  1. I am personally under the opinion it was just to piss me off! Since every single Pokemon that I have caught or bred since December 2017 has been caught in a Beast Ball, I feel this was directed at people like me. It was over 2.5 hours for the first Mewtwo caught in Ultra Space with a Beast Ball. I had to breed a Smeargle specifically for Mewtwo's caught after that to Imprision their Recover. I bred EVERYTHING into Beast Balls. (It pains me to see Alolan and Galarian starters in regular Beast Balls!)
  2. I really hope with the return of the Ultra Beasts we do see a pocket of Ultra Space AND A bloody Beast Ball vendor. Trading myself for Beast Balls is just no fun!
  3. Thanks for that! Looks like if they add any more new HA's down the line... Bank won't help us unlock them.
  4. You are talking about the Galarian for Kantonian trader, right? I can test that. (In theory since they seem to appear at Random. This also provides 0 control over IVs or Shininess.) Also @theSLAYERthe Discord link above goes nowhere.
  5. @theSLAYER, do the VC mons show "Levitate (H)" when transfered into SM/USUM? (Home does NOT update the ability! It's SwSh that update the ability! My Neutralizing Gas showed Levitate on Home until transferring it into SwSh.)
  6. Koffing/Weezing is for sure in the Dream World (Rugged Mountain). It's definitely not in the Friend Safari. (It's also seems it was available in ORAS.) GameFreak will continue to make more Regional Variants over time, it's only safe to assume more Pokemon lines like Wingul/Peliper and Koffing/Weezing will have their abilties change to gain a Hidden Ability to the species. Since it's only a matter of time, before we loose Pokemon Bank and the 3DS servers forever. I am attempting to find out which Pokemon without a Hidden Ability CURRENTLY can be caugh with the game set to said non-existent Hidden Ability. It's looks as if the Dream World is out. (Does this mean Dream Radar is also out?) Thanks peeps for testing DexNav & Virtual Console!!
  7. Don't know! Updated the post (short version): Is "Stench (H)" Kantonian Weezing legal in Sword/Shield?
  8. Hello all, With the addition of addition of the "Battle Version" feature in v1.2.0 Update to Sword & Shield, we are now able to the first time ever used transferred Pokémon in OFFICIAL competitive events. This means it's possible to Alolan evolution only Pokémon bred in Alola or a Kantonian Weezing. From time to time, species with only a single ability have their abilities revised. In Gen 7, the Pelipper evolution line gained a Hidden Ability. In Gen 8, the Weezing (Kantonian) line when from being a single ability species to a 3 ability species. This means when a Pokemon obtained in a prior generation is migrated, their ability will update to match the current generation. (For example: if you transfer a bred Kantonian Weezing with "Levitate (2)" from Alola to Galar via Bank/Home, you will notice that Kantonian Weezing will have "Neutralizing Gas (2)".) Since this concept of updating Pokémon without Hidden Abilities to gain Hidden Abilities, I would like to know if it's possible to have obtained the Hidden Ability version of Pokémon which as of Generation 7 did not have a Hidden Ability? (For example: is it possible to obtain "Levitate (H)" Koffing from the Dream World?) In the scenarion of Pokémon without Hidden Abilities as of Generation 5 or 6, was it possible to obtain the "Single Ability (H)" ability from either the Entree Forest OR Friend Safari OR DexNav? The ultimate end question is: Is "Stench (H)" Kantonian Weezing legal in Sword/Shield? Thanks
  9. I understand there is a bit of a worry surrounding the lastest set of temporary online suspension bans for Sword/Shield. The mass majority of people who worry actually have nothing to worry about. The Sword & Shield titles are not like Fornite or Pokemon Go in that they are not operated on dedicated servers where the save files live. So, the save you are playing right now on Sword & Shield will never be scanned by GameFreak. The recent wave of "single title online suspensions" (or error code: 2124-4607) is issued to players who generated a LARGE number of errors on the Nintendo Online Service servers. While I cannot specifically speak to the Switch, I assume the back-end operates a lot like the 3DS does in which when a 1st party title (or in this case a title of developer whom Nintendo considers a 1st party developer like GameFreak) encounters an error which pertains to online active, a secondary error is reported to Nintendo (akin to how any Windows application can generate an error which can be reported to Microsoft's Windows' team.) This is entirely from online activity in which one or more users (players) generate enough errors in a short period of time in which it could be interferring with the Nintendo Online Service servers. This is where the recent wave of "single title online suspensions" come in which @theSLAYERtweeted and players are worrying about. The Sword & Shield Raids were programmed very flimsily. The TLDR instead of each player receiving a single ID code and checking the game's code (or downloaded Mystery Gift data), the Host transmits the all that data. This allows that data to be edited and players without a CFW Switch can interact with these edited Raids. The funny thing is while it does leave the game open to these Raids being edited, it's also a weird fail safe hacked Raids as this method programming leaves the Raids more holes than Swiss Cheese. It's very easy for an error to occur as each game attempts to patch the holes. (I am speaking on this topic as someone who tested a lot of offline edited Raids.) If you search YouTube or Twitch, you will find the majority of people Hosting online these hacked Raids are trying to do so for profit. You are 99.999999% never going to accidentally stumble into one of these Raids. These people are providing these hacked Raids for profit so their priority is ensuring happy customers by providing one of more of the following 3 things: 4-Digit Invite Code Locked Raids Friend Code for the hacked Switch so as a friend you get priority on the SwSh Stamps A period of time unlimited repeat time for customers (usually at least 30 minutes) before their access is cut-off somehow To provide the maximum amount of Raids, the Host will immediately close the SwSh program once the Raid starts which will leave the 3 joining players to defeat the current Raid. This allows the Host to get another 3 people going before the previous Raid starts. (I have done this with non-hacked Shiny Raids on a non-hacked Switch.) I would bet anything that as of v1.2.0 two things changed involving the secondary report that is issued to Nintendo: The Host and/or all players Nintendo Account IDs are transmitted with the Raid-related online errors. GameFreak and Nintendo have agreed lowered these types of errors detected to issue this type of ban. As I said above, 99.999999% of people are never going to accidentally encounter this ban. It's nothing to worry about for people not purposely hunting down these Hosts looking to make a quick buck off of you!
  10. Last week, I already pre-ordered from an eBay seller (whom I have had good dealing with) for 4 of each code. The trust-worthy peeps on eBay wait until they receive confirmation of dates for receiving the codes with the movie/event ticket orders in Japan. #muchexcite (Wish I hadn't pooch'd my CFW Online this month to be able to share the loaded Gifts for the database.)
  11. Hello all, For those who do not know me, I studied under a video game development program in the early 2000's. While I did not end up pursuing development as a career, I still actively apply the knowledge to trying to understand what's under the hood of the franchise that first made me want to go into video game development: Pokémon. I am not a code hunter. I am more of enthusiast who enjoys sharing this information with the masses so we all can maintain a database of LIVE RAM Edits for the insight and befenfit of the community as a whole to increase the overall understanding of what is and isn't possible with the games. The Atmosphere CFW OS for CFW uses a built-in cheat app called Edizon which means every single CFW Switch owner with Atmosphere OS are forced to use it. The homebrew app Edizon does not allow for a manual ON/OFF of individual codes which means people interested in experimenting have to maintain their own database of codes and go through the hassle of deleting and re-adding codes to the .TXT file for the codes for the game on a FREQUENT basis. The Atmosphere OS Live requires codes to be located under a specific system folder which is sorted into folders under the TitleID of each game with separate .TXT file for each BuildID (aka version of the game): Game TitleID BuildID (for v1.2.0) Pokémon Shield 01008db008c2c000 e38a27bc77702548 Pokémon Sword 0100abf008968000 5a7eebf172343616 [Always Encounter Modifier Wild/Egg/Fossil Pokemon (v1.2.0)] 04000000 00770A20 18FFFE68 04000000 00770A4C 18FFFD01 04000000 00770A58 18FFFC81 04000000 00770B1C 18FFF680 04000000 00770B24 18FFF621 04000000 00770B80 18FFF360 04000000 00770B84 18FFF321 [* Note: This code alone is incomplete.

witnessed drastic changes. The change from v1.1.1 to v1.2.0 shifted the location in memory of all the ENCOUNTERS handling BUT thankfully the entirety of it was moved together. The memory shift was found and applied to all the existing ENCOUNTERS related codes. The Sword & Shield titles ONLY have error handling for "impossible" Pokémon. There are no such "legality" checks built into the mainline Pokémon games furthermore GameFreak currently has no such services immplimented on the Pokémon Home servers. There is an error handler for Pokémon encountering mons outside of the National Dex range which drops in a Pikachu called "Egg." There is also an error handler for illegal gendered Pokémon (for example: Female Mew OR Genderless Charmander) which is displayed in-game by replacing the 2D sprite shown in menus or on Raid preview screens with a 2D sprite of a black PokéBall symbol. Since there's no error handling for "legit" Pokémon, the game is not tracking for LIVE RAM Edits. This means there's no error handling to correct a mistake you make (like that Genderless Charmander) and as such the game will allow it to occur. When a new Pokémon is encountered (whether it's in-game trade, wild, Raid, or even newly discovered Egg), there's a module which puts together all of the pieces of data which make up that Pokémon in a single sector of memory. The single module uses the EXACT same sector of memory for ALL types of encountered Pokémon from in-game Gift Pokémon to Fossil Pokémon, from eggs to Pokémon in tall grass. The module checks for any all the known (predetermined information like how in-game Gift Pokémon have pre-determined IVs) and plugs those values in. Next, the module randomizes any of the unknowns (like Nature when not Synconized OR Ability two ability mons.) After assembling the COMPLETED the module sends the whole Pokémon back to the game's code to use. Since all Pokémon are passing throught the same sector of memory, we can apply LIVE RAM Edits/codes to set the results of one or more charactistics which over-writes randomization and predetermined values. (Once again, the game will not attempt to correct any mistakes you make like assigning a Hidden Ability to a Route 1 wild Pokémon.) Since there's currently neither the mainline games nor Home are preforming any legality checking, you can VERY easily make ILLEGAL Pokémon. LIVE RAM Editing should be something in which is not taking lightly to ensure no ILLEGAL Pokémon spawn in-game as a result. While the game may not show your mistakes now, PKHeX will and down the road one day maybe even Pokémon Home will but when that happens chances are the mon will be deleted from the server. Everyone here is against the creation and sharing of ILLEGAL Pokémon so keep that in mind!
  12. My CFW Switch received the ban hammer on the 8th a few days after the OS update on June 4th. First, I would like to say: it was 100% user error. The instant I saw the OS error pop-up, I knew what I had done wrong. I checked and sure enough, I done Goof'd! Second, I would like to say: Nintendo does not send out commands to a Switch which bricks it. (Nintendo cannot individually mod a single consumer's Switch as it's illegal in many countries.) The ban that Nintendo issues is server side. The hardware ID for your specific Switch is added to a list on the Nintendo servers. The Nintendo servers for eShop (including game updates), system updates, and Nintendo Online Service immediately reject the system and you get an OS error. The Switch becomes semi-bricked for future games which require your system to have newer firmware. For example: the new version v1.2.0 for Pokémon Sword & Shield to support the first DLC Pack now requires the newest Switch firmware. (Ironically, the parnoia of the CFW Community has resulted in tools already existing to update your Switch firmware offline without Nintendo.) Now, in terms of what causes you to get banned, there's no way for Nintendo do detect when cheats are used online. This is especially true for non-first party developers (ie GameFreak who makes Pokémon.) Furthermore, its legally difficult to prove it or enforce it on a console. We are not talking about games like Fornite where the ONLY game running on their servers is Fornite and any anti-cheat methods they are using are reported during game sessions on their servers directlty to them. GameFreak doesn't receive reports from Nintendo from their servers to say "yes" or "no" that player is cheating. I am unable to offer a technical guarantee BUT I believe what the Nintendo servers are doing whenever you access online features which go through Nintendo that the internal game database is scanned. Inside you system is an a database of all titles (with IDs) including updates (with IDs) which have been installed on your system even if never played. Many people have noticed that when you delete a game off your Switch which had an update that when you plug the Game Card back into your system it immediately says you must update to play. (Well, this is to ensure your game matches the version of the last save file so the game knows how to read said save file.) Anways, this feature of remembering updates comes from said database. What you might not realize is that all installed games (aka eShop games) have an ID specific to the Nintendo Account which bought said title. The Nintendo Switch does not support Game Card back-ups so when you "install" a game onto your system from a back-up, it doesn't have an eShop ID. So, when the server scans this database on your console and finds either a cartridge back-up or eShop title which does doesn't match the accounts on the Switch, the system is flagged to be banned. The only way to scrub this database clear is a factory reset. So, after a year, of using my CFW fully with my Nintendo Switch Online account. I made the mistake on June 3rd of playing a backed up copy of Boarderlands with a friend that was visiting. I had Wifi disabled during that entire play session. I did nothing to provoke the ban... except that backed up game remaining in my system's internal database. So, the next day when I told my Switch to do the firmware update naturally, my system was scanned. I would bet anything if on June 3rd, I had factory reset my system... that my CFW Switch would had never been banned.
  13. I only on video games. (I was a teenager when the first games in there series were released. Why would you assume people interested in the franchise buy into merch aimed at children?) The Pokémon International Company as a result of merch profits exponentially more when GameFreak makes brand new Pokémon for them sell. We shall see if any more mainline remakes are made on the Switch over the coming years.
  14. I would rather talk about the industry (GameFreak) as they still control all the creative freedom over the series. New Regions and new Pokémon will always be in their house. You can focus on business (The Pokémon International Company) but you have to be kidding yourself if you think that they make more money from GameFreak doing a remake then GameFreak making new monsters for them to slap on t-shirts and make into dolls!
  15. We do! It's a flag like how mon's have different forms! Here's what I know (regardless of what Kurt has hidden from us in PKHeX) from live RAM edits: 08000000 007704A8 00000001 00000000 The game uses a memory sector of 16 hex-decimal places in length to call up a species on the encounter table which is pointed to with the purple highlighted portion. I know 100% that the positions in yellow is the National Dex species look-up. Three hex-decimal places can handle over 4000 species so it's unlikely the green is part of that but it would be cleaner code to query an even number of digits (4) than an odd (3.) I know that the Blue is the Form indicator. Which is how I can tell you that Kantonian Meowth is the form on the encounter table is under the hex value: "3". I have no idea specifically what the rest of the red is used (all my usage testing it's always been set to 0) however from the way the game acts I am willing to bet anything one of those decimal places HAS to set Gigantamax status. Since the only way in-game to encounter legal Gigantamax Pokémon via Raids, I have never had to trying figure it out to encounter OTHER Gigantamax Pokémon via the same Raid with Live RAM edits.
