    This is 90% a compilation of a few ROM hacks and 10% changes and bugfixes, partially the goal here was to make the game feel like you don't need to cheat to get both bikes, all the TMs or use wild Pokemon modifiers.

    Current Version: 4.8

    List of features include:
    Physical/Special Split with icons (thanks to DoesntKnowHowToPlay)
    Alternate starters (Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Treeko)
    National Pokedex enabled from the start
    All 386 Pokemon are available through catching/breeding and in-game events, all event items available at Lilycove mart (Don't know the author of this part, if you do, please let me know!)
    Trade evolutions changed to stones or levelup (all evolution stones available at Lilycove mart)
    TM's are reusable and most are now purchasable through various Pokemarts
    HM moves are eraseable
    Running allowed indoors
    Visual day/night cycle (thanks to prime-dialga) [this feature is optional!!]
    Changes to learnsets to include FR/LG only moves (for example Nidoking now learns Megahorn like he would in FR/LG)
    Both the Mach and Acro bikes are available to purchase at the Mauville Pokemart (I hate switching between them)
    Move Tutors are now reusable
    Catching Pokemon gives experience
    EVs are capped at 252
    The in-game time can now be changed (activated next to Shoal Cave to allow easier access to both tides) this doesn't affect the Day/Night cycle because it is tied to your system time [thanks to Chaos Rush]
    The entire Safari Zone is open from the start and it provides you with the PokeBlock case
    The fishing system is now much easier to deal with, hitting 'A' too early or too late won't lose the pokemon on the hook and you only ever get one "Oh! A bite!" message (Thanks to DizzyEgg)
    Mirage Island always spawns
    The summary screen now has stats affected by natures color coded (Red for increased stat, Blue for decreased stat) [Thanks to DizzyEgg]

    Planned Features:
    Improvement to non standard Emerald Legendaries such as Zapdos or Entei, they are currently spawning like regular wild pokemon in a specific location.
    Make optional IPS patches for having 1st, 2nd, or 3rd gen starters

    Programs used:
    Lunar IPS
    Advancemap
    Pokemon Game Editor
    Universal Pokemon Randomizer
    HxD
    Free Space Finder
    THUMB Editor and Assembler

    Here's the link for the latest version:

    Looks like you have the five posts you need now, so go ahead and add whatever is needed.

    If you can't add a particular link or image just PM me what you want added and I can edit it in.

        Some fun updates, move tutors are now reusable (they say that they can only be used once, just ignore that) and catching pokemon now gives experience! A great addition to a 386 patch in my opinion, not that you'll need more motivation to catch 'em all!

          I really want to try out your hack but everytime i try to extract the Rar file it says "No Archives found" or something to that extent.

            I just tested the download link and extracted it myself with no problem, if you want I can send you the files individually, there's three IPS files to choose from, one with the Day/Night Cycle, one with it not affecting battles, and one without. Which one do you want?

              The one where it doesn't affect battles would be good.

                I sent you a message earlier with a link and it has all the IPS files, did you get it?

                      I appreciate seeing a hacker who understands that not everyone wants DNS haha.

                        Seems pretty obvious to me, I think it's a cool system but not everyone will feel the same way about it as I do

                          Some optional features I have been toying around with:
                          Ability to change the ingame time (the Day/Night cycle is tied to your system time and that's why I haven't put it in)
                          Berries in Pokemarts
                          Removing Badge requirements for HMs (this seems to be toeing the line for me since I want this ROM hack to feel like an enhanced vanilla)

                          I would love to hear people's thoughts on these and I am open to suggestions as well

                            Some small updates today, EVs now capped at 252, removed the "Can only Be Taught Once" warning from move tutors, added an option to change in-game time next to Shoal Cave (I hate waiting for the tides), Entire Safari Zone is open from the start and the clerk provides you with the PokeBlock Case (that always annoyed me, as soon as you find it you have to fetch the case)

                                There is a patch of grass to the north (surf required)

                                  Probably my favorite update so far, improvements to the fishing system. If you're like me, you HATE how annoying fishing is, hit 'A' too early? Try again. Too late? Try again. And make sure you do this little minigame about six or seven times in a row just to find another Tentacool. But no more! Now it only has to be done once and you can't cause the pokemon to flee by pressing too early or too late!
                                  Also I have added a clock next to Shoal Cave so you can see where to change the time, it looks out of place and I might try to change it to a sundial or something but I'm not planning on it just yet.

                                      This is the hack that I've been waiting for. Not much crazy changes. Everything to make my Pokemon Emerald experience the greatest. I really don't know what's more needed except to add all 807 Pokemon. Other than that, I'll be having a good time with this hack. ;)

                                      Great job!

                                        Thank you! I set out to make this basically the ultimate Emerald experience (hence the admittedly ostentatious name) so I don't know If I'll set out to include all 807 pokemon, might look into updating moves and abilities since there's a lot of fun ones in later gens. I'm glad you like what I've done, always open to feedback and criticism!

                                          Made Mirage Island spawn every day and added static encounters for the legendary birds and dogs.
                                          Unfortunately there's a few bugs now, IDK why but the bags for Pokeballs, TMs, and Berries have a visual glitch but this doesn't affect gameplay luckily. The other bugs are the static legendary encounters I've added do not despawn after battling them which is not BAD but thematically annoying.
                                          Because of this, I have kept the previous link for v4.6 which has everything but the additional static encounters (for example Mirage Island will still spawn every time)

                                            Decided to take out the static encounters for the legendary dogs and birds until I can get it working right. Also added a nifty feature, the summary screen now has stats affected by natures color coded (Red for increased stat, Blue for decreased stat)

                                              Between Emerald Advanced and this... I'm going to play both, very likely, but I'm not sure yet which one is better. Both sound very tempting. Going to wait until you fixed the bugs though.

                                              I might monotype it too for fun.

                                                Currently no bugs in it, removed the feature that was causing them until I can debug it. All 386 pokemon still available and all other features are still present and working properly!

                                                  Oh, nice. Let me just patch it.

                                                  I've been waiting for an Emerald game where fishing is done FRLG style. Trying to Super Rod myself a Corsola or any other rare encounter in the others is such a pain if you get fishing wrong for an hour+ only to find a Wailmer when you finally succeed.
