Re: Terusama Description

I think,that can be done with a hex editor and a table file.
You were wondering how to use a table file?

Step by step:

Download Gold Finger (hex editor) from here (http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/204/) and open it
Click File->Open file and select your Pokemon Gold hack rom. You've now opened a gameboy rom in a hex editor. You can modify anything with a hex editor, since what you are seeing there is basically the whole game itself.
Copy the Pokemon gold text table from here (http://datacrystal.romhacking.net/wiki/Pokemon_Gold:TBL) and paste it in a text editor. Save the file as <name>.tbl. A text table associates each character with its hex equivalent in the game. For example, 'A' translates to 0x80 in hex.
In the hex editor, click File->Open table, and open the table file you just created
Click Edit->Search. Then, press Control + Tab. This will make the hex editor "understand" text as input according to the text table you've opened. Type "VOLTORB" or whatever it is the Pokemon's name you want to search. This will head you to where offset where the Pokemon's name string is located. Make sure it's surrounded by the other Pokemon names as you might have ended up in some guy's speech who says I love my Voltorb or Look at my Pikachu or whatever. If so, just click Edit->Search again until you find the string that corresponds to the name of the Pokemon itself. Then just overwrite "VOLTORB" with "MINUN", and finally fill up the name by writing 0x50 (press control+tab again to write in hex).

And... just try to learn something from this, as knowing how to use hex editor is extremely helpful for almost anything related to hacking.

Re: Terusama Description

Study how repointing works first.
There is a pointer table (to the descriptions of items) in the start of the rom bank where the item descriptions are located.

Re: Terusama Description

You won't learn anything if I just tell you which byte to change to what in different rom addresses.
Watch that video and study for yourself how pointers and repointing works. It's all in there.
