Default Pokemon Rocket Strike

Introduction:
This is a Hack of Pokemon FireRed US.
Hey, I'm AmazingCharizard aka RocketLeader(best name ever btw since it's true )and this is my first attempt at Pokemon Rom hacking. So please have this in mind as you play this hack that I've tried my best since the idea of being a member of Team Rocket has always fascinated me.
I'm still waiting for Game Freak to hire me and grant you to give you what probably everyone of us wants to do. But since I'll need to get my degree at university first I'm on my own for now...

Status: 100% completed

So what're the differences to Pokemon FireRed? Here's a little list:
-Play on the side of Team Rocket!
-Catch over 380 Pokemon, most of them catchable before the Pokemon League!
-Slight evolution changes for a few Pokemon: For example, Trapinch evolves at Level 30 instead of 35, but Vibrava will evolve at level 50.
-Relive Kanto as it should've been(at least for me)with new areas to explore and new challenges awaiting you!
-BW-Pokemon-Sprites!
-Gen 4 & 5 Pokemon!
-Pokemon which acquired special circumstances to evolve(like trading or happiness) will evolve more easily through level up(or evolution stones).
-Much humor and many references to real life happenings and characters! Some may like it, some won't, that's only up to you.
-Your adventure is far from over after the Pokemon League!
-The story has been noticably changed(isn't that obvious anyway?)!
-Difficulty has been increased as I think that the original FireRed(and by the way most of the Pokemon games are way too easy)lacks difficulty!
-Meet familar faces from other Pokemon games who'll be either friend or foe(rather foe, better than if it was the opposite, right?)!

Very important: Read this before you play!
-Make sure to get the National Pokedex or most of your Pokemon won't evolve! You get the National Pokedex pretty early in the beginning.
-Some road blocks will ony vanish if you got the right badge! For example the policeman at Route 107 will only disappear if you got 2 badges(Sometimes you need to leave and come back.
-Talk to everyone. Seriously, even if you don't like to hear(read) what Youngster Joey has to say about his Rattata, listen to the people. I hope you won't regret this.
-Open your eyes.Pokemon is about discovering on your own. When you've spent at least a month and you still can't progress then feel free to post your problem here.

After the main story: If you want to continue you need to have captured at least 60 Pokemon! and then talk to you-will-know-who. It doesn't matter if they're originally from Kanto or from other regions!

FAQ & Walkthrough: Check out these links, it may help you when you got a question or can't progress further:

UPDATE: So, for those people who couldn't or didn't want to to play using Vizzed, I've uploaded an IPS-patch. Download this patch and use it on a clean Firered 1.0 rom (which you have to get yourself of course). If you've played on Vizzed and still would like to do so, you still can. Happy playing, guys & girls!

Screenshots:: You find a few in the Attachments and in the spoiler. I don't want to spoil too much so the screenshots hopefully won't tell you that much about the plot itself.

Closing Notes:
Update: For those wondering why I uploaded an IPS patch after all this time - Because Vizzed was sued by Nintendo, people who didn't play it until now can't download and play the game through Vizzed. If you played on Vizzed before and didn't remove anything then you should still be able to play Rocket Strike as usual.
This hack was mainly created because of a Rom Hacking competition so I rushed some things, I guess. There're probably some little errors like text not disappearing but I hope you'll look at the total package...and deal with it.
So if you like my work I'd kindly ask you to recommend this game to your friends and rate this so I'll get famous...I mean, so that Team Rocket will rule all over the world.
Prepare for an epic adventure.
And if you get stuck you may post it here, I hope that I can assist if you need help.
Thank you for your attention!
Yours truly,
Me

It Would be a good idea to create an new main character... because the character RED is very noticable as the good guy...

You could just give him a new palette instead of being red/blue/yellow, he can be black with a silver backpack or something...

it could be neat.

Like this:


I simply recolored the main sprite to match palette 6 in FR... im sure there is a similar palette for emerald... (its the same colors as a rocket grunt)

Hey, I thought about that...well, for me, Red is a badass, and not a good one
but then I would have to change the trainer sprites as well, therefore I did not touch it (yet)...

Thank you. It probably would
But it wouldn't look good when I replaced the player'S OW with a rocket but without changing trainer pass/trainer sprite in battle. If I knew how to do this, I would have.

If you just started it once then the game is saved on your computer. Then you can play it anywhere, anytime If you can't find, just use Windows Search and look in the Vizzed folder(s) on your pc.
