You can use the different GBA emulators as they are the only ones compatible with this ROM hack. This ROM hack is currently in beta form, so there might be new updates later.


Just as we mentioned, the ROM hack is based on the episodes of the Orange Islands from the Indigo anime. If you’ve seen those episodes, then you may have an idea of how the game’s story will flow. However, some parts have been changed for the Pokemon Orange Islands ROM hack, but it can be the same.

While the game is a FireRed hack, the graphical presentation is a bit different. It doesn’t look like FireRed, and that’s not a bad thing. The game uses distinct sprites and different backgrounds that allow you to explore the different parts of the Orange Islands.

We mentioned that the original 151 Generation I Pokemon is in the game. When you also start the game, you play as Ash Ketchum. You start off with Pikachu as well as his other staple Pokemon during the events of the anime. These include Bulbasaur, Charizard, Squirtle, and Muk.

Several items are available in the game, but not all the TM and HM are there. Speaking of items and HMs, you can use some of these as items. You can use Dive, Whirlpool, Rock Climb, and Rock Smash. Plus, there is an interesting feature where you won’t lose a Poke Ball if it fails to capture a Pokemon.

Based on the story as well, you only get to face off against 4 Gym Leaders, which is somewhat staying true to the Pokemon Orange Islands arc.

  1. I try to complete the pokedex in this game, all I need now is Ivysaur, Vinesaur, Wartortle and Blastoise but I couldn’t find wild bulbasaur and squirtle anywhere, so frustrating.

    • You can find free ones in Pallet town. They can also be caught in the Pokemon Park (Bulbasaur) and the water of Ascorbia Island (Squirtle).

  2. Really underestimated hackrom. It is completed though, the creator says he will not call it finished until a year or so for possible bugfixes.
