Pokemon Unknown Pokemon Documentation

This hack “Pokemon Unknown” is based on Pokémon FireRed which focuses on creating a more natural and immersive randomized experience. Battles and encounters are always unknown, which attempts to bring the unpredictability of competitive battling into the Kanto story. Here is Pokemon Unknown Pokemon Documentation. It will give some information about evolutions, gifts and trades, pokemon encounters, pokemon change and more.

Pokémon Changes


Unown has been buffed to be somewhat more viable. Their type was changed to Psychic, Dark. It also has the following new properties, which ultimately means using Unown will be much more situational. Its usefulness depends heavily on the letter you have and your party.

  • Letter Swarm (Ability): Speed stage is buffed significantly when Unown’s party member’s have its letter. +1 stage per letter.
  • Cipher (Signature Move): Effectiveness is based on whether the enemy has Unown’s letter in its name. +100% per letter.

Note: that a high swarm stage Unown can still have BST between min 448 and max 600, but it’s party dependent.

Starter Pikachu

The Pikachu that is offered as a starter has been upgraded to the stats of Partner Pikachu which has BST of 430. When holding a Light Ball to double it’s Atk and Sp. Atk, its BST is 585. There are 8 variants you can get offered in Oak’s Lab. We have revamped these with a new typing, movesets, and hidden abilities. The motivation here was to make Pikachu more randomized in the spirit of the other starters.

Moreover, the starter Pikachu’s cannot be found in the wild or evolve into Raichu. Regular Pikachu’s still can.

Misc. Notable Buffs

We have buffed each stat of Meowth by 40%, Persian by 20% and Raichu by 10%. This was done to make Jessie and James, Giovanni, and Surge more competitive respectively. Meowth’s BST ends up around 400, while Persian and Raichu have BST approximately at 530. Lastly, Eevee has been updated to the full stats of Partner Eevee with a BST of 435.

Gifts and Trades

We give many randomized gifts in otherwise empty locations. There are also a handful of randomized trades, where a trainer is looking for a specific type of Pokémon and will provide a random Pokémon of the type they have, which is likely convienent for nuzlockes.

All trades and gifts are marked as “exchanges”, given a random nickname, and marked as the OT trainer they came from. In a Nuzlocke scenario it’s up to you how you wish to enforce these. They were intended to be used and the AI difficulty was balanced with these in mind.

Trades and gifts attempt to abide by the duplicate clause when possible (but not if you’ve already caught every Pokémon of the receiving type). The special statistical trades in the Cinnabar Lab use thresholds of low ≤ 50 and high ≥ 100.

Pokémon Encounters

Wild encounters are based on a Pokémon of a random type sampled from the vanilla engine’s native generator. The chance of evolved Pokémon is very low (about 1% early on). Some rare or impossible types have been given a low chance to spawn instead of the type the engine is trying. For example, Ghost and Dark Pokémon are more likely to show up while you are playing at night.

The shiny chance has been boosted from odds of 1/8096 to 1/2048. It’s possible to complete the national Pokédex (905) to earn three stars, but you will need to finish the post-game for Cerulean Cave. It’s possible to catch more than 90% of the Pokédex before Badge 4 though!

Pokémon Happiness

Level-up boosts to happiness have been slightly increased overall. The evolve thresholds for any friendship based evolutions has been lowered significantly. Running for friendship is still enabled, except for dead nuzlocked Pokémon.

Mega Pokémon

We’ve kept the original 46 mega evolutions and also converted 26 of the available gigantamax Pokémon evolutions into new mega evolutions. The motivation was to create a larger and more diverse pool of megas using existing sprite designs. We prioritized only converting gigantamax forms that didn’t already have a mega or two. For example, Charizard did not get a 3rd mega.

The majority of new megas forms have a new ability, type, learnsets, or a mix. Most new mega forms should be viable but strengths will vary. The Mega Ring is given by the Route 15 Professor Aid (50 pokemon owned/evolved) but isn’t really expected till around badge five.

See the below list of the 26 new mega evolution forms, types, and abilities.
