Pokemon Ancestral X Details and More


The story is pretty much the same as Pokemon X and Y. You may already know what to do and where to go if you’ve played those games already.


The creator of this hack has stated that this is a difficulty hack made for Nuzlocking. Whether you Nuzlocke or not is up to you, but the game is going to be very hard, so it’s best to get that out of the way first.

All Pokemon have been balanced and tuned just right for this hack. All 721 of them are also available, which is until Gen 6. ORAS Mega Evolutions have also been added to this hack.

Several Rare Items, like Rare Candies and others have been made available for purchase.
