Hey,

I just registered here to ask for some help regarding 3ds Rom hacking/patching. Specifically for Pokemon Sun & Moon (I hope I posted this in the right section)

I'm quite pissed that Gamefreak built in a Shiny lock into the games again for most legendaries, just to give them away at a later date as event Pokemon.
I prefer to soft-reset for Shiny Pokemon as it's way more satisfying to get them that way. So just editing my save file to make them Shiny isn't an option for me either.

I saw that Bond697 released the Shiny check routine for Gen5 years ago:

so someone made codes from that for disabling the shiny lock:


So now I'm wondering if anyone has any advice of how to do something similar for the Sun/Moon roms.

Any advice is appreciated, be it a function address where I have to search inside the rom or any advice of how to search for a function. Is there a debugger I can use for 3ds roms or a table of function names?

Thanks a lot in advance!
