    I purchased this package yesterday in order to redeem the Golden Backpack code without buying the Double Pack. Now that the Shiny Necrozma event is being sent via the Secret Club (which my code for should be arriving soon), would I be able to redeem this event on my US/English Ultra Sun digital copy?

    As long as you have a Japan region 3DS, whether it's stock or you changed your emuNAND region to display Japan, you will be able to redeem the Necrozma code. It won't work on NA/PAL/TW/KOR region 3DS.

  2. Yes. It's not shiny locked, so a legal one shouldn't have any problems going through Bank.

    Just keep in mind that a Shiny Manaphy has very specific requirements it needs to meet in order to be shiny. When you transfer the egg from Ranger to a gen 4 game, the game that received the egg will never be able to hatch it shiny. It's shiny locked only for the OT. The only way you're able to hatch it shiny is to trade the egg to a second game in the same generation, and hatch it in the second game. It's not a guaranteed shiny hatch either, because the egg's PID needs to match with the save file's TID and SID combination in order to hatch it shiny. I don't recommend doing this through Soft Resetting, most people just RNG this part.

  3. Can confirm this happens only with the latest version. My Shiny Meadow Form and Garden Form Vivillon are all flagged with "Invalid: Internal Error". I tried looking through the source code to see why it would happen and I believe it's a byproduct of trying to combine 3DS Geolocation with Form; Italy and England are not recognized locations.

  4. The message you are talking about is for the green box you have in your OT field. Click on the space that says "Latest (not OT) Handler" to turn the middle box green. Your Darkrai is still illegal, so I would advise you fix the other errors too.

  5. I assume your original OT was a full 7 characters long, and you are changing it to "Nate" which is 4 characters long right? The trash bytes are generated for the original OT, but when editing them they only get overwritten depending on how long your edited OT will be. The 5th character was edited to be a null terminator, expecting nothing after it. It is reading your 6th and 7th character which were unchanged from your original OT, so you will need to change those values to x0000.

    Hey @ICanSnake, do you have the wc6 of that wonder card?

    In the mean time, I’ll track down whose the original contributor and check the entries

    I do not, only the ones available here in the gallery. I got the Sylveon in the top screenshot in a trade, and the one in the bottom screenshot has characteristics of it being Powersaved. The one in the top screenshot matches the other Sylveons I have too:

    01044 ENG XY Sylveon [Naive] Jan 19, 2014 (Quick tempered).pk6

    01044 JP XY Sylveon [Bashful] Jan 18, 2014 (Somewhat stubborn).pk6

    01044 JP XY Sylveon [Serious] April 13, 2013 (Highly persistent).pk6

  7. Hi. For a while know, I've had these 01044 XY Sylveons that keep getting flagged in PKHeX. I had no idea why because I'm sure they're legit, but today I found the reason why. Apparently PKHeX is indexing the met location 1 off from the correct location. The correct location, as seen in the wondercard uploaded here and the info on Bulbapedia, should be "a Pokemon event." But PKHeX is indexing it to "a Pokemon movie".

    Is there a way to create a "chain shiny" from programs such as PKHeX? Or if you got any tips on how, that'd also be appreciated!

    There should be a Chained Shiny option in RNG Reporter, but honestly I've never touched that option so I'm not sure what PIDs it generates. It should give you what you want though.

  9. 1. Yes, the correlation loosens from gen 4 to gen 5 but there is still a small relationship between PID and IVs. Each PID is correlated to an RNG frame, the problem lies within how gen 5 RNG works. Gen 5 RNG is based on your physical system, so theoretically there is no way to reverse search a PID and find a matching RNG frame. The relationship between PID and IVs  only determines the charateristic; Technically, any combination of IVs are valid as long as the characteristic is the same. Just make sure you don't get confused and say "all PID and IV combinations are valid".

    IIRC Encryption Constant has the same effect in gen 6 and 7. but I'm not completely sure.

    Kind of answered the other two questions with that lol. Yes, characteristic (as determined by IVs) is tied to PID in gen 5, and Encryption Constant in gen 6/7. In gen 5 you wouldn't be able to reverse search a PID, but you can find a valid PID and apply different valid IV spreads on them, as long as the characteristic is the same.

    Hey so I just downloaded this mew and was wondering if the met date should be changed? Mine showed up as todays date?


    Are you placing it in a gen 7 save file through PKHeX? Please don't. Since the Mew is a .pk1, it can only be traded through gen 1 and gen 2 games, no Virtual Console releases either. Gen 3 was designed differently and didn't have backwards trading compatibility, so there's physically no way to get a gen 1 Pokemon into a gen 7 game. Placing it in gen 7 will make it illegal.

  11. Are you editing the IVs and possibly shininess or PIDs on the Pichus? I think these Pichus were hosted by Ahiru's Wonderland, so it's important to leave their information alone when hatching them. Unfortunately you gave them the wrong IVs so they will become illegal. In gen 3 and 4, there is a relationship between the PID, IVs, and nature.

  12. Yes, @Poke J is correct. Gen 3 has no met date data, Gen 3 obtains a date when it's Pal Parked to gen 4. Gen 4's dates are its original obtain dates.

    When transferred to gen 5, gens 3 and 4 will have overwritten dates to match the day it was transferred to gen 5. Gen 5's met date will be the original obtain date.

    After gen 5, met data will stay the same and won't be overwritten. Transferring to gen 6, the only thing that's gained is a 3DS location, the 3DS data that transferred the Pokemon from gen 5 to gen 6. Gens 3 and 4 will have the date when it was transferred to gen 5, and gen 5 will have the date it was obtained. I don't know about the met level though, but I guess Bulbapedia says the met level gets changed from 5 -> 6?

  13. The problem is because of the wondercard itself. Yes it was only obtainable in Platinum, but just like many gen 4 wondercards there are static information on them, and origin game is one of them. Although PKHeX will flag it as illegal, it is correct for it to say it came from Diamond.

    Thanks.  Unfortunately I need it in the form of a .SAV file, and I don't work with emulation (as far as I know, using an emulator is the only way to convert .SPS into .SAV).  Is there anything else I can do?

    It is possible to convert it without emulation, there's a site that can do it. I have the .sav of it myself, but unfortunately it's currently on my broken laptop and it's taking a long time to get fixed.
