Further investigation revealed flag 0x844 as what puts things right, and this flag is what CELIO sets off upon completing his work on ONE ISLAND (post gemstones).

Lorelei has her own set of flags - 0x2D4 is what prompts her to say she'll be going back to
the Pokemon league.

However, I am a complete newb to hex editing as well as a complete newb to this kind of thing. This is where I need help - how do I go about keeping the National Dex activated without screwing up the Elite Four encounter?

I think I'm on the right track, but if one of the far more knowledgeable people could provide help I'd be hugely grateful.

Special 0x16F atfter setting the pokedex should enable the antional dex. If it screws up the Eilte 4 then you've probably got a bad ROM. :\
