Pokemon Origin Platinum V1.4
Hack developed by Lazerith
Current Status: Working


Attention: I have begun working on a second Pokemon hack, so unless a bug that needs urgent fixing occurs, I will probably not update Origin Platinum. For more details on my new hack, or if you have any other questions feel free to private message me.

Summary:
Pokemon Origin Platinum is a self-contained hack of Pokemon Platinum developed by Lazerith and inspired by the hacks by Drayano. Origin Platinum features the ability to obtain all 493 Pokemon without having to do any sort of events, trading, or going underground.

Features:
Pokemon Origin platinum includes the following features:
  • Ability to catch all 493 Pokemon without the use of any outside source, while still being able to trade and battle with friends. Every non-legendary Pokemon can be caught before the elite four, and most added legendary Pokemon are located in post-game areas.
  • Regigigas no longer requires having the Regis pokemon to catch, but has been changed to a fateful encounter so that it may allow the player to catch the other Regis Pokemon.
  • Giratina now has Griseous orb held when you catch him. I know many people do not like the way he looks without it. I am one of those people.
  • Items such as Metal Coat, which originally were given as a held item to allow a Pokemon to evolve by trading can now be used to evolve Pokemon in the same manner as the evolution stones.
  • Pokemon that evolve by simply trading them now evolve at certain levels. Check the documents provided with the patch for more details.
  • Wurmple now evolves into Silcoon/Cascoon based on its gender.
  • Spiritomb no longer requires going underground and meeting 32 people to catch. Simply use the Odd Keystone where you normally would.
  • Once a player has caught 492 pokemon, he/she will be given the Azure Flute by one of the residents of Sandgem Town. This item is required to catch Arceus. Catching Arceus is pretty much the goal of the game.
  • Players wishing to make competitive teams using any fossil pokemon, spiritomb, or Pokemon that evolve via evolutionary items will now find that all fossils, odd keystone, and all evolution items are now sold in Veilstone Department Store.
  • Event items such as Secret Key, Membership Pass, Oak's Letter, and Azure Flute are now given to you at certain parts of the game.
  • The Super Rod is now given to you by Jasmine right after you beat the 8th gym. There are some pokemon that can only be, or are a lot more common when using the super rod. Check the Pokemon Locations document for more information.
  • The game now features a second master ball. So don't fret if you accidentally use it. However, there are still only two in the game, so still use them sparingly.
  • Many NPC's that used to say pointless, meaningless, and useless text have been changed to say references to various types of media such as Anime, Games, T.V. Shows, and Movies. See if you can find and understand them all. This is the one change that I have made that I didn't include a document. I figured that would ruin the fun.
  • More details on these changes are included in the documents.
Replayability:
With the ability to catch every Pokemon, as well as all of the included references to look for, Pokemon Origin Platinum gives players a reason to talk to everyone and examine every object.

Screenshots:
Spoiler:

Bugs:
None as of now

If you encounter any problems, please pm me or post a reply so that I can fix them as fast as possible.

Most recent changes:
Spoiler:
V1.4

Spear Pillar bug is fixed. Tested up to beating the Elite Four with no freezes. Please let me know of any post-game bugs.

V1.3

Due to being able to fix the original bug found before which prevented progress beyond Mt. Coronet after the 7th badge, I have eliminated the room in Mt. Coronet. When you go into the entrance that would normally bring you too the room, it will bring it to the room afterward instead. The transition looks a bit funny, but at least it lets you progress.

V1.2

The bugs that have appeared after I rescripted the game to fix the cycling road freeze are now fixed. I have done a test playthrough and have made it past the fifth gym with absolutely no problems.

V1.1

I have fixed the cycling road freeze. Currently, my playthrough is up to Hearthome City, so you should be able to get to that point with no problems.


Future changes:
Future changes I plan on doing include but are not limited to the following
  • More references will be included with every update. Currently, references are abundant in each town/city up until and including Eterna City. After that, they are sprinkled throughout the game. I want to make this part of the game be something that involves everyone, so please suggest references to put in. =]
I am very busy, so the following future changes are merely an idea
  • I plan on changing surf/fish pokemon to be the same levels as pokemon in the same and surrounding areas.
  • I want to make low level Pokemon in post-game areas such as Turnback cave higher leveled.
Credits:
  • Drayano for walking me through what programs I needed, and how to use them. Taught me how to use hex editing for this hack, and helped me check and make balances to what wild Pokemon can be found where. Also for helping me make decisions throughout my time making this hack. Drayano's Blaze Black, Volt White, Sacred Gold, and Storm Silver were what inspired me to do this project, and without him, Origin Platinum would not exist.
  • My girlfriend for making the Title image used in this post.
  • Various friends of mine for helping me think of references to put into the game and looking for bugs.
Tools used:
  • PPRE
  • CrystalTile2
  • TheNewPokeText
Download links:
The following links are where you can download the patch and documents. You will need to provide your own Pokemon Platinum rom and download xdelta to apply the patch.Recommendations:
I highly recommend the following hacks developed by Drayano, who inspired and helped me make Pokemon Origin Platinum.
Pokemon Blaze Black and Volt White
Pokemon Blaze Black 2 and Volt White 2

ATTENTION :

This hack is a completley waste of your time, at first I thought it's a really cool hack and started to play it with a friend.

We have encounterd a glitch which causes our game to freeze and we are unable to continue.
The glitch occures before triggering the Giratina event, therefore this game unplayable.
AND DO YOU KNOW THE WORST PART ? THE CREATOR DIDN'T EVEN MENTION THIS, AND IN OTHER FORUMUS HE DOESN'T EVEN CARE WHILE MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE TIME THEY HAVE WASTED ON A DAMAGED HACK ****KKKKKKKCCCCCCCCCCC

:-)
Thanks for the time, I am really not raging I just killed and squished a little Pikachu I saw, and then I chopped it to pieces and sold it on ebay under "THE MOST IDIOTIC ROM AND FAIL" catagory.

BYE.



P.S :

I HAVE DELETED YOUR HACK, THEN INSTALLED A CLEAN ROM, OPENED MY LAST SAVE AND IT WORKED BETTER WIHTOUT YOUR HACK.

....Sooo is this still a fun hack? Cuz I rather not go off on the guy's post above me to think that there is a game breaking bug in this hack. I really want to be able to try it, so unless ANYONE else has had the same problem with this guy when playing, and until I get a new R4 Flashcart for my 3DS, I don't want to play until I am sure.

Game update: I have fixed all freezes up to the post-game. The game can be beaten. Let me know if any post-game freezes occur. I have not experienced any.

Maybe I should just take the hack down. Some people on here don't deserve it.

I have been busy with work and school. I have just fixed the game. This was posted on here prior to knowing about the spear pillar bug.

It is obvious that you have no experience making games or rom hacks, as there are many bugs that can pop up, and changing something in a Pokemon Hack in one script can cause a completely unrelated script to freeze.

I'm sorry, but learn that if something can go wrong, it will.

See above reply. The game is fixed now so give it another try.

I still get comments telling me that this is an amazing Platinum hack. I believe it is a very fun hack, but there were a few freezes that I didn't have time to fix until now. The game is fixed, so go ahead and play it. But people have no patience, and people don't realize how easily bugs can pop up in games just from one small addition of script. The game is now working, so you shouldn't have any problems.

I wanted to only replace text from irrelevant npcs with references.

Okay two things:

1. When I try to go to Spear Pillar, the game freezes in the room before going to the place. I had to run my save off a vanilla ROM to bypass this. But when I go and leave Spear Pillar back on the hack, since I change the Save back to the hack, I end up in the stairs in the room before Spear Pillar. Don't know why it does that when I try to go TO Spear Pillar. It just goes black and the music mutes a bit but I can still hear it, and the game hangs there.

2. After beating the Elite 4, go to Fight Area, minute I see Barry, game hangs.

3. Trying to do contests, least the Acting Part, game hangs when I try to select my first move.

Thought you should know.

Good hack and a lot of fun but I agree with the post above, after beating the elite 4 when you get on the ship at Snowpoint the game crashes as soon as you the port and Barry at the other end.

A fix would be great!

Looks good. Will give this a go in the future. Would you consider making an Origin SoulSilver/HeartGold?

Is that a Legend of Zelda reference I see? XD

In any event, this hack looks like it is going to be good.
Will play it when I have time.

It's a nice hack that doesn't get too much in the way of the original gaming experience, not to mention adding many interesting and humorous references across the game.

However... I've got a problem with an event item, specifically the Secret Key. It doesn't work. Apparently, event items such as these are hack-proof, so adding them in-game doesn't really help much either way, because now the wall in the Eterna Building won't open. Kinda a disappointment, because now I'm left wondering if the other event items you added into the game would also have the same result.

Edit:
Also, the freezes are still occurring. Not sure if this is part of the game or part of your hack, but from the comments above, I'd assume it's the latter.

Edit 2:
Fixed! Using a cheat, that is. The Secret Key I obtained using a cheat code works. Looks like there's a problem with your hacked item.

I tried patching it into a clean platinum rom but it didnt patch.

PS: i am using XDelta just as you said to.

Edit: Turns out i was using a heavily outdated version of XDelta so i downloaded a new one and it worked.
