Pokèmon ROM Hacks Discussion?

Recommended Posts

Erebian Ruler

I'm pretty sure some of us know about these kinds of games, heard of them, or even played them a couple of times, myself included.

For those don't know what Pokèmon ROM hacks are, they're different versions of Pokèmon games, like Pokèmon Blue or Pokèmon Ruby or Pokèmon X, with different graphics, characters, designs, layouts, storylines, or even different Pokèmon from different generations as well as....Fakemon.

Some ROM hacks are complex while others cater to the traditional "8 Gyms, Elite Four, Champion" storyline; others, though interesting, are, sadly incomplete, as a hack, depending on the game and how much you wish to fix, can take quite a while to finish. Much to the fans' lament. 

 

Now that the explanation is out of the way, anyone wanna join me in chatting about ROM hacks?

I used to play around with a Pokemon editor for Red/Blue and Silver/Gold back when I was a lot younger and immature. I was the ass-hole that made Pokemon Red - The Sex Adventure and Pokemon Golden Dildo for a now long lost chat community that was around during 2001-2006. These were basically pretty much text edits of the game and I remember being limited to writing the same amount of characters as what was there originally otherwise it didn't work. There was also basic map editing and stuff and you could move "Warp Tiles" (I think they're called) which is basically a call to transport to another map that's used when walking through doors. 

I have played a few but there's usually one problem or another with fan made hacks (Or as I like to call them, Mods). They're buggier than Assassin's Creed - Unity. xD

It has been a very long time since I delved into this world. Have you ever had a go at editing ROMs?

No, I haven't, actually! Coding isn't my thing(I would probably doom it double time....if you know the reference, I will hug you). If anything, I'd rather play them; the complete ones, that is~.

I'm sorry but the reference went over my head. I'm guessing it's either something do with Doom's Shotgun or one of Jessie and James's "Trigger" words. Like "Trouble" and "Double". I don't think you need to have that much coding experience to actually do it though; not anymore at least.

It's this easy:-

I'm actually referencing an extremely long webcomic called Homestuck. Oh my, that looks a bit daunting to me! But, sadly, my laptop is out, and it isn't a laptop built for that sort of thing.

yeah, I am definitely interested in discussing ROM hacks with you guys and I have played a lot of hacks so far, some of them nearly professional in appearance. Have you heard of Pokémon Quartz and Light Platinum? On another note, if you want adult themed Pokémon games, try Pokémon Uncensored Edition at GameJolt. There is also one with pokemorphs and lot of ecchi/hentai in it, I forget the name though as it has been quite a while since I last saw it on the net.

I'm an ice type fan, so I know how to beat them. Why do you get stuck there? And I love the rom hacks, they are always harder then the original game that I know by heart by now.

From what I've read about Light Platinum, the method to even get the Leader to go to the Gym in the first place is a pain in the ass.
Maybe that's what was meant, or some kind of puzzle/gimmick in the Gym, as opposed to the Pokémon type of the Gym?

I like watching YouTubers like Shofu, TheHeatedMo, and YellowSwellow play rom hacks, and I've seen a few, like Blue Kaizo, PokéSweets, Pokémon Snakewood, and Pokémon: My Ass. Vietnamese Crystal is pretty funny, too, but it doesn't count, because it's just a horribly translated Pokémon Crystal. "Drug bag fuck." XD

creeppasta's by far - Top Percentage (http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Top_Percentage) http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Category:PokéMon - for the rest of them ;)

as for roms......I don't know I haven't played any, I was hoping someone could point me out to one, lost silver was pretty much boring and a snooze fest. the reason I don't count this as a rom is because it isn't, the one i played wasnt anyway. I just like the unexpected turns to something you know should happen - like you play the game normally and it 'gets' you in an unexpected way, ya know?

Not really creepy, strictly speaking. Or that relevant.
But since Whoreo brings it up, I like this one:
 http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mutant_Future

Back on topic, perhaps not strictly a ROM Hack, but I like the Pokémon Randomiser (can't remember the exact name).
Basically it randomises some (or all) Pokémon in the game, so you can end up with Legendaries as starters, or the Elite Four with Caterpies and Rattatas and Magikarp and so on. You know. For lulz. xD

One of the best ROM hacks I've ever played is Pokémon Liquid Crystal, basically another Crystal remake based on the third generation games, but with some added features. For one, there's the day/night cycle based on real world time, and that's way cool for a third gen ROM hack; the Orange Islands, a really 4th-gen like graphical style (battles have different backgrounds depending on where you are for example), you can dive like in Ruby and Sapphire, there's the physical/special split like in 4th gen onwards, the weather system is actually based on the japanese weather pattern (fitting considering IMHO Jotho is the region that best represents Japan, with a mix of modern cities, old towns, ports and small islands), plus small things like a GB Player like the real remakes.

Liquid Crystal, Advance Adventure, and AshGrey are a few I played. As well as Toxic? I think that's what it's called where you play as Team Rocket. Then there was Orange something. Where you played though the Orange Islands.

      I mentioned in a status update that I've been a fan of Pokémon since I was 4. As such, I have been a fan for 20 years of its currently 21-year existance in the US. People say it's just a cartoon for little kids. You know what else is? My Little Pony. And look where that franchise is today. Tom And Jerry, Scooby Doo, and SpongeBob SquarePants are "just" cartoons. That doesn't mean they aren't popular. Pokémon has had a massive impact on my life. It taught me to read. My war veteran grandfather and I played together, and even traded Pokémon! I cried at Bye Bye Butterfree, and I still do. I cried for a half hour straight after Pokémon Ranger And The Temple Of The Sea. When my cousin moved back from Michigan, the first thing we talked about was Pokémon. When my dad caught me smuggling something, it wasn't drugs. It was a copy of Pokémon Silver from his house. So, obviously, I wasn't about to miss the 20th anniversary movie.
      Only 2 theatres in my hometown of Sarasota, Florida, were showing it. Hollywood 20 and AMC. I chose the AMC, as a ticket was cheaper there. 2 of my 3 younger brothers accompanied me. One 17, the other 7. There was not at all any question that we would enjoy it. The 17-year-old ordered a large slushie, and the 7-year-old had a kid's meal. I ordered a cheeseburger slider combo meal. That, unfortunately, was a bad decision. It had to be cooked, and I missed the first 2 minutes. The 17-year-old assured me that all I missed was essentially Nidorino vs. Gengar, a la the Red and Blue intro. What I did see was nothing short of phenomenal, and those 2 minutes are no longer too big of a deal. About 10 minutes in, the opening credits start, accompanied by a heart-pounding rendition of the original Pokémon theme, which I lip-synced as fervently as if I was singing it at a rock concert.
      I had assumed that the movie would be a retelling of the Indigo League arc of the Pokémon anime. It was, but only partially. You all know the story by now. A 10-year-old begins a journey through the Kanto region with a Pikachu. But SO much more happens! Brock and Misty are nowhere to be seen until the end credits. But Ash has 2 friends from Sinnoh who follow him. One of them happens to be the daughter of Cynthia, the Sinnoh League champion. All 3 have aspirations. Ash, of course, wants to be a Pokémon master. The girl wants her mother's acceptance. And the boy wants to become a Pokémon professor. The girl has a Piplup, and the boy has a Lucario.
      So, the 3 go on a journey, as would be expected. But Ash is in possession of a Rainbow Wing. Basically, a feather from Ho-Oh. In the first episode, Ash saw Ho-Oh. The movie is basically about him chasing Ho-Oh, as well as friends and experience. He meets an abandoned Charmander, soon seen to belong to an absolute dick who kicks it when it tries to hug him. This is based on an episode, and becomes a big plot point. Ash wants to show him there are no worthless Pokémon. Along the way, Ash is followed by Marshadow, who eventually becomes the main antagonist. Ash breaks free from Marshadow's corruption, leaving Marshadow to look elsewhere for a host. Unfortunately, in the climax, Marshadow gets ahold of the Rainbow Wing, and gains massive power from it. I won't spoil the climax beyond that. It has to be seen to be believed. I spent the last half of the movie not just crying, but sobbing. Pretty much from their re-creation of Bye Bye Butterfree to the end. My 7-year-old brother repeatedly told me "it's okay."
      Do I recommend this movie? Fuck. Yes. Do you love Pokémon? You'll be on the edge of your seat throughout the thrilling, theatre-shaking battles. Do you hate Pokémon? Then watch it, to see what you're missing. It's not just a cartoon. It's a heart-wrenching masterpiece that it should be criminal to miss.

      *This is a story posted at the request of Neptune. Kai appears courtesy of SMFoxy. This is set to the song "To The Sky," by Owl City. To clear up confusion, the lyrics are for the parts after them.*

        It was nearly a year to the day since Shaymin's trainer's tragic death. With Goodra left in charge of the house, Kai and Shaymin were invited to stay. Kai had chosen the guest bedroom, while Shaymin had insisted on the shed in the garden. For the first month, Shaymin was inconsolable. But, with Kai's help, she had mostly gotten over her depression. What's more, Kai had helped her regain her Sky Forme. This day was bittersweet for Shaymin. She barely spoke as she tottered into the dining room to eat from a bowl of kibble left out for her. As much as her trainer thought she deserved the best, she honestly liked the processed pet food.
       
      [Shipwrecked in a sea of faces.
      There's a dreamy world up there.
      Dear friends in higher places,
      carry me away from here.]
       
        She looked around and saw that the other residents had their gazes fixed on her. She loved them, considering them all to be great friends. But this was the last thing she wanted to see now. She sighed and went back to eating.
       
      [Travel light; let the Sun eclipse you
      'cause your flight is about to leave,
      and there's more to this brave adventure
      than you'd ever believe!]
       
        No later had the last morsel disappeared down Shaymin's throat, than she felt a paw on her quill-covered back. She looked up to see Kai, who said only 2 words to her. "It's time." Shaymin's response was similarly terse. "Do I have to?"
       
      [Bird's-eye view!
      Awake the stars, 'cause they're all around you.
      Wide eyes will always brighten the blue.]
       
        After breakfast, everybody, Shaymin included, stepped outside to the front porch. Again, all eyes were on the petite Legendary. She wanted to curl up into a ball and disappear. Run back to the shed. Anything but what she was about to do. Kai's paw was placed on her again, making her jump. There was no turning back. She had to go.
       
      [Chase your dreams,
      and remember me, sweet bravery,
      'cause, after all,
      those wings will take you up so high.]
       
        "O-Okay," she stuttered. "I'm ready." Kai pulled his paw away, and Shaymin turned to face everyone. 7 in all. And all with smiling faces. Again, not something Shaymin wanted to see in this situation. She gave them a sad nod.
       
      [So bid the forest floor goodbye,
      as you race the wind and
      take to the sky!]
       
        Shaymin began to glow. This transformation was still a bit of a strain to her, and she whimpered as her body shifted and contorted. Once the light faded, she no longer resembled a hedgehog. Now, she could almost be mistaken for an albino reindeer.
       
      [You take to the sky!]
       
        Reluctantly, and with a final, deeply genuine "thank you" to everybody, she leapt up with her hindpaws, her feathered ears catching the breeze and suspending her in the cool morning air. Tears fell down her face, cutting damp paths through her stark white fur.
       
      [On the heels of war and wonder,
      there's a stormy world up there.
      You can't whisper above the thunder,
      but you can fly anywhere.]
       
        The tears didn't stop, and Shaymin didn't dare speak. She looked straight up. Her instincts told her a storm was brewing. She knew she could only remain in Sky Forme for as long as the weather was clear. But, with her speed, she was confident she could at least reach the Ruins Of Alph before she would be forced to land. "You can do it!" Kai called out, as if sensing her trepidation.
       
      [Purple burst of paper birds;
      this picture paints a thousand words!
      So take a breath of myth and mystery,
      and don't look back!]
       
        Kai was right. Shaymin could certainly make the flight to Sinnoh; that wasn't in question. What was, though, was whether Shaymin wanted to fly away. If she dared show her face to the others, they would see she wanted to stay on the ground. The warm, dew covered ground. But, if she hesitated, she'd miss her chance for sure. She shook her head violently, as if trying to dislodge her own hesitation. Finally, she shot high up into the sky.
       
      [Bird's-eye view!
      Awake the stars, 'cause they're all around you.
      Wide eyes will always brighten the blue.]
       
        She could hear her temporary family cheering for her, and, looking down, she could see the whole of the garden that Bellossom kept in such beautiful shape. She took a deep breath, smelling the familiar scent of forthcoming rainfall.
       
      [Chase your dreams,
      and remember me, sweet bravery,
      'cause, after all,
      those wings will take you up so high.]
       
        Shaymin sped forward, the air whipping against her wing-ears. Soon, she was just a speck to the 7 onlookers that continued cheering. Suddenly, though, she turned around, and lowered her altitude. Skillfully, she flew just over the garden, plucking a single pink flower wth her mouth before departing again. "Sorry, Bellossom!~"
       
      [So bid the forest floor goodbye
      as you race the wind and
      take to the sky!]
       
        She was actually slightly glad, at least in that moment, that she was flying alone. If the others could see where she was going, they'd almost surely try and stop her. The buildings of Goldenrod City glinted below her in the morning sun. Admittedly, it was a beautiful sight. She had every intention of going to Sinnoh, but later. There was something far more important she had to take care of first. She landed in the middle of a cemetary.
       
      [There's a realm above the trees
      where the lost are finally found.
      So touch your feathers to the breeze
      and leave the ground.]
       
        The gravestone she was looking for - that of her trainer, of course - wasn't far from where she landed. Shaymin hung her head, and released the flower, which fell in front of the gravestone. "I'm sorry. It's time for me to go."
       
      [Birds-eye view!
      Awake the stars, 'cause they're all around you.
      Wide eyes will always brighten the blue.]
       
        Shaymin's voice was choked with tears. "I-I... I didn't want this. I love you, with all my heart! Why did it have... t-to end like this?!" Almost contemptuously, she kicked at the ground.
       
      [Chase your dreams,
      and remember me, sweet bravery,
      'cause, after all,
      those wings will take you up so high!]
       
        Not trusting herself to keep from bursting into hysterical tears, Shaymin rose into the air again, just as lightning tore through it. She gasped, knowing what would happen next. She dropped like a stone, hitting the ground with a thud, now back in her Land Forme.
       
      [So bid the forest floor goodbye
      as you race the wind,
      and take to the sky!]

        For once, Shaymin wasn't worried by the storm. She got back up to her paws, smiling. She used to be able to fly in storms, but even Kai's training couldn't return that ability to her. She looked up at the suddenly darkened sky. "Thank you."
       
      [You take to the sky!
      You take to the sky!]

        Shaymin didn't have a choice; she had to stay. She nuzzled the gravestone. "Don't worry; I'm not leaving quite yet." In the midst of everything, she let out a giggle. "It's ironic. You hated storms, but a storm is keeping us together!" Sinnoh would still be there when the storm broke. At that moment, Shaymin was right where she needed to be.
