    Hey, I'm pretty new to this, but i really wanna give this a go, so i would be extremely grateful is someone would point me in the write direction.

    I've started a hack of Pokemon Ruby, and so far i know how to change the wild pokemon you meet on routes. What i wanna know is, how can i change the pokemon other trainers use against you in a battle and is there a way that i can add new pokemon to the game. I wanna put in Pichu Bros. as a wild pokemon, and obviously i need to know how to add their sprite and name to the game. I know how to edit evolution and attacks and stats so thats not a problem. Please help :)

            Tools you'll need:
            to edit sprites use unlzgba or pokepic
            for data there are many tools for changing data for pokemon for ruby
            what i use is:

            BaseEdit
            Dexter
            pattED
            Theres also pokemon amplifier 2004 and 2006

            im pretty sure theres a guide on changing pokemon's sprites in the
            tutorials section by Scizz

            heres another question: how do i add more moves a pokemon can learn as it levels
            in pokemon amplifier 2006 everythings in german @[email protected]

                Thankyoo, thats very helpful :) Only problem is, that Dexter programme keeps telling me theres an error and closes everything.
                Another question is, can i change the sprite of my trainer (who you play as) and is there an archieve somewhere to find pre-made sprites because i dont know how to do it myself.

                Hey all! It's me again...

                This time, I wanna ask the offset limit of both Ruby and FireRed ROMS...

                Whenever we make scripts, we're always asked what offsets to use, right..?

                Spoiler:
                Example..,
                $800000
                $801000
                $802000
                $803000
                $804000


                Since I'm currently hacking Ruby, and it's almost reaching 805000.., I'm starting to fear that maybe I could go beyond the limit...

                Thanks in advance and good day!

                    I'd doubt that you're over the limit. I'm pretty sure that, as long as there is free space in the rom, there is enough space for a script.

                    Try using a hex editor. Programs won't include everything, a hex editor will.

                      Without Size enlargment you have free offsets until $FFFFF0
                      And With size enlargment... uhm i dont know ^^".

                        Are you sure you extracted all the needed files for the Overworld Editor? And what ROM are you trying to edit? Also, which version of the Overworld Editor are you using?

                        Without specifying the things above it's almost impossible to help you.

                          Well, I've never attempted Pokemon rom hacking before. So keep that in mind while answering my question.

                          So how hard it it, for a person that has never ROM hacked, to replace the sprites, stats, names, types*, ect. of a Pokemon? And what would be the easiest way (if any) of doing it? I don't want to change the story or anything, just the Pokemon.

                          *when I say types, I don't mean adding news ones or anything. I just mean changing the type of the Pokemon from say, Water to Fire, or something similar.

                          Thanks for any and all help. :nervous:

                            A-Text or any hex editor with .tlb support. That is for the description.
                            For the weight etc. you could use Dexter.
                            Keep in mind that Dexter doesn't support very good (I would say at all) any FR/LG ROMs due to few differences in the Pokédex structure.

                                Save the Pokémon (or another pic) you want to replace, and import yours.
                                BUT: It has to be as big or smaller than the original one (you CAN make it bigger, but it´s better not to.)

                                AND: always press "write to ROM" (to save it)

                                        Okay I recently inserted a new tile in my game.

                                        Its a tree tile btw.

                                        Well instead of it overlapping the player , the player overlaps it

                                        How is this fixed?

                                          I have just started mapping and I use Advnace map. In attachment is the map I have created and A screeny of it in VBA. The place where it shows the player standing near a tree should be having a sea instead. So any way to solve it???

                                            Change the border block to water. The border block option is above the tiles.


                                            @ JoyRide: Check the Movement Permissions View tab on AdvanceMap. There will be a whole bunch of 1's and C's. 1 means you can't walk over it, and C means you can. Change it by tapping on the numbers on the collum.

                                            @ Quilavas Master: Check the Documents and Tutorial Forum.
