This thread is for my Pokemon OrAs Hacks, Rayless Ruby and Shadow Sapphire. These have been on Project Pokemon for a while, so I decided to put them here also. IGNORE THE THREAD NAME I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO CHANGE IT Rayless Ruby and Shadow Sapphire are rom hacks that I am currently developing. There are many changes to this game, including plot, wild encounters, trainer battles, and much more! NOTE: The current game only goes up to the 3rd badge, and the game will continue normally after that. I will link several tutorials to this post including how to install it on both gateway and hans, as well as updating the file without losing your save. One of the main changes of this hack is the addition of shadow pokemon. Mysterious shadows from within the region are corrupting pokemon into shadow forms, making them more hostile, and giving them slight but noticeable stat boosts. Due to this corruption, pokemon with shadow forms do not have shiny forms, and each shadow pokemon also loses its secondary typing to gain the dark, or sometimes ghost typing. Now, you may think that this is OP to have in a game. I agree, which is why the shadow pokemon will always have 1%-5% encounter chance (with the exception of treecko, torchic, and mudkip), meaning that they are very rare to find. There are a lot of evolutions that have also been changed. All of the trade evolutions have been made easier to obtain (so you don't need to trade), and a few other evolution methods have changed. I would list them, but right now they are one of the WIP parts that I'm still working on. The overall game difficulty has been increased, giving trainers higher AI's and IV increases, and giving most trainers competitive items. To give you an idea of the changed level curve, the Elite 4 will be around lvls 70-80 instead of lvls 50-60, and the 3rd gym will be at about lvl 30-35 instead of 20-25 (the reason I used the 3rd badge for an example is that it's one of the main level curves in the game). NOTE: It is recommended that once the full version (1.0.0) comes out, anyone that had previously played it play it again. There will most likely be changes to battles, some plot, as well as wild encounters. By 1.0.0 I plan to have all 721 Pokemon available without trading. Also, when you play this game, nuzlocke at your own risk. Nuzlocking is not recommended because then you wouldn't be able to see all of the shadow Pokemon that are available (Most of the Shadow Pokemon have 1-5% Encounter rates). This rom hack is made for all 3ds users, as long as you have homebrew access. There might eventually be a "pro" or "full" version for CFW only, but for now there will only be one version. Edit to this paragraph: Considering that now most people that play cfw's are either on citra, or have a 3ds with a cfw, the "pro/full" version will most likely just be incorporated into the regular game. Sorry That you've been waiting for so long! I've never gotten around to really trying to come back to working on this! I'm going to try to much more frequently (at least every day) so I can increase the frequency of these betas! Known GlitchesSome of the story text might be messed up; haven't been able to do a playthrough with the full story text yet. The DexNav will crash the game on some routes! If you want to try to use the DexNav, save before turning it on and save before entering a new route or a new part of a route! Changed Levelups may not be implemented on the version I uploaded. I haven't been able to test though so I can't verify. This will definitely be fixed by Beta 2 (soon) Downloads Warning: Spoilers inside!

To Asia81, for making a tutorial on how to dump and decrypt roms. To Kaphotics, for making pk3ds, which I used to edit encounters, trainer battles, pokemon stats/level-up/TM & Tutor moves, and the shops; and also for garctool, which I used to decompress the files within the 'a' folder in RomFS To Reisyukaku, for making ohana3ds, which I used to edit the title screen and sprites. To all of the Rom Hackers and Homebrew Developers that made these hacks possible Not going to be too pushy with this, but if you want to see my progress updates, my twitter is the best place to go(@PrimalKyurem) Also, I've been doing livestreams on my youtube channel where I work on these hacks. If you want to see them, I don't remove them after the stream is over.
