    Hey everyone,

    This is my first ROM Hack ever. Its very basic at its current state, but I figured I'd share it here anyway.
    This hack will allow the HeartGold exclusives to be available in your SoulSilver game. I have also made SoulSilver's "rare" Pokemon such as Sandshrew, Caterpie, etc. as common as they are on HeartGold.
    The Pokemon will be available in the same areas they would be in HeartGold, respectively.

    Pokemon that have been added:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    This hack is perfect for people that want Pokemon from both versions, without all the bells and whistles from other hacks that are available.
    Things to expect:
    Custom Title Screen and Icon
    Kyogre available in a special location
    Latias to free roam
    Leveling Pokemon without trading (not sure if I want to implement this or not...)

    Just apply the patch to a clean copy of Pokemon SoulSilver with xdelta and you're good to go!

    Maybe you can find a way to make Stones easier to get too?

    DivineCrystal, SpiritCrystal, CrystalClear.. I've thought of them all. I ended up picking SoulCrystal for now since this is a patch for SoulSilver, afterall - and a very minor one at that.

    Well I'll gladly try out this patch of yours once you've finished adding features!

    Will you be changing the game icon as it appears in the ROM list?

    While something very minor, it is something that ads a lot of interest.

    I have been attempting to do this, but the game will not start up when I use RomeR to change the icon.

    I hope you keep this up, this is one of the better ROM hacks I've seen, and it has some unique features I've never seen anywhere else.
