Changelog – English Version


This will likely be the final update. If any minor bugs are found, I may correct them, but I do not plan on putting much more work into this hack.

  • Added Hisuian Typhlosion, Decidueye, and Samurott, evolve from 2nd stage using Link Cable.
  • Added Archeludon, Evolve from Duraludon using Link Cable.
  • Added Dipplin and Hydrapple, evolves from Applin via level up at level 30 and 44 respectively.
  • Split evolution regionals like Exeggcute, Cubone, Koffing, and Mime Jr. evolve into their kanto forms by default. Use a link cable to evolve to Alolan/Galar form, or use an ice stone on Mime Jr. for ice type Mr. Mime.
  • Added new Wild Area water spawns (fishing and surfing) to Wild Area 1 (near Motostoke Station), Wild Area 6 (Ice), Wild Area 8 (Dragon).
  • Minor text corrections, and various translations.
  • Credit to thedarkdragon11 on pokecommunity for Hisuian sprites, Archeludon, and Dipplin.
  • Credit to DegelAlex on deviantart for the basis of the Hydrapple back sprite, and https://twitter.com/EBaruON on twitter/X for the basis for the Hydrapple Front sprite.
  • I did modify the Hydrapple sprite myself to properly downsize it to 64×64 for use in this rom.

Old save files will be compatible as always. I will leave the previous version up (v2.3) as I want to ensure people have a working download in case I broke anything with this patch.
