  1. @DestroyMagnet Bulbapedia has all Gen 2 PCNY campaigns documented, which if I recall correctly was taken from the old official PCNY website which would post about the events weekly. There is a lot we do not have: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Gotta_Catch_'Em_All_event_Pokémon#Distribution_weeks For Gen 3, Bulbapedia does not have all PCNY campaigns documented, only those which we have had pk3 samples surface of. The documentation is weak and pieced together as information turns up, as I don't think the offical PCNY website recorded any from this generation.
  2. Oddly I don't see those event flags on my latest version of PKHeX (Edit: oh you have 3-14, I have 2-14), but you should still check the event constants. I remember doing this manually a few years ago, it may help you out.
  3. Yeah, that varies from person to person depending on personal perspective. If you only acknowledge legitimacy as events that come from the original distribution period, then it's understandable if these are not for everyone. Personally, for me the only reason it matters in this case is the incrementing TIDs, as these are all low number and consecutive, which we will inevitably have lots of now. Those from the original period would surface online with random TIDs and show their place in history, even though we know of instances the machines were reset during some campaigns during the orig
  4. One of the Slot A memory cards we obtained had a date range (3 Jan 2003 - 30 Jan 2003) written on the label that corresponds with the following four Gen 2 campaigns: When data is deleted from a memory card, it still remains hidden in the raw data until it is overwritten by new save data. That is the ONLY reason @Gridelin was able to recover Evolution Stone, Monster Week 1, and the Gen 2 campaigns from one of the other Slot A memory cards. Unfortunately for the memory card the original owner's ex gf overwrote, the save data for Phantasy Star was large enough to completely wipe over the
  5. Naturally any time we upload pokemon here they will be downloaded and used by a lot of people, so it's not an issue to us. If it's not an issue for you personally, feel free to upload them!
  6. The "Mew Machines" distribute identical Mews, only with the TID's incrementing from 00001 with each Mew distributed. We always welcome more Gen 1 and Gen 2 event pokemon here, so it will definitely be appreciated if you can share them.
  7. The main post answers all of your questions, but if English is not your native language I can understand if there is confusion. I will try to clarify. These pokemon are legitimate, not hacks made in PKHeX. The photo was provided for that reason to provide proof. That photo is of one of the original machines used to distribute at the Pokemon Center New York. The machine recently showed up, and now ProjectPokemon owns it and is able to distribute these old pokemon with it. Let me know if you still need any clarification.
  8. I think @Sabresite was either saying or just assuming that Campaign 2 is the Pokemon Box Promo, but he can clarify. Yes, all Gen 2 PCNY egg distributions have special moves. Not the legendaries. These particular Gen 3 pokemon here don't have special moves, and most others don't, but there were Wish Egg distributions for Gen 3 at PCNY. The Wish Eggs were a distributed from a GBA devcart by sending a wondercard via link cable, like the Aurora Ticket. We may hopefully see that software surface sometime.
  9. I figured I should also make this note before anyone asks, about why the Johto Legend campaign has TID 00061. Well my save corrupted when I distributed TID 00050, so I had to restore my last backup from after TID 00049. It took me too much time to start over at that point over one little hiccup, so I went up to TID 00061 so 60 pokemon from the campaign were still provided. What we can learn from this is to reference what @Gold Ursaring said here, and assume it is arguably indeed true about the machine itself, and not kids pulling carts out at the wrong time causing the corruption.
  10. If you'd like to ship me your cartridge to dump for you, you can send me a private message. I'm willing to help. If you'd rather me send you the dumper I understand, though I'm actively using for the time being, so it'd be quickest with the former option. For credibility, I've done this before:
  11. I don't have any familiarity with Home, ithough f if it's anything like Pokebank when it first went online I assume the hack checks are a ludicrous mess. Bad hacks may easily go through, legit stuff may be a no go. Regardless, these are 100% legitimate pokemon events, so in theory they should go through with now problem. Does not matter what PKHeX says.
  12. PKHeX does not have most older events properly documented, so you will often see older events marked as illegal even though they are not.
  13. @theSLAYER I mentioned in the second paragraph that Gen 2 will be ideally uploaded in a few days, as it is still being filled up with pokemon. My limited free time, and the need to zero out the Gen 2 software's unique "one-pokemon-per-campaign" date flag in the save's hex between each distribution, all makes it take a bit of time. The reason I uploaded the Gen 3 saves now instead of waiting until I also had the Gen 2 save is because this link is needed before Saturday morning to go along with some further public documentation. Ideally I'll have the Gen 2 save uploaded by or on Saturday, but no

    This page contains several savefiles dumped from cartridges that were distributed a plethora of event pokemon directly from the Pokemon Center New York PCNY distribution hardware that recently surfaced. Hopefully it provides enough public satisfaction for everyone, while the preservation team undertakes this grand and lengthy task of hopefully enabling the software to become usable via emulation, as well as hopefully producing hardware mods for a publicly feasible physical method of distributing. This is our most major project by a long shot and will likely take quite some time, however now th
  15. I just wanted to post this here. We have a new theoretical idea how these Mew/Celebi machines worked. In several posts I've made during the past years I've said it was probably a devcart inside a SGB2/SFC linked to a GBP. This was based on the fact you can see the SFC controller in photos, as well as a cartridge slot that looks like a GBP. Upon discovering the PCNY machine, our theory has changed. Partly, but not limited to, the fact the PCNY writer's cartridge slot has a faux-GameBoy plastic cover for that illusion. I'll leave out specific details for now, but basically the PCNY cartridge wri
  16. I am very relieved that this information is finally going public. In late 2018 and early 2019, myself, YoshiMoshi, and a couple others unnamed decided to put in full effort to dig up the proof of what ourselves and community had suspected for years in regards to the GBA distribution carts being sold on eBay. YoshiMoshi and I took upon the task of rewriting a devcart, and the two unnamed dug into the actual sales market. Well after a ton of work being more lengthy than I can even remember to detail, so much information had been compiled to prove every aspect of this dirty and manipulative marke
  17. I was just sent this link via email, amazing news important enough for me to log in again and reply. This is the most important Pokemon distribution device to surface so far! I'm still curious about these things to know when they show up, even if they're of no use to me these days. I stand by willing to help if in need, or with any sort information related. Glad to see extraordinary finds are indeed not yet over and passed! Keep us updated.
  18. I have one more semi-related cartridge label in need of translation:
  19. What's it say in the box above 64Kbit? I didn't see that text on the other carts.
  20. I'm going to ask a very similar translation request here since it doesn't warrant a new thread. Just want to know what all the Japanese text is saying: Edit: It looks nearly identical to the text on YoshiMoshi's cart, with only unique text in the box above 64Kbit.
  21. I've had an account there since September 2016 and don't recall any trouble setting it up... maybe its some kind of new feature? Also, yes I do use my Gmail when making forum accounts.
  22. Likelihood any of these savefiles are all long dead. Gen II events that aren't in Stadium, or already privately dumped, are lost for good. I think if someone on this forum had one they'd be willing to contribute, they would have come forward already.
  23. I always figure the main reason most people used the Stadium storage system was to back up their pokemon to start a new game without loosing them. Some may have been transferred back, some not. That's what you'll usually see in storage, tons of random pokemon. I figure some Celebis went through this process. Like you said, some people probably know what they have. Though when they no longer care, the cart will end up somewhere with a new owner, by internet or locally, whether we find it or not. I'm sure there's some out there. It's a very hard goal, but dedication usually pays off. At lea
