Chaos Emerald v2.4!
WELCOME, to the absolutely CHAOTIC world of Pokémon Chaos Emerald!



Get ready to battle in some of the strangest and most unique battles you've ever battled in a pokemon game before! This is in no way, shape, or form a normal difficulty hack!

This is a funny little difficulty hack I've made that's full of things that pokemon fans love including some old beta pokemon that were scrapped long ago

Spoiler:



Lots of changes have been made to make the game better than ever!
Including no need to teach field HMs, more engaging and surprising battles, fairy type, night time, some new moves and abilities, and most important of all, the removal of that stupid fish gyarados (I hate gyarados!)
The game also features almost all of the pokemon from gens 4-7 including chatot (duh), riolu, solosis, alolan raichu, MEGA EVOLUTONS and much more! There's also a gen 8 pokemon line sneaking around in the shadows, can you find them?

Spoiler:


This fanhack also adds some fun quality of life features!
You can use your starter unevolved but with the stats of a fully evolved pokemon (level them up holding a regular potion at any evolution stage they'll turn into their X variants, which are basically the first stages of them but much more powerful (basically the first stages of them but with the stats of a fully evolved pokémon). You can switch back between the X forms and the fully evolved by having them level up holding a super potion). So now you can carry your cute little Torchic and Mudkip all the way to the Elite 4 without having to worry about them being too weak!

Spoiler:



You can even purchase rare candies!
In some pokemarts such as the rustbaro mart and ever grande city you can buy rare candies for a low price to prevent having to grind too much, they'd also be really useful if you feel the game is getting too difficult too. I don't recommended going too high over the gym leaders however or else the game will be too easy haha

I'm glad to announce that EV training is not required to finish the rom hack! I've beaten it twice with zero ev training whatsoever

The hack is basically complete and 100% playable from start to finish!

Pretty much all of the major battles are modified with fun including the first Gym Leader rematches and the Meteor Falls battle against Steven!

So please have fun playing my silly rom hack! There's a lot of surprises waiting for you...

Spoiler:


Included in the download link below is the Version 2.4 MilkyWay UPS patch file (released 9/24/21) , documentation that you should read, a small text file that teaches you how to patch if you don't know how, and details on how to get those sweet sweet mega evolutions!



WARNING: This hack doesn't support old VBA or mVBA, use a more accurate emulator like VBA-M 2.1.4! If you're playing on android I recommend John GBAC

EDIT: I'd love to hear any feedback about the rom hack!

Edit (9/24/21): Version 2.4 MilkyWay has been released! Adds in a new Mega Evolution, more backsprites for new additions, and improves more movesets!
2.4 will most likely be the last version update unless theres any bugs I need to fix. The game is basically 100% complete at this point, I hope you all enjoy it! I had a lot of fun making this hack, and I hope it puts a smile on your face!

HOW TO UPDATE: You need to use a clean unpatched emerald rom to patch the rom, then rename your .sav file to the new patched rom and it should work fine! Save the old patched rom using the in-game save option and rename the .sav file to the new patched rom, and now you can load the save file on the new patched rom! Make sure the .sav and the new patched rom are in the same folder or else it won't work! Also make backups just incase there's an error!

You can use the program ADVANCE MAP 1.95 from LUHO to view the wild encounters and GEN 3 TOOLS by KURAPIKA to view all the stats and ability changes. Extreame caution however as they contain major spoilers!

Deino has a 4% chance of appearing on route 112!
Also it evolves much earlier, it evolves into zweilous at level 30 and zweilous evolves into hydreigon at level 40!
Nice, thanks for telling me. And extra props to you for lowering the evolution levels for the line lol. Wish more romhacks modified the level requirements of some Pokemon-Gen 5 as a whole for the most part, so their evolutions are more easily attainable. In another Emerald hack someone graciously reduced the level requirement for Rufflet into Braviaey from 54 to 34.

Hello everybody! Incase you haven't noticed, I released a small update this morning, Version 1.9w STARLIGHT!
  1. Fixed the issue that caused Wattson's Raichu to use struggle
  2. Buffed Archeops by giving it the ability Run Away
  3. Buffed Tirtouga line to match Archeops
  4. Nerfed Norman's Spinda because I felt it was too powerful and thus unfun to battle against, I still kept the battle challenging but not to a frustrating level ;)
  5. Made a few Pokémon easier to catch such as Deino and Dratini
  6. Buffed Hydregon's moveset so it learns more special moves
  7. Last but definitely not least, a brand new ability for Vanilluxe!
There shouldn't be any more major bugs in this hack, but if there is let me know!

MEGA EVOLTION PARTY TIME! Version 2.2 MilkyWay has just been released and adds mega evolution to the hack! You can buy all the mega stones in the Mauville City Department Store! Need to buy a mega bracelet from the same store to mega evolve, and you mega by pressing select before you pick a move!

Here's some details on which stones are for the brand new mega evolutions!
  • Ego - Dunsparce
  • Gravity Orb - Solrock and Lunatone
  • Disco Ball - Ludicolo
  • Steel Balls - Shiftry
  • Gun Powder - Kingdra
  • Jumpscare.exe - Dusknoir
  • Chaos Emerald(what!!!) - Walrein
  • GTX 1080ti - Pidgeot
I've also done a few small things outside of adding mega evolution
  • Gave Weavile, Flygon, and Breloom better level up moves
  • All the new additions are now catchable!
  • Added Meditite and Mawile back to Dewford Cave
  • Adjusted a few more catch rates

I hope you all have fun with the crazy new mega evolutions!

I'm interested in playing this but I feel like by the time I got part way through a save file there would be 10 updates, I'm playing on 3ds so patching is tricky. Any plans for making updates more substantial or staggering them a little?
I made a decision this morning that I don't plan on updating past 2.4, so you should be able to to play it fine now without having to worry :)
