  • Because the progress of that hack of red I was working on was so rudely halted, have an unfinished alpha version that I can actually update publicly:
    Despite what I say in my log, my team's average is not 35. It's actually 32. Cheddar, at level 50, is an outlier and should not be counted
    Due to a series of unfortunate events, I currently have no access to my computer. Because I haven't backed up my save files, I must pause working on both Green Eggs and Pasta and my untitled Red romhack.
    Sorry.

    I'm currently working on a yellow nuzlocke to pass the time though, so look out for that.
    Christ midgame Kalos has a bad of a level curve as Johto.

    That doesn't really fix how easy that part of the game is. You fight a bunch of trainers, rivals, flare members, and gym leaders, all of whom use Pokemon around 30-40. The level curve comes to a complete halt, as if it's trying to give you buffer time to pull ahead in levels, before finally picking back up... Around the 6th gym, when your Pokemon are well above the curve.

    GSC's level curve at least has the excuse of "hey you can do these 4 gyms in almost any order". Kalos's curve kinda just fucks off somewhere before remembering that "oh hey there's supposed to be an illusion of challenge."

    It might be easy still, but you shouldn't be 10 levels over the curve with the Exp. Share off. That's how far I got above the curve at that point in my initial playthrough with the Exp. Share on the entire time and a lot of optional battles so I could afford ALL the clothes!
    Bruh why are there just plates, items created by Arceus to control the elements, just lying around in random places across Kalos. There's a sky plate just chilling next to a dude rambling about rain dance
    You'd think X-Scissor would have an increased crit rate but no.

    I always feel like X-Scissor has an increased crit rate even though it doesn't? And other people do too from what I've seen? I swear I remember it having it when I was a kid? Something something mandela effect something something berenstein universe mumble mumble

    These are real Mandela Effect hours :( I feel like I've had the revelation of "heyyy, what do you mean ? ? ? there's no crit rate boost?"

    The Mandela effect should have hit me when I put x scissor in my wip hack, but it didn't. It only kicked in when I watched a video about the bug type.
    Why are Phanphy and Donphan's movesets so... different?
    Hydrochlorinate
    Hydrochlorinate
    Level up. Phanphy has exclusively normal moves (and rollout and charm), while Donphan has a good mix of ground, normal and dark moves.

    Oh, huh! That’s really weird

    I think the idea is that Phanpy is baby and only knows how to Tackle and stuff, while Donphan is big boy who can Earthquake and stuff. Nothing drastically different from Caterpie vs. Butterfree, except that the baby actually gets a full moveset and the evolution happens many levels later. It actually happens for quite a few lines, though usually to a lesser extent.
    Making a gen 1 replacement hack right now, and I just realized that there are only 4 ground type pokemon in the entire game, including evolutions. Guess who gets to change some pokes to dual types

    Mm... Golem, Sandslash, Dugtrio, Marowak, Rhydon lines... The Nidos get a Ground secondary... I'm missing one. Phanpy's Jo- ONIX
    Most Gen I Ground types don't feel like Ground? The Golem/Rhydon lines and Onix are more Rock. The Nidos are more Poison. Sandslash doesn't get any Ground moves through level in RBY. Cubone... I know Bone Club and etc are Ground, but they're bones. Ghost vibes. Diglett and Dugtrio are it.

    I meant after the replacements, there's only like 6 mons. THe diglett line is being replaced by the drillbur one, the cubone one by golett, and the sandshrew line is being replaced by phanphy and donphan. That's only 6 pokemon, so I decided to give Carbink, who's replaceing Onix, and Dunsparce, who's replacing kangaskhan, a secondary ground typing.

    Ahh, alright, that makes sense! :0 Ground type Dunsparce sounds neat, and it fits well with the whole "using its tail to burrow into the earth" thing mentioned in its dex entries! It learns enough Ground moves through level up that I'm honestly surprised they never did anything with that eventually in canon, too, even just as a regional form or something. Hopefully your additions will make it a little more usable!
