Features

  • New Pokémon: 721 Pokémon as of Generation VI are added in the game with their respective forms, formes, and Mega Evolutions. Data updates such as moves list, stats, etc. across Generations are present. In the start, you will get to play a mixed list of 251 Pokémon.
  • New Moves: Some Moves as of Generation VI are added in the game such as Flare Blitz and Moon Blast. I also made some custom moves like you have never seen commonly in the real world of Pokémon. Move updates across Generations are present as well such as Crunch now decreases Defense.
  • New Abilities: Some Abilities as of Generation VI are added in the game such as Motor Drive and Mold Breaker. Ability updates across Generations are present as well such as Sturdy now leaving 1HP if hit by any full knock-out.
  • Fairy Type: The addition of the Fairy Type is in the game.
  • Physical/Special/Status Split: The Physical, Special, and Status split for moves is also in the game. Oh, yes! It also features an icon preview which you will also know which moves are Physical, Special, or Status.
  • New Repel System: Like in Black 2 and White 2, when your Repel's effect wares off, it automatically asks if you want to use another Repel without getting another Repel from the Bag again to use one.
  • Poison Survival Style: Nobody faints from Poison status anymore. Like DPPt and HGSS, it leaves 1HP and the Poison status fades away.
  • Infinite TMs: Using TMs are now infinite. It doesn't break after use. That means you can learn TMs as many times as you like.
  • Capture-Experience Gain System: You will also be rewarded Experience Points when you caught a Pokémon.
  • Rearranged Music: Of course, I planned to edit the music as well. My favorite themes from HGSS/BW/B2W2 are rearranged accoring to GBA voicegroups.
  • Missions: You can have missions in game in order to obtain rare items, unlock further events and catch uncommon Pokemon.
  • Easter Eggs: Seek out hidden events as you catch more uncommon Pokemon.

Questions and Answers


Q: Why is the region named "Hairo"?
A: If light is white, and dark is black, I minded up in-between so I chose gray. The Japanese of gray (color) is Hairo. Well, Gure is the first answer that came out. So, I just made it up Hairo. That is why I named the place as Hairo region.

Q: Is it possible to have all 721 in the game?
A: Yes. That's one reason I have applied missions and some mystery stuff like easter eggs. I was once replacing to those I don't need. I got bored on replacing so, I tested expansions several times. Until then, I got it completely working on me so, I minded up all the 721 Pokemon to be in the game.

Q: Will Mega Evolutions be present in game?
A: Yes. However, the implementation project is only for FireRed for this time. Once it is finally available for Emerald, I will be using it to have the feature to play Mega Evolutions. At meantime, during my progress, I guess you guys all know where the first BETA will end.

Q: Why is the game called Dark Crystal? And, why Black Kyurem is the mascot?
A: As always, dark is black and light is white. Then, crystal is a relative word of ice (as you can describe ice, they are just like crystals, right?). Since Kyurem is also an Ice-type Pokemon and Kyurem has his Black and White Formes, I have combined words to make Dark Crystal and Light Crystal. And, this is the reason why Black Kyurem is the mascot.

Q: Will there be a Light Crystal with this?
A: Yes. I planned to. The only difference between Dark and Light will be the each of the "paired" Pokemon encounter priority (e.g. Murkrow and Misdreavus, Sableye and Mawile. If you don't know what I mean: example: In Dark, Murkrow is in THIS FOREST and Misdreavus is in THIS CAVE, then in Light, Misdreavus is in THIS FOREST and Murkrow is in THIS CAVE.), and you will be encountering White Kyurem in Light. Once I'm done with the Dark, I will be doing the Light.

Q: Why not the Generation V system of Poison in overworld which do not drop HP while walking?
A: Removing the Poison system in overworld sounds ridiculous to me. I found it to be illogical as it compares to the real life. I know how to do it but I instead applied the Generation IV system. It is because, in the real life, while walking in poison, what do you feel? Of course, your life drains from poison until it is either you survive or die from it.

Pokecommunity.com and PokemonHackersOnline.com are the ONLY SITES SHOWING THE MAIN INFORMATION of this game (I never planned to make an independent site about this game but sometime, I may plan to do so). You are free to MAKE VIDEOS and WALKTHROUGHS about this game (I'm just proud that someone can able to do these stuff). Never upload the actual ROM in any downloading sites to avoid copywriting.

If you have a copy of this, DON'T SELL THIS GAME. If you have bought this, return it back immediately and take back your money because you have been theft. If cannot, we will try to get your money back. Just download the patch in the Internet, patch your game, and play it on emulators and hardwares. I have given this game to be FREE so, do not sell.

Have you noticed that I've mention "which I personally ported it to Emerald" several times in credits? Another motivation for this hack is to show stuff which are possible only for FireRed implemented into Emerald. There are already implementations around like the Catch-Experience style and I decided to use those in the hack to show Emerald is dealing more than FireRed. I'm having a busy time dealing with Pre-Battle Mugshots and B2W2 Repel style (I will soon handle these) and it has been always an extreme challenge for me to learn ASM nowadays.

For those who are playing, enjoying and loving this game, thanks for playing! I will appreciate any feedbacks and comments given by a lot of people around. I will be accepting SUPPORT BANNERS as well if you are talented to make one for this game. That's all and have fun!

Enjoy!

The fact that you were able to apply all of these features into Emerald is simply amazing. You seem to have come out of the blue in the hacking scene (by this I mean that I haven't seen you release anything in the past) and I appreciate you polishing up your techniques before you presented this hack. If you haven't done so already, then I hope that you have found time to document all of your methods/work/discoveries in the porting to emerald process. You have almost every core updated feature of the 6th generation games on the GBA (that damn mega-evolution seems to trump everyone lol.) But seriously, I always knew that Emerald had more potential than Fire Red, and the fact that someone like you was able to harness that potential is quite inspiring. I also must say that the last screenshot with the Smeargle mission is an incredible feature, and the Vespiquen using attack order is a perfect animation.

I am also sensing that English might not be your primary language. I understand both English and Spanish, so if by chance Spanish is your native language then I might be able to help you out ;) .

I am so excited for this, so I'll be watching this hack and your progress like a hawk. Keep up the good work!

This looks amazing. I especially love how the R/S/E tiles, FR/LG tiles and other custom tiles are being blended together here, it is a neat gamefreak style look. The mission feature is very interesting too, especially how the mission briefing is looking in game. The story is nice and interesting too. I am definitely keep an eye on this.

Those screenies look awesome! I'm definitely gonna lurk the heck out of this thread! :-D
Some of the hacks that I like:



I also support Pokemon Liquid Crystal, Glazed, and a few others who either have large banners or none at all.
I'm often not on, but when I am, I show my support in likes :-D
School is back in session. Time to stress out and disappear (even more so than before).

Wow! This looks really nice! I love the tiles you're using.
I look forward to seeing how this develops!

A few things:

It should say: "Let's see who's stronger of the two of us! ..."
It's a bit awkward anyway so maybe you could reword it? Something like "Let's see which of us is stronger!"


Should say: "So be it!" The comma is unnecessary.

:)
What are you so afraid of?

Well, this hacks looks amazing, and very promising.

Those screenies look awesome! I'm definitely gonna lurk the heck out of this thread! :-D
Wow! 721 pokemon and 621moves really surprised me
Thanks guys! Thanks for the support! :D

Awesome looking hack! Keep up the excellent work!

That said, the grammar in some of your screenshots is kinda off. I'd be more than happy to help you work on that, though.
Thanks! I'll look into my grammatical errors. I just dunno how to use words well since I'm not fond of reading books at all. But, I will begin to read some to boost my grammar skills.

Thanks! Yes, you're right. I'm not primarily English. I'm not Spanish either. Feel free to guess what am I. Haha!

You hack looks really promising, don't give up

And that post should help you I believe : http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=8724074&postcount=107
Thanks! I'll never give up on it! I have seen that before but I can't get anything if it updates at all. Once I have looked into that this time, I will be using it (and credit the owner).

Lol adamant gardevoir.

You're hack looks nice, I'll keep checking back for updates.
Thanks! Haha! I'm just messing up with encrypted data in save files. What it got? Tada! A female adamant Gardevoir! LOL

This looks amazing. I especially love how the R/S/E tiles, FR/LG tiles and other custom tiles are being blended together here, it is a neat gamefreak style look. The mission feature is very interesting too, especially how the mission briefing is looking in game. The story is nice and interesting too. I am definitely keep an eye on this.
Thanks! I'd rather just keep the original tiles and yeah, I'd plan blending stuff since they are some so beautiful. I also make custom tiles.

This hack looks epic! With so much content you're making game freak look weak ;) xD I can't wait to play it, and th screenshots look awesome! Great battle backgrounds too btw.
Thanks! That was unexpected. I've never expecting that I will make GameFreak so weak. Haha! Thanks for noticing the battle backgrounds!

Great work! I looking forward to play this hack version. Also if possible, will you guys improve the graphic of this? I really like the graphics of Life and Giratina Legend and i hope this will apply in your hack version too.

And can you post the progression percentage of this?
Thanks! I'd rather stick with the RSE tileset. Not because using DS tiles look awesome but they might a little bit ugly but because... let's just say to keep the clean RPG feel (if you know what I mean LOL). Hmm... the percentage isn't necessary for me. But, from what I have imagined, the beta progress is somewhat 60% while the complete game progress is 0.6%. I have a very, very long way to go unfortunately.

Just signed after i see this romhack can't wait to play this!!!
Thanks! And, welcome to the forums yow!

This hack looks so awesome, I can't wait until a release comes out! I love 721 Pokemon hacks but haven't actually found a non-buggy one yet
Thanks! I will ensure that my 721 hack be a non-buggy game. I guess.

Well absolutely fantastic new hack displayed!!!!! The screenies looks amazing !!!!
Emerald hacks are always awesome,but this one look really cool!!!
Thanks! Emerald hacks are always awesome to me. Spherical Ice's Gaia is the only one I've enjoyed as a FireRed hack. Haha!

Wow! This looks really nice! I love the tiles you're using.
I look forward to seeing how this develops!

A few things:

It should say: "Let's see who's stronger of the two of us! ..."
It's a bit awkward anyway so maybe you could reword it? Something like "Let's see which of us is stronger!"


Should say: "So be it!" The comma is unnecessary.

:)
Thanks! Oh? I'm glad that you have noticed some of my grammatical errors and also thanks for it! I will change those lines and remove that comma (I also hope you will be able to spot some when I released the game). :)



Wow! I can't believe that I've answered to twenty-three posts. I bet that this is my longest post ever! Haha! I'd rather limit myself from keep posting and posting, and just post when I'm going to update stuff.

I don't know how should I make you guys motivated. But anyway, there will be more updates to come! I'd like to prove "rearranged music" now. And thus, an update! Here are some DS music I have remixed into GBA style which are now in the game:

Route 19 Theme ~ Spring




Route 22 Theme ~ Spring




Dreamyard Theme




There are some more I have done by now but I don't like to spoil everyone too much,

Enjoy!
