    If you don't mind, all I'm asking for is a Pokemon Omega Ruby save file that does not have Virizion caught, I want to shiny hunt it but I've played through the game so much that I can't get through it. I will change everything else. TY in advance!

    EDIT: I will also accept a Powersaves file if anybody has that

    I am assuming if you are asking for a save file you have homebrew access.

    you can extract your own save file and use a program called PKHex to edit what pokemon you have. Then you can inject the modified save into the game.

    Yes I do, but the thing is I've already caught my Virizion and if I say I didn't in PKHeX it will break my game. trust me, I've tried :P

    how does it break your game? what happend when you tried to do that?

    make sure you are exporting a .sav file not a .pk6

    maybe the problem is something else, or one of the pokemon changed in PkHex has something invalid.

    I'll try again to change the flag saying "defeated and caught Virizion" off again but I expect the same results

    EDIT: I can't even enter Pathless Plains

    try using PCHex to edit pokemon. It is a pokemon editor that can be launched from the homebrew channel.

    You don't understand, I want to shiny hunt it, not just generate it using a hack

    If you want to remove the pokemon, PCHex should be able to do that as well.
    Or I might just be getting confused on the problem. sorry.

    Seems he/she wants to be able to battle Virizion again so he/she can soft-reset to catch it in shiny form. Even though he/she has already completed the encounter.

    Yes exactly, thank you. I already caught it when I wasn't into shiny hunting so now that I want to soft reset for the shiny form I can't.

    Did you only uncheck the caught flag? There are two flags which you need to uncheck. What version of pkhex did you use? And is that the only value that you modified in your save?

    As far as I know there's no way reset that encounter from save editing. There might be, but I just don't know it. I'd send you my Omega Ruby save, but I'm fairly sure I've already encountered Virizion (I'll check to be certain though).

    Edit: Already caught em, sorry.

    did you remove the pokemon from the pokedex via PKHex?

    Pokedex entries shouldn't cause any issues with legendary encounters.

    I have experience using PKHex and PCHex to edit pokemon for my brother, but I myself don't play pokemon often.
    So I don't have complete pokemon experience. I asked my brother and he says it is probably impossible without restarting the game.

    Not sure why it's not working for you, but here's my save, not sure if Virizion in specific works, but I just unchecked all of the capture/defeat flags and I can fight everything so far without issues.

    EDIT: Not sure if the time in OR/AS is synced or something, but I seem to be unable to revert the date back to Thursday to encounter Virizion, otherwise, I can encounter cobaltion fine

    It's two edits (the capture flag and the encounter flag)... I just tried it on a few things I have caught before and it works without errors... The likely cause is either something being corrupted (which can probably be solved by restoring a save, opening it, and saving again), or rom corruption (most likely not the case).
     
    Aletron9000 and fodder like this.

    Thanks so much! I'll give it a shot!

    EDIT: I get the red star flagging me to pathless plain but I do not get the message, nor when I interact with the portal. the encounter
