You have until the first of September to vote for your Hack of the Month. The winner hack's thread will be stickied for a month, until the next month's winner is announced. The winner hack will also be added to PokéCommunity's official ROM Hacking Hall of Fame. Only hacks in either the Progressing Hacks forum or the Hacks Showcase forum are eligible for nomination.

Eligible Hacks


  • You may vote once per month, per hack.
  • Asking or bribing others to vote for your hack is not allowed.
  • Creating new accounts to vote multiple times is not allowed and will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Voting is done via the poll not by posting in this thread, votes in the form of posts will not be counted.
  • Don't complain that your hack was not chosen this month.
Wait, I saw bare kicks, saw bare clothes
Said psyduck that, I can't wear those
I don't like them, they're not my ting
They went silent, they're all weirdos

I would have voted for palladium, but the tiles are waaaaay overused, I don't know anything about shattered dreams, and Dark Violet has great scripts, great graphics, and it's just great altogether, so I vote for DarkViolet.

I am voting for Dark Violet by Chaos Rush. It is because it is a remake of Pokemon Red and Blue and is a ROM Hack of Emerald with some Fire Red style. The progress looks very good, I can't wait for the beta.
Also known as SentryBronyPlatinum or Shadowbolt Pegasus.

Well as much as I like R/B/G/Y, remakes get boring over time and are very overused.

Shattered dreams seems very interesting, but in the end I'm going to have to go with Palladium. While I seriously don't care what tiles anyone uses, Palladium really seems creative so it gets my vote here.

Not to mention a beta that has 8-10 hour gameplay. This game is begging to be played.
Soon to be Hacking legend...

Wanna play my hack? Check it out here!

My sig was "too big brah", so I shortened it.

DarkViolet. Chaos Rush is really determined, considering the amount of time he's had to restart. Granted, that doesn't mean the other two aren't. But I also prefer the graphics used in DarkViolet, and the general point of the hack.

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

Dark Violet especially I love the idea, and the nice tiles, so I'll vote for it.

I guess Shattered Dreams gets my vote. Quilava's Master did a great job on doing this hack =)

I vote Darkviolet. (Weird right lol) It looks like ALOT of work went into it. I look at it and forget it's based on Emerald. I have my eye on that one.
