You will play as Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town! Just after Ash conquered the Indigo League, he returned to his mom in his hometown, where Professor Oak also has a new objective for him. He wants Ash to go to Valencia Island to pick up a strange kind of Pokeball for him since Professor Ivy cannot send it to him through the PC system. Of course, Ash is eager to take this leisurely objective. What happens after this is, of course, already known to you because we all saw the anime.

Known Bugs

  • The surfing Lapras sprite occasionally overlaps some other overworld sprites and sometimes doesn’t appear.
  • Occasionally, a supereffective Thunderbolt causes an annoying sound loop. For now, restarting the game fixes it.


The current Beta version (5.7) is completely finished, including the Movie 2000 Event on Shamouti Island.




Talk to the old lady in Sunburst Island’s Pokemon Center, she will give you a hint. In general, talk to NPC’s. They often tell useful information.

Someone on Trovita Island will give you the Whirlpuller after you beat Rudy. In general, talk to NPC’s. They occasionally give away items.

Talk to Tracey in Pallet Town after the Shamouti Island Event, he will help you further.

Because they are a different color in the Anime as well.

Waterfall is solely an attacking move in this game. The field effect has been removed on purpose.

It’s catchable after you beat the Orange League.

First, the story for this game is based on the Anime and not truthful to the Anime. Therefore, I chose to make gym battles instead of the Anime challenges (Wave race, Sled race, etc), because those fit in better within a Pokémon hack based on Fire Red. After all, the whole game is based on battling with Pokémon, not racing with them.

Despite the fact that trading is working in Orange Islands, I want to make the Pokedex fully completable without the need to trade. Therefore I made Kadabra, Graveler, Haunter and Machoke evolve at level 40 instead.


Generation III, except for some Pokemon that Ash originally obtained in the Anime. Some of those Pokemon will have slightly altered movesets, like Charizard learning Seismic Toss by leveling up and Butterfree learning Gust at an earlier level.

No, they’re not in the Anime and they don’t have my interest. Lugia, Slowking and Marill will be included, however, because they make an appearance in the story.
