This mod changes the wild Pokémon of Route 1 to be the starters with game assets available, both in overworld encounters and in the hidden spots of grass. It is useful for completing the Pokédex if you can't connect online, and also for shiny hunting (though it will need to be touched up by PKHeX).
For Gen 8 Starters: Note that Pokémon caught this way are not "legal" but they can be modified to be legal simply by changing its caught location to "Postwick Town" in PKHeX and making sure it was caught in a Pokéball. (If it's shiny it will need to be changed to appear hatched from an egg, however, as shines are egg-only in the base game.)
For Gen 1 and 7 Starters: You will have to set them in PKHeX to look as if they are hatched, as they cannot be caught in the wild in Sw/Sh. Also, before Home comes out, they will be illegitimate regardless.
The mod is set to make sure all wild starters are level 5.
