Pokemon Aquamarine and its eight variants are ROM hacks of FireRed that takes place in Manta, an entirely new region based off South America. The player character mysteriously turns into a Mew, and takes on a journey as a Pokémon trainer to figure out how to turn back to human.

Each variant corresponds with a different Eevee evolution. The differences between versions are minor and mostly aesthetic, so it is recommended you go with your favorite!


Pokemon Aquamarine opens with the player character having a strange dream. A ghostly figure named Ilex claims that the player has turned into a Mew, and must embark on a journey to return to their human body. The player must be careful as Manta is home to Team Tactix, a group of dubious scientists who study Pokémon genetics. It is thought that the influx of Shiny Pokémon in Manta is due to their experiments. Could they be the ones responsible for turning the player into a Mew?

The game diverges whether the player chooses to play as a boy or a girl. As a boy, the player turns into a regular Mew. As a girl, the player turns into a Shiny Mew. The events of the game vary depending on this choice, similar to the version exclusive changes of the main series.
