    A PKMN COLOSSEUM REMAKE FOR GBA TO RE-ENJOY THE AMAZING STORYLINE OF POKEMON COLOSSEUM!!!!!

    This is a Hack of Fire red
    And is called "pokemon colosseum:advance"

    storyline:
    Spoiler:
    This main storyline is set in the world of Orre and is based around the “Shadow Pokémon.” These Pokémon to describe it simply have had the doors to their hearts shut off. Your mission is to travel the world of Orre and rescue these shadow Pokémon.
    Whilst travelling the world of Orre you may come across trainers who have shadow Pokémon in their party, when you seem these Pokémon, you can snag them from the trainers. However you can only do this with shadow Pokémon, and no others. Shadow Pokémon are the only Pokémon that you can catch in the entire game with the exception of one, which you actually unlock later in the game.
    To catch a shadow Pokémon you have to first weaken it, the basics from the original Pokémon games is back with that idea. When the Pokémon is weak, you may throw a snag ball at the shadow Pokémon and attempt to capture it. Should you make the shadow Pokémon faint then you may have to battle the trainer again in order to capture it, however some Pokémon when you make them faint you will not have another chance to capture, until a lot later in the game.
    Once you capture a shadow Pokémon you then have the task of unlocking the door to its heart and emotions once again. To unlock the door you have to battle with the Pokémon, every time you battle with a shadow Pokémon, the gauge (which you can see under the Pokémon’s name in battle) will go down slightly. You will notice that when you pass certain points on the gauge (marked on there with a line) you will unlock new attacks for that Pokémon that it had forgotten due to this lock being in place. It is important that you unlock the doors to Pokémon’s hearts because they will not be permitted to enter some tournaments and also sometimes they will not obey so to speak. They only have one attack to start with but if you start to use the moves that they unlock as the door to their heart becomes to weaker, they start to disobey from time to time. Once the door is unlocked you can use any of the attacks they know without them disobeying.
    As you move further through the storyline you will learn that to ‘purify’ a Pokémon you have to weaken the door until the gauge has dropped to nothing and then take it to a sacred place and then the door can be unlocked fully. This allows you to use all of their attacks with no problem, and they will be permitted to enter all of the tournaments. There is another way to unlock the door to a Pokémon’s heart and that is for them to see a Celebi. This is only possible with the help of a key item called a Time Flute, now there are only so many of these within the game, so you should use them wisely.
    Again, as you move further through the storyline you will also see more and more of your favorite Pokémon. You will even see some legendary Pokémon, and are able to catch some of them. The legendaries I won’t say which they are, but they are very quick and very strong so they are a great addition to your team, and you only get one shot at catching them so you need to make sure that you catch them. They are a pain to catch and can get you quite frustrated, however if that happens, you should come off the game for a while and take a break, as I find that I have more success when I’m not obsessed with catching the Pokémon =].
    I think that this storyline is very good, and it kept me interested for hours. It is a very straight forward storyline, but only if you keep up with what is going on and don’t skip the dialogue. If you do, you can become quite stuck for what to do and can take you a while to get back on track. Another thing that may stop you from having the very straight forward storyline is if you don’t purify the shadow Pokémon, as it is very important you do this so you can use all of their abilities without a hitch. The final thing that I can think of that would possibly make you struggle is if you do not catch any of the legendary Pokémon, as these guys are very important in helping you through the game.
    This game is definitely worth the buy just for the storyline as it does keep going for a while, easily over 20 hours if you do it properly and don’t rush. It is quite an interesting one too that can get you hooked a little.
    There are some setbacks however to the storyline. There are no mini games or side quests so to speak of with this storyline. The only thing that you can really do is to take part in the Mt.Battle challenge and complete it. There is a very nice prize available should you complete the challenge. This challenge is a nice legendary Pokémon which is even better than the ones you come across in the storyline. However there are conditions that need to be met. Other than this there are not many side quests you can do, there are couple of things post game you can do which are story lined really, these you find out by email. However the main thing, and most fun thing, is to purify all of the shadow Pokémon (48 to be exact).
    Another setback for the storyline is that you cannot roam so much, on the other GBA games such as Ruby and Sapphire; you get a lot of room to roam, travelling from city to city by foot or by sea. I think that travelling like that is a nice idea and gets the player in that mood to explore and possibly discover new things. However with Pokémon Colosseum you do not get this freedom. You still travel from city to city, however this is in an animation where you are on a bike (which looks quite cool to be honest) and not be foot or by sea. This is a good thing in a way as you get to where you want to go a lot faster than you would in the game boy advance games, and I understand that without the ability to catch Pokémon there is not as much point having the ability to roam about, it is still nice to be allowed that freedom from time to time. So it is a setback depending on how much freedom you like to have.


    all help is welcome even if its like a really small task like making 1 sprite

              Mate, think before you post. This is not everybody's hack, it's yours. You may get a few people to help you, but unless you have experience yourself, don't even bother.

              Also, in theory, it's not a bad idea, but it is actually amazingly complicated. Also, as I have said to a remarkably similar hack, Orre will not look good in 2D.

              Should be locked IMHO.

                  As what bolmedias14 said, this is your hack. You can ask for help, you have to be working on this also. You can't just get others to do everything.

                  Also darkcookie_93, I find nothing wrong with the thread.

                        There's one slight problem with this hack; even the most knowledgable hackers cannot script the snag machine
                        to capture the shadow pokemon

                        there is a way of doing it however,
                        if the trainer's end of battle words were something like
                        'You'll never beat my shadow pokemon!!'
                        and then a wild pokemon event was triggered with the shadow pokemon was triggered
                        but being as you're a beginner i highly doubt that you'll be able to do that
                        to start off, get yourself some tools and roms,
                        make hacks that you say nothing about
                        just make them for practice and learning
                        saying that, i've learned everything whilst making my hack

                              a sprite of Wes with the snag machine is easily doable, but actually stealing a trainers pokemon mid battle isnt which is why i posted the idea above
                              you cant say you didnt see it because i posted 20 mins before you

                              oh and btw, is it just me or...
                              i skimmed a bit of the description and it looks like the colloseum description

                              btw, a feature u might wanna consider- finding out which pokemon weren't in colloseum and replace them with XD pokemon for your shadow pokemon
                              by XD i mean they're shadow pokemon to the point that they change physically like Lugia
                              or my Croconaw here

                                    well, i thought you'd have thought of it but witht he shadow pokemon being a seperate pokemon to its non shadow counterpart (the only way u can have 2 diff sprites in the way u need). This means you can give them different movesets etc. - the etc. including their special abilities: Arena Trap - like a Trapinch has, it basically means you can't escape from it

                                      wow good idea !!!!
                                      ty v much!

                                      although trainers usually would have 1 shadow and lots of normals so how could you link real battles to wild/shadow battles?

                                      the decription is a colosseum description yeah i couldnt bothered to wtrite one myself and theyre basically the same so yeah!

                                        i dont know the scripts but i know the concept
                                        basically
                                        you have the battle, but before telling the script to reload the moving sprites etc for the overworld you have the script to trigger a wild pokemon battle and load moving sprites etc after that

                                              Hey, darkshade!
                                              Wow, that's one big story.
                                              I didn't read it(don't have the patience), but skimmed through and saw "Orre Region"
                                              So, ur making it like XD: Gale of Darkness and Colleseum...
                                              Something like this should go in the games showcase.
                                              To make stuff like that is practically impossible.
                                              Especially the Snag Machine.
                                              In the games showcase, u use RMXGP or whatever they call it, where u start everything from scratch.
                                              It's like ur on game, not a hack.
                                              Maybe u should try that, cause there is a better chance of making something like this in the games showcase.
                                              K?
                                              Well, I wish u TOL, GL!
