[Gold Hack] Johto Legacy - Pokémon Christmas

Post by Mateo on Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:14 am


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, gyrados and all) 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 like to think of this as something of an "alternate third version", sort of like Crystal, Platinum, and Christmas themes all mixed together.


What's New:

- Major events changed to holiday themed ones
- New tilesets to give it a snowy winter feel
- Map updates to take advantage of more map block availability
- New Pokemon added (from other gens)
- A new move
- New items
- Ice sliding on frozen lakes, not just in icepath
- A few references to other Skeetendo hacks you might catch (including hints at the prequel)
- New locations
- Some wild pokemon location changes, some are the same
- Some trainers changed, several the same
- 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
- Game corner prizes (Johto and Kanto)
- More

New Pokemon
Glaceon
Leafeon
Weavile
Mamoswine
Snorunt
Glalie
Froslass
Mudkip
Marshtomp
Swampert


New Evolutions
Eevee -> Glaceon = Ice Shard
Eevee -> Leafeon = Leaf Stone
Snorunt -> Glalie = Level up
Snorunt -> Frosslass = Sun Stone
Piloswine -> Mamoswine = Level Up
Sneasel -> Weavile = Moon Stone


Pokemon You Cannot Get (Even by trading)
Hoppip (Replaced by Mudkip)
Skiploom (Replaced by Marshtomp)
Jumpluff (Replaced by Swampert)
Spinarak (Replaced by Mamoswine)
Ariados (Replaced by Weavile)
Dunsparce (Replaced by Leafeon)
Tangela (Replaced by Glaceon)
Sunkern (Replaced by Snorunt)
Sunflora (Replaced by Glalie)
Yanma (Replaced by Froslass)


Trading
You can catch Trade Evolutions in Cerulean Cave, but if you have VBA link you can trade still. While Pokemon centers are only one floor, there is a Global Trade Station on South Isle allowing you to trade.


Screenshots:


Just like Platinum, the player is dressed for cold weather


New Cueball Trainer


New Female Swimmer


Olivine City


Kanto also gets an update


Pokecenters get an update as well. Melash is also using this tileset for his Pokémon Hack.


Things have changed, even before you leave home.


I wonder how?


Route 45 anyone? (You cannot surf from there, though. The water is on a different level than you.)


South Isle (NPCs edited out because I didn't want to spoil the Legend Festival)


A taste of the new update. Increased continuity with the upcoming prequel.


Continuity addition. This house belongs to the player from Spirits and Legends.


Hmm, I can't imagine what this place would be.


Another Sterling Silver reference, Zigzagoon and Linoone are here now!
And there is a surprise related to them, too.


I had forgotten to rename this route in the last version, so that's been fixed.
It's been redesigned too! Wonder what South Isle itself is doing.


Well, we can't go through that cave yet.
And what are Team Rocket doing here?


There's obviously something Rockety going on at South Isle.
Could this have something to do with why Jasmine is taking so long to return from her trip?

Support Banner:



Here is a banner you can put in your signatures, (on forums that have them) or you are free to make your own. I just put this together because I realized I hadn't made one!


Download:
NEW VERSION! Bug fixed and Final Trainer added (Updated 18 April 2012):
Sendspace Download
Mediafire Download
GBC File download

I'm wondering why trainers are wearing vests only and swimming suits if there is snow in most of the regions.

I'd like to pitch in an idea if you don't mind: have Ice Skaters as Swimmers and maybe Lumberjacks as Cue Balls. This might be adding too much onto the list you already have though Smile

Also, you replaced the Mudkip family with the Fakemon family but your notes don't reflect the change.

Other than that, I can't wait to see the updated features you've been working on.

Thanks for pointing that out! I'll go in and update this more fully (as well as the ones on Skeetendo and Pokecommunity). For now, I just copied the one from Skeetendo and gave it the banner from Pokecommunity.

Those trainer changes probably wouldn't be too time consuming, although it would make the swimmers on sea routes (who are currently standing around on docks talking to people) seem out of place, since you can't skate on the ocean :p Also a lot of them are inside now. But I guess we'll just have to see.

Is it possible to make a winter themed textbox, Mateo?

It wouldn't be difficult to change the text box, but not sure how to make it "winter themed". What did you have in mind?

I might look into it, not sure how well those particular designs will work out. But I'll see what I can come up with, once I get done with other gameplay related things.

I think the text boxes look fine personally, but that's just my opinion Smile

To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause.

Check out border frame Type 4. It seems snow-covered candy cane-like, and I'm willing to try to find out how to disable choosing other types of borders and make that the default one.

I'll look around at the different borders and see what we can do. I wasn't thinking about that at first with the candy-cane style you mentioned, but now that you bring it up I do remember there being one that would work for it.
