  1. A starly that hatched from an egg in Gen 7 is being flagged illegal for the ball. You can catch both Starly in the Great Marsh in Diamond and Pearl, and Starvia in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum in the Great Marsh as the daily binocular pokemon. 396 - Starly - B02A88F36653.pk7
  2. Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Announced!

    I was hoping whatever legendary pokemon they would give us would not be shiny locked... However, looking at the shiny locked pokemon, it's pretty much all mythical outside of this generation. (Sides Zygarde, who will probably keep the shiny lock since it had one in SuMo) I doubt the Tapus, UB, or Cosmog line will have their shiny lock removed. Kind of disappointing. At least ORAS gave us Reshiram and Zekrom. Ahh well... At least the trailer looked interesting.
  3. [Question]gold VC(JPN)load error

    Your save is displaying the same way on my computer. However, my save (which is on an emulator right now, as I haven't imported it to my 3DS yet) is displaying my OT just fine. No issues with the nicknames either. Converting it to the VC size, it's still displaying normal for me. A random throwaway save I did on the console has no issues either. I'll attach my throwaway save in case it helps the developer figure out what's wrong with yours: sav.dat Edit: I think it has something to do with the default name. Using "ゴールド" from the drop down menu instead of inputting one is giving me the same issue. Typing ゴールド in manually is also giving me the same issue. ゴールド OT.dat ゴールド typed in manually.dat
  4. [Gen 4] Pal Park Research

    Opps, forgot about this. First part is... bad news. The badly fake JP FR I have does not read at all anymore, so I definitely cannot do tests from JP Diamond on retail. But, for some... mildly interesting news, I found a backup of my emerald on my computer. Because of this, I was able to test a batch of the same pokemon being sent up on US Pearl retail vs being sent up on the emulator. Unfortunately, I don't know if I brought my gameshark (or whatever) with me when I moved since I could only make my ancient laptop run the program, so once I run out of pokemon that originated on that cart. That'll be it. However, I can test a variety of things that are still on the cartridge if requested. (Like specific nicknames or whatever) This batch is all not-nicknamed, but I can send up a nicknamed batch tomorrow. One thing of note though: The Pineco and one of the miltank were holding a dive ball when I sent them up on retail. I dunno if this affects the trash bytes or not, but I didn't have them hold it on the emu transfer.

  5. Help with Event pichu

    Oh right, @theSLAYER's post reminded me of something else. if you're injecting the wondercard, make sure you're doing it on the correct version too. For example the Flying and Surfing Pikachu: As you can see, XY is not listed there. That means that serial code would not have worked on those versions. For another example, the '14 pikachu cannot be on ORAS as the games were not released yet when the event happened. ((And man, I'm upset with myself now for only getting one serial code for those pikachu when the event was on-going. An alolan Raichu with surf and fly would've been awesomeeeeee))
  6. Help with Event pichu

    Those moves are not HMs. HMs are Fly, Surf, Cut, Strength, Flash, Rock Smash, Waterfall, and Dive in Hoenn Gen 3. Those moves you listed above are able to be transferred without any problems to future generations, as they aren't HMs. Up until Generation 6, there was no way to transfer pokemon with HM moves forward. (You get an error message that you must be delete the HM move) So all surfing events for the Pikachu line from.... - Gen 1 (no way to connect to Pokemon Stadium legally on the Virtual Console releases, and no way to transfer from the original catridges) - Gen 2 (see above) - Gen 3 (Cannot send to Gen 4 without deleting the HM) - Gen 4 (Cannot send to Gen 5 without deleting the HM) Are unable to know surf legally. If you want a Pikachu that has surf on Gen 6+ (there were no events for Gen 5 to my knowledge), it has to be one of the following: Legal only on Korean 3ds: Legal only on Japanese 3ds: Legal on any region 3ds:
  7. I assume you're talking about the OT problem with Mew? That is a bit more of a different problem. The programming issue was with the character they used in the OT. Something that was easily overlooked as it looked identical to the character they wanted to use. Even fanbased projects, like Pokecheck, had this problem. In my case, they used the wrong apostrophe when using their transfer system to Gen 4, which somehow Gamefreak's terrible hack checks managed to catch. It's not easy to catch a problem like this when the symbol looks the same. With shiny checks, they most definitely have perfected that now. The only case of a programming error was the Colosseum bonus disc Jirachi (and maybe the channel Jirachi?I think this being found shiny is a newer discovery), and if I recall correctly, they had lower than normal odds to be shiny. It also seems they run tests of their wondercards, so it most definitely would be caught before going live at least. That said, they could make the scrap campaign pokemon shiny. HA Shiny Mewtwo was first released this way, before it got a distribution in other countries. Shiny eevee was another one, though there is nothing unique about it. They most likely will make it so it's either always shiny (like Mewtwo or Eevee) or never shiny though. Having the shiny is a nice way to make people want to participate in the campaign though. I just hope if they do, it won't be a last one like Mewtwo again because Mewtwo would've cost me over $100 on ebay. Would be nice to have the "random" shiny wondercard chances again though. Outside of eggs (which they can't shiny lock for reals, so some they just let have the chance be shiny without needing to trade), the only one that could be shiny in Gen 6+ was a magikarp IIRC. Gen 5 at least had a few wondercards that could randomly be shiny.
  8. Crystal or Lake ball are my preferences. Though, I'd be a sucker for a full starry ball, similar to the moon ball.
  9. Invalid Word Filter Errors and more Misc Issues

    Alright, so it's just showing the bad nicknames to warn me. Gotcha. The Gen 7 stuff was transferred through bank (was it was in my living dex in Gen 6), so I guess bank doesn't wipe the OT. As for Pichu... I'm a bit confused? I'll trust you if you say it's hacked, but the error I have with it is in regards to the ball legality. Safari balls can pass from Pikachu bred in Gen 6. The only possible thing that would be illegal in Gen 6 is if it has the HA and the safari ball, and it doesn't. A quick edit in Pkhex to make it a pikachu (and changing the level), shows it as legal. It looks Pkhex isn't checking that the ball can be passed down through breeding.
  10. If I'm remembering correctly.... Yeah, they have server side verification. I can't speak for Wifi or in-life events, but for serial codes, they definitely do. If you want all the pikachu, you will need to make dummy profiles. For a personal example, I input a pikachu serial code (which was not a universal one since I was doing the Japanese event) and got a strange error message ("The gift was not there.") When I tried to claim it on another game (as I wasn't 100% positive if I could claim a second pikachu on the JP games since they were unique codes), it told me the serial code was already used. Trying it again on the first game got the redemption to work. Even though it failed the first time, the code was registered to that game. It's not a game synced game, so it's looking at the OT/TID/SID or something.
  11. I don't know if this helps, but this is a pichu I have sitting around that hatched from an egg on emerald for comparison if you give Kaph the .pkm of Raichu. 172 - PICHU - 72ACA36FD883.pk3
  12. I'm not sure *when* the Word Filter was added, but I know Gamefreak didn't wipe the names until Gen 6 for me. ((Note because these are backup saves, I can send whatever you want to Gen 6. Just ask) Gen 5: Flygon called "Sexwhore" (This Flygon lost the name upon transfer in bank on Gen 6) Ditto called "Sex Maniac" (I assume this ditto will lose the name upon transfer like the Flygon did) Ponyta called "wtfhax". (I assume it'd be renamed to default upon a pokebank transfer like the others) Rattata called "beaver". Magnemite with the OT: "アナル♪~" ( it's flagging the "Ameru" part) Combee called "TItty" (This I know would get renamed and give my character the OT Shiro since I have a pokecheck of the name being wiped back in the day.) Gen 6: This charmander with some weird word filter "^J[oo]d.* OT is Jodaan, which is the only thing I can think of. Gen 7: Solrock with the OT "Bobo" Accelgor with the OT "Mona" Misc Issues: I'm not sure if this intended or not. This Darkrai has more than the allowed EVs, and it won't let me see the legality check (which points out more issues) until I set it below 510. It takes me directly to the EV tab, so it might be? Dunno. It won't let me save the pokemon to upload it, but I *think* this is probably the .pkm based on the file name. (Which I would've ripped in the pokegen days to show off how badly it was hacked judging by the timestamp of the file) I'm not sure if this is PKHex or not, but I'm getting a few pokemon that are getting really corrupted name strings and other weird things I never saw on my previous checks. I could've just missed them if they weren't being flagged in the last version, but oh boy did they freak me out seeing them today. I've seen around 3, and they're all on Gen 5. Example: 058 - ǑŖŅśŖƫ - 1132C3C1E7AD.pk5 loldarkra.pkm 077 - wtfhax - D56A78D5F2FC.pk5 132 - Sex Maniac - DDEA091CA10D.pk5 330 - Sexwhore - 32F92379B560.pk5 338 - Solrock - CF6847266D34.pk7 617 - Accelgor - 77C1ADC0C836.pk7 Flygon renamed in Gen 7.pk7 004 - Salamèche - F70CBEE9B3AF.pk6 019 - Beaver - B6557E0FA32B.pk5 081 - コイル - F12767C33366.pk5 415 - Titty - 970B169D4A0E.pk5 Edit: More baby pokemon issues. This time it's flagging safari pichu as illegal, when pikachu can be caught in the safari zone in Gen 3. It came from wondertrade so I can't verify the legitimacy of the pokemon, but the ball type is legal.172 - ピチュー - F1532736B237.pk7
  13. It's really hard to tell just based on the picture, but nothing from generation 3 is being flagged as illegal in my PkHex in any of my backed up saves. (Emerald, Gen 4, Gen 5, Gen 6, and Gen 7) I don't think I have any net ball things from Gen 3 (aside from Colo, but that shows up fine) sitting around still, so I'll have to go play around on Emerald. Do you have specific examples aside for the net Starmie? Is it just Generation 3 games? Is it just Sapphire or all versions? (I'm assuming at least FR/LG since Dunsparce cannot be found in R/S)
  14. Bug reporting: Japanese name of Kin, Gin version (VC-JPN)

    @Logic This is if your save originated on an emulator. You might to import it into an emulator then do this to edit it to make it the right size. I'm not sure if there is a way to do it straight from pkhex.
  15. Gen2 to Gen7 Shiny Celebi

    For the event, I do not have much hopes that it will be released. While I can see them doing it as a motivation to purchase the game, I really am doubting they will given how much they seem to want to do shiny locks at the moment along with... other complications. It was distributed through the Pokémon Mobile System GB. From what I know of the patches, it looks like they are removing it (or at the very least, scrubbing images related to it) in the Japanese patch. I'm honestly not sure if they can even distribute the GS ball through the Mystery Gift option. If they can, it'll most likely be another real life event like the VC Mew. So, if they do have the event, it'll be "legal" if the event is in your language your Celebi is on. If not, it'll continue to be illegal, just like English shiny Mew from Emerald is illegal as the event was never released outside of Japan. As theSLAYER stated, that's pretty much why I used "Legal" rather than "Legitimate" when referring to re-obtaining my old TID. There's no known ways to RNG abuse in Gen 2 right now, so you have to either hack or soft reset. I chose to brute force it with a LUA script to soft reset for me. Your TID can range from 0 to 65535, and getting exact DVs would be about the same chance (1 in 65,536). Much, much rarer than an actual shiny pokemon. So, yeah. the game is generating it instead of me altering it, but I'm taking a huge shortcut by making a program do it for me.
