Grab a pen, a piece of paper and do trial-and-error.
You'll be wasting your time unless you use cheats though, Sabrina has a full Lv255 team.
She, just like the other Kanto Gym Leaders, is meant to be rematched in the endgame of the hack.
Yes, Only Way I got around her was with savescumming and Marin + a team of Protect + leech seed+ whirpool+toxic spammers. Also endeavor works really well when the lvl-hp difference is so massive. Some of the pokes gave 11k exp LMAO, and Mrs. Mime was a fun adition to the comp.

The one that was really a pain was Venomoth as giga drain goes through Marin and you cant poison it either. Also this fight let me see that poison sometimes gets bugged with leech seed and or whirpool, poison stops working and when the alakazam was trying to hypnosis my team, i dont know if it was Dragonair's shed skin that bugged it but suddenly i was in and out of sleep on every pokemon and the team got sleeped even when they weren't attacked by hypnosis. Weird.

Yeah, I don't know how but I ducking messed up my file. I was using the emulator VBA (SCONGVIT). Don't know if that's correct or not. I reached Sabrina, got defeated. Saved my rom hack. Loaded up again and I started at the beginning. Like wtf. I lost all my hours of hard work. @Lunos you also have bonus chapters playlist on YouTube right? I'm fcking done now.

Lunos pls help me man.
Help with what?
I don't know what is "VBA SCONGVIT" exactly, but if it's some kind of experimental build, that's on you. There's nothing I can do about it.
Savefiles don't get deleted automagically, so you must have done something that caused it to happen.

Hello! I have been playing this game since 2012. It’s amazing! Is there a plan to have this work on PokeMMO?
PokeMMO is a closed source multiplayer client, so no.
I'm not 100% sure if Aethestode is an actual programmer or not, but even if it was open source, it would still be out of question probably.

Hello everyone.
I played this hack about over 5 years ago, back then on my pspgo and loved it, but dropped it when I didn't have the time to replay it again with every new update.

today, tried to play this again on my psvita, only to find out that the clock doesn't really work on retroarch.
It does on the standalone mgba, or at least it does so with the rtc patch, but I kinda hate that emulator and it's clunky interface.
So I messed around in retroarch until I found the following way to enable the clock in VBA-Next.

This may or may not work on other older, less supported ports of retroarch running vba-next.

First, you need either one Adventure Red rom where you hex edit the game id from BPRE to AXVE. The ID can be found on Hex Adress AC - AF.
Alternatively, you can just use any normal Pokemon R/S/E rom, but I prefer the edited one for file organization reasons.

Second, you need an unedited Adventure Red rom that patched with endrifts rtc patch.


When opening the Hex-Edited rom in Vitas VBA-Next, it should get stuck on the Bios screen (you know, GAME BOY - Nintendo with the little jingle) I assume, if you don't use a bios file, it'll just get stuck on a black screen, give it a few seconds before you contintue.
Afterwards, when loading the RTC Patched version (it'll get stuck on black screen for a couple of seconds, give it a moment), the clock will then run as it should in-game. Savestates, soft-resetting and sleep mode work fine and won't break the clock.

Note that while you can use any option (load content, load recent, from favorites list) to start the hex-patched rom, you have to go the long way through load content - start directory - whatever folders you sorted your games in - rtc patched rom file, or you'll be stuck with the 12:00:00 clock again.


I guess the reason this works is that vba-next in general does support rtc functionality, but only for games that actually had rtc functionality in the first place, and it enables or disables it based on game id.
While I have no idea why hex-editing the game id makes the game get stuck, I guess it's enough to kick vba into rtc mode. And if you load another game from there, it just stays on and can be used even if it's not supported by the original game (i.e. FireRed)
Loading a game through Load Recent or Favorites unfortunately reloads the whole emulator, so the rtc mode gets wiped.

Since vba-next activates rtc based on some kind of hard coded game id list, there might be a way to compile it so that it activates rtc for pokemon fire red naturally, but I have no idea how all of that works to be honest. It'd certainly be much more of a hassle.

Maybe there's already a more comfortable way that I just couldn't find, if so, please tell me about it. If not, maybe this will help some people trying to get the timed events and such. Unfortunately, I've only been playing for a couple of minutes and have no idea if any of this causes bugs down the line, but I'll report back if I run into any problems.

how do pokemon like chansey and golbat who evolve through friendship evolve in this game
Exact same way they evolve/gain friendship in the rest of the mainline games.

ON: So, I've been having kind of a rough week and my SSD died. Right now I'm using a distribution of Linux in Live Mode.
If y'all notice that I don't post updates for a while, that's the reason.

Hi guys, i just started playing this awesome romhack, and i have a question i defeated snorlax after vermilion city and didn't catch it, is there another way to catch him? ( resetting is not an option, already saved :( )
No. That is the only regular Snorlax obtainable, at least at the moment.
You can still get the Icy Snorlax, but since it's a special Snorlax, it won't appear in any cutscene of the game.

Ok, thx for the reply, so if i use action replay codes or something like that to capture a wild snorlax, will that work on cutscenes? (Just for the sake of using Red's team, i would really love to play with his full team)
As long as what you catch is a regular Snorlax, it'll work, yeah.

I was just wondering how long the beta 15 would be
Unknown. It might just be Kanto and the Orange Archipelago going by how Aethestode called the latest Beta 14 release "Beta 14.5", but it's hard to tell.
