Hi all.

I have deleted more posts (or am about to), both for and against the removal of the line of dialogue. Please keep your posts on topic of the game itself, rather than personal beliefs, whether you feel people are too sensitive, if a joke means the person is transphobic, etc. This especially applies to untasteful comments made about other members here.

We appreciate the removal and your understanding on it, colonelsalt. I'm leaving your post up, but I will point out that regardless of intent or lack thereof, the dialogue did receive reports, and we have a duty to our members to consider and, if necessary, act on such reports. In this case, regardless of intent of the dialogue, the mods and admins discussed and agreed that the report had merit, and so we made the request to change the one line of dialogue.

On this specifically:
The last two posts were then removed by a moderator on the basis that they were "unrelated to the main post/discussion". Why these two players' opinions were any less valid or "unnecessary" than the post they were replying to is something I'll leave to cleverer people to decipher. But this did have the fortuitous effect of erasing from view that at least some players had a different opinion of the joke, and of discouraging others from discussing it further (lest their point of view should prove equally "unnecessary").
I was not the moderator in question so will not speak too much on their behalf, but I will briefly comment. One post I can acknowledge could have been left up, even if it didn't add much to the recent discussion. The other however disrespected another member, and so has no right to be undeleted.

Lastly, I will state that PC staff collectively do not condone any content that involves transphobia, insulting other members, etc. As the top of our rules page states:
We expect you to be respectful to other members. We do not tolerate bigotry, including, but not exclusive to, racism, homophobia, and transphobia. Do not troll, harass, or attack other members.
If you (a general 'you' reading this post) would like to discuss further, then please send me a PM - but let's not derail the thread. Any further posts about this - now resolved - original report will be deemed off-topic.

Request: Make Zubat and Golbat able to Learn Fly
I know this is marked as completed, but is there a way we can edit the code to make it so that Zubat and Golbat can learn fly?
I've been trying to roleplay using Rocket-like pokemon, and was disappointed to learn that they cannot learn Fly unless you get the pokedex first, which is much later in the story from what I've heard.

Hello!

Zubat and Golbat can't learn fly, yes, but Crobat does and you can evolve it without getting a pokedex (Which we don't get) by raising its, like in vanilla, friendliness. You don't really get a pokedex as far as i am aware. If you want to do it with a vanilla rocket grunt team then you would have to grind lil Zubat to Golbat and then Crobat. Just feed it every EV Item you find like Iron and that shouldn't be that far away once it becomes a golbat.

Have a good day.

So I can't play this on my phone can i?
Hello!

If you patch it correctly and use an emulator I don't see why you would be unable to play it on phone. There are many playing it on phone as far as i am aware.

Have a good day.

Hi!!
I am having a problem and couldn't seem to find any other comment about it. After raiding the shop in viridian, and selling stolen pokemons for the first time in viridian gim, when I go down to get to pallet town the game just freezes and stops working... any solution? I absolutely love the hack and really want to finish it, thank you!

Made an account on here just to review this incredible hack.
The story is unbelievable, such an incredible twist on the original Pokemon Fire Red game, that takes elements from HeartGold/SoulSilver.
Progressing up the ranks and reaping the rewards is very satisfying, and makes sense within the story.
The creator has an intensive level of Pokemon lore, including popular fan theories, and creepypasta to add an extra layer of spice to the game.
The challenge the game presents is constantly keeping you on your toes, the fights without hours of excessive training present you with a challenge you can't simply bash through with a highly leveled Pokemon (Especially at the conclusion of the story). The end game is lacking in content, and playing after the conclusion of the story has little to no reward or reason. Perhaps an endgame where you steal a pokedex from a trainer, and elite four becoming playable will fix this. The game includes scenes which may catch you by surprise with guilt, but if you're not prepared to steal a pidgey out of the hands of a crying child, this is not the game for you. I appreciate the authenticity in personalities too, with the admins acting how you would come to know them as an example of such relevant behaviors, you also have team rocket grunts acting like aggressive rude thugs, and not politically correct showing that not all of team Rocket is glamorous. I found this a clever way of showing the good and bad within both sides and how everything and everyone is not all black and white.
The game also has included a variety of side quests, and a karma system allowing good and bad decisions to impact you while playing through the story and their own specific rewards (however this is very minor and has no impact on the end game once the story is complete).
A issue I encountered, was attempting to use a save state to save my game. It causes crashes and you can/will lose your progress up to that point, do not go down this route under any circumstances. Save the game the same way you would naturally within the game and you wont have this issue.
The ending credit song a custom soundtrack of Team Rocket's Rocket, played through the sounds a GBA could play filled me with joy.
Overall I rate a 9.5/10 An incredible must play game for all fans of Team Rocket, and the darker side of Pokemon. (in my recommendation to be played in the uncensored state) where the only spot for improvement could be to do with the endgame.

This game is absolutely awesome. I love the dialogue that ensues when you actually defeat Red at Mt. Moon. I used cheats to do it, and it was hilarious. I can't wait for the next update. 1 suggestion, if this hasn't been implemented yet, if you're not planning to use the Sevii Islands, which I hope you are planning to use, but if by some chance you're not, maybe put the Move Reminder in Fuchsia with the Move Deleter
Where can we find the move relearner in this ROM? Not sure if it's possible in this mode given the new narrative and story. Thanks!

Time flies when you're locked down, and it appears today marks a year since the "final" release of Rocket Edition. Though this was inadvertently spoiled on Discord recently, I figure this is a good time to officially announce that a complete revamp of the game is in the works!

This will feature (amongst a ton of other things) a much more involved battling and stealing system, streamlined mechanics and an expanded postgame. Gen IV evolutions and randomiser support will be added by popular demand, and veteran players will be pleased to hear that there'll be features to speed through cutscenes and more monotonous battles built in to the game. Oh yes, and the long-awaited female playable character shall make her debut (currently pending whether a talented pixel artist is up to drawing her well).

As such, I've added back a #suggestions channel on our Discord server, so if you've thought of a cool mechanic that you think would add to the game, feel free to chime in here. (With the pre-warning that plot ideas will most likely be ignored.) I'll get around to posting more regular mini-updates in there (as I did leading up to the last release) presently...

I have been pondering whether or not to do another update of the game or not over the past year, but seeing the massive developments that have happened in decompiling the Gen III Pokémon games during that time have made me unable to resist. Since this has essentially opened up everything the GBA is capable of doing, I think we've only seen the beginning of the clever new things ROM hackers will be able to come up with in the time to come -- and I'd like Rocket Edition to be a part of that.

Also, to respond to assorted queries that have popped up in the thread: The move relearner is in Fuschia City, the game plays best on VBA-M (Windows) and MyBoy (Android) and Flash Cannon is a glitchy move at the moment - I'm sorry. ;O

Fantastic news indeed! With the advancement of hacking methodologies and availability of resources, this overhaul was much awaited, seriously. I'm so glad that you have finally decided to go all the way with Rocket Edition Colonel. I have one and only request though and that is "inclusion of later gen mons." I mean no offense but 8 generations have already passed, what's the point in sticking to first 3 gen mons so fervently. You are going to add 4th gen evos and that's wonderful, however, adding some handpicked mons from later generations won't change the game dynamic drastically, is it? Also, Starters and Pseudo legendaries from later gens, rare mons and HA mons might provide some extra motivation for pillage and plunder, don't you think? :D Stealing Pidgey and Ratatta type mons from a kid down the street seems substandard even from a Rocket Grunt's POV, seriously! In conclusion, I have just expressed my honest opinion which might further boost the overall experience of playing Rocket Edition and I mean no disrespect, whatsoever. Wish you luck with the project mate!

This is wonderful news! I'm actually quite eager to see what Rocket editions would be like on a more powerful base like the CFRU. Would be absolutely sick if difficultly options could be implemented like in Unbound. An expanded post game is something I'm looking forward to because if anything, that was the only aspect lacking in the hack. Good luck Colonelsalt!
