    I don't get payed for making mods, but you can help support this... lifestyle here: Donate
    CURRENT PROGRESS:
    Everything except Post Game, I'm currently quite exhausted, but by the time anyone makes it that far, it'll be completed.


    If you post a cia/these files elsewhere, please give credit by linking back to this thread.

    NOTE: ULTRA SUN/MOON RECENTLY GOT AN UPDATE, FOR NOW DO NOT UPDATE YOUR USUM OR ELSE THE GAME WILL CRASH WHEN TRYING TO BUY FROM A SHOP WHEN USING THESE ROMHACKS. I'm working on a fix.

    That's right, I'm back and this is happening. Just like last time, these hacks aim to be in the "Drayano" style, but unlike last time I took a lot of liberties. I decided to go all out, and the game is even harder than Rising Sun/Waning Moon was. To put it in perspective, the Elite Four the first time around has level 90s. However, of course you are expected to have level 90s-100s by that time.

    You shouldn't have to grind much in this romhack. To help you out in a situation where you do have to grind, I shortened the process down quite a bit by making lucky eggs purchasable.

    Much like last time, I base my romhacks off of feedback and lots of testing from people besides myself. While there were some beta testers, nobody has currently made it through the whole thing besides myself. PLEASE, give feedback. It really helps make this a more enjoyable experience for everyone.

    Changes:

    • All Pokemon (with the exception of some legendaries at the moment) are obtainable throughout the four islands.
    • Weaker Pokemon with lower Base Stat Totals have had their stats buffed to become "viable" throughout the game.
    • The following Pokemon have received type changes/modifications: Farfetch'd, Volbeat, Illusime, Noctowl, Golduck, Shinx Line, Pidove Line.
    • Many Pokemon have had their movesets either slightly changed, or revamped.
    • A majority of the Pokemon have their less impactful abilities swapped out for their Hidden ones. If a Pokemon's Hidden Ability was something quite useless, like Minus or Plus for example, they retained their original abilities.
    • Some Pokemon have new abilities they didn't previously have, such as Queenly Majesty on Vespiqueen and Nidoqueen.
    • Of course, the game is much more difficult and comes with a revamped level curve.
    • All Pokemon that previously evolved through trade now evolve through normal methods such as using the held item required or leveling up.
    • All Alolan Evolutions can now be avoided by leveling up the Pokemon with the held item instead of using it. (Example: Level up a Pikachu while holding a thunderstone for normal Raichu, while using it would result in Alolan)
    • All Evolution stones are now purchasable for convenience.
    • And of course, much more that I may have forgotten to include here!
    Instructions:
    THINGS YOU NEED:
    - Latest nightly build of luma. (Get this through the .cia updater)
    - The hack's GARC files (the stuff that actually overwrites the original assets) Get it from the Google Drive link

    Luma Game Patcher Method:

    • Navigate to SD:\luma\titles
    • Create a folder with the game's title id as the name (00040000001B5000 for Ultra Sun, 00040000001B5100 for Ultra Moon) inside titles.
    • Move the contents of the "00040000001B5100" folder inside of "GARC Files.rar" into whichever game you are using. (So move the contents into 00040000001B5000 for Ultra Sun and 00040000001B5100 for Ultra Moon)
    • Make sure "Enable Game Patching" is checked in luma3ds setup.
    • Start Ultra Sun/Moon
    Thats it! Easiest way to tell if its working is by starting a new game or checking your Trainer Passport.

    FOR POKEMON ULTRA SUN USERS: RENAME THE "3" FILE IN a\0\8\ TO "2"

    Plans for future/definitive edition:
    • Rotom Dex "Advice" is useful information about the hack, such as type changes and methods of evolution, etc.
    • Overworld model swaps/edits where needed.
    • Dialga "Mega evoltuion" into Primal Dialga. (For the final battle against me)
    • Fix up anything I might have missed

    Obviously, I am only human. I apologize for anything I may have missed, and ask that everyone reports any bugs/missed edits that they find. Huge thanks to everyone that played Rising Sun & Waxing Moon and motivated me to keep on going with this Romhack as well!

    Awesome dude really looking forward to playing this. Are you planning on posting the locations of wild Pokemon? I really enjoy that part about rom hacks. Also, I assume this to be a yes, but do all the Kahuna's/important battles have 6 mons each?

    All important battles have 6 Pokemon, except for early Gladion/Guzma ones really. And the first one or two Hau battles.

    The encounter list can be found within the downloads/instructions

    The game code for Ultra Sun is incorrect. The code given is for Sun. Ultra Sun is 00040000001B5000 iirc

    Thank you, will update now. I couldn't find the title id anywhere and I got Ultra Moon so I couldn't find it out.

    One more thing, is it possible for you to hide what pokemon a trainer is switching into in switch mode like Dio Vento does in his hacks?

    Something I noticed: For most of the "Trade with held Item" evolutions, you now have to use that item. (e.g. use a King's Rock on Poliwhirl) But the ingame menu won't let you use a King's Rock or any of these items.

    Also at the moment you still need to trade to evolve Alolan Graveler, Pumpkaboo (all sizes) and Phantump.

    I'm sure it is a really easy edit. I could probably do it and upload it.

    No problem. I will have to dump the game myself though and then do it. Probably located in the game text so I will find it and upload the change for you once I get there.

    Is there a version without the buffs you made to certain Pokemon?

    No, but you can remove the following files to remove any type/stats/moveset changes. Some trainers will still have illegal movesets though.
    • a\0\1\3
    • a\0\1\7
    Also I've updated the game

    Changelog:
    • Executor island has encounters changed.
    • Version in trainer passport says "1.0"
    • All of the trade evolution items can now actually be used.
    • Alolan Graveler evolves into Alolan Golem at level 36.
    Also, here's a video tutorial on installation:

    Why do I have to rename the encounter file from "3" to "2?" When I edit the file myself, it is editing 2.garc, not 3.garc...

    Because Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon don't use the same encounter file, due to version exclusives etc. I made this hack off of Moon, so the file is different.
