Pokemon White Gold V1.4 (Fixed new moves and added Legendary Birds)

Hello!

Origins:
A year and a half ago I stumbled upon Pokemon ROM hacking and had a blast playing my first hack (Dark Rising).  Shortly after I stumbled upon the community as a whole and wanted to go back to my fav Gen and make small changes to my favorite game.  I worked for 1-2 months learning about hex and compiling tools, looking through old threads, and asking a lot of questions which Miksy91 happily helped with.  At some point I lost interest and picked it up almost a year later for about a month before I got bogged down trying to edit all the TMs and Wild Encounters.  I had started to think about working on it again and seeing Polished Crystal pop up just recently gave me the motivation to finish up at least some key things to my hack.  I'd like to put it out now and then keep going from here!

Main Idea:
This game is my vision of how Pokemon Gold should be.  It stays true to the original game and I figured there's no reason not to share it!  I feel like a lot of ROMs suffer by not adjusting pokemon level up movesets, for instance, I find it absurd that Aerodactyl doesn't naturally learn a rock attack.  This coupled with increased AI team diversity and level has lead to a nicer difficulty curve.  As long as you have a diverse team you should be fine, my trial playthrough involved killing no wild Pokemon after the first gym.  I look forward to adding in more end game content and more!

Here's my core changes so far:
-All Wild Pokemon and Trainer levels have been rebalanced
-All Gym Leaders/E4/Rival battles updated
-All 251 Pokemon have Improved/More Interesting Level-Up Moves
-The last 4 moves a Pokemon learn, the ones trainers/wild would have, produce a competitive moveset
-Evolving no longer changes rate of move learning
-Trade/Happiness evolutions changed to level up or stone evolution
-TMs Updated
-Physical/Special Split and added some later gen moves to balance the split
-Changed 15 moves to help adjust for the physical/special split
-Trade/Happiness evolutions changed to level-up/stone evolutions
-Wild Pokemon encounter chance minimum of 5% for a specific Pokemon
-Shiny Pokemon odds changed to 1/254 based on if all DV's are at least 12
-Only Pokemon that flee will be the 3 Dogs
-Legendary birds can be captured
-Increased Capture Rates
-Running Shoes by pressing B
-Mandatory 'Set' battle style
-Recieve Exp. Share early on
-In-Game Trades Updated
-Game Corner Prizes Updated
-Removed all Kanto hidden items
-Days of the Week Siblings are always visibile and interactive regardless of day
-All Goldenrod citizens are always visibile and interactive regardless of day

Re: Pokemon White Gold V1.4 (Fixed new moves and added Legendary Birds)

are all 251 pokemon obtainable?


Can i change the battle style back to shift?

were any of the wild pokemon locations changed?

I am guessing 1.4 is the newest version and the one on reddit isnt the newest one?

Actually I moved on from this hack to crystal disassembly, which offered a lot more potential.

It has been awhile since I looked but all wild encounters were changed, almost every Pokémon is available (ran into glitches with the legendary birds implementation), I think in crystal you can do shift battle style if you want.

Let me know what you think!

Re: Pokemon White Gold V1.4 (Fixed new moves and added Legendary Birds)

questions about your white crystal then?

is it complete?

are all pokemon available/obtainable in the game and wild pokemon locations changed?

I see that an glitch is the pc item broken-does that mean we cant deposit any items if we try to we lose them?

assuming for your white gold tms arent reusable?

It is largely complete as noted by the plethora of features.  I have play tested the game and am happy with its diverse trainer/wild pokemon and level difficulty balance.  No need to worry about the pc item glitch, there is an expanded inventory so you can pretty much carry everything you need.  From what I recall only some legendaries are missing as the only unfinished part of the hack.

I think I will probably will play your white gold instead of crystal since your gold seems more complete.

Assuming white gold does not have reusable tms?

how many items can you hold in white crystal as small as it seems i think not being able to deposit item bugs me as I know i like to deposit items when i no longer need them.

Suit yourself, the patch notes for both versions are there for comparison.  You can hold every item practically in crystal and there is a separate pocket for berries.
