Default Pokemon Ruby codes question

There's so many codes for catching pokémon of your choice, and editing the stats of the pokémon in your 6 slots, but there aren't any codes for changing which pokémon are in the 6. Since, for some reason, VBA crashes every time I throw a pokéball, a code like that would be incredibly useful.

I started trying to change one of the Slot 1 Stat codes to see if I could get which pokémon actually occupies the slot, but to no avail. Is it possible?

Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe the community here just didn't have an answer?

For example I don't like pokemon, at all, so of course I wouldn't know much about it, but I do know a little bit about emulation in general. VGA crashing when you throw a pokeball might be a sign of a bad dump. Try to get another copy of it and see if that one works.

Yeah...I would have helped, except I have no knowledge of Pokemon cheats, for the most part.

That's a much better answer than leaving me to think that this community didn't want to help, as opposed to couldn't.

Given up on using codes etc, gonna do the whole thing with the starter pokemon.

As for the crashing thing, it does it with Emerald and Sapphire too. So meh. It's VBA's problem.

Thanks anyway.

Or maybe you're corrupting your save file by using all these gameshark codes! There's a reason it's generally observed to be a device without guarantee and with the warning that bad stuff can happen to your games.

If VBA was the issue, then there'd be a billion posts elsewhere (since Pokémon is a relatively popular game) about the game crashing. The fact that the crashing is only isolated to you makes it an issue with either your ROM, your save file, or something bad in your computer (software or hardware).

As for the codes themselves, you can try making your own GameShark codes by watching areas of memory that change when you move pokémon's slots around, and working off of that. If the community doesn't have an answer, don't get mad... look for it yourself, too, and if you can't find it--make it.

This one is not likely at all. Hardware issues will not crash an interpretive emulator mid-execution, unless by hardware errors you mean ripping the video card out of your running computer.

A hardware error, such as in video or audio or some OS compatibility, would manifest itself as soon as those parts of the program begin execution.

Even something like a stick of bad RAM? It'd be incredibly unlikely (afaik) but still not totally impossible. Although I guess with things like ASLR it throws a stick in it...

Realistically, though--I suspect fully that he corrupted his save file using too many cheats. I only threw the hardware/software thing in there for good measure.
