All generation 4 eggs hatch with trash bytes - even if you nickname the hatchling. However, there's a catch - like pal park trash bytes, they are different across languages and versions. The goal of this thread is to find the string of trash bytes for all versions and languages of generation 4 games. For instance, english games use the following: D/P: \0237\4008\C019\50C8\020D\3B28 Pt: \0238\4008\C019\B318\020C\3730 HGSS: \0000\1960\0211\0002\0000\4008 French D/P: \0000\0237\4008\C019\5124\020D\3B28 Pt: \4558\0238\4008\C019\B3BC\020C\3730 HGSS: \0000\0000\1980\0211\0002\0000\4008 German D/P: \0000\0237\4008\C019\5124\020D\3B28 Pt: \4558\0238\4008\C019\B3BC\020C\3730 HGSS: \0000\0000\1940\0211\0002\0000\4008 Italian D/P: \0000\0237\4008\C019\5124\020D\3B28 Pt: \4558\0238\4008\C019\B3BC\020C\3730 HGSS: \0000\1960\0211\0002\0000\4008 Spanish D/P: \0000\0237\4008\C019\5124\020D\3B28 Pt: \4558\0238\4008\C019\B3BC\020C\3730 HGSS: \0000\0000\19A0\0211\0002\0000\4008 Japanese D/P: Last 8 bytes not consistent (FF otherwise) Pt: Last bytes not consistent (FF otherwise) HGSS: \FFFF\FFFF\FFFF\FFFF\FFFF\FFFF\FFFF\0000\???? Korean D/P: \0000\0000\C0D4*\0237\4008\C019\0E1C\020D\3730 Pt: \0000\0000\54F4\0238\4008\C019\BDE8\020C\3730 HGSS: \DE60\021D\0000\0000\2360\0211\0002\0000\4008 Note that for english only the last 6 bytes matter because all hatched pokémon have at least 4 characters in their name. For german and french, it's 7 and 8 for japanese. What I am looking for is .pkm files of french, german, italian, spanish, japanese pokémon with the shortest possible name length (e.g. Claffa in japanese and german, ekans in french, otherwise seel/abra/natu/onix/jynx) hatched on a generation 4 game (and preferably not transfered to gen 5 as it removes the last 2 bytes). If the pokémon was nicknamed when it hatched it doesn't really matter as long as the nickname is at most as long as the original name. You can also check the trash bytes yourself in Pokegen. Furthermore, gen 4 trash bytes are not considered to be important from a legality standpoint because they are unfortunately removed by the name rater. However, it seems even the name rater can leave some trash bytes of its own for short names. Hence, I am also interested in foreign pokémon that were given a 1 letter nickname by the name rater, in all versions and languages of gen 4 games as before. I thank in advance anyone willing to help.
I ran into something odd today... maybe I've just been playing Platinum too long, but does Diamond not give you the option to Trash a Wonder Card until after you've recieved the gift from the delivery guy? I put a few of the Battle Revolution item WCs on my Diamond cart, and the the only options for each card I get when I go to Check Cards is "Info" and "Exit". I know you can Trash the cards prior to recieving them in Platinum, so maybe that's why I was thrown a bit.
