*EDIT* Scratch that - just tried it on an new ROM, worked.
All right, nice to see you were able to play!

I enjoyed it. But i preferred the FR/LG tiles to these ones.
Everyone has their own preferences, and yes, the FR/LG tiles are good too. This hack has already gone too far with this tileset, though, so I'm not going to change it.

- Novabell (Ledyba) lv20

But, I'm training because I want Nova, my Ledyba, to evolve.
My problem is that Ledyba evolves at level 18. Each time I level Nova up, the animation starts, then stops practically the moment Nova's sprite turns white. The text I get after this is '...?'
I've tryed to evolve him three times (is why he's level 20) and I've received this failed evolution three times - is this due to something you're doing in the coding of the game, or a glitch?

I wanna point out that Icarus (my Nidorino) evolved fine, so if it's a script glitch, it's like to be within Ledyba itself.

Yeah, it's something I forgot to include... Once I also fix the below error and reupload the new Shining Opal, it should be fixed.

Well that explains alot haha, well hope he fixes it soon, it was a good game.
Well, turns out that it's summer now, and he decided to be all vague and told me to do it myself... I'll try to get it done sometime before the end of summer, possibly on my trip to PA. (riding alone on an airplane, holy crap!)

I forgot if I asked you for something, but I have a few things in mind for you.

The graphics are great, the towns are nice, the wild pokemon you get in the routes... some are nice and some are quite weird (i caught a Pineco without using headbutt on a tree?) but still quite awesome. Im really looking forward to this hack and once i find out the problem with my recorder i will Let's Play it! Keep up the awesome work! Because you ARE awesome Diego!
Thanks for the post. I'm glad you liked it!
Some things are still strange because I'm not putting in as much effort into this hack as I'd like, instead focusing my efforts on CrystalDust. I'll try to fix some things, but I can only fix what you guys tell me about.

You may want to update the main page, the game looks much better in the version I played! Yeah, it's on my long list of things to do for my website..

My one complaint is the poor quality of some of the sprites but thats a tiny quibble. Keep making this, please! They're still pretty decent compared to when I try spriting... Yech. And don't worry, I will finish this. Someday...
Responses above in bold.

All right, so I have a very important question to ask:
Should Mikachu's name be changed, and if so, to what?
The only reason Mikachu was chosen was because of other hacks having Pikamew and Mewkachu and whatnot, and I wanted to be (somewhat) original... But those hacks are dead now, so I might be willing to change the name if someone can make a good one.
