    as you know Project Pokemon's official save editing tool PKHex has Sun/Moon support well some hackers (actual hackers) disagree on the idealology of PP.org one day before S/M's complete release and an official build of PK hex someone hacked the site and did alot of damage (including stealing passwords) here's a quote on their trashed site

    https://projectpokemon.org/

    (sorry if this was already done i skimmed through the USN forum didn't see it)

    Really childish move. I'm certain PP.org will be back up very soon though.

    Indeed.

    It is going to take a while.

    In the mean time, if you are using any passwords that you shared with projectpokemon portal,

    CHANGE THEM NOW.

    Hopefully Project Pokemon will up again soon, because if it's not then we've lost all of the research and dats thst have been collected on the forum over time, which really is a shame. I'm also personally worried that the event database won't come back, because many of the event files on the forum can't be found elsewhere. A couple of years ago I downloaded all of the event files/global link stuff up to gen 5 (gen 6 hacking hadn't taken off yet) and I still have it on my computer, so I could put them here if necessary. I just hope someone has the gen 6 event collection.

    @PP_theSLAYER says he has a backup of the events. Research that was posted on our wiki was unaffected, and we have a semi-recent database backup of the forums, which may or may not include attachments (I've asked our technical admin to check if this is the case). Some newer posts are lost, but the situation is nowhere near as bad as it could have been.

    That's a relief to hear. Since he mentioned that some of the old tools might be lost, I still have some of the mystery gift tools for gen 5 and prior, but i don't know how useful they might be.

    yeah for now the backups I have are on my github, with some odd tools and bunch of events,
    check it out if necessary!

    And I'd also love to be a 3ds homebrewer. So I could keep going with y'all here on the Temp site! Maybe I could suggest some edits for Project Pokemon as well
