    Hello and thank you for this amazing hack !
    I wondered, would it be possible, since nearly all items found at battle tree can be bought somewhere else or are useless with the new evolution methods, could you add the unavailable in-game (in a normal game, of course) Megastones there ?
    Also, you said you changed the Pickup tables. What changes did you make ?

    For the other Mega Stones, you can find them on wild Pokémon. (i.e. Beedrillite on Weedle, Blastoisinite on Squirtle)

    I know, but if you already have lots of BP on a save, you could just buy the Megastones instead of having to search the pokémons holding these (and it would allow just farming the Battle Tree for BP to buy the Mega Stones, so you wouldn't have to move from BT).

    I will be doing a project with Ultra Sun/Moon when they drop. Hope they're significantly different from Sun and Moon, I was really hoping to work with Sinnoh instead of going back to Alola.

    At least now I'm prepared and will make sure to play your version first so the cutscenes aren't as horrendously annoying, allowing me to get the full experience.

    I'm really, REALLY hoping they do gyms again. RRSS Gyms were much cooler than USNM Trials.

    I might end up recycling some of my favorite sets from NS/UM in Ultra NS/UM (name subject to change). Will do my best to make it feel like a fresh experience to those who played NS/UM though!

    I encounter a problem after update Luma with your mod. So i was force to reinstall the game, it was take forever almost, and the download the new version of the mod and finaly the game start. What happen? Simple when i was launch the game it stays forever on the boot screen after you launch the game (the one with the Nintendo 3DS logo). I don't know what cause the problem, but after re install all it works with no problem. Fortunaly i make a backup of the save file so i was not losing anything.

    @Dio Vento can you make a version with out mega evoltuions till the post game? It's an unfair advantage for the foes, which I don't like. and when you want to work with sinnoh why not making a really nice polished pokemon platinum hack with scripts etc? for hg/ss also exists fairy typ, so maybe it's also possible with platinum?

    Unfair advantages the AI has over you in NS/UM
    • Better teambuilding
    • Mega Evolution
    Unfair advantages YOU have over the AI (without "cheating" using Shift Mode or other such things)
    • Actual strategy
    • Items in battle
    • The ability to lose a fight and go back in with more experience
    • To reiterate the first point, an intelligent human mind
    I don't feel like working with the DS games, if I were to do a DS hack it would be for Black/White (2).
    Yeah, sounds like SD corruption. But just to be safe, make sure you delete the old SaltySD-based file structure as described in the second post in this thread.

    Announcing Pokémon Supernova Sun & Penumbra Moon! I'll reveal exactly as much information as Game Freak did as to how these will be different from Nova Sun & Umbra Moon.
    As with this release, I won't be making a thread for these until they're complete. I intend to release Supernova Sun & Penumbra Moon v1.0 as feature-complete as the latest release of Nova Sun & Umbra Moon!

    Yeah, that's correct, but megas are unobtainable which is similar to legendaries. I mean it would be also not to difficult to beat, especially with the not that awesome AI, but unfair. In the end it's your hack, and it's nice besides that. I though the names of usum hack will be Ultra Nova Sun and Ultra umbra moon, but nice you were more creative than GF. Let's hope that the new games will be good or even better than SM

    Dam this was quick...well is only and accoucment but quick like a Linoone that use Extremespeed.
    I have one suggestion, this is mostly a joke coincidence for me. I like the Pokèmon Supernova Sun but even if dosen't make sense, becouse the Moon is not a star, it will be nice to called the two hackrom Pokèmon BigBang Sun and Pokèmon Supernova Moon. Why? Well the color you choose remind me to this games:

    Yeh apperently it was SD corruption. I miss to mention in the original post but in the process to update i follow your intresuction on the second post step by spet and now, like i says before, it works perfectly with no problem.

    It would be pretty cool if you continued to speak Italian and simply used the captions as "subtitles", part of what makes watching LPs fun is reactions~

    :yay3ds: Your versions are always amazing so I really look forward to it! Preordered both so I can play your hack alongside base-game. Hopefully they are significantly different than the originals so you have more to work with.

    My Kadabra evolved into Alakazam at LVL 17 without holding any item and in the evolution change logs it says its supposed to evolve at LVL 38 with a twisted spoon. Is this a bug noticed by anyone else or am I just lucky?

    I haven't seen it in the original post and so i am asking straight away: Can i get with your version all pokemon (doesnt matter if sun or moon) or do i have to trade in pokemon which are not present in the used version like sun or moon.

    It should work fine. Are you on NS/UM v1.7? You might have caught it holding a Twisted Spoon, the item is consumed when it evolves.
    The Expanded Build has the exact same encounter tables between Nova Sun & Umbra Moon. No added Legendaries or UBs, but every other species is available.

    Could you make a Randomized version? It would be so cool
