Hello, I'm new here, a few days ago I thought about modifying Pokémon HeartGold to make it a more entertaining challenge, for this I thought about modifying the Pokémon of the Gym Leaders, Elite Four, Rival and some route trainers (not many), also to change the wild Pokémon that appear on the routes.

So far so good, I downloaded SDSME and got ready to modify.

The problem is that there are some trainers like the Rival, where the attacks appear unchecked, as if implying that it cannot be edited, if I check the attacks box I can change them, and I also included another Pokémon to Rival Team, but once I enter to play the changes do not appear, on the other hand with the trainers that the attacks do not appear unchecked if the changes that I make to the team appear, for example with the Gym Leader Pegasus if it has worked for me to modify his team, but instead with Rival (which is one of the many fights that appears with unchecked boxes in SDSME) the changes don't work, I don't understand why.

I tried another editor and downloaded PPRE but the same thing happens, that is, there are trainers whose options appear unchecked and it won't let me edit them.

For example here, as you can see, it doesn't let me change the attacks, every time I edit a trainer that appears like this (with the attacks unmarked) the changes he makes to his team have no effect (neither add more Pokémon, nor change the levels your Pokémon, or check the attack box and change its attacks). On the other hand, if when looking for a trainer in the list, his attacks do not appear unchecked, the modifications that he makes work in the game.

And in PPRE the same thing, the trainers that have settings that I can't modify like the attacks, although I modify other things (or the attacks by checking the different attacks box) do not show the changes in the game, instead the trainers that come without those boxes grayed out (unusable) if it reflects the changes you make to it later in the game.

Thank you very much in advance for the help.

Apparently, no one knows how to help.

But there are a lot of Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver hackroms where they've modified everything, anything, so there must be a way to change the teams of the trainers that come with the boxes turned off in the various Pokemon Heartgold editing software like SDSME or PPRE.

I don't want to be rude but you don't sound like you appreciate the work done by the people who made the tools and the effort that goes into making these tools. Don't blame the tool for not being able to do anything you want.

Try and wrestle trough this, i hope it helps you to find what you want...

I have not blamed the tools, sorry if it was misunderstood. The tools seem fantastic to me, the problem is that Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver for some reason have trainers that cannot be edited, but there must be some way since there are all kinds of hackroms that have modified Pokémon teams of trainers like the Rival or Rocket soldiers, so there must be a method to achieve it, is what I ask and what I am desperate to know how it is, thanks.

Several days have passed since I wrote the post but no one has responded yet, there must be some way to edit the rival's Pokémon team, because if not, no one would hack Pokémon HeartGold roms where they modify everything, hopefully someone can help .

I can't tell about what everyone' have in mind, but I may guess people don't know, don't care or they didn't like the way you asked for it.
Also they may have disliked about your impatience bumping your thread so many times.

I'd guess you won't try this because I've a feeling you want everything done for you.

Have you tried getting one those hacked versions and learn from there how they have done assuming they've done what you want to do?
Or use those to create your own also assuming those trainers can be modified in those hacked roms.

Fixed, it was silly of me as I wasn't editing the correct trainer, I'm an idiot. You can delete the thread if you want (I don't know how to delete it, I've looked for an option but I haven't found it), thank you very much.
