In this post, you will find the collection of the best Fan-made Pokemon games. You can’t go wrong with these games as these are already popular, fun and with lots of support from fans and developers.
But before we dive into the main topic, let’s discuss first the difference between fan made Pokemon games and Pokemon rom hacks. There are certain misconceptions with these two terms, and I will try to clarify it here and hopefully, I can explain it well especially to beginners.
The Difference Between Fan Made Pokemon Games and Pokemon ROM Hacks
Fan Made Pokemon Games
In the Pokemon gaming world, the terms “Fan Made” or “Fan Games” usually used to refer for those Pokemon games made using RPG Maker XP. These games are playable only on Windows computers in the form of a .exe file format.
Pokemon ROM hacks
On the other hand, Pokemon games that are played using GBA emulators such as My Boy, John GBA, Visual Boy Advance, VBA-M, OpenEmu, and GBA4iOS are called ROM hacks.
ROM hacks are made through grabbing of GBA ROMs and modifying its existing content to create a new game, and this referred to as ROM hacking. Rom hacking involves changing or improving sprites, graphics, maps, dialogue and some other parts of the game.
Yeah, that’s it! Hope this cleared out the misconception. Just remember, fan-made and rom hacks are two different things. In this post, you will find the of list popular fan made Pokemon games.
