Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I’m Pokemoner. We will play Pokemon Stranded. It’s a GBA Hack ROM and based on Pokemon Fire Red by Entaro Ceraphenine. Well, It’s a great game if you are actually boring when you play pokemon games. Why? Because this game doesn’t have starters, gym, pokemon centers, or pokemon marts.
It has too many side quests to play. And more features are EasyNav Device, Craftwood, Adventure Mode, Pick-a-Route, and more… Anyway, Let’s play. It’s Beta and in English now.
It was just another normal day as you headed out of your home to get your first Pokemon from Professor Oak and embark on your very own Pokemon journey. Little did you know, it was not a ‘normal’ day at all! You find Team Rocket has infested your town and is trying to steal the Professor’s Pokemon. And upon bumping into one of the grunts, he uses his Drowzee to just randomly teleport you away to a random island. Not that he cares about what happens to you afterward!
And this is where the main plot of the game starts. You find yourself on the beach of an uninhabited, nameless island and now your mission is to head back home!
Venture into the bunch of islands you find around you by surfing amidst them and gradually discover the dark secrets of the islands. Collect pieces of information from different sources and puzzle-piece them together to unveil the dark, gruesome mysteries that remained hidden within the islands, about which the rest of the world had never known! Theorize some of the unexplained mysteries and realize the others through clues scattered around the island.
Pokemon Stranded takes a different route from a conventional Pokemon game in multiple ways. For starters, there are no Gyms or conventional Pokemon Trainers, no badges, no Pokemon Centers or Marts, and so on. Also, the main story for the game will be fairly short and straightforward but there will be thousands of side stories along the way and that is what I plan on making the main charm for this game. Most updates of the game will be about the addition of new side quests which at first may not seem that fascinating but I am sure players will be looking forward to those updates as they progress in the game.
The major features of the game include:
Humanization – There are a lot of things in the game that basically do nothing to progress the story but are there just to flesh out the characters of a human/Pokemon or the features of a place/item. Make food for yourself even though you don’t eat. Ask Haunter to show a magic trick. This was done so that the game does not feel too robotic, lifeless or bland.
Pick-a-Route – There are multiple ways to overcome an obstacle. You see a path blocked by a Spearow and a tree? You can either remove the Spearow once and for all, or cut the tree every time you have to go through the path. In fact, there will be some optional ‘obstacles’ that you can just straight up ignore if you want!
Optional SIdequests – As mentioned above, almost the entire game is optional. You don’t have to necessarily do something if you don’t want to. But you get rewarded sooner or later for your participation!
Easter Eggs – There are a lot of internet and meme references! A lot of them are dead and/or outdated because I had placed them a long time ago in the game. Some words are anagram, some are in different languages only to see if a player can spot all the references!
Adventure Mode – Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise now have new adventure mode which you can activate upon talking with a stone in the Forest. Their adventure mode allows finding items, crafting things and more! This will be further updated in a future beta!
EasyNav Device – A high tech device that replaces the need for all HMs required to navigate through the islands!
Craftwood – Every time you cut a small tree blocking your path, you have a 75% chance of getting an item called ‘Craftwood’. Upon collection of sufficient Craftwoods, you can create tents and campfires!
Curries – Make curries for your Pokemon that basically replace the need of Potions and Elixirs because you wont be getting any man-made items in the islands!
Discover more amazing features yourself!
The game uses Leon and UltimaSoul’s FireRed Base as rom base and hence the features from the rom base are present, like:
BW Repel System
Poison Survival at 1 HP
DPPt styled font
Disabled help menu and flashbacks
Mega Evolution (not associated with the story yet)
And basically everything else from there!
Other minor features include:
Pokemon from the first seven generations. Galar Pokemon will be included perhaps in a future version.
New items have never before been seen in a main series Pokemon game
Randomized events. Some things will not be the same if you approach it a second time.
The female protagonist now has a white dress…
No Pokeballs. And hence, no catching Pokemon. You will, however, receive Pokemon and eggs along the way. The entire game is planned so that the player does not acquire any kind of Pokemon capturing capsules, as finding Pokeballs lying around in an uninhabited remote place seemed weird to me. But there will be the presence of Pokeball in a future update when the player will visit places near civilization.
Walls (or scrolls) of Text.
Graphical edits at some places are kind of plain and uninteresting.
Known Bugs, Glitches, and Errors:
The DNS system sometimes gets messy when exiting a warp.
The box inside the tent has sounds from a Pokemon Center PC.
On many occasions, the game recognizes the Cleffa Egg as a living, breathing normal Cleffa.
EasyNav Device displays random Pokemon in the animation when used.
Adventure Mode activates even if you press B while selecting a Pokemon.
Berry Curry does not require you to have any berry in the bag. It was planned to include Shinyquagsire’s Hijack Berry Bag ASM for this purpose but the ASM routine isn’t going too well with the game for some reason.
Grammatical mistakes as English is not his first language.
The Island Guide is not a straightforward guide but contains clues as to how to overcome obstacles and easter eggs.
There is no map in the game yet, so you have to use the map file included for navigation.
This game is a GBA Hack Rom in English. It’s Beta!
