    This hack is really old and dusty and I quit working on it a long while ago. It’s not even close to my best work by today’s standards, and if you’re reading this you’re probably either really bored or are interested in me for some reason.
    I’ve redacted the MediaFire links from this post, but if you want to play this hack, click here and grab the archive with the final release.
    The original OP is below in a spoiler for historical reasons, and also reference.
    Pokémon Dragonstone Version


    • Current version: Alpha 1.63
    • Hack creator: AlexTheRose
    • ROM base: Pokémon Ruby Version (EN-US)


    • Hinkage, for much inspiration
    • Alistair and Pokémon Hackers Online, for the wonderful tiles
    • Nintendo, for Pokémon
    • AlexTheRose (me), for pretty much everything else


    In the region of Kohto, north of Kanto, you begin your journey after falling from the skies into the Opalian metropolis. Scouting out refuge with no Pokémon to protect you, you find an old man who gifts you a special abandoned Surskit. Many amazing characters and features appear, both new and old: the Trick Master becomes a millionare off of his Mechadolls, which are now used for virtually anything and everything automated. Teams Magma and Aqua have regrouped and formed an alliance aimed at capturing Rayquaza, the legendary Pokémon of the sky. Creator and programmer Hinkage of Pokémon 2Awesome and Pokémon Hyetology makes an in-game appearance as a major story plot character. All of this is packed into a neat little file called Pokémon Dragonstone Version, which is available here at the PokéCommunity – for free.
