The story of Sovereign of the Skies

Since then Pokémon have been used to fight. For some people Pokémon are pets, some are even workmates. In the course of time many people have become friends with Pokémon. But some use Pokémon for evil purposes.
Your adventure starts in Hesperia, which is well known for being one of the calmest cities worldwide. It is also the only city in whole Amitec that provides a laboratory. Your father, who owns this laboratory and does particular research, gives you your first Pokémon. As a professor he enjoys worldwide appreciation. After you got your Pokémon after a little incident in the laboratory you start your journey to Riesenburg City to get some samples for your parents. You was told by them that a meteorite has crashed in Riesenburg City. Immediately you hit the road to get these said samples, which were extracted as the meteorite crashed.
After all you realize that this isn’t a meteorite because there seems to be something inside that radiates such a negative aura that even the professor is afraid. It’s “Deoxys”, a cold and really cruel Pokémon. Then you hit the road to reach your actual aim, to collect all 8 badges in Amitec. But these aims have to be hang up because you meet 2 eerie people, who talk about change of the world and the people. You realize quickly that something seems to be wrong.
After several encounters you get to know that this team is called “Team Tundra”. They suffer a sad destiny because their village “Gletcheria” is threatened with extinction and their only hope are 2 creatures of light: “Latias” and “Latios”, the 2 sovereigns of the skies. For years they have kept the world in balance, but due to their disappearance the world is closer and closer to extinction. Therefore there is only one thing to do: To find Latias and Latios and ask them to help you. But this isn’t that easy, Team Tundra always intervenes. It is said that you have to find the 2 elementary stones to awake the 2 frozen Pokémon, Latias and Latios. These Pokémon should be able to end this cruel ice age with their power. But the world could collapse as soon as these elementary stones are moved from their original place: It would be sucked into a black hole. You attempt to persuade Team Tundra to stop, but the team doesn’t care and brutal fights and urgency develop.
During your epic adventure you watch Latias and Latios fight Deoxys in Gletcheria. This leads to Team Tundra becoming more and more aggressive, resulting into them destroying other cities. They want to tell the world what they had to go through and want to do the same to the population because they were forgotten during their time of death. You have to prevent this and persuade Team Tundra to choose the better way because they don’t seem to know what they actually do and need a loving soul that helps them. But when it’s too late nobody could guess what will happen to the world, therefore act quickly!
However, during your journey you will meet other trainers, get to know new friends, help people and experience many adventures and learn more and more for your life. But this journey is going to be much more difficult than you think

What makes our hack better than yours
  • Completely new graphics: Maps, tiles, title screen, fighting screen and so on…
  • All Pokémon and legendaries catchable: Easy to complete the Pokédex
  • Day / Night-system: 6 different daytimes
  • Team matches: You also fight with partner
  • New Battle backgrounds; Backgrounds for every occasion
  • New music: Completely new
  • Ruins: The Ruins in SotS are better than original Pokemon.
  • Many different minigames: Many side quests that make the game more interesting
  • Safari-Zone: The safari-tour will be better than ever
  • More attacks useable outside: More attacks than “Cut” will be used outside
  • Season-system: spring, summer, autumn and winter will be involved
  • You ride a Pokémon: A bicycle? Forget it!
  • Travelling to space: Yes, SotS becomes extraterrestrial
  • Catastrophes: Meteorite crashes, ice ages, flooding And so on and on and on…
  • and, and, and...
The Red Features are not yet in Beta1 or Beta2 because we haven't enough time.




Beta 2:

ASM Hack:

New music:

Team Matches:

This actually looks pretty amazing and the story is quite interesting. I'm actually really curious as to how space would look like and the events up there once it's implemented. I really hope there's an English version. I'm kind of mad I don't know German. xD Best of luck!

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

I highly suggest making it English instead of German. After all, English IS the universal language.

I was thinking about doing an english translation, but i think i'm not the man to do some sort of free translation...
Also what we had to to would be a translation of the graphical stuff, because we can't just change the rombase, as you can read we already are near to beta 2 which goes up to the 7th badge and is at about 70% of the whole project. If we would do an english rombase we had to translate that for our german community members hehe.

Anyway i'm very statified you like the thing, also I want to specially thank an guy of the forums here, it's "diegoisawesome", he helped me a lot with the rockfall thingy, he gave me his code for this and I also extended it to make simple script execution possible, in my opinion: AWESOME, thank you very much for this

And for the end: Special thanks to Alen, who is a german romhacker and moderator at RHR, he translated our posting to plain english, special thanks for that to him, he is a great guy also on the german forums

This hack is very innovative! Events that start as soon as you enter the map instead having to take a step, no truck intro, the moves that you can use outside of battle. Everything about this hack, especially the water graphics, is beautiful! Totally worth the pain of Google Translating every line.
More good news! A friend gave me his old laptop! It's definitely not new, but it's modern and fully functional! Nothing can stop me now!

Yay my username is accurate now! Also holy crap I just realized Unbeatable was misspelled for the longest time! Fixed. xp

Finally a German Hack. Looks pretty nice. Will start playing this.
You, the unwashed masses: We, Team Rocket...ARE HERE! You better believe in the Shield of Injustice! Follow the Buzzard...

Check out my hack "Pokemon Rocket Strike"
How to patch a rom:
1.Download the patch. If it is in a zip file then use a free tool named WinRar to unzip the file.
2.Use Google to find the rom you need.

To be fair, Google Translate is only a guide; it takes someone good with English to properly rewrite from there in a manner that makes sense. I've tried Google Translating Russian text before and had to fill in gaps.

Die 1. Beta geht bis zur 4 Arena, also die jetzige. Die 2. Beta wird bis zum 7. Arenaleiter und ein Stückchen mehr gehen. Wir werden versuchen unnötige Pokemon zu löschen und stattdessen andere einzufügen, also abwarten.


The 1st Beta goes up to 4 Badges, so it has now. The 2nd Beta 7 to Badges and go a bit more. We will try to delete unnecessary Pokemon and instead insert other, so wait.

We were indeed considering the implementation of newer Pokémon, actually there are already evolutions that are from the 4th gen(Magnezone...)
In der Tat haben wir uns Überlegt neue Pokémon einzubauen, wir haben bereits welche der vierten Generation, vorrangig Evolutionen wie Magnezone.

In the first Beta you can obtain the first 4 badges, which would be "Ozeria City", also there are a lot of sidequests missing that are included in the 2nd Beta
In der ersten Beta kann man die ersten vier Orden bekommen, der letzte in "Ozeria City", außerdem fehlen ein paar Nebenquests.

I tried to answer this for the english guys aswell, also it would be nice if someone here who is able to speak german and english might help us with the translation, because we surely want to have this hack not only in german but also in english, otherwise we would not have posted it here
