    Hello,

    First of all, I'm new here, so hi everyone I'm hydro :)

    I want to mod the game but under certain tips. Someone told me that I need PKNX but I'm totally noob here so I would need an explanation as detailed as possible please, because I'm a noob and english is not my first language too (I understand it well, but with technicisms I could get lost)

    Firstly, I have the Xecuter SX Pro.

    This is the things I want to make for starting a new game:

    1) I want to make every gym leader and important trainer to have 6 pokemons, and SOME route trainers to have 4, 5 or 6 pokemons, and some double battles too.

    The fire leader has to have 3 additional fire pokemons, Roxy only dark pokemons, and so.

    1st Gym: up to level 35
    2nd Gym: up to level 35
    3rd Gym: up to level 50
    4th Gym: up to level 50
    5th Gym: up to level 60
    6th Gym: up to level 65
    7th Gym: up to level 70
    8th Gym: up to level 75

    In addition, I would like to know if it is possible to BAN some types on a certain Gym.

    For example, if first gym is "Grass" type, then "Fire, Flying, Ice, Bug" should be banned. If third gym is fire, "water, rock" should be banned.

    2) I want to make "gift" pokemons gigantamaxable. What I mean with "gift pokemons" are that Toxel a woman gives you on the nursery on Route 5, or the kanto Meowth that a boy trades with you on the Grass Gym.

    So if you receive a toxel from that woman, if he evolves into toxtricity, this pokemon can gigantamax.

    Also I want to make all wild pokemon (wich can gigantamax of course) that you encounter, like a wild rokidee, if you train him and evolves into a corviknight, then this corviknight can gigantamax.

    3) I want to add some pokemons that are in the game code like alola and kanto starters, some pokemons that are versión exclusives (I have sword) like tyranitar, the ponyta, etc, to appear in certain places, and make gengar and lapras able to gigantamax too (they are shield exclusives and I want to have their gmax forms on sword, but if you caught them wild, not in raids)

    4) I want to make some variations on the stats of some pokemons.
    For example: if you find a shiny shiftry, this shiftry base stats are 530 and not 480.
    Golurk base stats to 540, and Primarina 490. (Just example)

    5) I want to edit the shiny ratio:
    For example, I want to make you can ONLY find one shiny noibat, in a certain place, and the chance is 5%. That shiny noibat has custom stats.
    Also the shiny ratio for the rest of pokemons is 5%.

    6) I want to edit some textures, for normal and shinys.
    For example, I want to make the toxel that is a gift (route 5) to be BLACK.

    I know this is a lot of stuff but I would love to know all of this step by step if someone can help me.
    I know I have to "dump" the game and use PKNX, but I don't know what this means of how can I start.

    Thank you very much and Greetings.

    Unfortunately pknx won't do what you want, it can perform basic game modifications, what you want to do is create new scripts and rules for game programming. PkNX does not do this.

    Hello, what is what PKNX can NOT make? Because if I understod correctly, I can change the trainers to have 6 pokemons, doublé battles and the wild pokemons stuff, right?

    PS: I have 8.1.0, SX OS and AutoRCM. I'm finding troubles to extract my keys (because I have AutoRCM turned on). Is there any way where I can download the keys?

    You can get your own keys by using Lockpick RCM, boot it up through tegra and boom got your own keys. If you dont wanna do that, then google is your friend

    I used Lockpick to get my keys. Now using nxdumptool, do I just need to dump the exefs and romfs folder?
