Ephemeral – /ɪˈfem.ər.əl/ – “lasting for only a short time” (adjective)
One day I woke up, and joked “What if Wooper were a tellytubby”
Seven months, 3 corrupt backups, a few skipped dinners, and many tears later, we have Pokémon Ephemerald.
Pokemon Emerald like you’ve never seen it before
Welcome to a special version of the Hoenn region in Pokémon Ephemerald! It’s not your usual Pokémon game—here, you’ll find 382 unique Saphosian Formes. These Formes have different looks, types, moves, abilities, and styles, making the game feel like it’s from a whole different world!
Imagine encountering Pokémon like a seductive Succubus Jynx, a Gligar that looks like a beautiful butterfly, or a Quilava with a toxic-waste theme. These are just some of the many creative designs you’ll come across.
Get ready for a truly extraordinary adventure in Hoenn. Catch these amazing Saphosian Formes and experience a Pokémon journey like no other. The creativity in this game will keep you hooked, offering a one-of-a-kind adventure that’s unlike any other Pokémon game you’ve played before!
The whole rainbow of possibilities
Not only does every Pokemon have a new type combination, but (almost) every Type combo is represented. Pick two types, and there is a family with that type. Rock/Normal? Meet Caterpie. Poison/Ground? Slowpoke’s your man. Electric/Fire? I think I hear a Tentacool short-circuiting in the distance. Not only that, but all dual types are unique. Everything has a niche by virtue of its type. And of course, plenty of monotypes for those who don’t want to stress. Combine that with Trade evolutions being obtainable and brand new exciting Legendary Encounters in unique locations to Ephemerald. You can fill your National dex with ‘mons of a shape and size unseen in the land of Gen 3!
Optional bossess with true rewards
Like many modern ROMhacks, Ephemerald does not have EV training, as opponent Pokemon will not give you any. However, on your travels, you will find optional Boss-fights that reward you with EV Boosting items. They are found one between each gym, and will only battle you until you have defeated the next major Gym Leader. These provide a much-needed crutch for a casual playthrough providing you with a permanent advantage for the rest of your playthrough, but a challenging decision for the hardcore players, as will it be worth risking your valuable team members before the trainers who truly do not hold back?,
Frigid Frost, Toxic Chemicals, and Flimsy Metals
Since we’re messing with Types, why not tweek the chart a little? In the revitalized Hoenn region. Ice-types have gotten harder, gaining a resistance to Water- and Ground-. Poison types have become extra toxic and now hit Dragon- super-effectively. And Steel-Types are off their game, losing their resistances to Dark-, Ghost- and Psychic-. So perhaps your favorite becoming Ice/Poison might not be as crushing as it seems…
What else can I say? Hoenn, remixed, awaits!
