Enabling either of the above codes using the US version of the game activates a small debug mode. While it adds some (unremovable) debugging text to the screen, the real meat is the free move ability. Push L and the ball will stop. You can then use the D-Pad to move the ball anywhere on the screen. Press R to return the game to normal.
Attempting to go back to normal while the ball is outside the table will freeze the game.
The numbers on the debug display denote (from left to right) the ball's X position, the ball's Y position, and the table's Y position.
Placeholder Pokémon Icons
Bonus stage select
This screen is associated with game mode 0B, sub-mode 01 (for comparison, the regular selection screen is mode 0A-01).
Force Bonus Stage Select (L) 74000130 01FF 8200B0C2 010B 0 seconds remaining (R) 74000130 02FF 82000296 0001
Go to the Field Selection screen and tap L. Bonus Select menu will be activated (without its images loaded); end any stage to return to it with graphics corrected.
(If you are easily scared, do not attempt activating the code in the Options screen...)
There are at least three graphical differences between international and Japanese versions of the games. The fields MART and CATCH were originally SHOP and GET START; while the MART on the building is changed from SHOP.
The Japanese version of the game has e-Reader functionality, with four e-Cards released. The e-Cards don't really add anything new to the game, merely tweaking difficulty and increasing the odds of certain events.
e-Reader communication is game mode number 7. It plays the otherwise unused song number 3. Codebreaker USA:
Force e-Reader mode (L) 74000130 01FF 8200B0C2 0107
Activate code on main menu (title screen with New Game, Pokedex, ... visible). Advance corrupted text and graphics until a click noise is heard and a large box appears in the bottom-middle. Press B.
Virtual Console Changes
The Virtual Console version of the game is incompatible with the e-Reader, so the tweaks mentioned above are impossible.
