maybe it's because we mod smart people and smart people tend to share a lot of the same characteristics.....

Decided to try RNGing again after a VERY long break. I think it turned out pretty good for not having done it for a while. Hope to do more since it is so much more handy with PPRNG for iOS.

So I have 4 flawless eggs on my Y version. Anyone want to help me find their shiny values?
Spoiler:- My Custom Challenges:
Not sure if this thread is still active or if there's another thread somewhere, but here goes anyway:
I'm new to gen 5 rng (I have White 2). I did manage to succesfully rng a 5iv shiny Virizion so I know I'm doing something right. Since then I've been trying to rng terrakion and cobalion with no luck. I have a couple of questions I haven't been able to find an answer to.
1. I know there are multiple Timer0's in BW2. In theory, can I rng with any of them since it's kinda random which one is chosen, or do I have to use a spesific one? I caught Virizion with the first Timer0 the program found for me, but I've noticed I keep hitting another one more often.
2. The seed I found would give me a jolly 31/31/31/0/31/31 stationary and only requires 3 frame advancements for a shiny. I've hit the seed multiple times but didn't get a shiny after the advances. Are the wandering NPCs affecting the frame on these routes (22 and 13) so that it's impossible to get a shiny with that seed and so few frame asvances? Should I use another seed? Also, is there a list somewhere for routes / areas with no WNPCs?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is all still very confusing for me.
As for the NPCs, yes, they will advance the PIDRNG. If you're aiming for a PIDRNG frame 3 frames after the starting frame then the NPCs in the area will make it impossible for you to hit that frame. You'll need a frame farther in.
I'll try to find another seed with other Timer0. I already know my most common one so I'll go with that now. I'll post/update if and when I get results.
Just a few more things:
Is there some sort of average on how much NPCs affect the frame? E.g. should I pick a seed with at least 50 frame advancements to be sure I won't accidentally end up too far?
And lastly, when do the NPCs advance the frame? As soon as I enter the game, after I've listened to Chatots, both, or is it just random? What I mean is that if my target is frame 70, is it possible that I'd need to stop already somewhere far before 69 to actually end up in 70. Hope you understand what I mean.
Edit: Just caught perfect shiny Terrakion! The target frame was 179 and I advances 'till 178 as usual. Frames started about 5 later than RNG reporter said they would but that's just the NPCs then. Guess that answers everything I wanted to know then. Thanks once more for your help.

You should have no problem using a seed with 3 advances in an area with no NPCs.
As for how many frames the NPCs will advance, there is no set number. If there is only 1 NPC in the area it won't be too far off from what RNGR tells you, but when there are multiple NPCs it can get pretty out of hand (B/W2 Uxie gave a lot of people hell). The NPCs can advance the frame both before you pull up the start menu and after you close it. So long as you are quick about closing the menu and starting the battle you shouldn't have any issues (though the occasional fast moving NPCs can still throw things off), but if you take to long to start the battle, or sweet scent, then the NPCs will keep doing there thing.
Congrats on the successful RNG though! Personally, I think shiny Terrakion is a sexy beast
