Pokémon Throwback

Hack of Pokémon: FireRed Version

Description:

Pokémon Throwback is a hack created to serve as the definitive version of the original Kanto journey. Based off of Pokémon FireRed, Throwback includes a bevy of features and fixes to make it worth using over the base games.

Features:

  • A GB Player item allows for players to hear the original 8-bit music in the game, as well as switch between it and the standard FR/LG music at any time.
  • Reasonable Pokémon placement throughout the game - taking cues from all iterations of the first generation games, including Yellow and Japanese Blue - ensures that all Pokémon from the first two generations are obtainable through official-esque means (including canon evolution methods).
  • The main characters now wear clothing similar to their initial depictions in the original games and related media.
  • All text has been decapitalized in a manner consistent with the most recent games.
  • TMs and move tutors are infinitely reusable.
  • Various bug fixes for the original game.
  • Trees only need to be cut once, you can run indoors, several more items are now obtainable within the game, many “tutorial” moments from the game have been removed, and much, much more!

Note that the title of the hack in-game is simply Pokémon (subtitled “Pocket Monsters” in the credits). This is because the game within is an updated edition of the original adventure from 1996 (1998 internationally) and is version-agnostic.

Users can apply the entire patch, or pick certain options from the individual patches located in the folders from the .zip download if they so choose.

User Review Information

The definitive FireRed.

Reviewed By: Chronosplit on 29 Mar 2017

This is without of doubt the best mod for FireRed that pertains to just plain making the game better. It is indeed refreshing to see hacks like this that don’t seek to improve the game any further than this, and instead let the game itself shine on it’s own. Even better is that similar to projects like Sonic 3 Complete there is a set of individual patches for those who don’t want every single thing this hack provides.

The player who just wants to play Pokemon on an emulator cannot ask anything more, this is pretty perfect.

With the new update(s) you have some of the best player sprite recreations I’ve encountered as of yet, and a boatload of sound improvements.
