40 Best Pokémon Fan Games & Rom Hacks Ever Made: The Ultimate List

Regardless of whether you love or hate the newer games, one thing is certain: we want more.

Whether you’re looking for something featuring every single Pokémon ever made, or an online game where you can catch and train Pokémon together with friends, there are plenty of ROM hacks and fan games offering just that.

Actually with so many around, it can be hard to choose the right one. And you never know whether you’re missing something amazing. It’s not like there’s some massive list covering all the best fan games in the Poké community… well, unless you count this one!

To help you find your next custom Pokémon adventure, I’ve done all the research for you. Take a look and see what grabs your attention.

 

40. Pokémon TRE: Team Rocket Edition

Pokémon TRE: Team Rocket Edition ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Ever since I was a child making my way through my first playthrough of Pokémon Crystal, I was fascinated with playing as one of the bad guys – even if it was a measly grunt.

If playing as a dastardly villain sounds like fun to you too, you can give this Pokémon Red hack a shot.

Team Rocket Leader Giovanni is on the lookout for a successor, and the competition is down to you and your sibling, two novice Team Rocket members.

You’ll have to go through an evil Pokémon adventure, beating Gym Leaders and eventually the Elite IV, to prove your worth.

It’s a great idea with a questionable execution, but it’s worth a try if you’re into the premise!

 

39. Pokémon Eclipse RPG

Pokémon Eclipse RPG ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Another longtime childhood fantasy of mine was playing Pokémon together with friends.

I mean sure, you could always connect two GBAs together to battle and trade.

But I mean actually questing and catching Pokémon on the field with your peeps.

While Nintendo seems reticent to give Pokémon the online capacities it deserves, many fan projects like Pokémon Eclipse RPG offer exciting alternatives to the official games.

Just register and play in your browser. Maybe this will be the online Pokémon adventure to finally hook you.

Though if it doesn’t, keep reading!

 

38. Pokémon Emerald Kaizo

Pokémon Emerald Kaizo ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the age-old ways of breathing new life into an older game you’ve already played a couple of times is to make it incredibly hard.

That’s what Pokémon Emerald Kaizo is here for.

Creator SinisterHoodedFigure is famous for making great Kaizo(ultra-hard) versions of classic Pokémon games, and this Pokémon Emerald hack is easily the best.

The trainers are more aggressive, and their teams are stronger. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Prepare to face some extra-treacherous routes, and beware of increased ambushes by Team Magma and Team Aqua.

If you’re up to the challenge, this won’t disappoint.

 

37. Pokémon Pink

Pokémon Pink ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

One of the most significant improvements introduced with Gen II was letting you choose your gender at the start of the game.

Pokémon Pink is a ROM hack of Blue that lets you venture through Kanto as Kris, the female protagonist from Pokémon Crystal, providing more representation and a new twist.

Jigglypuff, Pikachu, and Vulpix also replace the original starters, and the game features the newer Dark, Steel, and Fairy types.

 

36. Pokémon Polished Crystal

Pokémon Polished Crystal ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Speaking of Kris, Pokémon Crystal was the first Pocket Monster game I ever played. And I still look back on it fondly.

If you’re like me and want to re-experience the charm of gen 2, I recommend Pokémon Polished Crystal.

This ROM hack improves the base Pokémon Crystal game by making all 251 Pokémon catchable, introducing all new types up to Fairy, and even including the new Eeveelutions not originally present in those games.

If you like a challenge, I suggest you play it in the new Nuzlocke Mode.

 

35. Pokémon TPP (Red Anniversary)

Pokémon TPP (Red Anniversary) ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Another minor improvement on one of the older Pokémon titles is Pokémon TPP (Red Anniversary), made in 2015 to commemorate the worldwide phenomenon that was Twitch Plays Pokémon the previous year.

This interesting Twitch channel lets players vote on commands to input into the game, requiring collaboration to lead the player character to become a Pokémon Master.

The original Pokémon Red took around 16 days to complete, but this beefed-up version with all 151 Pokémon available and stronger trainers made the stream last almost 40 days straight.

 

34. Pokémon Orange

Pokémon Orange ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Islands, archipelagos, and other places where people’s lives are directly intertwined with the sea are the most exciting to explore.

The same goes for the Orange Islands, part of the Orange Archipelago, which is located near Kanto in the Pokémon World.

Pokémon Orange is a Crystal ROM hack that lets you explore and discover the wonders of this region, as a kid from Valencia Island.

Tasked by Professor Samson Oak to bring him the mysterious GS Ball, you’ll catch Pokémon, fight baddies like Team Rocket, and enjoy the sea breeze.

 

33. Pokémon Little Cup Red

Pokémon Little Cup Red ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Placing semi-arbitrary limitations on Pokémon battles is one of the best ways to keep things interesting, rather than just riding Scizor and Salamence to victory.

Pokémon Little Cup Red is built on that idea, but extends it to the entire game, reducing every critter in the game to level 5 and replacing any that didn’t have an “infant form” with a similar creature.

This title will force you into a hardcore strategy game, as your Pokémon can’t win EXP and gain levels, or anything of the sort.

It’s a great challenge. But it’s not impossible, thanks to some slight balance changes and a massive extinction of Zubat in caves.

 

32. Pokémon Mega Adventure

Pokémon Mega Adventure ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the most popular Pokémon fan games in recent memory is Pokémon Mega Adventure, a heavily combat-focused experience that’ll put your Pokémon Trainer skills to the test.

It has minimal story, but it makes up for it with a massive roster of 721 Pokémon, working Mega Evolutions, and a beautiful graphical style based on gen 3 titles.

The Akito Region is also a beautiful place to explore, with a couple of jaw-dropping places that’ll leave you wanting more.

 

31. Pokémon Black (GEN I ROM Hack)

Pokémon Black (GEN I ROM Hack) screenshot

Check Out This Game

Easily the most unusual entry in our list, and one of the most bizarre overall, has to be Pokémon Black.

And to clarify, this is the gen I ROM hack, not to be confused with the official game of the same name.

This interesting hack was inspired by one of the first creepypasta stories ever, following a guy who buys a bootleg “Pokémon Black” GBC cartridge from a garage sale.

Little did he know of the dark secrets hidden within.

You won’t be reaching the Elite IV in this ROM hack. But it’s terrific if you’re looking for something unsettling or just odd.

 

30. Pokémon Ash Gray

Pokémon Ash Gray ROM hack

Check Out This Game

For something less dark, let’s take a look at a Pokémon FireRed ROM hack that lets you relive Ash Ketchum’s anime adventure in game form.

This follows the anime’s story up to the Orange Islands, and rewards you for playing with his exact team setup whenever possible, though you don’t necessarily have to do it.

Many story events are waiting for you all around the region, which will remind you of different anime episodes, complete with the same characters and locales.

Also it replaces HMs with tools that Ash can carry in his backpack, rather than wasting party space on an HM slave.

 

29. Pokémon Flora Sky Story

Pokémon Flora Sky Story ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Legendary Pokémon tend to be giant bad-ass OP beasts.

But what if we had something cuter?

Pokémon Flora Sky Story is an Emerald ROM hack featuring the adorable Shaymin as the main Legendary critter, hence the name.

In this game, you’ll be helping Shaymin stop Groudon and Kyogre from destroying the world.

This hack includes 386 total Pokémon, featuring everyone from the fourth and fifth generations.

There are also plenty of mini-games, daily events, and a day/night system to keep things fresh.

 

28. Pokémon MMO 3D

Pokémon MMO 3D ROM hack

Check Out This Game

As a Pokémon and MMO fan, few things can get me more excited than connecting online with friends (or a bunch of strangers) to explore the world of pocket monsters together.

Many fan games are offering just that.

But Pokémon MMO 3D has them all beat in the graphics department. After all, it’s the only one to offer fully 3D graphics – and pretty good ones to boot.

Real-time battles are also a new concept that makes combat more dynamic, innovating rather than rehashing the same concept from the original games (like Nintendo does).

It gets updated pretty regularly, and you won’t have trouble finding someone to battle within seconds of logging on. Give it a try and see what you think!

 

27. Pokémon Glazed

Pokémon Glazed ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

At some point in our lives, we’ve all wished to the stars to bring the magic of Pokémon to our own, not-so-colorful world.

Well that’s exactly what’s begun to happen in Pokémon Glazed.

Regrettably, it wasn’t as awesome as we expected. And now you must adventure through the Tunod region in a bid to stop the impending disaster of dimensional collision.

This Emerald ROM hack also includes both Johto and the mysterious Rankor region, where you’ll find Pokémon from all around Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos.

 

26. Pokémon Blazed Glazed

Pokémon Blazed Glazed ROM hack

Check Out This Game

If you liked Glazed, you should consider Pokémon Blazed Glazed as well.

This fork of the original Pokémon Glazed adds a lot. Like new moves from recent generations that were missing from Glazed.

It also overhauls rival trainer teams and pokémon movesets, aiming to provide a better learning curve.

It also adds two new Eeveelutions – Def-Eevee and Off-Eevee. They’re Eevee’s first evolution, and from there, they branch out into the rest of the well-loved critters.

Both hacks are currently being worked on and updated, so it’s up to you to choose which you like the best (or try playing both!)

 

25. Pokémon Saffron

Pokémon Saffron ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Our next entry is the gorgeous-looking Pokémon Saffron, set in the Azira region during an event known as the “Great Migration”.

Once every decade, migrating Pokémon from all over the world pass through Azira at the same time, making it the most biodiverse place on the planet.

And giving Pokémon researchers like Professor Oak a lot to study.

As expected, he’ll need help in his endeavor.

So he recruits you, a local youth eager to set out on their Pokémon adventure. Isn’t that always the story?

South America heavily influences the region, and the Fakemon in the area & the story reflect its roots.

 

24. Pokémon Snakewood

Pokémon Snakewood ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

If you liked the creepy nature of Pokémon Black, but would rather play a full game than an interactive horror story, Pokémon Snakewood is here to please.

This Ruby ROM hack takes place some years after the original Gen III storyline.

A lot has happened in just a few years – including a zombie apocalypse.

You’ll play as the younger sibling of the original main character, on a quest to find out their whereabouts and fight the spreading horror.

Keeping up with the decay theme, your starter options are the poisonous Paras, Koffing, and Baltoy.

There are also many new Fakemon to catch, new evolutions, and zombified versions of classic ‘mons.

 

23. Pokémon Dark Rising

Pokémon Dark Rising ROM hack

Check Out This Game

If you’re the kind of person that can’t help but get sucked into incredibly long sagas like Game of Thrones or One Piece, you’ll fall prey to Pokémon Dark Rising in no time.

This fangame is heavily narrative-driven, and with time it has become the most extensive fan-made saga in the Pokémon universe.

It includes Dark Rising, Dark Rising 2, and Dark Rising: Order Destroyed.

While the story is fantastic, the gameplay doesn’t stay behind.

You’ll see Pokémon from most generations throughout your journey, and the addition of “Dream World” abilities is pretty neat.

 

22. Pokémon Gaia

Pokémon Gaia ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

I’ve always been interested in history and archaeology.

Places from times past are such a joy, which is why I love Pokémon Gaia.

This fantastic FireRed hack takes place in the storied region of Orbtus.

As the ancient seat of a long-gone civilization, the region is densely filled with hidden caves and ruined temples full of relics and mystery.

Other than the usual improvements like the addition of Fairy-type ‘mons, the game also features an in-battle Mega Evolution system, and lots of custom assets that set it apart from other hacks.

 

21. Pokémon Light Platinum

Pokémon Light Platinum ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the single most famous GBA-era hacks is Pokémon Light Platinum, a modification of the original Pokémon Ruby.

It’s vaguely based on Pokémon Platinum for the DS. Which is obvious since Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Arceus are the centerpieces of the story.

The game overhauls the Pokémon League by replacing all Gym Leaders and the Elite IV. A new concept for sure.

It also adds a Pokémon World Championship event after completing the League.

 

20. Pokémon Clover

Pokémon Clover ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

The next hack is not for the thin-skinned. It includes some of the most offensive and politically incorrect jokes and references you’ll find in a Pokémon game.

It’s to be expected, considering this ROM hack of FireRed is based on the memes and culture of the infamous 4chan Pokémon imageboard.

In fact, the game is made by several users of the site’s / vp / board – the one dedicated to Pokémon.

If that sounds like your kind of thing, well I can’t recommend it enough.

With over 386 original fakemon and almost 70 hours of content to go through, this is a total blast.

 

19. Pokémon Fire Ash

Pokémon Fire Ash ROM hack

Check Out This Game

We’ve already covered Pokémon AshGray, which let you play as Ash up to the Orange Islands.

But what lies beyond that for our Pallet Town boy?

If you wish to find out, you should play Pokémon Fire Ash.

This follows our anime protagonist on a massive adventure from Kanto to the Alola Region, including the Orange Islands and even the Battle Frontier.

With a staggering amount of over 50 gyms and over 800 different critters to catch, this will keep you hooked for days (read: months).

 

18. Pokémon Adventure Red

Pokémon Adventure Red ROM hack

Check Out This Game

The Pokémon anime is amazing.

But there’s a wealth of Pokémon manga and novels released in Japan every year, and the Pokémon Adventures manga series is one of the best.

This FireRed hack endeavors to offer players a chance to play through its storyline, following protagonist Red’s journey from Pallet Town to the rest of the world.

It includes characters, scenes, and battles taken straight from the manga, which is pretty good.

With several playable characters, different outfits, a day/night cycle, and overhauled visuals, Pokémon Adventure Red is almost too good to be true.

 

17. Pokémon Theta Emerald RENEV

Pokémon Theta Emerald RENEV ROM hack

Check Out This Game

Pokémon ROM hack creators tend to pronounce their hacks “complete”, then reappear the next year with a new massive update because their OCD couldn’t let them ignore any shortcomings.

In the case of Pokémon Theta Emerald, there have been three entire releases.

The original, the EX version, and now the RENEV version.

This latest installment showcases the most extensive Pokémon roster so far, along with new moves and features.

There’s a lot to talk about in this Pokémon Emerald ROM hack.

But my favorite aspect has to be the possibility of fusing pokémon, and the new forms for critters like Rotom and Deoxys.

 

16. Pokémon Sage

Pokémon Sage ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

A lot of the most fantastic fan games in existence are, regrettably, still incomplete.

That’s the case with Pokémon Sage. But don’t let that keep you from trying their 10h+ demo.

This game takes place in the Urobos region, heavily influenced by Latin America.

The environments, lore, and even new Pokémon have clear roots in these culturally rich lands.

The game uses gen 5 as a base, but includes some new twists like Mega Evolutions.

 

15. PokeMMO

PokeMMO ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

PokeMMO is just one of many Pokémon-based Massive Multiplayer Online games, letting players enjoy Pokémon Black, Emerald, and FireRed in the company of their peeps.

Of course, there’s online PVP. So you can show the world who’s boss if you need to.

An extensive collection of clothes and accessories is also available to make your character look super fly.

It gets regular updates, and there’s always someone to play with thanks to its enormous popularity.

Plus, the name pretty much gives it all away. If you’re into MMOs and into Pokémon, give this a whirl.

 

14. Pokémon Clockwork

Pokémon Clockwork ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Pokémon Clockwork is a fan game set in the mysterious Rosari region.

It’s full of diverse, breathtaking landscapes and many quests to boot.

The shady Team Epsilon is, as you’d expect, planning on using some ancient power for their benefit.

It’s up to you to stop their wrongdoing and save the Rosari region.

Other than that, you’ll get to catch pokémon from the first four generations and use them to beat a regular-size Pokémon League.

Altogether it’s around 40 hours of pure pokéfun.

 

13. Pokémon Godra

Pokémon Godra ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Customization is one thing Nintendo and Game Freak have focused on improving the most with the last couple of official releases.

Still, they never go past the aesthetic and into the gameplay.

Pokémon Godra revolves around the idea of choice, introducing several more RPG elements and a branching storyline depending on the decisions you make as you engage with the Godra region’s conflicts.

You can join the military, become a Safari Zone Warden, or even climb to the very top and enter the Elite IV.

Plus, you get a massive roster of 128 starters to choose from.

That’s almost as many as gen 1’s total Pokémon!

 

12. Pokémon FireRed: Rocket Edition

Pokémon FireRed: Rocket Edition ROM hack

Check Out This Game

We started off our list with Pokémon TRE, a Gen I hack that let you play as a member of Team Rocket.

While that game is pretty good on its own, it isn’t the best execution of the “play as the villains” concept.

That would be Pokémon FireRed: Rocket Edition, a FireRed ROM hack with several higher degrees of complexity.

In this hack, you’ll see the seedy underbelly of the Kanto region and the thriving crime scene beneath the surface.

Sociopathic scientists and corrupt Gym Leaders are only some of the awful people you’ll get a chance to meet as you uncover the “true story” running parallel to Red’s original adventure.

And yes, you’re allowed to steal as many Pokémon as you wish.

 

11. Pokémon Planet

Pokémon Planet ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Yet another Pokémon MMORPG enters the fray, bringing with it a lot of the same charm features other options, but with a much larger scope.

The game aims to make all regions available for exploration, letting you catch critters from all generations in their natural habitat.

You can also participate in multiplayer events with friends or other random Trainers just like you.

You can play this game in your browser after a quick registration, so don’t pass it by without taking a closer look.

 

10. Pokémon Uranium

Pokémon Uranium ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the most notorious Pokémon fan games is Pokémon Uranium, which got a lot of its fame from the intense campaign launched by Nintendo to erase it from existence.

Luckily, nothing ever truly disappears from the Internet.

It’s actually become much easier to get a hold of it.

With the graphics style of Gen IV and a total of 190 critters, including several new Fakemon and an all-star roster of the best official’ mons, Pokémon Uranium is one of the most polished and complete fan games you can play.

Other than that, it’s a pretty standard Pokémon adventure that’ll take you through the Tandor region, beating eight Gyms. Classic stuff we all know and love.

 

9. Pokémon Orange Islands

Pokémon Orange Islands ROM hack

Check Out This Game

My all-time favorite FireRed hack is Pokémon Orange Islands, which follows Ash’s adventure through the Orange Archipelago, as seen on the anime series.

While many other fan creations explore this period in Ash’s life, none do so with as much love and attention to detail as Pokémon Orange Islands.

Believe me, there’s nothing quite like Team Rocket in this game.

While the game includes only the first 151 Pokémon, it does feature the updated type chart and Physical/Special/Status split.

It’s time to show the Orange Island’s four resident Gym Leaders who’s boss.

 

8. Pokémon Reborn

Pokémon Reborn ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Another remarkably famous fan game is Pokémon Reborn, featuring Pokémon up to gen 7.

After picking from 21 starters, you’ll enter the Reborn region.

Here crime runs rampant, and society has fallen into disarray. Will you be the hero to bring peace to these lands?

This hack’s most unique aspect has to be the Field Effects present in most areas, which take the degree of strategics needed to win Pokémon battles up a notch.

It also features music from incredible composer GlitchxCity, which is simply fantastic and elevates the game to new heights.

 

7. Pokémon Rejuvenation

Pokémon Rejuvenation ROM hack

Check Out This Game

With the success of Pokémon Reborn came new inspiration and motivation for the team behind it to work on something new.

After a while, we got Pokémon Rejuvenation.

Set in the region of Aevium, the game showcases the local efforts to rebuild and improve after a terrible natural disaster devastated the area some years ago.

In this adventure you’ll have to take up arms – or rather, Pokémon – to protect your people and stop the sinister Team Xen from plunging the region back into chaos.

While the game looks just like gen 3, which I love, it includes Pokémon up to gen 7.

 

6. Pokémon Brown (2014)

Pokémon Brown (2014) ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

Pokémon Brown is a hack of the original Pokémon Red, allowing players to visit the industrialized region of Rijon.

The industrialization process has given rise to five new elemental types: Gas, Sound, Wood, Wind, and Abnormal.

There are 73 new Fakemon that thrive in the area on top of Kanto’s 151.

Pokémon Brown was one of the first-ever completed ROM hacks. So it’s arguably part of Pokémon ROM hack history at this point.

But ther eis actually a much-upgraded version released by the original creator in 2014, so that’s the best version to snag.

 

5. Pokémon Prism

Pokémon Prism ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the main reasons Pokémon Brown got updated in 2014 was to make it compatible with Pokémon Prism, the sequel.

Picking up where Pokémon Brown left off, the game drops you on the new region of Naljo.

But it also lets you come back to Rijon after you clear the Pokémon League.

Getting some strong gen 2 vibes here…

Easily the most interesting additions are some areas that can only be explored by Pokémon, putting you directly in control of your team in a way reminiscent of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.

On top of the previous 225 Pokémon, there are 28 new ones only found in Naljo. Definitely a fan game everyone should try out.

 

4. Pokémon Showdown

Pokémon Showdown ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

If you’re into competitive play, I don’t have to explain what Pokémon Showdown is.

While not strictly a game, Pokémon Showdown probably has the largest playerbase. And is regarded as the best way to battle with random Trainers online.

What makes it so suitable for competitive play is that it follows tournament rules closely, and gives each Pokémon the same stats they have in the latest official game.

 

3. Pokémon Phoenix Rising

Pokémon Phoenix Rising ROM hack

Check Out This Game

One of the most relevant Pokémon fan games nowadays is Phoenix Rising.

It takes place in the Hawthorne region, where you’ll be able to experience a relatively standard Pokémon adventure with a branching storyline depending on your narrative choices.

Besides making Pokémon a bit closer to a modern RPG, the game features new Mega Evolutions and even a new kind of critter – Relic Pokémon.

Relic Tyranitar is among the most bad-ass things I’ve seen in weeks.

If you’re interested, I recommend you give the development team a follow on their Twitter account. And keep an eye out for updates!

 

2. Pokémon Insurgence

Pokémon Insurgence ROM hack screenshot

Check Out This Game

I’ve spent years patiently waiting for Nintendo/Game Freak to get their act together and release a more “mature” Pokémon game for their older audiences.

Since that doesn’t seem like it’ll happen anytime soon, I’ve turned to fan games in my search for a gritty storyline – and that led me to Pokémon Insurgence.

I won’t spoil it.

But considering it involves cults and cruel experiments on Pokémon, you can look forward to a pretty dark narrative.

The game also introduces several new features such as Delta Pokémon, Armored Pokémon, in-depth character customization, and more.

 

1. Pokémon Revolution Online

Pokémon Revolution Online ROM hack

Check Out This Game

It’s tough to pronounce the “best” Pokémon fan game, when there are so many great ones with different takes on what makes a Pokémon game fun.

Still, I can’t help but marvel at the polish and ambition put into Pokémon Revolution Online, which is both the best Pokémon fan game and the best Pokémon MMO.

Meet people, join or found a guild, and explore the regions of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh while training your Pokémon together.

There are also mini-games and plenty of extra activities to keep you entertained whenever you’re not training your Pokémon.

Plus, it’s entirely free to play. So give it a try, not much to lose and plenty of Pokéfun to gain!

Best Pokémon ROM Hacks

Contents

This post was last updated on September 1, 2021

Pokémon is one of the franchises with the largest and most prolific fandoms. There have been many original games released by Nintendo, but still, for some fans, it is not enough – they want to experience more adventures in the world of the “pocket monsters.”

For this reason, more and more Pokémon ROM hacks appear – they are the video games that have been altered by skillful fans and, as a result, achieved a totally new story and appearance with different regions to explore. As more and more modifications appear, you are provided with almost endless possibilities, characters, and storylines.

However, with so many games to choose from, you may find it hard to find the ones that are most worth your attention. To help you with the selection, we have prepared a list of the best Pokémon ROM hacks ever made. So, just prepare your Pokéballs and get ready for catching them all!

Pokémon Dark Rising

Pokemon Dark Rising

If you like incredibly long sagas, such as One Piece, you will likely get sucked into Pokémon Dark Rising games immediately. They are very narrative-driven ROM hacks, and they can get you deep into the story. It is now famous as the most extensive Pokémon saga made entirely by fans. It has three games so far:

  • Dark Rising
  • Dark Rising 2
  • Dark Rising: Order Destroyed

It is not only the story that is excellent here – but the gameplay is absolutely fantastic, too. What is more, there is a wide range of Pokémon for you to catch and train – you can see creatures from almost every generation in this ROM hack. Apart from that, adding the “Dream World” abilities is definitely a fantastic icing on the cake.

Pokémon Gaia

Pokémon Gaia

Pokémon Gaia is one of the most famous Pokémon ROM hacks based on the Fire Red version and developed by Spherical Ice. It strongly resembles an original game – it provides the players with a full Pokémon experience, including an exciting new story and engaging gameplay.

There are some excellent extras in this ROM hack worth mentioning. First, the soundtrack – even though most of the music is taken from the original games (Fire Red and Ruby), some new outstanding tracks have been added as well. For example, the Elder Knights’ battle theme, the region’s evil team, sounds better than most officially made songs for the Third Generation.

 Apart from that, the game features a lot of entirely new sprites for characters and a well-developed storyline. For a ROM hack, it is really great content that every true fan can enjoy.

Pokémon Glazed

Pokémon Glazed is one of the best Pokémon ROM hacks based on the Emerald version of the game. It starts when your character has just turned twelve and is allowed to choose their Pokémon companion. However, the Tunod region situation is challenging – there is a mysterious power sending the real world and the Pokémon world on a collision course.

During the game, you will meet strange teams with a mysterious purpose, make friends and allies, and cooperate with other trainers to make the world peaceful again.

Also, in this ROM hack, you will have the chance to meet your favorite legendary Pokémon again and play the refreshed version of the Emerald game with new skills and items, and see the magnificently designed maps, buildings, and the whole environment.

Importantly, you have access to five Starters instead of three to select from. What is more, you can explore different regions than in the Emerald Pokémon game.

Pokémon Blazed Glazed

It happens that the best Pokémon ROM hacks are not only frequently updated, but also thoroughly improved and released by fans as a totally new version of the game.

Pokémon Blazed Glazed is an excellent example of that – it is actually an enhanced version of Pokémon Glazed. The story in this ROM hack is basically the same – the world is in chaos, and your character picks their first Pokémon and tries to save both worlds. You still have five Starters to choose from and the Dream World Pokémon.

Nevertheless, there are many new features added to this game. For instance, you can find Pokémon Generation IV to VI and discover some new moves. What is more, different Pokémon are added to various locations of this ROM hack.

Also, there are some Pokémon move updates, which means they do not learn their default moves in this game.

Pokémon Brown

Pokémon Brown

Pokémon Brown is one of the ROM hacks based on the original Pokémon Red. In this game, we can visit the industrialized region of Rijon. As a result of the industrialization process, five new elemental types of Pokémon emerged: Wood, Wind, Sound, Gas, and Abnormal. Moreover, you can encounter 73 new Fakemon (new Pokémon created by fans) living in the area on top of Kanto’s 151.

Interestingly, this game was one of the first-ever made Pokémon ROM hacks. If you are interested in the history of this franchise’s fan-made games, it is still worth playing.

Keep in mind when you finish Pokémon Brown, you can proceed to its sequel called Pokémon Prism.

Pokémon Prism

Pokémon Prism

In 2014, there was a significant update to Pokémon Brown to make it compatible with this ROM hack’s sequel. The story of this game is consistent with its predecessor and picks up where it left off. You start the game in the new region of Naljo. However, after battling all the gym leaders and clearing the Pokémon League, you can go back to Rijon as well.

One of the most exciting features of this Pokémon ROM hack is the fact that there are some areas added that can be explored by Pokémon only. In this way, you can control your team like in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games.

Also, apart from the previous 225 Pokémon, you can find 28 new ones present in Naljo only. Pokémon Prism is definitely one of the best ROM hacks, packed with new content, so every fan of this franchise should enjoy it! 

Pokémon Light Platinum

Pokémon Light Platinum

Pokémon Light Platinum is an excellent ROM hack of Pokémon Ruby. What makes it distinct from the original game even at first glance is edited graphics, but that is not the only change. You can visit the Zhery Region there and battle many new rivals.

 What is more, you can check your skills while fighting the region’s great gym leaders and amazingly challenging Elite Four, as well as the Champion. Moreover, you can catch and train Pokémon from such areas as Hoenn, Kanto, Sinnoh, and Johto.

Also, remember that there are many items and moves you can assemble while playing this game. Apart from that, the player can participate in a few special events, including the Pokémon World Championship. This championship can be treated as the endgame content after dominating the Elite Four.

Pokémon Light Platinum is a well-developed ROM hack, and you can play it for like twenty-four hours or more.

Pokémon Dark Cry

Pokémon Dark Cry

One of the most characteristic things about Pokémon Dark Cry is that it is quite a complex story. In this Pokémon ROM hack, your character wakes up in a cavern with everything around being highly contrasted. There are two people, remaining by a shady special raised area who are talking about a “Shadow Plate.” You go after your Pokémon, but it turns out they are not there. Then, you notice a man with an “R” on his shirt. You try to stop him, but he just walks directly past you.

This guy plays out an unusual custom, followed by a huge quake and a goliath shadow getting nearer and nearer you. Suddenly, you wake up and realize that it was only a dream. You look at the clock, and you notice with horror that you are already late for getting your Pokémon. As time goes by, you realize that this weird dream is becoming real. Sounds like a creepy story!

In Pokémon Dark Cry, you can visit a brand new region called TrionPokePaper. What is more, this game features a daily news source and level cap increase.

Also, the gameplay is varied with a lot of side quests and mini-games. It is one of the best ROM hacks of the Pokémon Fire Red, which provides nearly perfect gameplay as many players claim. It is also highly appreciated for its excellent scripting and great mapping.

Pokémon Phoenix Rising

Pokémon Phoenix Rising

This game is considered to be one of the most relevant Pokémon ROM hacks by numerous fans. It is set in the Hawthorne region and provides you with a relatively standard Pokémon adventure with a story developing in accordance with your narrative decisions.

This game makes Pokémon more similar to a modern RPG, which can be really exciting for a fan of this genre. Apart from that, it is worth knowing that this ROM hack features new Mega Evolutions and also a new kind of creature – Relic Pokémon. One of the most impressive ones is definitely Relic Tyranitar!

Remember that this game is frequently updated, so if you want to know more about its development, you can follow its Twitter account.

Pokémon Omega Red

Pokémon Omega Red is another ROM hack of the original Pokémon Fire Red, but lots of new features were added to the game. For instance, you have here all 807 Pokémon (including the ones from newer areas) in the Kanto region when this story takes place.

What is more, there are Alolan forms, mega-evolutions, a Fairy type, and many new moves – wow, that sounds like an entirely different experience from the original game!.

One of the most distinct characteristics of Pokémon Omega Red is that it is much more difficult than Pokémon Fire Red, so it provides an experienced player with an exciting challenge. All the gym leaders are hard to beat, with their full team of Pokémon.

What is more, every trainer in this game has been significantly buffed. If the new Pokémon games are too easy for you and you are looking for something more demanding, you will undoubtedly like Pokémon Omega Red!

Pokémon Ash Gray

Pokémon Ash Gray

Again, this a famous ROM hack of Pokémon Fire Red. Its story directly follows the one you remember from the very first season of the anime. So, obviously, you play as Ash Ketchum!

Also, every big fan of the series will notice that this game’s opening is very similar to episode 1 – Ash is late to get his first Pokémon and ends up with Pikachu. Interestingly enough, there are even parts of some of the Pokémon movies in this ROM hack.

It is possible to get all the Pokémon Ash had during his journey in the anime, but you are not limited to use these creatures exclusively. After all, it is a ROM hack, so you can also catch some Pokémon of your choice, and you are not obliged to use the creatures you get as the story progresses.

However, bear in mind that to keep the consistency with the beginning of the series, such features like Mega Evolution or Pokémon from newer generations are not available. Also, there are no HMs, so to make HM moves, you need to use items.

All in all, Pokémon Ash Gray provides standard Pokémon gameplay, but a really decent one. If you really like the anime and you would like the story to reflect the one you already know, this is one of the best Pokémon ROM hacks for you.

Pokémon Insurgence

Pokémon Insurgence

Many fans have been waiting for a long time to get more “mature” Pokémon games from their favorite franchise, but so far, they did not get any from Nintendo/Game Freak.

No worries, though, because that is what ROM hacks are for – to fulfill those fan wishes that the original creators have not managed to fulfill in their games yet!

In Pokémon Insurgence, you will find a gritty storyline. We cannot tell you too much because it must not be spoilt, but you should know that it involves cults and cruel experiments on Pokémon, so you can expect a pretty dark narrative!

Moreover, this ROM hack provides you with some new features, including Armored Pokémon, Delta Pokémon, detailed character customization, and much more!

Pokémon TRE: Team Rocket Edition

Pokémon TRE: Team Rocket Edition

TRE is not your typical Pokémon ROM hack of the Red version as it allows you to become one of the bad guys! Namely, the Team Rocket Leader, Giovanni, looking for a successor. There are only two competitors left to get this position – you and your sibling, two novice Team Rocket members. 

The gameplay is about going through an evil Pokémon adventure, beating the gym leaders, and finally, the Elite IV, to show that you are worth becoming Giovanni’s successor. If you like to play games as a dastardly villain, you will like this Pokémon ROM hack for sure!

Pokémon Mega Emerald X and Y Edition

Pokémon Mega Emerald X and Y Edition

This game is an interesting ROM hack of Pokémon Emerald but with some essential elements taken from Pokémon X and Y. The story may not be that fascinating, but it is a decent Pokémon game with its twists and turns. At first glance, this ROM hack may appear just like the Emerald version, but there are some new Pokémon with sprites edited particularly for this game!

It is often appreciated that this game has Pokémon from Generations I to VI, but it does not mean there are all of them. Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that you can find all the Legendary Pokémon from those six generations. You just need to explore many different areas from all the regions to catch them all!

Also, there are Primal Pokémon and the Mega Evolutions in this ROM hack, so you will not be bored for sure. If you liked Pokémon Emerald and would like to spend more time on this game’s variation, go for it!

Pokémon Unbound

Pokémon Unbound

Many fans consider this game to be one of the best Pokémon ROM hacks for Generation III, as it attempts to provide the classic critter-raising RPG and kind of MMO gameplay. Its huge advantage is high customization and an open world.

There are Pokémon from all generations added, and the battle system is updated so that it can resemble a modern one more accurately. You can find there Fairy types, Mega Evolutions, and a Physical/Special split!

What is more, one of the most significant features you may like about this ROM hack is the addition of daily quests and monthly rewards, like the ones you know from the mobile game. It is undoubtedly a good move, especially as many people play the best ROM hacks on their smartphones.

Pokémon Clover

Pokémon Clover

If you do not need to play with actual Pokémon, and you like to check out how creative the fans are with coming up with their Fakemon, then Pokémon Clover can be a good game for you. Although it is a ROM hack of Fire Red, it is an entirely new game with barely any elements of the original.

However, take into account that Pokémon Clover is based on the inside jokes and the overall phenomenon of the infamous imageboard 4chan (particularly the /vp/ Pokémon board).

It has actually been created as a collaborative project of active users of the /vp/ board who put their effort into designing each of the386 original Fakemon.

It sounds cool, but you need to be warned that many of those Fakemon are not politically correct and can be considered offensive, so discretion is recommended.

Pokémon Mega Power

It is a ROM hack of Pokémon Emerald, but with a new story and numerous distinct sprites. In this game, your mission is to make the most powerful Pokémon. To do this, you have performed many experiments, but you are running out of money. However, there is a mysterious financier who comes to the rescue. You decide to go on an adventure, but then you realize that this financier may use the money to manipulate the strongest Pokémon creation.

The gameplay in this ROM hack works like the one from the original game. However, in Pokémon Mega Power, there are also new areas, such as the Sevii Islands, Ivara, and Lander. What is more, the advantages of this game also include having all the Mega Evolutions and some of the Generation IV-VII Pokémon available.

Pokémon Saffron

It is one of the best ROM hacks when it comes to being up-to-date. Namely, it contains Pokémon from every generation, even Sword & Shield! This game’s story takes place deep within South America, in the Azira region, where several Pokémon species stop during their yearly migrations.

Once a decade, a crazy number of migratory patterns coincide there, and it becomes the most biodiverse place on the planet. Hence, the best spot to catch new Pokémon as well! You can find over 280 of the most popular Pokémon roaming around there.

An interesting feature in this game, not common in other ROM hacks, is that the first Pokémon a trainer catches always walks with them, even if they are just NPCs. That is so cute!

Pokémon Adventure Red

best pokémon rom hacks - Pokémon Adventure Red

There are not only numerous Pokémon games and lots of seasons of the anime – a lot more media from this franchise come out every year. For instance, there is Pokémon Adventure manga, following the exploits of Red from Pallet Town. This is the protagonist you may remember from the first generation of the Pokémon games.

Pokémon Adventure Red is one of the best Pokémon ROM hacks that are associated with this manga – it basically re-tells its story in a game form. You can follow Red’s travel through many different regions, including Alola!

The main advantages of this game are:

  • Day/Night system
  • Custom sprites
  • 255 level cap (yes, that is not a mistake!)
  • Sew types like Shadow or Fusion Pokémon

This ROM hack is so detailed that it could easily compete with the official games. If you like well-developed ROM hacks that provide many hours of fantastic gameplay, this game can be one of the best suggestions for you!

Conclusion

We have gathered some of the best Pokémon ROM hacks ever made, but there are many more of them available on the internet, as the fans of this franchise are outstandingly prolific and come up with more and more ideas for new games.

You do not have to wait for the next official game to be released – you can explore new areas and experience new adventures with fan-made ROM hacks!

Some of the most original ROM hacks provide you with, for example, the possibility to play as a villain, a creepy storyline, custom-made Fakemon, and many other features. It is an awesome solution, especially at the time when you have to stay home a lot.

You certainly will not be bored with that many excellent ROM hacks that are as good as the original games or even better.

Good luck with your new Pokémon adventure!

15 Best Pokemon ROM Hacks Of 2021

I’ve been playing around with the best Pokemon ROM Hacks for years now, and each of them never fail to do something new.

That’s thanks to the incredibly talented Pokemon community who spend months, if not years building these ROM hacks in order to help gamers get through those rough times.

These Pokemon ROM hacks are some of the best on the internet. Here you’ll find a list of our favourites. Some have been tweaked slightly, and some feel like completely new games.

If you’re new to Pokemon ROM hacks and the best Pokemon emulators, then do not worry.

All you need is to download the ROMs using the links under each section and then use the correct emulator on your phone, PC/Mac, or even on the best retro handhelds in order to play them.

So let’s dive into some of the best Pokemon ROM hacks you can play right now!

1. Pokemon GS Chronicles

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon GS Chronicles

Pokemon GS Chronicles has been receiving a lot of praise throughout 2021, and that’s quite simply because it’s one of the best Pokemon ROM hacks out there.

It’s based on the old classic Pokemon Gold and Silver games, which as you know was one of the best Gameboy Advance games ever. But now, it has been tweaked, modified and upgraded into a brand new game which sticks to the storyline, but with even more depth.

Some of the new features that have been added to Pokemon GS Chronicles are Mega Evolutions, added Gen 4 -6 Pokemon, a map based of HGSS, new locations, new time based wild Pokemon, and Pokemon Rides which replace HM’s.

What makes this one of the best Pokemon ROM hacks out there is due to the sheer amount of updates this game gets. It’s continuously being managed, with bugs being fixed all the time, new updates and a huge community behind it that can help you when you are struggling.

If there’s any to download, it’s this one.

2. Pokemon Team Rocket Edition

team rocket edition best pokemon rom hacks

Imagine playing the classic Pokemon Red game, but in Team Rocket’s shoes? Well, now you can because of the incredible Pokemon community!

Technically Pokemon Team Rocket Edition is a remake of Pokemon Fire Red, but that was a remake of Red, so I’ll let you decide on that one!

In this game you play as a member of Team Rocket. Here you will steal, and cheat your way to the top, engaging with many members of the evil gang. I don’t want to ruin much of the storyline because it’s one you just have to play, but in this game you’ll learn more about Team Rocket than you can ever imagine.

You come across a wide number of fan based conspiracy theories, you steal players Pokemon, and you come across some very familiar characters in a different perspective.

This takes a classic game, and flips it on its head. If you’re a fan of one of the best Gameboy Color games, I recommend giving this a go.

3. Pokemon Light Platinum

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon light platinum

Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire was a classic for the Gameboy Advance and sold over 16 million units, which just goes to show how good it was.

If you’re looking for a game that’s based around that incredible game then Pokemon Light Platinum is the one to go for.

This Pokemon ROM Hack allows you to travel across not one, but two regions known as Zhery and Lauren. WesleyFG, the legend behind this rom hack has also added in new leaders, the Elite Four, rivals which you may remember and a boat load of Pokemon from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova.

That’s a lot of Pokemon!

If that wasn’t enough, this game allows you to travel across new dimensions, catch every single legendary Pokemon up to Unova and it features a huge final event called the Pokemon World Championship.

This event rounds of the game nicely and makes you feel accomplished once completed. This is one of the best Pokemon ROM Hacks for those of you that love Ruby & Sapphire!

4. Pokemon Gaia

Pokemon Gaia

It seems the Pokemon community really like Fire Red hacks, and this is another one, just with a much bigger “twist” than most.

The ROM hack starts with Professor Redwood noticing an increase in the region seismic activity and asks local Pokemon trainers to figure out why.

This game introduces new Pokemon from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and even Kalos, making your team a huge mix from all generations. With that comes the ability to teach them modern day abilities and even mega evolve them in battle.

This ROM hack updates all of the sprites, moves, HM’s, trainers and building illustrations too, giving it a slightly different look compared to other Fire Red hacks.

One of my personal favourite additions is that fact you can climb walls, and even discover underwater regions too!

It’s worth a download, because hey, it’s on our top 5!

5. Pokemon Glazed

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - pokemon glazed

This is a game that I stumbled across and absolutely loved. Pokemon Glazed is about mystery and confusion when an unexpecting problem occurs throughout the region.

A mysterious power is sending the Pokemon world and the real world on a collision cource and it’s your goal to find out why all while exploring ancient ruins, mysterious Pokemon and a scarfed Pikachu that’s angrier than a mini chihuahua.

When you get to your 12th birthday you’re able to choose from not 3, not 4 but 5 different starters, and the Pokemon throughout your world come from the Tunod, Johto and Rankor regions giving you a very odd mix of Pokemon to catch.

This Pokemon ROM hack has also introuced “Dream World” Pokemon which may give you a slighty insight into the story line.

If new Pokemon wasn’t enough you can also catch all legendaries from Kanto to Sinnoh and eight more from the Unova region.

This is one to add to your collection if you’re looking for more of the best Pokemon ROM hacks to add to your collection. The story line won it for me!

6. Pokemon Dark Rising

Pokemon Dark Rising

Do you ever have really weird dreams about Pokemon? Yeah, so do I, but imagine a game based off a dream where a Pokemon asks to you to help it save the world?

The average person would probably think it was a nightmare, but that to me sounds like the best dream ever. Pokemon Dark rising bases its storyline off of just that, so when you talk to your best friend about it, it turns out he had the exact same dream!

This ROM hack might not be as “big” as some others on the list but that doesn’t devalue the gaming experience at all. In this game there’s over 380 Pokemon to catch, from regions such as Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova.

It stays close to the classic Pokemon storyline, which features Gyms, bad guys and puzzles. But what makes this ROM hack so good is that it brings modern day Pokemon, moves and features into the game, with a polished look.

This is a ROM hack for those of you that want to keep it old school, but like some of the newer generations features such as Dream World abilities etc.

7. Pokemon Flora Sky

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon flora sky game case plus modded gameplay

This is one I haven’t personally played but I know a few people who have, and they’ve only said good things about it.

Pokemon Flora Sky starts off with a battle between the legendary Pokemon Dialga and Palkia. Once the epic battle has finished they leave behind a open portal between the Town World unleashing Giratina into the region which comes with a lot of problems.

It’s your job to close the portal before it’s too late, all while training your Pokemon and coming up against Team Magma and Aqua who are trying to catch legendary Pokemon to take over the world.

The ROM hack features a never seen before story line, new events featuring a wide number of legendary Pokemon such as Mew, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Shaymin and more.

The world is filled with over 380 Pokemon for you to catch, new mini games, new moves, items, HM’s and a wide number of new characters which you’ll come to love/hate.

They have even added a day/night system which triggers events based on the time and location you are in, making the game feel random in a very natural way.

This is one of the best Pokemon ROM hacks for those that want a simple, and easy to understand story line. One which you can just relax playing through.

8. Pokemon Brown

pokemon brown

Pokemon Brown is known by many, as it’s one of the oldest Pokemon ROM hacks around. It’s based off of the classic Gameboy game but with some minor changes to the storyline.

The game takes place in the new region of Rijon, it introduced ten new cities, one Johto city and over 20 new routes to explore. With that comes seven new types of Pokemon that were not featured in Pokemon Red/Blue.

Imagine a new region in Pokemon Red, with new characters, new Pokemon, different music tracks, new landscapes and a huge storyline that you’ve never heard of. That’s Pokemon Brown.

It doesn’t get updated as much as other ROM hacks, and although it feels as if it has been left out, that’s only because it’s already a great game that doesn’t need much tweaking.

It has that old, vintage feeling from the 90’s and that’s what attracts many to this ROM hack, it’s different, but feels nostalgic at the same time.

9. Pokemon Prism

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - pokemon prism

Pokemon Prism is one of the most popular ROM hacks out there, not only because its been around for a while but because it is one of the best Pokemon ROM hacks out there.

The storyline is based on a young kid who was playing on their uncle’s mine cart when it suddenly spins out of control and ends up in a brand new region called Naljo. This region is corrupt and you end up finding a lost Larvitar which helps you bring back Naljo to its good old ways.

This region is in fact far bigger than Johto, it features over 250 Pokemon from four different regions and adds Fairy, Gas and Sound types of Pokemon which is awesome. Sound as a type is genius and why Nintendo hasn’t thought of it is beyond us!

Throughout your journey, like any other ROM hack you’ll discover puzzles, new areas, legendary Pokemons and these things called Gold coins which allow you to unlock sme really cool stuff.

There’s only 80 in the whole game, so spend them wisely!

If that wasn’t enough this game adds crafting, new mini games, and side scrolling areas to make it completely different to other competitor ROM hacks!

10. Pokemon Phoenix Rising

phoenix dark rising

Phoenix Rising is a free fan-made episodic Pokémon RPG developed using RPG Maker XP and the Pokémon Essentials engine.

The game is set in a new region known as Hawthorne and boasts changes to the original main-series Pokémon formula to include a more traditional RPG theme as well as many new features.

This is one of the best Pokemon ROM hacks around, period. The time, and effort put into this is beyond incredible and the team behind it should be very proud.

It looks like a completely new game, and you could probably tell us Game Freak developed it themselves, and I’d believe you! The graphics and overall look is based off the Nintendo DS, so it looks far more modern than most on this list.

This ROM hack features a wide number of cool things, for example there are choice determined gameplay moments, character customisation, skill trees and multiple save files.

But the best bit comes with mega evolutions, region evolutions and relic forms too! For example, there’s Mega Arcanine, Ho-Oh Arisen Form, Mega Flygon, Relic Tentacruel and more, all waiting to be captured!

The only downfall with this one is that it’s fairly new, and only episode 1 has been launched, so as soon as you start to get addicted, you then realise there’s not another episode out yet. The team behind it are working on more episodes, but as with any ROM hack, they don’t get paid to do it, so this will launch when and if it gets finished.

11. Pokemon Revolution Online

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon Revolution gameplay MMO showing many users moving around a typical Pokemon path area

Did you ever think that you’d see a Pokemon MMO based on the first four Pokemon regions?

Well, maybe you did… I guess that’s why you’re here, after all.

For me, Pokemon Revolution Online is the ultimate online RPG. It’s got all the elements of the original games that we know and love and adds new features such as meeting other users and joining specific guilds.

There are regular updates and events for players to take part in. Plus, with four regions to explore, there’s plenty to keep gamers occupied.

The PvP battles look much better than they did back in the day too, almost like they’ve had the Pokemon Go treatment while still sticking to their retro roots.

All in all, this is an epic mod and one that allows you to play Pokemon like never before.

And the best bit… it’s 100% free!

12. Pokemon Rejuvenation

Pokemon Reborn brought crime and lawlessness to the world of pocket monster training.

It was such a success that the team couldn’t rest on their laurels for long, and Pokemon Rejuvenation was born soon after.

With a brand new story to play through, Rejuvenation gives fans the chance to experience what it’s like to rebuild a local town after an ‘act of god’ leaves it in ruins.

While you’re trying to fix things and get people back on their feet, the notorious Team Xen are attempting to plunge the world into greater chaos.

Give it a rest, guys!

While this title ultimately wouldn’t exist without Reborn, I have to admit that I prefer it to its predecessor. The game is colourful, the Pokemon (up to Gen 7) are fun to fight with, and it’s a well made game that fans are sure to love.

13. Pokemon Orange

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon Orange cover showing Dragonite alongside gameplay of an impending battle

Pokemon Orange flies into the Number 13 spot on our list of the best Pokemon ROM hacks of all time!

This is an exciting hack of Pokemon Crystal that sees players taking a Pokemon Trainer from Valencia Island around the Orange Archipelago.

It sounds like something that one might visit of the coast of France or Sardinia. I’d totally visit this place if I could, especially if there was a Dragonite waiting for me!

Meet Samson oak and find out just what this GS Ball he’s going on about really is. He’s got a strong Hawaiian vibe about him and looks ready for a drink by the pool, never mind researching Pokemon!

This new adventure is exciting and well thought out. It’s certainly given us lots of fun and hopefully will for you too!

14. Pokemon Reborn

I guess I couldn’t really go any further without talking about Pokemon Reborn in greater detail, especially after I mentioned it so much above!

Yes, Reborn brings a much different feel to the world of Pokemon. Instead of everything being light and happy-go-lucky, there’s a real sinister, dark feel to proceedings.

It’s a little like a crime scene at a stem punk convention, and I bloomin’ love it!

One of the things that you’ll notice about this brand new adventure is the epic music. GlitchxCity has made some belting tunes to go with this game, really emphasising the post-apocalyptic feel of the adventure.

The setting and the clothes the characters are all wearing aren’t the only new changes, however. Pokemon battles are now harder to win than they were before, making players use their brainboxes before pushing that attack button.

Do you think you could train the ultimate team to bring peace back to the region?

15. Pokemon Godra

Best Pokemon ROM Hacks - Pokemon Godra loading screen with modded gameplay

The wider series of Pokemon games are some of the best RPG titles of our generation. Still, this final entry in our list of the best Pokemon ROM hacks takes the element of choice to a-whole-nother level.

Yes, players have always been able to upgrade Pokemon and collect new abilities and items, but compared to some RPG titles with morality engines and multiple endings, they are a little lacking.

That’s where Pokemon Godra comes in, a mod that gives users sweeping story arcs, multiple paths to follow, and lots of different problems to solve and areas to explore.

In other words, it turns Pokemon into a super RPG on steroids!

Other than just collecting Pokemon, players have a chance to truly play as different roles in the game. Enter into the army, become a member of the Elite Four, or try your hand at shepherding Pokemon around as a Safari Zone worker.

And, instead of just choosing from three starter Pokemon, there’s a whopping 128 to chose from!

Finally; so much choice!

So there’s a look at the best Pokemon ROM hacks in our opinion. I just want to take this moment to say thank you to all that work hard on these awesome pieces of digital art. It really opens up Pokemon to new and old fans.

If you’re reading this and have worked on one of these feature ROM hacks, then thank you!

Dont forget to let us know your favourite Pokemon ROM hack over on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
