    PHBank is a homebrew which allows to manage a local bank for XY and ORAS Pokémon games, just like the Pokébank, but as a free offline service.
    This homebrew is not intended to cheat (not even cloning). It's just a storage solution.

    The source code is available under the GPLv3 license on github, and the resources are available on github too.

    What this Homebrew can do:
    • Work on o3ds and n3ds!
    • Navigate through the PC boxes of a XY/ORAS save and the Bank boxes.
    • Display a more specific resume per Pokémon (like IVs/EVs).
    • Select one Pokémon (with stylus or buttons) and move it to another slot/box.
    • Select some Pokémon (with buttons) and move them to another box.
    • Swap an entire box content to another one (pc <-> bank).
    • Autocomplete the Pokédex when importing Pokémon to a gamesave.
    • Prompt a dialog to save/exit/backup during the homebrew execution.
    • Export/Import the savedata directly to/from the game, without the need of external tools (/main).
    • Load/Save the bankdata to/from the bank, located in the SD card (/pk/bank/bank).

    How to install it:
    • Just extract the archive at (to?) the root of your SD card.
    • It must contains:
      • The PHBank files /3ds/PHBank/[PHBankFiles].
      • The cia installer in /cia/PHBank.cia
      • The data files /pk/[DataFiles].

    How to import from <= [v1.1.4-beta-a]:
    • Install PHBank normally, see above.
    • Copy the bank file from /pkbank/bank to /pk/bank/bank.
    • You can delete the /pkbank/ folder.

    Controls:
    Everywhere
    • DPad/CPad: Move the cursor inbox, change box, change pc/bank.
    • L/R: Change the current box.
    • LZ/RZ: Switch from PC to Bank and vice versa (can be done with Pad and/or stylus too).
    • Touchscreen:
      • Move the cursor inbox.
      • Change the current box.
      • Switch PC/Bank.
      • Drag & Drop Pokémon.
      • Change the selection mode.
    • Start: Open the savexit menu, for exiting or backing up.
    • Select: Switch the selection mode (Single -> Quick -> Multiple).
    In Single selection mode (Red):
    • A: Select Pokémon / Move Pokémon if one is already selected.
    • B: Cancel selection.
    In Quick selection mdoe (Blue):
    • A: Select Pokémon / Move Pokémon if one is already selected.
    • B: Cancel selection.
    • Y: Swap the current PC box content with the current Bank box content.
    In Multiple selection mdoe (Blue):
    • Y: Activate the box selector (TODO: transform it as a button on screen).
    Todo List:
    • Wonder box ;)
    • Display more specific information per Pokémon (Tabs for contest/met/etc).
    • Enhance more the GUI.
    • When moving Pokémon with the DPad/A, switch the held Pokémon.

    Nota Bene:
    • I only tested this homebrew with Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on a cartridge on a n3ds (9.3+).
    • Not cheat, no kidding.

    Yeah man this is amazing! I only got 150 days left of my Pokemon Bank Subscription and I didn't plan on renewing. Now I have a free alternative! Thank you so much, keep up the good work! :grog:

    I could test for you if this works on Pokemon Y if you wish. Don't know if it's safe or not though.

    I did this because my bank will expired in 100 days... :D

    If you tell me how, I could.

    I guess it's already illegal to read/write the save...
    I'm planning to do a GUI somelike the Pokébank anyway! :3

    The GUI isn't my first focus atm. I'll contact you if I need help. :)
    Like I said. I dunno how to build cia. Just tell me (or give a link) and I could... ?

    As for now, the `pkbank/` folder is located at the root.

    I wonder if it's possible to extract the assets from Pokémon X/Y/OR/AS/Bank to have a preview pokémon feature.
