Switch Events Contribution Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm theSLAYER, your events moderator and forum manager here!

As a new line of games on a new console is coming up, changes are required for new contributions!

Please submit ALL from below:

  1. If possible, submit a RAM DUMP obtained during the redemption process.
    It likely contains a wnxfull (name pending to change), which is a full card.
    [I'm not sure if Switch supports RAM DUMPING yet, but it'll likely come at some point]
    OR
    If unable to, use PKHeX to the PB7 file.
    [You need to use homebrew or CFW to extract a save from your Switch]
     
  2. Submit a photograph or in-game screenshot of receiving the gift.
     
  3. Submit photographs relating to the event (a code card, a receipt with the serial code, brochures or pamphlets, people at the event etc)
     
  4. Context to the event (ie. Self obtained? Location? Was it crowded? Collection Process etc.)

 

As your saves are located on the Switch console itself (not your cartridge), you'll definitely need Homebrew or CFW on your Switch in order to extract your save.

From now till the release of the games, if you need to install whatever, please do so if you intend to contribute :)
(and of course, we're not responsible to anything that happens to your Switch)

Updated requirements; as wonder cards are not stored on save, users can contribution P7 (the Pokemon file),
Provided they show relevent proof and documentation.

edit: If possible, PM me the save that received the wonder card.

i'm confused about a few things :

1 . To redeem most ( if not all )  of these events , you need to have a stable internet connection in other words you have to go online

2. We need a hacked  switch with Custom Firmware in order to extract the saves/PB7 

3. Going online with a hacked switch will get you instantly banned .

So how is it possible to extract saves without getting banned ? ( unless i'm missing something obvious )

The way i see it is that , you need to have a non hacked switch to redeem the event , trade it to a modded switch and then you can safely extract the PB7 file 🙄

Hey @Hello, it's me!

I wanted to answer you point by point, by it looks like this is the main focus:

I'm not telling other people to risk it, but I went online (once) to obtain Mew, and my switch isn't banned (yet).
Potentially, it could be because I don't pirate games, and didn't do any insane modifications to it.
(all I really do is dump and restore saves via checkpoint.)

There are probably other folks that risk it as well. I'm calling out to them too.

Yes, that is one way to do it, and we'll greatly appreciate having the pb7.
Additionally, as said in the previous point, there are likely some users that risk it.

While the save doesn't hold the wonder card, it does hold some details (leftover wonder card text) used for album/display purposes.
I'm currently researching that, but having only one Mew card to go by isn't enough; I need different kind of cards.
(some examples are this and this tweet)


In any case, if and when CFWs do get RAM dumps, that will be one way to definitely get wonder cards,
if anyone is willing to commit to it.

edit: Also, this is a contribution thread.
If you wanna ask any more questions, go to our FAQ thread. :)
