    NOTE: If you are using the Homebrew Launcher on firmware 9.3 or higher, you can skip any SaveDataFiler steps, and instead follow what is quoted below.
    A fairly short tutorial on how to get infinite Picrites on the new free-to-play Pokemon game.

    What You'll Need
    • Pokemon Picross (duh)
    • SaveDataFiler (or another way to extract and import your save)
    • HxD (or another hex editor)
    Step 1:
    Start a file and get some Picrites. You get plenty from the tutorial world.

    Step 2:
    Extract your save. The ID on SaveDateFiler for the EUR and US (NA) game is 017C1. I'm unsure of other regions. Once highlighted press Y to export save to SD.

    Step 3:
    Open the "all.dat" file in HxD.

    Step 4:
    Go to Offset 00000B40. The offset is shown on the left side of the screen if you're unsure as to where you should be looking.

    Step 5:
    Edit the four numbers highlighted to FF FF. The values shown below will be different since we likely don't have the same number of Picrites.

    [​IMG] -> [​IMG]

    Step 6:
    Save your edit in HxD and put your newly saved file "all.dat" back on your SD in the correct folder of Pokemon Picross (X:\filer\UserSaveData\20151205133407\000017c1\) -> 20151205133407 is a date/time stamp, so will be different.

    Step 7:
    In SaveDataFiller, under the tab "User" search again for "017C1" and when highlighted (yellow) press R+X to delete the secure value

    [​IMG]

    Step 8:
    Now go to the tab "SD" and select "000017c1", when highlighted press "A" to import your save, then press Home button to exit SaveDataFiller and start Pokémon Picross.

    [​IMG]

    Step 7:
    Enjoy the game. If you want to support the people that made it, buy some Picrites in the store or something.

    Worked great for me, here's hoping it'll save a few people long waits between levels ^^ Let me know if there are any issues!

    EDIT: Although the game says 9999, I believe doing this actually sets your Picrite count to 65535 (the value of FFFF when you convert it to decimal). So yeah, you probably won't run out.

    EDIT 2: Thanks to @DjoeN for the clearer instructions ^^

    The title id 017C1 is the same for NA systems.

    Yeah, the save_manager.3dsx homebrew doesn't like to launch Pokémon Picross unfortunately, so I can't extract it right away.
    Wouldn't mind trying another time though.

    Bummer. I literally have no way to play it at the moment, as I spent all of my picrites before I knew I have to give 50 picrites to go to a new town lol

    The only way is either to get more picrites by completing daily puzzles or delete your save file and start from the beginning!!!

    Or delete the game from your system and forget it exists.

    I love Picross, but I hate f2p, so this would be great if there was a way to actually access the save file.

    Does this work on a .3ds version of the game? Can't find that Title ID.
