    Hey! Are u on discord? Revamped MRDS rombase seems a good idea.

    That's really clever. (Was wondering what good a "mov r8, r8" could possibly be doing...) The issue happens in wild and trainer battles both, so a simple battle check branch won't quite do it.
    But thanks so much for the in-depth pointers and explanations, man. :D I will keep fiddling along those lines, and will no doubt stumble on a fix somewhere.

    Hmm... That routine doesn't seem to matter, and I don't think there's any issue with the tool's application of the routine (it's identical to JPAN's source).
    I can't say I'm perfectly confident with the workings of the VRAM, but I've tried playing around with your code. When I remove your "player pal fix section" (i.e. remove the branch to "Other" if loading frames 1-4), the problem disappears (but obviously the wrong player palette is shown for frames 1-4). What exactly is your extra branch changing? Might it be related to the palette of HP bars?

    May or may not be reassuring.
    I used JPAN's Hack Applier tool, so my backsprite switch routine is at 0x172C9C, and so there was no routine 0xB0 steps down to repoint (original routine was surrounded by a block of freespace).

    Pretty bizarre. Don't know if a temporary variable is changed from using the PC that affects battle palettes, because the change seems to persist until the game is reset (demo).

    Ah! Found a bug in your routine after all. Whenever I use the PC and then return to battle, the HP bars of both Pokémon change to red for every frame of the backsprite animation after the first. Should be simple enough to reproduce.
    Do you have a suggestion for a fix here?

    Dude, I'm eternally grateful. Your fix for JPAN's backsprite switch has really saved my hack from probably weeks of delay. I don't know where I would have even begun without finding it. Thanks so much, and keep up your ASM-ing!

    I haven't tried it, but the npc_change_sprite function in there changes the palette, so you should be able to use one of those (either pal_path_for_npc or npc_load_two_palettes__and_record). Is that code 100% working? I want to edit my post so other people don't have the same issues.

    Sorry for the late reply. You aren't using it incorrectly, my code is just incorrect. Try this instead (I messed up some of the registers).
