This is a lore-focused Fire Red hack designed for casual players. It was developed several years ago, with ongoing content additions and fixes until recently. Therefore, don’t anticipate modern features. It can be time-consuming, especially if you thoroughly explore everything and engage in various side quests. The game is divided into two parts, labeled A and B. You’ll need to use save states to transition your progress from Part A to Part B (detailed instructions can be found below in the “Playing Part B” section).

In terms of the story, the game comprises a prologue, four chapters, and a brief epilogue. In regards to difficulty, it offers a greater challenge compared to traditional Pokémon games, though most players should not encounter significant difficulty in completing it.

Playing Part B

When prompted by the game, you will need to use your most recent save file (saving state) to continue the story in Part B. Depending on your emulator, you may need to rename or relocate a file to a different folder.

In terms of the storyline, you must transition to the new ROM after boarding the ship known as S.S. CHALLENGER. This should occur after you have obtained all 8 badges and participated in the initial rounds of the championship at Battle Colosseum.


This game follows the journey of a 16-year-old girl hailing from the serene island of Crysta. Her aspiration is to attain the title of Pokémon Champion, vying for one of the coveted eight positions in the finals held on the enigmatic island of Elysium. Little does she know, an ancient malevolent force, orchestrating a scheme that has been in motion for over a century, threatens not just her and her companions but the entire world itself.


  • A mix of Pokemon, moves, and types up until Pokémon X and Y. Gen I, II, and III mostly but there’s a good number of Pokémon from the next generations like Hippopotas, Garchomp, or Galvantula (Check the online Excel file for the full list of obtainable Pokémon)
  • Fairy Type-Pokémon & Moves (replacing old ones)
  • Physical-Special Split
  • A very few story-only related fakemon and fake moves
  • Several Regions to explore.
  • Side quests that reward you with rare Pokémon, moves, or special items.
  • This game comprises two parts, namely the Main Game (A) and the Finale (B).

The Main Game unfolds primarily in the Rhea region, which serves as the central focus of the game, along with a smaller region named Savahnn. This section of the story encompasses Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and Chapter 3. The prologue, on the other hand, transpires on the idyllic island of Crysta.

The climax of the game predominantly occurs in several key locations, including the enigmatic island of Elysium, aboard a cruise ship, and a series of islands referred to as the Therian Islands. This segment is central to Chapter 4 of the narrative.

What to do

  • Use save states to preserve your progress instead of relying on the game’s built-in save function. This method allows you to transfer your progress to Part B seamlessly. (In Visual Boy Advance, you can achieve this by pressing SHIFT+F1 to save an instance as a .sgm file)
  • For an added challenge, consider switching the Battle Style to “SET.”

What NOT to do

  • Don’t get hung up on completing the Pokédex. You can’t catch all the Pokémon, the focus of this ROM Hack is the story.
  • Do not release Pokémon that were given to you for obvious story reasons, as this may lead to the game being soft-locked. Only release Pokémon that you have personally caught using a Poké Ball.

Known Issues/Bugs

  1. A minor graphical glitch may appear in the menu, but it does not impact gameplay.
  2. Be cautious when inspecting the ‘Agent Card’ item, which is obtainable through a side mission, as it has the potential to crash the game. Note that this item is available for purchase only.
  3. There’s a risk of encountering a softlock at a specific juncture in the game if you release a Lapras before obtaining the HM Surf.
  4. In extremely rare instances, the player sprite might experience unexpected distortion. This can be swiftly resolved by entering or exiting a building or cave or by using the FLY ability. Efforts have been made to address this issue, but there remains a slight chance of encountering it.

Please be mindful that there may be occasional spelling or language errors within the game, as English is not the creator’s native language.


Version 1.0.3

File A

  • Fixed an instance where for some players returning back from Savahnn it wouldn’t allow them to proceed with the story in the Rangers HQ
  • Map/dialogue fixes.

File B

  • Map fix: the boundaries of the mind prison have been switched to black color, to not confuse the players.
