With each generation of Pokemon games comes an
even greater challenge of capturing each and
every pokemon. Being the OCD type and having
to legitly 100% complete every fun game I come
across I had to put Pokemon down on the second
generation as it became obvious that this was a
near impossible task for, at the time, a young
kid living in the country.
I have played through at least one game from
each generation just to see the improvements and
while there are many, there are none that do what I
want to do. That is, a game in which I can capture
them all. Less than a week ago I had the itch to
return to my favorite from the series Pokemon Red
Version. I had heard of hacks and even found one
of Pokemon White where you can capture all of them
from all generations. Neat! But Red is my
favorite and no matter how much I searched I
couldn't find a generation one red/blue/yellow
hack that had access to capture all 151 Pokemon.
Thus I looked into how I could do so myself.
Despite the lack of well developed tools like
those used for FR/LG there was just enough
information scattered around the web for me to pull
it together and create this rather simple hack.
In the end I wound up changing the game enough
to where you could potentially acquire as many of
each type of pokemon you desired. Obviously
some are much rarer than others but they are all
there. Played it and completed it myself for sure.
Now there is a good chance a rom hack like this
already exists but either way I had lots of fun.
I hope you enjoy playing this hack as much as me!

If this has been done before then all is not lost.
I had fun learning and playing.
Also if any knowledgeable person would know
how to get Pokemon to evolve after trading
to an in game NPC it would be greatly
appreciated. I had a one time success with
the Route 11 trader and I'm not sure why.
I traded my Graveler for his Graveler and mine
successfully evolved into Golem. However,
I was not able to recreate this trade evolution
with any other pokemon or trainers or even
recreate the Golem incident in a New Game.
hmm.... able to get multiples of every single pokemon? nice idea, but that sort of destroys the rarity of legendary pokemon. and unknown dungeon? isnt that the one where usually all the pokegods are?
Multiples of all yes. Unknown Dungeon consists of the highest available Pokemon in the wild plus Mewtwo. The whole area isn't even available until after defeating the Elite 4. That is the reason the legendaries are placed there. The birds are extremely rare and just as difficult to catch as usual. I found it more intense than their normally scripted first encounters. Normally you can save and retry often without much grief. Here you get a little more pressure knowing if you encounter one, it could be many more random encounters before you see another. Especially if you want a second Mewtwo. I had captured 8 Moltres with many more failures than that before I found one randomly encountered Mewtwo.
Once I become more experienced I plan on coming back and improving the system. I don't know when that'd be though.
