Programming Trigger's PC (LEGIT Gen 3 PokeBank/ItemBank and Save Manager Tool)

I play Gen 3 alot and I decided hoarding Pokemon and items was a pain when storage space was so limited, that and trading takes forever. So I created a PokeBank-like program for hoarding, trading, and managing Pokemon, Items, Pokeblocks, Mail, and Decorations.

Trigger's PC is a tool designed for legit purposes. There really aren't enough tools for legit-play out there sadly. However, note it does extend some of the boundaries of the game to increase replayability and customization.

Known Bugs:
  • None.
v1.0.1.1 Release Changelog (7/18/16 8:05PM):
  • Fixed Gender Bytes for 87.5% Male, 12.5% Female Pokemon. About 2% of the Pokemon with this ratio were showing up as female when they should have been male.
  • Added Open Learnset in Bulbapedia to the Dropdown in the Pokemon General Tab.
  • Inserting and Duplicating a box in Manage Your PC Window now scrolls the new box into view.

  • Added Recalculate Stats button to Pokemon settings to facilitate the "Box Trick".

To correct the extra experience either load the game with the Pokemon anywhere other than a GBA Party in Trigger's PC or use the new Recalculate Stats button. (Pokemon affected by this bug will have a blue to white gradient in their experience bar.)
  • Added Event to obtain the unobtainable Enigma Berry. You must have beaten the Elite Four and have the first 40 berries in your game. If achievements ever come out this will be replaced with one.

  • Removed the warning about switching genders in RSE.
  • Fixed anything searching/counting all Pokemon in a game not including your party. This would have effected renaming a trainer as well, if this has happened to you just rename your trainer again as it only compares the IDs and not the name/gender. (This bug has only been present since so if you did this previously you'll be fine.)
  • Hid the "View in Pokedex" button that's been here since the beginning and never done anything.

  • This also means Pokemon in the purifier are now affected by the trainer rename as well as Pokemon Searching.

  • Can no longer put Eggs in the Daycare.
  • Can no longer give items to eggs when using the Inventory's give item feature.
  • Removed the give item right click menu option on Pokemon because it's outdated.
  • Fixed a crash when you clicked on a move slot when the summary panel didn't have a Pokemon loaded.
  • Fixed bug and crash caused by picking up a pokemon, then switching it, and then causing it to force drop. Before the Pokemon didn't know where to be placed and would cause an error.
  • Picked up Pokemon will now be placed where the first Pokemon was picked up in the switch chain, if the game cannot contain the new picked up Pokemon then it will attempt to place it in the same game it was stored in if needed.

  • (Fixed this time) Default wallpaper now shows for Pokemon box games using the new wallpapers.
  • Loading a corrupted game will now show a message box about the error and load Your PC instead to prevent a crash. It will not remove the save.
  • Pokemon Box saves no longer show [PKMNBOX] after the name. I guess it was kind of silly. They're now also labeled "Pokémon Box" now.
  • Made sure all of the popup windows would center on the main window and wouldn't have a taskbar icon.
v1.1.3.0 Beta Changelog (5/30/16 11:05AM):
  • Pokemon Box can now load selected wallpapers and box names.

  • (Failed to implement) Default wallpaper now shows for Pokemon box games using the new wallpapers.

  • Can now trade Colosseum/XD Colognes between each games and Your PC. (Before you couldn't because they're technically different items IDs in each game)

  • Fixed Incorrect Ribbons on XD Pokemon. It's recommended that you retrade them from a backup of XD.

  • Can now view mail and send it to other games. Writing mail will come later. (Trigger's PC comes with one piece of mail from me)
  • Added a bit more security checks for moving Pokemon incorrectly. You can no longer release your last Pokemon in your party. Also now that mail is added I realized it acts strangely when stored in the party and thus I cannot safely allow switching Pokemon or removing the mail from them unless done all at once.
  • Fixed a crash when using Item Evolve if you had no games added.

  • Removing a game save does not ask you to save it if changes have not been made.
  • Default Trigger's PC game name is now "Your PC". It's silly to imply it's my collection when the user owns it.
  • Dialog Windows for sending anything to other games all share a setting of the last game they were viewing. Now repeated sending of stuff should be easier.
  • Fixed an assortment of issues with data from Colosseum and GBA Pokemon being messed up when switching between platforms. You may want to retransfer them from your backups.
  • Did reworking with handling text and converting between English and Japanese. Colosseum games should play nicer with Japanese text.

  • Removed the evolve menu item in the drop down on Pokemon. (That was not the actual evolution feature but a debug feature from before the evolutions were added to the database. It would incriment any pokemom's Dex ID by 1.)
  • Added Japanese support to Colosseum saves.
v1.0.1.0 Beta Changelog (5/22/16 10:00PM):
  • Evolve your pokemon! Any pokemon that evolves through trading (with or without an item) or with a stone may now be evolved in the program. You even get a snazzy evolution scene to watch.
  • Added support for Pokemon cries. If you place a folder called "Cries" containing wavs or mp3s of Pokemon cries labeled by their dex id in the "Resources/Audio" folder Trigger's PC will use them in evolution scenes if you have the program unmuted. You can also play the Pokemon's cry manually on the pokemon summary viewer.
  • Added volume and muting support. The game is muted by default so that people don't get an unexpected surprise.
  • Added Japanese support for GBA games and Pokemon. Games now have a Japanese Game checkbox that will allow the games to read the character encoding as Japanese characters.
  • Trigger's PC now detects if changes have been made to any of the loaded save files from outside the program. If this happens it will ask if you would like to reload everything and lose your saved changes (for legit purposes).
  • Trigger's PC now knows if changes have been made to any saves and will no longer ask to save even when changes have not been made. (Change detection is very picky and doing anything in the program that results in the same outcome as before will still mark the game as changed)
  • Fixed a crash when unmaximizing while in the Pokemon tab.
  • Fixed a crash when viewing (possibly only Japanese) Colosseum Pokemon.
  • Fixed Currency owned not displaying when first opening the send currency window when not in the Trigger's PC save.

  • Fixed a few Pokemon name misspellings and gave Superpower the correct move info.
v1.0.0.0 Beta Features (5/20/16 9:30PM):
  • Save Load all Gen 3 GBA save files. (All files stay loaded in the tool at the same time, Colosseum is slightly supported but can't save and XD isn't supported at all, both will be implemented soon.)
  • Trade Pokemon, Items, Pokeblocks, and Decorations between games or hoard them in Trigger's PC.
  • Trade Currencies between games.
  • Change a Pokemon's nickname no matter who owns it.
  • Replace the ball that a pokemon was caught with. (Consumes the selected ball)
  • Browse your saves in a clear, quick, and easy to use interface.
  • Fully Wipe the EVs of a Pokemon if you don't like how they turned out. (Probably the most illegitimate feature if you consider it one.)
  • View ALL information about a Pokemon from Hidden Power to Wurmple evolution.

Wow, that looks amazing!

Seems to be exactly the kind of tool that someone like me would want. It allows to make some things easier (such as transferring items) yet it's not outright (boring) cheating à la 'let's just set the number of Master Balls to 99'. Gen 3 really is rather cumbersome in some regards, and it's nice to be able to do things a bit more quickly sometimes.

(To be honest, I am still not sure whether I would actually use it for things such as item transfer, but it already helps to know that the options exists. I have so many items spread on so many different games, and it would be nice to hoard them all on one game without copying them or using cheatcodes for unlimited supply etc.)

For example, I really like how changing a Pokémon’s ball consumes that ball (even though I would never use that feature myself as it is already too much cheating for me). It gives you more options but it simulates some game effort. Great idea! Also a big thumbs-up for the design. Things such as sprite switching show that you have paid great attention to detail.

And last but never least, it is always so good to see that there's still others out there who play and enjoy Gen 3 as much as I do, and who are willing to put an amazing amount of effort into making the Gen 3 experience more fun for themselves and others. :)

Amazing work; can't wait to see more updates in the future! :)

I know that you're working on Colosseum and XD at the moment. I’d love to get support for Box in any form, if possible. There's no save manager/editor whatsoever for Box, afaik, so I assume it must be rather complicated. I just think it'd be nice to be able to look through IVs on Box. Gen 3 makes it so hard to figure out IVs … sigh.
Thanks I really appreciate the feedback. :)

As for sprites just you wait. I'm gonna add an option to pick and choose between RSE and FRLG for each sprite that's different.

And as for Pokemon Box sadly that's not very likely to ever get working. The only reason I was able to read GameCube saves is because of the source code from PkmGCSaveEditor. Otherwise I never would have been able to read them. My best hope is Pokemon Box is encrypted or stored in a similar fashion to either Colosseum or XD. I will give it a shot in the future. As I've already gotten another request from somebody who has more real world Pokemon stored on numerous Pokemon Box saves than he knows what to do with.

Good news. I've figured out the Pokemon Box file structure and support is coming! I'm already able to read every Pokemon in the program.
This is a neat project. Looking forward to seeing it grow in functionality and stability.
Thanks. As for growing it's actually getting pretty close to exiting beta. After that I may implement smaller features and then take a long awaited break before eventually coming back to maybe do gen 2 then gen 1 support.
amazing tool, thanks for all the effort. Maybe some support to trade online? I read that you program can modified secret bases of emerald, thats true? can we add trainers to it?
Sorry for my bad english.
1) I really do want to do online support for trading etc but I have no experience programming with networking. The other issue is either you would have to port forward to the person you were trading with or I would have to get a server to host everything which I won't be able to do.

2) Yup. You can do anything you want to the trainers. :D
Feature for show faded images of the required Pokémon in living dex mode on Trigger´s PC does not work
for regular boxes
Only the unown show the faded images
Thanks in advance
Two other things.
1. Do you have plans to implement Move Tutors? I've love to be able to teach moves like Body Slam quickly and efficiently from the boxes, in addition to the TMs/HMs.
2. Could you make a feature to change box backgrounds in bulk?

Move Tutors is definitely on the Todo List. How it would work is it would ask which game you'd like to consume the tutor from or ask if you'd like to pay in Battle Points if it's applicable. I may require that your game has beaten a certain number of gyms or the elite four in order to use the move tutor feature for a specific game.

As for the second one that's a maybe. I'd need a good method for selecting multiple boxes at once and that may require making a new window for it. I could always modify the manage boxes window to work the same way however.

Also a final heads up is I'm not actually working on the tool right now. When I come back to it though I'll definitely look towards working on these. :)
This is a very interesting tool, I'm currently playing through the Gen 3 games at the moment and your tool sounds perfect for what I'm trying to do. I wish there's more external tools out there that support these instead of just give you tools to outright cheat your game.
