Legit caught 'mon suddenly flagged as illegal?


Recommended Posts

I opened my save in Pokehex; as I've done numerous times, and suddenly it's flagging my Pikachu as illegal. It says invalid: Unable to match encounter from origin game. This particular mon was caught in this save legit, and hasn't been touched in anyway. Why would that particular one be illegal?

Here you go. Like I said, I haven't touched this one, so I can't imagine why it'd suddenly be flagged...

There's something funky going on with Pikachu in Gen 1. I think PKHeX is partially confusing it for Yellow's starter Pikachu. My Lv 3 Pikachu is legal (caught in RB), but at LV 5 it becomes recognized as Yellow starter, even though the catch rate is wrong, and is flagged illegal.

Clearing catch rate shows legal. So you could just leave it, it'll probably get fixed.

Ahhh. Makes sense. I guess it's not that big a deal. I'm playing through the games in order, so I'm a long way away from having to worry about uploading it to the bank; and even then I'll probably just leave this one and bring forward the Pikachu from Yellow. Haven't completely figured out what I'm going to do as far as my livingdex yet. Hopefully it will get fixed in a future update. I've got plenty of time. Thanks!
