The Pokemon Ranch thing available on Wiiware is pretty useless, mainly because it links deposits/withdrawls to trainer IDs, meaning that you can't deposit pokemon from one game and withdraw them from another, so it totally defeats the purpose of even using it. I was wondering if anyone's thought about hacking it so that it'll let you withdraw pokemon to any game, I have no idea if it'd be easy/hard to do, just wondering if anyone's tried/thought about doing it. It'd making trading between games easier for people who only have one DS is all...

Yeah, I was hoping it had been hacked so that I could transfer my pokemon from Pearl and then copy them to Platinum when it comes out. Japan actually got an updated Pokemon Ranch for Platinum but it still locks pokemon to trainer IDs...

Well you could alsways alter the game sav then change it back using Pokesav to change the secerate id and the trainer ID

Well the idea would be to get it working on real copies that can't be used with Pokesav, plus, most flashcarts can't connect to the Wii anyway.

You can use Pokesav on any .sav file for D/P.
Depending on the flash card is you on prob for getting one that is not supported by the wii.
Yes it does work on real copies altering it with Pokesav.

And you don't think dumping, editing and re-upping the save file from a retail cart is overkill just to transfer to the ranch? If I was going to do that I could just manually extract the pokemon from the D/P savefile and manually insert them into Platinum (if Pokesav even supports Platinum, I don't have a clue) bypassing the Ranch entirely. The point of the thread was to discuss whether or not turning this useless "game" into something useful was at all feasible.

Some sort of basic homebrew app could find the save file in NAND, then patch each Pokemon's original ID, etc. to new values entered by the user. That seems like it would be the most direct method.

Hmm, as far as I'm aware there are issues with messing with Wiiware saves via NAND, aren't there? Something to do with the fact that they aren't disc-based, so the current tools don't cater for them when you try to put them back on the Wii or something, I'm sure someone can explain it better than I can. Also, I think the game uses the secret unviewable trainer ID's that can't be seen without Pokesav, which would make it tricky for retail copies. You're right, though, that probably would be the most practical solution.

In my opinion, I doubt that anyone will hack this game, because most people put more priority into things like custom system menus and gamecube backup loaders than hacking a pokemon game. Just my thought/guess.

I got pokemon ranch mostly for the kid to play with(throwing and playing with pokemon in 3d is right up her alley, pokefanatic).

I found it really lame and restrictive and only letting you transfer pokes back to the cart they came off. I wanted to give her some of mine but couldn't cause we only have 1 DS. we're getting her one of the DSi come her next birthday, so no big deal.

But I also plan to by platinum once its released. i have over 500 pokemon stored on my copy of pearl. it is going to suck transferring those to platinum once its released. if pokemon ranch could be hacked to let you transfer to any cart or hack the trainer IDs that'd be awesome.

just buy it and DL it on the wii. then you won't go wrong there. This forum is about hacking the wii not Wii-WAREZ. doh

Like the guy who responded said, I want to be able to trade from my old game to Platinum when it comes out but don't own two DS'es, so I thought I'd check to see if Ranch had been hacked to allow trades... yknow, like the original Pokemon Box on GC. It has nothing to do with piracy; like the other guy said earlier, with the right flashcart you can just use Pokesav and bypass the Ranch entirely, but for those of us with retail carts and no means of dumping the saves it's a hassle. There's obviously a little interest in it being done, but I don't think anyone that would know how cares enough to do it, which kinda sucks.

Do you realize that you dug up a topic from over 2 YEARS ago?

Anyway, this hack never happened. If you have an AR and a way to dump your Pokemon save, you can move them that way. That's how I moved my Platinum Pokemon into White.

Well it looks like nobody was actually working toward hacking it two years ago when this thread was last active.

So you probably shouldn't hold your breath.
