My first hack. A small hack of HGSS that mostly contains Quality of life and Aesthetic changes. I made this with the idea of replacing the Original HGSS games as it contains a few things that SHOULD have been in the originals.

Feel free to use these as a base for your rom hacks but give credit pls :P

UPDATED UPDATED 16/9/2020

-Cleaned a few Pokemon Sprites
-E4 now has new movesets for the level curve patch.
-Fixed many pokemon learning the wrong HMs
-The Lucky Egg can be obtained earlier with only 14 Unown caught (down from 21)


NOTE: A separate patch is included with the file:
- A patch that change the level curves throughout the game to be more streamlined.

The changes:
Spoiler:
-All pokemon use their new gen 6 mini sprites on the party menu.
-Your Mom now gives you the pokegear at the very beginning, similar to the original Gold and Silver
-Various cut-scenes in new bark town have been streamlined so you can get to Route 29 much faster
-All attacks now have their power,accuracy, etc updated to gen 6 standards.
-All pokemon have their movesets updated as close to Gen8 as possible.
-Lyra has been replaced with Kris and is referred to as "Kris" by all NPCs. (sprites courtesy of Gregarlink10 @ deviantart)
-Both Game Corners at Celadon and Goldenrod have been restored to their original designs. (Voltorb Flip replaces the actual slots however. Game coins can be bought again ^^) In-game text refers to Voltorb Flip now instead of slots including NPC blurb.
-Coin Case is now located in Goldenrod Underground like in the Originals.
-Your mom now gives you the GB Player at the start of the game.
-Kurt now gives you your finished apricorn pokeballs immediatley after asking him to make them. Apricorns still have a 24hr respawn.
-All pokemon that evolve via trade with held items can now also evolve by just "using" the item on them. Trading with held item still works as a second option.
-Pokemon that require trading to evolve, can now also evolve by using a new item called "Covenant Orb". (See Game Corner Prizes)
-Move re-learner will now happily re-learn a pokemon's move free of charge.
-Razor Fang and Razor Claw can now be obtained at a house in Cinnawood City
-Up-Grade can now be obtained from a scientist a the safari zone's Pokemon center
-Magmarizer can be found at Ice Path
-Electirizer can be found at Route 44
-Dubious Disc can be found at Route 26
-Protector can now be found at Victory Road
-Many Pokemon have had their sprites and palettes edited to be more in-line with their official artwork.
-Pokemon that had their base stats changed with the release of Gen 6 and on have been updated accordingly.
-TMs are now reusable and TMs that are originally obtained at the battle frontier can be bought from different Marts across Kanto.
-Move tutors are now free, have had their moves re-arranged and have been moved from the Battle Frontier to the following locations:
1. Cianwood City

2. Lake of Rage (Magikarp Fisherman's House)

3. Pewter City

-new side-quest at the Ruins of Alph imported from sacredgold/stormsilver. - credit to Drayano
-28 brand new crafted sprites for all the Unown, done by your truly. :)

Wow this looks great! Will play it after finishing Black2..
Btw is there any documentation on the wild list? That would be awesome :)

Ps: Playing Kris again is a nice touch! I was sad that Lyra replaced Kris in HGSS XD

sadly no, I'm still trying to figure out how to do that.
ok i have found out how you can edit the evolutions.first,you need a (USA) ROM of HG OR SS.second extract the file "4" from the (u) version using NitroExplorer2b.exe.third, use 4º Gen Pokemon Evolution Editor.exe to open and edit the evos in the file "4"(usa version).
fourth,reinsert the file "4" into your (eur) rom.
I have just tried this with my geodude which i edited to evolve at lv.16,and it worked.
i'll upload the tools+readme right now so that you can try it;)
tell me if it works for you too.
and by the way how did you edit moves in this game?thats one thing i want to do for hg/ss but cannot figure out how,do tell
For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

I appreciate the info but no longer needed. I have Just compiled a new patch v1.1 that has evolution changes for tradeable pokemon using new items. The patch will be uploaded shortly.

And about the attack editing, it was easy, I used the universal rom randomizer for making nuzlockes and set "updated moves" then i took the appropriate narc containing the new edited moves and reinserted them into my rom.

what annoyed me most in HG SS was that the hidden power checker wasn't around till post game in Celadon City. Is it at all possible to have him any sooner? It'd be nice if he was in New Bark Town since it would be great to have that guy around at the start of the game. Also roaming legendaries have got to go, Raikou and Entei along with the Lati twins need to have events similar to suicune's so you can have an easier way to get appropriate natures and IVs or them.

I really want to play your HGSS hack but I don't know if I could still play your game with my old save file of it when you updated the game or not so if you could, please answer it for me please! :")
(P/s: Sorry for my bad English and my silly question :p )
Your old save file should be fully compatible with this hack, if you are using DeSuME just export the .sav file from your clean game and import it when u load the hack.

both version have all pokemon catchable or there are some exclusive in both?
Yes both versions have exclusives like the original. Only difference being Gligar and Skarmory are available in both games.

The idea was to make these "fine-tuned replacements" for the originals and also as a base for future rom hacks should people wish to use it. :)

Also im making a few color changes to some pokemon to make them look more closely to their official artwork so check back soon.
Here is an example:
