Pokemon Radical Red ROM Hack

In the Pokemon Radical Red ROM hack, the game is very similar to FireRed, but the difficulty is scaled up, and tons of features are added. Not needing to teach Pokemon HMs, DexNav, Gen 6 Exp Share, Nature Changer, and tons of other quality of life updates. This Pokemon ROM gives you the capability to build an absolutely LETHAL team. And you’ll need it. The trainer AI is much better, and their team compositions are very tough. You’ll have a blast trying to get through this! There are so many cool additions to this game. You can tell someone really put a lot of heart and effort into making sure this is the perfect Pokemon ROM Hack. You will not find another rom hack at this level of quality. And if you do, please let me know!


I’ve played Pokemon for as long as I can remember. It was probably one of the first games I’ve played. As I’ve grown, my love for the games has not changed, and neither have the Pokemon games. Unfortunately, as I’ve gotten older, the games have begun to feel quite a bit easier. No longer do I struggled to get past my rival, or beat the gym battles. Radical Red has really changed the series for me. With this game’s difficulty, I can finally reexperience the challenge of getting stuck on a fight and having to go back to the drawing board. For example, sometimes you have to go back and rebuild your team completely just to get through a fight; it is so engaging compared to the regular series games. This ROM hack will kick your ass if you’re not somewhat experienced with Pokemon.


This game has features in spades. Basically, every quality of life update that you can think of, is included. And not updates that ruin the flow or difficulty of the game, either. They’re all perfectly integrated to feel natural and direct focus towards the battling. I’ll list just a FEW of the features below.

  • Mega Evolution
  • All battle items
  • Reusable TMs
  • EV Training Gear
  • Hidden Abilities
  • Day/Night cycles
  • DexNav (this thing is kickass)
  • Turbo Speed gameplay
  • Improved AI
  • Custom difficulty settings: This is my favorite change, cause I can lower the difficulty and try to Nuzlocke this game, which is extremely challenging for me

This is just a SAMPLE of all the changes that have been made. The list goes on and on. It’s best just to play it and see all the changes.
