If you’ve played the original Pokemon FireRed, then you know that it was a splendid game. Even if you played LeafGreen, then the experience was pretty much the same except some Pokemon appearing in one and not at the other.

That’s right, you’re the villain, but your goal is not to hinder the hero’s progress because you have your own tasks to complete. Partake on an intriguing adventure of your own as you tackle the dark side of the Kanto Region. You’ll uncover parts of the story that were probably a bit too much to handle.
Battle Gym Leaders as they show their dark side. You’ll unravel the mystery that is the reason why Mewtwo was created. Don’t forget about stealing other people’s Pokemon because that’s what Team Rocket is all about. Explore the Kanto Region and uncover all original 151 Pokemon and maybe even more as you play Pokemon FireRed Rocket Edition.
