Quite simple. Take a look at its log: you'll see the amount of bytes needed by each command enclosed in brackets. Besides, why would you need to know the number of bytes?

Now, changing the prices of items is easy enough, but my question concerns how to change the amout of money Trainers give out when you defeat them. Is there any way to change or edit this amount so that, say, your average Bug Catcher will give you only 2 dollars and, say, a Lady will reward you with a cool 20 bucks?

Edit to add: Is it also possible to alter the amount of money you start the game with? (This is a Ruby hack, for reference :) )
Yes, there is. You can use A-Trainer beta (which is a little buggy while displaying the total amount of money, fixed already anyway). You can't change the amount directly, though. This is the formula I was able to reverse:

Code:
MoneyAmount = MaxPkmnLvl * ClassRate * 4
MaxPkmnLvl is the highest level of the Pokémon the trainer has. ClassRate is a value it depends on the class.

And yes, you can alter the amount of money you get at the very beginning. Just wait till I release one of my new tool.

So I replace the image offset with 00800000. Of course, I cannot use that again. (I tried, and whenever i got to the part where the image would be, the game freezes) I used HackMew's Free Space Finder, bu it doe the same thing. Is there a way, or a program, to extend the dataspace of a gba rom? (I am trying to Hack Pokemon LG)
You misunderstood the point of expanding the ROM. In your case you just need to find some free space, that's it. There are quite a lot of tutorials around there, so please take a look.

      Not sure if this is simple but I am looking for the flag db in the hex so I could make another assigned one similar to the pokedex one so it adds a new button to the options menu. Thanks for any help ^.^

            This requires palette editing. Use the black from bulbasaur for the black in turtwig, and that should fix the problem. The black in D/P/P is different, so it is technically a non-existent color.

              i edited the pallete with a-pallete to the turtwig's colors so it shouldn't happen right?

                I'm using AdvanceMap 1.92 and I've given the player a basement bedroom instead of an upstairs one, just for kicks.

                The upstairs (living room) warp works perfectly. Standing on the warp spot and walking left (down the stairs) sends you to the next map (4.1, which is downstairs)

                The warp downstairs warps you back (to 4.0) but for some reason, it only works if you again walk left? I need it to work when I walk right, but I can't see any way to change what it does. I deleted it and made a new warp, same problem.

                I really have no idea what I did. I didn't change the warp at all (except moving its location) so I don't see why it messed up.

                  Im still kind of new to Rom Hacking, I need some help here. Im hacking Pokemon FireRed and theres some stuff I need to know.

                  Sorry if these have been asked before.

                  1) Is there a way to edit the Pokemon Types, I dont mean types of Pokemon, I want to know if I can edit the Types themselves.

                  2) How do I change the Wild Encounter/Trainer Battle music for a map?

                  3) I need a script editor, Ive looked for one?

                  4) Can I add Text and events, i.e Make Groudon battle event in FireRed, if I can, how?

                  5) Can I make it so you your player starts with the National Dex, or is given the National dex instead of the Kanto Dex?

                    for editing the types use YAPE:
                    http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=135173 <-YAPE

                    script editor use XSE:
                    http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=85025 <-HackMews Tools Factory

                    cant really help you with the other stuff. I am a noob aswell.

                    My question now: What offset do I put into Shiny Hack Maker to make the shiny pokemon appear?

                      YAPE edits the Types of Pokemon, Not the Types themselves, I want to change what types are weak to what.

                              Technically it shouldn't. Try downloading Irfanview, and changing the palettes there. Then import it via unlz.gba, change the offsets necessary via FSF, and voila, you have a successful Turtwig sprite

                                  I also have a question.
                                  Is there a D/P UnLZ equivalent? A program that can insert Pokemon sprites into D/P?

                                  ~Flareon.

                                  By editing the program's source and recompiling it, eventually. Besides, you can have unlimited savegames.

                                  What do you mean exactly by "flag db"?

                                    You could move the player off screen and lock the camera on the OW you want to move about and give it a movement setting of copy ing the players movements. How ever you aren't really free to do any movements. ust like you would with the player itself. It's an illusion of control

                                      I know that may be possible because it sometimes happens as a glitch.

                                          I think you have to use a Hex Editor. Try looking in the Tutorial section. :3

                                          Can someone direct me to a Pokemon Cry Editor tutorial? I can't seem to find one, and I don't know how to edit cries. D:
