This looks good and all, but why the heck are there 9 starters. o.o
Anyways, the combined PC and mart doesn't really look good. And the map on the 11th screenshot is a bit bare. Good luck! (b'-')b

the darkness pokemon are twisted versions of their real forms (basically just editied versions of their shiny sprites) certain events use them by just calling an asm command, ill add this info to the thread next time i update it (alpha 1 coming in a few days!)

read my reply to chrunch for info on darkness pokemon, and the "more" is basically things like graphical improvements, new items, new sprites, and more new pokemon

The 9 starters are the 3 from each region of the first 3 generations. Also what are you're issues with the combined PC mart because I would be glad to fix them. Also, I will add some rocks or bushes on the 11th screen because I do agree that it is a bit barren. Thanks for the advice, I always welcome constructive criticism because I joined this website so I could get better at rom hacking.

Hm... I do understand this is your first ROM Hack that you've made, however I do actually recommend that you should insert a different tileset, so that way... it won't look so much like Pokémon FireRed. :P

Over all, I'd say the name of this hack sounds pretty interesting, and it's nice to see that you've got a title screen inserted. But yeah... it really does need a different tileset, that way... it won't make the ROM Hack look very generic. ;)

Oh yeah, and also... hasn't there been a ROM Hack called Pokémon Neon before?

Anyways, good luck on your ROM Hack! (b'-')

I am planning on inserting a different tileset, but I need someone to help create the tileset. (I'm pretty bad at designing them) If I can't find someone to help, I'll probably insert some tiles from other DS Pokémon games. Also, if there is a hack game called Neon already, I haven't heard of it (I looked through the threads since I wanted an original name) but, oh well, everything else is going to be original. Thanks for the advice!

Looks ok so far. Maybe its just me but the story is a bit short and so nintendo like, you could try to improve this. Oh and.. the mixed pokecenter/market looks a bit.. weird. Anyway, I'll try the upcoming beta, keep it up dude.

haha, ya..... the story description doesnt do a very good job describing the full breath of what it will be like, the upcoming alpha 1 release will just be an introduction into the story as well (only 2 towns are complete at this point) also, what can i do to make the combined pc/mart look better? im open to suggestion :D

8-Not sure
11-Baren, and shold try something else..

And the pc/mart. Try purple? Red+Blue=Purple :D
Also you can just a have a one door building (still purple) sign: I guess "pm"?
And you can still map both of them in one. Juist bc its too. dosent mean you have to do 2 doors o.o

Well I dont know, that mixed up building just looks so wrong for me. You could try to get a new building if you'd like to use center and mart in one house. Or try another colour like countryemo said, maybe purple or even yellow? Just be creative.

The hack looks OK IMO. Although a few more screenshots showing various other features, such as the IV Pokemon in play would have been good :D

Anyway, I wish you good luck with this hack and I look very forward to playing it.

I will put up screens of the gen IV Pokemon once the become catchable in the release. At the moment, the wild Pokemon catchable haven't been changed, but that will be fixed once I find out what Pokemon people would like to have in the first routes. Enjoy Alpha 1!

Well, I played the alpha and it was actually pretty good, but I've got a suggestion:
Instead of using shiny sprites for darkness pokemon, you should probably replace other sprites. It'll give you more freedom in editing darkness pokemon, you could add different moves, or stats, to make them harder. also, what would happen if you accidentally ran into a wild shiny pokemon? :/

I like your suggestion, the problem is that i have to replace a pokemon for each darkness pokemon, ill probably do that for the legendaries but i just dont want to replace too many pokemon; most likely, ill just replace some of the more worthless gen II and III pokemon and keep the good ones. This is also because im inserting around 30 gen IV pokemon and i dont want to run out of space. Also, if you accidentally run into a wild shiny (haha i wish) its explained by the fact that the world is being corrupted by darkness pokemon, i have an asm routine that i will have randomly execute on some routes to cause darkness battles (to go along with the storyline). if i can find a way to use the 25 free slots for the darkness pokemon while retaining their pokedex entries, i will

Thanks for the feedback!

Purple,to me, it's better looking and it is a color combined by red
-pokecenter's color- and blue -pokemarts color- and since the pokecenter and mart are combined like in b/w it's a good choice for purple.

I think teal looks loads better. Purple is far too bold compared to everything else--despite the impeccable logic provided by Tcoppy.

Teal - the same reason as icychill, the purple is really bold. maybe if you made the purple a bit lighter...

I like the overall appearance of the hack. It's just that in some of the screenshots, (precisely, the PokeCenter one) seems too blank.

I prefer Teal because it makes it a bit unique. I've seen purple roof tops before as well.

Teal it is then!

I'll also have trees next to it so it doesnt look so bare!

Thanks for all your opinions!
