Who I Am and My Past
Oh Hi There, Welcome to my Team Thread! My name is Zerks and I need some assistance.
I been in hacking for a long time. Ever since I saw Pokemon Quartz, Ive been wanting to create something new, something exciting. I seriously need you guys to help me with this thing.Ive been into making stories for Poke-Hacks for about as long as Ive been here and Pokecommunity: 3 Years. And during that time ive seen and played many good hack betas and finished versions. And Ive seen so many hacks Die. Including mine. And I dont mean to offend anyone but. Ive had people who joined at times where they have gotten too busy to help, due to personal matters. While I say that's a good reason to drop out fora time being. Please let me know if anything important is coming up before you join. This help me out alot with keeping everyone's work consistent and clean.Furthermore, I'd like to talk about this hack. Like I said, its been redun in story, concept and even the region map., Ive began drawing a large region called Terratropi, a two-in-one region that had alot of Mid-evil references in it. Then It became Neuvo, a region with alot of ancient history with it. Needless to say, it didnt take off either. And now with the same Region map as Neuvo, and with a new concept. Pokemon Funjin Spinel/Ruby is back again. I wanted to bring in the basic concept of Pokemon, but add a new feeling to it. To make it feel that YOU are the trainer inside the story-driven world. That YOU decide where to go and what pokemon you have. let's work together to make this hack take off and see the light of day!

Hack Info
Name: Pokemon Funjin Spinel/Purple Meteor
ROM Base: Fire Red (U)

Q and A

Q: Why did you move the thread here?
A: Mainly because I want to try somewhere new, also I just feel that it will help out alot more with getting some attention for the hack

Q: Ugh! Why does your hack have Fakemon!
A: Because honestly, Fakemon are kinda cool to put into hacks, as well as new regions and trainers. But for this one, Im allowing everyone to submit an idea for a fakemon to have some user input, BUT not a whole lot. We dont want to overload the team.

Q: Why Pokemon Fire Red, I-I-I Thought You'd Do Ruby.
A: We'll be doing FireRed. Its been months for me to decide what ROM Base would be used. And Honestly, I do say I want to do Emerald or Ruby, but FireRed's Tiles are Better looking in some ways.

The Plot
Welcome to the Region of Crest. Located off the coast of Kanto. Its a very small region Possibly just an Island but no, its a Region a little small, but its a Region with its own Professor and League. Enter Jewel, a 16 year-old girl with a hair of Sapphire. And her childhood friend Chris. Both are students of the renowned Professor Banzai, a Pokemon Prof. in the line of Pokemon Abilites. He has 3 stations including his main lab in Tropi Town, located in the area below the Southern Grassland. He hands the two a Pokedex for the entire Region, and some Pokeballs, as well as the choice of Treeko, Mudkip, or Torchic. But before he could give the two trainers some beginners advice, the good Professor was taken away by a Woman in a Purple Jacket, and Black Cap, as well as one of the starters (the one that was left behind). Chasing after her, you find out that she is part of a troupe called Team Blacklust. You defeat her and win back the professor who then tells you to go and try to enter the Crest League, and from there on, Jewel and Chris make the journey to the north.
The Idea of the Story
Well, the idea mainly came from an inspiration from Anime, past Pokemon titles, and various forms of imagination. I feel as if some hacks have an over the top plot with Light and Dark and all this and that. I felt that maybe if I combined the simple plot of Pokemon with some small complex plot ideas from various forms of story writing, such as Drama, Comedy etc, then maybe this will open the door for hackers to focus on simular plots.

I'm not 100% sure yet but I might want to join sometime.
Hacking career: I only started hacking Winter (or Summer in America) last year. But since then, I'm way better at it. I'm currently working on my own hack, but I've never been in a team before.

Sorry I got no proof of my work but my game is up to its 3rd gym and in my opinion it's not too horrible.

What I can do:
Mapping - I can make OK maps so far but nothing mind-blowing.
Scripting - Again I can't do anything mind-blowing.
I can't sprite for ****
I FINALLY WORKED OUT HOW TO MAKE AND INSERT WORLD MAPS so if you need me for that I can do it.
I can't make title screens but if someone else makes one I'm pretty close to learning how to insert one.

I'm in a completely different times one to everyone (except some Japanese and some Russians) so I can't really do instant communications. But I do have Dropbox.
Another problem is I'm still at school so I don't really have that much time. Only about 5 hours per week, sometimes more.

Again, I'm still not 100% sure, since I have such a tight schedule, but I'll let you know if I do want to join.
