Introduction
Hi, I'm DarkRisingGirl & This is POKEMON Dark Rising. This is my 2nd attempt to complete a full hack with a new epic story, new characters, and a new region. I've always felt the Pokemon series needed a much stronger impact with story-telling & that's what this hack is all about. Within the hack(look to features for more information) you'll encounter Pokemon from all 5 generations, the newest attacks, and a brand new deep storyline involving many characters with actual emotions compelling them to move foward. I also forgot to mention 1 important thing; This hack is Part 1 of a hack series! I thank you all for playing, I hope you enjoy! ^.^

The Adventure
The Story begins in a dream. A Pokemon suddenly appears
and chooses you, a young boy/girl, to save not only it, but the world itself.
You awake asking yourself questions. Deciding to ignore the dream for now, you step out into your home town known as Fells in the Core Region. Your best friend, who also had the same dream, stops you at the front door to inform you of an emergency message from the town's Professor. When you encounter the professor, he quickly informs you of the disasters and climate changes occuring all over the Core Region. His workers in panic, he asks you to visit the delivery station and pick up a package for him from Prof.Oak. As you set out on this simple task, you encounter a mysterious girl who appears to know knowledge of the dream you've had about a creature name DARUGIS. After recieving the package, a powerful pokemon is within you and your friend, Pete, sight. Eager to test your early skills against a powerful pokemon, you quickly engage in a battle with it. The pokemon uses it's powerful winds, easily defeating your pokemon and knocking you out in the process. After awakening in your room, you see Pete and your mother patiently waiting for your recovery. You soon begin to realize this is the start of a journey into many mysteries and powerful pokemon you can't wait to challenge.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey Everyone. I'm announcing that I won't be participating in this thread any longer. I want to put all of my efforts into Dark Rising 2 and solely focus on it, rather than this hack anymore. I'll return to it once the upgraded version of this hack is finally complete. I hope you all understand that I'm only interested in making the sequel even better than the first and it's already coming out very amazing, I can't wait to share it with those who are interested in finding out the next chapter in the story. I don't feel the need to come back to this hack and I'm ready to put it behind me. I've learned a lot through making Dark Rising 1 and you'll see the huge difference and growth in Dark Rising 2. Thank you everyone for playing, I know there's bugs, tile errors, and grammar mistakes here and there. But you need to understand. I'm a casual hacker. I started the hack series to tell a story using custom characters from my imagination and Pokemon. I'm not trying to make a game as great and perfect as the ones you can pick up from retail at a nearby gaming store. That was never my intention to begin with. I love Pokemon, and I like writing stories. I put 2 and 2 together to come up with Dark Rising. I feel honored that it's being noticed and appreciated so highly, but it wasn't made to be an excellent, near flawless game. It was made just for the fun of it. See everyone at the Dark Rising 2!
