    It wasn't difficult to knock up a new version of tm.txt. At least one version I'd seen had a few errors, so I thought I'd just get the information directly from the Interweb to be sure it was correct. As for pokemon.txt, I've had that for a while, and I adapted it from another existing version (it may have been yours, I don't remember) to remove any errors.

    Second thing I notice is this textbox:

    Thought that only seems to happen if he's reviving an invalid choice, looking at the code.
    The inclusion of the Gen 5 Pokémon is just to make it future-proof. It wasn't an Easter egg.

    The failure message is one, though. Ordinarily you'd never see it (actually, you can if you give a Gen 5 fossil without having Gen 5 Pokémon defined in pokemon.txt), but it's there for completeness. The message is a reference to Star Trek The Motion Picture, where a similar line is said of a crewman who suffered from a transporter malfunction.

    The other Easter egg is the sign outside the lab. What's the reference there?

    One question, do we have permission to use your maps in our games?
    You can if you like. I made all the maps myself (obviously some are inspired by the official games), so credit is appreciated.
