Double Up Delevelled is a vanilla+ rom hack of Emerald that applies the standard Battle Engine upgrades while also changing to double battles and making pokemon stats independent of level. It is a new challenge on an old framework that should make an interesting replay.

  • Four neutral Natures have been altered to give two positive and two negative stat changes
  • Natural Gift now acts as Physical Hidden Power and replaces the Roar TM
  • Unown learn Natural Gift

  • Pokedex shows Shiny sprites
  • Trying to leave Oldale town before Rival Fight crashes the game
  • Leaving the Move Swap menu without learning a move puts the pointer on the menu of the last pokemon that used Move Swap
  • "Nickname this Zigzagoon" shows the starter pokemon name.
  • Morphed Castform has no sprite
  • Pokeballs will sometimes fail in Double Battles, unknown why.
  • Battle Debug menu is available by pressing Select, useful for seeing stats and Stat Stages. Use at your own risk
  • Game Corner Man gives continuous charity
  • Youngster Calvin on 102 is rematchable
  • One of the key features of Double Up Delevelled is that Level is no longer a factor when determining a Pokemon's stats, with the exception of HP. Now Stats are at a set value based on Base Stat, IVs, and Nature. They will be altered as EVs are gained.
  • The level is now more a representation of the state of training, as it still affects the moves a Pokemon knows, the effects of level-based moves (such as Seismic Toss), when a Pokemon can evolve, and does make them slightly tougher increasing Max HP by 1 per level gained.
  • As of version 2.11, damage also no longer scales based off level.
