Story


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 occurring 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 receiving 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.

    1. DarkRising 1 is the original game made be DarkRisingGirl. Kaizo is simply the same game with some bug fixes and extra content done by SinisterHoodedFigure.

      Delete
    2. Does Kaizo make the game harder or easier? I am uncertain

      Delete
    3. The mod was made by a different person, and the difficulty is probably adjusted to his taste, so it can't really be classified as easier or harder. But it does claim to have a more reasonable difficulty curve.

  14. Hey something is wrong with my items bag. I was using cheat codes to get super potions and repels but they disappeared and I can't buy anymore for some reason

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's strange. Maybe the cheat codes you used weren't meant for this game, or at least the version you're playing. I guess you should remove the cheat codes if they're still enabled and then close and reopen your emulator. If that doesn't work, I included a link to the official contact form a few comments ago, where you can ask DarkRisingGirl herself.

  15. How can I got to the Dragon Valley cause e erytime the Black belter at the entrance challenges me into a battle the game crashes also im on Flash128k at My Boy

    Replies
    1. It might be a bug. Are you playing the Kaizo version or the original? You can try contacting the creator here. If she doesn't reply, maybe try a walk-through-walls cheat to skip the trainer if possible.

      Delete
  16. Im using the original and can you tell me what the walk through walls cheat is?

    1. Aslo can I transfer my save files from the original Dark Rising to the Kaizo one?

      Delete
    2. Maybe see this page for the cheat code. I don't think you can transfer without causing more bugs, but you can try.

      Delete
  17. Does this use the physical special split

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The original DarkRising 1 doesn't have it (2 onwards do), but I'm not sure if it was added in the Kaizo version or not.

  18. Is it possible to get all pokemon on this game? Like all starters/legendaries and so on? Thanks. Great work on the upload :)

    1. It's been a while since I played this, but I believe you can. There's some documents under "Useful Stuff" above if you want to make sure.

    2. Yeah i checked it but i dont see pokemon like gible in it. My concern really is if i can complete the pokedex without trading. Thanks for replying fast!

      Delete
    3. Yeah, that list only mentions wild Pokemon, not gift or event ones. I'm guessing all trade evolutions have been changed, but to make sure, you can contact the creator through the official site (link above).

      Delete
    4. You can get Gible by picking it as your starter, your choices are Dratini, Bagon and Gible

      Delete
  19. I downloaded kaizo and have seen two major bugs, idk who can fix. First in the begining of game after getting starter pokemon if u walk right or left of the exit to the proffesors lab and not exit directly in middle game freezes and u have to start over. Second major glitch after exiting cave and passing through dead swamp thers is a guy blocking my path and cant conti ue the game. I tried to talk but nothing happens. He is suppose to battle me but game code is probably messed up.

    ReplyDelete
  20. IMPORTANT PLEASE READ....Kaizo is broken i caought about 100 pokemon and before i coumd get to second gym there is a major glitch that prevents you from continuing. Idk if revular version is playable but kaizo is completely broken. I traveled back to see if i missed something but noticed several more glitches. For example a character that talks about the main protagonist's father battles you okay fine but if you leave town and come back he re engages likes its the first time you are meeting batteling again. Also there is a spot in the game where you can see a duplicate of your character sprite between some trees. So many broken code in this game its pissing me off because the story seemed great.

    1. You can contact the original version's creator here.

  21. What is kaizo?? Or what does kaizo fixed mean

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's a mod of the original DarkRising. The person who modded it has come out with hacks like Blue Kaizo, Crystal Kaizo, etc., and hence the name.

  22. Is there any rom hack where Pokemon follows you coz i really want one any gen will work. Thank you

    1. That's supposed to be very hard to do. There's Fire Yellow, but the following is not done very well.

    2. Is the game here?

      Delete
    3. Yeah the game looks dumb. Not worth wasting time when already completed Kanto many times

      Delete
  23. Well i found an annoying bug in the original version, I've beat 2 gyms until now but the TM case is empty i cross checked it by picking up a tm(attract) in Atlantic path but the tm case is still empty

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That seems like a pretty serious bug. Did you use cheats by any chance?

      Delete
    2. Nope not yet.

      Delete
  24. Another dumb thing in the kaizo version is, we cannot use items like full heal amd revive in battle so if my pokemon is poisoned or has any other status problem i can do nothing until the battle is over. Same is with revive NO USE IN BATTLES

    ReplyDelete
  25. Umm.. yeah it pretty messes up the gameplay coz every other trainer does do status damage and it's impossible to find a mart amidst of a forest or cave or worst surfing

    ReplyDelete

    1. Think of it as an introduction to competitive battling.

    1. Yes, the trade evolutions have been changed. See the Evolutions List document above.

  29. Why can't I use revives or full restores during battle?

    1. They've been disabled to make the game harder.

    1. Which emulator? First change the save type to Flash 128k, then either delete the .sav file for the game or rename the rom file.

  31. Can you get fire stones and if so where

    1. Not sure. Maybe they're sold at Flamen City.

  32. In kaizo can opponent use items during battle?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Does the Tom have physical special split?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think so, unless it was added in the Kaizo edition. Th other DarkRising games (2 and after) have it though.

      Delete
  34. What is the differences between this kaizo version and the mega evolution version listed in your all pokemon hacked gba list? i want to start this pokemon gba hack series,so which dark rising version i should start to have the latest pokemon and features? Thank you knuckle-san

    And thanks a lot for this great site!!!

    Replies
    1. I don't know much about the Mega version. I believe it was made by the Pokemoner guy, but I'm not sure what was added/changed.
      Dark Rising Kaizo is a mod of DR1 by SinisterHoodedFigure, and is acknowledged by the official creator. I think it might be the better option.

      Delete
  35. Its a bit hard for me Kaizo ver.
    But the original is really hard but u finished the original. Im still figuring the differences between them.. Thanks a lot hope.to see the DARK RISING 3 HEHE..

    1. Btw i cant use max revive and full restore ingame battles why is that? But my enemy is using full restore and i can only use in ingame battles are max ir hyper potions and full heal?

      Delete
    2. There's a list of changes in Kaizo given above. Mainly, it fixes bugs and slightly reduces difficulty.
      And yeah, those items can't be used in battle to increase the difficulty I guess.

  41. Not sure if the pokemon location list needs to be updated for the kaizo version or not, but I was able to get a Turtwig on Lavaburn Path, hopefully the list is actually accurate, or else my planned team falls apart

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I believe the list was intended for the original, and not Kaizo, so it's quite possible that locations have been shuffled. Hopefully only slightly though.

      Delete
    2. Hopefully, hopefully the location list for kaizo pops up somewhere, I'd like to know before I go any further where my remaining team is.

      Delete
    3. I doubt such a list was ever released. I've tried contacting the guy who made the Kaizo mod, SinisterHoodedFigure (about a different hack) but never got a reply, so there's also that..

    4. Shitty, well guess I'll uninstall the kaizo zip from my phone

    5. Same here - pokemon location list is inaccurate. Been searching for riolu in battle cave for 2 hours on fast forward cheat. I've been getting pignite and other mons that are supposedly not supposed to be in the cave.

  43. Is the kaizo version completely fixed? And is it a harder version or so?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not sure if it's completely fixed; but hopefully there are less bugs. I don't think it was made harder as one of the features is a more reasonable difficulty curve.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, 2 things you can try:
      - Use the walk through walls cheat to get around the npc (the cheat should be the same as FireRed's)
      - Load your save file into the regular (non-Kaizo) version and see if that helps
      But first, I would recommend watching a walkthrough on Youtube to make sure you didn't miss something.
