Hey! Welcome to my first (and probably last) hack!

Some time ago there was an "Alternate Evolutions" thread and somebody suggested to make a hack out of it, so the last couple of weeks I worked on it and here I present the outcome!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you post in this thread, any information related to alternate evolutions MUST be posted in spoiler tags, since there are people that want to find them by themselves.

V3 Information:


1. Pokemon

- This hack offers a total of 272 Pokemon from generations I to V.
- A good amount of the Pokemon have different evolutions. Of the about 100 lines in the game, 40 have alternate evolutions.
- Because of the above, a lot of the Pokemon (if not all) have revised BST and Movesets. Also, all fully evolved Pokemon have decent stats, so don't subestimate the power of any Pokemon!
- Movesets were edited to be similar to Gen IV/V ones.
- Some Pokemon have new abilites, most of them from the DW.
- There are also a lot of typing changes. For example, Geodude is now pure Rock type.
- Starters are Chikorita, Charmander and Squirtle.
- Gift Pokemon have been changed. You no longer get Lapras in Silph Co or buy Magikarp in Route 4. Also, the Fighting Dojo prize is different (better). Eevee is still a gift mon.
- Pokemon you can buy from the Game Corner are different. In order, they are Abra, Jigglypuff, Tyrogue, Shuckle, Dratini (even if the game says otherwise).

2. Map and Plot

- Plot was left completely untouched.
- There is grass in some cities, explore!
- All places you can visit before visiting the Elite 4 are edited.
- Only the first 3 Sevii Islands are accesible.
- There is a new sidequet inserted into the game. It begins at Pewter City and ends after the Elite 4! I promise the reward for doing the quest is very very good.

3. Trainers

- All trainers have edited teams. I tried to make the game challenging but not impossible.
- Almost every route/cave has at least one "boss" trainer that is smarter than the rest, has better movesets and can use items. These "bosses" are usually the last of the route, but not always. So be prepared!
- There a few extra, "hidden", trainers, that give stuff. Battle them!
- There are two trainers in the posgame.

4. Gym Leaders

- All Gym Leaders have edited teams.
- All Gym Leaders have 6 Pokemon in their team.
- Gym Leaders have more items (read: Potions) than in the original games. Also, they use hold items.
- To avoid overleveling (or underleveling) I'll list here the levels and typing of the Gym Leaders:

5. Gary

- Gary will act like a normal trainer. That is, he will catch a lot of Pokemon, so you'll notice his team changes between battles. In fact, you may be surprised in the fight before Victory Road.
- Gary can be tough, so I also leave the levels of the rival battles here:
Spoiler: click to toggle

6. Giovanni

- He sucks in the real games, so his teams also change here. He uses 6 Pokemon in all battles. Levels are:

7. Known Bugs

None yet.

8. Some tips

- Don't overlook any Pokemon, since it may evolve into something cool.
- Use evolution stones! Also, all Pokemon that evolve from stones still keep learning moves so don't be afraid (though I recommend waiting for level 30 in most cases, since they usually don't learn anything before).
- Use the fishing rod(s). There are not many water Pokemon in the grass, and you get the old rod early. I changed the fishing encounters to allow you to get decent water types with every rod (Magikarp is still very common though).
- Talk to NPC's!
- And talk to the guy that gives advice in the gyms.
- Grass below Pallet Town is a grinding place.
- Explore places to find the secret trainers.
- The trainers' levels are hacked supposing you play the game in the next order (since Cerulean):
Spoiler: click to toggle

- Apparently, I made the hack quite hard. Honestly, I wanted to. So, if you don't like hard hacks, stay away from this, or don't bitch at me. I may have given some gym leaders nasty moves, but just face it, they are gym leaders, they are supposed to be strong without being entirely bullshit.

9. DOWNLOAD LINK: http://www.mediafire.com/?g7goq5ompohaz9p

This file is a patch, not a ROM. To play you need to download a Fire Red ROM (use Google, don't be lazy) and then use LunarIPS to apply the patch to the ROM. If you aren't sure how to do this, ask in the official questions thread. Don't ask here and don't PM me.



Old V2

And that's it. Hope you people play it, Nuzlocke it (if you dare!) and comment here, suggesting changes or reporting bugs. Also, don't spoil the evolutions, or use spoilers!

Have fun!

P.D. Aviana is doing some sort of Alt Evo Dex, which can be found in this post: http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/single/?p=8419195&t=8546459 . If you want to be surprised by the evolutions, DON'T CHECK IT. And if you want to contribute, PM her with SCREENSHOTS. For V2 evolutions, check this one: http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/single/?p=8455985&t=8546459 .
