    Hello all. Several years ago, I started working on something of a hobby project - a Pokémon save file editor. I thought Pokesav was big, ugly and confusing, and I wanted something functional that also looked nice. Over the years I tried out different approaches, and all the while new and better editors kept being released. So now my primary focus is an open-source library that anyone can use to build their own editor (or whatever).

    Still, I'm making one for fun.



    Please note that at this time this program supports Gen V only. You can find the source code on GitHub. There is also a download page for the save editor here.

    This is free and unencumbered software released into the public domain. This software is in no way affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo, Creatures Inc. or Game Freak Inc, and is created for solely recreational and non-profit use. Pokémon, Pokémon character names, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS are trademarks of Nintendo. Other trademarks are the property of their respective owners. I do not encourage cheating in multiplayer play. I must also emphasize that there will likely be bugs, so I wouldn't advise you use this to modify the save contents of your retail cart... that being said, I have done this, and there haven't been any problems that I've seen.

      Nice Save Editor.
      I've used one for Pokemon Platinum ended up loving my goods.
      Anyways, Is it me or this should be on the Toolbox Section?
      Well, the mods are up to that to that if they'll move it..

      Hey there codemonkey85, I've moved your post to the Toolbox since it seems fitting more over there! Best of luck on the development of your program!

      While this is not strictly a ROM-hacking tool, it fits well enough here, so.. reopened!

        Thanks guys! I just want to reiterate that the whole project is open-source, and I gladly welcome contributions, suggestions, and constructive criticism.

        Does this program have any support for HGSS?

          At this time this program supports Gen V only. Gen IV support may come at a later date.

          UPDATE:

          Today I released v0.5: https://github.com/codemonkey85/PKMDS/releases/tag/v0.5

          I'll save the coveted v1.0 for when you can add / remove / reorder the Pokémon within the boxes and party.

            Is it just me or can this tool not load anything? I've tried two different game saves, one edited to be ".sav", like Pokesav needs, while the other was ".dsv", which is the basic Desmume save file.


            It seemed to load the players name in the bar along the top, but it refused to load any sprites or pokemon data. They were both different versions of Pokémon Black, too! Unless by "Generation V are the only games compatible" you meant "B2/W2 are only compatible", I don't know what's wrong.

              @Absolumont - did you download the release from my GitHub release page (https://github.com/codemonkey85/PKMDS/releases/tag/v0.5)? Are the two .sqlite files present in the same directory as the executable?

              All Generation V games are compatible - B / W, and B2 / W2. The files should be in 512 KB raw format. If you'd like, you can PM the *.sav file to me and I'll check it out.

                Yes, and yes!


                But, the .SQLite files are 0KB somehow...


                I'll go redownload it just to make sure...


                EDIT: okay, I redownloaded and found that the ".SQLite" files didn't appear until after opening the application for the first time. Once again, they show 0KB as their file size. I'm using the Windows version, if that helps you.

                  Haha, whoops. I didn't include the database files in the Windows release.

                  https://www.dropbox.com/s/prkcxrtb9rqlisz/veekun-pokedex.sqlite

                  https://www.dropbox.com/s/52kqqcm47sfdsyz/images.sqlite

                  Download those, replace the 0KB files, and then open the app. Let me know how it goes!

                        It shouldn't matter what region the save file is from. As for support for the Spanish language, I think my database has all the in-game text / names in Spanish, but the UI would need to be translated as well, and I can't do that by myself.

                        Does this cover your question?
