    Send/Take PKM Files To/From Retail Games

    A PKM file is a copy of a pokemon's data. You can get these files online, or rip them out of a save file yourself.
    Using the tools here you can send a PKM file to an actual game on your 3/DS/i, or get one out of your real game.

    This guide will NOT cover editing the PKM files, there's entire forums out there for doing that.
    This guide needs admin rights on your computer, and a wireless network.

    I have an error that I've been trying to fix for the past several days now.... Everything runs great, and I get inside the 'GTS', but get stuck on "Checking GTS's status", and get a communication error message shortly afterward. My ir-gts says that I connect, but never moves on to sending the .pkm. Any ideas?

    Sweet, you're online!

    No Security software on, I made sure to disable it all before I started. And I'm fairly certain that ports 80 and 53 are open.

    As the troubleshooter says, security softwares tend to not fully disable, and will still fuck with network stuff until uninstalled (AVG was the big offender for the last version IIRC).

    That's the thing though... the only security software I run is through Windows, and I've got it all shut down. Unless I'm missing something and perhaps I hadn't fully uninstalled something.

    I used SendPKM last year, and I remember having trouble getting it setup. trouble is, I can't remember what the problem was... I vaguely remember it was something to do with my router, but I'm at a loss trying to remember what exactly.

    Could it be that ports 80 or 53 aren't open? I run the program pkmsendportcheck and it says they are open, but canyouseeme.org gets a timeout everytime I check port 80.

    Is Skype or Steam up, if so u need to quit the program entirely

    EDIT: With this python script, it won't even come up if ports 53 or 80 aren't open

    Why won't you try this?? It works with Black/White and you can upload your own .pkm file.

    Well, the link you provided worked just fine so I'll stick with that for now.

    Still would love to figure out what the problem is when I try to do this from my own PC

    This lets you take PKM files from games, too.
