    Some codes won't work well on those Pokemon games, like Fire Red. You have to look around mostly to find other codes with the same name, in different formats. Mostly they don't work well because of the RNG system that's in the game. Did you use the RNG kill code?

    RNG= random number generator. Pokemon uses such a generator like you might use dice in a board game and some people do not care for that, to that end they have codes which force the output of said RNG to whatever they reckon they want. They might not be called [something] RNG kill but if it is something like always capture pokemon or never have something it could well be one, it might not be but... let us not going into a full discussion of cheat making.
    However changing such things can cause unexpected issues with some games, some setups and in some scenarios, I do not know the specifics for pokemon but if Dimensional reckons it could be then I have no reason to doubt him.
