    There are plenty of guides pinned in the Discord server now! You should head on over and check it out!

    Ahh yes, Milly's incredible team. I hadn't figured out the Godzilla references until you mentioned it! I liked Rodan and Zilla, sweet designs, but I won't mind all 4. I don't think they are Orangean but perhaps simply new ancient Pokemon, maybe half Mythical half Legendary.
    Hey, who's Milly by the way? Zilla Bonus chapter was supposed to introduce 4 monsters from Godzilla Monsterverse as pokes. Variants of Tyranitar, Volcarona and Aerodactyl were chosen as Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan respectively. I forgot which one is supposed to act as Ghidorah. Lunos shared a repository for all the additional pokemons that are supposed to be added but with designs and stats, but now I have forgotten where its link is.

    Well if mainstream is all that they've been exposed to all along, with no other alternatives, then it shouldn't be a surprise that they are more likely to just go with what they get. That's why people helping each other get informed is so important now because plenty of information, different opinions, views, sources and so on gets shared around.
    Couldn't agree more! Instead of relying solely on the MSM for the know-how, people should get in touch with each other more, talk more with each other more and trust each other more rather than going at each other's throat. There will always be differences but there might be some reasons for unity and harmony as well if we strive to find them.

    I wonder if you are going to get any help from random players. There is a guy with the username "Golche" who might be of some help I assume. There might be others, but I'm not that regular on PC, so I don't know them all.

    Hey, I'm taking a 10 days break as well. Wish you happy holidays and a prosperous new year in advance!

    But now we'll probably never know.
    Exactly! I was itching to get my hands on the orangean variant of Tyranitar that was about to be introduced through Zilla Bonus Chapter. I mean, seriously, how wonderful that would have been; 4 more awesome pokes from the Godzilla Monsterverse being a part of the already exploding roster of orangean pokes. Now it's all over. Maybe he'll introduce these mons in vol. II.

    And you can bet that plenty of people will gladly comply, doesn't matter what health risks are associated with the rushed vaccines.
    Seriously, nowadays people fall for any kind of propaganda! No fact checks, enquiry, personal research etc. Critical thinking is hard, and it takes time and effort, so people usually go for whatever emotional muk they are being fed to through news channels and electronic media. Most of them just comply with the narrative they are being fed and never question it, forget about challenging it.

    Hey, you were talking about writing a walkthrough for Unbound. Have you started working on it?

    Unfortunately no exotic mons, they use Kanto Pokemon
    I think I'll pass master trainers! Searching for them one by one is tad troublesome and there are no incentives to do so anyway.

    One of the local banks shifted from cash to cashless in October as a means to limit the spread of COVID, it's so ridiculous. But I imagine that some other major banks might follow and then people will be screwed because electronic money is not reliable and as convenient as people think it is, certainly not here where systems are prone to break downs or being congested. What makes things worse is people are willing going along with this, have been doing so as the year has gone by. You say a decade, which is interesting because 2030 seems to be the big year that we keep hearing about. Why 2030? What about now, today?? Like you I also check multiple sources for news, outside Zim sadly since there's not much to rely on locally. There are independent papers, but they are owned by the same media group so much independence is that exactly, haha? South Africa, just next door to Zim, is experiencing a second wave, and I am a little worried that it could spill over into Zim. They started lockdowns and stuff in March and April, then just like clockwork Zim followed...so I'm really hoping SA sorts things out. One wave was enough, the damage has been done on the social and economic sides (on top the inflation issue which we've had since 2018). The news hasn't covered anything about natural remedies yet and I doubt they'd have a proper figure for the recovery rate so at least for your country you've got some facts. I guess what's left is for plenty of people to get informed and help each other get through this because govts aren't going to help.
    We are seeing bank mergers here in India, no case of cashless banks as of now, but they always advise people to go cashless as much as possible. Maybe they are preparing us for the dreadful event. What I personally think is that the more things go cashless or electronic the more we lose autonomy and control as public. It will be very easy to control us that way! If anyone goes against the Government or has views other than that of what the MSM portrays, just freeze his bank account and its over for him. He's screwed. We have just recovered from the third wave, and it's time for vaccines to do the rounds in the MSM, when the recovery rate is more than 95%. It is lethal for those who have their immune compromised or so I have heard. Also, I'm not sure, but I am hearing that they have made vaccination mandatory in the U.K., it is not good right? They should ask us about our consent in this matter, shouldn't they?

    Hi, sorry for the super late reply, I don't check Pokecommunity very often!
    Marts should be selling Paralyz Heals after Darlene so I'm not sure why you've been unable to find them.
    The Vampire Birthsign burn issue, whilst not a bug or anything of the sort, has proven to be rather annoying and taking damage from it will be removed in future updates so rest assured.
    The level caps were added so that you can't just walk up to a 25 gym with level 40s and just wipe it. I think it's just a lot less fun that way.
    Fly will be available in the next patch.

    Maybe they each learn a unique move later on that the other one doesn't. Then again I guess they only differ in looks and design, everything else is the same. Regular Metagross is better for being part Steel so I don't know if you're going to hang onto O. Metagross for much longer.
    They just differ in their looks. I prefer the Fake Gyarados over O. Gyarados because design-wise, the former is neat and to be honest, I find O. Gyarados pretty ugly. I have already dumped O. Metang for good, Rock/Psychic is a junk typing even for a pseudo legendary.

    They are special Trainers who battle using one specific Pokemon which will be Lv255 and you can only battle them if you just have that same Pokemon in your party.
    That's a bit troublesome for me. I hate lickylic and I am certainly not going to capture it, no Sir. So, I guess, this event doesn't suits me. However, if the trainers are having exotic mons then its a totally different story; I'll see if I can cherry-pick.

    Some of the Delta Pokemon evolve by trading e.g D. Golem, D. Scizor, D. Magmortar, D. Electivire etc, how do you get them instead? And by trading did you do it in-game at that trade centre or you have friends who also had the game and you traded by linking online?
    First things first, D. Golem is a trash mon, don't waste your time on it (My opinion, no offences please!). There are much better mons available in-game and of them can be obtained early, e.g. D. Ralts, even though it's a glass cannon, it rocks. D. Scyther is good and it's much better than D. Scizor if you use it with Eviolite. However, there is a way to evolve D. Scyther. Later in the game when you cross the sewers and reach the black market, there is an NPC which is called Witchdoctor. This NPC can evolve you D. Scyther if it is holding a Metal Coat. Regarding D. Magmortar and D.Electivire, you can put your request on the p-insurgence forum. Someone might trade it with you. I got Delta Dratini, Delta Serperior with HA and many more mons this way. But first, you have to make an account on the forum.

    Are there credible independent news outlets over there that can give you proper news? The vaccine is also a dubious subject because how can one be rushed out so soon and yet there hasn't been one for the other major diseases which have killed far more people than COVID has? Plus, aren't there people who have recovered from COVID using other means so far? Would they also need a vaccine? Questions like that should be asked.
    In my country, there are some alternative news channels but they are considered anti-national and dubious by the so-called nationalists! When it comes to news, I prefer to do my own analysis from multiple sources just to get some real information. Left, Right or Centre; it's all politics and self-interest. Noone care for ordinary and common people. You are absolutely right about vaccines. There is no cure for AIDS or Cancer yet they are in so much hurry to bring out this abomination. In my country, the recovery rate is over 90%. So what's the need for a vaccine anyway. Natural remedies are working in most cases, then there is plasma therapy as well. What is really worrying is that in the guise of COVID, the monetary system is changing from paper money to electronic pretty fast. Lots of small business houses are going down yet the big fishes are getting richer day by day in the pandemic times. I really wonder what is going to happen after a decade, how much the world will change and at what pace!!

    That one is pretty much an almost complete hack, so I think it's better to not to touch it yet. So, I have no plans on doing anything about that at present, sorry.

    Do you have both Fake Gyarados and O. Gyarados or you decided to stick with Fake Gyarados? I liked both so I kept them and nice one on catching O. Dragonite :) Dragon/Fairy type is quite the combo.
    I have Fake Gyarados; O.Gyarados has exact same typing, Water/Dragon. I wonder if there is any major difference between these two. The latter even looks pretty ugly. I had high hopes for the O. Metagross, but it turns out to be Psychic/Rock. I don't know if it will be useful later on.

    Are you going to be taking on the Master Trainers?
    What are Master Trainers? Is this a post game content?

    Speaking of Insurgence, I have to say that I'm not liking that they've got most of their Pokemon evolving the same way as they would in the official games e.g. by trading. Come on, really? I thought one of the highlights of hacks and fan games is to take mechanics like that and do away with them or better yet, to improve or offer better alternatives like having trade evolution Pokemon evolving either by leveling up or by means of a special Stone. And it looks to be a game more suited for people with internet access, hence the trading and such. Otherwise I am impressed by a lot of the Delta Pokemon...though others I don't get why they were switched from their regular types to types which are so far out haha.
    You can complete the whole game without even going online. There are some extra perks like getting exotic mons early game and other stuffs. However, the game is fully accessible offline. Which pokes do you want to evolve by trading? I never used trading for evolution in my couple of playthroughs. Regarding Deltas, the USP of Insurgence. However, you get to catch some Delta very late like, D. Metang and D. Hydreigon and some you can only catch as post game. So, to get your dream team, you have to complete one playthrough, trade your chosen mons to some friend and then again start another playthorugh and get those mons back early. You can also request those mons at the p-insurgence trade centre. Luckily, I got my dream mons through trading.

    As for COVID-19 here in Zim, things haven't gotten past the initial wave here yet. I don't know for sure if a second wave will sweep through but hopefully not because it wouldn't be a surprise. Mentions of a second wave have been in western news but there's always a chance that it has been used just to keep people frightened and obeying the ridiculous rules and regulations that have been put in place e.g. lockdowns and curfews and forced mask-wearing and such. I didn't know you have a third wave to deal with, that's terrible. Is it because you have a larger elderly population that's more vulnerable to the virus? What's the situation there?
    Glad to hear that the situation is in control there. Here in my country, it is horrible. It might be a media hoax as well, I am not sure. But, they are saying that we are facing a third wave, so many infections per day and so on and so forth. I am not very happy with this vaccine propaganda as well. I don't want to take any kind of vaccine.

    You don't have to worry about collecting mushrooms for the Move Tutor. The one available in the game teaches moves for P1000 per move. Pretty neat really, you'll find her on Kinkan Island.
    For the Special Attacker why not just get a good Electric-type? Or you want a non-Electric Pokemon with high Sp ATK which can still learn Thunderbolt?
    I have arrived on kinkan island as of now and updated the moves of my pokemons. This tutor is pretty convenient and is located at the right place as well. Regarding Sp. Attacker, I have captured O. Dragonite at the park and to my surprise, this Dragonite is an Sp. Attacker! I am really pleased with this capture. It even has Aerilate as its ability. So I am teaching it HM Strength as of now, too bad it doesn't have access to Hyper Voice, that would have been awesome! I intend to capture Mrs. Mime as well, she seems a copycat of Gardevoir with the ability Filter. I am impressed with her stats. I just have to check her movepool now. I think I might have to replace Swampert as Fake Gyredos is doing pretty well and exceeding my expectations.

    I'll just try, if people are available then awesome but if not then that's how it is.
    Just saw your post on the Adventures Red thread. So you managed to complete the walkthrough; congratulations! my friend.

    Hmm king of Rom Hacks at the moment? Really? Because of this Exp Pass? I'd say it's definitely up there among great games like the Pokemon Vega series
    and Clover (despite its faults and quirks) but king of the Rom Hacks would be a bit of a stretch haha. Adventure Red has many positives (looks great, features plenty of Pokemon across 2 major regions that are well designed, story-driven, being able to use any HM outside of battles even if your party haven't learned the moves, etc) but one of the major negatives I find in it is the Bonus Chapters. Most of them are just horror-themed filler stories which don't have anything to do with the main story. If they were connected e.g. after completing a Main Chapter, you play through Bonus Chapters that bridge that Main one to the next one and so on, that would've been fantastic. It wouldn't have to be the case for every Main Chapter, just those which might require Bonus content to expand on them. Fortunately in this Exp Pass update there are more Bonus Chapters which are related to the main story than filler so thumbs up for that.
    Well, Exp Pass has not much to do with Adventure Red being the Numero Uno Hack as of now. The number of pages this hack has on the PC thread speaks volumes! It's more than 667 pages I guess. You have elaborated all the pros and cons pretty nicely, I will only add that the hack is pretty well crafted and witty. It will make you smile sometimes and give you creeps at other times. It's based on manga so storywise it's going to be amazing anyway. The dialogues are very well written, though at some places it tad vulgar. I would even say that this hack is not suitable for kids. I have played Gaia, Glazed, Mega Power, Stigma, Resolute, Saiph, Vega Minus etc. They are really good hacks but this one certainly beats them all. At least that's what I think. I really like the Adventures Red's Side Quests. You will either get a fantastic mon or a rare item by playing them, that's fine by me. However, if a side quest complements the hack or adds something more to the story then that would be wonderful as well. Well, Blue and Green's side quests give more detail of their adventures, don't you think? Adventures Red and Insurgence are my benchmarks for Hacks and Fan games respectively.

    To give what a try? Making video walkthroughs? If that's what you mean, I prefer text walkthroughs. Rather than having a whole playlist of episodes I can provide one single Notepad document which is much easier to distribute and can get to many people. I know that video walkthroughs are more popular but another thing is I don't have the equipment and the internet power to be doing video walkthroughs anyway. As long as people are willing to read, I think my walkthroughs will survive :)
    What I really wanted to say was that even if no one is helping you, why don't you dig deeper by yourself, with pun intended. I have never seen any video walkthroughs. I find them tad boring and unhelpful. In the written guide, we can search what we want and move on rather than watching a whole 20 min video for one small query.
    By the way, how is the COVID situation in Zimbabway? Here in India, we are seeing a 3rd wave of COVID and on the brink of another Lockdown. I wonder what the future awaits for us....

    Which seat would be better than the important one that you've been transferred to?
    Well, any seat other than this present one would be better. Office politics, as we all know! No one likes to see you rise.

    What team do you have got for your current Red Chapter play through?
    I started with usual mons like Bulbasaur, Pika, Poliwrath and Fake Feebas. I have now captured Icy Snorlax, Swampert and SwampetX. SwampertX was pretty useful against Mewtwo encounters. I totally owned Mewtwo with it. I am currently going for the Indigo League and after that I intend to replace Venusaur, Poli, Pika and SwampertX. Looking forward to adding Orangean Pigeot to my team. I am also itching to capture Crystal Onix as well. I am currently loving to trample opponents with my Icy Snorlax! Ice type is pretty strong in Adventures Red and Icy Snorlax is literally a beast here! I am also looking for a Special Attacker who has access to Thunderbolt. Fairy/Dragon Dragonite is a mon that I am also looking forward to capture. Thanks for intimating me its location mate! On a similar note, I find mushrooms pretty scarce. It's very troublesome to update the moves of my mons.

    It's why I really didn't want to start from scratch when there's this Exp Pass update added to the hack. So much to get through. I'll make a request in the Red chapter thread after I'm done with the walkthrough, to find out if there are people who would be willing to carry on from where Lunos left off. Updating the guides and maybe providing new ones. But I wonder if it's even worth it now that Aethesode has moved on from Volume 1 to focus on Volume 2.
    I seriously doubt that anybody is going to help you out. I suggest you to move on. YouTube walkthroughs might be more useful than asking for help here. Lunos is an indispensable guy when it comes to Rom Hacking related stuffs. Conversely, it might be a challenge to you as well. Adventures Red is the undisputed king of all Rom Hacks atm and you write Hack walkthroughs; so if you have free time, why don't you give it a shot! 😃
    P.S. Only if you have free time!

    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!

    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.
    https://kotaku.com/fan-made-pokemon-game-is-more-exciting-than-the-real-th-1655072789

    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!
