Playable On: Mobile, Pc, Emulator


This is a bit of an experiment-hack that consists of the base Pokemon Emerald experience, such that all of the mainline mandatory battles are playable, but with a party size of 8 pokemon not only on the player's side but on enemy trainer parties as well. Along with this, some QoL features that seemed like a must added, as well as all initial gym leader's teams to feature a full 8 member party, together with elite 4 and champions.

List of Features

  • Party size of up to 8 members on both player and enemy parties.
  • New 4/4 party menu layout.
  • Double battles supported.
  • Gen 6+ Exp. Share can be found in the main character's room.
  • Custom gym leader, elite 4, and champion 8-member teams.
  • Reusable TMs.
  • Indoors running.
  • New music on gym leader battles.
  • Starter Tyrogue along with the usual starter of choice.
  • Hall of Fame supports an 8-sized party.
  • Single full party bug catcher at the very beginning that was used on testing, but decided to leave into the final game
  • Full 386 pokemon catchable.
  • Physical/Special split added.
  • Tuned down a bit the Exp. Share. This results in a slower level curve and alleviates overpowering the full party.
  • Trade evolutions are now all friendship evolutions.
  • Event items are obtainable from player's PC upon starting a new game.
  • Expanded item pocket to hold up to 50 items.
  • Forgettable HM's.
  • Evolution stones sold on Petalburg pokemart, heart scales sold on Fallarbor pokemart.
  • Buffed Cut && Rock Smash. Rock Smash now also lowers defense every time.
Known Issues & Bugs:
  • Slight graphical glitches on the party menu.
  • Battle Frontier and postgame are largely untested so probably broken somewhere, due to them being out of the scope of this project.
  • Some emulators might produce freezes at the beginning, or cause a black screen when starting champion Wallace's battle. Retroarch mgba core seems to mostly run the game just fine.
