hey I got a couple questions...how you gonna get other peoples pokemon to obey you without gym badages? I think you have to make missions to steal or bribe, or kill to get some gym badges or the pokmon cant obey... ohhh with the fart joke south of mt moon...you should put a brown ghastly in there some how....maybe if you talk to the guy 4 5 times..... oh and custom sprites be epic..i remember the epic spirte of morowak in lavender town in toxic purple... so hopefully someone on your team can make those. oh and for a couple surprise trainers,,,maybe add the toxic purple guy...who ever made it as a trainer of some kind... and something else no other hacker really tapped into is the orginal world champion of the Gameboy games....use his team and moves as a huge test somehow...people will use ash, but wont use the actual person who is actually the best human player in the world ...idk be interesting...anyways great hack....I hope I live long enough to see it finished :D

Congratulations on winning Hack of the Month! Enjoy your sticky for the month!
Wow, that is cool.

I thought upon release that the game was far too short to even be nominated for something like HotM, but I hardly mind being proven wrong. Thanks so much to everyone who voted!
Why not add Pokemon center penalties for infamy for stealing too many pokemons. The more pokemons you steal, the more expensive healing services are. Same with stores, %added per point of infamy; But then the higher the infamy, the faster your pokemons grow.
or expand on it that you can only heal in Team Rocket "Safe Houses" lik the daycare or something similar if you try to get healing from nurse joy she battles you instead :)
I have a mild infamy system planned (that you will see in the next beta), but I like my Pokémon Centers free, and I don't see any reason to inconvenience players for the rest of the game for choosing a particular playstyle. I agree that random battles with characters who were good guys in FR is fun, though: you can definitely expect more of that to come.

I promise you will, buddy.

Having Pokémon disobey you is just another random inconvenience that I don't think adds to any meaningful (i.e. non-frustrational) challenge, so I'd like to steer clear of that. My team currently consists of me, myself and I, but I will make sure to push all of us to the brim to make the game look good-- a number of custom sprites are in the making.

Dude, reading this type of stuff is what makes it all worth it.

Congrats on Hack of the Month, always is nice to see a hack do something a little differently.

Just played the first beta and loved it... would love to see where you take it from there.

Found a decent way to make money as well... the Meowth on Route 7 sometimes (5%) carry nuggets (thief ftw!) so I got some decent money which I used to get those evolutionary stones and some great balls.

Which then made it easier to beat Red when we met. So now I am swimming in money (compared to the 12 dollars I started off with haha)...

The team right now is:
Poliwhirl (Lvl 25) and soon to be poliwrath.
Vileplume (lvl 23)
Pidgeotto (lvl 29) and basically the one who managed to train up everyone else till lvl 15 atleast)
Jolteon (lvl 20)... only knows physical moves grrh.
Arcanine (lvl 32) Really wanted to see if retaliate was in the game, guess not.

Now,
1. Does it only have the firered pokes or will you be adding some as well? (Mostly the evolutions of things already in Gen I like Scizor, Magnezone, Crobat, Steelix etc)
2. Seems a bit weird that not only the PokeCenter heal my pokemon without any issues, but also that none of the people I steal from actually go and report to the police or something. I guess it's because I'm only stealing from the kids and old people currently, but maybe there could be a system later where police will look for you and battle you if you talk to them?
3. Seems we're advancing too quickly if Giovanni starts talking to you directly and knows you on a first name basis already... maybe add an intermediary who will screw up at a later date and you will take his place?
4. I see you've got some hidden abilities present in the hack. Love it. My Vileplume has effect spore (yay) and Jolteon has quick feet (boo)...
5. You can find better excuses than a fart blocking a whole route :P Two trainers battling or a beedrill attack or a landslide or even the police being there and you not wanting to get caught etc etc. It was funny though! Certainly wasn't expecting it.
6. Maybe reduce the route 7 pokemon lvls if you don't want people beating Red!
7. Did Red take both the fossils? I thought he only took 1 and the researcher took the other one.
8. Absolutely love not being harassed by Zubat every two steps into Mt Moon!
9. I quite liked my run away rattata early in the game... maybe buff his stats a bit so he can be used even later?
10. For a moment after beating Red, I thought I'd get to steal one of his pokemon... hahaha

A suggestion for still having some gym battles (as such) but outside the gyms. Fighting Misty somewhere in Cerulean for some precious item you have been asked to get and she wants as well... or trying to steal Pokemon that is chilling in the gym and the trainers try and stop you from doing that...

Either way, I'd love to see where you take the story (and what other pokemon I can steal)... And congratz for Hack of the Month!

I had to make a new account because I don't remember my 7 year old account info, I played Toxic Purple shortly after its first release, was really sad when it was abandoned, Seeing this made me happy and I HAD to play it, beating red was really fun, but took a long time with my poliwrath/rattata grinding on route 7 but was very worth it, it seems promising but getting a little too close and personal with Giovanni right off the bat seems weird

You'll want to make sure you're using Pokémon FireRed Version v1.0 as your ROM-base (not v1.1) -- I should probably specify that in the main post.
Yea I ran into that issue too. Didn't know that the version I got was v.1.1.

Edit: Found the correct version! Huzzah! Now onto playing the game.

Really like what you're doing with the game so far!

Thanks a lot, man! Glad you liked it.

It should be obvious why I won't tell you the answer to your plot-related questions, and a lot of the things you point out have been addressed earlier in the thread already. For the record, though, I've somewhat warmed to the idea of including newer evolution-traded Pokémon. It's cool to see you felt the lowered encounter rates as well-- I just thought it made everything a whole lot more comfortable.

this hack looks amazing :) can't wait to try it... but I usually wait for at least beta 3 or 4 when there is like half game to play. do you know at least approximately when will beta 2 be ready? :)
Thanks, man. My current conservative estimate is somewhere around June-- that is, with a bit of wiggle room after I'm done with finals in May. Couldn't tell you exactly, but I really will do everything I can to get it out as soon as possible. Pinky promise.
Please release a new version
I like your enthusiasm.
Is this finished or still not done story wise?
BTW I am working on my own Team Rocket version of Fire Red, but don't worry mine goes away from Red/Ash's time
Yeah, story-wise I've laid out everything as far as the main plot goes a long time ago, but my plans for sidequests and mini-arcs are a bit less structured as of now.

Goood! Hope you include them.

Also, does this have the Gen VI BST buff that mons like Clefable and Pidgeot got? Also saved up enough coins for Scyther, but won't buy it until I know Scizor's in the game :D

I'm assuming by BST you mean base stats? Frankly, I haven't played competitively since gen IV, so I wasn't even aware this had been changed. All base stats remain the same as they were in the original FireRed, and I haven't seen the need to change them around. Unless this is an issue a lot of people feel very passionate about, I'll probably keep it as-is.
