Try the Ruby Destiny Series, Light Platinum and Flora Sky.

KageJason June 28th, 2012 10:07 PM

I'm Unaware on which game require to run some of them, I had to take wild guess to run some of them, but for the best in hacks, go for POKEMON MANLY PINK, it's a firered hack that come as a .GBA file and not an .IPS file, basiclly it's pokemon fire red with all 1st gen pokemon replaced with 5th gen pokemon

You should try :

- Pokemon Light Platinum
- Pokemon Flora Sky
- Pokemon Snakewood
- Pokemon Liquid Crystal
- Pokemon Ruby Destiny Series
- Pokemon AshGray

Pokemon Shiny Gold was really good. The only downside is that it's not completely finished. And I definitely agree with Ash Gray being good.

My favorite? Well I guess it would have to be the Pokémon Ruby Destiny series with it's amazing storylines in the trilogy, only RR and LoG had some music from other games in it. But it's understandable that RoL had the default Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald music, 'cause it was a very early ROM hack that was around before any of us PC members had discovered about music hacking and all that. But once we did, that's when ROM hacks in the generation 3 part became more interesting.

But apart from the Ruby Destiny series, which I'd recommend, you really should try these ROM hacks:

→ Pokémon Light Platinum
It has a great storyline, has a nice tileset freshly prepared, only one downside to it though... it has the default Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald music. But I'd still recommend it.

→ Pokémon Flora Sky
It too... has a great overall storyline to it, as well as freshly prepared tilesets and default Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald music, but I recommend it too... since it was inspired after Shaymin's Sky Forme from Pokémon Platinum.

→ Pokémon Liquid Crystal
It is a remake of Pokémon... well you guessed it, Pokémon Crystal Version, but with some twists to it and some new features! It has remixed music from Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal, and it has new tiles added into the ROM hack and it's a ROM hack of Pokémon FireRed Version.

→ Pokémon Snakewood
Probably one of the newer ROM hacks here on PC, it has a magnificent storyline to what happens in the game, it takes place in the future Hoenn region, it is a ROM hack of Pokémon Ruby Version. Something I would also recommend you should try.

→ Pokémon DarkDiamond
This is pretty much the only ROM hack of the Nintendo DS ROMs that has (or is going to have) map edits, this is a hack of Pokémon Diamond. You would be amazed by the changes this ROM hack really has, I would really recommend it. It's one of the first of the 4th generation ROM hacks that have edited map layouts in it.

Pinta77 July 19th, 2012 7:30 PM

Pokemon Jupiter is pretty cool. An naranja version. And i only played ruby destiny rescue rangers, but i really liked that one.

I just started playing Ash Grey, and so far it is pretty awesome. The Ho-oh at the beggening is so cool :)

Blue July 20th, 2012 8:28 AM

I enjoyed Pokémon Liquid Crystal by LAZ, so much to do, a GBA remake of Crystal.. what's not to love?

Pinta77 July 20th, 2012 7:55 PM

Crystal version was is my 2nd favorite pokemon game ever :) i got a crystal version remake, but it was in spanish.

SonicBlazePlatinum July 21st, 2012 5:50 AM

Pokemon Azure Horizons, Pokemon Quartz and Marble, Pokemon Snakewood, Pokemon WARPED, Pokemon Light Platinum, Pokemon Flora Sky, Pokemon Crystal Dust, and Pokemon Shattered Dreams.

Pokemon Quartz was the first ROM Hack I played since November 2006, appropriately it's a Ruby ROM Hack and Pokemon Ruby was my first Pokemon game.

zenlor July 31st, 2012 4:33 AM

For me, the best GBA hack I ever played was Pokémon Liquid Crystal of LaZ simply because I like Johto and Kanto Pokémon and LC has a nice composition (which I don't know how to describe). I also like Kanto and Orange Islands being complete in LC. I already finished Beta 2.1 of LC (in fact, I made a walkthrough of it before in my previous YouTube account) and I'm currently playing Beta 3.2 of it. :)

By the way, zel did also a good job on Pokémon Shiny Gold. He must have completed Kanto for it to be more exciting. ;)

I completely agree with these, in fact, playing Snakewood right now.

Hack of the Year 2012 !
Best Mapping - Light Platinum
Best Scripting - Dark Rising
Most Graphical Appeal - Flora Sky
Best Story Line - Snakewood
Best Gameplay - Dark Rising
Most Engaging Hack - SkyLine

But for me Flora Sky is the best..
except for those stupid doors without opening animations..

-my opinion.

pokemon snakewood

pokemon a grand day out

and fire red backwards

kensarcher January 4th, 2013 5:15 PM

1. Light Platinum (Best Story and Mapping)
2. Ruby Destiny LoG (Originality)
3. Dark Rising (Best Difficulties)
4. Victory Fire (exclude the map Location bug >.<)
5. Dark Cry TLoG (Best Graphics and Battle Scene)


ShinyGardevoir January 10th, 2013 1:00 AM

Pokemon Ruby Destiny: Life of Guardians (It was well put together, it was very challenging and I love how the creator put cries of other region Pokemon in there)
