Romhacker backports Grand Underground from Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl into Pokemon Platinum


When it comes to major differences between the original release of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and their remakes, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, they're few and far between. One such difference is the Grand Underground, a new feature that adds areas full of wild Pokemon that you can catch while underground. However, someone has taken that new addition and brought it back in time to the old games; a Japanese romhacker by the name of Tsukimi7270 posted a video to Twitter showing off their version of the Grand Underground, in Pokemon Platinum. Much like the remakes, in the romhack, there's a lava area underground, and wild encounters with a Magcargo, Houndoom, and even Groudon. The user also has a YouTube channel, full of all sorts of other rom edits to Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum that showcase newer-gen Pokemon added, odd boundary breaks, and custom encounters.

I wouldn't call it a romhack, it's still work in progress from the footage (if that's what he/she accomplished so far).. Too bad Nintendo is merciless with these kind of stuff, and even more so if this person is based in Japan (RIP).

As far as I know, this is not a rom hack that will be released at some point, but rather some custom modifications that Tsukimi (that's the hacker's name, btw) like to do as mere concepts.
So, while the term romhacker is correct, showcasing this as news that already are hyping people into thinking a rom hack is on the works and will be released eventually, is not. Careful there.
I am DEVASTATED :(

In other news nintendo has filed a lawsuit against Tsukimi7270. A c&d was served and being Japanese he maybe charged with other things (cheating, cheating, cheat...bla bla bla.) Im sure a lot of shit will get thrown. Awesome work though but im afraid it may never reach daylight. Should of waited to announce it till it was ready to release.
This isn't a mod they plan to release, all it is is a mere concept of what can be

Agree. While it's a cool concept, it's nothing an enthusiast romhacker can't achieve in a few hours of modding. No idea why so much repercussion about it, must be really slow days.

Mostly because the remakes suck. They literally put more effort in Heart Gold and Soul Silver, two games remakes FROM TWO CONSOLE GENERATIONS AGO that in this.
