    Basic Information

    Name: Pokemon: Ash's Quest
    Hack of: Fire Red
    Author: ice_nine

    Overview

    The first season of the Pokemon anime was very popular, and I’ve seen numerous attempts at a full hack that recreated those events.

    Pokemon: Ash’s Quest is a complete translation of every important event from the first 82 episodes into an Advanced Hack. Everything you can think of – A.J.’s Gym, the School of Hard Knocks, the banned episodes, the singing Jigglypuff, the Pokemon League tournament – that you wish they would have included in the original games this hack has.

    There are NO random trainers or wild Pokemon. I’ve done extensive research and taken some otherwise unnoticeable details from the show to ensure that everything in this hack relates directly to the anime.

    Of course, several things – receiving the three starters, the St. Anne saga, the Sabrina arc - will play a prominent role and involve a complex series of events, but I’ve made sure every episode is represented as much as possible.

    When playing, just remember that this is what you’d have expected Gamefreak to have made if the games were based off the show, instead of the other way around. That said, longtime players who remember the anime can play it for nostalgia, while newer players can play it as a sort of “significantly updated” Fire Red.

    Bugs and other Problems (Original Version Only - Fixed Version does not have these Problems)

    When entering the St. Anne, enter through the right or center space, otherwise you'll end up directly at Porta Vista. This will be fixed into the updated version.

    After the St. Anne events, there is no way to return to Cerulean/Vermillion without Rock Smash. Thus, you MUST get the Squirtle before boarding. This will also be changed.

    There seems to be a bug in the first round of the Indigo Plateau, where you are unable to battle the Trainer. Thus, this hack ends there. The next version (coming out very soon) will rectify this.

    In Cerulean City, you MUST enter the gym and watch the show before battling Daisy, or else the Gym will remain empty.

    Special Thanks

    I don't consider myself an expert mapper or spriter yet, so I'd like to thank the following for helping in some areas where this hack lacks.

    112395: mapping improvements
    dragoon3: sprites
    tandrone2: video walkthrough

    FAQ

    A complete video walkthrough for this game is available - my friend tandrone2 has posted a 52-video series of the whole game on Youtube titled "Pokemon - Ash's Quest".

    Release

    As far as I’m concerned, this hack is complete. I’ve tested it several times, but if there are still any bugs, I will fix them and try to release an edited version. The original plan was to incorporate the Johto seasons as well, but I’m still undecided about that, so don’t count on any more updates.

    Edit: The FIXED Version of the game is now available for download. It has cleared all of the gameplay bugs of the original, but otherwise retains the same aspects.

        Very nice, judging from the screens.

        However, I didn't see Misty or Brock anywhere...have you included them? (or are you in the process of putting them in?)

        Second of all, you could do a slight recolor of the FR boy sprite to make a more realistic looking Ash, but that's just me.

        Third of all, is the hack complete or still in progress? I'd like to know a specific completion level.

        Wow! A completed hack in the Scrapbox! I know you put lots of effort into this and you probably worked on it for a long time. Nice work.

          As I said, I probably won't be adding Johto, so the hack is essentially finished, with all the Kanto events I've planned.

          I'll probably released an updated version over time with some of the requested changes (Ash sprite, etc.)

          As for Misty and Brock (and Team Rocket), I decided it would be too much of a hassle to put them in constantly. For this hack, I focused on the specific events of each episode, so I inserted them in events sometimes when appropriate. They appear several times throughout, but aren't a critical part of the storyline.

            I have Ash sprites you can use. (A whole bunch that I made) If you need them, PM me.

                I have one question, ice_nine!

                After you battle Gary the 2nd Time, and do the following events:
                Battle Daisy
                Catch a Krabby
                Meet Bill
                Receive Bulbasaur in Hidden Village
                How do you battle the gym? I can't find Misty.

                  Thank you for answering my questions. I just may test your heck out and see if I have any more questions.

                            Wah, the only picture I recognize is the Bridge Bike Gang one, only episode I recognize. Oh well. Did you redo the maps? Some look the same(as FireRed), are they?

                                    After you battle Gary the 2nd Time, and do the following events:
                                    Battle Daisy
                                    Catch a Krabby
                                    Meet Bill
                                    Receive Bulbasaur in Hidden Village
                                    How do you battle the gym? I can't find Misty.

                                    Once you defeat Daisy, the show in the Cerulean Gym should be over and you should be able to challenge the Gym Leader. If you're stuck in the northern part (with Bill and Damien), talk to Bill and he'll take you back to Cerulean. Still, this sounds weird (though it never happened while I was testing) so I'll go through it once again and post an update soon.

                                    can you give us more details about the pokemon league
                                    Just like in the show, there are preliminary rounds (that take place in separate field arenas) and the final rounds (starting from the Round of 16). The only major functional difference between this and the Elite Four is that once you lose you cannot challenge again (obviously).

I placed wild Pokemon in areas where the anime showed there were wild Pokemon (Sandshrew, Paras, Zubat, and Clefairy lived in Mt.

                                        Ok, well, I figured I'd comment now that I just beat Misty and entered the Hidden Village. So far, you have put in something from every episode, but it still doesn't really feel any different than Fire Red at all. I'm just simply rushing through things to see what you did for a certain part in an episode (I love the first season, I know about all of it). But some of the events were honestly kind of lame, like the Spearow one, or the Brock part with Flint. You could have done so much more. Also, there are many mapping mistakes so far.

                                          If there are no random trainers to battle, won't it be hard to make your pokemon strong?
