About This File

Pokémon core series save editor, programmed in C#.

Supports the following files:

  • Save files ("main", .sav)
  • Individual Pokémon entity files (.pk*)
  • Mystery Gift files (.pgt, .pcd, .pgf, .wc*) including conversion to .pk*
  • Importing teams from Decrypted Battle Videos (3DS games only)
  • Transferring from one generation to another, converting formats along the way.

Data is displayed in a view which can be edited and saved. The interface can be translated with resource/external text files so that different languages can be supported.

Pokémon Showdown sets and QR codes can be imported/exported to assist in sharing.

Nintendo 3DS savedata containers use an AES MAC that cannot be emulated without the 3DS's keys, thus a resigning service is required (svdt, save_manager, or SaveDataFiler).

The program functions very well. It is capable of editing most aspects of the save file that general users would like it to do (Pokémon, inventory, etc). PKHeX is very good for those wishing to pick up Wonder Cards they've missed or are unwilling to acquire legitimately. It's also capable of removing the "used" flag on Wonder Cards so one may claim the same Wonder Card multiple times. This is great for sharing those exclusive Pokémon with your friends. Occasionally errors occur, though I've yet to experience anything persistent. Much unlike my experience with Micro$oft's Movie Maker, which constantly crashes. Overall, PKHeX is great tool for those wishing to edit their save files, regardless of one's reasons or justifications for doing so.

Awesome
A button for max all IVs and reset all EVs could save a little more time instead of edit one by one
Just go to click on max IVs then Reset Evs and edit the few ones that you require
Thanks for all

Author edit: Already in the program, control click either button for the desired functionality. For more shortcuts, see Options->About PKHeX->Shortcuts

This is such a great tool. It helps people with "life" actually enjoy the game and play competitive.

It is a great software, so thanks for making it!!! Just one issue.
You need to have Island Scanner legal checks. 
I was trying to make a Scolipede, everything was all legal, PKHeX says it is legal, but when I go trade it weather Link trade, Wonder Trade or via the GTS, SuMo sais there is a problem with the Pokemon. 
In SuMo, you can catch Venipede at level 14 on route 4 via Island Scanner. But with the Scanner you can't catch Hidden Ability Pokemon. 
The only time it says Legal, is when I set it to I hatch it from an egg, even though there is still something wrong with Scolipede 
When I did your met suggestion (which was correct, Level 14, Route 4) it says invalid relearn moves
Scolipede isn't the first Pokemon I had this happen to me, But with Togekiss, Charizard, Crobat, and Toucannon (Yes, even with a SuMo Pokemon)
Please fix this issue, it is really starting to annoy me and some other users who are experiencing the same problem. 
Thanks. 
Pictures one through five shows that Scolipede is legal, even though the SuMo games says there is a problem with it
Pictures six through ten, is just showing I changed the met level to level 14, and the  met location on route 4.
It also says that the Hidden Ability is not Possible, but it says Legal on the first set of 5 Pictures?
Doesn't really make sense. I know this is a bug that could easily be fixed..

Good, thanks for the new update. I have some legal issues of some pokemon transferred from 6 Gen to 7Gen. The problem is as shown in image 01: Supertraining Unlocked / Completed. In the options of 6 Gen if you leave them (image 02) but in the options of 7 Gen can not be modified (Image 03) (I know that there is no super training in 7 Gen) but I say it because it marks as not legal to the Pokemon, I have already modified many pokemon and it is a lot of work to do it again not having this function (image 02). I just ask to add it so that I can modify the pokemon that we have already passed on to 7 Gen, I know that a lot of others will have the same problem, please I hope it is solved and continue investigating some other possible drawbacks. Thank you

Wow, this is very handy for speeding up breeding, EV training, and leveling up for Pokémon VGC competitions !

Though now that pokemon bank and poke-transporter have been updated...I look forward to how this program will evolve.

* currently using version "16.12.31" that was uploaded on December 30th, 2016 *

Also, the legality checker is a great inclusion to protect yourself from getting banned from official pokemon events  ^_^"

dont support .sav of sky3ds

error: attempted to load an unsupported file type/size

file Loaded:

D:/PokemonX.sav

file size: 1024000bytes(0xFA000)

Sav of sky3ds

 

theSLAYER Mod edit:
that is because sky3DS and GW .savs are encrypted.
You gotta decrypt the save before Pkhex can read it.

(I'm still waiting for Cyber Save Editor 3DS to support Sun/Moon to be able to use this. And to beat the game first.)

The PKHEX tool is great but, with pokedex opitions is a bit buggy, when you try filling the pokedex pkhex crashes so i propose that you should add a island feature for sun and moon to make it easier and efficient so you don have to keep finding which mon to fill in the pokedex
