Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I'm Pokemoner. We will play Pokemon Metallic by baylorknight. This game is based on Pokemon Gold, so it's a GBC HACK ROM.
In this game, you can have a new starter, the map is changed a little bit, No trade evolution, more dragon pokemon, No need more HM and more features... Anyway, It's the same as pokemon gold in English. It's completed. Let's play, bro!
Pokemon Metallic Description:
This hack was meant to recreate the Pokemon Gold experience without changing it drastically. The point was to "correct" some aspects of the game and make the game a bit more exciting with some new features. Most editing went into the evolutions, stats and move changes, but a lot of work went into the map revamping and the wild Pokemon encounters/ Trainer changes as well. This hack is different, so documents will be provided; Evolution sheet, Pokedex sheet (gives you the base stats and type changes of the evolved forms, since pre-evolved forms weren't necessary), and a Move Change sheet.
It's important to read the documents I've provided before/while playing this game since they contain all the new information for the game including evolutions, move changes, and Pokemon stat changes. (Note: The Pokemon stat changes sheet does not include uneveolved forms since they are not crucial)
⦁ Slightly simplified/revamped/prettier maps (Most caves are simplified; direct paths instead of walking through grass).
⦁ New evolutions for Pokemon, which are done through stones (i.e. Remoraid has three evolutions; Lapras, Mantine, & Octillery).
⦁ New starters (see below)
⦁ You can see all Pokemon for your pokedex through battles and some can be found in the wild.
⦁ All HM's aren't necessary in this game. The move Cut only needs to be used once. Whirpool and Flash do not need to be used at all.
⦁ All edited moves have 100% accuracy.
⦁ Trade evolutions are done through stones.
⦁ Wild Pokemon/trainers have been edited.
⦁ Evolution Stones, power up items (i.e. mystic water, charcoal, etc.) and lucky eggs are available at the Goldenrod City Department Store. Mystery Berries, Miracle Berries, PP UP, MooMoo Milk, Exp. Share, HP Up, Iron, and Max Revives can be purchased in Ecruteak City.
⦁ More dragons. (i.e. Yanma, Onix, Steelix, Aerodactyl, Victreebell, Gyarados)
⦁ Moves have been edited (every type has at least one move that does 120 damage and 12 PP; some move types have changes as well as their effects; also grass types are more useful now).
⦁ Most Pokemon have a split between their defense/special defense so they're equal. This is also done with Pokemon who have attack and special attack types.
⦁ If a Pokemon is a special attack based pokemon (i.e Alakazam) then they will learn special attack based moves and will likely lack in the attack stat since it's kind of unneccessary. Pokemon who have a physical and a special type (i.e. Stantler, who is now Normal/Psychic) will have an even divide between attack and special attack and the type of moves they learn will match that.
⦁ Over 100 Pokemon have had their movesets, types, stats, or evolutions edited, creating an interesting twist to the game. Pokemon that are normally weak (i.e. Ledian, Butterfree, and Beedrill) have higher and more balanced stats/moves.
⦁ "Twin" Pokemon, which are Pokemon designed to share the same base stats and usually their growth rates/base exp. are the same. (i.e. Ninetales, Houndoom, and Arcanine all share a base stat total of 555 and the same growth rate/base exp. along with their unevolved forms) (Yes, I'm aware "twins" refers to TWO individuals, which was the original plan, however there are some "triplets" who were added after I coined the phrase while developing this game).
⦁ Some Pokemon, instead of typical evolution, share the same stats as their evolved form. (i.e. Scyther and Scizor share the same base stats, growth rates, and base exp. but Scizor is like a "defensive" version of Scyther, who is more offensive.)
⦁ This game is more difficult than the original so training is important. This shouldn't be difficult with VisualBoyAdvance since it has a speed up setting which I suggest you keep handy if needed. Toward the beginning of the game, please be sure to have Pokemon that either don't evolve, or Pokemon that evolve by level handy. Around the second gym, you will be probably between level 20-30. Pokemon who evolve by stone this early in the game need to be evolved at level 30, so if you hit level 30, don't level it past that UNTIL you get to Goldenrod Department Store to evolve them. This is to ensure that you get the best moveset, as most evolved Pokemon learn a better moveset at level 30 when they evolve.
⦁ Since this game takes place before the special/physical split (see below for types), pokemon stats are designed around their types. (i.e. Gengar was a special attack based Pokemon, but ghost (ironically) was considered a physcial attack type, so naturally, I gave Gengar more attack)
Physical Types: Normal, Rock, Ground, Poison, Fighting, Ghost, Bug, Flying, Steel
Special Types: Water, Fire, Electric, Ice, Dark, Psychic, Dragon, Grass
⦁ PLEASE DON'T ENTER THE DOOR IN THE GOLDENROD TUNNEL TO GO TO THE BASEMENT UNTIL AFTER YOUV'E BEATEN THE 7TH BADGE AND GONE THROUGH THE GOLDENROD RADIO TOWER!!!! TRAINERS HERE ARE EXTREMELY HIGH LEVEL AND A GLITCH WON'T ALLOW ME TO FIX THE ENTRANCE, SO UNLESS YOU WANT TO DIE INSTANTLY, PLEASE DON'T!
⦁ Swimmers will appear swimming when you encounter them even if they cross onto land. Nothing major, the battles work the same, they just swim on land (lmao)
⦁ Some people walk through things. Please let me know of the ones you notice. (I can't fix the Man who gives you your map)
⦁ DON’T TALK TO THE GUY IN GREEN BY FALKNER. HE WALKS YOU INTO THE WALLS AND THE ONLY WAY OUT IS BY GAMESHARK WALK THROUGH WALLS CODE.
⦁ In the Ruins of Alph, you can enter the caves that are normally unaccessible until you get HM Surf. For your own sake early in the game, don't go in them. I'll fix this in the next release.
⦁ In Fuscia City, a fan has pointed out that walking in the warden’s house you cannot exit, please be weary of this and the entire second region considering it is very much not polished or finished. You may explore the region, but keep your saves updated FREQUENTLY to avoid losing your save. Only some parts of the second region are near-finished aforementioned in the post.
