VBA problems with these Gameshark codes

#1CutterDeBlancPosted 4/28/2010 11:42:03 PM
So, I'm trying to make whatever random pokemon I encounter be a Bulbasaur, so I can try to catch it. Whenever I put in a gameshark code the best thing that happens is it doesn't work at all. Often the game will lag horribly it'll say my VBA is running at like 23%, and if I try to encounter a wild pokemon it will be a Houndoom, not a Bulbasaur.

I've been trying different codes from all over for like two days, tried them both with and without the master (always must be on) codes, and nothing seems to work... what gives? I feel I must be doing something wrong, but I have absolutely no idea what. It's not like putting Gameshark codes in is tough.

VBA doesn't need a master code so don't worry about that.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/gbadvance/file/921905/38469
use the codes from here and it should work. it does for me.

BULBASAUR [Patch Slot 1 & 2]
25214170 0AB256A2
95CCF842 A51B89F8
2E7B7A58 D0781742
D52902CA 343CF38A

If that doesn't work then there's a problem other than the codes.

Nope, it still slows the game down, and I encounter a houndoom.

I tried the code on that FAQ to catch a nincada instead, since I don't have the nationaldex yet, i thought maybe that was the problem, it slowed the game down again, instead I encountered a sunflora. I caught it. Doesn't show up in my pokedex and was listed as #377(I think) The pokedex doesn't list it as caught. It says i only have two pokemon (torchic and poochyena).

So yeah bottom line the code didn't work. I will try another copy of this I guess, maybe?

You do need the master code on, which is:
B749822B CE9BFAC1
A86CDBA5 19BA49B3

Then the Bulbasaur code:
4427AB7E FA5ACF46

That's the only way I get the code to work on the VBA. Good luck

Code worked, now I have to catch one though! Lvl 5 bulbasaur was hardcore, even the greatball didn't work, and he was in the red. Gonna need more pokeballs.
