    I'll admit I know more about how Gen 1's code works than about how Gen 2's code works. Haha.

    Oh, you think you or someone else could disassemble the Spanish version of Red/Blue? Because I might need some help from that disassembly, if one should exist or be made sometime in the future, if I'm to include a Spanish translation in my hack's releases. Right now, though, I'm perfectly content with translating my hack to French based on pokered-fr.

    Oh, anyway, I think I stumbled upon a linguistic goldmine for my hack. If the French translation of my hack gets included in the next release, I'll be sure to thank iimarckus for it.

    That's what stinks about Christmas being on a weekend this year. To employers, that means they don't have to give you any time off the week before.

    Rangi managed to find a way to port Abilities into Gen II. When you get back to Red++ (do you expect it'll be as early as next month at present, by the way?), do you think you can find a way to translate that to the language spoken by Gen I assembly? In particular, I'm wondering if the Abilities need their own Constant file, and if the Abilities can simply be added in between the sprite data and the move tutor compatibility flags on each base stats file or the move tutor flags need to be first moved to make room.

    And you're right about Ash always taking the role of the male player, with the girl either absent or as eye candy. If I do get back into the idea of trying to write fan fiction, I think I know which player characters I'd focus on :p
    This almost always seems to end up being fanfiction's job, isn't it? Canon either ignores or marginalizes the female characters, so fans have to turn to fanon to get equal representation. There's a reason why the majority of fanfic writers are female, after all.

    Of course, this often ends up being a Catch 22. Even the most wonderfully-written fanfic will never be given the visibility and importance of even the worst-written canon, and simply being a fanfic writer carries a lot of negative (and sexist) baggage. When most people think of fanfiction, they usually think of 15 year old emo girls writing badly-written porn. Any female character that is more than a Sexy Lamp automatically gets slapped with the dreaded "Mary Sue" insult, which is a surefire way to kick down an author and destroy their reputation. Nobody wants to be a "Suethor," after all.

    Well, the name "Mateo" makes me think "male." Sorry if you consider yourself something else.

    The only reason the male PCs don't appear in the anime more is because their role is already taken by the Eternal 10 Year Old and his Yellow Rat. Look at all the other adaptations that don't center around him (such as Origins, Generations, and the various manga), and the male PCs all feature heavily in leading roles. On the flipside, I can't name a single adaptation that uses the female PC as the main protagonist and has the boy as the sidekick.

    How do you give a trainer individual DVs independent of his/her own trainer class? Because I was thinking of giving the Rattata Lass on Route 3 the same DVs as most Youngsters (that is, those who don't have Rattata in the top percentage of Rattata) do.

    Hey guys, I'm Mateo. I was the co-founder of the Skeetendo Inc. Hacking Group (before it was a community, when it was just me and Pyro). I'm still a huge fan of Gen II, and so I still enjoy playing and hacking those games. I'm currently working on a "Johto Legacy" series that continues the story of G/S/C that consists of the "Pokémon Christmas" hack, and an upcoming prequel called "Pokémon Spirits and Legends" (that currently has no thread here).
