Spoiler:
Welcome to the world of Zinnos. The region is very lush, trees everywhere, water as far as the eye can see. The region is governed by Celebi, a native Johto Pokemon who fled the region shortly after Team Rocket's failed-attack on it.

You are a young [boy/girl], age 17. You're not really into POKeMON training, but you do have one. A rare Pokemon which you found injured in a nearby forest. Your father is a researcher and your mother is a cook. As new Pokemon began to be discoverd, budding trainers flocked in packs to the new region of Sinnoh. This is bad in that your father's lab is failing. Moving from Azaelea Town to a small village in a remote-northern location was far from your idea of a good time but at the time it was good for business. With the catering industry slowing down for the season and the overall lack of new trainers, your family is in a bit of a financial bind. To make matters worse, your home has now been foreclosed upon.

It seems lately that wild Pokémon have been attacking people. What's worse is that tame Pokémon have been attacking their trainers! No one quite understands why, but it is happening frequently. This furthers your fear of training Pokemon but at your Dad's request you take on the job of being a trainer to enter in the Pokémon Grand Championship, which takes place in one year and has a prize money total of $500,000; more than enough to pay off the $200,000 owed to the bank.

So off you go to train and catch two more Pokémon, as the tournament requires 3 Pokémon per competitor. As you travel from town to town, facing gym leaders to test your power, you run into a strange bunch of characters. Including a quirky rival, an arrogant gym leader-pseudo rival, and strange men and women in black. Venture into the world of Pokémon Requiem and discover these hidden truths!

Spoiler:

This is a comprehensive list of errors present in Requiem Beta 2. Since this hack is dead none of these will be fixed. If you want a more enriched Requiem experience visit the Shattered Dreams thread as that is essentially an updated Requiem.
  • There are some places that you cannot ride your bike.
  • The intro sprite for the Hero/Heroine have not been changed. [This is not a priority]



Spoiler:
Q: Why did you restart the hack?
A: It crashed. I found a working Beta but decided against continuing from it as it was somewhat buggy.

Q: Why did you remove the Spritemon?
A: As nice as they are I feel like they served no purpose to the story. To be honest I feel like I used them originally to bring in a crowd. This time around I want the story to hold the hack up without the Spritemon.

Q: What about the palettes? Why did you change those?
A: For the same reason that I refuse to use a Rom Base. As nice as a new palette is, I feel like they're just another gimmick to support a hack. Again I think the features and story of the hack are more than able to hold it up.

Q: You should do [x], [y], and [z]!
A: I'm pretty open for suggestions but for now I think I'm satisfied with the way things are going.

Q: How long til the updated beta!?
A: It's out now. Download the IPS patch and patch it to a clean Fire Red rom.

Q: What tools do you use?
A: A-Map, XSE, Translhextion, NSE & UNLZ GBA.

Q: Who are the starters?
A: Treecko, Cyndaquil & Squirtle

Q: Why?
A: They are each a pure-type from their generation.

Q: Who do you recommend?
A: Cyndaquil is the easiest to play with. Squirtle is the hardest. If you're looking for ease chose Cyndaquil, if you want a challenge chose Squirtle, if you want to just play go with Treecko.
