Title: Best base ROM for a Pokemon hack
Post by: Psilocybin on July 12, 2017, 08:38:01 am
Hey everyone. I'm abput to hack my first pokemon game but I have a question regarding the best base ROM to start out with.

I was planning on making a simple hack just to learn and figure stuff out, I'd like to use at least a generation 3 base game such as emerald or fire red.

Which pokemon game would you recommend for a beginner to hack?

It depends on what exactly you want to do.  Many of the Pokemon games have game-specific utilities that can be used to modify them, but experience with game-specific utilities will probably not help you if you want to do more extensive hacking later.

if you're going to do gen 3 you're probably better off doing Fire Red or Emerald tbh
