  • Added custom shinies for numerous Pokemon, full list can be found further downDarkster also made a video showcasing all the new custom shiny sprites here with timestamps!

  • Shiny odds updated from 1/4096->2/4096, Shiny Charm boost updated from 3/4096->6/4096
  • Safari Zone is now treated as a normal area (do not need to use bait/rock/Safari Balls etc) and has a new area accessible with Surf. This area has a raid den that includes the Toxic Chain members,  Moltres/Moltres-G static encounter, and some new grass encounters.
    • Dev note: it was a bit weird for Moltres to be accessible much further into the game compared to the other Legendary Birds (even if it is a R/B/Y reference), so this resolves that and allows for a more rewarding legendary to encounter in Victory Road. 
    • Safari Zone being another area enables DexNav usage, which wasn’t possible before.
  • New signature items:
    • Electirizer – When held by Electivire, boosts Fighting moves by 50%
    • Magmarizer – When held by Magmortar, Fire moves that deal damage lower target’s Speed by 1 Stage, and inflicts tar on the target.
      • Note: if target is already afflicted with tar or is at -6 speed, the Magmarizer effect will not trigger

    • Burnt Seed – When held by Sunflora, boosts Fire moves by 50%

  • Dragon Dance Tutor is now in Victory Road.
  • The Pokemon icons are now animated in the Summary Screen moveset menu and Nickname Screen 

Quality of Life Changes

  • Replaced Sound type (Stereo, Mono) in Options menu to Music On/Off. Sound Type will be defaulted to Stereo. Toggling Double Battles is now also available in Options menu.
    • The Music option can toggle the background music, sound effects like cries and attack sounds will still be on. It does not persist through saves so you will have to toggle it off after resetting if so desired. Changes to music setting will only take place after a scene transition (going into a battle, changing maps, etc)
  • Added second page to Options menu that displays game mode information, and an option that allows you to change R Button Mappings (Dexnav, Bag, Pokemon menu)

  • Improved Vermilion Gym Puzzle
    • The bottom right-most trash can and top left-most trash can are always the switches. Pressing the wrong trash can also doesn’t reset the switches.

  • Now when redeeming Care Package cheat, if the player is already in the middle of the game they will receive care packages that they’ve missed.
  • Quicker HP Bars – HP Bars move at a constant, faster rate regardless of their HP count

TM Changes

  • There has been a large overhaul in the TM/Move tutor list. The main purpose of this is for more convenience (trying to lump more useful moves in TMs rather than tutors since TMs are more accessible), to make more sense with game progression, and also to have most of the Hardcore/Restricted Banned moves as a part of Move Tutors so that the experience is less jarring.

Because of this, we’ve decided to make the unfortunate decision to revert these Pokemon to their original typing.

  • Added Hisuian Pokemon, and new Radical Red exclusive Seviian forms
    • Pokemon cannot normally evolve to Hisuian Pokemon in Kanto. However, there are options to receive Hisuian Eggs from an Egg Giver in Cerulean City and Vermillion City. These Pokemon will either be Hisuian Pokemon, or Pokemon with Hisuian Potential and can therefore evolve to their Hisuian counterparts. Otherwise, you can evolve Pokemon to their Hisuian forms when you’re in the post-game Sevii Islands. It is also worth noting some of the Hisuian Pokemon were commissioned before the official Shiny palettes were released, so they may have incorrect shiny forms. 
    • Seviian Forms are new custom Radical Red regional forms. There’s at least one from every single Generation and many of them have custom typing. Trainers in the main game will not have access to them, and you can only receive one before the post game (An egg given to you after beating Erika) to ensure that it’s not too jarring for players who dislike custom Pokemon. They can otherwise be found in post game areas. 
  • Added Several new post-game areas
    • Gain a ticket to first three Sevii Islands by talking to the npc in Route 16 house, and defeating all the foes she advises

    • Some Gym Leaders and other familiar folks may be looking to rematch once you obtain the Z-Power Ring
  • Added Following Pokemon
    • Viridian City Pokemon Center NPC will go up to you to activate Follower Pokemon 
    • Only certain Pokemon are able to follow you! There just isn’t enough time and space to insert sprites for all Pokemon. However, there are a sizable amount, and even certain Megas are able to follow you as well
    • The game goes through your party and picks the first eligible Pokemon that can be a follower
  • New “scaled” randomizer (name still tentative) to replace the “expert” randomizer that no one really played. 
    • Essentially you’ll only be able to encounter Pokemon that make sense for that point in the game; so before Brock you’re only able to see first stage Pokemon, after Misty you’ll start seeing some second evo Pokemon + weak third stage evos, etc etc.
    • Fixed Randomizer being scuffed (many repeats of same species, or moves/abilities on its corresponding randomizers) 
    • Hisuian and custom Seviian mons accessible in the randomizer
  • Now have the option to choose any Starter from any Generation (inspired by Inclement Emerald; Ty Buffel Saft!)

    • Infinite Repel – fight the lass in Viridian Forest
    • Time Changer – answer one of the Oak aides’ questions in Oak’s Lab
  • PLA’s Frostbite has replaced Freeze status. Note, that it’s still called “freeze”.

New Freeze:

  • Freeze inflicts 1/16 damage to the afflicted Pokemon at the end of turn, and also halves Special Attack (special burn)
  • Frostbite effects are twice as likely to occur in hail (I.e Ice Beam 10% chance to freeze becomes 20% in Hail) 
  • Frostbite inflicts 1/8 damage to the afflicted Pokemon at the end of turn in Hail instead of 1/16. Thick Fat Pokemon take 1/32 damage from Frostbite in Hail
  • Attributes from freeze that carry over: Ice Pokemon are immune to freeze, if hit by a fire move/scald when frozen you thaw, frozen Pokemon that use Scald, Flame Wheel, Flare Blitz, Pyro Ball, Sacred Fire …, get thawed out
  • Moves that have added Freeze effect added to them:
    • Frost Breath has a 30% chance to Freeze on top of its current effect
    • Bitter Malice added, 30% chance to Freeze 
  • Quality of Life Changes:
    • Portable PC in the Start Menu after unlocking DexNav! 
    • Move Relearner now party menu option (like in Pokemon Legends Arceus!)

    • In-game cheat code if you talk to the NES in your home:

      • “Woyaopp” to unlock Rare Candies if you talk to the youngster in Viridian City walking around in the grass. Rare Candies cannot level you past the level cap. Essential cheat for those who don’t want to grind or just like saving time, especially on subsequent playthroughs or for streamers.
      • “SO2Toxic” for care packages, very useful when replaying the game;  you’ll get free item drops for everything you’re basically allowed to receive up to that point (from raid rewards, and thiefing wild Pokemon)
    • Added a Lorelei forecast (in your first time fighting E4, if you talk to the champ in the making guy he’ll indicate which Pokemon he saw Lorelei with. Lorelei is notorious for ending runs because of the differences between her two possible teams so this should help out.)
  • Now automatically get the Flame Body step boost for eggs in min grinding (doesn’t stack both) 
  • Low HP Beep in Red Health removed
  • Nature Changer Nurse has option to Gender Swap,view the current Level Cap, and to view the game modes you’re currently playing.
  • Can now use the SELECT button to switch Pokemon in party menu
  • Removed catching tutorial, and oak’s tutorial in first rival battle
  • Using Rare Candy when Pokemon is at the level cap can evolve it (for instance, if a rare candy is used on a level 100 grovyle it will evolve into sceptile) 
  • Small revamp to Raid Battles –
    • Raid Dens don’t reset on following Day. Now, simply throw Wishing Pieces to force a respawn. Pewter City NPC who gave you dynamax band will give you 5, and you should get more from Raid Dens itself. If you trigger a Yamper Event (have Yamper as your following Pokemon) in Vermillion City, the fan club lady will give you 5 Wishing Pieces too. They can often be given as Raid Rewards as well. This along with Time Changer should remove the need to change your clock, for more convenience.
  • Victory Road puzzle no longer resets after you leave
  • Can now fish in the backyard of Cerulean City for some additional earlier encounters (used to be blocked by fence)
  • Added Time Box in Start Menu so you can see in-game time
  • Puzzle Battles – you can view all 6 of the opponents team, and choose 3 of a given team to fight them. There’s a specific solution to winning – half of it is choosing the correct Pokemon and lead, the other half is just making the right plays in battle.

  • Route 13, Route 16, Route 12 Route 18 have mandatory trainer mini bosses with weather in the overworld.

Frenzy Plant – 160 BP, 4 PP, 100 Acc recharge move but does not need to recharge on kill. 80% chance to badly poison.

Blast Burn – 160 BP, 4 PP, 100 Acc recharge move but does not need to recharge on kill. 60% chance to burn.
