    - 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?

    - 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.
