[JOHTO LEGACY] Pokémon Christmas - 2014 Version Released

Pokémon Christmas
Trainin' in a Winter Wonderland

Hack of:
Pokemon Gold Version


Story:

This is much more than a simple graphics hack to add snow. This game takes place the same year as GSC, just later in the year. It assumes that the events of GSC (the radio tower take over, the sick Pokémon at the lighthouse, all that stuff) took place that summer, so the major events will be different and more holiday themed. Since this is part of what I'm calling the "Johto Legacy", I will also include a few references to things that happened in "Pokémon Secrets and Rumours" and things that will happen in "Pokémon Spirits and Legends".


What's New:

- Ability to play as a Boy or a Girl player, chosen in the intro
- Kris as the player's main friendly rival
- Hiro or Mei (Whichever player you didn't choose) as an additional rival
- Major events changed to new and/or holiday themed ones
- New tilesets to give it a snowy winter feel, as well as a "Gen II-and-a-half" feel
- Map updates to be more in line with Heart Gold's map designs, but not exactly identical
- Physical/Special Split added, like the newer games have
- New Pokémon added (NO FAKEMON. See list below.)
- New moves. Flame Ball is a new "Special" Fire-Type move to melt ice blocks, and there are a couple moves from newer gens as well.
- New items (Key Items, Regular Items, etc.)
- Ice sliding on frozen lakes, not just in Ice Path
- A few references to my other hacks you might catch (including hints at the prequel)
- New locations, including: South Isle, Battle Tower, Ecruteak Shinto Shrine, Dragon Shrine, and more
- Restored Kanto locations, including: Viridian Forest, Pewter Museum, and more
- Some wild Pokémon location changes, some are the same
- Trainers sprites and rosters updated
  - All Gym Leaders have additional Pokémon, and all of Kanto's gyms are higher levels
- Lots of events have been redone, removed, added, etc.
- Some trainer classes have been changed
- There have been changes to the Elite Four
- Viridian has a different leader
- New Game Corner prizes (Johto and Kanto)
- Additional Prize Exchanges added at the Battle Tower
- Practice Battle Machines added for the Battle Tower. (They are like the ones in the old Sterling Silver, but improved)
- Move Tutors, who will teach your Pokémon a new move in exchange for a Heart Scale
- A version of the "Trendy Phrase" which can be used to unlock certain things, or just to amuse yourself
- More

Above Cerulean Cave was inspired by Pokémon Secrets and Rumours.
Jack's Secret Base was inspired by Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.
Battle Tower was inspired by Pokémon Crystal, Pokémon Sterling Silver, and various Battle Frontiers.
Town and Route designs inspired by Pokémon Heart Gold & Soul Silver.
The Rival's personality was inspired by Lyra from Pokémon Heart Gold & Soul Silver, and May from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.
The Rival's design was inspired by Pokémon Crystal.
Vulpix appearing in Union Cave was inspired by Pokemon Brown, where Vulpix can be found in Merson Cave.


Known Bugs
- People may blink out and back in for a second when you talk to them.
- Headbutt and Cut have minor graphical errors under the animation.
- The female player's sprite doesn't load properly on the Fly map in one or two areas.
- Some locations don't have the right name on the Town Map, because I ran out of area names.
- Female Kirlia can still evolve into Gallade.
- Playing on VBA-M may rarely result in graphical glitches when a textbox first loads. This only seems to appear with VBA-M and is not gamebreaking, nor does it always happen. Only observed a few times during testing.

I was mainly focused on adding new ice types, since it has a winter theme. I have Mudkip, Marshtomp, and Swampert listed in the thread but I am actually thinking about replacing them with others that are more suited to the winter theme. I haven't quite decided what those three will be yet though.

I might add more new moves as well, we'll have to see on that.

Sorry, I am not adding new legendaries. All of the Gen I and II legendaries are obtainable, and to me that is plenty.

Just a thoug but what about snowman snorlax from the series? They were one of the first alternates seen and would fit the theme pretty well imo.

Mateo i'm glad that you came back to Skeetendo!

Is Snover in this game? I think that the Ilex Forest is a good place for Snover since it's a ice/grass type pokemon. And it looks like a tree

Re: [JOHTO LEGACY] Pokémon Christmas - 2014 Version Released

@rosehudson - I'm honestly not sure what you are talking about with a "snowman snorlax". But it has been a long time since I really watched the anime, so if it is something from the newer seasons (and by "newer" I mean "Anything after Johto, except for the Flannery episodes of the Hoenn saga and the first couple of episodes of Kalos") then I don't know what it is :p

@Pokemon_Master - Thanks! Snover isn't in the game yet, but when considering who to replace Mudkip's line with, Snover and Obamasnow are two Pokemon that I am leaning toward. Not sure who I would put to fill that third slot though.

Its from an old episode. I didn't even finish Johto myself. They build a Snorlax out of snow and it comes to life. One of those cheesy Christmas episodes like Jynx Santa.

EDIT: I don't have access to it right now (though hopefully by the end of the night, broken laptop) but I do have a snowman snorlax sprite (as well as all other pokemon, so some ice types you may want) gen II sprites ready from my own project, I'll try get some stuff up for you to view later (if I can) if you want.

Not familiar with that episode somehow haha. Not sure if I want to include that or not though, it seems like it would feel too much like a Fakemon and I wasn't planning to include those. But yeah if you want to send me those sprites feel free to and I will let you know what I think of it anyway.

While I haven't done it yet, I was considering replacing Teddiursa and Ursaring with Cubchoo and Beartic. I'll have to see how things go though.

I barely every play hacks anymore, but I really want to take this on out for a spin sometime.  I'll have to wait a month or so, unfortunately. 

I like the devamped town map style, too.  Oh, and I really love the trendy phrase implementation.  I might have to do something like that in my hack... Maybe a rival catchphrase, like the locals in Animal Crossing.  That could potentially be really funny.

I would say there isn't much chance that most of those will show up. For one, most of them don't really fit with the winter theme enough to warrant replacing another Pokemon to add them. Another thing is that I personally wish Magmortar and Rhyperior had never even been made in the first place, because they just have really terrible designs and I can't make myself like them no matter how hard I try. I know it would be nice for the sake of "completion" to include the last Pokemon in those lines, especially since I have several other things in this hack that are inspired by Gen IV, but at least for this release it is unlikely that they will be included. Who knows what will happen in the future though, I may change my mind at some point and come up with a way to add them. But for now, they won't be included. Sorry about that.

EDIT: Haha that "Obamasnow" was intentional. I always call him that as a joke.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

The way I added the trendy phrase was honestly simpler and more flexible than the RSE version. It functions the same as naming a character, so you can type anything you want as the phrase. It is therefore shorter than the phrases were in RSE and more like a "slang word" or something, but it also makes it a lot easier to have it so players can unlock things with certain words without making them immediately obvious like they might be if it was chosen from a pre-existing list.
