User Review Information

Please offer version without gen 6 typing

Reviewed By: widdiful on 20 Oct 2021

The Gen 6 typing ruins this for me, that immediately stops it from being an authentic Gen 1 experience, which is supposedly the purpose of this romhack. Everything else about it is great, but the changes to the core gameplay being forced, without offering an optional alternative patch file to not have it, completely ruins this which is very unfortunate. I cannot understand why this change was made, especially when it’s trying to be faithful and I could just patch it in additionally myself if I wanted to. This is a drastic change and is in no way authentic.

Version 1.5 Recommended - No
