    It gets corrupted by PKHeX, NOT the save manager. I'm using Checkpoint just for this, but if I load the save on PKHeX and do even one thing, it gets corrupted!:/

    The legendaries are in the Altar of the Moone in Poni Island. Just get there directly with Charizard and go through the ultra wormhole. Little advice though, if you end up going after Kyogre, you REALLY need something like a Lapras! I'm at Kyogre and my team gets wiped at level 90 because I'm trying to catch it while it spams Calm Minds and Origin Pulses!:angry:

    I only changed the "date met" for all mons, the EVs for the legendaries (EV training is a pain in this game), date of adventure start and basically all dates because I noticed RTChanger set my year to 2030! Besides that, I just gave myself more Pokeballs (the Johto ones and Masterballs), Big Nuggets (for money), Rare Candies and Bottle Caps. That's all, no major edits, didn't even bother genning anything yet, but it gets corrupted if I do ANYTHING on the save, even just nicknaming something corrupts the save, even with the Pokedex setting unchecked since for whatever reason it goes automatically from unchecked to checked and that's how it gets corrupted... Should I try a different version? Also, you get only one of each legendary, but infinite amount of the UBs that are inside the wormholes. Unchecking the flags in PKHeX allows to find legends again though...

    The UBs are in the ultra wormhole, so you get them from there, no missions from the looks of it. After beating Giovanni, there's not much to do, just do Battle Tree, Battle Agency or fill up the dex.

    I feel you, that mini-game gets old VERY fast...

    Magikarp Splash is a hidden move that's never added to the movepool, but it's not worth it, it looks like it gives lots of points but it gives VERY little compared to even the bronze ones. Keep spamming the highest level ones you got, get first place, unlock gold+ ones and then watch your score go to 100+K while you make more BP than even the Battle Tree!:P

    Gamefreak office on second island, next to that place where the prof's wife works. You talk to the guy in the white Aether scientist costume to change controls.

    If you got a Poison Touch Grimer, just use Crunch or something and if you get a poison on it along with the damage, it won't last long:P

    Surprisingly, I haven't. Don't know why they made them so rare in this game!:/


    PS: For anyone wondering, the games are NOT shorter than S/M, just have less of a chore things to do. They don't force you to go to some random area just to get UBs just to pad out the time, but Rainbow Rocket takes longer than the Looker UB missions, so post game isn't shorter. Also, for main story, it's longer by about 2-3 hours, just less tiring so you don't really notice it.

    What version are you using? I've been updating to the latest commit every couple hours and didn't get any issues. I genned Synchronize Gardevoirs too, no problems. The RTChanger may be the issue? I set my date to 11/17, and the Gardevoirs were set to 11/20.

    I did finish UM last night. 33 hours and 47 minutes, one of the shorter play times for me. This counts only up to being the Champion, post-game not included.

    I guess a PSA should be made about PKHex being able to backup loaded saves. I enabled it on the first ever boot, but if you didn't and want to enable it, just create a folder named "bak" in the same directory as PKHex and it backs up all saves loaded. So that if it's corrupted, you can just load the backup and try again. I have a feeling not many people did that and it explains the corrupt save trend. And another PSA/disclaimer, PKHex does not yet have a stable release with USUM support yet (I expect one on Friday), so you're playing with fire right at the get-go, don't blame the devs for that. Echoing what's said here. http://gbatemp.net/threads/psa-stop-reporting-bugs-for-pkhex-pk3ds-for-ultra-sm.489376

    One very well hidden is to the right of the door to that Normal captain's house, another is in his swimming pool. Also, one needs fishing out in Paniola Ranch (where you got Stoutland ride). Another is behind the Wella Volcano sign that requires Tauros. Finally, there's one in Battle Tree's entrance and a LOT in the Hano Beach/Resort part. You can load your save on PKHeX to see which ones you are missing and where they are.

    I used RTChanger before starting the game. I used the 4123 release since that was the latest "Master" branch one, guess I'll try again with the newer ones... For backup saves, most editors do it, just remove the ".bak" part and you got your save back:P

    ok so I found the 3 I was missing, (all three in paniola town) but the last few don't seem to warrant a call from oak. is there really another 10? I'm certain I've entered every building in the game.

    Go talk to him, don't know what really happens when you get them all, so I can't help you. Perhaps there's 101 or something:/

    Ok, so I had this idea I wanted to test out and needed a Pikachu, so I did the Mantine Surf thing and got the Surf one. It seems you get the Fly Pikachu if you beat your high score using the special Magikarp Splash at least once! Perhaps you may even get the Surf+Fly Pikachu after that! Gonna try it out in a bit...

    For anyone having trouble, here's how to use the moves right:
    Low wave- the Primarina move
    Medium wave- Starmie 720
    High wave- Lanturn 360
    and use one Magikarp Splash too (you get a lot of points the first time you use it, but next to nothing if you use it again)

    With those, you can easily get 60+K on any course, I did 103K on the Poni one for example and 75K on Melemele. Also, higher score means more BP, so more incentive!:P

    are you sure the magicarp thing is necessary? I was pretty sure you only had to break all four of your records.

    Getting first place in everything is for Surf Pikachu. For Fly one it seems you need to use the SPECIAL Magikarp Splash to beat your records. Don't know if you only need to beat one of them or all of them though... Magikarp Splash is activated when you do 4 movements that don't correspond to some other move, but special one requires those four movements to be different (eg: up, right, down, left). Haven't tried yet for Fly one, I'll post when I do it.
