Masterquest

Welcome to the world of Kanto. A region full of excitement, and adventure. Travel throughout the land, while catching mysterious creatures called Pokmon. To become successful, you will have to battle many trainers who raise these fantastic beasts.

Hello, we are team Masterquest. A few hackers who have collaborated over the years to bring you this new adventure. The Kanto Region is not unknown to the majority of us. However, the game Master Quest brings you a fresh viewpoint of the 20-year-old fan favorite. From the screenshots shown below, you can see Master Quest is filled with new scripts, interactions, dialogue, and trainers who will fight you along the way. As you, the player, partake in this adventure, you might find most of these events are based on the show/anime. And if you made this assumption, you would be correct! The inspiration behind this game came from the anime, but in addition to this-there are some story plot points added for additional excitement. Master Quest also features a decision based mechanism where your actions and choices will have a direct impact on the story that unfolds.

Play alongside Eve Green, Bonnie Amarillo, Alan Rouge, and other individuals as you make your way through the Kanto Region. Battle old rivals, and new heroes alike, as you complete your master quest!

Additional notes: Depending on the progress of the hack, it may also feature more than one region.

tell me is this complete or it has a progression?
Hi, nope not complete yet. This is a beta that will take you until Lavender Town.

Also some other things to note

1. Trainer levels after Viridian City are on par with highest level in your party which gives incentive to raise the team evenly.
2. Gym leaders will always be 4 levels higher than your strongest party member
3. Area north of Route 3 is not passable as the area remains unfinished (will be sure to block it off in the next Beta)

Hope this helps

This game is really interesting. And in a good way. I started playing this not that long ago and I like it so far. And I do like the addition to the good/evil alignment system because something like that could make the story more interesting and it gives us an option to be good or evil. And you also don't see that in a lot of rom hacks. Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Appreciate it!

The moral decisions kick in after Cerulean City. We give the players a bit of time to get used to the game's mechanics. Also FYI gym challenges are optional. We're trying to give an open world experience to the players (with the limited space) to just go on a journey and explore.

looks really interesting. im excited to see what this turns into.
Rom hacks i support: Pokemon Adventure Red Chapter, Pokemon Gaia, Pokemon Firered Rocket Edition, Pokemon Orange, Pokemon Unbound, Pokemon Masterquest, Pokemon Saffron Version, Pokemon Dark energy

Hacks I have beta tested: Pokemon Masterquest, Pokemon Saffron.

beta tester for: Pokemon Saffron version. Pokemon Chroma Version

i decided since my beta testing is slow to just try beta testing 3 rom hacks. as i'm currently doing 2 at the moment i figure i could pick up a 3rd one to beta test. PM me or leave a visitor message and i will more than likely help beta test your Rom hack.

I started playing and found some minor issues:

Pallet Town:

Minor cutoff.


The text glitched (overflowed) here.


*instructions.

Route 1:

This text box shows the "press button" arrow but it either closes or blanks out when you press a button.


*natural.


Tree cutoff.

Viridian City:

*practice.


The Pokémon Center's roof looks slightly weird.


The circled tiles are solid. You can't walk on them.

This looks absolutely gorgeous! Played a bit of it so far and I love it already. I really hope this gets completed. Good luck!
Track Number 2 of my debut Mixtape, Venting Session Vol.1:
What's it like - https://youtu.be/Qxs6shEpHIo
A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

Thanks, that means a lot :)

This has been in the works since 4-5 years ago, off and on. Since a lot of the scripting in the earlier parts of the game (up to Cerulean City) was done in 2013/14 one of the concerns is grammatical and tile errors so please do let us know if you spot anything

Thanks!

very impressive hack, I love the new cites that are around kanto, I was wondering you consider making the new cities like kingdom hearts where there from another show or movie. domino, hyrule, mushroom kingdom, etc etc, like the gym challenges, the pace of the game is really great. you guys thought it through very well. keep it up guys! pikchu early thunderbolt instead of volt tackle?

Thanks! Appreciate it!

The additional cities included are all Anime inclusive cities. Tentatively there maybe 4 in total for Kanto. Other regions are still being planned.

Thunderbolt and Electroball are both moves that Pikachu can learn later in the game.

Additional information:
1. All 151 Kanto Pokemon can be found in the wild (Lengendaries still being worked out)
2. No more trade evolution
3. Seeking views on whether Pokemon used in the museum should be nerfed

Man I love this beta so much!... To list All the things I like about it would take up half a full page!

Eventhough I'm playing this game as a beta tester, it has not taken anything away from the richness of this game at all!!
.... the colorful storylines, the difficulty curves, seeing some of my old poke favorites from 1st gen.. in 3rd gen gaming with their old school battle sprites i missed so much!.. the multiple rivals.. the additional content you can play in it... the nicely done the kanto remapping, makes it so fresh!
..... Even for playing a beta that's rough around the edges, this game is Awesome!

Well just started and I wasn't able to nickname my starter for some reason, I clicked yes and it acted like a clicked no.

Also just a question but will there be a physical Special Split in the future? (If it doesn't already and just not showing like in other hacks) A lot of mons I like to use a useless in gen 3 setting but I don't really mind if you don't plan on putting it in.

Many thanks! Look forward to your thoughts on the rest of the Beta!

Noticed that error too. With the nickname. Working on addressing it. Thanks!

As for not, no physical and special split planned. However, this may change. Will see if implementing a patch messes with other parts of the rom hack.

I played a bit through it but I have to say I'll wait for next beta cause honestly the encounters on the routes between Pallet Town and the first gym are horrible. Mankey being a rare encounter does not help either due to my Pokemon OCD wanting good nature for it. (And the fact I only knew it was there by nature hunting for a Jolly or Adament Pidgey that took forever to find.)

Adding a Nidoran to the encounters would easily fix it for me (Unless its a really rare like Mankey).

I really like a game where you could be a bad guy but the encounters suck so much and did you change the critical ratio? The wild and trainers get critical hits every other turn.

Hope I don't sound like I'm just hating on your game but this is my honest feedback for now and I do like games like this very much.

No worries, appreciate all comments.

1. Nope, no changes to critical hit ratio.
2. Noted on encounters, will have a look again at Route 1, Viridian Forrest and Route 2 encounters and see if fair representation is given to Pokemon in that route. (I believe Route 2 does feature both Nidoran in the grass)
