    Current Version : v0.2
    Versions 0.1 to 0.1D currently cause a crash when encountering a wild pokemon at wela volcano park.
    The second Phyco battle may bug out on his last Pokemon.

    Please get the v0.2. It is the most stable version of the mod with tons of new additions.

    Download Links:
    For now, if anyone's still trying to play, you can get the COMPLETE POKEMON STAR ROM at that certain iso site -snip-.
    Or google it. There's multiple sites that are already posting their own links for the rom.
    Or contact this anonymous haxxer at discord (rusyaas#4065), or gmail pokemonstarmod@gmail.com
    Or don't play this shitty mod.

    Useful Resources:
    Wild Pokemon Location :
    [v0.2] [v0.1D - v0.1E] [v0.1C]
    Pokemon Evolution List : [v0.2] [v0.1D - v0.1E] [v0.1C]
    Pokemon Stat : [v0.2] [v0.1D - v0.1E]
    Pokemon Movesets : [v0.2]

    Explore the all new Alola, now filled with Ultra Beasts and more mysteries!
    Your partner this time is none other than the sweet little Lillie and the other Aether members,
    who return from Kanto after a failed attempt at restoring Lusamine back to her normal self.

    Lillie's starter will be the one that has a type advantage over yours, a-la classic rival style.
    Her parties include Starter, Alolan Vulpix, Zeraora, (Wishiwashi/Bounsweet/Salandit), an Ultra Beast and Nebby.

    Zeraora, Marshadow, UBs and many other NEW POKEMON such as Alolan Voltorb and Machamp are now available in the wild.
    The mythicals now have similar stats to those of a regular Pokemon, making them not OP for regular playthrough.
    All gen1-6 starters are now available at Route 1. While their second evos are available outside of Po Town.
    Almost all regular Pokemon are available in the wild. And some of them, for example,
    Combee, Cherubi and Wimpod, now have better movesets and stats. Oh, Cherubi is now a Grass/Fire type too.

    If you'd like to know which Pokemon are added, changed, or completely removed, see list below:


    By recreating the extreme condition in the Ultra Spaces, you can force certain Pokemon to evolve into Ultra Beasts!
    These requirements are gradually informed to you as you progress through the mod, mostly by Gladion.
    These Pokemon have their unique regular abilities while having Beast Boost as their HA.
    Only Totem Beasts, Poipole and Naganadel still have Beast Boost as their regular abilities.

    Also, all Pokemons who require trades or held items to evolve now evolve mostly via level ups!
    Eeevee evolves into Spookeon when levelling up while learning Shadow Ball
    v0.1D+ (learnt at lv25,35 and 45).
    Eeevee evolves into Splatooneon when levelling up while learning Octazooka
    v0.1D+ (learnt at lv25,35 and 45).
    Update: I'm an idiot. Eevee doesnt learn these in some versions. Just catch them in the wild.
    Feeding Ultra Malasada to certain Pokemon will evolve it into its Totem form.
    Also Carbink can now evolve into Diancie.

    It's not possible to evolve
    Eevee into Spookeon or Splatooneon
    Rockruff to Ice Lycanroc
    naturally prior to v0.1D. My mistake.
    Feeding an Ultra Malasada to your starter will evolve it into its Ultra Form, which has different stat spreads, movesets and abilities.
    Decidueye, Incineroar, and Primarina have FIVE different Ultra Forms each, which can be accesed by levelling up
    while holding an Ultra Malasada or Beast Ball during daytime and nighttime.
    You can simply change it back into its regular form by feeding it another Ultra Malasada.

    P/S: This is a feature from Trendy Sun and Moon series.

    Pikachu Valley? How about Lilliechan Valley? Sugoi onee-chan!
    Check the trailer and see if you can find the rare Lollie-chan!

    Many new trainers join the fight!
    Kunoichi - A ninja class trainer
    Kartenvoy - The guy from Ultra Forest
    Spooky girl - Acerola with Emoji overdose
    Shadow boy - A shadow trainer
    Super Saiyan - Lysandre with yellow / red / blue hair and orange gi
    Ultra Instinct - Lysandre with black hair and orange gi
    Scratch Cat Girl - Elio/Selene's mom who returns to Alola to spread her cat facts
    Captain David - Steel-type expert who is a good friend of Kiawe
    Captain Raika - Ryuki's sister who is also from a faraway region. A Zeraora expert.
    Aether Wicke - The Pokemon Professor this time
    Kahuna Moon - A kahuna from an alternate Alola. Title Defense only.

    Most trainers who used to have one Pokemon now have two. TWO! Wow!
    Route Leaders are now replaced with Cynthia, who has different niche at each route.
    Captains, Kahunas, and Elite Fours now have Ultra Beasts.


    Totem Pokemon are now replaced with Totem Beasts - Ultra-sized Ultra Beasts!
    And so Alola needs Ultra Captains for these TBs.

    Bug Captain Guzma (Pheromosa), Poison Captain Plumeria (Nihilego),
    Steel Captain David (Celesteela) and Electric Captain Raika (Xurkitree)
    await your challenge!

    Two of the eight Alola gyms are ready for you to challenge.
    Kahili Gym in Malie and Skull Gym in Po Town!
    The Pokemon Center is livelier than ever with the cute Poipole selling stuff
    and the Skull grunt spouting mixtapes at the all new Skull Cafe.


    The infamous Kukui Uber Ride makes an upgrade in this mod!
    Professor Kukui now integrates the all new Uber Ride in Alola. As silly as it sounds,
    the Ultra Recon Captain Phyco seems really interested with the idea...

    Uber Rides are listed below:
    Tauros -> Kukui
    Stoutland -> Hala
    Lapras -> Lana
    v.01C /Naganadel v0.1D+
    Charizard -> Celesteela
    Mudsdale -> Spinda
    v0.1C/The Royal v0.1D+
    Sharpedo -> Guzma
    Machamp -> Charizard

    Some of 'em just look janky, might replace them in the future.

    Lillie managed to put Lusamine in Bill's seperation machine in Kanto.
    Lusamine and Nihilego were seperated, but not in the way she expected.
    Lusamine now only has a portion of her body - she is now a Mini Lusamine!
    And apparently suffers from amnesia...
    Nihilego now has Lusamine's body, contained at the Aether Paradise.

    Travel with Lillie and help recover Lusamine to her old self!
    Meanwhile, Nihilego might have a plan of her own...

    Ultra Recon Squad now serves as villains, replacing Team Skull for most of the parts.
    Their mission is to capture all the Ultra Beasts that have been released into Alola.

    Regular Dulse and Soliera are the grunts.
    Commander Soliera - Leads the Sol squad. Bashful. New Fire-type Expert.
    Commander Dulse - Leads the Luna squad. Calm and collected. Ice-type Expert.
    Commander Zossie - The cheery commander who just dilly dallies around. UB expert.
    Captain Phyco - A strict captain who would do anything to achieve his goal. Furfrou + UB expert.

    In this mod, Necrozma is the first island guardian - the Guardian of Light.
    As an evil approaches, the fate of the world lies in the hands of Nebby and Lusamine's Solgaleo.
    You must travel to a secret Ultra Space - Ruins of Light, and go through Necrozma's trial.
    Use Necrozma's light to power up your Nebby and Solgaleo!

    As you progress through the game, you'll meet a peculiar duo who are trying to figure out their true origins.
    They call themselves Fallers, and you agree to help their cause.
    In return, Looker will give you Totem Beast/AZ-Floette at Heahea Beach.
    Meanwhile, Anabel will trade some Legendary Pokemon at certain locations.

    Stop the Ultra Recon Squad and figure out their true identities!

    A lot of them have been modified. E4 levels remain unchanged. Some Title Defense Pokemon have different level Spoilers below:


    Thanks to everyone who tried or attempted to try the mod, and manage to bear through all the shitty dialogues and poor optimization.
    I will link the people / streamers social media so that you may watch the gameplay and follow them.

    NEW3DSSUCHTI [TWITTER] // RAYi19 (Uber Ride and Evolution showcase) [YOUTUBE] // OCTOLINGRIFT [YOUTUBE]


    As a token of appreciation for the people who watched my videos, I have put some of you as NPC's name.
    For example, Trainiax and New3DsSuchti names are used for Ultra Recon Grunts.

    If you'd like your name be applied into this mod, just let me know.
    No one is gonna play it anyway LUL.

    Screenshots and more coming soon. I'm tired. Who even plays Pokemon mod lol

    Save Files only : [MEGA]

    Pokemon Star is made using Pokemon Ultra Moon as its base!
    Meant to be used with CITRA emulator for full experience.
    This download contains edited GARCS, music, SAVE FILES, installation notes and some icons if you wanna make your own banner.
    Just copy paste the ExtractedRomFS folder. I unpacked and repacked everything using HackingToolkit3DS. Might not work with 3DSBuilder and GodMode9.
    If you dont know what youre doing, seek the tutorials around gbatemp.

    A083 garc will crash the game. So dont copy paste it. But in doing so you will not see edited overworld models, environment, and wild pokemon encounter.

    Rename the a083 garc to a082
    This mod is using Ultra Moon as base, and version-exclusive cutscenes/dialogues/npcs are not fully edited/supported.


    Alola Photo Club and Pokemon League / Hall of Fame will crash the game on some Citra builds. When you get to this part, do either of these three methods:
    1) Get an unofficial build of Citra, which people like to call, Chinese build Citra
    2) Use the save files provided to skip the Alola Photo Club part.
    3) Using PKHeX, edit the save file, edit flag 470, change the value from 8600 to 8700
    (for Alola Photo Club)


    Encountering a wild Pokemon at Wela Volcano, and battling Phyco at Ruins fo Light will crash the game in all versions prior to v0.1E.
    Please download the v0.1E patch.

    Sorry for the bugs! Preasu understand!

    v0.2 Changelog:

    Past Changelogs:
    1. How far does this mod cover?

    It covers almost all the story/trainers/battles until vs champion and title defense.
    Postgame UB-catching, Rainbow Rocket, Battle Tree/Royal/Agency remain unchanged.
    There are plans to turn them into Smogon-tier facility, but unlikely for now.

    Some sidequests have been changed too. For example, The Vulpix and Team Skull sidequest
    is now replaced with Litten and Scratch Cat Lady.

    I might have forgotten to fully mod some trainers and dialogues.
    Please inform me if you find any errors during your regular playthrough.

    2. Console users cant really use the a083 garc? No workaround?

    Yep. A083 garc just crashes on console. No workaround that I know of.

    3. Hey, this [particular area] is super laggy on Citra.

    Cant do nothing. Its just how emulator and cpus / gpus work.

    4. Hey, can I do anything to improve this mod?

    Why thanks, random stranger. Just inform any error you find or suggest a better dialogue that you have in mind.I also need
    >Mixtape lyrics for the Skull Cafe. Just two lines long.
    >A feed on top of Poipole Mart, so each PMC has different feed.
    >The picture on the floor of PMC. Different pic for each PMC.

    5. There's yellow rays of lights on my screen! What do?

    Change the resolution or swap screens in Citra's settings. That should fix it.

    5. My Eevee doesnt learn Octazooka or Shadow Ball what to do?

    I'm an idiot. Just pkhex the moves or catch them in the wild sorry.

    It's basically useless on console as most edits can't be used.

    Will this be available as a pre-patched CIA on "that ISO site?"​

    Ooh! I was talking about this with friend just today, and the lack of mods for the newer releases aside from harder modifications. Cool!

    From hauoli all the way up to that last battle at poni, except po town. Just a shitty mod dont think too much bout it.

    Probably. Eventually.
    Yes this is true. If some random passerby is reading this comment, consoles definitely cant use the modded a083 / a082 garc. But everything else probably work. Who knows. Who even play pokemon mods lul

    Quite a lot of significant changes based on the trailer, a shame you can't experience the full mod on actual hardware.

    i am so new to this...

    anyway, i since i don't know a single thing about how i'm supposed to get the .7z download to work (i unzipped it, then what???)
    wondering if when it's up as a pre-patched CIA on that "ISO site" that was mentioned in another person's post if you could send me the link because i'm only good with GBA roms and such...
    also wanna do a nuzlocke on my YT channel so yeah :L

    This looks really promising to me. It looks like this was developed with an idea in mind, the idea was set out to be fulfilled, and the dev happened to be new to this and laughed themself to death with things like Lillie Valley while learning the tools
    Good luck ^^

    Maybe it would be playable if we use ntr cfw mode 3
