Information


Name: Pokemon Polished Crystal
Type: GBC
Hack of: Crystal
Language: English
Creator:

Faithful Version


There are two patches, regular and "faithful". The faithful patch does not change any Pokémon types or base stats, or any move attributes. This will be more familiar, but can have some odd consequences, like a Ghost trainer using a Ninetales that lacks STAB on its Shadow Ball.


Story


The storyline is the same— you start in New Bark Town, beat the Johto gyms and the Elite Four, then move on to Kanto and fight Red. However, also added are new Pokémon, new moves, new mechanics, new maps, new events, new trainers, new items, new bugs, and Red is not even the end of the game. There's also a moderately increased the difficulty, although this probably needs tuning.

  1. Hopefully this doesn't end up being abandoned. It's a very good rom hack so far!

  2. Thank you so much for uploading this. I've been searching nearly an hour for a v1.0 but no luck -.-'

    1. Which version are you playing? The 3.0.0 beta may have problems. If you're having problems with 2.2.0, please report it on the Pokecommunity page, or give me more details so I can.

    1. Yes. I just redownloaded both of them and the checksums match the ones provided by the creator (here), so you should be fine.

      Delete
    2. The level up movepools documented in the github don't match what my pokemon are learning as they leveled up. Was the name of the rom you patched Pokemon Crystal UE V 1.0?

      Delete
    3. Which version are you playing? If you're on one of the 2.2.0 versions, the movepools may have been changed for the upcoming version 3.0. Please contact the creator to verify.
      The 3.0 Beta I've provided above is probably not the latest release, so I wouldn't suggest using that.
      And like I've said before, the md5 checksums of the patched ROMs match the given ones. That's a much more reliable way of checking than just using file names.

  5. Why are the rare candy cheat & master ball cheat are not working here??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A lot of stuff was changed, so Crystal cheats won't work anymore.

      Delete
  6. what is the new cheat of polished crystal??

    1. Sorry, I don't know. You can ask the creator by posting on the Pokecommunity thread linked above.

      Delete
  7. Do you know any notable bugs for 3.0? If so, should I go with 2.2.0?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The thing is I don't really follow the development of this hack, so the version of Beta 3 here isn't the latest. I will try to find the latest version later today. That said, I've heard it's pretty stable.

      Delete
    2. The only thing I've noticed in 3.0 so far is if you attempt to read a signpost, the game will freeze.

      Delete
    3. It's possible that this has already been fixed. Beta 3 gets updated frequently so it's a chore to keep it up-to-date.

  8. What cheats work in this game?

    Replies
    1. I guess you could regular Crystal cheats, but it's likely that they will mess up something internally. Best to ask on the Discord (link).

  9. Where are all the hidden grottos located?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Someone recommended searching for "grotto" in the source (link). Note that the source is far ahead of the beta 3 release that's provided here.

  10. Is there pss split in this game

    1. Haven't actually played this but it should be the same length as Crystal.

      Delete
  12. Great game, but they should fix a problem in the battle tower. Trainer use themselves to fight you, I know that sounds crazy, I think it is just a bug because their names are just a bunch of zeros and I was supposed to have battle at level 60, but my opponents were at level 50, and was I. Besides, that the game was perfect, I really want to play freely at battle tower tho :(

    1. Do give your feedback to the creator (along with the version you're playing).

      Delete
    2. I'm playing the 3.0.0 version, and I don't know where to report that to the creator.

      Btw, I can't battle Blaine, blue is blocking the path. He says that I'm not ready because I have less than 7 badges, but Idk how to get the 7th one because he won't let me get to Blaine, am I missing something?

      Delete
    3. Blaine should be in a cave in the Seafoam Islands.
      The creator can be contacted via the Pokecommunity thread mentioned above or the Discord.

  13. How can I get magnezone? I went to rock tunnel, and used a rare candy on my pokemon but it wouldn't evolve.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's Magnet Tunnel, not Rock Tunnel (connects Goldenrod with the route between Violet City and the Union Cave). And it may or may not be blocked off in the build you're playing.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, and yes, it is blocked off, is there a way to unblock it?

      Delete
    3. Don't think so. It's blocked off because the creator hasn't finished making it. You can find Magnezone in Cerulean Cave though.

      Delete
  14. He is the beta 3.0 from june the newest version

    1. The latest official release is still 2.2.0. The creator has put all her work online so it's possible to "build" a ROM with the current state of progress, which is what I've done on the specified dates above. And no, the ones above are not the absolute latest.

      Delete
  15. Does anyone know where's the Rock Smash/Brick Break TM? I'm already in Kanto. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not in the regular place (near Ruins of Alph)? Also check the Goldenrod Dept. Store. If it isn't there either, try asking on the Pokecommunity thread or the Discord.

      Delete
  16. Over 2 years later and still no final version of 3. I used to follow the progress on discord, but it was *super* slow, and probably still is. I haven't been back in a while. Would still love to see this complete. :)

  17. How does eveloution for trade Pokemon work? Do they evolve at a certain level. Also what does the item gold leaf do? Thanks

    ReplyDelete

    1. Both your questions are answered in detail in the FAQ (link)
