    Pokemon Unbound
    Introduction
    Hello Pokécommunity, my name is Skeli and this is my first Rom Hack. This hack was started a few years ago, however I stopped working on it for a large period of time. About a year ago I got back into it and completely overhauled everything I had done previously. As of now about half of it is complete, but if I can get a good pace going I should be finished within the year. With that being said I hope you enjoy it!

    Story
    Welcome to the Borrius Region, a region rich in history. Many years ago the Borrius region fought a bloody war with the Kalos region. The people of the Borrius region summoned a dark force to help them defeat their enemies; however the war ended in defeat when the king of the Kalos region unleashed the ultimate weapon. With the war over, the dark force was sealed away never to be used again. However, many years later, an evil organization known simply as “The Shadows” is bent on releasing the dark force once again. It’s up to you to stop them and save the Borrius region from ultimate destruction.

    Features
    • Updated Graphics: All of the Fire Red graphics have been updated to Gen IV styled graphics. This includes tiles, overworlds, sprites and even battle backgrounds.
    • Updated Pokémon: All Pokemon from Gens 1-7 will be available in the game. The Fairy type is also present in the game. They will all have updated movesets and abilities to closely resemble the ones found in OR/AS or Sun and Moon. New evolution methods have also been added in order to closely resemble how the Pokemon truly evolve.
    • Updated Mechanics:General improvements to gameplay to enhance the player's experience such as the Physical/Special split and Mega Evolution, as well as a BW Repel system and X/Y capture experience.

    • New Music: Music from many different Pokemon games is present in Pokemon Unbound. This music ranges from HGSS and BW, all the way Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

            Inverse battles are a special type of battle introduced in X&Y where type matchups are reversed.

            I don't see how that is a problem. That is an entirely different kind of hack than mine. And anyways, my hack name has been in my signature for a while now.

                      Holy Crap! The hack is half way done? Thats insane! I honestly love the plot of the story and the mapping and graphics and sprites really match the region itself. So much attention to detail with the weather and style of clothing for the male and female protagonists! Not gonna lie though, but the female protagonist kinda looks like flannery but it really doesn't bother me. I wish you the best👌👌!

                        This one looks promising.
                        I really love this style of tiles. Good luck with this!

                          The basic pitch sounds really promising. The planned features are wonderful.

                            May I beta test too? It looks very interesting and promising.

                                          This is my most anticipated hack. Best of luck for this one. Also, can I join the beta?

                                                  Ah. Sounds great.
                                                  I'd love to play a hack with new Gen VII abilities, moves and pokemon.
                                                  Of course alolan typed would be fun too if you think about it.

                                                  Looking forward to this :)
