POKEMON TOPAZ is finally here!

After a year of ROM hacking i've finally finished!
It is a hack of POKEMON

You are TEAM ROCKET'S new recruit in the region of TOPAZ...

Your new boss (GIOVANNI) assigns you with a mission...

To capture the TOPAZ region's rare POKEMON for his research which will make TEAM ROCKET rich!

The game begins as GIOVANNI offers you a promotion if you do well and then you fly into SHAWFORD in a helicopter, your mum hurries you into your house as SHAWFORD is swarming with POKEMON POLICE...

So what's new about this hack?
A completely new storyline!
In POKEMON TOPAZ there is 200+ new POKEMON to catch!

There is all new POKEMON trainers to battle...

Completely new mapping (every town, cave and route changed!)

Some new attacks...

Some completely new maps, added to the game!

And much, much more!

Download this hack...
Click here to download the patch for POKEMON RUBY
This is an image with the link you will need to visit to get the ROM file...
Just download the small image file, then open it.


The DARK and ELECTRIC type GYM interiors.

CONCRETE CITY and WIDE HILL map screenies.

Screenshots showing SNAKE WAY, the menu system and the POKEMON menu system...

Sound interesting?
What are you waiting for?
Download the IPS patch...

Weird that considering how many people enjoy being on the dark side this hack hasnt been noticed around here. Oh well, at least it's good to know of another finished hack.

I guess I'll take a look at it when I have some time, although I'm not of the TR-followers, and spriting and mapping are not too impressive. However, probably that will be replaced with tons of fun and new stuff to do. I'll give a better opinion once I try it.

Alright, congratulations for finishing it!

It seems like a very creative hack. Atleast you finished it and put alot of effort, and that's the main thing here. Anyways, it looks good!

it's a good hack, but it takes a while to download.

(By the way, what happened to the rule of "no distribution of ROMs"? It's a .GBA file.)

Why not allow people to download a patch instead?

WHat would be great is if you didn't make new pokemons and left it how it was.

The rocket story sounds perefect, just the Pokemon really ticks it off.

Still its great, COngrats man.

So is that a patch when i download it is 16 mb, so wheres the patch for it

Awesome! I thought I had dibs on Topaz, but oh well. Best laid plans and all that.
Ben: Oh, you guys. Stop calling them. You can call me all you want.

Laura: Okay...

Eric: Oh, oh, okay.

Ben: Just don't make it between the times of midnight and 6:00 AM because I am sleeping.

[Andrew laughs]

Ben: And if my speakers go off...

Andrew: [Laughs] No you're not.

Ben: Yeah, well, sometimes I am. Occasionally.

Eric: And people of the world, don't call him on Skype, Sundays between like 3:00 and 8:00 PM because that's when he edits the show.

Andrew: When he does, yeah.

Ben: If you call think a dementor is bad? You think Lord Voldemort is bad? [In deep voice] You haven't felt the wrath of Ben Schoen.

Linking to ROMs is against the forum's rules. Follow this to make a patch of your hack and upload it instead of a ROM.

This game looks brilliant, i love the idea as playing as the evil side for once. The fakemon look ok, but every time i try to play it comes up with a blank white screen.

This looks pretty solid. When I get some free time, I'll have to give it a play.

im playing pokemon topaz and it's great! the only negative part is that the fakemon are annoying. I really think that it would've been better with the regular pokemon. This is most likely because when i meet them in the wild, i have no idea what type they are.
