    You're loading it to a GameBoy/Emulator save file, which is not a 3DS virtual console save file. Celebi is only obtainable on the virtual console.

    Can you sorf reset until it has marvel scale or does it only have shed skin?


    The stat card clearly indicates it is Shed Skin. Pretty much every event is either never-Hidden, or always-Hidden.

    This might be a dumb question, but how do you download the actual game? When I choose the download file button, it just downloads the documentation and the patch and patcher files. Am I just being dumb? Haha.

    Apply the patch to your copy of the game that you dumped from your physical copy & console.

    Hello together

    I have only just discovered your great forum.

    When I try to transfer the file 151 - MEW - 6E8C.pk1 with PKHex to my savefile, I get the following message.


    I can use Mew in the game without problems, but PKHEx does not report it's an legal Mew.

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

    You imported a Virtual Console event to a non-Virtual Console save file.

    The original RBY-GSC era cannot communicate with the 3DS virtual console. This GF Mew event never existed 20 years ago.

    so this is only for pokemon sun and moon right?

    The Sun/Moon demo can only link with Sun/Moon. Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon cannot receive the gift.

    @Kaphotics Would you mind checking out the main115 file of this? I haven't followed PkHex much the last couple of months, but apparently since the last update a lot of the pre-Gen7 pokemon in this save became illegal. If you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

    Nothing made them 'become' illegal. They were illegal to begin with -- PKHeX adds new checks every so often.

    The legality check has flagged them as follows:

    Invalid: Incorrectly transferred from previous generation.

    If you look at the source code, that message is saved as "LTransferBad", which is referenced in one check.

    Probably pkhex thinks it is a dupe.

    No, PKHeX doesn't do any 3IV collision detection as there's only 2 instances of this happening:


    When the internal event binary is built, the 3IV is included first, and the No IV is included second; Directory.GetFiles doesn't return stuff in a defined order.

    I've updated PKHeX's behavior so that it plays favorites with the worse of the two cards.

    Hi, why it marks ilegal on purpose?

    Because only the PIDIV algorithm is known; the species-PIDIV relationship isn't.

    It's best to positively recognize them as PCNYx, but not give fake hacks a sense of validity.

    New to all of this, so I have a quick question.

    I'm trying to get a low-leveled Seel for my wife on LeafGreen/FireRed. We have the ROM of the game, that way she can play it up on the TV through RetroPie on the RaspberryPi.

    However, the only save file I can find through the pi is a .srm file, which doesn't seem to be compatible with this program. Or at least I'm not doing something right.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :-)

    you need to get the battery/sav file, not a savestate/snapshot.

    @gauxel hey, next time do write a comment instead of a review, as I can't reply directly to reviews.

    Right now, PKHeX is still adding legality checks, so many legality checks on pre XYORASSM Pokemon will be invalid at this point.

    The PKM itself was previously collected by our Event Staff, so its legal :)

    Serebii lists it as Female Only

    PKHeX thus requires Female Only

    Download is male; the encounter isn't permitted to match the entree forest female-only entry, thus the invalid messages.
