Pokemon Dark Cry: The Legend of Giratina!
First of all I want to give special thanks to mindfreak.
When DC sufferd on the unfixable glitch he supported me to continue.
He helped me to re-insert the graphics and ASM and make them even better!
So yeah, to make it short welcome on the brand new Pokemon Dark cry: The legend of giratina!

You might all remember my old hack pokemon dark cry, the hack that has been stolen by japanese people.
But dark cry will come back and well today! this isn’t just pokemon dark cry.
This... is...

A new world to explore:
This... is.... the... trion region

**Hack of** Pokémon Fire Red (U)
**Language** English
-Don't spam!
-Don’t post crap like bugs that already has been told (report)
-Don’t ask for beta’s/alpha's!
Hello my name is mitchel1 (does it ring a bell? :P) the creator of pokemon thunder emblem. This time I’ll bring up my oldest hack ever: Pokemon Dark cry. With better scripts, maps and events then Thunder Emblem! I’ll also say i’ll not bring a update every day, because I’m bussy with school, girlfriend and live, like the most people here ^^ that was the introduction.
You woke up and you realised that you were lying in a cave, and you saw everything black and white. Nobody heard you saying. But, you saw two people, standing by a dark altar. On the altar was sort of plate lying, kinda strange. The two people by the altar were talking about a "Shadow Plate". You were trying to attack them with your pokémon, but your pokémons weren't with you, and also, you couldn't scream. Then, you saw a persoon walking with an emblem of an "R" on his shirt. You're trying to stop him, but he walks right trough you.
You saw the person doing a strange ritual, and then, there was a big, big earthquake and a giant shadow was coming to you.

You woke up and realised it was all a dream. You walked out your bed, and looked at the clock, you saw it’s already ... AM, you went to late for picking up you first pokemon. Later you realised that your dream is comming true!

Alpha 2.1.5 release trailer!
Pokemon Dark Cry: The Legend of Giratina ©: A new brilliant team rocket scene!
Pokéathlon mini-game
First bug gym gesina "outdated"
New way to choose your POKéMON
New headbutt script! Based on day/night POKéMON
BOLD: Still need to be resolved!
Line: Has been resolved!
Green: I never could resolve!

Bugs: (so far) Bag layout seems like to change color after selecting a item POKéDEX mini-map (location POKéMON capture!) has still the old "KANTO" line. Fishing OW causes pallet glitch. Capture a POKéMON in wild grass works perfect, but when you capture it and it appears in the "flash" POKéDEX the text (information) border remains black! This won't stay forever but it's a bug that we cannot fix for now, it has something to do with the battle background! When you use your town map it might occur that your location is different! When prof. Rowan call up the shinx in the intro. The POKéBALL ''floats'' left of him. There are a few minor grammar errors! Costum trainer battle background has not been added yet.

Fun knowledge from Dark Cry: TLoG: Area's could have been changed by morning, day, afternoon, evening or night! (This makes exploring the Trion Region endless!) POKéMON Dark Cry: TLoG also contains alot of side quests and mini-games. These make this hack more entertained to play! Regular tiles like a window, radio's and Tree's might contain a behavior byte script! These make more things possible!

Don't do the following! (© protected!) (If you do I'll hunt you down with a blunt knife and cut your eye out, the header code hasn't changed for nothing!) Don't use/rip the OW's that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG! Don't use/rip the tileset/pallets that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG! Don't use/rip scripts or even part of scripts that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG! Don't decompile ASM routlines and use them for your own! Don't use the tilemaps/RAW's that has been inserted in dark cry: TLoG!

Woah, this came back too? No offence but bad timeing, with the complete light platinum release, the return of Liquid Crystal, and zels back and we never know if he continues Shiny Gold, but its good to have this hack back, I always wanted to play this.

mindfreak February 6th, 2011 1:03 PM

Hooray, DC is back online ^_^....
I'm really happy we pulled it all the way trough the complete rebuild ...
(Even if we couldn't get in contact with each other for months)

That dropbox thingy really came handy =) .

I think I'll spend more time on DM now and hope to bring it back online,
But if you need help with anything you know where to find me,

Good luck on releasing the alpha, and hope no errors occur when hacking.

805587804 February 6th, 2011 6:25 PM

xx_mcawesome_xx February 6th, 2011 8:24 PM

Uhh...they made Pokemon? Without them there wouldn't even be a Pokemon game to hack :\

Anyway, nice to see this return, as always your graphics and mapping are amazing, I particularly like Regighost's graveyard, the tiles there seem to blend together really well. The scripting is also pretty awesome, and I like how you have so many side-quests (side-quests FTW!).
Good luck, and I hope to see the beta soon :)

INV February 7th, 2011 1:19 PM

It's back!!!
When I first saw this hack I was really excited because its 1 of the most amazing hacks ever But like every1 I never got to play any version of this awsome looking hack
Cant w8 for beta!

805587804 February 7th, 2011 6:33 PM

This is a very help the Hack, I hope that this early release! The earliest published tomorrow, right?

Sarcastic Prince February 7th, 2011 11:12 PM

Can't believe that this Hack's back on its tracks.
If you need grammar correcting services, you can message me anytime
you want.

Chimchar 9 February 16th, 2011 2:46 PM

Mitchel, it's great DC is back better than ever! I really hope for a beta this time friend. :)
Also, I'd like to talk to you some time as I have something to ask.

Anyway, good luck! :)

mitchel1 February 20th, 2011 8:16 AM

Thanks all for your reactions!
Sorry I didn't QUOTE everything its about 32 posts so it would be a bit full then.
Well lets continue shall we ^^

First of all I want to say the alpha wont get released this week =( There are still a few options that need to be inserted like for today: The newspaper script (WORKING!)

The idea is very simple (hard to let it work xD) From now on you can buy each day a newspaper from the Trion region to see whats going on in the world!
Every day you have a slight change on a Wi-Fi event and every day is RANDOM!

Some times new areas will get unlocked or you can receive unique presents!
What I did in this video is change the date from my PC to let you show the proof that it works!

Its only done till 10th of January and it still needs every day of every month so if you have any ideas for some cool functions just tell till now its:

-Item trade
-Pokemon trade
-Special gifts
-Special offer
-Wi-Fi events
-In-game clues

Just tell some other thinks if you know some ^^ It would really help! There is still alot days to be create!
Script would contain after all maybe more then 1400 lines I'm afraid xD
and ofcorse don't forget to rate the following update ^^

Mindfreak: ASM routline

Video has been removed...

Thats all for today, hope you like it! Take it easy!

INV February 20th, 2011 12:14 PM

Just to let you know i'm not a grammer wh0re or something like that ^^

Thanks ^^ I know about the grammar issues, I first want to finish the complete script after that the grammar ^^

First of all I want to say... Damn not alot of reactions these days. xD
Anyhow I managed to add some new updates in DC: TLoG
The progress for alpha 1.0 goes not that fast but it progress alright.
DC now contains new features like re-battles and time/date based area changes! and alot of new and updated scripts/tiles ^^

Well lets go to the updates shall we? This time it includes 3 screen shots and the new re-battle feature based on the POKéPAPER!
enjoy ^^

Kyledove/C.N.C: Updated HG/SS bugsy gym tiles
Morris: New trion badges!
Mindfreak: Cave Battleground/date routine
Manipulation: Gym leader OW (sorry was forget that ^^")


New badges added!

Gesina's gym new fresh look! ^^


New re-battle feature based on POKéPAPER!


Thats all for today, hope you like it!

Poke2011 March 3rd, 2011 9:30 AM

maybe you can have some pokemon that only appears when you buy POKéPAPER

INV March 3rd, 2011 11:18 AM

Looks nice,You CAN add events that celebrities come like this:
The Johto and Kanto Champion Lance will come in *date n hour* to show his pokemon in ??? city(you'll b able to battle him that way)
I can say that the time-based events can b done easily if u make this a DS game hack but all of these are just suggestions you can choose to do or ignore.
P.S:Will alpha 1 pass the 1st gym or it stops right after it?

Chimchar 9 March 3rd, 2011 1:47 PM

The update looks great! I hope to see more Mitchel. Good luck!
