This thread is up for archival purposes. If you want to see my most recent ROM hack, Pokémon Cobalt, click me.

Pokémon enCODED

enCODED was a ROM Hack of Pokémon Firered BPRE in English.

The World of Pokémon, where money is no obstacle and wonderful creatures roam free. Under the protection of the National Bank, the world of Pokémon has a healthy economy that allows scientific advancements such as Kanto's Elite Four, Hoenn's Space Center, Unova's Castelia City and Phellis' organisation, Gem-Ex.

On the night of Sunday the 18th of September, Achillea City's museum - the home of Gem-Ex - was broken into. Alarms rung, guards patrolled the building, and Code Red: Shutdown was initiated. The thieves' capture was ineitable. Three men, all dressed in dark jeans, leather jackets and beanie hats were in the 'Animals' section of the museum, each accompanied by a Growlithe. It is suspected that the Flamethrower attack was used in their escape.

After a few days of investigation, the police come to a unanimous verdict that the criminals had well and truly escaped, leaving no evidence whatsoever. The secret organisation GI7 find nothing, and the region turns to the legendary Team Element.

The Team come very close to finding the Gem however discover that the evidence trail being followed was simply a hoax. There was only one thing left to do... allow Vertex to take care of the issue, and stay calm.

And you, along with another member, Sky, are the two best investigators and Pokémon trainers of the team. The Boss receives a letter and automatically relies on the two of you to find and retrieve Gem-Ex, even if it means withstanding tragedy, lies, violence and occasionally death.
Your travels with include exploring the marvellous region of Phellis and the nearby region of Hoenn. Ready?

COMMENCE OPERATION G.E.R.M!

Features

  • The Hoenn region makes a return with a huge role in enCODED!
  • Mini-games.
  • Quests and Quest Points.



Screenshots


Special Thanks and Credits

  • The Final Destination - Overworld sprites.
  • NiKaNoRoU - Overworld and (trainer) battle sprites.

Wow, I have to say this looks very impressive. If there already is a download link there somewhere I'm clearly blind; if not, I can't wait till there is (unless it's in Crossroads?). It's an original plot with an original fresh look, and overall looks nice. I would recommend a different hero sprite though, as it really isn't very agent-ey. Great job so far though. ^-^

    Well it certainly seems interesting. But a nidoran for a starter? Seems a strange choice to me. Also I can see a few tile errors in the screen shots you provided.

    Thanks, patch. There is no download released to the public yet, but I'm happy that you're anticipating one. And it does state underneath thes screenies about the OWs. =P

    Thanks. And I chose Nidoran because it starts off weak and eventually becomes strong. And also I like to see little boys who hate girly things get a Nidoran F and vica versa. XD Nah, I just want to mix things up, m'kay?

    And if you're referring to the crapped up tree shadows, then yeah. I've added that underneath the screenshots, too. Thanks, anyway.

    I'd also liike to thank Cello for making that awesome mini-banner at the top of the page. Expect progress soon~

    Edit: Oh and if anyone has a hand for Overworld spriting, please PM me, I need halp! =D

      Thanks you, Neo-Wolf.

      Anyway, I'm currently implementing my house of minigames. It's concept is similar to that of the Puzzle House in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald (I don't know about Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, as I haven't played them in ages, if I am completely honest with you...). Anyway, for now it will only have three minigames, but that is sure to change. ;D

      Expect screenshots of it soon.

      Don't know how I missed this post...

      Thanks, UltimaZelfier!

      I'm still working on the minigame stuff, but for now, here's a lil' something I've inserted. It's a rare key item that has super secret attributes that Cello and Manipulation are aware of... I think.



      Thought up of, Sprited, Inserted, Named and Descripted by me! I might remove the 'Where is this, though?' part.

        Thanks! And no, the treasure map's got nothing to do with the Minigame House I was talking about. But I may include that somewhere else... Good idea!

          I'll make it, dun worry.

          And whaddya mean 'bout the Director? You want to be director of this hack? (Because if that's what you mean, sorry, but the answer's 'no'.) I can make you a character in the game if you WANT. PM me if you do. And I suppose anyone else can, too. But not recurring trainers or rivals or something, just ordinary NPCs, m'kay? I'm not really a fan of user-cameos, but I guess... Meh.

            no no i mean the director of the mini game of treasure hunting in the game.
            not the director of the hack and not the director of telling you what to do of the treasure hunting lol.
            just one person in the game who you'll meet in the mini-game/the person you meet the the gate

            Ooooh. Yeah, sure. I know who you mean. You won't really need a new sprite, though. Though I do need an Overworld spriter to make me some Pirate overworlds... Anyone? =P

            I was wondering whether or not you still needed that.
            Be sure to post in the team thread with details on the position. I'll update the page and have it heard.

            I'd take the position but I'm helping several people out already and taking on side projects. xD

            EDIT: LOL never mind you're already way ahead of me.

            ***UPDATE***
            I've taken down all of the screenies and replaced them with more up-to-date ones. Enjoy!


            Operation G.E.R.M is so complex that it requires people from all over the world - even frenchmen!


            Hinting that the BOSS is looking for you. Hop to!


            Well, I do, but you guys don't...


            Why thank you, kind sir!


            Upstairs, the BOSS is surprising you.


            Yeah, it goes a teeny-weeny off-screen. But YOU'D better not mess up like me!


            You... YOU CRAZY FOO' No Pokémon?


            Nidoran Female for you boys, and Nidoran Male for all you girls out there. You probably hate me now, I know. ;D


            You work in one ugly building.


            Well, it's pretty and...


            Peaceful! You should come here to Leicester at 6 o'clock, then you'd really know what busy is!


            Oh, Haroun, that's an ugly inside! Yeah, it is. But Mr. Puzel did that and then put in INVISIBLE WALLS! The nerve of some people!


            Yes and he says some cool speech, unlocks an INVISIBLE WALL and takes you into the next room. No and he says: "Yeah? Well I hate you too.".


            So you can exit after you've had you're share of minigames and puzzles, you can unlock that wall... from one side only, at least.


            Now you've had your share of PHYNNSE CITY, let's move onto ROUTE 1. Thanks Harry (Manipulation) for the excellent map. T'is much appreciated.


            Purdy map you got thar.


            Still a purdy map you got thar.


            We all love navigation signposts... don't we? Well, I sure do... Uh, which way to the next screenshot?


            A sneak peak to my amazing pirate island sequence. There's more to it than a Map though.
            (You probably know more about it if you read my conversation between me and Cello. ;D)

            That's it for the screenshots. Like it?

            Thanks to Manipulation for moving the thread to Progressing Hacks, too!
            Right now I'm scripting the Rival script in Route One. Expect screenies soon~

                Full throttle commentary:

                STORYLINE
                Intriguing, it's a mission impossible: Pokemon type of thing, huh? very original.

                FEATURES
                About the "So many more, it's pointless to list them all"...
                Here are some questions:
                • What gen Pokemon will be included?
                • Are you going to use the Gym/E4 champion system?
                • [Irrelevant question]Are you looking for custom Organization-style OW sprites?
                Aside of that, it's a good idea overall. And i like both NIDOKING and NIDOQUEEN, so kudos to you for the starter choice! (much better than a RATTATA

                  Cool, a hack where the main character is a spy

                  Intriguing, it's a mission impossible: Pokemon type of thing, huh? very original.
                  Yeah, basically... kinda. =P Thank you kindly.

                  Here are some questions:
                  • What gen Pokemon will be included?
                  • Are you going to use the Gym/E4 champion system?
                  • [Irrelevant question]Are you looking for custom Organization-style OW sprites?
                  • Mainly the wild Pokémon will be from Kanto, Hoenn and a bit from Johto. No, I'm not going to add D/P Pokémon, OK? =P
                  • Gyms/E4? No. Something similar? I might have something like that... Maybe...
                  • If you're offering, then I'd appreciate it, especially if it fits.

                  Thanks. And was that a reference to ToxicPurple, or just saying that the Nidorans are better rats? Or wut? =D

                  Not really a spy. More an agent of sorts. Undestandable misconception, though. =P Thanks!

                  I'm sorry my rival-update... thing hasn't come yet. Screenies of it will definitely be here by next week, MAX.

                    • No, I didn't ask for D/P Pokemon. =P
                    • Okay, take your time. You don't have to answer at all.
                    • I'll try. I like Fakemon/OW spriting from scratch the most. I'll notify you when I'm done making a try on the Hero/Heroine. I'll also try to make their trainer sprites.

                    More like a comparison. That was the only thing I didn't like in Toxi Purple

                    You don't need to rush, we are all excited and all but, good things take time, no?
                    Keep the good work up then.

                      My, this is an intriguing little thing, isn't it?

                      The storyline is rather interesting, but if there is one thing I may comment on, it is the names.
