Wondering if there is a bug with fairy type moves. Trying to use disarming voice on a few pokemon and it's not very effective on lotad and it isn't super effective on riolu or inkay.
Are you using a Popplio with Liquid Voice by any chance? Disarming Voice is a sound move so that ability will make it a water type move.

Are you using a Popplio and is its ability Liquid Voice? Because that would cause this exact situation.

Oh, if you've already built the ROM you'll only need to redo some of the build process.

If you don't have the unpacked ROM files anymore, unpack the modified ROM (follow the first four steps of part of the citra install guide if you don't know how to do this), then download pk3DS from (link removed because it wouldn't let me post). From there all you have to do is run pk3DS, open the folder containing all the ROM files, then click the Wild Encounters button and click "Randomize All" in the window that pops up. There are extra options for the randomizer in the bottom left of this window if you want them. Then you can just rebuild the ROM (step 7 and 8 of part 2 of the citra install guide) and replace the unrandomized ROM in your citra games folder. You won't need to rebuild the game update or reinstall any part of the hack as you've already done that.

If you've still got the files you can skip the unpacking step.
Oh, awesome! Thank you very much, I appreciate it!

Do... certain pokemon have their standard learnsets/type changes in the rebalanced patch?

I got a Cyndaquil and a Shinx early on in the rebalanced version but once they evolved to Quilava and Luxray respectively, they kept their unchanged typings. I put attention into their learnsets from the rebalanced version and it doesn't match the documentation. For example, Quilava should learn Rollout at lvl 20 in rebalanced but for me, at lvl 20, it learned Flame Wheel, which matches with the standard documentation.

The weird thing is, I caught an Elekid and got an Electric/Fighting Electivire, as well as a Rock/Ground Lycanroc with the same learnsets defined in the .txt file for the rebalanced patch.

Are there mixed rebalanced/standard "sets" for the pokemon in the rebalanced patch? Does the lack of national pokedex affect this? I was wondering because both Shinx and Cyndaquil lines aren't numbered in the pokedex in Sun and Moon.

Did you download a prebuilt ROM/cia by any chance? Those changes were pretty recent so you might just have an outdated version if so. If not, that's most likely a mistake; everything in the rebalanced version should have the stats and movesets listed in the documentation for it. The files on my PC are correct, but I'll check the ones on Google drive just to be sure.

Ah! That's probably it then. I did have a patched rom a couple of months ago and I wanted to play it again, so I probably forgot to re-patch it between looking at the documentation and stuff. If there's an older version already patched, would there be a problem if I overwrite the older version with the newest one?
No, that should work just fine. If you're playing on 3DS it'd be a good idea to check that the older version used a code.ips file rather than a code.bin (delete the code.bin file if so).

I seem to have also run into a typings issue. This is on my recently acquired 3DS. Kricketune is not Bug/Normal. I am using the Luma patching of the rebalanced version of Photonic Sun.
Whoops, sorry about that, I've just fixed it. Thanks for letting me know!

Ah okay. So I would need to re-install the files to my SD card correct? It won't negatively affect my current save file/will still recognize it no problem?
Yeah, you can just copy everything over to your SD card again and the all the old files will be overwritten. Updates won't ever impact your save file due to how limited 3DS hacking is, so that won't be a problem.

hello, is this bugged? in the first route where u can ur starter pkmn. in all grasses the pkmn u can get is mix, ex. i want to catch ralts but majority appear are pkmn from grass 1 and 2
Hey, that happens before a certain point in the story, but fixes itself pretty early on. For some reason Game freak has two identical sets of wild encounters for Route 1, and the first set only gets used for a short time. The temporary set of encounters wasn't edited properly and I never got around to fixing it (mostly because I never saw the issue during testing).

How can I get Solgaleo if I'm playing Prismatic Moon? I know in the OG games you need to trade it, and for what I looked in documentation, it's the same here. Any ideas?
You'll need to evolve the Cosmog you get; Cosmoem has a version-based evolution just like the vanilla games, but I switched what it evolves into in each version so that it becomes the opposite version's legendary instead (it should have been that way in the first place IMO). I'd suggest saving just before it hits level 53 though, as I haven't tested that particular evolution method so there's a small chance it won't work properly.

Sweet! What a cool idea you had in there! I'll try it later and update this post with the confirmation! Thanks!!!

Thanks for the hack. I was looking for a version that would not change the stats of the Pokémon and increase the difficulty curve
You're welcome, hope you enjoy the hack!

Hey great work.
Just a couple of things
Lycanroc has only one moveset in the lvl up document. Since there are three forms I wanted to know the different sets for all of them. Like lycanroc midnight learns dynamic punch and close combat as per the Pokemon changes doc but what level. Also, the rockruff I know are obtainable are own tempo ones for dusk and normal vital or Keen eye ones that can evolve into either midnight or midday. But can we obtain wild rock ruff with steadfast that can evolve into lycanroc with their hidden abilities. Cus the midnight forms new attacks seemed to be optimized around it gave no guard but I can't get it unless rock ruff is steadfast .

Hey, thanks!
The other Lycanroc forms do have level up moves listed in the documents, they're just not named very well as I left the names the way pk3DS generated them. Lycanroc Midnight is "Lycanroc 1" and Dusk is "Lycanroc 2".

Hidden abilities for all wild Pokemon can be obtained in the usual way via SOS chaining; there should be plenty of guides around explaining how to do that if you're not familiar with the process.

I have a doubt: If i have a pokémon ultra sun/ultra moon installed (.cia) and a save game with completed game, can I install this hack with no problem or losses in my original ultra sun / ultra moon game?
You can, but the hack will share the save file of your installed .cia copy, so you'll need to make a back up of your save file and then delete it in game before playing if you want to do a fresh playthrough with the hack. It can be uninstalled at any time and won't have any permanent effects once you restore your original save file from the backup.

Hello! I'm following your citra installation guide. Currently I'm on Part Three - Step #6. I used the Hacking Toolkit to extract my update 1.2 cia file (which I downloaded from Ziperto) but some files that are shown in your screenshot are not congruent with mine. (ExractedExeFS, ExtractedRomFS, and HeaderExeFS.bin are all missing) If you know what my issue is, please let me know! Thanks! Excited to eventually play this hack!

Hey, those files are pretty much the entire update, so either that update cia is a bad dump or the version of the hacking toolkit you're using isn't working on your PC. It's a very unreliable tool; some versions will work for some people and others won't. I'd suggest trying to find another copy of the update cia first, and if that doesn't fix the problem, try different versions of the hacking toolkit.

So i found a bug in Photonic Sun where if you try to buy stuff at PokéMart, the first time that you visit the Pokémon Centre with Lillie, the game hangs and you can do nothing. I tested with Prismatic Moon, the bug isn't present in it.
Thanks for reporting this! Is the bug happening in the rebalanced or standard version of Photonic Sun?
