Pokemon Light Platinum DS is one of the most successful Pokemon DS rom hacks. The original Pokemon Light platinum for GBA was released in 2011, and due to the game’s growing popularity, the developer made a remake of Pokemon Light Platinum using Pokemon HeartGold as a ROM base and making it available for Nintendo DS.
Pokemon Light Platinum DS has 107 Pokemon from six different generations. In the game, you can encounter fairy-type Pokemon, and also, there is an increased chance of meeting shiny Pokemon in the wild. There are plenty of noticeable improvements in the game compared to its original rom base version.
Whilst hasn’t been updated for several years, the game still captures the heart of many gamers.
Update: Great news. There’s ongoing progress happening right now, and the Light Platinum DS community is super excited for the final release, which hasn’t been unveiled yet.
Modifying Pokemon DS games is not easy at all; it takes a lot of time to create a game as compared to GBA rom hacking. But the tremendous number of positive reviews for the Pokemon Light Platinum DS inspires many rom hackers to explore more into DS rom hacking.
