Pokémon:
Hard Crystal Version!

(Hack of Pokémon Crystal)
Beta 0.1 Now Relesaed!

The (long) Introduction!

Well, firstly let me introduce you to Pokémon Hard Crystal Version and yes, it does live up to its name. This isn't and was not supposed to be a huge project that normally would take weeks or months to complete, this is just a simple adjustment to intensify the difficulty for players to enjoy and have a challenge if they do so decide to play the game. I myself know that I enjoy challenges and this game hopefully will bring just that! Plus there aren't many (if any) Crystal hacks that bring this!

This was intentinoally just for my eyes only but what harm would it do giving you all a try eh? besides, I know alot of you enjoy a challenge once in a while!
As you can obviously tell this game focuses on the difficulty aspect of the game by increasing all levels of the main NPCS and trainers, there are NO map edits like in other hacks.

So, after writing pretty much the same thing three times because of my internet disconnecting thats pretty much it from here but if you do decide to try it out, please do leave feedback & I really hope you have a blast playing! Thanks :]

The Features!
  • Your rivals team has completely changed
  • Gym Leaders much more difficult & new Pokémon for some!
  • Elite Four Members considered a threat (Edited Levels & Teams 60+)
  • All Trainers in Johto & Kanto have been changed in some way!
  • Wild Pokémon edited to fit the level of game
  • Whole game difficulty intensified!
  • All 251 Pokémon are catchable!

The Media!

You can now catch all 6 starters of Kanto & Johto!



The Progress!

Editing (Trainers) - 31%
Editing (Wild Pokémon) - 15%

The Release!
Beta 0.1 ~ Ends at Violet City; All Trainers & Pokémon edited untill the 1st Gym.

Okay, I just finished Beta 0.1. It was pretty great. As my first Hard Edition hack, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Keep up the good work!

Wow, A crystal Hack! Cool.

Good luck mate.

Great hack
I just played it and got stuck at the rival right before the Elite 4. I couldn't beat his jolteon. Thats a good thing. I like a challenging pokemon game. I look forward to the final.

If you are new to playing hacks, I will teach you how. First, download a program called Lunar IPS. Then, download the file attached to the first post. Then, download the Pokemon Crystal ROM from CoolRoms.

When you are finished with all of that, open Lunar IPS. Click on "Apply IPS Patch". Select the IPS file that you downloaded from the thread. Next, find the Pokemon Crystal ROM you downloaded. A messsage will appear saying that it successfully patched the ROM. Now, you are ready to play the hack!

This works for all hacks that you want to play.

If you already know how to do all that, then just disregard everything I just said.

Looks good. I normally don't play Complete Pokédex/Hard Versions, but looks like I'll make an exception for this, being as it is a GBC Hack. (love being able to run them at insane speeds)
Since you're going to make Red's whole team Level 100, does that mean you'll evolve his Pikachu?

That may be a posibility! Red might have a whole revamped team, who knows, you'll have to wait!
