"It's SacredFire, in the winter?" - Jack Black


Latest Update: Team Rocket's HQ was started.


Introduction


Hello Pokécommunity, I'm Sharp. I started this hack as a way to test out my hacking skills. As I did more and more, it eventually evolved into a full fledged hack. I'm surprised it got this far because school is slowing down my progress. Still, education is always my top priority. So yeah, stay in school, don't do drugs, eat your vegetables and keep reading? :)

Hwah, it's up! And it will succeed, so hard!
way to go, sharpie.
Comments:
  • The storyiline puts TR into a very original position. That's very good.
  • I suppose you will be including JOHTO Pokemon in this hack or...?
  • The remapped PokeCenter is cool, and no longer boring.

Waiting for more. Good luck with it. And have a successful school year, too.

Hwah! ^-^ Thanks. I tried to make my storyline as original as possible, although unique stories are hard to come by. And yeah, the hack will mostly Johto and Kanto Pokemon. Hoenn Pokemon are less liked according to people. =)

Lol, I did let you and Korronensu get the first play, but you guys always ignore me, so that doesn't count. >:O I haven't even played the game. I have no idea what happens after the first town.

I was told Zel let anyone use his resources as long as he is properly credited.

Everything is good in this Hack, and nice titlescreen too.

The only thing that I would suggest is to add some OW's to make this Hack even better.

Wow, this hack is very good looking. I like the tiles, (inside houses/Poke center and outside). Also the titlecreen looks sharp. Good job so far

Thanks everyone. I've been very sick lately. I haven't been able to work on the hack at all. I missed school today and most likely will have to miss it tommorow. But no worries, it's almost here. I don't have much work to do on the hack anyways.

^-^

A few minor bugs I've noticed (so far)
- The guy who gives you 5 pokeballs will wander around when he's talking to you
- The Professor says "What are you waiting for? Choose your pokemon!" even after you and your rival leave.

Hey, tested already and I was amazed by it.

So, I'd like to share some notes in a photo where I have gathered various screenshots:
Spoiler:




as a sidenote, if you white out before reaching the first town. you get the initial script at your mom's mentioning Prof OAK. No big deal, though.

Keep it up =)

Thanks a bunch. For some reason, the guy doesnt want to stay locked. I'll rescript him. And yeah, Nintendo's script for Oak is scary. Lol... I won't be able to script anything close to that anytime soon. xD

Best. Bug. Reporter. Ever. (And lol, you avatar is a scyther. A bug. D: ) Thanks so much for this. I'm just glad none of the actual scripts malfunctioned. The variables and flags can get a little chaotic. I'll have all these fixed soon. Glad you enjoyed it.

Why don't try to make a new graphic style... Please dont use the same style of other people T_T
Well, the hack looks good ^w^.

And the team rocket idea is very used. Why dont try to make something original, is my opinion...

Good luck!

Lol, don't tell me you just noticed... =(

So, let's move on to comments about the demo [if you dont want to be spoiled, don't look]:
Spoiler:

-Your mom
Well, the main character's mom anyway. She's caring, maybe a bit too caring. Man, from the beginning 'til the first badge she already called me five times (not to mention other 7 while it was turned off 0.o). The script's really hilarious, still, it's kind of irritating - and scary - to get a phone call while walking in a forest...with ghosts.
-Your rival
Is he going to be Blue anyway? or is this temporary? anyway, by the time he tries to battle you, you can kick his butt, so it's quite balanced. The item script afterwards makes him look ridiculous. Keep that BERRY POUCH, you wimp.
-The PROF.
Even though he's not OAK, and your rival is not BLUE, he went to his house. He gave him the Pokedex first. And that not being enough, he's cursed with a repetitive script...however, God knows how, he teleports to MtCygnus before you, and claims that "he's interested in the local pokemon". What's NUROH's secret?
-Team ROCKET
Picking up on the old man and the chick, huh? well, you're going to regret this.
Really funky scripts here. Three grunts and all. And later, another division of...three grunts. Yet they're chased away by a legendary, so that makes them a divisionary failure. What might be their future plans? --Is what I wanted to say, but since I am hereby known as the T.R.K, my dad got kidnapped and now is in trouble! I haveto go save him and prove to my mom that phone calls aren't needed so often!
-The Son of TR's head
Nasty, glamorous princess. Maybe a scotch bath will make your head spin faster and understand what Team ROCKET stands for. Your Pokemon starter pack didn't bug me either. Go drown now.
-Gym Leader WREX
Huh? is that BRUNO? and not only that, he stole BROCK's pokemon and has a Hiker do that light year script? gee. Nice OW, though.
-Misc
Yay! I found 5 great balls early in the game!
Yay! lots of BERRIES!
Yay! EXP SHARE so early in the game!
Yay! VS SEEKER, too!
This makes it even better, those utilities. Good work

Don't worry. I have other tiles left to insert. Many tiles will be replaced.

Lol, I made each character have their own personality. Every person/group of people you mentioned will have a huge role later on. My characters won't fade away and never be heard from again. :D

Don't look if you haven't played the entire beta. D:

Thanks. Oh, lol, I haven't thought of that yet. Well for now, its not important but I'll think of one. Eventually.


Edit: Aww crap, the theme changed (or at least for me.) I'll have to make the banners transparent. D:
