Short reminder that Pokémon rolled its own character encoding format with 0x50 as string terminator, incompatible changes between generations and discontinous character blocks.

I found a bug. Trying to analyze that bug lead me to find another bug. Trying to fix that bug lead me to a kernel bug (that is being fixed in 5.3 already). Working around that kernel bug showed me that the original bug is intermittent depending on god knows what and that the second bug was masking a fourth one in a library I am using. This is going to be one of those nights, isn't it?
