Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I’m Pokemoner. Today, we will play Pokemon Souring Gold. It’s Project Rebooted 5.0.0 by VendorPC! This game is a feature hack ROM and based on Pokemon Heart Gold.
Some sprites are reworked. You can have a new pc box listing, new summary screen. You can train EV, EXP, and battle with shiny Machamp. And more features will be added to this game. I actually posted Project Rebooted 4 but you can’t migrate the save to Project Rebooted 5 because it’s 2 different games! And now, Let’s play!
Reworked and Remade Sprites for nearly the entire National Dex!
Nearly every little Pocket Monstrosity has received a palette update or a all-new sprite! Palettes were updated to better fit either their Anime portrayal or to buff their colors to what they look like in later games.
Obviously, with the entire Dex being redone to an extent this is barely touching this surface.
PC Box and Summary Screen Enhancements
Speeds are Faster when entering and leaving your box.
The cursor now moves quicker inside the PC Box.
Nature Buffs and Debuffs visible on the PC Box Screens and Summary Screens.
Egg Cycles are now shown on the summary screen giving you an estimate of how long you have left till the Egg hatches.
Font and Wording adjusted on the Summary Screen to make more sense and look less blocky.
New PC Box Listing
New Egg Cycle Viewing
New Summary Screen Nature Info
A New Area: The Battle Simulation Facility
Come to all worthy Trainers! Train your squad to new heights with this brand new facility! After Renovating the Global Terminal in Goldenrod, the city has now re-purposed its high-end technology to create nearly life-like simulations. (Currently on the 2nd Floor of the Building)Upon pressing one of the buttons a simulation occurs which allows you to EV train your Pokemon seamlessly. After the simulation concludes your party gets fully healed and PP restored.
You cannot catch any of the simulations, Every Simulation gives 3 EVs of it’s a particular stat.
EV Training Simulation Menu.
EXP Training! (No EVs Given During Combat)
Battle Vs Shiny Machamp Simulation (ATK EV Training)
The BSF will grow and get more features as time goes on. This is the early phase of what the BSF has to offer!
Bug Fixes, Trainer Fixes and Progression Related Bug Fixes
The game can now be finished in its entirety and most Trainer related bugs have been squashed.
EXP in early areas is much much easier to obtain and Trainers are not as hard in some areas while getting better difficulties. Items usable in battle, GS Sounds not permanently on.
Fishing is now 100% chance of an Encounter on all Rods.

Q. What is Rebooted?
A. Rebooted is a modification of HGSS. Check this post for more info: https://www.reddit.com/r/PokemonROMhacks/comments/fv5ytr/what_is_project_rebooted_a_breakdown_of_the/
Q. Is this hack randomizable?
A. Sadly it is not, as the modifications done to the game are so extensive that the randomizer utilities will not be able to read the game files.
Q. Will my save file from Rebooted 4.0 be usable for Rebooted 5.0?
A. No, as the modifications done between the versions are so extensive that attempting to re-use your previous save file will break the game/ corrupt your previous save.
Q. Can you add (insert Pokémon name here) to the game?
Q. Can you change (insert Pokémon name here) to be better?
A. Potentially, as all changes have been made from the result of long hours of discussion by the Balance Team and Admins. Feel free to apply for the Balance Team so your voice can be heard!
Q. Can you change (insert move name here) to be better?
A. See the previous answer.
Q. Why did my game suddenly get stuck on a blacktop screen after exiting a battle?
A. This is a side-effect of running any version of Heart Gold and Soul Silver in an emulator, regardless of whether or not it is a hacked version like Rebooted. The bottom screen will remain functional, so just save and reset. (If in the Safari Zone, the save option does not appear on the bottom screen. Simply press “Retire” and go through any prompts that show up and you will return to the Safari Zone Gate. Then you can save and reset.)
Q. Why are the sprites all glitched out after exiting a battle or leaving a building?
A. This is a side-effect of running any version of Heart Gold and Soul Silver in an emulator, regardless of whether or not it is a hacked version like Rebooted. Entering a building or a battle will fix it, and it has no impact on gameplay at all
Q. Can you add the abilities from after Gen 5 to the game?
A. It’s hard to say honestly. We obviously want to and did have them in earlier releases, but they just aren’t very stable and Vendor is committed to delivering the best version of Rebooted possible. As long as they compromise the integrity or functionality of the game, they won’t be made available.
Q. My Pokémon evolves through a trade evolution. How am I supposed to evolve it?
A. With the modifications to the game, the trade evolution method no longer exists. Please check the documentation to find out what your Pokémon needs to evolve.
Q. Will my save from Rebooted 5.0 be compatible with all future versions or hotfixes?
A. Yes, or at least that is the goal. Assuming no extreme modifications or complete rewrites of things are done between future versions, your 5.0 save will be compatible.
Q. Are Pokémon from Gen 5 – 6 and beyond in the game?
Q. What’s this BSF thingy people keep talking about?
A. The Battle Simulation Facility, located in Goldenrod City where the Global Terminal used to be.
Q. A trainer I’m fighting has a shiny Pokémon. Am I the most unlucky person in the world?
A. Nope. The vendor made the trainers have the same chance of having a shiny as we do finding them in the wild. Also, the shininess of trainer’s Pokémon isn’t randomized for each and every one of us, so any trainer with a shiny that you find has that shiny for everyone else.
This game is an NDS Hack ROM in English. It’s playable in Pokemon Heart Gold Storyline! But the feature is beta!
