Pokemon Red Full Color Hack

Hack of Pokémon: Red Version

Description:

This is a colorization hack of Pokemon Red and Blue, done entirely using ASM. It takes full advantage of Gameboy Color hardware, which is much more capable than the Super Gameboy. The overworld is fully and properly colorized, and with colorized attack sprites, even battles are more colorful!

In addition to color, Pokemon and Trainer sprites have been imported from Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal, and so has the battle HUD. If you don’t want this, the “vanilla” patch does not touch these.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Country: USA/EUR
  • Internal Checksum: 91e6

The Best version of Red, but

Reviewed By: semolous on 04 Dec 2020

I’ve beat the game several times already, and each time I found it to be very enjoyable. If I had to choose one issue its that I wish it was compatibile with the gender select and gen 6 typing hacks. Other than that, the game’s great, and very nice to look at.

Version 1.2 Recommended - Yes
