    Trust me, if adding every single move introduced in the 4th gen. was possible, plus adding all 4th gen. Pokes up to Arceus (493), with no removal of the existing movesets and Pokémon, there would already be a ROMhack base available utilizing this for hackers to use at will. Same with adding 5th gen.

    Actually, it is possible to add new moves without replacing older ones. You can look at a tutorial on the R&D forums. I don't know why there isn't a ROM base, but I presume it's to prevent over-usage of it in amateur hacks.
