  1. Sorry everyone, I probably gave off the impression that I actually know much of anything about this. I'm just starting to learn about this stuff, so I apologize if I say stuff that's wrong. Thank you for your time and patience. I managed to inject the save file into my VC copy of Red. 


    Also, I'm brand spanking new to posting on any kind of forum. I apologize for breaking rules. I read through the rules before posting, but I guess I didn't get a full enough understanding of everything. This is all just very overwhelming and new to me. I appreciate the help and info though. Feel free to archive this post now!

    If you don't care about legality, that can probably work.
    If you care about legality, well it won't be legal.

    yeah I kind of care about legality unfortunately. It wouldn't really feel like a victory for me if I decided to just transfer it in like that. I think I'll start with trying to inject the YOSHIHIRA.sav file into a VC of Red/Blue/Yellow

    As @theSLAYER said you can't have a legal 1st gen cart Mew in gen 8.

    But you can have a legit VC 1st gen Mew in gen 8. You can import this VC event Mew in your 3DS VC 1st/2nd gen game and then use Bank+HOME to transfer it in gen 8.

    (It exists also a dumped 3DS cia of VC Mew distribution rom, that you can use in a 2nd 3DS to transfer a legit VC Mew event in a VC 1st/2nd gen game).

    Thanks for the info! I might do that for fun later but I'm hyper focused on trying to get the YOSHIRA event Mew out of the sav file and into a VC version of Red/Blue/Yellow so I can have as legit copy somewhere.

    In fact it seems like Mew is the only one to not be transferable due to the event not being reintroduced while Celebi was. Some Pokemon with certain egg moves (like odd egg lucky punch Pokemon) can be transferred as long as it has forgotten those moves. I'm unsure of event moves like surfing Pikachu. If you have a physical cartridge you can buy a device to transfer that data to the VC version before the battery dies. We should all already know what happens then. Hope this helps with further questions.

    The save file I have is the YOSHIRA.sav file that was originally extracted from a legit GameStop distribution cartridge before the battery died. Right now, I'm trying to find out how to bring the event Mews from that save file over to a VC of the game. Do you have any recommendations as to what device I should get? I have an EZ Flash Cart but I'm unable to access the menu when I turn on my Gameboy color.

    There is no legal way to transfer from cart to VC.

    As a result, such a Mew cannot be legally transferred up to the recent games, and the Transporter takes that into account.

    Can I at least get the event Mew into a VC version of Red/Blue/Yellow? It would be nice just to have a legit Gen 1 event Mew from way back when in a Gen 1 game.

    Since the save is from an emulator it will be larger then the Virtual Console save; therefore, you'll need to open the save in a hex editor and trim the end of the save to be the same length as the Virtual Console save.

    okay I have no idea how to do that but I'll give it a try haha! Thanks!

  4. Hi everyone!


    I just was wondering if it's possible to inject the save file from the Gen 1 Yoshira Mew event into a virtual copy of Pokemon Red/Blue on the 3DS. I've tried to do it myself several times, but I just can't get it. Every time I try to inject the save file, the virtual console keeps telling me it doesn't support external save files or something like that. If you don't know what I'm talking about in regards to the Mew event, you can read about it here: 



    I've also tried injecting the save files into a flash cart but I was also unsuccessful at doing that too. However, I'll save that question for the flash cart discussion forum.


    Thank you for your time! Any help is appreciated!

    Are you attempting to inject a save from an emulator or cartridge into your Virtual Console?

    Technically yes. It's a .sav file from an emulated version of Mew from the North American Gamestop event. It keeps giving me a message on my virtual console saying some kind of error having to do with not being able to support save files from other formats or something like that.

  6. Hi everyone!


    This is my first post on this site! 


    I have a question regarding the Gen 1 Event Mew that was distributed in the United States from December 8th-12th in 1999 through Toys R US (RIP). If you want to know more about it, *snipped by mod, discussion pertaining to obtaining ROMs not allowed*


    Over the past few months, I've been trying to figure out a way to figure out a way to extract the Mew from the Yoshira ROM and put it into either a Gen 1 game, or Pokemon Sword/Shield. I tried using PKHEX, but it doesn't look like there's any data to support this event Mew specifically. 


    Anyway, my question is whether or not there are plans to add data to PKHEX so that I can have a legit Gen 1 event Mew in the latest games, and even in my own copy of Pokemon Red. 



    P.S. I'm a small YouTuber and I plan on making a video out of this project a soon as I can figure out a solution for my conundrum. I'll be crediting the person who saved the Mew event data from the original distribution cart, and whoever else helps me find a solution! 


    Thank you so much!
