    The grind never ends, eh? Even during this COVID-19 nonsense, they wanted you to pop into the office?? Or you were working from home earlier in the year then back to the office recently?
    I work in Secretarial Service. In April, we were working from home, later it was like going to office on every alternate day and now it is has become regular. I have recently been transferred to a very important seat, so I have been asked to attend office even on weekends. Then there are late sittings as well. I pray to God sincerely that I may be transferred to a better seat.

    In my younger days I used to focus on just one team but as I've played through the generations I learned to train as many Pokemon as I can to give me a wide variety to choose from for when the big time battles are on the horizon. Usually pays off and it's how I've gotten to know the Pokemon of later generations.
    I am very selective in my pickings and craft my team very scrupulously. My team usually revolves around Swampert or some other Anchor mon. No time for trash mons!

    The ones I took note of were Pokemon like Anchorage (Water/Steel), that Orange Arch Gyarados you mentioned, Orange Nidoking (Poison/Fire) and Orange Dragonair (Dragon/Fairy).
    Could you please tell me where can I capture that particular Dragonite?

    Once I finish this walkthrough, that's it. It's just not going to be the same without Lunos around to help and if the creator of the game can't even respond when guides are asked for, then that's not a good sign.
    Yup, I totally agree with you. Without Lunos, I also feel alienated and distanced from Adventures Red. It's such a massive hack and sometimes I feel lost.

    I am gladly looking forward for your walkthrough of Saffron!

    are you working from home? School? Both? Hmm, so maybe I'd go into Zeta/Omicron first before Insurgence. Just to see the team's early work. I don't mind a dark story, not many Pokemon games go that far in their stories.
    I work full time and have to attend office on weekdays; sometimes they even ask me to come to weekends. What to do, that's how the world works! I have not yet played Zeta / Omicron, however I intend to play them some fine day. Hey, there is an infamous Cult Boss in Insurgence; her name is Audrey and she specializes in Water type mons. She is a tough nut to crack and her dialogues lines are pretty interesting!

    Really? I've already started though, even completed a couple of chapters and am at the beginning of another one. I'll just continue and hope that I can pick up under my current save file in the next update. I had to start a new one just for Beta 15+ Exp (skipping the Kanto & Orange sagas) because when I loaded my Beta 15 save it was a mess. Bag items jumbled up and it's like nothing has changed. Go to Red's house, his Mom is there. Try to teleport to the last Orange Arch islands and you're told that they are not available. But the Master Trainers are there funny enough. I'm keeping that old save file for references (getting information on the Orange Arch regional variants, etc) because in the Exp save file (since I've skipped ahead to the new content) I was just given an assembled team of Lv160 Pokemon (Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Venusaur, Poliwrath, Pikachu, Snorlax), HMs and some Key Items.
    I have started my playthrough as well! I am currently at fuchia safari zone. I plan to dump Venusaur, Poli and Pikachu. Would love to assemble a new team. I am particularly looking forward to add Icy Snorlax to my roster. Hey, bye the way are there good variants in orange islands? I know Pigeot's typing in Dark / Flying and I am certainly going to capture it. But what about other mons? Is there an intersting mons to capture? I am loving the Water / Dragon Gyrados that evolves from the Fake Feebas that you get from the trader near Mount Moon!

    Great that it has all the latest features but if it is only about battles as of now then I'll hold off until "story mode" gets going proper. With all the legit hype growing around Unbound,I think the wait will be worth it.
    Yup! Unbound is the next big thing here on PC! Let's just hope that it lives up to the hype. Everyone is expecting is to be a smash hit and expectations are sky high atm. Hey, by the way, there is one more hack that is worth mentioning and it's Saffron. It's also pretty exciting to be honest and the creater has given word that after finishing the hack he will release the hack engine as open source! His philanthropy is commendable. There is a demo available, but it's outdated. Do check the screenies though, they are pretty refreshing!

    Hi! Are you going to do a walkthrough of Pokémon Adenture Red Chapter Vol 1? I'm Kinda a fan of your walkthroughs hahaha. Aethestode cancelled its last update, so the game has its final release. ;)

    I'll check Pandora and Castaway when I get some free time. I unexpectedly got busy with life at the moment. Insurgence is a highly acclaimed fan game by the way. It's being developed by the same group of people who worked on Zeta / Omicron; and these titles are amazing as well. I have not yet played Zeta / Omicron but heard that they are great too.

    Insurgence has a dark story. It's about different cults fighting for the Torren region dominion. The MC is the son the Hero who saved the region once. Story is good by the way.

    I don't know much about editing the fan games by the way, sorry about that.

    Aethesode is adding some more content to the beta 15 + Exp, so do wait till that update before moving on to the walkthroughs. Most of the hackers nowadays spend their time on Discord. However, I personally prefer PC.

    Yup, it's just the battles as of now; however, they are jam packed with all the latest features. I personally find it boring to be honest.

    I have never heard of Castaway and Pandora, seriously! But if you have not played Insurgence yet then you are missing the king of all fangames. Its miles ahead of any other fangame ever released, more like the Adventures Red of fangames. It's complete as of now, just give it a try, you won't be disappointed! The Delta pokes are mind-blowing! However, not all are obtainable early and some of them are post-game content.

    I am not at all interested in SwSh. I lost my interest after gen 5. I liked the legendaries of gen 6, only legendaries. Gen 7 was meh, except Greninja. Gen 8 is a total mess. I don't even want to squander my hard-earned money on these expensive games anyway. If you want a gen 8 experience, do give Radical Red a try, it worth it, I bet.

    Probably that's why Lunos and Aethesode went separate ways, I guess. There is a youtube channel named Hero Voltsy; he is releasing walkthroughs of beta 15, I guess. Do check that out for reference. Sakakii, the creator of Kanlara has not logged on for quite some time now. I wonder if he is still working on some hack or moved on with life.

    Unbound is probably going to be the chartbuster hack of all time if released though! Skeli is implementing all the available features till Crown Tundra on his CFRU Engine. It will probably take time and he is in no hurry anyway. Unbound is pretty special and its one to certainly look out for. However, you can try out its Battle Frontier Simulation. It's amazing!

    no no, I mean waiting for SA to allow US citizens to visit - I've been in the US since november of last year :( from what bf says they're not doing a good job at all, and their home affairs aren't replying to me at all no matter who I contact on if it's okay for me to fly to UAE for 10+ days and then over there. it sucks.. the lazy work culture is definitely one of the more annoying downsides

    Hey, have you ever played Pokemon Insurgence? It has Delta pokemons as RVs. They are totally mind-blowing mate! Those guys are giving better pokemons than Game Freak, I mean it, seriously!

    I also agree that, perhaps, GameFreak is running out of ideas and they are just presenting more and more bloated stuff, nothing original. At least, not to my tastes.

    Let's just hope that Aethestode is kind enough to write the guides about added bonus chapters in beta 15+. Seriously, I don't even know what has been added in the latest beta. Adevntures Red is such a big project, probably the biggest on PC. The only hack that comes to my mind that is close enough is Skeli's Unbound!

    I'd call it bad, but there're too many stupids here that call USA efforts as 'praiseworthy' b/c the results (so far) are marginally better than the 'do nothing' option that our federal gov't keeps governing toward. While other developed countries around the world are basically issuing UBIs to the tune of monthly multi-thousand US dollar checks or partial employment payments while furloughed until covid19 is over, our federal gov't issued a one-time payment of only $1200 while homelessness & job loss are projected to reach historic highs when compared to even the Great Depression of the 1930s.

    I know that's a lot to unpack here to essentially a stranger but damn... To have a nation that claims to be 'number 1' and the 'we can do anything in America' sloganeering, our officials always play the austerity card whenever it's policy meant toward the citizenry, but when it comes to serving our elite's interests they're always covered during a crisis.

    Well, I love regional formes, they add a nice variety to the game, don't they? However, they are still the same poke with a different typing right? Same wine in a different bottle might be a proper analogy. Compare Electabuzz and Electivire, the latter is amazing competitively! It gets the right boosts at the right places. It even looks awesome designwise! I long for these kinda pokes. Now, how about a regional variant for Electabuzz and Electivire, which one would you choose? Most of the people would definitely go for the latter. These Megas and Dynamaxing seem kinda bloatware to me!

    Scalet is trying her level best alright. I have nothing against her. She is a very nice person. But do give a look to the Adventures Red OP and you will know what Lunos did for the Adventures Red hack over the years. Now we don't have any current guides or even a poke location list...

    You would call vanilla hacks somewhat basic or primitive I guess. Plain story, graphics, features etc. I would prefer to stick with Gen III hacks; particularly Firered and Emerald.

    Regarding Mega Evolution; I don't like it one bit. I wonder why. I loved it when they gave 3rd evos for Magmar, Electabuzz, Togetic etc. They don't announce something like this anymore. So, I like my Swampert as it is! I know nothing about Digimon by the way!

    Without Lunos, we are not getting any guides, tips or help in the Adventures Red thread. Lunos was super helpful..I miss him there.

    Does the hack have a new story as well like continuing after the original Emerald plot or you're just playing through the same plot but with updated features and extras?
    These kinda hacks are called QoL or Quality of life changes hack. They build on the same story, just some updated features and graphics and all.

    No worries, just select the feature from the available feature list and bingo!

    Hey, how is pokemon grape? It's a vanilla hack, right? I would like to give it a try but the additional types turn me down. I mean, 18 types are more than enough, no.

    I have never thought about any pokemon other than Swampert. We usually get one in all the games. Except for one weakness, this guy can take multiple hits and still stand tall, amazing, right? No other poke comes to my mind, seriously.

    I was totally smitten by Mega Power's story. You get lots of good pokes in your journey. The MC was not a 10-year-old kid on a world-saving mission; I really appreciated that. The final scene where there was a Court proceeding taking place was simply amazing in my opinion! Regarding Nameless, I have not played it fully. So I might not be able to give a correct opinion, however, the dialogues are too long and time taking, so that might hurt you a bit. I personally didn't like the MC's costume. All of 1158's hacks are story driven and Nameless is no different. It's also a story centric hack.

    I rate Stigma pretty high, maybe second to Adventures Red. Dialogues are gross at a couple of places, however, I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's a fun hack. I would like to know your opinion on Stigma when you are done with it.

    Radical Red is QoL hack just like Altered Emerald alright. I am not a fan of QoL hacks as well. Stranded is a breath of fresh air! I am looking forward to playing it. However, its in pretty early stages of development atm.

    Yup, Lunos is no longer involved with Adventures Red Chapter and the developer rarely visits PC. Earlier, Aethestode talked about adding more side chapters to the beta 15, that's what Exp Pass was all about; to the best of my knowledge. You should probably contact scarlet night for latest info as she is maintaining Adventures Red thread nowadays.
