Before we start off!


Hey everyone, I am here once again with a new gba romhack project!
This time around I am making a sequel to my first romhack (and Part 1 of my series), Pokémon Saiph!
This is Part 3 of my romhack series, The VytroVerse! (Hack made from: "1636 - Pokemon Fire Red (U)(Squirrels)")
Parts:
Spoiler:
Part 1: Pokémon Saiph
Part 2: Pokémon Sors
Part 3: Pokémon Saiph 2
Further parts will be added in the future!


Story (Spoilers)


Spoiler:

Welcome to the region of Regris! Old Almia was once a peaceful nation, learning to live together with Pokémon. The almians lived in peace, until one day an ancient beast, Darkrai, appeared and kept the region's population under terror. They were forced to move underground, where Darkrai's powers couldn't reach them.
Mysteriously one day, a knight found a way to put an end to Darkrai's terror, sealing it on a new land he claimed and named New Almia. As a result, Old Almia changed its name to Regris and brought the land a new era... however it also created a new nation it started to rival.

Centuries later, due to unknown reasons the Regris Government layed eyes on Darkrai's ancient powers once again, to keep themselves safe from Almia, or perhaps to break the world order of The United Regions...
It has been 3 years since the events of Pokémon Saiph, and only a couple weeks since the chaos was quelled in Hupest with the help of Micah Kusei.
Micah and Darlo on his way back from a diplomatic event in a faraway region, got into a plane crash, that ended up taking them to Regris, where now they have to
face an organization, called the Regressists, who are trying to reclaim Darkrai's lost powers... Are they doing this for Regris? Or perhaps there is something else going on behind the scenes? Find out in Pokémon Saiph 2!


Features (v1.1)

Bugs (v1.1)


Spoiler:
  • Opening the EV IV Screen of a Pokémon which is inside a PC Box crashes the game (Sometimes it doesn't, but it shows the wrong data/Pokémon)
  • Opening the Town Map at certain areas places the location mark at the wrong spot (mostly side areas)
  • TM Case visual issues (not game breaking)
  • Samurott Can’t be Regressed
  • 'Use Vent' and 'Use Dive' bubbles get messy if the start menu is opened (corrects itself if closed)
  • Ingame Trades have custom moves, but they are only applied to the right Pokémon if the traded Pokémon was in the first slot in your party!
  • If you have trouble with soaring after it unlocks, go to Regris Sea and surf on diving water (darker shade of water)
    (I will work on a fix as quick as possible)


Emulator Compatibility (General Information)


Spoiler:
  • Eclipse, VBA-M, No$GBA and the 3DS GBA VC are not compatible with this romhack!
  • VBA, mGBA, MyBoy, JohnGBA and PizzaBoy 100% work (hardware like everdrive weren't tested)
  • When it comes to cheats, you are on your own, as they can mess up the game, thus I won't provide cheats, and there won't be cheats listed anywhere.
  • Game made from "1636 - Pokemon Fire Red (U)(Squirrels)"
  • Support for any commercial ROM's will not be given in this thread.

Wohooo! Can't wait to hear you go wild on the music in this one!
Finally dropped my mixtape Venting session vol. 2! This mixtape is deeply personal to me as the 4 tracks touch up on themes such as Mental health, parental upbringing etc. Do consider tuning in!

Out of curiosity, are there going to be any distinguishing elements/aspects in this game to help make some of the Pokemon stand out? Some examples of what that could be include fan-made Pokemon, or fanmade Evoltions or Mega Evolutions, or even overhauled movepools that include Egg Moves in the Level-up and/or Base Stat rebalances.

I see that this will be an "all the Pokemon in one Region" fangame, but I have found that those tend to be weaker in many ways (including due to things like Region overcrowding) to fangames with more curated Pokedexs that can then spend time adding nuance to the roster that's included.
The World of the Pokémon Animé is much too vast and has too much depth to focus on just a single aspect of it, like just battles or just adventure. :)

New species expanding already existing ones isn’t planned.
As to the full Dex, I might not make the region force in all 890+ species in a single National Dex, as I might have a regional dex with less and make the rest available outside of the dex like in S&M (if I do this I will hand out a Nat Dex in the postgame but yeah you get the idea)

Do you have plans to add an Ev-Iv Display Screen?
Winning an arguement with an intellegent person might be hard,but winning one with a dumb person is impossible.

Something I would suggest, you could incorporate difficulty levels instead of just one single set one to offer player choice.
We will see

A Full Pokedex with Generation 1 through 8 you say?! Oh boy! Will it include the Pokémon from both the Isle of Armor, and the Crown Tundra from Sword & Shield too? Do you also mean by all the Generation 8 Pokémon
Including the starters too? i would be happy to play your game if it has it all!

Not overcrowding a single region would definitely be a good thing to do.

I hope this game has a longer post game, considering Sors is really short.
Sors’ was already pretty packed if one decides to 100% the game but we will see
