Man, I'm doing a second playthrough of the ROM hack just for fun, but I just realized that there's an inconsistency that I should have mentioned long before this:

- On the northern sandy portion of Route 15 that leads to Route 16, to the right there's a double battle against two swimmers who have two Jellicent. The problem with it is once you beat them, they still mention having Frillish on their teams instead of their evolved version.

Ah yeah I think there are quite a few trainers with that issue, thanks for letting me know!

Well, finally back in here, though with only a single suggestion:

- Buff X-Scissor in some way (a personal idea being increasing its crit rate). As it is right now, X-Scissor is left totally outclassed by Leech Life: they're both the exact same BP, but Leech Life has the healing effect as well as the TM for it being gotten a lot earlier (Leech Life being available near the end of Akala Island, while you have to wait until post-Totem Mimikyu, over at Route 16, to get X-Scissor), which leaves X-Scissor as an inferior option usable only by Pokemon who have literally no other STAB or coverage options. Giving it a secondary effect and maybe changing its BP could help the move stand out a bit more on its own, and let it carve a niche not taken up by its leeching big sibling.

Hey, I thought the same thing when I first saw the Leech Life buff: why would I ever use X-Scissor over this? Turns out that hardly anything learns Leech Life, and many of the mons that do don't even want to use it as they're special attackers, so X-Scissor's niche is that it's actually compatible with more than a handful of Pokemon. That said I see no reason it shouldn't be a Bug-type Leaf Blade clone, it's a pretty underwhelming move as it is. Thanks for the suggestion!

hey I saw your hack looks cool but I only have normal sun and I can't buy ultra sun right now
can I play it with normal sun? Ik it has some missing pokemon and location but can I play it at all?
Hey sorry the hack won't work with normal Sun, there are too many differences in the files. It'd probably just cause Sun to crash or freeze on startup.

Hey Buffel! Just passing by to thank you for the awesome hack as always and inform you about a trainer at Malie City North (Outer Cape, The Janitors HQ and that stuff), the Rising Star Nainoa you give the letter to and asks for a battle has a LvL 29 Delibird and LvL 29 Mudbray. I don't know if it slipped through the roster but its understandable since there's a lot of coding in that.
Thank you so much once again!

Hey, you're welcome! Thanks for letting me know about this (and for including the trainer's name!). I missed quite a few of the optional trainers as there wasn't much info on them around when I was making the hack, so I didn't know they existed. I'll give Nainoa a proper team next time I update the hack.

HEY buffel thanks for making this amazing hack. do you have any tips for doing a randomizer run? i tried to do it own my own and the guide i read told me to delete the update data which is not optimal. im using a physical 3ds and a digital copy of ultra sun if that helps. when i attempted it on my own i had the randomized files but none of your changes (one of the starters was illimise which was just a normal bug type and missing the fairy typing) thanks for all you do!

Hey, glad you like it!
I've explained how to randomize my XY hack in this post; it's a very similar process for USUM, but you'll need to copy a different set of files back into the hack once you've randomized it. There's a list of what each editable file contains in pk3DS (go to options -> about gGARCs). If you need any more info or some clarification I'm happy to help, just let me know!

Hi, how can i play this hack in citra for android? I dnt know how to install the files in mi phone citra is a quite diferent of the pc version
Sorry my bad english im from uruguay so
Hey, sorry I keep forgetting to make an android guide. For now there's this post which explains where to put the mod's files. You'll also need to install a copy of the vanilla game's update for the hack to work, but I don't know how to do that on the android version (should be an option somewhere).
can u buff alolan raichu in this and normal raichu in eternal x this is my only request
Sure, they could both use better level up moves at least!

Yess thank you Buffel Saft my opinion is to increase alolan raichus special attack by 15 you are really nice that you even responded to my comment
As in an extra 15 special attack on top of the 20 I've already given it? That's a big buff! I probably won't go that far but I guess I could move the attack buff into its special attack instead.

also do u have a discord server
Not at the moment, maybe one day!
When using pkhex im getting the vanilla base stats for pokemon with modified base stats is this normal or did modified base stats get reset?
That's normal. Base stats are stored in the ROM and not the save file, so pkhex gets them from its own copy of the stats file (which doesn't have the hack's changes of course). The game will recalculate stats to match the modified bases once you deposit the edited Pokemon into the PC.

can you give me the latest patched version in which you have made changes to raichu
Sorry I can't do that just yet. Those changes will be in the next update, which won't be for a while. I'm currently working on another hack so I'm only updating this one with bug fixes for now.

Question for you, Buffel:

Will you post any in-progress images of your next hack, maybe on some sort of social media like Twitter or something? It would be nice to occasionally see what you're doing with the hack,
I wasn't planning to but sure, I could do that. There's not much new stuff I can show right now as I'm working on fodder trainers, and they don't make for very good screenshots. I'll sort something out soon though!

In the meantime, the hack's open source so you can see what I've been working on in the commit history if that's of any interest: https://github.com/BuffelSaft/pokeemerald/commits?author=BuffelSaft
