Also, be sure to try out Pokemon Outbounds.


Pokemon CAWPS is unlike my previous hack, Pokemon Outlaw (aptly named FireRed for adults). If you haven’t played Pokemon Outlaw, you should check it out (not for young kids, though).
It is the story of a young man or woman who becomes a police officer in the Hoenn region.
As in Outlaw with Kanto, this isn’t the same Hoenn you experienced in Pokemon R/S/E. The people in this hoenn are a bit more realistic (by that I mean crazy). I’ll try not to be as awful as I was at times in Outlaw (I REALLY crossed some lines that I shouldn’t have crossed to make the game a little darker), but it’ll be roughly the same style, albeit very weak. If you didn’t like Outlaw, you probably won’t like this game either. I would also like to apologize in advance

WARNING: Like Outlaw, this game would likely get at least a T (if not an M or worse) on the ESRB rating system. Also, there is a lot of violence, death and other things described/depicted in this game. If you’re uncomfortable with that, this game probably isn’t for you.


  • You get two starter Pokemon, so to speak. (You choose one, the other is simply given to you.)
  • “Funny” dialogue (or really offensive, you know how it goes if you’ve played Outlaw). But honestly, it’s not the same as Outlaw. I’ve cooled down a bit.
  • Grinding Cave (a cave for grinding levels, very important at the end of the game)
  • No gym challenge or pokemon league (I’m sick of the same old scheme, I’m mixing it up).
  • You can be a fucking cop, that’s great! (I think the idea came from that awfully funny movie ‘Let’s be cops’ or maybe Rush Hour, I don’t know). That means you can do all sorts of cop stuff.
  • Female protagonist option – not really a feature, but for me it’s an achievement. I’m usually too lazy to put in a female option. I’ve realized that there’s a decent number of women hanging out on these forums (some of you guys are hot, call me I’m single) so I should stop being a woman-hating pig. I’m just patting myself on the back. As a result, the “story” attempts to be gender neutral.
  • Trade Evos are made from moonstones. And Eevee evolves into Umbreon with Moonstone and Espeon with Sunstone. Also, you can buy stones in the Lilycove Dept Store, which you couldn’t in Pokemon Emerald. Not really a feature, but whatever.
  • Not really a feature either, but I made the Move Rock smash stronger. It always bothered me why Rock Smash was always so weak. So I made it a decent move in this game.


If you spot any bugs in Pokemon CAWPS , please let me know. There are a few bugs that I know that are in the game but all them are fairly minor. If you spot any major bugs, again, let me know.
Also, there are probably some typos. This was a one man job. I’m bound to make some mistakes typing so many words.

Not really fixed:

  1. Dewford island boat not appearing(at all!) glitch. This glitch seems to occur with those who patch with Pokemon Emerald(U) ROMS(or not). If this glitch occurs to you, please let me know and give me details, because I’ve never ran into this glitch when testing the game myself.
  2. Lannette gives out heart scales forever. FREE HEART SCALES YALLZ!
  3. In very beginning of game, if you don’t step forward when initially entering the first building but step back to leave. You are free to roam the world without a Pokemon. I don’t intend on fixing it, as the vast majority of players will take that step forward instinctively.
  4. At some point, someone will tell you May is in Fallarbor but she’s actually in Verdanturf. It’s not worth the effort of fixing because most players won’t encounter this person.
  5. Just save the game before you enter the 3rd floor of devon corp. If one of your pokemon faints in the co-op double battle on the 3rd floor AND then you whiteout/blackout in one of the battles aftwerwards, then that pokemon may(according to a person who reported the bug) be turned into a bad egg. So, I recommend saving before you get to the part and/or making sure none of your pokemon faint in the co-op double battle.

Fixed (just make sure your patch is up to date):

  1. Lady that gives sooth bell in fan club. After she gives soothe bell, she’ll walk off the screen. It’s not that big of a deal(has no real effect on anything) but I’m updating the patch to fix this issue on 1/7/2016 at 12:06 PM ET.
  2. Glitch relating to losing to final boss. I’ve updated the patch to fix this one on 1/7/2016 at 5:16 PM ET.
  3. Dewford island boat disapearing after you white out glitch. I’ve fixed it, so that the boat won’t disappear while you don’t have surf/fly. So I pretty much fixed that issue. If you white out in Dewford(losing to Brawly or Brendan or their goons), the boat will not disappear. This fix was made on 1/9/2016 at 12:51 PM ET.



Final Note

Thanks to everyone who bothers to care to read this thread and even more thanks to anyone who bothers to play Pokemon CAWPS hack! You guys are great! That said, it’s okay if you want to get brutally honest. If you feel like I warrant some personal insults or vile verbal abuse, go for it.
