Note: Currently on hold. Are you the new leader of this hack?
Pokémon
Rise of Magikarp

Quote:
Bulbapedia:It is believed that the ancestors of this Pokémon were much stronger than the Magikarp seen today, and this belief has led scientists to research this species.
Story

You have a dream where you see Darkrai. It quickly disappears, and you wake up.
Then you remember that today is the day you get your first Pokémon, so you hurry to the lab.
When you get there the professor is taking notes on a Magikarp. He tells you to pick one of the Pokémon
lying around the lab, as he hasn't had a chance to clean up. When you pick your Pokémon the Magikarp
suddenly goes berserk and smashes the tank. It then uses Hydro Pump and ruins the lab, then you go
unconscious. The professor wakes you up and tells you that almost all Magikarp across the region
have suddenly become a lot mare powerful. He sends you on a journey to find out what has happened
to all the Magikarp.

Features

Some D/P Pokémon and Fakémon
(Darkrai, Giratina, others that will inhabit the region, and the Fakémon will be good)
Improved Magikarp
(but will probably take longer to evolve)
Day and Night
(Using the 4 stage one, by AndryAndrew & HackLars)
New region and characters
Obviously
The Shiole region, in a parallel universe to the Nintendo games. Around 2 years after G/S/C.
It branched off around 10,000 years ago

Misc
Hack of Ruby

The idea is nice and quirky. I mean, who woulda thunk that Magikarp would ever get strong again..?

I think you should change the Magikarp sprite so it looks different. I like the story line it's very original.

I'm assuming this is a hack of Ruby but you should put the base in the first post.

Yes, of course I will. The Ruby sprite showsit being useless...

Ok good because a normal Magikarp sprite after making it better just seems weird. And I never really liked the original look of Magikarp.

Ok, I've got a screenie!



Anyone know how to get rid of the thing up top near the left? One thing I know is it's not a script accessible from that map.

EDIT:



The NEW Magikarp!

A new support banner. This global name change has killed the edit function, so a new post!

By Pikalover10


And, as you probably guessed, the Magikarp aren't getting powerful by themselves. The banner shows this with it's Darkrai.

Actually, just because I saw that quote from bulbapedia and I was really bored of my old hack.

The new sprite seems a little awkward but is still pretty nice. Good work so far and good luck.

I know it looks like I'm not doing a massive amount, but the stupid script keeps freezing... (hint hint script help thread)

Yeah, I'll try to fix it up a bit, bit at least it shows Magikarp being reasonably ... can actually do stuff

OMG it's Matteo! Thanks, and I'll try to finish it, I'm a lot more motivated for this one than my previous 2 (dead) hacks

Well... in the official games raising a magikarp is pretty useless (except platinum because you can just catch it 99 then EV it then evolve it)

Looks pretty nice. A story about Magikarp getting stronger is definitely unique. I like it. I'm supporting!

Don't let Magikarps get weaker again, either, or I'll kick you. xD

I forsee an entire region filled with ecstatically happy fishermen.

"All those lousy kids with their fancy gym badges thought I was a silly old coot for having a team of six Magikarp. We'll see who's silly now! Bring it on, brats!!"

It'd be neat if you did something like edit Splash to have 100 power, 100% accuracy, and 30% chance of paralyzing. ...That might be a bit too powerful, but you did say Magikarp would be getting a lot stronger, and Splash is Magikarp's signature move.

Are there going to be other Pokémon that end up similarly affected? (Killer Caterpie? ) If the main "opponent" in the game is superstrong Magikarp, catch an Oddish or a Pikachu and the main opponent won't be hard to beat for very long, even if its stats are hiked way up. Is an evil team doing this, or something like that?

Anyway, best of luck! I'm wondering how Darkrai ties into all this, too. (Darkrai and Magikarp. What a combination. XD)
