If you played Pokemon Outlaw, then you’ll love its sequel, which is Pokemon Korosu. The word korosu in Japanese means “kills”. That’s a bit morbid, but that’s one of the features in the game where you can actually kill enemy trainers. The kill is simply implied and on a black screen so you don’t see any violence.
Korosu has some of the dialogue from Outlaw which is for a bit more mature audience but either way, it’s Pokemon. This is an interesting GBA ROM hack that was made back in 2016 and has gotten recent updates in the past year. This is an interesting hack to play when you want to be invested in a somewhat mature story and more.

Details on Pokemon Korosu
The story takes place over a decade after Outlaw. Your character’s parents are murdered, and you are taken away to be one of those to be used as human trafficking. That sounds bad, but you escape their clutches and have to find a way to put an end to this once and for all. You start it out with your faithful Ghastly partner which will evolve later on. Explore two Regions to get your freedom.
The game does have a serious tone when it comes to the story and even some mature language with a couple of cursing. You even have the option to kill some of those trainers that you fought. Although, there really is no effect whether you kill them or not. Think of it as just a feature if you want to. It is still a Pokemon game so this means that you need to catch, train, and battle others along the way. It is a pretty straightforward ROM hack with all things considered.
