Recent Updates

  • Hacks
    A new optional bug fix patch has been added to the downloadable file.
  • Hacks
    Update to Version 1.98a. Added chillyfeez's fix to the the Adamant Grotto so that it won't rip you off with Pink Tails. Fixed typos (Mysidian Elder before Mt Ordeals, Rosa's mother) (Thanks PersonWithTime)
  • Games
    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)

Pokemon Retcon Micropatch Collection (FireRed)

Hack of Pokémon: FireRed Version

Description:

Retcon - Short for “retroactive continuity”, a practice in media where previously-established information is changed in order to fit with a new direction that the series is going.

The Pokémon Series, for the most part, does not retcon. Instead, they create elaborate reasons for why things didn’t exist before. One example of this is in Eevee’s evolutions. Rather than simply adding new evolutions, GameFreak came up with increasingly complex reasons why Eevee couldn’t evolve to new forms in previous games. First it was because of happiness, then because it must evolve in certain locations, then because it needs to know a specific move. In other cases, they pass off bugs as intentional decisions. For example, Pinsir is a Bug Type Pokémon that learns only Fighting Type moves. However, since it wasn’t a Bug/Fighting Type from the beginning, that will never be corrected.

The refusal to retcon has added up over the years. Enter this Micropatch Collection. It targets Gen III games and makes a series of retcons to provide a fuller, richer experience for longtime players.

It contains 2 main categories: evolution/breeding changes and type changes. Each patch is fully compatible with all of the others, and SHOULD be compatible with most other hacks, as they only change one byte here and there. The reason this is released as a “micropatch collection” and not one big patch is to allow players to choose which changes they want to make, and which they want to ignore.
