    Yeah I knew what you meant. I just thought that was that Lol.... I wasn't aware of the "pickup" ability.

    Yeah, it's been a thing since Gen 3. Items change the higher the Pokemon is. It is really handy if you happen to get lucky and pick up a Rare Candy or Great Ball with it.

    You can always randomize trainer gift items.... I guess that's as close as you can get lol.

    No, there isn’t an option for that, well maybe de OWSE(dev) at the bottom, I looked at it and it seems you can mod the map (npc, pickups...) I didn’t tested it, but maybe it can

    I hate to double post, but I'm having an issue with the randomizer and the person who made just like... completely ignored me. I tried to randomize TMs, and it went through in the randomizer, but the game didn't accept the change. I checked my updates and I have no updates for Sun or Moon in my DLC list. Any ideas?

    I figured out the problem. I was getting my folders mixed up because they all looked the same. So what I thought was the randomized code.bin file was actually the backup one I copied over by accident. *facepalm* At least I figured that much out by myself. I do hope they find a way to add field item randomization. I like the randomized shops, but I actually found a shop that was selling the Master Ball for literally nothing before I even took on the first trial. lol

    To avoid that in the future, check the timestamps of the garcs. The one PK3DS just edited will be the most recent....

    Okay, I'm trying to patch a JP game update with a translation patch and I still have no idea how to work this. Using Luma's innate patching lags my game so I'm trying to get a prepatched .cia running.

    Image here is what was told in the translation's own post but I have no clue what this means either.

    Then how do I go about unpacking the games? When I use the hacking toolkit, I just get the decrypted files but no folders...

    SciresM and co. are able to get into it to make their PK3DS work, but I figured I can too since I have a .3ds file. I can't decrypt it though, so I decrypted a .cia. That doesn't extract correctly...neither does the .3DS since it just crashes before it is about to extract the romfs...I don't know...
