Announcment (12/28/2019)



Saffron is being rebuilt from the ground up in a format that can be dynamically inserted, making it compatible with the CFRU + any other future developments for GBA hacking, and to fix the underlying issues causing the bugs some of you have encountered.

This means the next version of Saffron will include every Pokemon, form, move, ability, hidden ability, item, etc from every generation along with a handful of new features. Loads of new items, Z-Moves, Dexnav, time based wild encounters, upgraded day/night system, new trainer classes, multi-battles, upgraded fly system, and a LOT more. I'm also taking this opportunity to refine the existing content and locations. In the next update there will be more NPCs to interact with, bigger and more detailed maps, gym puzzles, new locations, altered old locations, new summary screen/trainer card/start menu, updated overworld sprites, etc.

This update will NOT be compatable with old save files, so if you can, hold off on playing until the next version is posted.

This update is very far off, but it will be worth it.


Welcome to the Azira Region





Azira is a dense region in South America that is home to many species of Pokémon while they migrate across the globe. Once every decade, a majority of the migration paths sync up and cause the region's Pokémon population to skyrocket! This event is known as the Great Migration. Trainers, gym leaders, professors, and adventurers come from far and wide to experience this grand event.

Your family is from the Hoenn region, where your brother ventured out to become a Pokémon master! Now it is your turn. You and your mother have moved to Haba island, a small landmass located just off the coast of the mainland. Upon arriving, Professor Oak recruits you to help him with his studies. He believes the migration paths are directly related to the behavior of legendary and mythical Pokémon, and needs your help to collect data for his research on this phenomena.

Explore Azira while you discover the secret to the migration routes, uncover Team Rocket's nefarious plan, and encounter some familiar faces along the way!


Screens











Features



  • Pokémon: The regional Pokédex consists of 287 Pokémon with a decent variety from every generation. All Pokémon have their stats, movesets, cries, evolutions, and sprites updated. The Physical/Special split has been implemented, along with over 100 moves and abilities from later generations. Legendary Pokémon events are spread throughout the game, not just post-game, so that your favorite legendary or mythical Pokémon can accompany you on your journey.

  • New Mechanics: Alongside many small updates (reusable TM's, BW Repel system, facing trainers, Fairy-Type, exp. gain on capture, etc.), new mechanics include a new field move system that does away with HMs entirely, Day/Night, Honey Trees, Berry Plants, Mega Evolutions, and more.

  • Updated Graphics: All graphics have been updated while staying true to the Gen III style. Everything from tiles and animations, to the trainer card, summary screen, world map, battle backgrounds, Pokémon sprites, trainer sprites, overworld sprites, etc.

  • Music: The soundtrack is a blend of music from FR/LG and R/S/E, as well as a few custom tracks.


Pokédex



Spoiler:

*All Pokémon with multiple formes DO have each of their formes available in-game.
**All Pokémon available that have an official Mega Evolution can be Mega Evolved.
*** "?" Icons are generation 8 Pokémon that have not been implemented yet.

I have used and removed so many small features and tiles that I can't keep track of who should even be credited.

If you are listed here and I didn't end up using anything from you, oh well!

If I may ask, forgot to in my og post, do you plan on having post game content besides catching the remaining legendary pokemon since it looks like you have plenty?
Yes. Most of the legendaries will become available at some point in the game so there will be post game content unrelated to catching legendaries.
