Hack Name:
Pokemon TRE: Team Rocket Edition

Hack of:
Pokemon Red

Giovanni is having a competition to see who will be his successor in leading Team Rocket. The competition is between you and your sister, and you must beat all of the gyms and the elite four.

New Maps
Text changed
New Sprites/Tiles

Really I changed ALOT in this hack, much of which has never been done before in a first generation game, I just don't want to ruin it.

Some pokemon have in party sprites
When viewing trainer card, gym leaders pictures have glitches sprites ontop
Random sprites change on some routes
Some trainers have different names
When viewing pokemon stats, its types do not show

Just because some say not sure doesn't mean I won't fix it. I will try to figure out how, and if that fails I will create a workaround (like, if necessary, removing them from the game)


You can watch the intro at YouTube here:

The Final version with bug fixes release: December 25, 2008
It can be played online here: (Firefox only)

Didn't expect a red remake :) Good luck on this hack mate.
'Red remake?' Don't you meanm a red hack? But anyway, good job man, and I will be the first to give you beta advise. Wait! Something worth doing is worth doing well.
Ben: Oh, you guys. Stop calling them. You can call me all you want.

Laura: Okay...

Eric: Oh, oh, okay.

Ben: Just don't make it between the times of midnight and 6:00 AM because I am sleeping.

[Andrew laughs]

Ben: And if my speakers go off...

Andrew: [Laughs] No you're not.

Ben: Yeah, well, sometimes I am. Occasionally.

Eric: And people of the world, don't call him on Skype, Sundays between like 3:00 and 8:00 PM because that's when he edits the show.

Andrew: When he does, yeah.

Ben: If you call think a dementor is bad? You think Lord Voldemort is bad? [In deep voice] You haven't felt the wrath of Ben Schoen.

Sweet! Can't wait to try this out! I remember back in the day (when I was new to hacks) I seen these two hacks (well they were a pair) of gold, it was Jesse Version, and James version. Thought this was it being continued at first, but its still cool to see this one!

plese do me two favors
realse a beta before october
and remap the pokemon
Thanks guys. I don't think I'll be releasing a beta since I probably only have a week worth of work (try saying that ten times fast) left. The thing is, there are two parts where I actually don't know how to do it, so that might take longer. I'll release more screenshots soon, but if someone actually looked harder they might find a fifth screenshot I hid somewhere.

And snowy, what do you mean by remapping the pokemon? You mean changing their pictures, such as in Pokemon Brown? That might or might not have been done. ;)

Wow,this looks pretty cool! Im usually not attracted to hacks that don't have Fire Red Leaf Green graphics and I usually always HATE Team Rocket Hacks but something is compelling me from clicking the back button...I will definatly come back to see how this is going. Good luck!

A Red hack? Now that's something I haven't played in some time... So, I am open to play it.

I just wanted to know if it is possible to see a few new events, or is it mostly a graphical hack? (maps, tiles and sprites)

Good luck, hope you manage to pull out the stuff you are missing (hint: CBMan?), and give us a release whenever it's ready.

Well you won't see any new events like in Prism, because I have no idea how the scripting works. Sorry. But hopefully you will enjoy some other features.

I'll add more screenshots and update the first thread tomorrow.
No problem, my hack will take time. So yeah. Good luck with yours.

this is a good hack, but i have some questions:
1 when you fight giovanni throughout the regular red, blue, and yellow games, is it going to be giovonni or someone else, and is the eight badge going to be coming from him or not?

Looks nice.
But the Ekans and the Meowth in the intro look a bit... uhm... not right. Why don´t you use the Sprites/Backsprites of the game?
And another question: Is the "Hero" James? Because the sprite in the intro is deffenetly NOT James. You could use the G/S/C sprites of them, or am I wrong?

But all the other things look great.

Ps.: You´ve forgott the ` over Pokémon^^

Wanna adopt one too? Just come to my adoption-thread!!! (It got closed, so if you want one PM me)

Instead of Giovanni and Team Rocket, you will fight the police force and its chief.

Also, I can't use their front sprites and back sprites because the intro is editable in a tile editor, while the sprites are not. I know I can import pictures, but I actually like the intro because I know I made it myself (same reason for the James sprite instead of ash).
Plus, it would be too hard to import because each row has a different number of blocks, and sometimes there is a black block in the middle of some rows, as you can see in the second ekans sprite. And of course, I would still have to make my own sprite because even if I get the default ones, I would still need to add the attack sprites. It's kind of complicated to explain, but basically I'm going to leave them the way they are.

And the title screen logo (where it says Pokemon Rocket) is going to change.
