Pokémon Quartz
==Pokémon Quartz==
Another hack of Pokémon Ruby, released by the author as a patch file intended to be played by VBA users who already owned the Ruby cartridge and Sapphirehad downloaded its ROM image. ItsThe bootleg version's box art is a {{p|Gyarados}}. The game has a great deal of spelling and grammatical errors, which result from the hack being translated from Spanish. The game also contains swearing, profanity, and adult themes, normally absent from Pokémon games. Pokémon Quartz replaced all names and graphics of traditional Pokémon with new, made-up Pokémon, andabout tookthree quarters of which work very similar to identically numbered Pokémon, but many of which have either different learn sets or different types. The game takes place in a region known as "Corna", a heavily edited version of Hoenn, but requires the player to navigate a very different series of paths during gameplay.
While the best-known bootleg cartridge as played on the actual GBA contains serious glitches and errors, the current patch file release works well with VBA when the patch is applied to a legitimate image of an actual Ruby cartridge.
