My hack also has more than the usual three starters, and I approached it this way: Store the species number in a variable. Then, use bufferpokemon 0x0 0xVAR_NUMBER, with var_number being the variable holding the species number. This doesn't preserve nicknames, of course...there's always a way, and you'll probably have to do alot of work. I have an idea about storing the nickname to five variables, if necessary, so try working from that.

Another one. How exactly do I set the battle theme for each character? And if I try to set another trainer as a gym leader via AT, their music remains the same. Is there a way to change this? Thanks in advanced!
I believe that they simply use eight more flags then the usual, to dictate the eight new badges. They aren't displayed on the trainer card, though, unless you do a little ASM.

I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.
