    Pokemon Origin Platinum V1.51 (Unofficial Patch)
    Hack developed by Lazerith
    Current Status:
    V1.4 Not Working
    Unofficial V1.51 Working


    Summary:
    Pokemon Origin Platinum is a self-contained hack of Pokemon Platinum developed by Lazerith and inspired by the hacks by Drayano. Origin Platinum features the ability to obtain all 493 Pokemon without having to do any sort of events, trading, or going underground.

    Features:
    Pokemon Origin platinum includes the following features:
    • Ability to catch all 493 Pokemon without the use of any outside source, while still being able to trade and battle with friends. Every non-legendary Pokemon can be caught before the elite four, and most added legendary Pokemon are located in post-game areas.
    • Regigigas no longer requires having the Regis pokemon to catch, but has been changed to a fateful encounter so that it may allow the player to catch the other Regis Pokemon.
    • Giratina now has Griseous orb held when you catch him. I know many people do not like the way he looks without it. I am one of those people.
    • Items such as Metal Coat, which originally were given as a held item to allow a Pokemon to evolve by trading can now be used to evolve Pokemon in the same manner as the evolution stones.
    • Pokemon that evolve by simply trading them now evolve at certain levels. Check the documents provided with the patch for more details.
    • Wurmple now evolves into Silcoon/Cascoon based on its gender.
    • Spiritomb no longer requires going underground and meeting 32 people to catch. Simply use the Odd Keystone where you normally would.
    • Once a player has caught 492 pokemon, he/she will be given the Azure Flute by one of the residents of Sandgem Town. This item is required to catch Arceus. Catching Arceus is pretty much the goal of the game.
    • Players wishing to make competitive teams using any fossil pokemon, spiritomb, or Pokemon that evolve via evolutionary items will now find that all fossils, odd keystone, and all evolution items are now sold in Veilstone Department Store.
    • Event items such as Secret Key, Membership Pass, Oak's Letter, and Azure Flute are now given to you at certain parts of the game.
    • The Super Rod is now given to you by Jasmine right after you beat the 8th gym. There are some pokemon that can only be, or are a lot more common when using the super rod. Check the Pokemon Locations document for more information.
    • The game now features a second master ball. So don't fret if you accidentally use it. However, there are still only two in the game, so still use them sparingly.
    • Many NPC's and even bookshelves, etc that used to say pointless, meaningless, and useless text have been changed to say references to various types of media such as Anime, Games, T.V. Shows, and Movies. See if you can find and understand them all. This is the one change that I have made that I didn't include a document. I figured that would ruin the fun.
    • More details on these changes are included in the documents.
    Replayability:
    With the ability to catch every Pokemon, as well as all of the included references to look for, Pokemon Origin Platinum gives players a reason to talk to everyone and examine every object.

    Footage:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Bugs:
    Several Freeze bugs occur throughout the game in the OFFICIAL patch. However, I have added a link to an UNOFFICIAL patch that was able to fix these issues.

    If you encounter any problems, please pm me or post a reply so that I can fix them as fast as possible.

    Most recent changes:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Future changes:
    After a LOOOOOOONG hiatus, I have the urge to get back into Pokemon hacking. As far as Pokemon Origin Platinum goes, I may try to implement additional bugfixes. But as far as actual content goes, Pokemon Origin Platinum is finished.

    P.S. If I do return to Pokemon Hacking, I will be working on a project I started after I finished Origin Platinum.
    Credits:
    • Drayano for walking me through what programs I needed, and how to use them. Taught me how to use hex editing for this hack, and helped me check and make balances to what wild Pokemon can be found where. Also for helping me make decisions throughout my time making this hack. Drayano's Blaze Black, Volt White, Sacred Gold, and Storm Silver were what inspired me to do this project, and without him, Origin Platinum would not exist.
    • Various friends of mine for helping me think of references to put into the game and looking for bugs.
    Tools used:
    • PPRE
    • CrystalTile2
    • TheNewPokeText
    Download links:
    The following links are where you can download the patch and documents. You will need to provide your own Pokemon Platinum rom and download xdelta to apply the patch.


    Recommendations:
    I highly recommend the following hacks developed by Drayano, who inspired me and walked me through the development process of Pokemon Origin Platinum:

    ^^I like the idea above, and even though I haven't checked out their dialogue, I would have appreciated them bringing up random subjects or speaking as a real person speaking to you IRL (in real life) for the first time. Congratulations on beginning this hack. It looks great in your original post, but I haven't started it yet to really put it under a microscope LOL, just kidding. I'm sure it will be enjoyable! B-)

    I will definitely try it. I was thinking about searching for a Platinum Hack, and since Dray helped you, I know it will be one of the best.

    :D

    As I told Dray in his hack, I would like to see Manga characters in any hack. Meaning battle against Red of Pokemon Adventure, Blue or others. It will be something fabulous and even without changing sprite, only names + Pokemon team :D

    For Standard mode, I have no plans on changing pokemon themselves other than evolutions. If you have any suggestions for changes though, please let me know what they are.

    With the harder difficulty mode(I'm not sure if I will call it "Difficult", "Hard", "Proud", "Elite", or whatever I call it), I will probably make some changes to movesets, stats, etc. Once again, if you have any suggestions, please tell me. I want to make this game as best as I can, and if feedback is only provided by the creator, nothing really changes. XD

    Thank you. Though, Dray's hacks have a bit more changes to items and pokemon than mine has, unfortunately, so I'm hoping you aren't expecting that. If I can think of any changes to make to items, then I will put those into the updates.

    As far as battles against Manga/Anime/Movie teams, it is possible. That is something I would like to see as well in future updates. I'm just not sure where exactly I would put them. I could try to make most of the post-game island be battles against people from the Manga/Anime/Movies.

    I hope you enjoy the game.

    Unfortunately, It didn't work. The game freezes when I try to go out of town (the hometown) always.
    I think maybe it has something with my R4 card. But, normally the other ROMs weren't working at all (error=-4) while this is running and freeze.

    I don't always like the item changes done by hacks in Pokemon, I like Platinum but I hated the other hacks since some of them change normal pokemon to shadow which is not acceptable to me IMO. So, I want to check this hack and then judge. :D

    Are there any changes to Gym Leader's teams etc? I wanna play this but I was thinking I should wait for the harder difficulty one.

    Hmm... I'll try to fix this asap. I'm not sure why thats happening this time around.
    Yeah I was looking for a good 493 Platinum hack too and decided I didn't necessarily like the ones I could find. So I decided to make this one. It really sucks that its so buggy.

    Standard mode is unchanged as far as trainer/gym/elite four battles go. However, the harder difficulty will take a while. I'd suggest sticking to this one and just using the save file with standard mode on the harder difficulty when it comes out. You'd just need to do a small amount of grinding so that you could be on track.

    I will also not start working on the harder difficulty until the standard game is clear of bugs and freezes

    I have reverted the game back to V1.0 and am now going back through and testing. Please do not download the patch. I will let you guys know when it is at least fixed until a certain point. I am currently doing a quick runthrough with a level 100 team to find bugs.

    I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hmm, this looks really good. I haven't seen many Pokemon Platinum hacks around for a long time. I like the idea of changing the text but you should do something that will make this hack very unique such as adding 'Red' or even being able to challenge Dawn or Lucas.

    I don't know why, but for some reason no matter how hard I try, I can not get the Cycling Road freeze to stop happening.

    This might be a while guys. But please try to bare with me.

    I have been talking to him, and even he is stumped.

    Anyways, I have uploaded the game up to the point of cycling road. Feel free to play it up to that point.

    Yeah I am having a hell of a time trying to fix it. No matter what I try, it won't work.

    I find it really odd because other than wild Pokemon, I have not touched Route 206 and Cycling Road at all.
