After playing a fair amount of the latest betas available around, I have to vote for Pokémon rijonAdventures. Great mapping, really challenging and very professional.

I have played many hacks and I choose Pokemon Genesis.
Why? Impossible to improve, it is perfectly flawless, due to it's great maps and scripts. I cannot say anything else, due to it's perfect nature. I even think that this hack is better than ShinyGold, but I can't play neither on my DS *yet*.

I choose Pokemon Legend of Fenju
Reason: Awesome story, scripts, maps, graphics, etc. Looks really fun and the different environments in the hack make it look even better! It looks like a very original and fun hack that im looking forward to playing in the future.

Hack Name: Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers

Reason for nomination:
It is the best Rescue Team hack ever. The plot is somewhat touching, and there is good scripting and mapping. The scripts are good, and the sprites are beauuuutiful. Therefore, I nominate Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers.

Hack Name: Pokemon Genesis

Why: Although this Hack has a lack of Sprites,

this is the most advanced scripting Hack.

Also, the the maps and storyline are really interesting too.

My Nomination: Pokémon Keyra

Reason(s): Well, there are many reasons that I chose this hack to nominate. For one, The tiles are just short of completely new, and amazing. Also, I didn't see any scripts that bored me, although I didn't understand any bit of the story or anything such The story(from the thread) looks wonderful. I just can't wait till it's translated(may be sooner that you all think...Can't say though) All in all, it was a very interesting hack, all aspects were at least borderline, or better. Just a very well rounded hack, it's a joy to play.

Hack name: Ruby Destiny - Rescue Rangers.
Reason for nomination: It is an amazing hack. It has a very unique storyline and doesn't follow the beat-gyms-defeat-E4 trend. It's like a game on it's own, and I loved it.

So yeah, that's my vote.

I nominate Pokémon Crystal Shards
Author: Kike Scott
Reason: the mapping is awesome as well as the inclusion of many custom tiles. Of all of the Johto remakes Crystal Shards takes most of the cake with the addition of the Pokégear that remains true to it's Colour generation base. the scripting is fantastic with the legendary beasts.

Name of hack: Pokémon Genesis
Reason for nominations: Genesis is a great hack. It has been progressing very well for the whole time that it was made, and it is just a good game. The graphics are simple, which I like; the scripts are basically perfects, and everything is else is great. This is quite an easy hack to pick for nomination, and Thrace is a great hacker.

I found it hard to choose between Genesis and rijonAdventures, though.
