  1. If something doesn’t return continuity, it means that the circuit is broken and that you could fix it using wires. If all of the appropriate terminals have continuity, then you may have a faulty chip (considering that your GBA is 100% OK). If there is continuity in the back, I would assume that the “inbound” connections of the flash memory are working. So, you have to check the “outbound” connections, this means you have to examine the continuity between the flash chip and the GBA pins (the cartridge pins that connect directly to the GBA). For that matter you have to locate the flash
  2. You should check the threads in the sector that holds the LE26FV10N1TS chip, that is the flash memory. Put very roughly (but it is not exactly as I say), the threads in the back are inbound communications and the threads in the front are the lines from the cartridge to the GBA system (Do you notice how the threads in the front go from the cartridge to GBA connection pins?). After you check the "inbound" links, check the "outbound" links. AFAIK, Pokémon games employ these chips to save data: Macronix: MX29L010TC-15A1, 1m (128kb) flash memory chip. Sanyo: LE26FV10N1TS, 1m (128kb) fla
  3. By the way, something "funny" about your cartridge is that its chips do not have ID data. Most chips have a printed number and/or the brand (this is how you start checking what they do). Your cart should look like these (pictures attached):
  4. Yeah, each pin of the chip must travel to another point in the board. So, take the multimeter and check if there is continuity between "origin" and "destination" using the exposed parts of the board (i.e. the little holes). Also, just FYI, here's another video that explains how to check if the battery works without removing it (or whether you should remove it soon or not).
  5. Sometimes the boards corrode with time, in other occasions falls break the boards and create microscopic gaps; these things disrupt communications within the board. If this was the problem, all you have to do is check for continuity. A blueprint is useful for this matter, but you could trace the threads of the chip without one. Just check the board from the back, not the front. This is a common problem in circuit boards; regarding micro-soldering, the common practice is not transplanting the chip, but bridging the faulty terminals to their destinations using wires (at least for the f
  6. I understand, check the picture I insterted/attached in this message. Your Pokémon should have similar stuff to the one in the screens. You will send this Pokémon to the past, teach them fissure and send it "back to the future" (LOL). Remember, open 2 PKHEXES and do as I described before. By the way, your pokémon must have moves that exist in RED/BLUE/YELLOW when sending them to the past. Keep that in mind.
  7. Open 2 PKHEXES: One with Crystal settings, the other with Red settings. Give confusion to Blastoise in gen 2 (make sure it's an egg pokémon), drag the Blastoise from PKHEX Crystal (gen 2) to PKHEX Red (gen 1), give it fissure and trade it back to gen 2, done.
  8. Maybe you could create a table with the right (expected) values and then have PKHEX look for the right value using the approximate result from C#. Something like a dictionary for heights and weights.
  9. I guess you meant "I only own videogames"? When I said "the products we have" I did not mean merch for children, I meant everything. The Pokémon game is a product too; and the Pokémon inside the Pokémon games are a product of business planning. Now that you mention, some adults do buy stuff originally meant for kids, such as kigurumi, but that's something else. Also, the vanilla Pokémon game is intended for kids, it still is, because you always get to play the role of 10-year-old kid, or so. You still play the game because you probably have an attachment to it, which is normal, but probab
  10. @Poke J 's comments are alright. Just to further things a little bit: Wish Salamence Wish Salamence is intended to build a “soft” wall against another Pokémon and stall them. Basically, you take advantage of the Pokémon’s typing so it absorbs/negates damage after using toxic. If you do not have protect, then you do not get your chance to recover from the attacks and reduce the odds to stall your rivals. In other words, protect allows wish to take effect on the second round, while toxic deals the damage. Flamethrower is there to help you with steel types, which are immune to toxi
  11. But what do you need to know? If it works? If its possible to have these moves at once?
  12. Amazing, really looking forward to this!
  13. Well, the products we have, are the result of a business process involving more elements than Game Freak’s staff size. It is sort of idealistic believing that the future of Pokémon games depend on Game Freak’s staff size, understood (from what I read) as them being uncapable of committing to anything else but making remakes because they are “small”. Staff size is irrelevant, it could be larger if they needed it. If preparing and launching 1,000 characters at once in a Pokémon game was profitable, they would do it. But that is not profitable, for various reasons, one reason is that they un
  14. Download the file and decompress it, then tell your AV to allow both the compressed folder and all the uncompressed files.
