  1. If you are interested in doing the full event including picking up the GS Ball from the Pokemon Center. Here is a link that tells you the right flag to set and it's location. Then after setting it you just have to try leaving the Goldenrod Pokemon Centre and a NPC will stop you. https://tcrf.net/Pokémon_Crystal#GS_Ball_Event
  2. When you transferred the save to VBA it took saved the time your computer was set to as the newest time you played the game in the save game. Then you transferred the save back to the original cartridge that had the RTC still showing a older date, effectively time travelling into the past. The game is just waiting until the RTC catches up and passes the date and time you played it on the computer. You can easily fix this by running the homebrew RTC changer to set the cartridge to the current real date. Then after that you can transfer the save back and forth all you want with no problems.
  3. I have heard before (along time ago) that emulation can be too slow at times and end up generating the wrong Pokemon. I forget the specifics so someone else more knowledgeable would have to fill that in. But my guess is that it happened here and due to emulation errors it got a Pokemon using the wrong method. Because what you got was a method 2 generated Pokemon. Which you can check in Pokefinder.
  4. Here it is two versions one is a multiboot rom for actual GBA systems that can be sent from something like a Raspberry Pi or hacked Wii and one is a NDS flashcart version that works with slot-2 systems. https://github.com/megaboyexe/GBA_RTCRead
  5. As a bonus, as long as the RTC matches the current time you can swap back and forth between carts and emulators without future problems.
  6. I assume the time in the save was updated to the current time from your computer. You could probably use the GBA RTC changer homebrew to make the time on your cartridge the same as real time. Or adjusted enough that the time in game still looks right. If I remember right the way time works in those games is that the RTC in carts starts at a set date and time then when you put in the time of day in game it just offsets from that. So that is why it might need to be offset a little to get night and day to line up.
  7. Catch Eternatus to unlock it. That use the only way and it is a soft lock prevention to prevent you from having a full PC when you get to the forced capture part of the story.
  8. I did successfully replace the ROM by just replacing the file but when testing I could play the game but it wouldn't save. So I gave up.
  9. I do not know how to fix it, but my guess is the two instances of the emulator both tried writing to the save file at the same time which caused the problem of corrupting the data.
  10. Gen 1 and 2 do not save the ball that the Pokemon was captured in, so when transferred into gen 7 all VC Pokemon end up in the basic Pokeball.
  11. I tried googling for info on how it works and couldn't find any info. So my idea of the top of my head is that when going to play Ruby or Sapphire using box, is that it sends a multi boot rom to the GBA that checks the cartridges header to know what game it is then sends that info and the save game back to the GameCube to be played on a emulator, This would explain why it only supports those two games for playing and the others only for storage. Considering they would be the only games ready at box launch to have the roms embedded into it. Basic storage is more basic and was a standard so
  12. So I'm just curious how this happened. I'm guessing it was a bug in pk2pk which I found out after that it has some in its transfer. It just must not of updated the met level. My fault for the one time I got frustrated Sat the time waste transferring them through the official way 6 at a time. I just tested and changing the met level to 30 makes it legal. But I'm thinking since it was just a live dex filler I'll release it and get a new one. Rather then edit my save. Thanks for explaining the problem.
  13. Here is the Pokemon, note that it should be fine as I have never genned a Pokemon and just use PKHeX as a read only info tool to check IVs etc. This Pokemon should of been left unused in a livedex since gen 4 so it would of been leveled up in Diamond. In all my time Playing Pokemon only two times have I done writes using hacking software so it's easy to remember what should affect it. (One was removing a nickname on a different Pokemon and the biggest was using pk2pk to mass transfer some Pokemon into gen 5) This Pokemon was probably part of that mass transfer. I'm using the newest P
  14. I was checking some info in a gen 6 save and noticed that I have a level 30 Luxray that came from Diamond and knows the move Crunch. This is legal as Shinx learns Crunch at level 29 in Diamond and Pearl but your check is based of a different games as every other game has it at learned at level 33 at the earliest.
  15. I read how it works, and the seed to generate the Jirachi is just taken from the checksum of a section of the RS save. So it is possible on retail. A program exists that lets you take your save backed up from a cart and it will scan it and tell you what you have to do to get a shiny which the change is just a frame perfect save time. It includes a LUA script to do the save auto on a emulator but you could also basically RNG it on a real cart since it is just saving on the right frame. After the save is prepped it can be restored on a cart and get the Jirachi using retail hardware.
  16. I think everything is save files and a couple things have stk files (which I don't know what that is) I've never really inspected these things.
  17. This thread jogged my memory, back in 2007 I actually found the site and after emailing the owner he gave me links and passwords to four archives full of saves. I don't know if any of this is still missing so do any of the following filenames interest anyone.
  18. What about using bank to insert a Pokemon first then swapping it with the starter in the party.
  19. Since you are using a Mac, you don't have to bother with using a Hex editor. Use the following command from a terminal in the same directory as your file dd if="Pokemon - Emerald Version (USA, Europe).sav" of="Pokemon - Emerald Version (USA, Europe)-new.sav" bs=128k count=1
  20. I would think Deoxys would be roughly equivalent of Celebi for rarity. A mythical that can has a one exception game (OK OR/AS is technically two) with unlimited one per save capture. So just one step lower since the old events are not exclusive to Japan. It just sucks that it can't be shiny outside of old events. Are you going to include stuff like non-mainline games like Mew being permanently available in Pokemon Ranch?
  21. I guess I should start soft resetting for one, in case they ever patch this bug.
  22. I read on Twitter that if using a old save you just have to rebattle the e4 to trigger the event. You don't need a whole new save.
  23. I did get a email about the event and if you click though it to the learn more for DIalga and Palkia it lists the movesets including the fact they have slightly different movesets between SM and USUM Link to movesets https://www.pokemonlegendary.com/en-us/distributions/detail/
