Title: The 'Truck'
Post by: Brocco Guy on June 04, 2009, 07:23:26 pm
While making a FireRed hack, I came upon this little gem:

I promise I did not edit this. Just open up any FireRed rom.

Yeah, the truck still remains there... click A on the SS Anne Truck to get a Lavacookie.

May I ask where thst is as I just realized that may not be the SS Anne Truck?

In the SS Anne opening place.

It's not where you board the SS Anne or?
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Brocco Guy on June 04, 2009, 08:52:54 pm
Where you board, just where the truck is originally.

Ok, just making sure since I haven't played Fr/Lg much.

Um...  I knew about this for quite a while.

Yeah, just an addition to the famous Truck.

It is a little bizzarre, why a lava cookie? It is by the sea after all and nintendo dont expect you to have anything to do with hoenn until you have got the national dex. I wonder why?

Maybe just a practical joke on us, to make us think wow lets stick this lava cookie in the water to dose it and eat it.

I haven't tested it on the new game, but on the originals if you get cut (and everything else you want) then Black Out on the SS Anne (all Pokemon Fainted) the ship does not leave. Because the scripting is based on you leaving the SS Anne. Obviously if you go in and come back out again it then leaves

I'll test it now if you want on the new games. I could do a video proof on the old games as well (because you obviously can't be bothered to start a new game just to test it out)

[spoiler]Have I actually got a non glitched/cheated game? I started up Red to remember I completed the game before talking to oak for the first time. I then booted up FireRed to find that I had just beaten Brock with a level 77 Egg called Gregg... Fun times

If I am spoiler monologging then I might as talk about my Rayquazegg, I loved him. Due to Ruby's interpretation of the data it sent him out as a Rayquaza but with Egg's colourset. Originally It hatched very quickly so I had to bad-egg-ify it. [/spoiler]

That is a very cconfirmed glitch.

IT does not work in Fr/Lg. You have to get a pokemon with cut from a trade.

XD lol I forgot about the truck still being there :p. I think the first time I heard about it I thought it was so hacked but I guess Nintendo does like easter eggs in Pokemon.

Here's an explanation for the Truck:
It is not a lost bit of beta material. I realized this many years ago while Using the Battle Lugia GameShark SP code to by pass the ferry dock dude. There are in fact crates next to the Truck. Hence it is a decoration because since this is a harbor, its natural there would be a loading dock for the Ships. Also a truck would be needed to haul around the crates.

The truck has no real beta material value whatsoever. It was just there for the player to seek out in their spare time if they wanted to for replay value and lulz.
It is in fact more of an easter egg of sorts. It was left there on purpose because they knew somebody would be bored enough to find it.

Sorry guys but this needed to be clarified. I apologize for bursting any long time member's bubble but it was time this was made known.

I've known about this for years by the way. I think the Lava cookie was put there as a joke referring to the fake stories surrounding Mew and the Truck. They didn't want the player to leave empty handed this time around I suppose.

I wonder if we will ever find another easter egg in any of the pokemon games.

Heartgold and Soulsilver is possible if they give us the complete Kanto including the SS Anne, maybe the SS Anne on mondays/tuesdays and fast ship wednesday/thursday

Let's all hope that this is some sort of Easter egg.

If it isn't an easter egg I'll be shocked because it would make me wonder why the truck still exists, if it was beta then any beta information would not make it into firered that is unless they are playing a joke on us and we all know the truck is not an essential feature of the game, my guess is that it really is an easter egg because the truck is still present

We should add this to the site's article on it.

I just realized something: The crates next to the truck are actually decorative plants. Still yet my Loading dock explanation is sticking.
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Prisma on June 06, 2009, 09:57:58 pm
Everything is selfexplanetory its a loading place.

Post by: atoms2ashes on June 07, 2009, 02:24:55 am
But still I wonder...

How could a truck reach a small peninsula of land that does not lead to any other place on land?
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Zowayix on June 07, 2009, 03:03:51 am
By being a submarine truck.
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Brocco Guy on June 07, 2009, 08:40:04 am
Or maybe the idiot truck drivers unloaded so they couldn't get out.
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Glisp on June 07, 2009, 09:09:31 am
Its probably just there for transportation purposes on that dock. We don't really need to know how it got there what we need to know has already been answered: Its just a decoration to make the place look pretty. ;)
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Prisma on June 07, 2009, 08:38:12 pm
Obviosly there is no way it could get there in the first place, but hey, if people could access it easily then it wouldn't be an easter egg would it?

True that.

But why a truck IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN ON A PLATFORM?
Title: Re: The 'Truck'
Post by: Prisma on June 08, 2009, 05:16:04 pm
Its an easter egg, the fun is in finding it not wondering why or how it got there. Come on it irritates me seeing people guessing at obvious thing.
