- "And now for something completely different."

Introducing...









Hack of:


I've had this idea in my mind for quite some time now, and here it is:

The city of Rondex covers almost the whole region (still working on a name for the region), and it's divided into smaller districts. Team Hazard,
a criminal organization has risen up and taken over the whole city.


City Map

(This image is not supposed to look good, it's just to show where everything is.)

Rondex is a huge city divided into smaller districts.
  • In the south there's the Harbor, the Market District, and The Lower City. This area isn't as modern as the rest of the city.
  • In the middle there are the Western and Eastern districts and the Central Square, a place for normal city life.
  • In the north there is the North-Western District, the Upper City, and the Outskirts. The North-Western District is separated from the rest of the city by the river Emmen. The Upper City is the heart of the modern life in Rondex with skyscrapers etc. The Outskirts are a little more sparse and it borders to the White Mountains.
  • In the South-East there are the Haze Islands, and a very rough sea surrounding them. Legends say sacred Pokémon live there.
Rondex has a very modern culture, with an advanced network of subways and sewers.



You start in an interrogation (Instead of the Prof. talking to you). There's been a robbery of Pokémon and you were there on the crime scene. They find nothing on you, so you'll be released.

The main suspect is the Team Hazard, a criminal organization trying to take over the world. As you walk the streets you see an old man being attacked by one of Team Hazard's men and rush over to help him. You're defensless without any Pokémon so he defeats you takes you away as a prisoner.


When you wake up you notice you're in a some sort of a cell. You find a way to escape and find a stolen Pokéball in a bag beside the exit door. One of the grunts find you and you fight him with the stolen Pokémon. When you manage to beat him with it you decide to keep it.


You find yourself somewhere in the Lower City. Nothing is recognizable. Eventually you find out Team Hazard is planning something huge, but what?


NEW! The Elite 4 has fled to the White Mountains and left behind most of their Pokémon. They are hiding in a little hut on the a snowy mountaintop. What they don't know is that Team Hazard has built a huge mining facility in there. After you conquer the city from the Hazards you go there to investigate you are caught by surprise...

The time of peace is long gone. Only you can return it...



There's more to the story, but I don't want to reveal everything.



New region
The Capital City, Rondex, cover almost the whole region
New story with pretty big twists at the end
New rivals
Running Shoes and other key items (Fishing Rod, Bike etc.) can be bought
New Hero/Heroine
New evil organization, Team Hazard (Like Team Rocket, but more powerful)
New music
New Elite Four
Hopefully new tiles
New starter
A network of sewers
Underground railway connecting city parts, although they are not unlucked immediately
New key items, Authorization papers, to name one
No gyms but instead Team Hazard Officers controlling each district and Key Cards instead of badges
Probably Day/Night
Exciting new events including prison breaks, power failures (not saying where) and blizzards...
Lots of sidequests including deliveries, stealing (Yes you can work for a criminal, too) and more...






Screenshots:




NEW!




This is more like it will look like in the final game, still need to change tiles and maybe the OW a little bit...

Well, it's not very frequently asked, but just to make sure.


Q: If its (mostly) in a city, where do you catch pokémon?


A: You can catch them in the sewers, national parks (there'll be quite a few), fishing, surfing, some houses have gardens with pokémon, some small grassy areas on the routes and of course in the mountains and islands. Oh, and a pretty important one: Buying using coins. Game Corners will be pretty frequent here in the city. The Pokémon won't be super-expensive like in the original games and there will be more ordinary pokémon.

Good idea
I had thought of a hack like this for FRLG/RSE myself too but I don't like hacking advance games so I quitted hacking already when I had started.

Huh. I'd thought of an idea like this once. Only it was a large city in a larger region, and you only went through the one city... Good luck with this, though. Brilliant idea.

The idea seems nice. And you could add a park or two for catching Pokémon. And have the harbor surfable, and have wild water Pokémon, etc.
Good luck on this.

-ratata
-meowth

If possible, I would love to be a Beta Tester for this game. The offer is always open. I don't have a lot of experience, but I have a lot of determination, and enthusiasm. If you're interested, please send me a PM. Thank you for your time.

@Arcues9948:

Looks good! I could definitely use that sprite for the Hazard leader! Your in!

@NoMasterBallsNeeded4Legends:

Yeah, I thought of that. But then I wanted to make your starter different from the other city Pokémon because it was a more of a rare Pokémon that was stolen from the PC.

@Arcelio:

I'd love to have you here. Anyways, we're not even close to anything right now, but when the time comes, you'll be the first in line. So, you're in!


EDIT: NEW! Awesome CSS by GavZ!

Your CSS could use a bit of work, but it does look nice.
I really like your idea. I myself never thought of something like this. You sir, are very creative.

Yeah, some new screenshots are up. Still working on new tiles, I'm very new to tile-inserting... I'll have to do it until we find someone else. There aren't very many city tiles in the game, and I want to make it look better. As far as scripting goes, I'll figure that out somehow.
