Project Pokémon does not support cheating

Posted at 2016-10-14 14:09:29 GMT by evandixon
Project Pokémon does not support cheating.  This is not a new rule, but we've released a new announcement that should better clarify what exactly counts as "cheating".  It can be found here.

To summarize it, do not battle or trade using hacked Pokémon with opponents who are not aware hacked Pokémon are in use.  Please help us keep everyone's online experience as clean as possible by using hacks responsibly.

Pokemon X/Y ROMs Decrypted

Posted at 2014-05-12 07:49:32 GMT by Bond697
Slashmolder and Bond697 have hit another milestone in their work on the 3DS: ROM decryption. They have managed to decrypt Pokemon X and Y and have dumped their ExeFS and RomFS. The ExeFS is the executable filesystem(the main game engine/binary in the ROM) and the RomFS is the ROM filesystem(the data and CRO portion of the ROM). This will greatly speed up and simplify data mining efforts and also provides access to the rest of the game's code via the CRO files in the ROM filesystem. CROs are the 3DS equivalent of Windows DLLS.

Keep watching this spot for more information as the two continue their work on 3DS hacking!

Pokemon X/Y RAM Dumping And Editing Completed

Posted at 2014-04-12 23:22:36 GMT by Bond697
Bond697 and Slashmolder have managed to accomplish 2 big goals: Pokemon X/Y RAM has been both dumped and edited. They have managed to dump and edit the FCRAM while inside Pokemon X/Y. Slashmolder gave himself a Hoopa and is doing more general testing and Bond697 ripped the Pokemon X ExeFS to begin reverse engineering. This is the start of datamining efforts and will hopefully result in a good deal of new info. Keep watching this spot for more info!
