    I am calling forth the community to help with this project

    I am looking to reverse engineer the SOS/Rescue/Thank You Mail passwords that the game "Pokemon SMD" Generates when you have completed those required steps (Fainting/Rescueing/Thanking) etc and I would like you people to contribute passwords to this cause

    And also please no QR Codes, as they are harder to work with

    Click Here to Submit a Password

    Click Here to View the List of Passwords

    I'll be posting my findings below this line here in this post so check back occasionally
    Any kind of password from Super Mystery Dungeon is welcome but please provide all relevant information that will help us to perhaps find similar patterns in the way the passwords are generated and maybe we can fully reverse engineer and create a program that can generate these (And Conversion between SOS and Rescued as well)

    Theories (These are not 100% Confirmed)

    • SOS Codes store only the Seed of the Dungeon Layout and use it to generate the floors
    • SOS Codes store only ID numbers for Pokemon to be rescued
    • SOS Codes Encrypt the entire Team name
    • Rescue Codes use the SOS Code in some form to generate the Code to activate the rescue
    • It's entirely possible that the game interpets the @ symbol as the Bullseye symbol in game
    100% Confirmed

    • List of Available Letters for Rescue Passwords
    • The game has the same amount of letters for use as the other games in the series
    • We have discovered something intriguing about the passwords
      It seems that a bunch of items (Completely randomly selected by the developers it seems or at least sets of items separated from the same Item Type?) are bundled into a set of groups which each have a seed attached to them that will tell the game how to generate the SOS Password so far we have discovered 2 sets of items that relate to each other I'll post them below this

    I'm not 100% sure but it looks like if it starts with an 8 the floor only has 2 digits
    For example:

    7F, 2F and the other 2F start with 8 and they all only have 2 digits

    However B2F has 3 Digits and is the only one that doesnt start with 8.
    Can someone Check this?

    If someone could do me a favour and do the following
    Before you do it you need to have a Thank You Mail you haven't sent yet

    1. Create a Save Backup of your Super Mystery Dungeon game

    2. Send the Thank You Mail via Password/QR Code without an Item Attached

    3. Submit the Password using this Link

    4. Restore your Save Data

    5. Send the same Thank You Mail via Password/QR Code with an Item Attached

    6. Submit the Password using the same Link as above and list what item you attached as well

    7. Restore Save Data if you want

    Also if you could do it with multiple items that would be awesome! Thanks

    *bump* Sorry for double post, But we have made a rather important discovery about the SOS/Rescue/Thank You Mail codes and how they might possibly work
    Please see the first post for details about it
