Hi,

I'm making a hack of Pokemon Gold called Pokemon Mahogany, and I want Dewgong to evolve into Lapras at level 36. I have a tool called The One GS Evo/Move Editor that allows me to let Seel evolve into Dewgong at level 28, but when I set Dewgong to evolve into Lapras at level 36, when I play the game, at level 36, Dewgong evolves into Lapras, and the game asks if I want to learn Ice Beam; however, in the beginning of the next battle, Lapras's exp. bar is maxed out, and when it knocks out the opposing Pokemon, it continuously gains levels until it is level 255, then resets to 0, gains levels until level 33, asks if I want to learn all the moves it learns after level 36, and then asks if I want to learn all the moves Lapras could learn from level 1 to level either 29, 33, or 35, depending on the algorithm. Is there any way to fix this?

Thank you,

    I am not familiar with hex editing, so if that's what you're referring to, I have not tried that yet.

      It's not necessarily changing the "levelup speed" as the amount of EXP it takes to max it, the game takes care of the speed automatically based on the EXP. Thoretically you could change the EXP to whatever you wanted.

        every pokémon is divided into an experience group which does in fact decide the amount of exp. it takes to max it
        the "speed" solely references the relative rate of gain
        the experience gained is based on a lookup table and is not decided individually on each pokémon; each mon is assigned a group to determine its relative exp gain
        these groups are referred to as erratic, fast, medium fast, medium slow, slow, and fluctuating
        sort of like how ivs, evs, and shiny pokémon (before 4th gen) are/were all communal standards despite not being officially referred to that (nintendo instead just calls each pokémon individual and ivs are the pokémon's potential while evs are the mon's base stats)

        so yes, you could edit the lookup table to change the max exp to whatever you wanted, but you would be changing it for every pokémon in the same group

          Yes, that is exactly what I was saying. The XP groups are different because they take a different amount of XP to reach level 100 and when you change the category, you aren't changing the speed, you're changing the XP it needs to reach the highest level, which just so happens to have a different levelup speed since the XP requirements are distributed differently for each level. You basically regurgitated what I literally just said (you even quoted it) then tried to correct something which was not incorrect by pretending it was talking about something it wasn't.
