Pokémon: The Corrupted Wishes


⋆ Introduction
Hello, I'm Fencer. And this is my first ROM hacking project! I've been browsing for resources on this forums for more than a year without participating in talks. But now, I'm here! Thank you for giving your attention to this little thread. I hope you enjoy!

⋆ Story

This story takes place in a different universe from the original universe. You should forget about the original story playing this hack.
You are a boy named Noire (or your preferred name) who has been living with Froakie since he was a kid. Today, the Purla Pokémon League is now open for challengers. The path to your Pokémon Champion dream is now open! But you're not the only one. Your childhood friend, Julia, has the same dream as yours. Get your Pokédex from Professor Kao and begin your journey! Ah, don't worry! The story isn't just about collecting Gym Badges and beat the Champion. You'll see in the gameplay, good luck!
In-depth story...
Spoiler:
There was a Pokémon that grant wishes to people, Jirachi. Some wished for success, for love, or even for lust. One day, there was a man with a broken desire. He told Jirachi to grant his wish, a broken one. The wish was granted... no one knows what the wish was... But you can expect that it was corrupted.


⋆ Features
- Harder gameplay, the level curve will be based on my indication. Also, you can only use 3 Pokémon.
- No more shouting, the game is 99% decapitalized.
- 1st-7th Generation Pokémon with a custom Pokédex.
- Clean DS-styled sprites.
- Updated mechanics such as BW Repel System, Poison Survival at 1 HP, etc.
- Updated moves and abilities.
- Minor changes to tilesets.
- More features I forgot to mention.

⋆ Purla Region Pokédex

⋆ Bugs
- Roost freezes the game, don't use that move.
- Grammatical errors. You know, English isn't my native language.
- If you find more, please report on this thread, or VM me.

⋆ Q&A
Q: Why can't I get into the Gym?
A: You can get into the Gym with only 3 Pokémon, no more and no less.

Q: When is the next release date?
A: It depends on my free time and motivation. The only thing I can tell is the next release will end at the Fifth Gym battle.

⋆ Download
- Alpha 1 - Ends at the Second Gym battle.
- Alpha 2 - Ends at the Third Gym battle.
- Alpha 2.1 - Ends at the Third Gym battle. (And you can now progress a few more steps from the last patch.)

Be sure to use a clean "Pokémon - Fire Red Version (U)(Squirrels)" ROM!

The story so far looks good and I wish you good luck for your project. (Minor thing I noticed from the screenshots. The Red BW Sprite in the Intro seems very small and you can also use a bigger one. That would seem normal then.)

Really digging what I'm seeing, the story has caught my attention. Although I do want to ask if you will be upgrading the battle backgrounds for a more DS looking vibe.

I've seen people do challenges in which they can only challenge Gyms with the same amount of Pokemon that the Gym Leader has. But a ROM hack that actually forces you to only bring 3 Pokemon to any Gym? Interesting!
Do you like Pokemon battles? If yes, then come play The Great Pokemon Battle 9!

I really like the 3 Pokemon rule in the gyms, but for the league instead of 3 I think you should expand it to 4 or 5 as PP will run out quite quickly(unless ethers/elixirs are buyable)
Looking for somebody who is experienced at editing tiles and battle backgrounds. PM me if you wish to

Thank you for all your kind comments!
About the story, I think I will include the in-depth story once the game progress itself reaches the point of that story.
About the battle backgrounds, I'd say I will change it, the DS sprites would look very good with new backgrounds anyway. :)
And the Three Pokémon rules, don't worry, it's just 3vs3 to make it feels like Battle Frontier.

What plans do you have for the League? Can we only use 3 Pokemon for the entire League? Or can we enter the League with a full team, but only use 3 of them for each battle, and we can use different members for each battle?

As far as I've planned, you can only use 3 Pokémon in the League. But your Pokémon will be healed after each battle. Oh, the League will be in tournament-styled. It will be a diffrent experience from original games.

I know I shouldn't release too often, but here goes the Alpha 2. This Alpha will end at your first encounter will the mint-haired trainer at Forterra City.
Ah, I also edited the thread, you can see some changes there.

What's new?

- New title screen.
- New battle backgrounds.
- New textboxes.
- Fixed some bugs.
- You will be almost involved in the new story, almost.
- More things I forgot to mention.

This game looks pretty cool! just finished Alpha 1 and here you are dropping Alpha 2, my only question is : how to get
HM Cut again? Just loaded my old save file from Alpha 1 but I don't know where to go or what to do right now,
I added an NPC into the Port Breeze Pokémon Center, try re-entering if neccesary. And thank you for playing!

Just finished Beta 2; loving it so far, keep up the good work!

BUGS:
- the TM for Bullet Seed and the HM for Flash do not work. They show up as "No?0", have 255 Power, Accuracy and PP, and the description appears to be for a Rare Candy.

:)
Thank you and sorry for a very late reply. I was busy with uni works. I tested the patched ROM, but I don't seem to experience those bugs. I think you patched to a modified ROM? If not, you can try patching again, maybe the patching progress itself was the case.

No worries. To the best of my knowledge it's a clean rom - Squirrel, never had issues before - but will give another shot.

Also, I use VBA; might that have something to do with it?

I also use VBA, I even tried playing the 'patched' ROM on VBA and my Android phone. Maybe try redownloading the ROM?

So I've been playing and the game really keeps up to my standards in a ROM Hack nowadays. The only thing it lacks is the Exp. gain upon capture which I'm guessing you purposely never implemented to add up to the difficulty. Also, I can see that you have a talent for music hacking, but it's such a shame that the city/town/route/battle themes are from R/S/E since I'm expecting a custom soundtrack in the game since the title screen/intro features a custom soundtrack. Hoping for more songs in the future though.

Thank you very much! You know what, I might implement that on the next release because I just forgot. xD
And about music hacking, I wouldn't take credit, some custom musics are built-in in the ROM-base I used. And unfortunately, I have no knowledge about composing music at all. I don't plan adding new music at the moment.

Yet another update. Many testers, including my friend and myself, noticed that the level curve isn't "hard" but "unfair." So I decided to overhaul the level curve to be fair. (I don't like grinding non-stop, do you?)
Here's the new release. What's new?

- Overhauled level curve. No more hardcore grinding!
- Changed some music to custom ones, using Squeetz's patch to the fullest.
- Fixed Roost freeze, but the move's effect will be exactly same as Recover. (No type change when used by Flying-type.)
- You can now walk to Lablaz Town, but the town will still be empty since it isn't completed. :P
- You can now reach the point when your character finally talk!
