Pokémon Green English

Hack of Pokémon: Blue Version

Description:

Pokémon Red and Green. The games that were never released outside Japan, with other countries instead getting Red and Blue versions. However, the original Green version seems to be getting more attention than the original Red version, since the rest of the world got a Red version, but not a Green version.

Many have tried translating the original Japanese version of Green into English. Some have done a pretty decent work, but they all were crippled by the limits of the original Green rom.

After buying a Japanese version of Green on eBay, I played through it for a while. Eventually reached the fourth badge, then decided to start over for various reasons.

I felt like this game should get a proper translation. The previous translations of Green all suffered of cut-down names for Pokémon and attacks because the original Red and Green versions had a limited amount of characters available for names. That wasn’t a problem, since five letters were more than enough for the original Japanese names.

This started out as me wanting to edit Pokémon Blue to turn it into an English Green version. I asked for help at Skeetendo, and people helped me. After a while, more and more people became interested in the project and the one-man team evolved into a three-, four-, five-man team. Unfortunately, I ended up doing the least work in total, but I plan to catch up on this by doing the same thing with Red, using the hacking experience earned from this to complete it alone.

This is a hack of Pokémon Blue version that is meant to re-create the original experience of Pokémon Green. Almost everything has been changed back to what they were like in the original Green version. For those interested in playing Green, but were put off by the language barrier or bad translation, this is for you.

Credits list:

  • Chaos Rush, for editing the graphics (including Pokémon sprites);
  • stag019 for his useful website with all the hex locations for sprites in the original Green version;
  • Sawakita for the SGB data and the sprite-loading routine hack thingy;
  • Black Phantom (I believe it was him, from romhacking.net) who changed the titlescreen to “Green version”;
  • Myself, for editing the intro and Cerulean Cave.

Notes: This is not a 100% accurate translation. For example, the battle interface from the English versions of Red and Blue were retained. This is because the original Japanese versions used a battle interface that wasn’t wide enough to contain the full names for every attack. Besides, this battle interface is better; Takes up less space. Some other things weren’t edited as well, but shouldn’t really hinder your game experience.
