Custom Trainer ID Question
« on: October 26, 2017, 09:40:02 am »
After successfully getting myself a shiny Mew from Pokemon Yellow, I decided I want to farm high IV Dittos from Yellow until I get some good ones.  However, in the process of getting a shiny Mew I changed my ID to the GF ID.  I would like to change it to 00115 and by following the guide linked below.  However, I came across an issue.


I started by taking 00115 and converting it to hexidecimal: 0073
Then I split the four digit Hexadecimal into two sets of two numbers: 00 and 73
When I went to convert those back into decimal, that's where the issue sprung up.  00 in decimal is still 0.  I can't have 0 lemonades in my bag and still have it be my third item in my inventory.  Do I just move all the other items up a slot?  What is the solution so I can get the ID I desire?  Thank you for your help.

Additional Info:
-I am using an English US version of Pokemon Yellow
-My bootstrapping party consists of:
  • Seel with 233 HP
    Female Nidoran
    Three other Pokemon
-The item code I've been using is:
  • Any item
    WS M
    Lemonade x(xx)
    Repel x(yy)
    Carbos x211
    X Accuracy x88
    Water Stone x115
    TM01 x1

But yeah. If you modify your code to this, the first ID will be reduced by 1, allowing you to get the 00 73 combination. :)

Any item
Lemonade x01
Repel x115
Carbos x211
X Accuracy x88
Soda Pop x 4
Water Stone x115
TM01 x1

The Soda Pop x4 can be anywhere after Lemonade x01 but before Water Stone x115.

Another solution is to use an expanded items pack to find a Lemonade x0 and dig it up from the x-coordinate byte. After swapping the X Special x1 in place, make a few steps back and move here, where you should find a Lemonade x0.

However be very careful not to press A on lag/unterminated name glitch items or the game will freeze and you could lose your save file, and also be very careful not to swap one stack of Lemonades with another stack of Lemonades, or the game will attempt to merge them and you won't get your Lemonade x0 stack.

Hope this helps!

Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

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. ^_^

The issue with spirituality I feel is that people try to learn ideology, which while valid is not the whole picture and can lead to 'spiritual materialism' (masking), when a large component is that as children we're already our genuine selves or 'spiritual masters'.
