How to patch your ROM:



The UPS program Tsukuyomi is unable to patch the ISO. Use NUPS if on windows. Use Multipatch on Mac.

Apply the patch file to a clean Pokemon XD: Gale of darkness ROM using any UPS patcher. Newer versions of the NUPS patcher give an error saying the system ran out of memory. Find an older version of NUPS or use an online UPS patcher. This patch was made for the NTSC (US) version so it will not work on other versions. The ISO is quite large so it may take a few minutes.

Always patch onto a clean ISO, even if you are applying an update.

The file size for the ISO should be 1.46 GB (1.35 GiB). If it's a ciso it can't be converted back to the regular iso. If it's an nkit (1.1. GB) ISO then you'll need to convert to a regular ISO using this tool. Drag and drop the ISO onto the program called "ConvertToISO". Once it has finished the full ROM with the correct file size will be in the folder called "Processed". Apply the patch to that ROM.

If the file size is below 1GB it's probably in a .zip, .7z, .rar or other archive and needs to be unzipped.  


Known Bugs:

  • Multi-turn moves charge forever. Solar beam only works in sun
  • The move relearner says it costs 1000 coupons per move, it actually costs 5
  • Sometimes when trying to teach a pokemon a tutor move it says its already learned. You can ignore this and it works fine.
  • Solar power doesn't hurt the user
  • You can't use Battle CDs (yet)
  • Pokemon don't become grounded after using roost

Pokemon XD is a fantastic Pokemon game, and this Rom Hack takes it to another level. This, to me, is THE definitive way to play Pokemon XD, and any Generation 3 Pokémon game for that matter, a whole lot of effort was put into this, and it shows. Its nothing short of greatness!

This is Awesome! A Rom hack of my favorite game is just amazing! It's nice seeing how many Pokemon you can get compared to the original game, now you can get Legendarys besides the birds and more shadow moves! this is awesome bro.

also my 100Lv Lugia from vanilla Named Master says hello!

(uhh I don't have any images of him sorry)


(I like Black Pearl because she's like Shadow Lugia, plus she's beautiful)
