Things to Note as of 5/9/2018:
A Walkthrough will be ready soon to be a companion to the hack. Most likely for the first half of the game, you will not really need it, and as a result it would mainly serve as Wild Pokemon encounters, and a bit of an authors notes/storytelling style that is sure to leave you with at least a smirk.

Intro
Hi all,
Pokemon Wish is my very first rom hacking project, but don't let that fool you. This hack is the culmination of almost 3 years of planning, trial and error and passion! This hack is also my way of honoring a deceased friend of mine, Jade Myers. May she rest in peace.
So without further ado, lets get into the nitty gritty of what this is, and what separates it from other hacks.

Story
The Acromian civilization has survived for thousands of years, growing from humble trading ports to large empires. An ancient war began, decimating not only Acromia, but the world. To ensure peace and prosperity, a young Lord appealed to the Wishmaker and its five keys to end the senseless violence.
One thousand years later, a young hero is visited by a mysterious force and sent off on a journey to help a drunken Professor. With Acromia under a new government, and a cult seeking to revive the Wishmaker, the hero must tread lightly in a foreign world, and still try to retain their youthful innocence.
Why did Acromia suddenly change its political system?
Why does the Black Blood clan seek to revive the Wishmaker?
Who or what is the mysterious being guiding you?
Will you or your brother challenge the Acromian League first, and who will fill up more of the Pokedex?
All of these questions and more will be asked and answered. It is up to you- the player (be it Cole or Egypt) to figure them out.

FAQ's

Fire Red 1.0, try looking for (Squirrels) version for best results.

(Thanks PokemonAce123)

Where do I get the National Dex?
It will be given to you shortly after the first gym. This is done on purpose, so do not mind that a few Pokemon aren't registered at first.

What can I expect?
A plot that takes itself seriously, but isnt afraid to poke fun. Some fourth wall breaks occur. Doesn't deviate TOO much from the general formula.

When Can I Expect Updates?
They come when they come, I have college and work to balance as well. I try to work on this every single day, however. I won't keep you waiting too long.

Are Updates Compatible with Previous Saves?
Not entirely sure, but no reason why they should not be.

How many Pokemon are in the hack?
Short Answer: 386+ Alolan forms + Mega evolutions, spanning from all 7 Generations. Favoritism shown to Gen 1, 3 and 4.
Long Answer: (DO NOT REVEAL IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED ON THE LINEUP AND WANT TO FIND OUT YOURSELF)

So, I just finished the Demo and I have to say, I liked it.
Interesting dialogues, well crafted characters and situations, an okay distribution of pokmon and aside from their simplicity, the maps look fine.

Now, while I enjoyed this beta, I couldn't avoid finding tons of minor issues.
Only one of them is game breaking amd since you're already aware of it, I'll just skip it.
These issues are not a big deal at all, but it would be nice if they were addressed at some point down the road, like in the final release for example.
I wrote them down in a text document, here they are:
Spoiler:
Weird stuff:
-The "Wish Version" logo could be better (the current font is kinda ugly and it feels just a little bit farther from the "Pokmon" logo than it should be).
-The position of the Missingno. sprite in the first showpokepic is slightly off.
-After speaking with the mysterious entity, the camera doesn't go back to normal.
-The OW and Intro Sprites of Prof. Aspen are different compared to his portrait, which has a different hairstyle and costume.
-James Woods has kind of a weird bug. https://streamable.com/fa77k
-Minor tile error. https://i.imgur.com/v2BxR2M.png
-The OW and Battle Sprites of the Lass in Route 1 don't match.
-The girl buried in the sand in Gira Village and the Old Man in Route 28 suddenly pop up when you move from one map to the other quickly. That's because they're not being loaded until you move to their respective map.
-The OW and Battle Sprites of Alex are different compared to his portrait, which has have a different hairstyle (Hilbert's) and costume.
-The defeat text of the Picnicker Alice who's in Route 2 has a weird font color. https://i.imgur.com/ReVMLs6.png
-Thanks to pickup and the Nuggets you get, you can buy 99 status-healing berries (1980 coins, it's extremely cheap) as soon as you reach Ionia City.
-You shouldn't let the Player walk over here. https://i.imgur.com/chC59Ar.png
-Zaph's OW Sprites and Portrait don't match.
-After getting a Soothe Bell from the Power Plant's director, the camera doesn't go back to normal.
-The border of that lava pool looks like it's from RSE or FRLG. It looks weird along the rest of the stone tiles. https://i.imgur.com/kDdsAwM.png
-The OW Sprites of Carlos are different compared to his portrait, which has have a different hairstyle (Cheren's).
-The OW and Battle Sprites of the Crush Girl don't match, different hair color.
-The OW and Battle Sprites and the Young Couple of trainers in the Route 4 don't match.
-Minor tile error. https://i.imgur.com/olh1eB6.png
-Minor tile error. https://i.imgur.com/nIhZkAQ.png
-Minor dialogue error. https://i.imgur.com/R7Ehw4z.png
-Laura's battle sprite's palette seems to be different compared to her OW Sprites and portrait.
-You forgot an empty space between [player] and received. https://i.imgur.com/HOHJzSS.png


I'll be looking forward to the next version, good luck Leon! :D

Hi, this hack looks promising u should make a discord for this hack to
I have been mulling it over. I might make one in the future.

Did you customize the Pokedex yourself?
The Pokedex is entirely custom made. About 40% of all time I've spent on the hack went into just the Pokedex itself, and I admittably want to avoid it for the rest of my life XD. (unless theres a bug...)

Is the mega evolution similar to XY or it's just outside of battle?
Mega Evolution is present as it is in Generation 6, thanks to Touched's source code. However as of May 4th's Demo, there is no mention or use of it. You will have access to it around the 7th gym-ish.

So, I just finished the Demo and I have to say, I liked it.
Interesting dialogues, well crafted characters and situations, an okay distribution of pokmon and aside from their simplicity, the maps look fine.

Now, while I enjoyed this beta, I couldn't avoid finding tons of minor issues.

I'm having a bug where if I view the pokemon menu, and then try to exit the screen will go black. This happens when I try to use healing items, or if I want to switch my pokemon.
Where does this occur, and what emulator are you using? Could you send screenshots or more details to my Discord?

If I may ask, why is there a character named "3"? It gives 1 exp and it seems to have a low capture rate... I found it when I went to the James woods. I also found a pokemon named "-"
