Downloads



Beta 1.1
Release Date: 2017-12-28
Notes: One badge is still obtainable, I decided to release my latest version of Paragon before I began work on my new project. Read the "readme" file for details.

Beta 1.0
Release Date: 2017-07-11
Notes: One badge is obtainable, the beta ends after you get it and head to Route 104. There's currently a bug in the game that makes some events replay and giving the rival the incorrect team. I therefore recommend the usage of savestates. Using the "Save" option in the menu activates the bug. Also if you were to loose against the 1st gym leader, you won't be able to rebattle her, I therefore recommend saving before battling her.

- Currently on hold, working on another project

So I did some beta testing before this release and aswell played the beta until the end, only thing I have to say that this is a really good Pokemon game. Balance is good, difficulty isn't too high unlike other hacks and the fact that I can **** over my rival by picking a Pokemon that counters his after him is very nice. One tip for everyone, SAVE STATES! There are many multi choice stories in this game and some in the beta. If one wants to experience the entire game fully save states are in order.

Also Tainted, glad you put me in the credits :) and this picture is outdated.

Thanks alot and no problem, you helped me, and I suppose I should update that screenshot. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for playing.

Woah. This looks impressive.
Thanks, I hope you enjoy playing it.

Looking great so far man! Good luck!
Thanks, same goes to you, hope to see that hack soon.

Woah, A new hack in this section. I really like your mapping style. What has really grabbed my attention is the choice of joining Team Rocket or Aqua. I am really looking forward to this when a longer Beta comes out.
Thanks, I'll try my best to keep it interesting, it'll be a while though, since the scripts get so long, and I want to try to make it interesting.

"Apply the hotfix after you apply the beta to fix some errors."

Are you sure? Because if I apply the hotfix directly to an Emerald rom, it works fine; I can even choose a Gen 4 starter when I couldn't before. But if I apply it onto Beta 1 of this game, it gives me back Emerald (after using the ignore option in NUPS).

Thanks for addressing the issue, it seems I made a error whilst making the hotfix. I updated the Beta 1.0 to have all the fixes the Hotfix had.

Hey!
Really enjoyed the time of the beta, it was really nice map and everything.
One thing tho, at the start it seems that I can't pick some Pokemons... it seems to be random, but it says "Don't be greedy you can only choose one.".
Other than that 10/10 hack can't wait for updates
That's a pretty good rating, thanks for playing it, as for the bug, I fixed it earlier today. I uploaded a fixed Beta 1.0, it's the same link. It was a hotfix but I merged it with the beta since it couldn't be patched on the old beta itself. Some minor issues has been fixed, including the bug where you can't choose certain starters.

Thanks, if you'd like, you can join the Discord server, although it isn't very active small updates should pop up now and then.

looks great but will control myself until atleast 4-5 badges are available. Good luck!
I think that's a good idea, by then it should have alot more content, right now it don't have that much to offer, thanks!

Hmmm... seems an interesting game.
I hope you like it, and thanks!

well, couldn't resist myself. Played it but found a bug, the events keep on reoccurring. I believe the variables are not put in the scripts, but whatever the bug, I hope it's fixed. Aesthetically beautiful and organised by the way.

Probs the cleanest Beta in this section. Neat game bro! Can't wait for this game to be complete.
You think so? Thanks, loving that avatar.

I just gave the game a quick test, and everything seems to be working as intended, try downloading again and see if it works, make sure you patch the correct rom.
At some point I updated the Beta 1.0 and applied some fixes.

Thanks, glad you like it, I try my best. I'm working on the next beta right now, alot of graphical updates will come, mainly to the playable character. So stay tuned for a update. I don't know when It'll be released, but I'm working hard.

Alot of small bug fixes will also be made, and some improvements and ofcourse gameplay up to the second gym.

Daer Sie or Madam,

How are you? I hope you are fine.

I have found a bug. After you lose against the first gym leader, you cannot rematch because the battle dont start after speaking to the gym leader.

I hope you can fix it, like the hole in my heart.

Yours sincerely

Mr. NiceGuy
Thank you I'm doing just fine.

I was notified about this bug a while ago, and only recently updated the op and added a note saying that you should save before the gym battle. It will be fixed in the next beta, which I'm working hard on.

A small update on the next beta, not too much though.
DNS (Day/Night System) has been added to the game and depending on if it's night or day, people might be gone or some may appear only during the night or day, and people may say something different, the playable character has also gotten a unique sprite, stay tuned!
