      I appreciate that this was done. I might have to revisit this game having given up on the post-game of the original.

        Looks great! Is it possible that you can increase the variety of wild Pokemon in the beginning of the game? Like from Route 501 to Gamboge City?

          @Mosmero: There's already decent diversity, I think, but having played the game through four times while playtesting, I kind of get where you're coming from. What did you have in mind exactly?

            Like obtaining Maneko and Embird a lot earlier, since in the original you can get them after the 7th badge, which is pretty late in the game

              I agree with this, plus from what I saw in a youtube Let's Play of this game by a user called ShadyPenguin a few moths ago it would be nice if all or most of the proper official pokemon that recived new fakemon evolutions in Vega are avaliable before post game too.

              Otherwise thank someone for finally doing something like this for Vega! Been really wanting to try out the hack for myself finally but felt the brutal difficulty would be too much for me.

                Main post has been updated. The hack is now more or less complete, every single area is now edited.

                There were also a few bugfixes, and per suggestion there were more Fire, Electric, and Water types added to the earlier routes to spice things up a little bit.

                @Da Man: I can't add those official mons to before postgame, because that would basically require me to do a 386 patch and I'm not doing that, sorry. Already took me too long to finally finish this :P

                That being said, yeah I'm still planning on fixing the broken egg moves. Currently busy with school though, so don't expect it until at least mid-November (if at all).

                Thanks for playing, everyone! Really appreciate it.

                  That's understandable I suppose but still a shame, least you added more pokemon in the wild early game anyway so that's a consolation.

                    Wait i thought the last mission required you to obtain all 386 Pokes before you could even do the mission? So not all pokes are available? Or is that just before the post game?

                    Also what were the most recent changes?

                      Haven't seen any added pokemon in route 501 and 502 so far, gonna assume its the ones coming up where they are.

                      Got my first badge now and just thought of a idea, how about making the TMs infinite use like the later gens if possible? Maybe make the prices of the ones you buy more expensive to make up for it.

                        @jastolze: Yes, last mission requires a complete dex. But it's just like vanilla FireRed, there's only 151 Pokemon available before you enter the Hall of Fame, and the other 235 become available in postgame. So you can catch 'em all and do the final mission.

                        Detailed changelog:
                        - Wilds in Sphere Ruins levels lowered to 59-70 instead of like 65-100 or whatever it was in vanilla.
                        - Asphere lowered to lv 80.
                        - The three trainers' levels were lowered to 70-72.
                        - The final mission's enemy Pokemon are level 90 instead of 100, letting you have a level advantage.
                        - Fixed a bug in Darthatron's Repel script where if you said "no" after a Repel ran out and there was a moving NPC on the screen at the same time, and then you talked to the NPC, the game would softlock. All I did was add a "release" command.
                        - Reverted my Raging Flame custom animation because it softlocked the game if I leveled up on the turn an opponent used it. Weird glitch, didn't want to figure out the cause.
                        - Nerfed Psyburn to 70 accuracy and removed its +SpDef effect.
                        - Nerfed Geo Impact to 80 accuracy
                        - Added Buizel, Elekid, Maneko, and Magnemite to Spirit Mansion and the routes surrounding Russette City. (Sorry if you guys wanted a bit more, but I didn't want to go overboard. This should provide enough elemental diversity until lategame.)

                        @Da Man: There's a bunch of TM shops in this game, along with one with all 50 TMs in the final postgame area. Level-up moves are generally very good too, so don't worry. also i grew up with gen 3 and i'm used to single use tms

                          Vega isn't really that hard, though. Unless you're a casual.

                            Try telling that to the numerous people doing playthroughs of Vega that lose at least the first time to every gym leader before going on. I had to grind like crazy to beat the game. What team did you have that made you feel it was simple?

                              The point of this hack was to make Vega easy enough to be playable by casuals. :)

                                  Mos makes me laugh too often. And that first battle with him in Vanilla Vega, didn't expect that last Pokemon he used that early on.

                                    is it worth playing vega first and then minus?

                                      Where can you catch kawappa?

                                      Cool hack but i think the trainers between first and 2nd gym are weird. the first gym has 12-14 lvl okemon and thet trainers up to road only 9-11 lvl? why?
                                      the 2nd gym is imho in no proportion to the wild trainers surrounding it, thx for the minus version, you are a god and a hero!

                                      i cant play this... how does anyone beat the 2nd gym?

                                        Hello! So, first off, pretty new to the ROM hack game in general, so bare with me. Secondly, I adore everything I've read about Minus' gameplay and Fakemon, but I seem to be running into a pretty major issue. My version continuously crashes after obtaining my starter. I've looked all over online, to no avail. It seems I'm the only one with this problem. Any advice on how to get it to work? I'm using MyBoy! pro on an Android tablet.
                                        Thanks in advance!

                                              Went back through and couldn't find any open links to squirrels. In fact, the only available portals took me to the ROM I already have

                                                Yeah sorry Grizzly, I can't link ROMs here, it's against forum rules. There's definitely a Squirrels ROM around though, keep looking if you haven't found it already. Literally just google "pokemon fire red rom" and it's on the first page pretty sure.

                                                Also Garbuntor if you think the second gym is bad you never saw vanilla Vega's. :L Don't play vanilla unless you want to save scum for every major trainer or spend hours grinding.

                                                Also the second gym is super free if you catch a Mintch and evolve it to Peacoptic. Kawappa's caught by fishing or on any water route

                                                  Playing through Vega was a lot of fun for me, but because of the lack of catchable pokemon before beating the league I never finished it. I always thought it was a shame that they made all this great fakemon and we just get to use few until we finished the main-story. For example: there was just one flying type fakemon you could catch until like the 7th or 8th gym, 1 water type etc. I wish you could make most of them appear by the first time you go through a route to add variety to the game. With so few options there is no reason to play this hack more than once for me. But I do think what you did/are doing is a big step in the right direction.

                                                    I tried to convince him a few times already, wouldn't bother anymore if I were you.
