I've been medding with this rom since I was nay 15 years of age, and at the age of 20 it's safe to say it's ready for release. I can't code for heck without XSE, and the tools I used to make it are all downloaded off of swampert tools and the like. Don't let that put you off.

This game is well balanced man. The difficulty curve is on point; every one of its 386 obtainable Pokemon has been given a fresh, healthy lick of paint; the world of Hoenn has gotten a dirty great global route makeover, with three or four all new routes and four cheeky puzzle islands to explore on the endless ocean; I've added some grubby looking tiles that count as safe zones in caves where wild pokemon cannot appear; the game's story and route progression's had a few changes; the pokedex has had some bant added, there's a few new moves, two new mons, the trainer battles have been redone, the gyms and E4 are more varied than ever, and (last but not least) you can check the clocks in Pokemarts to get the current time.

Alongside this we have the classic spattering of reuseable tms and move tutors, the physical/special split, BW repels system, ORAS easy berry planting, pokemarts inside pokecenters, and day and night. And a free of charge gym difficulty patch if you feel under-challenged.

This isn't the most unique, up-to-date, or flashy rom, but oh man is it polished!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those affected by Pokemon Emerald 2; The Squeakquel.
"I want entei and raikou" well im sorry to tell you this but the world can be pretty tough on you at times

Secret stuff
Spoiler:

The second bike is located on route 129, on an island to the east. I'm sure you can find it, even though the itemfinder's not picking it up!

Tickets in Mt. Pyre (Ho-oh/lugia), Birch's Lab (Deoxys), Granite Cave (mew), and rt 119 (with cut, lati@s). A guy in slateport makes em work.
You get suicune off steven in mossdeep for beating the champion, rather than beldum, which is in the wild.
i think I removed entei and raikou from some secret new pokemon. I'm really sorry to the fans.
moltres, zapdos and articuno are gifts for beating the HOENN dex (the one with only the 200 basic forms or starter evolutions)
mew breeds with ditto, making mewtwo
Celebi is on rt 104 in a little grove, lv30
!ERROR in VICTORY ROAD: Warp outside of map. This is not a bug, it's actually Bird/Normal.


RECOMMENDED POKEMON LIST
Girafarig, Banette, Sunflora, Grumpig, Smeargle, Eeveelutions, Porygon, Farfetch'd, Ralts, Cacnea, Roselia, Ariados, Geodude, Baltoy, Spinda, Shedinja obviously, Togetic, and honestly, whatever you want, am I right?

BACK AT UNI, IF YOU HAVE ANY BUGS I WILL BE BACK IN LIKE 5 WEEKS

Seems cool. Interesting that this wasn't put into the sideshw showcase. I'll probably give it a try.

Wait, what's the sideshow showcase?
EDIT: Oh, gotcha. Yeah, that is a grey area. It is actually more than just a 386 difficulty patch, I promise! The story progresses through routes in a slightly different order, and like I say, every route and city got a few tweaks, and so did every pokemon. It's like pokemon BW versus B2W2 level of changes.

I do like it overall from the looks of it. Not gonna lie though, while on one hand the move/typing etc changes will make the game fresh but I kinda sorta dislike this as well.
Highly appreciate slight changes in maps and overall higher difficulty. I might try this hack later.

This looks great! you should think about patching in some mega evolutions tho, there are some pretty easy battle engines you can just apply with a patch, but you might have to mess around with offsets since you've already added a bunch of stuff

EDIT: btw, this is gonna get taken down p soon, you're not allowed to link directly to a rom file, you have to link a patch (ips or ups)

Just to warn that there IS swearing in this hack, caught a female Nidoran and it mentions the F word in her pokedex entry.

Why people insist in putting swearing in Pokemon I have no idea, but that's just me.

Imma patch this out, I thought id updated and removed it but apparently not! give me about an hour.
It's oddly funny having to veto a whole slew of my own dex entries for old edgy teen humour

EDIT: FIXED THIS!! ITS RUDE FREE AGAIN LADS

Wow is this polished so far. I'm really enjoying the way you've utilized the basics of the game to the fullest instead of needing to artificially add features or anything like that.

Any hints for the condition for Splash to work?

I'm really sorry to say that Splash's move description of "deals huge damage under certain conditions" might just be a cheeky joke; Splash still does absolutely nowt! Have fun with hoppip!


EDIT: just patched out some expletives I missed. There were never any in the main story text iirc, just in the dex cause it's the oldest. Magikarp is also no longer called magikrap. If you bump into any more, hit me up #KeepThatERating

Dive is on route 135, south of Mt. Pyre on the town map. There's a girl with pink hair who gives it you. Should I put in a few more things pointing to her?

I feel like I might give this a try, if you keep on working on it. I do like difficulty patches and ones with the complete pokedex but I feel like you could try to add more features like mega evolutions or BW repel system which are in a lot of new rom hacks. It does look good though, I have been waiting for some Hoenn updates like a sequel or made in the DS style and this does look like what I've been asking for. You may want to check out Pokemon Ruby 2 and Sapphire 2 in the Progressing Hacks thread.

I agree with BW repels, although I really think the random encounters give routes a lot of feel. It'd be an improvement, though, so I'll probably chuck it in next time I inevitably update lol

I thought about Mega evolutions, and I think they're unnecessary. If I just chuck them in, it'll screw the difficulty unless I put them in postgame, and much as I've done some charming price reductions in the battle frontier I really doubt anyone will keep playing on once they beat wallace!
Then, even if I bash and tweak them into a less powerful shape, it turns out that megas are essentially less fun than a thunderstone evolution. The only difference is that you have to click more stuff in battle and you have less customisation options because your item slot is gone. If I wanted to add in a mega banette, I would instead change banette's base stats and ability, or do it as a moon stone evo. I'm definitely not going to do this, I don't think it adds anything positive.

In my mind, this hack's virtually in it's final state. I might get myself a moves and abilities patch and make use of that, but honestly there's more than enough different strategies to use already, and I don't think it needs more. I also have uni commitments! I'll wait until someone plays it and says it needs more variety.

Give it a shot though, I bet you'll have fun! Thanks a bunch for the recommendation.

EDIT: Credit to danny0317 and Phenom2122, what absolute machines, I now have the full BW repel system working ingame!!!

This looks great, playing it rn on mobile. Is there an extensive list of pokemon, move, and location changes sitting around? It would probably be very useful for people like me who enjoy knowing why you recommend so many normally crap pokemon.

Sorry to be that guy, but I'm pretty sure rattata is spelled wrong in the game as ratatta.

That's an extra old in joke. Is carvanha by any chance spelled carvahna?
EDIT: yep, wow. It is. I never thought anyone would spot that!
it's fixed, but I'm not releasing a patch just yet

It's all finished, right up to the battle frontier working.

<3 Thanks a bunch for the praise my man! I've added a spoiler with all the tickets and in the main post. Happy legendary hunting, and enjoy the battle pyramid!

Porygon -> Porygon2 @lv22
Porygon2 -> Porygon @lv23

What does this mean exactly? Will Porygon2 keep trying to devolve into Porygon at every level or something?

#cybercrime_central on the Nuzlocke Forum Discord server got a bunch of good laughs at your Pokedex entries, thank you so much.

The only issue I see in the screenshots is the blue-roofed gym, which looks ugly as hell. Otherwise, this looks pretty neat! I like how you make the grass bridges. Pretty interesting.

Yeah what's up with that? Been thinking of using Porygon2 in this hack since its one of my fav pokemon but I don't want it to..."devolve" after one level.

Where can you find Porygon anyway? Not sure if I reached that point yet or passed it by mistake.
