This is the first game, prequel to Vega.
Description for Altair/Sirius, Vega, and
This is a set of very well done hacks with a great OST and VERY HARD difficulty.
It is highly regarded as some of the best and most difficult foreign language hacks available
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
The game is setup in a way in which you are always underleveled compared to the Gym Leaders. (If you think grinding can help, GL with that. The wild Pokemon are probably 5-10 levels under you at that point)
In addition to this, the Gym Leader A.I.s have been upgraded a whole lot compared to normal trainers to the point where it is not uncommon to lose your first match and require switching out members of your party due to Gym Leader having an attack you unexpectedly did not see coming
Features of these games include
- Custom sprites/mapping
- New regions (starting with Vega)
- Custom OST (starting with Vega)
- New attacks
- Somewhat questionable new evolution paths for existing official mons.
Description for Altair/Sirius only
The mapping have been kinda done at a minimum with a few
absolutely new areas. Also the amount of new BGMs are only a handful.
Fakemon also only consists of about 1/4 of the obtainable roster. (This has been fixed in Vega and Procyon/Denab with more Fakes, new regions, and fully original OST.)
The difficulty is still as aggravating as ever though.
Also Gym Leaders got changed to confuse you.
If possible, you should skip this and jump straight to Vega as it is the superior hack (but not to Procyon/Denab as they are
Edit 2: Progression is pretty much RSE as a base really, you really should skip this game and read the sypnosis I linked on Vega’s post
Latest public patch from June 18, 2014
Game is complete.
Edit: After checking Vega out, it has proper English names and moves due to it using an English ROM base for some reason.
Basically this patch sucks because translator was limited by Japanese text limits
