    Completed Pokemon WaterRed Version!

    Discussion in 'Other Games & Projects' started by theevilslime, Sep 28, 2017.

    Once upon a time I thought to myself... People like playing through Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen. People also like playing around with either Fakemon or Delta/Alolan/Alternate forms of familiar Pokemon.

    Thus, Pokemon WaterRed came to be. A version of FireRed (the story is, due to my relative inexperience with Romhacking for the most part unchanged.) where just about every Pokemon one runs into has been changed to a different form, and if that is not the case it likely will evolve into such a Pokemon.

    Game type: ROMHack (Pokemon FireRed (U) (V1.1) )
    Features:
    • Around 200 Pokemon in new alternate forms. These range from simple palette swaps for some, to huge changes on others. This number will keep on growing as ideas spout into my mind.
    • New moves, such as Firebreath, Freeze Ray, Magmarock, Iron Slam and more.
    • Certain moves, which in the original FR/LG are awful, have been buffed or changed. Examples include damage-dealing Electric-type Flash, Giga Drain at it's later-generation stats, Steel-type Cut and more.
    • New Evolution stones in place of previously useless items. (Seeing as one cannot trade Pokemon in this game, and Porygon's type has been changed, there is no need for an Up-Grade to be in the game as an example.) All evo stones, old and new are available in the Celadon department store.
    • While fully playable due to essentially being FireRed version, not all trainer's teams and wild encounters are finalized.
    Download:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rIweWO3yWRStHMM0aL6lUacM1oeRQVMU
    Note that the version here gets updated after any major work is done on the game.



    -moved up to demo. Enjoy.
    Once you obtain a Pokemon with Waterfall (and preferably also defeat the Champion, though that isn't necessary), meet me on Route 3 for a battle! (The HM for Waterfall is in Icefall Cave on Four Island for those that don't remember, and certain Water-Types will learn Waterfall naturally when they are of appropriate level for this duel.)

    "It's a popular pet because it poops ice cubes."

    Wow, I'll bet it's a hit at parties. And for practical jokes.

    In all seriousness, this looks really cool. No Fridgey pun intended.

    Hey, enjoyed playing this so far. So far I've only tested it on Toxic Stone and Cloud Stone, but the non-canon evolution stones don't work? Cloud Stone for example in a party of Vulpix and Charizard will show the HP bar on Vulpix and say no effect on Charizard, yet interacting with Vulpix still says "It will have no effect."

    I am very much sorry for a lack of earlier response (life has been busy...), but the evolution stone issue has been resolved.

    I will be posting the updated version of the game that fixes this (among other things - one of them that I discovered is the Abra line giving incorrect EVs) in a few days, as there are some other minor things I want to work out before uploading - this should be done by the end of the week.

    Glad you like the look of it!

    Just now, I've finished going through the miscellaneous edits I spoke of, and the new version is now up!




    I hope everyone who wishes to try the game out enjoys it, and if anyone spots things that need fixing, point it out (except if it's text saying the original name of a Pokemon - those I'm aware of, and will fix when I feel like it, which is something that university doesn't line up with well).

    Until the next time I when I will have more to add,

    Well, it's time.
    I've decided it's time for this to get to the level of 'Completed'.

    A few days ago I did a little edit with a few extra Pokemon and NPC changes, and this one also does this - while also adding some wild encounters to areas.

    Enjoy the game!

    I believe that would be more of a question for a general area here, but I'll give it a shot - you need a FireRed ROM, the patch, and a Patcher program (in the case of this ROM a UPS Patcher - Googling for it would probably be the easiest way to get one) for your operating system of choice.

    After that, you go into the patcher program, choose which Rom and which patch file to use, and hit the 'apply patch' button that should be somewhere within the program.

    (if you still have problems after that, you can message me directly, and I'll go and see if I can help.)

    _______________________
    Also, this gives me a decent opportunity to mention, that some additional Pokemon have been made, so I'll probably be updating the patch within the week. Maybe some other stuff as well.

    That was perfectly instructed. Thanks so much. I thought I just had to load the rom and apply the patch, didn't know there was a middle step. Cheers!

    Well, took me a bit longer than "by the end of the week" and more of "a week", but additional Pokemon have been added to the wilderness and to NPC's teams.
    There are also other minor things that might be harder to notice (I messed around with certain Pokemon's shiny colourations, changing them from what they used to be, but I doubt most people will have caught a shiny of something, only to find one again and have it look different...).

    I hope you enjoy, and if you have any suggestions for Pokemon that don't appear in the game yet, but have an idea for a name-pun that would imply their new type (along with a suggestion for the type), feel free to tell me about them, they might just make it in.


    (the bad thing here is, after putting up the update and everything, I almost immediately thought of another Pokemon I could do. It's being saved until next time though.)

    Hey there, I loved the look of this RomHack so much I made an account just to say I love the dedication! :)
    Are you sure it's a hack of Fire Red (U) (1.1) though? I keep getting invalid checksum, and I wanted to make sure others have an answer if they have the same issue.

    Oh gosh. Thanks for reminding me that this is a problem that sometimes happens. The thing is, I have a file i sometimes mistake for an unedited copy of FireRed on my computer, and I believe that the latest patch was accidentally based on that.

    I replaced it now, so go give it a shot. (if it still doesn't work, PM me, just so we don't clog this up with the replies.)

    I just tested it, and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong (We were able to resolve Lithead35's problems with the patching of the game, and I haven't changed anything about the patch file since then). Please make you're using the correct ROM. If the problem persists, PM me.

    I've been playing this on an emulator for a bit now and it has been really great, however, some grammatical errors have been bothering me. Other than that this is delightful and I can't wait to see more ROM hacks like this on Relic.

    I am glad to hear that you like it so far. I have been working on some new Pokemon to add, and, upon seeing your comment, looked into the grammatical errors, hopefully I have found and fixed most of them.

    The new additions should be up within the week, and they include some fancy type combinations (Ice/Fire, Electric/Fighting, Dragon/Water, and WaterRed's first... Normal/Flying type!)

    Well, I did say I was going to update this within the week, so here is the latest update - this time I also decided to mess with the type chart a little, buffing Ice and Rock defensively a bit, as well as making it so that Steel no longer resists Ghost and Dark (honestly, that interaction really bothered me... why would it make it harder for ghosts to hit you just because you're made of metal?), as generation 6 did it.

    In addition to that, there's the usual new Pokemon, minor changes to NPC teams (although, 2 members of the Elite Four got some new toys to play with. Let's just say Shedinja's new type makes it a little bit harder to take out than before.)

    And uhhh... that about sums it up, enjoy!
