Go To

Pokémon Glazed is a ROM Hack of the US version of Pokémon Emerald created by Lucbui, taking place in the wholly new continent of Tunod, following the adventures of a completely new trainer starting his/her journey To Be a Master.

Twelve years ago, you were born in a small town in Tunod region. Today is your birthday and usually, like other kids in the town, you will receive your first Pokémon. It will be your friend forever and protect you. But if you hurry into your journey, you could be in danger. You must have the best preparation before making a journey in Tunod. You don’t know what is ahead of you. As you travel around the Tunod region, you will meet with rivals, wild Pokémon and a new villainous team whose plans will put the world in jeopardy. Are you up to the challenge?


Pokémon Glazed features Pokémon up to Generation V that can be caught and trained, the possibility to explore two new continents, a surprising selection of starters (other than the Gen IV starters — Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup — the player has the option of picking a Shinx or a Riolu), numerous Legendaries and a brand new storyline. It is currently available as a Version 7 Beta, which is pretty much the complete game.


Tropes used in Pokémon Glazed:

  • Abusive Parents: Regina, towards Henri. Not much is seen onscreen, but it's implied that she did push her son toward becoming a Team Fusion grunt.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Terry, the Ground-type Gym Leader.
  • Ascended Meme: Whitney is now a member of the Johto Elite Four, likely a reference to her infamy in the original games.
  • Big Bad: Michael for the Tunod arc, Pius and Regina for the Johto and Rankor arc.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Percy's Cyndaquil, later a Quilava, seems very eager to throw himself into battle. Tanya of the Elite Four and her Dragonite also count.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: After she is defeated for the last time, Chelle says that she's going to take on the Hoenn League... and teases the Player Character that he/she won't be able to follow her, since the Hoenn region is not in the game.
  • Advertisement:
  • Church Militant: The Church of Alpha, led by Pius.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Unlike other regions, the Tunod Elite Four are not themed on a particular type of Pokémon. Instead, they use Pokémon who share a certain color scheme (pink for Rosaline, purple for Magnus, orange for Tanya, grey for Grey, and black for Blake).
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Blake, who, despite having a lot of Dark-type Pokémon is a good person.
  • Darker and Edgier: Not as much as, say, Pokémon Reborn or Pokémon Zeta and Omicron, but the storyline is a little darker than the average Pokémon game, and a few swear words are said here and there.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Michael, the Team Fusion leader, uses Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina in his final battle against the player. Tunod champion Blake also uses a Darkrai as his ace Pokémon, and Pius and Regina respectively use Lugia and Ho-oh in their final battle against the player.
  • Disc-One Nuke: The various 1st-stage pseudo-legendaries can be caught on a preserve just outside the first town. Sure, you still have to progress the game a little further to unlock the preserve, but it's still relatively early.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: The Water-type Gym Leader Flo and the orange-themed Elite Four Tanya both go barefoot.
  • The Dragon: Regina, to Michael. Until she becomes a Dragon Ascendant.
  • Eldritch Location: The cave where Palkia is found by Team Fusion, a srange place that bends over on itself so that one finds himself always walking in a circle.
  • Enemy Mine: Pius aids the player and Henri in stopping Team Fusion's conquest of the Bell Tower.
  • The Fundamentalist: Pius, leader of the Church of Alpha.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Michael, the Red-Scarfed Pikachu.
  • Heroic Mime: Averted! The protagonist actually speaks a few lines from time to time. Regina even lampshades the fact on one occasion.
  • Jerkass: Thor, the Poison-type leader from Rankor; and Regina.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Chelle. Being Silver's little sister, it's not hard to see where she got her more abrasive tendencies.
  • Mirror Match: The battle against Trainer!Mewtwo is a subversion: while he carries the same ‘mons you do at the same levels, his don’t have any moves learned from T Ms or H Ms, instead only carrying the sets they’d have naturally at that point.
  • Nintendo Hard: This game has a rather steep learning curve, though it's rather tame compared to others.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Rosaline of the Elite Four certainly seems to think so.
  • The Quiet One: Magnus of the Elite Four. And his Drapion as well.
  • Recursive Fanfiction: Pokemon Blazed Glazed is the Lucbui-approved re-make of Pokemon Glazed, which adds more moves, some Pokémon, and evens out the level curve (like mellowing out the Early Game Hell but also buffing the levels of the late-game to accomodate the wider move variety).
  • The Rival: Percy is the first one you'll meet, but there are also Cato, Chelle, and Tye.
    • A more hostile one is the Red-Scarfed Pikachu.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: An item you receive early on in the game allows you to understand what Pokémon are saying.
  • Stealth Pun: The dojo in Darkwood Town offers training in different stats. The Pokémon they all use are all from the Eevee family. (Think Effort Values.)
  • Take That!: A Flareon in one of the game's Pokémon Centers affirms that he's sick of his kind being badmouthed for their stats.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: The protagonist certainly thinks so when Regina has her minions set Ilex Forest on fire to flush out Celebi.
  • To Be a Master: Wouldn't be a Pokémon game without this trope.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Silver's Character Development from Pokémon Gold and Silver happily stuck. Also, Michael and the Red-Scarfed Pikachu.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Michael and Regina, at least until Regina divorces him.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Michael isn't exactly a graceful loser, but it stands out particularly when the player defeats him in the final battle atop Mt. Stratus, taking down Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. He then slips into temporary insanity when Mew shows up and begins destroying his labs along with his project to create the ultimate TM. He eventually gets better and decides to turn over a new leaf.
  • Walking Swimsuit Scene: Flo, the Water-type Gym Leader.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Pius sincerely wants to bring salvation to both humans and Pokémon. He's closed-minded and extreme about it, but he's still a sight better than the selfish and power-hungry Regina.
  • Whole Plot Reference: Team Fusion's scheme during the Johto saga is a rehash of Pokémon 2000, but with Ho-oh instead of Lugia. The three elemental orbs, referring to the three Beasts (who aren't actually involved in the plot) reference two more movies and even Pokémon Adventures.


How well does it match the trope?
