  • Starter Mod

    This mod patches a lot of things to bring the best possible playing experience. Here's what it will patch for you:

    • Starter editing - Makes playing as other Pokémon possible
    • High-Res model patching - Prevents your model from disappearing during certain closeups
    • Portrait patching - Shows the default portrait in the absence of a more specific emotion portrait
    • Animation patching - Substitute missing story animations with dungeon ones to avoid the attack animation being used for everything
    • And something else in the scripts specific to Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon that can't be mentioned without revealing spoilers. It is the last item in a similar list in this video if you're fine with being spoiled, or if you've seen it before.

    You must have Java on your computer to use this.

    This has been tested on the North American and European versions of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, and the North American version of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. I don't know if will work on the Japanese version of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, but it will not work on any other version of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.

    Instructions

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

    2. Wait until the loading is complete. This is one of the heavier mods, and may take some time even on beefier computers.
    3. Save the solution, to avoid having to repeat step 2 if something goes wrong.
    4. Expand the project you just created and open "fixed_pokemon.bin". You can do this either by double-clicking or by right-clicking and clicking Open.

    5. Edit things to your liking. You should see this when editing Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Gates to Infinity has a much simpler interface):

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

      Things to consider:
      • Each Pokémon must have 4 moves. It's been a while since I tried having less, but I remember things not working with fewer than 4 moves. In my example, I got the first three moves from the level up, and the fourth from Zorua's set of egg moves, although you are not required to stick to these; you can pick anything you want.
      • (PSMD only) The evolution must be the final evolution in the line. If you pick a Pokémon with multiple evolutions, the first on will be used. Refer to the PSMD Pokédex index to find which evolution comes first (for example, if the starter is Eevee, the first evolution is Vaporeon).
    6. Click File -> Save -> Save File.

    7. You can now rebuild the mod-pack. Note that this may take a while.

    Similarly, I've been playing as an Espurr and it seems like I end up as a male Meowstic regardless of which of the two Meowstic species I set under "Evolution."

    I was hoping to play as a Female Meowstic, not sure if I'm missing something or if it's not possible at the moment. 

    If you open up the dropdown for Pokémon species, you should notice there's two entries for Meowstic. There's one for each gender, but I don't know which is which.

    hi can I request for you to add an option to choose a pokemon with a gender difference in the editing starter part. I want to have a female Pikachu so bad!

    Unfortunately, I don't know how gender works for Pikachu in PSMD, since there only seems to be one Pikachu in the game. Maybe it works differently in Sky Editor, but I don't have that handy right now.

    I see now you always get the first evo, which is male, with the scarf. Should I still be able to evolve to F-Meowstic alright in the postgame? Haven't done any evolving in SMD before so I'm not really familiar with how it works, especially with pokemon with multiple forms. 

    Sorry for the probably obvious question, and thanks for the super quick reply and awesome tool.

    That'd probably be determined by gender too. Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to change it for anyone except the partner (the cool vs cute question at the start).

    I finally got through to the post game and was able to choose which form I wanted to evolve into, so it all worked out okay.
