    What is Pokemon RocketRed all about?

    Pokemon RocketRed is a hack of Pokemon FireRed. Pokemon RocketRed will allow you to play in the Kanto region as a Team Rocket Grunt working for Giovanni. What's different about this Team Rocket hack compared to other Team Rocket hacks is this will be more original and that it still gives you the same options and realism that you would get in a real Pokemon game.

    Pokemon RocketRed is based 4 years after the events of Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen. Team Rocket have taken over Pallet Town and most of Kanto. Your job is to continue the Team Rock invasion in Kanto. It's not going to be easy, you'll be up against people like Red (Ash), Green (Gary), May, Brendan and many more good guys!

    As I continue the hack, I will add more and more story information. I hope everyone enjoys the hack. [​IMG]

    Here is a gameplay video of most of what has been done so far (I notice the few spelling errors in the game, they have already been fixed). Also this video is a little outdated now. If anyone would like to make a new gameplay video of the playing Pokemon RocketRed, that would be great.



    Here are some of the latest gameplay images:

    What needs to be done:

    What still needs to be done in Pallet Town:
    - Change trainer card sprite.

    What still needs to be done in Route 1:
    - Change Female main character's battle back-sprite

    What still needs to be done in Viridian City:
    ALOT!!! (I'll add things here when the list shortens)

    The Place? Perth... Warn: BIG.
    Interesting. But it would be cooler if it was based off more current pokemon games.

    Yeah, it would be. But I'm so comfortable with hacking GBA games, and I personally have not much experience with hacking NDS Pokemon games yet.

    I've uploaded a mini-demo where you can walk around and do what you want in Pallet Town. It would be great if anyone could pickup any bugs or something unordinary and tell me [​IMG]

    I'm still not sure yet. I'm just slowly making it up step by step, and if the hack somehow allows me to let you steal Pokemon, I'll try [​IMG]

    Maybe you could make certain pokemon that you are supposed to steal come up like a wild pokemon, so you are able to use a pokeball on them. Also, the one girl by the sign is nice scripting- I'll be watching this hack [​IMG]

    Just to the end of Pallet Town. I've still got a few little things to do and then I will continue onto route 1. Where I plan to have Pokemon like Koffing, Ekans, Meowth and Ratatta catchable.

    Hey I just played through and I like it a lot. I suggest making the rocket character Jesse and James from the shows. I think it would be more interesting because there are a lot of Sprites. Just an idea though.Well good luck with the rest.

    The only thing that bugs me right now is the name. "RocketRed" is pretty phallic. [​IMG]

    Maybe Pokemon Red: Team Rocket Edition instead, or something...anything... [​IMG]

    I've thought about adding Jesse and James as main characters, but I thought that would remove alot of th plans I have for the game. It would be quite weird if Jesse and James starting beating good guys LOL

    I think it's better to keep it as playing as Grunts, as that allows for better story telling and makes all-round sense through the game.

    Also, if you didn't notice while playing the demo, Giovanni refers to Jesse and James to your friend in Oaks lab. You remember when Giovanni says, "You remind me of two people I know" (Who do you think Giovanni was talking about?).

    I think that name has already been used before. What's so bad about Pokemon RocketRed? It's kind of in honour of using Pokemon FireRed as a hack.

    If other's here think there should be a name change, I'd love to hear some suggetions [​IMG]
