Hacking Pokémon Yellow from within Pokémon Yellow

(Not my work)

It's a hack of Pokémon Yellow written and executed from within Pokémon Yellow via buffer overflow and creative stacking of items.  Absolutely freaking brilliant!  Plus, there's a fully-detailed explaination of how it was done and how you can do it as well.

Alas I have seen a few of the breakdowns of the various pokemon red/blue exploits in recent months and seen some of the analysis done there as well or I would have been completely spellbound by that. As it stands I put up with the pokemon sounds for the time it took to watch that which is pretty shocking.

None the less I love things like this, there was a pretty good talk about some of the underlying ideas behind hacks like that in 27c3 ( ) and this is a wonderful execution of such a thing where the talk was largely theoretical.
