How do you get this to run on Dolphin? I downloaded it but dolphin says it cant find any games to run. Im not tech savvy at all and cant find anything to help

Did you patch your ISO file already, or did you only downloaded the patch?

Just finished a full playthrough (technically) and had zero issues apart from one. I wasnt able to get sableye to spawn since i lost to Smarton on the S.S Libra with no way to rematch. now mirror B wont spawn and ive caught and purified every pokemon other than this sableye and ho-oh. other than this, everything was perfect.

When the battle was over, did it say Sableye fled? I ran into a similar issue with the

Spoiler

endgame trying to catch Lickitung as it uses shadow explosion and kills itself. I had to exit Agate village and come back in in order to rebattle and he had the Lickitung once more.

Hey so um, i accidentally deleted my Swellows Aerial Ace attack and its not showing up in the move learner List. Can't find any TMs with it either

Swellow turns out to be solid as a Special Attacker in the game as well, but if you want Aerial Ace it's one of the TMs bought at Realgam Tower.

Started a new game recently since i love this rom hack but i have one question. Is there any way to reduce EV of pokemon? I thought i remember doing it in past playthoughs but i could be wrong. @StarsMmd thanks again for making this rom hack its my favorite pokemon game to replay of all time.

I just started the game in my wii with Nintendont and I'm curious if there is a way to reduce certain EV from a pokemon. I know that you can get berries from Berry Master from Agate Village, but they are random.

It also needs to be a Redump verified .ISO file. In other words, it needs to have a CRC-32 of c0f69d18, an md5 of 3bc1671806cf763a8712a5d398f62ad3, and a SHA-1 of c1b5218f832403d15aa500ac4d6aacc8865c792d. If one of those does not match, you'll need a different ISO. Sharing ISOs is against the rules here, so you're on your own there.

Corrupted Save files

  Reveal hidden contents

 

A lot of people have been getting their save files corrupted. This is due to anti cheat measures in XD. It's most commonly caused by abusing save states in Dolphin. In XD, your previous save files are kept and referred to when you save. If, for example, you have a new save file with less play time than the previous save file then it is considered corrupted. This happens if you load a state save from before your most recent manual save. Use your save states wisely!

Basically, if you do an in-game save, don't load any saved states from before the manual save. ?

Notes:

  Reveal hidden contents

Compatibility

Since a lot of things have been added/removed/replaced in XG it doesn't work as intended with save editors. It isn't 100% compatible with vanilla XD/GBA games.

Pokemon Changes

Some pokemon have had their types and stats changed. There are a few minor stat buffs and new abilities to increase viability and more closely match gen 7 stats.

All the pokemon that gained the fairy typing in gen 6 will have the fairy type in XG. In addition, Altaria is Dragon/Fairy and Sceptile is Grass/Dragon

Realgam Tower

Battle sims in Realgam tower have been temporarily removed on purpose so if you talk to the receptionist she will do nothing.

FAQs:

  Reveal hidden contents

How complete is this hack?

It is essentially done. You can play through from start to end and everything that I want to implement has been implemented. The only thing left is to fix battle CDs. I release updates for minor bug fixes or changes based on feedback.

Why did/didn't you _____ ?

Some things just aren't possible right now or are too time consuming so some decisions may seem really weird but were the best I could do. I'm still working on the game though and I'm open to suggestions/feedback so over time things should improve :)

Why aren’t there more shadow pokemon?

  Reveal hidden contents

The game has a hard limit of 128 shadow pokemon. It's extremely difficult to increase this limit. Plus too many shadow pokemon would make catching them all very tedious.

Why is/isn’t there a shadow ____ in this game?

  Reveal hidden contents

The shadow pokemon were chosen very carefully since there are only a limited number available. There are currently 122 (original "XD" has 83) and 25 pokemon per pokespot so most pokemon are now available. Unfortunately not every pokemon made the cut but I think most people should be satisfied. 

Is it possible to add gen 4+ mons / fakemons?

  Reveal hidden contents

It will be possible soon-ish but not quite yet. 

Is it possible to make all shadow pokemon have dark skins like shadow lugia?

  Reveal hidden contents

yes but it isn't worth the effort.

Does this hack work on nintendon’t/dolphin?

  Reveal hidden contents

Yes.

Is it possible to randomise Pokemon XD?

  Reveal hidden contents

Yes.

Special Thanks

 Hi,

My game keeps crashing and doesn't even load anymore since I got to oasis area. Update 1.2.1-3.

Can't find any help anywhere after patch 1.1

Using dolphin emulator, never had an issue with a game before now 

Also worth mentioning game runs very smooth. Then it suddenly crashed, attempted it twice. (Deleting and restarting) did it in the same place both times.
