Well I'm sure you're probably thinking the title sounds pretty stupid.

Anyways, this is a series of three hacks. Well, technically it's four hacks, but I'm not going to release one of them since I'm only making these for my own enjoyment. I want to fully bring out the story of the Pokemon games, and erase all continuity errors in the games. Basically, I'm going to create an "updated" version of Pokemon FireRed, Emerald, and HeartGold (and Platinum but I'm going to change so little in it that I'm not going to bother releasing it). Now I know many of you guys are thinking that doing this will be way too easy (it kinda is), but I'm not doing this to show off my "skills" (which I have none), I'm doing this for my own enjoyment. Because I realized that some of the Pokemon games are way too easy, so I'm "fixing" them, and once I get an AceKard for my Nintendo DS (and also a GBA flashcart), I can play these for my own enjoyment. So really, don't complain, since I'm only posting this to see what other people think.

Anyways, here's the hacks:

Pokemon FireRed
Hack of FireRed

So the FireRed hack has updated graphics so that the Kanto that appears resembles the HG/SS Kanto MUCH better. Also the Gym Leaders have updated rosters, Rocket Admins Athena and Apollo appear, and the Pokedex has been updated to include all evolutions/pre-evolutions of the Kanto Pokemon (for instance, Kingdra is now considered a Kanto Pokemon). Also generally every trainer has been updated to allow for a more smoother level curve.

Route 1
Viridian City
Pewter City (1)
Pewter City (2)
Vermilion City
Route 5
Route 14
Rocket Admin Athena would like to battle

Changed maps so far:
Route 1
Route 2
Route 5
Route 14
Viridian City
Pewter City
Vermilion City

Beta 0.1 (at bottom of post) - All of the changes I mentioned are in this. The only thing that isn't complete yet is the mapping, but other than that you can play all the way up to the Elite Four and even the Sevii Islands. Also Gengar has a new sprite just because I felt like making one .

So Hoenn is a tropical region, right? So why not make it look more tropical? YES!!! Hoenn now resembles Platinum's tropical Battle Zone.

Littleroot Town
Route 101

Also all the Gym Leaders have updated teams, and so do Maxie and Archie. The level curve has also been slightly raised. I'll post a beta once I'm done editing all the trainers.


Obviously I'm not going to even start working on this until Spring 2010, when it gets released in the US. I'll update the Gym Leader/Elite Four teams, also Team Rocket teams and such.

HOWEVER, I have included a Crystal hack with updated Gyms + Elite Four + Team Rocket to give you a small preview of what the HG/SS hack will be!

I'll post updated team plans later.

Yes, I am planning a Platinum hack... but Platinum is a near-perfect game, the only thing I'll change is a few teams, so I might not even post it.

Remember, the Crystal hack is a "preview" of what my HeartGold hack is going to be.
