    Welcome to the Region of Frejo!



    Info

    This is a hack ROM based on Pokemon Red (USA), the author is 80C, this is his first hack ROM.
    Pokemon Grape's development began in 2012, it had 3 Demo releases, Demo 1 and Demo 2 were released during 2013 while Demo 3 was released on Christmas 2014.
    Each Demo release featured huge differences and improvements.

    This is a Total Overhaul hack that changed drastically the original game almost beyond recognition and it features advanced Assembly Features - most of them have been implemented for the first time in a Gen1 Hack ROM like Physical-Special split attack, new evolution methods etc etc etc.
    Later Gen1 hacks were influenced by this hack as their authors affirmed in various occasions.

    Many events of the game are similar to the events that occur in Pokemon red (although in a different order) but those similarities will be explained later in the game's storyline.
    The hack is pretty hard, especially at the beginning of the game, and the gameplay experience offers way more hours of gameplay than the original Red Version.

    This is the last hack that has been realized with obsolete methods like hex editing etc.
    Many fans considered this hack the "spiritual successor" of Gen1 hacks like Pokemon Brown and Pokemon Team Rocket Edition.
    Indeed, since its first moment Pokemon Grape started as a tribute to the old-fashion and retrò Pokémon Hacks.

    Actually Pokemon Grape is widely considered by both critics and fans around the world one of the best Gen1 hack ever made, it won several prizes during these years, the last Demo release received critical acclaim.

    The hack is about to be ended but there are still a lot of details to be adjusted for the Final v1.0.

    Story

    Region of Frejo, 1999

    The Pokemon League Zone, located on the border of the Regions of Frejo and Kelgo, is famous for being the headquarter of one of the most prestigious Pokémon League, it is an important reference for Pokémon trainers all over the Pokemon World.
    The leaders of these two regions are going to declare war to each other for some unknown reasons.
    Finally, they agree to start a competition, a Pokemon Tournament to decide who among the two will be the owner of this Zone: the competition states that who can gain all the 8 badges of Frejo and defeat the Elite Four will be the owner of Pokemon League Zone.
    In order to create an equal competition they agree on assign a rookie trainer as contender, one per region.

    Unfortunately, before the starting day, some bad guys have destroyed the Pokémon Database located in the Pokémon League Zone. Pokédex data and parameters are now lost. Monetary values and Pokémon trading collapse. Everything is in chaos. To make things worse than ever, some renegades from Team Rocket who had fled the Region of Kanto the previous year after the Silph Failure are compromising this competition with the help of some fanatics who call themselves "The Epsilon Program".

    On the next day, you gain control of your character, Frejo's contender, a former baseball player, his name is Marquis but you can assign him whichever nickname you like.
    His rival and nemesis is a psychopath teenager named Paul that due to some personal issues won't hesitate cheating and dirty tactics. This Paul actually may or may not be the same "Paul" from the Pokémon Anime series.
    These guys are not your generic mute characters from the previous Pokémon games.

    There's also an unknown Pokemon professor put in the competition at the last minute by the Pokémon League: he is Professor Bek, allegedly Samuel Oak's cousin.
    The Professor is supposed to give the contenders an extra task: complete the Pokedex in order to restore the lost Pokemon Database data by collecting every Pokemon specie during their quest.
    This is an extra task that you can either ignore or accomplish, in any case this will decide your ending (Good Ending vs Bad Ending).

    Hurry up or those two regions will not be here anymore.

    Is this supposed to be yet another Pokemon Red hack with the SAME background stuff like Evil Teams, powerful legendaries, secrets, unlockables, rivals and fat guys who love technology?
    Why there's STILL Team Rocket behind this (this time without Giovanni)?
    And who is "Kifflom" and its "Epsilon Program" and what it has to do with Team Rocket and all of this?
    There's really a secret underground passage under Megan City's Museum?
    Is this Hack ROM such good?
    There are really OVER 240 Pokemon species??

    Well, at this point I suggest you to find the answers by yourself by playing the game.


    Demo 3.1 ends after you beat 7 GYMs, obtain 6 Badges and reach Silten City's Train Station, 60% of the Final Game

    Features

    • A completely new Region, Frejo, bigger and better than Kanto, you can travel along Frejo and in parts of other two regions, Kelgo and Altek;
    • Very Improved graphics, there are completely new devamped sprites for each pokemon species and very detailed tilesets;
    • Over 240 different Pokemon Species including Pokemon from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos along with 2 new Fakemon;
    • 10 Extra types: Steel, Dark, Fairy, Atom, Wood, Wind, Gas, Sound, Light and Bone!
    • 70 extra new Moves, including moves that use the new types (at least 3 damage dealing moves for each new type);
    • Extra intro screens before the standard introduction.
    • Physical\Special Split attack - this has been the first gen 1 hack rom with such implementation;
    • New evolution methods adapted from further generation along with new methods of evolution - once again this has been the first gen1 hack rom with such implementation;
    • Custom OverWorlds in the Pokemon menu, one for each pokemon species - uses a different ASM routine from Pokemon Maize and T.R.E. 2;
    • Holdable Items - available in Final Version - once again this has been the first gen1 hack rom with such implementation;
    • Shiny Pokemon - available in Final Version;
    • EXP Bar like in Gen2+ - Thanks to Danny-E 33 for the original asm routine that I later fixed by myself since the original one was glitched.
    • Ice Sliding Mechanics from Gen2 Games;
    • Animated Waterfall mechanics like in Gen2 Games - once again me first!
    • Move Deleter (like in Gen2+ Games) - available in Final Version;
    • Dive Mechanics (working differently form Pokemon Maize) - available in Final Version;
    • Mining System (like in Gen4 Games) - available in Final Version;
    • Damage Counter during battles in Final Fantasy-fashion!
    • New Objects implemented, many of them have even new functions (like the Lighter), some of them are required for evolutions or in-game mechanics - me first once again (I wrote the tutorial that made this possible in other hacks);
    • Running Shoes System + Kart Boost x4 System- actually working differently from Pokemon Brown 2014 with a Different ASM - and it doesn't speed while surfing;
    • Kart instead of Bike;
    • More Fly-able, bike-able, dig-able and teleport-able ambients - me first once again;
    • Medical Kits systems: somewhere in Frejo you can use those lying bags to restore your Pokemon;
    • Traps of various nature in certain dungeons and other places;
    • Post-League quests;
    • Coloured and Shaded Text Font, during battles it isn't coloured - available in Final Version;
    • SideScrolling areas Legend Of Zelda-fashion, there are various sidescrollign areas of different ambients;
    • Secrets, Puzzles, Mysteries to solve and an Item-trading sequence Legend Of Zelda-fashion;
    • Compatibility with Gen1 and Gen2 games (somehow);
    • Nuzlocke-Mode System - available in Final Version;
    • The three legendary dogs running around the Region after a certain event - available in Final Version;
    • Mew under the truck at the Port, along with a custom event involving the truck - available in Final Version;
    • Thousands of humorous references to other Pokémon hacks, to other games, movies, songs and popular colture in general;
    • And more...
    I implemented the Hyper-Flying-Jetpack too but the risk of flying out-of-bounds was too high so I disabled it. Nevertheless, it made it into the game as a cameo.

    Bugs

    I've bug-tested this beta myself with a little help from a few Beta-Testers, but there's always the possibility that The Beta testers missed something.
    If you encounter any bugs, feel free to send me a Private Message.

    This time there aren't fatal Glitches that freeze your game (that aren't already present in the original Pokemon red Version, though you won't find them normally during the gameplay);

    Minor bugs (don't affect gameplay\mechanics):
    *Many Pokemon can learn X-Scissor even if they're not supposed to do so.
    This had been fixed in the final release;
    *Gen3 and Gen5 Pokemon don't have a MiniOW icon in the party pokemon.
    This had been fixed in the final version;
    *3 Pokemon (gastly, Magnemite & Doduo) have glitched backpics.
    This problem was already fixed for the Final release, I'm very sorry about that, adding manually 499 compressed pics is really frustrating and boring, you know.

    NOT BUGS:
    *Sometimes Rustel City's music pitch changes slightly if you re-enter the area. I found this funny and I left it in the game. Yes, the song is "California Gurls" by Katie Perry and Snoop Dogg, thanks to AshAndMisty aka Red for the catchy tune;

    Fixed Bugs originally present in Pokemon Red Version:
    *Focus Energy and Dire Hit are no longer glitched
    *No more glitchy east-coast tile that spawns weird wild pokemon (aka no MissingNo glitch);
    *No Elixier\Ether glitch in case you raise PPs with a PP-Up;
    *After using Transform the palette color will be corrected as soon as you either look at the party pokemon or wait a few turns;
    *No Glitch City :P
    *No Cycling Road Block skipping :P
    *You can't anymore do fishing in the GYM statues;
    *ALL moves have been updated up to Gen6 games, Blizzard has 30% of freezing chance like in the original japanese versions;
    *Solved the so-called "Save Game Oversight" bug involving the Cycling Road;
    *A lot of other minor fixes that actually I don't remember at the moment;

        this looks really nice! It's always interesting to see how much effort is put into these GB(C) hacks. I presume you've implemented a day/night system?

        I don't really care for the sidescrolling feature, but it's nice on its own. Is there trading functionality?

          This looks awesome!

          Question, though, if we play through the Demo and have a save file, will it be compatible with the final version?

            Ok don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing your hack at all, and I haven't really played your hack yet, but saying this hack you released on Pokecommunity a few days ago is considered the best Gen 1 hack ever kinda rubs me the wrong way. It'd be like Gamefreak releasing ORAS and then saying a few days later that fans consider ORAS one of the best Pokemon games in history. Obviously, you released this hack somewhere else a few months ago, but you get my point.

            I'm not saying your hack doesn't have the potential to become one of the best Gen 1 hacks out there, because it probably could become a famous Gen 1 hack. I'd just rather you say stuff like that when you get a bigger fanbase here on Pokecommunity and you can actually back up your statements. Good luck with your hack.

            EDIT: Ok derp, I didn't realize you had another Pokemon Grape thread that got closed. My bad. But I think my point still stands, because I'm pretty sure a lot of people here and in other Internet places haven't heard of this hack.

                80C !!! You've come back!

                I found Demo3 on another site so I've already played most of it.

                THIS IS THE BEST, COOLEST, MOST ENJOYABLE, MOST INNOVATIVE GEN 1 ROMHACK I'VE EVER SEEN!

                PLEASE do not stop developing Pokémon Grape! I LOVE this romhack, 80C. It's beyond impressive for a Gen 1 hack. If there's any romhack I would actually transfer to a cartridge to play on a real GameBoy, this would be #1.

                  Enable visitor messages you bum, I can't reply! Anyway, can I take up your offer of helping me with the ASM in my Red Hack? Currently trying to do something and failing hard.

                  Keep up the good work with Grape though.

                        Some new stuff from the incoming Demo 3.1 (coming out in July\August)

                        Finally a real videogame shop: every mart has been overhauled and now every mart is unique.


                        Here's an update of the "Walking on the railroad is dangerous!" Area, the new palette of colors has been improved.
                        Waterfalls are animated just like in WIZARD PEAK.


                        Fishing in the statues has been completely fixed, you can still surf (and do fishing) on normal water too.


                        New Casino Graphics


                        Another flashforward of Silten City

                        And now ... the demonstration of my new Spritesource (all sprites are 100% mine):

                          Those screenshots look awesome, 80C! Since demo 3.1 will be out in July/August as you say, how complete will 3.1 be? You mentioned before that demo 3.0 was 55-60% of the game... Have you got a percentage for 3.1??

                            Demo 3.1 it's an overhaul of Demo 3.0 and it features some of the latest pubished features (like Ice-sliding, Bone type), somemap redesigns, a new dungeon, some new wild pokemon (this time including even Gen3 Pokemon), a new city and a previously unavailable Gym (the 6th Gym, in Gondwan City); it includes also a lot of fixes for some annoying bugs from Demo 3.0 (expecially the graphical glitches regarding the NPCs' sprites and Party Pokemon's Mini-OverWorld that happens under a particular circumstance).
                            Demo 3.1 features about 60% of the complete game.

                            Savegames from Demo 3.0 are compatible with Demo 3.1.

                            I completed Demo 3.1 yesterday, all I need now is beta-test it and make sure that everything's fine.

                            Now it's "screenshot time".

                            Where am I?


                            Fortunately videogames don't feature an odor option.
                            In any case, if you didn't get a Super Rod don't worry: this is the right place for every aspiring fisherman.
                            And...

                            ...


                            Cool custom graphics as usual.

                            This is is just a portion of what you'll find in Demo 3.1.

                              The palettes, borders, sprites, mapping! Grape looks amazing as usual. Can't wait for Demo 3.1 to be released. Keep up the great work!

                                  Amazing hack, man. It clearly looks like you went all out with this hack, introducing tons of new features that would not have been in the previous games. I do have a few questions, though. First of all, what's this 'Hyper-Flying-Jetpack' you're talking about? Does it really allow the player character to fly around the area? I know you didn't implement it in the end, but I'm still curious - if you DID implement it, it would make your hack revolutionary, I believe. Secondly, why not ditch the Geodudes in the first cave? Since that cave comes just after you get your Level 5 starter (who may very well be a Charmander, and all of who lack elemental STABs at that point anyway), and since Geodudes resist their Normal-type attacking moves, it might be best to ditch them altogether and just keep Zubat and maybe some other relatively weak Pokemon in the cave. Maybe something like Patrat would do, I could see it living in a cave.

                                    Thanks, I appreciate the fact that at least my work on it isn't wasted time.

                                    The Jetpack was simply an object that simulated the "walk through walls" glitch and replaced the player's sprite (like the bike does) but I had to discard it mainly due to the fact that the risk to fly out of bounds was too high.

                                    Actually if you choose Charmander you can grind by defeating Paras, alternatively grind in Route 51 by defeating Oddish or similar wild Pokemon.

                                    In Demo 3.1 there will be a few unseen surprises that I didn't show in the previous screens.

                                      Why does Route 61 have wild Machoke? They're below 20, and it's before the second gym. Doesn't make much sense. Could you replace them with wild Machop?

                                        Some new pre-release screens of what you may find in Demo 3.1:

                                        Finally that GYM is available.


                                        This time I offer a better Pokemon.


                                        Another screen about the revamped Frejon Tunnel. You may find some new and useful items inside.
                                        Ice mechanics from Gen2 have been included.


                                        Everybody forgot about them: they're already available since Demo3, they evolve from Eevee only in a certain area (just like in next-generation pokemon games), many NPCs give you a hint about it.


                                        Finally Quartz Town looks snowy.


                                        A couple of screens from the new location, Silten City.


                                        This screens demonstrates that:
                                        a) I added even Dark Pulse, along with a couple of cool moves from the newest games;
                                        b) Wild Pokemon have been changed in order to make some more sense depending on the area (for example: near the 4th gym which consists primarily of fairy-type you'll find poison-type pokemon in the route nearby, etc.);
                                        c) This hack has great graphics even if it's a Gen1 game :D

                                        If everything proceeds as planned Demo 3.1 will be released this weekend.

                                        This has been fixed in Demo 3.1.

                                        Now wild Pokemon are stronger than in the last beta and they make more sense now.

                                          You nicknamed Bagon "Spyro"? Nice! If only three was a way to play this on colour on my android. Good luck, though!

                                            Demo 3.1 has been released!
                                            The .zip has been updated to the newest version, the link remains the same.
                                            New features include:
                                            • Bone type: Bone type Pokemon are: Cubone\Marowak (pure), Goldeen\Seaking, Rhyhorn\Rhydon\Rhyperior, Rapidash, Mamoswine, Donphan (2nd type);
                                            • A new GYM (6th Badge) in Gondwan City (you need to SURF to reach the Gym);
                                            • A new city (Silten City), the dungeon located in there is blocked but you can visit its 1st floor and some interiors;
                                            • Completely new Pokemon sprites and updated SuperPalettes and graphics;
                                            • Gen3 and Gen5 Pokemon available;
                                            • Ice Dynamics in the revamped icy area in Frejon Tunnel;
                                            • "Death Pads" in the Weapon Depot, only the 1st floor is explorable tought;
                                            • A new optional dungeon, the Fish Factory, located on Route 55;
                                            • Various bug fixes, in particular NPCs won't be glitched anymore when entering a city from a previous route, Pokemon OverWorlds in the party menu and in other menus won't be glitched anymore, "Safari Zone" trick glitch (an oversight by GameFreak) has been removed, NPCs will give you the correct TMs this time;
                                            • Wild Pokemon have been changed, as you explore further areas they will be stronger than in the last Demo;
                                            • "Abnormal" type has been changed to "Atom" type, it works differently than in the last version, so remember to check out the Type Chart inclosed in the .zip archive;
                                            • A couple of TM changes;
                                            • A lot of minor fixes and improvements;
                                            • A List of TMs\HMs has been included in the .zip archive;
                                            • ReadMe file contains now detailed info about the hack, how to play etc.

                                            The SaveGame from the previous version is compatible with this new release. If you have a previous savefile and want to continue from that one make sure to save in a PokemonCenter in the old version, and then continue the game with the newest version.
                                            This is necessary due to the fact that many maps have been changed and you may eventually be stuck on a tree or something similar if you don't follow this instruction.

                                            Final Version v1.0 comes out as soon as it's ready and fully tested.
                                            Don't bother me asking when the Final version comes out, please, be patient.

                                            That's it, have fun!

                                                    I changed Pokemon Movesets in order to match mostly Gen3 but also the next generation games' movesets.

                                                    Actually it was a reference to Grand Theft Auto San Andreas rather than GTA V (infact Demo 1 has been released before GTA V's release and the mention was already in there).
                                                    Yes, this hack is full of references.

                                                    And now for something completely different:
