Have you tried playing any Pokemon ROM hacks before? Whatever your answer, this page is exactly what you are looking. The old Pokemon GBA ROMs were boring, and sometimes we would love to try another Pokemon gaming adventure without leaving the GBA world.
Thanks to Pokemon fans and coders who strived very hard working on creating and improving ROM hacks. However, here is the bad news, as far as I know, Nintendo allows modifying of GBA ROMs. However, they do not permit distributing the original GBA ROMs such as the FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald, this means we can freely share any ROM hack but not the original GBA files.
If you are new to Pokemon rom modification, I’ll give you a brief explanation about this topic. Pokemon ROM hacks are modified Game Boy Advance rom files created by fans who are knowledgeable and have experienced playing the original game.
Pokemon fans made various modifications and improvements such as changing the music, gameplay, design, adding items, improving Pokemon skills, modifying the maps to make the game more interesting, fun, and better.
Most Pokemon ROM hacks are distributed in .ips or .ups file format. To play the game, you have to patch these files using patching tool such as Lunar IPS Patcher (IPS file patching) and tsukuyomi (UPS file patching); Please note that these files are for FREE, while some creators accept donations, you can report to the game author if you caught someone selling.
There are several ways to play GBA ROMS depending on device used. For Android users, you can follow this tutorial.
