Are You Ready to Learn About Historic Uiyto?




In Order to Envision the "Faith of Life?"


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Introduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The noble and quite popular Professor Oak has made a national announcement on television stating that he will be visting the Taejo Region. Excitement rained upon the local Taejo residents, but none other than Javyer Quau. Professor Oak has stated that he will be moving to Brighton Town, a town located on the western border of the Taejo and neighbor of the undeveloped Seijo Region. Javyer's son Zaquar Quau who is 19 at the time is also excited to hear this wonderful news. The Quau family patiently awaits for Oak's arrival...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Storyline
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pokémon Normal Version will be based on the theory of continental drift which will correlate to the legendary Pokémon Regigigas. Hence the title, "Normal Version." In order to add a little twist to the capturing of Regigigas, the legendary will be in the quite popular fan made "Sky Forme." (I will try to sprite a sky form Regigigas based on a few awesome fan made images I've seen on the internet). Also, the starter of the game will be Eevee with Professor Oak doing research on what makes Normal Pokémon so diverse. (Meaning that they are able to learn elemental attacks like ice beam, volt bolt, flamethower all in one moveset). An Eevee is given to indulge in his research. Some Pokemon from every region will be included in the game in a custom made Region Dex, with an "Extended" Dex later on in the story. The game will take place in the Taejo and Seijo Region (with historic references to a historic region called Uiyto). Region names were based on the similarities between Kanto's and Johto's names (One letter before the K, J. T and S and similar endings) since these were my favorite regions. In addition, players will get to battle my counterparts "Frozen" (user of Ice and Steel) and "Inferno" (user of Fire and Rock) as they will be deeply involved in the story. Frozen wants to wipe out all life forms on the planet with the "Ice Age" and Inferno wants to build landmass in order to create his "New World." My third counterpart is hinted, but I'll leave it a secret.

The Progression and Download Center
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please Note (Please Read) - Will be implemented into a later beta.
These are not bugs. They just have not been implemented yet
- The hero OW sprite has only WALKING AND RUNNING FRAMES
Hence, the original OW flashes quickly for when USING AN HM
- The hero has NO TRAINER BACKSPRITE
- The Pokédex Pokémon data locations have NOT BEEN DONE YET
- Water tile animations have NOT BEEN DONE YET
- Some OW/trainer sprites have not been inserted yet
- The hero and his younger brother's introduction sprites have not been inserted yet
Professor Oak may get a new intro sprite

- New item graphics have been replaced with a nice black question mark
I'm still making item graphics for most things
- Lastly, those lines that appear before the titlescreen appears are supposed to be there
They are there because it is needed to conceal the original animation
- This game denotes extensive "extensive" context clues and/or inference
- And lastly, this game is supposed to be more DIFFICULT in terms of...
GOD OF WAR and PRINCE OF PERSIA like game strategic scenarios.
(In other aspects of the game BESIDES the typical level curve)

This is an Extended Rom:
UPS Patcher

Bug Report:
(Glitches) (Easter Eggs) (Minor Bugs) (Severe Bugs) (Breakers)
These may be fixed, but not in current build version!
-
Internal The Repel/Super Repel only works for 10/20 steps instead of 100/200
I'm not why sure it does this. I never changed the special value in GBA Item Editor.
-
Pokémon I forgot to insert Weavile's cry
- The Seijo Region Map mainland puppy shape!
- (Fixed 3.xx) Location Fighter Bro on Route 54 states script while not there during the daytime
- (Fixed 3.xx) Location Policeman on Route 52 (Outside) doesn't go home during the day
- (Fixed 3.xx) Music Some music tracks will be improved when I become a better music hacker

The music for this hack is much more diverse and improved!
- Location The "happy berry go lucky girl" on Route 51 sometimes freeze the game when talked to
- Internal "Acid rain" and "black snow" time based weather
This occurs when directly switching from a map that has time based sandstorm weather to a map that has a time based rain/snow weather.
This has something to do with instant palette updating. I'll look into it.

Closing Words
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Alpha 1 was just a small self beta tested version of what I have made so far.
* Beta 1 will progress up to the third town of West Taejo, Silversky Town.
* Beta 2 will complete the continental land (excluding northeast) of Taejo.
* Beta 3 will complete the oceanic land of Taejo, Taejo League, and Post Taejo League.
Beta 4 Plus will contain Seijo and newly accessible areas of Taejo.
* Also when playing rom hacks, don't sneak peek through Advance Map
because it ruins your fun of the game and finding its secrets!
* The goal of my hack is to strive for simplicity, quality, and consistency.
It will emulate the unique style of what the Johto Region presented in Pokémon
Crystal and in inclusion that it was my most memorable nostalgic region.
