Story

You will play as Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town! Just after Ash conquered the Indigo League he got back to his mom in his hometown where Professor Oak has a new objective for him. He wants Ash to go to Valencia Island to pick up a strange kind of Pokeball for him, since Professor Ivy is unable to send it to him through the PC system. Of course Ash is eager to take this easy objective. What happens after this is, of course, already known to you because we all saw the anime. Nearly all episodes on the Orange Islands are covered, but not all events are necessarily very prominent. Some episodes are implemented as an important part of the storyline, while some are just miniquests.​
Features
  • The Orange Archipelago
  • 4 Gym Leaders & Badges
  • New Sprites
  • New Tiles
  • New Maps
  • Pikachu as starter and the possibility to get Ash's other Pokemon early in-game
  • All Pokemon from Generation I (plus Tracey's Marill from Generation II)
  • Physical/Special/Status Split
  • No Pokeball taken upon failed capture
  • Items to use Dive, Whirpool, Rock Smash & Rock Climb
Screenshots


Bugs
  • The surfing Lapras sprite occasionally overlaps some other overworld sprites and sometimes doesn't appear.
  • Occasionally, a supereffective Thunderbolt causes an annoying sound loop. For now restarting the game fixes it.
Progress

The current Beta version (5.3) is completely finished, including the Movie 2000 Event on Shamouti Island.​

FAQ

How do I get on the cliffs of Pinkan Island?
Talk to the old lady in Sunburst Island's Pokemon Center, she will give you a hint. In general, talk to NPC's. They often tell useful information.
How do I get past the whirlpools to Fairchild Island?
Someone on Trovita Island will give you the Whirlpuller after you beat Rudy. In general, talk to NPC's. They occasionally give away items.
How can I get to New Island?
Talk to Tracey in Pallet Town after the Shamouti Island Event., he will help you further.​
Why are Pokémon in Valencia Park Shiny?
Because they are a different color in the Anime as well.
How can I get the Crystal Onix?
It's catchable after you beat the Orange League.​
Why did you replace the gym challenges from the Anime for regular Pokémon Battles?
First, the story for this game is based on the Anime and not truthful to the Anime. Therefore, I chose to make gym battles instead of the Anime challenges (Wave race, Sled race, etc), because those fit in better within a Pokémon hack based on Fire Red. After all, the whole game is based on battling with Pokémon, not racing with them.
Why don't my Pokémon evolve through trading?
Despite the fact that trading is working in Orange Islands, I want to make the Pokedex fully completable without the need to trade. Therefore I made Kadabra, Graveler, Haunter and Machoke evolve at level 40 instead.
Do I need to take Ash's Pokemon from the Anime with me to make certain events happen?
No.
Are you going to include Pokémon from other Generations?
No, they're not in the Anime and they don't have my interest. Lugia, Slowking and Marill will be included, however, because they make an appearance in the story.

Hi all,

I just finished the game up to Navel Island/Grapefruit Islands (Roughly comparable to 4 gyms in a regular Pokemon Game) and decided to release it up to this point as Beta 2. I don't expect to have a lot of time to work on it in the coming months and I don't want to keep you guys waiting too long for something new!

Even if you find the tiniest bugs/glitches not mentioned in the BUGS section I would encourage you to react in this thread or send me a message.

Enjoy!

Kalarie I may have a confusion about the story line of the game in the original série or as you may find if you search of gym leaders of orange islands ,they are 5 while in the game there is only 4 badges another thing I've just finished the beta 2 game (2 weeks ago to be specific) I just can't wait to continue the walktrough of the game ,any hints any upcoming update for the story in the 2 upcoming months?

@Orange_munching_Player

There are 4 gym leaders (And Badges) in the Orange Archipelago, and one champion (Which will be Drake). It will take some time before I will be able to make a lot of progress on Orange Islands, since I'll be busy studying in the near future...

I think I found a potential bug in the game...

I had team of 6 earlier before receiving Lapras, and got in on the second time. Also I have alredy talked with Misty and Tracey but still I am stuck right there.


EDIT: Almost forgot to tell that the game looks awesome.
But yeah I would love to see two more things Nature coloured stats and Displaying IV's.

@Froosty You should also read what they say, that might help you progress.

Thanks for the compliment;) I will mainly keep all Generation III features (except for PSS Split), so no nature coloured stats or displaying IV's unfortunately...

@TroubledLight Thanks, glad you liked it;)

I surprised myself and made quite some progress in the past few weeks. I think I'll release a new Beta that goes up to the third gym, but it will take some more time before I'll finish that.

Concerning the Crystal Onix: No, you won't be able to catch it, that was also the case in the Anime;)

Hi all,

The moment is there, the official release of Beta 3 of Pokemon Orange Islands! You'll be able to play up to the third gym on Trovita Island. So Orange islands' progress will be roughly comparable to Pokemon Orange by Pia Carrot. (About 6 gyms in a regular Pokemon Game)

What's new in this version:
- Improved Sprites and Tiles I was not happy about
- Fly will be available
- New islands, towns and routes
- More Pokemon will be catchable
- Plenty of Anime-Based Events
- And more!

Even though your save files will be compatible with this new version, I would encourage you to start from scratch. That way I will know I didn't accidently overwrote something important. But that's totally your call:)

The IPS patch can be found in the main post of this thread. And I'll say it again, even if you find the tiniest bugs/glitches not mentioned in the BUGS section don't hesitate to reply here or give me a message.

Enjoy!

Hi all,

The official release of Beta 4.0 of Pokemon Orange Islands is here! You'll be able to play a little further than the fourth gym on Kumquat Island. As far as I know it's the first Orange Islands hack that features all Orange Crew Gym Leaders!

What's new in this version:
- Improved Sprites and Tiles I was not happy about
- Link Trading and Battling will be available
- New islands, towns and routes
- More Pokemon will be catchable
- Plenty of Anime-Based Events
- In general more polish!

Even though your save files will be fairly compatible with this new version, I would encourage you to start from scratch. That way I will know I didn't accidently overwrote something important. Plus in the new Beta the national dex will not be given at the start of the game.

The IPS patch can be found in the main post of this thread. And I'll say it again, even if you find the tiniest bugs/glitches not mentioned in the BUGS section don't hesitate to reply here or give me a message.

Enjoy!
