Story
Team Void is plotting to take over the world, by turning all of the Pokémon into dark versions of themselves, and you have to stop them. You start out in the usual Pokémon Diamond way, going to the lake to get your first Pokémon, but instead of a Starly attacking you, it's a Darkrai clone, which absorbs your starter. When the starter comes back out, it's a dark Pikachu, but hasn't fully gone "dark", it isn't evil yet, due to Team Void still perfecting their transformation technology.

EDIT: Did you ever think of using the Shadow Pokemon coloring for Pikachu?

Hah, I re read the story and it says Pikachu hasn't fully gone dark yet.

Maybe one ear is normal colored? ahah :p
I didn't even know there was a shadow colouring :P
But I just want to colour all the sprites myself, it won't be that many that are dark.

All legendaries will be available as wild encounters

will it be like a normal
wild encounter just like

R/S/E?
It will be normal, I'm not sure if you can make it so they move around the map.

dont you think taht will sort of spoil the fun of trying to catch them properly and only there being pone of each ??? love the idea though would love to beta test if you are going to release if not sorry i dont read the info coz im only 12

heres a suggeistion ( cant spell :P ) what if the legendaiars could only be caught after the E4 apart from ones you can already get before them and each time you beat the E4 there is another one of them there.

i dont know if this is possible if not oh well, BTW good luck would love to try this

Nice game! You should make two hacks of emerald and make them where on one theres a terrible drought (Groudon) and on the other theres a huge flood (Kyogre). Then you have to stop the disaster with Rayquaza. That might not be a great storyline though lol. But anyway nice game!

Very nice looking hack so far. Very easy to patch as well, which is always a good thing. I would (personally) cut down on the sarcastic/dark humor in the beginning since I think it would turn some people off. I like how you changed the news story at the start to say black Rayquaza instead of red Gyarados. When you click the Wii, it says PS3. First off, Nintendo's gonna be so pissed at that. Second, you might want to change the sprite for it if you're going to make it a PS3. Third, the mothers text...wow. Funny yes. Wrong on may levels? Yes. The whole "BOUNCE FOOL" was kinda funny too. Also, I think you should give some reasoning as to why exactly the Rival thinks a legendary dragon like Rayquaza would just show up at a lake. You're going to need to alter the beginning sequence where you pick a pokemon too. No matter which you pick, it sounds like Pikachu. If it's possible, just put one pokeball in the case, it contains the Dark Pikachu, then have the rival find a second one hidden in a secret compartment. And what is up with the wild Dusknoir fight right at the start? I mean, it was kind of cool, but really just unexpected. I really like Dark Pikachu starting out with Shadow Ball. That was extremely cool. Though, the game did freeze on me quite a bit. The first time was after I selected my name, and the second was after the Dusknoir battle. Also, why does Rowan say I made the Pikachu evolve? That's as far as I got before I turned off the no$gba. Looks good so far.

Thanks for the help, but some of the things, like the pokeballs at the start, can't be changed. I'm not sure why it freezes up though...

Looks cool.
Kindof feels good to see that someone else wants to de-Legendarise the Legendaries...
Well, kinda.
I suppose... They'd be still rather rare, like a 1 in a 1000 chance of one appearing? So, for every 999 battles you do, you'll get 1 Legendary attacking you next time you reach a random encounter... [That'd stop people training their Pokemon too high for certain areas... perhaps the counter for number of battles is reset every time one faces a trainer, or heals at a PokeCenter?]

just a few ideas there... Dunno if they could be implemented...

[started playing it now... looks good so far... shame about the couple of times it freezes briefly, but it's a beta, what' would I expect...]

Also, to the dude who posted earlier that Nintendo would get pissed about this? I reckon that Nintendo are mature enough by now not to get too worried about hacks... I mean... Look at all the offensive Super Mario Bros. Hacks that exist!

When it freezes, does it unfreeze itself without you having to restart?
No. I gave it five minutes to unfreeze and it was still frozen. Sometimes it lags as well, but I don't know what's causing either problems.
