They Dark Rising, it's a back of Fire Red, great story line. Has Dratini, Gible, and Bagon as starters. (Dratini is worth it as tDragonite has the highest special attack of those three fully evolved. Very challenging. You battle Ash who only uses a Pikachu that is insanely strong at lv 99, and a Ho-Oh at lv 100. The Elite Four Champion uses a Mewtwo, Regigigas, Dialga, Cresselia, and a Palkia all at lv 99, and a Shadow Lugia at lv 100. I highly recommend it. Very fun and challenging. I had to beat it with my team as Dragonite, Victini, Shaymin, Groudon, Reshiram, and Volcarona, all at lv 100.

Dark Rising :3 (I am still stuck at pokemon league trying to find the right team to beat it D: )
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.

Naranja The orange island hack..It was a great game Cant say the same for translation though but it was hard you get such high leveled pokemon from the first to battle with and the maps are confusing since you have to surf everywhere

the spearow part was a little confusing since you dont expect to know how to swim but I figured it out in 5 minutes

I'll use master balls and i try to get a bunch of Full Restores and Max Revives early in the game. Also a bunch of Max repels if im trying to get somewhere and dont wanna get attacked a ton. And maybe a quick level up cheat to level up faster than using rare candies.

OMG, Life of Guardians! Most hard and puzzled game I played!
the music in the game and the way how Jagold thought of the
story was absolutely perfect and also the change of events.
(Good & Bad Mode) Tried them both! Which means I played
Life of Guardians many times, now.

RD LoG was the toughest, the double battle at the end jesus christ that was difficult. Dark Rising was tough as well, but Umbreon and Victini basically ruined everything together for that game (given Zen Headbutt flinched every time, and Umbreon's ability screwed over Dark Lugia).

Snakewood level jumps made it crazily difficult.

Light Platinum was easy as hell, same for flora sky. Fire red omega was a little more challenging, but not on the level of LoG/Snakewood/DarkRising.

The first ever (and the only) hacked game I ever played was Pokemon Quartz, a hack of Pokemon Sapphire/Ruby. It was pretty hard, and the memories are now just blurs because I was so young when I played it.

Dark Rising was very difficult
I remember fainting at the beginning a lot because they raise the levels so quickly

I thought Light Platinum was quite hard, but then again I did have a full party by the 2 Gym - LOTS OF GRINDING!

I played through Dark Rising - it was hard. But I restarted the game, and grind a lot at the beginning to get a head start.

Fire Red Omega wasn't that hard, compared to others

Glazed is annoying, but not hard, because of the level gaps.

Pokemon Dark Rising was extremely hard to beat because of the maxed EV legendaries that the E4 had. >.<

I didn't play a lot of rom hacks, but the hardest I played was PureWhite. I loved all the changes they did!! (they kept the same map, ut they changes the pokemon you can catch and the pokemon the gym leader has. They made the game a lot more difficult!!)
