the pcdata? upload it. Also was it created for SWSH?

So, I downloaded what I’m pretty sure is the latest version of pkhex (clicked download on the home page). I may have to post an actual video of what it’s doing to best explain. But basically, I can open pkhex just fine, I can save and open and individual Pokémon just fine... I just can’t open a saved box and I don’t have the option to export.

As far as I can tell, the pcdata file is blank?
I loaded it onto my SWSH save file, and it wiped out the pc.

(also, your video shows nothing to me. edit: downloaded, and opened it in VLC, and there's finally an image.)


1. Extract PKHeX from the zip.
2. Drag and Drop the pcdata onto PKHeX. As in use the mouse to drop the file ONTO PKHeX. Requires you to extract to do so. (hence the first step)
3. Do not "double-click" the PCdata to try to access the data. You need to drag and drop it on PKHeX.

Anyhow, the pcdata is empty. No idea why you're trying to import an empty file.

I’m not trying to import anything. I’m trying to make sure I can save a box of mons to eventually import onto a hacked switch. I extracted the zip file, dragged and dropped the file into pkhex and still keep getting the same error message. I’m also wondering why I don’t even have an export option in pkhex itself (it’s grayed out). But anyway, I appreciate you guys trying to help. Hopefully I’ll figure it out eventually! 😁

Look, I tried to import the exact save box data as you, and it loaded fine.
Clearly you are doing something wrong.

Next, the "export" button is grayed out as you did not load a save file.
Load a switch file, have all the mons there.
Alternatively, use PKHeX's Tools > Data > Dump Boxes, to dump all the PK8 files into a folder.

Yea, I know I’m doing something wrong... I just don’t know what? I load pkhex, it loads just fine. I work on a single Pokémon. I save it, and drag it into the app and it loads just fine. I load a few mons into a box, go over to SAV click save box data++ click no to export box one. Save to the bak folder, drag and drop to the pkhex app... click “run”... and then that’s when I get that error message. 😣

@kaytee Okay, how bout don't do ANY of those things.

First, load up a save file in PKHeX.
Then, create as many mons as you like.
Then, Tools > Data > Dump Boxes. Choose a folder to dump to.
(alternatively, File > Export SAV..)

If you go by the Dump Boxes route, the folder will have lots of PK8.
To import them into another save: Tools > Data > Load Boxes

Okay, both of your suggestions actually worked. I can now load a whole box of saved mons. However, it’s still showing “blank save file” at the top and I’m still not able to export 🤦‍♀️

Boot up PKHeX, then drag a SWSH into the PKHeX window. We got many saves submitted to our forums, use one if you don't have one.
