So I was looking for a way to play the japanese Gen 1 games. I found this Pokemon Green in English hack, which was almost exactly what I was looking for. It inserts all the old sprites and makes a lot of other changes. However, I also didn't want to essentially play USA Blue all over again. The Japanese Blue version has different exclusives and trades, etc. So I figured I would edit this Green Rom to have the pokemon locations of Japanese Blue.
I found this RBY Wild Pokémon Editor tool, which I used to alter the encounter tables. But it doesn't allow me to change the fishing tables, in-game trades, and Game Corner rewards
. Does anyone know of a tool that lets me edit these?
According to Bulbapedia, that's all the changes there are. If anyone knows of any other changes, I would like to know them. I'm so close to finishing my little project.

Ok, so I've been using the ROM Map to alter the In-Game Trades manually. I finished all of them and it works pretty great. Only one Problem
Trading for Haunter does not trigger it to Evolve into Gengar. The Pokemon Blue JP Romhack does it, so how do I? Strangely, the trade for Graveller evolves it into a Golem just fine.

Turns out, the evolution script looks at the first two letter of the pokemon's name (not the nickname) to check if it should evolve, instead of the index number.
; The names of the trade evolutions in Blue (JP)
; are checked. In that version, TradeMons that
; can evolve are Graveler and Haunter.
; In localization, this check was translated
; before monster names were finalized.
; Then, Haunter's name was "Spectre".
; Since its name no longer starts with
; "SP", it is prevented from evolving.
; This may have been why Red/Green's trades
; were used instead, where none can evolve.
; This was fixed in Yellow.
So now I have to go modify the script and I have no idea where that is. It checks for "S", then increments and checks for "P". ugh!
Any help in this matter would be great.

Now I just need to find the Game Corner data.

Was able to do Game Corner with PrizeEdit GB: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/821/
I just edited a regular USA blue with PrizeEdit, then created and applied an ips patch for all the work I had done up until this point. Worked like a charm!
Now I just need to find how to change:
1. Fishing Data Encounters for Good Rod and Super Rod
2. the after trade dialogue text back to "The ______ you traded me went and evolved!"

I have reason to believe that the Fishing availabilty went completely unchanged in Pocket Monsters Blue (JP) from Green (although I don't have proof). So I'm leaving that alone.
So the only thing left is: change the after trade dialogue text back to "The ______ you traded me went and evolved!"
