Hack created by Azure

Features



The 386 ~ Obviously since this is a "386 hack" by some names, you will be able to capture and register each individual Pokémon through some method, whether it's via capturing, events or evolutions all Pokémon are obtainable!

Difficulty ~ Since this is a hack is intended to be challenging, the whole difficulty dynamic has been increased with a steep level curve throughout the game.
All boss battles including Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Rivals and so forth have been edited to be much more of a threat, using a strong AI coupled with tactical movesets these battles are much more of a challenge which will require you to train your Pokémon and stock up on items! The same applies to all other regular trainers throughout the game who will use specific items which will go against your favor!

Extra Tidbits ~ There have been a few extra NPC additions to the game who will help you along the way, some will gift you Eggs, others will sell you useful items to help you throughout your journey, and others will even battle you!

Evolutionary Changes ~ As usual I have change several evolutionary methods which make it much easier for to evolve specific Pokémon that were inaccessible. Some methods such as happiness have been replaced with a simple level evolution or an evolution that is triggered by using a specific elemental stone. You can find all the details on this in the Document compiled with the download!

Abilities ~ Some Pokémon have had their Abilities tweaked or completely changed, the decisions have been based on both feedback and personal opinions. So you can now have a Magneton that will have Levitate as it's ability! Again, these changes can be found with the Documents.

Attack Power & Type Changes ~ There have been a number of attacks that have been changed in terms of Power, PP and/or Accuracy, this applies mainly to those attacks with poor power or accuracy, for example GrassWhistle which originally had an Accuracy of 55 now has an Accuracy of 100.
There have also been several type changes to specific Pokémon that I feel would benefit their stats or attacks, for example Charizard is now Fire/Dragon and can learn several Dragon type moves.

Event Pokémon ~ Those one-off Pokémon including Starters, Legendaries etc have all been implemented as events scattered around Hoenn. You can battle and capture all of these but be careful, you only get once chance! You can refer to the documents for details on their locations.

Miscellaneous Changes ~ There have also been changes to Genders, Movesets, Stats and more, these changes can all be found within the various Documents.

Check out some snapshots from the game!
Spoiler:


Hints & Tips



On Route 117, Triathlete Maria is re-matchable and will use a Blissey which can provide a tremendous amount of experience when training in preparation for a Gym battle! You can also battle Wild Chansey, Wigglytuff and Clefable on Route 115 who give plenty of Experience Points.

Once you've obtained your Fishing Rod from the Fisherman in Dewford Town, try using it on the surrounding earlier Routes and Cities, it will provide you with some useful Water Pokemon early in game rather than waiting to obtain Surf! You can find the locations via the Document too.

You can obtain all Six Elemental Stones (Leaf, Water, Thunder, Fire, Sun & Moon) from the Lady at the beginning of Route 118

You can purchase a handful of helpful Berries from the guy standing in the centre of Mauville City.

Once You've defeated The Elite Four and the Champion, when you make your way to The Battle Frontier make sure you check out some of the houses. In one of the houses that is East of the Pokémon Centre you will be able to Unofficially rematch the Elite Four Members.

I'm surprised no one has replied as of yet. Tbh, I love the look of this! However Firered is more my game. However this idea seems great, Emerald generation games had to be easiest to complete by far.

I'm assuming Wally isn't as much if a Wally anymore and can now break your backside with a new awesome party? Give his party and complete revamp, so no one will predict what he uses B)

Why does Eevee evolve into Umbreon by level and not by a stone(Moon Stone)?

Because you can get a Moon Stone early in the game and it was originally challenging to evolve Eevee into Umbreon so I wanted to keep it the same however I will consider lowering the level slightly or using another method if needed.

Hope it's a challenge for you, it took me SEVERAL trys to beat Wattson and I still haven't beat Flannery, if you think you are overlevelled, just wait till you reach the later Leaders!

Ah right, unfortnuately in my case I had no type advantages to Wattson, thanks for the feedback.
I really need to edit the total stats of some Pokémon i.e Jynx as there was an error making the total stats 1000+ hence why it's so strong so in the next beta hopefully it should return to normal and it will be more of a challenge!

Well I've fixed that now, some of the Pokémons (mainly flying) total stats have increased, but not dramatically to the likes of 1000! I think I've done a pretty good job with Flannery cos it took me about 20-30 attempts before I beat her, she took me down to 0 Pokédollars :/

Another project similar to FR: Hard version? Pretty cool! Although I would've preferred you to complete the other one first, if you can pull them both off, then why not?

By the looks of the changes and for the sake of longevity I think i'm going to play this when it gets a bit further. Good luck with both your projects, pal!

It seems like youve put a lot of thought into this instead of just throwing overlevelled pokemon in gym leaders party. Will definitely have a crack at this when its complete. Good luck and good work man.
