Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I’m Pokemoner. Today, We will play Pokemon Crystal Ultimate by Major Agnostic! It’s a New GBC Hack ROM and based on Pokemon Crystal.
It’s tweaked too much and making the game harder and better. It’s playable in English. And now, Let’s play!
The goal of this hack is to be the ultimate Pokemon Crystal experience for fans: same story, same Pokemon, same locations, but the game is more playable, balanced, and challenging. Just about everything is viable now due to a thorough revision of moves, learn sets, base stats, and Pokemon availability. The game’s challenge has been increased by revamping the level curve and adding to trainer parties’ custom moves, DVs, and stat experience, as well as providing a greater variety and number of Pokemon to their teams.
More or less empty locations in the original game such as Ilex Forest, Ice Path, and Victory Road now have extra trainers and items. He has also taken some liberties to spice up and rebalance gameplay, such as type changes to a few Pokemon, a couple of regular-shiny palette swaps to reflect this, and Steel now normally resisting Poison moves.
As well, all 251 Pokemon can be obtained in-game (in the full-release) and all Johto Pokemon can be obtained before reaching the Pokemon League (except for legendaries and the starters that you didn’t choose). On top of all of this, there are many quality of life upgrades as well as brand new features that improve playability without compromising the feel of the original game! These include new music and softer night versions for all outdoor themes, Hold B to run, an improved move tutor (and a new gen 1 tutor that will be accessible in the final release) that also teaches Rock Slide, a move deleter in Goldenrod, a brand new move reminder in Blackthorn, and darkened sprites to better match the night graphics.
Additionally, He removed the badge boost and 25% AI chance to fail status moves, TMs are reusable, elemental stones can be purchased and used to evolve former trade evolution Pokemon, the economy has been revised to provide more challenge and variety while still being fair, the shiny odds have been increased and shinies always have high DVs, in-game trades have been revised, many bugs have been fixed, etc.
The following is a list of bug fixes, including those ‘bugs’ that were intentional:
Environmental sprites (such as water and flowers) now animate when textboxes are open, like in Gold/Silver
The artificial delay during saving has been removed, so the process is now much faster
HP bar no longer drains slowly for high-HP Pokemon
BRN/PAR/PSN now increase catch rate and FRZ/SLP further increase it, as intended
Dragon Fang now has its original intended effect of boosting Dragon-type moves by 10%
Moon, Love and Fast Balls now work as intended
Belly Drum no longer raises Attack despite HP being too low
Berserk Gene’s confusion now works properly
Fixed Magikarp size calculation errors and Lake of Rage Magikarp are now larger than others, rather than smaller

Fixed Thick Club and Light Ball stat rollover glitches
Perish Song and Spikes no longer leave a Pokémon with 0 HP without fainting
Defence-lowering moves no longer reduce the stat after breaking a Substitute

When using Mind Reader/Lock-On, all moves now hit the enemy during Fly/Dig
Teleport can now fail if the user has a lower level than the opponent, as intended
NPCs can now cure Nightmare and confusion
Fixed AI’s false assumption about CheckTypeMatchup
Fixed grammar mistakes for Twins
Fixed “Smart AI” bug where Mean Look was encouraged when the user was badly poisoned, rather than the enemy
Present’s damage works correctly in link battles
Reflect/Light Screen can no longer cause def/sp def to wrap around
Fixed glitch where moves with a 100% secondary effect chance had a 1/256 chance to not trigger it
Catching a Transformed Pokemon that is not Ditto (aka Mew) no longer yields a Ditto
Evolution stone compatibility is reported correctly
Rocket Executives and Scientists now play the Rocket theme during battle
This game is a GBC Hack ROM. It’s a Beta in English! It’s playable in Pokemon Crystal Storyline so I add it into the Completed category!
