This hack aims to alter the Pokemon available in Crystal. While a lot of the Gen 2 Pokemon are still present, some of them have been changed in terms of types.

Then, the rest have been added from later generations. The file added is an IPS file that you have to patch using a Crystal ROM, and you have to find one yourself.

This guide will help you patch the IPS file if you’re not sure what to do.

Pokemon Serene Crystal Details and More


The story of Pokemon Serene Crystal is pretty much the same as the original Crystal. The hacker simply aimed to change some things in Crystal.

The story itself is still the same, so if you’ve played it before, then you know where to go and what to do.


One of the primary additions in the game is that it has other Pokemon beyond Gen 2. Not all of them are added but you have Pokemon going up to Gen 10 such as Annihilape.

Several Pokemon types have also been altered. Totodile is now a Ground-type rather than being a Water-type.

There are other cases like this that you can uncover. Pokemon sprites have also been altered for some of them. They don’t look like anything from Crystal but that’s not a bad thing.
