Pokemon DS Rom Hacks

Pokemon rom hacking has truly gone extra miles these days. Although most rom hacks are on the Game Boy Advance, more and more rom hackers are taking a new step by creating amazing Pokemon DS Rom Hacks.

As compared to Pokemon rom hacks created for Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Color, Nintendo DS games are spectacular with its futuristic features and decent looking design making it more appealing to users to play either on a desktop or mobile devices.

Even though DS emulators are widely available on desktop and mobile, Pokemon DS games are way more difficult and challenging to modify just the same with Nintendo 3ds and Nintendo switch games. This explains why there are only a few of these Pokemon Nintendo DS ROM hacks are available.

You actually can patch ds Roms on mobile at least on Android with an app called rom patcher
(App no longer available in App store)

For me, the Pokemon games are the best games ever created for NDS Console. I play them a lot and at this moment I’m playing the Pokemon – Platinum Version. There are more games that I found interesting to play on the list published in the article.

My favourite rom hack is Pokémon spork because it let me use many different mons and is easier to grind

Pokemon sword and shield

Moon Silver and Sun Gold are based on StormSilver and SacredGold respectively, which have some interesting adds to the base story and some changes in type matchups. In average, very Good Hacks. I don’t like what they did to Sceptile in Sp. Atk tough…

Phil

Is these games already completed or in development?

Vaibhav Kumar

Zexel

What emulator works best here? I have DesMuMe, but that seems to be incooperable.

Ash

The light platinum NDS version doesn’t show up in my Drastic, and I paid for the full version….. yet I can find the file on MyBoy emulator? What gives?

Jayzed

Since you are using android, you need to use a files app like the native file explorer or ES to move the rom’s file location, basically just cutting and pasting it into your Drastic folder.

It should show up no matter what directory or location the rom hack is, or maybe that’s just because im using a different phone or drastic ds version… or something like that.

Tyler
