Pokémon Platinum Red & Blue Versions


More stuff coming next time I decide to be not-lazy :)

Introduction

What are Platinum Red & Blue?

Pokémon Platinum Red and Blue Versions are two separate GBA hacks. Platinum Red is a full demake of Pokémon Platinum Version on the GBA, while Platinum Blue, still using Sinnoh, has many other features and sidequests.

Features

NOT STARTED | IN PROGRESS | PLATINUM BLUE EXCLUSIVE | BOTH GAMES

EXP when catching a Pokémon ~ Instead of defeating Pokémon for EXP, why not catch 'em all?

FAQ

Q: Will you be doing 3D?
A: No.
Q: Will you add shadows to the buildings?
A: Well there's a catch to doing so. Even though I added the new tile system, shadows are going to take a lot of space/time/work. It takes extra palettes (that I don't have), extra tiles (that I may use for other structures), and extra blocks (that I need for making the map). So if all of these inspections pass when I'm done mapping once and for all, I will add shadows. But now, it's just a wall in the road to progress.
Q: How about fake 3D?
A: Don't think so.
Q: When is the next update/release?
A:

Closing

I'm a full-time student. Platinum Red & Blue are not my priorities, and when I do have free time, I don't always go straight to them. It has been a long time since I've been able to consistently make them, and that's why a few years have passed without any substantial work to show. However, I am on the Romhackers' chat if you want to contact me or the team. I post stuff there before here, and it's also nice to get to know people.
I'm a very busy person outside of Platinum Red & Blue, so please consider that. On another note, thanks for taking the time to check them out!
