    Hack Information:
    Official Hack Title (Changed as of 1/3/13): Pokemon DarkJasper Version
    ROM Base: FireRed BPRE
    Creator: shinyabsol1
    Hack Status: Progressing

    Introduction:

    Spoiler:
    Hello PokéCommunity, I am shinyabsol1. I started hacking a couple of years ago, and since then it has been a goal of mine to create a Pokémon hack. I could have slapped something together a long time ago and put it on here, but instead I decided to do a lot of learning first. So I have spent much time over the past few years getting experience in many different areas of Pokémon ROM hacking. There were struggles at times, but also many successes. Now, I am ready to present to you the beginning stages of my hack (which, at the moment, truly conveys only the tip of the iceberg of what I plan to do)!

    Story:

    Spoiler:
    Welcome to Somia: a treacherous yet beautiful land far from all other Pokémon regions. Topical coastline alongside pristine waters and countless isles surround an untamed interior filled with forests that rise up to the regions Heavens mountain range at its center. But don’t let the peaceful façade fool you. The region hides a secret that will thrust you into the midst of doings predicted long ago by the oracles of Somia. A radical dream researching team, known as CYPRUS, threaten the security of mind and body alike as they search for “dream cores”, the power behind our dreams. Should they succeed in their attempt to gain the power of dreams, nobody is safe from darkness and nightmares. But getting the cores is not simple, and not all cores are alike in power…it will take time and daring penetration into dreams in order to claim these prizes.

    What is your role in the fate of the region? Will CYPRUS be able to collect the power of dreams? And just what IS their motive? Find out when you play Pokémon: DarkJasper Version
