  1. Wow, so they use PkHeX as a reference? Perhaps take the source code and incorporate it into their own system (including whenever PkHeX is updated with new legality checks)? Very interesting stuff to say the least..
  2. This is the most interesting part - do they visit PPorg at all? Do they use PkHeX for their own research? Honestly at this point: if they really want to stop (bad) hacking, they just need to hire you guys.
  3. Editing items for Colosseum/XD with PkHeX could still mess up the Shadow Monitor, as PkHeX doesn't seem to handle the Shadow Monitor well at all. If you want to edit while minimizing the risk of the Shadow Monitor messing up, I'd recommend the editing program PkmGCSaveEditor. It's a save editor for Colosseum/XD which seems to leave the Shadow Monitor unchanged/un-corrupted when you make other edits.
  4. I've had this issue before. It seems to be because PkHeX tries to update the shadow monitor whenever an update is made to a Shadow Pokemon that is tied to one of the Shadow Monitor slots (e.g. changing PID), but it often updates it improperly and causes major problems.
  5. Since Pokemon made its way onto the Switch (LGPE / SWSH), Pokemon now have individual height and weight values. These values are only relevant in LGPE, yet still exist in the Pokemon's data structure in SWSH (and change from one Pokemon to the next, even of the same species). Clearly it's a random value that is assigned, but is it tied to anything? Could it affect legality?
  6. It is in fact possible to do this - download PkmGCSaveEditor, open your Colo/XD save file and click "Strategy Memo". This will show you the PID of each Pokemon when that Pokemon was first generated in your game. Unfortunately this also includes non-Shadow Pokemon, and so if there is a case where you first encounter a non-Shadow version of a Pokemon before engaging in it's actual Shadow encounter, the game will record the PID of the non-Shadow one. However, these cases are pretty rare, so chances are you should be fine. Let me know if you need any additional info / help!
  7. Do we think this will impact shinies that have been transferred up from previous gens? As in: my shiny Charizard has a PID such that it will end up potentially being an Ultra Shiny once it arrives to SWSH?
  8. Just an FYI: Timid is one of the best natures for Suicune. Regardless, you could simply edit the nature of your Suicune to be Calm - it wouldn't impact the legality of it.

    It's a current bug with PkHeX, I'm having the same issues
  10. For it to be Shiny with you as the original trainer, we'd need to know your Trainer ID/Secret ID (if you want it to be your own Mewtwo). Otherwise, here you go: 150 ★ - Mewtwo - F68E75404DC5.pk7
  11. Hi StarsMmd,

    I saw your XG rom hack and had a few questions:

    1. Do you know where in the save file the Shadow Monitor data is?
    2. More specifically, where the data for each Pokemon registered in the Shadow Monitor is?

    I'd like to edit a few Pokemon in my save file's shadow monitor registry using a hex editor - is the PID saved for each Shadow Pokemon or is it simply gender and ball used to catch it?

    Thank you for your time,

      I'm not sure of the exact location but I can tell you what the data looks like so you can search for it. The pid is saved once the pokemon is first seen in battle.

       

      Alternatively, if you send me the unencrypted save file I can search for it and let you know where it is. :-)

  12. So for Nascour's Metagross, which is the only shadow Pokemon but comes out last: is Metagross's PID still not team locked and therefore can have almost any Colo/XD PID legally?
  13. The code in the first url you linked to: for Colosseum, it only lists Makuhita, Gligar, Murkrow, Heracross, and Ursaring. Does this mean that these are the only five shadow Pokemon in Colosseum with PID team locks? And if so, does that mean that we can use the simple Colosseum/XD PID generator in RNGReporter for all the other shadow Pokemon in Colosseum (without regards for team PID lock like in XD)?
  14. Very Interesting stuff - Thank you so much for entertaining my curiosity!
