About Pokemon Grape

Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)

Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.

Pokémon, or Pocket Monsters, are strange and marvelous creatures. Some people threat them as pets, many others instead adopt them as their battling monsters in what are called Pokémon Fights. There are still many mysteries around Pokémon to solve, and there are a lot of adventures and tales based on them. Pokémon Grape is one of these adventures, it takes place on a completely new Region a year after the events that occoured on Pokémon Red and Blue (and on Ruby & Sapphire, perhaps). Welcome to the Region of Frejo! It's 1999 and you will impersonate a former baseball player. Your Player is not an aspiring Pokémon Trainer -- he's an affirmed baseball player. However, due to the circumstances, he will have to get involved in this adventure. After a small interview by Professor Bek (formerly Professor Tek, but misspelled "Bek" due to a mistake by the Anagraph Office), you will find yourself in your home in Paceleaf City. On the table you may read the Instruction Book for a few useful tips on your adventure. You may also check out the Town Map on the wall to see the Region you live on, the Region of Frejo. Before you're leaving home, you may want to check out your Personal Computer: the protagonist stores a few Fresh Water bottles in case of emergency, and you will certainly need them. The Player's Mother will be there during the whole adventure and, once you get a Starter Pokémon at Rustel City's Pokémon Lab, she will heal all your Pokémon whenever you want. Also, keep in mind that next door lives the Player's fiancee, Keira. She will assist the player in case of great difficulty. If you run out of money, or if your pocket is almost empty, she will give you some PokeMoney borrowed from her millionaire father. Also, if for some reason you don't have any more Pokémon but one she will be happy to give you a Pokémon! She's the best girlfriend in the world, isn't she? Once you arrive in Rustel City you will be approached by Prof.Bek and from here your errand will start. You will receive your first Pokémon, a Starter Pokémon, and you will be confronted by your nemesis, Paul, the player's rival. You'd better win. Oh, almost forgot, before you leave Rustel City you may want to visit the nearby Pokémon Mart in order to deliever Prof.Bek a mysterious parcel. At this point you will receive the PokéDex, the device used to store info about the Pokémon you catch. This tool may be essential for your quest since there are over 240 Pokémon species, and you don't want to stumble into confusion, right? Oh, the glorious days when Pokémon species were below half a thousand! Do not freak out if all your favourite legendaries Pokémon aren't there (despite the fact than there's already a notable amount of them since many other were added in -- with relative unique events) because ALL Pokémon species will be interesting in their own terms as there's no real weak Pokémon once you manage to make it stronger, or to evolve it if that's the case. Remember, you have two Regions to explore -- Frejo and Kelgo, each one with his unique Town Map -- and plenty of secrets to unravel and discover, secret achievements that might make you stronger and, hence, make your journey far less unforgiving. You see, your quest scenario isn't that linear: Frejo, due its geometry, whirls itself up, like in a true open world, and many areas have to be back-tracked due to secrets that might have been previously out of reach. Beware, because there any many traps, pitfalls, and tricks along the way that you would not have previously imagined! And, even after completing the First Quest up to the Pokémon League, there are two additional main quests, the Second Quest and the Hidden Quest, and with the exception of the Second Quest that will be available after the First one, all quests are somehow intertwined between them, leaving many many many things to explore and try. With all these things there's plenty of gameplay in there, without a doubt much more than in the original Pokémon Red (and much more than in the original Pokémon games, even the latter ones) - probably Pokémon Grape is one of the longest pokémon games to complete for 100% completion without cheating due to its enormous amount of backtracking, alternative scenarios and secrets. From here onwards, it's up to you! Speak to every character and bystander in order to have some hints and tips on your next destination. Gotta Catch 'em All! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [pg:m2] _________________________________ / \ _____| 02. BACKGROUND INFO |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ This is a hack ROM based on Pokémon Red (USA); the author is 80C and this is his first hack ROM. Pokémon Grape's developement began in 2012, it had 3 Demo releases: "Demo 1", and "Demo2", were released during 2013; "Demo 3" was released on Christmas 2014 while its expansion, named "Demo 3.1", was released on Summer 2015. Each Demo release featured huge differences and improvements. This is a Total Overhaul hack that changed drastically the original game beyond recognition and it features advanced Assembly Features - most of them have been implemented for the first time in a Gen.1 Hack ROM like Phisical-Special split attack, new evolution methods etc etc etc. Later hacks, mostly 1st and 2nd Generation hacks (but even hacks based on later Generations) were notably influenced by this hack. A few events of the game are similar to the events that occour in Pokémon Red\Blue (altought in a different order); those similarities however are to be explained later in the game's storyline. The hack is pretty hard, especially at the beginning of the game, and the gameplay experience offers way more hours of gameplay than the original Red Version (and perhaps even a few newer games). This is the last hack that has been realized with obsolete methods like hex editing, manual repointing, byte-by-byte programming etc. Many fans considered this hack the "spiritual successor" of classic retrò Pokémon Hacks like Pokémon Brown and Pokémon Team Rocket Edition and, in facts, this hack constitutes the turning point, or the bridge, between these classic hacks and the latter more sophisticated ones. Actually Pokémon Grape is widely considered by both critics and fans around the world one of the best Gen.1 hack ever made, and one of the best ones regardless of the game engine on which is based, compeating easily even with hacks based on the 3rd Generation of Pokémon games. It even won several prizes and contests online during the mid-2010s, with the last Demo receiving critical acclaim worldwide. Definitively, Pokémon Grape splits the age of Pokémon fangames into two: before Pokémon Grape and after Pokémon Grape. Blah blah blah, now let's get started. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [pg:m3] _________________________________ / \ _____| 03. STORY |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ --- Note: The story features a few unclear points on purpose, especially in the latest areas of the game that are open to the interpretation of the players. Also, it turns out that many characters are unrelaiable narrators. Consider this an experiment in videogame storyline-making. Remember that the Storyline is a pretext for a quite weird series of events that make the story itself. The following is only a backstory that is mentioned by several NPCs in the first parts of the game. --- Welcome to the Region of Frejo! It's 1999 and you will impersonate a former baseball player who has to take part in a challenge for the ownership of the Pokémon League located on the border between the Region of Frejo and the Region of Kelgo. In fact the powerful Frejo League is located on contended territory, supposedly stolen "a thousand of years" prior from the Region of Kelgo, and tension for a conflict is bulding. As a last resort, the leaders of the two Regions decide to create this Competition for the ownership of the League: each region chooses a rookie trainer as contender, not to create too much advantage on each other, with each contender representing one of the regions. Your player stands as the Frejo contender. Your rival is the Kelgo contender who, quite surprisingly, is another boy from Frejo, PAUL, the son of a local mobster from Team Rocket who managed to escape from Kanto with some of his associates after the failed "Silph Coup" the previous year and relocated there. It is heavily implied that the Region of Kelgo is trying to sabotate the Competition by assuming the local Rocket mobsters, but apparently this is not enough for them. Indeed, the night before the competition starts, "some bad guys" from Team Rocket enter the Pokémon League and erase all Pokémon Data from its Mainframe, triggering economic drawbacks since the loss of this Pokémon data -- economic stuff the players aren't supposed to comprehend. At the last minute it is decided that the contenders will be aided by Professor Bek (mispelled by the Anagraph Office as his name was "Professor Tek") who will hand them a PokéDex so each contender will bring the missing PokéMon Data back as part of an additional quest. This might look quite simple, but matters are complicated by the presence of an Occult Group who goes under the name of the "Epsilon" that apparently is secretly controlling this Frejo branch of Team Rocket. Probably the Epsilonists are helping the Region of Kelgo, but this is never disclosed overtly (altough it's implied). Its leader, Kifflom, is both trying to sabotaging the Region of Frejo and putting into practise his evil masterplan: the "Epsilon Program". Somehow it has to do with a newly discovered legendary Pokémon, Driadjin, the Guardian of the Region of Frejo. There's even more secret cult-alike stuff that will further complicate the story and shed some light on very complicated storyline implications, especially during the Hidden Quest and the Second Quest. Apparently this story, despite looking simple and plain, hides some major revelations to be disclosed during the Post-League. And those might somehow be related with some rumors and legends from the core Pokémon series. The winner takes all. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [pg:m4] _________________________________ / \ _____| 04. FEATURES |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ This is, without any doubt, the Pokémon hack released in the 2010s that introduced most 1st-time-ever features than any other hack previously released -- regardless of platform, competing even against 3rd-generation games. There are so many changes and features that a Sub-Category for each addition is needed. Keep in mind that, being this a total reworking of the original game, nearly everything had been changed and so it is nearly impossible to list each small modification, so listed here there are only the most notable and major additions.

KNOWN ISSUES |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ --- NOT BUGS: *Sometimes Rustel City's music pitch changes slightly if you re-enter the area. I found this funny so I left it in the game. Yes, the song is "California Gurls" by Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg, thanks to AshAndMisty (aka Red) for this catchy tune; --- Fixed Bugs originally present in Pokémon Red Version: Many were first-time fixes: notably the Ditto Assumption, Glitch City, Walk-Thru-Walls, Cable-Club-Escape, PokéDoll Oversight, SaveReset Oversight, Names Issues, Door Tile sound oversights, Using Repels upon repels, 1st GYM Skipping, Cycling Road Skipping, several Safari Zone PA-System Glitches and safari zone steps-decreasing issues. (Apparently no one noticed the Door Sound Oversight before 80C did, so it is likely that, at the time of writing this document, that oversight isn't listed among the officially discovered Pokemon Red/Blue glitches). *No more glitchy east-coast tile that spawns weird wild Pokémon, therefore, no MissingNo glitch. Surfing on the coast tile spawns the same pokémon you will find by surfing on the regular sea tile. This also fixed A LOT of other related glitches (for example, the "Safari Trick"); *Obviously no "Safari Trick" (See above); *No Glitch City :P *Fixed the "Safari Zone PA-System Glitch", fixing a lot of related glitches in the process (like the Walk-Through-Walls glitch); *Fixed the Walk-Thru-Walls Glitch once for all (See above); *Safari Zone's specialty and novelties (step decreasing, walking counter, etc.) are applied only when a safari session is paid first, meaning that a lot of glitches involving safari zone are all fixed; *Added a notable fix for the "Transform Glitch": Pokémon caught during the Transformed state, either by using Transform, Metronome or Mirror Move will retain their original Identity upon capture, they won't turn any longer into Ditto (Fixed the "Ditto assumption" glitch); *Fixed the "Evolutionary Stone Bypassing" Glitch; *The so-called "Save Reset Oversight" involving the cycling road has been fixed; *Fixed the infamous "Cable Club Escape Glitch"; *Fixed a lot of routines that handled water in the overworld; *Fixed the "1st GYM Skipping Sequence"; *Fixed the "Ghost Marowak Skipping" also known as the "PokéDoll Oversight"; *No Cycling Road Block skipping :P *Fixed the "Statue Fishing Glitch", you cannot use the fishing rod in unfit places; *No "invisible PC access" :P *No "Oak Poké Ball delivery text overlapping"; *No Elixier\Ether glitch in case you raise PPs with a PP-Up; *You cannot use another repel if the last used one is still active; *Focus Energy and Dire Hit are no longer glitched; *Substitute no longer has a chance of making its user faint by leaving it with 0 HP; *Fly, Dig, Dive and Bounce have invulnerability status and a custom message each; *Using Rest now also clears the badly poisoned state (and its multiplier); *Leech Seed is no longer effective against the target's substitute; *Sleeping now lasts for a maximum of 3 turns (instead of 7) and a minimum of 2; *When Pokémon wake up from sleeping they no longer waste their turn; *Fixed a minor issue involving the sound effects of doors and stairs; *ALL moves have been updated up to the later games, a few of them however keep their original damage (like Surf, Flamethrower, etc.) as I thought it was more convenient not worsen them further, Blizzard has a 30% of freezing chance like in the original japanese versions, Tackle behaves like in Gen.8 games; *ALL Critical Hit Moves now have a higher critical hit accordingly, with a few more addition (notably Dragon Claw and a few of the newly added ones); *After using Transform the palette color will be corrected as soon as you either look at the party Pokémon or wait a few turns; *No Super-Glitch Move (TMTrainer-Glitch or whatever); *Fixed an issue regarding Item Names, TM\HM names and names in general; *MissingNo. #000 (M'Block) has been _partially_ fixed, you won't encounter him in any way during normal gameplay though; *A lot of other minor fixes that actually I don't remember and are either unnoticeable in regular gameplay or impossible to mention on this README alone; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [pg:m6] _________________________________ / \ _____| 06. UTILITIES |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ Since a gigantic amount of players could not figure out many of the changes regarding Pokémon, moves and other stuff I decided to include in this README the following utilities: *Pokémon List, including: New evolutive chains; New Type Assignment; *New Type Chart *Moves List *TM List *Items List [m6:a] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pokémon List ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All the Original 151 Pokémon Red & Blue Pokémon species have been kept (that is, the species ranging from Bulbasaur to Mew). The total amount of Pokémon species in this game is 248, that is, 97 newly added Pokémon species without replacing older ones -- more than any other 1st Generation Pokémon game before this one. The list presents itself like this: 1) Older pokémon who had a change of type; 2) Newly added Pokémon from 152 to 248 - with eventual new types; 3) New evolutive chains previously not found on the original games; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Older pokémon who had a change of type ------------------------------ Clefairy Fairy* Clefable Fairy* Ninetales Fire\ Light** Jigglypuff Fairy*\ Sound Wigglytuff Fairy*\ Sound Bellsprout Wood**\Grass Weepinbell Wood**\Grass Victreebell Wood**\Grass Rapidash Fire\ Bone** Magnemite Electric\ Steel* Magneton Electric\ Steel* Farfetch'd Flying\ Wood** Gastly Ghost\ Gas** Haunter Ghost\ Gas** Gengar Ghost\ Gas** Electrode Electric\ Light** Cubone Bone** Marowak Bone** Koffing Poison\ Gas** Weezing Poison\ Gas** Rhyhorn Rock\ Bone** Rhydon Rock\ Bone** Seaking Water\ Bone** Scyther Bug\ Wind** Tauros Normal\ Bone** Gyarados Water\ Wind** Ditto Atom** Porygon Atom** Omanyte Water\ Bone** Omastar Water\ Bone** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2) Newly added Pokémon from 152 to 248 - with eventual new types; ------------------------------ Chikorita Bayleef Grass\ Light** Meganium Grass\ Light** Cyndaquil Quilava Typhlosion Totodile Croconaw Feraligatr Houndour Fire\ Dark* Houndoom Fire\ Dark* Heracross Yanma Yanmega Spinarak Ariados Chinchou Lanturn Swinub Piloswine Mamoswine Ice\ Bone** Natu Xatu Mareep Flaaffy Electric\ Light** Ampharos Electric\ Light** Marill Water\ Fairy* Azumarill Water\ Fairy* Murkrow Flying\ Dark* Honchkrow Flying\ Dark* Larvitar Pupitar Tyranitar Rock\ Dark* Uranytar Rock\ Light** Phanpy Donphan Ground\ Bone** Wooper Quagsire Togepi Fairy* Togetic Fairy*\ Flying Togekiss Fairy*\ Flying Gligar Gliscor Sneasel Dark*\ Ice Weavile Dark*\ Ice Tyrogue Hitmontop Misdreavus Mismagius Skarmory Flying\ Steel* Espeon Umbreon Dark* Leafeon Glaceon Sylveon Fairy* Magnezone Electric\ Steel* Electivire Magmortar Porygon2 Atom** Porygon-Z Atom** Tangrowth Scizor Bug\ Steel* Steelix Ground\ Steel* Slowking Kingdra Rhyperior Rock\ Bone** Blissey Crobat Politoed Water\ Sound** Lickilicky Raikou Electric\ Wind** Entei Fire\ Wind** Suicune Water\ Wind** Lugia Wind** Ho-Oh Flying\ Light** Seedot Wood** Nuzleaf Wood** Shiftry Wood**\ Dark* Whismur Sound** Loudred Sound** Exploud Sound** Aron Steel* Lairon Steel* Aggron Steel*\Rock Torkoal Fire\ Gas** Tropius Wood**\Wind** Chimeco Wind**\ Psychic Anorith Bone**\ Bug Armaldo Bone**\ Bug Bagon Shelgon Dragon\ Bone** Salamence Drilbur Excadrill Ground\ Steel* Phantump Ghost\ Wood** Trevenant Ghost\ Wood** Driadjin Dragon\ Light** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3) New evolutive chains previously not found on the original games; Note: This game features, for the first time ever in a Pokémon hack, new methods of evolutions different from the original game's ones. Most of them are based on methods introduced in the later games. These methods include: * Levelling up in a specific map/area; * Levelling up knowing a particular move; * The relationship between ATK and DEF stats of a Pokémon (Tyrogue); * Give your Pokémon a Haircut by a Barber NPC; * Daylight/Night-Time depending evolution through Haircut; ------------------------------ Base Evolution Method ------------------------------ Golbat Crobat Haircut Poliwhirl Politoed King's Rock Kadabra Alakazam Trade Stone Machoke Machamp Trade Stone Graveler Golem Trade Stone Slowpoke Slowking King's Rock Magneton Magnezone Level up in the Panopticon Area Haunter Gengar Trade Stone Onix Steelix Metal Coat Lickitung Lickilicky Level up having learnt Rollout Rhydon Rhyperior Protector Chansey Blissey Haircut Tangela Tangrowht Level up having learnt Ancientpower Seadra Kingdra Dragonscale Scyther Scizor Metal Coat Electabuzz Electivire Electrizer Magmar Magmortar Magmarizer Eevee Espeon Haircut during day time (Clock On) Eevee Umbreon Haircut at night time (Clock On) Eevee Leafeon Level up in Fracture Hill's surface Eevee Glaceon Level up in Frejon Tunnel Ice Area Eevee Sylveon Level up while knowing a fairy-type move Porygon Porygon2 Upgrade Yanma Yanmega Level up while learning ancientpower Piloswine Mamoswine Level up while learning ancientpower Murkrow Honchkrow Dusk Stone Pupitar Uranytar Star Gene Togetic Togekiss Shiny Stone Gligar Gliscor Razor Fang Sneasel Weavile Razor Claw Tyrogue Hitmonchan Level up if Atk>Def Tyrogue Hitmonlee Level up if Atk=100 *NET BALL ; x3.5 effectiveness on water type OR bug type pokémon *DIVE BALL ; x3.5 effectiveness in the underwater maps. *NEST BALL ; ((41 - Pokémon's level) % 10)x, minimum 1x, max pokémon level 40 *REPEAT BALL ; x3.5 effectiveness if it's an already owned Pokémon specie *TIMER BALL ; the more the gameplay hours, the more effective the ball is *DUSK BALL ; 3.5× if used in a cave, in a dark area (and perhaps at night) *HEAL BALL ; heals automatically the caught pokémon *SHINY BALL ; ££ turns the caught pokémon into a shiny (the ball is there and it's collectable but has no effect since shiny mechanics aren't implemented yet in Final Version v1.0) *DOPE BALL ; maxes out the DVs of the caught Pokémon, overblowing its stats *CLONE BALL ; ££ %N - Obtains an HM Clone from the caught Pokémon (the ball is there and it's collectable but has no effect since Auto-Nuzlocke mechanics aren't implemented yet in Final Version v1.0) *SNAG BALL ; Steals a trainer's own pokémon!

FAQ |_____ \ | _______________________________ | / \ |/ | | \| / / \ | | / \ /______/ \______\ In this section you will find out the basics "How to..." for this game. Exceptionally, being this game so difficult to beat/figure out, especially in the latest areas of the game (unless you cheat), I decided to include a quite comprehensive series of Quest Scenario Questions/Hints. Remember that Grape is the equivalent of 80s-scrap-brains RPGs where you have to take note of everything (not as much as "Wizardry" but almost there). [m7:a] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ GENERAL QUESTIONS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: I have a question... etc. etc. etc... A: First, have a look at the other paragraphs in this FAQ. Probably your question is already here. Alternatively, you can ask other people who played this game -- my favourite choice, being this also a good way of interacting with real people exchanging a common interest. Keep in mind that your question might be already answered there so don't bother other players with an already-asked question - search for answers first -- the Web's helpful there. --------- Q: I'm stuck in this part of the game, etc. etc. etc... A: Look at the "Quest Scenario" Sub-Section of this FAQ. If you're still stuck you can browse online -- most of the times you'll figure out just by searching. Keep in mind that a lot of puzzles aren't that obvious and they require plain trial and error to solve them. --------- Q: How do I report a bug\glitch\oversight? A: This is a legitimate and very good question. A short description of the phenomenon, the area\map\circumstance where it was found and at least a pic should do it, either via private message on the last place I were active or, even better, publicly for the whole world to see so other players can take note of it and possibly avoid the reported glitch/bug/oversight. From time to time I end up reading random discussions, pics and\or videos by users (usually when it's too late) and fix each encountered bug in the next release\upgrade of this version. Keep in mind that I do not want to update too often -- only when a good amount of oversights had been detected so I can fix all of these in time for the next upgrade. --------- Q: How do I play this game? A: Please read carefully the "How to play" section on this manual. --------- Q: Pokémon Grape doesn't work on my emulator! Why!? A: There might be various reasons that may have to do with your computer, in that case I'm not going to answer your question as you have to verify first that you have got every needed thing (eg. all the needed extensions for running the emulators, like .dll files etc). Second, usually people commit mistakes while patching and\or doing settings. Have you patched the game correctly? Have you patched the right ROM (Pokémon Red Version (USA) v1.0 [!])? Are you sure that the ROM you have was not already patched\modified? Are you sure that the ROM you have is not damaged\corrupted and so on? Is your emulator supported in your cellphone\computer system? Is your emulator running? Is your emulator missing a needed .dll file or anything? Have you selected the right ROM? Did you select the right Emulator Option (Automatic\SGB)? Is your monitor turned on? Pokémon Grape had been extensively tested, even the day of its release, it doesn't freeze upon opening/playing etc. --------- Q: The game froze as soon as I opened it! A: Are you sure that the ROM you have was not already patched? Are you sure that the ROM you have is not damaged\corrupted and so on? I knew of people patching Pokémon Yellow for mistake, some patched it on a different localization of Pokémon Red, a few were patching older versions of Pokémon Grape, many others instead were trying to patch it on Pokémon Fire Red because they thought there was no difference at all... --------- Q: Can I play this game on my cellphone? A: You cannot play the game on the phone by itself, unless you run it on an emulator that is fit for your cellphone\device etc. Unfortunately, being I the old dinosaur I am I'm out of touch with current mobile technologies, so I have no suggestions for you :( Fortunately, there are way better and younger people than me that know more about it, and I'm sure you'll find someone glad to help you :) --------- Q: Whaaa- Why is the game in gray scale colors!? A: This happens when you emulate the game on Game Boy Original as the emulator "downgrades" the game to run on that platform which didn't feature palettes but only 2 shades of grey (and not 50... Sorry, bad joke). This happened in the Demos even when playing in GBC mode as in those development versions Grape wasn't "upward compatible" as the Final Version. The Final Version in facts is automatically colorized while running on Game Boy Color or superior backward-compatible hardware like the Game Boy Advance (and perhaps newer retro-emulators and extensions). This happens because Original Game Boy games were supposed to be in black\white but, almost at the last minute, Game Freak developers decided to add the Super Game Boy compatibility that allows the game to be colored (that's one of the many reasons that forced them to delay Pokémon Red\Blue's release on the market). Pokémon Grape, since Final Version v1.0, is automatically colored as Game Boy Color altough it is a Game Boy Original ROM with backward compatible Super Game Boy functionalities -- much like Pokémon Yellow -- so this issue is unlikely to happen unless the emulator is forced on Original Game Boy Mode. On BGB the game is automatically ran on SGB (Super Game Boy) mode so it is automatically colored, altough slightly different than in Color Mode, with the palettes being slightly brighter and the title screen with protagonist and scrolling pokémon of the same color -- this happens as Super Game Boy does not support distinct colorization of the VideoRAM OBJ Layer from other VRAM Banks (in short, sprites cannot get different colors from the background) at least in games ran on SGB Mode (at some point during developement of the SGB it seemed that this would have been possible by using the SNES Video RAM but, apparently, no developer ever did that). If you're doubtful go play Zelda: Link's Awakening DX on BGB and\or forced thru SGB Mode and see what I mean. --------- Q: Whaaaa-
