    I'm trying to change items like Metal Coat, etc., to work as evolution stones in Fire Red. I've made all the checks with the necessary tools (changed Metal Coat's field effect, changed Onix's evolution...), and I also followed the instructions in the following posts:

    http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=6745155&postcount=11
    http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7216463&postcount=37

    However, when I click on Onix to use the item, despite the fact it shows the health bar (meaning the item is compatible), the Pokémon doesn't evolve. I haven't been able to figure out why, so I've come here. How can I do it?

      Someone correct me of I'm wrong, but from what I've heard, there is a special table in the game that only allows the five stones to be directly used on a Pokemon to make it evolve, no matter what field effect you set on another one. I know that many people have been able to change this and I believe I came across a tutorial in the tutorials section on how to do it. So head over there and see if you can find it.

        I have just answered it before but I will say it again. You need national dex before you can get pokemon other than the original 151 so Onix is not evolving because Steelix is from Gen 2.

          Aryan, no offence, but I believe this might be different. I tried to make my Rayquaza evolve into a Lugia with a newly created item and this exact thing happened on Ruby. I have a fully completed 370+ hr save file, with completed National Dex.

          This thread is what I found earlier and what I was referring to as a tutorial, look for Jambo51's post.

          Edit: Don't know why it deleted the link, here it is: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=258012

            I have the National Dex.

            When you don't have the National Dex and you try to evolve a Pokémon into a Johto one, it actually goes into the evolution screen but it blocks the evolution and displays a silent message. In my case, you can't actually use the item to make the Pokémon evolve.

            @karatekid552: Jambo51's explanation was fine, but unfortunately I don't know the location of the table in the ROM to update it with other item data, so I'm a bit stuck... Probably needs ASM as well, which I'm not versed in.

                I know that someone knows the offset, because I have seen at least three hacks with the table changed. Let me do some digging and I'll get back to you.

                    Go search through the tutorial section, sometimes there are attached videos. Also, there is a 21(?) part youtube set dealing with everything scripting and Advance Map. I have watched many of the episodes and they are pretty good. Just search "pokemon scripting tutorial" in google and you will deffinately find something under youtube.

                          Just so you do get an answer, and you're not ignored, it is possible. The most recent hack I've seen with it is DarkViolet. If nobody on this thread is able to help you, search for a hack with it in it and contact the creater. They should be able to help you.

                            Um, DarkViolet is a FireRed Hack... xD You must be confused with the R/S/E styled graphics

                            As far as I know there are some instruction in the thread in the R&D Forum, but the patch is only exclusive for FireRed.

                            But the graphic split can be easily done, for Ruby.

                              Look in the Nuzlocke forums, I think there's an IPS patch for Ruby there.

                              It has been done and most moves work, except for Counter/Mirror Coat, which are still buggy.

                              It would be cool to have it in a hack, but for the standard game I don't know if it's a good idea, because the AI might not handle it properly... AI tends to use the most effective move anyway, though.

                                Does anyone have the list of free flags and variables for Fire Red or a link to a thread that does?

                                    Put their OW on a map by using Advanced Map and then make a script for wildbattle.

                                        There are lots of tutorials in the tutorials section, the trick is being patient and want to understand how it all works. Starting from the beginning is always the first step but some people seem to want to rush straight into the more complicated stuff. I'd recommend having a folder with a spare ROM to test your scripts and then just save them as text files when they work. Or you could go a step further and study and break down in game scripts to see how they work.

                                        Nobody is going to do all your scripts for you.

                                          An old program called poketronic will make a basic wild battle script for you, but if you want anything more than the battle, you are going to have to edit it yourself.

                                            Right. I know that there is a patch somewhere for Emerald that makes all the Pokemon names (and possibly moves and abilities, I don't remember all that well) all in titlecase (so Pikachu instead of PIKACHU). I cannot find it again.

                                            Does anyone have any idea where it might have hidden itself?

                                              I have a very weird specific question.

                                              My husband is testing my hack and he ran into a shiny gligar. He threw the only ball he had on him, a master ball, and caught it. However, it turned into a bad egg. He's since tested the master ball on other wild pokemon and they haven't become bad eggs...any ideas?
