Why are people saying R.I.P.?
There's no new of his death for sure, and he went missing for 2 years before. He, like most people over 18, has life to deal with, and a pokemon hack he doesn't get payed for won't exactly get as much attention as his social life and/or actual job.
I know you said you have lost interest in Pokemon, but you'll find it soon. I however cannot lose my interest in Pokemon(still inactive here though because I have other websites I'm a member of).
But I do understand the distraction of other games. Just remember, you're never too old for Pokemon! I've already imagined myself on my death bed asking for a copy of Pokemon Blue version and a gameboy to play it on and wanting to beat it one more time before I die >8D
Also, pick up a copy of Black or White, it'll spark the interest more(N is my favorite Pokemon Antagonist).
Zel I'm glad to see you're back. I was sad when you left with no sign almost two years ago. I was going to finish Shiny Gold to the Gold remake capacity(but just for myself, not release it on here, didn't want to steal your thunder or get flamers).
But I'm really glad to see you're back, can't wait for the next Beta, I'm sure you've been busy with real life. I'm glad Heartgold and Soulsilver didn't keep ya down.
Btw, how far is Beta 6 going to go? Are you finished with at least the western part of Kanto?
still, he vanished off of here just about when Heartgold and Soulsilver were announced. Heck, one of the catchphrases for Shiny Gold was "Why would we bother about making a remake, if a kid's already doing it for us?" And he won't bother, I mean he does have a job, and a life, maybe he's trying to aim higher than just being well-known on the internet. If so, I say good for him, and I hope one day he works for Nintendo.
sad, I liked all the bonus stuff he threw into the mix of Shiny Gold, like Carlos. Well I say any dedicated hackers who loved shiny gold, finish shiny gold for yourselves, just like I intend to do, cuz I've been playing SoulSilver for a week(got it release day and i've gotten all 16 badges) and I have to say that no matter what, Shiny Gold was still like a totally different game and is nothing like HeartGold and SoulSilver because it had a lot of awesome stuff. I'd say the only thing Shiny Gold couldn't quite beat was the PokeGear but Zel substituted with those awesome phonebooths, and I think you should've been able to obtain more cards to have more numbers.
guys, he's not coming back, why does no one get this? He hasn't been on for almost a year! If you want to finish Shiny Gold for you and yur friends, download advance map and learn how to script. Zel is gone, if he ever comes back, I expect it after the HeartGold and SoulSilver hype decreases.
chris_d, you can't compare SG to HG and SS because they are unique in their own way. SG is better for keeping the originality of G/S plus his custom trainers. HG and SS is diferent such as having all 493 pokemon and the safari zone now accesible plus the pokewalker. You all need to leave zel alone cuz he's been gone since april; face it, he's gone and he's never coming back, if he comes back, he comes back; but until that day you need to leave him alone. He probably left this website for the same reason I once left a website: to get away from all the idiots. You guys are just proving he made the right choice to leave. Now leave him alone until he comes back.
everyone, give Zel time. He has a real life and is not dedicated to work here. To anybody who said they want the construction of Shinygold to move to someone else or want to complete it themselves(especially that guy on page 7), Zel does not want that. He will do it himself. If you continue it yourself he will not want to touch it anymore because you would have tainted it. He said on his last appearence that he is almost done with the whole thing and instead of working on Beta 6, he might be working on a final version. I personally think that you people should just accept he might never come back until he actually reappears. You people are pressuring him and stuff and he will not like that people want to take HIS game and do it themselves.
Oh yah and everyone shut up about comparing Heart Gold and Soul Silver to Shiny Gold because they are incomparable. Mainly because they are for two different systems. Second because Zel has stated in FAQs about Shiny Gold that he isn't like nintendo and does not need two games to catch all the pokemon in the region. Now stop comparing the officials with the hacks because they will never be able to be compared.
Jeeze stop worrying about Zel, this is perfectly normal for Zel because he has vanished like this before. The only reason people are making a big deal is because of some supposed disease I haven't heard of. Zel wil tell us if something is wrong, so until then, just stop spamming.
Wow! Been forever since I was on here! I think I was last online in March. Well I had to hunt down the answer to the comment and/or question I stated and/or asked. Well anyways, I know there is tons of hype but it seems more frequent lately, when is Beta 6 coming out(sorry if I'm bugging you)?
Umm, Zel, I was playing in the Trick House and a I talked to a player and they said,
"Gold wrote the secret code..."
"...'Trick Master is Cool'..."
"THE DOOR OPENED"
and then i walked upwards and the trainer noticed me on the way out and I teleported to the Trick Master's room. It was during the strength challenge.
I don't mind the Trees being like that, I was just telling you in case you didn't know. I have to admit if you play for a few hours you can beat the game really fast. Yesterday and last night together I got from Ecruteak City, after having beat the first 4 gyms on friday, all the way to clair at about 4:00 or 5:00 this morning(I forget because we had the push forward of our clocks).
I also loved how you put Cyrus's Battle Music for Carlos. When I got to Ice Path I was screaming that he was a dick for using Chansey; I was actually able to keep it from KOing any pokemon long enough to run out of PP, then I used my Lv 22 Skiploom to Leech Seed it so I healed full everytime it struggled(had to cuz dang thing won't take a burn from my Typhlosion). The only thing about the music is that in some points it sounds really glitched up. Also, I don't like how the Rocket Members have the RSE Aqua/Magma boss music. I think you should give them the Aqua/Magma grunt music and the Executives get the Aqua/Magma boss music.
One question, how can I find the Legendary Beasts?
