Pokemon emerald difficult edition 0.70 (released on 01/01/2014)
Pokemon used as base:
Pokemon Emerald (U)
This project started as a personal project because i wanted a change and something new to play but sill wanted to stick to Pokemon. I wasn't interested in changing the graphics or the events themselves, but i had a big interest in trainers, there Pokemon, the gyms and there difficult (i found them to easy) and i wanted to finally catch all Pokemon and fully complete a Pokemon game. I started this project and over time not only edited the top 4 and all the trainers, but i also started to change where Pokemon would appear and so on. I edited there attacks as well as the Pokemon evolution (now trading is not necessary). I have done enough in my opinion to justify myself a first beta release of the game.
(For more changes read enhancement and bug fix sections!)
Azurill lvl 16 to Marill
Marill lvl 46 to Azumarill
Elite 4 has been made a bit easier.
MAXIE The team magma leader actually should not have a mixed team, this was a mistake in earlier versions, now this has been fixed, he has mainly fire types now.
Made Gyms mono-type again and a few minor fixes.
Fixed a LOT!! Of Pokemon with struggle,
changed a few move-sets,
gave Smeargle his move Sketch back!
(there is more i cant remember sry!)
Smeargle now learns sketch every 10 lvl again... sorry i removed the attack in all previous versions because i didn't know what it did....
Edited a trainer which crashed the game for some reason (fixed)
removed HM from shop as it can be picked up
a few Pokemon trainers' Pokemon didn't know any move and only used struggle AND a few Pokemon also learnt same attack twice.. both fixed!
Fixed all 2 vs 2 Pokemon battles as before 'version 15' opponent teams didn't work out e.g. one trainer had 2 Pokemon and the other had 4 when it was 2 vs 2 battle now both will have 4 etc.
Fixed route 117 as trainers were not edited before
Starter Pokemon triangle changed to fire, water and plant, and depending on YOUR STARTER AND YOUR GENDER, the rivals team will be different each time.
Wally also changed to not suddenly change team for the final battle on victory road, but the Pokemon will change progressively.
The gym leaders are a bit weaker and do not have a Pokemon to counter their weaknesses anymore to keep it fair.
Gym trainer placement reworked you can not walk past Pokemon trainers in gym anymore!!
Gym Pokemon type changes
Team aqua and magma Pokemon changes
(there is more i cant remember....)
implemented trainer nineteenct as a thank you for completing the game and for the feedback received!
Added a trainer with my username near the battle front... HE has my favorite 6 Pokemon with the same move-sets i used to have with them.
I changed the starters again because in the last version pichu was difficult to start with. (rival Pokemon changed to reflect these)
I also changed Wallace Pokemon move-sets because it was almost impossible to beat him.. I made him easier..
I changed the location of ALL Pokemon because of people's feedback (THX FOR IT!)
Added 4 VERY STRONG trainers near the entrance of battle frontier... they are good to train =) can find them in the area just look
A lot of trainer changes, Pokemon attack changes as well as a few type and Pokemon stats changes
Added a path from sootopolis Pokemon Center to the GYM! (now surf is not needed there!)
Also Made sure HM Strength can be picked up instead of it being sold at the pokeMarkt.
Here the attack changes in version 0.20:
also some trainer changes (made some stronger, some weaker)
evolution changes introduced in 1.6:
Eevee evolves t Umbreon using Moonstone
Eevee evolves to Espeon lvl 16
Azurill lvl 16 to Marill
MArill lvl 46 to Azumarill
