<b>Final Update</b> Hi, everybody, it's be TB-Da Bandit! Alright, I'm here today releasing my hack of the platinum version, the game formely known as Platinum Plus. My bro gave me the idea of changing it to Sol Platinum, on an account that I'm using Heartgold and 'SOUL' Silver sprites in my game. In this installment, I've included, yes you know, inserted sprites from HGSS, and changed some of the other Pokemon sprites. If see that any new sprite look weird or seem to be standing over their shadow, please inform me. I've already tried correcting as many of them as possible... ...Also, a different from Platinum Plus is that I've slightly beefed up the elite four and champ level. I also, finally finished editing all the Pokemon center challenges and wild Pokemon that appears in the water. The Pokemon in this hack learns slightly different moves than from the original game. Like for example: the Gible evolution line can learn Magnitude and stuff. I also changed just a few Pokemon's Abilities! Like Dragonite having Magic Guard and Umbreon having Pressure. I did try my best in editing very trainers you encounter in-game! This includes the trainers on stark mountain, ya know the battle frontier part and pokemon center battles, if I haven't said that before. What I didn't decide to do was edited the trainers that get significantly stronger through vs. seeker rematches\which I renamed on the game...So don't bother facing trainers that you KNOW get stronger, when using the Fight Beeper... Since, I actually didn't know how to add any new event...yet...I had no choice, but to place the non-native legendary Pokemon in random throughout the sinnoh region. You can find them in the following places: Sendoff Spring, Snowpoint Temple, Stark Mountain (Outside and within the cavern) Turnback Cave and the Route 230, 226, 229, 227, 225, and 224! I'm not tellin' which legend appears there you just have to find out by hangin' around their; legendary pokemon only become available after you defeat the game the first time. Closing notes: Hey look, I'm well aware of the american version of hgss being out and all, but since it's unplayable at the time, why don't you all just enjoy my hack, until somebody finds a way to fix out all the ap crap in the rom. That's all I ask of you. Beside, my game is the closest you're gonna get to an american hgss! LOL Also, I HAVE NO IDEA, I mean none whatsoever, if this patch will work on any flashcarts or card...thingys. I never used those types of program...exe. things. I strongly recommend you playing this on an emulator, until I figure out how to fix this. Anywho, here's the link to my game: <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/?qzmouyowydy" target="_blank">http://www.mediafire.com/?qzmouyowydy</a> This patch is Gui Type, just so you know. This patch is slightly different than the original one; in which I've already took down. I've edited some more pokemon front sprite. This includes; Vileplume, Lapras, Quilava, Totodile. I redid Farafetch'D Meganium and probably more...I dunno there's so many of'em now. I tried fixing Dragonite, cuz it looked like it was floatin' in the air, but the HGSS sprite is too small. I also changed Miltank and reversal Venasaur's sprite. Okay, I've also gotten around in changing just a few back sprites; nothing too significant; Cyndaquil, Espeon and Mareep. I also was finally able to increase the trainers AI value this time around. The trainers get much stronger and smarter as you progress in the game. Their pokemon seemed to be ev and iv trained. Also, the seals, when facing some trainers, have been removed from their pokemon. Example; you know how Flint and Volkner Electavire and Magmortar come out with seals, well since I've increased there AI the seal animation have been removed. I'm guess this is my final update on this mod...I'll probably start on a HGSS mod, I guess, I dunno. I mean, the game's fully playable now. Well, on my computer it is. I do hope you all enjoy, if you find any problems, please report it to me. Wild starter Pokemon are available too, but they appear in random spots. Here are there locations. If you're interested. Warning: Spoilers inside! Charmander and Cyndaquil are always found in the same spot; Cyndaquil only appears in the daytime and Charmander appears at night. Here is where you can find them: Fuego Ironworks and Route 215 (I recommend catching them here, cuz they're levels will be higher when finding them in Fuego Ironworks. Chikorita (Day) and Turtwig (Night) can both be found on Route 208. Chikorita can also be found on Route 210. Treecko (Night) and Bulbasaur (Day) can always be found in the same area. They both appear on Route 206. You can also catch them in the Great Marsh. Mudkip can only be found in the Great Marsh as well... Piplup can be obtained in two area. Route 205 (Night time only and only before the Eterna Forest walk with Chelr...The woman with the Chansey) And again in Route 213 (Day time only) Chimchar and Torchic can be found in Oreburgh Gate. Chimchar on the first floor and Torchic on the second... Totodile and Squirtle can be found wherever you can find a body of water, just bring out your fishing rod (Good Rod) for Totodile and surf around for Squirtle. If you don't know how to make your trade-evolution Pokemon evolve, just jet down below and the evolution walkthrough I put together. Once again, if you interested in looking. Warning: Spoilers inside! Poliwhirl evolves into Poliwrath by being exposed to the Water Stone. (Some wild water type might hold water stones) It evolves into Politoed by holding the Splash Plate and leveling up in sun light. Kadabra evolves into Alakazam by holding the Mind Plate and leveling up in sun light. Machoke evolves into Machamp by holding the Fist Plate and leveling up in sun light. (If you don't know what this means, it means; Daytime) Graveler evolves into Golem by holding the Earth Plate and leveling up in sun light. (Daytime) Haunter evolves into Gengar by holding the Spooky Plate and leveling up in moon light. (Nightime) Slowpoke still evolves into Slowbro at Lv 37, but evolves into Slowking by exposing it to the Water Stone. Onix evolves into Steelix by leveling up inside Mt. Coronet, if was possible to do this inside Iron Island, trust me...It would be there instead of here. Second verse, same as the first, Rhydon also evolves into Rhyperior by walking around and leveling up inside Mt. Coronet, and my opinion about the Iron Island thing remain the same. Seadra evolves into Kingdra by exposing it to the luring effects of the Water Stone. Scyther evolves into Scizor at Lv 42. Electabuzz evolves into Electivire by exposing it to the Thunder Stone. Magmar evolutionary condition is also similar to that of Electabuzz, just use the friggen Fire Stone on it, then presto, you have Magfatass. Don't worry all of Eevee evolutionary conditions are still the same, so no sweating when catching one in Eterna Forest. Porygon evolves into Porygon2 by successfully reaching Lv 38 and evolves into Porygon-Z by using the Dawn Stone on it. Now, going straight to the Hoenn section, Kirla evolves into Gallade and Gardevior with two different conditions. When a male Kirla reaches Lv 30 it will evolve into Gallade and when a female Kirla reaches Lv 30 it will respectively evolves into Gallade's counterpart, Gardevior...It's just that simple, there shouldn't be a Gardevior with nads walking around, that just WEIRD, so that why I changed it this way. Trapinch evolves into Vibrava at Lv 28 and into Flygon at Lv 40. I did that because Flygon is one of my favorite Pokemon. On a strange twist of faith, Feebas evolves by showing it the Dawn Stone and awakening the poor thing inner beauty...or some crap like that. Dusclops evolves into Dusknoir by exposing it to the Dusk Stone. Get it, Dusknoir...Dusk Stone...Alright, not funny. Okay...Moving on...Snorunt still evolves the same way so don't catch a female Snorunt, level it up to 40 and expect it to evolve into Froslass...Because it won't, it'll just turn into Glalie. Clamperl, it evolves into both Huntail and Gorebyess, by respectively exposing them to either the sun or moon stone. Now, let's foray straight to the Sinnoh Section, which won't be very long...Really. Budew evolves into Roselia at Lv 15, something the original programmers should of done. Ya know, I wasn't really never that fund of the friendship evolve thing, so I decided to make Chingling evolve into Chimecho with a moon stone. Buneary evolves into Lopunny at Lv 30. Munchlax evolves into Snorlax, once reaching the Lv 30 mark. Riolu evolves into Lucario on Lv 30, as well. Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Azurill, Espeon, Umbreon Golbat and Togepi, all still evolve by friendship evolution. Last and finally not least, I would like to thank my little bro for beta testing for me. Also, if you're wanting to play with the National Dex at the beginning, I suggest downloading Poke'sav...I just couldn't figure out how to put the national dex at the beginning. If you're searching for any specific type of Pokemon, please tell and I will tell you their locations. Also, I will soon be doing a walkthrough of what to expect in Sol Platinum...Basically the level of the pokemon of all the important battles. Right now, I'm just reveal the gym leader's pokemon, items they hold and levels. If you don't won't to look at it, just don't click the spoiler down below.

Open makes the game run slow in the openworld. Look, I'm not saying that my game even FALL in the same class of Bloody Platinum or that of the Enhanced Edition, I'm only just asking that you test out my game and see how you like, see how it feel.
