The intention of this hack is to be the definitive Emerald experience, adding many quality of life and gameplay conveniences to make the game more bearable to play in 2022.

This aims to be really close to the vanilla experience, so no modern features like PSS will be added. No extra story events or altered encounters will happen, and neither will be making getting shinnies easier.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix PSS icons in the summary screen
  • Fix partner battles when skip intro setting is set to on. This was most noticeable in the partner battle tower.


  • Battle scene was renamed to battle move anims
  • All the Options will show OFF/ON instead some having those swapped, this also applies to EMERALD/CUSTOM in the UI menu. You might have the old title screen the first time you load your save after patching, this gets fixed once you save again or refresh the title screen by entering the options menu.

New Features

  • Option to enable/disable Pokémon sprite anims in battle. Credit: @Deokishisu#3251 (on Discord)
