NEW ROMHACK RELEASED - DO NOT USE SACRED SWORD/KING'S SHIELD

BETA RELEASE V. 1, By Kobazco & Phives, with help from Drayano
Works for both Sword & Shield
NO POST GAME
YES, YOU NEED A MODDED SWITCH
Follow here for updates (Twitter)
THIS ROMHACK IS CURRENTLY BEING ENTIRELY REWORKED. AS SUCH, THIS CURRENT VERSION/ROMHACK IS NOT SUPPORTED PAST SWORD/SHIELD 1.0, AND NO UPDATES WILL MADE. I AM USING THIS THREAD TO SHOWCASE UPDATES ON THE REWORK, WHICH WILL BE A MUCH MUCH MORE INDEPTH EXPERIENCE. PLEASE BE PATIENT UNTIL THE REWORK COMES OUT.

NOTICE: I likely will not be updating this mod to work with new patches until all of (or maybe just one of) the DLC is out. When the DLC releases, we will have a LOT more Pokemon to work for in terms of team building and editing wild Pokemon. With that in mind, I hope everyone looks forward to the DLC. Until then if you want to use this mod, please make sure you are on the base version of the game.
Context time! I made popular (But not too indepth) romhacks for SM & USUM, most notably Rising Sun & Waxing Moon. However, this time, things are different! This time I bring to you all a fully featured difficulty hack. Hundreds of Pokemon have had their Hidden Abilities made easily obtainable, stats buffed, abilities buffed, and enhanced movesets! For all of these changes & more, see the gdrive folder with the download and all documentation.

Changes:
  • All important trainers have 6 Pokemon and and are much more difficult. (Hop begins to have 6 after the 1st gym)
  • Important trainers also have manually changed movesets, abilities, natures, and even IVs and EVs assigned. They also have the smartest AI assigned to them.
  • Level curve expected to naturally provide you with high level Pokemon. Trainers will have Pokemon around and usually slightly higher leveled than that of your own. (GROSSLY SUBJECT TO CHANGE, PLEASE RELAY TO ME WHAT THE LEVEL CURVE IS LIKE IN YOUR EXPERIENCE. THIS SHOULD NOT REQUIRE AN INSANE AMOUNT OF GRINDING)
  • Hundreds of Pokemon have had their stats buffed, hidden abilities made available, and enhanced movesets. Some even have type changes, or completely new abilities available.
  • Evolution methods changed for trade Pokemon. See documentation.

Disclaimer & Important Information
  • The post game is currently unedited.
  • The wild Pokemon are currently unedited in terms of level and where they appear.
  • This has been made in mind with the exp share enabled and usage of Max Raid battles to gain exp candies. If you are falling behind in levels, go to the wild area and grind on raids. The no EXP share patch is completely optional and this hack was not made with it in mind.
  • This is a first beta release, please give any and all feedback, especially on the existing level curve.
  • I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BANNED CONSOLES. OBVIOUSLY DO NOT PLAY ONLINE WHILE USING THIS ROMHACK.
Instructions:
  • Download the Pokemon Sacred Sword & Kings Shield.rar in the gdrive folder.
  • Rename the folder in the .zip file to the proper titleid if needed. Sword: 0100abf008968000 Shield: 01008db008c2c000
  • Place this titleid folder in atmosphere\titles or sxos\titles depending on what cfw you use.
  • Launch the game with CFW active!
  • If you want only the trainer edits, go into the romfs folder and delete the folder titled "pml"
Credits:
  • Kurt & SciresM for creating & updating pkNX
  • Phives for doing the majority of the work on the implemented Pokemon changes.
  • Drayano for allowing us to use this Renegade Platinum changes and provide guidance when asked.

Are you going to make the battle tower and galar league trainers much more difficult?
There is no point editing the Battle Tower in my opinion/thats not what this is really for.

The Galar League trainers I all have plans for, as they are a part of post game.

Would it be possible to play this along with the wild battle randomizer posted by the GBAtemp user "Stoned"?
Yes it would for now. Currently I have not made any edits to the wild Pokemon. Key word being currently. I have plans to make changes and of course I have not balanced anything with other mods in mind.

@Kobazco, are you adding randomizer and Shiny buff as well in the hack?

If yes, then please add randomizer and Shiny encounter was buffed up to 50%
That isn't how this works. My hack IS NOT a randomizer. And no, I will not be making any changes to the shiny rate. These are all things you can do on your own if you really want. pkNX can randomize the game for real if you really want it to, at least from what I heard. Please read the entire description I spent a long time typing for this romhack before asking something like this.
