  1. This mod patches a lot of things to bring the best possible playing experience. Here's what it will patch for you: Starter editing - Makes playing as other Pokémon possible High-Res model patching - Prevents your model from disappearing during certain closeups Portrait patching - Shows the default portrait in the absence of a more specific emotion portrait Animation patching - Substitute missing story animations with dungeon ones to avoid the attack animation being used for everything And something else in the scripts specific to Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon that can't be mentioned without revealing spoilers. It is the last item in a similar list in this video if you're fine with being spoiled, or if you've seen it before. You must have Java on your computer to use this. This has been tested on the North American and European versions of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, and the North American version of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. I don't know if will work on the Japanese version of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, but it will not work on any other version of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Instructions On the New Project window, choose "Starter Mod" in the drop-down, and fill in the name with something that makes sense. Then click OK. Wait until the loading is complete. This is one of the heavier mods, and may take some time even on beefier computers. Save the solution, to avoid having to repeat step 2 if something goes wrong. Expand the project you just created and open "fixed_pokemon.bin". You can do this either by double-clicking or by right-clicking and clicking Open. Edit things to your liking. You should see this when editing Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Gates to Infinity has a much simpler interface): For the purpose of this guide, I'll do this: Things to consider: Each Pokémon must have 4 moves. It's been a while since I tried having less, but I remember things not working with fewer than 4 moves. In my example, I got the first three moves from the level up, and the fourth from Zorua's set of egg moves, although you are not required to stick to these; you can pick anything you want. (PSMD only) The evolution must be the final evolution in the line. If you pick a Pokémon with multiple evolutions, the first on will be used. Refer to the PSMD Pokédex index to find which evolution comes first (for example, if the starter is Eevee, the first evolution is Vaporeon). Click File -> Save -> Save File. You can now rebuild the mod-pack. Note that this may take a while.

  2. In this guide I'll be going over the (very) simple process of dumping your Nintendo Switch Pokémon titles for use with pkNX. This will work with the following games: • Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! / Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! • Pokémon Sword / Pokémon Shield* * For Sword and Shield, pkNX operates under the assumption that your dumped ROM includes the Ver. 1.3.0 patch. What you'll need: • A Nintendo Switch running Custom Firmware (preferably Atmosphère) • The latest release of NXDumpTool • The latest build of pkNX (steps on how to get the latest build can be found on its forum post) • Your console keys/title keys (you can obtain these files using Lockpick_RCM; send the RCM payload to your console, dump keys from your specified NAND, and boot into CFW) • A microSD Card with enough free space to dump your game (~5GB for LGPE, ~13GB for SWSH) • Means of transferring files between your microSD Card and computer • A computer running any recent Windows OS (x64) in order to run pkNX Steps: 1. Get into The Homebrew Menu as per your Custom Firmware 2. Run NXDumpTool 3. Select Dump gamecard content if you have a physical copy of the game, and make sure your Game Card is inserted 4. Select Dump installed SD card / eMMC content if you have a digital copy of the game, and navigate to your game of choice 5. Select RomFS options 6. Navigate to Use update/DLC and press Right on your D-Pad to change it from No to the latest patch The latest patch will read as follows, depending on your game: (Ver. 1.0.2) Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! - 010003F003A34000 v131072 (0.0.2.0) (UPD) (Ver. 1.0.2) Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! - 0100187003A36000 v131072 (0.0.2.0) (UPD) (Ver. 1.3.0) Pokémon Sword - 0100ABF008968000 v327680 (0.0.5.0) (UPD) (Ver. 1.3.0) Pokémon Shield - 01008DB008C2C000 v327680 (0.0.5.0) (UPD) (Ver. 1.3.1) Pokémon Sword - 0100ABF008968000 v393216 (0.0.6.0) (UPD) (Ver. 1.3.1) Pokémon Shield - 01008DB008C2C000 v393216 (0.0.6.0) (UPD) 7. Navigate back to the top of the list and select RomFS section data dump This process will take some time; be patient, let it properly dump all of the contents and don't power off your console! 8. Once the dumping process has completed, exit out of NXDumpTool and access your SD Card (either via ftpd, nxmtp, or by ejecting the SD Card from your console and putting it in your computer) 9. Your dumps will be located in the following path on your SD Card: sd:/switch/nxdumptool/ 10. Inside the RomFS folder, you should be greeted to your ROM dump 11. The folder inside RomFS will be named after your ROM dump (e.g. Pok__mon Sword v393216 (0100ABF008968000) (UPD)); move this folder to your computer 12. Run pkNX and load the folder you just moved to your computer 13. Edit/randomize away! Once your changes have been made, a patch folder for use with LayeredFS will be generated in your ROM dump folder. Move this folder to sd:/atmosphere/contents/ (or whichever other location if you choose to not use Atmosphère) in order for your changes to be reflected in-game.

  3. The exact usage for PKHeX may vary slightly depending on which game you're editing, but much of the UI is the same across games. Loading Pokémon Data To edit Pokémon data in a save file, follow these steps. Use File -> Open Browse to the save you want to edit. You can either choose a save file or a Pokémon file. If you open a Pokémon file (*.pkm, *.pk7, *.pk6, etc.), the tabs on the right will immediately show the Pokémon data, and you can proceed to the next section after optionally making changes. If you chose to open a save file, you should now see your PC box to the right. You can use the drop-down or the ">>" or "<<" buttons to change boxes, or click the "Party-Battle Box" tab to see your party. Choose the Pokémon you want to edit, right-click it, and click "View". The tabs on the left should now show the Pokémon you chose. Saving your changes When you've finished editing your Pokémon to your liking, it's time to save those changes. You can do this either by saving the data to your save file, or by saving them to a Pokémon file. If you loaded a Pokémon file in the first section, "Loading Pokémon Data", saving a Pokémon file is your only option. To save your changes to the save file: Right-Click a slot on the right and click "Set". You do not have to choose the same slot you loaded from if you don't want to. This is actually a way to clone Pokémon if you so desire. When you're finished editing your save data, export the save file by using File -> Export SAV... -> Export main If you want to save just the Pokémon in the tabs on the left, click File -> Save PKM...

  4. This guide to resolve any issues users get when they try to change nature or PID of a Pokémon from Gen 3 or Gen 4. DO NOT USE ANY POKéMON WITH MODIFIED PID ONLINE! Foreword The reason why people get various PID-Mismatch or Invalid Encounter type of messages, is because they did not modify the Pokémon correctly. In Generations 3 and 4, due to an in-depth understanding of how the Pseudo-Random Number Generator works (as well as game mechanics), the Personality Value (PID) is tied to various other values related to the Pokémon generation procedure in-game, such as Individual Values (IVs), Gender, Ability slot, Nature, and Encounter Slot. (Encounter slot refers to the programmed data in a table, that hosts a list of level and species that can be encountered in a map) TL;DR: Due to how RNG is called, PID, IVs, Nature, Gender, Ability, Encounter slot are related and can be derived. Basic Preparation 1. Pokefinder will be the tool we use to find correct information (PID/IVs etc) 2. Time and patience. I cannot stress this enough. 3. Know whether the specific Pokémon is Stationary/Gift or Grass/Cave/Surfing/Fishing/Rock Smash wild encounters. 4. Begin with 'priority of information' in mind. Which is more important: PID or IVs? That will be your starting point. This will be basis for choosing Search via PID or Search via IVs below. Note: Do know that there are scenarios where the PID or IVs you want would be impossible. Learn to adapt to such scenarios. 5. If you're trying to make a shiny, and TID/SID isn't all that important to you, ignore shininess for now. (There's a Shinification portion further down. Run through the regular steps first) Search via PID - Stationary/Gift Search via PID - Wild Search via IVs - Stationary/Gift Search via IVs - Wild Shinification

  5. Images above are from XY, ORAS, SM and USUM, respectively. Disclaimer This guide requires a hacked 3DS, and will use Luma3DS LayeredFS to achieve the desired result. For non-shiny locked entries, this shiny patch will shinify wild encounters, static encounters, gifts, fishing, eggs when received from breeder, and wonder card redemptions. Note: this ROM patch may affect some event redemptions that were not meant to be shiny. Wonder cards that have preset/fixed PID may get their PID overwritten and end up being shiny. Those specific cases will be illegal. (I experienced this with Ash-Greninja) Unlike shiny patches of previous generation games, these Pokémon retain their shininess even when transferred to games that do not have the shiny patch. While PK3DS does have a shiny rate editor, this guide is for people who somehow can't get it to work (maybe computer compatibility issues, unable to extract all the necessary files from the games, etc), or simply doesn't like to use it. We will not be providing any exefs.bin or code.bin, as linking to or providing data files extracted from ROMs are against our forum's rules. However do not fear, as the steps regarding how to extract them from your own purchases, are included in this guide. Additional Misc. Info While it is possible to compile the edited code.bin into a .3DS/.cia, that is not the focus of this tutorial. Do note that if you're running a version of the game that is updated (i.e you have the update patch installed), you'll have to dump the exefs.bin of the update patch instead. Instructions for this step is included below as well. If you have the update patch installed, and you use the exefs.bin/code.bin from the main game (instead of the one in the update patch), it will definitely result in a crash when the game is being loaded. Additionally, this patch will not work on any entries that's shiny locked, and it also won't work on entries that use a different method of generating their PIDs, such as non-legends/non-UB wild Wormhole encounters, Partner Cap Pikachu, Poké Pelago etc. The 4 easy steps: 1. Extracting the exefs.bin 2. Decompressing exefs.bin to obtain the decompressed code.bin 3. Performing the edit 4. Pasting the code.bin into Luma Extracting the exefs.bin Decompressing exefs.bin to obtain the decompressed code.bin Performing the edit Pasting the code.bin into Luma Congratulations, shinies await you! Original source of this method is from our one and only, @SciresM. This method was adopted from his tweet back during Pokémon Sun & Moon's release. It took me a while, but I've come to realize the leading bytes were exactly the same across the 3DS Pokémon games, making this method work for Gen 6 and 7 3DS games.

  6. PKHeX is now able to edit parts of the save, known as save blocks. It allows users to export and import various save blocks. Here's a tutorial on how to get it done. Steps 0. Keep a safe backup of your unedited save, somewhere on your computer. We're not liable if this results in a corrupted save. 1. Make sure you redownloaded and use the latest PKHeX. (Initial version with this feature caused corruption. Additionally, older copies do not have the feature) 2. Load the target save in PKHeX. 3. Now, click on SAV on the tabs. 4. Now, click on the button Block Data 5. Another window should open up. 6. Scroll through the dropdown list at Block Key:. For this example, I'll be importing the file normal_encount into *Object KNormalEncount (Original quote below, can be found here) Since I'm importing into *Object KNormalEncount, that is what my screenshot shows. 7. Now that Block Key: is showing the correct value, select Import Current Block. 8. A window should pop-up. Select the correct file to import, then select Open. In my case, I'm importing the file normal_encount. 9. Now that the file has been imported, close only the first window 10. Then, proceed to File > Export SAV... > Export main 11. Now close PKHeX. If you want to make sure the new save file is not corrupted, reopen PKHeX and try to load the save. 12. You're done. Now reimport the save into your Switch to observe the effects. Note: As of v.1.2.0 of the game, they added a new file called normal_encount_rigel1, which I've been told is required for wild area events to work. For wild area events Index 24 and lesser, simply also import normal_encount into knormalencountrigel1. This means normal_encount is imported into two block IDs, being knormalencount and knormalencountrigel1.

  7. Disclaimer Users normally have issues with PK3DS, likely because they had a bad ROM dump, and the files extracted from it causes issues. This guide will teach users how to extract good files using GodMode9. This would require a hacked 3DS to achieve the desired result. For illustrative purposes, the screenshots featured will use Moon. However, do understand that the methodology works for other mainline Pokémon games on the 3DS (ignoring Virtual Console games). This tutorial is not about how to randomize your games. This tutorial is about how to get the requisite files to be used by PK3DS. I will not entertain any questions on how to randomize your game, you have been warned. We will not be providing any ROMs nor the files from within ROMs, as linking to or providing data files extracted from ROMs are against our forum's rules. The steps 1. Have GodMode9 on your SD card. (gm9 folder on SD root, GodMode9.firm in luma/payloads) [Note: Emunand isn't one of my options, as I don't have an Emunand] 2. Hold down the START button while booting 3DS, and launch into GodMode9 Chainloader screen for Luma3DS 3. Mount the game's image to drive (look in the spoilers below, to see the steps) If Physical Cartridge -> GAMECART If Digital Copy on Sysnand -> SYSNAND SD If Digital Copy on Emunand -> EMUNAND SD You only need to go into either spoiler under 3.1 or 3.2, depending on whether your game is physical or digital. No need to do both. 3.1 GAMECART 3.2 SYSNAND SD or EMUNAND SD 4. On top screen, navigate down to exefs (not exefs.bin), and press the Y button once. (This copies the exefs folder) Hovering over exefs on top screen, and button options on bottom screen 5. Press the B button a few times to back all the way to the root screen. 6. Now go into SDCARD This screen shows the SD card. Yours probably won't look like mine. In any case, press the Y button while hovering over the two dots (. .) to paste the exefs into the root of the SD card. 7. Now paste it here. 8. Once exefs pasted, repeat from step 4 to step 7, but instead of exefs, copy romfs folder. The romfs copying and pasting will probably take awhile. Sit patiently. Keep your 3DS charged. 9. Congratulations, you now have working files for PK3DS. Shift them into whatever folder on your computer that PK3DS reads from. Note: If you want to include files from a game update: a. Paste the base game folders, as listed above b. Then paste the files from the game update into the folders as obtained in part a. b1. to extract the update files, go into your SYSNAND SD/EMUNAND SD in step 3 b2. For step 3.2.3 navigate to 0004000e instead. c. The rest of the steps would be similar to what I mentioned above. If you're confused, at least try to get the base game to work first.
