Patch 4.1b changes

NOTE: If you are midway through a playthrough, and you have beaten roxanne but have not beaten norman, do the following:
- Defeat flannery before you apply the patch.
- Once you’ve defeated flannery, you should fight norman before fighting any other gym leaders.
- If you go near fray manor before you apply the patch, it will prevent you from calling roxanne on the match call. This is a longstanding bug, but I've found the fix for it.

BUGFIXES
- Norman now correctly checks you have fought all previous gym leaders, rather than checking if you fought flannery or not

The following bugs are fixed:
- Protector no longer freezes the game when looked at in the inventory if you play on no$gba and some other emulators.
- The man next to the Pokecenter in Rustboro now talks properly
- Oran description now specifies that oran berry heals 15hp when consumed, and 10hp when used. same for sitrus and leppa)
- If you battle the trainer on the bridge on Route 135 Tar Pits, previously a pokemon in your party may become a bad egg. (removed sketch from his smeargle)
- When you return to Birch's Lab from Route 103, you can walk past May on the right and she'll still approach
- If you fight flannery and then brawly, you will now still be able to fight norman
- Brawly no longer withholds phone info
- Roxanne phone call no longer odd
- Phone flags no longer mess up
- Invisible blocks route 103 removed
- Pokemart survey text fixed
- Removed occasional random crashes and an item bug in gauntlet island southwest map
- fade fixed
- Oblivion Wing, Flail. Rock Wrecker,- mirror shot, spirit break, Wing Attack, Shadow Punch's, Sweet Scent's and Fade's description fixed
- Dragon Ascent now says “press Start to megaevolve” in the description.
- strange steam now affected by protect etc.
- The dialogue of a Team Aqua Grunt fixed
- The name changes of trainers are now reflected in Match Call.
- Trainers eye rematches have more accurate levels and species
- You can no longer headbutt people's dressers
- missingno can now be talked to (stands in the middle of the room oscillating)
- Slateport Battle Tent is now functional.
- fixed slateport and mountain crypt events not working
- chingling's moveset no longer includes the entirety of budew's moveset
- Fixed odd move tutor learnset order for xatu, lickilicky, venomoth.

GENERAL
Rusturf tunnel encounter rate doubled
Sludge bomb guy on dewford now gives you a razor fang, gauntlet island now gives you a reaper cloth and the sludge bomb TM
Chingling can now be found in Fray Manor (off route 110).

move changes
- tm water pulse to soak (learned by all water types, lickitung line, gulpin line, miltank)
- tm gravity to meteor beam (learned by all rock types except geodude line. Also by butterfree, ledyba line, baltoy line, flygon line registeel, regice, regigigas)

Chingling base happiness increased to 140. Learnset updated (learns extrasensory lv18 and perish song lv24




Patch 4 changes:


A better postgame
- TRAINER HILL has reopened. Internal map layouts now force you to do double battles.

- GAUNTLET ISLAND: Added a sprawling new area of six all-new routes, complete with entirely new puzzles and a unique challenge. The gauntlet island challenge is officially open, to bearers of the Sootopolis gym badge!
---- While you have three or fewer pokemon and your team is below a certain level threshold, you can use gauntlet island's altars. The level threshold varies by altar - 5/10/15/20/25/30.
---- Altars restore your team to full health and set one of their IVS to 31. The IV varies by altar - hp/def/sdef/satk/atk/speed.
---- If you enter with 3 or fewer pokemon at lv5 ,and make it to the end with a team of 3 or fewer pokemon at lv25 or higher, you receive the lucky egg!! If you've already received that lucky egg, you get a rare candy instead.
---- You can enter the island even if you don't meet these criteria.
---- Dizzy egg's emerald engine is the only thing that enabled me to do this. Huge thanks to him.

- BIRCH IS NOT A STINGE. When completing the dex you are given all three legendary birds now. The birds evolve into each other on the previous patch, but not on the current one. If you've already filled out the dex, don't forget to evolve them into each other before patching.

- EV CHECKER/BOTTLER. The EV checker will check your first mon's EVs and read them out to you. She'll then offer to reset all EVs to 0. When she does this, she gives you one power item per 15 EVs removed from a stat. For example, if you had 37 HP evs and 20 Attack EVs, you would receive 2 HP Ups and 1 Protein.

Overworld tweaks
- NICE TUNES. Fixed some clicks in the music This involved repointing some old route connection data for forest rapids, route 115, and route 129. If you're updating with an old save file, save outside in any town, just to be safe.
- NICE MAPS. Adjusted the layouts of route 103, 121 and the battle frontier for the umpteenth time. This will cause minor and temporary visual oddities if you've saved in these routes when the rom is updated.



Pokemon changes

- rapid spin now 50 power (wow, such programming skill)
- Added 12 new moves from swsh (the ones that are functionally reskins of old moves.)

butterfree gets magic powder lv25 (neat with silver wind)
koffing/weezing gets strange steam lv42
Scyther gets dual wingbeat lv48
kabutops gets flip turn lv62
zapdos/moltres/articuno get their new galar moves LV78/LV71/LV71,
tyrogue gets coaching instead of helping hand,
cleffa gets meteor beam lv20,
linoone gets obstruct lv1,
medicham gets coaching lv1,
solrock and lunatone get meteor beam lv47,
tropius gets apple acid lv46,
luvdisc gets decorate lv27,

- reorganised learnsets for entei, raikou, suicune, nidoran lines. They now learn moves faster.
- Fearow now gets laser focus lv1, night slash lv18, focus energy lv22, slash lv36, and cross chop lv44. Slap a razor claw on it for those sweet sniper crits.
- poochyena now gets rattled instead of dark aura - for the sake of first impressions. Mightyena still has Dark Aura. The lowest level wild pokemon with a legendary pokemon's ability is now lv14 fairy aura mawile. By that point, I assume people will be inured to shenanigans.
- Roselia no longer gets technician, instead having Natural Cure/flower veil and better stats (125 sdef, 65 def). It's a lot weaker than it was, but still damn strong. Roserade still gets technician
- Minor stat nerfs to Volbeat and Illumise (especially volbeat)
- Hariyama has 20 more satk and sdef, and learns thunder wave by TM (for smellingsalt).



BUGFIXES
- Some e4 teams use gen 4 pokemon now, even prior to the postgame. Wally now uses a roserade with giga drain rather than a roselia forced into spamming Spikes.
- other minor text fixes.
- safety specs hastily fixed with an uncorrupted sprite. No longer crashes
- Poliwag had a high exp yield for some reason - I've decreased it.
- fixed little visual oddities route 120, route 115, route 111
- erased a bunch of invisible walls
- Updated the documentation


NEXT PATCH
- Probably the final one?
---- tiny balance tweaks
---- Fix the bloody battle pyramid if I can
---- potentially have a crack at contests
---- Delete bugs. Only a few are left.



What happens when you take (almost) every move and ability from gen 1 to 7, add some new ones to the mix, and then cram them into just 386 Pokémon?
You get a level of meta diversity the main games could only dream of. Over half the abilities are signature abilities, and moves are no different! You can catch all your favourites here, and you'll find them stronger and more defined than ever before.

On top of that, I've rebalanced and re-teamed the trainers and gym leaders, then freshened up every route in Hoenn and added five new ones. And I love the puzzles: they're optional, fair, and absolutely devilish.

On with the show!
Starring:
  • Dizzy Egg's/Chacha Dinosaur's emerald battle engine: most moves, many items, and all types, phys/spec split, abilities, capture xp, and all abilities (especially the cool ones) up to generation 7 are in the game
  • The palette has been made more vibrant All routes have been remodeled, some islands have been added in the sea, victory road is completely new and exciting, and 5 new (fully optional) routes have been added: a canyon, a haunted house, an extension to route 119's river, a snowy mountain, and a mine.
  • So many quality of life changes!
    • Fly to routes
    • Access Pokémarts downstairs in all Pokémon Centres
    • Use Nature Power as a replacement for all of Strength, Rock Smash, Cut, Surf, Waterfall, and Dive, or just use the old HMs as usual
    • Evolve your team into all their later generation evolutions
    • Evolve trade evos that require items by just levelling them up while holding that item, and evolve all other trade evos at lv36 (or evolve gengar by happiness at night)
    • Reuse tms and move tutors as much as you want
    • Shiny rate doubled to match later generations
    • Run indoors
    • Delete all HMs
    • Use the updated repel system,
    • Access all the secret base items,
    • A few storyline rewrites (the Magma Base is now an enjoyable little sneaking mission where you have to avoid getting seen. )
    • An ability switcher in Mauville
    • An egg hatcher in verdanturf
    • An IV checker and perfecter in the Battle Frontier (with the option to give you 0 base speed of course)
    • An EV checker that can reduce all EVs to 0 by converting them into EV items. 15 EVs make one EV item. e.g a mon with 37 HP Evs would give you 2 HP UPs.
    • Optional patch with 20 more type changes
    • And even more QOL improvements!
      Spoiler:
      HM use in overworld takes fewer button presses, same goes for Berry planting
      Poison doesn't hurt in overworld
      Daycare man now steps directly in the way of the bike path on route 117 to alert when an egg is hatched
      Game corner times are cheaper, and buying the currency is more expensive (Overall cost of items is the same in pokedollars, but playing the slots is relatively more rewarding now. This change was made specifically to encourage minors to gamble.)
      Ashblower items are half price, huff-puff
      Battle frontier items cost eight times less (Now 32BP for a lapras doll down from 256bp)
      Stat screen displays natures' +/- stats (see screenshots)
      Both bikes obtainable in overworld
      Fossil resurrector now resurrects every fossil you're holding all in one go

  • 417 pokémon are available, all of which have been tinkered, polished, dusted off and enhanced. All of them are really cool to use, and I've tried them all. Highlights include:
    • Disguise Sudowoodo complete with a form change
    • Shields Down Golem complete with a form change
    • Ghost/Grass horror tank Parasect with 140 sDef, spore and nightmare
    • Spinda with Dancer and every "Dance" move in the game
    • Grass/Fight Grovyle and Sceptile with Defiant, Forest Curse, Mat Block, Low Sweep, and Sacred Sword
    • Corsola lowers Sp.Def but sharply raises Def when hit by Physical moves, and lowers Def but sharply raises Sp.Def when hit by Special moves. Or gets regenerator
    • Levitate Electrode with a move that calculates damage based on speed. And of course electro ball
    • Porygon/Porygon2 that changes from one to the other every level
    • Ariados with a learnset based round toxic thread (now badly poisons and halves speed), baneful bunker, venom drench, and venoshock and access to electroweb and psychic fangs
    • Beedrill with Merciless and 40 (x2) base power Twineedle with 40% chance to poison each hit.
    • Innards Out Poliwag line (and drizzle for politoed of course)
    • Victory Star Starmie with Laser Focus and Prismatic Laser
    • Soul-Heart Luvdisc with huge defensive power
    • Pixilate/intimidate Snubbull (available on route 101)
    • Reckless Tauros with Head Charge
    • Tentacool line with Tangling Hair or water bubble
    • Moody Sunkern with seed bomb by lv19, gets Weather Ball, Synthesis and Solarbeam, and evolves into Drought Sunflora.
    • Hoppip line without offensive moves til it's Jumpluff but with stunning support ones all along, and also symbiosis then Prankster (or Fluffy)
    • Queenly Majesty Nidoqueen and King's Shield Nidoking, or if you don't like that you can have them with Poison Touch
    • not to mention Flame Body now offering Typhlosion a 30% chance for its own contact moves to cause burns.
    • Schooling Exeggcute lmao. a swarm of eggs
    • Feraligatr with bite moves causing critical hits every time
    • Pidgeot has Delta Stream or No Guard
    • Girafarig turns every battle it's involved in into an Inverse battle.
    • Lunatone sets Gravity on switching in,
    And more. Loads more!
  • New difficulty curve! All wild encounters are at roughly the level your team should be at, so switching Pokémon in and out is really easy and rewarding. XP yields are slightly lower early on to compensate for this, which means Nuzlockes are hopefully relatively more challenging than usual.
  • New Trainer fights for many trainers (and all the important characters) especially later in the game. Expect to get danced over by Tate & Liza, sharked by Archie, rused by Sidney, and completely rinsed by Wallace, whose battle takes place in semi-permanent rain

A comprehensive list of all Pokémon's Learnset and Ability changes comes packaged up with the rom, along with the .ini (for pge, if you want to make your own tweaks), and some patches for optional features. There's one to allow revives to be used in battle again

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

This rom is complete, and has a good amount of postgame from emerald, but I still occasionally update it with new features. This used to happen pretty regularly, but now I've switched to just doing larger, more infrequent patches, with more playtesting (shoutout to the discord server). I'm also stopping posting playthrough help in the thread, cause man it's too much of a task! Will respond to bug reports tho.

Puzzle Walkthroughs and hints (Pa'i canyon, victory road, and the Second Bike. (There are image gifs in the discord)
Spoiler:
Northmost item, route 119.
Spoiler:
You will need a pokemon with Hyper Cutter and Cut. Try trapinch

The second bike
Spoiler:
located on route 129, on an island to the east. I'm sure you can find it, even though the itemfinder's not picking it up! Follow the flowers.



Pa'i canyon
Left boulder puzzle:
Spoiler:
when you push a boulder down the slope, you keep bumping into it and it goes all the way to the bottom. However, when you push one boulder into another, it doesn't move!
All you have to do is move the lower boulder up until it's 2 steps below the way to the item, then push the upper boulder all the way down until it hits the lower boulder. Then dismount your bike and grab the item.

Right boulder puzzle
Spoiler:
When you ride up the mach bike slope, you can take one step left, then fall back to the bottom. The rest should be self explanatory. (Do it again).

Hidden cave in the south
Spoiler:
You can reach this from under the bridge on its left.

Walking through trees
Spoiler:
If you look closely, the trees you can walk through look slightly offset from the rest. Use this to spot paths to items

Cave warp maze
Spoiler:
Just re-enter every cave as you exit it. Eventually you'll wind up coming out of the far rightmost cave. Talk to the boulder on your left. A door will open. Go through it.

Braille
Spoiler:
If you could access the third braille sign, it would say "of". What might "Triangle" be referring to?


Victory road
3 magnemite
Spoiler:
One of these magnemite can move up 2, down 2, left 2 or right 2. That means it can only reach one of the bridge opening crystals. The other two can move three spaces in one of their directions. Use this to move them to the other crystals, a bit like how you did with the last puzzle.

Ice puzzles
North-west puzzle
Spoiler:
Use surf

Strength puzzle
Spoiler:
For both of these, you need to move the boulder that you can reach into a spot with a circle on it. You can probably figure the rest out from there.


Hidden Item strength puzzle
Spoiler:
You'll need a boulder, and a good sense of whereabouts the itemfinder is pointing you. Plan your route!


Ice puzzle floor 2.
Spoiler:
This requires pictures to explain. It is possible, though! Just like the previous floor, you need to move these boulders to specific locations, but I'll leave it to you to work out where they are. Good luck.


FAQ/walkthrough
Spoiler:
Where's Cut?
Spoiler:
House to the left of the pokemon center in Rustboro

Where do I go after Flannery?
Spoiler:
Petalburg Gym, but you may as well do some exploring beforehand. I recommend the desert, fiery path, and route 115!

What's this Devon scope and where do I get it??
Spoiler:
It's given to you on a bridge on route 120.

What's going on with this item ball in a tricky puzzle location!?
Spoiler:
Check "Secret Stuff"

Why isn't e.g grovyle a dragon!?
Spoiler:
I mean while it'd make it "better" in the sense that it'll be stronger, it is also weird as hell. if you have any type change requests please use pge, I gave you the roms.ini file to make it work


Team Recommendations:
Spoiler:
If your team seems samey, flesh it out with one or two of these for some variety:

Baton Passer (Aipom, mawile, Ledian, Furret, Ninjask, plusle/minun) or Stat boost guy (Illumise, Volbeat, Omanyte, Clefable, Shedinja, Claydol)
Tank (Shroomish, Sudowoodo, Parasect, pain splitters like misdreavus, or anything with a huge defense stat like Torkoal or Chimecho)
Fast High Attack Thing just to beat wild mons easily (dodrio, fearow, mankey, electrike, vulpix)
Terrain/Weather User (Sandshrew, Larvitar, Swinub, Politoed/Pelipper, Sunflora/Torkoal, Chinchou/ Magneton, Chikorita, Stantler, Swablu) This game really rewards you for using weather, not just for rain and sun but for Hail and Sand too. Hail now boosts ice type defense by 1.5x.
Any aromatherapy user. There's too many things with access to tm05 Aromatherapy to list, but also stuff with Milk drink or Softboiled (miltank, cacturne, Chansey) is really cool.

Really fun team: Aipom, Geodude, Pikachu, Sunkern, Illumise, Nidoqueen
You could also pick all 3 Pokémon with Dancer (grumpig, Spinda, Ludicolo)


Fun monotype runs:
Grass (easy mode) (parasect, treecko, sunkern, hoppip, Roselia, shroomish, Lileep, Cacnea)
Bug (Also pretty easy) (volbeat, illumise, butterfree, yanmega, dustox, anorith, venomoth)
Normal
Psychic
Electric (Elekid core, Mareep, Pikachu, Static in general)
Ice (hail team with Swinub and Seel core)
Bug (Shuckl, Spinarak, Ledyba, volbeat, beedrill)
Poison (Nidorina core. Poison types now take 25% less damage from poisoned foes too, so toxic spikes in a poison monotype is great)


Known Bugs:
Spoiler:


Little glitches
Spoiler:

Not really bugs, just laziness, but like I'll put them here:
- Some moves have the same animations as others
- new mons have cries adapted from old ones
- Breeding is not updated to new mechanics. Everstone nature passing still works, and there is an IV perfecter, an ev resetter, and an ability switcher, but no destiny knot stuff because the alternatives I have provided are much less grindy.
-Battle Pyramid currently unavailable
-contests currently unavailable

Graphical inaccuracies
-Battle text boxes don't match the base game perfectly. e.g. there is no message for Misty Terrain blocking sleep, playing on battle style Shift sometimes announces all pokémon as if they're owned by the wrong people when sent out, defog and charge say the move name as their stat change, Stun Spore appears to trigger Stamina and Wonder Guard.
-acid spray and explosion can cause some comedy gold visual bugs in double battles (fixed by replacing the animations but do I want to? no)
-Steven appears as the player sprite for a couple seconds when fighting Maxie in Mossdeep Space Centre
- When the map is zoomed in, a scrambled part becomes visible at the top.
- Locations on the town map have not been adjusted to match the new maps at all.
- Explosion can cause graphical bugs

Oddities
- Certain status applying features (like synchronise or toxic orb) go through some immunities
- Trainers will rarely use Potions even when there's no health to heal.
- Shedinja can force opponents to switch, even if they only have one pokemon. They send out "nothing".
- [email protected] roams forever


Gamebreakers that should no longer be an issue
- The game may apparently hard-lock when approaching Rayquaza on Sky Tower. (please use VBA, or VBA-M and patch with LIPS. I believe these bugs are caused by emulators/flawed patching. I have not changed the rayquaza script from vanilla emerald.)
- Iapapa Berry may apparently crash the game when looked at in the bag. (please use VBA, or VBA-M, and patch with LIPS. I believe these bugs are caused by emulators/flawed patching. I have not edited the Iapapa item icon/bag data from vanilla emerald.)
- Prior to 4.1b, under certain conditions an enemy trainer’s ditto or pokemon with sketch can overload the battle engine’s memory, which can break checksums (creating a bad egg). There are no longer any trainers with either.
- Prior to 4.1b, when Flannery's Flareon infatuated a traded pokemon while it is disobeying orders, the traded pokemon turned into a bad egg. I've removed attract from Flannery's Flareon. Presumably, this bug was not limited to flannery.


Bugs that cause serious crashes
- When Ditto transforms into a Pokemon with Gravitate, the game crashes.
- Self-destruction moves used against certain pokemon by certain pokemon in certain conditions completely crashes the game. (details????) I've removed several instances of selfdestruction from several trainers, but there are some I will have missed.




VBA-M is thoroughly recommended as an emulator, as it's the one I use to test. It is also available on the largest number of platforms! Visual Boy Advance also works but may have teething issues and show a white screen - I've included a .sav file in the rom with a blank file. emulators on the PSP apparently also suffer similar issues to VBA
Please install only one Altered Emerald patch on a rom at a time. If you haven't played since before patch 3, it might be worth starting a new game, else you'll probably suffer from some serious teething issues with your save file.


Hope you enjoy! Please do drop me an honest rating out of 5 when you're done : )



The files below are legacy files, and the current patch is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17xgxS1bpMN9QvK9giu3cm2BOrHeJg7yW/view?usp=sharing

Chronosplit's also made you some patches that replace the gen 3 starters in this rom with the starters from gen 1 or gen 2.

Wait, what's the sideshow showcase?
EDIT: Oh, gotcha. Yeah, that is a grey area. It is actually more than just a 386 difficulty patch, I promise! The story progresses through routes in a slightly different order, and like I say, every route and city got a few tweaks, and so did every pokemon. It's like pokemon BW versus B2W2 level of changes.

edit 2: this post has aged badly lmao, I moved it to the sideshow showcase in like June, cause the storyline is nearly the same as emerald. I'd rather promise less and impress than promise more and disappoint

I do like it overall from the looks of it. Not gonna lie though, while on one hand the move/typing etc changes will make the game fresh but I kinda sorta dislike this as well.
Highly appreciate slight changes in maps and overall higher difficulty. I might try this hack later.

This looks great! you should think about patching in some mega evolutions tho, there are some pretty easy battle engines you can just apply with a patch, but you might have to mess around with offsets since you've already added a bunch of stuff

EDIT: btw, this is gonna get taken down p soon, you're not allowed to link directly to a rom file, you have to link a patch (ips or ups)

Just to warn that there IS swearing in this hack, caught a female Nidoran and it mentions the F word in her pokedex entry.

Why people insist in putting swearing in Pokemon I have no idea, but that's just me.
This is hilarious.

Imma patch this out, I thought id updated and removed it but apparently not! give me about an hour.
It's oddly funny having to veto a whole slew of my own dex entries for old edgy teen humour

EDIT: FIXED THIS!! ITS RUDE FREE AGAIN LADS

EDIT: btw, this is gonna get taken down p soon, you're not allowed to link directly to a rom file, you have to link a patch (ips or ups)
Also fixed this

Thanks for reading the rules for me, I'm really sorry guys, I literally just chucked the thread up and assumed I didn't need to check anything. Probs the most useful feedback I could have wished for lmao

EDIT:
Can you please provide another download link to the patch? I can't seem to be able to download it on my android browser and I don't want to download their app.
I've now also attached it to my post. If that doesn't work just hmu again!

Wow is this polished so far. I'm really enjoying the way you've utilized the basics of the game to the fullest instead of needing to artificially add features or anything like that.

Any hints for the condition for Splash to work?
I'm really sorry to say that Splash's move description of "deals huge damage under certain conditions" might just be a cheeky joke; Splash still does absolutely nowt! Have fun with hoppip!


EDIT: just patched out some expletives I missed. There were never any in the main story text iirc, just in the dex cause it's the oldest. Magikarp is also no longer called magikrap. If you bump into any more, hit me up #KeepThatERating

where is hm dive
dude you've gotten far, what the heck! How do you like it so far?

Dive is on route 135, south of Mt. Pyre on the town map. There's a girl with pink hair who gives it you. Should I put in a few more things pointing to her?

I feel like I might give this a try, if you keep on working on it. I do like difficulty patches and ones with the complete pokedex but I feel like you could try to add more features like mega evolutions or BW repel system which are in a lot of new rom hacks. It does look good though, I have been waiting for some Hoenn updates like a sequel or made in the DS style and this does look like what I've been asking for. You may want to check out Pokemon Ruby 2 and Sapphire 2 in the Progressing Hacks thread.

I agree with BW repels, although I really think the random encounters give routes a lot of feel. It'd be an improvement, though, so I'll probably chuck it in next time I inevitably update lol

I thought about Mega evolutions, and I think they're unnecessary. If I just chuck them in, it'll screw the difficulty unless I put them in postgame, and much as I've done some charming price reductions in the battle frontier I really doubt anyone will keep playing on once they beat wallace!
Then, even if I bash and tweak them into a less powerful shape, it turns out that megas are essentially less fun than a thunderstone evolution. The only difference is that you have to click more stuff in battle and you have less customisation options because your item slot is gone. If I wanted to add in a mega banette, I would instead change banette's base stats and ability, or do it as a moon stone evo. I'm definitely not going to do this, I don't think it adds anything positive.

In my mind, this hack's virtually in it's final state. I might get myself a moves and abilities patch and make use of that, but honestly there's more than enough different strategies to use already, and I don't think it needs more. I also have uni commitments! I'll wait until someone plays it and says it needs more variety.

Edit 1.5yrs later: "in my mind this hack's virtually in its final state" absolutely psyduckin wrong I redid virtually every map, updated the battle engine, added two more routes, added all gen 4 evos and several fancy new moves, and then chucked in a full visual overhaul lol


Give it a shot though, I bet you'll have fun! Thanks a bunch for the recommendation.

EDIT: Credit to danny0317 and Phenom2122, what absolute machines, I now have the full BW repel system working ingame!!!

Sorry to be that guy, but I'm pretty sure rattata is spelled wrong in the game as ratatta.
That's an extra old in joke. Is carvanha by any chance spelled carvahna?
EDIT: yep, wow. It is. I never thought anyone would spot that!
it's fixed, but I'm not releasing a patch just yet

#cybercrime_central on the Nuzlocke Forum Discord server got a bunch of good laughs at your Pokedex entries, thank you so much.

The only issue I see in the screenshots is the blue-roofed gym, which looks ugly as hell. Otherwise, this looks pretty neat! I like how you make the grass bridges. Pretty interesting.

Porygon -> Porygon2 @lv22
Porygon2 -> Porygon @lv23

What does this mean exactly? Will Porygon2 keep trying to devolve into Porygon at every level or something?
Yeah what's up with that? Been thinking of using Porygon2 in this hack since its one of my fav pokemon but I don't want it to..."devolve" after one level.

Where can you find Porygon anyway? Not sure if I reached that point yet or passed it by mistake.
