TO MODERATORS: I have read this but, due my hack is the only one made in NDS that changes all things Pokémon GBA hacks can change (maps, plot, etc., so your reason for doing that is not applicable to my hack) I have taken the liberty of post it. Oh, due this, and due months ago I asked a moderator for giving me permission for posting that, and he disregarded me (I waited for his response for weeks).


Actual version: 0.1.1
Lastest update: 2nd November, 2015​

Summary

Pokémon Light Platinum is a GBA hack launched in 2011 by the ROM hacker WesleyFG. Due to its success -partly because it was one of the few that managed to be completely finished- and that, in recent years, the NDS hacking has gained much more capabilities, I am now remaking this hack in this platform for people who have not played the GBA version yet, and partly to encourage people to start in this new platform; begin to investigate further and explore it.

Changes

Although the plot, locations, characters and other features are almost the same, there are many changes (some small, some more noticeable) with respect to the original version:

PokemonTrainer.png
There are 107 Pokémon more than in the original version. All those that appeared in the GBA version will appear in this version, these new Pokémon come from the six different generations. This leads to the Pokédex will be a little more difficult to complete, having a total of 493 Pokémon to capture from all generations.

PokemonTrainer.png
Due to these new Pokémon, now trainers have different Pokémon parties from the original game, and in the majority of cases, they will be much stronger. Similarly, the wild Pokémon will differ (although to a lesser extent) the original, with more variety in the different towns and routes and other ways to find wild Pokémon (such as honey trees, Headbutt, fishing...).

PokemonTrainer.png
Slight changes in the game's plot, although they are minor and the only reason they were made is to adapt the scripts to the capabilities of the base ROM.

PokemonTrainer.png
Fairy type inserted (with all its weaknesses and strengths). All Pokémon that in the sixth generation possess this kind, they will in the hack (Gardevoir, Sylveon...). In addition, the weaknesses and strengths of other types have also been updated to the sames they have in the sixth generation.

PokemonTrainer.png
Successfully introduced a new system of berries, that was lost in both original Light Platinum and HeartGold & SoulSilver. Now berry trees will be stationary on the different routes, and they will give one berry each day (at 00:00 everyday there are new berries on the trees which didn't have). The trees of all 64 different berries are hidden throughout the Zhery and Lauren regions, so you have to look very well to get them all.

PokemonTrainer.png
Other small changes, such as increasing the chance of finding a shiny Pokémon (from 1/8192 to 1/257), or changing the stats of some Pokémon that increase them in the sixth generation.

Scans

They will be updated every so often.

Bugs, errors and possible changes

PokemonTrainer.png
The textures of the maps, and the game generally, works quite poorly in No$GBA. This emulator is not suitable to load homebrew or hack-ROMs, so if you're using an emulator to play the hack, please, use DeSmuME.

PokemonTrainer.png
Some flashcards give problems with the game, although they are only a minority. I'm still researching why it may be happening.

PokemonTrainer.png
As in the original HeartGold and SoulSilver, the game may freeze every so often or give graphical errors when entering a map. In the latter case, just open the Pokémon menu or the Pokédex and close it to fix the error.

PokemonTrainer.png
Neither the minisprite of the female character is changed, or the texts are adapted to differentiate between male or female. Please, select the male hero for the moment.

PokemonTrainer.png
If you pay attention, in some random points on the map you will be able to hear sea waves. This is something that, for now, is beyond my knowledge and I have no idea how to solve it, but I hope to be able to fix it in the future.

This is a remake of an already existing hack. If you care about it so much, please try the original perhaps. Then of course play this when it finished if you enjoy the original.
