    No problem, VMs are okay. I don't blame you for skipping Clover, even though it is one of the most well made hacks out there. One of the best features is HMs which can be overwritten like TMs. That's on top of some the HMs having been upgraded too like Flash being an Electric move that deals damage with 100% accuracy, Cut being a Steel move, Rock Climb a Rock move and Strength switched from Normal to Fighting. I really liked that and I really hope newer hacks and updates will adopt this feature or improve on it or offer better alternatives rather than completely doing away with HMs because those are decent moves being left out of the game (Strength, Surf, Dive, Waterfall, Fly). But on the other hand...yeah, there is a lot to dislike about Clover. Initially I thought the game was going to be about spoofing the Pokemon universe while offering a whole new story, regions and maybe throwing in pop culture references. All that is there but I can do without the sex and toilet humour haha.

    I'm trying to remember if Zorya was in Kanlara Adventures, because that's the one I played a while back. But I'll be sure to be ready for him, no worries. The Demon Pokemon concept was fresh, I hope it has been expanded in Ultimate because in Adventures I thought it wasn't made enough of a major feature for the story.

    Truth be told, I don't plan my walkthroughs. No script, no bullet points or anything. I type them out as I play through the games so my reactions and little notes are in "real time" (except for parts where I play ahead to check stuff out or confirm something). With each guide that I've done I've learned to do better while making the guides as simple to follow as possible and entertaining too. That's it really. It's cool that you invest in the story, I play for the story mostly these days. To see how creative people are, what new regions do they have to show and so on. I won't gripe about which generations of Pokemon are in the game or absent from it haha just give us a fine story first and take it from there. Are there any hacks you're currently playing?

    Fair enough! Trade mons have been changed quite a bit, they're all meant to help out with the early gyms (e.g. you can get a Pawniard with Defiant in Rustboro instead of the Makuhita), and I've added new ones to Dewford, Mauville and Lavaridge too. The Wynaut egg is the same, but there's a new NPC in the daycare who will give you a random egg daily that knows an egg or event move. They're currently generated from a small list so you won't get anything too broken there, but it's the only way to get things like Bagon and Rhyhorn early on. The Mauville game corner has all the starters for sale, as well as some of the Alolan forms, Porygon and Munchlax.

    Yeah, it's not too hard to have separate patches too, so might as well! Rotom's form change is handled by talking to a box in Birch's Lab for now (same as in ORAS), but I'll probably add the key item that handles it in Sword and Shield later. Not sure if a Hoenn hack is the best place for a regional form of a Hoenn mon, but I'll keep that in mind if I do add regional forms for the starters later on! The Exp Share's given to you in Petalburg Woods, so you won't have to wait too long for it.

    Definitely won't be adding a new type, but type/stat/ability changes etc. are included, along with a version without them for purists. I do like the idea of custom regional variants, but for now I'm just going to have a couple of custom mega evolutions (assuming I can come up with decent designs). New side quests are something I'm planning for post game, but some of the existing ones have been tweaked to include rare Pokemon or items e.g. the New Mauville quest also includes a one-time Rotom event. There are a few new locations in the game too, so they should freshen up the experience a bit!
    Those are nice HP box designs for sure! UI changes are probably going to be something I'll add in a future version, the existing one is good enough for now.

    You're welcome! I like Altered Emerald too, it has so many creative changes like that (Disguise Sudowoodo is brilliant). I'm still not 100% decided on the name of my hack; will probably pick one when I get around to making the title screen.

    Haha, no problem! You might run into issues with the palettes if the second frame or back sprite has colors that aren't in the front sprite. Most of the time A-series will handle those, but other times it'll get confused and fill the extra colors in with another color from the front sprite. You can fix it with the palette section of the tool, but the errors can be hard to spot if you've just bulk imported a few hundred sprites. Not sure what would have made the entire sprite yellow, but it's generally a good idea to give imported sprites a quick check before saving them to the ROM so that you don't have to re-import them. Very tedious but worth it if you catch an error!

    My Emerald hack's a QoL/difficulty hack with all Pokemon up to gen VII (will add gen VIII later), lots of features backported from newer games and a few entirely new ones too. There are some minor story additions from ORAS but it's still the same old story for the most part. Getting close to something I can release, so hopefully it lives up to expectations!
    Also sure, request accepted!

    Eh, we're actually doing pretty fine. Schools are being opened formally and attendance is becoming mandatory once more, most of the people seem to respect the quarantine period and... well, it feels like we didn't suffer that much from it compared to other countries like Argentina or Brazil. We're doing fine.

    I mean, that video shows the action of copying an existing event and pasting it on a different map. It'd naturally work and if that's enough to you, I guess you should go ahead.

    Thanks, I'm doing well; hope you and yours are too! I'm actually using the decomp so no tools are required except a sprite editor, but I've done a bit of binary Emerald so I can help with that anyway.

    Wichu's advanced sprite editor can handle both frames; you can see the second frame by changing the frame from 0 to 1 when editing a sprite:

    If you import a sheet that has a second frame, it'll usually handle it automatically (unless there are palette issues). What's going wrong with the animated frame?

    Ah, yes. You can do that by simply writing a script.
    There's scripting tutorials you can check in order to learn how those work.
    I suggest Sierraffinity's and Avara's.

    Well, if what you want is to make a customized Pokémon, the first thing I can think of is to just use one of the routines from the ASM Resource Thread that lets you make customized Pokémon, like this one.

    Binary hacking or decomp hacking?

    Well, Phlayne does not mean anything. Actually, it just sounds pretty much like "Fly", which is how people used to call me when I had another name

    Oh thank you for reminding me about the thread still being closed and the discord link being broken, I've fixed both :) thank you as well for your nice words about my tutorial, I'm really happy it's helped you out!

    God I know this lockdown is just awful isn't it. I hope you and your family and friends are keeping well and staying safe too xx
