Hack Name:
Pokemon TRE: Team Rocket Edition

Hack of:
Pokemon Red

Giovanni is having a competition to see who will be his successor in leading Team Rocket. The competition is between you and your sister, and you must beat all of the gyms and the elite four.

New Maps
Text changed
New Sprites/Tiles

Really I changed ALOT in this hack, much of which has never been done before in a first generation game, I just don't want to ruin it.

Some pokemon have in party sprites
When viewing trainer card, gym leaders pictures have glitches sprites ontop
Random sprites change on some routes
Some trainers have different names
When viewing pokemon stats, its types do not show

Just because some say not sure doesn't mean I won't fix it. I will try to figure out how, and if that fails I will create a workaround (like, if necessary, removing them from the game)


You can watch the intro at YouTube here:

The Final version with bug fixes release: December 25, 2008
It can be played online here: (Firefox only)

Here is the patch:

'Red remake?' Don't you meanm a red hack? But anyway, good job man, and I will be the first to give you beta advise. Wait! Something worth doing is worth doing well.

Yeah, I meant hack. Sorry, can't wait for future updates. Good luck with this one!

I like this hack. It is good to see someone who still hacks older pokemon games.

Sweet! Can't wait to try this out! I remember back in the day (when I was new to hacks) I seen these two hacks (well they were a pair) of gold, it was Jesse Version, and James version. Thought this was it being continued at first, but its still cool to see this one!

realse a beta before october
and remap the pokemon

Thanks guys. I don't think I'll be releasing a beta since I probably only have a week worth of work (try saying that ten times fast) left. The thing is, there are two parts where I actually don't know how to do it, so that might take longer. I'll release more screenshots soon, but if someone actually looked harder they might find a fifth screenshot I hid somewhere.

And snowy, what do you mean by remapping the pokemon? You mean changing their pictures, such as in Pokemon Brown? That might or might not have been done. ;)

Wow,this looks pretty cool! Im usually not attracted to hacks that don't have Fire Red Leaf Green graphics and I usually always HATE Team Rocket Hacks but something is compelling me from clicking the back button...I will definatly come back to see how this is going. Good luck!

zel 2.0 August 17th, 2007 10:49 PM

A Red hack? Now that's something I haven't played in some time... So, I am open to play it.

I just wanted to know if it is possible to see a few new events, or is it mostly a graphical hack? (maps, tiles and sprites)

Good luck, hope you manage to pull out the stuff you are missing (hint: CBMan?), and give us a release whenever it's ready.

Gold Tom August 17th, 2007 11:12 PM

Wow! This is looking quite cool. All I can say is that I wish more people would hack Red like this.

PokeGlitch August 18th, 2007 8:19 AM

Well you won't see any new events like in Prism, because I have no idea how the scripting works. Sorry. But hopefully you will enjoy some other features.

I'll add more screenshots and update the first thread tomorrow.

No problem, my hack will take time. So yeah. Good luck with yours.

Nice to see a red hack around. I have actually done the same with a old hack of mine (the re pointing of the pictures) So for example ash's back image is pointing at the old man.

Hope all goes well in finishing it.

PokeGlitch August 18th, 2007 4:12 PM

I just updated the first post. You can watch my intro to the hack here:

Momoko August 18th, 2007 4:37 PM

Wow,that looks really good! I'm glad you posted that,so we can so how good you are hacking! Good luck!

Also, the title screen logo is subject to change.

BlazikenMaster2000 August 18th, 2007 9:12 PM

this is a good hack, but i have some questions:
1 when you fight giovanni throughout the regular red, blue, and yellow games, is it going to be giovonni or someone else, and is the eight badge going to be coming from him or not?

BlackDragonite August 19th, 2007 1:18 AM

Looks nice.
But the Ekans and the Meowth in the intro look a bit... uhm... not right. Why don´t you use the Sprites/Backsprites of the game?
And another question: Is the "Hero" James? Because the sprite in the intro is deffenetly NOT James. You could use the G/S/C sprites of them, or am I wrong?

But all the other things look great.

Ps.: You´ve forgott the ` over Pokémon^^

PokeGlitch August 19th, 2007 8:06 AM

Instead of Giovanni and Team Rocket, you will fight the police force and its chief.

Also, I can't use their front sprites and back sprites because the intro is editable in a tile editor, while the sprites are not. I know I can import pictures, but I actually like the intro because I know I made it myself (same reason for the James sprite instead of ash).
Plus, it would be too hard to import because each row has a different number of blocks, and sometimes there is a black block in the middle of some rows, as you can see in the second ekans sprite. And of course, I would still have to make my own sprite because even if I get the default ones, I would still need to add the attack sprites. It's kind of complicated to explain, but basically I'm going to leave them the way they are.

And the title screen logo (where it says Pokemon Rocket) is going to change.

BlueSonic August 19th, 2007 12:05 PM

Yeah, red hacks are rare, only one red hack on PC here now which is this, so cool.

YellowPen August 20th, 2007 2:43 AM

yeh this hack looks really good. the intro is great i cant wait for the full game.

jj5222 August 21st, 2007 2:54 AM

looks good i like the classic style

brotlov August 30th, 2007 1:05 PM

Hey, nice red hack Pokeglitch, i have a couple of questions though:
What program do you use to Map with?
And How did you change the Map?
But this is looking good, good luck

matt3 August 30th, 2007 2:44 PM

So you play as jessie or james and the other one if your rival..
THATS AWSOME i cant wait till its finish
