After working on this hack over 2021, I finally finished it! Here it is:
Remixed Red and Remixed Blue
In this hack, I tried to keep the looks and feel of gen 1, while trying to make it more playable, and make more Pokémon viable. I buffed the majority of bad Pokémon. I didn't change gen 1 mechanics, so stuff like 1/255 glitch, no physical/special spilt, and critical hits based on speed still exist.
New types! I added the Steel and Dark types, I dislike the Fairy type, so I didn't add that.
Gym leaders, Rivals and Giovanni buffed! They are jokes in normal Red and Blue, so I buffed them up so they are dangerous.
Moves buffed! Even useless moves are useful now, since you can't view move information in gen 1, I put a text document at the end of this post.
New Moves added to the game! I added new moves, the move list in gen 1 is horrible, and doesn't work with the new types, so I added different moves like Crunch, and Iron Head. While also adding stuff like Bug Bite and X-Scissor.
Pokémon buffed! Some Pokémon are just plain bad in Red and Blue, so things like Farfetch'd got huge buffs! Due to me trying to want to have variety in Kanto, some weird type changes have occurred, but you'll get used to it.
Reuseable TMs! (Don't toss them or sell them though.)
Ghost Type is now Special! Dark Type is now Physical!
All 151 (minus Mew) are catchable, Mew can still be obtained through the Mew glitch.
I guess I'll play Pokemon Red/Blue yet again... Thanks for this.
Have TM compatibilities been altered?
What is Prism Laser?
Update: No it looks like they haven't and that is annoying for some Pokemon. Aerodactyl can't learn Strength or Rock Slide which really hurts him.
No. Outside of Giga Drain, no TM compatibilities/moves have been altered.
Prism Laser is a Psychic Hyper Beam based of the move Prismatic Laser
I will patch this game giving Aerodactyl Rock Slide/Strength as TMs and Rock Slide in it's moveset, seems like a oversight from me.
