Story
You are a young person living in Goldenrod City. To be a Pokémon Trainer has always been your dream, and now it's FINALLY going to come true on your tenth birthday. A new professor, Professor G. Oak, set up his lab in a far-away place called Lake Zigger. Your mom is finally letting you get your first Pokémon, a choice between three Fire-type Pokémon, so you get on a boat and head to Lake Zigger. Once you get there, however, there are a few problems... You're late, a lost passenger and a package at the Pokémon Mart delay your arrival at the lab even further, and you have no idea how to get there in the first place!

As you finally make it into the lab, you go down the stairs. Suddenly, some kid comes in to get HIS Pokémon an entire day early! Somebody else had arrived before you and taken the Charmander, and then this new kid steals away Cyndaquil! Torchic is the only Pokémon left now, so you go and take it. Suddenly, the kid challenges you to a battle, after which you proceed to leave town. Suddenly, there's a FLASH and your Torchic's been replaced by some unknown Pokémon, but, seeming as the Professor ran out of the lab right past you, you have to continue.

As you leave Lake Zigger, you encounter somebody from an organization you'd never heard of. Presumably, he was sent to Lake Zigger to steal that strange Pokémon you had, but he runs away after he gets beaten. You didn't know that the evil team will do anything to get that Pokémon, including some very un-evil-team-ish things. Not only this, there are many more things that will sidetrack you from your Rinto Pokémon League quest than just a bunch of crazy people.

The ability to have many Secret Bases, insane twists in the plot that even I didn't expect, cameo appearances by random people, saving the real world from a catastrophe (as well as the Pokémon world, obviously), some odd times when you just aren't yourself, and realizing the importance of the number 42 are a few of the crazy things that happen to you on your journey throughout the region of Rinto.

Un-LZ.GBA doesn't work correctly, so that was the best that I could do. Sometimes after I repoint it and all, it doesn't give me the Ptr changed box and I go forward and back and it's back to where it was before.

Hey hey. I could be a spriter.

Anyway, here's a review.

Title screen looks odd. You have the Pokemon logo, then these small letters.

The colors are a bit odd.

Anyway, you may want to re-do Mikachu's sprite.

Don't double or triple post, please. Use the Edit Button. You're allowed to double post when you have updates for your hack, but only when the posts are long.

i played the beta... It was pretty good, but having two gyms in the first two towns probably isn't the best. I noticed a few mistakes/bugs in the game
-On route 1 there is a few squares of land that you can't walk through
-the bug catcher that doesnt battle that is walking around in the grass beneath a house in route 2 misspells "sorry". Instead he says "soorry".
-On route 2 nearer to the bottom, there is a tree above a short fence that you can walk through half of the tree.

Thats all I noticed.
I loved Mikachu, even if it is a bit cheesey. I can't wait for the next beta.

The Gyms are too near, and that's what you need to change.

The OW Sprites aren't that good, especially with the Hero/Heroine,

which I only see they have Palette Changes.

I'm not good at OWs, and they're not simple Pallette changes. I went through EVERY VARIATION of the sprite and changed what I needed to change because back when I started this, I didn't know that all that could be edited with simple HEX.

Bugfix version Beta 1.02 will come out shortly. Look for it!

P.S. Thanks to Blazichu to movin g my thread here from the Scrapbox and adding that i had Beta 1 released.

Well, then you'd better get one OW Spriter to make some better ones.

It's been a few days since someone has posted here, and I played the beta.
I must say, I loved it! ^^
Every script was really cool, and, though Mikachu seemed like a legendary..it's experience gain was hard, but the stats seemed similar to those of the average level 5 starter, which was good! ^^
The sprite was a mere edit, with the ears, and a nice mixture on the sprite between pink and yellow would've been cool too, but, that's okay.

I laughed when I just saw a ton of Police men every where saying the same thing! xD
I look forward to playing the next beta, and hopefully you haven't given up.

Well, good luck~

Hi! I just played the beta... It's really good! I'm no expert on anything when it comes to hacking so I can't really give much feedback... But I liked it a lot, and can't wait for the next release!

I found a tile that I can't walk through that I should be able to. Maybe you wanna check it out - it's the one my character is looking at in the following screen shot.

I discovered it earlier, but I was too far in the game to fix it. Just walk around it until the next Beta.

1. No, I like my order better, but now the second gym is farther away.
2. I'm doing that now.
3. Done.
4. Thanks!
5. Sure! The thing is, don't remake it directly; that is to say, let me send you a request by PM with more specific details and you can get started.
6. The hero backsprite's not on Un-Lz! There's a tutorial on how to edit it here.

Well, guys, thanks for supporting my hack! It might have started out small, but, slowly, it got better until a lot of people saw it and played it (namely, you guys!) and helped me find many glitches in the game. Thanks to some people who sent me sprites and those people who have helped me with scripts and all those whose tutorials I use frequently. Also, thanks to the guy that started me on the road to hacking: zel!

Expect new screenshots coming later on in the week!

I've been redoing most of the starting towns, and Rio's Lab now has a second story, Zigger Town has been expanded to more than twice its original size, Vantrek City gets some new routes leading to the north and east, and of course:
THE NEW RINTO BUS SYSTEM!!!!!!!!!!!
More info on that to come.

New screenshots and videos to come, too!

Spread the word! Shining Opal's NOT DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
