  1. Just used Rhydon and its worked perfectly for me. Even edited the Mew level/attacks/EVs and it kept the OT/Nick structure intact with trash bytes and all. Thanks!
  2. Okay, so if I’m reading you correctly, PKHex is inserting a 50 terminator, while PKX Delta is ignoring trash bytes completely. Is there a method for injecting a legal mew with intact trash bytes and no terminator? Maybe it’s easiest to load the untouched sav file and trade to a different 3DS then trade back?
  3. OK, I think something wonky is happening with PKHex. I went ahead and manually edited the first 50 terminator to 00 in the pk1 file. I dropped it into PKHex, then saved a fresh version, and that also has the 50 terminator. Using PKXDelta's pokemon save file, the trash bytes are different: 85 86 00 00 00 00 00 50 00 00 00 vs 85 86 50 00 00 00 00 50 89 80 82 If anyone can confirm this, I'd be grateful. I'll attach the PKXDelta pokemon save file (it has no extension). These are both Rupee's UK event Mew. UK Mew
  4. So I I was messing around with looking at the hex values and I couldn't actually reproduce this. I dropped in the original pk1 mew into PKHex, imported the .sav onto my VC Yellow. Boxed, then unboxed, saved, exported the sav, then used PKHex to save the mew to a pk1 file. I'll attach the pk1 file. Could this be a yellow specific thing, did you or HMM box/unbox on a different version? Or did I do something wrong in trying to reproduce the trash byte changes. I used an empty Box 2, if it matters. Kind of confused now, so any explanation or enlightenment would be awesome lol. Thanks! 151 - MEW - E4BE.pk1
  5. OK. I don't have the hardware right now, but if I get around to this I'll be sure to let you know.
  6. @theSLAYER Sorry, didn't mean to go off topic, and certainly wasn't trying to start a flamewar. I honestly thought it was amusing, which was the only reason I talked about it. I certainly don't mean to judge anyone - I'm here to learn. @ajxpk Ah OK. An early comment reads that the code is a peace offering to gamesharkers, which I didn't really follow. Did Gamesharked pokemon not have a terminator in the nick? Both: Got it, now I clearly understand legit vs legal. Thanks. So, in terms of legality, the next thing I would want to check is taking the TRU Mew posted earlier in the thread, putting it on a cart, then transferring it to GSC, correct? The export that off the cart and check out the data structure.
  7. @ajxpk Oh it is very much academic for me. I am actually only a Gen 1 and 2 players, for all their flaws. I never got into the other games. As a kid I was never able to go to a mew or celebi event, so had to resort to gamesharks. Amusingly, not much has changed as an adult since I can't get a legit mew either, lol. But I'm way smarter now so I can at least fake it much better. Does it matter? No, not even a little. Am I still interested? Heck yeah. I found this asm in the github you linked: https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal/blob/c60f1331fef22b886adf3472d2b4f348832cfaf7/engine/routines/checknickerrors.asm Since I'm not too familiar with pokemon data structure, maybe you could take a look at it and see if this could explain the phenomena we are seeing. I think its funny that you list all these pokemon as legal or not. I mean, if we are being honest, unless you were actually at an event and got the mew, its really not legal. There is just no way for anyone to know. You know what's extra funny? I see the paper pokemon authenticity certificates on ebay here and there, and the Mew they are selling with it is totally fake. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Official-Mew-with-certificate-Gameboy-Color-Pikachu-Edition-Pokemon-Yellow/152848861064?hash=item2396808788:g:4-gAAOSwTQtaSeOt. The guy hacked together a mew that is using event DV values for its actual attack/defense/special/speed lol.
  8. I don't doubt you , but I have been trying to find out if this is actually true or not, to no avail. Not a lot of verifiable sources, since everyone has been using emulators rather than original hardware since the internet got big. I always thought this might be an emulator specific. Do you by any chance have any sources or links/vids/etc? If not, no big deal. If I get access to a cartridge save file manager I'll test this myself, but right now not really keen on buying one just to test this one thing.
