My first hack. A small hack of HGSS that mostly contains Quality of life and Aesthetic changes. I made this with the idea of replacing the Original HGSS games as it contains a few things that SHOULD have been in the originals.

Feel free to use these as a base for your rom hacks but give credit pls

UPDATED 4/6/2016


NOTE: A separate set of patches that change the level curves throughout the game to be more streamlined, are now included with the Final build.

The changes:
Spoiler:
-All Kanto/Johto/Sinnoh pokemon use their new gen 6 mini sprites on the party menu.
-All attacks now have their power,accuracy, etc updated to gen 6 standards.
-All kanto/jonto pokemon have their movesets updated as close to Black2/White2 as possible.
-Lyra has been replaced with Kris and is referred to as "Kris" by all NPCs. (sprites courtesy of Gregarlink10 @ deviantart)
-Both Game Corners at Celadon and Goldenrod have been restored to their original designs. (Voltorb Flip replaces the actual slots however. Game coins can be bought again ) In-game text refers to Voltorb Flip now instead of slots including NPC blurb.
-Coin Case is now located in Goldenrod Underground like in the Originals.
-Your mom now gives you the GB Player at the start of the game.
-Kurt now gives you your finished apricorn pokeballs immediatley after asking him to make them. Apricorns still have a 24hr respawn.
-Sneasel can now be caught at ice path BF3 & BF4 at Night. (Pokedex says area unknown but cant seem to fix that)
-All pokemon that evolve via trade with held items can now also evolve by just "using" the item on them. Trading with held item still works as a second option.
-Pokemon that require trading to evolve, can now also evolve by using a new item called "Covenant Orb". (See Game Corner Prizes)
-Gligar and Skarmory are available in both games.
-Electabuzz can now be caught at Route 39
-Move re-learner will now happily re-learn a pokemon's move free of charge.
-Razor Fang and Razor Claw can now be obtained at a house in Cinnawood City
-Up-Grade can now be obtained from a scientist a the safari zone's Pokemon center
-Magmarizer can be found at Ice Path
-Electirizer can be found at Route 44
-Dubious Disc can be found at Route 26
-Protector can now be found at Victory Road
-Flareon now learns Flare Blitz instead of Fire Blast at lv 45
-Some Kanto and Johto pokemon have had their palette's edited slightly to be more similar with the official artwork.
-Pokemon that had their base stats changed with the release of Gen 6 have been updated accordingly.
-Rattata can no longer be caught at Routes 30 and 31
-Weedle and Ledyba (in HG), and Caterpie and Spinarak (in SS) can be caught at route 30 and 31 but are much rarer. In addition, Zubat and Poliwag can also be caught on these routes at night. Gastly can be found on route 31 at night but is very rare.
-Houndour can now be caught at Route 48 at night. In addition, Hoppip can no longer be caught at route 48 at night but still can be caught there during the morning and day.


Added with 4/4/2016 UPDATE
-A new more stabilized patcher that will check the rom's checksum before patching.
-new sidequest with ruins of alph imported from sacredgold/stormsilver. - credit to Drayano
-28 brand new crafted sprites for all the Unown, done by your truly.

-Game Corners have their prizes re-adjusted accordingly:

-TMs and Evolution Stones,
-Leaf Stone, Water Stone, Fire Stone, ThunderStone, - 1,000 coins.

-Covenant Orb: Evolves Kadabra,Machoke,Graveler and Haunter - 3,000 coins NOTE:Trading said pokemon will still trigger evolution as a second option.

Screenshots:
Spoiler:









Known Bugs:
Spoiler:
-When naming your player, should you choose Kris, Lyra's overworld sprite will be displayed while naming your character.
-Pokedex map entries are not updated for the new wild pokemon locations.


Fixed bugs as of v1.7:
-Route 45: game no longer freezes when you speak to the camera guy. But due to the nature of the bug i had to remove the camera guy from this route completely. -Fixed completely
-Fixed a bug where Kris would have a corrupted sprite during the Hall of Fame reel.
-Kris is now displayed in the credits instead of Lyra.
-Fixed a text error in Soul Silver's Game Corner. No longer will the vendor sell both Ekans and Sandshrew.
-Route 31: Game no longer freezes when you deliver the mail to the man beside the Blk Apricorn tree on route 31.
-Kris' face mugshot is displayed near the end of the intro movie instead of Lyra's. (Thanks to Hiro TDK)
-Fixed a critical script error just before Mahogany town
-Fixed a bug whith moves Facade and Strength that caused the user's backsprite to shift out of place.

Wow this looks great! Will play it after finishing Black2..
Btw is there any documentation on the wild list? That would be awesome

Ps: Playing Kris again is a nice touch! I was sad that Lyra replaced Kris in HGSS XD

This looks very interesting! Did you also make all Pokemon that evolve by trade (like Graveler, Haunter, Porygon, Scyther, and others) evolve differently?

patch works fine for me, are you using the (E) versions?

It works fine with "Pokemon - HeartGold Version (v10) (E)" and "Pokemon - SoulSilver Version (v10) (E)"

Maybe you are using the wrong version?

No problem man, thought it would work with (U) as well but I guess not.
I have updated the notes accordingly.

ok i have found out how you can edit the evolutions.first,you need a (USA) ROM of HG OR SS.second extract the file "4" from the (u) version using NitroExplorer2b.exe.third, use 4º Gen Pokemon Evolution Editor.exe to open and edit the evos in the file "4"(usa version).
fourth,reinsert the file "4" into your (eur) rom.
I have just tried this with my geodude which i edited to evolve at lv.16,and it worked.
i'll upload the tools+readme right now so that you can try it
tell me if it works for you too.
and by the way how did you edit moves in this game?thats one thing i want to do for hg/ss but cannot figure out how,do tell

I appreciate the info but no longer needed. I have Just compiled a new patch v1.1 that has evolution changes for tradeable pokemon using new items. The patch will be uploaded shortly.

And about the attack editing, it was easy, I used the universal rom randomizer for making nuzlockes and set "updated moves" then i took the appropriate narc containing the new edited moves and reinserted them into my rom.

what annoyed me most in HG SS was that the hidden power checker wasn't around till post game in Celadon City. Is it at all possible to have him any sooner? It'd be nice if he was in New Bark Town since it would be great to have that guy around at the start of the game. Also roaming legendaries have got to go, Raikou and Entei along with the Lati twins need to have events similar to suicune's so you can have an easier way to get appropriate natures and IVs or them.

the hidden power checker I can do, will probably make "another of him" placed in goldenrod city.

As for the roaming legendaries, I dont want to deviate too far from the original, at the same time I dont know how to edit that said event. I will try, but no promises.

you have to "use" the metal coat like an evolution stone on scyther to evolve it now.

Your old save file should be fully compatible with this hack, if you are using DeSuME just export the .sav file from your clean game and import it when u load the hack.

Yes both versions have exclusives like the original. Only difference being Gligar and Skarmory are available in both games.

The idea was to make these "fine-tuned replacements" for the originals and also as a base for future rom hacks should people wish to use it.

Also im making a few color changes to some pokemon to make them look more closely to their official artwork so check back soon.
Here is an example:
