    The Marowak/Ghost battle has a routine where, when you throw a Poke Ball, the Pokemon dodges to the side so the ball misses and a message is displayed that says "This Pokemon cannot be captured." That's what I want most of all. If the routine for when the Pokeball is thrown can be changed so that when a certain flag or variable is set, that routine will activate in Fire Red, that would be perfect.

    I wish I knew how to locate/display different routines/assembly instructions in the game. If anyone knows the location of the Poke Ball routine and how to hack it to add the Marawak Poke Ball routine when a certain flag/variable is set, let me know.
