Nope. As soon as you by a game, you get the rights to play the game, you just bought. You can even throw it against a wall or whatever. You even have the right to get a backup of it by extracting the Rom to your PC (you therefor have the right to own the Rom). This also means you don't have to right to give your Rom away (distribute it).
But owning a physical copy isn't the same as owning the game (and its source code). Rom Hacking basically is changing the code of a game to create a new game and because it's not your code, it's illegal.
It's the same with anime fansubbing, that's illegal too.
Pokemon related topic: favourite Pokemon would be: Scythor, Scizor, Venomoth, Guardevoir, Nidoking, and some others ^^
Nonono that's not how I meant it. What I was saying is that Johto is CONSTRUCTED to its very FABRIC to be INHERENTLY EVIL to any GRASS-TYPES. Think about it. How many of the gyms have a type advantage over Grass? 3. How many gyms RESIST Grass? 4. And let's not forget Koga's Poison E4 layout and Lance's... honestly it's more Flying than Dragon but you get the point.
88, I didn't go off topic, as the rules state that posts must be about pokemon or the game. I said to stay on topic because I didn't like talking about roms, and we were drifting away from pokemon altogether, talking about legalities of roms. Anyway, I think that in G/S/C/HG/SS there should be an option to make your pokemon inaccessible and begin kanto like a new game, then get both region's teams together for red! Your thoughts?
I don't want to have a signature any more. No-one will see it. It's useless. And I'm bad at making them and they get disabled.
