  1. I've never tried this website, but I've had problems with my personal email domain before on some websites. If you're not using something like a gmail or an outlook, it might be worth a shot to try one of those.
  2. There's a pastebin somewhere on these forums or the Pokemon RNG subreddit of every possible legal WISHMKR Jirachi. I don't remember off hand if any of them are perfect IV and modest, but my gut is telling me no.
  3. This sounds like WISHMKR Jirachi and not Channel
  4. I also feel like I've definitely read through a guide on a Japanese website doing this on retail, as well as an older Japanese video about doing it on retail.
  5. Do you have a source on that?
  6. ミロカロス ・ カイリュー ボーマンダ 専用カード The Black box looks like it says this? I'm not sure what it translates to, as the google one doesn't make much sense. But it's probably something along the lines of "distribution use only" Edit: Is it the names of the Pokemon that are distributed in Japanese?
  7. Some people on here already know, but I have been sporadically buying Japanese Gen 3 cartridges over the past year or so trying to find rare event Pokemon. I've actually jokingly called this "Hay in the needlestack." I've found a few interesting things, but nothing really major. One thing that I have found consistently is all 5/5 of the Japanese Complete-in-box (or nearly CIB) games I have bought have always had some event pokemon on them, or a wondercard from an event they attended. My theory is anyone that was willing to keep the game/box in decent condition with all of the manuals/inserts probably cared enough about the game to go out of their way to attend some events. This is obviously not ideal, as CIB versions of older pokemon games will almost always cost 2-3 times what a loose copy will run you; but it does end up coming down to the whole Quality over quantity thing. Best of luck to anyone that does try to do this, and don't forget you can always resell any cartridges that don't have what you're looking for. Don't end up with 16 Gen 3 Japanese games on hand like me
  8. Version OCTOBER 31 2018


    All of the 920+ Pokemon in this save file are legal and will pass as legit. Every pokemon that can legally be obtained as a shiny has its shiny form in the save file, the other pokemon are there in non-shiny form. 90% of the Pokemon in this save file were hatched/captured in USUM meaning that they can be used on battlespot. The first evolutions of almost all of the Pokemon will be level 1; the middle evolutions are often level 70. A majority of the final stage evolution pokemon are a smogon set. I hope this save helps some people out there. All of the complete 806 pokemon sets I could find online were either completely riddled with illegal pokemon, or all of the pokemon only knew 1 move; that is not the case with this save file. Enjoy !

  9. In the Fall of 1998 Nintendo Power held a contest to “Win Mew for your Pokémon collection!” 151 winners of this contest would be given the chance to mail their cartridge into the Nintendo Power Headquarters and receive it back with a brand-new mew on their game save. Contest winners were notified by mail by 2/28/1999 that they had won the contest, making this the earliest known Mew distribution in the west. Recently while browsing reddit, I ran across a post from Th4tGuyUKn0 showcasing his Original Red cartridge that was one of the lucky recipients of this contest. After scrolling through the thread, Th4tGuyUKn0 stated that the battery on the game had not yet dried out; upon reading this I immediately messaged him explaining Project Pokémon and asked him if he would be interested in dumping his game save. Luckily, he was all for it! The only problem was he could not remember which of his five Pokémon cartridges he left the mew on, and did not want to risk draining the more than two decades old cartridge battery by checking. Th4tGuyUKn0 graciously decided to send me all of his cartridges so that I could backup the saves and hopefully find the mew. With the amazing research done by @suloku on these save files, we are confident that we have found the Mew in question. In the Pokemon Blue game save we discovered a Mew with the TID 51273 (the same Mew ID# printed on the back of the cartridge) and the OT ‘MARIO’. Suloku has concluded that this Mew is definitely legit. It shares the exact same DVs as the YOSHIBA Mew, matches Mew machine distributions data-wise, and has the same OT Nintendo character naming convention that several forum posts from 2000~ reference. While this does raise questions about what distribution the supposed ‘NINTEN’ Mews are a part of, this Nintendo Power Mew is most certainly legit. Suloku was also able to find the Mew in the red save file as a deleted Pokémon (moved or deleted pokémon can be found in box savedata if it was not overwritten by another pokémon being stored in the same slot). Attached is the the .pk1 of the 1998 Nintendo Power 'MARIO' Mew. Thanks very much again to Th4tGuyUKn0 for sending and trusting us with these cartridges and Suloku for all of the great research, none of this would have been possible without them. Happy holidays and enjoy! 151 - MEW - C23C.pk1
  10. I may be mistaken, but I thought I remembered hearing the space world demo was leaked by a store/seller in Japan that did it in part to prove that they had very rare Pokemon/Nintendo items; so I'm hopeful that some of these distribution devices are still out there!
  11. That SpaceWorld Mew would be incredible, but I can relate all too well to that struggle. I've been in contact with another redditor that had an Australian Cart with an event Mew, but they haven't gotten back to me in a while. I really enjoy preserving all Pokemon/Video Game related history, it's how I got involved in the redump project
  12. Everything is legal, so if anything doesn't work in an online battle it would be due to the rules of the online battle. For example VGC format not allowing Pokemon like Mew and Jirachi.
  13. Updated the save for a few minor fixes. New version has been released 10/31
  14. Hey everyone, just for starters since I figure most of you don't know me, I've been floating around these forums for years lurking on a lot of the Gen3 event progress that's been made. Last July on @InsaneNutter's site I even found the "Interactive Multi Media Game Disc" that would later be discovered to have the files for JPN Berry Glitch Zigzagoon. Just so you guys know that I'm not a complete noob to some of this haha :). Anyways, ever since I found out about the Meteor Jirachi successfully being retrieved and JPN Berry Glitch ZZ being found hidden in the game files of the demo disc, my interest was peaked to try and find more hidden files within some of the older GC discs. Looking through redump.org I stumbled upon this dump from last November. It is "Pokémon Colosseum: Kakuchou Disc" and is a version of the Japanese AGETO Celebi bonus disc with a playable demo of Pokemon Channel instead of the various video previews. The MD5 hash of the "pokocolo_ex.tgc" files is the same for both the regular bonus disc and the Kakuchou Disc. -[Snip]- Here is a quick video of the disc: Within the "pch_TRIAL.tgc" file there are a number of .bin files that seem to resemble the Meteor Jirachi.bin (in file size) at first glance, but the headers do not exist/match that of the Jirachi files. I believe further research is needed on this though, as I'm mostly positive these .bin files are not in the full release of the actual Pokemon Channel game. Here is a download link to all of the .bins within the pch_TRIAL.tgc > thumbcode. Hopefully someone can help in figuring out what it is these files are, all I recognize is the Pokemon names before the .bin. On another note I have been exploring the pokecolo_ex.tgc files and have been trying to distribute the coupon.bin and pkjb_test.bin file using @Lycp01's method to distribute Meteor Jirachi. I've tried altering the headers/footers and have so far managed to get the distribution process to seemingly begin before the GBA goes to a gray screen and hangs, while the distribution ISO gives the yellow error, and I again believe more research is needed into this haha. I hope this post was interesting or helpful in someway, any feedback or contributing research would be greatly appreciated. Even if all of the .bin files turn out to be duds, I'd at least like to confirm it to put my mind at rest!
  15. I know I've checked in the past, but I can't remember right now and can't check here at work; is the ROM image on the Box.iso any different from the regular ROM image? Like do the hashes match etc...?
  16. Yes, I believe you can play with a regular GC controller as well though.
  17. This was my understanding as well, just didn't know if the Wii had a RTC similar to the GameCube or not.
  18. Yes haha, I've had it since I was a kid. Would playing it on a Wii matter at all? Can you even play it on a Wii?
  19. I have a full Pokemon Box setup, I just need to find the time to do this, but shouldn't be too hard haha
  20. Thank you very much, I was able to fix all of the problems because of this! Just released the newest version of the save!
  21. I know right haha?? Back in my day we had to play our Pokemon games. And to answer your question OP, yes everything will be "legitimate." If you're worried about the TID/SID combo you can use a combination from an older/previous save file you have.
  22. @Kaphotics Would you mind checking out the main115 file of this? I haven't followed PkHex much the last couple of months, but apparently since the last update a lot of the pre-Gen7 pokemon in this save became illegal. If you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.
  23. This might be a little crazy, but have we ever tried posting something on craigslist or something similar in Manhattan to try and get in contact with an ex-employee that might have worked there?
  24. Try using VBA, launch the Japanese ROM and then load the English save battery file. Then save the game, and try and inject that save file.
