    NDS Rom Hacks

    Perfect Platinum:

    Rom Base - Platinum
    Creator: Roland

    Changes
    *I have included every Pokemon scattered throughout the Sinnoh Region. Unfortunately, due to lack of scripting tools at this time many previous (pre-D/P/P) legendaries can be encountered randomly (most if not all are level 70+).
    *I did my best to keep the Sinnoh dex somewhat accurate, but any Pokemon that is not in Platinum will not appear in the Pokedex. I apologize for any inconvienence but we just don't have the tools to edit the Pokedex at this time.
    *I have edited every trade evolution! Normal Trade Evolutions should evolve at level 40. Item trade evolutions now evolve holding the trade item on level up in the daytime.
    *4 event items are available through in-game trades. Allowing access to event legendaries. (Be sure to remove the items from the pokemon once the trade is completed!)
    *The Stopwatch and Alarm Clock Pokétch Apps can be acquired from the Pokétch President once you have 7 Gym Badges.
    *Challenger's Edition has progressively increasing difficulty for experienced trainer's.
    *Newest releases include patching program and your choice of patching methods.
    *Patch should now be Linux compatible!
    *I've included mirrors in case of server failure.
    *UPDATED* I found an error in Rotom's Form room and have corrected it.

    Hard Gold:
    Rom Base - HeartGold/SoulSilver
    Creator: Arkeis

    Changes
    * Major trainer battles are now more challenging with stronger Pokemon, better moves, and hold items. This includes battles with Gym Leaders, Elite 4, your Rival, Team Rocket Admins, Eusine, and the Kimono Sisters. Many normal trainers also have upgraded teams.
    * Ability to catch all 6 Johto and Sinnoh Starters in the wild.
    * Ability to evolve former trade-evolution Pokemon without trading.
    * Ability to find both Soul Silver-only and Heart Gold-only Pokemon in the same game.
    * New overworld sprites for main characters
    * Ride a Skateboard instead of a Bicycle!
    * New and edited sprites for many Pokemon.
    * Some late-game trainers can even use legendaries. Can you find and beat all 17 Arceus trainers?

    Blaze Black and Volt White
    Rom Base - White/Black
    Creator: Drayano

    * As aforementioned, the hack allows you to catch all 649 Pokémon in some way or another. This is unaffected by the version chosen to play; encounters are the same in both.
    * Every single trainer in the game has had their Pokémon edited, fitting a new level curve and increasing the difficulty overall. While not mind crushingly tough, they're sure to provide more of a challenge than the original games were able to. The level curve takes full advantage of the new experience system in Black and White.
    * A vast number of Pokémon have had certain statistics about them edited. This can be a number of things, including experience rate, typing, base stats and abilities. A lot of Pokémon have been given their Dream World abilities as an option, where applicable and/or useful.
    * Pokémon have also had additions to their moveset, including additions or alterations to their level up movesets as well as TM and HM compatibility. Level up movesets in particular have been edited for 600+ Pokémon.
    * There has also been editing of many evolutions, generally involving those Pokémon who generally had to be traded to be evolved. Blaze Black and Volt White are entirely self-contained; no outside contact is required for anything.
    * Items found in the field have been changed considerably, to include TMs, evolution items and fossils previously only found post-League. The items have been adjusted in such a way that makes it convenient for the game's progress. Where applicable, text has also been changed to reflect these changes. Multiples of certain items, such as the evolution stones, the Lucky Egg and the EXP Share are also given out, all in the name of convenience.
    * It isn't just trainers and wild Pokémon who have had their levels changed; event Pokémon such as Reshiram and Zekrom have also had their levels changed, ensuring that they don't become useless due to the sharp increase in levels.
    * All five in-game trades have also been edited, giving you new possibilities for your team.
    * A small number of attacks have also been changed to make them more useful, generally in terms of power (and rarely, type).
    * A number of documents are included with the download that allow you to see any and all changes made. Wondering what's new? Where to find something? Consult the guides!

    More hacks will be added in the future.

    Notes:
    -Some of these patches are betas, so they may have bugs.
    -I cannot provide the base roms for you. You will have to find them on your own.

    I like Hard Gold mainly because it's a DS patch, you can ride a skateboard, and the heroes are the sprites from Black and White.

    I was playing AshGrey and it was going so well, then it black screened and I quit. I'm now discouraged on playing it again.

    I believe Flora Sky is a final build. The two DS patches are pretty much flawless though.

    You can Mod Ds games now? Holy ****, how is actually map editing in that? I actually made a few of these and released them on WhackaHack, based on the villains of the game, like Pokemon Rocket and Pokemon Magma/Aqua. I want to make a pokemon plasma and pokemon wtf the new team is called.
    And we can play this on the computer right, Im too poor to afford a flash cart.
