    Does anyone else have the issue I'm having where, after pressing start on the Game Freak logo screen, you only get a black screen?

    (I double-checked that I patched against the correct revision of Pokémon FireRed Version; patching against rev1 causes the ROM to crash on boot for want of a valid address to which to jump.)

    I'm getting that same problem. It also freezes for me when I pick my first pokemon. Did you figure out how to get past that

    I found him and proceeded. I really like this but there's something that really breaks the hack for me. Gym 7 is simply impossible. I don't know if this happens to everyone, but for me it's not possible because no matter how many times I try it never aligns. It's like the game "forgets" the part that is outside the screen. Does anyone have any way to get past this?

    Not sure if you're still interested in the answer but you could either modify the movement permissions in A-Map to be able to walk through a wall, or just use Fire Red's walk through walls cheat to get past it. It's what I did, as it's a crazy difficult timing process. Even with savestates.

    honestly it's just perseverance and save states. in not the wtw code for fire red should work to bypass the boulder nonsense

    Did you try patching it with the other FR version as well? That's why I always have multiple base rom versions on me. Works 70% of the time.

    A little something I found just now

    For some reason in Sirius only, Asphere in Sirius form doesn't have its second frame in its animation.

    I took a look at the ROM in PGE and the offset pointer for the animation frame and the static sprite used elsewhere in boxes/etc (front sprite) somehow ended up swapped. Just swap the pointers back (or just repoint the animation sprites) and it fixes this.

    Change Front Sprite pointer to F02590
    Change Animation pointer to F44920

    Aside from Machu this game has my favorite fakemon in any fangame I have seen. Thank you so much! :D

    I love the little steel goat! Folifarig should be a real evolution! When I saw it for the first time in a gym battle, it caught me off guard. It's extremely well designed. But my award goes to Rollder, had great defense curl rollout memories with the little fella. I was not a fan of his evolution though because Rollder was just so perfect haha and the loss of the bug type. And I'm also sure Machu must be a troll Pokemon based off the muscular Pikachu pics on the internet lol.

    I also love the relaxing space time theme set in Ravenplume City. It really sets a warm welcoming humble vibe of life.

    Is there a cheat code that unlocks the national dex for Vega? A lot of cool fakemons and their evolutions are locked behind the postgame

    Not one simple one. Not that I know of. There's a method. I can't remember it right now, though. But I have been meaning to get back into the game so let me figure it out and I will report back.

    Ok, thanks. Do know that I'm emulating on mobile, so if it's something that can only be done on PC I'm probably out of luck lol.

    Okay, yeah, I might not be able to help you then. I remember how to do it for VBA, though. Enter this code to enable the National Dex.

    320265900001
    820266446258

    That's not enough though. After that, catch a wild Pokemon that is in the National Dex. Use a Wild Pokemon Code modifier. This one is an easy catch which will activate the National Dex:

    This is weird. I don't have any cheats enabled but I just came across two high-level Buizel in Route 508. One was 23. The other was level 24. All the other Pokemon are between levels 12-16 so I don't know why the two Buizel are so high leveled.

    I'm playing Pokemon Altair. I want a Girafarig, but it's only in Pokemon Sirius. Does anybody know the Wild Pokemon Mod Code for Girafarig in Altair? It's not the same one as Emerald. Using the Girafarig one from Emerald has me encountering a Bronzong.

    It worked! Thanks alot man, really appreciate it

    No problem. Literally. I needed to figure it out myself. Ended up using a full team of National Dexmon because the ones available before the postgame are so lame.

    Agreed, although now I've run into a slight problem.
    It seems that unlocking the national dex has screwed with a few events in the story, such as Mos meeting you after beating the 1st gym and your friend/rival encountering two Team DH grunts in the cave. If I try speaking to Mos, the game freezes, but thankfully speaking to my rival causes the event to play out without a problem.
    After the cave though I came across a DH grunt, and talking to him froze my game.

    Well, the trick here is activating the cheat, evolve the mon and then immediately turn off the cheat, making sure the nat dex isn't triggered when checking the dex. This way you can avoid all the glitches.

    Alright I'll try that. Have to restart my whole game though lol.

    What the heck? I had no idea something like that could happen. I went through the entire game and the only (technically gamebreaking) glitch I encountered was at the Pokemon League. A girl who was normally standing away from the entrance to the chambers of the Elite 4 and Champion (the one talking about healing items) was instead blocking the entrance. WTW allowed me to get past her. I activated the National Dex just before my 3rd Gym Badge battle.

    Side Note: This game really is a load of f**king bullshit. You can't buy Revives until after you become Champion? There are only 3~ Revives you can find? F that. I cheated them in. How are you supposed to heal fainted Pokemon during the League challenge?

    Try Vega Minus in the Sideshow Case. It solves this and some other annoying difficulty problems.
