Thanks! I've been working on re-ordering some more things in order to include the new B2W2 forms (which I had only planned on Kyurem getting a new one before all that was revealed). I've had to make some forms separate Pokemon, and I'm hoping to somehow make a script that'll change one Pokemon from another, retaining the stats and such, which is as close to a form change as I can do (if I can even do it haha). Pokesav may be needed it I can't pull it off, and I can at least make a custom version of that.
I've been thinking of making two versions like those hacks - one without any changes to stats, and another with some changes. Like the classic and complete versions. And I've been playing that hack, I have over 80 hours in it so far haha. It's been helping me decide the levels and such.
Now, a general announcement: Most of the 3rd/4th gen Pokemon were just there because I hadn't had anything to replace them yet, but now I've decided, in the 'empty' spaces, I'll include Pokemon that people have wanted in, and have posted in one of these threads, as long as there's room for them. I've put the Drapion line and Lucario line back in, which are some of my favorites too, as well as the Dusknoir line and Probopass line (since they have cross-generation evolutions, and I had said that all Pokemon like that will be in the game [with the exception of Baby Pokemon]). Most every 3rd and 4th gen legendary has been replaced, with the exception of the 4 Regis, Deoxys, Cresselia, Darkrai, and Arceus. Every starter Pokemon is also still in the hack. All of this is still subject to change, though I am going to need to have a final list sometime soon. This probably will be the final list unless something arises where I need to change something, which I can't think of anything that would do so. I'm also including some fakemon, which are just for fun, and I'm not going to force the player to interact with them - they'll be there if you want to use them, and hopefully I've chosen some that people won't completely hate. One that I'm willing to reveal right now is an evolution of Weezing, which will evolve with the use of a King's Rock. It's name is Choaking. Very punny. Then there will also be some new fake fossil Pokemon, as well as a few joke Pokemon (again, just for fun, since this is a hack and all).
I'll list the Pokemon left that have yet to be replaced, and the reasons they're still there. The spaces left are the Pokemon previously programmed as:
Shedinja-for some reason, I can't make this space have more than 1 HP, even though I change the values. most likely will be replaced with a jokemon because of its unchangeable 1 HP.
Spinda-its randomized spot pattern yields it a unique space. not sure what to do.
Castform-different forms, yields more possibilities than other spaces. will probably keep it in the game because it's one of my favorites
Burmy/Wormadam-different forms, yields more possibilities than other spaces. these will be replaced, because mothim is gone, but idk what to put there yet. hoping to find/think of a fakemon that has interesting forms...
I created a freewebs site for this game, and I'm going to put more information on the site within the next month or so, including the final list of Pokemon in the game (though some of the fakemon I'm going to hide until the game is released). I'll post more info when I'm able to. Remember my twitter!
And on a more personal note (though still Pokemon related), ever since gen 2 came out, I had thought of two ideas for Pokemon that I had hoped would become a real Pokemon someday. One of them was a Ghost/Fire chandelier, which happily became a reality. I'm going to include my other idea in this hack, so I'm quite interested in seeing what people will think of it!
