    Not to be too nitpicky, but it's "theSLAYER", one word. Probably okay to be shortened if it's a nickname or something, but if you gonna say to full thing, please get it right Next, how am I supposed to give information regarding "when a hypothetical update to PKHeX will drop", when such information does not exist? The "wait patiently" reply I've been giving literally applies to everyone, including me. Now, learn how to have some self-control and wait patiently.

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to share a little gem. It is a perfect Jirachi! For anyone that isn't aware, multiple events in 2003 including World Hobby Fair and Festa 2003 used Gamecube Dev systems with Pokemon Machine v2 attachments and a GBA slot to distribute Jirachi. This was the same machine that was used at PCNY for generation 2 and generation 3. Note: There are actually 6 possible PIDs with perfect IVs. None are Timid sorry RS - ネガイボシ 6IV Jirachi (D694C91C) (JPN).pk3

    So you expect me to read the wall of text, and then comment? Okay -after some time- Lol, the very first mon I loaded up has errors. This is going to be just great. Shiny Bulbasaur that was hatched, yet has Cherish Ball, and has fateful encounter flag. Lol Shiny Original Cap Pikachu caught in HeartGold? lolol Shiny Mew not from Emerald? LOLOLOL Yup, almost everything is illegal. Whoever thought it was a good idea to hack these in: Nope, they're not "secret events". Just plain illegal. Nothing to do with the (falsely) claimed The illegality of these mons are so outrageous that they're practically plain as day to see. There are some real events sprinkled throughout, but all in all, these files are just horrible. Too much illegals. User claiming they're legal. Hiding the post cause user is misrepresenting what they are. (I'll be leaving the quoting of the post intact, but removing the upload) I can't even imagine that I'm going to thank you for this (cause I typically get mentally turned off at wall of texts without line breaks nor proper grammar usage), but thanks @Delta Blast Burn for bringing such an egregious post to my attention. Based on the content of said user, the user is also on my watchlist now. And lastly: You're such a joke. You clearly don't understand the meaning of legal (Or maybe you're a troll, which in that case, well done, now shoo). Why don't you understand what legal means, before you try to create mons, huh? Edit: Clarification for clarification's sake. I don't see the merit in critique with no constructive feedback. Getting horrible hacks to pass through online services is not the definition of legal (appears to be the basis of the misinformed point you were trying to make). Legal typically refers to a mon that is indistinguishable from stuff you can obtain in-game (or via events) without abnormal gameplay. (Stuff like glitches or ACE constitute abnormal gameplay) For example, your Original Cap Pikachu from HeartGold? Totally not legal. Pikachu variant in the form of the Original Cap Pikachu does not exist in HeartGold. And that variant will not exist until distributed in Gen 7. Not to mention, as of writing, all of the cap variants (besides Partner Cap) were distributed as shiny locked. So if we compare your mon to one that was legally available, yours fail the mark miserably. Hence illegal. PKHeX is working as intended. Keep in mind the real definition of legal when you decide to craft mons. Check various databases (online sites like Serebii, Bulbapedia etc) to see if the mon you wanna make ever legally existed to begin with. So that fellow readers have an inkling to what I'm referring to, marvel at this hot piece of garbage:

    But it trades so must be legal. My heartgold shiny original cap pikachus forged from the dust of Arceus. Bless me oh sysbot with this mon for it is indeed legitimate and disregard pkhex since it has garbage integrity

    Dear fellow members, Please know that every game update will cause PKHeX to not work with any saves made in that game update. (PKHeX should continue to work for any other game saves, just not for the one from the recent game update.) As such, there is no need to keep posting threads and asking about it. Everyone knows about it. This kind of thing takes time to document and resolve. Probably nobody besides the PKHeX devs will know when PKHeX will be updated. And they have no obligation to give us an expected release date either. So everyone, let's just wait patiently, and check back regularly, alright Cheers. edit: View full article

    I've been lurking for a while now, but I think I'm finally ready to add what information I know about the distribution ROM. I apologize if I repeat something that was already known, but I checked the last 5 or so pages, and I didn't find the information I have. The actual script data for the Aurora Ticket distribution starts at 0x12728. It is the raw data - unencrypted and uncompressed. Noteworthy is the fact that the checksum and header are not stored here. I edited the script to give me both the Aurora Ticket and Mystic Ticket, and it worked! This means the checksum is calculated dynamically, rather than stored elsewhere on the ROM. The Wonder Card starts at 0x14FB8. At least, that is where the checksum would be. I haven't confirmed if the checksum is calculated dynamically, but I can't find it stored anywhere in the ROM, so I'm assuming it's dynamic. I tried my hand at disassembly. Here's what I've learned: The disassemblers designed for generic ARM7-TDMI code don't like disassembling THUMB code. The disassemblers designed specifically for the GBA (e.g. luvdis) don't like disassembling ARM code. Overall, I'm bad at reading assembly code. Something (maybe) useful: the Wireless Adapter uses the 32-bit "normal" serial communication mode. (It sends data by writing to register 0x04000120.) Not strictly about the distribution ROM, but the "virtual" script functions (opcodes B8 through BF) can access data in the Wonder Card and Wonder News sections. Thus, a properly crafted Wonder Card could add an additional 320 bytes of script data. Finding a way to distribute Wonder News would add another 440 bytes of usable script data. I've been doing some digging into the decompilation projects, and I've found two functions that might be responsible for Emerald rejecting the distribution: "ValidateMEventClientHeader" / "sub_801B6A0" FireRed: https://github.com/pret/pokefirered/blob/2880cf2a51ea36fa36f00d9ecf07177e5955c882/src/mevent.c#L788 Emerald: https://github.com/pret/pokeemerald/blob/4dd3cc7b7691afb8ecd2e8af8b2ebfa717dd2414/src/mevent2.c#L380 "CheckCompatibility" Ruby: https://github.com/pret/pokeruby/blob/f839afb24aa2c7b70e9c28a5c069aacc46993099/src/mystery_event_script.c#L38 FireRed: https://github.com/pret/pokefirered/blob/2880cf2a51ea36fa36f00d9ecf07177e5955c882/src/mystery_event_script.c#L30 Emerald: https://github.com/pret/pokeemerald/blob/4dd3cc7b7691afb8ecd2e8af8b2ebfa717dd2414/src/mystery_event_script.c#L28 Given that "ValidateMEventClientHeader" appears in FRLG and Emerald, but not RS, I suspect it is this function that is used for the Wireless Adapter, while "CheckCompatibility" is used for the eReader. Regardless, as long as it is one of these two functions, the remedy is the same. Replace a 0x1 somewhere with 0x5, and replace a 0xF with 0x20F or 0x38F. Unfortunately, like the checksums, these values do not appear to be stored directly on the ROM. They are likely caused by MOVS or ADDS instructions, instead. I hope this helps, and let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

    I give you my most sincere opinion, I have been playing pokemon since I was 17 years old, I am already 39 on my way to 40, I have seen pokemon grow, by his side many people have grown up who have wanted to safeguard unique things from past generations, for example, Many of us want that pichu ear piku or pokemon that marked our childhoods or better times, to return, but always those of us who have understood microcomputing and programming, have respected the game itself, I use pkhex, but I almost always do it for events that may be forgotten over time, otherwise I do not edit or believe, because I like to breed pokemon, which is the grace of it, but keeping the events that are coming is like the conservation work that is now with the old games from the 80s, good jewelry is lost, because there is no mentality to preserve the good. Being here I have seen people who have kept the most wonderful events that we could not have in Europe or events that many could not have because they did not have those friends that they did, it is missing, but today, there is much interested who uses this tool for their own benefit rather than to preserve wonderful pokemon. Sorry for this long text, but I had to say it or it exploded.

    O0 is Orion 0; aka galar dex R1 is Rigel 1; aka armor dex R2 is Rigel 2; aka crown dex The asterisks are duplicate entries as the galar dex has the same entry. The game uses the first available dex data. So don't edit asterisk entries. Orion is the codename of sword shield used internally by the game; Rigel is the codename for the two DLCs.

    Hi Guys, I was feeling nostalgic last week so I decided to fire up my red and blue games to take a look at them. I also wanted to look at my mews that I got back in 1999 at Toys R Us giveaway during Black Friday. My sister, and brother and I were able to run through the line multiple times until we each got the sticker sheet that had the mew, thankfully the guy handing them out didn’t mind. I let my sister use one of my games to get the mew so I have two, though I’m unsure if my brother still has his. That led me to wonder how rare these are now which led me to here. Here are the two mews I have if you need any of their info or are interested in looking at them!

    Hi everyone. A while back I bought a lot of japanese pokemon carts from japan. I dumped all the saves that were still there and have just had the time to go through them. On a copy of Pokemon blue I found a mew with the trainer: ルイージ and TID: 39156. I believe this may be a Nintendo Space World '97 Mew?

    Latest Version: v1.3.0 (2019-04-16) An enhancement hack of Pokémon Platinum. Summary Pokémon Renegade Platinum is an enhancement hack of Pokémon Platinum Version, similar to my other hacks such as Sacred Gold & Storm Silver and Blaze Black & Volt White. In a nutshell, this hack generally keeps the same story flow as the original Pokémon Platinum but adds in a significant number of gameplay differences, including but not limited to access to all 493 Pokémon in the game, revamped Trainers including tougher boss fights, lots of (optional) changes to weaker Pokémon to make them easier to use, the removal of trade only evolutions and a number of other quality of life changes. The specifics of what parts have been changed are explained in the paragraphs below. Features All 493 Pokémon Available All Pokémon that were originally in Platinum, from Bulbasaur to Arceus, are available to obtain within the game. The wild Pokémon for every single area have been modified extensively, now including species not ordinarily found in the Sinnoh region. It's possible to catch or obtain the majority of Pokémon before facing the Elite Four for the first time, meaning you can construct almost any team you want. In the cases where a Pokémon being in the wild would not be thematically appropriate - for example, starter Pokémon or legendaries - new events have been added to the game to make obtaining these Pokémon feel as unique as they normally would. The details for where to get each Pokémon can be found between the wild Pokémon and special events documents. Additionally, the correct locations for wild Pokémon are also shown in the Pokédex. (Big thanks to Mikelan98 for that feature!) Revamped Trainer Battles The Pokémon rosters of every Trainer in the game has been edited, now including Pokémon from the National Dex. Trainer levels have also been modified to fit the new level curve, which is now higher than before due to bigger Pokémon rosters and greater use of evolved Pokémon awarding larger amounts of EXP. Trainers can now expect their Pokémon to reach the 70s by the Elite Four, instead of the 50s that was the case in the original Platinum. Additionally, all Trainers use the AI that is normally only used by boss Trainers such as the Elite Four. The details for what each Trainer has can be seen in the Trainer Pokemon document. Please note that this feature is purely for the normal Trainer battles in the game; the Battle Frontier has not been changed. Harder Boss Battles Important battles such as the rival, Gym Leaders, Galactic Admins or the Elite Four have had their difficulty increased further than normal Trainers. Gym Leaders and Elite Four members now always use 6 Pokémon instead of the 3-5 from before, and all of these battles have them using high IV Pokémon with custom movesets, held items, and sometimes ideal natures. The first round Elite Four and the Champion also have the unique property of randomly picking from four teams to battle you with, making it impossible to know in advance what their lead Pokémon will be. They shouldn't be literally impossible to beat, but are definitely a much greater challenge than the original version. You can expect some of your Pokémon to faint in battle unless you bring some strategies of your own to the table. However, they do retain their aesthetics from the original, including their type focuses and signature Pokémon. Their signature Pokémon are also now equipped with a Poké Ball seal for some extra flair! The details for all of these battles can be seen in the Trainer Pokémon file in the documentation. Pokémon Modifications The Fairy-type from the Gen 6 games and later has been added in Renegade Platinum, replacing what was previously the ??? type. All Pokémon have had their typing, base stats and wild held items updated to match what they are as of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, meaning you can now use Pokémon such as Clefairy and Ralts with their Fairy-type as in the later games. Pelipper and Torkoal also gain their new Drizzle and Drought abilities from Gen 7, and a lot of Pokémon gain their Hidden Ability from Gen 5 and later as a secondary standard ability in this hack. All Pokémon have also had their level up move sets completely revamped. Pokémon will now learn their normal level up moves but now also learn other moves that enable them to be the best they can be, including TM moves, Egg moves and moves they only have access to in previous or later generations, up to and including Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! Some Pokémon also get the chance to learn entirely new moves that they never could before, such as Megahorn for Pinsir and Earth Power for Typhlosion. The levels at which they learn the moves have been structured so that you can reliably access them just by naturally playing the game (i.e. you won't get moves at extremely high levels). Some Pokémon have also had their TM/HM compatibility modified, in some cases adding in moves that they could ordinarily only learn in later generations (such as Drain Punch for Toxicroak), and other cases granting them access to entirely moves by TM (e.g. Drain Punch for Dusknoir). Additionally, several TMs have been replaced with new moves, including Scald, Wild Charge, Bug Buzz, Hyper Voice, Dazzling Gleam and Hurricane. Pokémon TM compatibility has been adjusted to match their compatibility in later generations, or in the case of the newcomers Bug Buzz and Hurricane, my best generous guess has been made as to what might be able to learn them. There's also been much greater compatibility added for Fly, meaning you don't necessarily almost always need a Flying-type Pokémon to get anywhere conveniently. In addition to this, there are also a number of custom changes to make certain Pokémon unique and/or easier to use. Many Pokémon who are a bit weaker have received buffs to their base stats, meaning previously weak Pokémon like Butterfree and Ledian can now actually put up a fighting chance. Some Pokémon with decent stats in bad areas have had their stats reshuffled, such as Glaceon who is now faster but less defensive. Some Pokémon have also been given new types to play with, such as the now Bug and Dragon-type Flygon, or the Ghost and Fairy-type Mismagius. Some Pokémon also gain new abilities that they can't ordinarily get, such as Weavile gaining the Technician ability. If you don't like the sort of changes that are listed in that last paragraph, there is an additional patch you can use called "ClassicVersion.xdelta" which will erase these changes from the game, leaving them the same as they would be as of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The details for these modifications can be found in the Pokemon Changes and Type Changes files in the documentation. Quality of Life Changes A number of quality of life changes have been made to the game. All Pokémon names are now decapitalised everywhere outside of standard NPC dialogue. This means in battle, the Pokémon status screen etcetera, all names show up as they would in Gen V and later. Pokémon natures are now displayed in the stat screen with their stat boost and reduction shown next to them (as stat highlights were not a thing in Platinum). For example, where it previously said "Brave nature.", you should now see "Brave (+Atk, -Spe)". All Pokémon have their egg cycles reduced to 0, meaning they hatch very quickly. The Poké Radar is now given to you near the beginning of the game. The Bicycle is actually given to you at the start of the game. The Pokétch, still given to you near the start, now includes all 25 Pokétch apps right off the bat. Additionally, the three coupon miniquest has been removed. The Move Relearner and the Move Tutors that previously required Heart Scales and Shards respectively no longer require payment for their services; you can just talk to them and they'll do their job for free. Additionally, all three Move Tutors now sit in the same house on the southern part of Route 212. The Move Deleter is now available as early as Oreburgh City, meaning you no longer need to wait until Canalave City to delete any HMs. When fishing with a rod, an encounter is now guaranteed, as opposed to previously where it was possible to 'not get a bite'. Honey trees have also been given a total overhaul and now give you a Pokémon instantly instead of you having to wait for several hours. The encounters for honey trees are different from before as they are now script driven - you can view what is on each tree in the Wild Pokémon document. TMs are now effectively infinite; picking up or obtaining a TM will reward you with 99 copies of that TM, and these can also be refreshed by talking to a new NPC at the Pokémon League. These TMs cannot be bought at any stores and also cannot be sold. Most TM locations have been reshuffled and can be seen in the Item Locations document. You will only find TMs from either picking them up off the ground or receiving them from NPCs. (It unfortunately proved impossible to make the TMs actually infinite, hence this method instead). The need to use HMs has been removed where possible. Surf, Waterfall and Rock Climb are still necessary, but Cut trees, Strength rocks (with one exception in the Distortion World), Rock Smash rocks and foggy weather have been completely removed from the game, meaning your Pokémon no longer need to learn these moves to progress. Where roadblocks are necessary, NPCs have replaced them and will disappear when necessary. This does mean there are now some cases where you can access areas much earlier than you were previously able to do. Additionally, any darkness on the map has also been removed, meaning Flash is also no longer ever necessary. The Pokémon sprites are those normally used in Heart Gold and Soul Silver, which for the most part look better than the Platinum equivalents. There are a couple exceptions to this where I've left the front sprite as the Platinum one for Pokémon such as Blastoise, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Tyranitar and Togekiss. Additionally, the mini sprites used in the Pokémon menu and the Boxes are now the Gen 6 icons (albeit some with some slightly off colours), with thanks to MeroMero for distributing a premade file containing them. Most of these changes are not documented anywhere, but you may notice them as you play through the game. Increased Shiny Rate By default, Renegade Platinum features a new shiny rate of 1/512, meaning while shiny Pokémon are still reasonably rare, it's significantly more likely that you'll come across one while playing the game. This shiny rate does not affect the Poké Radar's ability to generate shiny patches of grass, but does otherwise affect every other method of Pokémon encounter (eggs, gifts, wild etc). If this feature is undesirable, there are additional patches included in the download that can make the shiny rate 1/4096 (equal to Gen 6 and above) or 1/8192 (equal to Platinum's normal rate) instead. Increased Gameplay Speed The download includes a "SpeedUpPatch" which can be applied to Renegade Platinum which adds a few things to speed up the normally sluggish gameplay in Platinum. It does three things: all text will appear instantly, HP and EXP bars will no longer animate between positions and the 30 FPS cap of the game has been removed, allowing it to run up to a maximum of 60 FPS depending on the hardware capability. These changes together mean battles can go significantly faster. Please note that these speed up features are not included in the base Renegade Platinum and need to be applied via one of the additional patches supplied in the download. New Events and NPCs A number of small events have been added to the game, including an additional event with Team Galactic, small events to obtain starters and legendaries, more in-depth events to get mythical Pokémon such as Mew, Celebi and Arceus and more. Some new events have also been added that change the story flow slightly. For example, upon arriving at Eterna City, you will find that Gardenia isn't present at her gym. The player is instead required to make a short detour to Route 216 - which was previously inaccessible until gaining six badges - giving them the chance to pick up some Ice-type Pokémon much earlier than before. Another example is that the player now visits Pal Park between going to Celestic Town and Canalave City. You also now battle Lucas or Dawn a few times as you go about your adventure! In addition, there are also some battles with each of the stat trainers (Cheryl, Mira etc), related to their individual events. There are lots of small events that allow you to obtain Pokémon. For example, you can get an Eevee early in the game that is being taken care of by the player's mother. You can get a Lapras from an old lady in Pastoria City who has a small story to tell, and you can get a Beldum by talking to Steven, who is now taking up residence in Oreburgh City. And much more! There are also a number of additional NPCs that will do things such as sell you evolution items, give you items unique to certain Pokémon such as the Stick, and a whole new training NPC in Solaceon Town's Pokémon Daycare who will help you train your Pokémon in levels or EVs, making any necessary grinding a lot faster. The details for some of these modifications can be found in the NPC Changes and Special Events files in the documentation. Evolution Modifications Pokémon that previously had to be traded to evolve can now evolve within the game itself. Those that evolve by trade and did not require an item now simply evolve at Level 36. Those that did require an item can now evolve by having the item used on them, similar to an evolution stone. Additionally, a number of Pokémon have had their evolution levels lowered to make them easier to use. For example, Omanyte and Kabuto, who previously wouldn't evolve until a high level 40, now evolve at a much easier Level 30, allowing them to keep up with the other Pokémon in your teams. Finally, some evolution methods were changed to be less restrictive. Pokémon who could evolve from happiness at specific times of the day now just need to be happy, and Eevee, who previously required happiness and location evolutions, now uses standard evolutionary stones for all of its evolutions. The details for these modifications can be found in the Evolution Changes file in the documentation. Move Modifications A number of useless or rarely seen moves have been replaced with moves from later generations. Examples include Draining Kiss, Scald, Icicle Crash, Drill Run, Moonblast, Dazzling Gleam, Disarming Voice, Bulldoze, Play Rough, Hurricane and Wild Charge. New moves borrow animations from other moves that are similar (e.g. Drill Run uses Horn Drill's animation), or have animations that are slightly modified from a different move (e.g. Moonblast uses Mist Ball with a moon background). These new moves can be learnt by level up or in some cases, TM. In addition to this, a number of moves have had their stats adjusted slightly. For example, Shadow Punch and Shadow Claw are now a much stronger 80 base power. HMs in particular have been boosted to make them more attractive as battling moves, such as Fly now having 100% accuracy and Rock Climb being a Rock-type move. The details for these modifications can be found in the Move Changes file in the documentation. Item Modifications The locations of many items in the game have been shuffled around, allowing the player better access to them throughout the game. For example, the various evolution items are now found much earlier in the game, and can also be purchased from either the Veilstone Department Store, the Veilstone Game Corner or from an NPC in Snowpoint City. Locations for most items are shown in the Item Changes document. You'll be able to find items such as the EXP Share and the Soothe Bell much earlier than previously. TMs are now effectively infinite, as explained in the quality of life changes. Poké Balls, Great Balls and Ultra Balls have also been made cheaper to assist the player in what will likely end up being a greater amount of Pokémon caught than normal. A few previously unused items are now used or replaced with new Key Items as well, relevant to new events within the game. Additionally, the previously event only Key Items such as the Secret Key, Member's Card, Gracidea and Azure Flute can now be obtained and their relevant events unlocked within the normal gameplay. The details for these modifications can be found in the Item Changes file in the documentation. Trade Modifications The in-game trades found in Platinum have been adjusted to give you new Pokémon that are otherwise hard to find at the stage of the game the trade is at. For example, you can now trade for a Spheal in Oreburgh City. In addition to this, the obedience check that makes traded Pokémon not listen to you has been disabled, meaning you can use these traded Pokémon with no worries. The details for these modifications can be found in the Trade Changes file in the documentation. Documentation As you may have seen at the end of each section, there is documentation available in the form of text files for mostly every change that has been made in the game. The files are included in the download for the hack, but can also be viewed online at this link: https://pastebin.com/u/RenegadePlatinum. Screenshots Please open the spoiler below to see a number of screenshots of gameplay from Renegade Platinum. Tools Used BTX Editor: Made by KazoWAR, this tool was helpful for getting some new overworlds into the game, such as Steven, a few of the legendaries and more. crystaltile2: An invaluable tool for importing/exporting/locating particular files from NARCs, as well as being very helpful when implementing the Fairy-type. Hex Workshop: Helpful for those times where I needed to do things via hex editing. JackHack Tools: A number of tools from his site were used, including a Pokémon Editor, Attack Editor and Trade Editor. kiwiDS: Helpful for some cases where I needed to get the individual files for a NARC. Lua Scripts: A Lua script by Kaphotics that displayed the X/Y coordinate of the player on the map, allowing me to position overworlds correctly. PKHeX: While not used for actual development, it came in useful a few times to figure out how things worked. PokeDSPic Platinum: Used in a few cases where sprites had to be modified from their standard HG/SS versions. PPRE: Used primarily for scripting and placing overworlds on the map, as well as some text editing. Both 0.14b and 0.12 were used to get around the issues related to freezes caused when saving the script in 0.14b. SDSME: Used for editing text that wasn't tied to a map, as well as configuring the "weather" for places like Twinleaf Town and Wayward Cave. Tinke: Extremely helpful for some graphical changes, including the Steven trainer sprite and adding the Renegade Platinum logo to the title screen. I also used some tools that I made on my own to deal with the wild encounters and level up moves, as the existing tools had usability issues or bugs preventing me from doing what I wanted. These two tools aren't currently publicly available but I can hand them over on request, they're just a bit shoddy! Credits Alpha, SCV: The creators of PPRE, which was incredibly useful. JackHack96: I used a number of his tools when building the hack. JimB16: For his Platinum disassembly on GitHub. While it wasn't used to actually develop with, it came in useful quite a few times to locate certain bits of data (including the solution for dealing with the traded Pokémon obedience issue). Kaphotics: A very talented hacker in the data mining sense, Kaphotics' wealth of NDS knowledge helped me to avoid one or two potential issues as I was building the game; his advice was incredibly helpful. The Lua scripts for the player's position and the Instant Text code that is implemented into the "SpeedUpPatch" were both made by him, too. KazoWAR: For his BTX editor tool as well as his YouTube tutorial on adding Trainer sprites to Pt/HG/SS via Tinke. Markitus95: The creator of SDSME, which was also useful. MeroMero: Another extremely talented NDS hacker, MeroMero posted a lot of tutorials on Project Pokémon that were directly relevant to things I wanted to do, such as changing the shiny rate or finding out how to adjust the position of Pokémon sprites in battle. His tutorial for adding Fairy-type to HG/SS was also what I adapted to get it working in Platinum. Finally, the Gen 6 mini Pokémon icons were also completely thanks to him (as seen here: https://projectpokemon.org/home/forums/topic/36081-gen-6-pokémon-icons-for-gen-4-and-5/). mikelan98: An extremely talented NDS hacker, he produced lots of helpful tutorials for NDS hacking, and it was also him who provided files allowing me to show Pokémon locations in the Pokédex and for the Fairy-type icon to display correctly in the Pokédex. Both of these would have been impossible without him! sylphate: A talented graphics artist who made the logo for Renegade Platinum. He's also the artist for the logo for my Rising Ruby and Sinking Sapphire hacks! I'd also like to thank my fanbase in general, who are always very encouraging and excitable. It wouldn't be half as fun to make these without you guys around! Known Bugs Open the spoiler if you want to see any known bugs for the game. All known bugs are inconsequential and shouldn't cause any real problems when playing, but a lot are rather difficult to fix. Download The download for Renegade Platinum's patches can be found at my Google Drive at this link: https://t.co/pljSVD0yyG. The RenegadePlatinumV130.zip contains a few things. There's documentation text files, a patch to change a Platinum ROM into a Renegade Platinum ROM, and then some additional patches which can be applied to a Renegade Platinum ROM which can give you the classic version (less Pokémon changes), increase speed and/or change the shiny rate. It also includes a recommended patcher called Delta Patcher Lite (which may only be usable on Windows - Mac users can try MultiPatch), a changelog for the game and some instructions on how to patch. There's also Readme files in each patch folder to further explain what each of the different files do and what you need to do to get it working correctly. If you get into any problems, make sure you've read the Readme files first. Generally, you will need to get a Platinum ROM (which you'll have to obtain by yourself), then use the correct patch for that as there's a v1 and a v1.1 of Platinum. After that, you can then apply additional patches to it with Delta Patcher Lite, but you may need to uncheck the "checksum validation" when using additional patches to be able to apply more than two of them to your game. The changelog and the documents are also available at that link if you wish to see them online. Contact If you wish to contact me for any reason, the fastest way is to shoot me a message on my Twitter: @Drayano60.

    That Absol originated in LeafGreen. It could never have been a Shadow Pokemon and therefore could never have been purified.

    Last week, I already pre-ordered from an eBay seller (whom I have had good dealing with) for 4 of each code. The trust-worthy peeps on eBay wait until they receive confirmation of dates for receiving the codes with the movie/event ticket orders in Japan. #muchexcite (Wish I hadn't pooch'd my CFW Online this month to be able to share the loaded Gifts for the database.)

    You can use this to hack your 2ds https://3ds.hacks.guide/ I suggest you check point to menage your save games: https://github.com/FlagBrew/Checkpoint/releases Ps. I don't know if it was intentional but you took the same profile picture as @theSLAYER

    Hi! A few months ago I wondered if there are any tools to make custom PMD2 ROM Hacks. I found out that much work on the games had been done, but there wasn't really any user friendly GUI editor to make custom ROM hacks. So I decided, I'd give it a shot and try to make my own. This tool can edit both the ROMs of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky EU / NA. Now, before I begin, I want to stress that NONE of this would have been even remotely possible without people like @psy_commando, @Nerketur, @evandixon, @MegaMinerd or any of the other PMD ROM hackers. I'm not somebody who's good at reverse engineering ROMs or actually finding out how stuff works. They did all the hard work (especially Psy!) and they deserve all the credit for it! All I did was filling some gaps and building this editor, that I'll now present to you...: Features Map Background Editor Let's you view and edit the backgrounds of the map. Supports importing map backgrounds from image files. The collision of the map can also be changed. Scene Editor Let's you edit how the sprites of Pokémon and Objects are placed on the map and how cutscenes are built. Script Editor / Debugger Let's you edit the script files of the game and debug them in realtime. > Script Editing You can edit all scripts in the game with features like auto-completion and calltips. > Debugging You can set breakpoints and let the game halt at different parts of the code. > Debug Overlay A debug overlay shows you where objects, triggers and Pokémon are rendered and what their hitboxes are > Game State View the current state of the Ground Engine, the game's script engine: What scripts and scenes are currently loaded and which actors and objects are placed on the map? > Variables View and modify the current game variables in real time. > ExplorerScript ExplorerScript is a new high level language that the scripts in SkyTemple are written in. It is compiled to the binary code (SSB) that the game uses. ASM Patches Apply ASM patches to the game, with support for importing custom patches via ZIP files. Pokémon Data Basic support for editing Pokémon data and portraits also exists. Planned Features - Sprite editing via integration of Psy's Sprite Editor - Basic dungeon settings (layouts, floors, Pokémon, names, boss fights) - Editing Dungeon graphics - Editing items, moves, abilities (text and maybe some settings?) - Editing the credits - Editing the personality test and settings for the default Pokémon and available starters Source Code Can be found on GitHub: https://github.com/skytemple Downloads Are you a Mac developer? Please get in touch with me, if you want to help creating a release for Mac! Discord We have a Discord community for support: https://discord.gg/4e3X36f

    Zarude is not obtainable yet, therefore it is not legal until it is officially released (via Mystery Gift/etc).

    Since downloading the update for Pokemon sword for the new Dlc my save file is flagging as too large to open, not sure if will have to wait for a new pkhex update or not for this to be resolved but felt like it may help others just in cass they run into the same issue i am if it's noted on the forums that it is flagging for that

    Currently I don't have a higher quality scan of it, but I've dumped the card's data through an e+ reader. https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php?page=show_record&s=41&n=3212 The dump should be good as I scanned the card many times and got mostly the same data.

    1. Homebrew Channel was used for the Wii; if you're referring to the 3DS, that's the Homebrew Launcher, to which the answer is yes (see this guide). If you mean Switch, see this guide. 2. There are Homebrew alternatives to PKHeX such as PKSM, though they are different in terms of use and I'd personally recommend PKHeX + Checkpoint as your save manager of choice. You can also use ftpd to quickly move your save data over from 3DS/Switch to PC. 3. On 3DS, you're basically as safe as can be and nobody's been banned for just running Homebrew. On Switch, nobody's been banned for just using Homebrew, mainly only for piracy and cheating online. If you're only using Homebrew to do save edits and offline ROM hacks (such as a randomizer) then you'll be fine. 4. PKHeX is strictly a save editor and only deals with editing what your save file has in it (Pokémon, Items, Trainer Info, etc). pk3DS and pkNX are ROM editors which serve the purpose of editing/randomizing your game.
