  1. Well, the number of times you met Scott is stored in constant 0x40D1 (209 in PKHeX). You will get the following BP: const == 13 → 4 BP (can you legitimately get this?) const >= 9 → 3 BP const >= 6 → 2 BP else 1 BP For reference check this: https://github.com/pret/pokeemerald/blob/master/data/maps/BattleFrontier_ScottsHouse/scripts.inc#L169 However the conversations with Scott can still be triggered, there are a bunch of additional flags that get checked after talking to him.

  2. I'll showcase here my first PMD Hack: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Alpha! This hack is named after the Alpha Pokemon Arceus, and you got it: the crux of this hack is the implementation of Arceus in the game as the final battle. Already present in the game, but unused and lacking both sprites and portraits, I first wanted to add Arceus to the game. But that's not the main goal of this hack. I've spent a lot of time in my childhood playing Explorers of Sky, grinding mons up to stats cap by hand, figuring out the game mechanics etc... But I felt like the game could be optimized and made harder, with more QoL features and Pokemon reworks like you could see in Drayano hacks. 8/15/2021: 1.3 is going well, though I'm currently working on some features for Alpha and it takes a lot of time to pull all of this out. What I'm trying to get working: Level-Scaling, an Egg-Move Tutor for Electivire and a casual mode for the game (that you can choose at the start, though I think it won't happen). But for now here's 1.3 Patch Notes update ! I hope you are excited for 1.3 Update ! 6/18/2021: It's been around 3 months I've been forced to take a pause of Alpha's development for several reasons, from lack of motivation to exhaustion about IRL problems, I had to take a pause. Now that I found a better pace in my life, I can slowly but gently get back into business with Alpha, and following that, here are the news! What's planned in 1.3 down below: Most of these features are finished, if you want to know what is still on the to do list to have an idea: 3/4/2021: Before explaining the situation, huge shotouts to Irdkwia, End45 and techticks for their awesome work and for being that knowledgeable. Without them, the project I'm working on for 1.3 wouldn't have made this far! I'm currently working on adding new moves to the game. I also updated some moves to reflect main series changes, and plan on modifying the way some moves work (like Roost, Morning Sun, Flare Blitz, etc...) Thus no 1.2.1 version will be released, instead there will be a 1.3 with bugfixes, new TMs compatibility, new Exclusive Items, a way to obtain Corrupted Shield, Corrupted Sword, and Harbinger's Robe, new items like HP Max or Atk Max, eventually even more TMs, new NPCs like a Gliscor selling drugs vitamins like HP Max or Atk Max against $99,999... I plan a lot for 1.3, and I hope you guys will enjoy it! Peace! 1.2 Patch Notes: 1.1 Patch Notes: 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 Patch Notes: Here are the features this game has so far Global dungeon related features: - you can now change leader after graduation in a large majority of dungeons - an increased spawn rate: in base games, an enemy spawns every 36 turns and a Kecleon spawns every 3 turns. Now an enemy spawns every 5 turns and a Kecleon spawns every turn. - as a result you will have to face more enemies and use more moves: moves PP and move Accuracy have been increased for a large majority of them, some other deserved nerfs like Imprison or Teleport being great all around moves. - along with Accuracy and PP fixes come what I'd call "AI Fixes" of Blizzard, Powder Snow and Ice Shard, not being handled correctly by the AI - moves are updated so they behave like in Rescue Team DX or Super Mystery Dungeon in terms of range (Light Screen benefits to the whole team, Air Slash is a line of sight move) - Gen 6+ Steel-Type - recruitment rate is higher in dungeons - post-credits Kecleon shops now feature all evolutionary items, including Sun Ribbon and Sun Stone - Shiny System: now some gender-exclusive pokemon have a shiny form, working in a similar way as Strong Foes in RTDX during early main dungeons. Way stronger than normal, they have a low spawn rate and a very low recruitment rate, which as a result gives you 1/4000 chance to recruit a shiny without any recruitment boost applied Pokemon related features: - Pokemon having an hidden ability already present in Gen 4 now have this ability in some way. This include Drought Ninetales for instance, but doesn't include Unburden Sceptile for Balancing reasons - gender dependant abilities - Pokemon having a mega now have their mega typing (Normal/Fighting Lopunny or Grass/Dragon Sceptile). Other pokemons deserving a better typing are changed aswell, following some of Drayano hacks changes (Electric/Dark Luxray for instance) - a large majority of Pokemons now have a moveset according to their Gen 8 movesets. It includes (but isn't limited to) Close Combat Lopunny, Brave Bird Ho-oh or Earth Power Venusaur. Other Pokemon having their types changed now learn stab moves more frequently (like Dragon Pulse Charizard as Level-up) or even learn new moves (like Bug Buzz Flygon) - new TMs: Icy Wind, Fire Punch, ThunderPunch, Ice Punch, AncientPower, Aqua Tail, Earth Power, Gunk Shot, Heat Wave, Iron Head (1.2.1), Outrage, Seed Bomb (1.2.1), Signal Beam (1.2.1), Superpower (1.2.1), Zen Headbutt (1.2.1), Super Fang, Helping Hand, Hyper Voice, Low Kick, Megahorn, Close Combat, Aura Sphere, and Power Whip. Note that only a few are available in 1.2.0, but all will be available in 1.2.1 with a new NPC - egg moves are now part of level up moves - pokemon have a better stats curve/better base stats, so they are easier to grind for endgame dungeons (still need to implement stats curve for a large majority of final evolutions tho). That means as the game goes, pokemon are better all-around. - experience buffs to some final evolved mons, to stick with the global level curve of the hack - legendary Pokemon now have a shiny form with other abilities and better stats QoL features: - you start the game with a 48-Sized bag and 1000 slots in Storage - your starting bag has a plethora of useful items - GtI experience share, giving Standby Pokemon 50% the exp gain you get in dungeon (credits go to Irdkwia) - Move Shortcuts, Disable Tips and Same Type Partner patches are included in this hack - Beach Cave now allows the player to farm useful supplies quickly and easily, in order to prepare yourself for Scenario dungeons - IQ gains are increased: Wonder Gummi gives +50 IQ, same type Gummies give +25, favored type Gummies give +16, neutral type Gummies give +9, unfavored type gummies give +4, Nectar gives +25 - Dojo Dungeons have a high replay ability, permiting an easier gummi farm for Type-Exclusive Mazes, and an easier vitamins farm for Final Maze - though Mazes are restricted to one visit per day before you beat the game. The purpose of this change is mainly because of Gummies being present in here, virtually allowing a quick and infinite Stat boosts farm - Juice Bar animation has been cut - an Experience farming dungeon is unlocked after beating the full game (not Dialga mind you). You can grind your team here, as well as farming gummies and Reviver Seeds in the second floor - you have an higher chance to have a Big Win in Spinda Café - Sentry Duty rewards are more generous - Kangaskhan Rocks are replaced by Porygon2 in dungeons, having more options for the player - IQ Groups have been reworked: Lava Evader and Course Checker are replaced by Multitalent and Gap Prober for every IQ group. IQ Groups already having these skills now have other skills, PP Saver or Erratic Player for example - a new IQ Group: Group S. This group has an unique combination of IQ Skills and is exclusive to shiny legendaries and some other specific species - Mission ranking now follows the real difficulty of the game. Mission rewards are now more relevant for harder missions. - Kecleon Supply shop now offers better items at the end of the game - Surrounded Sea have 2 Blue Gummies in first visit (yes, it's a QoL feature lol) - you can now recruit Shiny Celebi and Purple Kecleon Gameplay related features: In order to offer a better experience to the player, this game proposes hard-but-fair challenges: - Complete Team Control Patch from Cipnit, you can now control the whole team, permiting new strategies and combinations. You can toggle on and off full team control by pressing Start at the beginning of a turn - allies can now trigger traps - dungeon have new gimmicks (weather oriented dungeons, debuffing enemies, PP consuming dungeons, etc...) - in these dungeons, some floors have Reviver Seeds guaranteed to spawn (Quicksand Pit B10F for instance) - dungeon partners are more reliable (Cresselia is no longer a burden lol) - some dungeons now have a completely revamped spawn table according to a specific "property" of the species in it (typing, IQ Group, abilities, starter exclusive dungeon, sudo exclusive dungeon, etc...) - dungeons now have increased IQ enemies (expect 330 IQ enemies after Chasm Cave) - Burn damage now occurs every 10 turns - Intimidator IQ Skill now activates 24% of the time instead of 32% of the time - you can no longer stall bosses: you have a low number of turns required to beat a boss (50 Turns for Spiritomb, 30 for Dialga) - bosses are made harder and also have new gimmicks - Aegis Cave puzzle has been removed - new quests and endgame challenges - speed related effects last earlier, it does include Slow Start - level curve adapted to the fact you gain more exp. Expect yourself to be level 100 by the end of the story! - an anti-cheat was added: you can no longer use Type-Exclusive gems in story dungeons. If you try to bring them to a dungeon, they'll be removed from your inventory before post-Dialga, and removed from your bag during story missions - along with that, you can no longer enter Wonder Mail S from the main menu. If you try to generate basic missions for first floors in order to have free Exploration Points, it'll not work anymore. You can't generate missions targeting the first floor of a dungeon too. - some dungeons have more floors, it includes Seven Treasures dungeons, Surrounded/Miracle Sea, and Spacial Rift Depths - Zero Isle has been made harder (North doesn't allow rescues and items when entering it, South scales up to level 45, Center expects you to beat it in one blow with IQ Skills disabled) - Destiny Tower is now SPMD one, allows recruiting and has unique species in it Screenshots: Title screens were changed so they use HGSS' Mystri Stage cutscene images UI has been revamped: it's now constant dark mode This hack features Item Icons like in SPMD (patch made by me) Here's a screen showing other QoL features More diverse recruitment tables, along with recruitment enabled in a large majority of dungeons, and even new species recruitable! New dungeons, and even more boss battles/gimmicks Speaking of bosses, here are screenshots of harder boss fights In order to make the game harder, some bosses were changed New events showcase, including new boss fights Bosses are now indefinitely repeatable, and now give better rewards New exclusive items for new Pokemon, along with Arceus exclusive items New TMs, with flavor text. Here are 4 examples Shiny System and more! As of 1.2.0, here are the main "issues" you can expect: - Arceus still has the dummy sprite - Rotom-Forms have Rotom sprite, though portraits, stats, movesets and typings are implemented - You can't enter Spacial Rift from Crossroads with more than 24 items - Some TMs may have incorrect compatibilities/some compatibilities missing, don't hesitate to DM me on Discord so I can correct these moveset errors on further releases - 1.0 and 1.1 Saves may have some pokemon reverted to Shiny in 1.2 - I haven't uploaded any documentation yet Here's the to do list: - adding Arceus and Rotom forms sprites (since I'm not a spriter, it doesn't depend of me) - for 1.3: finish new TMs compatibility, add the reward intended for Special Episode 5 completion, improve the Dojo anti-abuse check, custom move effects, custom moves such as Shell Smash, and move fixes like Gen 5+ Tail Glow - documentation Special thanks: The most important part of this post for me! Because this project wouldn't have made this far without them! - Parakoopa: he's SkyTemple developer and always here to help when it's necessary for me. The community around SkyTemple is so kind and so cheerful that I couldn't thank him enough for that. Here's the link of SkyTemple Discord. - PsyCommando: one of the very first to research and investigate PMD Sky in this post. His tool gfxcrunch helped me with sprite editing in the early days. - UsernameFodder: the author of this Google Doc where you can find a useful list of IDs by index for quite everything, from Item IDs to Dungeon IDs. A great help when scripting! - Audino: he programmed SpriteBot featuring a more than never easy way to import sprites in a PMD Sky Rom - gromcrunch for Tilesets - Fable_Amare for Arceus portrait and Rotom Forms portrait. Make sure to check their work! - Lumi for Grovyle's asset Lasts but no least: - Cipnit/Jirt: The one who made this Complete Team Control Hack - techticks: worked on an ASM Editor which works similar to softs like algobox. It still lacks a lot of structures, but for now the UI itself is huge to build at least 80% of Gen V+ move effects along with eos-move-effects project examples - Irdkwia: he helped the community a real lot recently with his research. Fixed Room, Mission Ranking, Treasure Town Shops and a plethora of sprite assets are editable thanks to him. GtI experience system and future custom move effects ASM hack are by him. - End45: this man is cracked. Without him, half of this hack features wouldn't be possible. I'll list all the help he provided to me: IQ Gain table editing, Type Table editing, IQ Groups editing, Doom Desire move effect, exclusive items editing, control patches, and even more! Always knowledgeable, and always reseaching a ton of stuff, helping others to succeed in their own research, I think we can't thank him enough for all the stuff he's doing for the community The xdelta patch is found here (last update: 2/22/2021): PMD Explorers of Alpha 12.xdelta. You need to patch an US Explorers of Sky Rom in order to make it work. This hack is expected to be played on an emulator so I'm clueless about playing it on real hardware (it seems to work on real hardware from what I've heard). Don't hesitate to join SkyTemple Discord if you want to ask me for help or report any bug (Discord Tag: Solace?#7229 or Mond#3823), however even with my Discord tag, I highly recommand you to join SkyTemple Discord since I'm mostly active here

  3. Pokémon Blaze Black 2 | Pokémon Volt White 2 Base Game: Pokémon Black 2 | Pokémon White 2 Current Version: 1.1 Last Updated: 11th November, 2012 Summary Pokémon Blaze Black 2 & Pokémon Volt White 2 are essentially the sequels to my Black & White hacks known as Blaze Black and Volt White. The usual rules with my hacks apply; the main feature is that all 649 Pokémon are available for capture somewhere in the game, and the trainers have all had their rosters changed in order to maintain a much harder challenge than the original game, as well as having an increased variety of opponents to fight. There's also a large amount of alternative features these hacks offer, which range from differences to the Pokémon themselves to the presence of a couple new TMs. If I'm not mistaken, these are also the first Black 2 and White 2 hacks on offer. Additionally, the two versions only differ in terms of their aesthetic differences, such as the appearance of Opelucid City, the title screen, etcetera. So basically, just pick whichever colour takes your fancy! Specific Features The wild Pokémon have been edited in each and every area of the game. Most areas now contain at least 8 Pokémon species, and in most cases, more! You'll be able to attain a complete PokéDex within the limits of the game itself, and the majority of Pokémon are available no later than the seventh badge, meaning you can form basically any team you want! There's a couple legendaries that you can't get until after the Elite Four, but aside from that... The rosters of almost all of the trainers in the game have been edited. The exception to this at present are the Dome trainers, as they aren't really necessary and there's no proper trainer editing tool available for B2W2 yet. This has also raised the level curve of the game, meaning you can expect to beat the first round of the Elite Four somewhere in the 70s levelwise. Most notably Gym Leaders, your rival and the Elite Four have all been made significantly tougher. Gym Leaders will also have differing Pokémon amounts depending on the mode you play; Normal Mode will have them with anywhere from 3 to 5 Pokémon, whereas Challenge Mode will pit you against a full team of six. The Elite Four and Champion also hold some surprises in Challenge Mode... There's been a large number of edits to Pokémon. These can include the level up moves they learn, the abilities they get, their compatibility with Move Tutors and TMs, and even their base stats. There's a document included that will tell you all you need to know. This also makes Dream World abilities significantly easier to obtain. However, if this particular point doesn't appeal to you, the Vanilla version of the hack cuts it out. Some attacks have also been edited, for example the Pledge moves having 100 base power or Cut now being a Grass-type move. This is also removed from the Vanilla version of the hack. There's also been some changes to evolutions. The majority of these involve editing the trade evolutions; in most cases you will now simply be able to 'Use' the item like an evolution stone - for example, using a Magmarizer on a Magmar to evolve it - to do what you would normally need to trade for. For those who evolve by trade but don't need an item, a new item called the Covenant Ore has been introduced and is available in several places through the game; it works like an evolutionary stone, so you're still able to evolve them at any time. Leafeon and Glaceon are now obtainable through new items known as the Woodland Ore and Frozen Ore, to get around their areas being postgame. Shelmet and Karrablast instead follow a Mantyke routine where the other needs to be in the party for them to evolve. Finally, some of the Unovian Pokémon such as Scraggy, Mienfoo and Larvesta have had reductions to their evolution levels to make them more usable in comparison to the older species. Items that you receive and find lying in the field have been changed considerably - this is generally done in order to bring almost all TMs available before the Elite Four are defeated. Notable changes include much earlier Flamethrower and Thunderbolt TMs, and even an Earthquake TM as early as the fifth gym! Doesn't quite beat Platinum, but it's close to. You'll also be able to find a lot of evolution items on the map somewhere, such as the Reaper Cloth, Up-Grade and Protector. A couple of the Poké Marts around the region have had some edits. Examples include the ability to buy Luxury Balls in Virbank City, Heart Scales and shards in Driftveil City, and any sort of evolution item you want in the Route 9 department store. There have been some text edits; a couple of these are sprinkled references, but for the most part it's to made the item changes make sense with the dialogue. In addition, Juniper's speech at the beginning has been changed; this is the tip-off that you've got the hack working correctly. One-time encounter Pokémon such as Cobalion, Virizion, Volcarona, Braviary etc. have had their levels raised in order to fit with the new level curve. In addition, there's also a much bigger variety of one-time encounters, mostly dealing with legendaries. Ever thought you couldn't find Articuno in front of Twist Mountain, or Kyogre within the Abyssal Ruins? Well, now you can! You'll be able to unlock a fraction of these around the eighth gym badge, then the rest sometime after the Pokémon League. Are you up to catching them all? Some of the trades within the game have also been edited, and given much better IVs. Players will now be able to trade for a Togepi, a Gengar and an Exeggutor before the Elite Four is dealt with. Note that any trades with Yancy and Curtis are not changed. New events have been added into the game. Apart from the aforementioned overworlds, there's also Gym Leader rematches outside the PWT, the ability to challenge Hoenn Leaders at various points in the game, Harlequins who will give out starters and even the ability to battle with Hilbert and Hilda! You'll also be given the keys for Easy Mode and Challenge Mode almost right at the beginning of the game! The Pokémon that appear within the Hidden Grottos around Unova have also been changed. This is a primary way to get the starter Pokémon that you don't receive, but also has a large assortment of other Pokémon. If you play the Vanilla version, this'll be important in order to keep your Pokémon on par! Most Pokémon with useful DW abilities will be present somewhere. There's also been some TM replacements. Say good-bye to Sky Drop, Quash and Struggle Bug, for they've now been replaced by Hurricane, Sucker Punch and Bug Buzz respectively. All of these changes are well documented in PDF guides that come with the download. If you want to know what's been added or changed, simply consult them! Screenshots There are plenty of screenshots on offer if you want to take a look! Simply open the spoiler. Credits Kaphotics: I cannot stress how helpful Kaph has been in the creation of this hack; he's been great as both an advisor and a researcher into the workings of scripts in the game. He also taught me a little about RAM editing, which made testing some things that much easier. His LUA scripting abilities were also great for figuring out file numbers and co-ordinates! Truly a saviour. likeicareusewe/kidisnice87: Another very helpful contributor to the hack, he along with one other person worked as my helpers for BETA testing. Thanks to him, a lot of the bugs that would have otherwise gone unnoticed were ironed out before release. A huge thank you! Lazerith: My other beta tester, who is also a Pokémon hacker himself (Pokémon Origin Platinum is his work). Again, thank you. pichu2001: The scripting knowledge he posted over at Project Pokémon's forums was exactly what I needed to start messing around with scripts. It's thanks to him and Kaph that I was able to get things like the legends working correctly. Pokegirl4ever: The Genesect overworld sprite used in the game is her work. knivez69: The logos at the top were made by him. They're the main people who helped with this one, but my thanks goes out to any supporters and the people who've helped me out and suggested ideas along the way! Bugs and Errors Keys unlocking will not be saved if you don't save your game before getting them. There's no way to fix this entirely, yet. The King's Rock will not currently work on Slowpoke, so Slowking is impossible to obtain short of catching it in the Wild directly. Poliwhirl, however, is fine. If you're desperate, insert this into a/0/1/9 using NitroExplorer. The Pokémon breeders aren't currently set with teams to help you EV your Pokémon. This isn't a bug per se, it's just an idea I meant to do that totally slipped my mind. Having it in the buglist should remind me to fix it, though! Version Updates Download YOU MUST HAVE ROMS WITHOUT ANTI-PIRACY PATCHES APPLIED FOR THESE PATCHES TO WORK! There are patches for both the Complete and Vanilla versions available in the download. The Vanilla version cuts out the changes to Pokémon such as stats, level up moves, abilities etcetera and the edits to the power and type of some Attacks. However, using the Vanilla version does not prevent compatibility with the three new TMs in the game. NOTE: You are able to use your 1.00 save file with 1.1. However, it will cause most of the new events (so all of the legendaries, the Veteran in Giant Chasm etc.) to appear immediately due to the changed flag numbers. You can always just ignore them (including Zapdos, who has a gap behind it), though a New Game will be required for everything to appear correct. This includes even if you've caught the legendaries before!

  7. Version 1.5.0

    7176 downloads

    This is a mod of Pokemon Rumble (Wii) that was made for the shiny hunting community event Rumble Weekend! The original Pokemon Rumble contains only the 1st and 4th gen Pokemon, but this mod reintroduces the 2nd & 3rd gen Pokemon (and their shinies) to the game in a new terminal known as "GX"! The layer of fog on all stages has also been removed, and the collection screen has been updated to support all 493 available Pokemon! The original base game also remains fully intact in order to preserve the rarity of certain Pokemon. Included are 3 bps patches to be applied to a USA version of Pokemon Rumble to get you into GX! Due to slight differences in dumps of the games out there, there were 3 patches made to ensure it works. (details on how to obtain the original game obviously not provided) This is fully cross-compatible with save files from the original Pokemon Rumble (USA natively, PAL/JP with some additional steps detailed in the FAQ doc linked below), and it can be installed on actual hardware via homebrew. This patch currently ONLY works with the USA version of the game due to slight scripting/file structure differences that exist in the JP/PAL versions of the game, so if you want to play it on a Japanese or PAL Wii, you will need to do some region changing upon installation with homebrew. This mod is still very much a work-in-progress, and for full details on what's available/what is planned for the future, read the readme file inside the zip folder! -NEW- There is now a document with frequently asked questions and answers! I hope to continue updating this as I keep updating the game! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iVykfxF5ekN4cg3Nes07Akt5ABdmFFDdMr8GbpYmp48/edit?usp=sharing -"WindyPrairie"
