There have been a ton of ROM hacks where are remakes or adaptations of Gen 2 games. Crystal is particularly the most popular one, and we’ve already covered a lot of them. So, why not add another hack called Pokemon Fire Gold, the game slowly gaining popularity due to its quality which is outstanding.
It uses FireRed as the base, and the story, as well as the content, are all based on Gen 2. It is your usual hack with some nice gimmicks and features that we will tackle in a moment. This hack also uses elements from the Gen 4 remake Heart Gold so that’s also something good to look forward to.

Pokemon Fire Gold Details and More
The story is the same from Gen 2 and even in the remakes. You start off with Johto and travel all the way to Kanto after going through the story. It is the same with some slight modifications to the dialogue, but overall, it’s the same story.
If you notice, a majority of the sprites are based on Heart Gold, but overall it still looks like FireRed, which isn’t a bad thing. The Pokemon roster is a bit all over the place because you get them from Gen 4 until Gen 8 but not all of them are available.
A lot of the original features are still around like being able to get Acorns daily. The Legendary Pokemon are still roaming for random encounters and some items like the VS Seeker, which you can get early on in the game.
