  1. Hi guys, I own myself a Retrode 2 but unfortunately, the GBX plugin was not available anymore. Since more than a week ago, they are back in stock and I have ordered and received one unit. Result is great ! I tested on Win 7, everything is plug and play. The cartridge content appears as an ordinary mass drive. I can just copy the rom and sav to my computer. I tried to edit the save with Pikasav. I worked. I just had to select "forced sav". Hope this might be interesting for some of you. https://www.dragonbox.de/en/71-retrode-2-retrode-4260416650091.html https://www.dragonbox.de/en/135-retrode2-gbx-plugin-retrode.html I'll then sell my Mega Memory Card and my Game Boy usb 64m smart card.:-)

    Snorlax Moveset

    Ha yes I know pickup but did not know it allows you to find that TM ! However I saw it's also available against Battle Points. Yesterday I got old amber and soft resetted till I have a Jolly Aerodactyl. I'll also train it. I've also spend some time to get Power Item to increase Sp Att. So I can easily start EV train my Gastly.

    Snorlax Moveset

    Indeed, a Choice item might be considered. But look, I'm facing one Pokemon and triggers a move. The guy then directly changes to e.g a Psy. Then I'm stucked with first move and cannot use the U-turn against him. So still need to think. Another I'll think about is Omastar. Just got some Helix fossils. :-) You mean when you reach level 100 you get some TM ? Indeed, I'm from Europe. Belgium to be exact.

    Snorlax Moveset

    I did not know this ability. So indeed it's dangerous. Also for him if he faces one having a capacity like Fissure, ... Indeed Energy Ball seems so great because of power, accuracy, STAB and the fact it's a special attack. So I think I've my moveset defined for Exeggutor. Sleeping Powder Leech Seed Psyko Energy Ball / Leafstorm Thanks for those advises. ;-)

    Snorlax Moveset

    Hi, Thanks a lot for the time you took to answer. First, I want to come back on : Dynamicpunch is only 50% accurate. How do you make it 100% ? For sure one of my friend will use Scizor and at least another one will use Steelix. That' sur why for my Snorlax I wanted Fire Punch. Also to address Heracross which might be sent against my Snorlax. For my Primeape, I planned to give him : Expert Belt U-turn (to escape from Psy's and still inflicting damages) Ice Punch (for birds) Close combat : power, accuracy, STAB Earthquake (if not alteady used) / tunnel For my Exeggutor, I was thinking of : Leech Seed Psyko : accuracy + STAB + power Giga Drain : STAB + heal Explosion : suicide move I really want to leep leech seed. I was thinking of replacing Explosion by Toxik but it means 2 turns to set the strategy and knowing Exeggutor low speed, it might not survive 3 hits. For the Dugtrio I'll read more about what you proposed. I did not know this strategy. Other option is maybe to replace Explosion by Sleep Powder and start with that before Leech Seed. But sleeping powder is only 70% accurate. So it's still a risky plan.

    Snorlax Moveset

    About Articuno, indeed if I use it, it'd be for late game only. Some of my friends have pretty good level, other mediocre. Myself, I'm learning about competitive play. So I read a lot. The thing is that I'd like to try to win with Pokemon I like the most. Hence Ditto. The good thing is that mine has the item which doubles its speed. But my main plan (in that case it's more in 6vs6 battles) would be to use it just after a strong battle where my Pokemon just fainted and the opponent is still there with low HP and preferably a status change. This would be the use case if I use it. I did not know the mechanics of this move (Payback). I'll read about it. FYI, I stopped after Gen II and just restarted with Hearthgold 'cause I liked the original game.

    Snorlax Moveset

    Many thanks for this detailed answer. As said, I plan to use this Snorlax as a Sp. absorber. Sleep Talk, I hesitated but I don't like the fact it'll miss 1/3 of the time or 2/3 against ghosts. Recycle would be used only in case of necessity. I hope to not have to rest more than 1 time. But what I like with Recycle, Rest and Chesto is that my opponents might use a lot of PP of their powerful attacks. Imagine then if Snorlax could have the "Pressure" ability. :-) Also, it'd be too nice for a Gengar with Dream Eater to face a sleeping Snorlax. Indeed I'm vulnerable against something like Rhydon / Golem / ... A strong physical and accurate water attack would be really nice. Too bad Surf is a special attack. One of my friend uses Gengar for sure. And Earthquake will not touch it since it levitates. Against Fighting types, I'll be hard also. So after all this thinking I understand better your point of getting rid of Recycle to increase coverage with another strong physical attack move. I'll check the alternatives to Earthquake and then decide if I make it more versatile or if I keep it as a PP Sp. Attacks absorber because for sure he won't win the game alone. So maybe better to keep it for its purpose and build a team around him to cover each other. About facing a Gengar, the risk would be my friends giving him the strong Fighting Special Attack (don't remember the name). But it shall not OHKO me I think giving Snorlax huge HP and Sp Def and the fact that this attack will not be stabbed. I've not said it but we'll be mostly playing singles standard (3 vs 3) "flat" battles. The other I'll train for sure those battles are : - Exeggutor - Gengar - Ditto - Primeape - Aerodactyl - Dugtrio The ones I might train after : - Moltres - Articuno (mind reader + sheer cold) - Dodrio : just because my Duduo is (except Gyarados) the only Shiny I caught - Electrode I'll just take Pokemon I like. I think with this list I can make some combinations of 3 Pokemons teams. Thanks again !
  8. Hi, I just have caught Snorlax. It has Sassy nature which decreases speed and increases Sp. Def. I want to use it to play against my friends. I'm thinking of this moveset : - Rest - Body slam - Crunch or Fire Punch - Recycle Item would be Chesto Berry. EV HP : 140 EV Sp Def : 252 EV Att : 116 Rest + Chesto + Recycle = no comment needed Body Slam : high accuracy, STAB, 30% chance paralysis Between Fire Punch and Crunch, it's hard to decide. As I want to make it a Sp Sponge, Crunch would be ideal for Sp sweepers like Gengar or Alakazam. But this Snorlax would be weak against Steel. On the other hand, Fire Punch could also be good against Gengar. Snorlax has high physical attack and Gengar low physical defense. Alakazam can still be hit with Body Slam. So my preference would be to use Fire Punch over Crunch. Does this set make sense ?
  9. Hi, I restarted playing HeartGold. Bad habit from Gen 1 and 2, I named myself in the game GOLD with caps and my rival SILVER with caps. I know it's possible to rename the hero's name using PokeGen as well as DO name of all the beasts I caught. I would like to keep those names but with only the first letter as cap. My first question is : Is it also possible to rename rival caracter ? Second question : If I change OT Name of all the Pokemons I got, would their curent PID still be valid ? E.g. nature has impact on PID. I guess OT Name doesn't since PokeGen let you edit this field but I wanted to be sure.
  10. Hi, Yellow was released after R/B. I'll try to find some time next week to do the test on my Yellow and Red games.
  11. Hi, Try to export save before editing it in PokeGen. Then use the import feature. It shall do the trick. Make sure save type is set on "auto".
  12. I don't know if I'll invest myself in newer gen's. For now I'm playing Heartgold and I'm finishing to make my team level 50 to beat E4 and reach Kanto. In the meantime I'm already preparing my team I'll use to battle my friends. I'm relunctant to start Moon / Sun because it would mean invest on a 3DS. I'll see by the time if 3DS prices are decreasing. Also I'd go for a 2DS but the fact we can't close it stops me from buying it. Q? : is the 3DS zone free ? If so, I might buy one when I go to Australia in few months. I think I'll rather play Leafgreen.
  13. I'll do the test for red / blue - yellow. I did not know that in Yellow they anticipated GSC games. Thanks for the info. I saw something similar about Mew's fix IV to prevent its Shinyness when transferred to GSC but I was sceptical.
  14. I had the exact same feeling. However, my favorite gen is the first. Probably just because it's the first I played (blue cartridge). After 2nd Gen, I stopped playing Pokémon. And restarted few weeks ago with some friends on Heartgold / Soulsilver.
  15. In the meantime, I found a Timid Gastly with IV AttS 27, IV Speed 30 and all others 20+. It's cool to have an Abra with Sync. :-)
  16. Hi, With friends, we restarted those games and eventually battle. We play fair and decided to not cheat. Even if we have what is required to edit a save, we only allow ourselfves to : - load event pkmns - view IV In my team I wanted a Gengar. I found one (not evoluted yet) with IVs : AttS : 21 Speed : 31 DefS : 31 HP : 24 Att and Def don't remember but shall be between 20-30. It has levitate and his nature is Quiet. For now it has as EV : AttS 30 and Speed 125. First, for Gen IV (no easy to get perfect IV), is this a decent one for a Special Sweeper ? For items I hesitate between : - Choice Scarf - Focus Sash If I go for Choice Scarf, I guess I don't need to full his speed EV's. According to you what would be a good value ? I'm thinking of sth like 172 (taking into account its nature). I'd max his AttS EVs. Last 86 EV I hesitate between HP or Sp Def. If I use focus sash then 252 AttS and Speed. For the moves, I'm thinking of : - Shadow Ball - Slug Bomb --> For STAB. 2 others I don't know... - Giga Drain - Destiny Pound (if focus sash) - Psyko - Thunder - An Ice Move (if any available?) Any other Idea ? Thanks for your help.
  17. Indeed I meant Yellow's (or even better : Red's) beast to be correct. Although Ash is also one of the suggested names at game start.
  18. Hi, I observed that Ash's Pikachu has a catch rate of 163 (as opposed to 190 as any other Pikachu). One of the noticeable difference is that when traded to GSC it holds a light ball. But since GSC was not out when Yellow was, I don't think it's the reason why it has a different catch rate. My assumption is that this different and unique catch rate is used to identify the starter Pikachu (combinaison OT/Name - OT/ID - Catch Rate). I read that if you trade Pikachu to R/B and then directly trade it back to Yellow, it won't follow you anymore. Even if OT/Name and ID match. Maybe because catch rate is altered during transfer ? I don't know if it's true but I read that if you trade it to GSC and trade it back, if you have kept the light ball on it, it'll still follow you and if you remove it, it will not follow you anymore. So it seems only RB are resetting catch rate during transfers. In game it's not possible, but I'd curious to see how game behave in case you have 2 Pikachu with catch rate 163 and same OT/Name and ID. If someone has more info, I'd be interested.
  19. Thanks a lot, will check this. Biggest challenge in my project will be to find a Retrode GBx Plugin (Adapter).
  20. At startup, I'll give the possibility to choose OT and hardcode some forbidden ones (e.g. PCNYa, ...). ID startiing at 60k is also fine. I'll take those requests into consideration. Do you have the disassembly ? So that I can have a look at generation algo's ?
  21. Hi, I'm looking for a PDF (or any printable format) containing Pokedex data for Gen 1 and 2. For each entry, I would like to have the attacks (and level when learnt), breeding info, attacks learnt by trainer and breeding, zone where can be found, ... On short something like this http://www.serebii.net/pokedex/ But in offline and printable format. Does such a file exist ?
  22. So what we can assume as a starting point for the Gotta Catch'Em All replica machine : Eggs : - Will receive OT and ID of the player - Will generate genes randomly with shiny locking 7/8 of the time - Will fix shiny genes 1/8 of the time and attack gene will be picked-up randomly amongst 2, 3, 6, 7, A, B, E, F Legendary and evoluted forms : - OT name will be PCNY plus suffix - ID will be sequential - If not shiny locked, will generate genes randomly amongst shiny locked combinaisons 7/8 of the time - If not shiny locked, will generate shiny genes with attack genes generated randomly amongst possible shiny attack genes 1/8 of the time - If shiny locked, will generate random genes amongst shiny locked ones Mew : - With Gen 1 fixed genes Note: according to bulbapedia Celebi would be in the 1/8 to be Shiny. Mew is not. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Gotta_Catch_%27Em_All_event_Pok%C3%A9mon#Celebi
  23. I'm not sure at all for the possibility of the Red Gyarados to be a female. I checked on the Internet and it seems that people are saying it's fixed to 15. http://upcarchive.playker.info/0/upokecenter/content/pokemon-gold-version-silver-version-and-crystal-version-diversification-values.html So it really seems to be fixed. Since you did a few test, I think we can assume it's attack gene is 15 (F). What will be difficult to figure out is : How 12,5% is processed. Based on which factors? Just random ? When shinny, how attack DV is set ? For non shiny ones, how DV's are calculated ? Random with Shiny locked ? Would make sense and maybe this algorythm is the one for the ones which cannot be Shiny. Is the OT or ID a key to generate DV's ? Maybe it's a key to determine Shinyness ??
  24. It's indeed sounds fichu but this is what I can find here. What I'd like to recreate (probably based on Raspberry or a small compute stick) and Retrode + GB Plugin device is a distribution machine based on the Gotta Catch'em all distribution. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Gotta_Catch_%27Em_All_event_Pok%C3%A9mon The toughest part will be to get the generation algo's. About distribution based on cartridge (like the blue version used at Toys'Rus), had the player have to trade one of his Pokemon against Mew ? If not it means it was not an actual cartridge.
  25. Also I bought a Retrode. I've just to wait the GB Plugin is back in stock. It'll be easier to transfer .pkm files into cartridge. If you have the algorithm, I can write a program to generate the corresponding pkm files.
