Description

Pokémon SV+ is a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet complete overhaul mod that aims to provide a more challenging Vanilla+ style experience. Includes QOL changes, full trainer overhaul, new post game, all unobtainable pokemon re-added, Pokedex restoration, improved map, and much more. Also features SV+ patches, which can extend and transform the game in (sometimes radically) different ways.

With this mod, you will be able to catch every single Pokemon in the Paldean Pokedex and all variations for the first time!

Works with both 1.0.1 and 1.1.0, on your Nintendo Switch console or on emulator, and can be added halfway through playing or for a brand new playthrough.

Title screen and thumbnails were created with art by baku-inu and used with permission -- to see more, check them out on pixiv.
End credits song created by Zebra And The Bandit -- to see more, check out their Youtube channel


Note: Only connect to other Pokemon SV+ or Pokemon Compass players while you are using this mod. Do not use otherwise unobtainable items or Pokemon from SV+ online in any way or you may be banned.

Note 2: Save frequently and keep backup saves. This mod was thoroughly tested, but we are a small team and the base game is already notorious for crashing.

Note 3: SV+ DOES NOT INCLUDE THE ACTUAL GAME. You will still need to buy your own copy.

Features
1. Post Game+

All 5 star raids have been replaced with 50+ currently unobtainable Legendary/Mythical Pokémon as well as opposite version Paradox Pokémon
This large scale mod will be the base of Pokemon SV+ and aims to recreate the feel of Hoopa portals from OR/AS and increase
playability post-game.

Legendaries will battle you at level 85, but will be level 70 when caught. They will be tough, so don't show up underprepared! Each Legendary will be holding its special item (such as Griseous Core for Giratina) when applicable.

2. Trainer Overhaul
All trainers and static event Pokemon have had their levels increased by 40%.

  • This change is meant to make the game more challenging while keeping the original difficulty curve and progression order intact

3. Alternate Evolutions
Adds alternate method for trade evolutions, Hisuian Pokémon, and Espeon/Umbreon/Sylveon

  • Also allows Spewpas to evolve into any patterned Vivillon, and adds new evolution items for purchase at Delibird Presents.

  • Level Up Holding Destiny Knot
Haunter-->Gengar:
  • Use Dusk Stone

Eeveelutions
Espeon/Umbreon/Sylveon
  • Use Dawn/Dusk/Moon stone

Notes: Evolution Stones require a minimum of 3 Victory Road Gym badges to purchase. Auspicious Armor, Malicious Armor, Galarica Cuff, Galarica Wreath, and Strange Mirror require a minimum of 4 Victory Road Gym badges to purchase.

4. Expanded Wild Pokemon OR No Version Exclusives
Re-adds all wild Pokémon that normally spawn exclusively in one version. Also adds 50+ HOME transferrable Pokémon to the wild, including regional forms and the various starters. Full description below.
Warning: This part of the mod creates many illegal Pokemon that should not be used online. To remove it and only allow Paldean native Pokemon to spawn, download alternate_pokedata_array.zip and paste its contents into the world folder of SV+.

This will replace the original SV+ pokedata_array.bin located at the world\data\encount\pokedata\pokedata with the alternate, and can be done at any time -- either before or after combining mods with Trinity.

Future Features
More Trainer Improvements
More Raid improvements
Lots more



SV+ Patches
Since Pokemon SV+ is meant to be a Vanilla+ mod, many changes that could be fun to add don't fit into the main download. SV+ patches fix this problem by extending the mod in many -- sometimes radically -- different ways.

Want your own mod listed here? Contact me on Discord and I will share the files you'll need to make it compatible with SV+


1. Instant Eggs
  • Makes eggs spawn instantly while picknicking. To use, download the Trinity Version of Instant Eggs During Picnic then drop the ZIP contents into the SV+ romfs.
Download Link (Instant Eggs)


2. Faster Player Speed
  • This patch increases player speed beyond what is included in this mod.
  • To use, download any Trinity version of Run Speed and Slope Tolerance then drop the ZIP contents into the SV+ romfs.
Download Link (Faster Player Speed)


3. Stronger Eeveelutions
Created by Likara, Stronger Eevelutions vastly increases the stats of Eevee and all its evolutions.
  • Eevee itself has a BST of 570, while its evolutions have a BST of 670! This puts them at the same BST as Legends.
  • This also makes Eevee itself viable to use without evolving. Each one, including Eevee, has also gained an extra move at level 60, in line with its typing.
  • To see all changes made, see their mod description

Note: Must be combined with SV+ using Trinity Mod Loader -- make sure you use the version listed as compatible with SV+!
Download Link (Stronger Eeveelutions)

4. Shiny Wild Pokemon Indicator
Adds glowing eyes to all shiny Pokemon that can be seen from afar so you never miss another shiny during a hunt.
  • Especially useful for shiny Pokemon with only subtle changes like Pikachu.
  • This change will be active as long as you have the mod installed, even for Pokemon in your party. So unless you love the laser-eyes look, you will have to uninstall/reinstall this mod in between shiny hunts.

Note: Must be combined with SV+ using Trinity Mod Loader (tutorial link in Installation Instructions)
Download Link (Shiny Wild Pokemon Indicator)
More patches coming soon!



Installation Instructions (Standalone)
Note: For Scarlet, replace 01008F6008C5E000 with 0100A3D008C5C000

Installation on Switch
Copy romFS folder into sdcard:
\atmosphere\contents\01008F6008C5E000\

Installation on Emulator
Step 1.
Open the emulator.
Step 2. Right click on the game, select "Open Mod Directory" (Ryujinx) or "Open Mod Data Location" (Yuzu) and a folder will open.
Step 3. Create a new folder in the directory you opened in Step 2 and name it SVPlus (or whatever you want). Then, place the romFS folder into the new folder you created. Your final directory path should look like this:
\...\01008F6008C5E000\SVPlus\romfs

Installation Instructions (Trinity Version)
If you want to combine SV+ with other mods, download the trinity version and follow these tutorials.

Link to Written Version




FAQ
Some home-exclusive Pokemon get stuck when evolving
  • This is can be fixed by restarting the game and trying the evolution again.
Houses/Trees/Pokémon do not appear, or have graphical glitches
  • This is a Yuzu issue. To fix it, go to the advanced tab then gpu accuracy (or click the lower left corner where it says "gpu normal") and change the setting to "GPU high". Or better yet, switch to Ryujinx or Switch hardware.
When will the next update be released?
  • I don't have a fixed update schedule, but I am constantly working on something and release anything I find as soon as I can. To get notified of any changes, join us on Discord or check back here.
Can you add X feature to SV+ in a future update?
  • Probably! I always consider every suggestion, and as you can see from my update log, lots of user recommendations make it in. Come by my Discord and let me know what you'd like to see added!
Can you help me with a technical issue to do with installing or creating a new mod?
  • For sure! The best way to reach me is on Discord, I am usually around and if not we have a great community who is always willing to help :)

I have a couple of questions:
does this mod not change the original story of the game, right?
I can use the game in any language without any problem?

It does not.

Any language works, but for anything I've changed I only translated into English, Spanish, French and German

Niiiiiccceee! I didn't think we'd see mods so soon. Time to boot up Ryujinx!
Question: will this mod affect current saves or is it best to do a fresh install?
I've only gotten to my house currently, haven't talked to anyone yet.

Sorry for being noob with all these changes but can someone tell me the main difference of SV+ to Compass? Is SV+ meant to be more difficult?

They were both designed with a different goal.

SV+ is meant to be vanilla enhanced, so progression order and the original balance curve is preserved, all cut content is re-added and a it includes a bunch of QOL.

Compass also has all cut content and has similar QOL and improvements, just implemented differently. But the main difference is that Compass is a whole new experience, with redesigned trainers and a new progression path.

So basically you play SV+ when you want the original game, but better. You play Compass if you want something entirely new.

For difficulty, Compass is probably harder since lots of trainers were given specific strategies and more Pokemon than they had in Vanilla. Neither is meant to be a difficulty mod though.

Is there an update for it to work on 1.2.0? The game hangs on the initial loading screen.

Anyone else have an issue where Walking Wake and Iron Leaves are Electric types? I added them through PKHEX. Without the mod on they're their proper typings. Same issue with that other Pokemon Compass mod.

edit:
I'm guessing it's like Compass where the proper 1.2.0 data for those pokemon aren't quite implemented in the mod yet. I await an update, then. Liking the mod so far, I've tried both and can't decide which is better.
