  1. As Deoxyz said we always welcome more preservation, even if gen 1 mews all had the same DVs.

    If you don't have the hardware to dump we can provide info on dumping devices if you are willing to adquire one, or maybe you'd be interested to send your cart over to someone to dump it for you and then return it.

  2. I've been running some tests and I did find out stadium 2 does not store the full pokémon name, either when boxing or when registering. I've updated the first post with this information.

    It seems Stadium 2 never actually stores the "full" name of the pokémon. The name is stored only until a 0x50 terminator is found. This makes depositing the pokémon in stadium 2 become "nicknamed". This doesn't make any actual different, but on the GBC games this wouldn't happen as the game seems to keep copying the bytes 0x50 bytes. Because pokémon data in boxes in the GB games isn't actually erased but rather the box slot is marked as "empty" when you withdraw/release/move pokémon, there is a chance that when you return the pokémon to GB the pokémon will become unnicknamed again, depending on the pokémon that was stored in that slot before. If one would like to return the pokémon to the "unnicknamed status", the easiest would be to have an unnicknamed evolved or wild muk stored in the box (because it's the shortest pokémon name and all chars besides the first 3 will be 0x50). Then put a pokémon from stadium 2 into that box in the same slot muk was. This is easiest done in a box with 19 pokemon, deposit muk in GB, withdraw, then deposit pokémon from stadium 2 into that box.
    This doesn't happen with OT name, it is fully copied. I suspect this is done so only full OT name + ID can nicnkame a pokémon (the pokémon being marked as nicknamed or not is irrelevant).
    Thus, this finding makes any registered pokémon recovered with the dumper be actually the same one you had back in your day.

    Also, friendship is reset, as if the pokémon was traded.

  3. Just seen both videos. I actually saw this thread last week but I thought it was for gen 3 only...and I've just now realized it also harvored long lost gen 2 content.

    As axpj said, a dream come true. Confirmation of shiny celebi, DV being randomly generated with shiny probability being separated, and even knowing shiny mew was actually available and the only known gen 2 mew distribution!

    Really amazing job, thank you very much, I've been years puzzled by those questions.


    Edit: I was just thinking...IF DVs are randomly generated when the pokemon is already set to not be a guaranteed shiny, there's still the chance of it being shiny?

    Also, I think this was already confirmed, but all possible shiny dv combinations can be obtained for a guaranteed shiny right?

  4. I'd suggest removing all other "fake" pkm files of this mew, to avoid confusion.

    The one posted above contains the full data found in the savegame. Even though corrupt, the mew data was intact and I can confirm it matches a mew machine distribution.

    The mew has been in gold/stadium 2, so it doesn't hold the item anymore.

  5. Thanks for your reply!

    I see some conflicting ones there: I don't have darumaka with zen mode, but I have it refistered. Maybe it was registered in my gen 6/7 national dex in bank.

    For furfrow, I did have to add the trims to gen 7, then transfer from bank.

    Still puzzled anout the 1346/7 entries in seitch version. Adding the 91 male/female versions to the 1250 list from mobile  adds up to 1341...which forms is switch counting and mobile not?


    Edit: joe merrick uploaded a living form dex, I think it misses male/female though: 

    hoopa unbound is able to be HOMEd too


  6. Hello, I'm a little cobfused about how HOME manages the form dex, and it beung different in movile and switch doesn't help.


    Switch national dex view lists 1346 entries total (i think with original color magearna that is 1347).

    Mobile view lists 1250 entries.

    Why? I think it might be male/female gender differences being counted as forms in switch version and not in mobile.

    In any case, if anyone has a checklist of pokemon forms that can actually be stored in bank/home it would really be helpful. The only ones I haven't really bothered are male/female, but I might be missing more.

    Also, can I trust mobile for the not bankable/homeable forms that I just need to register or does HOME miss any obscure form (besises spiky eared pichu and pikachu libre)


    Thank you

    Is it this?

    It is, I searched and edites my previous post, seems you did the same thing while I was editing it :D

    The flag for WISHMKR Jirachi on the savefile: Block 0x04, offset 0x2B1. 0x00 = not received; 0x01 = received. I don't remember if the flag is shared with channel Jirachi...I recall that being the case, but I'm not really sure right now.

    It can certainly be easily added to pkhex, but my laptop died two weeks ago and don't have a working setup to make a pull request right now.

    ps: if you are trying to get the shiny ones there are only 9, there's a rng thread on reddit very informative on that topic, and you can find more info readding the thread where Inposted the peogram

  8. Also, the european celebi tour used the same truck across all countries, so the celebi are the same for all europe. I supose they used the proper language version of stadium 2 on the tournament, I've asked cloud_strife8 about the language of the CTOUR celebi cartridge. I recall a person from germany I contacted tellong me his was a german one, so I guess they prepared the carts with the language of the country the tour was in.

    I'll post a translation of the letter later this afternoon, it's quite interesting.

  9. Hello everyone, today I bring you yet another Gen I Mew contribution, this time thanks to Vezokair who was kind enough to share the Mew with all of us.

    A month ago TotalTS contacted me about this reddit post where Vezokair was asking for help to determine if the Pokémon Red cartridge she just bought contained a legit Mew on it, as there was a distribution in Finland and the OT and TID matched the known data about the distribution. She posted this image, but the mew is not fully stat (EV) trained so DV (or IV) data couldn't be accurately calculated and know if it had the known fixed DVs gen I mews had.


    I contacted Vezokair and talked about the possibilty of dumping the savegame and preserving the mew, and she was willing to help, so after exposing several backup options she decided to acquire a backup device and a couple days ago I was sent the dumped savefile. She also told me the savefile seems to have been glitched in some way and that there are multiple mews on it, but after analizing the data of the mews and comparing the data with other known legit distributions we have these were my conclusions:

    - All of the mews present in the savefile are clones of the same mew (only difference is stat experience which is normal if the mew were used after cloning).
    - The original mew (or all of them) were stored in a generation II game at some point and the held item was removed or used (bitter berry) before cloning and transfering to this cartridge.
    - All the data in the mew(s) indicate it is a legitimate mew.
    My hypothesis: original owner traded the mew to gen 2 for pokedex completion and gameplay use. At some point the mew got confused and used the bitter berry it got when traded to gen 2. Later that mew was cloned multiple times (since box cloning in gen 2 games was a really easy method) and then they were trasnfered to the pokémon Red cartridge Vezokair bought.
    This is the third european Mew were are able to collect, the fourth if we count the spanish mew (it has a bogus story and different DVs, you can read the story in it's own thread). Due to fixed DVs it is not interesting gameplay wise, but as preservation is concerned and the batteries being almost dry every single event pokémon we can get is gold.
    Best regards

    According with this post I sent you an e-mail with a little information about the "Mystic Ticket TGC World Championship 2005", I have that WC3 file and is the same information in comparation with the others "Mystic Ticket" files. some weeks ago I found the gba file for this Wonder Card, I mean the distribution cartridge as gba file.

    I've been a little away lately, I've replied to your email. It would be great if we could have access to the event wondercard to check it and the event rom would be really amazing. Even if you don't want to make the rom public, it would be really helpful if you would allow us to check all it's contents in private, specially if it is compatible with non english games and if the rom hides different versions of the wondercard or other secrets.

    Does anyone have a collection of e-Reader card trainers, as in the ect files to put into my Emerald game? Because i couldn't find any ?.


    The download file includes the officiam trainer and berry files ready to inject.

  11. If you have two 3ds and 2 games this will allow to safely get any event pokémon without nintendo being able to know you did anything.

    - Game A: that with your main savefile
    - Game B: backup save and start new game

    1.- Insert special pikachu wondercardswith pkhex into GAME B.
    2.- Receive special pikachu
    3.- Local trade to main savegame
    4.- Repeate step 1
    5.- Restore original savegame into gameB

    There's no way you'll get banned this way since nintendo can only know you traded a pokémon with someone. I guess you could probably use a single game and the pokébank, I doubt they  addded that much security checks. You could use this method and a region changed emunand to get other region event pokémon too.
