    That could be useful if people wanted to do it multiple times without having to use the 3ds multiple times, just for that, and to also make things somewhat easier, but I personally don't know how to do it...

    it would be good because someone could host some code on a server provide a link to the latest badge data, updating once a week (or whenever new badges are released!)
    anyway, thanks

    Unfortunatly, there won't be any new badges anymore.
    The last update for Japan was on 26th of May, and USA/Europe got their last ones on 22nd/23rd of June.
    You'll have to download and decrypt files only once to get all badges ever released.

    Speaking of server, there was this: https://github.com/SciresM/BadgeArcadeTool
    That's a tool that could automatically get badges from SpotPass data (it required a 3DS for decryption, as it was the only way back then).
    If you check last pages of this old badge sharing thread, you'll see that some people have managed to set up that tool and have been posting weekly badge dumps made with it.
    So, there actually was no problem for people to get any of the official badges, as they all have been dumped already.

    I just never really liked the idea of dumping badges as PNG's, one of the reasons for this was the fact that all of badges' info (names, shortcuts TitleID's, etc) will be lost.
    Well, I do keep those dumps in PNG format myself, as previews, but I wouldn't be using them as actual badges.
    That's why I'm very happy that ABE has support for official formats now, I think that it's much cleaner than using PNG's. ^_^

    UPDATE! Changed the Tool Pack and got rid of the Pythonless Pack. Python is no longer necessary! Oh, and now you can Decrypt BOSS files on your computer using the arm9 bootrom file (boot9.bin) (Suggestion from @cearp). Also updated the guide :P

    I'm guessing it's a mix of all the other similar sets, but was never used and was left there in the data. For example, AnimalBook could be the conjunction of the Animal, Animal2, AnimalFes, AnimalItem and AnimalItem2 sets.

    I could very possibly be wrong

    Thanks for the info... its safe not to use it right when i created a full 7 set of pokemon badges (regular pictures and the pixels)

    another question, why in your screenshot there are crown icon beside the icon selection? thanks again...

    the crowns are when you set the item quantity to a very high value, and it gives you an infinite number of that badge.
    i found both silver and gold crowns, but they both seemed to be unlimited.
    i assume there is some nice tool to do it now, without hex editing :D

    I know I'm kinda late with this reply, but still… :P

    As far as I can tell, "book" icons are actually used in Badge Arcade game.
    They're used as icons for "collections" of related sets, exactly how you guessed.
    So, yeah, we shouldn't care about them, as they're never used as icons for actual sets.

    i just read few articles on the web and it says there will be no more update coming to this game...
    so since theres no more update, how bout shortening the tutorial? just asuggestion.
    what i mean, zip the decompressed files (badges) and attach it on the OP, then instructions on how to inject those file using Advanced badge editor Tool Pack
    and Simple Badge Injector on 3ds...
    unless its, prohibited to attach those decompressed files?

    Yeah...
    and the fact that barely anyone cares about this, but that's not that important, right?... right... I guess people just aren't interested in this, that's why

    yeah, the game is too expensive for $1=5 or less badge. :-( much better if they add that game on MiiPlaza and a 1 time pay like other MiiPlaza games.
    Anyway, just want to say thanks for official free badge even, like youve said, few 3ds users are interested in this, count me in :-)

    My special Mii Plaza, Camera, Eshop, etc. badges no longer work properly :( They all register as the common decoration badges. I don't know what to do..

    Edit: Nvm. I was able to fix the problem ^^

    I'd like to bump this thread, because it deserves much more love. ;)
    Yeah, I know that bumping is usually frowned upon, I guess I'll also share this to make this post somewhat useful:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16W2ABfj60p-n1i-CdgukiMQ0qHBnk0T4mwtLDKB59BU/edit?usp=sharing
    This spreadsheet shows the names of all badges and sets sorted by their IDs, and this is how I prefer to import them.
    So, if you, for some reason, really want to sort your badges in exactly the same way Nintendo Badge Arcade does, you can use that sheet as a reference.

    What happens if you do this than launch the actual badge arcade? Do you get banned from the service or have the badges removed? Just curious.
