How To Patch

I understand how this tutorial isn't needed, but there are so many new pipol that still kept on asking how to patch... =/
Anyway... No fancy things here. I'm going straight to the point.

  • What You Need
    1. A Pokémon ROM
    2. A patch of the hack you want to play...
    3. A patcher (Lunar IPS Patcher, UPS Patcher (download Winrar if you can't extract/open .rar files))
  • Information
    Hacks/Mods have different patches available. If the patch is .ips, then you'll need Lunar IPS Patcher. If the patch is .ups, then you'll need the UPS Patcher. If the patch download is in .rar, and you can't open or extract it, then download and install WinRAR.​
