Video Game / Pokémon Sweets Version

Go To

Pokémon Sweets Version is a ROM Hack from Pokémon FireRed.

To put it this way, about everything in the entire game is a Level Ate.

Tropes exclusive to this fangame:

  • Anthropomorphic Food: The Pokésweets are combinations of Pokémon and sweets. Divided into these categories: Cakes, Pies, Donuts, Candies, Cupcakes, Swirlies, Fudgies, Specials and Rare Sweets.
  • Autocannibalism: The Hunger Stat Ailment. When a Pokémon is afflicted with it, it loses HP every turn by nomming on itself.

  • Big "NO!": How Kyle reacts to his second loss outside the Rock Candy Mines.
  • Bizarro Elements: All the types are themed after fruits and flavors.
  • Color-Coded Characters: The Gym Leaders in this game seem to use more of a group of types in the same color rather than specializing in a single type. For example, the first Gym Leader uses Cherry, Strawberry and Apple-types, which are all red.
  • Color-Coded Elements: Other than a few overlaps, each types is allocated into a color: Vanilla is white, Cherry, Strawberry and Apple are red, Orange is... orange, Banana and Lemon are yellow, Lime is green, Blueberry is blue, Grape is purple, Raspberry is pink, and Chocolate is brown.
  • Damage Typing: Word of God confirmed that there is no physical/special split by elemental types.
  • Drunken Master: Gym Leader Lavender is a trainer-equivalent, as she stayed intoxicated throughout the battle.

  • Dual Boss: Ban and Lem fight together as the third gym leader.
  • Edible Theme Naming:
    • The names of the Pokésweets are named partly based on and their sweets motifs.
    • Locations are also named after various fruits and pastries.
  • Elemental Powers: There are 12 types total, in both games: Vanilla, Cherry, Strawberry, Apple, Orange, Banana, Lemon, Lime, Blueberry, Grape, Raspberry and Chocolate.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: This image shows the type chart present in this game.
  • Food Porn: If you're a sweets lover, expect to go into a trance when you read the Cookbook entries.
  • Game Mod: Of Pokémon FireRed.
  • Gingerbread House: Just as you thought many buildings play this straight, you get to encounter Reginger, a Pokésweet found in Ginger Woods.
  • Level Ate: Taken Up to Eleven, where the entire map is made up of sweets.
  • Like Cannot Cut Like: All types except for Vanilla and Chocolate resist themselves.

  • Mutual Disadvantage: Banana and Lemon share a mutual weakness towards each other.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The first gym leader prides in rock-hard defense, referencing Brock's specialty in Rock-types.
  • Non-Elemental:
    • Vanilla-type plays it better than Normal-types, where it is neutral against all types, including itself.
    • Downplayed with Chocolate-type, where other than being super-effective against itself, it has no type effectiveness against others either.
  • No-Sell:
    • For stat ailments, Apple-types cannot starve, while Orange-types cannot be burned.
    • Lime-types are unaffected by Cherry Seed.
    • For weather, hail will not damage Grape-types, while sandstorm will not damage Apple, Strawberry and Cherry-types.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Inverted with Grape, a purple-colored type that is the most inferior. It has only one type advantage (one of the least; second to Vanilla, tied with Chocolate) and three weaknesses (the second most after Orange).
  • Riddle for the Ages: According to Lolliwak's dex entry, no one will ever know how many licks it'll take to get to the center of its lollipop.
  • Shout-Out: When Mark loses at the bridge between Orange City and Orange Woods, he cries out "'Doh! I missed!", one of the Catchphrases of Wario from an early Mario Party game when he fails.
  • Standard Status Effect: Small changes from the original game include renaming Poison as Hunger and how burned Pokésweets are being baked.
  • Stealing the Credit: After you and your two rivals bust Team Sour from the Candy Manor, the third claims to be the one doing all the work instead.
  • Strawberry Shorthand: Strawberry exists as one of the 12 Pokésweet types.
  • Takes One to Kill One: Chocolate is weak against itself.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: One of your three rivals in the game who resembles Blue.
