    POKE'S BIZZARE ADVENTURE



    Like any great story, it starts with a fever dream. A voice...
    it's saying something... get a Pikachu.
    But not any Pikachu.
    The best Pikachu around.

    Thankfully, it just so happens, that a trainer called Leaf, just beat the Pokemon League recently, with a Pikachu. If you can get to her, you could be able to take the Pikachu she has.
    So you go get your very first Pokemon, and the quest to get the Pikachu begins!

    But looks like some people are after your Pokemon. They can be up to no good...


    Features:

    The hack is not meant to be taken as a basic Pokemon game. The hack is more like a mini challenge run. A black out means a game over, and Pokemon Centers and Boxes cannot be used but the game will be relatively short, so it isn't too punishing.

    The hack is not too punishing with PP. It can be beaten by barely using any elixirs or ethers or none at all, depending on how many trainers you battled.

    It is not recommended to battle every trainer you come across, but you should still battle some, for the Exp. and the money.

    There is also the Dragon Tamer Trainer class in the game. These trainers are meant to be stronger than other trainers, but they give out more money than the usual trainer. It is recommended to train up a bit, before battling them.



    Also a little hint: Buy Soda pops. A lot of em.

    More compact list of features:

    - An overworld Pikachu sprite. How Gnarly Tubular Rad!
    - Only one starter: A Furret,
    - Two possible endings, depending on your actions in the game,
    - No gym battles (well, maybe some, but they are not your main focus),
    - Start at Celadon City and venture through slightly modified Kanto,
    - No Pokemon catching,
    - No Pokemon Centers / Healing at mom's house or anywhere really (Spend money carefully for Potions and TMs and conserve PP),
    - Revives are more expensive, making fainting much more punishable
    - Black out means a game over (but the game will be relatively short),
    - Some wild Pokemon can rarely hold pretty good items, which can be stolen with Thief or Covet,
    - Only a select few Pokemon are avaliable, as gifted Pokemon.

    Bugs/ errors:

    If you find any major / softlocking / game breaking bugs, please report them.
    Also report, if you find a way to find any Pokeballs or Escape ropes, as they are not inteded to be avaliable (Escape rope can bug out a certain area of the game)

    -Berry icon graphics can be messed up
    -When near a wall in S.S. Anne, an arrow can be pointing downwards, to indicate there is an entrance, even though there is none.
    -Some text is unedited and makes no sense in the context of the hack (some text, when you get a game over, in battle text of some trainers, one ending has some unedited text)

      UPDATE

      Added a new trainer class: A poacher. These guys are after your Furret, as its fur can be sold for quite a high price. They do play quite a big part in the story.

      Spoiler:


      Also a new team member can be found in Lavender town, that can be quite useful, as it learns many support moves to help on this tough hack.

      Creative player name strikes again.

        UPDATE

        Added yet another trainer class (well at least one, that wasn't in the original game)



        Yep. This is a Dragon Tamer. Might make a male counterpart and maybe edit the overworld sprite, but don't take my word for it.

        They can be encountered pretty early in the game and are optional to battle. They have quite a higher level than other trainers in the same route, and focus on mainly dragon types. And let me tell you. Early game dragon rage is the most evil thing ever. One Dragon Tamer can easily kill a run of the game, if fought too early, but you get a good amount of cash if you win. And since cash is quite scarce in this game, you bet it can come in handy.

          Quite the original story you´re building here man,You get me excited for it!
          It is the first time I´ve seen Furret as a starter on a pokefangame,THe major of times guys prefer overpowered ones(Larvitar,dratini...)but I prefer your idea by far even if you put a senret as starter it would be cool too.

          Of Course I encourage you to continue and you can count with my constant support :)

            If anyone is looking for beta testers to test out this game, I would love to test it on my GBA. Let me know if that's possible I can do that and I'll be happy to test it out and give positive feedback.

              The hack is progressing kinda slowly for now.
              Well, I may release a playable version in some time, but the game will be extremely short and the beta may be even shorter, so don't expect a beta, until the game is almost completely finished. Also, I need to spend some time on balancing, since grinding is really not an option in the hack.
              I will release a beta version in an undefined amount of time, so I can hear some complaints about difficulty or bug reports.

                UPDATE

                What's up pimps and players. Back at it again with another update.

                This update is really small. Just here to say that the whole map of the game has been made. In theory, all that needs to be changed is text and trainers, but probably more things that don't come to my mind at the moment.

                Well, might as well give you something to look at. The spoiler shows you the Game Over screen, and the map of the game. You can also view the new gimmick of the game.

                Game over screen:
                Spoiler:
                GAME_OVER.PNG
                If all your Pokemon faint, you will be greeted with a Wigglytuff in a room with no way to exit it. Why Wigglytuf?
                Well, why not? The sign in the room just says "GAME OVER".


                Game map (the in game map will still be unchanged, but maybe there won't even be a way to view it):
                Spoiler:
                Map.png
                This is still the same old Kanto but with a few tweaks. Some roads are blocked off or unacessible ( crossed with black stripes), there are some new ways to traverse the region and you may see,
                that there is one "new" location.


                A new gimmick, if you care about it:
                Spoiler:
                Since the game doesn't give you all the resources, that the usual Pokemon hack gives you,
                this gives me a chance to make a new mechanic, that is not in many other hacks.
                Multiple endings.
                By having certain Pokemon, that have a certain HM, you can access different areas, that lead to a different ending. The game will have two endings, but once you choose one, you won't be able to visit some areas in the other endings. This gives the game some replayability. I will try to make the endings choice seem natural, but we will see, how this comes around.

                  UPDATE

                  Well, I finally made the title screen.


                  The Poke kid's official name is gonna be "Poke". Not as unoriginal as "A", but it's something. It's mostly so the name can fit in the title screen. he he xd

                  I am also making some changes to the sprites in the end credits, but I'd rather not show it. You'll see it for yourself, when you beat the game.

                  There is also something that you might don't wanna get yourself spoiled, if you really care, but since you haven't played the hack yet, you probably don't, but whatever:
                  Spoiler:

                  MEGA RAD.png

                  There is only one mega you can get in the game. But what is it? Is it good? Is it trash? Is it Dunsparce?
                  Find out in the next exciting episode of Mega Stone Z. Actually, no. You'll just have to find out for yourself, but it is a Fan-made mega, not an already existing one.

                    UPDATE

                    This time, I can reveal you the intro to the game. Let's just say... It's unique... I guess...

                    Spoiler:

                    The text at the beggining describes the type of game you will be playing. Just some notes and hints.
                    1.png

                    Like any good story, it starts with a fever dream.

                    Creative player name strikes once again.
                    14.png

                    I decided to change the champ from Red to Leaf, just to spice things up a bit.

                    17.png

                    Let's just say that the Wigglytuff is your inner voice throughout the game.
                    Now go get that Pikachu!

                      Looks like a pretty cool and unique intro. Are you planning to release it sometime this week?

                        It may be possible, that a beta will come out quite soon. I just don't wanna make promises, since I'm afraid that I won't keep them. I could "potentially" finish the game tomorrow, but I would probably forget to include many things in it.

                        Of course, I also have to do some test runs and balance some things.

                        I would assume, that the beta will come out in less than 2 weeks, but don't get anxiety if it doesn't.

                          Beta version is released, which is basically the complete version, but might contain some bugs that I couldn't find by myself.

                          Also the first post has been edited to be more detailed.

                              Just a heads up to everyone who is playing this hack.

                              Turns out, that if you black out any time after defeating a gym leader, you will appear in the Leader's city Pokemon Center. Exiting that Pokemon Center could cause some glitchy behaviour, usually resulting in the player getting stuck in a wall (which is good, since the player should not be able to progress further, after losing a battle), but I won't bother testing all the Pokemon Centers, since this is obviously not intended, so I'll just fix all of em'.

                              So far, it doesn't seem to be game breaking.

                              When the hack update rolls around, I'll make sure that this either doesn't happen, or I'll make some workarounds so exiting the Pokemon Centers just leads you to the Game Over room.

                              Thank you for your atenttion, and for playing he he xd

                                UPDATE

                                The final release is out. Just some bug fixes, no changes to levels or difficulty.

                                All the fixes can be found at the download link for the final version.

                                Some things are still not fixed (some minor text, berry graphics and S.S. Anne entrance arrows), but they are extremely minor and don't really matter that much.

                                The main thing for the patch is really the Game Over fix, so it feels more polished.
