RNG question

#1jp134711Posted 10/4/2012 9:58:53 PM
I'm trying to RNG breed ferroseed and I've been able to consistently (3 times in a row) hit shiny and the nature that I want. I thought that I hit my target frame, but for some reason I can't seem to hit the IV spread that I specified in Time Finder. I'm listening to the Chatot sounds and that's how I'm basing my flips so I can hit shiny consistently. Is there anything else that I need to take into account? Thanks!

Likely what's happening is that the seed you are using has many shiny spreads close together, so while you are hitting a shiny spread, it's not the one you want.

What is your seed, what are the IVs of the parents, and what is the IV spread you want to get? Also, what are the IVs of the shiny Ferroseed you are getting? I can help narrow down the problem if I know these things.

My seed is 040630C314BCE3AD. Mother IVs: 02/23/27/20/21/14 (Ferrothorn); Father IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31 (Japanese Ditto)

Target IV: 31/31/31/9/31/6 (this was the best compromise - I couldn't get a hit on 0 IV for Speed even with changing the min/max frames and adding button presses - I currently have "None").

I have 3 ferroseeds, 2 of which have the same IVs: 26/14/22/09/31/06
The other ferroseed has 04/28/22/31/31/22

I do notice several shiny frames close together. However only two of them have the Relaxed nature next to each other. I was expecting that if I hit one or the other, I would be able to get the target IV spread.

Thanks for your help!

Hm. I'd also need to know your ID numbers to see which frames would be shiny, but from the IV spreads you're giving me, it seems like you're not hitting your seed. Unless those are off, they don't seem to be possible with this seed. It may be possible that an adjacent seed has shiny frames as well, and you're getting those instead.

If you're not hitting your seed, it's likely a timer0 issue, which means you should just reset the time and try again. I'd need to know a little more information to really pinpoint the problem, but from what you've given me, it does seem to be that you're not hitting the correct seed.

Have you been hitting the nature? Or have you not. Also make sure you have the "Ditto Parent" box checked. And that you are under BW International Breeding.

@ iswag, yes I've been able to get the same nature all 3 times

@homerowed, here are my other info:

PID: 05895
SID: 19173
DS MAC: 0009BF59EA6A
Timer0: C7C

For my timer0, I tried to calibrate it as best as I could. I did it about 12 times and 9/12 of the time I hit the same pokemon with same everything. I also account for the 1 second delay in the DS original (so I start my first button press when the clock hits 1 second before the target second).

The chatot pitches match exactly with the frames that the seed gives me, so it's weird that I'm getting different IV spreads.

Homerowed is much better with explantions than I am. She will most likely set you right, and she's probably right by saying you aren't hitting your seed, even though it sounds like you are to me.

I've never really heard of getting the exact chatot pitches with the wrong spread result.

Yeah, I'd still need to know a bit more in order to check adjacent seeds, but I still think that's the issue. Like I said, none of the IV spreads you've been getting will match with the seed you gave me. It's hard to say what exactly the issue may be without knowing the adjacent seeds, but they may also match up decently with the Chatot pitches as well.

I'd suggest maybe trying to find another seed to use. Even just using one keypress will give you many more options.

If I have time tomorrow or over the weekend, I can try to help more. I've got some homework I need to finish now, however. Sorry about that.
