Pokemon Light Platinum DS


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.

The game has plenty of noticeable improvements compared to its original rom base version.

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.

Download Pokemon Light Platinum DS now and play it with your favorite Nintendo DS emulator.

If you’re looking for cheats in this game, although we haven’t tested it yet, most likely, the regular Pokemon HeartGold cheats could also work in this game.

Hi guys, it’s Mike creator of the game. I tried to expand and create the map again but in NDS version this is not possible for me to make the entire game because of some features in the gba game that cannot be included in the nds version. But I am working on a new and much better Pokemon nds game and this will be my real project based on a completely new region suggest me the features you want in the game. Until stay tuned for Pokemon legend of feather

pokemon following you, easy normal and hard mode, all gen, variety of starter, xp share for everyone in party, mode for see ev and iv, mode randomizer, side quest and quest log, stuff for the post game, event for legendary

This Game will not be continued because of some personal life problem. Game version 0.1.1

I’m assuming this hack is still in version 0.1.1, in other words, HASN’T GOTTEN UPDATED IN YEARS. I enjoyed the GBA verison before, but to wait this long is annoying. hell, i’m a bit tempted to just try to recreate the entire game in Minecraft or something. doubt i’d be able to do that any time soon though.

Any idea when this game will be done? Estimated time??

When I realized that there are no move tutors or relearners in the game, I was really disappointed. That seems like a big oversight and may extensively limit your potential team. Still an interesting game, but it makes me not want to play it.

is this hack complete?

How to complete the puzzle in the first part guys?? Im stuck

Pokemon is cool

yes. yes it is.

Is it completed in 2020

I have drastic and heart gold cheats are not working

For anyone that wants to use cheats for this game, use the Spanish version of Heartgold’s AR codes. Most of the cheats work for me, including the pokemon encounter. (I managed to cheat in a lapras, and I would assume it would work for most of them in the base game.).

Why cant i advance to route 406? I am stuck at the marshland area. I did not encounter diamond, however i am not sure if she is even there in the nds version.

Are you not able to collect elekid in the beginning of the game like in the gba version?

You have to finish the proffesor quest and come back

Yeah I’m having the same issue. I know this is a year later but not sure if anyone did figure out this issue. I tried resetting it, making new save files and someone said something about not going inside the houses in Pantem Town and going straight to the swamp on Route 406. I’m just about to give up and play another ROM but I really like this one so far. But yea like I said I havent found anyother clues on how to fix this but if anyone knows by now then the answer is apreciated!

Still can’t pass through route 406. Game is dead

delta patcher error any fix?

Use the Spanish clean version to patch

Is it complete? (as of 2019)

No only up to 2nd gym

I tried using heart gold cheats for the game but it didnt seem to work
please help

I am using desmume and still, the cheats do not work

So the reason no one can get the Cheats from heart gold to work from your list is because the base of light platinum is the spanish version Aka:(SP) cheats I found work http://uk.codejunkies.com/search/codes/Pokemon-Edicion-Oro-HeartGold-(SP)_Nintendo-DS_17826756-17___.aspx

Doesn’t work for me. The money one freezes the game. I tried the EV/IV codes I found somewhere else to see if maybe that would work, but then the stats showed as 0.

In my game it’s still not working

there is no cheats codes in this game

Any cheats of this game???

Do you know if this Light Platinum DS is fully working? And if there is mega evo in? More. I can see a rowlet in the screenshots. Maybe 7th gen added too?

Besides pokemon soul silver and heart gold this is the best pokemon I’ve ever played honestly if they haven’t abundant this game would have been a resurrection of pokemon gaming jus saying someone really need to complete this game its been two long

for this to work you’ll need “pokemon edicion oro heartgold” (spanish version of heartgold) but there’s no place i can find it. Someone who knows a place where i can?

I have the same problem, the link provided in the ReadMe is now defunct, so I don’t know what to do either.

Use romsmania.com

no, do not use romsmania.com. it gives you roms in exe formats. roms are NEVER exe. this is for sure just a virus site

you don’t have to download them as .exe files… you just have to click “More Options” instead of Download and it’ll give you an option to download it without the .exe installer

The game is complete? I mean, the story, and how many legendary pokemons it has?

Can we play the whole story to the end?

Can we play the whole storyline or is there a point where we can’t progress further?

This is complete?

How can I download this game on android I play but still only normal heart gold

I cant go to route 406 esmerald city why?

I’m also having the same problem, anyone knows what to do??
