    Introduction
    Hello, I'm Neon Hydra. This is my first hack so i would like to see what you guys think.

    Story
    In this game there are two teams one is known as Team Dusk who has found a way to make new Pokémon more powerful than the originals. They are mutating Pokémon to bring out their true potential. As a side effect of the mutations a new Pokémon type is created. This type is Demonic, but in a accident in the facility some of the "Experiments" have escaped. The other is Team Pure, They are trying to eliminate Team Dusk and the easiest way to do that is to destroy their work, but their methods arn't the nicest. You live in the town of Sainar and that is where you start your Journey, but you soon find yourself mixed up in this struggle over power.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

            yay! this thread is back

            ive finished one of the sprites, i just need your "ok" on it
            or i need you to tell me if it needs improving in anyway
            but i have no idea how to send it to ya :3

            if you want i can draw em out for you first, like the game art kinda thing..

            oh n are you gna have demonic versons of a pokemon?
            like for example, a normal pikachu, then a demonic pikachu?

            ps - when you do get the sprites, use a programme called unLZ.gba to import the graphics into the rom

                @AuroraHearts (man i hope i spelled that right) Great to hear you can send the sprite via PM i think. Demonic? Yes i am going to do that sort of thing. I have a friend who has done a few already. I have already used unlz before so hopefully i can use it properly. Can't wait to see the sprite Tell me if you can't send it that way.

                  Erm... isn't the Dark type already sort-of demonic? Houndour and Houndoom are based on demons, as are Nocil, Lacefer and Malidist in my hack.

                    i think what neon hydra is trying to do is to make it a bit like pokemon collosium/XD gale of darkness, but instead of shadow pokemon, its demonic pokemon
                    *maybe demonic pokemon are an even stronger version of dark pokemon? we'll never know unless we play it

                      The organisation of the first post is a bit messy.. The "bugs" section, it's unclear if you actually still need help fixing them. Therefore, I shall attempt.
                      It seems the "bugs" lie in the scripts. The pre-made scripts don't know your new professor is called Flint, so you have to change said scripts.
                      The Unlimited-Paralyz-Heal, that's like a flag problem or something. (I haven't spent long enough scripting yet, so I can't give a definate answer). It's the script, anyway, so examine it.
                      Now, my comments.
                      The maps need work, in my opinion. There's far too much blank space around the player's house there. The foresty/routey one, in the second and third screen, is... Poor, frankly. The trees are randomly placed, as is the grass. "Natural mapping" has turned into an excuse for those who don't want to spend much time mapping, for the majority of people. Look, you could barely take two or three steps without walking in tall grass, which would get old fast.
                      Anyway, the screen beneath those is an edit of route 1, I'm willing to bet. If I'm right, my advice is this...
                      When starting a new map, wipe out the original with the black tile, first. That way, you're not inclined to stick to the guidelines of the original map, making yours unique, and new.
                      The starters work. I know this because I've used those exact Pokemon in a previous hack, but I've reverted to the official type-triangle, so you're safe :D
                      Ok, good luck.

                        The bugs i have listed are fixed for the next version i left them there so people wouldn't name them. I do actually use the blank tecknique but it is still hard to remove the overall feeling. I don't quite understand what you are saying in most cases you can't take any steps without hiting grass.

                                    Hey! If you still need an idea for a gym leader, how about gym leader Iris, a grass type leader? Iris means rainbow in Greece, so I would say her badge would be Rainbow Badge, but Erika stole it :p

                                              I've finished writing the Gym Leaders teams. I included the Pokemon vietazn654 wanted as well, aside from Roselia. I wanted to give the game a more Kanto/Johto feeling rather then Hoenn. Sorry. >: (

                                              - Oh, and I also changed Gym# 7 to a Water based team if that's okay with you. ;

                                                I played more of this. And, why is the hometown so large? I think you should make it smaller. And you need to fix some grammar... And some places in this hack are larger than it needs to be... I could help if you want
