This is really awesome, and even though I'm in Viridian I can tell already that there's been a lot of polish put into this project.

One other thing that I really give you kudos for is making something that really bugs me about BW in general, the 50 power Tackle, generally managable in the earlygame. Purrloin is never at a disadvantage for knowing Scratch due to the Aerial Ace TM.

I'm not sure if this was reported, but there seems to be a bug with the new cries and Growl. Every now and then the Growl "voice" glitches up, and you hear some odd, high pitched sounds before the cry.

EDIT: Also I ran into a text overflow, right here.

Found a small text bug. When opponent uses Sticky Web, the text says "Foe (pokemon) is affected..." but the slow animation still shows properly on your team.

So, are there any working IV and EV Gameshark or AR codes? I'm one of those people who likes to play through the game with ideal Pokémon.

the game freeze if you have reckless ability + recoil move and you use on enemy with ability aftermath

Hi i reaaly love ur game- what a fantastic hack.
And i found a bug(maybe) I battled kyurem with bisharp(my bisharp ability is defiant) in unknown dungeon.Kyurem has icy wind and scary face right?It reduced my bisharp speed and activated defiant abi.until the third time defiant actived the game crashed.i tried like 10+ time and the gam still crashed so ->-> when active defiant abi 3 time the game crash?!! (Sorry for my bad english i am vietnamese

Thank you all for the reports! I'll look into these issues to hopefully have them fixed in the next update! :)

Hey, I love your game. I especially love that the VS Seeker is instant. I was asking around on how to do that in one of my FR hacks, but the one alternative was pretty lengthy and a bit complicated. Would you mind showing me what you did?

PM me if you are still interested. :)

So, are there any working IV and EV Gameshark or AR codes? I'm one of those people who likes to play through the game with ideal Pokémon.

There are two different items that tell you the IVs and EVs of your Pokemon. The two items are the IV checker (0x71) and the EV checker (0x72). You might be able to hack in these items into your inventory if nothing else works. In addition, the status screen shows a star next to a Pokemon's stat if the IV for the particular stat is very good.

Hey, dont know why, but after patching the firered rom, the image crashes in NO$GBA and fails to load in Desmume. Do you know why?

Odd, no clue why I wouldn't work on other emulators. The emulator I use is VBA; if it does not work on VBA, the issue might be with the patching.

A few more minor issues:

Freeze Dry is a bit buggy on dual type water pokemon (should be super effective against water types but it doesnt register properly ex Skrelp and Volcanion; damage done and text says "not very effective"). Also, the description is that of a draining attack (Absorb, Mega Drain, Giga Drain).

Gogoat should be able to learn Surf but is unable to.

Unburden ability activates but does not show the increase speed animation on the pokemon. Minor issue.

Trying to heal your pokemon with nurse Joy in Rush tower causes the game to crash. Text slowly lags, then the screen flickers blue-black, then the game and emulator hangs. Not really game breaking since you can heal elsewhere.

Recoil moves seem to do a bit more damage to the user than usual? Should be 10% for Flare Blitz and Wild Charge but seems to do 30%, whereas Head Smash should do 50% to the user but only does 30%. Might be a consistency thing, and if is the case just disregard this.

Would appreciate a list of moves the move tutor in Rush Tower teaches since she does notnshow you if you dot have enough BP (how much is enough?).

MAJOR ISSUE: Quite difficult to explain so I'll explain the scenario instead:

Fighting Dojo Master fight

DM: *sends out Sawk*
Me: *sends out Serperior* *uses Aerial Ace*, Sawk down to 50% HP
Sawk uses Brick Break, Serperior down to 30% (not full health to begin with)
Serperior uses Aerial Ace, 10% HP remain.
Sawk uses Brick Break, KO Serperior.
Me: *sends out Mincinno*
Sawk, uses Brick Break, KO Mincinno (surprised he was faster lol)
Me: *sends out Pyroar* *uses Lava Plume* Sawk KO
DM: *sends out Throh*
Pyroar uses Charming Cry, Throh down to 65% HP.
Throah uses Bulk Up.
Pyroar uses Lava Plume, Throh down to 15% HP.

Here's the bug part:

Throh uses Circle Throw, KO's Pyroar, immediately sends out Drilbur lvl 10 without me choosing (Drilbur for HM). Game then asks me to select a pokemon to switch to EVEN IF DRILBUR WAS ALREADY SWITCHED IN AUTOMATICALLY. Since my entire team was wiped out and I had a Revive, I chose Drilbur, who was already out (I tried cancelling but the game wouldnt let me) to but time for a Revive. Drilbur is sent out again, but his sprite now bugged and so is his name. Game crashes.

Will edit this post to avoid multiple posting.

These are all so far. Sorry for the lack of screenshots.

Hello, any update on all the locations for where you can find each Pokemon?
As the otaku plaza thread seem to be outdated? Been looking everywhere for certain Pokemon that do not show up at the locations they're listed on there
Thanks

This is my favorite ROM hack. No unrealistically high number of Pokemon and a great number of features that really makes for a fresh take on FireRed. Well done!

I appreciate the report! I'll definitely have to look into these issues! I'm surprised some of these issues passed :O

Should still be mostly accurate, but I might have to look at it again. Which Pokemon are you looking for?

Is the Genesect in Cerulean Cave meant to be shiny or did I just get extremely lucky? Also how can I get Espeon and Umbreon since there's no day and night cycle?

Well, after god knows how long, I'm back after playing your hack, and I must ask, where can I get a thunderstone here? It's not being sold at the department store as much as I know, does it become purchasable later like the trade stone? Thanks in advance!

Edit: Okay I completed the 6th gym, now I have the Thunderstone. Everything is fine now.

Any chances for a future update that could expand the game and maybe add the Johto region and some Pokemon from Alola?

I'm not so sure. I think the game is long enough as far as content goes, though I have been entertaining the thought of adding more postgame, like maybe one or two more islands with a difficult postgame dungeon in one of them. I've also had ideas for another weirder battle facility. These islands would have some of the more interesting Pokemon from the other generations, including Alola, since I have kind of exhausted the 5th and 6th generation Pokemon as far as strategies go.

Really wanted to ask as to which difficulty setting is good for Nuzlocking, the easy or the moderate level? Thank you!

I would go with "Normal" for trainer sets since I based the trainer sets in that mode off of the official games moreso than anything else. "Challenge" and "Omega", I reckon, would have too many unpleasant surprises for a nuzlocker. So yeah, the easy difficulty.
