Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I'm Pokemoner. We will play Pokemon Awesome Version XD by hinkage. It's a GBA Hack ROM and based on Pokemon Fire Red. If you actually play Pokemon Awesome so you can play this game because it's better.
Your starter is Snorlax, you have a new story, a new region, and more fun features. It's actually awesome Hack ROM. It's still a beta when I was making this video. Anyway, Let's play!
-Two versions--one has edited Pokémon types/sprites/matchup chart, and the other doesn't ("normal"). The reason being that some of the sprite edits (palette swaps) are hideous, and no doubt some won't like them. % = feature is not in "normal" version.
--% Type changes only effect the final evolution. I like to think of it as something horrible having happened that causes Pokémon to twist into these abominations upon evolving.
--% 37 changed Pokémon, see a detailed list below.
--% Changed type matchup chart, see below.
-NO P/S split. I thought about it, and I like how the Advanced metagame works. However, I did change Dark to physical and Ghost to special.
-% Ghost-types cannot be hit by physical moves, except Dark. That's because they're so malicious they break the rules, or something. As Masuda says, "Haha, I don't really know XD"
-15 new moves, see a detailed list below.
-Many existed moves buffed, see a detailed list below.
-All new routes, towns, cave and forest dungeons.
-All new characters (but not new sprites. Please understand).
-Sideways stairs!!! YAAYYYYY!!!!!!!
-Some "new" music, aka music inserted from other games.
-Much cheaper items, but you have to pay a sales tax.* You also earn less for winning battles.
-You can steal select items from Poke Marts, but you run the risk of getting banned for life. If you get burned by Scald a lot, I wouldn't try it. Of course, you could just save before each attempt, but that's cheating. You're not a thief AND a cheater, are you?
-Pokémon Centers have a $500 copay, but the price can be reduced if you have insurance.
--Mommy (not your mother) will always heal you for free, but you still won't be able to use the Storage System if you go to her.
--*If you blackout, you'll be healed for free. That's what your taxes pay for.
--Each Center has a pharmacy in the basement.
-4 difficulty modes - easy, normal, hard, and conductor. These are explained in-game. They just change Trainer/wild Pokemon levels.
-All random Trainers are optional, except in dungeons.
-Rival and Leader fights are 2v2. Rival are 1v1 if you only have 1 mon, but for Leaders you must have at least 2.
-Random Trainers quote song lyrics at you. Maybe it will remind you of a song you'd forgotten, or introduce you to a new one if you find the lyrics interesting.
-No HMs. You cut trees by jumping up and down like the captain in LGPE. You break rocks by punching them (duh). For surfing, you get a surfboard that just happens to look like you're riding a Pokemon. Again, please understand. Waterfall I haven't figured out yet.

Poison 2x on Water
Bug 1x on Poison
Normal, Fighting, Flying, Rock, Ground, Steel, Bug, Poison 0x on Ghost.
(a few other changes planned for later)
Q: Why change type matchups?
A: It makes sense for Poison to beat Water; for Ghosts to be completely unaffected by physical moves. The latter especially is cool--it sounds broken at first, but it really isn't. Also it's a fun change. A case could be made for Poison beating Normal and Bug, while being resisted by Dark, too. But that comes later.
Q: Will there always be 2 versions?
A: No. I really love the reimagined/warped Pokemon, so I'd like that to be the definitive version. But, if enough people hate them, I'll continue with just the vanilla mons.
2 Gyms, 3 towns, 4 routes, 2 dungeons.
