    I tried editing my Ledian's nature from Modest to Timid however when I check it on Legit.exe it says the pokemon is hacked. Is there something i'm forgetting to do?

    Did you just generate a new PID for the nature you wanted? If you change the PID, the IVs need to change as well (unless it's a hatched Pokemon).

    Why would the IVs need to change? That makes no sense.

    Because in most Pokemon, the IVs and PID are related by some kind of formula. Pokesav has a feature in the Pokemon Edit section that generates a PID for a specific set of IVs. There's also a command-line program at Project Pokemon that will generate PID/IV combinations for you:

    I WOULD NOT RECCOMEND using the built int PID generator in Pokesav...

    Most of the time it doesn't generate a legal PID

    Like you also posted...use SCV's program...each and everytime

    I tried the program and at first on the last check it said unkown pokemon BACE or something. Then when I redid the PID and IVs it says Hacked pokemon. What do I do now?

    Also how do I change gender values and abilities. I.e. Ability 1 to Ability 2

    I've always hated the hassle of PID's and whatnot so I just make hacked pokemon and then breed an egg from those hacked ones. I get the natures I want with the IV's I want and it comes up as perfectly legit.
