Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

Hack of Pokemon Crystal Version (using the Pokecrystal disassembly).

Kalos Crystal is a sequel to my previous hack, Unova Red. This is a re-imagining of Generation 2, where the first generation of Pokemon were the Unova Pokedex, and the new second generation Pokemon are the Kalos Pokedex. This game features all Pokemon from generations 5 and 6, and like in Unova Red, all Pokemon in the Pokedex are obtainable within a single playthrough.

Features:
-Pokedex includes Gen 5 & 6 Pokemon (Victini through Volcanion)
-All standard trade evolutions are now level up evolutions. Stone evolutions use stones available in Gen 2. Refer to spoiler log for details
-Fairy Type added, does SPECIAL damage
-New moves added, replacing some old ones
-Moves, in general, match stats used in Gen 6 games
-Ghost is SPECIAL, Dark is PHYSICAL
-Some TMs changed, refer to spoiler log for details
-TMs are still one-time use, however
-Some evolutions changed/made easier
-New locations added for evolution stones (they are notoriously rare in Gen 2). Refer to spoiler log for details
-Ruins of Alph event requires all 4 puzzles to be solved, so don't be discouraged when nothing happens after the first puzzle.
-New Pokemon encounters/gifts have been added, so keep an eye out!
-The final Rival encounter is now a one time battle, and not based on the day
-The Elite Four become stronger after collecting all KANTO gym badges

Credits:
This ROM hack was made possible by the PokeCrystal Disassembly. Credits to Rangi, as well as Mateo, Crystal, and Danny-E33 whose advice and code snippets aided in the coding of this hack.

Huge credits to the artists whose in-battle sprite work was used in this hack: COMBOY for the Gen 5 sprites, and JaceDeane for the Gen 6 sprite collection, along with individual sprite work by Chamber, Solo993, Gen VI 64x64, N-Kin, Zorgoth120, WAH!, PiaCarrot, XY Sprite Proj., Incufan120, Fexiled, Hooded_Bird, Kyledove, Zerudez, Monnotonnous Pixels, Vale98PM, Dragonball253, Axel-Comics, Noscium, Faintster, Mylittlekeldeo, Tor2005, Lakeofdance, Neslug, Jozzer26, Pokemon Grape, Fenne-King, Falgaia, Lepragon. Other custom sprites, such as overworld sprites, were made by me.

Download Link:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/1wxza9gcr … rystal.zip
Link comes with the .ips patch for Kalos Crystal (patches the base Crystal Version ROM that Pokecrystal builds), a readme with much of the same points as above, and some spoiler logs where you can get information on learnsets, evolution methods and levels, TMs, Pokemon locations, and new stone locations.

This ROM hack is effectively complete. All of its intended features have been accounted for, so there will likely not be any major updates incoming unless there is some game breaking bug that I'd somehow missed. Any suggestions for anything that needs tweaking or cleaning up is appreciated. Have fun!

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

Quick question: Does this have the gender variants for the Gen 5 & 6 mons such as Meowstic & Unfezant?

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

No variants, I just used the (generally) most recognizable sprite, so male Unfezant/Pyroar, female Meowstic, etc. Though for Meowstic, I did make its moveset somewhat of a mashup of the two.

That's good to know because I sure as hell don't want multiple Pokemon crowding boxes in my PC.

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

Hi, I assume you used the Gen 6 sprites from this link (https://tinyurl.com/y8ke9d5s)?
If so, I'm the guy that put the pack together, and reworked most/all of those sprites.
I'd really appreciate credit for that, as it took a really long time. Preferably as "JaceDeane"
Thanks mate, and good work on the hack otherwise.

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

UPDATE: ROM has been updated with a few minor fixes.
-Thief has 60 power, as it did in Gen 6.
-Minimize and Growth have had their PP increased to 20 and 40 respectively, matching the PP they had before the buffs to their effects (as they use their pre-buffed effects in Kalos Crystal).
-Fixed a graphical glitch when an opponent uses Struggle Bug on a Pokemon with a tall sprite.
-Petal Tower entry text is now correct.
-Fixed some minor spelling errors.

The patch in the download has been replaced with the updated patch. This should have no effect on saves created on the previous patch.

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

UPDATE:

IPS Patch in download file has been updated. This update fixes some minor graphical issues (fixed color on Karrablast and Oshawott back sprites and fixed Serperior to use the proper back sprite image). Also, a bug has been fixed where evolving a Pokemon with a rare candy could cause crashing. This particular bugfix involved reworking the Pokemon animation engine, so saves made on the older patches may not work on this new patch. Also, a list of TMs learnable by each Pokemon has been added to the docs. Please let me know if any errors are discovered, thanks!

Re: Kalos Crystal - Completed ROM Hack (Unova Red sequel)

There's a bit of a small bug where Swirlix doesn't evolve at max happiness at level up. I didn't use a rare candy and I saved right before it gains enough experience to level to 19 and earlier I noticed this with another one I had. Doublade & Spritzee evolved normally but not this one for some reason.

Will investigate this, thanks!

Sure, no problem! I'm going to make preparations to fight Red and finish this soon!
