    Ohhh I see that makes sense! Thank you so much! Just to make sure I understand. So you are basically backing up your home/game with all the Pokémon then logging into home again with their Nintendo account to go through your sword or shield to drag and drop then you can just move gen 1 through 7 through the move method? 🤔

    I’m sorry this reply took so long and I hope you have figured it out by now 😅😅 but yes!

  2. So do I need to actually purchase the dlc? Because the game Itself is updated and I have saved and backed up since the dlc?

    I did have to purchase the dlc. Lol. It works now. Thank you!

  3. I log into their home account and drop them. Basically put their account on your switch. Go through the home intro on their profile and save and exit. Open the game on their profile and just play through that first save right before the little intro video plays. Close game. Go into check point and restore your file into their account. Go back into home in their account and just drag and drop. This does require trust because people have to give you their Nintendo email and password. I have a Facebook group with a lot of customers who have let me do it.

    @kaytee Okay, how bout don't do ANY of those things.

    First, load up a save file in PKHeX.
    Then, create as many mons as you like.
    Then, Tools > Data > Dump Boxes. Choose a folder to dump to.
    (alternatively, File > Export SAV..)

    If you go by the Dump Boxes route, the folder will have lots of PK8.
    To import them into another save: Tools > Data > Load Boxes

    Okay, both of your suggestions actually worked. I can now load a whole box of saved mons. However, it’s still showing “blank save file” at the top and I’m still not able to export 🤦‍♀️

    Look, I tried to import the exact save box data as you, and it loaded fine.
    Clearly you are doing something wrong.

    Next, the "export" button is grayed out as you did not load a save file.
    Load a switch file, have all the mons there.
    Alternatively, use PKHeX's Tools > Data > Dump Boxes, to dump all the PK8 files into a folder.

    Yea, I know I’m doing something wrong... I just don’t know what? I load pkhex, it loads just fine. I work on a single Pokémon. I save it, and drag it into the app and it loads just fine. I load a few mons into a box, go over to SAV click save box data++ click no to export box one. Save to the bak folder, drag and drop to the pkhex app... click “run”... and then that’s when I get that error message. 😣

    As far as I can tell, the pcdata file is blank?
    I loaded it onto my SWSH save file, and it wiped out the pc.

    (also, your video shows nothing to me. edit: downloaded, and opened it in VLC, and there's finally an image.)

    1. Extract PKHeX from the zip.
    2. Drag and Drop the pcdata onto PKHeX. As in use the mouse to drop the file ONTO PKHeX. Requires you to extract to do so. (hence the first step)
    3. Do not "double-click" the PCdata to try to access the data. You need to drag and drop it on PKHeX.

    Anyhow, the pcdata is empty. No idea why you're trying to import an empty file.

    I’m not trying to import anything. I’m trying to make sure I can save a box of mons to eventually import onto a hacked switch. I extracted the zip file, dragged and dropped the file into pkhex and still keep getting the same error message. I’m also wondering why I don’t even have an export option in pkhex itself (it’s grayed out). But anyway, I appreciate you guys trying to help. Hopefully I’ll figure it out eventually! 😁

    the pcdata? upload it. Also was it created for SWSH?

    So, I downloaded what I’m pretty sure is the latest version of pkhex (clicked download on the home page). I may have to post an actual video of what it’s doing to best explain. But basically, I can open pkhex just fine, I can save and open and individual Pokémon just fine... I just can’t open a saved box and I don’t have the option to export.

    @kaytee erm, JKSM.cia is a homebrew app for your 3DS. You won't be able to open it in PKHeX.

    What generation is the PCdata for? Maybe try to loading a save before importing the box.

    Trying to use it for sword and shield.
