Okay, so first of all: Hi y'all
Been lurking for a while but decided to create an account to see if someone could help me with this situation.
You see, I found out that the only game where Celebi is not shiny-locked is in Crystal. And so, with the help of gameshark codes, I was able to unlock the GS Ball event that was originally only released in Japan. After this, I went with the classic soft reset method to get a shiny Celebi. I did. But my joy didn't last long when I came to realize there was no "legal" way to get my precious Celebi up to my Gen7 games.
And so, I turned to PkHex, but to my dismay, it didn't support the first two gens That was back in june.
Yesterday, however, the new update went live and it included Gen2 support. I was thriving. I immediately went on to check my Crystal save file and it recognized it and I was able to check my pokémon. My lovely Celebi was there, and IT WAS MARKED AS LEGAL! Oh! The joy! The happiness!
I proceeded to save it as a .pkm file to load it onto my gen7 save file. But, when I did, it was flagged as illegal.
Why most this happen to me? Is it necessary for me to suffer in order to gain something better later on in life? (TT_TT)
Please, before commenting, keep in mind that LEGAL and LEGIT are not the same thing.
I know for sure my Celebi isn't LEGAL, since GameFreak didn't allow compatibility between Gen1&2-Gen3 onwards and didn't launch the GS Ball event anywhere else in the world and I got it on an emulator, not the actual cartridge game.
But it is LEGIT. I hunted him until I got him. I'm not the only one who has. I didn't create it on PKHex or any other editing tool.
Is there any possible known way for my cherished Celebi to be marked as legal without losing it's shininess?
