This document serves as a reference guide to some useful codes for Sacred Gold and Storm Silver designed for ease of gameplay. These are not intended to make the game easier!
All codes for the American Heart Gold & Soul Silver will work for Sacred Gold & Storm Silver; codes listed in here are simply my personal recommendations. However, the Game IDs for SG/SS are different, which will affect those of you playing on flashcarts. The new IDs are as follows:
Sacred Gold – Complete: IPKE 66972395
Storm Silver – Complete: IPGE D5D82CBF
Sacred Gold – Classic: IPKE 7BAC813A
Storm Silver – Classic: IPGE C794B178
Instant Message Code
This is a personal favourite of mine. This will make all messages appear instantly rather than waiting for scrolling text. Note that when using this code with DeSmuME, you will need to disable it when booting up/restarting the game or it will stick in place.
Quick Screen Change
This is a code that will speed up the transition between buildings. Use if you really want to boost your time.
Pokémon Center Animation Cut
This is a useful code if you want to speed things up. It will cause your Trainer to hand their Pokémon to the nurse and then get them handed straight back with no intermediate animation.
Gauge Bar Animation Cut
A code useful to counter the slow moving HP bars of the fourth generation; after Pokémon have a sufficiently high amount of max HP, instead of a scrolling animation the HP bar will simply cut straight to the point it will end up at. This also affects the EXP bar. Note that some sound effects may be cut out as a result.
High Speed Processing
This is an interesting code that will speed up the rate of things in the game; this is particularly useful on flashcarts as it will make battles go that much faster, kind of giving an emulation-like experience.
HM Animation Cut
This will cut out a large amount of the animation for HMs, making it a lot quicker to move around when you have to use them.
Disable 3D Edge Marking
This code will tidy things up if you’re playing the game on NO$GBA. It’s totally useless on anything else that renders the graphics correctly (e.g. DeSmuME, flashcards…)
This code might help if you’re feeling a bit low on experience. Talk to any generic trainer while holding the R button to rematch them.
