  1. I've been getting the low battery notification on my Pokewalker on and off for the last few weeks. I thought it was odd because I recalled changing it last year but figured I was just using it a lot (and I was, relatively). It abruptly died this week, and I went to swap the battery. When I opened it up and replaced the battery, it worked again. Out of curiosity I got out a multimeter and tested the 'bad' one, and it read '2.94V'...isn't that still great for a 3V battery? Why wasn't this working? I didn't try to put it back in, but I guess I could try. To be clear, last year I replaced the original battery with a new Duracell 2032 battery rated for like 10 years (so until like 2032 lmao). Also really bothers me that inside the battery cavity it shows the '+' sign as if you are supposed to put in the battery upside down (coin battery text not readable when installed) but it clearly does not work like that.
  2. Actually, I think that is a different scenario. I guess the best way would be to just test it, but there are technically 3 states. 1. Good battery, synchronized clock 2. Good battery, UNsynchronized clock 3. Bad Battery, no clock I am pretty sure it recognizes number 2 and refuses to distribute just the same. Why it would distribute in this case of 3 and not 2 is unknown to me.
  3. I could have sworn Jirachi throws a similar error with a dead/unsynchronized battery, are you certain? That home-brew tool is superb btw; works super nice. Thanks for sharing! I will check out the GitHub page.
  4. Is there some way to modify a save to fix a corrupted clock (from a battery going dry) in Ruby/Sapphire so that you can receive the Shiny RUBY/SAPHIRE Zigzoon or WISHMKR Jirachi? Currently the only method I know of is to Replace the Battery, Restart the Game, and Save. Clearly this is not desirable in most cases. If there is no solution to this, can someone please educate me on why?
  5. Well, that did it. Just how I left it (I think; it's been 4 month). Tears in my eyes man, thanks! So you confirmed my theory...that the save itself was fine but the pointer to the save file was out of place in memory. Can you describe what happened?
  6. My SoulSilver I was grinding on got the blue screen of death out of nowhere. Was playing religiously for months, then put my 3DS into rest mode and didn't touch it for weeks. It died. I continued to walk with the Pokwalker until I maxed out the steps, and then was greeted with the blue corruption screen when I opened the game back up. My only guess is I didn't actually wait for the save dialog to finish before closing my 3DS (really unlike me, but whatever). Game is legit (bought new single owner) and no sign of damage (didn't drop the 3DS either). So, I have the save here (dumped with GodMode), DeSmuME says it's corrupted too. So it's something with the save itself, not the cart. Opening in PokeHex (I have no preference, this is just what I l have used before) and literally everything is still there. So how do I go about restoring this content onto the cart (and have it still be compatible with my poke walker)? Do I just generate a new save and copy over all trainer info, progress flags, and pokemon/items? Thank you! POKEMON_SS_IPGE01_00.sav
  7. Soft resetting will change the reward as well as the scores of the other participants. I imagine you have already found the answer but I am replying for others.
  8. Hi, How were 10 ANIV Celebi's distributed? Is it similar to a standard cart with filled PC boxes (like MYSTRY Mew)? Is this Celebi the only released Gen III English Celebi? Thanks
  9. Hey guys! Maybe you already knew this, maybe you didn't: It goes without saying that these are JAPANESE Pokemon cards, so what better place to buy them then from Japan? I have recently discovered Buyee which gives me easy access to many of Japan's online marketplaces. Including used goods! I have found a lot of what I was needing for my collection on Mercari JP using Buyee, for prices MUCH more reasonable than eBay! Unfortunately LOL I still don't have those 2 cards I made the post about, but the search is coming to an end! Sorry if that sounded like an advertisement, but I am so excited I have bought like 5 things from Mercari JP now that I have been searching years for. Check it out if you are serious about your collection.
  10. @SkyLink98 One more question actually since you know what you're talking about. 1. Pokemon Box Ruby & Sapphire: Normal pokemon eggs have its contents determined at the time of being obtained (species, stats, nature, etc). If I wanted to generate multiple unique eggs for each of the 4 special gift eggs, would it stand that I would need 4 separate save states (each saved prior to receiving said egg)?
  11. Not to be misleading with my title, obviously you can not 'soft-reset' for these types of distributions. With the advent of being able to dump save files (what I equate to save states), I have questions about distributing Ho-Oh and Celebi. They are basically the same questions twice: Ho-Oh: You can normally only receive 1 per completed Colosseum save file. 1. If I were to save after the 99th person and dump the save, could I potentially keep defeating the 100th trainer, receiving Ho-Oh, transfer it, and then reload the save file to repeat the process? 2. If YES, to the above, will the Ho-Oh's distributed this way be unique? If they are not unique, at what point is the Ho-OH 'RNG seed' determined? 3. Could this same procedure work for obtaining all three Johto starters in XD? (saving of course only after the 90th trainer in this case because of Story Mode Mt. Battle 'Zones') Celebi: You can normally only receive 48 Celebi's on a GBA cart (with national dex) per a completed Colosseum save file. 1. Is this number (48) counter tied to the Colosseum save file? Does the bonus disk use any memory card? 2. Will a save dump (of Colosseum) prior to distributing Celebi provide for 'infinite Celebi's' off a single colosseum play through (assuming the save dump is reloaded prior to every distribution)? 3. If YES, to the above, will the Celebi's distributed this way be unique, or more specifically, the very first Celebi distributed? If the first Celebi distributed on each re-load is not unique, at what point is the RNG seed determined? Are there only 48 unique Ageto Celebi's in total for all bonus discs? 4. Are these answers the same for the Light ball Pikachu on disc as well? THANK YOU!
  12. Okay, now this topic has been addressed before in regards to distribution cartridges (actually just being development cartridges), but this is literally just a normal game cart with a bunch of mews on it right? What is stopping someone from flashing their game cart with this save and posing the game as an original cart? Any way to actually tell an original? Like this guy here...who has THREE for sale... https://www.ebay.com/sch/pokeg-15/m.html?item=293761734761&hash=item4465905869%3Ag%3AFXsAAOSwf2hfdRod&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
