    - Yup looks like there a re plenty of bugs to fix! Doesn't help that some people are playing a modified source version instead of a release version.
    - For bugs I either fix them immediately or add them to the issues page on github if they're big ones. For suggestions I add them to a text file full of notes.

    -So after you released the game, you got to fix bugs and some difficulties first, then after that, you'll fix things like cries, sprites, and others later, right? That's understandable.
    -When I & your fans gave you bugs to fix & some suggestions to add in Inclement Emerald, did you take notes and wrote them in some notebook or Word software so you can't forget them?

    - I thought there were more but that's not so bad if that's most of them. It can be quite time consuming to convert spritesheets into decomp format, usually due to palette issues that have be fixed by hand. Will try to get them done once RHH is working on pull requests again (otherwise I'll have to do it twice!).

    - Yeah I'll either remove some duplicate encounters in the Safari Zone or just add them to the game corner with the other regional forms (maybe both).

    Sounds good! Looking forward to seeing what your team ends up being!

    -There are still other Gen 5 Pokemon that are missing their second frames sprites (since those are still complete in this site), I noticed them thanks to Gen 3 Tools software (even though I can't romhack lol):
    Musharna Seismitoad Dwebble Crustle Sigilyph Trubbish Gabordor Gothita Gothorita Gothitelle Duosion Reuniclus Deerling Sawsbuck Druddigon Durant Larvesta Volacrona Sword Trio Kami Trio Meloetta....I don't know if I miss some.

    -If you add Hisuian forms in Inclement Emerald after the end of January 2022, could you replace some Safari Zone encounters so that wouldn't be too crowded there like you said.....or maybe you have your own idea.

    Well I'm gonna say again, I'll wait until the release with Gen 8, Frontier, Standard, and BDSP & Legends stuffs so I can play other Pokemon & non-Pokemon games this year, and do more important things for me, I'm patient, so take your time.
    And when I finish Inclement Emerald in 2022 (Standard with custom megas, Hard mode, Set Mode, 3 healing items per battle), I prefer to post my hall of fame in your profile/messages here like I did with my Eternal X & Prismatic Moon because I get used to it, and I raaaarely post in threads and stuff like that, that's just my preference :(
    ....maybe I will tell you something else if I have some silly ideas next time like always.

    That's pretty close to what I'll end up going with I think, they all fit thematically! It depends on space in those locations of course, as I want to avoid overcrowding maps if possible. A few of them might have to be gift mons but hopefully most will fit somewhere.

    Granite Cave: Impidimp
    Dewford Meadow: Gossifleur
    Dewford Manor: Sinistea
    Route 110: Hattena

    Route 117: Milcery
    Route 111 (Desert): Silicobra
    Sandstrewn Ruins: Stonjourner
    Route 112: Morpeko
    Fiery Path: Sizzlipede
    Route 113: Cufant
    Route 114: Cramorant

    - That's something I could look at doing once the hack is 100% finished; the tricky part is removing the custom stones from the overworld due to the format the scripts are in. Wouldn't be too time consuming but it will make the source code a little messy.
    - Yeah I'll wait until they're done here; looks like Mr. Dollsteak is making good progress on the gen 6 ones, but I expect gen 7-8 will be a while away.
    - It's nice to finally have the tread up, looks like I've already got bugs to fix!

    -I have an Idea: why won't you make 2 versions of standard; one with custom mega evolutions and other without them.....but I think it'll be time consuming for you, no?
    -I think for second frames sprites of Gen 6-8, you'll wait till they're all completed in this site, right? (I know, I'm annoying with my "second frame sprites" again & again)
    -.......Finally your romhack thread is on Sideshow Showcase after few days.

    Yep that's the plan!

    Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing Game Freak try something new with Pokémon, looks like it could be really good.

    So New Pokemon & Hisuian forms & moves & abilities from Legends: Arceus (and maybe BDSP) will be in Inclement Emerald maybe in March/April 2022, got it.

    Speaking of which, are you looking forward to Legends: Arceus? Cuz after I saw the trailer yesterday, maybe I'll try it (instead of BDSM) later on Switch emulator thanks to its gameplay, lore, and some new stuffs.

    Ok thanks, that's very helpful! Probably will have to wait until BDSP and Legends to get the tutor info.

    I think the new mons from Legends will be in, but gen 9 is unlikely as new Pokémon take up quite a lot of space in the ROM (mostly due to cries and sprites), and I don't think I can get another generation in there. I really like the idea of evolutions for Stantler and Basculin though, so I might try to get them into Inclement Emerald too (once we have their stats and cries of course).

    I'm fine, despite what was going on in Algeria this month (Covid, Oxygene, Wildfires...etc).

    For Standard version:
    -Custom tutor & TM moves.....I think pokemon that didn't exist in SwSh should learn tutor moves like in other official games in Standard version, maybe you'll wait till BDSP & Legends: Arceus?
    -Custom Megas on the other hand, keep them in Standard version (along with their own custom mega abilities), and they also have their standard stats (like Mega Butterfree in Pokemon Changes documentation), I would love to try one of these.

    Oh, if you make your next Romhack (with your custom region) after Inclement Emerald, will you include Pokemon from Gen 9 & Legends: Arceus? (I know I asked this already, but oh well)

    Hey, I'm in covid lockdown again but it's not so bad, just waiting for the Inclement Emerald thread to be approved. How are you?

    Mm I've noticed that too, not sure what the cause is as the audio files for the cries don't have that problem, and it does seem to be just gen 5 mons. It's pretty annoying though so I'll definitely try to fix it!

    Thanks, I hope so too!
    Speaking of the Standard version, I actually have a few questions for you about what you'd like that version to include. It's not done yet because the hack has custom move tutors and mega evolutions, along with some battle changes which would be tricky (but not impossible) to remove from the game. On top of that some Pokémon don't exist in gen 8, so there's no official TM/tutor compatibility for them and I had to guess what they should learn (with a bit of help from Pokémon Home).

    So what I'd like to ask is: would these changes bother you if they were kept in the standard version? Or is it enough to remove all the base stat, typing and ability changes, but keep the custom tutors and megas?

    Hey, how's it going ?

    After I downloaded the 1.0 version of your Inclement Emerald in your GitHub, I just played it a little bit for a little "test" on mGBA (PC), then whenever I heard Snivy, Lillipup, Tympole & Gothita cries, I heard a little "dot" noise in each cry if you want to fix them (maybe other 5th gen cries have maybe the same problem, no?).

    Otherwise, congrats for releasing the game, hope people will really like it.
    I'll wait till the version with Standard mode, Gen 8, and Battle Frontier, so I'll play it maybe in end of 2021 or beginning of 2022.
    Take care :)

    - An ANZ region would be cool, though I wouldn't mind it just being NZ! I guess I'd like to see a region based on Russia, it'd be a good excuse to have some more snowy routes.
    - Maybe, but only if I can figure how to get Yuzu and PKNX working without a hacked switch (or if I can hack my Switch - that'd be better!). Still haven't decided what I'll work on after Emerald.
    - I'm aware of those, might have to give them a try sometime. Still want to finish Unbound and Radical Red first though!
