Pokémon Discussion / Fixing 169 broken Pokemon game cartridges

Thought this would hold some interest for many of you, especially when he discusses some "possessed" games.
Generation I Glitch Discussion / A save file to experiment with
« on: February 08, 2013, 02:54:40 pm »
So I found this save file, but I have no idea how I got to where I am in it.  I'm apparently in a severely glitched version of Celadon City, and the music is all kinds of messed up.  Here's a link to it (it's not a virus or adware, I'm better than that.  :-* )

One precaution: going too far south on the path to the S.S. Anne will cause a game crash.

Have fun! Tell me if you find anything interesting.

Pokémon Glitch Discussion / Object Event vs. !
« on: January 01, 2013, 02:06:46 pm »
I noticed how similar RBY's "!" message and GSC's "Object event." message are.  They're both dialogue boxes assigned to NPCs who don't have any dialogue assigned to them (if that makes any sense).

Presumably, "!" prevents the game from crashing and is a placeholder expressly for that purpose.  But does "Object event." serve the same purpose? Does it go any deeper than that?
Pokémon Glitch Discussion / World's stupidest question
« on: December 17, 2012, 03:25:03 pm »
So I'm trying to use some codes on this massive list.

How do I tell what the "??"s should be replaced by?

For example, the PC modifier code is 01??26CC. What should ?? be replaced by?
Emulation & ROM Hacking / [NL]
« on: December 16, 2012, 02:25:28 pm »
I was looking through some unused text strings in Pokemon Yellow, and found this.

0x1903A4: There is no EGG.[NL][END]

Why would one put a new line command there, instead of an end command?

Also, this appears at 0x124558: "Oh, no. Oh, no… My daughter is missing. No… She couldn’t have gone to the Burned Tower. I told her not to go near it… People seem to disappear there… Oh, what should I do…?"

Does anyone know what the new line/end orientation of that would be? Looks like whoever took note of it didn't take that into account.
Emulation & ROM Hacking / I need a 3906 alternative.
« on: November 15, 2012, 05:11:36 pm »
I haven't posted here in a while, so hello!

I've realized that I can only do so much with line 3906 in the R/B ROM. Are there any lines near it, or similar to it, that cause similarly unpredictable effects? What values should I edit to have a little fun?

Also, I recall messing with some address that determined the first copyright date on the copyright screen, and changing it from "1998" to "00000000". Any idea which line this might have been?
Emulation & ROM Hacking / How would I go about doing this?
« on: August 10, 2012, 09:19:58 pm »
I'd like to play around with the attack database a bit, as seen in this video.

What addresses should I edit in the ROM, and which bytes are preferred?
This method is hit-or-miss, but I'd say you have a 1 in 3 chance of it working.

1. In VBA, go to line 3906.
2. Change "AF" to "9F".
3. Now this is where it gets tricky. There are two routines you can go through to encounter a glitch Pokemon.

a. In Oak's lab, inspect various objects around the room (preferably the third Pokeball that neither you nor your rival took) using the A button.  Looking at the bookcases behind the table also works. If you do this correctly, when you attempt to move, you will enter into a battle with a Level 183 Aerodactyl Missingno.

b. Once you've gotten your Pokemon and taken care of all that business, enter into a battle right outside of Pallet Town. As soon as the screen starts flashing, hit whatever key you have set up as your A button repeatedly.  If this works right, you will encounter a Level 183 Aerodactyl Missingno with a horizontally-flipped sprite.

I've found that Routine B is more reliable (in fact, it worked in 2 out of 3 battles for me just last night), but your mileage may vary.

Have fun, and don't be like me and freak out about it!  8)
Pokémon Discussion / Catching Ho-Oh with a Feraligatr?
« on: February 12, 2010, 06:14:24 pm »
I can has dilemma?

My friend Jason got me to the top of Tin Tower on Pokemon Gold, where Ho-Ho lies.  These are my Feraligatr's stats:

Lv. 61
Hydro Pump
Ice Punch

I know not to use Surf or Hydro Pump (I was told 1 move of Surf killed this Lv. 40 Ho-Oh), and I think Strength would also be a one-hit KO, so that leaves me with...Ice Punch. -.-'

The next highest-level Pokemon in my party is a level 27 Weepinbell, which has learned Acid, Sleep Powder, Cut, and Poison Powder.  The 2 Powder attacks don't work half the time (b/c of the shield), and Cut and Acid are virtually ineffective.  Also, 1 hit of Sacred Fire KOs my Weepinbell...

So, long story short, I need some help!
Pokémon Discussion / Today's thrift store finds! :D
« on: January 14, 2010, 03:04:29 pm »
Today, I ventured out to my local thrift store and found, to my surprise, a bag of 4 GBC games for $3.  These games were included:
~Super Off Road
~WWF Attitude
~Pokemon TCG

and... get ready for this...

~JAPANESE Pokemon Gold!  It works great, except for the fact that I had to start a new game AND can't read Japanese...^-^'

Nothing like a thrift store, huh?  This makes up for the time I passed on Pokemon Crystal at Goodwill.
Myth: Talking to the Dratini in Goldenrod City and then using the Coin Case will change the number of coins to "which move?he PP of" permanently if you save the game.

Verdict: False.  I tried saving the game and looking at the Coin Case again, and it showed the number of coins correctly.  If you continue on with this glitch, but change the number of coins (at Game Corner), then the number of coins will be normal again.

Myth: Talking to the Machoke in the basement of Goldenrod Department Store and then looking at the Coin Case will take you to the Glitch Dimension.

Verdict: Partially true.  The first time I tried this, the game locked up, but after that it restarted with the Glitch Dimension.

Myth: If you talk to the Farfetch'd in Azalea Town and then use the coin case, the game will freeze.

Verdict: True.  Works every time.
I have never seen or heard of this glitch before.  What I did was go to a Pokemon center, in Mahogany Town, I think, and booted up a computer.  I went to my own PC (my player is named LOUIS), and just for fun decided to check if I had any mail.  I was greeted by the following messages (I have removed blank ones so it's less to type):
Title: C [D(block)DOB(block)B
Message: none

Title: blank
Message: Freezes game on an all-white screen

Title: EB9

Title: BB
Message: blank

Title: GB
Message: Plain blue screen, with no flower print or graphics of normal mail

Message: MnaTP[P [Ä

Title: GREEN[  CVÄ (outside of message window, on the leftmost part of screen) ZMn
Message: K?YIUyUF

Title: blank
Message: 4Ü  Ä......PPPZ9[]
Note: This message also replaced the "to do?" in the "What do you want to do?" box with "P'r[" it lookes like: What do you want P'r[o?

Title: Z    T
Message: xx:P   [P[  tzx9[]

Title: OUIS
Message: Blank

Title: S
Message: S

Also, there were a LOT of messages that either had the title "GREEN" and a blank message, or a blank title and a message reading "GREEN".  There were about 61 messages total, including blank ones.

Has anyone else experienced this, or knows what this means?

Generation I Glitch Discussion / Complete Pokemon RYB error list?
« on: December 25, 2009, 11:40:36 am »
I just looked at the one on Blubapedia, and it is severely incomplete.  I have been watching many YouTube glitch videos lately, and I have seen many, like:
3 error
4 error
12 error
16 error

Does anyone have a complete list of RYB error codes, or know what the aforementioned codes mean?
I did, yesterday, and THIS happened...
Pokémon Glitch Discussion / Glitch Dreams
« on: December 22, 2009, 08:00:40 am »
I just had a dream about a glitch last night.  I remember getting a copy of Pokemon Red, then playing it on a Game Boy Color.  The first time, I was walking around and randomly encountered a Pokemon.  The battle text box said, "Wild 33 appeared!" I seem to remember thinking that it was actually 3TrainerPoke, even though this was Pokemon Red.  The game began to make typical glitch noises, and I knew that they'd continue for a while.  So I shut it off and had to start a new game.  This time, I was walking in a patch of tall grass and encountered "33" again.

One final note: My Trainer sent out a glitch Pokemon also, I don't remember seeing its name.

Preeeeeettty weird, huh?
Maybe I shouldn't have eaten that cheese before bed :P
