  • Hi,

    I'm working on a hack of Pokemon Gold called Pokemon Darkness Falls. My team is Team Haxorus. We plan on adding the fairy type. Can you help us?

    Thank you,
    Peter Swanton

    Sorry, I've been busy lately and so I've been declining personal requests. I suggests you ask for help on Skeetendo forums where there are many experienced Gen 1/2 hackers that will be able to help you: https://hax.iimarckus.org/
    I also encourage you to switch over to pokecrystal if you haven't started your hack yet. In the long run, it makes thing more easy and accesible and more people will probably be willing to help you as well. https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=378692
    Hey Crstyal_ question about Pokedex Entries:
    If you do the "All Starter Trick"(ya know, change box, shut system down in the correct moment etc.), you won't get a Pokedex Entry.
    If you were to make an egg with e.g. (cloned) totodile and Ditto, and a totodile hatches, would it fix the no dex entry problem or not?

    tl;dr Does hatching eggs fix pokedex problems?

    Hi. Yes, if you hatch a Pokemon that is not registered in the Pokedex already it will become registered.

    because it does not sound true

    I don't know the details but the waggles are computed separately from the capture check assuming the later is not passed. There's a single random number generated for the capture check, which is compared to the wild mon's "catch rate" value factoring on its HP, status, ball modifier, etc. Then, there's another random number generated especifically to determine the wobbles but it's too weird and complex iirc.

    had a question i thought you'd be able to answer since i was curious, would appreciate it if you could help me out:

    how do cartridges work to detect things like making sure thick club raises marowak's attack or stick boosts farfetch'd's crit ratio? do they scan for the pokedex number? the exact name? something else?
    Hi Crystal_! Are you the guy behind the randofuser that I have played to death? I am planning a project retarding Pokemon, randomization and battle simulation using cellular automata. I was wondering if I could get a hold of you and ask you a few questions regarding this? Have a good day!
    Hi, DHR and CRoll sent me your way with an interesting gen 1 glitch that I've tripped up and neither of them have heard about. Having only completed the first gym my runtime jumped from 1:04 (slow yes I know) to 255:59 (evidence on orange islands discord) was wondering if you'd heard of this?
    When do you want to play for roapl? I'm -4. Weekend evenings/afternoons are usually best for me.

    hey, GMT+2 here. What about Sunday 5 PM your time?
    urban
    urban
    Perfect. I'll catch you on smogtours.
    hey man we play spl

    i'm gmt -6. what times are you available? i can flex to fit a good amt of suggested times so lmk your availability and we'll work from there :O

    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!
    Crystal_
    Crystal_
    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! :)
    Crystal_
    Crystal_
    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).
    Hi, can you play Sunday at like 3-4 pm? I am GMT +1 as well
    Crystal_
    Crystal_
    yeah, sounds good, let's settle for 4 pm. if anything comes up ill let u know asap
    Alexander.
    Alexander.
    Alright, I won't be home Monday-Friday so Sunday is the best day for me, hope it will work
    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.
    Crystal_

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

    Just realized I never replied to this to confirm, but yes I will see you there :)
    Hello, when would you like to play? Tomorrow or Saturday would be best for me, preferably as late in the day my time (EST) as you can manage.
    Hi, when can you play for spl? I can't play on saturday, and Id rather play on thursday evening/friday afternoon (not after 5 pm though), although sunday can always work
    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?
    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.

    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.
    hey man, when do you want to play for the spl? we presumably still got the same timezone and I am pretty flexible this week.
    Crystal_
    Crystal_
    that late? I can make it but wouldnt it be better to have some more margin?

    I forgot you are old :^)
    yeah I basically have the whole day. We can do sometimes in the afternoon. 2pm maybe?
    Crystal_
    Crystal_
    lol, yeah 2 pm sounds more appealing :P
    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.
    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.

    much appreciated!
    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?
    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.
    i played and really enjoyed pyrite recently (might even play it again, considering it only took a couple days because i played at 8x speed or something). if you're still updating it and want any feedback/constructive criticism i'd be happy to provide some

    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
    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.
    Muk
    Muk
    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?
    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.
    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
