Pokemon Retcon Micropatch Collection (Emerald)

Hack of Pokémon: Emerald Version

Description:

Retcon - Short for “retroactive continuity”, a practice in media where previously-established information is changed in order to fit with a new direction that the series is going.

The Pokémon Series, for the most part, does not retcon. Instead, they create elaborate reasons for why things didn’t exist before. One example of this is in Eevee’s evolutions. Rather than simply adding new evolutions, GameFreak came up with increasingly complex reasons why Eevee couldn’t evolve to new forms in previous games. First it was because of happiness, then because it must evolve in certain locations, then because it needs to know a specific move. In other cases, they pass off bugs as intentional decisions. For example, Pinsir is a Bug Type Pokémon that learns only Fighting Type moves. However, since it wasn’t a Bug/Fighting Type from the beginning, that will never be corrected.

The refusal to retcon has added up over the years. Enter this Micropatch Collection. It targets Gen III games and makes a series of retcons to provide a fuller, richer experience for longtime players.

It contains 2 main categories: evolution/breeding changes and type changes. Each patch is fully compatible with all of the others, and SHOULD be compatible with most other hacks, as they only change one byte here and there. The reason this is released as a “micropatch collection” and not one big patch is to allow players to choose which changes they want to make, and which they want to ignore.
