    I rate this, so much. A very mysterious story, uncovering secret pasts sounds very intriguing. I also love your choice of additional pokemon to bring in to the region - a mix of scifi and mythology inspired beasts.

    Your choice of tiles go really well together, and although your mapping style isn't always my cup of tea your maps fit together perfectly - you have a really strong 'look' going on.

    I love the addition of secrets and hidden areas, those kind of extra-bonuses are great as a player (and fun making too, I bet). It adds a bit of authenticity to a ROM-Hack, if it isn't all story-story-story. Every good game needs some exploration and side-quests!

    I look forward to more progress ^_^.

In this way the game would be like Yanma - Hard, Piloswine - Medium, Tangela - Easy having a base 100 Sp. Attack and 115 Base Defense at that...
      Yeah, as I said, they're not final, I'll probably change them.

Good luck on this ( and I hope you'll get back to Cobalt sometime I really liked it too )
      Thanks! The Four Sages of Orbtus aren't exactly a replacement of the Elite Four, though.

      Really looking forward to this hack because of the mystical themes. There's a lot of potential to the story. How much of the story is complete, just wondering?

      Best of luck! Hope you finish it. :)
      Thanks! Quite a lot of the story is planned out in my head, but the hack itself doesn't have much completed yet.

      There is a list of the tools used on the first post.


      I've mostly been working on updating the mechanics to that of Generation 6's, which includes implementing the Generation 4 physical / special / status split, Fairy-type, decapitalisation, new moves, etc. Have some screenshots:


      Of course, most of this isn't really my work, so credit goes to DoesntKnowHowToPlay, Darthatron, Choas Rush and all of the other contributors to The DS-style 64x64 Pokémon Sprite Resource for their respective work.

        Haha, I'm glad to see you're excited. Thanks!

        Anyway, this is just a small update to showcase the extended Pokédex and new moves I've been implementing:



        (If it's of any interest to you, those are custom Pokédex entries. Turtwig likely won't be available in Celanto Town, either.)

          There's the "infrastructure" (for want of a better term) for more than 712 Pokémon, so that I can retain their proper National Dex numbers. As for how many Pokémon will actually be available? Well, I'm not sure, but this spoiler lists ones I'm confident are appearing (this is nowhere near comprehensive, it's just ones that definitely will):

          Spoiler:
          Yanmega
          Tangrowth
          Mamoswine
          Turtwig line
          Chimchar line
          Piplup line
          Snivy line
          Tepig line
          Oshawott line
          Chespin line
          Fennekin line
          Froakie line
          Regigigas
          Golett line
          Sigilyph
          Elgyem line


          As well as some Fairy-types.

            This just shows a small ASM routine I wrote which allows you to view the Ancient Tablet a little closer. For now, it's kind of redundant, but it was mostly an exercise for me to practice displaying images with swi 0x12. Thanks to daniilS for the general guidance and for putting up with my stupid questions.


            This is a sneak peek of Phoena Tunnel, the first cave of the hack.

            In non-screenshot news, I've also got cries to work for the Generation 4, 5 and 6 Pokémon, and I have been inserting them as their Pokémon are added. All in all, things are coming together nicely!

              Me neither!

              Progress is still being made, albeit slowly: I've recently made an aggregate image of all of the maps so far and ironing out any inconsistencies, as well as planning good places to add extra content. I also finally got around to inserting all of the updated sprites, and have started to map out Aerlic Valley and Aerlic City. Take a look!

                I can't stop looking at your screenshots. The maps are spot on. Love the kinda Nintendo style with your own things. Really, best looking hack out there. If only I could still hack..apart from mapping haha.
                Amazing!

                  This project looks very intriguing, interesting choice of starters too! Will definitely keep watching this one, good luck with this. :)

                        This looks very promising. Can't wait to have a crack at this. I was thinking that you could incorporate a partial nuzlocke to make things more challenging, whereby a pokemon on fainting cannot be immediately revived but needs to spend some time in "recuperation' before being used again.

                        Amazing!

                        Technically, all 712 Pokémon are in the ROM, but only a handful from each generation will actually be obtainable. That does include some Generation 6 Pokémon, though, so don't worry.

                        Thanks! I'm working on it, hopefully a release will come soon (not that soon).

                        Thank you! A nuzlocke mode would certainly be interesting, though for now I'm going to concern myself more with getting the regular hack finished first. In the future, though, it would be an interesting feature to implement and would definitely test my abilities. Thanks for the support!

                        In terms of hacking, Gaia hasn't seen much measurable progress recently, and most of what I have been doing is slightly adjusting and reorganisating some maps to make the region flow more cohesively and, in some cases, logically. This has led to Celanto Town (and some other maps, albeit to a lesser extent) being remade, and I think the result makes them look far better:


                        I have also been expanding Phoena Tunnel, so this will delay progress a little bit as it means I won't be able to go on to work on Aerlic Valley and Aerlic City for a little longer. This is only a minor setback though, and it is a necessary "evil" as, prior to this, it simply made no sense, geographically. The way it is now also extends the game a little bit, and, in my opinion, makes the world seem more fleshed out, so it's definitely an improvement. I'm working hard, though, and new content will be on its way soon!

                          Have you completed the storyline? I hope there will be lots of side quests/sub plots. I love all that sort of thing. I have come up with an interesting idea for a side plot if you'd care to hear it?

                            No worries, Ice. Like with all hacks, time and patience are needed for the full enjoyment of the creations and brain-children of wonderful people like you ^^

                              I like the tablets and how they're displayed on the overworld. Relicanth and Tangrowth are interesting choices so far, really interested to see what other Pokémon may be on them and their relevance.

                              The story is somewhat "complete", in that I know in my head what the direction will be but nothing (past what I have scripted, at least) is set in stone or written down yet. I'm open to ideas, though, so feel free to share any concepts or ideas you have, particularly for side-plots (which, yes, there will be many of, hopefully)!

                              Thanks! The tablets and the Pokémon they depict do have relevance to the story, and it will all be made clear in-game.

                              I'm still working on minor things, like last time, but I do have a small demonstration of Rock Climb working (as well as of Bidoof, I suppose):
