    This is excellent! Would there be any way for a feature to merge a PHBank Bank file and a PKSM Bank File together? I've got some Gen 6 stuff in PHBank and only Gen 7 stuff in PKSM.

    Something like that would need to be looked into, however I think having multiple bank files to separate Pokemon such as events from breedjects and genned Pokemon into different banks would be good.

    I know that PKSM has its server to inject Pokemon from external sources, however if it could export Pokemon to an external source as well, I have a neat idea to accomplish multiple banks.

    Thanks! It doesn't do much, but it's easier than opening a hex editor.

    Great work on PKSM by the way!

    Are there any negative consequences for bringing my Hoenn bros to Alola with this?

    That's more of a question for PKSM since this just converts PHBank Bank files to PKSM Bank files.

    Could you make one for phbank gb the conversion code is in pkhex for gen 1 pokemon so it should not be that hard to do.
