The altered starters and new Pokemon on the routes are pretty cool, and the slight level increase meant I had to pay attention. I think XP gain is slightly broken, though? At least I was seeming to gain very sporadic and inconsistent amounts and my starter was levelling approximately 5x as slowly as the Pidgey I caught.

What really killed it for me was the dialogue edits. Yes, I read the description, "Dialogue edits: Sometimes serious, sometimes hilarious.", but all of the childish swearing inserts and ridiculous dialogue lines make the whole thing reek of immaturity. I got up to the trainer school before I just gave up on the hack because the text edits are that obnoxious.

Just some food for thought for you.
It's funny that you say that, as the dialogue edits weren't made by me. It has caught my attention, but I don't think it's a really big deal. Those lines can simply be ignored; that's why people play the Japanese games before they come out in USA. I must say I loved Pitch Black, which had the same thing.

As for the EXP, the starter may be seen as a 'reward'. If you manage to keep it despite the slow EXP, it will get a lot of great moves and stats.

EDIT: I just took a second look at the text, and I have to admit some things are just ridiculous. (Juniper, Ghetsis.) There's not much I can do about it for now, but I'll do it differently in my next hack.

A terrible hack; you don't want to play it.
I'll have a nice platinum hack up soon!
