Gen 8 Specific Edits: Encounter wanted Max Raid Pokémon


Recommended Posts

This tutorial is made with the presumption that you are capable of understanding and following simple steps.
While you may ask questions on details regarding the subject, you CANNOT ask on the how to inject/extract save file, how to install CFW etc.
There are other tutorials for that (and this tutorial presumes you already know those things)

Required items
1. PKHeX
2. able to extract and inject a modified SWSH save
3. A working internet browser (in case you wanna check what den has what mons, etc)
4. Latest version of Leanny's plugin

 

Steps
1. Load your game on your Switch, save in-game, then export the save with your favorite save manager.
2. Figure out what mon resides at (a) what physical den, and (b) what pool does it reside in. (Our page sorts them out by the physical dens, as listed in Leanny's plugin as well as PKHeX’s raid parameters. Also, you can fight Dens via here.)

In this case, I'll go for G-Butterfree. For (b), it can be found in the Rare Den.

Open the page where it can be found, and take note of the (c) stars and percentage chance.

3. Load the save into PKHeX

4. Open Leanny's Plugin (Tools>Display Raids), scroll to den found previously (a), then open Raid Calculator.
In my case, it's Rolling Fields 3.

You should see the seed in Den Search being the same seed as the one displayed on your Raid List.
If it is not the same seed, type in the seed value into Den Search.

 

5. Now, change the species, IVs and other stats as you deem fit. Once done, hit Search.
Once found, copy the Seed displayed.

In my case, I want Square Shiny Male G-Butterfree.
(Note: may take awhile to find the entry)

6. Exit Leanny's Plugin, with the same PKHeX window,  go to SAV > Raids.
Go to the (a), and paste the seed, as well as set the Dentype and flag (parameters based on this page)

For my case, it will be G-Butterfree.
So I scroll to Den 003, as found in (a).
I set Den Type to Rare, as it is a rare den
As per (c) I intend to fight it at 1 star, and it's noted to be 10% chance, and based on the page, it's the last 10% of 1 star on the page.
As such, randroll is 91 - 100 (last ten entries to 100), and star is 0 (for stars, it starts with 0th index, so it's intended -1)

I've drawn arrows at the values that needs to be changed.

Example on how randroll correlates to the percentages on serebii

Spoiler

As per the 1star example above:image.png

So basically:
1. total up all the percentages for that amount of stars
2. Draw a table
3. Arrange the species as per listed on the webpage
4. Write down the randroll as per what you listed.


6. Save the save in PKHeX, import it into your game.

7. Now find the den in your game. If you're lost, Leanny's plugin has a mini-map that can show where the den is.

8. Alas, at the physical den, is your encounter!
For my case, my 1 star square shiny male Butterfree is achieved!

Hi i have a question i tried to do an octillery den but after all i did that the pokemon who appeared was wishiwashi is there a way to reroll this shiny den into an octillery?

 

 

does this work only for specific pokemon or can you roll any other pokemon once you have a shiny den?

In order to roll species, you gotta be at least 3 frames before the shiny frame.

While the way the frame ascends is static, the species aren't static for frames > 3.

Is you saved on your shiny frame itself, you can't roll for the species.
It's the reason why I save 3 frames before my shiny frame. This way, I have a guaranteed shiny frame (in 3) and able to roll for species.

I mentioned it here: https://projectpokemon.org/tutorials/gameplay_150/max-raid-rng-manip/advancing-your-frames-r101/
(for purposes of advancing 3 days, I use the Invite Method)

if i used the raid calculator on pkhex it only shows that specific pokemon if i roll how many times i repeat it. how do i make it advance my shiny frame using pkhex so i can roll different pokemon? because with the seed in the raid calculator it only shows the specific pokemon right? or do i have to go through the skipping frames manually ?

Calculate a new seed. Then change the seed. Then save the progress in PKHeX. Then restore the save into your game.

I'm attempting to start to use this plugin, but I cannot figure out how to get PKHeX to load the plugin without crashing. Not sure if the latest PKHeX update and the latest Leanny's plugin are incompatible, or if I'm putting the plugin in the wrong place/directory
