So I’ve been playing several older games and accumulated quite a lot of legitimate shiny/high IV stuff by rng abuse, all now stored on a platinum rom. I want to move everything to black 2 version via PKHex without actually modifying anything to keep everything as legit as possible. My issue is that having Pokemon in gen v with all caps names really irritates me, so using PKHex I transferred them and then checked, unchecked and checked the nickname box for each one to so they’re all registered as having nicknames and in the correct case (the idea was that they would look as though I’d used the gen 4 name rater although at this point it wouldn’t be practical since they had come from many different save files and so obviously I couldn’t rename them all in the same game). Afterwards I was told that altering the nicknames as I did can alter your trashbytes, thus making your Pokemon illegal. To rectify this I used PKHex to wipe all the trash bytes as I heard the name rater is able to do this anyway by renaming each one to a 10 character name and then back to the desired name. My question is are my Pokemon now completely legal down to the last byte of data? Also how does the name rater remove trash bytes? Can he be used to remove every single one in all Pokemon or is it just the trash bytes that are associated with the nickname? Any advice appreciated. Thanks in advance. Apologies for the wall of text.
