[pokeyellow] Help Changing Starter

I want to change the starter from Pikachu to something else. I'm very new to Decomp hacking, but I found a line in pokemon_constants.asm:

; player starter
STARTER_PIKACHU EQU EEVEE

This changes the pikachu in Oak's speech, and the one he encounters in the grass, but when you're brought into his lab, neither the rival nor the pokeball load. Is this not the right thing to change? Or is there more that I missed?

You must have made other changes that resulted in the issues you are seeing. Simply changing STARTER_PIKACHU from PIKACHU to EEVEE works fine.

Re: [pokeyellow] Help Changing Starter

As far as I know, my only changes have been to sprites, and a couple changes to palettes. I'll try from a fresh decomp and see though.
Strangely, if something else broke it, it works fine if PIKACHU is still set as the starter. Just when I change it to anything else.
