[feature request] Pokemon Home Boxes


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'd like to request an Options < Settings < Blank Save Version < Home.

This would be simulating how Home on mobile views Pokemon, not how Home on the Switch views through the eyes of SWSH.  Of course, having nothing to do with interacting with the real Pokemon Home, just simulating the functions without the data getting changed around.

I realize there is Tools < Data < PKM Database, and while it has speed, it doesn't provide the structure or organization that the rest of the app has.  Home does have the option for a similar structure to PKM Database, though Home also includes Labels to filter boxes of Pokemon (Label ex. Box 56 and <insert custom box name>) and to order all Pokemon by their placement in boxes and the order of the boxes (exactly as the user organized them).

It'd extremely useful to have sets of Home "saves" for different categories, with as many boxes as Home has or at least as many as Bank.  Being able to have different sets of Pokemon (unchanged and unrestricted by game) and being able to name boxes.  I figure the Home "save" will be an organized collection of Pokemon files accessible to PKHex.

A loss of speed is welcome for the value of having that function!

Thanks for everything!


Here are some images of what I was talking about:

Formatted like PKM Database, but in Box Order:

PKHeX is a save file editor; HOME stores its data server side. I'm not going to implement customizable save data formats to fake an experience, as everyone would have preferences (longer box names, more slots per box, moving groups of boxes, viewing in original format, storing as multiple formats).

Sure it may seem nice for collections that are not small, but it's not really useful when your collection is large and spanning all games. When you need to grab something, opening up the pkmdb and searching (including the advanced filters) will quickly give you what you need.

PKHeX even reads the backup save file data into the pkmdb, no need to dump files.
