It may not come as a surprise if you’re following me but I love Pokemon. So for those of you interested, I’ve started a side project of making a rom hack for pokemon red. The goal of the hack is to fix up all of the problems with the original red and blue (better pixel art, more balanced Pokemon, etc) while still keeping the feel of the original games. If you’ve ever played the 25th anniversary hack of Earthbound 0, it’s basically the same idea.

This is just a side project so updates will be slow, but you can learn more about the project here:

Worked a bit more on the rom hack today.

One thing that always annoyed me about red and blue is how they handled water pokemon. Although it’s the most common type (32 of the original 151 Pokemon are water type), The only water pokemon you can catch before your 5th badge are Vaporeon and Magikarp!

So I’ve added a simple event in Pewter city that will allow the player to catch a Poliwag before their battle with Brock. That way you’re not screwed if you chose charmander as your starter.
