You awake in what used to be Littleroot town, having no memory of how you got there or even who you really are. It soon becomes apparent however that something very big has happened while you were out: Hoenn has been invaded by an army of zombies.
Working with Prof. Birch, you set off to find your brother Landon and Birch's daughter May, who have both gone missing in an attempt to find the source of the undead plague. At the same time, you try to uncover your past. On the way you face zombies, witches, demons and the enigmatic Taoist, Gleis, as well as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Hoenn Internal Affairs Army, and, eventually, the architect of all this misery himself: Senex.
However, it isn't nearly as dark as all that: there are also the cheerfully insane (and improbably numerous) Deadly Seven, the unruffled and cynical Army Recruiters Tina and Bruce, and a psychic dragon's egg. Not to mention a special appearance from the Denjuu universe.
Features and New Stuff
New scripts, new overworlds, new sprites - the usual
Exciting new areas, such as the hidden Meathouse, the maddening Island of Calm and the unexpected Hoenn University of Film
Several zombie versions of normal Pokémon, two of which are capturable
An indeterminate number of Fakemon (somewhere between 40 and 50), including a good number of hidden evolutions to existing Pokémon
New legendaries, some of which are very, very evil
7(?) Sinnoh Pokémon
5(?) Isshu (or Unova, depending on how much you care) Pokémon
Most Gyms have now been destroyed by zombies, and hence Badges are come by in somewhat unusual ways
A few type changes for Pokémon here and there.
A surprising pet shop run by a certain Count
A host of deceitful characters who will do anything to lie to you
An unusual and somewhat wandering storyline
An enormous number of references to books, films, manga, other hacks and other such things
A somewhat darker plot than usual
A slightly increased difficulty level
The type changes mentioned above are as follows:
Luxio => Electric/Dark
Luxray => Electric/Dark
Meowth => Normal/Dark
Persian => Normal/Dark
Seviper => Poison/Dark
Banette => Ghost/Fighting
Milotic => Water/Psychic
Hariyama => Fighting/Normal
There might be one or two more that I've forgotten about... I'll post them if they exist and I remember.
The Generation Four and Five Pokémon, for those who are impatient/overly curious, are:
Shinx, Luxio, Luxray; Emolga; Bouffalant; Spiritomb; Blitzle, Zebstrika; Weavile; Basculin; Drilbur, Excadrill
Of course, no hack thread would be complete without screenshots. Literally. I mean, the Powers that Be wouldn't allow it.
No one likes to admit they're there, but they always are:
Some tile glitches in various locations around Hoenn
Occasionally, having your emulator on super-speed will cause certain scripts to malfunction
There is a part of the introduction that says 'And you are?', which appears to be unremovable.
After defeating Demon Corpse Zabulon, exit the forest before opening the menu or you will end up controlling Demon Corpse Andromalius when you come back instead of the player. The chances of doing this are especially high if Andromalius is on the screen.
Actually, the Andromalius thing might have been fixed. If someone could confirm it to make sure it's not just a fluke on my version, that'd be great.
The game is about 91% done. There are several sidequests that don't yet exist. Some secret areas/side areas haven't been made yet, and not everything has a sprite - though hopefully everyone that you'll see in-game does.
Oh, and not all of the player character overworlds are complete yet. Most of the male player overworlds are, but unfortunately none of the female ones are ready to be inserted yet.
EVERYONE, PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED ALL EIGHT BADGES TO CHALLENGE HOENN'S ELITE FOUR IN THIS GAME.
ALSO, PLEASE STOP TRYING TO FIX THE ELEVATOR THE FIRST TIME YOU GO IN THE SUBMARINE. YOU FIX IT THE SECOND TIME AROUND.
For those stuck on the Boardroom maze:
For those stuck on the S.S. Cangrejo:
Bring a Magnemite to the elevator and a Ditto to the warp. But please please PLEASE understand this: the first time you enter the submarine, Usher asks you to fix the engine, not the elevator. So don't bother trying to fix the elevator, because it won't work.
For those stuck on the Pacifidlog Gym Puzzle:
Obtain a Chikuwa, either from the little girl in Pacifidlog or from Don Pachi's Christmas Shop on Mt. Chimney, then take this to Chef Maximilian in Lilycove to unlock his shop. Buy the correct chromatic food from him (a clue to which one is found in Genesis 25), take it to the mirror, and work out what to say (again, this is based on Genesis 25).
