    First, you're gonna need PKSM and PCHex++. Homebrew and CIA both work.

    Next you're going to want to deposit your pokemon into the PKSM bank, save bank changes, save and exit.

    Now open up your gen 6 game, (Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, X or Y) with PKSM and get the desired pokemon from bank and put it into your box, save bank edits save and exit.

    After that, open up PCHex++ and select the game you're using. Locate the gen 7 Mon and edit to your hearts content. save and press start to exit.

    Now, open up PKSM once you're done and first deposit the pokemon to bank from your gen 6 game, and save bank edits, start to save and exit.

    Now open up either Sun or Moon, and get the pokemon from bank to your PC.

    Side note: this is just a temporary solution until PKSM supports pokemon changing and move editing. This will not be able to give moves new to generation 7, as those will be blank.

    Mini F.A.Q.
    Why does this work ?
    Its because of the way its handled, the pokemon retains data that PCHex can read and write to without issue, and keeping the Pokemon's integrity.

    So basically PCHex just needs sprites? Judging by the screenshots it seems to already support Gen 7 without an official update in a long time.

    No. It can just read the data given and write to it. If it needed sprites trop kick wouldn't be blanked out

    This sounds long and a waste of time to be honest. I've been using PKHeX for Moon just fine with no problems. lol

    I wonder what would happen if you dumped your SU/MO save and inject it in ORAS card then edit it with pchex++

    I just heard about PKSM recently.
    Pretty nifty app I gotta say.

    So basically this combines both PCHex++ and the PHBank app?
    Also, I've seen that it is currently in 3.1.0, and seeing from some of the latest commits, there are even more ways to edit Pokemon upcoming, anyone has a CIA build of the latest commits made to the repo?

    And last question, can I edit my party with this? :P
    I only saw boxes in there.

    PKSM is really great, but I'm not really liking how the editing works (for natures and such where you need to tap multiple times ; sometimes you need to tap multiple times for it to even change once)

    Other than that, I've got no complaints.

    I'm don't think you can edit Party Pokemon (correct me if I'm wrong tho)

    i put a gen 7 mon on the offical pokebank using this trick took it of poke bank and put it into pksm and all the data was still correct when i put it back in moon

    would nto read because of new memcrypto and it would say corrupted in your oras game yet you can inject a sun save file into moon and it will work fine but flags will be broken
