Just impressive what young people like you already can do. Great job, I'll follow this.
Thanks, that's awesome.
Also, I'm sorry about your hack, but, since you want to be on my team, just send me the proof of work.

I've been looking through Shiny Gold and changing some things to make my own private completed version of the game, and I've seen that Zel really made an effort to keep the storyline the same, but add his own personal touch at the same time. The Pokenav-Pokegear idea was great, and if you can do that, it's limitless to what else you can add in. Without extras, it'd just be Pokemon Crystal all over again! I loved Crystal, but I really want to see a change of pace with this hack. Good luck!

EDIT: Also, you forgot to add Phanpy to Route 46, which was a big part of the Crystal experience! Just saying (;
Awesome answer below.
Also, Phanpy was in Route 46 in the morning, and since there isn't time-of-day wild Pokémon, I used the daytime Pokémon. Sorry.

I am glad it gives the same feeling as Pokemon Crystal, this is my only favorite GSC remake! Besides HG/SS, but they are the offical remakes though.
I agree (almost) completely. For some hacks, having some extras that weren't in the original storyline works fine, but CrystalDust is having an almost-perfect, almost-unchanged Crystal experience on the GBA. I, like you, don't like hacks that go overboard with the changes, though. I saw a hack that had a petting zoo in Cherrygrove or something and I was like "o_o wut". Hehe, good times.

Anyways, many people don't seem to get that CrystalDust is trying to be an almost-exact remake of Crystal, and that the new stuff is coming after everything in Crystal's been said and done.
