Pokémon Unown v0.9 (Hack of FireRed)


Introduction

This hack "Pokémon Unown" is based on Pokémon FireRed which focuses on creating a more natural and immersive randomized experience. Battles and encounters are always "unknown", which attempts to bring the unpredictability of competitive battling into the Kanto story.

All wild encounters, trainer battles, and gift Pokémon are thematically randomized on the fly. This means that the Pokémon power level and types are derived from the vanilla engine. Unlike most other randomizers, you cannot encounter fully evolved or legendary Pokémon in route 1. Naturally, you cannot fish/surf a fire type. We've also overhauled a number of features to make them thematically random including: Mixed Generations of Starters, Pikachu, Unown, Trades, Gifts, Overworld Pokémon, and added a number of new Mega forms.

As a result, the hack should be very replayable, much more challenging than vanilla, and with more controlled entropy compared to most other randomizers.

This project wouldn't be possible without the outstanding work of the DPE and CFRU.
