Pokemon Red Rumor (Pokered Hack)

Hello all!

This is my first rom hack after restarting over and over with multiple rombases over the last year, I finally have a finished product that I'm proud of, so without further ado...

Hack Name: Pokemon Red Rumor
Hack of: Pokemon Red

Storyline:
The story is largely unchanged from Pokemon Red, but I added in the unfortunately false pokemon rumors of the 90s such as Pokegods, Mist Stones, and Brick Town. Not all rumors made the cut (who wants to beat the E4 40 times or with a Caterpie, or program it??) and some methods to activating these old "codes" were made a little more understandable in the context of the game.

There are 2 versions to choose from. A cheat and a non cheat version. Inspired by a lot of Pokegods being supposedly obtainable by GameShark, I created a GameShark item that is unobtainable in non-cheat version (outside of using your emulator's own cheat function to give it to yourself ;)), but replaces the Potion at the beginning of the game.

I've included along with the 2 ips, documentation on how to get all the Pokegods and various extra events and credits again.

Screenshots:

Download Link:

Game is considered complete as of Version 1.1. Unless someone finds an egregious glitch or bug or oversight that I missed.

Credits:
Coding Stuff:
pret: Original pokered disassembly
Danny-E 33: The Gen-II graphics rombase, various bits of advice such as how the Missingno glitch works
glodfinch: Remove saving from the safari zone
Luna: Various upgrades from Red++ and pokered-clean
Rangi: RedStar which inspired me to make my own romhack
RenaKunisaki: Fine grain text speeds and debug menu which was turned into the GameShark item, better move info in battle
ShantyTown: Auto reuse repel, Move Reminder
ShinyDragonHunter: Blinking arrow in new paragraphs

Sprite Stuff:
RainbowDevs: Sprites for all the Mega Evolutions, Spiritomb sprites by COMBOY,
GameFreak: Hifishi is the beta Qwilifish evo, as well as all original GSC sprites
Poketto: Red Backsprite
Pia Carrot and Copetin: the old man's back sprite
DarioEMeloD: Pokeball and Snorlax devamps
BurstXShadowzX - Leaf devamps

The Alolan Raticate, Venustoise, Kriketune, Armored Mewtwo and Diamond Onix are from a resource provided by bloodlessNS but I was unable to find the creators, sorry.

If I missed anyone or anything, please let me know. I really wanna make sure everyone who helped is properly thanked.

Quick update: Forgot one sprite creator, and uh.. well forgot that I changed the game's name mid production, whoopsy.
Update: Version 1.1 release

Version History:
Version 1.0 - Initial Release
Version 1.1 - Added Move Reminder in Vermilion City, Onix has his moveset and Dimonix has his, slight text change in Outcast Cave

Re: Pokemon Red Rumor (Pokered Hack)

Thanks and appreciation to everyone who's played and enjoyed so far. I updated the game to 1.1, which is a small update. I should also mention that before you apply the new ips (over a clean rom mind) be sure not to save in Vermilion City since I edited the map with a new warp and you could end up standing in the water somewhere on load. Saving in Vermilion pokecenter or any of the buildings is fine though.

It crashes for me after in the intro with both patches on bgb and mgba. I used the same red rom I used for many other hacks before.

Re: Pokemon Red Rumor (Pokered Hack)

I really appreciate the effort here but considering the game was modernized in a number of ways it would've been nice to see updated base stats, move powers, the newer types, and maybe a few new moves to go along with PSS. Some kind of hard mode would have been great too.

Sounds great. I am still traumatized from believing in the mew thing and deleting my 50h+ save to try it out and then nothing happened.

You cant make everyone happy. Some people prefer the rest of the game to stay as original as possible.
But if the extras are optional like hard mode in some games it wouldn't hurt anyone.

I am just glad that this hacks seems to work on the old DMG, too. (Only tested on emulator so far). Most newer gen1 hacks are gbc only.

Honestly this project was just meant to get my feet wet in programming and rom hacking. Originally it wasnt going to be more than adding in the Pokegods and Mist Stone and call it done but after learning the disassembly and how asm works I found myself wanting to add in more and why it took over a year is because I kept going over and over what should and shouldn't go into it. I decided against the newer types and updated moves because this is meant to capture the old nostalgic thrill of hunting for a rumor you heard on the playground and nothing really more. But since I knew most of the new stuff was rather later in the game I decided to add some basic QoLs to make the base game a little more enjoyable without upending the nostalgic feel of the original.

Fair enough. Thank you for making the game anyway.

I hope this doesn't mean Mateo won't bring back Secrets and Rumors.
Also, Where do we first get the Mist stone, and how much of it do we get?
also, anyone that's good enough to make a randomizer for this?

The first available Mist Stone is hidden in Seafoam Islands, a second can be obtained for finishing Brick Town, and they are purchasable in Brick Town.
