It’s relatively simple to set up, all the player needs to do is have something that can open up and press a zip file like one wire or 7-zip. The player will then open up PKheX, and open the save file data location and drop it into PKheX. Once the data has loaded, the player can edit their inventory to the maximum amount. When the player is satisfied with the inventory edits, export saves and open Pokemon Brilliant Diamond.

  • Get via the internet
