If anyone's interested, here's a tiny little morsel of information that I found recently. At the address '0x3A72A0' in Fire Red, you will find two bytes: '0xCD' and '0xFF'. These two bytes are used whenever the player is given two or more of some item using the 'giveitem' construct. The '0xCD' corresponds to an uppercase 'S' while the '0xFF' is the terminator byte, signifying the end of the string. If you change the byte from '0xCD' to '0xE7', the 'S' will become a lowercase 's'. I figure this might come in handy for those de-capitalization patches because it's really annoying to see "Player received the Poké BallS!" every time the player receives more than one of an item.
