Note: Emerald Enhanced is currently in BETA.
At any point, anything could break for any number of reasons. If you’re not okay with this, then this may not be the game for you. Furthermore, Emerald Enhanced is meant to be very challenging from the beginning.


Litwick, Beldum, Shinx, Ralts, Venipede, Timburr and Spheal.
They have been adjusted to work as well as a starter would in a vanilla game, or better in some cases. This gives more variance to the
new game experience, since you’ll probably be using New Game +


  • Normal mode scales your EXP and Winnings to the number of gyms you have beaten. It goes up by 25% per badge (12.5 in prestige mode).
  • Easy mode is 4x base experience, for people who want to get through the game quickly, and aren’t confident enough for harder modes.
  • Nuzlocke mode is a harder variant of my game, with enforced nuzlocke rules.
  • Hardcore mode uses special rules. No pokecenters, Marts can be used but it’s more expensive.
    You gain less money and gain the default vanilla exp value. Fainted mons disappear from your party.
  • Frontier mode takes you directly into the frontier. Choose a starter team with which to challenge the frontier, and earn BP to purchase new frontier pokemon to expand your roster.

Follower System

Followers will help you in battles against the E4, Title Defense, and max-tier gym leaders when they are following you.
The current followers are all of the romanceable NPC’s and Minnie.
You can dismiss them anytime, talk with them to do so.
Each follower has a passive bonus that helps you on your adventures so that there’s more value to unlocking and using them! (new!)
Followers can sometimes get a bit misaligned, to fix it open the Start Menu and press the d-pad left. This should reset their location to behind you.

Poké Ball Changer

You can change the Poké Ball your Pokémon is currently held in by talking to the Ball Changer NPC.
She’s located in the Lilycove Department Store on the 5th Floor.
To change Balls you need to pay 10.000 Pokédollars and have at least one of the corresponding balls.

Autoscaling Trainers & Wild Encounters

On your first playthrough, everything is scaled to the number of badges you own.
On consecutive New Game Plus runs, the enemy mons will scale to the levels of your party.

Boss wild encounters!

You have a 1 in 128 chance to encounter a boss wild pokemon. They can easily be noticed as their names are bright red.
These pokemon have 31 in every IV and have their hidden ability. They get +6 to both defenses when the battle starts.

IV Perfecting

You can get an egg with perfect IVs and desired nature by utilizing the Genetic Code Mapping System.

  • You can consign up to 31 of a certain species to increase your Genetic Code Value(GCV).
  • You can use the GCV to generate an Egg of your saved species. The species you generate will have IVs equal to the GCV in each stat.
  • When you generate the pokemon, you will get to choose a nature.
  • The generated pokemon will be an Egg that you have to hatch with the moves and ability of the first mon you consigned.

Visit the Training Center in Lilycove to get started. It’s the leftmost computer in the left room.
