    Hey Guys,

    You maybe know my NSMB Hack but this time I'm releasing a hack of Pokémon Diamond just because it's my favorite game of all time. I first thought of making just a difficult hack for private playing but maybe some of you are also interested in playing this (I don't force you ^^)

    General Information
    You need a Pokémon Diamond (U) ROM as base and for patching xDeltaUI.
    I started this ~11.2014

    Features
    -
    60 FPS!
    - a completely new arenasystem which isn't based on different types anymore
    - a highly increased difficulty
    - some graphical changes (new trainers)
    - updated every stats of Pokémon and attacks to Gen 6 values.
    - One new attack (Ice Ball)

    The new Arenasystem
    The Arenas aren't based on types anymore. Instead of that the Gym Leaders use special Pokémon which have got special Characteristics. For example the second Gym Leader uses Pokémon with a high Spec. Attack value, the 6th Badge is specialized on "pretty" Pokémon like Milotic.
    This reduces the predictability of the gyms and makes them harder.

    Screenshots
    Some trainers and Ice Ball in action

    This is interesting , it's hard to see mods of DS (well I know It's hard to find stuff to help... I'm having a bad time waning to mod Platinum a bit :B lol)
    I want to try when I get equiped (console+ flshcard ) xD
    this 60FPS... how this works? I'm curious :v

    60 FPS is a small improvement by using a small ASM Hack. You feel the change ^^

    It's in the game so it works on both flashcard and emulator. The original game is in 30 FPS.

    It's a DS ROM, can't be used as a .CIA as of now.
