There are a lot of Fakemon ROM hacks out there. Like the Moemon series, they simply change the sprites of the Pokemon into those cute chibi girls. Then, there are those that are full-blown sprite changes and original Pokemon just like Fakemon FireRed.
This ROM hack prides itself on having 252 original Fakemon, with 19 of them having their Mega Evolution. It’s an interesting ROM hack since it is basically just FireRed with Fakemon and a couple of interesting more features that you might like.

Fakemon FireRed Details and More
The story is the same as FireRed. You probably know where to go and what to do to progress the story. You’ll just be using Fakemon this time and none of the original Pokemon.
We’ve said it multiple times, but this game only has Fakemon and none of the original Pokemon. Technically, we wouldn’t know which Generations these are from since they are original. They maintain the Pokemon typings and some of the Moves and other key elements in progression, growth, and combat.
These Fakemon also have their own unique and original cries. There’s also the Fairy-type added and two original types being Cosmic and Digital with their strengths and weaknesses. New Abilities and Items are also included in the mix. A lot of the basic features and kept as well as newer ones are added.
