This is a GitHub repository containing the source code of Pokémon Red and Blue, disassembled and refactored to human-readable (and editable!) asm.
While the code is refactored, its functionality is untouched, and the ROMs you built with this code will be identical to the one that is on US Pokémon Red or Blue cartridge.
It is a really cool and interesting project!
@Siphonay How many more types are there room for?
@not_on_pizza I don't actually know but my guess would be that there would be a maximum number of 255 types since every other thing is the game is coded using 8-bit adresses
@Siphonay aren't there a few forks fixing the present big when it's possible?
@Siphonay thanks for the link.
@Siphonay I used this to make a build of the game (actually their ruby source code) so that when you go to a pokemon center and try to heal your pokemon the person says "sorry our systems are down", so you can't heal them there.
also when you white-out the game softlocks :3
@blackle healing machine broke
@Siphonay There's one of crystal too! I don't know if there's one of gold and silver, but probably.
@Felthry there is, and also ones for ruby/sapphire and emerals
@Siphonay I did not know there was one for RSE!
@Siphonay This is amazing, but how have Nintendo's lawyers not caught wind of it?
there's no money in chasing this down, so they're not motivated
they'll probably shut down this repo but they're not like screaming into phones for it
and once it's out there, it's potentially out there forever anyway
(plus it'd probably remind people to buy the remakes if those are/will be a thing? maybe they got smart about how this 'viral' thing works)
