Storyline


Nothing is pure in this world. Each of us have a darker side locked away in our soul. Only one thing known to man is pure - the legendary Pokémon Suicune, one of the three legendary dogs. Born to this world with Entei and Raikou, Suicune has watched over the world since its creation, keeping the world's harmony in balance. When mankind became corrupt, Suicune's power purified their hearts. When powerful Pokémon tried to seize control of civilization, Suicune defeated them and locked them in hidden prisons for the rest of eternity.

Only a few humans have ever laid eyes on Suicune. Only one person has ever touched it. It's beauty and radiance has driven the weak power hungry and insane. Legend has it that Suicune can turn fatal, filthy water into pure, drinkable water. If it is captured, Suicune's power will turn its captors into gods. For the past few centuries, Suicune has been dormant along with Entei and Raikou because there has been little corruption in the world, until now...

Our story begins with a young child. They wake up and walk downstairs to find their father ecstatic about something. Their father, a world renouned professor on the three legendary dogs, believes he has finally located Suicune after 20 years of research. He gives his child an errand as he leaves to find Suicune. The child then leaves to run the errand, unaware that they are about to be pulled into the adventure of a lifetime...

    This seems like a good game, i think ill play it , btw i like the story for this hack, hope you can finish it.

    ps: i think the game would be better if you change the hero OW (just my opinion). im not forcing you to do it but i think it might be better.

      Looks good. I also find the storyline to be intriguing, and will definitely play this hack when you've got it all finished and polished up.

      Good luck!

      Ah, a new hack,eh?
      Well this might turn out to be a good hack, just don't quit the hack. And if you need help, like mapping and such, I'm a pretty good mapper.

      The rom is Fire Red version 1.0.
      You should be able to patch fine if you have the right rom. You just won't be able to open it in hacking tools (apart from VBA) when patched properly.

      Now time for some updates...

      Pokécenter and Pokémart




      So basically, I ripped these from the old old Infernal Legend. :3

        Actually it do'sent look bad, you might want to replace the fire red grass tiles with the Emrald grass tiles.

          My biggest qualm with this is the amount of consecutive battles after going through Rainbow Forest. I blacked out twice because I ran out of moves on my Marshtomp, Teddiursa, & Spearow. But it's pretty good so far, keep up the work.

          Yeah, I know. It also means Pokémon level up too quickly. So I've reduced the amount of trainers in all maps. Most maps had an average of 6 trainers; now they have an average of 4. :3

            Well, everything here is looking neat as ever. Palettes are in a good blend, your scripts are a go-go, and I'm excited to see progress on your last event. Good luck with it, because luck is all you might just lack!

            Eastward Cave Event




            Just thought I'd show a little event in Eastward cave. Seems like you need rock smash but you won't have got the HM or the badge yet.

            Maybe the hiker could help... if you do something for him first. :3

            No fear, Harry is here. I feel like commenting longer on this but I have chicken wings waiting and they're making me go omnomnomnom while looking at this hack. Pretty work though, I'm wondering why the map data is incomplete as it's terribly easy to fix.

            Because I made it incomplete on purpose. I fill it up as progress goes along. :3

            Petalcrest Plains




            Just thought I'd show screens of my first route map in almost six months. ;O
            EDIT: Fixed the tree shading errors in the first screen.

            Okay, progress has been going slow because of all the homework I've been given. However, I've been able to map a new route. :3

            Teal Path





            So this is just another everyday path. :3
            It's congested with trainers, but most battles are optional.
            There's a healing house here so you won't have to backtrack through Eastward Cave if you need to heal. :3

            Okay, so yesterday, I decided to try some music hacking, and I found I could get Sappy to work. So I decided to rip some music I like and put it into Stardrop. :3

            New Music




            Just ignore the locations I'm in; this was an on the spot music test.
            First theme - Verdanturf Town from Emerald.
            Second theme - The hidden Crystal Pokécenter theme in Emerald.
            Third theme - Pokémarts in Emerald.
            Fourth theme - Lavaridge town in Emerald.

            I will definitely be using these themes, but I'm not sure if I'll insert anymore music. I hope you like them. :3

            Nice selection of music, Haseeb, but the cave entrance has a tile error (it needs a layer of mountain above the entrance). I'll have to get myself to play the Alpha soon, btw. :D

            you need to map for me ;o;

            Hey, great job! I wish Sappy would work on my laptop.
            Anyway, good luck with the hack! :D

              I discovered an error in the script. Upon defeating this Rocket grunt and talking to him again, his dialogue just goes off the screen...



              Other than that, though, I really like this hack. Interesting how despite being a FireRed hack, you're using mostly Hoenn Pokemon.

              you need to map for me ;o;
              Is that really a tile error?
              I'm sure there are maps which have caves done like that. Or maybe I'm wrong.
              I made you a map. You just didn't have the awesomeness to use it. :3

              Anyway, good luck with the hack! :D
              Thanks. :3

              Other than that, though, I really like this hack. Interesting how despite being a FireRed hack, you're using mostly Hoenn Pokemon.
              Thanks for that.
              And yeah, I use mostly Hoenn Pokémon because I'm not that fond of Kanto Pokémon anymore, and I hate the Johto Pokémon's movesets. :3


              Azure Road




              So this is the final map you go through to get to the next town where there's a rocket event. :3
              It's a fairly small map, but there's a sidequest here which will reward you handsomely. :3

              Seriously, this is one of the best hacks over here.
              I absolutely love the graphics. Mapping looks really great and the tiles you used are simply beautiful.
              Using the underestimated Hoenn Pokemon is a great idea, too.

                I found an extremely minor mapping error.



                The two grass tiles Leaf is facing are unwalkable, despite having grass. Might want to check that out.

                Thanks, fixed. :3

                Oh, BTW, for all obsessive GSC fans, I've added a little sidequest which has an event similar to the dancing clefairies at mount moon. And just like GSC, this clefairy will only appear at certain times of the day too.

                New Music


                Just ignore the locations I'm in; this was an on the spot music test.
                First theme - Verdanturf Town from Emerald.
                Second theme - The hidden Crystal Pokécenter theme in Emerald.
                Third theme - Pokémarts in Emerald.
                Fourth theme - Lavaridge town in Emerald.

                I will definitely be using these themes, but I'm not sure if I'll insert anymore music. I hope you like them. :3
                It sounds like you need to do some voicegroup editing. Some of the instruments in the third & fourth themes sound a little odd.
