Pokémon WaterBlue
Hack of



Introduction
I'm someperson2008. You may have heard of me or not from a few scrapbox hacks I had awhile ago or something else. Well, anyways, this is a Blue remake. Yes, I've seen WaterBlue used as a name on another hack or two before, which weren't even Blue remakes. But as far as I know, those hacks aren't being worked on anymore. I'm using it for the most part because Nintendo was planning on that name, plus trademarked it, and no other name fits it that well, that goes with the FireRed and LeafGreen name trend.


Changes
Since my last hack thread I posted? I can now insert tiles, do basic scripting, and various other things.

Features
- Mini-Games! (maybe, depends on what they will be)
- Changed Wild Pokémon
- New Sprites
- Weather! (as FRLG didn't use any)
- New Areas (others also to be added and/or posted here)
- More Legendarys, Events for them
- Some caves remapped
- More things to come!

Anyways, this is going to be a VERY short project. All the other extra features are just being added to have something more to offer from the difference between Red and Blue.

...and, just for the record, I am NOT using new tiles in this hack. I've seen it done in say, hacks like yellow remakes, inserting a totally new tileset. A little off-topic, but in yellow remakes and third versions in general, I think it makes more sense to only make small changes to the tiles, and in a game in a pair like blue, have the same tiles as the other game in the pair, which is clearly shown in the paired version of all the Pokémon games, for the most part.

Status as of March 29th, 2009
"Mapping the Battle Frontier for Kanto"

Future Plans
- Spoofing up this thread
- Making banners
- Finish up titlescreen logo with NTA

Team
someperson2008 - Creator, Mapping, Tiling, Banners, Basic Scripting, Other...
Nine-Tailed Assassin - Titlescreen Editing
machomuu - Scripting

Alpha/Beta Testers
- RetroGamer379
- doubles92
- bemertonboy
- PokemonBroski


The only other part of the team needed currently is beta testers, which won't require a special form or anything, seeing as their isn't much in the way of "testing" or anything. Just post if you want to test. I only need a few people at the most, but there's not really any kind of limit right now on the number of testers.

Screenshots
To be added to the thread soon... Some graphics still to be finished up.

Videos
If any, they will come soon

Banners
Coming soon!

Um, why make a Blue remake???

Well, I might not understand it, but maybe it will click in my head later :P

But I can be a Beta tester.
Hmm...well I get what you're saying, since the opposite versions of the games only have small changes like wild pokemon and the pokemon's sprites, but I figured it would be a nice project. Like I said, this is VERY short term. I'd rather do this than a yellow remake, seeing as I can't implement the pikachu following yourself, and I haven't really seen much in the way to blue remakes.

well, sure lol i'm not going to turn you down or anything, but I actually think I can manage on this one, seeing as only basic new scripts will be needed, but if I come across something I'll come to you for it :-D

Be careful with this name, Nintendo had it trademarked in North America before deciding to keep it LeafGreen.

Is this based on the Japanese Blue?
Yeah, I'm aware of the fact they trademarked it, but I'm not too worried about it right now. I'm actually basing it on both the english AND jap blue, because I've read up on a lot of stuff on every version of the games from gen 1 on, and I think it would be kinda interesting to add some things from the japanese blue. I'm thinking I should maybe add a mix of what the wild pkmn were in the jap blue, and having those on the routes where they were different from the english blue, and Cerulean cave will DEFINATELY be remapped, at least.

BUMP

Just a little update. I was thinking of maybe adding the battle frontier(emerald's), or making a new one off the coast of kanto or something. I might put up a poll soon about the idea, whether it makes sense or no. I think it sounds more suitable for a third version, but actually blue was somewhat of a third version to red and green, with yellow another just based on the anime, kind of a spinoff. idk right now.

Its bound to be good then, I loved both Blues.

I thought hey trademarked it as OceanBlue?

Anyway, sounds like a good idea. I wondered why no one ahd done this yet.
Why would it have been trademarked as OceanBlue if it was FireRed/LeafGreen and not VolcanoRed/ForestGreen?

nope, they trademarked waterblue. Like Crytal-Walters said, it wouldn't fit the fire and leaf trend.

Yeah, good is what I'm trying to aim for lol. Progress should be pretty quick. The main thing I'm working on right now is graphics like the titlescreen and what not. And like I said last, I might add the Battle Frontier. I should add a poll for now.

Now that I think, a new Kanto one from scratch would be the best, seeing as the anime has the Frontier in Kanto, from what I just saw on bulbapedia. Idk atm. I'll just see how the poll goes.

Yea, I used that title once, then I gave up... A loooong time ago... Anywho, I will proudly support you if you can get some banners and pics up.
Yeah, I've been working on some banners. They aren't my main priority right now, but I'll try to get a few up in the next few days. =D

Watsup man. Game looks nice. Can i be a beta tester?
sure. a few more are ideal anyways.

and just a little update. the poll is going to end on the 22nd, which is plenty of time, but anyone who hasn't voted yet should asap just so i can get an early idea of what people are wanting. It's obvious people want a new Kanto one, from who has voted.

sure can. I'll add both your names right now.

and I plan to have some screenshots up soon. I usually try to put a few screenshots up the first time I post any threads, but the main graphic changes, like the titlescreen, still need some changes, but are done for the most part. After that I'll put some up.

We are a rare breed, supporters of blue. The majority of people had the red version of the game when it first came out, and I was the only one i knew to have blue so i cant wait to see this game come to fruition. Good luck!

Well, I actually had red as my game lol. But I support blue through what I've played on an emulator. I think blue needs a remake, with some extra useless extras from what FRLG had haha. Like I said earlier, Technically, blue was a third version anyways to red and green. A lot of people say it's yellow, but it really isn't. It was more of a spinoff game. What other third versions are based on the anime and have your starter following you?
Also, I've seen a lot of talk from people expecting/wanting a Blue remake on other forums, so I figured it would be good to have a remake of it out there as a hack, a finished hack(though it wouldn't be too difficult for anyone, even a newbie to finish this), instead of the really generic GSC remakes coming out. Sure, I love GSC and remakes of it, but they're obviously getting really old.

Sounds like a good hack
I'd love to help if you even need any
I can BETA test, scriot, map, and OU's but I'm not that great at it :(
anyways
good luck
Hmm...well I think machomuu and I is enough for scripting, seeing as the newer scripts involved will probably only be for legendary battles and simple battle frontier-related things. Same for mapping and OWs. But you can beta test for sure.

Also, I was just thinking, and I really can't implement the kinds of things the Emerald and D/P Frontiers had for the most part. If there is a Frontier, which I don't see why there wouldn't be at all, some of the things may be watered down from the other Frontiers had, or substitutes, but I'll try my best on whatever's in it, using alternatives to certain things and what not. Also, I just thought of the idea of putting mini-games in here. Like I said, I'm not an expert on everything so I'll try my best to make simple mini-games just involving maps I guess, and some simple scripts could do the job. The mini-games may actually be in the Battle Frontier, or I could just put them in Kanto somewhere. The existing ones in Sevii I'll just keep there, and have an alternative place for the new ones XD.

Edit : I was just thinking and voting on mini-games just would take more time than needed for this hack. So they MIGHT be in and are a WIP for now.
