So far In this game I like the idea of it but I absolutely hate how the creator made the AI’s be able to use thunder wave or grass whistle for all the grunt pokemon it’s fricken ridiculous I’m giving this game 3 out of 5 stars


I can’t enter atlantic town coz trainer Eost hon stuck between tree and can’t active to fight with me. So how can I fix? Coz t can’t pass through.


I need help I don’t know how to get it to play


the exit for the ice cave where you get waterfall is broken. i cant exit, and therefore i cant progress. walkthrough walls causd a crash.


There’s two rock and some wholes that two rocks is the way so you can exit that ice cave 🙂
Just move it to the whole use s strength to push the rock


phisical and special split?


Is this a rom that you would recommend?


Can I play link battle’s in this game

Eric Deshpande

How do I open the game once I have this link downloaded?


Uhh which one should i download though, Does kaizo changes things or something?


i keep having a problem with a bug early in the game. When i run into a wall from inside a building, i am no longer able to move. The other sprites move as usual but i get stuck to the wall.

Nova Bee

This happened to me too! It’s happened twice now. I just started playing last night.

John Bruzdzinski

Do you know how to fix it?! I would greatly appreciate it!!! I had the same problem as you.

Gladiator king

Can I get a ‘wailmer’ in Pokemon dark rising zip file (1)


I gave Flourine the emerald in the dark rising hq and right after, whenever I try to leave the Pokemon center, it goes to a black screen. Is there any way to fix it so I can continue with the game?


Hey amazing roms (lots of strategic sets on random trainers, little frustrating but realy interesting and challenging) but i got a problem.
I got a torchic speed boost (great job adding hidden special abbilities) and it kept speed boost as a combusken but suddenly when it evolved to blaziken it got blaze! Why did it change? Is there a way to keep it? I reset the game to just before it evolves and tried a few times, it always changes to blaze.
Someone got something on this?


this game sucks the ai is impossible i hit my self 5 timses i confussion every time and i can´t fucking attack because every thing hits me with attract paralys and confusion and poison

Big Kyle

IS there a way I can play this on an Android phone? Or any of the fan made games?


i started playing and all of a sudden the game switched to a red tint when im outside how do i fix this?

dark rising kaido

In dark rising kaidi , sorry but im stuck at a part of game the guy who has to move to challenge me dont challenge so i got stuck and cant move foward.
It’s after the water cavern at dread swamp


im getting a error message when i load the game. it says that 1m sub-circuit board is not installed? how do i fix this


Is there physical and special split?


When you go back from Lavaburn Path to Tiki Village, there is your character image stuck in trees, then when u interact with it the game crashes, but other than that really good rom hack.


I really like this one and have put a lot of hours into it, only problem I have with it is that it doesn’t tell you wether a move is special or physical. A LOT of moves have this problem my garchomp is useless because dragon claw/outrage/stone edge are all special moves in this game for some reason. I had to find out by experimenting on a wobbuffet using counter/mirror force. It wouldn’t bother me if the game at least showed it for each move but no. zen headbutt physical? nope it’s special for some reason. Silver wind special? Nope… Read more »


Bro, this rom hack follows the basic knowledge for GEN1-3 where there is this so called “Physical/Special split”. Rock, ground, bug, steel, normal, flying, poison, fighting are Physical and Water, grass, fire, electric, psychic, dark, dragon, ghost are Special. GEN 4+ have the split so Silver Wind, even though it’s bug, it is now Special. Hope this helps.


I like that ????


Does the Kaizo version still have Drizzle or Drought on poliwag/vulpix? I can’t find these two with those abilities


What kind of dumb as bitch makes garchomp not able to learn stone edge…. you had one job…..


Is there a pokemon list


Is there any way to play it on Nintendo DS Lite with R4 Moonshell? If yes, how can I do that?


Just a heads up if you are in Atlantic Cave and you complete the boss battle DON’T come back to heal your team with Chaney. It will reset the enemies and you’ll have to repeat the whole three battles again. You can use healing items instead but it is not necessary once you finished those…


There’s a trainer who won’t notice me in Dread Swamp, so now im stuck pls help


Same Pls help us


Can I have an update if there is continuation of “Dark Rising : World Collide? “


Do you know the link for official website of DR? If yes please post it.


I am stuck at the frozen dungeon. Every walkthrough on YouTube is different because I guess none of them have the Lazio version. The second patch of ice seems impossible to make it through.


Man this game is bs you fight a shroomish with a infinite focus band and then game crashes maybe fix your game more


Is this game completed? what is the difference between Dark Rising and Dark Rising Kaizo Version?


From the text.
Kaizo Version is now available with some new additional moves, enemies, areas and includes fix on bugs & glitches.


needs to be fixed for mythical/legendary pokemon cheat, they litterally have 0-1 moves even on high level, i caught a munchlax and never evolved to snorlax, i get the ???? in the PC also when i use a cheat, also seems to appear as certain pokemon listed in the Mythical/Legendary cheat, they appear as a ? when in my pokemon bag, so like if i caught a mewtwo, it would appear as a ? and not even show what it looks like…. quite alot of bugs should be looked at and/or fixed in this version of dark rising. i would… Read more »


Am I the only one who has been receiving a lot of Bad Eggs? everytime I come to the game my 6th Pokemon always turn to a Bad Egg which is really annoying as f***. I’ve Save and exit properly and still it happens over and over.

Dia Riel

My entire problem with this hack is the sheer amount of bullshit that most of opponents have like almost every trainer in the parts that i played (up to frozen dungeon).

All had some form of confuse paralyze or sleep that they would spam and it honestly makes the game pretty frustrating and un-fun when the enemy is constantly using hypnosis or confuse ray or any form of paralysis that you and switch out and heal but then they just spam it more. Its stupid forms of bullshit that ruined it for me.


i didn’t find the status effect that annoying you just need to one shot almost everybody or try to avoid them (the pokemon with poison when you touch them) using sp attack


I just realised, I cannot EV train any of the pokemon / nor give any vitamins to my team. Is there something wrong here or something I am missing ?


Where can I download it


How do I find surf hm?


You can get it from Misty


Is there any cheat code for this version


Do I have to start over in my current game?


The Pokemon of the villians are actually trolls


is this completed?

Silver screen




I cant continue because there’s just a guy standing there
Btw awesome rom hack


does this new version have phys/spec split?


It does not. That’s usually a pretty big turn off for me personally but the game is really great in every other way.
