    Introduction/Story

    Hey guys, I'm PokemonAce123 and here's my hack, Pokemon Flare.

    This hack is a classic journey through Kanto...backwards....
    That's right, BACKWARDS.

    Anyways, your goal is to conquer the ARMS Challenge, while defeating the infamous Team Rocket on your way. Are you up to the challenge?

    Now...on to some features...

    -Physical/Special Split
    -Decapitalization
    -Fairy-types
    -Gen 4-6 Moves
    -TM's can be used more than once!
    -Awesome HG/SS Music!
    -Legendaries!
    -All 3 Kanto starters available!
    -Gen 6 Exp System!
    -More to come!


    Bugs
    -None that I know of!

    And now....the screenies!

    Screenshots


    At least you can run, how bad could it be?


    Well isn't that exciting.


    Cut trees...making you take the long way around since forever.


    Prepare yourself.


    Hooray, dangerous situations!


    Surge...you had one job...


    What awaits at the top of the waterfall?


    Legen...waitforit....dary

    Team/Credits
    -Just me for the team.
    -I'd like to thank all those who left their tools out for others to use and to anyone who helped me with any aspect of this hack.

    FAQ
    Q: Can I go back to the three islands once I leave?
    A: Not until much later.
    Q: Why is it called the ARMS Challenge?
    A: Only one way to find out...play the hack!
    Q: How do I patch a UPS file?
    A: Either use tsukuyomi or NUPS to patch it.

    Not to burst your bubble, but there's already a hack out there that's near identical to yours in case you're not aware.

        I've played that hack before, it inspired me to make my own backwards version, not to mention that our hacks have differences

          Thanks! Cut can be found where it's usually found, so it'll be available much later. Strength is still in Fuschia, but you don't need it for Seafoam. Rock smash is your prize for beating the goons on three island. Hope that helps!

              You won't need strength until victory road, and you can't go back to the islands until much later. I don't know what happened with safari zone but I'll release a fix with it opened.

                So is this just a backward fire red back and so does that mean it has the same storyline no new elements to it. Please answer and thank you in advance.

                  I mean, it's not just a backward fire red hack...it's one full of adventure and trolling and all that good stuff. There are a few new elements to it, like updated maps and harder gyms, plus visiting three islands early on, getting your national dex before the postgame and not to forget the awesome music and the thrilling gameplay. However, it will closely follow the storyline of fire red, just backwards, since that's what it was designed for.

                  Glad I could be of service

                    Just wondering how trade evolutions will work in this hack? Also I experienced a bug where if you faint before reaching cinnabar island, you will teleport next to Blaine in his gym and your Pokemon will be healed. If you beat him you can't leave his gym.

                      Trade evolutions have been removed. And in regards to the bug I'll see what I can do to fix it, that's pretty odd.

                      Distribution of ROMs is against the forum rules, please attach or post a link to an IPS patch file instead.

                                Which patcher are you using? Make sure it's a ups patcher, like Tsukuyomi or NUPS

                                    I too am unable to patch it correctly. Using the ignore option in NUPS with the FR Squirrels rom seems to work okay, though.

                                      I updated the ups file, hopefully there won't be anymore problems, let me know if there are any though!

                                        Hate to bother you again, but this time there's definitely something wrong as the ups file is only 24 bytes large.

                                          Idk what the problem was, but I changed it one more time and it seems to be working now...hopefully it actually does
