+ (0x800D * 2)

Edit: One thing I forgot to mention: I'm hacking Fire Red.

I found out that 0x800D is the buffer (yay, scripting tutorials), but what's the times 2 thing for?

Also, what does address 0x020270B6 do (in Fire Red)?
That is the address of the variable '0x800D' (more commonly known as 'LASTRESULT') in the WRAM. The reason that "+ (0x800D * 2)" is appended to the main '0x020270B6' part is that if you multiply 0x800D by 2 and then add it to the main part, you get '0x020370D0' which is the actual address of '0x800D'. HackMew formatted it that way for convenience. If you wanted to use variable '0x8004' instead, all you have to do is change '0x800D' to '0x8004'. Otherwise, you'd have to calculate what address '0x8004' is at and that's just no fun.
