It's not every day that we get new consoles. If it were, we'd be an impoverished demographic incapable of partaking in even the simplest of caffeinated pleasures. And while the arrival of the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 were indubitably exciting, they also distracted us from other things, things like the Pokemon community and what they've been doing with Pokemon X&Y's fiddly bits. So, in light of that, here's a quick and dirty recap of what has happened thus far.
About a month ago, Pokecheck owner Xfr and Pokecheck administrator Bond697 dumped and decrypted some of the new Pokemon files. Which, in simpler terms, means they mapped out the games' DNA sequence. It's all a spot of gibberish from a layman's perspective but it's interesting gibberish. Among other things, they found out that:
We Know How Pokemon X & Y's Insides Work
- Box pkxs are now 232 bytes, as opposed to 136 previously.
- Pkxs store the current owner + the original OT for a given Pokemon.
- The encryption on the pkx files works slightly differently.
- Hatched eggs save the moves they hatched with separately for the move relearner.
