About This File

This page contains several savefiles dumped from cartridges that were distributed a plethora of event pokemon directly from the Pokemon Center New York PCNY distribution hardware that recently surfaced. Hopefully it provides enough public satisfaction for everyone, while the preservation team undertakes this grand and lengthy task of hopefully enabling the software to become usable via emulation, as well as hopefully producing hardware mods for a publicly feasible physical method of distributing. This is our most major project by a long shot and will likely take quite some time, however now that everything is permanently in Project Pokemon's possession, any roadblocks toward the final goals would be on the technical side. Luckily the best minds are at work on each aspect of this project, so without revealing any further details in regards to that, have patience and remain optimistic.

--------------------

For Generation III, a full box per campaign was distributed, with the TID for each incrementing from 00001 to 00030. The Ruby savefile is a male trainer so the OT names are all blue colored, and was loaded using the PCNYc memory card in Slot B of the NR GameCube. The Sapphire savefile is a female trainer so the OT names are all red colored, and was loaded using the PCNYd memory card in Slot B of the NR GameCube. Seven Gen 3 campaigns were preserved from the Slot A memory cards obtained. Each box in both savefiles have at least a few of every pokemon from the respective campaigns.

For Generation II, three full boxes per campaign were distributed, with the TID for each incrementing from 00001 to 00060. This Gold savefile was loaded using the PCNYc memory card in Slot B of the NR GameCube. Four Gen 2 campaigns were preserved from the Slot A memory cards obtained. Each box will have at least a few of every pokemon from the respective campaigns, even those with normally extremely rare unlikely odds.

What's New in Version   See changelog

Released

Removed extra lines of hex following the footer of the Gen 2 savefile. This gets added when you run Gen 2 saves in an emulator for RTC data, which will cause errors when trying to rewrite to physical cartridges.

@Deoxyz Gen 2 saves missing? :x

He hasn't gotten the chance to dump them/retrieve the Pokemon yet, the Gen2 information is mostly a placeholder for now I believe.

@theSLAYER I mentioned in the second paragraph that Gen 2 will be ideally uploaded in a few days, as it is still being filled up with pokemon. My limited free time, and the need to zero out the Gen 2 software's unique "one-pokemon-per-campaign" date flag in the save's hex between each distribution, all makes it take a bit of time. The reason I uploaded the Gen 3 saves now instead of waiting until I also had the Gen 2 save is because this link is needed before Saturday morning to go along with some further public documentation. Ideally I'll have the Gen 2 save uploaded by or on Saturday, but no guarantee.

@TheSchilling Are you referring to the campaign data from the actual distribution machine's memory cards? All of the machine's software and data are totally unusable unless you have the original machine in your possession, so there's no point in anyone uploading them until we have an emulation or public hardware solution available. Which if you refer to my explanation in the main post, it will likely take quite some time. Don't worry, the data is in possession of enough people to where it won't end up being lost. It will eventually be public one way or another, I will make sure of that.

Is there anyway to not have them Flagged as Illegal?  Or is it still possible to take these pokemon and put them into Bank/Home without worry?

No, because the location isn't possible to obtain in-game.

Bank/HOME has horrible hack checks. but you won't be free from worry.

PKHeX does not have most older events properly documented, so you will often see older events marked as illegal even though they are not.

PCNY is marked illegal on purpose so legality checkers can spot check them from fakes among hundreds of Pokemon on a save.

PID is BACD_U_AX

But Home would still consider it illegal and therefore its not a safe assumption to put it in?

Looking forward to see if Gen 2 are going to pass through Bank and then HOME. When they become available, I'll try this and post the results.

I don't have any familiarity with Home, ithough f if it's anything like Pokebank when it first went online I assume the hack checks are a ludicrous mess. Bad hacks may easily go through, legit stuff may be a no go.

Regardless, these are 100% legitimate pokemon events, so in theory they should go through with now problem. Does not matter what PKHeX says.

I never experienced any validation issues (if there is any) when using a game that can interact with Bank directly (Gen 6 & 7), only with Transporter. That's why my plan is to import the event mons into my Crystal VC save and then to Bank to see if they will be accepted or not, and I assume that if a mon went through Transporter it will go to HOME without issues.

I'm well aware of that, I am just sussing out the rest of the details in regards to if they would be accepted or determined hacked.

I figured I should also make this note before anyone asks, about why the Johto Legend campaign has TID 00061. Well my save corrupted when I distributed TID 00050, so I had to restore my last backup from after TID 00049. It took me too much time to start over at that point over one little hiccup, so I went up to TID 00061 so 60 pokemon from the campaign were still provided.

What we can learn from this is to reference what @Gold Ursaring said here, and assume it is arguably indeed true about the machine itself, and not kids pulling carts out at the wrong time causing the corruption.

The Gold savefile and pk2s are finally uploaded!

I tried to move the Lugia, Ho-oh, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Mew and Celebi (all of them shiny) from Crystal to Bank through Transporter. All of them passed with the exception of the Mew and Celebi. I'll try with the rest and post the results.

Also confirming that the Pokémon who went to Bank successfully moved to HOME.

Tried every Mew and Celebi, none of them will transfer through Transporter to Bank, even after resetting the moves that PKHeX considered illegal, and I'm pretty sure that the other Pokémon and eggs will transfer just fine. Maybe importing the Mew and Celebi directly to a Gen 7 save and then to Bank would work but I'm not willing to do that.

Transporter probably blocks Event location, which would be smart of them to do.

So what's campaign 2 then?

EDIT: Are these a different set of distributions than the ones that had the weird moves on em (like Zap Cannon Squirtle for Gen 2 or Wish Chansey for Gen 3)?

I think @Sabresite was either saying or just assuming that Campaign 2 is the Pokemon Box Promo, but he can clarify.

Yes, all Gen 2 PCNY egg distributions have special moves. Not the legendaries. These particular Gen 3 pokemon here don't have special moves, and most others don't, but there were Wish Egg distributions for Gen 3 at PCNY. The Wish Eggs were a distributed from a GBA devcart by sending a wondercard via link cable, like the Aurora Ticket. We may hopefully see that software surface sometime. 🙂

You are not supposed to be able to move Crystal to HOME because VC Crystal doesn't have legit access to PCNY events.

As for campaign 2, it's a guess.

As for Gen 3 Wish eggs, those were distributed via wondercard, not using PCNY.

A question, these sav that you came up with the event pokemon, are they legitimate ?, that is, have you rescued them from an old game or how did you get them ?, since for example, Gold Ursaring saved his game and was able to share his pokemon with us of event, but what you have uploaded seems more done in pkhex or not, please clarify that doubt, I like to collect these event pokemon, but clearly I need to know if they are legitimate. thanks.
