Default Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal

People have been asking where to find this. Only place I've really found the ROM is rapidshare so I made a patch instead.

What this is, is a poor translation of Pokémon Crystal that holds some hilarious text and terrible translation. It's popular for LPs because of the dialogue itself.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Please do not ask for a ROM or ask why the game doesn't do anything when you open it up in Adobe! You need to find the rom titled Pocket Monsters Crystal Glass (Chinese) (Unl) on your own, literally just copy and paste the dump name and find it on Google or something, and then take the .ips I have provided and use the program Lunar IPS to patch it onto the ROM file. THANK YOU!

Hack Name: (Vietnamese Crystal)
Hack of: Pocket Monsters Crystal Version (Unlicensed Chinese Version)
Dump name: Pocket Monsters Crystal Glass (Chinese) (Unl) [C][a1].zip
Type: Translation

Screenshots:



Bugs:
  • LIPS told me the patch wouldn't do anything, but it seems to patch just fine. It may cause some bugs but probably not.
  • Goldenrod PokeCOMM center crashes on GBA emulators. Use a realistic GBC emu like BGB or TGB-Dual.

Download:
In the attachments.

DISCLAIMER: I do not take credit for making this hack. Just made a legal patch for it.

WELCOME! ITS ELFS WORLD!

Nice to see this back again, we used to joke about this one all the time back in high school. I remember I found it while trying to find a translated version of the Japanese Crystal so I could check out the Pokecom Center. It was hard to find one that wasn't full of Elf text though. I know at one point I found a rom that said "Pokemon Crystal 100% English NO ELFS" but then I opened it up in my emulator, and of course: "WELCOME! ITS ELFSWORLD!" and at that point I stopped looking and enjoyed the elfs.

I didn't realize its fame was known when you were in high school o_O

I knew bootlegs of it were popping up early 21st century but I actually hadn't found a ROM dump of it until around 2011. I blame Megaupload.

@Team Fail and I found a copy on Ebay and were trying to get it but it got flagged before the auction ended ;n;

Well, let's see. I graduated high school in 2007, and I know I'd seen this by at least my junior year. Maybe sophomore. I don't remember exactly. But I remember printing out a picture of Oak with the little "Welcome its elfs world" text and bringing it to band practice one day.

Always found this fascinating, and would be great to have a physical copy of it. Thanks for putting up a patch

I'll always try to find a cart of it. Also, I know that GBCAD Gameyob (GBC emulator for NDS) won't run the PokeComm center.

My only guess for this is because of how it grabs that extra bank of data that seems to be exclusive for a few GB/C games.

This is hilarious. I'd like to know exactly why they attempted to translate this in the first place.
