Pokemon Pure Silver

Found this hack by accident around 2011/2012 and fell in love. I have played MANY great hacks so for this one to be my overall favorite is high praise. It solved ALL but one or two of my problems with the GSC games. My only complaints are there's no way to get a Surfing Pikachu (a complaint I have about most hacks, but keep to myself), and the fact he used Silver as the Rom base instead of doing all this work to Pokemon Crystal. Attach all the changes to Crystal with a special event to get a Surfing Pichu as an egg and all my problems are solved. Actually... Would anyone be willing to make a variant of this for Crystal and add in an event for a Surfing Pichu egg?

The original web page with the hack is no longer up, but it was archived and the ips link still works.

Favorite was probably Shiny Gold. It was the only hack I played because I wanted to play a hack. My other hack play throughs were somewhat out of obligation and I didn't really have the player mentality I did back when I played these games for fun.

Pokemon Snakewood. Great storyline, humour, difficulty level, I even like the fakemons there(which can't be said about any other hack).

I'm tied between Pokemon Ruby Destiny - Life of Guardians and Pokemon Snakewood. Both are my favorites.

I'm glad so many people likes Pokemon Snakewood. Unfortunately, I can't consider myself among you. I didnt feel the story properly wrapped up and it kind of just dragged on. It was a fun experience, but there was no real ending imo so yeah.

My favorite rom hack is probably Liquid Crystal. I sound like a hypocrite because at the time that I played this game, it also did not have a proper ending, but it was added a great difficulty curve to a wonderful game. Basically a gen 4 game with gen 3 graphics, it was a great experience.

I would happily oblige, but I would need the original maker's permission.

Well, he listed an email to contact him at in the link but I have no idea if it still works. [email protected]
Google searching the email tells me he's a teacher at MIT

I'll try tonight. Also, yet to finish the game myself, not sure how to activate the Zapdos, Mew, Celebi and 3rd Johto starter events. Got Moltres (both of them>) and Mewtwo, plus Raikou from the roamers.

Mew is found in Olivine City walking around disguised as one of the NPC's walking around. Just talk to him, and he'll teleport to a small landmass to the right of the Olivine lighthouse. Surf over there, talk to him again and you'll battle him. Make SURE to save beforehand and catch him before he uses transform. IIRC, if you catch him after he uses transform, it just becomes a ditto. I like to cheat and use save states to avoid that.

As to the Johto starters. One is found in the Dark Cave by the entrance by Violet City. The other can be bought as an egg by an NPC walking around Goldenrod City.

Hero! Done and caught, thanks. I know what I need for Articuno, just Zapdos and Celebi now.

For me it's definitely Pokemon Glazed, the game play was so good it felt like a legitimate Pokemon game, although I think they could have done more with the pikatchu and the dimension hopping story, but in general it was amazing and I highly recommend it.

Pokemon Light Platinum for me.

Even though I like Pokemon CrystalDust and Pokemon PlatinumRed, I can not let down my fave ROM hack.

Probably Liquid Crystal.

It's hard, beautiful, and nostalgic.

I love alot of hacks.
The top contenders for my favourite though, are Glazed, Vega, Snakewood, and Super Rising Thunder (although it never made it past the Alpha stage, what I did play was incredible, and I loved it. Shame it won't be going any further )

I LOVE the Fakemon in Vega, and they are all brilliantly designed. If I HAD to pick a number one favourite, it would be Vega.
