I wrote some stuff about Pokémon. Most of it has since been integrated into or otherwise superseded by The Cutting Room Floor.

Years ago I started the Pokémon disassemblies. I did most of the early work, but they have long since outgrown me, which I’m happy about.

My philosophy was to release everything publicly from the start, improving it as I went along. Most people instead planned to release their work “later” after cleaning it up to some self‐imposed standard, and inevitably never did. The Pokémon ROM hacking community of the time also had a bad habit of keeping knowledge secret, so as to be seen as an “amazing” or “impressive” hacker; ego ruled. I like to think that I played some part in changing the scene for the better.
