  1. This was my understanding as well, just didn't know if the Wii had a RTC similar to the GameCube or not.
  2. 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?
  3. I have a full Pokemon Box setup, I just need to find the time to do this, but shouldn't be too hard haha
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. I have a similar mindset to this as far as genning goes. I see the small fee as more of a "You are paying $0.50 per pokemon so that you don't have to hack your 3DS and learn how to use all of these tools yourself" kind of thing. And you are completely right about when you make things rare/limited quantity people will be willing to pay for them, its just supply and demand. That's true, I was more getting at things like twitch streams targeted at getting kids to donate to get rare pokemon and little children begging their parents for the credit card to buy "all of the shiny pokemon" on ebay type of thing.
  8. I think you bring up a good point about how the main market of a lot of these things is children, and that the morality of that is a question in and of itself.
  9. What about paying for an extremely rare event pokemon or something of that nature?
  10. I recently got into this discussion with someone on discord and it made me wonder what the community-at-large feels about this. We started talking about the morality of selling Pokemon services on websites like reddit, twitch, ebay etc... This was mainly about selling pokemon genning/cloning services, but the discussion expanded into profiting off things like giving away pokemon on Twitch (much in the way that AuSLove does), reselling free Gamestop event codes, and even scalping Pokemon Plushes/Amiibos. Without putting any of my input into the discussion I would like to know what you all think of this. Do you think it is morally right to sell things like PokeGenning services on somewhere like reddit/ebay (with full disclosure the pokemon are hacked/cloned), or to resell free serial codes, or to profit off of a twitch stream dedicated to 'giving away' pokemon? I would love to know what you all think, thank you!
  11. You can do it yourself with a save file like this: Then open up the batch editor in PKHEX and do .Ball=16
  12. EVERYONE SHOULD BE AWARE THAT USING THIS PROCESS HAS A MODERATE TO HIGH LIKELIHOOD OF CREATING AN ILLEGAL POKEMON. DO NOT TRADE THESE ON OTHER FORUMS OR COMMUNITIES AS LEGAL. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE MENU/ANIMATION AFFECTING THE RNG, READ HERE. First and foremost, although all of these Jirachi's are "legit" and can be in theory generated and retrieved by the Pokemon Channel game; in actuality lots of them could almost certainly not be redeemed through normal RNG on retail hardware/emulators. There is an entire methodology that goes into determining whether or not a certain Jirachi spread can actually be redeemed through RNG (due to the necessity to hit things are certain frames that would be impossible to interact with on actual hardware), and even if you follow that guide to a tee, sometimes redeeming that specific spread Jirachi will just not be possible. If you want to ensure that the Jirachi you are trying to redeem could actually be retrieved on hardware, there are more in-depth guides here and here. With that said, nothing "illegal" is being created through this process; the Pokemon Channel game can, in theory, produce all of these different spread / shiny Channel Jirachis. For this process you are going to need: A developer version of Dolphin Emulator at least 5.0+ and a PAL Copy of the Pokemon Channel A version of VBA + a western Ruby/Sapphire game that can redeem the Jirachi. The ability to run this python script RNG Reporter 10.3.4 (Optional) A list of very good possible Channel Jirachi Spreads One final note before starting, the majority of the research that was done into figuring this out was done by people with much more knowledge of RNGing Channel Jirachi than I will ever have. So if you want to know most of the logic behind it, I probably cannot help you haha. All I did was figure out how to put this guide together. First off, we are going to run RNG Reporter 10.3.4 and make sure the Method is set to 'Channel.' Then you are going to choose a desired seed, and the maximum amount of frames you are willing to go up to. For this example, and to keep things simple, I picked a random seed '83213901,' set the frame counter a very small amount (5000). and clicked off the "Shiny Only" box as I want to retrieve a shiny Channel Jirachi. Now we are going to run the python script linked in the requirements. I have set the IV and thresh to 0, in order to generate every possible spread between frames 0-5000. This takes longer, and for an actual desired spread you would want to find out what threshold the Jirachi would be at, in order to generate as few results as possible. Once we've run the python script, you want to find the PID of your desired spread. Make sure that the spread matches, and then copy down the highlighted memory address of your spread. This is the important part! Next you are going to want to launch Dolphin in developer mode. In order to do that you need to launch dolphin from CMD or command line with the '-d' parameter. At this point you want to setup VBA and make sure that it is ready to connect to Dolphin. Once that is done, launch the Pokemon Channel and proceed through the standard Jirachi redemption process to this screen: Once on this screen you want to find the Memory location '8033d888' and set the value equal to whatever you address that you copied from the python script. Now you can begin the redemption process: And retrieve your desired CHANNEL Jirachi! JKSM.cia JKSM.zip
  13. Didn't they say that the core series games would be released in 2019? This is definitely a first of its kind Pokemon game, but isn't the first pokemon game of every console/handheld generally not core series?
  14. You need to look into things like generation patterns based on the initial seed/menu seed. It's one of those things that I talked about at the beginning of the guide saying that while I understand the logic behind it, I'm not in any position to really explain how it works haha.
  15. I'm not sure if you meant all languages of perfect IV shiny channel Jirachi or all languages perfect IV Jirachi and all languages of a shiny Jirachi. As you probably know a perfect IV + Shiny Channel Jirachi is not possible, but here is the closest thing in every language: Download Zip with every language retrieval of this Jirachi: jir.zip I'm not sure if I'm using a gamefaqs save, as I found a save file online years ago, but I can guarantee you I did not play through this horrible game haha. Rant begin: even just going to redeem the different language Jirachis was unnecessarily complicated. It's not enough to redeem the Jirachi to the different language game, but you also have to go into the settings of the pokemon channel game, and change the language there as well. And if you try to change the language back after the Jirachi has been distributed, it crashes the game! And then besides the technical parts of this game being horrible, who was the sick f**k that thought of the aspects of this game. The pokemon being depressed and sad when certain things happen is like watching an interactive ASPCA commercial; not to mention it is almost always raining outside in the game (seriously where is the god damn sun!), and this game was a full price at launch??? For the USA Bonus disc all you need is a pokedex retrieved on your desired cartridge, you don't even need any progress in Colosseum, and it came free with Colosseum! Pokemon Channel requires a stupid amount of in-game progress, that your savefile has beaten the elite4, and spending $50-$60 to get the disc in the first place. Don't get me wrong I miss there being types of event distributions like this now-a-days, but I'm glad now the only way to get a pokemon for an entire continent doesn't revolve around a game like this./endrant
  16. Thanks for the kind words everyone! When I get back from this work trip I plan on redeeming a bunch of shiny Channel Jirachi's and posting the .pk3s
  17. The Jirachi Wish Maker movie came out around that time in Japan. It is also around the same time that the Wishing Star Jirachi was distributed in Japan.

  19. They unfortunately stopped the service in 2015-2016 sometime. I had some friends that did a semester in Italy and probably got some of the last cartridges sent in before they ended the program. Also, somewhat related, has anyone else noticed how few demos/distro cart style things get leaked from Japan? I feel like Nintendo of Japan's culture makes leaking things of that nature almost unheard of.
  20. I haven't looked into stuff like trash bytes in well over a year, but I remember doing it in a hex editor. I would compare the Legit event Pokemon file I had and the .pk(x) file I made identically from scratch in Pkhex. To my knowledge there is no sure fire way to check trash bytes to ensure legitimacy, considering there are legitimate things that nuke trash bytes (like trading a Pokemon from FrLG to XD).
