  2. Hey! I have been on the search for a nice ROM hack but find it difficult to find what I am looking for I’m looking for a fun custom ROM hack that meets the following criteria:

    Must include:
    – Pokémons from gen I (and II)
    – All Pokémons are accessible in some way (leveling, items, internal trade, catching, unique new ways, but not relying on external trade)

    Could include:
    – Kanto, then Johto based order (like the anime)
    – Improved move-pool by levelling
    – Side-quests

    Should not include:
    – Pokémons gen III onwards
    – Relying on external trade-evolutions

    I hope someone knows which ROM hack I will enjoy the most!
