Rom Base: FireRed [BPRE]
Language: English
Creator: AquamarineVaporeon/Vaporeon22

Pokémon Aquamarine is a ROM hack of FireRed that takes place in Manta, an entirely new region based off South America. The player character mysteriously turns into a Mew, and takes on a journey as a Pokémon trainer to figure out how to turn back to human. Aquamarine has been in development since 2014, and was fully released in Version 1.0.0 as of October 2019. Currently, the ROM hack is fully playable as of Beta version 1.1.4. If anyone happens to find any bugs, please let me know!

It also comes in different colors!
Pokémon Aquamarine is one out of nine variants of the same game, each corresponding with Eevee or one of its evolutions. There aren't many major differences between the variations, but the title screens are different, and the team your rival uses changes depending on the version. If you're unsure of which to play, I suggest going with your favorite!
These variations include:
Opal- Eevee
Aquamarine- Vaporeon
Topaz- Jolteon
Garnet- Flareon
Amethyst- Espeon
Onyx- Umbreon
Turquoise- Leafeon
Quartz- Glaceon
Zircon- Sylveon

If you're curious about what differences it makes to the Rival's team...
The Eevee your rival decides on depends on the intro text of the Eevee you decide on.
(For example, if you choose the Eevee that likes to swim, your rival chooses the energetic one that later evolves into Jolteon)

Aquamarine/Topaz/Garnet: Rival's team contains either Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon
Amethyst/Onyx/Zircon: Rival's team contains either Espeon, Umbreon, or Sylveon
Opal/Turquoise/Quartz: Rival's team contains either Eevee, Leafeon, or Glaceon

Pokémon Aquamarine starts out with the player character having a strange dream. The local Professor tells them that they've turned into a Mew. A group of Scientists inspired by the Mewtwo incident in Kanto are supposedly responsible for the sudden change. When the player wakes up, they find out that they've actually turned into a Mew. It is then then up to the player to figure out how to return to their human body.

The plotline diverges whether the player chose to be male or female.

In the male plotline, the player turns into a regular Mew. The following spoilers contain lore and some gameplay spoilers.
In this timeline, Team Tactix obtains a bit of Mew's DNA. They reverse-engineer this DNA and are able to synthesize whatever Pokémon they desire in the future. This sudden influx of genetically engineered Pokémon causes the future's ecosystem to collapse, so that timeline's Celebi goes back in time to prevent Team Tactix from creating that future. In the process of genetic experimentation with Mew's DNA, Team Tactix manages to synthesize a Shiny Mew.

In the female plotline, the player turns into a shiny Mew. The following spoilers contain lore and some gameplay spoilers.
In this timeline, the leader of Team Tactix caught a Shiny Celebi in the past, which gives him an obsession with Shiny Pokémon. When the player shows up, the Team Tactix leader is determined to capture this Shiny Mew that appeared out of nowhere, but fails and only manages to obtain a DNA sample. He tries to reverse-engineer the DNA sample, but is unable to synthesize a clone out of it. Instead, he manages to figure out when Mew used to live on Earth and uses Shiny Celebi to travel back in time and capture Mew.

Aquamarine incorporates a lot of themes from both science and science fiction, including:
Time Travel
Parallel Universes
Earth Science/History
Ecosystem Conservation

Just downloaded it,is my evee starter supposed to be shiny or did i just get super lucky?(playing as the girl character)
Vague spoiler:

The Eevee isn't explicitly scripted to be shiny, but there definitely is something going on. Depends on how adventurous you are at the start of the game.

Explicit spoiler:

Finding Stardust usually guarantees that the next Pokemon is shiny

This sounds dope. I really liked your intro, glad that you decided to finish an old project. I'm planning on playing this tonight, would it be a bad idea to do a nuzlocke on my first play through?
Thanks! Really appreciate it! I tried to make the gameplay a good balance between being both challenging and not requiring ridiculous amounts of grinding with nuzlocke runs in mind. It definitely helps knowing what you're up against beforehand, but going in blind could prove to be a fun experience.
