The Legality Question/Check Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I've been stumped on this one for a while. Six Pokemon and for the life of me I can't figure out what's wrong. All of them are filled out legitimately, level 1 Pokeball egg hatches from the day-care couple... PID all filled out automatically through erasing and then saving/restarting Pokegen... Abilities and Move Sets are all entirely possible, OT matches perfectly, EV total is legitimate... where have I fucked up?

Thanks in advance guys.

When I opened Bisharp/Infernape they had the nickname box unchecked and some weirdness in the escape sequence. Now I'm no expert but I think it should be "Warden\FFFF\0000\0000\0000\FFFF" and "Yorrick\FFFF\0000\0000\FFFF". Still, It seems like a pretty minor error so maybe someone else can see something else wrong there.

Conkeldurr and Magmortar looked fine to me, Gliscor and Golurk had the nickname box unchecked but other than that looked fine.

Oh and I didn't check the PIDs but if you did them like you said I don't see why they would be wrong.

Hi all.

I created an Eevee egg... it passed the Legal.exe. I remember reading that it passes anyway because it's an egg. I was going to test it as a hatched pokemon to see if it still passes, but I'm unsure of how to do this. Would anyone mind double checking it for me?

I used PokeGen 2.312 to create it, and PokeSav to extract the .pkm. Also, the .pkm should have Japanese text.

Thankyou

The GTS exploit in Gen 4 was like that when you didn't have a full party weird things happened like ball capsules and impossible levels. But if your putting the pkm files straight into the .sav then I have no idea why It would be doing that. I have not had that problem at all as of yet.

Just want to say thanks for PokeGen, it's been such a great help. I managed to get the Pokemon I wanted to my game cartridge no problem. My only concern is with random wi-fi in which I am getting rejected. I have been following the guide as well as the video by "BrianRules94" but can't figure it out. I think the culprit is my lack of SID since I don't know it. Could someone please check these Pokemon?

As far as I'm aware your SID can be anything you like up to 65535, the only thing that will happen if it doesn't match yours is the game will assume it's been traded to you but that shouldn't cause any issues. As far as I'm aware the "met" tab stays the same if it was traded from another Black/White game so Volcarona, Jellicent and Bisharp should be ok with any ID.

Now, for Dragonite you have more issues. Multiscale is unreleased as far as I'm aware and he can only have that when the Dream World is available in the UK/US etc. Then you'd need to set game of origin to Black/White and the location to "Entree Forest" and give him an 01 in the 66 (0x42) Trash Byte section. Pretty sure you can use any ball to catch Dream World Pokemon. If you don't care about losing Multiscale then you'll need to either make him caught at Dragonspiral Tower (not Farawayplace) or set it to "(Poketransfer)" and the game of origin to whatever game he's supposed to be from.

Garchomp just needs to have his game of origin set to a game he can actually be caught in (he can't be caught in Black outside of the Dream World).

Tyranitar looks ok to me.

Again, it shouldn't matter what SID you give these Pokemon unless you're fussed about shininess.

Just an extra note, some of your Pokemon are nicknamed the names of their pre-evolved forms, if that's intentional then fair enough. Just remember anything Poketransferred from Gen IV will need the nickname box ticked if it's got a nickname or a regular name that isn't in all caps. Gen V Pokemon don't need a nickname flag if you just want the regular name (unless you want all caps).

Now, as for PID I haven't checked them. For anything caught in Black/White leave it blank and save and PokeGen will create you a valid one and if the Pokemon was meant to be Poketransferred then you can use the generator.

Hope that helps somewhat :P

Can someone tell me why these 3 pokemon arn't legal?

and could make them legal? and possibly make leafeon male haha

Hydreigon just needs its encounter in the "met" tab changed to Egg/Pal Park/Event/Honey Tree/Shaymin. That's the standard setting for all Gen V Pokemon.

Leafeon needs its location set to (Poketransfer), ball and level shouldn't matter, uncheck the "as egg" bit and ignore it.

Ninetales has Drought which is an unreleased Dream World ability and therefore will not be legal unless you change that, it also has the same problems in the "met" tab as Leafeon.

I've tried to fix Leafeon and attached it so let me know if it works. It may need to be given a Gen IV PID if it's coming from a Gen IV game though, in that case it might need some of the IVs dropping to make it legal.

I'm assuming you checked the movesets out and they're all legal :P

The movesets are legal, I made the Leafeon and Ninetales for him. The thing I don't get is how to make it look like they hatched in a 4th gen game (Diamond) and were "transfered" to 5th gen. I made them in Pokesav and used the Poke Transfer program to create the new pkm but the date hatched bit and origin game got messed up. Could you tell me what I did wrong? :)

EDIT: also, he requested the Ninetales with Drought.

Drought should be legal since it was released in japan as a female therefore breedable.
