Heya again o/ So I was playing the rom from the start again (lost save file due to pc needing factory reset) and I realized that Wurmple still evolves at "random" to Cascoon or Silcoon. So a suggestion I have for the hack is to make Wurmple evolve to each form by some different method. I don't know which method would be best tho >.< Also, not sure where else to ask this so might as well ask here: How is your Emerald hack comming along? Last time I remember you talking about it, I was like "This will be awesome, can't wait for it be released!" in my head xD
Hey! Yeah I haven't updated this hack except for fixes in quite a while, so that sort of thing hasn't been changed. I think it was decided that level up during the day for Silcoon and night for Cascoon was the best alternative method. Could also make it Sun Stone and Moon Stone but keep the regular method too.

Version one of my Emerald hack's pretty much done, just need to finish the documents and fix some bugs (someone broke Castform and Cherrim a while back so I'd like to fix those before release). If all goes well it'll be ready to go in the next two or three weeks.

There's a bug with the mythical move tutor in Hano Grand Resort, I had a Keldeo in the lead slot, catching it via Island Scan, and he doesn't recognize me as having Keldeo so I can't teach it Secret Sword.
That tutor will only teach Secret Sword to fateful encounter Keldeos. Sadly there's no way for me to make the one you get in the hack a fateful encounter, so that can't be fixed. I'll add Secret Sword to Keldeo's level up moves at some point to get around that.

What's your team? Slowpoke's got bad special defense, so hitting it with super effective special attacks is the fastest way to deal with it. You can get Electroweb and Shock Wave from the Melemele move tutor, though you might not have anything that can learn those.
My team is Brionne lvl 27, Noibat lvl 22, Sneasel lvl 17, Quilava lvl 27, Buizel lvl 22 and Ivysaur lvl 20.

Not sure why I cannot beat this guy. His slowpoke is so op and just frustrating.

Guess who's playing this game again oops. I swear whenever I get bored, I just go back to this. It has such a good balance and fun variety of Pokemon, its easy to come back to.


Anyways I noticed that Mime Jr. and Mr. Mime respectively don't learn a single offensive fairy type move at all by levelup, which I find... really surprising. Literally nothing- not even something basic like Fairy Wind.
It gets Dazzling Gleam via TM, but that's all the way in Poni Canyon! Its actually quite baffling, especially from a vanilla standpoint.. Gamefreak REALLY didn't add a single fairy move to its learnset haha??

Anyways, maybe you could give it like Disarming Voice early on, and something stronger later on? Even if it's just Dazzling Gleam at 44 like in SWSH, that'd be better than nothing.
Could even add Moonblast or Draining Kiss to its arsenal, perhaps.


Also apparently I never got back re: the bugged level. Never thought about the bubbling spots having higher levels lol, my bad!

Ah I can see why, most of your Pokemon only have physical attacks this early on so they'll have a hard time breaking through Slowpoke. You could probably stall it out with Sleep Powder and Leech Seed on Ivysaur if it still has those moves?

Haha, glad you're still enjoying it!

Yeah that's pretty bad. It made sense in XY as Mr. Mime had no room for more level up moves, but there's no such limit in gen 7. Just Game freak doing their thing I guess? Not sure why it doesn't get Moonblast, it's not like Togekiss where there's a clear balance reason for not having it.

I really wanna give this hackrom a try on my 3ds. It looks really cool! What's the latest version though?
Thanks! Latest version is whatever it says at the top of the first post (IIRC it's 2.36).
Umm something seems wrong with my game, everything seems to be working fine except the wild encounters.
i keep encountering normal pokemon from ultra sun. been trying for an hour haven't found a single new mon
Any idea how to fix this?
First thing to do is check that the wild encounter file has been installed. Go the 00040000001B5000/a/0/8/ directory and check that there's a file there named "2". It should be around 460MB.

yes seems like thats the problem, I checked the directory you mentioned but there was no file name "2" but there's a file named "3" . Its missing I guess, what should i do? should i try extracting the rebalanced zip file again?
EDIT : I tried extracting the zip file again but there's still no file named "2" in the directory you mentioned.....

Rename the "3" to "2", must be an an issue with the files on google drive. The file name is different between versions, and occasionally a version ends up with the wrong file. I'm not sure how though as it's named correctly in my local copies.

Edit: I've just downloaded both versions of Photonic Sun and they both have the a/0/8/2 file, did you definitely download the files for Sun and not Moon?

umm, I'm pretty sure I downloaded the ones for sun not moon cuz when I started the game it said welcome to "photonic sun" not prismatic moon.
anyways I'll try what you said and tell you if it works..

Edit : It worked! thank you so much!
