    I honestly think you should start with something easier to get a grasp on what romhacking is and how hard and unrealistic your goal is.
    Map editing, yes to a small degree. Place an NPC and add an item, yes. I have not made a new move before.

    You're not wrong.

      If you really want to make a good hack, follow my advices
      1) Try not to make a big game but a better game. 15 regions don't mean a good game. Even if you have World tournament setup, I will say that game will be still boring. So, I say if you want to make multiple regions anyway, make 2 at highest
      2) Since you are a new ROM hacker, try to make a GBA rom hack instead of DS. DS hacking is A WAY LOT HARDER than you can imagine. I know you have got some tutorials but what if you get some trouble following the tutorials. I don't think I have to mention that there aren't
      many Professional DS hackers that you can ask for help.
      3) Make a good story. Your story from the thread actually pretty much.................................................sucks! (sorry for being rude)
      4) Try to learn everything first. I repeat EVERYTHING.

        You fool. You absolute fool. I can't believe you'd go for such a tiny, miniscule goal. What are you, 14? 15? Thinking this'll be a good start to your ROM hacking career? I can't... I can't fathom why you would do this. FIFTEEN REGIONS? I bet you're thinking smugly to yourself, "this is just the right size for a game! I can definitely get a good start!", like every child in this community. Damn... just to stomach this, I need to write out five scripts and seven ASM routines. Bet those 15 regions are reeeeeal original aren't they? Kanto? Johto? Pleeeease. If you were actually original, those 15 regions would be your custom creations, complete with completely new tiles and models.

        Apply yourself. 15 regions is absolutely pathetic, even for a newbie. If you're going to do it, you need to think bigger. 30 regions... no, 50. Why bother if it's just going to be a small scale release, that if it were a movie, would go straight to DVD? And all Pokémon from Gens 1-5? Wow, you really are new. I'm expecting at LEAST 200 new Pokémon (Fakemon for you brainlets) for EACH region. And these regions have to be huge. I'm talking Breath of the Wild huge. Actually, scrap that, have each region be procedurally generated like in Minecraft. Endless worlds... now that would really be an experience, would it?

        Talking about endless possibilities, why not go further? Custom moves... custom abilities, all generated randomly. That's right, I'm talking ****ing Borderlands, kid. Endless possibilities mean endless replay value. Your game will be played to death, literally. Actually, how about it? Let's include custom code that sends subliminal messaging to the brain, telling it to fire up the dopamine receptors. Get your players hooked... so hooked, they won't ever stop playing. But to stop there, oh no. That would be a waste of potential. With that power, you'll have the world in your grasp. You could order millions of people to fight back against their country and no-one would realise. You can be the mastermind in the plan to destroy the world. Your game won't just be a revolution in the world of gaming, it will be a social and political revolution. Got any politicians you want to get rid of? Just send them a copy of Pokémon Stratos and watch them livestream their suicide on national television. Good idea, right?

        Of course, with all that power, you're gonna need something hunky to run it on. I'm sure you can create a console that has terabytes of RAM. Use all the spare RAM to take over satellites in space and we can finally see the ayyliens that NASA have been hiding from us. Even more, we can use that RAM to hack the nuclear codes. Send nukes across the entire world, but it's okay, you won't die. The console can use its built in forcefield (made with l33t ASM technology) to stop all harm from coming to you. All misfortune will be deflected away. A bit like that one Stand in JoJo. You ever read JoJo, PokeQuality? If you have, you'll know what I'm talking about. Let's make Stands real. If you know a bit of C++, it's easy. Then, once we've destroyed the entire world, found ayyliens, and made punchghosts, we can start conquering the entire galaxy. Let's go find Alf. Where is he after all these years? Who knows, probably dead.

        My point is, you're thinking too small. Too in-the-box. If you really want to make a game that can hold up, you'll need to broaden your horizons and think long-term.

                  Here's how you can make 15 regions.

                  Make each map its own region (so Pallet Town map is converted into all of Kanto, or the like). Make it really, reaaaaaally tiny compared to normal regions but large for normal map, and make houses or towns 1 tile big. It'll be like a giant version of the Town Map.

                  The plotline is that your character is a giant. His/her name is Clifford, and they have a Growlithe for a starter. Their goal is to conquer the entire world, or maybe just to become Pokemon Master of all teh regions. Possibly by stomping on it. Their enemy is Team Tiny, who hates all giants.

                  No, srsly, I would play that...

                  or maybe I should make it myself... lol. Just more seriously, you are not a giant, there are just symbolic sized houses.

                    It's an NDS hack...it isn't that much easy to make 15 regions as you think

                      There's no reason they can't hack GBA instead.

                      Besides, what if you make them all 1 TILE IN SIZE???

                      Then you could have 1000 regions!

                      I should totally do that in my next hack. The gameplay will be that the giant sits on it, and crushes each region.

                      No, wait.

                      EACH CONTINENT.

                      Much better.

                              You should consider going into comedy as the person who doesn't laugh at any of the jokes and keeps a completely straight face the entire time no matter how absurd the situation gets, and treats the situation completely seriously, even if the situation is a tornado fart apocalypse.

                              You'd be good at it.

                                It will be very difficult(or even impossible) to fit 15 regions into one hack. You may be better off doing 15 islands in one region instead.

                                  Wow, this sounds really ambitious, but in a good way! It sounds like you're very keen on this idea and I will be looking out for it in the future :). Good luck!
