About This File

Pokémon core series save editor, programmed in C#.

Supports the following files:

  • Save files ("main", *.sav, *.dsv, *.dat, *.gci)
  • GameCube Memory Card files (.raw, .bin) containing GC Pokémon savegames.
  • Individual Pokémon entity files (.pk*)
  • Mystery Gift files (.pgt, .pcd, .pgf, .wc*) including conversion to .pk*
  • Importing teams from Decrypted 3DS Battle Videos
  • 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, JKSM, or SaveDataFiler).

We do not support or condone cheating at the expense of others. Do not use significantly hacked Pokémon in battle or in trades with those who are unaware hacked Pokémon are in use.

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

Just had to review.

Couldnt be more thankful for this program the only down side that im aware of is not being a legal checker for all generation pokemon unless there is a program already out there for it, as some moves are previous generation pokemon so sometimes when I make them there might be another move that its not meant to have as its really tedious to search up every detail, but I won't complain here as nonetheless this program is a huge shortcut itself and allows me to do what I need and recieve the pokemon I can't obtain since black and white I got rid of all my pokemon games so at the moment only have everything X&Y and onwards. Keep doing what you're doing best.

also is there no way to have all wondercard pokemon already inserted in pkhex thats available here HG&SS and onwards

you have my support and I'm sure everyone else that doesn't know where the origin of pkhex is from :)

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.

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

A great Program for those, who haven't enough time to breed competitive Pokemon. Just seems, that the last update somehow broke the legality checking. All my Mons are illegal when i view them, even those i already used online without any problem. When i then klick on the "Illegal"-Sign, a message shows up and says "Legal!". When i click "View" on the same (seemingly legal) Pokemon, it says "Illegal" again. But its not that much of a problem, just be careful what you do, if you want to use your genned Mons online.

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  ^_^"

Thanks, @ Kaphotics

The reason why i registered this account is to say "Thanks" to you.

I am a PVP player. I am not willing to spend 1 second on catching/incubating a pokemon which has the correct nature/IVs/moves.

Your tool "PKHex" help me to save huge amounts of time.

 

Thanks again!

Need help fixing an error : I changed my map position this resulted in my Omega ruby game displaying a black screen when I try to access it. I did not save a backup and am unsure of my original map number (I last saved at the battle resort). Help appreciated. Thanks
