    Greetings everyone, this is my first post here. I recently discovered Pokémon Throwback, an enhancement hack of FireRed that restores the original Gameboy soundtrack via a key item, and a few light changes that modernize the gameplay while staying true to the core game. I attempted to hyperlink it but I don't have enough posts to include links just yet.

    I was wondering if any other enhancement hacks similar to this one exist for other games? I am very much a fan of replaying older Pokémon games, but some of the dated mechanics make it a little difficult sometimes. Being locked out of event-exclusive areas without the use of cheats is also slightly frustrating.

    The thing I would really like more than anything is the GB Sound item at the start of HeartGold / SoulSilver. I realize I can probably just get this with cheats, but I am hopeful a hack exists that includes both that and other enhancements haha

    Thanks in advance to anyone that responds!

      The Sideshow Showcase section is where the gold's at.
      Some good options to look at would be Pokémon Red++, Pokémon Polished Crystal, Pokémon Sigma Emerald, Pokémon HGSS Golden Edition and/or Pokémon MindCrystal.

      Seconding what Lunos said.
      Those kinds of hacks are a dime a dozen in the Sideshow Showcase. Not really sure on the throwback aspects that you're looking for, though.
