Pros of Using the Pokemon Modifier Cheat

  • Encounter Starter Pokemon easily.
  • Encounter Rare Pokemon or those that are unattainable. (i.e. Legendary, Event, and Limited Pokemon)
  • For ROM hacks, you can encounter Pokemon that are not even available in the game. (i.e. You can get Pokemon for Pokemon Fire Red beyond Gen 3)
  • Encounter the Wild Pokemon anywhere.

Cons of Using the Pokemon Modifier Cheat

  • It doesn’t happen all the time, but the cheat often has a bug where you will keep encountering the same Pokemon even if you remove the cheat.

Tips for Using the Pokemon Modifier Cheat

  • If you’re in no rush to get a modified Pokemon, encounter them in an area with the level that you want. Modified Pokemon will have the level based on the spawn area. (i.e. Route 1 Pokemon spawn from Level 1 or more, while Victory Road Pokemon spawn from Level 35 onwards)
  • Use the cheat to get Legendary or Mythical Pokemon early on. Why go to the Seafoam Islands to catch an Articuno when you can just encounter on a nearby tall grass?
  • Turn off or remove the code, so that the enemy Pokemon you encounter goes back to normal.

Frequenstly Asked Questions

Is it wrong to use this cheat?

It isn’t wrong but don’t use the Pokemon for competitive reasons.

The location of your captured Pokemon will be listed on its information tab, so you can get discovered easily. This is worse for those who want to use Legendary Pokemon.

For ROM hacks, are the modified Gen Pokemon (Pokemon not in the game) safe to use?

It is safe to use them because a lot of the custom Pokemon added to the hacks are still reliant on the game’s mechanics.

The hacker made attempts to make sure that the stats, types, and other details are in sync with the game.

Even if you modify and get Pokemon from later Generations, they are safe to use.

In Closing

The Pokemon modifier cheat makes everything better.

Why wait to encounter a Pokemon later when you can always modify the one you encounter?

The headache of throwing Ultra Balls or your lone Master Ball at a Legendary Pokemon will be gone with this cheat.

Hopefully, the cheats on the respective games will help you encounter your Pokemon of choice.
