View Full Version : Research: Yet another question I'm posing: Pokédex Glitch

Intro to the Glitch
HackMew and I were talking about this glitch on MSN, and I decided to post a thread here about it.

Straight from Bulbapedia:
The species names present in FireRed and LeafGreen are cut off in early English releases of the games, most specifically those species names made up of more than one word with a space in between. This causes Pokémon like Pidgey to be listed as "Tiny Pokémon" rather than "Tiny Bird Pokémon." Internal game data lists the species name the same as it appears in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and other games, indicating a glitch in the Pokédex where a blank space is confused for the terminating byte for the name. This was addressed in later releases of the game. This is the easiest way to tell whether the game in question is a v1.0 or v1.1 release.Well, this may not be a big glitch, but it would be nice to see this problem addressed in FireRed v1.0. How can we achieve this?

Maybe somebody can take a crack at the coding in FireRed v1.1 and port the fix over.
