Fire Emblem is a tactics rpg that has been described as "anime chess".
This hack turns FE8 into a Pokemon game.

Why hack FE8? Why not hack Pokemon instead?
I don't like Pokemon's combat system.



Why are Pokemon on the map?
That's where you battle them.

Patch
Pokemblem.ups - Patch to Fire Emblem 8 (The Sacred Stones) U

Last updated: Jan. 29th 2021

Please report any bugs you find to me.

Development began in July 2020.



Re-live your journey through Kanto in this reimagining of Pokémon. Battle with your whole party at once, and devise strategies to take down the toughest foes. Catch and evolve the original 151 Pokémon as you train up your favorites. Enjoy balanced gameplay where grinding has little effect and swapping out team members may be the key if you’re struggling. You play your way in this fun, fast-paced game.

Example Combat:

Example Dialogue:

Various mechanics I had to code:

- Effective damage


- Promote on level up


& Many more


Transitioning:

I'm honestly surprised that they avent done this concept more following pokemon conquest, imagine if they did Let's Go in this style to give Kanto a truly unique spin.

Anyway I hope that given this is using fire emblem as a base that you flesh out the story some. The original red and blue were originally supposed to have points in plot similar tot he anime I recall, notably with more development on Team Rocket and in turn Mewtwo. It would ultimately benefit the basis of the game to have a more involved story to compliment the gameplay style.

So far it is primarily gameplay driven with not much dialogue. It would be nice to add more story elements to it, though I'd rather focus on just creating the areas & encounters for now.

If anyone wants to help with the writing, feel free to talk to me about it. Thanks.

Funnily enough, I'm not a huge fan of SRPGs like Fire Emblem, but I'd definitely still give this a shot, cause this looks really cool and clearly had a lot of effort put into it! Also love how you
Spoiler:
added a bit more charm to the characters, judging by the previews
(Spoiler tagged just cause the thing I'm talking about is under a spoiler). :D
Definitely keeping my eye on this.
I usually go by Cuprite or Kyu now.

This looks very interesting. Really funny how it's technically a Pokémon rom hack, being both a Pokémon game and a rom hack, despite being based on a non-Pokémon game.

I've got some questions for you, if you don't mind: Will it have perma-death like most of the FE games, or is it more Pokémon-style of post-battle/area revivals for all? Also, how much of the game is done?

I have never actually played Fire Emblem, ans this might just be a good way for to actually get into the franchise. Definitely looks like it's worth a spin.
Ayee I just dropped my latest single Soulace on all streaming platforms. This is a chill Lofi track that's very personal to me! I hope y'all enjoy!

I may eventually add an option to nuzlocke it, but it will never be the main mode. You can revive fainted Pokemon at the Pokecenters.

There's about 5 hours of gameplay currently.

Thanks for the support, everyone!

This looks super awesome! I’ve always wanted a fire emblem version of Pokémon! (I wasn’t impressed with Pokémon conquest). I will most definitely be playing it. Also, I totally understand you wanting to get the basic encounters and levels and such completed first, but I think adding a story following the adventures of Red from the Manga or something similar would be uniquely suited for this format, perhaps even better than traditional Pokémon.

Whatever you decide to do, I will definitely be playing your hack.

i think found bug
When i train weedle it did not evolve when you level it up to 7 but instead you need 54 more Exp before it evolve but did not gain any Stats bonus.

also another question this game is still not complete right?
There's about 5 hours of gameplay currently. I would like to continue making the game over time, so it is not complete in that sense.

Regarding evolving - it can only happen on player phase and will not happen until a unit acts. So if weedle levels up when being attacked by an enemy, it will not evolve until you do something with it (eg. Attack).

Really loved the game, but I noticed something, the MAG stat doesn't grow up no matter what. SO magical attacks are pretty useless so far.
Please re-download the patch and apply it. This has been fixed since about Jan 26th. The version downloaded between Jan 18 - Jan 25 has a bug where growth rates were lower than intended. Sorry 😅

This looks really interesting, i love Pokemon Conquest and i hope someone hackes soon. This is a good alternative and really clever too

I have a few questions, are you adding more pokemon? The fairy type? Mega Evolution? Z-Moves? I know obviously the project is in an early stage, i just want to know if this is something you have considered (if it's even possible)

So far it is primarily gameplay driven with not much dialogue. It would be nice to add more story elements to it, though I'd rather focus on just creating the areas & encounters for now.

If anyone wants to help with the writing, feel free to talk to me about it. Thanks.
Have you found someone yet? I can help with plotting and writing. I know it's Kanto but it would be nice if it's an AU (Alternate Universe) instead of an adaptation of the Manga

Basically no to all those questions - I will not be trying to re-create the fancy features from later gens. Except...
Spoiler:
your rival will cheat in the fights, using stuff you don't have access to.

I am limited to 255 classes, which includes NPCs and Objects such as pokeballs, so this game will most closely resemble gen 1 / gen3 remake.

I read the first few chapters of the manga and felt that it would not be suitable for a direct adaptation.

In terms of writing, please join the discord. I'd love to hear your ideas.
