    It seems like the same issue is still occurring. Any idea what else the problem could be?

      I've just done a fresh install from the copy on Drive to test it, and I can't get the mart to freeze on my console. Have you got the official update installed? I'm not too sure what else could be causing that, seeing as only the shop.cro and maybe the code.bin file should have any effect on the marts. You could try deleting and reinstalling the hack if you haven't already.

        Oh, I'll see about the official update then. I'd need to update my 3DS for it but I assume since I've got all my custom firmware right on the main menu that shouldn't be a problem?

        EDIT: Installed the update and it works fine now, thanks!

          Just a note, the documentation doesn't list Ekans as an encounter from the ambush spots on Route 2 but I found one that way. The other ambush encounters seem to be as should be though.

            Turns out that Ekans is a static encounter, so it'll only show up there once. I didn't know where it was used so I didn't edit it.

              Oh, that makes sense. I did notice that none of the subsequent encounters in the ambush spots were Ekans. So it's sort of equivalent then to the Grubbin for the first encounter of Route 1?

                Yeah, exactly like that. I have no idea why Game Freak likes those events so much recently, they don't seem at all necessary.

                  This is sort of a minor thing but I noticed that the levels of the opponents in the Trainer School seven mysteries arc are unchanged. It's a side thing though so it's understandable if it wasn't one of your main concerns.

                    Thanks for letting me know about that; I didn't even know it was a thing until just now. I'll get that fixed later today.

                    EDIT: fix is up now; I've left the Gastly and Drifloon's levels as is but given them some egg moves, and edited Youth Athlete Deedra's team.

                      First of all the hack looks great, nice work! Thank you!

                      Is there a convenient way to play it on citra or a guide on how to make a 3ds or CIA file out of the hack?

                        Thanks!

                        I think this guide looks like the most convenient way to play mods on citra. I haven't tried it myself so I don't know how up to date it is (or if it even still works), but it seems to bypass the need to unpack and rebuild a cia/ROM file, which is the most tedious part of making a hack cia.

                        If that doesn't work the general process for making a cia of the hack is as follows:
                        1. Get a cia/3ds file
                        2. Unpack it using Asia81's 3ds toolkit (use version 9, people have had trouble with the latest release)
                        3. Copy the "a" folder and any cro files from the hack to the romfs folder in the unpacked ROM; overwrite files when prompted
                        4. Similarly, copy the code.bin file to the exefs folder
                        5. Use the toolkit to rebuild the unpacked ROM into a 3DS file for citra
                        You may also need to do something with the official update for the game, as the hack won't run on a 3DS without it installed. I don't know how citra handles game updates, but if it doesn't support them the update can be merged into the ROM in the same way as the hack.

                        Hope that helps! There should be guides around for most of those steps, but I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have regardless.

                              One thing I have noticed however, the shop stocks do not seem to be changed correctly. According to the documents I should be able to buy the EV items in Hauo'oli city but they are not there. The second clerk only sells the usual x-attack and stuff. Same goes for the route 2 mart which should sell all sorts of pokeballs but actually only sells Super potion, Heal Ball, Nest Ball and Luxury Ball. All the other items he sells are the usual X-items

                              Are the items sold only bound to shop.cro file? I definitely replaced it

                                Yeah it's just the shop.cro that controls what's in the shops. Did you do anything with the official update? That comes with its own shop.cro file, so maybe it's overriding the hack's shop changes.

                                  So I haven't actually gotten to the point where this becomes accessible yet, but I was wondering if you'd made any changes to the Hypno and Bewear events in Hau'oli City that are unlocked upon defeating Olivia.

                                    I think that is what is happening then, I installed the 1.2 update in citra via a CIA file. I will try to deinstall it and and put the update into the main game file.

                                    EDIT: Extracting the 1.2 update and including the data into the romhack 3ds file did not work even though it does show version 1.2 in citra. For now I edited the 1.2 CIA file with your shop.cro file. Are there also other parts of the game that are not how they are supposed to be in your romhack? It seems the patch in citra overwrites any files in the main game file.

                                      I've edited the Bewear but didn't know about the Hypno event either, so I'll get that sorted shortly.

                                      The code.bin file (which contains the TM list), and a/0/3/2 (which is game text) are the only other files that clash with the update. Merging these into the update cia is a good idea, and probably the only way to get the hack working properly on citra. The hack won't run properly on a 3DS without the update, and the update overriding the main game is expected (the update wouldn't be very useful if it didn't have priority over the base game), so editing it is the way to go.

                                        I actually also noticed that the documentation doesn't list the encounter table for the cave portion of Lush Jungle, is that unchanged? I can't say I blame you if you didn't know about it, it took me like three play throughs to notice it at all.

                                          That's definitely edited, guess I just forgot to add it to the documentation. There aren't any Pokemon in there that don't also appear earlier in the game, so it's not too important, but I'll get it fixed anyway. Thanks for reporting all of these errors!

                                            I was recently playing Blaze Black 2 and just for fun I tried a Swords Dance Zard, but then I noticed that it doesn't learns Acrobatics (was only in a gen 5 egg event), so I read the Documents of your game and also it doesn't learn, so would be nice if Zard had acrobatics (by tm, of course) to combo with that tough claws :)

                                              Done! That combo should do ridiculous damage, especially seeing as Flying Gems are available.

                                                  I noticed in the level-up move document that some Pokemon don't have the moves listed that are listed under Pokemon changes. Girafarig for example doesn't have levels listed for Hyper Fang, the elemental fangs, or Psycho Boost. I was wondering when it gets those moves, and also if it would be possible to have that document updated to reflect these missing parts?

                                                    You'll have to give yourself the stones you want too; otherwise they're still at the battle tree.

                                                    It seems I somehow managed to revert those changes to Girafarig, so that's now been fixed. I've also updated the level up moves document, so hopefully that will now include all the added moves. Thanks again for letting me know about all these problems!

                                                    Here's Girafarig's level up moveset for quick reference:
