Pokemon Lilac

»Introduction


G'Day and welcome to my project, Pokemon Lilac. This can probably be considered a revamp of my original hack (Shimmering Tempest), except it is of a higher quality and will hopefully be released. It is set at the same time as G/S/C, but in the brand new region of Lowen.

Enjoy the eye-candy and please comment :D

»ROM


Code Base: Pokemon FireRed [BPRE]
Language: English

»Story


It has been a long time coming, but you are now ready to take on a Pokemon adventure across your home region. You're all set to recieve your Pokemon from Professor Oak a larger neighbouring town when your mother informs you that Oak is investigating the nearby Haplon Cave system. Upon your arrival at the caves, a small earthquake shakes the earth around you and a local hiker insists that the fleeing Pokemon demonstrate that it is too dangerous to progress. Once things settle down, you are given the all-clear signal and are allowed to continue to the next town. Inside the cave you come into contact with a determined Professor Oak, spying on a suspicious charcter further into the cave.

The man is no other than a member of the villainous Team Rocket which was thought to have been disbanded three years ago under their leader, Giovanni. Why are Team Rocket snooping around a small cave in Lowen? Why does a shady character continuously follow your every move? Why is your rival so mad at you, despite being friendly for many years beforehand?

The life of a rookie can be a tough one...

»Features


~ The new region of Lowen
~ Fabulous tiles
~ D/P/Pt/HG/SS sprites
~ An engaging storyline
~ New TMs and custom move tutors
~ New evolutions methods to catch 'em all
~ New movesets/ base stats for previously forgettable Pokemon

    Let me guess this is the better remake of Pokemon The Tempest.
    Good to see a hack from you.
    I love the graphic and sprite, hope you finish it.

    No, that is a completely different hack - I'm remaking my only hack that was ever put up here which was called Shimmering Tempest.

    Thanks for the compliments though :D

      Nah, I won't be changing them, apart from one or two which are central to the story.

      The male player is an Indianna Jones look-alike because yes :B

        Hey! I was wondering if you were going to make a new hack or revive the old one. You're an amazing hacker, and I'm already impressed by the graphics specifically!

        P.S. - I'm sorry I accidentally sort of took your hack name a while ago. I was brand new to hacking, and I had no idea that Shimmering Tempest existed. But I did, think it was funny when DuoRyan said:

          Nice graphics, scripts and maps. The HGSS grass is cool, just fix the grass animation, or forever be cursed by this post~

          I love the text box :D

          Think nothing of it - It had been dead for about two months and I wasn't exactly happy with its bugs :)

            The grass animation pallette is but you need to change the shape in tile molester, unless you've already done so (in which case the screenshots say otherwise).

            Glad you love that I love the text box

                Incredible! This looks amazing graphics, mapping, and scripting wise. The OW sprite of the player looks great and the battle background is nice. I'll be waiting for a release.

                Best of luck on this, DrFuji.

                There were no additional tiles that showed movement with this, so I have had to use the default grass 'tufts' when you move as its animation. I actually think it look fine like this as it is graphically similar to the animation of the grass in HGSS anyway.

                Thanks. I know where I want to be up to before I make a release, but I'm nowhere near there at this point D:

                This looks great, graphic-wise, mapping-wise, and scripting-wise. Keep up the good work! (b'-')b

                Oh and I can't help but notice in your 2nd video "oppertunity". I'm guessing that it's supposed to be opportunity. XD;

                  Well, I progressed a little further during the night and started mapping the innards of Frigid Cavern so a small update is in order:

                    BTW, Good luck on this one' I know it's a lot of time and effort but it's all worth it cause many people will recognize you and most importantly, appreciate what you have done!

                    Anyways, more power! keep me informed' :)

                      The tiles certainly are your strong point, as are your maps. If the scripting matches how good the graphics are, then this hack will be brilliant! I love the ice cave, but something is annoying me about that snow patch... Just seems too bright, but that isn't something worth worrying about, as I just need to get used to it. I wish you all the best.

                      EDIT: I'm an idiot. It isn't too bright. Probably just me. Seemed like it because of the dark floor, and then suddenly bright white snow.

                      I don't want to show off too much, so I'm afraid you'll have to be in the dark for now. But I can tell you that I have finished the mapping and scripting of Frigid Cavern and I am now up to the third city :3

                      Thanks very much Banjora. And no, its not just you - I though that it was too bright as well when I looked over it later, so you can be assured that it is now slightly darker and doesn't contrast as much with the blue floor :D

                          Woah. DrFuji! This looks great! I loved the video with Giovanni in it. I do have a question, Is the house next to your starter house (In the video) the lab? Or your rival's house?

                          Good luck! If I could create banners for this one, I would. Unfortunately, I do not have photoshop any longer.D:

                          Again, best of luck, I'll be supporting.

                          Love pretty much everything about this hack; definitely one of, if not the, best hacks currently floating about in Progressing Hacks. I would have one complaint, though:



                          In that screenshot all the mountains are grey; however, the small rock is brown. I don't know, that seems a wee bit inconsistent in my opinion. Either way, good luck Doctor Fujeh.

                            This looks like an amazing hack. If the scripts match up this hack would probably be good enough to be Hack of The Year. Those graphics are brilliant.
