    Pokemon Vega is probably the highest regarded of all foreign-language Pokemon hacks. Created by a group of Japanese hackers, it contains a new region, all sorts of new Pokemon and moves, and a significant challenge.

    We have fully translated Pokemon Vega, and it is now available as a patch for English Fire Red (v1.0), here:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/f14dtg5i7s9pdo7/Vega.zip

    Also included is a plot summary of the prequels, Pokemon Altair and Sirius, so you can jump right in without having to play one of those lower-quality hacks. If you absolutely must, they're here:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/npg7a43uxro5xcu/Altair_Sirius.zip

    Features:
    • A fully new region, the Tohoak region!
    • 181 new Pokemon, plus 56 Pokemon from newer generations!
    • 70 new moves, plus 87 moves from newer generations!
    • Impressive custom music! (Full OST download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/hv599nrk9gtof9z/Pok%C3%A9mon_Vega_OST.zip)
    • Rematches with almost all important trainers!
    • An extensive postgame, including a battle facility!
    • And much more!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    - How do I get through the first gym?
    Spoiler:
    There's a hidden switch in one of the windows on the back that changes the destination of the flower warps.

    - Where is the Flash HM?
    Spoiler:
    Talk to the man on the western edge of Route 502.

    - How do I get past the Dugtrio in Russette City?
    Spoiler:
    Beat the Russette Gym, then give the Letter (found on the back of the Mewtwo statue deep in the Spirit Mansion) to the scientist on the second floor of the museum. Then talk to the Pokemon Ranger on Route 505.

    - Where is the Strength HM?
    Spoiler:
    Talk to a hiker in the northwest part of Porcelia Forest.

    - Where is the Cut HM?
    Spoiler:
    Talk to the man hiding in the top floor of the Tower of Darkness.

    - How do I get past the scientists in Ravenplume City?
    Spoiler:
    Beat Team D.H. at the Chateau of Time, then finish the mission at Mt. Snowfall. Talk to the Director at Orpimence City's Pokemon Broadcasting Station (be sure to talk to the scientists first), then give the Meteorite you received to one of the scientists back in Ravenplume City.

    - Where is the Waterfall HM?
    Spoiler:
    After clearing out the D.H. Hideout, talk to the grunt in the upper left of the first floor.

    - I beat the Pokemon League. Now what?
    Spoiler:
    This part of the game is more open-ended. You'll need to:
    • Rematch all the Gym Leaders (in new areas of old dungeons that are now open)
    • Defeat the three trainers in the new areas of Fire, Ice, and Lightning Islands
    • Obtain a Pokemon at the end of an event in the Chateau of Time
    • Obtain a Pokemon from the Champion in a new area of Victory Road
    • Re-enter the Ranger Base at least once to see a short scene

    Then, you'll be able to enter a new place from a newly opened part of the D.H. Building.

    - How do I get through the Sphere Ruins?
    Spoiler:
    (GUIDE COMING EVENTUALLY)

    If you're using a guide written for the Japanese version, a certain puzzle won't work. Try entering the Braille for "ON" (you'll know what this means when you get there.)

    - I got through the Sphere Ruins. Now what?
    Spoiler:
    Complete the entire National Pokedex, then talk to Professor Holly to get one last mission.

    - Where can I find a certain Pokemon?
    Spoiler:
    Check the spreadsheet here.

    So glad to finally see Vega get posted on PC! It's definitely in my top five hacks.

    This translation is also very high-quality! Being able to understand what's happening makes it far less cryptic which is definitely a plus.

    My only qualm with the hack now is the mapping. Like... even just Porcelia Town is pretty ugly, imo.

            I have never complained about difficulty before in my life for a hack but psyduck this games difficulty the first gym is a cheating whore no first gym leader should have berries on every pokemon aswell as use a potion on each I'm sorry thats not difficulty thats forcing the player to grind to an unnecessarily high lvl to beat a gym you should be able to win at lvl 14-15 without a huge difficulty.

                  this ROM has some of the nicest fakemon design i ever seen, unlike the 10 year old doddles I see in other hacks. this is coming from someone who usually dislike fakemon hacks.

                  yeah the difficulty is tough, simply because the way its designed you simply cannot grind levels to prepare for boss fights, unless you want to spend an inordinate time to do so. (super low level wild mons and normal trainers, high level gym leaders/elite trainers with competitive movesets).

                      Oh, this finally got here. I was wondering how long it would take to transfer this from the Nuzlocke Forums. I might do a run of it over there.

                        Nice to see a foreign language hack like this fully translated in English! Could you also translate Spanish hacks, like Pokemon Mystical?

                              Mt. Snowfall, on the upper floors. I'll have a locations guide up soon.

                                  This is truly one of the best hacks I've ever played. As this hack has been posted on RHM several months ago, some of us were already able to play through it then, what I did, until Apple decided to revoke GBA4iOS again, but thanks to Dropbox, I am still able to continue the post game story and catch more Pokémon.
                                  Also, I can only agree with what Spherical Ice said earlier: I, too, am glad to finally see this hack on PC. :)

                                    This hack could be very interesting to me. I do like the fakemon designs, they are quite solid. The battles are quite hard since they can use potion or berries as their last standing.

                                    Good Job on translating this hack, I would like to dig in to discover more :)

                                      This hack is sooo challenging and it's fine but I have 2 questions
                                      Where I can Find the VS SEEKER?
                                      Or where I can find a lucky egg

                                        Select the windows along the backwall, and they change the teleporting pattern. :) If I recall correctly, it is the second-from the left window.
