Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Reign of Legends.

Reason why: It has a good storyline, and all the legendary's in places that are sometimes easy, sometimes hard to get to. Nice maps and scripts. It was challenging and it's plot was unique, as well as surprising and marvellous.

Man of Steel
He harbors no shame
Got cut a raw deal
But he holds no blame
Gone and forgot to feel
Numb for pretentious pain
As he spins the wheel
There's no loss nor no gain...

Nerves o
f Steel
He must remain
Even if it kills
To remember my name
A view to a thrill
Like Campari and Champagne
I'm on the rocks
Please tell me, What Is My Name?

I nominate Waterfall!
Reason: The mapping by Pachel seems to have really improved, and the overworld is simply amazing. It also seems like he does not want to stop until the hack is complete!

Hack name:
Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers

Reason for Nomination:
Great storyline, great spriting. Very good use of flags and scripting.

The storyline was emotional at some points, making it very good. The fact that it goes by chapters also helps it a lot. Just looking at it, I'm willing to bet that it took a lot of dedication to make this hack.
The maps were incredible and well-thought out. The mechanics of the game were also well-thought out so it makes it possible to beat the game.
And the region was magnificent.

I nominate Pokemon Liquid Crystal. It looks like LaZ did a good job on the scripts and the mapping is almost the same as crystal.

Hack name: Pokémon Genesis

Reason for nomination: Pokémon Genesis resembles RijonAdventures which I loved for professional presentation, flawless mapping and great scripts. This all can be applied to Genesis without any exception. It has truly amazed me.

Reason: It has a very good storyline. The tiles and sprites are great also the DP pokemon. The fact that every legendary is available makes it an excellent hack.
