    Pokemon Celestial Sun and Moon are working in progress games, designed to be greater difficulty whilst having a changed experience with your Pokemon like ever before. Pokemon who the community believes to be underpowered or underwhelming have been edited to satisfy trainers who are up for the experience.

    Currently, Pokemon edits have been completed, and up to the Pokemon Trainers' School have had their wild encounters and trainers edited too. I am currently doing this alone, and I am still currently okay completing the game alone; however bug testing and other tests in the game are impossible for me to do alone. Therefore, I wish for some companions to help me along the way. Further help may also be wanted further along the line also. I am currently fully committed to this project, and would wish for the help for people with the same ambition as I. If you are interested, please either leave a reply or join a dedicated Discord server. (Information below)​



    Further notes:​
    • The game should preferably be completed by September​
    • Anyone who would like to help should preferably be in the BST time zone​
    • I am a teenage student (to some that may be a problem)​
    • [Edit] No prior knowledge of Beta testing is necessary, just the ability to be able to use PK3DS​

    Don't we already have a few of these difficulty-patch hacks?

    Gambia, The
    one i think, but one that is literal overkill with limiting your income and making revives unaffordable and such.

    however, i've also been curious what the endgoal of the romhack was. making weaker pokemon stronger was always an ok addition. but i dont want to be locked in on a team halfway through the game because switching stuff out becomes unreasonable in an 'everyone gets L100 pokemon environment'

    its been a very long time since I've got to play a pokemon game that just adds a little bit of a challenge without forcing you to play a very specific way or forcing long grind and ev-sessions on the player

    hey I'd love to help out, but I was wondering how the hack was being packaged. an update .cia? or the edited game rom itself?

    So what makes your ROM hack different from just a randomized game? I'm genuinely curious because it's boring seeing difficulty/randomization hacks with nothing else personal about it. Anyone who can dump a ROM and has PK3DS can do the same thing and adjust the levels to their own liking. There was nothing in the OP about editing the story, or textures, or models or music, trainer locations, etc....

    I know ROM hacks can be really time consuming and a bit of a challenge sometimes as I've made them myself. Not to mention there is only so much you can do with what's available, but I think if you want to garner interest on your hack you should try to make it stand out. :D
