Pokémon Yellow predefined functions list
Some values that are stated "Nonfunctional" and "Softlock" may do something when certain conditions are met.
Executing predefined functions
Predefined functions can be executed with TheZZAZZGlitch's debug Pokémon Yellow by using the "Debug" item (known as "31337" in earlier ROMs), which can be withdrawn from the player's PC at the beginning of the game or added as item 1 with the GameShark code 012C1DD3.
In at least the latest revision, one must use the debug item, select "Miscellaneous", scroll down to "Predef [7 heal]", adjust the value with right (ID +01h) and/or left (ID+10h) and press A to run the predefined function.
