If you are new to Pokemon rom modification, I’ll give you a brief explanation about this topic. Pokemon ROM hacks are modified GBC, GBA or NDS rom files created by fans who are knowledgeable and have experienced playing the original Pokemon game.

These Pokemon players made various modifications and improvements such as changing the music, gameplay, design, adding more items, improving Pokemon skills, editing the maps to make the game more interesting, fun, and better.


Pokemon ROM hacks are distributed in the file formats .ips,.ups for GBC and GBA and xdelta for NDS. To play the game, you have to patch these files using a patching tool such as Lunar IPS Patcher (IPS file patching) and Tsukuyomi (UPS file patching); Please note that these files are for FREE, while some creators accept donations, you can report to the game author if you caught someone sells patch files.

    • Hi there pal, we constantly improving our website, not just the contents but we also aim for the best possible experience of our visitors. I’m glad you like the new design of Pokemoncoders. ????

      • hey

        I would like to request for a dark theme option to be added on here please

        and keep up the great work on this site

        • Thanks pal. Though dark theme might be a good idea but it will take plenty of time to create such a design. But we’ll surely consider your request.

    • Hey there pal, thanks for dropping here. The old comment box is outdated and lacks important functionality, that’s why we replaced it with this new and improved one. As you can see, you can now sort comments, vote and new design. I hope you like it. 

    • Thanks for the suggestion Fabio, sure we will do that and that’s definitely a good idea. Do you have some good GBC hack recommendations?

  1. Hello Pokemoncoders I just want to say that your cheats work for my pokemon games I love them please make more to make the games fun!

    • Hi BrandonGamer, thank you for taking the time to post your inspiring message. I rarely receive such a message to our readers, and we very much appreciate it.

  2. Anyone know the ROM hack where the game starts out by telling you that Gary has gone crazy and is using Pokemon to kill people? I found it a few years ago, but I can’t seem to find it anymore.

  3. One game that you could put on here is Pokémon StarDrop.

    The game starts off normal until you go downstairs. You meet someone new (no spoilers!) and promise to go to the nearby lake with them.

    However, to do this, you need to get supplies from Silver Town, and to do that, you need a pokémon.

    If you’re unlucky and lose to your first wild Pokémon, don’t panic! The game has an adjustable difficulty curve so that it gets easier or harder depending on your skill level.

    That’s about all I’m gonna say for this rom hack, since I haven’t gotten too much farther, but it is an awesome hack nonetheless.


    Custom Region
    Pokémon from a few different regions
    Adjustable difficulty curve
    Your rival isn’t a jerk like Gary

    Remember, though, that this game is on it’s early Alpha stages, so you can’t complete the game just yet.

  4. I downloaded the last version of game boy the paid version but and downloaded four ROMs hacks everytime I want to play it tells me unrecognised GBA any answer please for what I should do

    • For beginners I would suggest starting with Pokemon Gaia, Pokemon Adventures Red Chapter, Pokemon Ash Gray or Dark Rising.
