Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you like it.

Hrm, in reference to the difficulty issue, that's eliberate. I don't particularly want the starters to be too strong. I can see that they aren't that viable at the early stages but they do become more useful eventually. Ekans in particular gets quite a decent moveset, Grimer is generally quite strong offensively. I tend to use Koffing and have found it fine so far, I use it primarily as a sponge.

Thanks for pointing out the problems with the moves, I'll fix all of those ASAP. The Elemental Fangs surprised me, as I'd written the code for them myself, I must have used a wrong byte somewhere.

Also thanks for telling me about the double Ledyba. I'll change that too.

Growlithe learns pretty powerful moves from 30-49, Arcanine does learn Extremespeed at 49, but outside of that it won't learn much else. From memory, highlights from Growlithe's learnset are Flare Blitz, Close Combat, Wild Charge, Crunch etc.
Mmm, so it's a pity that my Arcanine won't be able to learn such cool moves... Can you make it so that it learns them since a certain level, for example 40-45? Because it's almost imposible to keep Growlithe until high levels because it's weak, that made me evolve it soon, but now as an Arcanine it won't improve, and that's a pity.

I'm basing it off Black 2 and White 2's moveset which has it like that. Actually from memory all the Pokemon games have had Arcanine with no moves at all after level 1 until Firered when he got Extremespeed. I plan on keeping it this way, and have done similar things to most stone evolution pokemon. You could always catch a new Growlithe and slap an exp. share on it? Because after the third gyms you can buy evolution stones.

It means that the game is loaded. Which means it is working. Are you able to play it yet?

At the moment you can buy them either in the base underneath Lavender Town or in the Rocket Base in Celadon City. Once the next beta comes out you'll also be able to buy them in Saffron City!

Thanks alot for that actually!

I've always been meaning to change the text, I just never really got around to it

I'll give you credit for the font there. It's very good.

EDIT: I've had to change the size slightly, as it cut the sides of it off,
so the new titlescreen looks like this:

Ha! The video is hilarious.

Some of the comments you made are so true. The logic at the end is a tad flawed.
But eh, Pokemons not the most logical thing anyway!

I hope you continue playing and am glad and honored that you enjoyed and made a video about it.

Yeah some of the move descriptions are a little wonky. When I changed the move descriptions of the TMs they seemed to cross over into the surrounding moves which was a tad annoying. Hopefully this will be all done and dusted by the next beta. I've got bigger priorities at the moment though

Thanks. That's good to hear. I'd personally recommend starting at the next beta, which will be the halfway mark and will be pretty polished in and of itself. Most pokemon will be in the level range of 40-50 which is pretty much where most vanilla games finish.

Whatever is aviable to download. Latest release contains a .ips file so it's pretty obvious.

I'm unsure if this was mentioned in another post, but Teleport isn't working properly. I used it and it sent me to the linked single-battle room(Map Bank 0, Map 0). I love what I've played of your hack thus far. Thanks for putting this together, I'm looking forward to future updates and the final version. Best of luck to ya! ^.^

This looks really promising. Keep up the good work. Also, do you need some userbars? If so, maybe I can make one for you. I am not that good but I'll try.

That would be great! I mean only if you feel like it or want to, I'm sure it'll be great.

Yeah this was a bug I'd found myself recently. It has something to do with JPAN's engine I believe, I think the original teleport script is somewhat wiped or works differently or something. I'll look into it more. Hopefully it should be simple and fixed for the next BETA.

It's an .ips file, all my releases will be .ips just for future reference. I find that LIPS is a very handy and accurate patcher.

Please change the tiles. The tiles are very common and used in a lot of hacks.

In all fairness it is the owners choice of what tiles he wants to use, I have no complaints with the tiles he is using.

Download the .rar, the patch should be contained within the file.

If it´s Android: Use an app like ES File Explorer or any Unzip app which you can find in Google Play.
