PCNY Gotta Catch Em All Station

I explored the sevafiles provided in PkHeX, some are still flagged as illegal, PkHeX database might have to be updated or these Pokemon might not be completely reconstructed to their fullest original state. Someone with more experience may want to look into that as I dont know how the flagging system works.

Nobody has collated a complete list of event properties to compare against for Gens 1-3; PKHeX only compares against what it knows about (in-game data only).

Oh, so PkHeX only knows how to flag correctly events from gen 4 onwards because we dont know how prior events were stuctured and what were its properties to their full extent?

Gen1-3 events were created by an external process (event machine/device) then injected to the recipient's savegame. Gen4 events onwards send the game the template, which whe game uses to generate the gift when redeemed in-game.

PKHeX compares the pkm against the event templates. No templates for gen1-3? Can't compare against what is not available!

Tony, myself, and Julie (from pokemoncenternewyork.com) did a Q&A last night regarding the history of the PCNY machine & the store itself if anyone is interested/has questions. :)

I'm just tossing this idea out there, maybe get the machine over to Shonumi (reverse engineers unique and obscure GBC and GBA devices and functions, such as the GBC Infrared sensor, GBA MMBN Battle Chip Gate, and the Pokemon Crystal Mobile Adapter GB, among other things, all to add to their emulator, GBE+) or the REON Dev Team (they also work on the Mobile Adapter GB, adding support for the other games it had, trying to recreate the servers, I don't know if they work together) and maybe one of them can emulate the special GBA like hardware to allow the NR disc to actually transmit the event via the Dolphin emulator to GBA emulator connection feature. I think it was stated in the stream that the BIOS was dumped, but it was exactly the same as a standard GBA. So there must be some other hardware in there that has to be analysed and reverse engineered, which would likely take a long time. Obviously it would be up to the owner to contact these people and see if they're trustworthy of the equipment, but if no one else is working on the hardware, maybe let the owner know. Also, I don't know these people, for all I know they might not be interested in this, or not have the time.

The machine was sent back to the owner a few weeks ago. Everything regarding the PCNY machine has been shared/is being worked on by users on ProjectPokemon.

Also off-topic, but I highly recommend anyone to check out Shonumi's blog if you haven't - lots of Game Boy related posts/gems in there. And check out the REON Dev Team Discord if you want to learn more about the Mobile GB Adapter. :)

It was mentioned in the video. IIRC it was so that they reduce the chances of them destroying the machine. The faster it's sent back, the more unlikely they'll have chances for destroying the machine.

It was on loan from the owner for the video...
