Pokémon Lilac

Introduction

Hello everybody! After not seriously hacking for the past four or so years I've decided to jump back in to the scene. A couple of old members may recognise the name 'Pokémon Lilac' from an unfinished hack I made back in 2011 that did relatively well, but certainly not up to the standards of many games today. This hack isn't a remake of my old project - It has a brand new setting, characters and story. It only has the same name because its a really good name and nobody has reused it.

Anyway, I hope this new and improved Pokémon Lilac manages to meet your expectations!

Story

It has been ten years since the disappearance of Team Rocket's leader, Giovanni. Its operations in Kanto and Johto have slowly atrophied, as without a firm hand to guide the organisation, it has become a shell of its former self. In what seems like a last gasp before declining into irrelevancy, Team Rocket suddenly bursts on the scene in the scenic Lowen Region, proclaiming a new leader with unknown goals. Their first target? A sleepy farm where a destined child is set to receive their first Pokémon...

Features

  • Brand new maps, tiles and scripts to bring the Lowen region to life
  • 251 Pokémon to battle, collect and evolve
  • New Fakémon to discover
  • The Physical/ Special Split
  • Updated battle sprites and backgrounds
  • 4th Gen style Overworlds
  • New TMs, HMs and Move Tutors
  • Automatic 'set' battles in important situations
  • View IVs at a glance on a Pokémon's status screen
  • Trainers with EVs
  • Many minor quality of life changes

Revealed Fakémon

Recruiting

I'm currently looking for people who know how to do a few niche jobs. If you help contribute to Lilac's quality and progression, I will be eternally grateful and will have something special for you. Currently recruiting:
  • Fakémon cry makers
  • Fakémon spriters
  • Pokémon trainer spriters

Bookmarked this, I think I remember this one from 2013, the name sounds so familiar.

I remember this hackrom. I played the beta released and in my opinion it was a decent hack. It didn't have an impressive graphical enviroment, but now it looks so good and improved. I'm expecting a better experience with this new project.
I'm just a normal romhacker c:

Yes, I was right.

The first version of this game was pretty good, didn't like the cowboy/cowgirl get up however.

Man oh man, it's the rise of the veterans. I'm seeing so many hacks popping back in the secen. First Logan, then Teh Panda and now Dr Fuji! I remember Lilac. The beta was released when I was in school and I was so upset that it was a beta. I'm glad to see it's return now! Hopefully this attempt pulls through the end! Love the new graphics!

A lot of emotions, thought and a bit of nostalgia went into the making of this particular track on the Mixtape.

Hello everybody, I'd like to thank you all for the great responses I've been getting both on and off the forums over the past 24 hours. It really is quite amazing how a hobby can bring everybody together, eh? I've been working on the world map over the past day or so and its looking pretty darn good if I'm allowed to toot my own horn. Expect to see it in the next content update!

hi
go away. re-implementation of the four word rule when?

This is lovely
u 2 <3. Mystic looks lovely as well and I hang on every update, so update again soon please~

Bookmarked this, I think I remember this one from 2013, the name sounds so familiar.
Yes, I was right.

The first version of this game was pretty good, didn't like the cowboy/cowgirl get up however.
The inspiration for the old OW was Indiana Jones because you're going on an adventure but I guess they're cowboys now :D

The game looks fantastic! can't wait for it to be released.
Hopefully you'll be able to wait for a while. Its still quite a way off for any sort of substantial release :P

Hell yeah!
Yeah Hell!

Looks very nice. I'm looking forward to it!
Thank you~

Seven years ago it was pretty good for the time, being a runner-up to Light Platinum in graphics in the 2011 HotY awards. But yes, after coming back to hacking I realised how haphazard it looks compared to many hacks now. Thank you for your kind words and I definitely hope you will have the better experience you want!

We're all so old. I have no idea why we all came back around the same time but I don't think anybody's complaining :P

Thank you and I hope I can pull through to the end without burning out as well!

Hello, this hack is back.
I'll ask you.
Are those 386, 493, 649, 721 or 807 Pokmon?
It has 200 Pokemon from the first 3 generations.

Damn, it looks so amazing...Can't wait for the first release.
Thank you! A lot of hard work has gone into this over the past few months and I'm glad people are just as excited as I am.

Over the past two weeks I finally decided to finalise Lilac's world map after multiple attempts over the past few months. I had been trying to develop a unique style to make it look really cool, but unfortunately I was unable to come up with anything particularly good during all of that time. In the end, I decided to go with an ORAS style which still looks pretty rad imo. I also updated the catch area map in the Pokedex to reflect the new region and aligned all of the routes with a new set of indicators to make it 100% unambiguous as to where you can catch Pokemon.


Some of the sharper-eyed amongst you may have also noticed in my initial bunch of screenshots that the Pokemon Centre and Mart have been combined into one building. Here some screenshots of the new two-tier building.


That's about it for now. I'm still not too far into the project, having only mapped and scripted up to Route 2, but I'm still really pleased with how everything is going so far.

It will be a while before that happens, but thank you!

Do you plan on making tm's reusable?
I'm not 100% decided on this. I'm not a big fan of reusable TMs, but the majority of the community is pretty positive about it. I'll have to give it a bit more time.

Would love to see at least a couple signature fakemon for this hack but other than that it looks awesome.
I'd be down with some good looking Fakemon, but I have zero scratch spriting abilities ;_;

hi
I'm so self conscious about my maps though. I map, then fiddle with them on and off for months at a time.

bye

I'm very excited for this! Looks like a pretty hack and I love when a rom hack includes ivs in the Pokemon screen, a new region, etc.
Thanks! Everybody loves a good overhaul hack~
