    I created this account just to say thank you for devoting your time and effort into this project. I know other romhacks probably do similar things to yours, but yours really made me enjoy my favourite pokemon game again. You don't know my surprise and excitement when I found you made Luxray dark/electric, just as god intended, and all the little QoL changes. And the difficulty, woof. So good. The gym battles actually made me think of strats and muk, because I can't just blaze through with no thought to the method. Seriously invigorating and exciting. Like I was playing competitive against actual people.

    I am currently stuck in a hospital, just finished beating the champion as I type this, with a smile on my face.

    Thank you, and I eagerly await your updates so I can start a new save and beat the game again with fresh pokemon.

    Hey Buffel Saft, I was wondering if you are going to make type changes to gen 8 pokemon and in any other generations (talking about inclement emerald of course). I am intrigued in what your thought process will be. Another question, will you make the gigantamax pokemon mega evolutions and if there might be more fan favorite pokemon that might mega evolve (wink "haxorus" wink) ? Anyway, waiting anxiously for your new release. Keep up the good work.

    Ah, dang. Well if that's the only way, then that's that. Thanks for the help!

    Hi Buffel Salt, I'm a big fan of Photonic Sun, so much so that I started working on an Ultra Sun hack of my own, and I ran into an issue that I'd like your advice on if you don't mind. Basically, how did you figure out where each trainer was located in game? I figure worse comes to worst, I could just use Serebii to cross reference everything myself, but it feels like there should be an easier way of doing that, and I wanted pick your brain on that.

    Hey man, just created an account so I could let you know that Inclement Emerald was a lot of fun and probably the best romhack I've ever played. It balanced out challenge with reason, faithfulness to the games with really cool little additions, and rebalancing super well. It was sincerely a delight to play. I hope you make another hack someday because It's spoiled me for pokemon games forever!

    Thank you!

    Well, what can I say when you are articulating it so graciously! Honchcrow is also a gen 4 pokemon with Dark/Flying typing, however, it is not all to my liking, design wise.

    Well, Rock/Flying, Electric/Flying and Dark/Flying are three type combinations where both the typing perfectly complement each other in offence and defence! Perhaps in its base form, Staraptor doesn't have any elements of Electric, Dark, or Rock typing. However, in its mega form, it gains some element of Rock typing and evolves into a true Predator of sky as it should be!! In all honesty, I'm just lobbying for my beloved bird to be the best bird available in IE. : ) Ampharos also got the extra Dragon typing in its mega form, right?

    Yeah, they are there. Hey, by the way, I would like to suggest a Rock/Flying Mega for Staraptor, if you ever sit down to do one for it. It would be one hell of a bird, IMO. Just recommending! Also, when is version 2.0 coming, any hints?

    Yeah, Sheer Force is not very helpful on Braviary. On the other hand, Defiant will only work if opposing mon has Intimidate, right? These kinda moves very amazing on early routes as all the bugs and other mons spam stat reducing moves, however, later on, stat reducing moves are hardly used, except Intimidate, IMO.

    Well, music to my ears, mate. I am anticipating a Grass/Rock Gorilla, Fire/Electric Bunny and Water/Ghost Sniper. : )

    Protect is not my battle style altogether, I'm afraid. I go all out attack, like Misty!!

    The new braviary would be a very welcome addtion! Highly anticipated along with H. Zorua line and others.

    Also, regarding Dodrio, I'm very selective about the mons I choose and I'm not going to choose this one, sorry about that. I was not aware about Swellow and Unfezant getting boost that way, apologies. To be honest, I am a bit jealous that Toucannon got buffs while my Staraptor and Braviary got nothing!! I have decided that I'm going to choose Sheer Force Braviary for my plahthrough. If you don't mind, could you please suggest me moves that get boost by Sheer Force, which I can teach to Braviary. ; )

    Yup, all well here!

    Glad to hear that Gen 8 is coming soon, however, not very excited for standard Gen 8 mons, though. Will you do rebalancing on them as well? I wish you will do your things on them too.

    That might be the case. Opposing teams were spamming water moves on my Typhlosion as well. I guess, mons with quad weaknesses will not fair well in IE.

    Also, I found that defence buffed Skill Link Toucannon with Jolly Nature and Life Orb is quite powerful in IE! It saved my life countless times. The same is the case with Buffed Vikavolt. In my second playthrough I wanted to play with a different bird, however, I am not able to point out which one. Toucannon always stands out. I have some suggestions:
    1. Could you please make Braviary Psychic/Flying type, the new variant which was just showcased?
    2. Do some rebalancing to Swellow, Unfezant or Staraptor; perhaps new typing? They are good, Staraptor, IMO is great, however, in comparison to Toucannon, it fades away.

    Hey Buffel!

    Hope you are doing good.

    I am in the middle of my second playthrough of IE, and I'll humbly admit that for the first time in my life, I didn't get bored by playing the same hack twice in a short span of time. The latest features are nothing short of amazing, new level caps forces you to make intelligent choices, and the rebalanced mons are pretty interesting as well. You have imbued a new life to the fan favourite for sure! IMO, IE is the best QoL Emerald hack at present, period. Two thumbs up mate, you have earned it! Wish you best of luck for the gen 8 implementation and looking forward to it for a third playthrough as well!

    P.S. My Ace Mon, Swampert got cleaned up so many times by opposing teams that I have to take it out of the equation. IE bewildered me, seriously. It has never happened before. Every other mon has a grass move in their sleeve, and they use it immediately on it, even a Gyarados, seriously. I'm just wondering whether you have taken special measures against Swampert or is it just the AI, getting smarter?

    I got an idea, for gen V "bugged" cries, why won't you rip from BW1 ROM & replace these cries? Maybe it won't happen the same issue.

    I'm doing good, Thanks for the answers.

    -I used an X item after when a trainer (scientist) used an X def to his Porygon 2 in Prismatic Moon, and I'll use it only after other trainers use X items in other games/hacks, but aside of that, didn't/won't use it.
    -For some "bugged" Gen V cries, did you add it yourself, or are they from Pokeemerald expansion? Just wondering.
