I've been working with a few Roms as of late, namely Pokémon Crystal.
I've been changing pointers here and there, and slightly altering maps and such. Simple ASM hacking, stuff like that. I have a much larger endeavor, however.
I'd like to invite anyone who is knowledgeable on the subject of professional Pokémon battling with this project. I've went through Smogons G/S/C section in the competitive battling sections and understand that quite a few Pokemon, namely the ones in UU and NU are simply bad Pokémon. Their stats, movesets or both have caused them to be miserable, unused Pokemon. I'd like the change this!
I am looking for someone to help me balance out all 252 Pokémon in Pokemon Crystal. I'm capable ASM editing the new Pokémon stats (still researching on changing their movesets, but I'm sure it's not too hard), and need someone to tell me why some Pokémon are bad and what we can do to improve them in their own unique way. I want every single fully evolved Pokémon to be viable in a tournament setting. What's the use of having Pokémon in the game if their useless or incompetent in terms of battling?
I was thinking of making all of the Pokémons stat average to range from something like 530-540, so they all have an equal fighting chance. Some Pokémon stats may vary since their movesets determine how they fight as well, and I'm not sure how to tie that in. I'm also considering removing the OHKOs, although I need suggestions about that as well.
I look forward to your responses!
