All of the other tutorials I've seen on cry inserting tell you to lower the quality of the cry to 11050Hz or 11025Hz. That is completely unnecessary, and simply serves do severely downgrade the quality of the cry. The Game Boy Advance can handle more than that.

While inserting new instrument samples with Sappy, I realized that if I can insert these samples at 13379Hz without any problems, then surely I can insert cries the same way. And so, my theory turned out to be true.

Yes, I am going to show you how to insert new Pokémon cries using Sappy, a program that was designed for a completely different purpose XD

Here's what you'll need:
*Sappy Mod 15 (get it here)
*Free Space Finder
*any random hex editor
*.wav files of your cries (All 649 cries download, credit to Pokerealm.com)
*Pokémon Game Editor (optional if you know what you're doing)

IMPORTANT: If you don't know how to use a hex editor, or if you don't know what a pointer is, then I'm afraid this tutorial is too advanced for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Open your ROM in Free Space Finder, find a really huge amount of free space (under the "Needed Bytes" label, I just type in 9999 even though I don't actually need 9999 bytes of free space)

------

2. Make sure your free space offset ends in 0, or 4, or 8, or C. If it doesn't, just go forward 1 byte until it does. KEEP TRACK OF THE OFFSET.

------

3. Open your ROM in Sappy

------

4. Go to Tasks ---> Import Sample


------

5. Select the cry you're going to insert, and insert at the free space offset you found earlier. You don't have to change any settings, just click "Import" right away.


Even though you just inserted the cry, still keep track of the offset.

------

6. READ: This step if for having a Pokémon's cry offset change to the new offset you just inserted a new cry at. If you know where the offset is by a method other than Pokémon Game Editor, then simply change the offset and skip this step. This step covers how to do it with Pokémon Game Editor.

Now open up Pokémon Game Editor, and go to the Pokémon that you're going to change its cry. Change the cry offset to the offset of the cry you inserted earlier.


However, there's a minor issue: This method will only work correctly if you're editing a Pokémon that's from Generation I or Generation II.

If you want to change the cry of a Generation III Pokémon, read this:
Spoiler:
Pokémon Game Editor lists the incorrect cry offsets for Generation III Pokémon. This is because in the ROM, there's a secondary cry table to assign cries for the Generation III Pokémon. This is further because the Generation III cries are not stored in index number order in the first cry table, instead they're stored in the order that Game Freak created the Generation III Pokémon, hence why Kecleon comes right after Celebi in the cry table. However, if my theory is correct, the "?" Pokémon that's right after Celebi should have Kecleon's cry pointer in Pokémon Game Editor. Right after Celebi, the cries are in this order:
251 - Kecleon
252 - Roselia
253 - Torkoal
254 - Electrike
255 - Manectric
256 - Duskull
257 - Latias

265 - one of the beta cries that was first discovered in that German Ruby Debug ROM (beta Shellos?)
266 - Taillow
267 - Swellow
268 - one of the beta cries that was first discovered in that German Ruby Debug ROM (beta Gastrodon?)

383 - Snorunt
384 - Latios
385 - Jirachi
386 - Deoxys
387 - Chimecho

So if you know what you're doing, it shouldn't be that hard to change a Gen III Pokemon's cry.


------

7. Now that we've changed the cry offset, there's one last thing we need to do. Open up your ROM in a hex editor, and search for the pointer to your new cry. I inserted my cry at 0x7BC664, so the pointer I'm searching for is 64 C6 7B 08.


------

8. The search for the pointer should now take you to exactly where the offset is in the first cry table. Now go four bytes before that offset, and you should see the bytes "20 3C 00 00"


Change "20 3C 00 00" to "00 3C 00 00".

Congratulations, you just inserted a high-quality cry. Now test your cry in-game, and it should be in unbelievably high-quality, much higher than Pokecry will ever let you. You'll never have to use Pokecry again!
