    As for 4th Gen Pokemon Roms (DPP/HG/SS),

    You can use PPRE for most of the things.
    Also I think you will need PPTXT or something like this for text editing.
    Also, you will need to change Starters and so.

    Sorry, that's all I know since I tried once and reject it.

    Right so im upto Violet City in editing, i've changed alot of the text and wild pokemon you find upto that point, for example route 29, just outside New Bark Town, ive replaced all the wild pokemon with every starter pokemon from all gens (minus 5th gen) but what im trying to do now is to change the starter pokemon you get from Prof. Elm in New Bark Town, (I was thinking Mew, Celebi and Jirachi)

    PPRE doesnt do this, so if anybody could help me with the name of a program that can, it would be appreicated, also a the name of a program that changes the gym leaders pokemon and levels would be good as well
