There are a lot of Pokemon FireRed-based ROM hacks out there, so why not add another one. The hack we’re talking about is Pokemon Flare.
The interesting thing about this is that you’ll be playing FireRed’s story as well, but the creator says that you’ll be experiencing it backward.
What does that mean? It pretty much is an alternative take on FireRed.
You have the same locations, but the designs or the map have been changed to make things more interesting. To make things better, several features have been added as well.

Pokemon Flare Details and More
According to the creator, the story is traveling in Kanto but backward. The game begins with you at the Indigo League, but everything proceeds as normal.
It is best to experience the story on your own. It is the same as FireRed dealing with Team Rocket and becoming the best Pokemon Trainer around.
One feature is that you don’t get the three Kanto starters. You choose from Slowpoke, Rhyhorn, and Grimer. We already mentioned traveling Kanto backward.
Moves also go up to Gen 6, but the Pokemon roster is just around Gen 3. Fairy-type is also included and made available to those in the game.
Gym Leaders can also be fought again once the Elite Four has been defeated. Speaking of the Elite Four, you can fight them in any order. There are also several mini-games that you can play.
