    -I Understand.
    -I'll wait, take your time.
    -That's good to hear.

    Hey!
    - I won't do that until the hack is done (maybe someone else will make them if there's enough demand). Adding two more patches means adding another half an hour of my time to every update, as I would have to change the shiny rate, build the ROM, make the patch, then repeat two more times, which just isn't worth it, especially once the standard version is done and that becomes six patches. Drayano could do that for Renegade Platinum because he doesn't continually update his hacks past a certain point, and the shiny rate change in Plat is just a quick hex edit.
    - I haven't planned anything on "paper" so to speak but yeah I've got some ideas for most trainers. Some of them are waiting for the gen 8 DLC moves to get their final teams!
    - Already done! Most gen VI+ features are part of the battle engine upgrade.

    Hi.

    -Can you make 1/8192 & 1/4096 shiny rate patches and put them in additional patches folder (Because I'm sure some others won't like the increasing shiny rates, even I prefer the old way)? I know there are patches (that you can't create) on Discord, but I don't think it's hard to create the shiny rate patches compared to other patches, even Drayano60 made these for Renegade Platinum.
    -Before the release of Inclement Emerald, did you already plan different trainer rosters for Gen 8, Standard & Insanity mode in your notepad?
    -Would you add a Critical Catch (depends of numbers of caught Pokemon) in this romhack?

    Hey!

    - Nope! I find the AI is too stupid to use those well and they only delay the inevitable, so no more healing items on trainers.
    - Already done!
    - Mr Dollsteak himself is working on animation data for those and Lunos has already prepped the sprites for the Pokemon expansion, so fortunately I don't need to worry about them.

    Yeah, I suspect some people are downloading pre-patched versions, and as usual the people making said pre-patched versions are completely clueless, so they're not patched properly (probably used the wrong base ROM/didn't even read the instructions, just like they did with EXWY). For most people MyBoy seems to work without issues.

    Hey.

    -In Normal & Hard mode, do Gym Leaders/Bosses/E4/Champion have healing items to heal their Pokemon?
    -Would you add new areas names in Hoenn map (Seaside Cave, Dewford Meadow, Dewford Manor..etc)?
    -I know you have to fix bugs and freezes and gameplay first, but MrDollSteak released all Gen VI (except Megas) second frames in Dropbox if you want to download.

    I remembered someone in the thread said that Inclement Emerald didn't work on his MyBoy, but me, I tried it (Version 1.3.1) on my phone (MyBoy) just for a little "test", and it worked without problem; Intro, Overworld, Wild & Rival battles, no issue.

    Oh absolutely, the gen 5 and below 3DS cries are horrible lol. Won't be changing those! The gen 5 cries are already rips from BW2, so the weird clicks aren't due to the cries themselves - they could be due to a flaw with the compression algorithm used on them.

    If you mean by "cries from the 3DS games", i just hope only from gen 6 & 7 Pokemon, because original cries from Gen 1-5 should stay as it is in Inclement Emerald in my opinion, but you could also rip gen V cries from B2W2 to fix some bugged cries, no?

    I see what you mean about Legends: Arceus, we'll see and you'll get some ideas, it's your romhack after all.

    Hey!
    - From what we've seen so far the Arceus game isn't a standard Pokemon game - it doesn't look like it's going to have the usual turn based battles, so it might not even have abilities etc.
    - At some point I'll badger Ultima over RHH to teach me how to rip cries from the 3DS games so I can update them. That will mean they'll be high quality, have lower sample rates, and it'll be possible to compress many of them to save space.
    - Should be fine! Hopefully I'll get the game to a stable-ish point (apart from the battle engine) before lockdown ends so there'll be no rush to fix things.

    I'm not annoyed, if my responses seem shorter than usual it's just because a lot of people are messaging me lately!

    Hello again.

    -I don't want to be annoying with you about something, but: when you said "I'm not sure anything other than the new forms will fit in a standard Pokémon game", do you mean only Hisuian forms or new Pokemon (Basculegion...etc) and forms (with their new moves and new abilities)? And by "anything" you mean items, lore, battle system? Because I didn't understand. Hope this romhack have more spaces left for new ones.
    -If mr. egg and/or RHH update their expansions and engines, I wonder if there'll be more spaces in the rom for the future.
    -Hope your romhacking (updates & fixes) and your daily job after lockdown will not give you stress or not get you too tired.

    If you're annoyed that I asked you a bit too much about spaces and some new pokemon in Inclement Emerald, let me know.

    I'll probably end up using the generic gen 4 legendary theme for most legendaries as it's the only one that isn't meant for a specific group of mons. More legendaries are a long way off though so that might change! Will keep your suggestions in mind.

    -I would love that New Pokemon & forms & moves & abilities from BDSP & Legends: Arceus will be in Inclement Emerald, but for others like items & system...etc, it's up to you to decide what will fit in this romhack.
    -Well, if you can't add B2W2 soundfont for space reason, I think maybe Hoenn weather trio or Dialga/Palkia themes would fit for legendaries like Reshiram, Yveltal, Zacian...etc
    Deoxys theme for Ultra Beasts.
    Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf theme for Tapus and Cobalion and friends.
    Giratina theme or Hoenn weather trio theme for Necrozma, Eternatus...etc
    Regi theme (Gba or Ds ver.) for Regieleki & Regidrago.
    For the rest....it's up to you.

    But hope B2W2 soundfonts & some midis will make in it in the future if that's the case.

    Hey!

    - Yeah, that's why the giant red text box on the first page says they aren't all available! There's not enough room for all of them.
    - Maybe! I'd like to, but it'll require some major UI changes as 12 character names don't fit in the vanilla text boxes.
    - Ooh I'll fix that!
    - Depends on what they are. I'm not sure anything other than the new forms will fit in a standard Pokémon game, we'll see though.
    - I'd like to add at least some BW2 tracks for legendary battles etc., but it'll probably need more space than I have. I'll be able to cut down on some wasted space in future (mostly due to uncompressed cries) but for now it's probably not doable.
    - I'll definitely have sprites for the PWT trainers, got one done already (only a lot more to go...)
    - I've already got new (well, HGSS) overworld sprites for some legendaries. Gne IV facilities are unlikely I think, the existing ones are enough work!

    Hi.

    -There are some 1st stage Pokemon that are not in the Wild encounter documentation, like Pancham...etc
    -Could you make 12 Pokemon name characters possible (for example: Fletchinder instead of Fletchindr, Crabominable instead of Crabominab...etc)
    -In wild encounter documentation, there's one mistake: one of the fossil pokemon is written "Archeops", it should've been "Archen".
    -I hope Inclement Emerald haves more data space to add new elements:
    . BDSP & Legends: Arceus elements (after the release of these games of course).
    . B2W2 soundfonts and Gen V midis.
    . Pokemon World Tournament and Leaders/Champions sprites.
    . New overworld sprites for Legendaries, Gen IV facilities (maybe), and PWT.

    I hope so! They've done well keeping them updated so far.

    I see.
    I guess they will update their own patches on Discord depending on the future Inclement Emerald releases on GitHub.
