This hack is currently on an indefinite hiatus. If you want to see my most recent ROM hack, Pokémon Gaia, click me.


Pokémon Cobalt

Cobalt is a ROM Hack of Pokémon Firered BPRE in English.

Entei, Raikou and Suicune are part of a trio known as the legendary Beasts. The Beasts all possess items of great power; the Molten Garnet, the Arctic Lapis-Lazuli and the Charged Topaz. If brought together, the items will create an energy with the potential of reshaping continents; flattening mountains; evaporate oceans. Team Aura have set out to capture the Beasts, to harness this energy.

Your brother won the Felith Pokémon League a few years ago. Now it's your turn to have an adventure in the world of Pokémon! After choosing either Treecko, Torchic or Mudkip, your adventure begins! Along the way, you'll investigate the shady Team Aura, venture to the Hoenn region, discover new Pokémon, win badges, go to a virtual world, battle trainers, and, at the end of it all, become a Pokémon Champion! What are you waiting for? Leap into the world of Felith in Pokémon Cobalt!

Features (in Beta 1.4)

  • Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos Pokémon. Be prepared to encounter Pokémon such as Sylveon, Sandile, Riolu and more!
  • Updated mechanics. The Generation 4 physical / special / status split, updated moves and learn sets, the Fairy-type, Generation 4, 5 and 6 moves and more.
  • Hidden Grottoes. These hold rare Pokémon and items!
  • Gold Poké Balls. Try and collect them all for special prizes.
  • Access to Hoenn. Connected via Slateport City, your journey will take you through both Felith and Hoenn!
  • Rock Climb and Climbable Walls. HM05 Rock Climb requires no badge to be used, and allows access to secrets and rewards!

Screenshots











Known bugs and oddities

  • Saving does not work. You must use Save States.
  • Refrain from using Autofire A or any speed up options when taking part in the Berryfall Bridge Juicing Contest.
  • The textbox that says "the caught Pokémon was sent to the Box" does not display.
  • Juices have no sprites yet.
  • Running when dressed in the Team Aura uniform will glitch the sprite.
  • Moves without their new animations simply use Pound's animation.
  • Camouflage is just bugged - it doesn't do what it's supposed to, it hurts the user, and sometimes misses!
  • The Move Relearner's interface shows a Fairy-type icon.
  • Some Pokémon still do not have updated sprites.

Special Thanks and Credits

Tools used


Downloads

  • Cobalt Beta 1.4
    Release Date: 18th February 2014
    Notes: Fixes loads of bugs, introduces the Fairy-type, completely overhauls certain parts of the game (including maps, flags, scripts, the level curve, Hoenn is no longer accessible, etc.). Essentially what 1.0 was to Dark Cobalt, but for 1.3. Four Gyms. Ends at Corona Walk.
    Mirrors: sphericalice.co | sendspace
  • Cobalt Beta 1.0
    Release Date: 2nd August 2013
    Notes: Completely redid Dark Cobalt, with a new name, new maps, rescripted events, and more. Four Gyms. Ends at Ash Hills. Very buggy.
  • Dark Cobalt Beta 1
    Release Date: 7th July 2011
    Notes: This version is very outdated, is no longer supported, and is only up for archival purposes.

I have a question: would people prefer a shorter, closer alpha, or a longer, but further away alpha?

Teaser:
I'll eventually change the Rocket OW for Team Aura OWs

    This all looks good :3
    And to be honest I'd rather wait for an official beta. They'd be more stuff for us to do in the game. :D

    Yay, Dark Cobalt is back :3

    You've always been able to make the generic FR tiles look far better in your game than most others. But can I make a few suggestions? In the eighth screenshot the pond/ lake would look much better if it had greater rounding around it's edges (which you can do by using tiles 1AB and 1AC in a regular tileset). The last screenshot also shows a small ledge being sucked into a mountain - While I can see this as being useable I generally find it preferable to end the ledge is it's regular fashion. Your screenshot are still looking great though and I would have to agree that a beta would be preferable to an alpha.

    I also think Ben is pretty smexy.

    Thanks. I actually have changed that since I took that screenshot. Thanks anyway. And I've fixed the ledge too. Okay, so far beta is winning.



    Will the doors ever close? Will Ben ever find true happiness?
    Find out next time. The same bat-time, the same bat-channel.

    This looks fantastic! I like the way you presented your hack, I also love your storyline, it sounds very interesting. Another thing, will you change the palettes a little? Not a major change though. Urm... and maybe change the hero Ow?

    Anyway, I wish you good luck! I also want a beta, and not an alpha.

    You already know I love this hack,and I'm so glad it's back now.
    The tiles--although the original FR tiles--look really nice with your mapping.
    I think that maybe using the emerald grass would be a good idea though.
    Also, any screens of the fakemon?
    Oh, and release the beta whenever you want. Take your time with it.

    Thanks! I'm not so sure what to change the palettes to, so for now they're going to remain the same. As for the player overworld, I've definitely got plans for that. The same applies for the Gym Leaders, Team Aura, the rivals, etc. etc.

    Thanks again, and I'm probably going to stick with a beta.

    Hey, I guess it's only me who hates my mapping, whatever. I dunno about Emerald grass, for now I'm keeping it as it is. I'm probably going to reveal a few fakemon soon, but I can't right now because I'm a lazy so and so they aren't actually inserted yet. :x

        Aha! That's what was wrong. Thought something looked off. Thanks.

        I've fixed it, but I reuploading means playing through the whole game again, so yeah. It is fixed though. :D

        Thanks to diegoisawesome's awesome research, I've removed the "Previously on your quest" part. It was glitchy anyway. :D

        A video showing some undercover work you do for Cobalt/Cyan about Team Aura...or a fetch quest - take your pick.

        I'm glad to see it back! :3 You always seem to make FR tiles look good. Definitely better than my hack, at least. I'll look forward to a beta. :D

            Thanks. It's not that good if I'm honest - the player hardly has any control except walking up to the guard. :/ Thanks anyway.

            I think I managed to decipher this. Thanks, most people have been saying I make the FR tiles look good, but that's not true because the FR tiles /are/ good. The story really revolves around the Static Fur, Molten Rock and Arctic Shard but I guess you're talking about the Power Sapphires. Thanks anyway. :D

            Some new/unseen screenshots:

            And a video:

                Nah, he'll have quite a few tasks for you in return when you meet him at his lab. After all, unlike most Professors, he has no aides. >:

                  Woaah! D: That's worse then Elm and his one Aide. >:

                  Anyway the firegym looks good.
                  But here is a suggestion.There's water in the bottom floor you could replace it with LAVA :D To give it the fire fym taste :3

                  The updates look really nice! I love how the Professor gives us an energetic Psyduck, and makes us look after it and chasing it around the place. xD

                  I also love the great idea of knocking down a cardboard tree! That's so different to any other hack. :D

                  I hope to see a new feature in the next few updates or so! Good luck!

                  Exactly, you can hardly expect him to look after a Psyduck like that on his own.

                  Thanks. And yeah, lava - you have to walk through that water. It's basically the idea of a hot spa.

                  Thanks!

                  I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve, so I hope you'll be satisfied. :D

                    This hack looks like it's gonna be great, I can't wait for open beta! c:
                    I could do some trainer sprites for the people that need them, I just need references. I'm not exactly the best sprite editor in the world so don't expect something that's super flashy.

                    If I'm honest, I can't wait for the beta either. :D

                    And thanks for the offer! I'll probably do most, but if I need some help, I'll be knockin' at your door. :D

                    Fixed the tile error, and a few new screens of the Gym.
                    (which now only needs the Gym Leader to be scripted!)
