Pokemon Jupiter is a ROM hack of Ruby. This is an interesting one because this hack was created all the way back in 2009. The latest updates about it were somewhere around the mid-2010s’. It’s an intriguing hack because some think that it is incomplete and some bugs have not been fixed. Then again, the important thing is that it is playable.
The character you play as is Ivan from the Golden Sun games. There are elements from those games incorporated in Jupiter but it is still a Pokemon game never the less. Speaking of the Pokemon, the game has a mixture of random Pokemon from different Generations and a plethora of Fakemons that you can catch, train, evolve, and use in battle.
