well looks like I wasted a LOT of time last night calculating it out lol! Thanks for the heads up.

And yeah, Pokčcheck seems pretty easy; I think it is my internet that is causing the problem.

I live in dorms at my college and the wifi here does not like DS's. So I'm using a tethering app on my phone to connect my DS and the school's wifi to connect my computer. It is proving difficult to get both machines on the same IP address! Lol.

Am I screwed? Should I head to a nearby McDonald's to use their wifi? Lol.

So I finally got my comp and DS connected to my phones hotspot, but it still isn't working for me.

I have checked the DNS several times, reconnected several times, ran the script to see if the IP address was blocking Pokčcheck, and the pokčmon still get sent through to the GTS.

I'm also on my DS lite. Any other problems I should troubleshoot for?

On my last attempt, I put in the pokčcheck DNS in both the primary and secondary spots. Still nothing :(

It's weird, I'm doing everything as I should, but my pokčmon keep getting sent off to the GTS.

I'm supposed to be using legit ones correct? That's all I have. And I am suppose to be connected to the actual internet (I suppose it is the only way to actually make it into the GTS room) correct?

Hmm... I wish they just gave your SID to you lol.

if you can normally use the GTS a computer program called ir-GTS might work for you.

Just finished downloading this as well as Python in order to make it run. Overall though, it didn't work either. I was not able to connect to WFC at all.

Maybe I am just incapable of figuring it out? Lol

Thanks for the help! If anybody knows a 5th method I could try to figure this out, please let me know!

this might help you:

alternatively you can restart your game and RNG your ID/SID (which is a bit of a pain).

or if you can normally access the GTS you could trade a pokemon to a specific person and have then check your SID for you.
