Introduction

3rd gen hacks are too standard so let's make a 2nd gen one yeah!

Alright, so basically this is a simple hack of Crystal in the vein of Fire Red Omega and Emerald 386 and stuff like that. I figured you guys could use a 2nd gen hack since they're not exactly common, y'know? :P

(Also because Crystal is the best Pokemon game js)

Overview of Changes

-All 251 Pokemon are obtainable.
-The game is more difficult. Levels and rosters of all Trainers have been changed.
-Some Pokemon have received retypings and buffed level-up movepools.
-Some Move effects have changed.
-Some new TMs.
-Some Marts sell different things now.
-New Starters. (Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle)

Stat Changes (Alphabetical Order)


Move Changes


Level Up Movepool Changes (Dex Order)


Evo Method Changes


Retypings


TM Changes


That should cover it all I think.

Download

Get the IPS Patch (also known as the legal way) for Version 1.7 here.

Changes in 1.7 from the original.

Changes in Version 1.6 from the original.

Changes in Version 1.5 from the original.

Changes in Version 1.4 from the original.

Changes in Version 1.3 from the original.

Changes in Version 1.2 from the original.

Rosters of all Major Battles

Rosters of Major Battles for Version 1.6

Things left to do:

-Nothing!

Special Thanks To

-Wiznatts for teaching me how pointers work and for beta testing.
-Icy, Tenrai, Moti, and the rest of the PO Community for testing and giving me feedback.

Gimme your best shot.
My one request with this, if you could, in a future update: Raise the level of Kanto in general. Aside from the gyms, your rival, and Mt. Silver, levels stop increasing dead in their tracks once you hit route 27 or so. The highest level pokemon I saw in Kanto that didn't fit one of the above descriptions was level 34, almost 20 levels below my team at that point, and that was a trainer with only one Pokemon, and trainers like that generally have that one Pokemon at a fairly high level to compensate. Most trainers I saw were around 25-30.

Give people a REASON to go to Kanto, levels-wise.

I'll definitely be giving this a shot, though.

All of the Trainers in Kanto have been buffed. I just haven't gotten to the Wild pokes yet. :P

This sounds awesome. One question though: Are you going to tell us what Gym changes have happened? Or is it a secret so we perish at the level 20 Lugia on Falkner's team?

I'll post the levels tomorrow. :v:

Don't worry about Falkner having a Lugia though.

Sweet. But for now... I'm going in Blind. Unless I fail misreably at the first gym and rage quit...

Yay for no Lugia early on!

...This hack is VERY unfriendly.

Details of just how and why this hack is unfriendly. Various trainer spoilers ahoy.


This hack really isn't suited for Nuzlocking, not with the sort of shit it throws at you this early on. It's too cruel right off the bat.

EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, what the fuck is with the Azumarill buff? That seems pretty random and arbitrary and makes me suspect a STRONG bias to just randomly TRIPLE its physical attack stat.

Yeah, after the Huge Power multiplier Azu's Attack is roughly equal to base 150.

I'll probably make the early game ease up on the gas in the next update, this is my first hack so that prolly explains the weirdness lol. :X

I think only the first two gyms should be slightly easier as well as the routes. And if you want proof on how hard it is, I have a Charizard and im only just challenging the second gym. its still fun to play, ill give you that. but any trainer with bulbasaur is utterly screwed for life.

Keep this version as the 'Hard Version' and make a easier version.
More fun for everyone imo.

Hard =/= High levels.

Unfortunately, my hack is both right at the beginning, so I can't say that much. Just... lower the levels, please

The problem with making up for Huge Power is that it's the ONLY Ability you're really able to duplicate, and it seems rather unfair.

Aside from that, honestly, raw levels are all well and good (though personally I'm not a huge fan of hacks that end up simply being a massive grind-fest... moreso than usual, I mean), but casually tossing evolved Pokemon at the player this early on can be really, really painful, especially when they're given really powerful moves.

trainer spoilers again, I guess

Alright, I'll make sure to fix these things in the next version. The Azumarill and Gyarados will be replaced with weaker Pokemon, and I'll probably de-evolve the Graveler into a Geodude. I will also try to insert a Lucky Egg (possibly) early on to make up for the steep level curve to make grinding less of a chore.

Thank you for playtesting and being honest. :v:

One small note, there's a single trainer in Ilex forest that you missed, he's got a Ledyba and a Paras, around 8-9 or so.
