How to use Pokesav for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl: An Idiots Guide to Technology

Picture of How to use Pokesav for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl: An Idiots Guide to Technology
this is an instructable on how to use Pokesav which can be found here. just click on the download pokesav link and a message will prompt to open it. just download it and open it up, and you should get a window that has a whole bunch of stuff that looks like this.

EDIT: For those of you who want to make legit, super powerful mega charged pokemon, go here. It's a pokedex with all the pokemon and stats and everything you need to know. In other words, check out the pokemon you want to create, make only a couple of the stats maxed out for that pokemon. For example:

Raichu = make Special Attack and Special Defence stats really good because that's closer to normality

Garchomp = make Attack stat really supercharged because it can.

DO NOT SUPERCHARGE LEGENDARIES because now, that's just cheap, rigged,and downright virtually imposible.

Oh, and for that link, there's also a whole bunch of goodies that will help you on your pokemon journey and hacking :). Okay, maybe just journey, but things like damage calculator, balanced team tester, etc will help you lots.

Um... you need to go into further detail on how to make them look legal. If I were to use your instructable to create a pokemon and somebody looked at it who was a professional at checking them (I am) they would be able to tell that it was a hack.
Justin Lam (author)  id_kai5 years ago
Well instead of changing all the stats to 999, just change the individual value and effort value to max. or just change certain ones to make it more legit. go to some pokemon list website and make sure the moves, abilities, etc are actually possible with that pokemon. like don't give all your pokes wonderguard because that's a dead give away. same as teaching a magikarp how to fly, thunderbolt, flamethrower, etc.

So does this pokesav work on macs? i downloaded pokesav from pokesav.org but when i opened up the program it went to Font Book probably because there is no application for it. any suggestions? i hav an r4 and i want to put codes on it so i can make a team, get lots of pokemon, and own my friends. :) please respond

ALSO what does fateful encounter mean?
garrett105 years ago
if you leave one of the check\text boxes alone will the left alone ones not effect the game? for example: if I change the name do I have to change every thing else like my ID or pokemon, ect.?

An R4 is a type of flashcart capable of playing .nds files that you can download from the internet. You are able to find some pretty cheap flash carts on dealextreme.com. Types of flashcarts include: R4, Acekard 2, Acekard RPG, and CycloDS (probably the best one out there). Flashcarts are quite useful and I suggest you check one out. If you do buy one and need help contact me at nsidkai@hotmail.com

Help, When I use pokesav, its too big and i can't see it all please help!
Justin Lam (author)  CRAZY JOE6 years ago
what's too big.. the file or the screen
hey thnx for the walk through but how would i go about putting it in my action replay
Justin Lam (author)  logansthought226 years ago
well since i dont actually HAVE an action replay.... and yeah the codes are pretty long so i suggest having separate codes with a couple items at a time (like one code with good pokemon, another code for items and such etc.)

what is a super card or an r4?
awsome6 years ago
What is an R4, anyway?
How come the game crashes every time I look at my new Pokemon? And how come the codes are SO long?
Justin Lam (author)  chicken woman6 years ago
are you suing action replay or R4? cuz if you're using ar, you shouldnt do so many codes at once, maybe just one or two at a time (eg max money, all items, all pokes shiny, etc.) if you're using R$, it SHOULDNT crash, unless you're doing a cheat that totally screws up the game (eg change your location to some random 'mystery zone' spot)
Woah, I didn't know it was this much work...

POKÈMON, GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL!

Woops. What I meant was..

POKEMON, GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL!

You HAD to repeat the whole thing:[

Yes, how come the sad face?
dsman1952766 years ago
