    Hello everyone! This is a work-in-progress Pokemon Platinum hack (made by me and my friend, Omochikaeri9000) with Dawn being replaced by Rena from the anime 'Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni', and the rival being replaced by L Lawliet from 'Death Note' and Lucas replaced by Edward from 'Full Metal Alchemist' amongst other custom things and custom storyline elements. This is just a beta at the moment, and it still requires fine-tuning.

    Sadly, there is not a beta rom out at the moment. We still haven't finished applying all of the Ed Overworld sprites, and we still need a scripter etc to change the title screen text, in game text+names, and the places certain Pokemon appear. If anyone is interested in taking up this role or at least telling me what to do and teaching me, then please by all means PM me.

    Well, even though there isn't a rom yet, without further ado, I shall introduce our hack and its specifications!

    <div align="center"><u><b>~:Hack Name:~</b></u>
    Pokemon Parallel Platinum

    <u><b>~:Hack Of...:~</b></u>
    Pokemon Platinum (US Version)

    <u><b>~:General Information:~</b></u>
    Authors: Ben232 (myself) and Omochikaeri9000.
    Language: English for now in the first beta, eventually other languages if we decide to.
    Date Started: 7th August, 2009.

    Set in Sinnoh 3 years after the events of Pokemon Platinum. Giratina, Dialga and Palkia's mishaps in Platinum have caused several worlds to collide in such a fashion that many characters from many universes ended up in Sinnoh, with one particular man planning to abuse this mistake by utilising Pokemon and the Giratina from 3 years ago to banish all evil people on the planet into the Reverse World, where they will never return, in order to create a world of peace. That man is Light Yagami; Leader of Team Kira.

    Play as either Edward Elric or Rena Ryuuguu and battle against these menaces, meeting many new and familiar faces along the way, all in an attempt to find a way to return to their old universes and capture every Pokemon on the way!

    <b>~:Includes customised Pokemon like the elusive Armoured Mewtwo, Shadow Lugia and the cute Notched Ear Pichu, amongst many others!:~</b>

    ~The Elite Four is now a certain Quad Band from a certain Ranger game. Hint Hint.~

    Eventually, when we get a scripter, ALL Pokemon will be catchable, so no need to worry about that.</div>

    Well, I guess that was quite ignorant of him.

    Anyways, I must continue making Ed's sprites. Only then when they're in the game can I release the rom. Speaking of which, I cannot directly link to Megaupload with the rom uploaded there, can I? I have to make a patch, no? x_x'' This could be problematic.

    Pretty soon, no doubt. Give it about a week or so. Me and Omochikaeri are working ourselves hard to get the first beta out.

    Omochikaeri is also working on adding in a 494th Pokemon, which when encountered in the wild is actually an egg. We're going to change it into 'Kenta-kun', the estranged doll from Higurashi no naku koro ni that Rena wants to take home. If it fails, then we'll just leave it.

    Phoenix Wright is also the new professor, taking on the role from after his time as a Lawyer.

    I'm not going to leave many characters untouched. I'm going to remake the Champion too, because Cynthia got warped into the Bleach Universe where she was promptly godstomped.

    The only character confirmed to stay the same is Handsome, because Handsome is just too epic to change.

    You will be pleased to know that Ed is almost done.

    Here are the specifications of the first Demo: (Do not expect anything big).

    ~Complete Rena Overworld Sprites
    ~Complete Edward Overworld Sprites
    ~Cyrus into Light
    ~Rival into L
    ~Inclusion of Notched Ear Pichu, Shadow Lugia, Armoured Mewtwo, Female 'Pink' Butterfree variation, HG SS Gyarados sprite, HG SS Johto Starter sprites, Squirtle with Shades, and many others. Find them all!
    ~New Battle Music
    ~New Lake Music

    As you can see, the first demo only has graphical changes. We still need a scripter to change the text in-game and names etc. I hope you all aren't too annoyed with this. ^^'' But I do want you to notify me of any graphical glitches.

    Also, the in-battle sprites aren't edited yet. We still need to find a way to edit that .NARC file successfully, so that will be in a future update. So Rena will still appear as Dawn etc.

    I do hope you'll enjoy this beta. Any previous Save Files will work too, but I recommend making a new one.

    Isn't there a possible way that L can be playable?

    Not really, sadly. That means we'd have to spend hours spriting everything L does and release a completely separate version which is too much hassle on our part.
