Hi All. Once again, I have created a Pokemon hack that aims to balance the game. If you aren't familiar with some of my previous hacks simply look up Pokemon Balanced Edition and they will appear. The features in this hack are similar, but I will list them so that newcomers can see if this balancing concept appeals to them.

1. All 387 Pokemon are available,easier to catch, hold items more often, and give more Experience.
2. Honchkrow has been added to the game.
3. All Pokemon have revamped movepools, abilities and a BST(Base Stat Total) of 600.
4. All Pokemon have had their original Generation 3 Sprites and Icons replaced with newer ones, courtesy of MrDollSteak's Sugimori Pallete's Sprite Resource.
5. New Pokedex Entries have been added for Generation 3 Pokemon.
6. A few Pokemon have been re-typed, and Trade Evolutions have been removed.
7. Trainers are somewhat more difficult and their teams have more variety. They also give out more Money upon Defeat.
8. Moves have been revamped. Weak Moves like Ember now have priority like Quick Attack, Multi-hits deal more damage, Dragon type moves often have a low chance of inflicting either a burn, paralysis, or freezing, etc.
9. Pokemon Types have been revamped, Ice types have been buffed. Ice now resists Grass, Flying, and Normal types. Poison type moves are now super effective against Water types.
10. EV Training Spots have been added to the game:

I love the Steel/Dragon typing for Tyranita. I was dying to see someone implement this retyping for pseudo legendaries. There are some other interesting typings as well. I would love to see Fire/Water typing too. However, I am not sure how much the game dynamics will change by giving every Pokémon 600 BST. May be you should reserve this 600 BST for the final evolution only. You have not given any special typing for jhoto starters, why so?

I actually did create a hack where only the final evolutions had the same Base Stat Total years ago. But to me, First and Second Stage Pokemon are so popular, and the Anime promotes them so heavily, that it would be a shame if they weren't good. Most hacks overlook them.

Pokemon Emerald Balanced actually does have a Water/Fire type, Octillery. I did this because in the games Octillery can learn Flamethrower and Fire Blast, and also to add more variety to Water Types.

The Johto starters are the only starters in the game who don't have a secondary typing. I wanted at least one trio to be mono typed for the sake of originality, but also for Meganium, Feraligatr and Typhlosion, Mono type fits them well. I can't think of what secondary typing I could give them.

I appreciate your POV. But still I would request you to create an alternative patch with just the fantastic Retypings and no BST changes if it is at all possible. I would really love it bro. But it's just my opinion please do not be offended. There are some modern features like IV perfecter, ability switcher, IV display, EV training spots, HM deletion etc; I wonder if you could implement these features gradually? I would be great if you could pull it off! Also,
Feraligator = Ice/Ground
Meganium = Fairy/Steel
Typhlosion = Electric/Poison with Levitate as ability.
My humble opinions!
Thank you.

What's 100% completion to you? Looks like a promising hack, will check it out soon.

100% Completion of Pokemon Emerald Balanced Edition is:
1.) All 386 (Honchkrow Excluded) Pokemon Caught and Trained to Level 100 within the PC
2.) Each Pokemon must have a Champion Ribbon, A Victory Ribbon, an Effort Ribbon, and a Contest Master Rank Ribbon of any category.
3.) All 7 Golden Battle Frontier Symbols obtained.
4.) Beat the Trainer Hill Once.
5.) Obtain the Silver Shield and the Gold Shield.
6.) Obtain the Glass Ornament.
7.) All 387 Pokemon must have a Champion Ribbon, A Victory Ribbon, an Effort Ribbon, and a Contest Master Rank Ribbon of any category.

The first person to achieve all of this and prove that they did so legitimately, without any sort of cheating, gameshark, etc. will get a 20$ Amazon Gift Card from me. If they are able to record their entire (or at least most) of their playthrough as proof instead (which would save me time) They would instead get a 50$ Amazon Gift Card, or possibly another gift card, maybe Netflix, if they so desire. (I hope Pokecommunity is okay with me rewarding the first player this way O.O)

Hey! So I just came across and wanted to ask if you think this hack is suitable for Nuzlocking. Thank you!
Track Number 2 of my debut Mixtape, Venting Session Vol.1:
What's it like - https://youtu.be/Qxs6shEpHIo
A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

I would think so, the Elite 4 is surprisingly easy, and if you get your hands on 1 or 2 setup sweepers, you're likely to dominate NPCs. My Vigoroth proved that to be true.

Great game though, high replay value simply to try out other pokemon. My team was Vigoroth, Swampert, Alakazam, Sableye, Milotic, and Rayquaza (though I didn't use Rayquaza in the main game). With no grinding and EVs, I swept through Steven's team with just Rayquaza. I think Ancientpower is OP because it 100% raises all stats and that made Rayquaza sweep.

Can I cheat? (i.e. rare candies) I can't seem to find any awesome grinding spot to get everything to Lv. 100, which is proving to be a very daunting task

1-Why not add electivire and magmortar if you added honchkrow? Might aswell add all new evolutions for gen 3 and prior pokemons...

2-One request: can you please make remoraid avaliable earlier? I wanted to use octillery but it only appears in the postgame in the safari zone

3- Is there a list of all level-up move-set changes and move changes you've made somewhere? It's difficult to build a competitive team in this without that information

4-During the 100% challenge, can I trade with other games? And is the speed up button on emulator allowed?
One day I'll have a ROM hack of my own to link here, in the meantime...
Have a good day
