Pokemon Cubic Crystal Move Changes

Pokemon Cubic Crystal is a remix of Crystal that’s recognizable but distinct, a sort of “what if Crystal’s story was as different from Gold/Silver as future same-gen sequels?” approach. It’s GBC ROM Hack and a QoL ROM Hack based on Pokemon Crystal by Jay (Like the Bird. Pokemon Cubic Crystal Move Changes will list all information about moves in this game.

Move Changes in Pokemon Cubic Crystal

Field moves are usable by Pokemon that can learn said moves whether or not it’s in their moveset! No need to waste a slot on Fly to get around or on Strength to move boulders! Dark moves are physical, given literally every Dark move introduced until the Physical/Special split is Physical. Ghost moves are now special, as the most notable Ghost move is Shadow Ball and the most notable Ghost type is Gengar. Sorry, Lick!

Poison moves are now special, as the only physical Poison move is Poison Sting (verus Acid, Smog, Sludge, and Sludge Bomb). Sorry, Arbok, Muk, and Beedrill! You’re welcome, Tentacruel, Gengar, and Vileplume! All attacks with 70 BP or less (barring trapping moves, Fury Cutter, Rollout, and Triple Kick) now have 100% accuracy. Added Iron Head with 80 BP, 100% Accuracy, and 10 PP with a 30% chance to flinch;

Added Ominous Wind with 60 BP, 100% Accuracy, and 10 PP (usually 5) with a 10% chance to raise all stats by 1; Ghost needs more attacking moves! Removed Barrage, Egg Bomb, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Nightmare, Spider Web, and Whirlpool (no more whirlpools in the field either, they’re dumb!)
