View Full Version : Ruby hack: Pokemon Heatwave

May 8th, 2005, 12:34 PM
Hi. I'm starting a new hack called Pokemon Heatwave. It is set at the exact same time as R/S, but Groudon has already been running around for a few years. You journey from Littleroot to find Kyogre and banish Groudon back beneath the sea. The Gym Leaders have all been called away to try and fight Groudon themselves, leaving behind replacements. So far I have two Gym Leaders, if anyone wants to be one, just leave some details. It should include a name for the gym leader, Pokemon he/she has (But they must still be based around the original type. For example, if you take over from Wattson, you still have to have electric Pokemon, but you can choose what levels and which Pokemon) Current Gyms taken are Rustboro and Dewford. The maps will be edited for towns so that they don't have water in. I am also going to try and get rid of the sea, so that you can walk straight across it. Fire Pokemon will be common, water Pokemon will be rare. The weather institute will also play a bigger part in this, though how, you will have to wait and see. Here's a few screens to keep you all pleased for now.

I like it a lot, Treecko Fan 12! I hope you keep up with this!

May 8th, 2005, 1:10 PM
I actually really love your idea! Make everything extremely parched!

Ooh! I have an idea, which you should use! Instead of grass have lots of sand, since the grass has just been burnt to a crisp! It'd look tres cool.

Thanks for all your support. I'm not as good at hacking as other people. I can only do text editing and maps. But I don't really need to do any spriting so that solves one thing. I might need a bit of help in some parts doing some event editing, but I'm confident I can do most of it myself.

This is sounds abit like to MewthreeInc's Pokemon Riku....

May 8th, 2005, 1:40 PM
Well I am not really a fan of hacks that take place in Hoenn but I will sure keep an eye on this :)

Well I don't really look at many hacks, there's only a couple I actually take interest in, and I haven't seen that hack before. So if it is similar, it is purely by coincidence.

Great hack Treecko fan id like to be the Muaville city gym leader
Pokemon: Plusle lv. 20, minun lv. 22, and Raichu lv. 24
Battle quote: Wattson might be gone but im just as strong as he is

edit: The TM Is zap cannon

May 8th, 2005, 5:26 PM
Not a bad idea... Btw, it will take you a LONG time to edit all of the Sea out, so good luck...
Oh, and I'll volunteer a character of mine for Gym Duty.

(Note: This is not me)
Description-Medium height, long black hair, violet eyes, wears light-blue skirt and T-shirt.
Personality-Almost always very nice and acts playful, but can be deadly serious if she needs to, though she hates doing that.
Lv.38 Alakazam
Lv.40 Metang
Lv.42 Espeon

May 8th, 2005, 5:31 PM
actually it won't take long to edit the sea out, if you change one tile all of them change... so good luck with his... and it looks great..

May 8th, 2005, 6:06 PM
Well, the tilesets of the sea area contain multiple sea panels, but editing all of them would be far easier than editing each area by itself....

May 8th, 2005, 6:11 PM
yeah edit all of the sea tiles, which isn't as long as you said, it would cut down time by days XD

May 8th, 2005, 6:33 PM
But if you do, don't forget to change the attribute thing or you wll still get a sea battle feild in battle under you and the enemy.

May 8th, 2005, 6:36 PM
yeah, and how will you dive underwater to get to the team rocket submarine place? XD that's going to be the hard part unless you make a cave that you can just enter... so it won't be that hard o.O

May 8th, 2005, 7:06 PM
He could leave the water in tileset 0 and edit it out of the others maybe... Or leave just one or two in the sea's tilesets the way they are, he'd have to do at least some actual map editing either way...

May 8th, 2005, 7:13 PM
yeah, make it say do you want to dig here? XD

May 8th, 2005, 7:18 PM
*Puts idea in "Might be useful for future hacks" folder*
I might use that if I ever make a desert region. But you'd have to switch the TM/HMs for Dig and Dive around, so it might be hard to do...

May 8th, 2005, 7:31 PM
yes, somewhat it would, but actually it wouldn't if there is nowhere to dive... then make dive dig and dig something else change the attack power accuracy, then change the description then change the battle effect to something else and you're done...

Can I be a Gym Leader in Fortree?

Gym Leader Jade

Well then, if you don't mind, I would replace Wallace, in the Water gym in Sootopolis.

Gym Leader Mirage (female if possible, if you want, give you a sprite of her later)


Their level is to your criteria

Oh, and if you want different text...

Starting text:

"Oh! A new challenger! Did you ever notice the beauties the lasting water has? Its splashes, waves... Do you really want to challenge me?

Then prepare for the biggest splash in your life!

Battle End Text

Oh, no! Water pokmon's strengh is diminished thanks to the heatwave...

Final text

"Well, you won fair and square, (Player)! Take your badge, then.
Oh, and here's a TM too! (TM descriptions)

After-math text (when you won, and speak to him again)

Good Luck in winning the league!

For everyone who applied as a leader, you'r accepted, except for Jason. I did say they still had to be thwe same type as the Gym Leader who usually is there. Fortree uses bird Pokemon. They are grass Pokemon. And having it so that you need to dig instead of using Dive is a brilliant idea. I never thought of it. If all the water was gone though, then what would people drink. I will leave some routes with water, but I think I will use the dig idea. And a note to future posters for Gym Positions, Petalburg has been filled. That leaves Fortree (unless Jason's gonna change his Pokemon) and Lavaridge.

May 9th, 2005, 10:10 AM
Thanks for letting me be a gym leader teeckofan and it really is a good idea to have dig instead of dive

May 9th, 2005, 1:09 PM
Glad to hear it ^^
Btw, I meant just switching the two moves' places so dive is where Dig was and vice-versa.

May 9th, 2005, 3:00 PM
Nice idea, you could go very far with it... Just remember that groudon also created more land [or as magma beleived...] Maybe u could incorperate that into your game..

May 9th, 2005, 5:09 PM
You know, this is kinda the idea of what he said about land replacing the sea and all as well as the discussion over replacing dig with dive.

May 9th, 2005, 6:54 PM
yeah, obviously everyone likes my idea... but be sure i'm probably going to use it too, considering it was mine lol...

May 9th, 2005, 7:03 PM
Well, don't be suprised if I also use it somewhere down teh line.
Anyways, on topic, any more progree Treeko?

May 9th, 2005, 7:05 PM
lol, hopefully alot of people will use it, i would like to see some more screens o.O but take your time...

Treecko Fan 12
May 10th, 2005, 10:58 AM
I'll post some more screens later today. I have got a ton of homework to do. Stupid teachers. I wish Groudon would stamp on them all. I'm currently working on most of the text first, then doing more mapping. Advance Map likes being annoying whenever I try to use it. I'm trying to change the Pokemon League place on Evergrande so it looks like the Sky Pillar on the outside. You'll face Groudon at the end instead of Steven, but you can't catch him there. Once you load after beating Groudon, he's gonna be hidden somewhere in Hoenn, so you'll have to find him.

Edit: I've added some screens. These show who's on Roxanne's certified trainer list. I need to change it though as Roxanne isn't the Gym Leader anymore. Notice who's on the list. (BTW, Alex is the name I chose to play the game as, it has no relevance to anything.)

May 10th, 2005, 11:24 AM
*looks at this hack, then at Ruby X*
Both seem closely related. Interesting.
Goodluck on completing this, though.

May 10th, 2005, 11:56 AM
yeah, they do... lol this is like a hack of a hack of ruby X XD

May 12th, 2005, 8:47 AM
i like it it is better then mine is goin as zero can tell u lol

May 12th, 2005, 10:38 AM

Philbro, I took the post of the Fortree gym before you. And it will be a Grass type gym cauze we.lack.it.

May 13th, 2005, 9:15 AM
Well read carefully. He said not allowed. Replacment for gym leaders mean same type of pokemon. you snooze you lose. Read The Story Line.

Treecko Fan 12
May 13th, 2005, 10:24 AM
Philbro's right. You could always be a rubbish little trainer in the gym as a warm up for him though.

May 13th, 2005, 6:15 PM
I'll be the the Lavaridge gym leader.

Gym leader Jackson
pokemon Houndoom Lv 24, Slugma Lv24, Arcanine Lv24, and Magmar Lv29

Befor battling: So you have come to challenge me? Flannery may not be here right now but that doesn't change anything! Come, feel the strength of Fire Pokemon!
Battle lost: Ouch Burned!

Ending: I have been beat? Well here is your reward the Heat Badge it makes pokemon up to level 50 obey even outsiders . Oh and take this to it conains Tm 35 Flamethrower.

Treecko Fan 12
May 14th, 2005, 11:12 AM
Yup. Now I think that's all the leader positions filled.

May 16th, 2005, 8:02 AM
yes. If ya want to be a flying underling in my gym use a mix of hoenn johto and kanto. not all one type. Bar 1 trainer pokemon.

Treecko Fan 12
May 16th, 2005, 10:11 AM
Now the gym leaders are done, I'm accepting applications for Elite 4 members, but not for the champion.

May 16th, 2005, 10:40 AM
Oh well who wants to be an elite four with a super gym. bet they can;t have trainers following them.

Treecko Fan 12
May 16th, 2005, 12:59 PM
I originally wasn't going to have any new Pokemon, but I wanted something other than Groudon that symbolized the heatwave, so I requested a fusion of some other Pokemon and it turned out like this. If you think it's a good idea to have this in the game, say so. And I also need a name for it.

May 16th, 2005, 1:08 PM
Cool pokemon. I love it. Im not good at names so i let somone else say one.

* Jade *
May 16th, 2005, 1:24 PM
Name? Blaraider

To be in game? No - reason: I hate hybrids

May 16th, 2005, 1:28 PM
Thats your opinion and i agree to have your opinion but i think ti should go in. do a poll about it.

May 16th, 2005, 4:49 PM
This game is very unique :)

The screens are lookin snazzzy :) Cool storyline... groudon's been roaming... sweetness :D

May 16th, 2005, 10:55 PM
Hey! I could team up with you! I got some good ideas, Lets take away nearly all sea in the sea routs, but make shallow except for one 4 tile block(stamp) to dive in dive areas! and also... We could put a dam in pettleburg!

Treecko Fan 12
May 17th, 2005, 9:23 AM
Brilliant idea, I could always use more help. And the thing with the dam in Petalburg sounds good.

May 17th, 2005, 9:26 AM
a dam in petalburg is cool. maybe you can enter after the pokemon league. Yeah cool idea

May 17th, 2005, 9:52 PM
:) got YIM? cause if ya do, Send me the current PATCH
Edit: Wait... Never mind... Pm me it with an attatchment

Treecko Fan 12
May 18th, 2005, 8:52 AM
There isn't a patch yet. People asking for the game miles before it is completed are what destroys most hack threads. It's plainly obvious it's not at the beta stage yet.

May 18th, 2005, 10:48 AM
Well when it is send us them and notify us untill then we will sit back and relax.

Treecko Fan 12
May 18th, 2005, 1:04 PM

For those who posted for Gym Leaders and Elite 4, I'll put that all in now then. Once I do that, I'll edit a couple more maps and then post up a beta at some point in the next week. I'll follow up with some screens either tonight or tomorrow.

May 20th, 2005, 10:49 AM
So you mean that my gym will be in the beta. yay.

Treecko Fan 12
May 21st, 2005, 4:14 AM
Well the beta will go up to the second or third gym. I'd still need to edit a ton of maps before I could makea beta with moer gyms in.
