    Pokémon Let's Go!
    Polished Pikachu & Enhanced Eevee
    Dio Vento

    Hi everybody! Dio Vento here to drop off my finished difficulty hack for Pokémon Let's Go! These hacks are much less in-depth than my previous work, but should provide a solid challenge and overall improved experience as you play through Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee.
    Unlike my usual ROM hacking work, these have not been rigorously beta tested. Please point out any move or Pokémon mismatches! This is my first-ever hack done entirely in raw hex instead of through a tool like Kaphotics' PK3DS.
    While my previous hacks are known for being tough as nails even by ROM hack standards, this hack targets a balance closer to Game Freak's official Black/White 2 Challenge Mode. I hope you enjoy it!
    Don't worry about this setting a trend. When Gen VIII rolls around, I'm going to give it the full treatment as a sequel to my Supernova Sun and Penumbra Moon.


    All information and files for this project, as well as my other standalone Let's Go mods, can be found on my WordPress.


    11/19 and early 11/20 builds erroneously set the archive flag on the TITLEID folder, causing any mods inside to fail to load. If you installed that version, you need to DELETE the "atmosphere/titles/010003F003A34000" and "atmosphere/titles/0100187003A36000" folders entirely from your SD card to use Let's Go mods again.

    Other way around. To make a quick ROM hack, I made the features one by one and decided to release them as standalone mods.
    Also, editing 120 trainers by hand in hex took longer than creating every other mod I've made for Let's Go combined.
    And yes, this is a rushed project with much less detail and depth than my main hacks! Kinda like how Let's Go itself is a rushed project with much less detail and depth than a proper Pokémon main series game!
    I don't care about being the "first to release," that's a meaningless title (is anyone else even ROM hacking this? I know @Kobazco isn't, so who is there to "race"?). What I did care about was getting the hack complete and ready to play before Smash Bros comes out because I really cannot imagine I'll touch this game again once I can play Smash. (And I will be unhacking my Switch for Smash online anyway)

    @Dio Vento

    Thanks for creating this for the community! I was an avid follower of your earlier romhacks. I have two questions:

    Does this work with .nsp files? This might be a self-explanatory one but I'm new to the scene so I'm not sure.

    Yes it does, I convert all my games to nsp before installing.

    I have one question, what's your second question?

    Edit: OK, I have two questions. Before I had your mods installed into titles/01(...)/RomFS/Bin but the 7z skips the RomFS folder, did I just install it wrong? I'm pretty sure the move nerf was working at least.

    @Dio Vento @Dichotomy754

    Oh sorry, I was picking something up when typing my post and completely forgot about my second question. I was wondering if this works with save games. We're not editing the rom directly so presumably no? But again, the trainers were overhauled.

    They do work with pre-existing saves.

    Also, just got to the rival fight in Lavender town and can confirm the trainer changes are working on my version of ReiNX,

    i don't get it. i installed the mod two times, ejected my sd card, removed, but i keep seeing oddish on route 1. does that mean the mod is not working ? i'm using atmosphere, and used to use your older mods wich where working fine, but even starting from scratch, oddish is always there, and i see no bellsprout in route 2 (im using pikachu)

    Encounter files hadn't been building properly for Pikachu version. Re-download and try again if they hadn't been working for you.
