This is an improved version of Pokemon FireRed. The goal of this project is to improve and rebalance the game without significantly changing the original experience or flavor of the Kanto Remakes.
This is the author’s very first rom hacking project and although the game is completed and playable to the end of the main story, it is a work in progress and a learning experience for him.
Important functions and mechanisms!
The game’s level curve has been rebalanced. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s increased: in fact, the level caps that represent the level curve aren’t much higher than in the original game. What has been rebalanced is the progression of the level curve, which was originally too low in mid-game and spiked towards the end, and which now flows better into the later parts of the game. It’s easier to keep up with trainers and find new Pokemon to add to your team, all with minimal grinding.
The game is generally more challenging, thanks to improved team structures and enemy trainer movesets.
During the main storyline, all of the original Kanto Pokémon are available, as well as their Johto cross-generation evolutions and pre-evolutions. Of course, this means that the game will no longer prevent you from evolving Pokemon like Golbat before you’ve obtained the National Pokédex.
The locations and encounter rates of several Pokémon have been changed and improved.
The rest of the Johto Pokédex will be available in the post-game portion.
Added distinction between physical and special moves.
To accommodate this and to improve certain movepools, the following moves have been added to the game:
Drill Run, Poison Jab, Dark Pulse, Air Slash, Iron Head, Earth Power and Flash Cannon. (All of these moves currently have placeholder animations that I borrowed from other moves that I thought would fit the role).
The Level Up, TM/HM, and Move Tutor Study Sets for each Pokémon have been redesigned from the ground up. (Currently, only the 151 Kanto Pokémon’s study sets and their respective generation-spanning evolutions have been changed. Johto Pokémon will only appear in the post-game, which is not yet complete.)
Most moves, abilities, and Pokémon stats have been updated. There are only a few exceptions to this. (Explosion and Self-Destruct keep their effective base power of 400 and 500, respectively, to increase gameplay. Growth is not currently being updated to its modern effect due to a bug we’re just figuring out).
Several moves have been changed and improved to make them more enjoyable and comfortable.
Some TMs have been changed to accommodate the new trains or to improve accessibility.
Only a select few Pokemon from the lowest category have had their base stats boosted directly: Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Onix, Lickitung, Farfetch’d, and Ditto.
The inconvenient evolution methods of many Pokémon have been changed and improved: In particular, trade and friendship evolutions are now easier to obtain.
Other nifty features!
The player starts the game with the running shoes and can run indoors.
TMs and Move Tutors can be reused indefinitely.
HM trains can be forgotten at any time.
The train reminder has moved to the house of the train killer in Fuchsia City and is now offering his services for free.
The prices in the Celadon play corner have been revised and now have cheaper prices.
The various gift Pokémon that the player receives throughout the adventure have had their levels increased to accommodate the level curve improvements. Yes, that means you can revive Fossil Pokémon at a humanely reasonable level.
Several trades in the game have been changed.
Wild Pokémon’s chance of keeping their rarer item slot has been increased to 10%.
Several held items can now be found in the overworld, including evolution items, and the player can obtain multiple copies of them by stealing them from wild Pokémon.
TM36 Sludge Bomb has been moved to Silph Company, and TM45 Poison Strike (previously Attire) has been moved to Cinnabar Mansion.
