Ultra Something is a ROM hack of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. I originally made it for my own enjoyment, but since it took me a fairly long time to complete, I thought it might be worth putting it somewhere public in case anyone else finds it interesting/useful. If not, no big deal; I can still play it myself.
It's not a radical overhaul of the game by any means - just a fairly standard difficulty hack (intended to be playable with the Exp. Share off) where you can catch all 807 Pokémon, with some extra changes on top. Basically every edit I made was done via pk3DS.
I'm not very good with names, hence why it's called Ultra Something.
Note that this hack is not designed to be compatible with Pokémon Bank, other official Pokémon games, or anything similar. I wouldn't recommend trying to connect it with any official Pokémon titles.
There are quite a lot of things I've changed in this hack, so I've put some of the more interesting features below. I've also added some screenshots to help demonstrate what's changed.
A changelog and a documentation folder are also included in the Google Drive files, which contains 16 text files' worth of documentation and explanation of the hack's features. Probably a bit excessive, really, but it's there if you need it.
Wild Pokémon changes
Battle facility changes
Shop item changes
Downloads and installation
You can find the game files here.
You need to have the version 1.2 title update for your game version installed for this hack to work. Otherwise, Poké Marts will freeze your game.
Make sure you use the correct files for your game version. It doesn't make much difference which version you choose to play, but you will be unable to catch 2 species of Ultra Beast if you use the wrong files.
If you're using Luma3DS on a hacked console:
- Enable game patching in the Luma3DS settings menu (you can access this by holding Select while booting up the console).
- Navigate to the /luma/titles/(TitleID)/ folder on your SD card. (Create that folder if it doesn't exist.)
- (TitleID) should be named 00040000001B5000 if you're playing Ultra Sun.
- If you're playing Ultra Moon, (TitleID) should be named 00040000001B5100.
- In the Google Drive folder for your chosen game version, copy the romfs folder and place it in the (TitleID) folder on your SD card. Once that's done, the hack should be successfully installed.
- If you've started a new game, you can verify that the hack was installed correctly on the language selection menu; the bottom screen should say "Welcome to Ultra Something!" in green text.
If you're playing on Citra or something else, I don't know how to use them, so I can't give any sort of tutorial. That said, I can't see any reason why they wouldn't work if you already know how to install/play ROM hacks on them.
Glitches and issues
Things I might add in the future:
Although Ultra Something is in a completed state, there are a few things I'm considering adding to it in the future:
Anyone involved in the creation of these programs/games/etc.:
- Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
- Probably something else I forgot
One last thing
I'm not very good with people, so please don't take it personally if I don't respond to your posts or questions. I'm still not entirely sure how I managed to get it working on my 2DS in the first place, so I'm not going to be very good at tech support-type things. Sorry.
