what i sataed isnt that the games follow general midi, its that the system has to. a composer could make a trumpet in song a call bank x which plays a flute sound in it, while if it referd to bank y, it might play a sax. soundbanks are like soundfonts, just pointing to whatever samples the composer intended. and the trick to the old sounds would easily be explained by some sort of midi event or other coding. e.g. the slising bell sound at the start of the rival battle in black and white. it cant be a pitch bend event as its waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too smooth.
