SECOND UPDATE - UP TO GYM FIGHT IN HEARTHOME CITY Hello Hello Everyone. I know that there were a lot of really good Platinum hacks lately, however I've still decided to make a new one. Why after playing so many hacks you would want to check another one, like mine? The answer is easy - I guarantee you that every battle in this version will be really challenging, on the other hand no fights will be impossible to win. I've focused on one topic - each trainer will fight as hard as he can - everyone wants to become a champion! Almost every trainer will use various items to help his team! Each trainer class will use different Pokémon, items and tactics. I hope that you will report me you feelings about the battles so far - is someone using to weak Pokémon - or too strong ones. I am making this hack for you guys - so I need to ask you what you want! PLEASE GIVE ME A FEEDBACK AND POST YOUR IDEAS - what you want to be changed? So, if you have time, please play up to first fight with Jupiter - new version will be updated in every 3 - 4 days - you still can change history and decide how hard it will be at the end! I really need your opinions - I am making this for you, not myself - thats why your opinion is crucial. So, what's new? # TRAINERS All Trainers have more and different Pokémon. Many trainers will use items. Some Pokémon will have held items. Ace Trainers will have really strong Pokémon - watch out for them - of course when I will reach them in editing Every Pokémon (INCLUDING legendaries) will be used by the NPCs! Some Trainer's names have changed - due to PPRE bug I've needed to shorten every name to max. 7 letters. Thanks to this no trainer's name will appear as "???" (Like Gardenia, switched to Gardena) # WILD POKéMON All Pokémon will be able to be caught! All Pokémon can be found with held items! - every item obtainable from wild Pokémon! To fight with Jupiter already over 200 Pokémon obtainable! # LEGENDARIES All Special Event Pokémon will be obtainable! # EVOLUTION No more Trading! If you needed for example Metal Coat and trade to evolve Scyther, now you need only to level up with Metal Coat as held item - you decide when it will evolve! For Pokémon: Kadabra, Haunter and Machoke needed held items are: Mind Plate, Spooky Plate and Fist Plate - all obtainable very early in the game! Because of it the game will remain challenging! No more "move" evolutions - for those Pokémon what needed special moves to evolve - level them up in specific places like Eterna Forest. # TYPES Some Pokémon types have changed: Dratini/Dragonair - DRAGON/WATER Psyduck/Golduck - WATER/PSYCHIC Hoothoot/Noctowl - FLYING/PSYCHIC Vulpix/Ninetales - FIRE/PSYCHIC Voltorb/Electrode - ELECTRIC/STEEL #ABILITIES Some Pokémon abilities have changed Beldum/Metang - levitate Bronzor/Bronzong - only LEVITATE Dusknoir - levitate Venomoth/Dustox - levitate Magnemite evolution family abilities switched back to normal (in order to not overpower it) TO DO LIST: # NATIONAL DEX from the start (waiting for Info from Oxnite how to do it) # SPRITES Switch male Pokemon sprites to the HG/SS ones (Female will remain the same) - or the opposite (Well... I know how to do it, but it is a lot of work, so it will wait to the end) # TEXT Change the text to make you sometimes laugh Download patch: PlatinumHARDMODEv3 select xDelta GUI.exe Set patch to .patch file Set rom, to your legal untrimmed Platinium rom CREDITS Guys who created xDelta; Oxnite, who helped me a lot, please support his Platinum Deluxe version.
