Pokemon Red Blue SGB Palettes and Spaceworld BackSprites

Hack of Pokémon: Red Version


This is an improvement patch for Pokémon Red and Blue that to adds limited color to the game when played in GBC mode as well as add the higher resolution Gold/Silver beta back sprites from Spaceworld ‘97. The color palettes are done in such a way that the games maintain backwards compatibility with the DMG (thanks to jojobear13 from pokecommunity). One version of the patch (for Blue) will also change the in-game trades and wild Pokémon locations to that of the Japanese Blue version. Don’t expect this patch to be compatible with any other patch of the game.
