Hack of Pokémon: HeartGold Version

Description:

PLEASE see the accompanying Readme in the .zip file for specific details.

EDIT 6/19/2021: THIS IS NOW VERSION 3.0.4!

This was based on the 4787 version of the Heartgold ROM. DSPRE and Pokeditor v2 were used for scripting and editing.

This is a standalone patch meant to enhance and improve Pokémon Heartgold while keeping the original feel. Instead of being a complete reworking of the game, this is essentially “Vanilla Heartgold+”, with versions exclusives fixed, trade evolutions rectified, evolution items and berries both renewable, and alternatives provided for the more luck-based encounters. A good-sized amount of dialogue has been changed, as well as a handful of NPCs being added to explain some of the more obscure mechanics, not to mention superbosses to test your mettle. The core plot is identical to vanilla Heartgold. If you want to go back to Heartgold, whether to revisit memories or make new ones, this mod is meant to help make them a little more vivid.

Features include:

  • Golden Corrals - All Pokémon are now consistently available, with Johto encounters strictly being from the Johto Dex. All evolutions that require an additional game, including both trade evolutions and Probopass, Glaceon, etc. can now be done without any such requirements.
  • Indigo Tales - All legendaries and mythicals can now be fought through regular gameplay. Similarly, the Celebi and Spiky-Eared Pichu events have been restored.
  • Worth its Weight - An overwhelming amount of wild Pokémon now hold held items.
  • A Silver Tongue - The core plot is identical, but a sizable amount of dialogue has been changed to make NPCs and bookshelves more interesting.
  • Bullion Market - All TMs, evo items and berries are now renewable and buyable from Olivine and Vermillion after beating Lance.
  • Gold Standard - Movepools have been slightly altered to allow easier access to certain egg moves and the like. However, all movepools are legal in Generation 4.

AS OF v2.0!

  • Executive Order - SUPERBOSSES HAVE BEEN ADDED! Meet up with Eusine, be roasted by Archer, watch Mr. Game flip the table. Post-Blue challenges have been added.
  • National Parks and Rehabilitation - Encounters have been redone again, and many features have been rebalanced.
  • Time Enough - HP bars update up to 2x as fast. Purely aesthetic, but good QoL.

AS OF v3.0!

  • Overhaul Part 1 - The Great Band-Aid revises all major fights and improves the lategame level curve. ALL Kanto gyms have been remastered. This is the first stage of the planned overhaul, and still greatly resembles HG’s original…quirks.
  • Rocky Road - Additional evolution stones and TMs can now be found in Johto and Kanto. Magmarizer, Dawn, and other such items are still Kanto-exclusive.
