    I.- Introduction
    As you know, time plays an important role in this games. It's so important that
    some events only take place at specific hours and days. Thinking in that, I
    made this guide for telling you how you can change the hour and the day of the
    week every time you play. Well, I know that there are web pages that can help
    you with this automatically (even you can download special programs for it!),
    but if you want to do it manually, then you have come to the right place.
    Note: This code/cheat doesn't affect your saved game. So don't be afraid of
    trying this code if you want to. The worst thing that could happen is that you
    have to reset the time each time you play.
    II.- Version History
    Version 1.0 (23/VI/2001) - Welcome to Reseting Time and Day Guide in Pokemon
    Gold and Silver. I think this will be the first and final version on the guide,
    unless I make some changes in errors I might have done. You are very welcome to
    send me an e-mail if you see I made any mistake.
    Version 2.0 (6/VII/2001) - Corrected the table for the values of each of the
    name's characters, and because I have received many doubts by mail, I have
    revised the guide. If you found any errors, please send me an e-mail telling me
    the problem.
    Version 3.0 (8/VII/2001) - I have received some mails telling me that after
    following the guide, so I reviewed my guide again and again. I haven't found
    any errors in it. Even I reviewed it using a program I downloaded that
    calculates the password and the guide is OK. I think the cost common problem is
    with the amount of money. I'm sure that is the amount of money that appears on
    the stat screen. I'm sure of it because once I used this trick with that amount
    and it run perfectly. Even so, I will ask you a favor. Try with both the amount
    that appears in the stats screen and with this amount plus the amount of money
    your mother has. E-mail me if you find with which one the trick runs perfectly.
    Everything else should be OK.
    Version 4.0 (9/VII/2001) - Just added a few things. I hope this is the LAST
    version of the guide.
    Version 5.0 (19/VII/2001) - This is it. This is the final version of the guide.
    If you have questions, send them by e-mail.
    FINAL VERSION (15/IX/2001) - Well, i just wanted to say that I changed my nick.
    Also, I will suspend the service of telling your password because I don't have
    too much time to answer these things. Just follow the guide, it's perfectly
    accurate. If you don't get your password, go to the link provided at the end of
    the FAQ. Also, don't ask me for cheats like "how to duplicate items" because I
    don't know any. There are plenty of weppages that have these cheats posted.
    8/XII/2001 - Important!!! Finally, the guide has been actualized and now you
    shouldn't have any problems in obtaining your password. I want to give my
    thanks to Juan David Quintana, who indicated me all the corrections. Sorry if
    this problem occasionated troubles to all of you.
    III.- How to Reset Time and Day
    Well, let's begin.
    First, before you try to follow these steps, write in a sheet of paper your
    name in the game EXACTLY as it is written (if your name is KAMON, write KAMON,
    not Kamon or kamon or kAMON). Then you have to write your ID number and the
    amount of money that appears at your stats screen (the one that shows the
    number of pokemon you have, your ID, the time played, the medals you have won,
    etc.). After that, follow this steps:
    1.- Using the chart at the end of this guide, write the corresponding number of
    the first five letters (or symbols if it's the case) of your name and add them.
    This is result #1. Remember that capital letters are not the same as lower-case
    letter. In case that your name is less than five characters, leave it as it is.
    2.- Then, divide the total amount of your money by 256 and add the reminder to
    the quotient of the division. It doesn't matter if the quotient is 0. This is
    our result #2. NOTE: If the amount of money is greater than 65535, then you
    have to sobstract to the amount of money you have 65535 until it is less than
    this number (This can be done more than one time in order to obtain a number
    less than the one mentioned before). After your amount of money is less than
    65535, you can proceed with the division.
    3.- After that, make the same as you did with your money but this time with
    your number ID. It doesn't matter if the quotient is 0. This is our result #3.
    NOTE: If the ID is greater than 65535, then you have to sobstract to the amount
    of money you have 65535 until it is less than this number (This can be done
    more than one time in order to obtain a number less than the one mentioned
    before). After your ID is less than 65535, you can proceed with the division.
    4.- Finally, add the three results we obtained in the previous steps. If the
    resulting number is less than 5 digits, complete the number by adding zeros to
    the left. This 5-digit number is your password.
    5.- Now, having your password, on the title screen hold at the same time
    Down+Select+B. A message asking of you want to reset your clock will appear.
    Select Yes and write the password you just obtained. Now, the game will be
    reseted and you will be able to change the time and the day. The only problem
    that I found with this is that, when using this cheat, you are asked to check
    if the time and the day are OK, and put the correct ones if they aren't (at
    least, that happened to me in an emulator).
    NOTE: We use only the first 5 characters with the name, for the ID and the
    amount of money earned, use the complete number.
    If you are using a calculator, to find the reminder follow these steps:
    1.- Make the division by 256.
    2.- Multiply the quotient (WITHOUT the decimals) by 256.
    3.- Finally, substract to your amount of money/ID the result obtained above.
    IV.- Table of letters and its corresponding numbers

    O = 142                            o = 174                  ! = 231
    P = 143                            p = 175                  * = 241

    Spaces have a value of 0.
    V.- Example
    Now, let's see an example:
    Suppose you have the following data:
    Name:  Ronald
    ID:    08062
    Money: $50000
    Result #1
    Let's take the number of the first five letters.
    R = 145
    o = 174
    n = 173
    a = 160
    l = 171
    The addition of these five numbers is:
    145 + 174 + 173 + 160 + 171 = 823 <--- Result #1
    Result #2
    Money: $50000
    Divided by 256 = 195, reminder = 80
    Quotient + reminder = 195 + 80 = 275 <--- Result #2
    Result #3
    ID Number: 08062
    Divided by 256 = 31, reminder = 126
    Quotient + reminder = 31 + 126 = 157
    Result #1 + Result #2 + Result #3 = 823 + 275 + 157 = 1255
    Because 1255 is a 4-digit number, then our password is 01255
