Pokemon RBY - species name editing
« on: July 12, 2019, 07:20:34 pm »
I'm interested in attempting to re-localize (not merely romanize) the names of the original 151 Pokemon in Red and Blue.
What tools could I use to do that?

If you will use the English version rom.

You can open the game in a hexeditor and load this .tbl file.

Then just make a text search like "CHARIZARD" and find the beginning of the Pokemon names.
