PKHeX new update legality errors (contribution page)


Recommended Posts

NOT FOR USER MISTAKES OR TROUBLESHOOTING HELP.

Please share:
1. How you caught the mon:
Location: Is it event/wild area event/wandering/in grass/den etc
Level: Level it was met at, and perhaps how many badges you had then etc.
Changes: Have you changed the moves, have you since evolved it, has been been trained etc.

2. Upload actual file PK to your post (our forums support direct uploading).

3. Version of PKHeX you're using.

All 3 needed. They're a must!
Thanks.

Read the previous posts in the thread. You aren't special; you don't deserve individualized help for repeat questions.

When you hack on TR moves without setting the TR flag, then yes, that's illegal.

PKHeX needs to be updated for GMax Melmetal to be flagged legal. Also, it can't be traded online as it's a new event. Give it some time and it should be tradeable soon. It happens every time a new eve

1. The Magby and Elekid were bred from a Magmar/Electabuzz + Machamp w/ Cross Chop. They were both hatched from an egg in-game around Goldenrod City. I have not changed any of the moves since evolving them. The Magmar and Electabuzz attached are carbon copies but leveled up with Rare Candies, and nothing more. According to the new PKHeX, the Magmar and Electabuzz are flagged as illegal, even though they should not be since the Magby and Elekid are legal.

2. The actual PK2 files are attached. Obviously this is from a Crystal game (Gen 2), and I know that everyone will probably be uploading pk8 files, but I just wanted to bring up the fact that I did not have this issue with previous PKHeX versions, as it seems the legality of moves were only recorded for Magby and Elekid but not for their evolutions. I'd also like to point out the possibility that this may extend to older generations such as Gen 3 (I have reason to suspect other pokemon in my other versions have faced a similar legality error).

3. I am using the latest PKHeX (20200622) downloaded from this website under the download section.

 

**EDIT 10:19 PM**: Just wanted to update and say that even ODD egg moves on a lot of the pokemon in Gen 2 appear to flag the baby pokemon as illegal as soon as they evolve into their main character (ex. Magby with Dizzy Punch will be illegal when evolved into Magmar). This might be the case in other generations as well but I have yet to thoroughly test them.

Gen II Pokemon transferred to Gen VII with Egg moves(such as Pin Missile Forretress, Double-Edge Furret, Flame Wheel Raticate, and Leech Life Victreebel) flag the egg move as illegal.

Additionally any Mismagius and Honchkrow that evolved from Gen II Misdreavus and Murkrow are flagged with the error "Analysis not available for this Pokemon". All other Cross-gen evolutions from Gen I-II games are treated normally.

020 - Raticate - FA83B06D019F.pk7071 - Victreebel - D9948C37CD84.pk7162 - Furret - 50ECCDE1972F.pk7205 - Forretress - 1115ABF05D8B.pk7429 - Mismagius - FD1DFAF115F5.pk7430 - Honchkrow - F5DABF0D675E.pk7

 

EDIT: These pokemon were bred in Gen II and transferred to Bank and later put into Ultra Moon. PKHex versions is 20200622

Bred? possible.
The event one modified with different balls: impossible.

Really? because I bred a shiny one but it doesn't allow any other ball different than the poke ball.

this isn't a legality FAQ thread. sounds like a legality issue, just contribute it then the devs will presumably fix it at a later date.

Your statement is not accurate.
The one I just caught has met level non-0

I guess I wasn't being clear. Pkhex says mine shoud be met at 0 )not sure why). that's why I put the quotes.

I'm confused, cause it doesn't show 0 for me. (your file)

Does it still show you 0 if you reimport the PK3?
I'm curious if it's simply the recognition in save is mucking up or something else.

I meant the legality checker says it should be met at zero. Once again sorry for not being clear.

Hi.

When I use Batch Editor to change pokemon ability, this error shows up when I check legality "Invalid: Ability does not match ability number" and when I choose the ability manually it become legal. how can I fix this using Batch Editor for many pokemon.

Just an update: So far none of the HOME gifts have any Weight or Height.

The original forme Magearna, the one from Mystery Gift, is marked as hacked, suggesting the Mystery Gift data hasn't been added to the database. This is the same Magearna from the event that HAS been added.

The bug with PKHeX and HOME gifts that were previously legal are known, thanks.
