Pokemon Vega is probably the highest regarded of all foreign-language Pokemon hacks. Created by a group of Japanese hackers, it contains a new region, all sorts of new Pokemon and moves, and a significant challenge.

We have fully translated Pokemon Vega, and it is now available as a patch for English Fire Red, here:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/o4...hckp6/Vega.zip

(THE PATCH ONLY WORKS WITH V1.0 FIRE RED ROMS. USE VISUALBOY ADVANCE.)

Also included is a plot summary of the prequels, Pokemon Altair and Sirius, so you can jump right in without having to play one of those lower-quality hacks. If you absolutely must, they're here:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/np...air_Sirius.zip

Features:
  • A fully new region, the Tohoak region!
  • 181 new Pokemon, plus 56 Pokemon from newer generations!
  • 70 new moves, plus 87 moves from newer generations!
  • Impressive custom music! (Full OST download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/hv...n_Vega_OST.zip)
  • Rematches with almost all important trainers!
  • An extensive postgame, including a battle facility!
  • And much more!

So glad to finally see Vega get posted on PC! It's definitely in my top five hacks.

This translation is also very high-quality! Being able to understand what's happening makes it far less cryptic which is definitely a plus.

My only qualm with the hack now is the mapping. Like... even just Porcelia Town is pretty ugly, imo.

Oh my god yessss I need to play this. Vega was the one hack I've been waiting for a translation for ages and then some.

Also, out of curiosity, you have a OST rip, but do you plan to do a gamerip version in GSF/miniGSF format as well? I'd rather have the gamerip versions so I have the infinitely-looping audio.

I have never complained about difficulty before in my life for a hack but psyduck this games difficulty the first gym is a cheating whore no first gym leader should have berries on every pokemon aswell as use a potion on each I'm sorry thats not difficulty thats forcing the player to grind to an unnecessarily high lvl to beat a gym you should be able to win at lvl 14-15 without a huge difficulty.

this ROM has some of the nicest fakemon design i ever seen, unlike the 10 year old doddles I see in other hacks. this is coming from someone who usually dislike fakemon hacks.

yeah the difficulty is tough, simply because the way its designed you simply cannot grind levels to prepare for boss fights, unless you want to spend an inordinate time to do so. (super low level wild mons and normal trainers, high level gym leaders/elite trainers with competitive movesets).

Oh, this finally got here. I was wondering how long it would take to transfer this from the Nuzlocke Forums. I might do a run of it over there.

Nice to see a foreign language hack like this fully translated in English! Could you also translate Spanish hacks, like Pokemon Mystical?


Come play The Great Pokemon Battle 4!

This is truly one of the best hacks I've ever played. As this hack has been posted on RHM several months ago, some of us were already able to play through it then, what I did, until Apple decided to revoke GBA4iOS again, but thanks to Dropbox, I am still able to continue the post game story and catch more Pokémon.
Also, I can only agree with what Spherical Ice said earlier: I, too, am glad to finally see this hack on PC.
I'm sorry, but I don't have a signature for you today. Sorry, you're out.

This hack could be very interesting to me. I do like the fakemon designs, they are quite solid. The battles are quite hard since they can use potion or berries as their last standing.

Good Job on translating this hack, I would like to dig in to discover more

Select the windows along the backwall, and they change the teleporting pattern. If I recall correctly, it is the second-from the left window.
