  1. Thanks again for the speedy response! Yeah, I'm fine with repeatedly viewing an encounter to get what I'm looking for; that's actually what I've been doing. I was just curious if there was another way, and I couldn't find anything online about it. Thanks for clarifying! ^^
  2. I am always astonished at how frequently and quickly you reach out to help people. Thanks for your time and for creating such a wonderful tool. I though Generation III had their natures tied to the PID? I'm not sure if that's what you were referring to or not. I'm essentially trying to get a Careful Cubone from FireRed with the Lightning Rod ability. (I already achieved this by simply searching for Cubone from FireRed and viewing each entry until I found what I wanted.) However, for future endeavors, I'd appreciate knowing how to better search in the Encounter Database to find specific species with specific ability and/or nature. I don't know if that's at all possible.
  3. I'm trying to used the advanced tab in the Encounter Database in PKHex to search for Pokemon from FireRed with the Careful nature. I've read the batch editor tutorial, but for some reason, I still can't get the specified Pokemon to show up. I've tried =nature=careful, =nature=23, and the "!" and "." variations of the search. Still, it just shows the normal search results with random natures. Is there an up-to-date guide or tutorial on how to use the Encounter Database advanced tab?
  4. Thank you for pointing out that modifying the PID is considered 'significantly hacking' a Pokemon. I never participate in tournaments or online competitions (I'm not a competitive battler by any means), and I never have. 99% of the time I'm just battling my friends via local link, and when I do battle online - again - it's a friend. I'm not concerned with having an unfair advantage against them because, well, they were the ones who introduced my to PKHex when they decided to throw out a whole team of perfect shiny legends... I any event, the hand full of Pokemon I'm editing are just for sentimental reasons mostly. They are things I caught when I was a kid. I only wanted to change their natures, but its turned into a really big task. Thanks a ton for all the help! I really appreciate your speedy replies and patience with a noobie to PKHex (me). Just to reiterate, if I do nothing in the RNG software but input the correct method, encounter type, gender, and nature, I can ignore everything else? Again, my only goal is to change the natures of a few of my really old Pokemon. I just don't want to get flagged and loose all my other non-edited Pokemon that I've bred/caught throughout the years.
  5. Thank you for all the help. I'm sorry I'm not too knowledgeable about these things. I've browsed through the guide, and I get about 80% of it. To get my Pokemon to 'legal' status, I'm simply entering in the correct encounter method and encounter slot as well as the nature and gender. I am not entering in anything else. That also means that I am not entering the ID and SID for each Pokemon. Once I generate a list of PIDs I am simply selecting one and entering it in PKHex. After that, I am changing the IVs to match the PID. PKHex is now reporting the Pokemon as legal. Am I doing this right? I have checked, double-checked, and triple-checked the guide, but it's a bit much to take in all at once. I don't use PKHex for anything but changing the natures of my old gen 3 and 4 Pokemon. (Nowadays, it's so easy to get good natures and IVs, I just breed what I want in the current gens). Anyway, my question is essentially, once generating a 'legal' Pokemon in PKHex using the procedure described, am I at risk of my Pokemon being detected as altered or illegal? I really don't want to lose these Pokemon I caught as a kid, and I don't want to get blocked from Wi-Fi battles because I modified their natures.
  6. Thank you so much for replying to me. I transferred up a lot of Pokemon that I had caught forever ago (10+ years ago). I edited their natures, but not their IVs. I did re-roll their PID and encryption constants. These Pokemon mean a lot to me, so I was wondering if there was a way I could fix this problem? Additionally, is there a way to edit the nature and abilities of Pokemon from 3/4th gen and not have to re-roll the PID and encryption constant? Again, thanks a lot for helping me out. I really don't want to lose any of my old 'mons. ^^
  7. I've been using PKHex for awhile now. I used the program to change the nature, level, and moves of my Pokemon that I transferred up from previous games. I also used it to Hyper Train some of my Pokemon. After I made the changes, I ensured that the PID and encryption constant were both re-rolled after the changes. In all previous versions of PKHex, the Pokemon were reported as legal. I updated PKHex to the newest version today, and suddenly swabs of my Pokemon are reported as illegal. I chose five Pokemon .PKM files that I believe are fairly representative of the types of problems I am seeing in my Pokemon. I really hope someone can help me figure out why they are showing up as illegal and how I can fix it.
