Any news on this?

Probably not going to happen, but I'll just reiterate that I'd love an exclusive bugfixed version of this hack.

I know it's been a long time, but this is something I'm also looking for if anyone knows where I can find such a Romhack. A bugfix of Crystal that keeps everything else the same. No changes to type mechanics or extra pokemon in the game etc.

My reasoning behind the change is not to change the gameplay but more about making ghost and dark type attacks "make sense". If you think about it or look into future gens, most ghost type moves are special, same with dark type moves being physical. Both make sense to work that way and having a Gengar nuke things with shadow ball is no different than nuking things with elemental punches. Im gonna sound harsh but considering how not a lot of people were bothered with this change my guess is that is a welcome one. Everything is up to discussion of course, you can mostly reach out to me on Discord nowdays, im welcome to all kinds of feedback.

Thing is, by changing ghost type to physical it affects strategies quite significantly. For example, Snorlax and Miltank can no longer run Shadow Ball to effectively deal with ghost counters like Curse or Perish Song users (unless they switch out, which might not be possible if they are the last pokemon, the only Pokemon left are weak to ghost, or if they have been trapped with Mean Look). Also, fighting type and ground type Pokemon can't use Hidden Power Ghost anymore to counter Psychics and Ghosts.

Dark Type's aren't always physical in the new generations anyway, they are attack dependent, meaning they can be either physical or special depending on the attack.

I understand your reasoning is to make the typing make more sense or match more closely with that of later Pokemon games, but then what's the point of playing a gen 2-style game in the first place? Might as well just play newer Pokemon games. I like the battle mechanics of the old games specifically because they are different from the newer generations, it's nice to have that variety. That's why I was looking for a mod of the game that fixed the bugs but didn't alter typings etc.

Re: Pokemon Patched Crystal 1.0 Initial Release

I'll comment in support of the changes.

a) this is a romhack, the whole point is to play gen 2 with changes the author wants to make
b) it is very easy to change it back if a given user wants to (I do this all the time to screw around)
c) of course changing typing will change strategies; that's a good thing, IMO, makes it more interesting (and it makes Espeon a terrifying little cat-thing)
d) there are definitely other mods that are just bug fixes (pretty sure this is the crystal version used by TPP way back)
e) Long Live Ghost As Special!

Cheers!
