Pokemon: Professor Oak's Back-Up



Hack of: FireRed 1.0 (U)
Rom Base: MrDollSteak's Attack and Decap Base

Story



"Pokémon: Oak's Back-up"

Since the dawn of Pokémon games, our journies have begun with the wise words of a Pokémon Professor. And, in each Pokémon laboratory, there are a team of scientists, hard at work, assisting these Professors in their research; the Aides!

In 'Pokémon: Oak's Back-Up', play as Aidan, a promising young scientist with a passion for Pokémon. with no Pokémon of his own, Aidan follows the path of Pokémon research, rather than Training.
One day, while hard at work in Professor Oak's Lab in Pallet Town, the Prof. himself approaches Aidan with a request. Another of Oak's Aides, Adrienne, has been away on a job, and it is taking her longer than expected to return. No need to worry; Adrienne's relaxed attitude is constantly getting her in trouble at the Lab. Nevertheless, Oak would like for Aidan to travel to the Sevii Islands to fetch Adrienne and return home, to get back to work.

Choose from one of three special Starter Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, and embark on a brand new adventure through the Sevii Islands!

For those of you who are interested in a timeline, Pokémon: Oak's Back-Up takes place two (2) years after GSC/HGSS, thus five (5) years after RBY/FRLG, when the Sevii Islands were first introduced.

Notes



Points of note:

- This hack differs from other Pokémon games you’ve played. You do not collect badges, you do not strive to fill the Pokédex, you do not challenge the Pokémon League. You are playing the specific role of Aidan, a young scientist working under Professor Oak. Play the game to find out more!

- Aidan and Adrienne use Brendan and May’s sprites. Yes, we know. Ideally, they’d have their own designs, but time was a factor (not to mention spriting abilities). Some day, we will update with new sprites, but for now, try to look past the character sprites.
(The owner of the Two Island Game Corner notes that Adrienne wears a white coat – she will, at some point!)

- When you capture a Pokémon, and already have a party of 6, there is no message for sending that Pokémon to the box. This is more noticeable when you nickname that Pokémon – a blank text-box appears. Not game breaking, just a little jarring. We imagine it’s something to do with JPAN’s base, and are looking into it.
- On the topic of capturing Pokémon, make sure to explore a route thoroughly. It might be a while before you get to revisit.

I've been a part of the pokecommunity for quite a while now, and I've always noticed your presence in the forums. I'm pretty excited to see you in the hacking scene now! I like your mix of the FR/LG tiles with the nice touch ups and additions like the better grass, flowers, and the tropical trees. Those few things make such a difference. The story seems really unique, and not having the badge system opens up even more possibilities!

Keep up the good work!

I have completed this game. Nice story but very small, the game ended when it started to become interesting. :/

This is a really fun idea. I like these kinds of hacks that take an alternative approach.

I agree with Blackout, the new tiles really do make the difference. I'm glad that this game keeps the FRLG style.
