Must be a hack of Leafgreen, FireRed, Sapphire, Emerald, and Ruby. The hardest rom I played was either Pokemon FireRed Omega(because of the strong Pokemon, I had to work extra hard on my team) or Pokemon Ruby Destiny: Reign of Legends(because of the LV 99. Shadow Lugia. o.o Really creepy). Share me your opinions. Must be a hack that you played and that you must think on what is the hardest rom you played.

in RD-RoL, you could have just ran away from the level 99 dark lugia 0.o

and the hardest hack which I am STILL trying to beat is RD - Life of Guardians. The final battle when you faced 3 separate pokemon in the 80's were easy, cuz I used perish song. HOWEVER, I am getting ripped from the master 17

I was stuck on that hack, I was trying to find the 6th gym leader(Rayner, for Electric), I searched through Youtube guides on it, they found him at the power plant, I went there so many times, and that I never found it. I quit playing the rom, but the rom was EXTREME.

None. X3 I use cheat codes. Not because I want to cheat, I just want to play through the whole game because I like storyline.

I use Rare Candy codes too to make them stronger, not too much, just an average amount.

Out of Pokemon hacks, I suppose I have to say Reign of Legends, as it is the only one I remember playing that was done and far enough to get hard without getting bored.

I'm disappointed that you limited it to Pokemon, as Mario hacks I could have listed for ages!

I haven't played too many hacks, but I've always found snakewood rather difficult. The storyline is straightforward, but I always find that my pokemon suck and become 10 levels below what they should be.

Probably light platinum is the hardest rom hack that I have played. It was one of my first rom hack and I guess it was WAY to advance for me.

Either Snakewood or RD: LoG. In Snakewood some of the bosses were just insanely hard with my team, and RD: LoG has a lot of hard battles near the end of the game.

RoL was actually pretty hard, considering the gym leaders and legendaries were pretty tough... and not to mention annoying...

Miksy91's Pokemon Crystal: Ultimate End. it starts to get miserable about the time when your opponents go ABOVE level 100.

The hardest hack I've played is the one I'm working on :D, but I'm following some conventions that haven't been used yet. I also haven't played too many hacks. I remember Brown being tough at the beginning though.

This. When I'm at a really hard part of the game and want to find out what happens next, I Rare Candy my Pokémon up a few levels, just until they're about three levels higher than the Pokémon other Trainers are using.

Anyway, hardest one I played was Crystal Enchanced.
I was nuzlocking it and my Starter fainted in my first wild battle.

I've played most games and Fire red omega was hard for me. Since, i rarely use any cheats and master balls to keep the game adventurous, i found it hard.

RD was real fun to play but, never found it that hard. Whenever a creepy high level pokemon had to be battled, i used odish. It had sleep powder, poison sting, leech seed and stunt spore.

Regarding light platinum and flora sky, they were fun and hard at times. I was struck not knowing how to blast ice rocks in the lauren region. :D
