Goldenrod City Department Store was intended to sell held items
« on: February 07, 2019, 07:16:03 pm »
I found this on the Pokémon Gold disassembly when searching for "unused".

The second floor of the Goldenrod City Department Store includes these two unused texts:

GoldenrodDeptStore2FUnusedText1:
; unused
   text "We intend to sell"
   line "items for #MON"
   cont "to hold."

   para "This is a free"
   line "gift. Have a #-"
   cont "MON hold it."
   done

GoldenrodDeptStore2FUnusedText2:
; unused
   text "Giving #MON"
   line "items to hold dur-"
   cont "ing battle could "
   cont "tip the scales in"
   cont "your favor."
   done

I'm currently trying to find a way of displaying text with arbitrary code execution. The below codes work, but the last page of the message unfortunately gets cut off. Does anyone know of a better code?

ld a,57
ld hl,5c10
call 3404
ret

ld a,57
ld hl,5c67
call 3404
ret

Edit: Turns out these also appear in Crystal, and the second text was even changed slightly!

We intend to sell
items for POKéMON
to hold.

This is a free
gift. Have a POKé
MON hold it.


By giving POKéMON
items to hold, I

bet trainers will
develop new battle
techniques.

Ooh,interesting! Maybe it was for those status-preventing held items?

That'd be my guess.
Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.
