My RNG experience (omg this aint 10 minutes quick and easy you ppl lied to me)

Since I breeding every other egg pokemon I wanted in the game I thought I'd give some RNGing a go to get some wifi capable legendaries/genderless mons.
After dismissing it as easy and kind of a cheat I was surprised to find omg this is literally as hard as breeding when done properly. Most if not all the youtube guides are by people who cut corners and either AR to find the frame, their hidden ID, items, IVs, chatots or shinyness (seriously no offense but if you hax to get those things your really losing the leg to stand on when you say your rng is 100% legit just go pokedit dude).
So I started on my W2 game and got literally no where with the Timer0 bouncing around madly and could find on consistency at all to even get a calibration. Thus I moved back to white where I had not caught the 3 musketeers and begin trying to catch them. On white is wasnt as hard and I managed to get my white calibration get cobalion with some pretty nice stats but ofc timd nature even with syn....doh. So i hit the seed again and timid nature again....grrr (please note I had about 3-4 missed seeds between its annoying to hit a 1second window when you have to hit your clock match and timer second). So i tried some of the other seeds given to me and one luckily had frame 1 as a syn (hadnt worked out the whole frame thing yet). So I did the same and got the other two legendary musketeers. Must of taken about 4-5 hours in total of work to this point so not too bad.
So onwards I went to giant chasm to catch metang and a starya while surfing. All I have to say is there is no way 90% of the people who claim all their hundreds of flawless pokemon they got themselves are RNG'd legit. I really cannot see the vast majority who say they RNG because they can't be bothered to breed for stats spending the hours required to properly do this I mean I'll be happy do do it for maybe 5-10 pokemon I want for my team but doing it for dunsparce and filling a dex with them....no way.
RNGing a low spawn pokemon in grass or on water is a true pain (sure you could egg breed but got to do a flawless/high IV ditto in grass first ;p). Starting frame, wandering npcs and wtf spawn/frame did I even hit is an incredibly painful and frustrating thing. I can only imagine how bad a tornadus would be and admire anyone who has done it.
Anyway I will continue my RNG quest to get Staryu (I got metang) and following my work have changed my opinion somewhat on RNG. Big respect to anyone who properly RNGs without resorting to shortcuts.
