Hi all, I am a IT student and I am currently trying to reverse engineer the inner working of the Gen IV Distribution ROM. I already figured out the basics but... Right now, I am facing an issue with the way data is encrypted. I already know of tools such as WC4PCD or PokeGen, PokeHex... but I am trying to understand and create my own program to decrypt and reencrypt all by myself. So I am asking if any one here as any leads or straight up know what encryption algorithm is used. I obviously did some research but no luck yet. (Chat GPT told me to XOR the file but idk what key to use). Thanks in advance, and my apologies if I made any english mistake
Hello! this is my first post in this community. I've downloaded a hex editor in order to edit the initial savegame file for Let's Go Pikachu, following this guide: The thing is I've never done hex editing before. I wanted to modify the Pikachu's gender, since the savegame I got here made it female. In the past I modified it directly using PkHex after obtaining it, but I found out that the home screen will always display the female version no matter what with this method. Now I'm willing to learn some hex editing for various reason and I tried searching for the starter gender value (0x10B9). The problem is that it doesn't find any value with "x" in it. I think I'm missing some crucial data that doesn't allow me to understand the guide. Could someone please help me with this? You can even provide guides for me to read, if you don't want to write it out yourself.
