    Ah thank you, it worked. I thought bytes were overwrited already when you just pasted it.

    EDIT: Ok, I tried something out, but it didn't work:

    .align 2
    .global test1

    push {r0-r1, lr}
    ldr r0, .WILD_NEW
    ldr r0, [r0]
    ldr r1, .WILD_DATA
    ldrh r0, [r0, #0x8]
    strh r0, [r1]
    pop {r0-r1, pc}

    .align 2
    .word 0x00810000
    .word 0x003C8F00

    I tried using this to change wild data for Route 1. The first rattata in the list was supposed to be changed to an arbok, but it didn't work, so it seems. I kept encountering the usual pidgey's and rattata's (tried around 20 - 30 encouters, didn't find it).

    Here's my script (a simple lvl script):

    #dynamic 0x800000
    #org @start
    checkflag 0x201
    if b_true goto @stop
    callasm 0x810009
    setflag 0x201
    #org @stop
    I'm new to ASM, and I'm not sure what I missed out, so can someone help?
