I vote for Legend of Fenju.
It's kinda old hack that and it's finally released that's why it deserves to be HOTM :)
In my opinion it has best tileset and storyline is also awesome.

July 10th, 2009, 11:38 AM
I also vote for legend of fenju, as the pokemon iris is in another language so I can't base anything on it, and lof looks like a lot of effort and uniqueness has been put in it

July 10th, 2009, 12:41 PM
My vote is now pending to decide for this month. These three sounds good. I have to watch their gameplay.

July 10th, 2009, 12:47 PM
I voted for Azure Horizons. Sure, Legend of Fenju is good, but it lacks one really important thing in a hack: Professionalism. Azure Horizons looks like it could be developed by Gamefreak and Nintendo.

July 10th, 2009, 12:55 PM
I vote Legend of Fenju. It's addcting for some reason. I guess that's what happens when someone makes a great game for example Shiny gold x

July 10th, 2009, 1:20 PM
I vote for LoF, too! This time it's the month for Neti :P How many times was he nominated for it? xD
However it's one of the greatest hacks i've ever seen! With those great maps of Neti and so on...;)


July 10th, 2009, 4:50 PM
LoF gmv :D great hack overall ^^

July 10th, 2009, 4:55 PM
Why does everyone vote for a hack with edited tiles and a beta release? I prefer hacks with Fire Red/Emerald/Platinum tiles that hasn't had a beta release. I also like rom hacks with the original story like having a rival, evil team, 8 gyms, elite four story.

I vote for Azure Horizons it is underrated.

July 10th, 2009, 9:24 PM
As much as I love Azure Horizons (I'd be more inclined to play its beta than Iris') I have to go with Iris. Azure Horizons is still too early in its development for me to vote for it. So much in Iris has been changed, it deserves to win this week imo.

...and I end up accidentally voting for Azure Horizons instead *headdesk*

July 10th, 2009, 10:25 PM
I vote for LoF as well since it looks great and is the only one of these hacks which will be done sometime for sure.

What do you mean legend of fenju is released ?
I can't find downloadlink in the thread.

July 11th, 2009, 4:56 AM
As much as I don't want to follow the crowd, I voted for Legend of Fenju, as I did the last time it was up here (when was that? March, maybe?). It's been in progress for the longest time (at least, I think so, but prove me wrong), and I think that it deserves to win something, if only for the dedication.

Nice one, Malin. ;)

July 11th, 2009, 5:03 AM
I vote lof! It's my favorite hack! I think that the storyline, the scripts, the mapping, the everything is hotm deserving if not hoty.

July 11th, 2009, 5:19 AM
I've voted for Pokémon Iris: It's got very good tiles and, Koder has done very good events. I remember that, when this hack was posted, without Koder (the creator was called "Lucky"), this hack weren't anything about what it's today.

But, Koder should have made this hack in English, or at least a translation. I can speak Spanish, but I don't like hacks in spanish. But anyway, it seems very good.


Azure Horizons: It wasn't as good as Pokémon Iris - It's got Firered and Emerald tiles, and there is only new events/maps. It should be more "customized".

Pokémon Legend of Fenju: If it's base were Emerald/Ruby, I'd have voted for it. But, anyway, it seems very good. But, Pokémon Iris was better.

July 12th, 2009, 5:27 AM
I vote for LoF
Its kinda addicting :(

July 13th, 2009, 1:06 AM
Azure Horizons. I know I won't regret voting for it. I just know it.

July 13th, 2009, 7:38 AM
Legend of Fenju
It's the one I've heard of before this, and I like it's gameplay

July 13th, 2009, 11:34 AM
Legend of Fenju is pretty much interesting scripts and stuff. It's a good one. I'm not pretty interested in Pokémon Azure Horizons so it's out. And I never saw Pokémon Iris yet. Until I decide which one deserves for this month. I'm still undecided.

July 14th, 2009, 12:24 PM
I vote to Iris this hack is great

July 14th, 2009, 1:38 PM
I love how Iris is presented but sadly, I hadn't heard of it before reading this post and I don't think it would be fair to vote on a whim.
With Iris gone, that leaves two hacks which both deserve to win this. It was difficult to decide which one to vote for. Unfortunately, Legend of Fenju has taken a huge, quite possibly inexorable lead over the competition, which is most likely due to 1) impressive graphics and 2) the fact that it has been around long enough to generate a large fanbase. Azure Horizons is just as beautiful in my opinion, without having all those spiffy ice tiles (however enticing they may or may not be) but it just isn't as well known as Legend of Fenju. I ended up voting for Azure Horizons because it has always been a policy of mine to vote for the underdog. Sadly, it will probably be in vain but regardless, I believe Azure Horizons is just as good, if not better, than Legend of Fenju.

July 14th, 2009, 2:10 PM
I think "Pokémon Azure Horizons" looks like it's going to be the best. I liked the way "Pokémon Iris" but it's on a different language lamo.

July 15th, 2009, 8:11 PM
Lof seems to me to have a great tileset and the maps are really good too
Iris- eh... this is the first time I have seen it soooo... no
Azure Horizons- ... It needs more improvement as of yet,So LOF is the best in my view

July 15th, 2009, 8:22 PM
Azure Horizons- ... It needs more improvement as of yet
Could you please elaborate on what you think needs to be improved?

I lol'd.

Yeah, I'll vote for Azure because, well, it looks a lot more professional than the others. =P

July 15th, 2009, 11:35 PM
i have to agree with sasquatchd00d vote for Azure Horizons (why couldn't life of gaurdians be on the list :( )

July 16th, 2009, 12:58 AM
i have to agree with sasquatchd00d vote for Azure Horizons (why couldn't life of gaurdians be on the list :( )

Because Life of Guardians already won the HOtM Jan. Anyway I vote for Iris because it has great scripts and tiles.

July 16th, 2009, 8:35 AM
legend of fenju because i looked at all the threads and fenjus story and tiles are the best for me

July 17th, 2009, 3:25 AM
Oh wow I didnt even know there was a hotm and now that someone told me i see i got so many votes... thx for that to al lwho voted for me so far

but the reason why im actually posting here is that there is no date given which marks the end of the voting... ill be away from the 31st this month for 2 weeks, so in case my hack wins this i would get to know about it 2 weeks later and i couldnt hold a stupid speach thanking everybody and saying what an honor it is for me blablabla

so is there a date?

July 19th, 2009, 2:33 PM
Oblivously people have the most voting on Pokémon Legend of Fenju. That would be my final decision. Plus I like how the gameplay goes with their video sharing account.

July 26th, 2009, 4:27 AM
I'll vote for Pokemon Azure Horizons cause it has very good tiles that can attract players directly.............I also like Pokemon Iris but its not in english language its in spanish........I wanna say to all hackers that better make your hack in english language so that many people would like to play it..............

July 26th, 2009, 11:30 AM
ill vote for Azure Horizons i would vot for iris but sadly it is not in english and i dont now any spanish cause im learning japanise the hardway (by myself with pc)

July 31st, 2009, 2:07 PM
thx in advance to all who voted for me, its pretty obvious my hacks gonna win this but ill be on vacation from tomorrow morning til 13th of august so i wouldnt have the time to thank people then...

July 31st, 2009, 8:55 PM
I'll vote for Fenju!
The reason is because of the tiles.
Also the story is epic.
