Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

This is a small hack of Pokemon Crystal, based on the dissasembly of Pokemon Crystal, intended to be used only for link battling. This hack offers two unique features, allowing link battles with randomly generated Pokemon teams and the additional option of letting RNG be the only one who controls each of your actions in the battle!

Features:

- Random team generator. The game will automatically generate for you a team of six random level 100 Pokemon with:
preparse_list_tag('
[*]Random moveset, with four moves randomly taken from the level, pre-evolution, breeding, and TM/HM -if chosen- learnsets[/*]
[*]Random stat experience[/*]
[*]Random DVs[/*]
[*]Random Happiness[/*]
[*]Random ID number (who cares :D)[/*]
', '*', $errors)
- Automatic input mode. This feature will allow for link battles where only the RNG will control the outcome of each turn. The chances for each button press are:
preparse_list_tag('
[*]A button: 25%[/*]
[*]B button: 25%[/*]
[*]Down: 12.5%[/*]
[*]Up: 12.5 %[/*]
[*]Left: 12.5 %[/*]
[*]Right: 12.5%[/*]
', '*', $errors)

Additionally, to speed up the process:
preparse_list_tag('
[*]The intro has been cleaned up and reasonably speed up, removing unnecessary content[/*]
[*]The starting map is the second floor of the Pokemon Center[/*]
[*]The battle room will be available from the very beggining of the game.[/*]
[*]The ITEM and RUN options in link battles have been removed in order to make auto input link battles viable.[/*]
', '*', $errors)

To generate a random team with no restrictions press simultaneously:
START + SELECT + RIGHT

To generate a random team excluding TM/HM learnsets press simultaneously:
START + SELECT + DOWN

To generate a random team excluding NFE Pokemon press simultaneously:
START + SELECT + UP

To generate a random team excluding NFE Pokemon and TM/HM learnsets press simultaneously:
START + SELECT + LEFT

To turn auto input mode on press simultaneously:
START + SELECT + A

To turn auto input mode off press simultaneously (this will work despite your input being "ignored" otherwise):
START + SELECT + B


Follow these steps:
preparse_list_tag('
[*]Start a new game normally and follow the modified intro[/*]
[*]When in the Pokemon Center, press START + SELECT + ? to generate a random team. This will take around half a second. You may indeed notice a small delay in the sound.[/*]
[*]Press START + SELECT + A if you'd like to battle with auto input mode (random button presses) enabled.[/*]
[*]Find someone to play against, and proceed to link battling using the emulator TGB Dual.[/*]
[*]You may turn off the auto input mode after the battle with START + SELECT + B, if you turned it on before.[/*]
[*]If you want to generate a different team you have to start a new game. This is to make cheating (i.e. keep generating teams until you get good one) more difficult. [/*]
', '*', $errors)

Given the simple nature of the hack, there's no screenshots to show; instead, you can see a video (link below) that shows the features of this hack.

DOWNLOAD LINK (UPDATED: v3.0): http://www.mediafire.com/download/s14ux … rystal.gbc

EXAMPLE VIDEO (v2.0): www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7dYZH0NCsw

ASM WORK (over pokecrystal): github.com/xCrystal/pokecrystal__RTG_AIM

New update (3.0) includes:

- Cleaned up intro even more and used it to explain how to generate the random team
- Starting map is PokeCenter 2F
- There is no need to deposit the Pokemon in the box because their stats and everything else will be already correctly calculated.
- If you activate the auto input mode it will only start being applied during the battle meaning that no perfect timing to activate it at the start of the battle will be necessary.

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

Out of curiosity, do you have any plans to turn this into something like the Pokemon Red Battle Tower hack? This would be a really neat idea but I don't have any friends to play with haha!

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

To be honest, I mostly made this little hack to get used to working over the dissasembly and with github. How far I get with this hack will depend on whether people actually care about it and find use for it. I personally have no much use for this hack, but I do know of people that do link battles often, and "random team mode" has always been fun to play in Pokemon simulators, so there you go.

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

Hey, your video got removed because it was (somehow) violating YouTube's Terms of Service...

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

Yes, I'm aware. I've appealed. Don't know if it was banned because of the download link in the description or because the over-30 minute low quality battle at the end. For some reason someone flagged it and staff decided to ban it. Don't see how the video violates anything in the terms of use.

But such is life i guess.

I'll update the op with the new version of the hack soon. [EDIT: DONE] I was hoping to make another video but oh well. Not for now, at least until I find out what caused the other video to be banned. Ill make sure not to include any download links in future videos.

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

I think someone reported your video because you released a whole ROM which would be considered pirating (that's why I have to release my hack as a patch file).

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

Well, it's not the first time I've done that or the first time I've seen that done in other videos. I do know the controversy of roms in general, though i can't really say i know to which extent a gbc rom can be considered illegal these days.

All in all, it would normally go unnoticed but if you had seen the video it contained a 40-minute battle that had extremely poor quality for some reason (wasn't my intention obviously) . So someone must have been annoyed by that, flagged the video, and then the staff also saw the download link to the rom, and banned the video. That's how I think it happened.

Re: Pokemon Crystal Challenge Cup

This is real cool. It's crazy how many different things you can do by hacking these games.
