Story and goals:
The "story" takes place on Dumbdumb Island, where some hikers have been stealing pokémon. This is a very short and gameplay focused game, so don't expect a lot of amazing storytelling. And the writing is pretty cringe. My goal with this hack was to just create fun and somewhat intense double battles. The difficulty should be higher than the regular games, assuming you don't overlevel.

  • Every trainer battle is a double battle
  • Increased accuracy for certain moves (100 for Will-O-Wisp, Toxic, Leech Seed, Disable, Fury Cutter, Rock Tomb, Mud Shot, Icy Wind)
  • Four gyms and the elite four (so about 10 - 15 hours worth of content)
  • Gen 3 National Dex pokémon, but most high tier mons aren't available to the player
  • A relatively forgiving level curve (highest level mons: gym 1: 12, gym 2: 16, gym 3: 20, gym 4: 24, elite four: 28)
  • Move tutors that can be reused


The game is complete. There won't be any updates unless major bugs are found.

I didn't have any direct help but thanks to the creators of all these amazing programs: XSE, AdvanceMap, AdvanceTrainer, PokemonGameEditor, A-Tack, Item Editor, Advance IntroEd, unLZ-GBA, APE.

Just finished playing. It was pretty fun.
I really enjoyed the variety of wild Pokemon available to use.

As for the difficulty, I personally didn't find it that hard except for the second gym leader. I think you were a little too generous with providing perfect counters for the boss battles in the adjacent areas.
Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, I think you're right about me being too generous with the counters. I guess my reason was to discourage just using the same Pokemon for the whole hack but it definitely hurt the difficulty. How did you find the level curve though?

I also forgot to mention that I removed EVs but that probably wasn't very noticeable :D
