Pokemon Jupiter: Everything You Need to Know

Pokemon Jupiter

Creator: Corvus of the Black Night

Progress: Completed (Kind of)

Platform: GBA

Hack of: Pokemon Ruby

Pokemon Jupiter is an old rom hack (from 2009) that brought a new story, maps, characters, and Fakemons to the world of Pokemon. The odd twist here is that you play as Ivan from the Golden Sun games.

Who is This Game For?

You should play this game if you’re tired of the same old story, maps, characters, etc. that are found in almost all mainstream Pokemon games.

However, I don’t recommend playing this game if you want to play a rom hack that doesn’t entirely change the whole formula. For that, I’d recommend checking out games like Pokemon Theta Emerald EX.

Features and Additions

New Story

Here’s the intro to the story given by the game creator:

In a faraway place known as the Mynoan Civilization, a great Deluge threatens the Mynoan existence. It has completely flooded the civilization and all that exists is the highest point of the Capitol. Ivan and a mysterious man named Charon flee through a portal to the world of Pokémon…​

Before they leave, Charon instructs Ivan to find him as soon as possible, as they would probably be separated.​

Ivan arrives on the beach of Route 300, which is near Aleph Town, and a man named Fabio Pink finds him unconscious. He brings him to his house and lets Ivan stay there for a while. However, Ivan leaves to go north, where he finds a Pokémon Trainer named Rachel being attacked by a Pokémon. Ivan uses a Pokémon from her bag with ease and defeats it. They meet up in the Aleph Town Bar and Grill to give the

Pokémon to Ivan. She then leaves to go west to Styxwater Town.​

The rest is for you to discover…​

Telepathy with Pokémon

Basically, you can talk to some NPC Pokemon. However, this mechanic wasn’t fully implemented or completed.

Pokemon Animations

New animations for Pokemon. This was a pretty big deal back in 2009.

Over 65 New Songs

A different style of music for Pokemon games. Heavily inspired by the Golden Sun games.

Face Portraits

New characters with cool-looking portraits. I believe these portraits are from the Golden Sun games as well.

Over 95 Cries

Annoyed by the same old Pokemon cries? Well, now you get different cries for more than 95 Pokemon.

Cheats

This game is based on Ruby. Which means Ruby’s cheat codes should work on Pokemon Jupiter as well.

However, this game has Fakemons so I’d recommend steering clear of any Pokemon modifier codes.

Anyway, all of the codes below are GameShark (Action Replay) codes.

Note: Always save your progress before using any codes since they might damage your game.

How to activate the stone at Mt. Aleph?

The game creator says that you need to battle or catch 5 legendaries to activate the stone at Mt. Aleph.

The legendaries are located at:

  • Route 316 (Talk to the stone in the top middle of the map)
  • Underwater after Murk Swamp (This area is not accessible in the last patch unless you use a code to reach the equivalent of Pacifilog; requires dive)
  • The inside of Mt. Dalet (There’s a rock-like formation in the cave. You’ll need Strength to reach it)
  • The deep insides of Alt Baum (Talk to the stone at Luc’s Jupiter’s previous location. Climb the pillar you are transported to)
  • Frozen Grotto (Talk to the middle one of the 3 snowball patches)

All of these locations have a stone or scripture nearby. Talk to the stone to activate a mapchange with the odd stone. This will let you catch that Pokemon. In Frozen Grotto, it is initiated by a snowball patch on the right side of the map.
