This is a standalone patch meant to enhance and improve Pokémon Heartgold while keeping the original feel. Instead of being a complete reworking of the game, this is essentially the “Vanilla Heartgold+”, with versions exclusives fixed, trade evolutions rectified, evolution items and berries both renewable, and alternatives provided for the more luck-based encounters. A good-sized amount of dialogue has been changed, as well as a handful of NPCs being added to explain some of the more obscure mechanics, not to mention super bosses to test your mettle. The core plot is identical to vanilla Heartgold. If you want to go back to Heartgold, whether to revisit memories or make new ones, this mod is meant to help make them a little more vivid.

List of Features

  • Golden Corrals - All Pokémon are now consistently available, with Johto encounters strictly being from the Johto Dex. All evolutions that require an additional game, including both trade evolutions and Probopass, Glaceon, etc. can now be done without any such requirements.
  • Indigo Tales - All legendaries and mythicals can now be fought through regular gameplay. Similarly, the Celebi and Spiky-Eared Pichu events have been restored.
  • Worth its Weight - An overwhelming amount of wild Pokémon now hold held items.
  • A Silver Tongue - The core plot is identical, but a sizable amount of dialogue has been changed to make NPCs and bookshelves more interesting.
  • Bullion Market - All TMs, Evo items, and berries are now renewable, either buyable from Olivine and Vermillion after beating Lance or stealable from various wild Pokémon.
  • Gold Standard - Movepools have been slightly altered to allow easier access to certain egg moves and the like. However, all movepools are legal in Generation 4.
  • Executive Order - SUPERBOSSES HAVE BEEN ADDED! Meet up with Eusine, be roasted by Archer, watch Mr. Game flip the table. Post-Blue challenges have been added. Also, the first wave of trainer balancing; Proton, Eusine, and Johto Gym Leaders (but not Gyms) have been buffed.
  • National Parks and Rehabilitation - Encounters have been redone again, and many features have been rebalanced.
  • Time Enough - HP bars update up to 2x as fast. Purely aesthetic, but good QoL.
