    Based on this site's rules I'd say it's a very clear no. Also, pre-patched ROMs are a very bad idea to begin with.

    Maybe they way they do script for the patch,for example this: https://arstechnica.com/information...y-you-type-can-shatter-anonymity-even-on-tor/

    Its a old article from arstechnica,but you have a good idea why dont give prepatched cias.

    Even anonymity can be shattered your input write from internet.Thats why they dont give the source from Digimon Decode Patch.

    i'm sorry but i don't quite understand what has to do with this. Who'd get tracked? me? my 3DS? Because downloading a prepatched cia on my computer before booping it wouldn't get me such a virus/trojan/keylogger installed i presume

    The decode team made a patch,if they give the source of their work..maybe could be traced.Dont need keylogger only need to know they way they type or the programming skills.Nintendont and similar companies have nasty nature to put lawsuits to everyone harm their copyright content.For example i put this from torrenfreak:

    https://torrentfreak.com/nintendo-c...nce-operation-against-homebrew-hacker-201223/

    In 2020 GBATemp report one their members go jailed thanks to nintendo.It was the creator of freeshop.

    Many times here on GBATEMP members say piracy its a problem of service and price.Nintendo delisted a huge dsi games from their eshop,theres no way to play those titles again.....well you play again those delisted games its to hack your 3ds.If nintendo its very smart they will have a ton of cash dont delist their games and everyone happy.

    Note:They stated they dont give prepatched cia to avoid legal issues,if they dont provide them they can be safe for the ninty&bandai lawyers.

    But who said anything about releasing the source code of their work? doesn't downloading the patch give more access to their work (for someone decided to look thru it, say, nintendo or bandai or whatever) than a prepatched cia? the prepatched cia is literally the same file we all would get when applying the patch, how does it trace back to decode team? I'd understand the team can't distribute that because ROMs and all that. But if someone else does, how is that any different than doing it myself besides saving me the trouble of finding the right rom and applying the patch?
    I'm not arguing i'm just trying to understand here.

    In this quote you asked the source of the patch,im explain the reason why the decode team doesnt provide the source of their patch and dont give prepatched cias.

    Has nobody heard of the streisand effect? If there's demand for a prepatched rom, it will be uploaded and shared somewhere. Playing whack a mole to take it down will only fuel more interest in the game.

    Downloading a pre-patched ROM is a bad idea because
    a) they're illegal
    b) you have a 50% chance of not getting what you actually need
    c) you probably don't download the actual patch, don't read the instructions and then bother people on the Internet with questions already answered by official documentation...

    Seriously, if you really have to pirate the game then at least pirate a clean ROM and apply the patch yourself. >_>

    so is downloading any rom but we all do that at least to some extent, no need to lie to ourselves

    i never got anything different than what was promised when donwloading prepatched games. I usually follow the translation teams as i do here to make sure i have the latest release and such, but besides having to ask for an update when there is one, no issues...

    again, why download the actual patch when someone offers me a CIA ready for install...? i did download the patch and read the instructions tho. learned how to check the hash number thingy and realized my copy of the game wasn't compatible.

    This discussion goes nowhere, thanks for the translation.

    The translator's responsibility is to ensure the patch works on a clean rom of the official release. Anything above and beyond is outside their jurisdiction.

    Raise your BRN stat and fight wild digimon that have the move you want to learn. Your Digimon must be able to use the move you are attempting to learn. The higher your BRN stat and the more times you are hit with the move during that battle, the higher your odds are to learn it when the battle ends.

    and please do be rest assured that no matter how much you go on about it. no one can provide anything here or in PMS.

    Also gotta get ahold this game myself. I do enjoy the digimon titles a lot.

    lol you won't find any. almost all ROM sites only have pre-patched ROM they got from either the team's FB post's comment section or the Reddit thread, the links there already deleted tho

    I don't understand this game. I was trying to get a seraphimon, but my Digimon died as a magnaangemon before I could raise it's stats to evolve. All that time I spend training was wasted. :(

    when your digimon "die" you can store their data and restore it to a new baby Digimon that hatches from an egg assuming it's the same type of Digimon you stored in the first place like when my metal greymon died I chose the yellow Digi egg because I knew that one would hatch a digimon that digivolves to augumon and I restored my data onto that one when you do a data restore they typically gain XP and digivolve faster.. now I have a black wargreymon x
