One day, the Professor ask you all if you'd like to receive a rare Pokémon, all of you were surprised to this sudden gift, of course nobody declines it, but why where you given the Pokémon?

Bugs

This is not a bug but you can't name your starter, I couldn't get the call to work, although I put a name rater in route 2.

The egg in the hatch scene has a weird palette.

Hero fishing/cycling/surfing OW has a weird palette.

Sometimes when you enter starting town weird colors appear below the houses, this is very minior however.

A script in the first cave seems to deactivate/activate in som kind of way involving the use of repels.

The day-care is buggy, some text may appear weird and do not put 2 Pokémons in there, when you take them out the game crashes. Putting only 1 in seems to work fine though. I will look into this in the future.

Q/A

Q: Will You add later generation Pokémon?
A: Yes, I plan to add more Pokémons from the newer generations, how many? Don't really know, should be a handful though.

Note

If anyone would like to be a beta-tester, join my discord and i'll make it happen. You can also se updates, ask questions and post bugs there. It's more convenient. Everybody is welcome!

Firstly, its stunning....
Really like it...
You have become a good hacker since the last time...

And next thing,
Never expected my name in the credit list :P
you have credited me for natured coloured stats, and ev cap to 252 but thats wrong,
They ate the finding of someone else....
It would be better if you credit them and for me crediting the tool would be nice :)

Edit: i will be really looking forward to it.. and be sure to check the tool for updates :) which might be handy to you ;)

Ofcourse i'll credit you, you taught me alot about hacking ROM's in general, and helped me when I basically couldn't do anything ^^

I'll be sure to look up the colored stats and ev cap and give them credit and credit you for the tool once you release the credit list.

Look's interesting. I look forward to this!
Thanks for the support!

Just played the game and found some BugsBug1.png

Pokémon Diabound [Beta 1.0]_03.png

Pokémon Diabound [Beta 1.0]_02.png

Pokémon Diabound [Beta 1.0]_05.png

There are two bugs related to mapping,
and some more including the ow.. they dont appear properly,
and then somehow suddenly appear out of nowhere...
it can be fixed by keeping the ow away from the edge of the map :)

I am loving it, except that there are very few events...
I am running though the maps without any events
Just found an single event till now,
the battle with the guy with the spell...
I am almost out of the cave..
and my charmander is about to evolve. :)

Thanks for playing it in the first place and finding bugs. I will begin working on these bugs immediately.
And more events are sure to come in the future.

I'm very glad you enjoy it so far, for what it is, such a basic hack! ^^

I just finished the first beta! I really enjoyed it, though I did find a bug or two (which is to be expected; it's in beta stages). When I went to the egg shop, I tried purchasing a 5000 poke egg. Despite the fact that I had well over that amount, the shop owner continued to tell me that I didn't have enough money. I also found that when you reenter the cave after you fight team rocket and accidentally go back into the room they had previously been in, it replays the scene, just without the characters. However, this doesn't seem to cause any sort of changes to the game if you decide to not help the Cubone.
Can't wait for the next release! Hope it's soon!

Thank's for playing! Didn't think people would enjoy it so much, since it has no story or anything. Really appreciate it! ^^

I will look into the bugs that you found and work on them, thanks again for playing!

Beta 1.1 is being worked on, however the next release could come anytime, be it soon or late.

Love it. Want more.
Q: Will You add later generation Pokémon?
My rating (for now): 4/5

Sincerely,
King Crimson


P.S.: Cubone is broken in this ROM hack.
Wow, thanks for the support, never thought this would happen, thanks!

About new Pokemon, yes, I will add Pokémons from new generations, with their original cries and movesets (movesets may not be 100% accurate because lack of moves, same goes for abilities).
I may implement them in Beta 1.1 but nothing is for certain.

And I to noticed Cubone being op when testing it out, but that's just early in the game.

Thanks again for taking your time and playing, really motivates me!

Hi I've just downloaded diabound and first of all I would like to say this is an excellent hack so far, but I've beaten the first gym leader and now I can't find the rocket guy to continue the game. Is this all there is for now or just a bug? Speaking of which, sometimes when you catch or run away from a wild pokemon it will appear after the next wild pokemon you beat as if it was a trainer battle and that was their second pokemon, but with the same health as when you left it. Keep up the good work. I look forward to playing more

Thanks for taking your time and playing it first of all!

As for the grunt, you're supposed to head into the Museum front entrance and talk to the professor there, then walk east and talk to a wall between two bushes. It's kinda cryptic and I plan to make it more obvious in future releases.

And the bug i've never encountered so as of right now, I fear i cannot do so much about it, as long as it isn't game-breaking it should be fine, I assume it's not.
How often did you encounter this bug?

Oh okay thanks I'll give that a go then, thanks

As for the bug, it's far from game breaking. If anything its kind of useful to capture pokemon you accidentally missed. It does happen quite regularly, about 5-8 times since yesterday. Its like when you beat the wild pokenon, the victory music starts playing, but then there's a second pokeball belonging to the last trainer you defeated
Thanks for the quick reply and please keep up the good work

Okay so I defeated the rocket guys in the lair, now what do I do?
The beta ends there, kind of short, I know. But I just wanted to know what people thought so far of Diabound, and i'm very happy of the result.


Update
Just a quick update on the next Beta.
New Pokémon will be added in it, around 50-60, may be more.

Ahh okay. so far its a really nice game, well designed, just the right variation of pokemon, lots of cool features and no major story to slow it down. Some stuff could be made more obvious, but its only the first beta so I'm assuming you'll add a sign or something near the rocket lair wall, and a trainer or two in the gym. Still though I really enjoyed playing this hack, any idea when the next version will be released?
