What is Pokémon Saga? It’s a series of hacks that I’m making to create a perfect game for every region. There’s going to be 4 hacks, and they will be named DarkViolet, Jade, HeartGold, and Platinum, and they’ll take place in the Kanto, Hoenn, Johto (and later Kanto), and Sinnoh regions.
This is DarkViolet, and it takes place in the Kanto region. Basically, it follows the plotline of Pokémon Red/Blue/FireRed/LeafGreen, which is why I’m not going to bother explaining the plot because I’m sure you already know what it is. Believe it or not, I’ve had this whole “Pokemon Saga” concept for quite a while, but I’ve had to restart a few times due to glitches or me not being able to decide how I’m going to do this. Remember, “Pokemon ShadowAmethyst” and “Pokemon Saga – Adventure”? Yeah, this is basically the same thing. Back when this was called ShadowAmethyst, the graphical style was kinda weird looking… it was R/S/E overworlds mixed with HG/SS tiles. Bleh. But I’ve thought things over, and I’ve decided to use FR/LG tiles. When I start working on “Pokemon Saga – Emerald”, I will also use FR/LG style graphics.
*FR/LG style graphics, but with HG/SS architectural design
*All Gym Leaders have new teams (except Brock)
*All Elite Four members have new teams
*Kanto music in it’s original key
*The Team Rocket plot is slightly expanded. You can expect to see what Archer and Arianna were doing 3 years before HG/SS.
*Sevii Islands, w00t!
*Kanto Dex expanded 200 Pokemon. Or at least, that’s what I would like to do, but I’m still figuring out how to hack the R/S Pokedex while leaving the National one alone.
*200 Pokemon are obtainable before the Elite Four. Once you beat the Elite Four, 386 Pokemon are obtainable. The majority of the Pokemon that can’t be found in the wild can be obtained from a special Gift Shop.
*De-capitalization, in the style of the 4th Gen games (that means Pokemon names are still in CAPS)
*Some of the R/B/FR/LG dialogue is kind of odd… so they might get changed around a little bit
*Optional battles with your pseudo-rival, Red/Green. They’ll have the starter that is weak to yours, while Blue has the starter that has the advantage over yours. Say, if you’re playing as Red and you picked Charmander, then Blue will have Squirtle, and Green will have Bulbasaur.
*Battle Frontier, located on one of the Sevii Islands… haven’t decided which one yet XD!
*I don’t care about nostalgia. Therefore, I will do my best to make this game actually seem like a modern Pokemon game.
*Some more stuff… whatever
