Is there much difference between Save Gift and Save PKM?

In the PKHexmystery gift database, you can either get the wonder card to inject into a save file, and then you'll be given the gift pokemon in-game; same as if you attended an official event when it was offered.


The other option is that you can use the mystery gift database to insert the gift pokemon directy into a box on the save file.

Is there any advantage to doing one way over the other? (Inserting the pokemon directly is likely faster, but anything other that.)

Depends on what you want.

If you wanna go in-game redemption every time, then the advantage is injecting the wonder card into Mystery Gifts.

If you want it to go faster every time, then injecting the gift directly into your PC or Party is faster.

This is kinda out there, but if you want to swap your team halfway in the E4 with gifts, injecting straight into the PC/Party is faster (and it's not like you can access the delivery person in E4 anyway).

So whether something is an advantage, kinda depends on what you want..

Thanks. What I want is to obtain the event pokemon to transfer them to bank, and then to home. It sounds like the end result is exactly the same for whichever way I do it.

Then you should go the gift route. Individual .pkm files are the same every time, while an in-game gift is generated when you redeem it, and is, as such, 100% the same as a legitimate Pokémon, provided you had received the Wonder Card back then and forgotten about it for years.

Got it! Thank you.
