Pokemon Extreme Silver Version




UPDATE!
VERSION 4.3 IS OUT!

VERSION 4.4 COMING SOON
KNOWN CHANGES:
ALL GYM LEADERS HAVE A FULL TEAM OF 6 POKEMON

-------------------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone! This is Pokemon Extreme Silver, which is obviously, a hack of Pokemon Silver for the Gameboy Color(GBC)
I made this because I felt Pokemon Silver was a little too easy. On my second playthrough, when I battled red, I swept him with one Pokemon, which is why I started this. The levels of the pokemon of every single Pokemon Trainer, Gym Leader, Elite Four, the Rival, etc has been increased by 5, 10, or even 15 levels to increase the difficulty!

Changes and Features:
Spoiler:

• Increased difficulty

• For Pokemon that evolve by being traded with/without a hold item, you don't need to trade them anymore, since they have a new way to evolve. For example, Seadra evolves into Kingdra by using a Dragon Scale on Seadra, instead of being traded while holding a Dragon Scale.

• Different starters! Larvitar, Dratini, and Abra as starters, instead of Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Totodile. At LV. 10 instead of LV. 5, and are holding nuggets to help you get started.

• Added to and changed the movepools of some Pokemon to make them more viable choices. For example, I made Flareon learn Flamethrower at an earlier level (Level 44) and made it able to learn Fire Blast by level up(Level 55)

• Higher level wild Pokemon.

• Changed some Pokemons' types.

Shuckle has new base stats, making it more usable.





Arcanine has new base stats also.





Ariados has new base stats as well, also making it more usable.



There's a LOT more Dragon types!
Charizard is Dragon/Fire

Lapras is Dragon/Ice

Aerodactyl is Dragon/Rock

Meganium is Dragon/Grass

Squirtle is still pure Water, but Wartortle and Blastoise are both Water/Steel



Screenshots:
Spoiler:

New Bark's mayor invested some money to make the town look nicer.


New starters!

Umm, no posts?
You shouldn't be surprised... I can't speak for the others but I'm pretty fed up with all increased difficulty "hacks" that are absolutely same...
And it seems others think the same.

1. This is my first ROMhack :L

2. I did this for fun. I didn't make this expecting it would become Romhack of the year, or something.

3. If you don't like it, you can simply not post anything, and go look at other threads. I never said this was a unique hack or anything.


Also, have you even played it? It wouldn't make much sense to judge a hack saying it's monotonous, without even playing it.

I personally don't think game that have increased difficulty are a bad thing. Some games are just ridiculously easy (such as this game), not to mention illlegal Pokemon. Lance calls Team Rocket criminals for pre-maturely evolving Magikarp when he has 3 Dragonites under Level 55. Problem Solved here (Well, besides Team Rocket being criminals. That's just normal). I'll probably try this out when the full version releases.

@Nerdtendo

Thanks. It's actually very close to completion, but I need to add to some gym leaders teams to make them more diverse, and also edit some in game trades, and edit the levels of the wild and legendary Pokemon encounters, since I realized that you would have to do a lot of grinding to get the Pokemon you caught to be at the recommended level. Once I do that, it will be complete(or at least for the time being)
And don't worry, Lances team is much improved. Replaced Charizards pathetic Wing Attack for something else.
I'm actually going to start working on it right now. :)

So maybe less than a week to 1 week until completion? Good. I like the hacks in the sideshow showcase.
Around that time, yeah.
Though it will never actually be "complete", per se. I'll still keep on trying to add more stuff to it, but gameplay-wise, it'll be pretty much complete soon.

Nope. Nor I plan to.

Don't worry, they do have more pokemon :)
And yes, it will technically be the final version, but I will still try to add more, and fix glitches/bugs.

Nope. Nor I plan to.

So you haven't played it, yet you say that it's the same as all other hacks in Sideshow Showcase.

I will try to finish V2.0 right now. It's 9:20PM 7/26/13 PST at the very moment I am typing this post. Sorry for the ginormous delay.

At least you're getting posts now. xD
Ill go ahead and give it a shot and let you know what I think.
Alright! :)
Feel free to suggest some things :)

i think font pokemon in your rom is nice. i hope your rom is good
Thank you! Remember that V2.0 is coming out soon, so if you already have it, you might want to update the patch you have when it comes out :)

EDIT: Version 2.0 has been released.

I'd like to report a bug: In cherrygrove city, there's invisible cut trees in certain places, like in front of the pokemon center and the old guide gent's house
Thanks for letting me know! I'll fix it right away!

EDIT: Fixed.

EDIT: There's a really weird bug. Silvers team is way too overpowered in the first battle, yet I don't remember giving him a level 20 gastly for the first battle ._.
I'll fix it. Also, the guide gent doesn't appear for an odd reason. I checked in goldmap, and the data IS there, but I don't know what's going on.

EDIT: I fixed the first bug, but it seems like there isn't a way to fix the guide gent one. Sorry, but there won't be a way to look at the region map, but when you get the FLY HM, you can use it as a map, I guess. Sorry for the inconvenience.

EDIT: Version 3.0 Released.

I feel tempted to play this, but I'd love to know what changes you made to what pokemon.

I mean typing-wise, new base stats, moves and such.

Are all pokémon catchable?

Somewhat. I'm still learning how to script. I'm trying to make Mew and Celebi, and other non-catchable pokemon to be available.
Also, I'm going to make a list of all the changes to moves, typing, base stats, etc.
I'm going to do this right now.

EDIT: Made the list of ALL the changes.

I really hope that I can get this game to work, I have literally spent DAYS looking for a gen 2 remake that made things more difficult without changing to some weird new region or making mewtwo your starter or something stupid like that. This game has everything a gen 2 difficulty hack should, all pokemon available, no trade evo's, level increase, etc... it sounds too good to be true. My one question is where is 4.3? You said that version 4.3 is out but the last download on the list is 4.2 So where do I find 4.3?

And one more question, did you change the team style's of the gym leaders and the E4 very much? Because that's one thing I don't like a whole lot. I like it when people add pokemon to a leader/E4 member or make them stronger/evolve as long as the pokemon feels like it "should" be in that leaders team, but when people decide to give lance a lugia or Falkner an Aerodactyl it kinda makes things seem a bit fake ya know. I was looking for a trainer editor so I could look through the list of leaders in extreme silver but I can't seem to find a 2nd gen trainer editor anywhere -__- Anyway, I just started playing the hack and so far it looks real good, it has a great nostalgia feel but the subtle difficulty differences are also interesting, so good job so far.

Hey, xXAndrewXx, I took a long hiatus, so I couldn't get to you sooner. Also, it seems like you need a trainer editor? I'll try to find you one, and I'll give you a link.
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?z4gmg2mryau889x
It's from a user by the name of Akwa, from the Skeetendo forums, or something.

And yes, the pokemon in the trainers, leaders, and E4's teams do make sense.
Also, I don't know why I didn't put 4.3 on. I'm going to upload it once I find it. Anything else?

EDIT:
Actually, there was never a 4.3.
4.3 was actually 4.2, it was just a typo!
I feel stupid.

Will my hack be done soon? Probably not.

I would agree with your last post, as hacks of this sort are not popular, but I think you should give at least some credit. I mean someone actually had an effort to finish this, where some people get half way then quit. I have played this, and thoroughly enjoyed it. And you are wrong, actually people have played it.

Note - Don't get angry with me for posting this for over 4 months after you posted your comment.
Forza Borussia Dortmund!

Quick note, I ended up losing the IPS files for ALL my hacks in the Sideshow Showcase, I ended up factory resetting my PC before making backups. Since you can't download them because the downloads are broken, and I no longer have access to them, well, you can figure out the rest -.-
