Fan Made Pokemon Games List ( RPG Maker XP)

A lot of people love Pokemon fan-made games as well as those ROM hacks. Nintendo can’t pump out a lot of Pokemon games every year. The quality would suffer, and the value of Pokemon would diminish. That’s where these fan-made games and ROM hacks come in to quench the thirst of people that love playing Pokemon.

There are a lot of them out there, and before you read through our list of the best Pokemon rom hacks and fan-made games, you need to know the difference between the two.

The Difference Between Fan Made Pokemon Games and Pokemon ROM Hacks

Fan Made Pokemon Games

Pokemon fan made games, as the name suggests are made by the fans or regular people. The fan made Pokemon game uses the concept of Pokemon, but the game could be entirely different. The game may not be similar to traditional Pokemon games, but they have Pokemon in there. They use various programs like RPG Maker XP  and Pokemon Essentials to make the game.

There is also the chance that these games are made only for PC when they have file formats like .exe. Some of them can be flash games or browser games, but that’s not a bad thing.

Pokemon ROM Hacks

Pokemon ROM hacks use the data from an actual Pokemon game. Let’s take Pokemon Emerald, for example. The person making the ROM hack can use the data from that game. This allows them to make an entirely new game using the character sprites, Pokemon sprites, Pokemon moves, music, locations, and more.

You could say that it cuts the programmer’s job in half because all they need to do now is come up with a different story to hash out a new game. The more skilled programmers can edit the sprites and data to make a different looking game.

There are even those that use sprites and HUDs from other Pokemon games. You can have a Pokemon Emerald ROM hack, but it can incorporate sprites from Pokemon Diamond, which is a game from a different system.

Finally, these ROM hacks can be played on different emulators like My Boy, John GBA, Visual Boy Advance, mGBA, VBA-M, OpenEmu, and GBA4iOS. They can’t be played on their own because they are ROMs and not stand-alone games.

Fan Made Pokemon Games

Yeah, that’s it! I hope this cleared out the misconception. Just remember, fan-made and rom hacks are two different things. In this post, you will find the list popular fan made Pokemon games.

Hi
What pokemon games hacks and fan made can i play on a modded Nintendo ds?

Actually, you can now play fangames on android. I have Reborn fully working on mobile, using the latest Patreon builds of the Joiplay app and it’s RPGMaker plugin. 30 megabytes, no internet required, and depends on your phones RAM and Processor. Running an Essential-PH1 with almost nil lag, no battery drainage or overheating.

It is no longer a dream, people.

I think that you should also add Pokemon Dusk, because in this fan game

part mishra

I think that you should also add Pokemon FireAsh, because in this fan game, you can explore all the regions of the core series pokemon games.

I think all the games listed are awesome. But I think Pokemon Gaia should be added. I didn’t see it up there,

Cameron

One problem, just one.
Where is Reborn? Just wondering why it’s not on this list, want to hear your opinion.

I really enjoy Pokemon survival island

Vash101

It would be awesome if someone could make the Pokemon Sun & Moon into a GBA platform and would base on Pokemon Emerald.
