Hack Name: Pokémon Prototype

Hack Of: Pokémon Red

Introduction: This is a hack I have been working on for a while now, and it is coming along very nicely. Much of the game is completely redone to give you a new fresh experience, while still maintaining that traditional Pokémon game feel. An important purpose of this thread is to get lots of feedback from people on my hack. I'll ask many questions and I'm very interested in your ideas and opinions. Here's what I have so far...

Story: You are a teenager who gets his first Pokémon from a professor who lives next door, Prof. Oak. He tells you about the recent advancements made by Pokémon scientists and researchers. Scientists from Cinnabar Island have been researching an ancient Pokémon that's believed to be extinct named Mew. After studying Mew's DNA long enough, the scientists attempted to create a Prototype clone that they called Mewtwo. The Prototype destroyed the research lab on Cinnabar Island and escaped. Prof. Oak asks you and his grandson to work together to gather all the information you can and find out where Mewtwo has gone. He informs you that Team Rocket, a group of Pokémon thugs, has already began an intense investigation to track down the Prototype. If Team Rocket gets their hands on Mewtwo, they could use that power to take down anyone who gets in their way. You must assemble a powerful team of Pokémon and get to Mewtwo before Team Rocket!

Progress is slow, but here is a new custom song.

This is the gym theme, composed by Mickey-A 42.

I also reorganized the first post a bit, adding each custom song in a separate video.

I also updated the Title Screen video. The title screen now includes an 8-bit remake of the original TV theme song, "Gotta Catch 'em All"!

Alright, I had to update the title screen one more time.

This time I added in a graphic for the "Gotta catch 'em all!" logo!
I had to move the Pokemon logo up one line and move the Prototype text down one line to squeeze in the new logo, but it looks pretty cool! Check out the above post or the first post for an updated title screen video!

I have a really cool update today! I added a brand new "fusion" evolution method!
It affects a few Pokemon, and causes them to evolve when they gain a level while you have the right Pokemon in your party. Then those Pokemon fuse!


(yay for quadruple posting)
