How to enable the National Dex in Fire-Red/Leaf-Green/Emerald

It's been a while since I discovered the script part where your National Dex is enabled in Fire-Red, Leaf-Green and Emerald.
So I thought it's about time to let the others know how it's done, so they can use it in their own Hacks.

Requirements: Fire-Red/Leaf-Green/Emerald (US) ROM, ScriptED/Hex-Editor.

The whole secret is this piece of Hex code:
- Fire-Red/Leaf-Green: 256F01
- Emerald: 25F301

Which, when decompiled by ScriptED, would turn out as this command:
- Fire-Red/Leaf-Green: special 0x16F
- Emerald: special 0x1F3

When used in your script, your normal Pokédex will be turned into the National Dex, and allows all Pokémon to be listed.

A sample script for FR/LG in ScriptED could look like this:
#org 0x800000
checkflag 0x10A
if 1 jump 0x800050
special 0x16F
setflag 0x10A
fanfare 0x13E
msgbox 0x800100
callstd 0x6

#org 0x800050
msgbox 0x800070
callstd 0x6

#org 0x800070
= Like your new POKéDEX?

#org 0x800100
= Your POKéDEX was upgraded!
Alternatively, or when you prefer scripting by Hex-Editor, you can use the Hex command listed above and insert it in your script.

Keep in mind that this method only works in Fire-Red, Leaf-Green and Emerald ROMs. Ruby/Sapphire uses a different value for the command, which hasn't been discovered yet.

How could I apply this script to the technology guy in Pallet? I compiled the script example using ScriptED as it was, no modifications. Then I tried to assign the script offset code to the technology guy using Advance Map (800000 is what I used) but it didn't work...
Can you explain how to make the script work correctly?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Never mind, it works! Had a zero too much

You could use an 'call' command to find the other script.

It would be most helpful if someone had this figured out for Sapphire. How long would something like that take?

Well.. In R/S the only problem is that the Pokémon are not shown in the PokéDex, but they do evolve..
In FR/LG/E they fixed this, you need the NationalDex before those Pkmn can evolve..

That is so offtopic. You're doing it again. YOU DON'T POST IN A THREAD OVER A MONTH OLD! (Though I also would like to know whatever happened to scizz)

blueray, I'm giving you a warning. You again bumped a thread over a month old without any reference to the topic in your post. Do NOT do this again.

spenceroone3, please report instead of posting basically the same thing the member did. Don't discuss people's bans here, please.
