    Thanks for the quick response! I'm looking forward to the fix.
    BTW, do you plan on editing trainers/boss fights, or increasing the difficulty of the game?

      No, I want this to feel like an enhanced vanilla, not a difficulty increase. After all a lot of the things I have have added make things easier more than anything. I might end up changing rematches with trainers but beyond that it's not in the works. And as for the quick response, I really care about this so I spend a lot of my off time perusing this post seeing if there are new comments and whatnot lol

          SO a quick bugfix today, I have removed the anti-catching script (which was used to prevent players from catching pokemon in the EV training area, so I guess we're on the honor system now!) due to bugs.
          Also, I have found a new de-capitalization patch (thanks to Le pug) please let me know if there are still words that are capitalized!

            https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=285094

            A couple things I wanted to say...

            - Not a complete dealbreaker but as some have pointed out, there are a few capitalization issues in some parts. For example, in the balls section in the bag, most of the balls are oddly capitalized like GREAT Ball, ULTRA Ball, MASTER Ball etc (oddly Poke Ball is the only ball that was unaffected). Additionally on Route 104 (Petalburg Woods exit, near the flower shop), there's a sign that mentions "TrainerS"

            -Personally, I'm a little wary about adding post-Gen III moves and abilities into this hack, I feel that adding moves and abilities from the later gens would distill the spirit of the original Pokemon Emerald. Plus, I feel that adding moves and abilities that didn't exist in Emerald could create some odd bugs.

            Just my two cents.

            But other than that, I like where this hack is going!

            Keep up the good work!
            Thanks! I am glad you like it! If I can figure out the new gen moves and abilities, I will most likely keep it as a separate patch so people can play it how they want. I have been asked to make a patch for the vanilla movesets since I added most of the FR/LG additions (I skipped dunsparce because who cares lol) but that one I think I can leave as is since in my mind its purely positive.
            Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to leave a comment, hope you keep enjoying Emerald Final! (A name I am thinking of changing lol)

            My rebuttal to people being against adding in moves that're from gen 4 onwards is that a lot of Pokemon don't have a varied enough moveset to be helped from the PSS. Many pokemon obviously become very useful such as Crawdaunt and Sharpedo however pokemon like Banette are pretty much crippled by it.. I am all for adding in new moves so long as every Pokemon is looked at and have their movesets are adjusted to make them more useful.

              Pretty much 100% agree with you. I just need to decide how far to go with it, currently I am thinking 4th MAYBE 5th gen moves

              If you have no current plans to add Fairy typing. Gen 4 Pretty much gives most Gen 3 pokemon a really decent coverage. If you expand on the TM list. So like i mentioned before pokemon like Banette can atleast get shadow Claw. Then you're pretty much set to just polish up Pokemon's movesets and then potentially add in an option to teach them moves via the Move Tutor in Fallarbor Town.

              Edit: After doing a quick check. I noticed that AncientPower is the only special based rock move before Gen 5. So I would probably agree with you on going with Gen 5 moves.

                I'm tempted to look into adding cross gen evos, like probopass or dusknoir. If I add sylveon then I'll have to add fairy types, but short of that, 5th gen moves will suffice

                Gen 4 Evo's are one of those things where I can take em or leave em. It's totally down to you in that regard. Same thing with Fairy typing. Yeah it adds another dynamic to things but it's not entirely necessary. The only 2 things that are usually not present in these Gen 3 "updated" hacks are new moves and newer items. I feel like they're 2 things that are less common than I'd of expected given how good and how competent hackers are. I suppose the end result is how far you're willing to let the hack go from the original game.

                  If the new moves, abilities, and items end up being within my skill level, I'll do my best to get them done. I'd like to see the game have new evos because they're awesome but that's about as far from the original game I think I'll take it, there are already plenty of overhaul level hacks out there, I'll stick with the enhanced vanilla feel:-)

                      The latest version available has the original Hoenn starters as default, with optional patches to allow for the Jhoto or Kanto starters

                        Hey Dearman4, any plans to add in updated breeding mechanics, i.e. destiny knot, oval charm, etc?

                        If not, maybe a hyper trainer to perfect IVs, like sigma emerald has?

                        Currently it's still pretty random as to how IVs are assigned - you pretty much have to get lucky or breed 1000 eggs.

                        Amazing hack though, I love how you kept the old sprites, super nostalgic.

                          I'm glad you like it, I tried my best to make this the ultimate Emerald experience :)
                          Currently, adding in fourth gen moves/pokemon/mechanics are beyond my skill level.
                          I have been trying to get an IV perfecter in but been having some troubles, my current plan is to make six NPCs that will charge an exorbitant amount to perfect one specific stat's IV, but the coding is giving me some issues, and I'm not sure where to put them. Right now I'm thinking of clearing out an otherwise useless building in the Battle Frontier and filling it with these NPCs but I might also want to put them in different locations for thematic purposes. Though what I've been trying to get right lately is the non-standard Emerald legendaries like Mewtwo or Suicune, they are spawning in the wild at the moment and I don't like it, so that's my primary concern as of now. Thanks for the feedback though, its always appreciated!

                              There's a README included, (taken from said readme) 65 Alakazam Evolve Kadabra (40)
                              it has every one of the 365 pokemon's locations and evolution methods

                                  Absolutely! You can patch it on your computer and transfer it over or (if you're using the My Boy! app) long press the ROM and then tap "Patch Game" and it will automatically patch an .ips file BUT it must have the SAME NAME as the ROM. So just rename whichever .ips file you want to use to have the exact name as your ROM (though leaving the .gba and .ips extensions as is of course). That should patch it and it should work just fine :)

                                      Hi! Just wanted to say how wonderful this idea is! I'm already playing the hack and enjoying it like a kid, but I have two questions:

                                      I've used the Day and Night in battles patch, and I've reached Petalburg Woods, but I've changed my mind and decided I just want the D/N transition only in the game and not in battles. If I apply the patch for it to my current rom, will I be able to use my current .sav file? If not, how can I?

                                      The second question is how can I change in-game time. Thank you very much!

                                        What I would do is to re-patch a clean copy of the Emerald ROM just to be safe, as long as the .sav file has the same name as the ROM file, it should load just fine.

                                        Changing the in-game time as noted in the Features List is done at Shoal Cave, I put it in the ROM really for only the purpose of making both of the tides easier to access. When you get to Shoal Cave you will see a clock next to the entrance, trust me you can't miss it!

                                          Do you allow people to use it as a rombase?

                                            I'm not entirely sure what is considered a ROMbase tbh, if you mean you want to use it as a starting point for your own hack? Be my guest, just make sure you credit me :)

                                            Though its still in need of some work, my main goal right now is to rebuild it from scratch, too many things need to be cleaned up code-wise (mainly shopkeepers because I didn't repoint their scripts, I just added to them which is not a good idea) plus a few changes I've been toying around with.

                                            Though as I said you are welcome to use it :)

                                              Thank you very much! I've decided to use an old save file I had from the original Pokémon Emerald, where I already have some gold symbols from the Battle Frontier. Will it cause any problems?

                                              Besides, I don't really understand where Dratini can be found, what do you mean with the "small antichamber above the waterfall"? Could you please elaborate?
