    This is little updated Guide for everyone who wants a quick update about how and with which tools can you edtit Pokemon Quest.
    Friendly Reminder: This complete editing is still Work in Progress and changes could happen.

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR SAVE!! ALWAS HAVE A BACKUP!

    This complete Guide here is based on this thread and this: https://github.com/Thealexbarney/PqSave

    Tools you need for save edit Pokemon Quest
    :
    • Your Savegame extracted with "CHECKPOINT" Homebrew. Its the "user" file with 512 KB size.
    • Download all needed Files from https://github.com/Thealexbarney/PqSave Instructions and FAQ/Tutorial are also on Github. For everyone who wants to try by itself
    • A Hex viewer or Editor - I personally prefer "010 Editor" or "Notepad++"
    After you extracted the Github Files you should have a folder named:
    PqSave:
    1.PNG

    In PqSave you have a folder called Scripts:
    2.PNG

    If you open this you will see some files:
    3.PNG

    Put your save " 4.PNG " into this Folder.
    Now drag the "user" File on the file "export_to_json.bat" and you should get a new file named 6.PNG . Open this File with an editor Notepad++ or 010 Editor or even the text editor.

    Now you can see a lot of things. Search for your Pokemon. The name of all Pokemons will show up like this:
    5.png

    For Editing your Tickets just scroll down or search for "tickets" You will find this line and can edit it:
    17.PNG

    After you done with editing. Save the File. And drag and drop it into the file "import_from_json.bat" and it should convert it back to "user_new" - just rename it to user and restore this save with CHECKPOINT Homebrew.
    Done. Worked for me and I think for many others.

    You... covered the folder contents with your command window. We can't see what files you have. By the sounds of it though, you're missing the PqSave.exe file in that folder.

    The link given leads to the source files that you compile. Did you download the source files or did you click the Releases tab and download the already compiled and ready to use ZIP file?

    At the moment the only reliable way I know is to get a shiny Pokémon (a legit one), edit its number and then evolve it to fix the weird attack animation (you don't want a Charizard to shoot bubbles).

    Of course this only works for Pokémon that can evolve.

    I wasn't able to re-import the save back to switch usong checkpoint.
    Pokémon Quest now loads forever, and never starts.

    I've tried to edit the save file on a macOS, and I'm on v5.1.0

    I'm on 5.1 and everything is fine - what did you guys edit?

    I feel like it's the MacOS version that might be the problem, I'm on a PC, using Windows 10 and everything's peachy.

    Yeah, didn't work on W10 as well... I'm only trying to edit the tickets count. It doesn't work when editing the json nor running the script to do so

    Would it be possible for you to upload your user or user.json file with the shiny Tangela in it so I can compare it with mine? (I have a shiny Cubone) The PqSave has a json converter. (https://github.com/Thealexbarney/PqSave)

    Yes.
    For reference, this is all you have to do in the future once you download the files from here (https://github.com/Thealexbarney/PqSave) and put them all in a folder. A command window will show up telling you the scripts were applied and a user_modified file will be generated.

    [​IMG]

    Just take user_modified, rename it to user and replace your current save/user file with it in the Checkpoint folder.
