Hello, Welcome back to Pokemoner.com, and I'm Pokemoner. We will play Pokemon Radical Red. It's Feature Hack ROM and based on Pokemon Fire Red by soupercell and koala4.

Oh well, It's the same as all Feature Hack ROMs I posted. It has a lot of feature such as moves up to gen 8, including some moves from Isle of Armor DLC, Mega Evolution, Fairy Type, PSS System, Abilities up to Gen 8, Pokemon up to Gen 7, Trainer AI is smarter, and more and more... And now, Let's play because it's playable.

Physical/Special split + Fairy Typing
All Pokémon up to Gen 7 obtainable, including Melmetal (with some exceptions, see further down)
Moves up to Gen 8, including some of the Isle of Armor DLC moves!
Updated Pokémon sprites
Mega Evolution
Abilities up to Gen 8
Important battle items up to Gen 8
Raised level cap to 250, although this won't be super relevant until post-game is added
Reusable TMs
Expanded TM list
Additional move tutors
EV Training Gear
Ability popups during battle
Gen 8 Exp Share
Hidden Abilities
Day and Night
DexNav, which allows you to search for Pokemon with hidden abilities and other neat things!
Even faster turbo speed (!!!)
Abilities like Magma Armor have field effects like recent Gens
Destiny Knot, Everstone have updated breeding mechanics
... and more!

Additional Features
Much higher difficulty
Bosses have max IVs with proper EV spreads (barring the early bosses), along with optimized movesets/hold items
Improved AI
Battle style forced to Set
Can't access bag against Gym Leaders and other select bosses
Similar to Pokemon Clover, there is a soft level cap based on the next boss battle. Many "challenge" hacks can easily be beaten by simply spamming turbo boost and over leveling. This prevents you from doing so, instead of allowing you to reevaluate your team and strategy to defeat bosses.
Bosses near the end will randomly choose between 1 of 3 teams
Elite Four Members each have a Legendary
Gym Leaders have access to Mega Evolution before you do
Some optional side bosses will have their levels scale according to your team
Johto Gym Leaders as additional side bosses(Some mandatory, but mostly optional)
Brendan as an additional Rival
Archer and Ariana present as Admins
Thief/Magician won't steal from trainers
An additional Team Rocket event right before the 8th gym
No need for teaching HMs(Or Dig!)
My own curated buffs to a lot of deserving Pokémon, including Megas!
May include type changes, stat changes, ability changes, an additional learn sets
Brand new abilities (Some taken from Clover, others exclusive to this game)
A revamped Game Corner
No more coins/Coin Case, just exchange with regular Pokecoins
Sells pseudo legends for a steep price, with options to upgrade to Shiny
Sells even more TMs
IV grade and colored natures on Summary Screen
An IV perfecter in Celadon for a very steep price
EV checker/reducer in Saffron
An ability swapper also in Saffron, along with an option to swap to Hidden Ability in exchange for an item
EV training areas with its corresponding EV training gear
Move relearner moved to Cerulean
Move tutor that teaches Egg moves
Additional Legendaries obtainable before the Elite Four:
Virizion, Cobalion, Terrakion, Keldeo.
Roamers: Raikou, Suicune, Entei, Landorus, Thundurus, Tornadus, Latios, Latias, Victini, Meloetta
Gym leaders may ask for rematches or side quests for their Mega Stones and other rewards
Daycare south of Cerulean now can hold two Pokemon allowing for earlier breeding
... and more!

A couple of notes...
Z moves are NOT in this game
On the opposite side of the spectrum, Gems are not implemented as they're a little too irrelevant. It's a nerf to the move Acrobatics as well as Unburden Pokemon
Furthermore, the Plates and Memories haven't been implemented due to my laziness, so Arceus and Silvally will not be available at any stage of this game

Emulators this won't work on: mGBA,OpenEmu, doesn't appear to work on 3DS either
Tested to work with: VBA, VBA-M, MyBoy
I would suggest playing with VBA or VBA-M. Please remember to enable Real Time Clock and to set save type to Flash 128K before playing.
Any other emulator not tested has not been tested so try to avoid them if you can.
Please patch to Fire Red Squirrels!
Some random cool things you can do thanks to CFRU:
Press Start in the bag to sort items
Use L to toggle Auto Run
Select multiple key items!
Press L on a move you're using in battle to check its info

Known Bugs
Freezes can happen randomly, although its extremely rare. And I will stress randomly. It’s only happened to me twice in my two playthroughs, and my testers have on average faced two in a single full playthrough. Just make sure to save often; for me it’s happened twice when opening the bag.
For whatever reason, the options page leads to a freeze... For the time being, the options menu simply does nothing and exits the start menu instead. However, text speed has been set to Fast by default, and Battle Style was going to be forced to Set anyway. This is mainly a big bummer if you like to turn off Battle Anims and of course box style customization; I'm really sorry about this...
Boss AI can act really stupid from time to time
A lot of new DLC moves have placeholder animations atm
If you select a shiny option from the Game Corner but you dont have enough money for it, you will get rejected like normal. However, if you immediately talk to him again and try to buy a Pokemon without the shiny option, he will act as if you chose the shiny option. If this happens, leaving the room and coming back should fix this.

Johto Gym Leaders & Archer don't have their corresponding Overworld yet
Can't get Floette Eternal's Hidden Ability from Game Corner (it sucks anyways so I cba to fix this lol)
A lot of inconsistent de-capitilizations
There isn't an option to give a nickname when receiving my scripted gift Pokemon, and it won't give you a notification of it being sent to a box if your party is full either. This was out of laziness.
The weird pink blob on the summary screen (you can see it in the screenshots)
Twave person in Silph Co doesn’t face you
Brendan rival battle in Vermillion has inconsistent font color
Part of mortys dialogue is cut off
Part of Lt Surges losing dialogue in rematch is cut off
Can't get Floette Eternal's Hidden Ability from Game Corner (it sucks anyways so I cba to fix this lol)
There isn't an option to give a nickname when receiving my scripted gift Pokemon, and it won't give you a notification of it being sent to a box if your party is full either. This was out of laziness.

I get a warning about real time clock not being enabled. I can't save in-game. Day/night cycle isn't working. What to do?
Make sure your emulator has Real Time Clock (RTC) enabled. Also, save type HAS to be set to flash 128K. If you started playing without this, you will have to start over. Delete your save file, make sure your emulator is set up correctly and ONLY THEN open the rom. If you did everything correctly, there shouldn't be a warning about RTC not being enabled anymore.

What about HM moves? Do I need HM slave(s)?
No, HM moves have been reworked, you no longer need to teach it to your Pokémon to progress the game. All you need is the corresponding badge and the HM in your bag.

Where is the move relearner?
The move relearner is in Cerulean City, he wants shrooms in return.

Is there an EV checker/EV subtracter? Is there a way to change Pokémon's ability?
Yes, there are nerds in Saffron City's fan club house.

Where is the name rater?
The name rater is in Lavender Town, same as in vanilla FR/LG.

Where is the happiness checker guy?
Happiness checker guy is in Cerulean City, replacing the Barry Master guy from vanilla FR/LG. In the house next to him is also a guy that can groom your Pokemon to increase their happiness.
Are Sevii Islands available?
As of now, the game ends after becoming the Champion. Sevii Islands are currently not part of the game.

How does the EXP. Share work?
It's gen 8 EXP. Share. The EXP from battles is distributed amongst ALL of your party Pokemon even if some of them did not participate in the battle. You receive it early on, before the 1st gym battle. The EXP. Share is NOT in your bag and it can't be turned off, the game has been balanced around it in terms of opposing trainer's levels.

My Pokemon get almost no experience from battles? Is my game broken???
If your Pokemon gets reduced amount of experience, it means it hit a level cap before the next important battle (gym leaders, Team Rocket boss, E4 etc.). When you beat the next important battle, the level cap will increase again.

The game is too hard! Make it easier!
The point of this hack was to make it hard and challenging in a reasonable way, not just increasing level curve like crazy. If it's too hard for you, then this hack is probably not for you.

I found a bug, what to do?
First, check #known-bugs to see if that bug isn't already known. If it isn't there, report the bug in #bugreports , if possible, provide screenshots and videos and be as detailed as possible.

Where can I restore fossil Pokémon?
Same as in vanilla FRLG, Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Lab.

How do I transform the three forces of nature Pokémon to their alternate forms?
Talk to a scientist in Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Lab.
Is there an egg tutor?
Yes, he is located in Fuchsia City. He wants Heart Scales in return.

Are there any other move tutors?

What are the chances of finding a pokemon with hidden ability using dex nav?
the odds of finding hidden ability is 5% at search level 10, 15% at search level 25, 20% at search level 50, 23% at search level 100

How do I mega evolve?
You get Mega Ring after finishing the Silph Co. event, right before Sabrina. If you have the proper mega stone equipped, you can mega evolve your Pokémon during battle by pressing the select button before selecting a move.

How do I update the game to a newer version without having to start over?
Save your current progress using the in-game save (not save state!) in a safe place. (a Pokémon Center for example)
Close the game and delete the patched .gba file. (or better, move it to a different folder in case you mess this up)
Patch the new version .ups onto a CLEAN fire red rom again (1636 squirrels).
Place the newly patched .gba game into the same folder where your previous version was. Make sure the name of your game and save file is the same.
Open the newly patched .gba and load your save.

Where do I find Mega Stones for my starter Pokémon?
Go to the building that connects Cycling Road and Celadon City, and talk to the aid upstairs.


This game is a GBA Hack Rom in English. It's Beta and maybe it can be updated in the future. But it's playable so I will add it to Completed Category!
