Yeah, I don't really know how to show proof of ASM Hacking... But... These are the bytes which limit the overworld sprites in each game, which I found by disassembling the ROMs:
FireRed:    0x005F2E0; 0x97 (151)
LeafGreen:  0x005F2E0; 0x97 (151)
Ruby:       0x005BC28; 0xD9 (217)
Sapphire:   0x005BC2C; 0xD9 (217)
Emerald:    0x008E6C4; 0xEE (238)
These values need to be increased to expand the OWs available in game.

E.G: Changing the Byte at 0x005F2E0 (in a FireRed ROM) to 0x00 would cause all OW Sprites to become the 'little boy'. :)

EDIT: Except the male player sprite.

Side Note: Just so you know, I don't hack all the time and I am not very imaginative... :D
The script is pretty well done; I noticed one error, though. The ASM looks pretty dandy: you're in. :)

Proof of Work: Uh... Yeah. Sorry 'bout this one... lol. I have a storyline made up, and would be happy to pm it to you. I'm not sure how to do the spoiler thing yet, cause I NOoB HaRdd.

...uh, you do need some proof of work. D:

Sorry to sound rude but your maps are horrendous and really need some reworking. Look at maps made by people in the MRT (sasquatchd00d) and some of GameFreak's maps.

Uh, I guess they're pretty good; not really a fan of the two later styles, though. They are done well, though: you're pending. I'd like to see more than just world map inserting which is something I can do myself. Perhaps more proofs and proofs of other stuff you can do?
Wait, I saw bare kicks, saw bare clothes
Said psyduck that, I can't wear those
I don't like them, they're not my ting
