Pokémon Haunted Version


Haunted Version is a ROM Hack of Pokémon FireRed in English.

Important message: I think I'll let this hack rest, it was a good startup, I learned a lot (I'm still learning BTW) but I think I'll move on to a new hack. Not completely leaving the horror-scene behind: it will be a DayZ hack. There's no thread of it yet, but as soon as there is, I'll post the link here.

The Kanto region as you know it is gone. There is a plague of Ghosts all over Kanto, and suddenly trainers appear to have more knowledge of Pokémon battles. In other words, Ghosts here are the main theme, and battles are more difficult (better AI and coverage, not just a Caterpie). Trying to nuzlocke this game will be a true challenge.
The storyline is pretty much the same as the normal FireRed, except Team Rocket is now after the mightiest Pokémon ever: ((not yet revealed)).

For those of you who'll say I lack imagination, this is mere a study, as I am completely new to hacking, and I didn't want to start off too big.

Features in Haunted Version Beta 1.1
  • Kanto, Johto, Hoenn Pokémon. You will encounter many different Pokémon, not just the Kanto Pokémon.
  • Two new Pokémon added (sprite only). (see screenshot)
  • Physical / Special split.
  • Some stat buffs of normally "not-so-good"mons. (think of Pokémon like Raticate and Arbok)
  • Decapitalisation. (this is only finished up to and including Pewter City, still some errors which are fixed in Beta 1.2)
  • More difficult battles. (as mentioned before, better AI and coverage)
  • It only goes up to and including Pewter City.

Screenshots
(more will follow)



Known bugs:
  • Some things are still in capitals.
  • The help menu palette is incorrect.

To do List:
  • Some things are still in capitals.
  • Check if the Special / Physcal splitter works.
  • Make all battles more difficult.
  • Add some gen 4, 5, 6 Pokémon
  • Edit the overworld more[/B] (puddles, rocky paths, and more)
  • Add some new physical and special moves

Pokémon DayZ version

DayZ is a ROM Hack of Pokémon Firered BPRE in English, based on the mod for Arma II: Operation Arrowhead.

Kanto. One of the best known regions in the Pokémon Universe, created by Arceus. Kanto has a long history and has overcome the attack of Team Rocket twice. Many champions walked its routes and many succeeded.
Seeming quiet and peacefull as always, even if an international crime organisation ruled its streets, Kanto never knew real terror. Not until recently at least.

A zombie virus spread, infecting almost all the human inhabitants of Kanto. How it was caused is still unknown. Some say it was due to a failed experiment on Cinnabar Island, others say it was Giovanni looking for revenge.
You are one of the few survivors, hiding in a building in Celadon City, where you start your journey. All you have to do is survive, escape from Kanto, maybe even flee to the Johto region? All you have is a Nidoran to protect you. Good luck, you'll need it.

Features

  • Tons of zombies Although there are no "waves" of zombies, they do seem to hide in tall grass, much like Pokémon do. They also dwell through the streets of deserted cities.
  • No Pokécenters No more free healing your Pokémon. You now have to pick up ammo (pp up), food (HP healing items) and antibiotics (status healing items). So use them wisely because there is a limited supply throughout the game.
  • Other survivors Be carefull with these folks though, they might say they're friendly but attack you anyway!
  • An apocalyptic version of Kanto The old infrastructure is gone entirely. The cities are still there, but there are no longer services like Pokécenters, Marts or Game Corners (the buildings however are excelent places to find loot such as food or abandoned Pokémon)
  • Custom music I'll make my own DayZ style music, for the routes, cities and battles.
  • Extensive decapitalisation.

Features that I might include

  • Updated mechanics. The Generation 4 physical / special / status split, updated moves and learn sets, the Fairy-type, Generation 4, 5 and 6 moves and more.
  • Generation 4, 5 and 6 Pokémon So Pokémon like Riolu, Excadrill and Greninja

(there will be more soon)

I'd recommend mrdollsteak's rombase as it includes most of your stuff which you've put in the todo list. Also i'm looking forward to this !
That would be a good idea except I think it's too late since I believe it needs to be patched on a clean rom.

Thanks for your tip! I think I'll be using it from Beta 1.2 on as it really saves me time. 1.2 will be out even sooner!

I just patched it, and I just have to fix some minor bugs now. If I start all over again or code all the moves by myself it would cost more time than fixing those bugs

Looks good! A question, will you include MrDollSteak patch? There things are already decapitalized, and it even has the new items and moves!
Pokémon Trial Black will be coming soon! Explore Unova again in a challenging adventure with multitude of changes!

Hacks I support (I support most of them these are my favourite ones or ones I've put a lot of time on!):

Pokémon Victory Fire, Pokémon Snakewood, Pokémon Dark Energy, Pokémon Adventure: Red Story, Pokémon XG, Pokémon Gaia, and Pokémon Resolute Version.

Once I have finished all battles up to and including Cerulean City, I'll upload Beta 1.2

Great hack, its cool to up the stats of bad pokémons, good luck with the project.
Thanks for your feedback! I have some bad news tho, the 1.2 beta release will be delayed due to my exams and stuff for school. When that's done I can focus 100% on the hacking again.
Stay tuned!
