I’ve checked the timer0 and I’m constantly getting the same one c7c and I’m using the correct countdown but nothing matches my frame/seed/iv/nature/chatot with what I’m getting when I use sweet scent and I’m not walking either. It’s more frustrating because I mastered it on my black 2 and it was a breeze then so I can’t see what I’m doing wrong here.The screenshots look fine, thanks. The process is the same as BW2, so if you were able to do that, you shouldn't really have a problem with Black.
Not getting your IVs means you didn't hit your seed (unless you're walking instead of sweet scenting, in which case you may be advancing the frame), which would be regardless of your shiny target. The most likely issue is timer0 trolling, but you may have also missed your seed because you didn't recalibrate from Black 2 (your parameters are different in Black) or you're starting your game at the wrong time. I will say you don't really need the eon timer: You only need to be accurate to the second, so given a DS lite you'd likely be fine with just pressing A to start the game on the DS menu 1 second before your seed time (here, 5 seconds after the minute). You said you're entering the time exactly as it says into your DS. You'd want to set the time at least a minute before so that you can actually start your game 5 seconds after 00:42. Note that I'm assuming your delay is 1 second, but use whatever value you got from calibration.
If you think it could be timer0 trolling, you can use the adjacent seed tool (main window > 5th Gen tools > Adjacent Seed Tool) to check the Timer0s on either side of the one in your profile. The information you need to enter is the same as the info for your seed from the Time Finder. Using that tool may tell you if your timer0 was wrong, or you're starting at the wrong seconds.
