    This is assuming you have already extracted your game.

    Download the latest compiled version of PK3DS attached.
    Download OhanaRebirthGotTextures attached.



    1. Open PK3DS and choose tools>Misc Tools> Un(pack)+BCLIM
    2. Drag the garc from a/0/9/4 in the first field while holding ctrl.
    3. When it's done, you'll have 0000.bin - 10422.bin
    4. Drag the texture .bin file to OhanaGotTextures, it will load.
    5. In the textures tab on the left select export (choose location)
    6. Edit the textures with your favorite paint program
    7. Now open PK3DS
    8. Go to Tools> de(Compress)LZ11 and select the .bin file
    9. It will be decompressed and renamed (i.e "dec_01829.bin)
    10. In Ohana choose Tools>BCHTextureReplacer
    11. Go to File>Open and choose the decompressed .bin
    12. Choose replace (replace all) to import your new textures in .png format
    13. Go to File>Save
    14. Go back to PK3DS and open Tools>de(Compress)LZ11
    15. Select your .bin to compress it. (if you get a .lz just rename it to .bin) Replace the old one.
    16. Go back to Tools>Un(pack)+BCLIM and drag you 4_g folder to the second field
    17. Let it rebuild the garc (It can take a while!)

    You can also use the old GarcTool to unpack/repack your .bin files. I've attached that as well.

    Now you're ready to use your edits in game.

    If you appreciate this tutorial, I appreciate a coffee :D

    Any of the pokemon textures in a/0/9/4. Actually, I'm sure it will load any of the compressed bin files if you open them from the appropriate tab. The structure is usually 9 files for each pokemon. 1 model, 2 textures, 6 animations. You only need to decompress/recompress them if you want to edit them.

    I'm sure it works with other compressed textures as well, like trainer textures and stuff.

    I believe it's separated into more than one garc. The model is from 1/4/2 to 1/5/2 for male and 1/5/4 to 1/6/5 for female.

    I compiled the pk3ds as x64 and posted in a different thread. no big deal. The Real Heroes are the ones behind Pk3ds. Great tutorial @Majickhat55 and cool textures.

    a/1/4/2 is nothing. The garc is 0kb that's why it doesn't open.

    Did you export the textures? They should be saved as .png when they're exported
