    Or perhaps I forgot to change something in the scripts? I'm compiling to try to figure that out.

    Anyway, when you do eggs, I personally believe the script for evolving a Pokémon would be a good place to start, except the egg would always hatch successfully instead of being able to be stopped with the press of a button like level-up evolutions. Also, when do you think you'll finally be able to do some more work on the "gain EXP upon catching a Pokémon" thing?

    Unfortunately, instead of the TM34 text, Brock's now saying the Gym Guide's line after giving me the Boulder Badge for some reason! Any idea why?

    Thank goodness that was it... all I needed to do was change the number of objects from 3 to 4, and the Gym's working again! Now I can test out whether the lines I changed and/or removed for the "infinite TM" bit were the lines I needed to change and/or remove.

    It sort of might of been, upon further investigation. I think there was a syntax error in the Gym's map file. I just hope it was only that... anyway, I'm compiling and will confirm for sure once I get to that point in my next attempted test run.

    Whatever it turns out to be, I hope it's not the trainer (of the Lass class) I added.

    As for Pewter Gym, I seem to be at a dead end. I'm wondering if the sprites had anything to do with the Gym crashing the game.

    I'm honestly surprised you're still watching it. I'm probably not going to actually start watching it at this point if that's the way they're going to be. That's absurd!
    Actually, I'm not watching it. I just lurked through the threads for the Hoenn episodes a little bit.

    I almost feel like Red++ and Christmas should have a dose of "girl power" in response to Generations, if you know what I mean. Christmas is already off to a very good start with having Kris as the Champion, Green as the final endgame boss (assuming it's the same as the 2012 version), and the planned postgame stuff with Lorelei.

    Red++ could also do something with Lorelei in the postgame, as well as maybe do something with some of the female gym leaders (like Misty or Sabrina).

    I hadn't heard that explanation for the Orange Islands, but it makes perfect sense. I know that GS were already well into development by the time that the anime came out, and that that was why Ho-oh was in the first episode, why Togepi appeared, etc. The fact that it had no game connection and was very character-of-the-day driven with random standalone islands, it makes the most sense as a filler arc that they could end at any time when they were ready to start on the Johto side. And of course, the deadline and delay issue is a good explanation for the lackluster Kanto appearance. The things we come to realize later.
    The Orange Islands also allowed them to continue to tease things from GS, such as Tracey having a Marill, the introduction of the GS Ball, and the 2nd movie centering around Lugia.

    While Kanto got rushed to a premature end, the exact opposite ironically ended up happening with Johto. With no new games immediately on the horizon and talks about GS possibly being the final Pokémon games, the anime's writers wanted to make Johto last as long as possible, hence the sluggish pace and loads of pointless filler. For all of the hype and buildup it got, Johto turned out to be a very disappointing anime, which sadly began the downfall of Pokémania.

    That reminds me, I had someone comment in the Red++ thread recently saying they were lost because I had moved the Tea key item. So I had to remind them that Tea as an item only existed in FireRed, and they needed to go get a normal drink out of the vending machine to give him. Haha.

    You probably already know this, but the Tea was an anti-sequence breaking measure GF implemented into FRLG. They wanted to keep people from skipping Rock Tunnel and getting into Saffron early by trading in Pokémon holding vending machine drinks.

    Interestingly, it was actually possible to do this cheat in RBY, although you needed Stadium or Stadium 2 to pull it off (since RBY don't recognize held items).

    But yeah, I assumed GSC was where your love for Lance came from. There wasn't much to his story or personality shown in RBY, but they really expanded his character in GSC and made him a real person. Made him a lot more relatable and likeable too. Kinda like how Flannery's characterization made her come off as more real to me, which is part of why I like her so much. Plus aside from her hair, she looked like a real person too.
    Yeah, RBY Lance had no characterization beyond "Dragons are cool!" and even seemed to act like kind of a brat when you beat him (more like Clair, interestingly). In GSC, we not only learned about his family and where he came from, but we also got a better sense of his personality and the warm, kind, heroic man he is.

    Of course, this is yet another place where FRLG dropped the ball, completely reverting him back to his one-note RBY characterization instead of fleshing him out more and setting up his later role in GSC.

    I love Lance so much that I sometimes get a little sad when he's not in a Pokémon game, and I can tell that you feel the same way about Flannery with the way you always give her cameos in your games.

    Yes, that's what it was! I had a hidden objects pointer in the wrong place near the top!

    After further review, I think I might have figured it out. I'll confirm for sure once I finish fixing the Transgender Nidoran Glitch and compile the resulting game files.

    Oh, I was asking about the hidden items because I added just two--one to Viridian Forest and one to Pewter City, both between existing hidden items in Viridian Forest and Mt. Moon--and that alone appears to have broken the hidden items mechanic completely by accident.

    As for Pewter Gym: did the alpha you received experience any damaging glitches upon entry into Pewter Gym?

    Also: how do you do hidden items?

    OK, now Pewter Gym looks totally glitched up from the second I enter. Do you have any idea what may be the cause of that?

    Here's a picture illustrating the glitch, similar to the 1/256 miss glitch which we've both eliminated in our hacks:

    I just now discovered a bug in the gender mechanic that allows for transgender Nidoran. Is it in Red++, too?
