(Final - Normal)


(Final - Challenge)


Name: Pokemon Unova Red
Type: GB
Hack of: Red
Language: English


Unova Red is a re-imagining of Generation 1, but using the Pokedex from Generation 5. This is because the Unova Pokedex was designed to stand alone without any Pokemon from additional regions, much like the original Pokedex. The plot is effectively identical to the Generation 1 games, the only major change is in the Pokemon available.


  • All 156 Generation 5 Pokemon
  • Trade & friendly evolutions changed to either level up or item evolutions
  • Dark and Steel types added
  • Type chart updated to Gen 5
  • Attacks still determine physical or special damage based on type
  • Ghost => Special, Dark => Physical
  • New moves
  • Moves updated to match their stats from Gen 5






  1. In case it wasn't obvious, this is a GameBoy ROM hack. If you're using VBA, Options -> Gameboy -> SGB to play in color.

    1. Lol I have no idea who that guy is. If you click on my name, it should take you to my Google+ profile.

    2. Hey knuckle San please show me any mega Rom hacks please

    3. ^ Try Gaia, if you haven't. Maybe Sky Twilight as well. If you don't want a new story, then Nameless FireRed Project, Theta Emerald EX, Omega Red, etc.

  3. This hack is worth your time. I may play it again because I love this one so much. Unova is one of my favorite regions and this hack made me realize how much I cared about it.

    1. But theres a problem, all the Gen 5 cries are Gen 1.. kinda dissapointing to be honest

  4. So, only the Unova Pokémon are obtainable?

  5. Difference between Normal and Challenge versions?

    1. "All trainers have had their levels increased along a steady curve, with a few additional trainers added to the early game. In addition, the battle style will always be on 'SET' regardless of the options. Finally, Revives and HP restoring items such as Potions, Super Potions, Hyper Potions, Max Potions, Fresh Water, Soda Pop, and Lemonade cannot be used in battle. Max Revives, however, can be used in battle, as there are a finite amount available. Similarly, Full Restores can be used in battle as well, though they, like Max Revives, cannot be purchased, even at Indigo Plateau. Status healing items, including Full Heals, and PP restoring items are unchanged, and can be used freely in battle."

    2. I'm curious, since you can't buy Full Restores or Max Revives in Challenge Mode, does this mean you can buy them on Normal Mode, or are they just not available to purchase at all in this hack?

    3. From the quote it looks like you can buy them from the Indigo Plateau in the Normal Version.

    1. Yes, the Challenge patch is supposed to be harder. But according to one of the comments I read, it's still not that challenging.

    1. Sorry, I couldn't find anything on Swadloon. It most likely evolves by level up, Leaf Stone or Moon Stone.

  8. would pokemon red game shark codes work for this?

    1. Probably. Make a backup save just to be safe.
