This hack looks incredible my friend, and i really hope we can see it fully completed!

Although, the starters you have chosen are not balanced at all.... Swinub has advantages on both Yamma and Tangela because of their types, and because it has a third evolution. Moreover, Tangela has a smaller move-pool because it only has 1 typing while the other two have 2 typings.

i would like to make some recommendations:

1. Make sure the 3 starters have the same amount of evolutions, preferably 3, because they usually have higher stats and better move-pools.

2. Make sure the typings are fair. For example, in the original games Fire is weak against water, water is weak against grass and grass is weak against fire. This cycle is VERY important, to make things more balanced. There are many cycles like this that you can choose from (Google, 'Pokemon type chart' and go to the first link, for help)

3. It would make "recommendation 2" much easier if all three starters had only one type (only for the first evolutionary stage of course)

I can't wait till the first beta comes out and i wish you luck!

That Guy You Can Always Depend On
Thank you! I agree with your sentiments regarding the starters. In fact, I'm increasingly leaning towards just using the Generation 4 starters.

People already told you this but, your custom sprites are superb! They fit the FR style very well.
The reason I'm looking forward to the completion of this hack isn't only because of that though:
I liked Cobalt a lot, so I can expect this one to be good as well. :)
Thank you!

Wow.... Just took a look at this thread for the first time and just... wow...
The Relicanth wall looks amazing, as does the Ho-oh building on the mountain top... And actually all of the maps do.

Mhmm... A region full of secrets, treasures and nature ? Awesome. I like that :D I love exploration.

Really looking forward to playing this game !

I also love the starters... Btw, how is Tangela a hard choice ? It's supposed to be a fully evolved pokemon before gen 4... I think ima take that cute Yanma though <3
Thanks!

I got bored and made this userbar for you :P

Thank you! I've added it to the first post, with credit.

I think I would do a Let's Play of this game when the beta comes out!
I look forward to it!

I can't wait to play this game, it looks amazing!!!
Thanks!

The screenshots look amazing! I think the new tiles look very well with FR tiles.
I can't wait to play this!

Best of luck, I'll be playing this once it's released. :)

Thank you!

Can you make TMs reusable like X/Y
If I can work out how to, I will implement this, but it isn't my priority at the moment.

Enjoy your sticky for a month, you deserve it ^___^.
Thank you, and thanks to everyone who supported the hack in Hack of the Month. It means a lot!

Nice hack i like the screenshots cant wait to play
Thank you!

Yes, eventually all of the characters will have unique sprites and designs (i.e. the player, Professor Redwood, the rival, Gym Leaders, etc.).

Progress has been sort of slow because of RL reasons, but here's a screenshot of the Letter item:

Meh, I like the Ancient Power theme; feels like a good fit with the rest of the hack, and makes it even more different from the 'standard pokemon game.' Just consider editing the stats a bit to make them more close (and/or consider the earlier suggestion to give a stat-lowered Piloswine instead of Swinub). "Type balance" is really only meaningful for the rival who picks a starter after you - and even then it only *really* matters in the early game, before you get a chance to build up a team, as you can always add someone who's strong against your rival's mon.

The one thing that I would note is that it would be weird for the Ancient Power mons to be presented as the standard league starters, and I don't think that they should be presented as such - instead:
a) you could have them be given out by a 'follower of the old ways' person instead of the professor;
b) they could be a part of the professor's research into ancient pokemon;
c) they could be featured prominently in the iconography on the local ruins, and so have mysterious cultural meaning (easily combined with option a);
d) the player could encounter them when a quake exposes their home, and the player has to choose which one to assist out of the danger zone, leading to them and the chosen mon bonding (a rival could help another, and the professor the third, if you want).
Or e) some mix of those ideas.

Basically: matching with the hack's themes is more important than achieving 'balance.'

To be honest the Gen 4 starters would also fit well, a Mayan monkey, an earth Turtle (Gaia! :D), fit well enough, then add piplup for balance.
WOW you just made it seem like the gen 4 starters fit very well with the hack's theme!

I'm increasingly leaning towards just using the Generation 4 starters.
Idea for @Spherical Ice: Later in the game, lets say i chose Piplup as my starter, i could go to a "flaming jungle" and find a Chimchar (a flaming jungle could also be a good location for a hidden temple!) . Then later on i could surf to a far away to a "round mossy island" where i can get a Turtwig (another possible spot for a hidden temple). And if i didn't choose a Piplup, i can get it at a "snowy mountain" (yet again a great spot for a hidden temple).

Again this is just an idea, so you don't have to use it if you don't want it :D

To note, Infernape is really *not* a Mayan monkey. It seems to be pretty clearly based on Sun Wukong (the Monkey King from Journey to the West) and on monkey kung fu - i.e., it's Chinese.

(That being said, there is an artist who draws pokes in Mayan engraving style; I cannot put links in posts, so search for "pokemayan" and "monarobot" if you're interested.)

Torterra-the-world-turtle is certainly fitting, though.

The 4 Gen Starters : Awesome idea (really love my lil-seed) but if not i will still play because if is anything like Cobalt then i will love it.
The flowers bloom, then wither... The stars shine and one day become extinct. This earth, the sun, the galaxies and even the big universe, someday will be destroyed. Compared with that, the human life is only a blink, just a little time. In that short time - people are born, laugh, cry, fight, are injured, feel joy, sadness, hate someone, love someone. All in just a moment. And then, are embraced by the eternal sleep called death.

You guys and your hacking really make me feel extremely excited. As I saw, you have a wonderful storylines, amazing maps and one more thing that your hacking will have pokemon from Kalos Region. ( I really love the first 3 Gen, but you know...you will have a bit boring when you play it over and over agains. )

I am very interested in the Acient Storyline, and suddenly I had an idea about Pokemon's Starter. Have you ever think about using Acient Pokemon for Pokemon's Starter? Your storylines is about Acient, and your pokemon's starter is Acient Pokemon, I think it will be very interested.

There maybe will have 2 options :

Option 1 : Instead of have 3 pokemon's starter, you only have 2 pokemon which revived from Fossil. I really fall in love with Omnyte and Kabuto from Gen.1 , or maybe another Pokemon revived from Fossill from another Gen. With the Fossill Pokemon, they only have one step evolve, and all the STAB are amazing.

The storyline for this option maybe : the professor suddenly got 2 Fossil when he discoved the cave, he came back his labs and revived this with helping from Fossil Professor and now he want to give these pokemon for the player.

Option 2 : Instead of normal Pokemon's Starter, you can replace them with another Acient pokemon, in my opinion, I suggest 3 pokemon as below :

+ Omanyte / Omastar : Rock/Water
+ Lileep / Cardily : Rock/Grass ( This pokemon do not have many Grass Moves, so I wonder another one is Cacnea / Caturne - It looks have a little Acient :) )
+Darumaka / Darmanitian : Fire

Unfortunately, I still not think about storylines for this option. :)

So It's is my opinions and my suggest for you, whatever, i really love your hacking,so whatever you done, i will support you. :)

You definitely raise some good points here, although I don't really want to edit any base stats (past the official changes that happened with Generation 6).

The one thing that I would note is that it would be weird for the Ancient Power mons to be presented as the standard league starters, and I don't think that they should be presented as such - instead:
a) you could have them be given out by a 'follower of the old ways' person instead of the professor;

Or e) some mix of those ideas.

Basically: matching with the hack's themes is more important than achieving 'balance.'
The way the game is set out already, it's pretty much as you described in point b and c.

To be honest the Gen 4 starters would also fit well, a Mayan monkey, an earth Turtle (Gaia! :D), fit well enough, then add piplup for balance.
This was very similar to my reasoning, too.

Later in the game, lets say i chose Piplup as my starter, i could go to a "flaming jungle" and find a Chimchar (a flaming jungle could also be a good location for a hidden temple!) . Then later on i could surf to a far away to a "round mossy island" where i can get a Turtwig (another possible spot for a hidden temple). And if i didn't choose a Piplup, i can get it at a "snowy mountain" (yet again a great spot for a hidden temple).

Again this is just an idea, so you don't have to use it if you don't want it :D
Those are some nice ideas, and I think I will indeed making the other two starters available as event Pokémon later on in the hack.

To note, Infernape is really *not* a Mayan monkey. It seems to be pretty clearly based on Sun Wukong (the Monkey King from Journey to the West) and on monkey kung fu - i.e., it's Chinese.

(That being said, there is an artist who draws pokes in Mayan engraving style; I cannot put links in posts, so search for "pokemayan" and "monarobot" if you're interested.)

Thanks, your enthusiasm is appreciated. As mentioned earlier in this post, I'm going to go with the Generation 4 starters for now, although your input raises some valid points that I considered back when Gaia was only in a theoretical stage. Ultimately, I decided against the option of 2 starters, and the option of using fossil Pokémon altogether as it technically makes little sense, flavour-wise, and because the fact that the fossils would be from different generations (or, having only one that isn't a fossil) would rub me the wrong way.


Progress is still slow due to a general lack of motivation. Here's a screenshot of Ignis Roost, the route that leads up to Apex Temple.

Might I say, this is very impressive. I'm sure you have heard this all before, but I have high hopes for this masterpiece in the making. I've been lurking around without having made an account, but I just had to make one simply to share the magnificence of this. I have nothing to offer but supportive words, unfortunately, as well as a classic 'good luck'. I am looking forward to witnessing more improvements.

Thank you! I'm glad to see you so excited for this hack!

I finally got off the fence and have gone with the Generation 4 starters.

i hope the first beta will come soon/ :D
Thank you!

Can't wait for thhis hack xD
its awesome and the link to the past makes it even more interesting
Thanks!

:10:
A nuzlocke mode has crossed my mind before. It wouldn't be an urgent thing, but if I have spare time I might try adding it in.

This hack looks really awesome and i was wondering if you have an idea of when youll be finished with it, and i was wondering if you need any beta testers.
Thanks! I'm not sure myself when it will be ready for a beta release, but I will post here when that time does come around so watch this space.

I've been doing a lot of insertion of new moves, descriptions, items, Pokémon, and so on. Most of this can't really be shown with screenshots, though. Here's some of what can be screenshotted, though:

Spoiler:





With regards to new evolution methods, the README.txt file that will be included with any release of this hack will detail all of the new methods. The Regal Stone is used on a select few other Pokémon as an alternative to trading, although the ability to evolve them in the original method is still available (though trading itself may not be 100% functional).

Next up, some move animations:

Spoiler:


And a demonstration of the Assault Vest, which I got working thanks to MrDollSteak:

Spoiler:


I've also been working on inserting cries (which, incidentally, may eventually lead to the expansion of the ROM because they take up quite a lot of space), but, again, that can't really be demonstrated through screenshots.

Progress is going smoothly, albeit on the more mechanical side of things than on actual gameplay. Stay tuned!

I love the new move animations! Draco Meteor is perfect, and Moonblast looks wonderful for a spliced animation. Perhaps you could change the color the attacked Pokemon turns from pink to white or something closer to the moon, though?

Hey, I cannot say but great job with this. This hack looks stunning and definitely deserves HOTM. I was offering that I could help in creating a wild PKMN location list if you are looking for someone to do that. I am also one that some may consider a "Grammar Nazi" so if you need help with grammar, I could help with that too. I would be willing to help in any way possible for the hack. [Though I am not sure how it all works, getting the whole hack onto one ROM and staying connected with one another and up to date.] Anyways, if you need any help, I will be happy to help in any way possible that I am capable of. Good luck with the Pokemon Gaia!
