    Don't change what you don't know. What you have done is ruined the ROM, probably. Don't edit the Garbage Pallettes, as they could be important.

        Unless you kept a backup, no. Start again, and don't be so reckless. Learn what goes where before you edit it. As in, learn where the sprite you are going to edit goes.

        HackMew has provided a way to save your ROM in his toolbox section, if I remember correctly...

          Like, for example, adding some ice/snowy tiles into say Route 101? I've seen people use tiles on places they aren't in.

          I'm not really sure how to explain it.

          Are you sure that the warped to spot is correct xD
          No, this is an A-Map warp, not a warp script.

            Hello there, I have a few questions which I have failed to find a decent answer to on the forums so far:

            1. I have heard that in Generation 3 Unown has many forms despite not using the 25 extra Pokémon spaces allocated to it. How are all these various forms achieved? And is it easily replicated for other Pokémon? (so I could have more than one appearance for certain pokémon)

            2. About Deoxys forms in Generation 3, how do they work? Do they work as taking up a Pokémon place per form (so taking up 4 places or 3 instead of the normal 1), or do they work similar to the Unown? If done like the Unown, is it possible to enable this for other pokemon? And if so, can form changes be forced by some means?

            3. If the first is right, is it possible to have different looking forms having different stats/moves?

            4. About moves. I have read some confusing posts about them. I seem to have gotten the impression that there are only a certain amount of moves to be allocated between all the pokemon, meaning to add a move to a pokemon, I would have to remove one from either that or another one. (For example, if I wanted to give Bulbasaur the ability to gain Whirlwind through levelling up, I would have to say.. remove Whirlwind from Pidgey). Is this correct?

            Oh, and in case it was not obvious, I am using Generation 3 games. Fire-Red to be exact.

                I've had that problem before, what I did was:

                Make the warp into map 1 Ht and 1Wdth bigger, then save, then make it 1 wdth and 1 ht smaller.

                    It's a tutorial in "hackmew's knowledge" but it requires you to know exactly what you did wrong.

                      Make the map 1 Height and 1 Width Point Bigger. Save. Then Do the opposite.

                      yeah... I tried that and it didn't work, but if I make it bigger and save it works... so I just adjusted the maps so it will be ok in gameplay. Thanks

                      A similar thing happened to the front sprite, except that just the black disappeared. Does anyone know what'd be happening here?
                      Hm...
                      You said that the black has vanished into thin air...
                      Does than mean you're recycling the old palletes the original POKéMON in the generations use, or are you using your own palletes?
                      Anyways, you also need to insert the palletes to the ROM...
                      I have a tutorial on how to do it. Probably, it'll help.

                      About the backsprite...
                      Does the backsprite uses the same palletes as your front sprite?

                            How do I insert an ASM function into Fire Red?
                            I was looking to use Mastermind_X's shiny hack for a celebi (editing 28 to BF)

                              Hello there, I have a few questions which I have failed to find a decent answer to on the forums so far:

                              1. I have heard that in Generation 3 Unown has many forms despite not using the 25 extra Pokémon spaces allocated to it. How are all these various forms achieved? And is it easily replicated for other Pokémon? (so I could have more than one appearance for certain pokémon)

                              2. About Deoxys forms in Generation 3, how do they work? Do they work as taking up a Pokémon place per form (so taking up 4 places or 3 instead of the normal 1), or do they work similar to the Unown? If done like the Unown, is it possible to enable this for other pokemon? And if so, can form changes be forced by some means?

                              3. If the first is right, is it possible to have different looking forms having different stats/moves?

                              4. About moves. I have read some confusing posts about them. I seem to have gotten the impression that there are only a certain amount of moves to be allocated between all the pokemon, meaning to add a move to a pokemon, I would have to remove one from either that or another one. (For example, if I wanted to give Bulbasaur the ability to gain Whirlwind through levelling up, I would have to say.. remove Whirlwind from Pidgey). Is this correct?

                              Oh, and in case it was not obvious, I am using Generation 3 games. Fire-Red to be exact.
                              1.Hmm, not sure. Have a go yourself.

                              2. It is a different form each game. So basically, only 1 form exists in EACH ROM, and it changes when in another game. Basically, in Emerald (for example), there isn't a Power or Defence form. Just Speed.

                              3. Hmm... Unless they were in different pokemon spaces (as in 2 Forms take up 2 pokemon), i'd say no.

                              4. Yes and no. You can remove a move from ANY pokemon at all, to make Moves available. So you can rmove Harden from Kakuna and put Fire Blast on Beedrill.


                              I have a question. You know how you can add new items to a hack? Well, I wanted to add a new evolution stone into Firered, without deleting old ones. How would I set the pokemon to evolve by said stone?

                                3. A shame.

                                4. Hmmm.. thats annoying, but thank you for the answer.

                                  How is the last one annoying? It isn't when you know how (PS Most evolved Pokemon have moves listed twice, once at Level 1, and again at Lv 9 for example. They could be deleted to help free up space!)

                                  The only way you can "add" items is to replace the ???-items, but the items can only be Key Items without an effect, such as a ticket for something. If you want those new items to have an effect, like evolving a Pokémon, you'd have to hack the game engine, which could be quite difficult. I know, because I've tried myself to let a Pokémon evolve with a ???-item, and you can't even use them. (Not even if you set that item as the item needed for evolution for the specified Pokémon.) Maybe what you can do, is try to find the effect-data for the evolution stones (don't ask me, I wouldn't know where to look), and set that as the effect for one of the ???-items. But, I believe that it would need some repointing.

                                    Annoying from the fact I would have to go back and remove moves in order to add more , rather than just adding more! Though, thats a good point, they do often have moves set before they can even evolve. Should be a good way of harvesting enough moves to update the various Pokémon.

                                    Does anyone know how to insert battle backgrounds?
