    Pokémon UnovaHGSS

    Rom info:
    Hack of: Pokémon SoulSilver (USA) (HeartGold will be supported at a later date)
    Language: English
    Current Version: Alpha v1.1 (goes up to Ilex Forest)
    Last Updated: 10th April, 2012

    Summary
    UnovaHGSS is a hack of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver that integrates the new fifth generation Pokémon from Black and White into the game. The new Pokémon are not meant to replace the original 251, rather, my intention is to have them alongside the original Pokémon. Not all Pokémon will be included in this hack – very few third and fourth generation Pokémon appear. To include the Unovian Pokémon, I had to replace existing Pokémon, so most third and fourth gen Pokémon are gone. This is my first actual hack, so I’m still new at this.

    The battle sprites for the new Pokémon are placeholders, simply taken from Black/White and put into the game until I create original sprites for them. All but a few overworld sprites for the new Pokémon were created through a community endeavor over at DeviantArt; I made a few myself, notably the larger Golurk sprite. Shiny Pokémon are also fully supported, in-battle and overworld.

    Features:
    -Every Pokémon from Unova will be obtainable in this game, alongside every first and second generation Pokémon! Some third and fourth generation Pokémon also available!
    -All Unovian Pokémon will follow you around for the first time!
    -Slightly increased difficulty – stronger trainers, wild Pokémon, etc.
    -More features will be added in future versions

    Chaos Rush – for his wonderful endeavor in creating resized sprites. I’m using the Reshiram and Zekrom in the game for now - Link

    Poryhack – for pointing me in the right direction for hex editing Pokémon icon palettes (whenever I learn how, I will make a program that will make editing the icons and palettes easier than hex editing them). Also thanks to Poryhack and the Project Pokémon community for creating a list of the HGSS File system - Link

    Stratocaster - for creating a guide on how to change every aspect of a Pokémon. This hack would not have happened without it - Link

    PokeCommunity – for giving me the desire to hack Pokémon games back in 2007 when I knew even less than I do now :P

    MediaFire – for continuing its services through this stupid anti-piracy craze…

    Haha, I'm intending to release a HG/SS hack at some point in the near future, and after seeing this I might just cry. The spritework here is incredible I think, and it sounds like you know your stuff judging from how professional the first post is.

    Also, I am loving the Dragon-type Serperior reference there!

    I'll have to try this at some point, it looks excellent.

    Wow! That was something I wanted (Dray knows!) but I thought that you hacking geniuses would find a way to add 5th gen pkmns, not replace others. Anyway, great job.

    PS. Golurk is really big, nice! Do that with all the big ones if you can.

    I can make a new sprite for it, yes. I'm just using the ones on the sheet of fan sprites from DeviantArt for now (though some I've re-done, and others still need to be re-done)
    Hopefully in the future, but for right now, they only have moves from 4th gen. All the 5th gen Pokemon's movesets are as they are in Black/White, except the new moves are replaced by temporary, but similar, moves.
    I don't have any plans to include any of the Unova gym leaders as of now, but I do plan on changing every Gym leader's Pokemon. This Alpha has some new Pokemon in Falker and Bugsy's teams, I won't spoil them though. They might change sometime too. I'm not sure about the slightly heightened levels, whether or not it's too low or too high, so that may change as well.

    I made an edited PokeSav that has the new Pokemon's names correct, but I don't know if I'm allowed to release it to the public. For now, I guess just use that list in the first post to hack in whichever ones you want :P

    Thanks! :D I can't add more Pokemon in addition to the original 493, but I've added Pokemon to Trainer's rosters with no errors.
    And yep, all overworlds have their shiny colors too

    Probably, but I'm not skilled enough to pull something like that off haha


    I could do that, but I'm keeping Silver in the game. N might be somewhere else in the future though B-)

    Just wondering, did you happen to post a screenshot of this on /vp/ a few months back? I recall someone taking a screenie of something that looked pretty similar to this, with Unova Pokémon behind you and such. If it is the same one, I'd been wondering if that was ever gonna see the light of day.
