The hack’s primary goal was to create a new and unique Pokémon Emerald experience by expanding/altering existing maps, introducing new gym leaders, maps, and encounters/trainer teams.

  • Generation 8 Battle Engine (Physical/Special Split, Fairy type, all new abilities/moves/items/learnsets included)
  • Vastly improved AI
  • Two difficulties (changeable at any time):
    • Hard (Default): Disables bag use in trainer battles and forces “Set” battle style. Trainers have more Pokémon, perfect IVs, EV investment (within reason!) and better held items.
    • Normal: Enables bag use in trainer battles and let’s the player choose battle style. Trainers will have less Pokémon, 15 IVs, no EV investment and less powerful held items.
  • Dynamic Level Scaling of Trainers and Wild Pokémon
  • Level Caps for every Gym Leader
  • Changes to weaker Pokémon to make them more fun to use
  • Move tutors all over Hoenn
  • Mega Evolution
  • 1-2 more difficult boss trainers on every route
  • Detailed documentation on all changes, where to find what item or Pokémon as well as trainer teams
  • and much more!

Please note: All difficulties are balanced around NOT looking up trainer documentation and NOT using a damage calculator.

Changelog v1.1.1 -> v1.2

What’s new?

  • Play with perfect IVs and disabled EVs on any difficulty!
  • Completely new battle interface and battle background!
  • Two new services in the Pokemon Center:
    • Change Hidden Power type
    • Set IV of specific stat to 0
  • Sandbox Auto Heal option, that heals you after every battle

And for all the nuzlockers out there:

  • Export your team and boxes to the calculator with custom lua script, see docs (credits to Tennis)
  • starters are now selected randomly upon interacting with Birch’s bag instead. this removes unnecessary replaying of the intro
