Is there any way to change your icon permantley in link cable matches, so when it comes up just after the '...wants to fight' screen, it can show a picture of one of the characters in the game, instead of the boring Ash one?

I want to fight as Hiker.

I don't know much at all about this, but my guess is that you'd have to hack the ROM of your opponent's game.

I doubt it transfers the image of Ash thru the cable (or even a pointer), it probably just defaults to the boring Ash image.

Basically, if your save holds a pointer or an index of Ash and transmits, (who knows what those silly programmers may have been thinking) it would be possible. I highly doubt it does that, however, so, short of RAM/ROM modification on the opponent's gameboy, you would always look like Ash.

Assuming such an index exists it would be hard as nuts to find, given that it would never change. A more likely thing would be to wait for Gold and Silver, which evidently lets you be a girl or a boy. That info is probably trasmitted, and may be something signifigant (everyone has a picture index, it probably just transmits that). You will probably be able to pick an image then by either Sharking in advance or when you are playing...

If you are feeling like a hardcore loser, hook up a Logic State Analyzer to the game link pins and see what the hell it trasmits when...

But you would be much better off spending that time in masturbation, honestly.

Nope. I think that's another rumor. I've played the rom I've never seen any option that lets you choose which sex the main character can be.

Though if you could use a cheat device to change what your character looks like, don't you think the opponent would notice?

I've only heard boy/girl thing as a rumor as well, but I heard it from lots of places. That was why I used qualifiers on it instead of stating it outright...

It would make since, of course.

Nah, in my games (G+S on the GB:Jap), whichever one you fight with you are still the same crappy boy who looks remarkably like Ash....

I heard it was originally like that, but it glitched up somehow. Probably link battles...?
