    You need to edit this file on Platinum:
    Code:
    /poketool/waza/pl_waza_tbl.narc
    You can find more specific information here but I warn you that you'll most likely be editing the move by hand in a hex editor. Cut has an index of 15 (see here) so you'll want to edit the 16th file within the .narc as it will also include a blank move.

        Hex editing is something you're going to have to learn to do eventually if you want to hack gen 4; the tools available just aren't reliable enough to be used on their own. That said, I've got a Nightmare module you can use to edit moves easily and without breaking anything; it's attached to this post. Just run Nightmare, open the appropriate narc (using the "open Rom" tab"), open the included Attack Data Module, and edit whatever you want.

            In HGSS it's a/0/1/0, Platinum's equivalent is mentioned a few posts up. If you're editing Diamond or Pearl for some reason it'll be the same as Platinum, but without the "pl_" part in the filename.

                I don't think there's a complete list around, but this tool has most of them listed: https://hackromtools.altervista.org/dpp-attack-editor/. That particular effect can't be done just by changing move effect data unfortunately (I've tried it myself in XY, it didn't work); it'd require modifying the battle engine itself.
