Strange cheat/ACE only box side effect
« on: May 01, 2018, 12:03:26 pm »
As was documented before, attempting to use a PC with no Pokémon results in the message "Bzzzzt! You must have a POKéMON to use this!". However, hibiki ganaha found a new way to activate "You gotta have POKéMON to call!" text

This text can be accessed if you modify the number of Pokémon you have in the party to 0 after the PC successfully loads (requiring you to have at least one Pokémon before this).

But I realised then, 'what would happen if you avoided that message as well'?

I tried changing DCD7 (English Crystal number of Pokémon to 00) while on the deposit screen and got different messages where apparently a glitch stat was being altered, depending on which Pokémon were deposited.

Using ????? (00) or ????? (FF) you can withdraw over 6 Pokémon, but you're never able to withdraw this many without a freeze.

These deposit messages only seem to be a side effect of managing Pokémon beyond slot 6 though, because I got the same message with 255 Pokémon.

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪

Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.


I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

Faith (which doesn't have to be religious) and a positive attitude/optimism is half the battle for well-being.

Fun times come and go, we may argue what is the point if nothing in this world is permanent; and all energy is believed to be subject to transformation. I guess in the temporary absence of it though, we value those times more and even though some things seem to be lost, they return in other forms.
