Pokémon Sharp Diamond and Smooth Pearl




Main plot and game


Main plot will be the same as Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, having a custom post-game.

Features


  • TM learnsets and Level_up learnsets are updated to latest gens. They will de modified to be adapted to the game. Once that’s done, they will be available for the public.
  • Battle mechanics will follow the gen 8 standards, including new moves and abilities.
  • Pokédex will be expanded, focusing on adding some needed Pokemon, like fire type ones. The criteria to add Pokémon won’t be random and will be mostly focused on Pokémon that appear on the anime or in official concept art. Pokédex Platinum will be used as base. Pokedex changes will be added here under a spoiler tag. I want players to find them when playing the game, but I understand that people might want to check them right away, so this post will be updated.
  • Trainers with their mons will be based on the ones from Pokémon BDSP, with changes for the new Pokédex.
  • HMs will disappear. Items/other system will appear instead, so your Pokémon don’t have to waste an attack slot for those.
  • Honey trees will probably be reworked. How is yet to be determined.
  • Some Gym Puzzles will remain the same while some others will get simplified or remade, since they might be hard to do or are inadequate to replicate on the GBA engine.
  • GTS building will be replaced with something else, since those features won’t be available on the GBA/my game. What it will have is yet to be determined.
  • There isn’t a “follow me” system like the NDS has. Instead, NPCs will go into the player and reappear when needed.
  • People won't follow you but Pokémon will! Enjoy your favorite Pokémon following you since the start. (thanks merrp!)
  • You can enable auto-run. Press L in the overworld once you obtained the running shoes!
  • All the improvements that come with pokemon_expansion, item_expansion and battle_engine_v2.
  • Morning/Day/Night system. This includes overworld tint, wild mons support and battle background changing at different times of the day.
  • Added Day of the Week. This will allow me to add events that only occur on certain days, like the Drifloon event.
  • Feature to name the rival is implemented, and you will be able to give it a name when players mom asks about it, just when the game starts (compared to original game, where that occurs in the game’s intro).
  • Some small modifications are made to the game to replicate the feel of Pokémon D/P. That includes: edited how the save screen looks, slightly different timing of the player running animation, items having plural names, text font and color of the font/shadow.
  • Decapitalization of the overall game will be done while I progress in the game, no more BIG TEXTS everywhere.
  • Added the BIG FONT, so the rival can THUDDDD.
  • Map popup is more similar to FR with the D/P look rather than the unique background from Emerald.
  • There is an additional text box for the name of important characters, like BDSP has.
  • Choose your favorite frame type! That will change it's appearance during a lot of places in the UI like Pokémon D/P does.
  • NPCs will have shadows under them (thanks merrp!)
  • Pick up table updated to DPPt one
  • Repeated Field Medicine Use (Using potions/rare candies from bag)
  • DP music (thanks Furret!)
  • Players will have the DP outfits and will be able to obtain Platinum outfits later in the game. While I don't have the art, the players will use the Platinum outfit as default.
  • Added new pockets: Medicine, Battle Item, Treasures

Won't it be more sensical to follow Platinum's storyline instead of DP? Because DP feels incomplete storywise, and Platinum does a great job on tying those loose ends, not to mention the distortion world. Also, in Pt you get both Dialga and Palkia, which would mean that you don't have to put a script regarding who you can get.

Oh boy, yet another Sinnoh demake on GBA. Let's hope this won't get canceled/abandoned.

Will this romhack feature all Pokemon, up to Gen 8, or just Gens 1-4?
Gen IV

Also, in Pt you get both Dialga and Palkia, which would mean that you don't have to put a script regarding who you can get.
The main idea is to copy Pokémon DP gameplay, but with enough feedback I don't mind editing some story elements so it feels as complete as Pokémon Platinum.
About the Dialga/Palkia think I think I will actually do 2 releases (Diamond and Pearl), so I don't have to deal with that. You will be able to trade and battle between those versions (not with other hack roms!). Saves won't be complatible between Diamond/Pearl versions.
Distorsion World... That's something interesting, it would be added as a post-game element, but getting there will take a lot, so future me will deal with that.

Thanks to everybody who is leaving a comment and joining the game's Discord.

Perhaps try do what ORAS did, and have a Platinum "episode" post-league?

A lot has improved since the first screenshots.
Thanks to some help we have better building tiles. I also replaced the emerald object events with ones that are FR style.
In the future I will update them to match the DP ones (with FR style/size), but in the meantime those will do.

Honestly, I hope tha this one would succeed. I saw another suc hack fail, but I like the idea of demaking future generations, especially wit how mature is GBA hacking.
