Since its release, Pokémon has proved itself to be a captivating concept on every platform, be it TV, movies, or gaming. This absolute love for Pokémon characters and adventures has become a major motivating power for a huge group of game modders who work towards creating highly personalized unofficial variants of Pokémon games named ROM Hacks. This mod intends to cater to all the fans who do not find Pokémon’s TCG board game up to the mark. Players often get confused amongst these options so here are the top three ROM Hacks available out there for you to check out while you wait for The Crown Tundra to release.
Pokémon Omega Red
ROM Hack of original Pokémon Fire Red is much better and diverse than the original game. To begin with, all the 807 Pokémon are present in the Kanto region. The game adds Fairy type, Alolan forms, and new moves into the mix, completely transforming the experience of the game.
Pokémon Unbound is one of the most well-known and widely played amongst all the ROM Hacks. The modded game has a couple of variations. The first of them is the Unfinished Alpha, wherein the game is located in the Borrius region while the second one is called the Battle Frontier. The second version is what holds the actual Pokémon Unbound thrill. The game comes equipped with over 100 separate Pokémon to learn about and ensures the addition of a new Pokémon every month.
This version of the modded Pokémon game is one of the most innovative and unique in terms of plotline and area of operation. Though the Pokémon are not as many as Omega Red and the battle type is not at par with Pokémon Unbound, Gaia provides a new game-like experience while players wait for the release of The Crown Tundra. New characters in the game are remarkable despite the music being the same as that of Fire Red and Ruby games.
ROM Hacks are littered all over the internet, and it has become fairly easy to find them. The coders have really explored all possibilities of creativity when making these unofficial games. While some add Pokémon that are unheard of, some establish a unique plot for the players to enjoy. Players can easily opt to play and beat any of the ROM Hacks, as mentioned above, once they are done with the Isle of Armor.
