    Actually we can use palletes with 16+ colors because were using Wichu Sprite Editor for you guys to know so Midnightshine its okay to make sprites greater than 16 colors... :D

I actually like the sprite/splice but I don't know if it's a good enough version of Darugis if it's suppose to be a legendary fakemon. But I'll let DarkRisingGirl and Tajaros figure this out but this is my opinion.
    I can't wait to try this game out though! Don't quit this hack!
    Here's the answer for that.. :D

    Beta 2 won't be the final one. Beta 2 will be concluded after you obtain the 8 badges of the first region & have an epic climax-like battle with a particular pokemon's shadow form. After the battle, the beta will end but that is not the end of the game because Darugis isn't defeated yet. So the cast travels to the next region called the "Omni" Region. I orginally planed to spilt it up into 2 hacks. But Tajaros gave me the idea to put it all in 1 hack because it'll be less work & overall just better. In That region, it'll have 8 gyms (The 8th gym leader being the champion of both regions) & tons of more events. It'll feel as if you're playing 2 hacks in 1. That's the goal...
