This Pokemon is too lazy too make any creative shit, and would sitting down like a sack of potatoes and play video games.
I haven't played a lot of rom hacks (only a few), but out of the few ones I've played, Crystal Clear is by far my favourite one. Not only is it surprisingly compatible with Gen 7 and Pokebank (if you hack your 3DS like I did), but it takes the gameplay of Gen 2 and turns it into an open-world game where I can take on any Gyms at any order I'd want. As a fan of open-world games (I'm unashamed to say that Skyrim is my favourite game. :yay:), this feels like the Pokemon game I never thought I would've wanted. Also the fact that you can catch all 251 Pokemon in Gen 2, including the event-exclusive ones, have a legal check for Mew to be transferred to Gen 7, a trade-back guy who would let you evolve Pokemon like Haunter and Porygon,Pokemon being able towalk with you in the overworld...It felt like this rom hack was nothing more but a fantasy until I've played it.

I maintain Scorched Earth as probably the most solid FireRed hack out there on the web right now. Only issue is that it was hosted on the old Nuzforums and I have no clue if the files are still available.

The only fangame I've tried is Omicron, which is a New Region game. The writing isn't always great, but the level curve is actually reasonable so there isn't an obnoxious amount of grinding.

Takes plenty of siestas, somewhat of a clown, impetuous and silly
even if i wasn't doing an insurgence run right now.... i'd say it's between any drayano hack (we pretend fire red omega doesn't exist! it's a crime) and... well, insurgence. dray's difficulty hacks and pokemon buffs make the game fun and fresh, and insurgence is well... insurgence. lots of content.

I'm trying out a hack called pokemal, the premise of which is basically removing all the Pokemon and enlacing them with real, honest-to-god animals. It's currently in beta, and I'm only past the fourth gym, but I'm really liking it so far.

Just an Ordinary Trainer that doing his Nuzlocke
Pokemon Supernova Sun and Penumbra Moon from Dio vento still my favorite Pokemon hack until this day. Aside offering assortments of many Pokemon that couldn't be normally found in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon series, the challenge is INCREDIBLY REAL. Even if you are not doing a Nuzlocke challenge on it. Also if you loves to hunting Shiny mons through Masuda method, this hack makes the eggs hatch much faster, so I recommend ya to try it at least once.

Also...I like Pokemon Insurgence and Pokemon Clover too, as well.

Suddenly just started making maps for something called a SRB2.
Renegade Platinum is nuckin' futs - and I say that as a compliment.

You get hard but not entirely punishing boss fights that require you to strategize instead of just rolling over enemies with the right type, and every Pokémon in Gen 4 is readily available, making for a diverse experience for any Nuzlocker!
