    Hack of:

    AshGray Beta 4.5.3

    Hi, I've been working on a hack of FireRed for a Pokemon Anime Version of the game that basically follows the same events of the anime. I see that there have been hacks like this already, so I'm not sure how good mine would be in comparison. But I started this because I wanted to make videos of playing Pokemon all the way through with Ash's lineup, to see just how it would go and it snowballed from there.

    I'm going to cover the events from each episode in the Kanto and Orange League series. The story follows the same one as the anime, including events, etc. I've basically hacked up to half way through the Orange Islands. You should expect a new Beta every 25 episodes or so, barring updates for bugs/glitches.

    You are Ash Ketchum. You're about to embark on your Pokémon adventure. Unfortunately, you stayed up all night watching Pokémon matches and woke up late! With all your rivals from Pallet Town (the most annoying being Gary) having taken all the starters available, it looks like you'll just have to go home ... unless you want Pikachu instead.

    You're about to embark on an adventure of 116 events (plus two movie events) that will put you in Ash's shoes, allow you to catch the Pokémon he catches, and make the decisions he makes. How will your journey as Ash Ketchum play out? There's only one way to find out ...

    - Play as Ash Ketchum
    - Have the opportunity to catch all of the Pokémon Ash does
    - Follows the same events as in the Anime Series and be rewarded with special events/items for carrying Ash's team
    - New Tiles
    - New Sprites
    - New Maps
    - New Tools to replace HMs:
    Hatchet replaces HM01 Cut
    Computer Teleport System replaces HM02 Fly
    Raft replaces HM03 Surf
    Pickaxe replaces HM06 Rock Smash
    Climb Kit is added to be used as Rock Climb
    Whirlpuller is added to cross whirlpools

    Unofficial Hack of the Week # 128

    Hack of the Month - September 2010

    • Why doesn't Pikachu follow you like in Yellow? Can you make it follow you?
    While it is on my wish list for things I would like the hack to include, I am not advanced enough in hacking to accomplish it. It requires the use of Assembly (ASM) and creating unique routines. Jambo51 had been working on such a routine. If he gets the chance to finish it and chooses to release the routine to the public (his prerogative) I will of course implement it in my hack. As of this time, though, no such routine exists that has been thoroughly completed, so this feature is currently not possible.
    • How do I beat Sabrina? Kadabra's way too strong!
    Kadabra is somewhat overleveled for a couple of reasons:
    1. Ash gets there early in the anime.
    2. No Pokemon on Ash's team could even come close to beating it.
    It's meant to be a challenge. If you want to beat Sabrina, it's suggest you level up Pikachu (use the Vs. Seeker if need be) so that it can outspeed Kadabra. Thunder Wave it to paralyze it, then have Bulbasaur use leach seed on the next turn. From there, just keep attacking/using potions or revives until it ultimately is knocked out.
    • Why is my screen red when I go outside?
    That is part of the day/night system by Interdpth & ZodiacDaGreat. You are simply playing during evening-ish hours, when the sun would be setting. Play a little bit later or earlier, and the outdoor color scheme will be changed.
    • I beat Misty, where do I go now? The path to Vermilion is blocked.
    If you already headed north and battled AJ and the Giselle at the Tech (recommended), go South and then directly west. There will be a (somewhat) hidden open route that leads to some grass and takes you south to an opening - the Hidden Village. Continue this way to progress.
    • How do I get into Koga's Gym? I don't understand the statue's riddle.
    The intent of the riddle when it says that you must "turn South" is that you must face the back of the statue. The intent of the riddle when it says you must "go back" is that you must hit the Back button while facing the back of the statue. This will open the secret entrance to Koga's mansion.
    • How can I help Jigglypuff?
    After completing the Paras/Parasect event, talk to the old lady in the medicine store. A new item - Berry Juice - will have come in. Buy it and give it to Jigglypuff to soothe its voice.
    • Why won't Charmeleon/Charizard obey me? How can I make it listen?
    It doesn't obey you because it doesn't respect you as a trainer - this was the case in the anime as well. This will continue for the entire game until you complete the "Charizard Chills" event, after which Charizard will obey you once more, except for certain events where Charizard temporarily obeys.
    • How do I complete the Lights, Camera, Quaction! event? The director doesn't like any of my Pokémon!
    There are five condition upgraders in the game. In order for the director to accept one of your Pokemon, you must upgrade its Toughness, Coolness, and Smartness. The upgraders for these three conditions are located in Pewter City, Vermillion City, and Saffron City respectively. Each requires a particular colored shard. Some shards can be found as Hidden Items, and others can be mined using the pickaxe on rocks. If you do not have the appropriate shard, return to some cave (Mt. Moon, for instance) and begin mining until you luck into it. Once you have raised one of your Pokemon's conditions in each category listed, return to the director with that Pokemon in the first slot of your party. Do not raise any other conditions of your Pokémon, or they will not qualify.
    • How do I start the Pokémon League? The guy at the gate says it still hasn't started yet.
    To begin the Pokémon League, you must complete all the events at Mr. Hideaway, including the Giant Onix and Pokémopolis. Afterward, return to Prof. Oak's lab and speak to him. He will tell you that the League is ready to begin. Before entering Victory Road, the Bad to the Bone event will activate. Afterward, you the guard will let you pass into the Pokémon League.

    * Strikethrough indicates the episode is completed
    * √ = Beta-tested, metapod23 approved (for Beta 3.0)
