    There are many many things that could be improved about this hack so far. However, I think it has an original, unique story. It was interesting how you switched the characters around in the school, and I like battling the teacher instead of the rival. Also, the new tiles everywhere was a breath of fresh air.

    Here's what I think needs to change/be improved:
    • There are too many places where the text is too long, so it glitches the textbox.
    • The level of difficulty is much too high!! I struggled going north through the grass because the wild Pokemon were simply too high-leveled. Same goes for the Gyms and their trainers. I mean, a level 17 Lapras in the first Gym is borderline impossible without save-stating. The Pokemon on routes is also unbalanced. I can catch a Muk, Gloom, and Ditto before I even get 2 badges.
    • The Mart in the first town sells HM01 for $0 (why?). Also, it sells Pokedexes and Town Maps which is just strange, especially since you receive these items earlier in the game.
    • The area where you get the Secret Key was very easy, and extremely small.
    • There is a lot of unchanged text with NPC's which is a major turn-off.

    Good luck with this hack! Have fun with it
    - Fixed most text errors for next beta.
    - Pokemon encounter levels are now lower at the begining of the game.
    - The mart seems to be an error, I'll look into it.
    - The secret key area will be extended in the next beta (if you can be bothered to go back there )
