    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.

    - 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's up to you.

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

    - 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!

    -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.

    Yeah, might be a good idea. I'll worry about that once the game stops freezing though!

    You could maybe post the additional Discord patches download links in spoiler (in the 1st post) if you can, so they can download them easily here, or maybe put them in release folder/rar file?
    If that's not the case, that's ok, I just hope they know what to do, and where they'll get.

    That's a good point, I'll add a note to the first post! I haven't actually checked what's been made so far, guess I should take a look some time.

    Well, it's your game, and if they want to change the system or toggle some twists, they'll go to discord to download some patches, and that's fantastic as you said, I wonder if they did the shiny chance patches (like in Renegade Platinum), No Megas or Custom Megas patches, or others...
    Make sure you write in your hackrom description about additional patches from Discord (No EV...etc) so players can download there.

    - Much like my other hacks the exp share is integral to the level curve and shouldn't ever be off; I can't just remove over half of the trainer experience from the game and expect it to work! That said there are definitely some issues with the current exp system and I'll be working on solutions today.

    - One thing I learned from the 3DS hacks is that too many versions is a bad idea; the more I make the harder it becomes to update the game, so I'll be sticking with two patches only this time. The discord patches are being made by someone else, which is fantastic - the hack is open source, so I've got no problem with other people making their own patches if they want to change some part of it. If enough people really can't handle the exp share someone might eventually make a patch to remove it, and all the balance issues that come with that change will be something they need to fix.

    -It would be better that you can make an exp. share togglable, and make it as key item; there are players who prefer it "off" and sometimes toggle "on" for grinding their Pokemon by 50% exp (I understand your opinion when you responded them about Exp Share, but I'm afraid that they (who don't like this untogglable exp share) will maybe start some controversy even though you were trying to explain them).

    Edit: I discovered that, somebody in the thread requested you a challenge mode with No EV option, and somebody else told him/her that it exists a patch for it on I got an idea:
    Why won't you make a "Deactivate Exp Share" patch (Xdelta patch file), and "Reactivate Exp Share" patch aswell? So players can decide, what do you think?
