I've read that setting off the flag for the National Dex in Pokemon FR/LG before the Elite Four's first encounter can really screw things up pretty badly and not allow you to fight them.

I've done some mild hex research and came to a half-baked conclusion that this is a result of flag 0x193, which in the Indigo Plateau (bank 13 map 10) event files is what causes the girl to say Lorelei is out.

Further investigation revealed flag 0x844 as what puts things right, and this flag is what CELIO sets off upon completing his work on ONE ISLAND (post gemstones).

Lorelei has her own set of flags - 0x2D4 is what prompts her to say she'll be going back to
the Pokemon league.

However, I am a complete newb to hex editing as well as a complete newb to this kind of thing. This is where I need help - how do I go about keeping the National Dex activated without screwing up the Elite Four encounter?

I think I'm on the right track, but if one of the far more knowledgeable people could provide help I'd be hugely grateful.

Thanks!
