    ... You're telling me this whole time instead of manually uploading ten files to MEGA whenever I update the hack i could have just been building the 7z files into my google drive and letting it auto-update?
    Instructions on how to do that are in the OP and second post. If I posted a Randomized build, everyone who gets it would have the same random encounters. Randomizing it yourself isn't hard. Make sure you use the Leveled or Expanded builds as a base for randomizing.

    Do I have to know something beforehand if I want to go online with the expanded build?

    Whatever you catch in the Expanded Build won't be legal for trade or battle. No idea how stringent Nintendo's hack checkers are, and I haven't heard of anyone getting banned for using hacked pokemon (thanks to trading) but don't blame me if you get banned for using Expanded Build mons online.

    Maybe it did have a twisted spoon then. I am on 1.7 but it evolved while I was still on 1.6

    If you're on windows, double click the bat file. All the bat file does is make the title screen work in all languages (it just copies the english intro movie to the other languages). This is to save file size in the distro pack since the intro movie is a relatively large file.
    The game text changes won't be applied in Italian. If you're okay with English i recommend playing in english.

    I didn't change evolution methods at all between 1.6 and 1.7 and haven't touched Kadabra's evolution method since v1.3, so you probably just didn't notice the Twisted Spoon. And v1.0 to v1.2 Kadabra just wasn't able to use the Twisted Spoon to evolve.

    Assuming you're using the Drag and Drop pack, you need to update. If you don't, the game will freeze whenever you go to a Poké Mart.
    If you built and installed a CIA or are playing through a Gateway, you shouldn't update, or you'll have the same freeze problem.
    Play it yourself and find out!

    The game is designed so you'll be properly leveled if you fight all the trainers without grinding in the grass at all. The Kahuna is in the low Lv20s.

    Look, Ultra Sun/Moon are going to be the last 3DS pokemon games, which means they'll be the last ones to get a romhack by me for a damn while. Of course I'm gonna hack them ♥

    Didn't realize until now that the USUM hacks have the original names in them "Supernova, Penumbra". Also noticed the trainer in Po Town had three Unowns, a D, I, and O. (DIO)

    "Grand Trials" are different from "Trials" when it comes to unlocking Poké Mart shop lists.

    So you're naming the sequel to umbra moon after the much weaker part of a shadow? Sounds like a bad omen...
