INTRODUCTION: Hi, I'm DarkRisingGirl & This is POKEMON Dark Rising. This is my 2nd attempt to complete a full hack with a new epic story, new characters, and a new region. I've always felt the Pokemon series needed a much stronger impact with story-telling & that's what this hack is all about. Within the hack(look to features for more information) you'll encounter pokemon from all 5 generations, the newest attacks, a brand new deep storyline involving many characters with actual emotions compelling them to move foward, and last but not least, 2 regions with 16 badges & 1 final boss included. I thank you all for playing, I hope you enjoy! ^.^

The Story begins in a dream. A Pokemon suddenly appears
and chooses you, a young boy/girl, to save not only it, but the
world itself.
You awake asking yourself questions. Deciding to ignore the dream for now, you step out into your home town known as Fells in the Core Region. Your best friend, who also had the same dream, stops you at the front door to inform you of an emergency message from the town's Professor. When you encounter the professor, he quickly informs you of the disasters and climate changes occuring all over the Core Region. His workers in panic, he asks you to visit the delivery station and pick up a package for him from Prof.Oak. As you set out on this simple task, you encounter a mysterious girl who appears to know knowledge of the dream you've had about a creature name DARUGIS. After recieving the package, a powerful pokemon is within you and your friend, Pete, sight. Eager to test your early skills against a powerful pokemon, you quickly engage in a battle with it. The pokemon uses it's powerful winds, easily defeating your pokemon and knocking you out in the process. After awakening in your room, you see Pete and your mother patiently waiting for your recovery. You soon begin to realize this is the start of a journey into many mysteries and powerful pokemon you can't wait to challenge.

Oren. The Hero of the Game.
Orena. The Heroine of the Game.
Kaz. Your best friend and main rival of the Game.
Pete. Another friend of the Hero/Heroine.
Sydney. The mysterious trainer who has a past with Kayo & a connection to the legendary dragon, KYUREM. Her dragon, AXEW, is only seen in the 2nd region of the Game.
Kayo. A mysterious trainer who has a past with Sydney & the leader of the Grunts/Goons/Goonetes. His dragon, DEINO, is only seen in the 2nd region of the Game.
Dray. He proclaims himself as the "Number 1 Trainer in the World". To prove this, he's gone on a search to battle the pokemon champion, Ash Ketchum. He is also the winner of the Sinnoh League and the boyfriend of Florina.
Florina. She's an expert at computers and the girlfriend of Dray. She's the winner of the Unova League, defeating Dray in the final battle of the competition.
V. He is the general of the Grunts/Goons/Goonetes & commands DARUGIS's Puppets at the highest order. He also has a past with the player's Father and has a Son & Daughter who have become skilled Pokemon Trainers.

Gameplay Screenshots:

Battle Screenshots: (The battle backgrounds have not been inserted yet & No there's no wild Blaziken in the game. This is just to show off the DW Abilities.)

The game starts off in the Core Region & later, the Omni Region. 386 Pokemon from regions Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, & Unova, all appear in both.
There will be 16 badges in all. Each gym leader will have his/her own signature Pokemon that is not obtainable in the game.
All Original Characters & Trainers, including some
fan favorites from the anime such as:
Aside from the anime favorites, YAMI YUGI from
the YUGIOH Series will also have a short apperance
in the hack as a Gym Leader.
There will be newer generation moves. Some to note are Shadow Claw, Roost, Scald, & plenty more.
DW Abilities (Yes that includes the overused fan favorites of Drizzle Poliwag, Drought Vulpix, & Speed Boost Torchic.)
All Pokemon will learn some of their best egg moves from gen 3-5 by level up instead of breeding. (Serebii.net Pokedex was used for this information.)
Inside every pokemon center, there's a Nurse Joy & Doctor Roy. Doctor Roy will be the one to heal your POKEMON. Nurse Joy will be next to him and challenge you to a double battle along side Doctor Roy. This is helpful for exp points.

El hack se ve bien
Los minisprites los podrías cambiar, son una mezcla de FR y Ruby y no quedan muy bien en el hack.
Veo que has hecho un gran cambio gráfico, veo varios pokémons de la 4 y 5 generación.
Gráficamente esta muy bien ^^
La Historia no la leí.

Did anyone play Beta 1 yet? Let me know what you think of it as your playing.

DarkRisingGirl 25164
Has anyone Downloaded Beta 1 yet? I would like some feedback if you've played it. Thanks. Tell me what you think.
Elios 24537
hi! I think the reason why people don't comment a lot is becase here most of them don't speak english (but I do :D) so many people don't understand but personally I think it is already one of the best hacks and as you may remember I'm going to support it always, first beta was awesome and I'm sure the final realese is gonna be even better, good look and be patient, you have posted it only a few days ago.
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Thanks! ^.^

Sir Shadow 24940
Wowowow, great hack! Its really incredible! I like so much those details, it makes it special and diferent from another hacks. I can't wait to play the hack, but i'll do it when you have it finished. Please continue it, I see a lot of future in this. There is just one thing that I didn't liked so much: the mapping. If you fixes it the hack will be perfect. I mean make it a little bit more natural, if you know what i mean. Well, I don't have so much more to say about. I just want to play it and see it finished at all. Good luck!
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Thanks! The mapping will be improved in the final released. Here are some older screenshots.

I like the last actu.
Amazing scripts and maps.
Some changed sprites.
The hack is fabulous, it's amazing, i'ts the best hack.

PD: The sprite of the CHAMPION ASH is ugly.
Jon Pen. 14795
I think that it's a good hack, but blazzard's sprite is horrible, please, change it.
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Yeah, it will be changed. That sprite won't be in the final version. I'm also re-mapping a lot of areas as well.
DarkRisingGirl 25164
To show what a great job Atif is doing for the maps in Beta 1, I've decided to show the New & Improved Fells Town & Atlantic City:

The rest you'll see when I release the full version.
Moonlight 24994

WastingLight 25200
mmmm, i've been playing your hack, and i have to say that though the story is interesting, there's way too many gramatical and otographic errors, the most common being using the "your" instead of "you're", sorry to say it but that's like spitting in the face of language, you should correct that cause it will be more enjoyable for a player given the quantity of text there resides in a pokemon game. Another thing is, why did you use Red's sprite for Ash? they're too completely different characters though Ash is slightly based on Red, i think you should make a new unique Ash sprite. Apart from that, good story and development, Keep up with it!
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Thanks. I've been fixing a lot of grammar for the next release and I kinda ran out of sprite palletes for Ash. But I will try redoing him using other palletes I have.
licuki 25299
it's simple i found a bug that when you fight V after Atlantic City he gift you an ultra ball, but if you lose and go again, he do it again, i did it 3 times to test it, and yeah, you can do it always :B

Just saying. . .

great hack, im argentine and it's a great job.

An another one, when you finish touching the triangle of arceus and get the pokemon, you go out of the "house", if you enter again, you will get the pokemon again :D
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Thanks, I'll be fixing them in the final release. ^.^

The hack is about 90% complete. I'll be releasing the final version next month. The sequel to this hack is already being made and I'll be releasing a beta for that one sometime early next year.
DarkRisingGirl 25164
Long ago...There was only darkness.

Until Arceus, God of Pokemon, decided to make a new world. A world filled with
Pokemon. Arceus began creating Pokemon of different natures, types and
species on the ground, in the air, and in the water.

Arceus followers, the legends of Pokemon history, helped Arceus shape the world, Each one with
a designated job. One in particular was named Darugis. It's job was to create harmony through the Pokemon
world. Darugis was the highest in command and all of the legendaries respected it's power. Darugis soon felt superior, the recognization and sheer cockiness in it began to emit darkness, negativity, jealousy.

Darugis challanged Arceus but evidently lost. Arceus sent Darugis to the bowels of the darkness, locking it inside Pandora's Box. The few legendaries did not like how Arceus had banished Darugis and began to seperate. Creating their own worlds.

Darugis plotted, seeking revenge on Arceus. Darugis was still connected to Arceus in some way because Arceus still cared for all of it's followers. Arceus wanted to create friendship and love and thought Pokemon would be lonely.
Arceus felt they needed companions...Thus, the creation of humans began to soothe Arceus's worries. However, Darugis saw this as a plan. Darugis tempted the first humans, as they released it from it's imprisonment.
Negativty was thus spread out through the Pokemon World. Anger, jeaously, hatred, envy and so fourth.

Darugis's plan was almost complete, until a young trainer named Jean Blake sealed it away inside Pandora's Box once again. But it was not sealed away completely... Extracting it's revenge, Darugis trapped Jean Blake in an endless void so he could not stop it's plans ever again.

Until now...


(New Banners):

The battle with the child of Jean Blake has only begun. Although Darugis lost the battle, it was far from losing the war. Spreading it's power globally, it decided to build it's throne in another Region close by. The OMNI Region. The story continues 1 month later...What will be the outcome? Only You can decide that.


(The Tiles and Maps are still a work in progress)

Well, this thread will be closed until the creator removes Cope's overworlds. He will also be penalized with 70 points of warn.

Bien, este tema permanecerá cerrado hasta que el creador elimine los minis de Cope. También será sancionado con warn de 70 puntos.
