Help! New to Pokemon games


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to Pokémon games and just bought Pokémon Sword for my Switch. I have tools available and i need some help/clarification on something.

Tools:

Switch on CFW, JKSV

Switch lite OFW with Nintendo Online subscription

PKHEX

Save files - Gen 1 to 8 from Project Pokémon 

Planning to get - Pokémon Home premium subscription

i can load saves to my CFW via JKSV & PKHEX 

I can trade individual Pokémon from CFW to OFW 

Questions:

How can I load all gen 1 to 8 to my CFW? I am seeing gen 1, 2 as old Pokémon data from previous games. can I merge all save files of Gen 1 -8 and load it in CFW? 

Granting I have bulk Pokémon in my CFW Pokedex, can I transfer builk Pokémons to my OFW Poekdex instead of trading them individually?

If I have Pokémon Home premium subscription, would it be possible to load PKHEX data to Pokémon Home?

Hoping someone can help me. Thanks!

You can inject pk1 to pk7 files into a gen 8 save using pkhex, there is a projectpokemon 802 pokemon collection on the forum looks for that, as for gen 8 trading from CFW to Non CFW unit you can only do one by one, If you want to mass transfer from older gen like gen 6 and 7 games you can transfer them from a 3DS pokemon games into bank to transfer to home, requires a subscription. 

Keep in mind if you inject older gen pk1- pk7 files directly into sword and shield , don't deposit them into home, as they have no home ID, not exactly sure what is the punishment for depositing pk1 to pk7 files pokemon into home from the switch end.

Thank you for the response. It is very helpful. 

How about this scenario: gen 8 to be injected to my CFW and these will be traded individually to my Non-CFW. In PKHEX, can I bulk rename the OT of all Gen 8 so it will be "legally" owned by my Non-CFW once they are traded?

You can batch edit within pkhex to allow you to change the OT to your name.

Hello, it's me again :)

So, i have a home subscription. Do i have to pay another subscription for Bank in order for me to transfer all Gen1-7 from my 3DS? Goal is to have 1-7 loaded to Home. I know there was a free month with Bank on February/March but i totally missed it.  Any other way I could do that today?

Yes. HOME subscription and Bank subscriptions are separate things.

That means having HOME subscription would presently not give you a free Bank subscription.
Gonna need to apply for both if you want both.

Some options:

  1. Pay for Bank subscription
  2. Use PKHeX to load the mons into a gen 8 format, then have a sysbot trade it to you (this assumes you don't have a CFW Switch, and that your OFW Switch has NSO) [if species exist in SWSH]
  3. Wait for Bank subscription to be free again. Maybe during HOME anniversary. Or maybe they'll never do it again. Who knows really.

cool! thanks for the very detailed explanation. I got the Bank subscription. Is it possible to pkhex a number of pk8s to my 3ds then transfer to bank then to home then to my OFW switch?

Bank and HOME does not preserve items. You have to injekt them directly into your SwSh save (only if you play in the hacked switch).

got it. Then hacked switch to trade mons with items to OFW one by one. it's a pain but better to have something than nothing :) 

Thanks for the tip!

Or... you can simply play (also online) in your hacked switch ONLY IF you have a clean sysnand without any pirated stuff or fake nsp installed. As of now, no one has never been banned for using save managers (backup and restore) homebrews. Just be careful to not restore saves with illegal stuff, or with the sync id from another user.
