    Hello everyone, today I will teach everyone how to truelly make their hacks unique by replacing the generic in-battle messages.
    This is my first tutorial so forgive me if anything may be hard to follow, I will work on fixing anything that may hinder the learning process.


    Before I begin I need to credit bugmania for discovering 0xD7360, without this I would not have been able to follow it and find where the all the battle messages that they game has had locked away. I would also like to credit LocksmithArmy for his table on "pokemon characters" that made decoding and writing new battle messages so much easier. (the chart can be found in step 1)

    Alright now lets get started shall we.
    To start with let me share the information I have gathered while researching:

    3FB218 -- 3FEA26 are where all battle messages, this includes EVERY message you have ever seen in battle. It can be a lot of ground to cover.. But I will be giving a few tricks as to how to find specific messages quickly.

    3FDF3C -- 3FE513 are where a good some of pointers related to battle messages are stored, but not all of them. Why is this important? Well lets say you wanted to add a bigger message than the game already has inputted. You would have to re-point your new message to somewhere with a bit more space.


    Step One: Learning Letters and Commands
    Spoiler:
    First off open Your rom with any hex editor and go to 0x3FB218, this is where all battle messages are stored. Things may look a bit overwhelming at first but there is a pattern to it all. Everything here is editable, and a few important commands to know when editing a message, or even searching for one are the Hex/Commands:
    FB=\p - new line
    FD=\v - calls on data (like when learning a new attack or leveling up)
    FE=\n - new page
    FF=\x - ends a message (You will find the start of a new message right behind a FF)
    These are great and all but without knowing the letters your not going to make it very far.

    Step Two: Finding and Following a message
    Spoiler:

    When looking for a message, you will always find one right after a FF.

    For the sake of this tutorial I will be editing the (pokemon) used (attack) message.
    This can be found at 0x3FD57B. After properly decoding the message with the table found in step one I find that this message first calls on the name of the Pokemon, then says "used", and finally calls on the name of the attack chosen.

    Now with the picture above you can see there isn't much room to get creative with our message, we only have 11 bytes we can edit. The only way we are going to be able to fit a nice message in is if we re-point, luckily this is very easy.
    Its time to follow our pointer, depending on your hex editor this may be different.

    Your simply going to type in the offset in your search bar, only a little scrambled.
    Here we have the offset 3FD57B, so I would search 7B D5 3F 08. What this is doing is searching for where the offset for this message is stored.

    Hit ok and BOOM

    We found it.



    Step Three: Re-pointing your message
    Spoiler:

    So now that we found the pointer that tells the game where our message is located, lets change it so we can make one a little bigger.

    You can place it anywhere with free space, I recommend using Free Space Finder, but for this tutorial I already know I have free space at 0x800000
    Anyways here you will place your new pointer.
    Remember to always put in your pointers in backwards, your offset may be 0x800000 but the game will only go if you reverse the order like 00 00 80 ending with a 08 to tell the rom it is a pointer.
    Alright now lets go to our offset.

    Hopefully you will see "FF" Hex Data, this is unused blank data that you will be able to write over. If your offset leads you to a bunch of used Hex, go back and lead it to something you know has no data being used.



    Step Four: Lets Write
    Spoiler:

    Now we have a blank canvas, we can make our new message as long or as short as we want. Heck, you can even leave it entirely blank if you want to.
    Something to keep in mind is that some messages are universal, shared by both you and the opposing pokemon so just keep that in mind when writing your message.

    The (pokemon) used (attack) message is one of these universal messages.
    But because this is a tutorial and not a romhack I don't really mind if their are oddities by making a message completely talking about the player.

    So I will be adding in the following message:
    (pokemon) doesn't like your tone. However, it must obey... (pokemon) used (attack)!

    This translated in hex:
    FD 0F 00 D8 E3 D9 E7 E2 B4 E8 FE E0 DD DF D9 00 ED E3 E9 E6 00 E8 E3 E3 D9 AB FB DC E3 EB D9 EA D9 E6 B8 00 DD E8 00 E1 E9 E7 E8 FE E3 D6 D9 ED AD AD AD FB FD 0F 00 E9 E7 D9 D8 FE FD 01 FF

    Make sure you end it with FF, this tells the rom that the message is over.
    Now insert whatever message you want ingame, and save.

    Here are the results:



    Thats all, super easy stuff. I hope my tutorial wasn't to confusing, please help out each other in the comments if I am not around to do so.
    Credit would be much appreciated if you include this in your hack
    thanks,
    Smeeeeargle


    Edit: Eventually I will be providing a tool for easy translation. Its already half done, but I haven't had much time to finish it lately.

      Don't worry about this, your tutorial was very easy to follow and straightforward.
      It's something small, but this should help people who want to expand their messages larger than what A-text limits them to.

        Once I find the time I will add a table of all the more important message offsets.
        I really was hoping to add all that stuff originally but I have had no time as of late.

        Interesting research. I'm wondering what, personally, you had down as an idea to use this for? I hope it could be used for a feature similar to the one implemented in Platinum where the foe comes back into the screen to have a chat with you.

          This can be used for a wide range of thing, alone without ASM it simply replacing messages.
          However if someone was to get creative they could with a little assembly they could for sure add, special messages like "Oh! A shadow pokemon!" if one was to make a Colloseum or XD remake.
          If someone were to make a custom status affect, its in battle message can now be added to the game. With the information provided, if someone went back and traced a status effect they could even have the game ask if you'd like to use a status healer for the next turn.

          This information is a big chunk of the pokemon game considering how many battles we enter. Now that the information is out their its time for the community to make the real magic happen. Behind these messages is quite a bit of information to explore

                Great to hear that, come summer I will be including a tool that will translate English to hex to speed the overall process up.

                I would also like to point out that these letters and characters are not solely used for in-battle messages. You can use these find a lot of the games text, and then trace the text back to their actual functions

                    I already have the main part of done, It translates english to Hex perfectly. But for whatever reason it gets a bit buggy when you try to translate Hex to English. I won't be finishing it until may though, I've got a lot of art projects I put off that I need to finish.

                      By the way.....do you know at which offset is the defeating message located
                      Like bulbasaur fainted or something like that?

                        Thank you for this information. I was wondering how to change the descriptions of attacks, because I added 27 new attacks to Pokemon Emerald and couldn't change their descriptions. With this, I finally know which numbers to use for my new descriptions. Thanks for the help!

                          Yup, you can find that at 3FB40E-3FB419.
                          should look like this: FD 10 FE DA D5 DD E2 E8 D9 D8 AB FB FF

                          Here are a few message pointers straight out of my notes as well.
                          If you have any others you can't seem to find just let me know

                          3FCC8A -- ## = begins to store escape messages
                          3FCC74 - 88 = It's super effective
                          3FCBE4 -- F3 = A critical hit!
                          3FB31F -- 2D = Stop(space)learning/n/v01?

                              Is there any way to manipulate this in a script ... to which the bytes can be changed at the offsets by some command and then changed back at the end of the script?

                                Hi Smeargle, i have a question
                                If you have special message like:

                                - [Trainer] would like to battle
                                - [Trainer] is about to use [Pokemon]
                                - Will [player] change Pokemon?

                                The [Trainer], [Pokemon], and [Player] word, how to search them? What hex code of it? Or we just ignore it and search "... would like to battle"?
                                Thanks before

                                  For trainers there is two words: trainer class and name. Class's code is FD 1C and name's code is FD 1D. So full trainer name code is FD 1C 00 FD 1D.
                                  For Pokemon code is FD 0F, and for attacks - FD 01

                                  You are wrong here. FB is new page, and FE is new line.

                                      Hey guys, i need a help...I'm trying to replace the following text:
                                      [Trainer] is about to use [Pokemon]... for something like: [Trainer] is about to call the next pokémon...
                                      I've sucess at remove the "[Trainer] is about to use [Pokemon]..." message, but...the battle skipped the part of "...Will [player] change Pokemon? [YES/NO]" I deduced which all this is a single script, but, i need support to keep the part of "...Will [player] change Pokemon? [YES/NO]" I must re-write all the script in a free space? If "yes" is the answer...How i can put the data part of "[Trainer]" and "[Player]" and the "[YES/NO]" at the script? (Sorry if was a noob question, im beginner haha :v) I'll try to see here, but a answer is welcome =)

                                      * Great tutorial, easy to understand and very explained.

                                          Am I mistaken in thinking these can be changed with A-Text?

                                            Yep they can be changed with it. But that tool is known for the great amount of bugs it creates.

                                              Same question as Lance32497's:
                                              How do I know the values that combined with FD do something?

                                              Being more specific, my message will be (it's a message for the -ate abilities):
                                              "[Pokémon]'s [Ability] changed [Move] into [New move type]!"
                                              For example, "Glalie's Refrigerate changed Tackle into Ice-type!".

                                              Following the information here, I'll use FD 0F for Pokémon, FD 01 for move. But what about the ability and the new move type?

                                              If it's possible, good. I had another way, but I was not into the idea of having a different message per different ability, like "[Pokémon]'s Refrigerate changed [Move] into Ice-type!" for every Pokémon with Refrigerate. =S

                                                For example, "Glalie's Refrigerate changed Tackle into Ice-type!".

                                                First, for something so specific as an -ate ability, I think you're better off using setword http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7101031&postcount=230

                                                As for the buffers, a complete list probably exist somewhere (on people's computers), but I don't think it has ever been posted. You're better off just following the jumptable and reading it. last_copied_ability should be 0x17, and I think attacker's ability is 0x18. Not sure which one loads type, if there even is one. I mean. If there isn't already an automatic buffer for type, its only the 3 -ate abilities and normalize. You don't need one for every Pokemon.

                                                Btw, not sure if you already know this, but according to Youtube, there isn't even a message for -ate abilities in Gen VI. It changes type without informing the player.
