        Yes, that should work for me. Can we plan to have an hour or two window there in case something comes up for either of us? I'm usually very free on Sundays so if we need to delay that's fine but I don't wanna mess up on activity for finals, y'know.

        Hope we have a good series!

        yeah, I said 12 your time i.e. 8 pm my time so that it isn't too late here in case he wave to delay it a bit, so it should be fine.

        yup let's have some good games! :)

        Hey again, sorry for this rushed request, but is there any chance we can postpone this for 2-3 hours, which would be 2pm or 3pm your time? I understand it's probably too late for this, so it's obviously perfectly fine if you can't and I will be there at the time we originally scheduled regardless! Just asking in case postponing it a couple of hours is irrelevant to you.
        (btw, i can still stay around a few hours even after 3 pm your time which is 11 pm here, so even if the games take a while it wont be a problem).

      Hey Crystal_! When you wanna fight for SPL? I'm GMT-6 and can play Friday at 3pm-3:30pm, 4pm-4:30pm, or Sunday at 8pm my time - but on Sunday I will be GMT-5 because of the switch to Daylight Savings.
      1. Crystal_

        Friday 3 pm then. Not ideal but I should be able to make it.

      Speaking of rby randbats, think it might be a good idea to also use your levels for the challenge cup?

      Also while we are at it, is there any reason metapod and kakuna only knows harden on randbats when they can get their pre evolution moves unless they are caught that way?
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        They actually know Poison Sting/Tackle and String Shot as well. Maybe it's something that's been added recently and you missed it.
        I haven't played CC much (mostly cause it's not in the ladder), but given its nature I don't think levels are so important since it's meant to be unbalanced anyway (in a fun way). I don't even remember right now if they use the same levels as randbats or if all mons are at level 100.
        Feb 10, 2017
      2. Typhlito
        Typhlito
        I think they use the same/similar levels as randbats but fair enough. I do regularly make rby cc tours on ps so I was just wondering about it.

      yo! big fan of your rom hacks so far, played pyrite a bunch and playing randofuser now. just a quick question on randofuser though as the guide wasn't entirely clear on the issue; so if i have a Meowygon (meowth but with porygon fused to it), will it just not evolve since i can't trade it with an upgrade? or does it evolve at some level higher than 28? thank you.
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        Hey, thanks for the kind words! Porygon evolution type was replaced with a lv 37 evolution, so your Meowygon will evolve at the average of the two, level 32, assuming you chose to average BST. If you didn't, it will evolve at level 29.

      hey, have you seen the whole "pokemon red RNG" thing? you can save on a given tile, hard reset the game, and then, amazingly enough, get the same encounter every time! Video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkhb3t6xjec ; sorry if you already knew about this but do you have anything interesting to offer about it?
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        it happens because from the moment when the save is loaded all the button presses are made with exactly the same timing every time. He's already pressing a direction button when the file is loaded and then he doesn't release the button until another direction button is already pressed, so the timing is the same every time, and the rng updates exactly the same everytime. It remains like that until he's prompted to press A/B in the battle, as the timing of that press ins't repeatable without the use of external tools.

        also: a couple years ago or so, I played through a bit of one of the earlier versions you made where pokemon didn't obey you past a certain level based on your badges -- really glad you changed it to a level cap instead, that by itself was a fantastic idea to make sure the game was never easy
        Aug 3, 2016
      3. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        that lady is missing until you have a certain amount of badges... i think i made it 7 badges, but im not 100% sure right now. it isn't there the first time you get to goldenrod though, as you only had 3 badges then; those moves would be too broken that early but the game corner lady isn't always absent.

        yep I figured that was the case based on your earlier reply. I'll keep that in mind for the next time I play it

      So you are the RBY expert, so exactly how dangerous is the old man glitch in Pokemon Red? Am I in any danger of corrupting my cartridge?
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        i'm not sure but there might be a slim chance of running into a glitch pokemon with the potential to corrupt your save. I dont think so, but yeah. At the very least most if not all glitch pokemon will corrupt you hall of fame data.

      Hey dude, would you happen to know of any weird quirks with Psych Up in GSC? I'm wondering if, for example, some oversight might lead to Miltank's defense stage hitting +6 before getting capped, thereby leading to a Marowak-like rollover when used against a +6 lax.
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        regular -6 to +6 style stat modifications always cap the stat at 999, it's with reflect/ls or boosting items where the problem is at.
        afaik. you cant never be 100% sure with tehse things you know, but can't check right now

      I hope you don't mind me posting here, but I somehow managed to crash Pyrite with the "This Game Pak is designed only for use on the Game Boy Color." error by talking to the psychic mon in the lab by cerulean (the one that has the mr. mime oversprite).

      Also in general fun hack :) is giga drain anywhere in Kanto? I wanna teach it to meganium since it's kinda bad by nature

        also, sorry for spamming you with replies, but did I accidentally sequence break something? the rocket grunt that's supposed to have the machine part disappeared after I found him on nugget bridge. the kid behind the two long houses in cerulean says that the man is gone (despite never seeing him?) and that his itemfinder is going crazy (my itemfinder can't sense anything)... did the grunt just go somewhere where I couldn't find him or is he actually gone?

      4. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        yeah mewtwo is supposed to disappear right away, it's weird because I had never stumbled upon that bug or had anyone else report it.
        anyway, the machine part is inside the lab, in a table, and the itemfinder thing is that there's a berserk gene item hidden in the water near the cave entrance. All of this assuming nothing else glitched up lol.

      I was looking at your Missingno info. Do you know more about why the Old Man trick doesn't work in Japanese games?
      Surfing on Cinnabar Island causes no wild Pokemon, but I've yet to see an analysis of the tile behavior change. Or related things like differences in how the player's name is stored (if any).
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        I have never checked the japanese games so I can't really tell you much. The glitch (water tile mismatch) could've been introduced when the english version was made instead of being native to the original japanese games.

      hi, for your RBY research post, does it say anything about the faint check for the player when Explosion/Selfdestruct is used? I can't seem to find it. We're discussing Self-KO clause, so we are wondering if there ever is a mechanical draw.

      Hey crystal, I love the research you've done for the max DV Coin Case exploit in G/S, and I've asked before about specific DV spreads for Hidden Power, but I remember not understanding your explanation on it. Could you give me an example of what my PC should look like to get a HP Bug/Water in gen 2 (plus max stat EXP)?
      1. Crystal_
        Crystal_
        That's more complex because you just can't write the same value into all addresses. I suggest you first do the trick exactly like shown in the video (thus maxing DVs and stat exp), and then use the coin case as a memory editor setup (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffZjCabeNr4) to write custom values into the DV addresses (for first party Pokemon: addresses D040 and D041).

        For example, if I remember correctly, HP bug requires 13/13/15/15 DVs, so you need to write DD at D040 and FF at D041, where DD corresponds to hexadecimal of 13/13 and FF corresponds to hexadecimal of 15/15.

        In short, set up your items and party as shown in the perfect DVs and EVs video and execute the trick. Then set up your items and party as shown in the "memory editor" video and execute it twice, each time with the corresponding Box 9 name to match D040DD and D041FF respectively. Please, what the video linked above and get back to me if there's something you have trouble understanding.
