Pokemon R.O.W.E is a project by a simple person going by rioluwott. There isn’t an actual definition for ROWE but let’s just roll with it. It uses Pokemon Emerald as its base, and the story is the same for the most part. The other thing is that the location and characters are also the same.
There are a lot of interesting new features for this ROM hack. You can choose different modes and three levels of difficulty for this game. The creator states that this is their attempt to make a Pokemon ROM hack that utilizes an open-world mechanic or at least close to it.

Pokemon R.O.W.E Details and More
The story utilizes Emerald’s story; however, due to the game’s gimmick, the story could be altered in a way that you have to experience for yourself.
Before you start the game, you have the option to choose the difficulty from Easy, Normal, and Hard. You can even choose modes such as Perfect IVs, No IVs, Randomizer mode, etc. Mix up everything you want to ensure that you have a fun experience. The game also gives the player nine choices for their starter Pokemon.
The tenth one is a random Pokemon that they can get. Once you have your difficulty, mode, and starter selected, it is time to choose the location where you start off.
The game gives players some freedom here where they can go and which Gym Leader they can fight, so that’s a good feature to have.
