    I love Pokémon Gaia Version! It's a great hack with a lot of new content, including new Pokémon, new regions, and a new story. The difficulty is also challenging, which makes it a great game for experienced Pokémon players.

    I also love Pokemon Infinite Fusion. It's a really unique and innovative hack that allows you to fuse two Pokémon together to create a new Pokémon. This leads to a lot of new and interesting possibilities, and it's a lot of fun to experiment with.

    I'm glad to see that there are still people out there who are passionate about creating new and innovative Pokémon hacks. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what the future holds for these two hacks.

    Loved this game the first time I played via emulator, but I am partway through a real hardware run using everdrive and... dang, its not good. I wouldn't recommend this game if you are playing on original hardware. The level curve is far, far too steep. You will have to do sizeable amounts of grinding on every single route. I mean, I've been doing quite a bit of grinding, and all my mons are around level 25 by the time you fight the mega ring boss. She has a full team of level 30s AND she has mega evolution. All the bosses at this point tend to have fully evolved pokemon, and meanwhile almost none of the pokemon available to you at this point have evolved. Besides my starter, my entire team is still stage 1. Grinding out a bunch of levels would take maybe 10 minutes on emulator with speed-ups, but I'd be staring down probably an hour in order to reach the "recommended" level. Its too bad that the game is designed around not having a proper level curve instead of introducing a way to quickly gain levels up to a cap, or something.

    No one can't estimate. Only the creator know

    Hello Spherical Ice! I just wanted to say thank you for this incredible game. I just finished my hardcore Nuzlocke and I couldn't be more grateful that I got to experience a game of this caliber. Thank you so much for all the hard work you and the rest of the development team put in, I had the time of my life with this game and grew my skills as a battler so much over the course of the game. Thank you for making me a better Pokémon trainer, and thank you for the amazing experience that is Pokémon Gaia.

    I made an account here just to be able to comment about this game. (Im sure I'll be back.)

    Gaia is the first hack/fan-game I've played to completion. From a technical standpoint, it feels as though it were put together by a professional developer. I did not encounter a single technical issue, not one bug. It looks beautiful. The routes invite exploration. The cities feel actually inhabited. The battles are challenging without being punishing. And there is means to grind without it taking the left half of forever to get a few more levels.

    Its technical achievements aren't make make it standout to me, though. I can get past a few bugs or technical issues, especially from fan developers— who out of sheer love are learning as they go. What made me drop the other fan games I've tried so far, was actually poor dialogue and writing.

    Gaia's dialogue is good. Very good. Better than that of any other hack or played. And no shade to those other folks; I'm sure the big league developers have whole teams devoted to just that element. But I have a harder time getting past iffy grammar or pulpy writing. Just takes me out of the experience. I was so pleased with Gaia's writing.

    And to top that, the world building! Gaia's Orbtus feels so richly conceived. History, culture; a terrorist group driven by social-political issues instead of a ten year old's conception of boob-headed criminality (I'm looking at you Team Rocket). I was so sad to complete v3 today, because there's so much potential for more here. But even so, it's already so rich.

    My sincerest congratulations to the team. And my thanks for such a fun outing with one of my very favorite game franchises. Game Freak and Niantic could take notes, especially with some of the weaker installments in recent years. (I actually liked sword and shield, but that's another conversation; and Legends Arceus has a lot going for it, but could have been even better).

    Hello, new here.
    So I LOVE Pokemon Gaia, it is an awesome hack; I gotta say bud, it's so good, almost too good!
    It's also very funny too, the funniest line I think I encountered, was the one where I got into that one area, where the npc was saying, "Boy, the trainers in this area are tough!"
    And then immediately as I got further, a pokemon trainer stopped me for a battle, conveniently saying, 'I'm one tough nut to crack!" XD
    The hack had a lot of wholesome moments like that, which really makes the game stand out!

    My question, was if the original devs plan to make any more Pokemon hacks? I want to play them too! I like want more here! Will they consider making anymore roms for pokemon firered? If not, really you guys should highly consider it, you can keep this thing like going

    so when I was playing, it said that it was made in 2018, and it said after I beat the game that it would be another 4 years until the next update.
    so it's been like 6 years now. @_@
    I noticed that I wasn't able to get to the other two islands after I beat the elite four :(
