sup. vega, right? very hard. makes you go :(. also: lots of fakemon are only postgame. also :(.

what if... not anymore?

This is a "386" hack of Vega. Everything is available before postgame. A lot of Pokémon have also been modified to make them more usable, because wow, a lot of the postgame Vega Fakemon are pretty awful. Some have new abilities from Gen IV+, and generally things are more accessible - the fire starter no longer needs to wait to evolve to get Flamethrower, for example.

Difficulty has also been addressed - the level curve is way less steep, leaders are a lot more reasonable. All that good stuff. No more gym 1 Shuckle. These are all in the documents included.

TMs are also generally more available, and there are a bunch of QoL changes like the Dept. Store selling Sun and Moon stones before postgame and the Elite 4 selling Revives and Full Restores, plus an NPC there who sells all the TMs.

Other things of note:
- HMs are less bad.
- Pokémon that got updated sprites in Procyon/Deneb received them here, too. Which is nice, because good lord, the original Infiris sprite.
- Trades are edited.
- Obedience levels have been changed so the trades are usable.
- In Seafin City, you can receive the Procyon/Deneb starter that's weak to the one you picked.
- The move relearner is free.
- Grass has been added to Junopsis City, and several locations like Perimeter Labs and the Tower of Darkness now have encounters.
- All the puzzles in the original are untouched. Sorry.
- TM19 Poison Leaf has been replaced with Drill Run, TM49 FeatherDance has been replaced with Roost, and the Dig tutor is now Superpower.

Thinks a bit too much, but loves their friends. Owns an impressive amount of guillotine-themed clothing.
This is SO fun, I'm currently pre-gym 2 and it's already such a great time.

Despite loving the outdoors, the Neb Pokémon has more introverted hobbies. As a result it has a socially awkward temperament.
This is a great idea. Having the first gym leader not use a Shuckle alone makes this an improvement. I'll play this right away!
