Do you like Pokemon? Do repeat plays of Pokemon give you no sense of satisfaction? Well look no further! The Pokemon Universal Randomizer promises hilarious bullshit in the form of twisting everything you've come to expect from Pokemon.
Aside from the seed, not much has changed since the last thread. Like last time, the seed is completely randomized aside from its starters.

Shukaro posted:

What do I need to do to play?
  • Download the Randomizer
  • Grab the Presets File
  • Open up the randomizer, click Use Presets, and plop in the presets file and a ROM for Pokemon Fire Red (The english version is suffixed with (U))
  • Grab the Link-Enabled VBA Emulator. This version allows visceral multiplayer action. (!!)
  • Set your save type to Flash 128k under Options > Emulator > Save Type
How can I trade or battle other people?
  • Uncheck Pause when inactive window under Options > Emulator
  • Open Options > Link > Settings...
  • Set your configuration to Network
  • If you're hosting, switch to the Server tab and hit Start! (You will need to know your IP address, and will probably need to forward ports)
  • If you're not hosting, switch to the Client tab, enter the host's IP, and hit Connect
How can I record my play?
  • VBA has built-in recording functionality under Tools > Record, for more sophisticated recording go here.
  • It also has an easy screenshot key that can be bound to whatever you like.
  • GifCam owns for capturing gifs

So, patch your game, pick your starter, and get to it! Remember, half the fun is sharing the experience with your fellow players! Share whatever you see fit! Sharing pictures and information is highly encouraged.

Oh, and for those of you wondering, yes, there will be a Tournament, with prizes, to close out the festivities.

Tournament date and prizes to be Determined

To start things off, some early incentive.
The first player to beat the Elite 4 will earn any forums upgrade of their choosing!


This post will be used for other purposes in the future.

e: If you grabbed your file before 8:15 PM EST, please grab the new file provided. I had made a mistake with the randomization.

Be a cool kid and nickname your 'Mons.

Here's a helpful site if you're no good at coming up with names yourself.

Word of advice: Make sure to look out for the hidden items on the map, because there's some good poo poo in there.

Let's see what it's hiding in Route 1.

Of course! And thanks to that Entei, B. Hornet is now a Kakuna.


I also caught an electric pile of sludge with Effect Spore.

So, The Steak of Justice, what exactly does this hack randomize? I've played through a bit and it's very interesting but it's hard to tell what good and what's not. My Dugtrio has the highest defense on the team for example.

Woops! I'm sorry for not specifying.
Types, wild held items, abilities, trainer Pokemon, wild Pokemon and map items are randomized.
Pokemon base stats have been shuffled, so all the numbers are the same as their original counterparts, but apply to different stats. For instance, Dugtrio's speed has apparently been moved to its Defense.
It also turns out I've been playing along on the wrong file. Haha woops.

There are so many steel types around the beginning. I'm just starting to diversify my team.

Edit: My team is coming along nicely, After the initial steel type rush I had to weed out some things (I'm sorry Hariyama with a bunch of ice type moves) but Mt. Moon gave me a bunch of stuff that could carry me through the end game. Especially the Kingdra and Raikou.
