    Welcome all to Pokemon Impossible Crystal!

    While the game is not literally impossible, I did make sure to make it extremely challenging. As someone who has played Crystal 20+ times, I always tried to implement new challenges; now I've made a monster. It's safe to say the game is harder than Kaizo, but much more forgiving.

    The hack includes:
    - All Gym leaders and Elite 4 possessing teams of 6 using only the best Pokemon of their respective types and moves.
    - The ability to catch all Pokemon except for Mew, Mewtwo, Celebi, Ho-oh, and Lugia before the League.
    - Universal TM/
    HM compatibility so no limiting yourself when it comes to HM slaves!
    - Since there is
    a lack of physical/special split, many Pokemon have had their stats adjusted to make them mixed attackers or have make better use of their STAB moves (i.e. Sneasel now has better SpAtk than Atk).
    - Several type changes to add variety for trainers as well as to your own roster! These changes include:
    - Golduck --> Water/
    Psychic
    - Farfetch'd --> Flying/Fighting
    - Doduo --> Flying/Ground
    - Dodrio --> Flying/Ground
    - Electabuzz --> Electric/Fighting
    - Magmar --> Fire/Psychic
    - Pinsir --> Bug/Fighting
    - Noctowl --> Flying/Psychic
    - Ampharos --> Electric/Dragon
    - Dunsparce --> Normal/Dragon
    - Granbull --> Normal/Fighting
    - Every single trainer has been edited to be stronger and have better teams overall
    - MOVE CHANGES
    - All multi-hitting (2-5) moves are now 25 BP and Spike Cannon is now Steel-type
    - Strength is now 80 BP Fighting-type
    - Cut is now 70 BP Grass-type
    - Zap Cannon now has greatly increased accuracy
    - Fire Spin is now 70 BP while keeping the same effect
    - Leech Life is now 60 BP
    - Outrage is now 120 BP
    - Dragonbreath is now 80 BP
    - Triple Kick is now 35 BP
    - Swift is now Steel-type
    - Mud Slap is now 40 BP
    - Octazooka is now 110 BP
    - Giga Drain is now 75 BP and 10 PP
    - Dynamicpunch now has greatly increased accuracy
    - Rock Smash is now 40 BP

    Be sure to give any feedback and edit suggestions as well as bugs! Good luck and remember, it's not literally impossible!
    Screenshots---



    EDIT: Girafarig was not in the game before so it has now been added through NPC trade. Some minor tweaks to Pokemon stats and moves to increase usability.

    KNOWN BUG(S)! - Officer Dirk on route 35 (I believe) and the night lady on Route 39 are glitched and will cause the game to freeze. I don't know why leave me alone

      First suggestion; lose the gbc file on the attached files. It is forbidden to share the rom directly. Change it into a patch file either .ips or .ups (idk the difference lol)

                The rules "strongly recommend" "at least two" screenshots. And it would be nice to see a preview of just which Pokémon and levels the leaders have. Or a Pokédex location map of some newly-available species.

                      Host your images somewhere like Imgur or Google Drive that allows hotlinking, and then put this in your post:

                              Yes! The game is fully edited (spare a few wild spots) so all the trainers are edited! I'd like to think Red is particularly hard to deal with ;)

                                  Are you thinking about adding the fairy type to the rom hack?

                                    Definitely not any time in the near future.

                                        But that takes the fun out ;)

                                        I'll let you know though: Falkner, Bugsy, Whitney, and Pryce are notably hard. You're gonna want a Sneasel for Falkner imo.

                                              Is there a doc or list of pokes with adjusted stats?

                                                There is not. However, All Pokemon have had their stats adjusted to better adapt them to battling.

                                                Examples:

                                                Sneasel is a Physical Attacker with STABs that are both Special; so I made it's SpAtk higher to compensate while leaving its Atk the same.

                                                Gengar is a Special Attacker but Ghost moves are Physical, so I upped its Atk.

                                                No Def/SpDef changes were made except to Blissey's Def to make it harder to deal with in battles. Let me know if you have anymore questions :)

                                                    Thank you so much! Unfortunately, there are only gen 1 and 2 Pokemon (for now). And if I remember, fire stones are in Violet City's mart or Goldenrod's/
