Intro


Pokémon Cyan is Firered hack located in the tropical archipelago of Celia, featuring a decision-based storyline, a mix of official Pokémon and high quality Fakemon and a brand new region with updated graphics among other things. It is also my second serious attempt at a hack so I'd love to hear any feedback you can offer on it.


Story


Team Rocket was once a powerful force in Kanto, until one day, a boy named Red defeated them in their base - Silph Co. and went on to defeat their leader again in his GYM. The leader disappeared, and Team Rocket disappeared into the shadows... 3 years later, they attacked the region of Johto and took their radio tower, but again, a boy named Gold defeated them. The last of Team Rocket finally dissolved and the regions were peaceful once again... until now... Giovanni has come back and resurrected Team Rocket from the grave, and launched an attack on the region of Celia. Pokémon have been mysteriously disappearing from Celia, what's happening to them? What are team rocket doing with them?

It's your 12th birthday, meaning you're finally allowed to go on a Pokémon Journey, just like you've always wanted to! You get a Pokémon and head out to earn badges, become a Pokémon Master, and collect all the Pokémon in the Pokédex! Whilst travelling through the Celia archipelago, you stumble upon team rocket attempting to catch Regice, one of the the legendary regis! You soon discover their plans, and it's up to you, whether to join team rocket and help them achieve their goals, or help the regis and save Celia from their plan! What will YOU choose?...

The story truly requires an improvement but "screenieswise", the hack seems to have potential.

By the way, is it going to be "collect gym badges and beat elite four storyline" or something completely different ? In case you're going with the regular one, make sure to add lots of special events or else it will feel like playing FireRed with new maps, tiles and stuff...

Story doesn't really tell much but I like the screens.

EDIT: Will there be any other Fakemon? The Sudowoodo evolution looks nice
Thanks, and yes, there will be other fakemon. :)

It'll be a collect the GYM badges hack, but there will be plenty of new features like the ones I listed in features, and some more.
Looks pretty good, I like the first Fakémon, well designed.
I'd assume it is a Sudowoodo evolution but it's level 1.
It was so I could test it.

Your tropical-based tiles and textbox are looking really great along with that Sudowodo evolution that everyone else has mentioned. I'm also looking forward to your implementation of Dive and Whirlpool in the FR engine. The one thing I can point out is that I think that the ledge in your sixth screen would look better if it were perfectly straight rather than bent as it will fit in with your style of mapping more. Oh and the story :x

While this hack is still fairly early in its development, there is nothing but good signs coming from what you've done so far. Good luck and keep up the work chrunch! :3

Like the others say the storyline doesn't say much but this looks promising. The tiles are neat. I the fakemon even if you didn't make it. I bet you'll be able to find/make more to make an excellent dex. Overall looking forward to more Chrunch! :)
Thanks! :) As I've said before, I'm working on the story to make it better. :)
I like your screens but what i really like is the fakemon(the evolution of sudowoodo).
You have to improve the story, i guess that was just a draft.
Thanks. :) The story was just an early version, and I didn't want to reveal that much about it, either.

Thanks. I've actually already got the scripts for Dive and Whirlpool, I just have to insert them into the ROM. :)
Looks great so far man! The tiles are awesome, and I'm looking forward to more fakemon. If you need any help with the story I'm just a VM away!
Thanks. :D
Good to see you working on this. Hope to see updates soon! So there is going to be a road-fork somewhere along the play-through? (according to the storyline)

Oh, and will the neutral-pole fakemon that's like plusle/minun be included, too?
Yes, there will be a road-fork somewhere around the 5th/6th GYM badge, where you can choose to help the evil team capture the regi's or help the regi's. :) Probably, I just haven't got around to inserting that fakemon yet.

Mini-Updates!


This is just a little preview of what Glacier Island in the north of Celia will look like. The map won't look like that in the game, it's a test map I made to show off the tiles.


A big update is coming soon, including the fixed story, and much more! :)

Looks nice.
I like the Fakemon, I hope to see more images of your fakemons in the future ^^
Thanks. :)

I'm working on the story, and I'd like to know, what does everyone think of a split story? What this means is, at some point in the game, you'll get the choice to join team rocket and capture the regis, or help the regis. I was planning to implement it into the story I have on the thread, but I'd like to know everyone's opinion on whether I should include it or not. I'd love to hear everyone's opinion. :)

I think that is a really good idea as there aren't that many hacks that have a split storyline at the moment. In addition, if you're willing to put in the work to make noticeable differences as opposed to simple text changes between the storylines that would be even better.

Also, your snow tiles are looking pretty cool :)

I'd definitely make the story split noticeable, like something similar to the scale of Ruby Destiny: LoG's split story, meaning completely different events, places, characters, etc. Text changes wouldn't be worth it. :/

Thanks. :)

Any more opinions on the split story, everyone? I want to make sure it's a good idea before I decide to implement it. Thanks! :D

i like the ideia of the split story, if it will be two differents ways to take, make sure that will have differents events and two original stories.In my opinion you should implement it to your hack.

This would be a great feature to add into your hack and would bolster replayability as well as the overall quality of the game itself. I'm really looking forward to this game, Chrunch, and not just because I'm the composer :p

Do split storylines. It's the reason LoG is my favorite ROM hack atm and why I will replay it many times over. Y'know, going on the "bad" side can be fun sometimes :]
Yeah, going on the bad side sometimes can be fun. :)
Nice hack graphics look great i hope to see more from you and hope to see you stick to this hack :P
Thanks. :D
This looks great I'm glad to see a hack with fakemon there haven't been to many lately
Thanks, and there always will be Fakemon in my hacks. They're a great feature to add originality instead of the same Pokemon over and over.

Updates!


This isn't the big update yet, but I just thought I'd share with everyone a little preview of some music for a route in the game, composed by the amazing Icεy. :) To hear the rest of the new music, you'll have to play the game yourself when it comes out!

Roblodo looks great and the tiles look great, if a little bright.
There's not much to go on right now script and story-wise, but both look decent and I trust you're good enough to make something worthwhile.

I have to say though, I'm not a fan of two options -- well, not a fan of the two options you give the player. You've given the option become a Pokémon Master or help Team Rocket as if one cant be done without the other. And if you help them, who are the antagonists? Just something for you to think about. This has potential, good luck!
