I have this vivid memory of a day in the August of 2007: I scurried up to my Dad - who was busy lying inert (snorlaxlike) on the family couch - and I asked him for parental permission to join a website called Eevee's Headquarters, and he was like sure whatever. Ten years have passed, and I am now a MAN. We survived my being a horrible child and a worse teenager. So, in honor of these past ten years of great conversations, shared fandom, huge mistakes, drama I never should have started, projects that I always abdicated - in honor of all of that, I wanted to FINISH a cool project for this time. So here it is - in beta at least. That's significantly more finished than usual, let's say.

Here you go.

Dialogue, names, and characters were changed. A lot is exactly the same as the original Pokemon Red, so don't go in expecting huge stage redesigns or anything, because there is none of that. Maybe some day a full Route 50 based map hack of a pokemon game would be feasible... but we're getting ahead of ourselves. I did try to sneak in quite a few easter eggs, so please be on the alert.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND ANY ERRORS
Even more important:
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO CHANGE ANYTHING
Consider this a beta. I played all the way through and changed pretty much everything I want changed. But a result of this is that there might be little glitches or problems that I never caught. (One I am already aware of: the hand in the title screen FREAKS OUT ooh it bugs me so much - but not enough to fix it. Some day.) There should be nothing that renders a point in the game impassable, but if somehow there is let me know!
Even more likely, there might be a chance that I tried to be funny at some point and dramatically failed. I tried to go through the Route 50 quote archive and reference super old stuff that maybe nobody remembers, because I enjoy that, BUT if ANYONE feels like I gave them dialogue that they don't like or is cringy, please let me know. In one of my more delirious moments I probably ended up adding some "lawl random" level dialogue to the game. In fact, don't be surprised if the entirety of the game is "lawl random" level humor. All I can say is that if you want it, I will make an update on your behalf, seriously! (some day) Dialogue is super easy to change.
Furthermore, if anyone wants to be included who isn't, let me know, and I'll add you to the game! The gym leaders and elite 4 are set at this point, BUT a lot of townspeople can easily have dialogue changed if you want to whatever you want to say! You want to be a bystander in Lavender Town? You got it. I can't make you just a normal fightable trainer on the road, unfortunately, because they're... tricky... :(
If you don't have a means of emulating .gbc files, well, if I were a shady dude, I would recommend the GBA emulator visual boy.

You see this list? Are you not on this list? You can be on this list! Just ask! It's my gift to you. You can be enshrined in a video game hack... forever. Digital archeologists will uncover the record you've left in this game centuries from now and write romantic fan fiction about YOU! and that's a gaurantee
Alright, practical stuff aside, let's get to the more metaphysical stuff:
