    For me personally, I would have to say ever since I was a kid I enjoyed seeing the Pokemon anime and the fact of feeling as if I was on an adventure. Seeing different things, experiencing a life of untold stories and becoming a master. I would also say playing hacks that people have made. The one that really inspired me was Pokemon Identity. It was something fresh and new, not to mention the story revolving more on the character. Made me want to create a story more exciting and interesting.

    So, what inspired YOU to the dedication of a Pokemon ROM hack creation?

    I think it was just that when I discovered hacks, some of them were just amazing, and of course I really wanted to make my own world full of my ideas too. It really interested me because you have full control over everything. You can do whatever you want.

    Pretty much what chrunch said =) The control over your own world, put your own ideas into reality, do whatever you want and feel good that you accomplished something

      The way to add more beauty to the game.
      I saw many hacks, and one of DestinedJagold's hack were the best.
      It makes me want to add more life to the game and explore further.
      Because of Jagold and his hack, I made a decision to make my own.
      And I've seen how can the hack successfully made when it's finished
      It's so beautiful and exciting to play. Depends on the story and graphics.

        Ever since I started Rom Hacking, Pokemon has been one of those games that I have wanted to make a romhack on. In mid-July, what has inspired me to make a Pokemon hack is Pokemon Snakewood itself, as well as a certain creepypasta and hearing some music from different games (which I hope to insert into the game using Sappy).

          Well, I actually had made the idea when I was much younger, but thought there was no way to do it. And now there is!

            I was playing LeafGreen for the billionth time, when it occurred to me that I wanted a whole new story, one that I could create. When I tried to make the hack, since I was extremely inexperienced, I didn't get very far and gave up. One year later, I had a dream that I was playing my own FireRed hack. That's when I started it up again.

            I would have to say Shiny Gold. After seeing how awesome a romhack could be I decided to give it a try myself. I didn't go out and start making my own on the get go, I paired up with another couple of n00bs at the time, Druyii, Vrai, FrosslassManiac, and 1 or 2 other people, and we tried our best to make a ROMhack. Obviously, as most ROMhacks go, we never even got the hack into alpha. We had so many cool ideas too. I eventually came up with idea after idea and eventually got one or 2 that I stuck with and still to this day I want to finish. I've come back to give DS hacking a try so I can eventually get my very own hack out there and eventually completed.

              Well I wanted to make my own Pokémon game so I ended up browsing the internet and found Mewthree9000's Chaos Black. I later found Serg!o's Naranja and that's what made me eventually find PC, PHO, and Linkandzelda, been working behind-the-scenes for years now.

                I used to be the same. Incidentally, I found shiny gold by searching pokémon gold shiny gameshark code, and found a video of a youtube using the walk-through-walls code trying to find what zel didn't release. I thought, "Gee Whiz, this looks way better than gold!", and I dropped my search for the elusive shiny pokémon code and played it until I beat it. Then the rest is history. (See above)

                  I've just started for the sole reason that I am getting sick of both the repetitive nature of it all and the aiming it at children. I want nitty gritty stuff. So I'm aiming to bring a bit of that in. Still early days but I've got plans and it's going well so far.

                          I just want better Pokemon, but I might expand... thinking on it... I have other projects, so I don't know if I'll be 100% invested in hacking Pokemon, but I took this on as an enlightenment journey from my previous N64 hacking experiences.

                          I figure I could improve if I learn some basic concepts from Pokemon games, and have fun with it too.

                          Documentation helps, but I have noticed a lot of missing documentation, which is not what I expected... but, I am not surprised (from previous experiences).

                            I always wanted to make games but never really tried to search how to until I discovered Pokémon Rom hacking, Pokémon Roms have a lot of limitations tough... But still, I can make my own game the way I like it and feel it, so yeah! :3
                            But, damn it, it is too much time consuming.... -.-' I guess, that's what wise people call patience... >.>

                                  I enjoyed playing/watching various Pokemon rom hacks, and was impressed by all the hard work people put into them; so, as a thank you to other rom hackers, I decided to also give it a shot myself.

                                  At first I didn't know what hacking was. But when I learned what it was I thought WOW this looks fun! And I saw dozens of hacks and wanted to make my own...

                                      Zel and my ideas, I had an idea to make a hack in 2009 or something similar, "News Building" a location, was forming in the mind... Hehe, attempted using PowerPoint as a tool to make my hack, however, it was the closest I had until 2010, when I downloaded AdvanceMap, and began throwing my town ideas into what my current hack will be based from, sadly, my PC died in 2011, so I had to re-start when I got a laptop, that ended up getting a virus and I had to get a new computer, which I am throwing my ideas into a a similar based hack from my first attempt called "MarioRed".

                                      Most ideas from "MarioRed" have survived to this coming one (I hope), News Building still exists, Mare and Luigi will NOT be playable anymore, Leader Eugene survived, Scar too.
                                      Here's a few details about this hack, Pop-culture will play a major role, it will be more mature, including Religion and Religious themes...
