Pokécheck owner Xfr and Pokécheck administrator/Project Pokémon Super Mod Bond697 have dumped, decrypted, and documented the Pokémon X and Y Pokémon file format.
The Pokémon files have been given a new file type, PKX, to match their new format. They've grown quite a bit both in size and the types of data they contain. With the limited amount of information currently available, access to PKX files provides some new insights into how this latest generation of Pokémon titles functions internally. There is more information to come as they continue work on updating Pokécheck for gen 6.

A new Mystery Gift event for Pokémon X and Y has been announced!
For a limited time, copies of Pokémon X and Y purchased at Tesco stores in the UK will include a serial code which can be used to receive a package of 12 Quick Balls. Games that have the serial code will be marked with a sticker, so be sure to check. It has not been announced how long the codes will be redeemable, but more details are sure to be available in the packaging.
Discussion thread for this event
Event Gallery Entry
See this thread for details on contributing Gen VI events
Summer has come to an end, and all of the Mystery Gift events mentioned in the previous news post have been added to their pages in the Event Gallery
. There are still a few Generation V events that have not yet been contributed (see this post for details
), but with the release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y now less than two weeks away, Generation V is coming to a close.
As a few Generation VI events have already been announced, I've set up a basic page in the Gallery to detail their information
. Due to a lack of details on these unreleased events, it is very barebones at the moment. The details of each event distribution will be filled in as they are confirmed and graphics will be redone as the X and Y Mystery Gift visual style is revealed. The page will also be broken down into sections by language once more events are announced.
For the time being, this page will not host any Mystery Gift files for insertion as there is most likely still a very long road to go before save editing and file extraction/insertion is possible.
Please see this thread in the forums if you are interested in our plan for cataloging save files and Events, and/or if you would like to contribute to that plan.
A recap of all the Event contributions from this summer is available here
As always, the Project Pokémon Event Gallery is a community project. So thanks to all who participate!
Dear friends, visitors, and affiliates,
Pocket Review has been having some downtime for the past month due to inactivity. I've been working on various projects for the past 3 months. These projects will be unveiled soon. Pocket review is looking for staff members. Sadly I had forgotten to update the site from the last few posts that mentioned the update, I'll get to that tomorrow. Affiliate, do not remove any buttons from your site concerning the inactivity. Pocket Review will be up and running by this Friday. We need some volutneers, contact me: pokereview [AT] gmail [DOT] com . Have a good weekend, and goodnight.
In recent months, this community’s Event news has been confined to the forums. Those of you who occasionally read the Events forum will likely know most of this information already, but the numerous Pokémon Mystery Gift events happening this summer seemed worthy of a front page news post.
With Generation V coming to a close this October, it seemed that the only event distributions this summer were going to be the Mewtwo
and Red Genesect
events at this year’s Pokémon movie in Japan. However, there has been a recent explosion of announcements of distributions in all regions happening over the next couple months.
The two movie events are still live in Japan and have been followed by a Wi-Fi Jirachi
distribution, a unique Jirachi
currently being distributed during the Tohoku Pokémon Center’s Tanabata festival, and a Singing Eevee
that was distributed at a concert event for the Pokémon movie’s theme song and to players who bought the single release of the song. All of the pgf files for these Mystery Gifts can be found in the Japanese Generation V Event Gallery
. Later in August, a new distribution at the Pokémon Centers will begin, giving one of four different anime-based pokémon
to each game during each of four distribution periods. At the Pokémon Game Show on August 17 and 18, players can obtain one of seven pokémon used by a Pokémon League Champion
from each of the games in the main series.
events also took place in Korea; one earlier in July, and one currently running via Wi-Fi. Wonder Card files for both can be found in the Korean Generation V Event Gallery
The 2013 Pokémon Video Game World Championships will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada on August 10 and 11. A Smeargle
with a moveset ideal for catching pokémon will be distributed on both of these days, presumably to all languages of Black, White, Black 2, and White2. If you plan on attending Worlds this year and would like to contribute this Wonder Card to our Gallery, please bring all seven languages of the games if you have access to them. The pgf files can be submitted in our Contribution Thread
The dates vary by country, but starting at the end of August, there will be three distributions at participating retailers in the US, Canada, Latin America, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and Australia. A shiny, color-variant Dialga
will be distributed during the first period, followed by a shiny Palkia
and a shiny Giratina
. It is highly likely that they will be distributed to each of the American/European languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish) at each location, so potential contributors should be prepared.
The Team Rocket Meowth
event, which was previously distributed in Japan and Korea, was distributed at Pokémon Day in Italy on July 13 and 14 (also presumably to all American/European languages). We are still waiting for a contribution on this Wonder Card, however it is very possible it will be distributed at the Pokémon Day in Germany (10 dates between August 31 and October 12) and Switzerland (September 21).
In total, we are looking at 23 unique pokémon, and a potential grand total of 56 Wonder Cards for these last months leading up to the release of Pokémon X and Y and the end of Generation V Mystery Gifts. All in all, it’s a good summer to be a Pokémon player.
