  1. I've read in depth guides and followed them to the letter but my first Pokemon is still hacked in some aspects according to Pokecheck. This thing expires in 22 hours https://www.pokecheck.org/?pk=9957370 All seems good enough except for DW ability. I added "1" to the end of "extra trash bytes" in OT/Misc tab, that should mean it's a DW ability. And It's also telling me "Spikes" is hacked, "event only" move... It's an egg move. edit: Could someone upload a sample .pkm file that was done right? PS. I only want to make them legal to send them through Pokebank so I can breed them with legit Pokemon.
  2. Ok I get it, so they're only legit as long as I transfer them to X/Y or another game? That somewhat makes sense to me, but I'm asking basically if hacking the ***event***** that's already wired into the game, like the Enigma Stone key item, will result in a hacked Pokemon... I'd think the Pokemon is already locked in the game naturally until you unlock it with a key item like Azure Flute or Enigma Stone.
  3. I searched and found these codes for 4th and 5th gen to rebattle legendary Pokemon (including the event codes for Arceus, Mew, Celebi, etc...). http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120711054951AA86ohP you can find more if you search yourself. I know hacking two Pokemon into the game for breeding purposes creates a legit Pokemon, I used to do it and will probably CONTINUE doing this if Pokebank allows hacked Pokemon to be transferred (which I'm seeing, it does). Does this logic apply to using Action Replay device JUST to *unlock the events*, and then catch the Pokemon normally?
  4. What's the latest functioning AR that works with 3DS xl and all previous models (DSi xl, etc...) for 5th gen pokegen?
  5. Just wondering... How much longer will the period of "hack-free" Pokemon last? And how many people can hack the games currently
  6. I think you're spot on with the Lumineon example. I'm trying looking at this issue through a broader spectrum; if it weren't for the design, Pokemon would be walking stat charts and you'd always chose the strongest stats... But if they didn't have designs, Pokemon would be a game of strategy that I'm no way interested in playing. I'd rather play chess with my grandfather and build a better relationship with him through that rather than "Stat-chartmon" with people online. You can call me an asshole for that but it's the aesthetics that initially draws me to the Pokemon and helps them grow on me, while stats are almost equally as important. Again, looking at the big picture, there's only so much I can appreciate from looking at a Pokemon. To be honest, break it down, I loved Lumineon from the moment I saw it but if I can only look at it's beauty and not use it in the game, I'd rather spend time looking at some fine art or admiring the graphics of a better game. And that's just my perspective when I take everything I like about Pokemon and analyze it separately. Put design and playability together and you have a Pokemon's worth, imo. I know, Marketability is important. I don't mind because I like all Pokemon designs separately, they all have redeemable aspects even simple designs like Electrode for it's concept of being a detonating, electric-type sphere with a face. Kind of sad though, Pokemon has been a part of my life for a long time and I am so into it that I'm not even in the main flock of fans. Most people do buy the games for the story and to catch them all, I'm not sure what Satoshi had in mind when he thought up of Pokemon. Did the creators want it to be a quest to catch the creatures or was the competitive battling scene intentional? Did the competitive battling scene spring up from a simple children's game, meaning the initial intention was just that, to profit off of children? If so, each year that passes I'm distancing myself from their demographic. I don't know how much of a niche "competitive battling" is, but it seems Game Freak does acknowledge at least, that it is a part of the Pokemon franchise... They have those VGC tournaments every year. But as I said, looking at the whole egg of Pokemon and taking a look at each layer: 1.) Aren't there more enjoyable turn-based strategy games than Pokemon? The answer is opinionated but I don't think Pokemon is best game there is, especially with the work you have to put in to train Pokemon and the low amount of "viable" ones. Work vs. Reward on this one, although many people don't care about EV's/IV's and others just use hacking devices. 2.) Besides the actual concept of the game, are the designs the best thing you could be looking at right now? To me, as I tried explaining earlier, I can't enjoy a Pokemon just for it's visual appearance. This renders it useless, as I'd rather stare or enjoy doing other things.... What else is there to Pokemon? The simple desire to "Catch Em' All"? This is just the hook that got people addicted ot Pokemon, I think it's a rare occurrence that some people went from that initial desire to wanting to play Pokemon competitively. So if you're trying to say that there is value in the story and catching Pokemon, I respect that but I'm not the kind of person that plays Pokemon just to go around searching for game data to complete a Pokedex and recieve a virtual diploma. I LOVE Pokemon... I LOVE it, I mean it. I tried quitting, could not. If I'm going to be forced into only using a few "viable" Pokemon then I want to give it up entirely. Of course when X & Y came out I got back into it hoping for a new mindset. I have 300+ hours (mostly from me leaving the system on while away) on X and I'm loving it but seeing all these same Pokemon I saw last gen, only stronger and harder to shake off makes me lose hope... This is getting kind of complicated, sorry, I just am not 100% sure what draws me to Pokemon but it's definitely not the "catch em' all" gimmick nor the plot which I only find necessary so Ninentdo x GF can rehash their cash cow and profit off the large percent of people addicted to catching every Pokemon. If I ever stop enjoying the designs AND the metagame, I don't know if there's anything left in Pokemon for me. I might just start over and seek other forms of fun.
  7. Thank you for the correction. Somebody has been writing fake articles.
  8. I accidentally voted for my favorite pattern which is definitely not the colors that my area has. I think white Vivillon is the coolest but High Plains is just my favorite, easily. It has striking shades of brown and green/yellow stripes make it look like Rasta, also it's called High Planes which is rather fitting.
  9. Check to see if your Alakazam has a blue pentagon in the summary. This is a hack check, if it doesn't have it then it is hacked. If it does have it, it's at least "authentic" in the eyes of Nintendo.
  10. (please let this thread stay, or PM me so I can edit it.) This needs to be addressed:why do they keep making awesome pokemon and give them next-to-nothing, low as dirt stats? Game Freak always does this and they've now pulled it with practically every Pokemon in the Kalos region, under 5 of them are way stronger than the rest and will be seen more than anything else in wifi battles. Does anyone know someone in their group in person, seen an interview about their creation process or something? I know they don't care about tiers made by fan groups like Smogon but in Japan they play by their own tiers which are very similar to the official rules. I'm sure GF could find a way to divide it further, not just bunch good stuff like Garchomp and Heatran together with pathetic Pokemon like Corsolla and Cacturne. I'd love to use them but they're not even worth wasting Pokeballs for with the way GameFreak has their wifi battles set... And that's really the issue here. I see why they're 'weak', it's not that their stats are low... take every pokemon and average their base stats and even Maractus looks useable in comparison, but people tend to judge Pokemon's potential compared to the highest end of stats like Tyranitar, Garchomp, Lucario, Scizor, etc... Coincidentally these already strong Pokemon now have "Mega" evolutions. They care about the children but I'm sure not all children want to play with those Pokemon, when I was a little kid I liked using Pikachu against my friends team of legendary Pokemon. Perfect solution: GF should update, no fix their wifi play by making base stat based tiers, keep Pokemon with 500+ base stats out of the lower tiers. That would perfectly keep Scizor (500) and everything like it (Mega evos' etc...) away from weaker Pokemon like: Meowstic: weak pokemon- base stats add up to466 Ferrothorn: Highly used pokemon and you'd still be able to use it - base stats below 500 These are just off the top of my head, there's PLENTY of Pokemon with 500+ base stats. I suggest this because I know GF doesn't care about the existence of Smogon, this would be an uncomplicated, one-step solution that wouldn't possibly do poorly, only create a place when weaker Pokemon can battle fairly. Remember, GF has poor judgement and moves really slwoly. Only 2 generations ago we couldn't reuse TM's, if you wanted Earthquake you'd have to make a big decision on which Pokemon gets it. Only 1 generation ago, we didn't have a game where we could just turn on wifi and battle, we'd have to go on fansites like Smogon to find battles. Only the since last month have we had X & Y's improved , GF has been brainstorming for YEARS to make their games balanced. In gen 1 tehy didn't even care, you could destroy everything with Persian, Alakazam and Gengar. something like that would be a good move, not just throwing 80% of Pokemon under the bus. [The rest of this is just ranting] Game Freak knows themselves, they have secrets and private motives (some more obvious like giving the 3 gen 1 starters mega evo's to attract new and old customers) but they do look out for the portion of us that play Pokemon further than the storyline. I hope they realize that if it weren't for the wifi battles, Pokemon wouldn't even be a good game. The story, like CoD's story mode, is only there to present SOMETHING they can sell to you, the bulk of the game and the real complexities are in wifi battles. Since Smogon tiers are fictional to them, they should make an effort to fix their tiers. What I suggested earlier is perfect for their business style and demographic: a simple fix, not confusing at all, easy to implement and it would make the games much better quality. If they did that, I wouldn't be able to find anything to complain about as practically everything cruddy about Pokemon has been fixed with X & Y. If GF can do "sky battles" and "inverse battles" which probably took some good work to plan and create, are you sure they can't just add a "junior division" for '500 base stas and below' Pokemon to play on wifi? Are you opposed to the idea of GF making tiers/borderlines so their weaker Pokemon can still play in their metagame? Or do you believe that the current wifi battles are fair and don't need to make room for all Pokemon? I believe GF jsut doesn't realize what they're doing wrong yet or haven't put thought into it. it needs to be waved in front of their faces that adding official tiers will make Pokemon twice, maybe even 3 times as appealing to every fan.
  11. wow, cool I had no idea you could do this... that's awesome, I can't wait for X & Y backup-ability to be announced. This is the first Pokemon game I've gotten over 300 hours of gameplay and still not tired of, I'm awaiting this with extreme patience.
  12. One problem, it has given me the same 8 pages of Pokemon (some repeated). Is this because I don't have enough dream points? When I watched the DW.exe load, it only loaded the Pokemon i'm seeing now on the website... So I'm thinking it won't render every Pokemon until I manually earn dream points... Or maybe I should just try repeating the process to see if I get a different result. I'll update late Update: Nope, still the same to no avail. Any way to switch the Pokemon you find? I tucked in a normal type hoping to get Eevee, but I only had 200 points before applying this "hack" which isn't enough for Eevee's area. Edit: Actually, after using this I now have 1000+ dream points. I'll try again tomorrow and maybe it'll work after passing 2000 or so.
  13. I feel you, I would if I could but after my Genesect ended up with a sassy nature I just got tired of it. If I took the time to learn RNG then I'd give up cheating forever. And, save? What I do is plug the action replay in, make the codes, and manually activate the codes with the game and AR in the DS. I'm using an actual game not a ROM so I wouldn't know of a safe way to plug it into a computer.
  14. Precisely the issue. Is there a recent guide to traded event pokemon (Shaymin, Celebi...) on pokegen?
  15. I've searched for this thread and couldn't find it so delete this if you must. Hi, I have never tried making event pokemon that didn't originate from Black 2 or White 2. I'm trying to make a basic Victini but fail at making them legit pokemon. I succeed at every other attempt, even at making legit traded pokemon, it's Pokemon that can't be bred and must have "Event" checked that I have problems with. The way I check for legitimacy is by talking to the random match up girl, who won't allow hacked pokemon. I use the PID setting to make them legit, btw. I put it on 10 or 11 for "Event pokemon", still doesn't work. I mean it works but it's not legit. My AR just shows these weird colors now, I think it's broken haha. edit: Pokegen is what I use
