  1. For Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs (from digiex) two saves exist. One includes the downloadable missions with no story data, so that might help. The saves had been dumped with a gameshark / action replay, so I converted them to the standard .sav format so they can be wrote back to real game carts and used on emulators / flash cards. That's about all I can tell you unfortunately, I never personally played through any of the ranger games. Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs - Deoxys, Manaphy Egg, Heatran & Shaymin Save.zip
  2. Pretty much this. Just to give some idea about whats been possible to date, during the candy part of the event from 18 Meltan I got 216 candy for catching with a Pinap and another 36 for transferring them. On the December 19th I had a Melmetal with another 226 candy towards the next: Fast forward to today I now have 762 candy and should be able to get around another 108 candy after 9pm tonight, meaning I could have fully evolved 3 Meltan without even putting any rare candies in to them: I could have probably got around 108 candy more, as i took quite a few days to unlock the Go park, then I've waited a day here and there to use the Mystery Box. You could also get another 3x candy a day for a 100km or greater trade, however for most of my Meltan trades the distance has been less than 10k. Anyone who got Melmetal on day one used rare candies, some people in my area are walking about with 500+ candies at the moment.
  3. Nintendo has always been against hacking, historically the security on past Nintendo consoles has always been defeated quite quickly. In addition Nintendo has never really banned people from online play until well in to the 3DS's lifetime. However with the 3DS people started abusing stuff, for example homebrew applications to download everything on the Eshop for free... So needless to say the Switch was released with much greater security, some of it even backported to the 3DS. Saves are now stored on the Switch regardless of if the game is a physical game cartridge, or a downloadable title. So the only way to access this save is by hacking the Switch. The only hack usable to the end user is the RCM hack, which exploited a hardware flaw in a lot of earlier Switch consoles. Nintendo managed to patch this hardware flaw in newer Switch consoles, meaning theirs currently no way to use homebrew applications to extract your saves if you have a newer Switch console. If you have used a hacked 3DS with homebrew applications to extract your saves, then its really no harder on the Switch. It is however harder to find a Switch that is still hackable in the wild compared to the 3DS. You need to do some research and work out if your Switch is hackable or not. If it is all you really need is a jig from Ebay and a USB to USB Type C cable to send the payload from your computer to get started with Switch hacking, presuming of course your Switch is hackable. If you purchased your Nintendo Switch before June 2018 it should be, if you purchased it after that it might or might not be.
  4. TWLSaveTool on a homebrew enabled 3DS is the way to go for backing up and restoring DS saves. For GBA games GBA Backup Tool used with a DS Flashcard on a DS / DS Lite is the most user friendly way I find. No need to worry about drivers / operating systems with the above tools, all you need is the ability to read an SD / Micro SD card on your computer.
  5. A show on Japanese TV channel NHK recently aired concept illustrations of several Pokemon designs from Gen 1. Hopefully this isn't old news to everyone, I don't recall seeing this image before however: You can however find full images of the ones below on the Bulbapedia Capsule Monsters page and the Glitterberri Early Concept Art article: Tweet the above images are from:
  6. That's a very good point about Pokemon Stadium GS, certainly a needle in the haystack as you say. However with the recently Space World 97 it gives me hope such luck could happen. I've often thought their must be a Japanese equivalent to Project Pokemon, although it was never the most easy thing to do back in the day i'm pretty sure some people in the Japanese community would have had the foresight to back their saves up and are still active in the Pokemon community today.
  7. Discussion of the game doesn't really seem to fit in any of the forum sections here, so thought i'd started a discussion thread as I know at least a couple of people on Project Pokemon are very active on the game. Now Go has connectivity to the Switch it's likely this will probably be expanded upon with the Gen 8 game released in 2019, Nintendo seem to be keen on bringing the two distinctly different audiences together. So will likely become more impotent as its the only way to get Meltan and Melmetal at the moment. Personally I really enjoy Pokemon Go, something I never expected to when I randomly downloaded the app in July 2016, however i've been pretty hooked since. I do love the whole community aspect of the game and have made a few new friends out playing Go, as well as playing with friends i've know for the last 20+ years. Just today I was out doing some Heatran raids with my friend and we bumped in to some students from China who had recently started University over here and got in to the game. They were really pleased for us to join them doing some Heatran raids as they were not strong enough to win the raid between them. I've never seen someone so happy to catch their first legendary Pokemon on the last ball it is moments like that I think the game is great for, it really does bring people together. I did exceptionally well today (going by past luck), in my first raid I got a Shiny Alolan Marowak, then I went on to do the Ex Raid my friend invited me to. Here I got a 98% Deoxys, then after that we went around town and did some Heatran raids, here I got my first ever 100% legendary Pokemon! So do feel free to share your stories or latest catches from Pokemon Go!
  8. It would be really nice to get a distributed Japanese Event Celebi, in some ways its the missing piece of the puzzle now have some Space World Mews from Japan. Given that Gen 2 games have a much shorter battery lifespan due to the RTC these would have had to have already been preserved, chances of finding them on a cart in the wild today are probably 0% now. I've been randomly on the look out for one, however nothing as of yet. I'm pretty sure some of these will have been preserved at some point though.
  9. Thank you again for your efforts on this Deoxys, I'm still impressed how lucky it was this randomly turned up and everything came together for it to be preserved
  10. @Afepoke shared the Mews in this thread last year: Japanese Generation I Pokemon PKM Files
  11. Project Pokemon has a pretty comprehensive event gallery with downloads of event Pokemon going as far back as the original Gen 1 games. You can download the Pokeball Plus Mew here, the Birthday 2018 Chansey event has also been added.
  12. Wow great work @Gridelin and thank you Th4tGuyUKn0 for allowing this event to be preserved. It's certainly appreciated by many now and will be by even more in years to come Strange to think i'd never even heard of Pokemon when that Mew was distributed, the games and anime had yet to make it to the UK then. Internet access was pretty limited then too and not something most people had at home to find out about it online. Certainly a great piece of Pokemon history you've preserved there, it's really impressive the batteries in some of these carts are lasting 20+ years.
  13. It appears it is one Mew per Pokeball Plus, I received the Mew on Lets Go Pikachu, then started a game on Lets Go Eevee, delivered Oak's parcel to unlock the functionality to communicate with the Pokeball Plus, however was told "This Pokeball Plus doesn't contain any Pokemon presents." I then went back to Lets Go Pikachu on and put Mew on the Pokeball Plus to go for a walk, then tried again to receive him on Lets Go Eevee, however was told the Pokeball Plus doesn't contain any presents. You also can't return a Pokemon from a walk on a different game, otherwise you get told someone else Pokemon is on the ball and the results from the walk will be deleted. Screenshots below of when i received my Mew: This appears when the Pokeball Plus is connected for the first time: The receiving Mew process: Message that is displayed when trying to obtain a Mew on a different game, after already receiving a Mew: Message displayed when trying to take a Pokemon from a different game for a stroll with a Pokemon already on the Pokeball Plus from a different game: If nothing else screenshots to preserve as much as this unique event as possible. It's going to be a rare thing getting an event Pokemon on a unique piece of hardware like this.
  14. With the price of that Pokeball I hope its per-per profile or per game. Hopefully my pre-orders should be waiting for me when i'm home tomorrow so I can do some testing this weekend. I'd imagine someone on the internet will probably have confirmed by then though.
  15. Congrats on the server move, i'm glad everything went smoothly. To give you some constructive feedback on the new theme, I like the header / navigation menu and general design of the theme. I know i'm in the minority here, however for me personally I do find light coloured text on a dark background incredibly hard to read. For whatever reason I struggle to focus on the text to read it, making it pretty unusable unfortunately. With that in mind I am grateful the older theme is still available as a choice, I always felt the light blue on that was a good neutral choice, not too dark, however not too light either. Don't take that personally against the new theme though
