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.
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?
