Pokemon Fire Red: The Hard Version! Release

Beta 6
Introduction
pokeball_icon.gif


Hey guys! I'd like to introduce another (or improved) version of Pokémon Fire Red. This is kind of a mix between a 386 and a difficulty game.
The minor features and changes implamented do not really change the characteriscits of the orignal game but do however enhance the difficulty and the enjoyment of the game!

I have only been working on this for several days so the only assortments I have worked on so far are the battles this includes trainers, rivals, gyms, Elite Four ect.
I promise you this game to be very challenging but fun!

If this game gets positive feedback and becomes admired by users then I will go forth to adding new variables such as scripts, events and so on. For now however let's just call this "The Pilot" I have spent quite alot of my time dedicated to this hack and plan to carry on so please be respectable with feedback, thank-you.




Features
pokeball_icon.gif

  • A whole new Rival!
  • Gym Leaders have new & stronger teams!
  • Every Gym Leader now has 6 Pokémon (aside Brock & Misty)
  • Sound replacements (Example; Oaks Lab)
  • Rivals team had alertations
  • All trainers edited some the same but higher levels
  • All rematches with any trainer has also been edited to suit their location in-game
  • Elite Four members have much stronger teams and even stronger teams second time round (L90+)
  • Gym Leader Rematches! ~ After completeing the Elite Four you will notice the Gym Leaders dotted around Islands Four, Five Six & Seven.. can you find them all!?
  • All 386 Pokémon obtainable
  • New trainers implamented to spice things up
  • Whole game difficulty intensified

Hey I thought game is pretty good. Got a couple things though.
1.Change the girl that you battle before you enter in the forest; oddish to at least a higher then the pokemon in the nearest grass.
2.Change Pichu to evolve to pikachu at any level between 10-30.
3.Change what the proffesor that upgrades your pokedex make him update it and leave somewhere. -not give you dream eater-
4.I like the fact that you can catch grass starters in the forest but it defeats the purpose of getting a Bulbasaur. lol.
5.I liked the game and I think you should continue it.

Thanks for the feedback & I'll take it on board.

About the Oddish I changed that right after I made the release (now Level 8) which I think is suitable and about the professor, I was debating whether I should just leave him because well I'm not too strong on scripting but I don't really see a problem with teaching Dream Eater but if people wish for me to change I will.
Regarding the Pichu & Pikachu evolution, with the next release I'm going to change it so that ALL Pokémon that are evolved via trade will be evolved by a certain level and I will change SOME happiness evolutions and leave some in because I know people like using happiness to evolve Pokémon.
Finally, the starters, yeah I only wanted to put them in an early stage as a test because the beta does end at Pewter so I'm kinda limited to areas where to place them but I will relocate them to a later point in the game, like I said this was only a pilot so I was expecting some flaws with the game, I just wanted to see how it went down but again, thanks, I do intend to continue it.

My VBA won't play the game, it keeps coming up with the message "Unsupported file type" I tried patching it to a clean Fire Red ROM but the VBA will just play the Fire Red game and not the hack. Am I doing anything wrong?

The levels of Gym Leaders increase majorly but I have been thinking of increasing Brocks levels.

Sorry, it was months ago that I downloaded it and I'm unable to locate it.

Yea it wasn't too hard seeing there's a spam method with using all your money then battling the gym leader while losing but gaining exp. Got my Treeko, Charmander, and Pichu all the way to 26 doing that.

Ah right, well thanks for the feedback, I will increase Brocks levels for the next release, and possibly the other Gym Leaders but I dont think they need it because Misty reaches Level 30 and Level 30 for the second Gym is quite intense but yeah.

Most probally tomorrow, or the day after, I've already changed everything to Cerulean, including trainers, gyms & Wild Pokemon.

That's actually a good idea, the thought of beta testers some reason didn't occur to me, I'm testing it now but if you wanna try it out I can send you a link now?
