Update: I just updated the Pokemon Flora Sky Walkthrough link. The guide is now in English and in the Microsoft Word .docx format.
It's Pokemon time again here. If you remember I previously posted about Ciro's Pokemon Maker and made it available for download. Now I'm going to talk about a fantastic Pokemon Emerald-based emulation hack for the PC and the PSP – Pokemon Flora Sky.
What is Pokemon Flora Sky you ask? It's an edited version of Pokemon Emerald in which a new story is laid, new pokemons – coming from Generations IV and V – are to be caught, and where a whole new land is to be explored. I've been playing it myself and it has my approval.
It's kind of difficult to play, because even if you do a level grind on your Pokemon, the city Gym Leaders and your opponents would always be near or around your level. Sheer strength aside, a little bit of strategy would also be needed.
Pokemon Flora Sky features:
• Gen IV and V Pokemon, including Legendaries
• New storyline
• Day and night GUI
• New map, town, building and tree sprites
• New Pokemon Center options
Recently, Pokemon Flora Sky's final version has been released. It has lots of major and minor bug fixes, considering all the previous Pokemon Flora Sky versions were incomplete betas. So scroll on down below to download the Pokemon Flora Sky Final Version:

File name: 1986 - Pokemon - Emerald Version (U).gba
Status: Scanned, 0 security concerns found
*Note: The ROM you will be downloading is titled "1986 - Pokemon - Emerald Version (U).gba but it is already UPS patched to be Pokemon Flora Sky. Just paste and play.
And seeing that this Pokemon game is relatively new, you can't avoid getting lost on quests and prerequisites. So I'm also throwing in a Pokemon Flora Sky walkthrough guide to assist you in playing through the game.

Anyway, you can play Pokemon Flora Sky right in your desktop, but if you have gPSP installed in your Playstation Portable you can play it in there too.
With regards to cheating your way through Pokemon Flora Sky, it's possible through Ciro's Pokemon Maker. See, every new Pokemon sprite you can find in Pokemon Flora Sky has an existing equivalent from its base, in this case it's Pokemon Emerald. It's just a simple matter of changing the Pokemon sprites and cry, but its general code is the same all throughout. For example, you have Charizard in Pokemon Emerald. Here in Pokemon Flora Sky that same Charizard's sprite and cry has been replaced with Torterra. So basically if you use Charizard Pokemon Emerald modifier codes and apply it on Flora Sky, your Torterra will be modified to your liking. The only problem is, you have to find which Pokemon in Flora Sky is its equivalent in Emerald. Go figure.
Credits to Sky and the Pokemon Community forums for creating and spreading the Pokemon Flora Sky Final Version. And of course me, for redistributing it in patched download.
'Till my next installment.
