  • Starter Mod

    After creating a modpack, one such mod you can add for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is the Starter Mod, a modification that changes the available starters you can use.

    Before continuing, please make sure you've reached the "Making Mods" section of the Sky Editor guide to ROM editing.

    Creating the Project

    1. On the New Project window, choose "Starter Mod" in the dropdown, and fill in the name with something that makes sense. Then click OK.

    2. Expand the project you just created and open "Starter Pokemon". You can do this either by double-clicking or by right-clicking and clicking Open.

    3. Edit things to your liking. You should see something that looks like this:

      For the purpose of this guide, we'll do this:

      You can also go to the Partner tab and customize things. Be careful, since the game will not let you choose anything with the same type as the player.

    4. Click File -> Save -> Save File.

    You can now build the modpack, continue editing, or move create another project.

    The Result

    When you create a new save, you should see the results of your modifications as you would expect. Here's what my example edits look like:

    Remarks

    Observe how there's no portraits for Grovyle or Porygon. This is because many unplayable Pokémon do not have all of the usual emotions, like the grin that's normally here. We'll want to copy the default portrait to the other emotions to be less distracting. Luckily, this is very simple, as the Portrait Mod does this as soon as you create the project. Follow the instructions for the Portrait Mod, then build them together:

    The result of the two working together works like this:

    Plus, he stops the immediate second he's not in the sleeping stance. I would know it's the sleeping stance, since while I haven't gotten to the parts of the game that indicates days pass by, I do know that the starter pokemon lies down here.

    Huh. Alright... I'll just have to live with it. But what about for the idle stance in cutscenes being the first frame of walking?

    I can only choose "Modpack".

    I just want to play as Deoxys

    Based on the screenshot, looks like you're using an old version. Please try the latest version:

    Is there any way to change the placeholder walking animation to just standing still? I don't really want to deal with my MC walking in place all game.
     

    If there isn't a way in SkyEditor, is there any software that can do this?

    I followed the mods and everything went well, the only thing im unsure about is how to run the mod. Do i just run the rom? Or it it something i extracted with out paying attention. Thanks for the amazing tools BTW

    I know it was posted somewhere. but i just can't find the information about picture editing for pokemon mystery dungeon explorers of sky. it had something to do with only using a certain amount of colours, and blending them softly or something? i really can't remember... has anyone got an idea of how to make detailed pictures that are still readable by the rom?

    I have a question, I managed to get shaymin as my Partner Pokemon, But every time I fight a boss or complete a a dungeon he reverts to his land form. Does any one know why this is happening or how to fix it? I just want shaymin to stay in his sky-form the whole game.
