Hiya Pokecommunity! I've recently been playing with the idea of expanding my rom to 32MBs, in order to put in more towns and maps. But could someone help me by explaining the pros and cons of expansion, to help me decide?
There is way more than enough room in original 3rd gen pokemon games for adding that kind of stuff. I'm playing myself with a rom file that has only ~15% of free space and even that's more than enough. In FR and Ruby, I think about half of the rom file is completely empty.

That doesn't actually qualify as something that would probably be a bad thing but then again, patch files are. IPS patches are made so that they can only be made to write data to an address that can be defined with 3-bytes so basically, from $000000 to $FFFFFF. I may not remember right but I think the offsets after the first 16MB are bigger $1000000.
