a hex editor

### Re: Palette Color of Pokemon

a color is defined by values of red, green and blue.

each color is two bytes long. with 8 bits in a byte, we can only fit the three of them into 16 bits.

the nearest number divisible by 3 is 15, so we just ignore the last bit and use 5 bits for each one.

the max value for 5 bits is 32 (2^5). usually you will find rgb definitions in values out of 256 (2^8). you can just divide by 8 (2^3) to get it in 5 bits.

the color order goes from low to high, so you'd have:

0 bbbbb ggggg rrrrr

or

0bbbbbgg gggrrrrr

since the game boy reads palettes in little endian (low byte first), swap the bytes if you are editing the rom in a hex editor.

pokemon palettes only have two colors, since black and white are always used. the shiny palette comes right after the normal one. this goes on for each pokemon.

trainer palettes work the same way. they're right after the pokemon palettes in gold (0xb51d), and at 0xb0d2 in crystal.

also for crystal, pokemon palettes are at 0xa8d6, not 0xad86.

I recommend you look at jwibagi's FAQ thread for help with hex editing.

PaletteED GB. And I recommend the Color Mixer from FroggestSpirit. I thought that Sawakita has also made one.
