  1. Maybe stacksmashing could help you reverse the link protocol, he's reverse engineered Tetris to the point its playable online via a server / special dongle he's made: You might have already seen this, however it was only released a couple of weeks a go, so possibly not. I'd certainly be interested in this, I always wanted to be able to link my GameBoy up to the PC and trade online as a kid, it would be great if that was finally possible!
  2. Finally, caught the last one as I arrived at work this morning. You should hopefully get Dark finished today Tiffany, Purrloin seems to be spawning quite frequently. Make 3 Excellent Throws in a row rewards Gible if you can find that task. Your local Pogo community might be posting when Gible and Noibat spawn, we've been messaging each other when spawns have been sighted. Although still pretty rare we seem to have been averaging a few reports a day recently. For Ghost i've noticed Gastly seems to spawn on an morning / evening between events which affect wild spawns.
  3. For anyone still struggling with 30 dark types remember to play on April 1st, Purrloin will be one of the featured spawns for that day only. Source: BREAKING: Pokémon mischief is on the rise, and Team GO Rocket has an Aipom problem - Pokémon GO (pokemongolive.com) I'm slowly getting there, I just need 5 dark to progress now
  4. Apparently Poochyena spawns a lot more in the southern hemisphere, so you could be on to something there. Most people I know in the local area are stuck on dark types now, however have everything else done. Good luck with the 1510!
  5. Nice to see for 3/4 you will just naturally progress with normal playing, I suspect by the time I've done 151 field research tasks everything else will be long completed. I finished the Dragon-type this evening, just 18 more dark types to go, those rocket grunts are not been generous
  6. You should be able to dump the save with an Ultra Save Cart Tool, that should support all save types and even development carts. Keep in mind I don't own this or an N64, just posting the info as I'd noticed this thread had gone unanswered.
  7. Good tip with the rocket grunts! After slowly grinding away battling 300 grunts and 50 leaders to level up I'd kind of been ignoring most of them recently. I wonder what steps 3 and 4 will involve, I suspect based on the 30 days minimum to pass step 2, a lot more time gated activities.
  8. We've had a few Noibat and Gible spawning recently which has helped with the Dragon part of the quest, I've some how managed to get up to 21 Dragon now. Dark types are few and far between in my area though. I'm at 11/30 for Dark and 28/30 for Ice.
  9. Its funny reading back this old group thread and remembering times it was possible to fail a raid with 12 people in the lobby! These days I’ve since managed to duo or trio many raid bosses. My local area was eventually transformed with many stops and gyms, meaning I could give up trying to do raids after work before going home and enjoy doing them on an evening with a local raid squad that gradually came together in the area. That was the point I really got in to raiding and enjoyed it.
  10. I know what you mean! Swinub, Spheal and Snover still nest, as does Poochyena, so its possible a nest at a local park could help with Ice / Dark types at some point. Dragon types though... time to release Dialga / Palkia in raids as shinies! or Gible community day, i'd take either haha.
  11. How are people getting on with the quest line for shiny Mew? I'm 9/30 for Catching a Pokemon 30 days in a row and just have some Ice, Dragon and Dark types to catch. I've a feeling Dragon types might hold me back a while as most of those we're Dratini from Incense during the Kanto event. 19/30 Ice 12/30 Dragon 9/30 Dark The PCNY Mew for Gen 2 could be shiny: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Gotta_Catch_'Em_All_event_Pokémon#Shiny_Mew with a 0.5% chance. Although this only became more common knowledge once the distribution hardware was obtained, I do wonder if anyone was actually lucky enough to get one back in 2002. This Go event is really the first truly legit way most people outside of Japan have of obtaining their own shiny Mew that can be used in current games, so i'm quite excited for this one.
  12. You wouldn't be able to migrate these Mews through Poke Transporter anyway. The only English Mew that can get though is the Virtual Console Mew with the OT "GF". Sure you could edit the OT on these Mew's to get them though, however they would just be another hacked Pokemon then.
  13. People have also got banned from simply restoring a save game to their clean Sysnand if you look at the banning reports on GBA Temp. Its not to say these people didn't do more though, or do this when connected to the internet. However its likely Nintendo can detect save game editing and ban for that also.
  14. You risk getting banned, it seems a pointless risk if you value online functionality on the Switch. Pokemon Home will be released soon anyway, so you can then transfer one across legitimately.
  15. For several years now Pokemon distributions for the Gen 3 GameBoy Advance games have been turning up on sites like Ebay. With that in mind you might think it’s controversial I have recently shared how these official GBA development flash carts these are been sold on can easily be re-flashed: Flash / Write Official GBA Development Flash Carts With An Nintendo DS This means GBA prototypes and Pokemon Distributions can now easily be duplicated, with replicas sold on as the real thing for significant amounts of money on Ebay. The Problem: Although not talked about, the sad reality of the situation is method of re flashing GBA devcarts has been exploited in certain circles to keep selling clones of rare Pokémon event distributions for many €1000’s on Ebay, passing them off as originals. Myself and others in the Pokemon community have long since suspected this was been done, however no conclusive proof has ever been obtained on how this was been done. Even asking on communities such as Assmebler Games which deal with obscure development hardware revealed little to suggest it was easy to clone these distributions, or the official GBA development hardware was readily available to purchase. With that in mind people have been happy to purchase these distribution replicas, sometimes for as much as €2000 on Ebay, believing their genuine and were used at past Nintendo events. When certain Pokemon distributions have been dumped it been possible to see remnants of what was previously flashed to the card, as these Official GBA Development Flash Carts are much larger than the actual Pokemon event distribution software. In one such example we can see Mortal Kombat Advance had simply been overwrote on this particular cart. This was always suspicious as we very much doubted Game Freak has been using second hand development cartridges obtained from Midway Games, although not impossible. What is somewhat ironic is myself and others had basically worked out how GBA devcarts were been re flashed a long time ago, it was just never possible to test the theory. It's possible to Flash / Write Official GBA Development Flash Carts With An Nintendo DS using the FAS1 homebrew application, as shown in the video below: I’d personally been using FAS1 to flash my old Flash2Advance flashcard for years, using an Nintendo DS Lite. I knew later versions of FAS1 were supposed to have support for GBA development flashcards, although at the time I had no compiled binaries of newer versions of FAS1 or even a GBA development flashcard to test this theory with. That all changed earlier this year when a compiled version of FAS1 was was obtained and two different GBA development carts were purchased for testing. Needless to say re flashing a official GBA development flash cart now took less time than it did to make a good cuppa tea. Genuine Pokemon Generation 3 Distributions: Now you might be thinking real distributions must have been on the market at some point for the distributions out there today to be dumped. You’d be correct, some of these sold in 2012 on Nintendo Age, these were of course sealed in a GBA. To assist you with potentially identifying these in the future here are images of original GBA Pokemon Gen 3 distributions that we know of, sealed in their respective units: 10 ANNIV: Aura Mew: BFG Shiny Zigzagoon: US Aurora Ticket: EU Eon Ticket: (Probably dumped, however not dumped / released that I know of): Where is the conclusive proof? You'd be right in thinking I've made a lot of claims and not posted much proof, I honestly don't have any interest in all the drama that comes with that. If you wan't to believe me thats great, if not that's cool, I'd sooner people just know how easy it is to clone Gen 3 Pokemon distributions that are on development hardware and have as much information as possible to enable them to make an informed purchasing decision in the future. Myself and various people in the Pokemon event community have seen said proof of such activities earlier in the year, so its out there and if you ask around i'm sure you will also find it. Conclusion: I think I've shared enough information on how its been done to bring widespread awareness to the practice, which will hopefully make people think twice before spending a lot of money on a distribution which has already been dumped and released just to "own something original". In the event something genuine does surface you have a good idea of what it might look like from the above images, certainly i'd be a lot more inclined to believe its an original if it was sealed in a GBA. So at least now the information is out there people can make an informed decision before purchasing a Pokemon Distribution in the future. If it’s a standalone devcart please think twice before purchasing it, hopefully meaning theirs less chance of a replica getting passed off as the genuine thing on Ebay. Approximately 5 or less sealed units of each GBA event should theoretically exist, other than clearly not accounting for as many that have been sold over the years, no one with the original unit in their right mind would destroy the seal to dump the rom when there are ways to do it via the link port if they did some research. In addition anyone wants to develop homebrew for the GBA and has an official GBA development card can now make use of it and easily write their own homebrew to it, just as developers did all those years ago.
