A new version has been uploaded.
The PID generator will be updated next, assuming no other problems are discovered. After that, I'll see about adding the ability to generate more than one Pokemon at a time.
Hey codr, I used your program to make my pokemon and I got the code that I wanted. How do I transfer this code to my ds?
I have the Action Replay but using the Action Replay Code Manager, I do not know how to take a saved file from your program and putting it into the Code Manager. If you could step me through it would be great.
I love your tool, but how do I find my hidden trainer ID?
Is it possible to some how add a 2nd type to pokemon who are only 1 type? I want a ghost - dark pokemon but both sable eye and spiritomb look completely crap. So like i was thinking is it possible to like add ghost type to umbreon?
Just a thought...
Just wanted to say thanks for making this program. I've successfully used it to create some "legal" pokes for my games and it's been the easiest and most pain free method I've come across to make pokemon for my games.
Is there anyway to keep Shaymin is sky form permanently? He reverts to land form in the night or when he's frozen. He's land form looks crap. Have to wait til day to revert him again
Anyway for permanent sky form???????????????????????????????????
Hey, I found your program last night and I really like it ^_^ It's very straight forward. I have to enter all the codes manually cause my computer is a 64 bit OS which is kinda a pain, 38 lines of code per pokemon XP but anyway, that's what leads me to post here. You've been mentioning that you plan on updating the program and I was wondering if there is any way you could include a box that would let us set which Characteristic we'd like our pokemon to have? (ie: Mischievous, Likes to thrash about, etc.) Last night I made a Misdreavus for myself and put it into the game. The whole reason I want to use a pokemon creator program rather than catching a wild one is because the chances of finding a Misdreavus with the gender, nature and characteristic I want is 1/1500 (and that's not even taking into account the chances of encountering one to begin with.) So after making it and entering all 38 lines of code I found it in the box and the characteristic was wrong. I tried turning off the power and starting the code again but it's the same every time. This is even more ineffectual that catching a wild one I think. I don't want to use the program to make super cheat pokemon that are unbeatable, I'd just like to be able to have the initial properties of the pokemon be to my liking and then I can train them legitimately within the game. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Oh, I had a couple other questions about the program.
1. On the PID generator screen, what is the Method thing? I don't understand what any of the options are/mean.
2. What is the Extra Bytes thing? What do the different option mean/do?
I just did a bit of searching and found that these "characteristics" are determined by IVs. The highest IV's value determines what it is. I don't have a list at the moment for you, but http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...6063436AAi8JZB is where I got the information from. I tested and it seems accurate. To add to what's on that page, if all IVs are the same value, it then uses the PID to determine the message.You've been mentioning that you plan on updating the program and I was wondering if there is any way you could include a box that would let us set which Characteristic we'd like our pokemon to have? (ie: Mischievous, Likes to thrash about, etc.)
To answer your question, yes, I can add that at some point, but for now, you'll have to figure it out manually. I can't do a quick add for it at the moment as the program is in the middle of some significant changes.
http://www.smogon.com/ingame/rng/pid_iv_creation can answer your question in detail. To be brief though: when a PID is generated by the game, it's done by two random numbers being combined. There are then two more numbers that're randomly generated to determine the IVs. The methods listed describe the sequence of random numbers.1. On the PID generator screen, what is the Method thing? I don't understand what any of the options are/mean.
For example, A-B-C-D means that the first four random numbers were used. A-C-D-E would mean that the first was used, the second was skipped, and the third through fifth were used. This is an important part of Pokemon legality. The generation 4 games supposedly always use method 1 when generating a Pokemon. Event Pokemon can have method 10 or 11 from what I know.
As the tooltip says, there are extra bytes (meaning extra data) that we either don't know the purpose of or the data just isn't used by the game. I've provided a way for them to be edited in the event that it's discovered that these bytes ARE needed for legality purposes.2. What is the Extra Bytes thing? What do the different option mean/do?
