After a long battle with cancer trying to find the RAM location of the player's money, I had a feeling that it is encrypted somewhere in the RAM and that's why I can't find it. So after going to my local POKeMART, I found a little routine that seems to decrypt something. After doing further testing, I made this routine to get the player's current money using the game's own code.

The routine:

.align 2

/*This routine does all the hard work in retrieving your current
money and stores it in vars 0x8000 and 0x8001.
	0x8000 - Lower half
	0x8001 - Upper half

main:	push {r4-r6, lr}
	ldr r6, .DMA_MAP
	ldr r0, [r6, #0x0]
	mov r5, #0xA4
	lsl r5, r5, #0x2
	add r0, r0, r5
	ldr r1, .OTHER_RAMLOC
	ldr r1, [r1, #0x8]
	bl get_amount		/*Does the actual decrypting*/
	ldr r1, .VAR_8000
	str r0, [r1]
	pop {r4-r6, pc}

get_amount:	ldr r4, .DO_CALC
		bx r4

.hword 0x0000
.DMA_MAP:	.word 0x03005008
.OTHER_RAMLOC:	.word 0x02039934
.VAR_8000:	.word 0x020370B8 /*Var 0x8000-0x8001*/
.DO_CALC:	.word 0x0809FD59

I slept after that...
