Hi! I’m Petuuuhhh. I am the leader of Team Salamence. Check this post to see what Team Salamence is: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=399515

Anyway, we’re making a hack of Pokémon FireRed called Pokémon Darkness Falls. It is set in the Oneira Region. The player will start in Unasia Town, a farm town. The player will journey across Oneira for the eight gym badges. However, a great evil lurks. Darkrai’s nightmare-inducing power is being exploited by Team Zamrat. The region is being terrorized by nightmares used as leverage for Team Zamrat. Can the player stop Team Zamrat from unlocking Darkrai’s second and third, most powerful, form? If not, all of Oneira will be cast into Darkness, and life for humans and most Pokémon will cease to exist.

This hack will feature a great deal of improvements to FireRed, such as a Physical / Special split, Gen 4 exp. system, etc. I will also be changing stats, types, abilities, movesets, etc. in an option “non-faithful” patch. This hack will feature all 807 Pokémon, plus Alolans, Megas, new Megas, Oneiran forms, and Shadow Pokémon. I am looking for a way to implement an EV-IV screen mapped to a button, in-game cheats, a debug menu, a snag ball mechanic, a music player, a Shadow Pokémon purification chamber, a Defog HM, and a Nuzlocke option.

We have a pre-demo out with all the necessary information on the progress of the game contained therein. If you are interested, I strongly suggest playing it to see how far we have progressed with the game.

My Hacking Skills: Proficient with Gen 3 tools that edit basic things such as stats, types, and mapping. Also can use HxD to change bytes that have been documented.

Story
Darkrai is being controlled by the evil Team Zamrat to become its true, terrible form Darkrai-Primal, a form as strong as Arceus, which is what it was before it became good. Darkrai-Shadow is its in-between phase, a phase as strong as Kyurem. Darkrai is giving the region of Oneira nightmares. Cresselia knows of the ancient story of how Darkrai’s Primal transformation energy was sealed into a stone. It informs the player of this, and warns the player that it must not let Darkrai transform into its primal state. Zygarde only knows that Darkrai is gathering a tremendous amount of energy, and picks up its scent near the beginning of the story when Darkrai is seen in an Onerian town. I haven’t come up with a reason why it is in the Onerian town. It may be carrying out a mission of Team Zamrat.

Zygarde and Cresselia help the protagonist along the journey. Cresselia joins the protagonist and opens up portals to and from the Shadow World, the land where Darkrai grows in power by absorbing energy from the dreams of Pokemon and people. At one point, Cresselia will open a portal for the player and Zygarde to go through in order to battle the seven original Ultra Beasts and Necrozma. Zygarde will be after Darkrai throughout the story.

Necrozma and the Ultra Beasts are trying to harvest enough Dark Energy to enable Darkrai to transform; at least that’s what the protagonist thinks. The protagonist’s rival is the son of the leader of Team Zamrat. He will be evil but will eventually become good after learning the extent of Darkrai-Primal’s power. Salamence Apocalypse form, the dark dragon of the Apocalypse, is the secondary antagonist, and serves as the right hand of Team Zamrat. Team Zamrat is a cult that worships Salamence-Apocalypse. Yveltal is on Team Zamrat’s side, wanting to bring about the Apocalyse so that it can harvest the life energy of all affected by it. Xerneas is unaware of the rising threat. Arceus does not interfere because it knows of the prophecy of the protagonist, and its outcome. This is implied.

Necrozma tricks the player into defeating the Ultra Beasts, who are actually the key to unlocking Darkrai’s true form. They are the seven guardians of the passage to Giratina-Origin, the guardian of the Darkstone, the stone that transforms Darkrai-Shadow into its ultimate form. Dialga and Palkia do not interfere because they know the outcome as well. This is also implied. Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem are not aware of the rising evil. Necrozma is the evil trickster, tricking the protagonist jnto battling it because they think it has stolen the Darkstone, when in reality it is just a stone given dark properties by Necrozma’s magic, while Darkrai-Shadow acquires it and transforms into its Primal form.

In the end, the protagonist battles Darkrai-Primal as soon as it is awoken. The protagonist wins the battle, stopping Darkrai from taking over the world.

Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza do not interfere because they do not care.

              Thanks for the invite, but my kindle won't let me use Discord. Every time I try to launch it, it crashes immediately.

                Good news! The demo is being worked on! We don't have a definitive time frame, though. Right now we could still use some help on the following ends:
                -ASM
                -Tile Insertion
                -Scripting
                -Mapping

                Thank you,

                    For anyone who wants to test the game out, the Pokémon Darkness Falls v. 0.11 Patch download link is in the description.

                    Thank you,

                      Patch doesn't seem to work with FR 1.0 (or 1.1)

                      I'll have to see what's wrong.

                      Okay, the newest patch should work.

                      Thank you,

                      The newest .ups patch uses the 1636 - Pokemon Fire Red (U)(Squirrels) ROM as a base. So if you want to test the game out, patch the file to that, please.

                      Thank you,
